This hidden gem was so very beautiful! The home is very beautiful with great art, big bedroom and a great bathroom! The best thing about our stay was the people ! Natalia is such a sweetheart, completely welcoming and so very helpful! She provided great information about how to do things in Rio, lots of maps and guides as well. The view from this place is so amazing. Natalia and Roberto, thank you for treating us like your friends and your warm hospitality will always be remembered. Thank you so much!

A very nice and quirky house in Santa Teresa. Natalia was a lot of help with tourist information about the area. Very close to a bus stop that takes you to the heart of Santa Teresa (10 min bus ride/30 min walk) or the Metro station. The house itself has very nice views of Christ the Redeemer. I was a bit surprised at the distance from main parts of Santa Teresa, but I should have done my homework. Everyone at the house is super nice. Surprisingly, we ran into Paulo again on our flight back to the US. :)

At the risk of over-doing it, I couldn't have felt more at home here with Paulo and Nathalia. They have been so kind and caring, and the atmosphere of this house feels like my home away from home. The various holiday mishaps [missed flights/stolen wallets and keys] were dealt with efficiently, and Nathalia's calmness made those horrid things feel ok. Our balcony had the most amazing views. Santa Teresa is beautiful and bohemian [safe too]. I couldn't have asked for a better introduction to Rio. What a pleasure to stay here! [Honourable mention to Paulo's sublime breakfast eggs...]

My family and I had a very pleasant stay at Paulo's house. The host Paulo (who is also a talented bag designer) was very welcoming. We loved the location and the cleanness of the house. Paulo's neighbor was super sweet to us as well. This place truly is a hidden gem!

We loved staying at Adam and Paolo's B&B. Breakfast each day was fantastic, and the bus stop is just around the corner for getting around Rio on public transit. Santa Theresa is super cute and perfectly safe, and we enjoyed strolling down the main drag - too bad the streetcar was still under construction!

Our host made us feel at home upon our arrival. It was a very pleasant experience and a wonderful respite after traveling halfway around the globe to visit Brazil. The neighborhood that the property is located on is quite diverse with multimillion dollar properties, artist enclaves, small restaurants and brightly colored graffiti walls lining the street. The location is situated above Santa Teresa with amazing views of the Rio cityscape.

Paulo and Adam made us feel very welcome in Rio...we absolutely loved our stay! Adam gave us invaluable tips for traveling around the city and breakfast with Paulo was a wonderful start to each day. The location was also perfect for us - easy to get around using bus/metro and steps away from the beautiful Tijuca Forest. We didn't want to leave! Thanks again, Adam and Paulo!! Hope to be back in Brazil soon :)
