Ideally you can start your day with breakfast in the shade of the little bamboo garden.
This place is magic and allows you even on a very hot day to enjoy a good book or a little siesta and to refresh your energies thanks to the fresh wind blowing through the bamboo canes.
The house is very comfortable for 5 persons.
It is also ideal for families with children because of its garden and the pleseant neighborhood.
Only exeptionally we accept 6 persons
In this case the extra person could sleep on the sofa (Futon) in the livingroom.

The Bamboo House was charming! It's perfectly located in the heart of Santa Teresa, a quiet and vibrant neighbourhood of Rio.
The house is nicely decorated, has an artitistic soul and a wonderful garden. We had a very good time there and we highly recommend if you want to enjoy the best of Rio while staying in a confortable place with character.
The reservation was canceled the day before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Superbe maison, beaucoup de charme, placée juste devant la place "largo das neves" ou des animations très familiales ont lieu souvent, à 5 mns a pied du coeur de Santa Teresa, beaucoup de restaus et de bars à côté (je conseile le bar do mineiro, sobrenatural et apravizel). Nous avons passé une semaine parfaite, la maison est fraîche malgré la chaleur, le quartier est le plus beau de Rio. Monika a été très accueillante et répond très vite aux emails. Si nous revenons à Rio, sûrs nous reviendrons à la bamboo house.
What a wonderful stay in Santa Teresa ! Monika's apartment is ideally located on a lovely square, where all the neighbours meet at the end of the week to share, make music, dance, eat...
Santa Teresa was, in our opinion, the best in Rio : authentic, charming, full of life and colors.
The flat was perfect for 5 people. It's the ideal place to stay if you like the country house bohemian style. If you're looking for a 5* hotel, be on your way. The confort is simple and the bathroom is a "work in progress" but the space, the decoration and the small garden make you feel at home. Watch out for the monkeys in the bamboos, willing to share your breakfast !
Thanks again Monika for this immersion in Santa Teresa and thank you Vera for your smily welcome and advice.
The Bamboo House was the most amazing place to stay in Rio! We had a group of 4 (two couples) and it was just perfect.
The house was quirky and cute and more than we expected. The pictures on this site really don't do it justice. It is bigger than we first expected and full or character.
Santa Teresa is an amazing area and the location of the house is perfect.
Mauricio and Vera were both fantastic hosts always willing to help and got back to us very quickly each time we had an enquiry.
We could not have asked for anything more.
Thank you Mauricio, Vera and airbnb!
Ridiculously amazing house.. one of the most beautiful places I've ever seen... Thank You!!
