About this listing
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.
I stayed for six days at Ana's home and I have had a great time. Ana really made me feel welcome in her house. Her breakfast is absolutely great and she learned me how to make tapioca's. So delicious. As well her family is even as nice and helpfull as Ana is. The house is authentic and really up in the hills, close to Corcovado. If you want to find a pieceful spot in a crowded city like Rio you should definitely go to Ana's place. I can absolutely recommend this place to everyone!
We had a really good time at Ana's place. She has a lovely house with a beautiful garden. Ana made us feel at home and had lots of advice for enjoying Rio. The breakfast is very tasty, as she makes bread herself.
The house is situated on the hill. The neighbourhood is ok, with pretty views of the city. It is a bit far to walk to Lapa or the metro station, so you should take a bus to get there (bus stops right in front of the house).
I would for sure recommend this place.
Ana era muito legal, uma anfitrião muito acolhedor! Era muito legal ficar na casa de ela com a família. Ela era muito ajudável em dar direções para nós, dar recomendações na Santa Teresa, e faz pão MUITO gostoso! Eu recomenda a Ana a qualquer pessoa.
Ana immediately made us feel like part of the family and was very helpful in making us acquainted with buses and the metro. She is very knowledgeable about Rio and was wonderful in helping us decide what to do. The descriptions of her house are accurate and it is a wonderful retreat in a huge and sometimes chaotic city. We enjoyed Santa Theresa since it has a quaintness that doesn't exist in the beach neighborhoods or in the centro. However it does mean that you have to rely on buses and their somewhat crazy drivers to get to many of the attractions . Breakfast here is fantastic.
Ana was a lovely host- so warm and friendly. She made us an excellent breakfast each day and was happy to meet my difficult dietary needs! The room was comfortable and pretty, with a great view of Rio. Thanks Ana!
Una maravillosa experiencia! Ana es muy servicial y atenta. La ubicación es perfecta si se quiere vivir una experiencia distinta. La naturaleza rodea la casa y la vista Cristo redentor es increíble. El área es muy segura, existente varios medios de transportes para llegar al centro. Lo mejor fueron los desayunos! Fantásticos! Ana es una excelente pastelera y en la mañana puedes degustar los mejores sabores de Brasil, jugos, frutas, el mejor café y unas excelentes delicias de la pastelería. El cuarto es muy cómodo y limpio.Volvería con gusto! Una experiencia única! Gracias Ana!
Ana was wonderful! In addition to making us feel very welcome, she made us breakfast in the morning with some of her amazing bread. Air conditioning in the room was a plus. A few notes for people visiting: the bathroom is shared with the rest of the family--that wasn't a problem for me at all and was all part of the experience, but I know some people prefer their own. The house is located in an uphill, residential area of Santa Teresa that is a 20+ minute walk away from the touristy parts of the neighborhood lower down, although it's very easy to get to those parts by bus, taxi or on foot. Since the walk is downhill from Ana's, I recommend taking the bus or a taxi back up to her place.
