We are located in Laranjeiras, a neighbourhood in the south zone (Zona Sul) of Rio de Janeiro. Next most of the beaches and nightlife of the city.
We are not located on the main street, however we are very close to it, where there are many bars, restaurants, transportation, etc.
We are very close to the Cristo Redentor (Corcovado) and to the Sugar Loaf (Pão de Açúcar) and also very close to the Aterro do Flamengo, where on Sundays you can go out for a walk or for a jog freely.
We are a couple of minutes away from the Casa Rosa, which is a cultural house, with guitar lessons and at night on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays turns into a great place to go out and have fun. Sunday afternoon they always prepare a special "feijoada" to go along with the great group of Samba musicians.
Santa Teresa, a very traditional and cultural neighbourhood of Rio de Janeiro, is also a few minutes away and this is where you can find several artists such as painters, sculptors and local crafts.
Lapa, the main point of bars and clubs, is about 20 minutes from the house (by bus) and is one of the great tourist points to be visited.
We consider ourselves to be pleasant and friendly hosts and we look forward to welcoming you in our house.
We have both shared or private rooms, which can be ideal for groups or for a lonely traveller or for a couple.
We also offer wireless internet and breakfast.
Come stay with us and experience Rio with all the joy we Brazilians have to offer.

Agatha, junior and his brother daniel were extremely nice and helpful! It was a lot f fun to stay at their place.. everything was very clean, they helped us out whereevr they could and we felt like living home
Nous sommes resté 2 nuits chez Maria et Izabela. Malgré le peu de temps passé nous avons été très bien accueilli. La chambre est conforme à ce que l'on voit sur les photos. Il y a un arrêt de bus très proche, et 10 minutes de marche pour aller au métro. Le quartier est calme.
Maria was very welcoming and very helpful! The house is very big and spacious, and very located to go to Corcovada, the other point of interests are pretty close to by public transportion.
Maria and Daniel were my hosts when I came to Rio, and they were both amazing! Maria was always around to provide suggestions about what to do, where to go, and how to get there. She also mentioned the places that past guests had gone to, and that was really helpful too! They provided a towel and soap when I arrived, which I felt was a really nice touch. Their home was even better than pictured and really comfortable. Laranjeiras is a very safe neighborhood and with easy access to a lot of transport options - I had no problem getting anywhere in Rio, and Cristo Redentor was a 20 minute walk away.
The house was almost 100 years old, traditional one.
Sadly I caught a cold before arriving at Rio.
Izabela was so nice lady and I was helped by her kindness.
Thank you so much!
Perfect quiet location between Copacabana and Botafogo!
Maria helped us to find our way in the city. Thanks to her tips we saved precious time!!!
Shared room is great and big enough to feel comfortable!
This was my first experience with using AirBnB, and i can honestly say that I could not have hoped for a better one. Maria and her two sons were the perfect hosts. They were very insightful when it came to recommending places to go and how to get there. Maria´s warm personaility puts you at ease staight-away and makes you feel at home.
The neighbourhood itself is fine, I had no fears for my safety at anypoint even at night time.

Mother and daugther, both joyful and welcoming. We have lived in Rio de Janeiro most of our life and visited many places, together and separatelly. Maria has lived in the US for 9 years and Izabela for 2 years. We both love to know different cultures. We live with our 2 other family members (Daniel e Junior - sons and brothers). We also adore sports and music. We have a great time meeting new people and creating a fun environment. We speak English and Spanish. We can't live without our family, they are the most important people on the world to us. We have hosted people at our house before and we loved the experience. Our motto in life is to be happy!!!
Mãe e filha, ambas alegres e acolhedoras. Temos vivido no Rio de Janeiro a maior parte de nossa vida e visitamos muitos lugares, juntas e separadamente.
