In the coolest neighborhood in town and with a breathtaking view of Rio's landscape, this private and sunny studio is highly esteemed by foreigner visitors. Glass walls make you feel like in an aquarium floating over clouds. That's understandable, for it's one of the highest living spots in town!
Landscape wise, there's a yin and a yang: a view to the Corcovado and the peaceful rain forest on one side. Downtown, Pão de Açucar and Guanabara Bay's ocean on the other.
Silent Loft with 90 square meters, furnished, wireless, sound system, king size bed, bathtub shower and a toilet seat with the most stunning views to Corcovado and Forest, and a 200 degrees cinema vision to the Bay of Guanabara.
Takes two people comfortably, a wonderful King size double bed and can accommodate two or three in the living room, using futons.
With housecleaning service every 7 days* paid separately.

You will be definitely happy in this sacred space.
Equidistant from all points of interest in town. A 10/15 minutes drive or taxi from downtown, the Santos Dumont airport, Lapa, beaches of Copacabana and Ipanema, Lagoa and Botanical Garden. Bordering the Tijuca's Forest national park boundaries. What city in the world you can reach the financial center to a little waterfall in 15 minutes by car ;) ?
At 200 meters from the pacified Prazeres slum, with a harmonious relationship with the community. There is the Cultural Center of the town hall, walking from there also departs the graffiti tour, the community invite us to experiment a direct cultural exchange with real and non-touristy Rio de Janeiro.
Three bus routes and taxis on the doorstep. One can easyly go walking to the center of the neighborhood or to Corcovado. A Refuge (hiding place), high but close to everything.
Close (15 minutes by bus) to museums, subway, cultural centers, antique fairs, street fairs, bars and restaurants.
Interaction with Guests
When I'm in town, I love to give attention to my guests, since I am a lover of traveling and this amazing city.
In the historic neighborhood of Santa Teresa with the best street carnival in the city, near the Samba and beer. A neighborhood with the true spirit of the World Cup. Bohemia, games in the streets adorned, bars with intellectual football fans, just in Santa Teresa!
The street reference for Taxis , deliveries and visitors is EQUITATIVA CONDOMINIUM, near CEAT school and the Fire Department of Santa Teresa .
Other Things to Note
The home key is key that we call tetra (a thick key, with four sides, use it with the small dot/ball up!)
The two common keys are for the elevator, a real legend in the Condominium. A rare elevator chute with Swiss technology. It's more like a toy than a lift, have fun! One of the keys opens the door to the elevator at the Condominium square, and the other down on the street (pedestrian entrance).
Preference for couples. Rigorous with visitors staying overnight without previous notice.
Do not make copies of the house keys.
Do not be loud after 10pm. I have a delicate relationship with the downstairs neighbor.
When absent, turn lights and other devices off (the electricity bill might come very expensive if this happens)
Parties are not allowed.
Let us know, before the check out, if any objects were broken or damages.
be happy the maximum time to get.
About the Host, Giulio
I'm Giulio, an authentic Brazilian blood/All in one, son of Indians, blacks, Spanish and Italian people. Ardent lover of Rio, carioca da gema (those born in the city). Naturalist, 41 years. I believe in the Virgin Mary of backpackers :) because I am extremely happy with my many travels around the world. Ever known countries in 3 continents, the most incredible: Iceland, Greece, Italy, Morocco and Venezuela. I really like to provide the sensory side of my city and my house can be an extension of this love I have for the place that I live. Be in the community of airbnb is a vote of confidence in other travelers, because my house is like a temple.
I love to travel, photography, hiking, yoga, glamping (camp in comfort) and contact improvisation dance.
I speak Spanish and an intermediate English.
