We are located in Laranjeiras, a neighbourhood in the south zone (Zona Sul) of Rio de Janeiro. Next most of the beaches and nightlife of the city.
We are not located on the main street, however we are very close to it, where there are many bars, restaurants, transportation, etc.
We are very close to the Cristo Redentor (Corcovado) and to the Sugar Loaf (Pão de Açúcar) and also very close to the Aterro do Flamengo, where on Sundays you can go out for a walk or for a jog freely.
We are a couple of minutes away from the Casa Rosa, which is a cultural house, with guitar lessons and at night on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays turns into a great place to go out and have fun. Sunday afternoon they always prepare a special "feijoada" to go along with the great group of Samba musicians.
Santa Teresa, a very traditional and cultural neighbourhood of Rio de Janeiro, is also a few minutes away and this is where you can find several artists such as painters, sculptors and local crafts.
Lapa, the main point of bars and clubs, is about 20 minutes from the house (by bus) and is one of the great tourist points to be visited.
We consider ourselves to be pleasant and friendly hosts and we look forward to welcoming you in our house.
We have both shared or private rooms, which can be ideal for groups or for a lonely traveller or for a couple.
We also offer free wireless internet.
Come stay with us and experience Rio with all the joy we Brazilians have to offer.

Maria is a person who help me to move in rio, the house is a very freindly place, in a quiet neighborhood.
Maria is the best! She was a second mother to me. She helped me with everything I needed. And she sat and talked with me for a long time. She helped me with taxis and buses. Her son even helped me out. So nice. So wonderful. Would highly recommend.
Maria is a great host. She gave me insightful information about Rio whenever required and even offered to take me around to some of the more famous tourist spots in Rio.
The place is in a safe neighborhood and away from noisy touristy areas.
Highly recommended if you are looking for a quiet spot away from typical destinations.
The house is nice and clean. The guest beds are upstairs in the attic and offer a quiet place to relax. Maria and Izabela no longer live at the house but their brother/son is a good host and helped us when needed.

Mother and daugther, both joyful and welcoming. We have lived in Rio de Janeiro most of our life and visited many places, together and separatelly. Maria has lived in the US for 9 years and Izabela for 2 years. We both love to know different cultures. We live with our 2 other family members (Daniel e Junior - sons and brothers). We also adore sports and music. We have a great time meeting new people and creating a fun environment. We speak English and Spanish. We can't live without our family, they are the most important people on the world to us. We have hosted people at our house before and we loved the experience. Our motto in life is to be happy!!!
Mãe e filha, ambas alegres e acolhedoras. Temos vivido no Rio de Janeiro a maior parte de nossa vida e visitamos muitos lugares, juntas e separadamente. Maria viveu nos EUA por 9 anos e Izabela por 2 anos. Nós duas amamos conhecer diferentes culturas. Vivemos com dois outros membros da nossa família (Daniel e Junior - filhos e irmãos). Nós adoramos esportes e música. Nós também apreciamos conhecer novas pessoas e criar um ambiente divertido. Nós falamos Inglês e Espanhol. Nós não podemos viver sem a nossa família, eles são as pessoas mais importantes do mundo para nós. Nós hospedamos pessoas em nossa casa antes e adoramos a experiência. O nosso lema na vida é ser feliz!
