Welcome to our charming, loving historic home in one of the best neighborhoods in Rio.

The Space

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 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.

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.

  • Bonjour à tous,

    Nous avons passé 10 jours (du 02 au 13 avril 2014) dans cette superbe maison au décor moderne et dans une chaleur et une hospitalité franco-brésilienne!

    Je vous recommande vivement cette belle petite maison nichée dans un quartier sympa animé et calme de Botafogo.
    Au pied de la maison, vous trouverez pas mal de restaurants, bars, supermarchés et stations de bus.

    Marcher quelques mètres en sortant de la maison, et vous verrez le CORCOVADO :)

    David & Rany les chefs des lieux vous accueilleront avec le sourire, et vous ouvriront les portes pour un voyages fabuleux!
    La maison est très bien équipée et surtout très propre.

    Je vous recommande fortement cette belle maison, vous ne serez pas déçus!!!!

    Bon voyage!

  • I moved to Rio de Janeiro from the USA and spent the first few weeks with David as I looked for an apartment and became acquainted with the city.From the moment I arrived, David went out of his way to be hospitable and helpful not only to me, but also the other guests whose stays coincided with mine. David keeps the apartment very clean and organized with an excellent wifi signal.The surrounding area always felt very secure and there are plenty of nice restaurants in this neighborhood of Humaitá, all within 5 minutes walking.

  • David was immediatly friendly with us and he took time to explain to us what were the best things to do to discover Rio in less than 3 days.
    Botafogo is extremly well situated (in the middle of the Centre and the beaches of Copacabana and Ipanema) and their apartment is close to good restaurants, bars and quality food stores. Ask David !

  • We spend one week in David's and Rany's place. I can only recommend to stay there. The location ist perfect, to explore all parts of the city. The Neighbourhood is very nice and safe. They have a beautiful house. Our room was in the first floor. Everything was very clean. David and Rany are the perfect host. They are very kind and communicative. They have helped us and gave us some good advices. We spend some nights with them in the Apartement and they have even cooked for us and mixed some great Caipirinhas. It was very nice to meet them. We hope to meet them again.

  • We loved our stay at David's and Rany's House. After two nights in an awful hostel at Copacobana we found refuge in there lovely modern house. David and Rany are very heartful and communicative. Their house is very clean and well furnished. Because of it's very central position in Botafoga you can reach every spot of the city within minutes.
    They gave us great advice and even let us store our luggage till 8pm on check out day.
    We absolutely recommend David and Rany and hope to host them at our place one day.
    Thanks for the caipis as well :)

  • David & Rany are a very friendly couple. It was great talking with them and spent some time together. I particularly want to thank them for being so responsive and accepted me with short notice due to surprises along my travel plans.

    Their place is in Botafogo near a food market (and restaurants) with a really good supermarket. All within walking distance. It is easy to catch bus going to metro to centro or other way to Leblon.

    I'd describe the whole 2-floor cozy townhouse flat as charming with flair of vibrant color/decor. The bedrooms are upstairs. Although the room itself is not big, it is situated within the plan, which I don't remember hearing much noise at all. There's also a desk inside the room.

    Overall I feel it's a good location and safe neighborhood. It's easy to get around. They are easy to talk to and readily available when I had question.
