pauline and rodrigo are very friendly and lovely hosts. we had a wonderful time at this apartment and felt totally comfortable.
we would definitely book it again!!!
If you prefer to be in a living area of the city, Pauline's house could be perfect for you. The area is nice, you are next to the metro and can easily walk to many interesting places of the city.
The apartment is nice and has a big bed and two fans. Nonetheless, as it is a old house, you'd better to clean up your food if you don t want to see a ant's line. Once you adapt to that, you will have a great time in Rio.
Pauline and Rodrigo welcomed us so friendly and warmly. They also helped us a lot with our planning and traveling. The apartment is very nice and the central but quiet location is superb! We were really glad experiencing the first days in Rio at their place!
Pauline et rodrigo sont des hôtes très sympathiques, ils connaissent parfaitement rio et vous donnerons de bon tuyaux.
La maison est très bien située, proche des plages et du centre à la fois.

Stayed here for 8 nights in December 2013. I was attending a wedding and loved this location. Non - touristy and very safe. The apartment was clean spacious and quiet. It had shutters so at night it was very dark (hate bright hotel rooms at night) and I slept really well. The bed was very comfortable (extra firm) which is what I like. The hosts Pauline and Rodrigo were really friendly and helpful. Easy access to Metro and bus service. Walking distance to Lapa Would stay here again.
My experience was great from an accommodating and friendly reception to the apartment being just as it appears in the photos. It's a great location on top of the hill in Gloria/Catete near Flamengo Beach away from the noise, but very central and it's a LARGE apartment. You will get in shape walking up and down the hill and I wouldn't advise it for those who don't enjoy that, however, there is the option of motobike or taxi from the street, which is inexpensive. Private, peaceful and beautiful location.
A minha experiência foi ótimo desde a recepção acomodatício e simpático ate que o apartamento parece como esta nas fotos. O lugar é bom e localizado encima do morro na Glória / Catete e perto da praia do Flamengo fora do barulho lá em baixo. Fica perto de tudo na área e o apartamento e GRANDE. Vai ficar em boa forma subindo e descendo o morro e não recomendo pra quem não gosta disso..mas tem opções de moto e taxi também que são barato. Privado, tranquilo e lindo local.
We had a lovely time staying at Pauline and Rodrigo's place. It is a very nice space, really clean and well thought out. The kitchen living space is great. In fact its all great. I wouldn't find fault with any of it! Pauline and Rodrigo were very friendly and welcoming, taking time to tell us about the area and giving us recommendations on good cafes and restaurants.
The neighbourhood is very quiet and yet very central, with fantastic views of the city and of the Christ statue. I would thoroughly recommend this place.
Accueil chaleureux, appartement bien placé agréable et superbe vue sur le corcovado!
Pauline and Rodrigo were amazing hosts. They took us in with very short notice (which was super helpful for us) and they are really nice. They gave us helpful tips about the city, places to eat, listen to music, etc and gave us good advice about other places in Brazil as well. The apartment was great, very clean, spacious and located in a beautiful area in Rio (and also close to everything). We certainly plan to come back.
We changed to Pauline's and Rodrigo's place from a noisy neighbourhood and were relieved to find a quiet environment in such a central location in Rio.
We didn't have the chance to meet Rodrigo, but Pauline is a very helpful, trustworthy and attentive host. We could even leave our suitcases with her while going on a short trip from Rio for a couple of days.
It's a popular neighbourhood and the walk uphill is indeed steep - but at least it improves your leg muscles. Bear in mind that at night it is rather difficult to catch a taxi from the house unless you have the means to call one - which can be a point if you plan to go to a lot of Samba or Choro venues and don't want to walk down the hill every time.
Overall a great option for (quite) little money!
