Private room with a beautiful view of Christ's Statue in a confortable and cozy house in the charming neighborhood of Santa Teresa, Rio de Janeiro. We have an outside area with a beautiful garden, where you can relax.
The room can be set in 3 ways:
with two single beds or one double bed or
for three people with a double bed plus a single bed or three single beds.
Before booking specify which assembly that will best accommodate you.
Besides, in the house there is a small artisanal bakery (CEREAL), where Ana, the hostess, makes and sells her products. Our breakfast will certainly make the difference in your stay with us.
Santa Teresa is located high on a hill, near Forest of Tijuca. It's a very quiet place and it's historical and cultural heritage of the city of Rio de Janeiro. Therefore, many artists and intelectuals choose it to be their home. From here, you can easily get to many other well-known places as Lapa, Centro, Corcovado station etc by bus or van.
We had a wonderful time in Ana 's house .
Ana family very welome and and the house is really well located in Santa Teresa .
We had wonderful breakfast .
Thanks Ana .
Buena atención¡¡¡¡ Muy recomendable.
Nous avons passé 6 nuits ds la belle demeure de Ana. Il nous a fallu 2 jours pr apprécier l'endroit. Ana est une hôtesse charmante qui donne de bons conseils et qui répond à nos questions.
Les petits déjeuners sont excellents. Ils sont très copieux.
Nous étions contents d'être loin du bruit de la ville.
De Santa Teresa, ns avons des points de vue magnifiques sur Rio.
Il y a beaucoup de bus pour nous emmener en ville, les arrêts sont très près de la maison.
Nice and peaceful central location in Rio. Close to bohemian Santa Teresa (10 min. by bus), Cristo Redentor and Tijuca National Park. Fresh breakfast with everything you need.
Only (minor) issue was the bathroom: since it was used by 4 people in the same weekend (there were other guests as well while we stayed there) it would have been nice if it had been cleaned once a day, especially with the hot weather at the time. The bedroom though is soundproof, was very clean and had an airco and a fan.
Ana and her family are very kind and considerate.
We had a lovely few days at Ana's beautiful house in Rio. Everything was perfect, from the wonderful view of the fireworks on Copacabana beach from our bedroom window to the very tasty breakfast.
Ana was extremely helpful; telling us which buses to catch and how to get to the various sites. We wanted to stay longer but unfortunately other guests were arriving.
Unfortunately, Ana was in the hospital while we stayed in her house, what was probably the reason for the room and the bath/toilet (which we had to share with other guests, by the way) not being entirely clean. The house has definitely seen better days, but has a style and the garden is gorgeous: we could even see the monkeys in the trees! The house is located in Santa Theresa which is known as a bit dodgy area (due to its proximity to the slums), but we have not experienced any problems in this respect. Santa Theresa itself is really beautiful and this is a good location to explore Lapa and Centro (the bus stop is just next to the house), but it's a bit far away for a quick swim in Copacabana or Ipanema. Internet was available and breakfast was good (try the freshly made pineapple-mint juice - yummy!).
I did a short vista to Rio traveling around Brazil, and when I return (cue I really need to stay longer) I'll try and book this place again! Just the view from my window of The Christ - WOW! Ana is a great host and the place is super cosy with a garden surrounding it, a bakery in the basement and a helpful family. Located in St Teresa you get a good idea of Rio de Janeiro. Even with public transport you can get to the different main places pretty quick (although public transport in Brazil is a huge challenge!!). In 15 minutes by bus you'll get to Largo do Machado and from there you can walk to Botafogo, Flamengo etc. Theres a metro there as well for you to go to the beaches. So, I was very happy renting this place. You'll get a bit away from the city center, but at the same time its easy to access. Rio IS amazing and an extraordinary place in the world, worth taking your time to explore. Ana's place is a good base, and the breakfast is world class :-) 8,5/10
Great place to Stay, very good location, in the hills of Santa Theresa with a fantastic view, Safe Area and one of the best Breakfast of Rio. I totally recommand Ana's place.
Ana is a wonderful host - her breakfast with home-baked bread and home-made cereal is a pleasure. We were welcomed as part of the family. Her house and garden is a jewel and I felt safe on the premises. The rooms were nice and clean with a great view onto the city and to Christ redeemer. I recommend walking (almost) all the way up to Christ redeemer from here. WiFi worked fine and she offered her own computer to use. The bus ride from/to other parts of the city takes a while (as is the case everywhere in Rio), with stunning views over some parts of the favelas. I recommend checking bus connections and reading up on beautiful St. Teresa as a neighbourhood in advance.
Si tienes que ir a Río, es el mejor sitio para quedarte. He tenido mucha suerte al quedarme en la casa de Ana. La casa es fantástica, el barrio tranquilo y bonito y comunicada para ir a cualquier sitio, con una parada de autobús casi en la puerta. De mi habitación veía desde la ventana al Cristo Redentor. El desayuno es fantástico y buenísimo y el pan lo hace ella cada día. Increíble. Ana es adorable, simpática y me ha dado una bienvenida maravillosa, me he sentido como en mi propia casa. Una cosa tengo clara, que volvería a casa de Ana si vuelvo a Río y lo aconsejo a todo el mundo
If you have to go to the Río, it is the best place to stay. I have been very lucky to meet Ana's home. The House is fantastic, the neighbourhood quiet and beautiful and communicated to go anywhere, with a bus stop almost at the door. In my room I saw from the window to Cristo Redentor . The breakfast is fantastic and great and the bread she does it every day. Incredible. Ana is adorable, friendly and gave me a wonderful welcome, I felt like in my own home. One thing I have clear, which would return to casa de Ana if I return to Rio and recommend it to everyone
Obrigada Ana, Joao and Maria .
