The Space

Stay in a real studio restoration of artworks. Independent Studio in century-old house in the more traditional, historic and charming neighborhood of Rio de Janeiro, Santa Teresa. Located on the main street of the neighborhood, with direct access to Lapa. Security, tranquility and privacy. Garden with fruit trees and unobstructed. We received with care and attention we like to be received. We are a couple of men, (a historian and other restorative / artist), like history, music and fine arts mainly. We love our neighborhood and our city. We reject any kind of prejudice. And illicit drugs.

Our house is centenary building dated 1911, is located in the more traditional, historic and charming neighborhood of Rio de Janeiro Santa Teresa. Located on the main street of the neighborhood, with direct access to Lapa, the bohemian center of Rio with its many restaurants, bars and samba.
The property comprises an architectural one in the city of Rio de Janeiro and is a group of buildings in eclectic style characteristic of the early twentieth century.
We hugged by a nice garden with a clear view to the street and it is situated above street level, a beautiful view from the center of cities.
The apartment is Independent. A charming fully renovated basement with bathroom, eat-in kitchen and den. Airy, cool and cozy in his rustic style.

Our town:
Meet the Rio de Janeiro is to enjoy all that it offers and enchants its residents and its tourists. Geographically located in a place which itself tells the story of Rio de Janeiro, and easy access to Lapa. You may also know the Arcos da Lapa, formerly the Carioca Aqueduct, which is regarded as the larger architectural work undertaken in Brazil during the colonial period, is today one of the postcards of the city, most representative symbol of Old Rio preserved linking Lapa to Santa Teresa.

We are a couple of men, (a historian and other restorative / artist), like history, music and fine arts especially. We love our neighborhood and our city.

Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • 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!

    It was a pleasure host you David. And it will be a great pleasure to receive you to a cafe in my house this time, when you return to Rio. Go training the Portuguese, ok?

  • Our stay was wonderful! The apartment is charming and well equipped, the building is beautiful and this area of Santa Teresa is perfectly located near night life of Lapa and buses to other parts of Rio. Eduardo & Raimundo were perfect hosts and the champagne for New Years was lovely!

  • Eduardo & Raimundo are great host and they helped us in getting in touch with the true Carioca spirit! The apartment is located in a good position between Lapa and Santa Tereza districts and the view from the terrace is spectacular.
    The flat in itself is ok for a short stay, bright-coloured, simple, located at the lower level of their house. Sufficiently spacious yet not particularly illuminated. Maybe in the spartan bathroom a better shower courtain could help :-)

  • Eduardo & Raimundo are lovely hosts! After 15 days of Rio, they were our last stop before flyer back to Europe and that was a good choice. We enjoyed staying at their beautiful house in the middle of the fine Santa Teresa area and we felt very much the way they take care about their guests. Our stay was short, just one night, but enough to take nice en happy memories of Rio and the cariocas with us back home.

  • A great stay in a fabulous location. We felt safe staying with Eduardo and Raimundo during a hectic time in the city. They also brought us goodies which was a nice touch. I would definitely recommend this studio due to its great hosts and location, the Santa Teresa district is really worth a visit!

  • Eduardo and Raimundo were lovely hosts. They were very welcoming and gave us great help in negotiating Rio during the new year period. The apartment has great character and is in a great location - in beautiful Santa Teresa and close to bustling Lapa. We had a wonderful time staying here.

  • A beautiful retreat in an energetic, exciting city, Eduardo and Raimundo were the hosts that dreams are made of. The apartment itself is nestled conveniently between Lapa and Santa Theresa two of the most exciting, interesting and artistic areas of Rio. Our wonderful hosts not only told us about secret gems of places to visit not highlighted by any guidebook, they also left us food from their supper when we got in after dancing til the early hours of the morning. The apartment is safe, spacious and clean with a great view of the city. If you are visiting Rio I insist you stay here.
