A Summer Place in Rio.

Apartment - Private room · R. Visc. de Ouro Preto, Rio de Janeiro, Rio de Janeiro 22250-180, Brazil

The Space

The room is spacious, double bed box pattern, space in the wardrobe, bedding and bath, air conditioning, overlooking the green. I make perfumes and I leave the glass lavender to be used when sleeping. Perfumes away the mosquitoes that come from the inner area of the condominium.

The apartment with 125 square meters, is located a few meters of cinemas, bars, subway, bus to anywhere in the city, both small and large super markets. There are taxi ranks and bus stop close by, as well as bakery and pharmacy.

The apartment is 200 meters from Botafogo Metro station, 100 meters to the Botafogo Praia Shopping, Praia de Botafogo, Flamengo Park, Casa de Rui Barbosa, Villa Lobos Museum, Indian Museum, about 1 km to Copacabana 3 km to Ipanema and Leblon, 5 minute taxi ride to Lapa.

I enjoy meeting new people and cultures, have an affinity for people related to art. I made short trips to Brazil when new, now I want to develop the art of receiving. I intend to use more short trips in the Airbnb to train my English. I live with my son for 31 years, he speaks fluent English, French and Spanish, in case you have good communication.

My apartment is based on solar energy!
Who wants to try is only canditar as host.

I'm waiting for you!

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • I spent 6 days in Guacira's place. It is in a very safe area, clean and comfortable. Very close to metro station, three blocks away. Also, there are several supermarkets around the apartment. But there were two mornings, plane flying overhead, a little noisy. The host Guacira is very nice and helpful. I recommend Summer Place in Rio.

    Response from Guacira:

    Thank you again.

  • The flat was very comfortable with all the amenities. It is 2-3 mins walk to the Botafogo metro station and in a good neighborhood. It was very easy to catch taxi's too. The super market is a couple of doors down the road. Guacira and her son Antonio were INCREDIBLE hosts, warm, informative and witty. They made our stay in Rio really enjoyable. We felt at home and would definitely recommend anyone to stay there. If you want a real experience with a lovely Carioca family this is it. In other words these guys are SUPERSTARS and we will dearly miss them and would definitely stay here again when we visit Rio.

    Response from Guacira:

    Thank you for caring these days I spent with you. You guys are now in the list of guests very dear. Kisses

  • 500 words wouldn't be enough to say how wonderful was to stay in Guacira's place! Guacira's room is perfect, quiet, clean, fresh, comfortable and inspiring.
    She is a very good host and helped me a lot! She is very friendly but also know to respect your privacy.
    And the more important for me is that she is an honest and fair person. I had to leave earlier due to some personal issues, so she offered me to use these days that I've already paid later.
    I have rent her room for one month and have absolutely nothing to complain.
    I won a stepmother and a lovely friend!

    Thank you darling. Now you are a new friend. one kiss

  • Guacira and her son Antonio were very warm and welcoming hosts that care deeply for their visitors. They were of great help during our trip, always keen on giving tips when it comes to sightseeing in Rio. It was a real pleasure to stay at their place for a couple of days.

  • We had a great time at Guacira's place. The rooms are clean and very comfi. The area of Botafogo is really laid back with a few good options to go out in the evening. We think it s a good place for a couple who likes it a bit calmer, though beach at copa and party in lapa are only a short bus ride away. Guacira s a very warmhearted and uncomplicated kind. Hope to be back sometime, may be even around x-mas

  • Guacira is a very nice hostess, the room is clean and the view is looking for a beautiful tree outside. It was a pleasure to stay there for a couple of days.

  • Guacira is a great host, very open and friendly. Willing to give advices, talking and louging together. Hope to meet you again, Guacira:)
    The standard of the room and flat is high. Near to the metro station - good connection with other parts of the city.
    Highly reccomended:)

  • We stayed at the house for 4 days. The room is as depicted in the photos. Mrs Xavier lives in the apartment with her son. The location is ideal, because its near the metro. The rest of the apartment is shared with Mrs. Xavier and her son, that means that you will only have privacy in your room. Oh, and don't forget to bring along mosquito spray for your skin, because you will need that at night...

    In general our stay was very good and I do recommend the apartment

    September 2012
  • Guacira and her son Antonio are knowledgeable hosts, and the apartment is in a great central location with transportation very close. The only surprise was that the bathroom shares a half wall (with no glass in the window) to the kitchen, so if privacy if high on your list take note!

    Response from Guacira:

    Thank you Anna for the touch, talk a lot about it with Antonio, he is stubborn, write to the e-mail him, he needs these reviews. Mother does not solve certain hours. Sometimes I need to go to rest exactly those things.

  • It is a great apartment with great hosts! The area is safe, you can go out at night as well. We definitely stay there the next time! Greetings from Austria my friends :)

Gosto de conhecer novas pessoas e culturas, tenho afinidade por pessoas ligadas a arte. Fiz pequenas viagens pelo Brasil quando mais nova, agora quero desenvolver a arte de receber. Pretendo usar mais o Airbnb em pequenas viagens para treinar meu inglês. Moro com meu filho de 30 anos, ele fala fluentemente o inglês, francês e espanhol, caso seja preciso uma melhor comunicação. O apartamento fica perto de cinemas, bares, farmácias, metrô e onibus para qualquer parte da cidade. Tem quarto amplo, silencioso, ar refrigerado, espaço no guarda-roupa, vista para o verde. O apartamento fica a 200 metros da estação do Metrô de Botafogo, 100 metros para o Botafogo Praia Shopping, Praia de Botafogo, Aterro do Flamengo, Casa de Ruy Barbosa, Museu Villa Lobos, Museu do Índio, poucos minutos para Copacabana, Ipanema, Leblon, 5 minutos de táxi para a Lapa. Internet de alta velocidade WiFi, cozinha para refeições rápidas com espaço na geladeira e armário para alimentos. É aconselhável que se faça refeições rápidas, para que outro host possa usar a cozinha. Favor deixar tudo limpo e organizado depois das refeições. Não faça comidas pesadas, que tomam muito tempo. Toalhas de banho e lençóis de cama estão incluídos e trocados a cada cinco dias. O quarto é limpo duas vezes por semana, se voce não trancar a porta do quarto nos dias em que a faxineira vem, ela é de confiança. Roupas devem ser lavadas na máquina, nunca no banheiro. Se for uma família, tenho mais dois quartos. O apartamento é à base de energia solar! Quem quiser experimentar é só se candidatar como host. Estou esperando por você!
