Wow! This little oasis was beautiful! An adorable little flat located a block from the downtown Lapa scene. Located on a charming little hill, you have to climb some stairs but that will help to work off all the food and drink you will consume in Lapa.
Eduardo and Raimundo are so darling! They welcomed us with little snacks of cheese and ham sandwhiches, and in the fridge was cold Brasilian Beer! What a treat. And later, Eduardo brought us some soup. It was so sweet.
Plus que les bienvenus nous étions à la maison.

Eduardo is very friendly, easy going and always ready to help and give indications and recommendations on how to make the most of the cidade maravilhosa!
The apartment is consistent with the pictures and the bohemian style of Santa Teresa.
The bathroom and kitchen are quite tight, but Eduardo told us he is planning on making some improvement there.
Very well located, I recommend it.
Thank you Eduardo e Raimundo até mais!
Que grande prazer de ficar com Eudardo & Raimundo! Risonhos, sympaticos, prestativos .. foi momentos otimos! Obrigado ^^ E a casa é fantastica! Si voce quer ficar em um lugar no Rio, vai le encontrar ^^ Obrigado amigos, muito obrigado!
The best place I've ever been in Rio, go for it! Eduardo e Raimundo are just great ^^ A real pleasure!
Eduardo and Raimundo provided us with the best hospitality we had in the whole 2 weeks of being in Brasil for the world cup!
The beds were comfortable and Lapa provided plenty of options for good food and Entertainment. The apartment is close enough to the metro as well as being away from the hustle of Vila.
Saudade Brasil! Saudade Cachaca!
Eduardo & Raimundo are the perfect hosts in every way. Communication, prior to and during our stay was excellent. Nothing was too much trouble for them and they made sure that our stay was as comfortable as possible. They are also very passionate about the local community and it's fantastic culture. They provide us with lots of useful information and recommendations about places to visit based on our discussions with them (we managed to communicate easily despite our limited Portuguese).
The apartment has been decorated and furnished in an imaginative way, making very good use of the space available and is very comfortable and light. We felt very much at home immediately. The hosts also added little touches which made us feel very welcome, including some provisions e.g. fresh fruit and drinks. There is also a large external terrace area where you can sit and relax, with great views of Santa Teresa and the surrounding area.
The accommodation is located on a quiet street within 5 minutes walk of both the centre of Santa Teresa and Lapa, which both have plentiful bars, restaurants, galleries and other cultural sights that can be explored. Public transport, both bus and metro, is easily accessible in Lapa, as too are taxis.
We felt very safe within the area and would recommend the studio as a great base for exploring Rio.
If we return to Rio, we would definitely stay at the studio and we will stay in contact with Eduardo & Raimundo, who are exceptionally generous hosts, who we now regard as friends.
Eduardo and Raimundo are very friendly and nice guys. They helped us with everything we needed. Even though it was only one night we enjoyed Santa Teresa. It was only a few blocks above Lapa where we enjoyed a nice dinner. I would have liked to have more time to talk with Eduardo and Raimundo and a tour of their beautiful house. Maybe next time.
Thank you guys!
