The Space

I rent one room for travelers in the 2 storey house where I live. The house has a kitchen, living room with tv, balcony with a hot network, bedroom with closet, ceiling fan, wi-fi and lovely views of Christ the Redeemer! Quiet street with 24 hour security, commerce, shopping, banks, located between the beaches of Ipanema and Leblon, the Lagoon and the Botanical Garden, all within a maximum 15 minute walk!
The rock is a neighborhood famous for its night life (the famous Low Gávea, 5 minutes walk from my house), and cultural, as the Instituto Moreira Salles, Casa da Gávea, the Planetarium, the Planetarium Theatre, the Park city​​, the Jockey Club and Shopping Gavea with its shops, restaurants, theaters and cinemas. We have two hospitals, a Fire Department. It has a little of everything. Excellent neighborhood!
Transportation hearty, buses to various parts of the city, taxis, bicycles. I have vague in my garage. If a family with more than 3 people need an extra qt, I can indulge my other qt, q ñ announcement, with accommodation for 3 people. Note: Breakfast few as those who come to spend 2 nights.
I am a person who loves cheerful and friendly welcome guests and help them know and enjoy this lovely city!

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • En mi opinión, Gávea es uno de los mejores lugares para quedarse en Río una temporadita: es tranquilo y residencial pero siempre hay gente en las calles, con tiendas, restaurantes de todo tipo, y está a un paso de la playa de Leblón e Ipanema, que son más turísticas y a veces ruidosas. Es el punto de partida de los autobuses con aire acondicionado que van a las playas y a Botafogo. Y la casa de Ana Silvia está muy bien, está en una zona cerrada al tránsito muy segura y silenciosa pero a un minuto a pie del centro de Gávea y de todo. La casa es enorme, muy amplia en todo, las habitaciones, el baño, la cocina, el salón y hasta el jardín. La anfitriona es una señora muy entrañable siempre dispuesta a ayudar y a contarte historias sobre Río si le preguntas. Aconsejo totalmente quedarse en su casa.

  • Ótima a experiência que tivemos. A casa é muito bem localizada, muito próxima ao shopping da Gávea. O quarto é bem aconchegante e a anfitriã muito simpática.

  • Silvia was very helpful during my stay in Rio and the room was perfect for me with a lot of space and a fan in the ceiling.
    The location was great as well!
    Silvia gave me good advice, helped we with my suitcases, lend me a bag for the beach, made me try local fruit and even drove me to the bus station when I was leaving.
    Her brother was also very kind and I would recommend anyone to stay with Silvia in Rio.

    Muito obrigada por tudo Silvia e manda beijos para seu irmão :)

  • My time in Rio was greatly enhanced by my stay with Silvia. She made me feel at home, made me laugh and gave me tons of practical advice for my stay. I had some problems related to the reason for my visit and she went above and beyond expectations to help me get everything straightened out and fixed up. Thank you so very much!

    We even had a chance to go shopping at the famous "Hippie Market" together (don't miss it!!!) and that experience will always be one of the highlights of my trip.

    All the best Silvia, now and forever!

  • A Estadia na casa da Silvinha foi tranquila. Ela é uma anfitriã atenta e prestativa. O quarto é espaçoso, tem uma boa área de armário e tem uma vista verde e bonita que dá para o Cristo. A casa é grande e organizada e com variados cantinhos onde você pode ler e meditar sossegadamente.

  • Silvia is a great host. Her house is exactly as advertised. The location is great: near Leblon (around 10 min by foot), Ipanema and Lapa (around 20 min by bus, depending on traffic and bus number). The place is safe, away from the main traffic and quiet.
    The house is old but it is tidy and clean with beautiful pieces of art all around the place.
    There is ceiling fan in every big room to manage with the heat. The bathroom is shared, but clean and in lovely blue colors. Also I really enjoyed resting in the hammock on the first floor.
    We used one lovely room with a view of Crist in the distance, a comfortable bed and large wardrobe where we could put all our belongings.
    Silvia is great. She is very kind and friendly. She helped us a lot with the planning of things to do in Rio. She told us which buses we could use so we saved money by not taking taxis.
    She suggested cheaper shops and a sunday market for souvenirs. She also introduced us to some typical Brazilian food. Besides, during the carnaval she told us a lot about
    the history of samba and the samba schools, about the plots of the samba show of every school. Silvia has traveled a lot and has great knowledge in history, art and many other areas.
    We could speak with her freely on various topics. She is great piano player. Asen and I really enjoyed her company.
    On the whole, Silvia was so nice that we felt like staying with family.
    I strongly recommend this host to the people who want to feel the athmosphere of a calm Brazilian home.
    Thank you Silvia for the nice vacation:))))))
    And thank you Airbnb for the chance to stay with such a lovely host.

  • Good location, in an elegant street and suburb. the hostess was friendly, however the room was minimal, with little furniture and an old box bed, sub width and worn out mattress. The bathroom was shared, OK, but with her toiletries and other things lying about, and not very inspiring fixtures.
    We got no breakfast although the website clearly indicates that for 2 day stays upwards, breakfast is included. In fact after the first meeting, we never saw Silvinhia again, We let ourselves out.
    Moreover she has a phone number on the website that is not hers, but her brothers', since November. He hardly ever picks up the phone, so contact was very difficult,
    In case a reader thinks I am a habitual complainer, see my reviews for Sebastian in Olinda and Thiago in Boa Viagem, Recife.

  • We had a great time in Rio. This place has a perfect location, next to the bars, bike stations, bus station, shopping mall and the beach. Silvia gave us nice tips from Rio. We felt the peace in Rio at this place.

  • Tudo legal, o quarto é espaçoso e bem localizado, bem tranquilo e silencioso, apesar de estar perto de tudo.

  • If you go to Rio, do not miss the opportunity to live in the beautiful home of Silvia Maria. His beautiful home, located a short walk to the botanical garden, leans against one of these mountains which make the charm of Rio. The area is very central so you can easily go to Lapa or to the beaches of Ipanema and Copacabana through a short taxi ride or bus. Silvia Mary was a welcoming host and a great guide through Rio.
