About this listing
Welcome to our charming, loving historic home in one of the best neighborhoods in Rio.
I'm sure that you will love your stay in town, everyone does.
But why stay in an apartment in Copacabana as a normal tourist when you can enjoy the true carioca way of life in our lovely house.
Rany and I searched months and months to find something so special and rare. We, a franco-brazilian couple, just finished restoring a typical carioca house built in 1927. Today, we would love to share it with new friends from around the World.
The house has just been restored and offers all the commodities you need, two bedrooms, one with a kingsize bed, one with a pull out sofa. One nice living room with sofa, TV, sound system. One dining room with a big wood bar table, ready to make capirinhas.
All bedrooms and the living room have air conditioning and high speed wifi.

The guest room, plus all house spaces less our room.
Interaction with Guests
We will be present in the house so interaction depends of how much you want to interact :)
The house is located in Humaitá/ Botafogo, in the Zona Sul, one of most preserved neighborhoods in Rio. A few meters of the house you have the best Argentinian restaurant in town, Tragga, a good lounge bar, Mesa, and Cobal, a unique place which offers during the day an opened market (fruit, fish, flowers, wines) and during the night, restaurants, bars and nightclubs.
The house is:
- 5 minutes walking to the Lagoa, where you can have a run, cycling or skate.
- 5 minutes by cab to the famous Copacabana and Ipanema Beaches
- close to Jardim Botânico where we recommend the Parc Lage.
- 10 minutes by cab to chic Leblon
- 6 metro stations to the Centro and Santa Teressa, the oldest parts of Rio.
Smoking: Do not smoke inside the house, but you can smoke in the patio.
Dishes: Put the dishes near the big tree in front of the main entrance.
Doors: Close the main door with the lock after 8 pm.
Equipments: And just be respectful of furnitures and decorations.
Have a nice stay!
We had a really great stay at Luics place. The apartment was as descriped and very clean.
Luic was a great host and helped us out with everything we needed.
The apartment is located in a really nice area. There are lots of restaurants and Cafés around.
I can really recommend that place!
Merci à david pour son accueil et ses petits conseils bien pratique qui nous ont permis de profiter au mieux de ce séjour à Rio
Everything was great! David was very helpful and hospitable. He also sent us a map with some places where we can go including restaurant with very good brazilian picanha :). The house is well located in very safe district. We can totally recommend the host :)
Sympathique maison, emplacement idéal pour des balades dans Rio et découvrir la vie des cariocas, loin des clichés touristiques! David nous a accueilli très gentillement et nous a donné des bonnes adresses du quartier. On recommande vivement cet endroit!!
I was worried about my first visit to Rio but staying here put me at rest. I didn't meet david but he responded quickly to emails, gave advice about how to get to the flat and arranged for his neighbour to let me in. The area is great, lovely market close by and easy to get buses to anywhere you would want to visit.
The flat is small but it does have everything you will need. Thank you david for letting me stay. I didn't spend long in the flat as I wanted to see Rio but there is net flicks on the TV if you want it.
This was the perfect place to stay for my first time in Rio! The location was near a metro station, grocery store, restaurants and you got a great sense of a "local" neighbourhood - if you want to avoid touristy vibes, that is.
The place was awesome. Minimal, but artfully decorated. To be honest I was hardly in the apartment to enjoy it amenities, but the room itself was comfortable. Clean, tidy and equipped with everything you need. David was really helpful with knowing the area, and assisting me with certain tour/event planning etc. Definitely the place to stay in Rio!
Good place, nice encounter ! I would definitively recommend this nice carioca house, away from the touristical area. It ticks all the boxes, bedroom is quiet, house clean, good wifi signal.
David is nice, easy going, well travelled, nice talks and info to share !
