In a house in Flamengo neighbourhood a beautiful modern Room with Private Bathroom in the "Quadra da Praia", the block of the beach. Very quiet and safe. Metro at 1 min walk. Best place for visiting most of Rio's neighbourhoods. Close to everything.

The space

It is a comfortable room with plenty of space for storage and a small kitchen in it with microwave, sink, fridge, and cooker. The bed is orthopedic with those great NASA pillows. The toilet is for your private use. Basically you'll be staying in a 25 sq meters, that is the first floor of the house. There are two more floors that are my personal ones. The ground floor is a living room.

We had an excellent stay in Glauco's place. We had our own floor,with bedroom + bathroom, and we had access to the kitchen in the last floor. The house is located in Flamengo, a great place to visit Rio (you can go to most places walking). Glauco spent time with us when we arrived explaining the must dos, giving tips, etc. It was great and useful. We also had a lot of time alone in the house since Glauco is not always in Rio. Overall, great experience that I would recommend

Catete was very similar to Flamengo ...plenty of shops and restaurants in walking distance. Glauco's place is fairly short walking distance to 2 Metro Stations so getting around the city is easy. It's a 15 min ride to Copa. Also, you are walking distance (next to one of the Metro Stations) where you can book and catch a van to take you up to the Christ the Redeemer Statue. Glauco my insist you try walking :-) (which it turns out he was right, many people do it and it's safe. It's a time commitment however) Glauco was very friendly and eager to give advice. He recommended a local restaurant where we had dinner and talked. It's a lively, interesting neighborhood and my stay was very positive. Thanks my friend!

Glauco's home is a very unique and cool place. Glauco himself is awesome. Even more unique and cooler than his home.. which is hard to be.

Amazing apartment and very gracious host! Glauco welcomed us when we arrived and gave us a tour of the area and took us to a place with the best acai bowl and a delicious Brazilian crab delicacy. The place was very modern and clean and I love the rooftop deck!

Superb experience on every level - safe, comfortable, convenient, stylish, welcoming, luxurious... I could list so many things: first of all Glauco was an impeccable host, ensuring I had everything I needed and offering local advice when I needed it. We quickly became friends, but he also gave me space to do all I needed in the city. The house is spacious, immaculately designed with lots of storage, super comfortable mattress. It is located 5 mins walk from catete metro, so access to centro or the beaches is easy. Flamengo bay is right there with the park. Most importantly, it's a safe area and the house is secured within a gated development. And let's not forget the five star spa treatment - my stay coincided with a visit from glauco's sports masseur, an unexpected bonus! In summary: a generous and welcoming host with a fantastic pad. Go stay there.

The apartment is absolutely stunning and is located in a safe and friendly walkable area of Rio. Glauco is happy to share all his favorite places around the city with you and he definitely has good taste. We really enjoyed our stay! Thank you Glauco!

Great guy, fabulous apartment, vibrant neighborhood. Even my visiting Brazilian friend thought the place was a hidden treasure. It was a shame I didn't have time to take up all of Glauco's recommendations but I really enjoyed our chats and the little I was able to explore of the neighborhood.

I'm 40 yrs old, fluent in English, Portuguese and Italian. My nationality is Italian, but it's 4 yrs I live in Brazil, where my job is. I spend part of my time in my house and part in my girlfriend's one, so I won't be always at home. I'm pretty friendly and well taught, and I travelled a lot all over the world. I like good manners and respect, the same that I give to the others.
