It´s close to Santa Teresa, you can go walking from my street.
On saturday, it is a wonderful show in a open market in a cozy square: "Choro na feira" 5 min. walking an you´ll enjoy a tipical cariocas´ life.
I´m spanish, but I´m living in Rio for 23 years, so I feel "carioca". I´m a spanish teacher. I am friendly, tolerant, and very respectful of your privacy and welcome guests who are the same.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • We had a great time staying with Asuncion - she was very helpful in providing us with local information on activities, great breakfast and conversation. Cute and very well decorated clean apartment.

  • Everything positive which you read in previous feedbacks about Asuncion place is....true!
    The flat is cosy and clean and every small detail is made with love and imagination. The location is very convenient - quite in a distance from crazy beaches, but easily reachable by bus (bus station is 5 min by walk) or metro (20 min by walk).

    But the best thing at Asuncion's place is Asuncion herself. Amazing host, welcoming, making you feel like at home and interesing personality which whom it is interesting to talk. Really we became friends and will miss her a lot.

    Stay there and you feel in love with the place and its host!

  • Asuncions place was great, very clean and nicely decorated. She was a very attentive host. She helped us out with anything we needed and we felt more like friends than guests. The fresh breakfast every morning was an added bonus! If we ever come back to Rio, Asuncions apartment would be our top choice to stay.

  • Asuncion was really adorable !! We felt as if we were with family :) She explained us very well the best places to see in Rio etc.
    It was a really good starting point for our first trip to Brazil.

    The room (and apartment) was beautiful and peaceful.
    The breakfast was very good, you don't need anything else.
    The location is ideal regarding the public transport.
    We highly recommend her!
    Gracias Asuncion !

  • Asuncion is great! We stayed at her place for just three days, but we felt right at home with her. Her place is just as seen in the pictures and the room is beautiful and spacious. It is located at only a 10 minute walk to Corcovado. She was an amazing host, took the time to leave us breakfast ready every morning and she was so helpful in guiding us through the city. Highly recommended!

  • Asuncion was an incredible host!! Already before we arrived she was very helpful in answering all our questions as it was our first trip to Rio. The apartment is located in a nice neighbourhood and we felt safe and secure at all times! It is a beautiful and quite place and still close to the main attractions. Although Rio is a confusing city you really dont need to worry if you stay at Asuncions place. It is really super safe and she has lots of tips for you on where to go and what to do.
    Every morning we got an incredible breakfast with fresh fruits!!! We just loved it!
    She has an amazing sense of hospitality making you feel as if you stay with a friend from the first day.
    It was an extremely nice stay and we highly recommend staying here!!!

  • I could not have found a better place to stay.

    Asuncion is a wonderful host, always ready to help and cheerful. By the end of my stay she had become a firm friend.

    I was in Rio to do some voluntary work at a Community school in Copacabana. Asuncion also got interested in voluntary work and came with me to the school several times to help there.

    Asuncion`s apartment is ideally located for public transport to all parts of the city, with bus stops just a two minute walk away. The apartment is very clean, comfortable, and quiet. There are plenty of restaurants, bars and super markets all very near.

    I would thoroughly recommend a stay at Asuncion`s apartment.
