This big room (21 m2) has a private bathroom and a big varanda with an wonderful view of city center. It is a very unique room specially located under a mango tree which birds and small monkeys are used to visit.
Our house is known as “Canto da Carambola”. It is a special place for those who like nature, art and simplicity. Fruit trees, flowers, birds and small monkeys are all around. Parrots, toucans and owls also visit us frequently.
High ceiling (4m) and large windows opened to a small garden help keep room fresh with natural light and comfortable temperature.
We have two lovely dogs: Bebel and Olavo, and two nice cats: Maria and Tomzé. From terrace and backyard, we have a really wonderful view of downtown and Guanabara Bay.

Staying with elmiro and sergio was like staying at a friends house. In one word an unforgettable experience. They were incredibly helpful in making our stay as comfortable as possible and made sure we had the best time during carnaval. The breakfast is delicious, the view is incredible and the location perfect if you want to get away from the crowdy center. I strongly recommend staying here if you like to feel at home away from home. We loved our stay and will definitely come back!
(Tip if you are from the Netherlands: bring stroopwafels!)
Primero que todo, desde el momento que vi las fotos del lugar me pareció un lugar agradable; una vez que llegamos al ser recibidos por Miro y Sergio de una forma tan amable sabíamos que era la elección perfecta un buen lugar, linda vista de Lapa, Santa Teresa un lugar con construcciones que datan del año 1856... un lugar con mucha historia. Una atención de lujo con mucha alegría y mucho respeto estamos muito agradecidos, esperamos poder volver algún día.... Recomiendo 100%..
