The space

We have a brand new queen size bed for the guest room.
NEW QUEEN SIZE MATTRESS, new sheets and new pillows, everything is anti-allergic and anti-mite. We decorated the room with one beautiful vintage wooden desk that belonged to our grandmother. We offer the big purple wardrobe, into the room, to the guests organize their stuff. There is towels, sheets, blankets, one medium mirror, and a fan.

We are so happy because our home has never been so beautiful than now. We are married for 7 years and Pedro lives in this house for 10 years. Here is our sweet family home. We don't have pets, children and we don't smoke. We have one amazing grand piano, instruments, cds, books and plants.

We like to rent because we like to share experiences and receive people from around the word who like to travel. Always we receive good and sweet guests from airbnb.

Enjoy the hypest bohemian neighborhood in the city. A few minutes walk from Lapa, the Sambódromo and some of the sweetest bars and cafes in town!

We´re a friendly musician/actress couple. The guest room has an independent entrance for better privacy, and guests have access to the fully equiped kitchen (shared with the hosts), wireless internet, shared bathroom and a living room with a hammock and a breathtaking view of downtown Rio, the Guanabara bay and, on clear days, the mountain range afar. Our apartament is gay friendly.

We hope you have a delightful stay and enjoy the city to the fullest!!! Whether it´s your first or thousandth visit to Rio, there are a few suggestions we always like to offer, which are part of what brings magic to our day to day life.

Have a pizza and a beer (or a cachaça) at Goyabeira, one of the bars in Largo das Neves, a couple hundred meters to the right of our front door. Take a walk following the tracks towards the left, and have another beer (and a meat “croquete”) at Armazém S. Thiago, the famous “Bar do Gomes”. For a cheap, honest, homey meal, the Nega Tereza restaurant can´t be beat. For a special occasion, Aprazível (a 5 star gourmet restaurant with a killer view and a classy rustic ambiance – good for a wedding proposal). Getting close to Largo dos Guimarães (always following the tracks) some argentinians opened the finest café in town: Cafecito. Great sandwiches, great coffe, great local draft beer, and great Ice Cream – do try the fig+nuts one.

About a hundred meters down the road, Arnaudo is the choice for traditional northeastern brazil food, and Espirito Santa has got killer gourmet food from the Amazon region!
A mere 10 minute bus ride, or 15 minute walk from here, and you´re in Lapa, the heart of Rio nightlife. Check out Carioca da Gema and Rio Scenarium, for a more groomed, tourist friendly experience (with amazing music!) or check out one of the favorite hype-alternative college cariocas hangout: the 100+ years old art deco ballroom Clube dos Democráticos.

Ask us about other adventures and hot spots, in or out of the Carnaval craze, and we´ll be more than happy to give you directions!

Guest access

Guests have access to our lovely living room with the hammock (the star of the house) and an amazing view of the city, kitchen, bathroom and laundry space with washer.

Interaction with guests

Jessica and I love to make new friends and to talk about our city and give suggestions and recommendations on how to make the most out of their stay.

The neighborhood

Some people call Santa Teresa the "Montmartre of Rio". It's on top of a hill from where you can see most of the city, including Guanabara Bay, and it's full of nice historic buildings and little cafes and restaurants, that make it the cultural and bohemian hub of the city.

Getting around

There is one bus line that passes in front of the apartment and takes you directly to the heart of downtown Rio and to the bohemian Lapa neighborhood.

Pedro and Jessica were great with pre-trip communication. Their place in Santa Teresa is gorgeous. We had some surprises with the visit itself as they were out of town but they handled everything very professionally.

Staying at Pedro's apartment was terrific! The neighborhood was a really cool place to explore and easy to get down to Copacabana or anywhere by Uber. I met Pedro and Jessica's friend, Camilo, who was very friendly and took me to some fun cultural events. All three of them speak English which made everything easier for me! Pedro and Jessica unfortunately were not there during my stay, but very easy to communicate with by email. Also, the apartment is really nice - I loved reading in the hammock by the window! Great views of the city too!

Pedro and Jessica are wonderful! They gave us a lot of great tips and insights to the city and were very helpful in every way. The apartment made us feel at home, it was cosy and atmospheric. We really enjoyed staying in the neighbourhood of Santa Teresa with its small town vibe and chilled out restaurants. Thank you Pedro, Jessica and Dora (the kitten)!

We (me and my boyfriend) stayed for almost three weeks at Pedro's and Jessica's house and loved it! We were there over Christmas and New Years and had a great experience. The neighborhood of Santa Teresa is great! Yes you do need a little time to get to copacabana but Santa Teresa is a great experience and traveling should be fun and relaxing! So go for it! Just 100 m from the apartment is the "largo dos neves", a small plaza where almost every night people from the neighborhood celebrating birthdays or share a beer together! A great pizza place and a small bar owned by a German and a French guy are there as well. You have a great view over the city and feel home right away. Not only in the neighborhood but also in the apartment! Very clean and a lot of space. During our stay Pedro was gone and Jessica and her mom part time there, we had a great time. Jessica gave us a lot of tips and also Alexandre who cared for the cat while Jessica was gone, is very nice and helpful (you need to speak Portuguese though, which I did so it was easy). The kitchen is full equipped, we were not missing a thing. :) thank you very much for the stay! We can definitely recommend it and hope to meet Jessica and Pedro so again.

Jess and Pedro received us as we were family. Late door opening (not an incitation for other next airbnbers), nice breakfast, well cleaned bedroom with towels, it looked better than any hostel or pousada! The flat is charming, the view is outstanding, the neighborhood is charming. What else? We can't wait to come back in Rio to discover again and again the city with these amazing hosts... or to welcome them in Paris... as friends!

I stayed four nights and enjoyed this very much. Santa teresa is a good base from which to explore the city, and the flat is beautiful. The guest's room is large, with some space in a wardrobe. I had access to the kitchen and the fridge, as well as the washing machine, which really helped after some time travelling already. I didn't meet Pedro as he was away at the time. He arranged for a friend, Alexandre, to welcome me to the flat and stay there a couple of nights. Alexandre was very friendly and welcoming, but spoke very little English. As I have no Portuguese, this was problematic. I was disappointed, as I'd expressly searched for accommodation hosted by English, French or German speakers, and Pedro did not tell me he would be absent until a few days before my arrival. With more notice, I think I might have made other arrangements. Alexandre did not seem to know much about public transport for the area, and gave me wrong information about local buses (or I misunderstood, I don't know. Either way, I ended up going to the wrong place). One consequence is that I did a lot of uphill walking in the heat and spent money on taxis unnecessarily: it wasn't until the last evening when I was checking the room for forgotten items that I found a sheet in English with some relevant information. I don't know why this was not put in a more prominent place or why Alexandre did not give it to me, it really would have saved a lot of trouble. Another consequence is that I was unable to call on local knowledge of the city and events - which was my main reason for using airbnb in the first place. So in this respect, my stay was equivalent to staying in a moderately priced hotel, there was little advantage in having stayed in someone's home. Although a hotel would have had more information about the local area, including relevant transport, as well as a shower which didn't require a special knack to operate effectively.

We re a friendly and quiet musician / actress couple. Can't live without our friends (new and old), our passports and suitcases, ready to go! In our city, as hosts, and in other places, as guests, we love to enjoy the cultural life to the fullest -- you're likely to find us on theaters, concerts, dance shows, bookstores, and just roaming around interesting and lively neighborhoods. Traveling is mingling, much more than taking pictures!
