Thatiana is a terrific hostess and a wonderful lady, and my stay at her house was a delight. She is upbeat, positive, full of knowledge and enthusiasm for her city, while at the same time keeping a very balanced and objective view of things. A traveler herself, she will give you recommendations that are tailored to your tastes and interests, and you can learn a lot about Rio from talking to her -- she is really smart and speaks her mind. The house is cosy and very charming, and set up in such a way that you can have as much privacy or be as social as you like. It's also very conveniently located, and, in the Rio summer, much cooler than the city streets. I would be very happy to stay at Thatiana's again on my next visit!
It was really interesting to stay in Saude at Thatiana's place.The room was just perfect for me and located near to Pedra do Sal, one of the wonderful carioca's cultural place.
Thatiana is a very warm and kind host with a lot of knowledge of the city. She helped us out with everything and even invited us for a New Year's Day lunch with her family. Furthermore, the location in the city center is good, and from the balcony you have a nice overview of the city. Next time in Rio, I would stay here!
"Thatiana has been the best hostess we could have ever found in our trip to Rio. She opened the doors of her house with warmth and sympathy making us feel at home. Always ready to help us and to recommend us good places to visit. Her house is placed in a beautiful neighbourhood well connected with the rest of the city. There is no doubt that when coming back to Rio we have a great friend there! Thanks, Thatiana."

Thatiana esta una persona muy atentiva y muy amable. Todo el tiempo esta ententado ayudar a las personas que quedan en su casa! Su casa esta muy bien localizada, cerca del centro donde hya mucho que ver y de los tranportes publicos que van a las playas. Es muy seguro tambien! Muchas gracias para mis dos maravillosas semanas en Rio! Isabelle
Foi uma experiencia maravilhosa. É muito dificil expressar em poucas palavras o profissionalismo, a (email hidden), o conhecimento sobre os melhores lugares para ir no rio, etc da (website hidden) compartilho das excelentes opinioes deixadas pelos que estiveram na casa da Thatiana antes de mim. Um exemplo da preocupaçao dela com seus hospedes: Meu vôo atrasou, ela enviou sms para saber o que tinha acontecido que ainda nao tinha chegado ao destino, sem duvida que esse tipo de detalhes, nos deixam gratos e com sentimento de sermos bem acolhidos, e se considerarmos que a pessoa nunca nos viu na (email hidden) é sem duvida reconfortante!.
O lugar é prefeito, tranquilo, perto de tudo, com uma vista maravilhosa e um custo-beneficio excelente. A companhia e dicas da anfitriã nao tem preço. Voltando no rio, vou querer ficar de novo aqui.
Our stay at Thatiana' house was an extremely nice experience.
Thatiana is one of the sweetest hosts ever, she took the time to share her insider views on rio spots, her brazilian touch, and told us all that we needed to know about the city, always ready to stop whatever she was doing to help us with something.
Her house is completely clean, and well taken care of, you feel like home when you stay at Thatiana's.
In hopes of staying again, cheers!
Thatiana was the first host who responded to me with lots of suggestions, recommendations and helpful tips as I had a very short notice to visit Rio de Janeiro. She was my second host since I began hosting in September 2012.
Thatiana was attentive, friendly, helpful, beautiful, kind, communicative, respectful, responsive and caring. Her home is very beautiful on top of the hill and has the view of Christo on the back balcony. Be home before 6 pm to listen to Ava Maria music from the Church.
I was glad to stay at Thatiana´s beautiful place because I get to live on top of the hill, experienced a lifestyle of the steep and winding stairs, the views of the city at the back patio and the water view on the front, samba music nights and the unique way of life. Her check-in sheet is very organized and informative. Make sure you read them before you arrive!! Just listen to her!! :)
She helped me with getting a bus ticket to Ilha Grande, how to take the ferry, booked a taxi, ordered dinner to be delivered to the house, booked the hostel on this island and an itinerary of places to visit. Thatiana is a world traveler and she had been to awesome places and knows how to host guests to ensure their comfort, safety, itinerary and things to do while in Rio in particular and Brasil as well. She also took her time to show me and other guests places!
I would recommend her place to guests who seeks to find adventure, interesting places to see in the vicinity, sharing travel stories and the beautiful person for who she is. Her place is beautifully decorated with items from all her visits around the world, very clean, neat, tidy, and comfortable room with nice amenities and the only house with a garden in the front.
When I am back in Rio, I will definitely stay with her again and of course we will remain friends!! She went beyond the great touch of a host baking a cake, gifts and birthday card for my birthday.
I stayed with Thatiana for one week while I took a language course. Her place isn't near where my school is by Copacabana beach but there's plenty of buses and the Metro to get you around. I found that I saw lots more taking buses everywhere. In my case I hadn't planned to do anything touristy beyond going to the language class but Thatiana gave me great suggestions and I actually saw quite a bit during my stay there. She also was great about emailing me back and answering all my questions via email before I even got there. Her house looks just like the pictures and its also on a hill. You have a distant view of the Christ statue from her back balcony. Her place was more than adequate for my needs and Thatiana herself is just wonderful! She's helpful, informative, hospitable and also well travelled. I plan to stay with her again on a future visit.
Ich habe mich in Thatians Haus wie Zuhause gefühlt, es ist sehr gemütlich und sauber. Thatiana hat mir täglich tolle Tipps gegeben was ich in Rio so unternehmen kann und mir auch alle Wegbeschreibungen genau aufgeschrieben. War eine grosse Hilfe da ich zum ersten Mal in Brasilien war und zudem als Frau alleingereist bin. Öfters hat Thatiana auch mit allen Gästen des Hauses was unternommen, also Tanzveranstaltungen besucht, was mich besonders gefreut hatte. Danke auch an Kitty, RJ und Dina für diese tollen Abende, werd Euch nicht vergessen, Erwähnen möchte ich auch noch die süssen Hunde von Thatiana die ganz lieb waren. Ich kann Thatians Haus also allen empfehlen die eine tolle und relaxte Zeit in Rio de Janeiro verbringen wollen.
