The space

I live in a house located in the historical neighborhood of Santa Teresa, with lots of green around in a very peaceful place. It’s a charming area, with bars and restaurants. Very near to the best spots in the neighborhood (stores, restaurants and bars), only 10 minutes by taxi or 20 minutes walk from Lapa (the most bohemian neighborhood in Rio) you will be staying at a quiet street, in a pleasant house, with a garden to relax.

I had a very nice stay as Vera is a welcoming and helpful host. I just think it is a bit overpriced for what you get but as I learned that is Rio.

Vera is such an amazing person, she has a great vibe and personality. Vera welcomed me into her eccentric home with warmth and friendliness. Vera's home is nestled in a little cobble street in the beautiful and laid back town of santa teresa, for me the best boheim gem of a city …

I must say when I first booked this place I was slightly nervous by the sheer amount of rules that were listed. What ever you do don't let that put you off staying here! Vera is generous and kind. She waited up late for me on the first night when I got lost in Rio, then she even …

Vera was a great host. A nice and very helpful person. The room was as described, although I thougt it was a shared room, but it was a single room. During my stay there was another couple living there at Vera's place. The atmosphere was very family-like. I enjoyed it a lot. The h…

This place is great. Vera is great (she even looked after me when I was sick!). Also, great value for money. If you want to see a more normal side of RJ than the touristy beaches of the South, I'd highly recommend Vera's.

Clean and tidy. Very disagreable hostess who complained over guest spending time in living-room although that was supposed to be a shared space. Location is very far from the centre of Santa Teresa and close to unsafe favela. Also close to Sambodrome where at times low quality …

Response from Vera:
Erling has spent all his time sitting at the living room, drinking, using the internet and trying to tell me about the disaster that was his marriage. Or, worse, complaining about my country and about the house where you were before arrive in my home. He dared to call us barbaros and compare Brazil with Europe, as it is possible. If you like Europe, stay there. We already have enough foreigners coming to Brazil. We don't need someone like you. He's not a nice person, he drinks the whole day and he doesn't mind to be impolite. Dear, you should stay at your country which one is much better than mine. When I complained with him about the time he used to spend at the living room - it was one day I have arrived at home and many of his stuff were spread around - he started screaming with me!!!!! You were renting a room not the whole house. You are the only guest who complained about it. It is a little weird, isn't it? I don't mind to share my house with people that, at least, know how to respect my country and the fact that the house is mine. Just an advise, Santa Teresa is not a place for someone in your age. Next time go to Copacabana, Ipanema or Leblon where you will find a lot of people like you. If your experience at my house wasn't good, having you here was worse and I was counting the time for you leave.

I stayed fot two weeks in Vera's house. It was a great time. Vera is an open minded, relaxed and helpful person who, from the first moment on, made me feel welcome in her house. And the great thing was that she always invited me to go out for a drink with her friends. A great wa…
