About This Listing
Located in a private street in the district of Pinheiros, the house benefits from a both quiet and strategic location to explore the city. Spacious and bright, the room can accommodate up to two people. We offer breakfast.
We live in a charming house located in a tree-lined private street in the district of Pinheiros.
We rent a bright and spacious private room on the second floor of the house. Equipped with a comfortable double bed (1.40 x 1.90 m) and a desk, it can accommodate up to two people. A broadband wireless internet connection is available.
We offer a generous breakfast that I prepare myself with local products. Freshly squeezed orange juice, seasonal fruit, yogurt, granola, whole wheat bread, "pão de queijo" (the typical Brazilian cheese bread), cheese, jam, coffee or tea will be waiting for you in the dining room at the time you want.
We speak English, French, Spanish, Italian and Portuguese.
Pinheiros is a vibrant neighborhood that hides some quiet refuges. Here, while living in a peaceful room overlooking the vegetation, you can enjoy a great selection of restaurants, bars, cafes, shops, bookstores, art galleries and street art... It is also strategic located to access (even by foot) a large variety of well known city attractions.
A lively flea market is held every Saturday afternoon at Benedito Calixto square, 400 meters from the house.
Other great neighborhoods can be reached easily. Vila Madalena, known by its galleries, art studios, boutiques of young designers, bars, restaurants and clubs can be reached on foot (1.5 km) or by bus. Jardins, famous for its shops of international brands, is also nearby: Oscar Freire Street, the main axis, passes a few 600 meters from the house.
Pinheiros district is particularly well served by public transportation. Many bus lines lead directly to downtown, Paulista Avenue and other neighborhoods like Vila Madalena, Jardins, Higienópolis or Perdizes. You can also take the subway; the nearest station, Clínicas, is located 800 meters from the house.
We don’t have a garage. If you come by car, you can park in a private parking near the house (we park our car in the same private parking 250 meters away and open 24/7).
Coming from the International Airport of Guarulhos, we recommend you to take a taxi from the Guarucoop company. The amount is fixed and paid in advance in the company’s stores located at the airport exits (around R$150 that you can pay by credit card or in cash). As the airport is located about 32 km from the city, the journey takes at least an hour and a quarter, if you have luck with the traffic !
We hope you to feel home and to take care of ours as if it was your own. The inside areas are non-smoking, but you are allowed to smoke in the front garden. We appreciate the silence and ask guests not to make too much noise after 10 PM.
Fui muito bem recebida pelo Sr. Carlos e pela D. Renata. Perto da casa tem feirinhas gastronômicas e de antiguidades e diversas opções de restaurantes. A casa deles é um charme total, super aconchegante. O café da manhã é muito bem preparado, com muitas variedades de alimentos, e é uma delícia! Eles são pessoas excelentes, bons para trocar uma ideia, e vou levá-los sempre no meu coração! Sou muito agradecida a eles por terem me recebido!
Carlos and his wife were just amazing! Such warm people and beautiful hospitality. Both my wife and I felt truly welcome and at home. Carlos even showed up at a talk that I did and that was really encouraging :). Highly recommend staying with them. Safe and gorgeous neighbourhood and nice clean home and room with tasteful art work everywhere.
Carlos and Renate are fantastic hosts, friendly and caring. They make you feel like home as soon as you arrive. Their B&B is a traditional house in a quiet pedestrian area in the nice neighborhood of Pineros and at walking distance from Villa Madalena (a trendy area).
The house is tastefully decorated, the room comfortable and bright and the abundant fresh breakfast of papaya, fresh orange juice etc. makes a great start of the day.
I did have a wonderful experience staying with Carlos and Renata. They are formidable people and always ready to help and give you information about the city. The neighborhood is very nice, with lots of restaurants, shops, supermarket and just two blocks away from Oscar Freire, a glamorous spot with loads of boutiques (of all prices) and restaurants. Carlos and Renata make you feel at home. The room offered is very spacious and well lit by natural lighting. The bad is very comfortable. Every morning Carlos prepares a delicious and healthy breakfast. All this make your stay very pleasant. I do recommend their home if you are visiting Sao Paulo, a place like no other in the world!
I had a wonderful stay at Carlos' home. It is convenient to the Clinicas Metro station and in the heart of the Pinheiros district of Sao Paulo. Every morning had a wonderful breakfast and he was able to give great advice about how to get around Sao Paulo. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Carlos place.
What made this stay really special was being treated as part of the family from the very first day. As hosts they made me feel welcome because they were very communicative throughout the reservation, we carried wonderful conversations, shared breakfast everyday and had wonderfully personal recommendations for the best local places. Everything in this listing is beautiful, clean and organized, a true oasis for those who want to relax amidst the hustle and bustle of the city. Also this listing is really close to the best the city, the haute couture shopping of Oscar Freire Street and the alternative bohemian neighborhood of Vila Madalena, which means within a few blocks in either direction you have plenty of entertainment options. In case you want to explore farther away, the listings sits between two subway stops on the green line that goes directly to the heart of town. Given its great location and amazing hosts, this listing is a great value for anyone looking to enjoy São Paulo. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Minha estadia neste lugar foi sem igual, fui tão bem recebido que me senti como se estivesse encontrado um novo integrante da família. Realmente este lugar é uma delícia, pois é bem limpo, organizado e aconchegante, um oasis para quem procura desancar um pouco da correria da cidade. Fica perto de tudo, apenas algumas quadras do metro entre a area da Oscar Freitas e início da Vila Madalena, assim você pode caminhar em qualquer direção e encontrar algo interessante para fazer em apenas uma ou duas quadras. Como anfitriões a família inteira fui extremamente atenciosa, foram bem comunicativos quando fiz a reserva e também durante minha estadia. Talvez a melhor coisa foi nosso bate-papo sobre viagens e as dicas que recebi de como aproveitar a cidade. Agradeço a oportunidade de ter conhecido pessoas tão simpáticas e recomendo que façam um reserva já!
About the Host, Carlos
I am a retired independent architect. My wife Renata – also an architect – and I take a great pleasure in welcoming our guests. Apart from architecture, we like contemporary art and cinema. We love cooking and eating well.
We enjoy each opportunity to travel; after traveling around Europe, Latin America and some parts of the United States, we are now looking to explore other continents, through contacts with guests from India, Australia, Morocco...
Despite the critics one can do to living conditions in São Paulo, we love this city where we both live since always. It will be a pleasure to advise you on the paths to take and places to know!

Je suis un architecte indépendant à la retraite. Avec ma femme Renata – elle aussi architecte –, nous prenons grand plaisir à accueillir nos hôtes. En plus de l’architecture, nous nous intéressons à l’art contemporain et au cinéma. Nous adorons faire la cuisine et bien manger.
Bien sûr, nous ne laissons échapper aucune opportunité de voyager ; après avoir parcouru l’Europe, l’Amérique latine et les Etats-Unis, nous envisageons maintenant d’explorer d’autres continents, grâce au contact avec des hôtes venus d’Inde, d’Australie, du Maroc…
Malgré toutes les critiques que l'on peut faire aux conditions de vie à São Paulo, nous aimons cette ville où nous vivons tous les deux depuis toujours. Ce sera un plaisir de vous conseiller sur les lieux, les parcours et les bonnes adresses à connaître !
