The room has Queen super comfortable bed, two windows offering a beautiful view of the city, and nice lighting and ventilation and curtains.
The studio has table and lamp for studying and working, bookcase with books and DVDs and access to wi-fi.
The kitchen is fully equipped and can be used at will.
We do not charge for cleaning.
We do not charge for use of laundry.
Here you can enjoy a delicious Italian espresso coffe.
Consult me about prices for three people.
Better still, all this tranquility is 5 minutes from Lapa, the bohemian neighborhood of Rio de Janeiro.
In the morning you can hear the singing of the birds and parrots in your window and balcony.

Talk to me about favela tour and see the harmony and conviviality walking along the narrow streets, lifestyle and real contact with people living in the community where you learn about the history, culture and geography of the area.

For longer stays, we offer a cell phone for your use, talk to me.

  • The room was great. Fantastic hosts. Highly recommended.

    Evandro was super-friendly and helpful. The location is a short walk to either Lapa or Santa Teresa. Use of the washing machine and kitchen are included. Nice city view from the deck. Excellent wifi.

    Thank you for a wonderful stay!

  • My stay was extremely brief in Rio (1 day), but it brought me great comfort to know that I was staying with Evandro/Leonardo. Their home is very beautiful, comfortable, safe and clean. The room I was given was clearly not the one pictured, which was disappointing given the elevated World Cup rate being charged. That should have been made clear in advance. The location was very convenient to transportation and to the Lapa nightlife area. Felt comfortable walking in the neighborhood at all hours. Evandro was very kind and attentive, despite my very brief stay and limited time to get to know him. If I am ever in Rio again, I will definitely look to stay here again.

  • We loved staying with Evandro and Leonardo. The house and the room was everything we were looking for our stay in this beautiful city. We felt like home and both Evandro and Leonardo helped us with everything we need it. They were always open to enjoy a conversation and to share information about the city and the culture. We learned a little portuguese and we shared with them some spanish and english.

    The house is located in an amazing neighbourhood especially for people that want to enjoy the true character of Rio. Lapa is down the hill and Copacabana and Ipanema are close enough by taking a bus. The maracana stadium is also close taking the metro.

    We will definetely stay with Evandro and Leonardo on our next visit to Rio.

    Muito Obrigado

  • Travelling to the other side of the World Alone
    May seem Quite daunting !
    But upon arrival Evandro had a driver waiting for me at the airport.
    Who dropped me straight to the the House
    Within no time at all I felt completely at home,
    So welcomed and genuinely cared for.
    Any advice or information was always at hand.
    This was Truly a memorable stay, in Truly Homely surroundings.
    The room was perfect, with fabulous views from
    the Veranda.
    I can't Thank both Evandro and Leonardo Enough to make this Happen.
    Very Highly Recommended.

  • Great stay! I was there for only one night - too short!

    Evan and Leo were perfect hosts, so helpful and friendly.
    I loved my little room - rustic and interesting.
    And the neighborhood can't be beat!

    Definitely coming back.

  • When I read all these opinions about Evandro before I came I thought they might be too positive to be true. I was totally wrong. Now that I have stayed at his place for 10 days I can say they were far under reality. Evandro and Leo are some of the best people I ever met. As a host, Evandro is just perfect : anticipating all that you may need, answering every question you might have, helping you solving any problem that may surge (like finding a bank accepting French visas ;o). The place is just wonderful. So cosy and bohemian that on some days you might just want to stay at home (because you immediately feel at home) and just enjoy being there. The district is pretty safe (provided that of course you don't hang around with Vuitton bags and a Cartier watch but nobody I think you be as silly as to do so, and you don't need this kind of things in Brazil !). It's full of restaurants, cafés, bars, shops, etc. within walking distance, and with a very typical Brazilian atmosphere that you'll never find in more touristic places like Copacabana or Ipanema. To visit the city, you may take buses on Rua Riachuelo that go almost everywhere, or walk (on day time) until the underground (about 20 minutes). As I hate public transport (in any city of the world, even mine) I preferred renting Rio bikes (you have to download the application and find a free bike, which is more complicated but is worth it) or take taxis (one a the few things that are really cheap in Rio, but they often get stuck in traffic jams) on Rua Riachuelo too. Thanks to Evandro’s advice I saw many places (like the Parque do Lage) that are just wonderful and sometines not highlighted or mentioned on touristic guides. Travelling alone, I was so lucky to be in a place where two other rooms were rented next to mine, so that I can get to know very interesting people and go out with then. Special thanks to Eleonora for having made me discover Santa Tereza and to Axel and his wife for their professional advice (yes, that may happend too !). Hope I can trace back the two others if they read this commentary ;o) !!! To sum up : if you Can, just go there, you’ll never regret it !
