About this listing
Spacious room in a shared ecohouse with a large living space and garden. We are co-creating an urban community. Within walking distance of Sugarloaf Mountain and Copacabana beach and easy access to the rest of Rio.
You can rent the whole room...
The room is in a beautiful shared house. It is a ecohouse that we are developing with the other people who live here. We have a small garden, composting and rain-water harvesting, and a recycling project. It is an urban permaculture laboratory for exploring creative, sustainable, artistic, collective practices.
There is a huge shared living room where we like to hangout with a hammock, small dining table and sofas. There is excellent wifi connection. The house dates back to the 1930s and has lots of period features including beautiful old tiles in the kitchen. The kitchen has plenty of space for cooking, a gas oven, large fridge and well-equipped with pans etc. We also have a washing machine, two showers and toilets
You can rent the whole room. In this case, consult us. The room has a large queen sized bed, with the possibility of two more beds.
We also accept part of the payment in work and services in the community-house.
ps: the house has been recently renovated and will soon have more current photos!!

Botafogo is a beautiful but less visited neighbourhood. It is more residential which means you don't get any harassment yet it is also perfectly located to get everywhere and anywhere in the city being at the cross roads between Copacabana, Lagoa, Urca (and Sugarloaf Mountain) and to go to the centre. We are also really lucky to be able to walk to several beaches and Sugarloaf mountain from here. Botafogo is also a lovely neighbourhood because it has loads of old houses and architecture. It's a beautiful, friendly, safe and green place with supermarkets, banks, lively bars and restaurants all within a few minutes walk.
The house is ideally located to get to all parts of Rio de Janeiro but is tranquil and green being on a slightly smaller road and next to the mountain. It is 5 mins to the bus stops at Shopping Rio Sul where buses will take you to every part of Rio de Janeiro. We are a 10 min walk to the metro stop in Botafogo.
