About this listing

I've been in this apartment for the past 19 years and I guess I managed to transform it in a real home, where everyone feels good and welcomed. Friends come and go, and every guest I've hosted, loved to stay here. I'm a painter and graphic designer.

The space

Very cosy bedroom! It is equipped with mini fridge and microwave, so you can have small meals. The bathroom is exclusive for your use. It is very independent, right at the entrance, so you can come and go without even entering my apartment.

Guest access

Only the room which is located right at the entrance, very independent.

Interaction with guests

Since I work at home I'll be always available to help you out with information on how to get around. I speak fluent english, french and have some knowledge in spanish.

The neighborhood

The apartment is located in Jardim Botânico District, at the South Zone of Rio de Janeiro, one block away from the Bothanical Gardens, 2 blocks from the Lagoon, and a beautiful 30 min walk to Ipanema Beach, along the Laggon.
The district is very charming with lots of bars , restaurants , supermarkets , bakeries banks and transportation 24hs. There's a lot of nature around and it's a very trendy neighborhood, since many artists have their studios here.

Getting around

Very easy access since it's a main street, lots of taxis. There are also bus lines to practically everywhere in Rio. And the special metro bus stop, that takes you straight to the metro stations with less stops than the common buses, are 1 block away from my home.

Other things to note

I have cats but they will never go inside your room.
I live on a penthouse, to get here you take the elevator until the 4th floor and then stairs up to the 5th floor.

Rio de Janeiro, Brazil · Joined in May 2011

I'm a painter and a graphic designer. I lived and studied in Europe for almost 9 years but ended up coming back to Rio. Nowadays Rio is my main inspiration, and my paintings and sculptures are all about this magical city! I'm a very social person and I love to meet new people!
