The Space

This is one of the safest neighborhoods in Rio, Urca is really the most charming and security place. We have a perfect view of the Corcovado, Guanabara Bay and of the city.
Here everything is an excuse for a walk through the quiet streets; the markets, local bars, restaurants and bistros take all 5-10 min away by foot.
Sugar Loaf is 15 min by foot and next have the restaurant and nightclub Zozô.
Should you want to hit the beach or go somewhere more agitated, bus lines take you to the city centre, or anywhere on the zona sul; one bus line takes you directly to the subway.

Room with double bed, private bathroom, air conditioning, spacious wardrobe. Our guests are welcomed with comfort and tranquility.

Bedding clean and of good standard.

A few steps to Sugar Loaf, bus stop in front to south zone, center, lapa, easy access to anywhere you want, bus metro stops in front.
The neighborhood is very quiet where you can make a nice walk and take beautiful pictures, trendy bars to choose, only a few steps.
Well frequented restaurants, markets, drugstores.

We speak English, french and portuguese.

  • Cissa was a wonderful host with a beautiful, safe home in Urca. She welcomed us like family and provided instructions for the bus line and tourist attractions. If you want a great stay in Rio, I highly recommend contacting Cissa. She will give you a home away from home!

  • During our journey in Brazil we stayed in four different places in Rio - Ipanema, Copacabana, Lapa and Urca. Everywhere was great, but Urca is something really special! You MUST try to spend at least few days there. Cissa's house is perfect to stay, really big and tidy, with everything you might need, even access to the roof!) Also she gave us as much privacy as we needed.) Location of the apartment is one of the best in Urca for me, near bus station, supermarkets and bakery and cool bar. In other words, it's really hard to find better place to stay for this money for a couple. Highly recommend. And sorry for my English))

  • This is a great property.
    Located in a safe area with restaurants close by and transport virtually at the front door.
    Very clean and over looking the water added to the relaxing stay at this property.
    Cissa was helpful and looked after us very well.
    I would highly recommend this property to anyone staying in this great city.

  • Cissa was very nice, she lives with her two daughters, they all were very discrete.
    Very clean room and bathroom (with a bath!).
    The neighbourhood is very quiet, however not much restaurants and bars for those who are looking for a nightlife. Really near from the sugar loaf, with many buses leaving from Cissa's house.

  • Great experience! The room looks just like on the picture, the mattress, bed sheets, towels are of great quality.
    The view from the window and the from the roof top is stunning!
    The location is great. Safe, easy to commute. You stay in the heart of the Zona Sul of Rio and it feels safe and quiet.
    You can use the kitchen and overall feel very private, like you are alone in the house.
    The owner is friendly and helpful.
    My experience overall was a big positive surprise and I absolutely recommend this place for other visitors!

  • Nous avons eu un bon accueil. La chambre est sympa, il est possible de discuter en anglais avec elle. La chambre est bien équipée et confortable. On a même eu des petits singes un matin sur l'arbre en face de la fenêtre... !!! :) La vue est belle, et le bus s'arrête juste en face de l'appartement direction direct vers Copacabana, Ipanema, ou station de métro. Petit + avant de faire le check in on a pu laisser nos bagages à l'arrivée chez elle.
