The Space

Our place is a very quiet apartment part of our house but completely independent. Its on a nice hill, our street is a little bit of countryside in the city! And its 10mn walk from metro Catete and Gloria ant the aterro of Flamengo!

It has just been reformed and it is FRESH NEW! Lots of colours and nice and confy furniture for the best stay in Rio!

There is one bed room ( quiet big- about 15m2) with a double bed a closet and a table, then a bathroom with a shower and a living room with a kitchen where the sofa can be transformed in a very big double bed! the kitchen will be fully equiped!
Moreover you have a nice exterior area when you can rest in a hamac!

You have all the shops you want 10mn walk from the apartment close to the metros- restaurants, pharmacies, etc.
What makes our place unique is the silence! you can listen to the birds singing in the morning! and its very central : 15mn walking you are in Lapa or the center, 10mn you are in the aterro do flamengo, 30 walking+metro or bus) your are in Copacabana or Ipanema!
We are sure you will enjoy! any question just write us!

  • Un logement très agréable, tant au niveau de l’accueil que de la localisation.
    Tellement bien que nous avons offert un WE dans cet appartement à nos hôtes de Sao Paulo.
    Merci Pauline & Rodrigo

  • Rodrigo and Pauline were exceptional hosts, helping us find our way around and providing us with everything we needed. The place is exactly as it looks in the pictures and is located in a very charming area. As 2 couples it was enough space and we would highly recommend staying here in Gloria. It was close to downtown and the metro was about 8 minutes away. Since we were 4 of us we found taxi's the cheapest option to get around which was very easy.

    Thank you for sharing your place with us!

  • Rodrigo and Pauline's apartment was quite the delight! It was exactly as portrayed in the listing, and in a lovely neighborhood close to the action of Rio but also away from the craziness. It was the perfect size for the 4 of us traveling together. We were welcomed by the both of them and their beautiful baby Lia. Pauline prepared a homemade loaf of bread that was still warm upon our arrival. Our flight had been delayed nearly 14 hours and the airline lost all 4 of our bags. Rodrigo offered to take us shopping at 22:00 for clothing! We always felt safe and cared about. Do yourself a favor and stay in their lovely casita while enjoying the adventure Rio has to offer! ThAnk you Rodrigo and Pauline for all of your care, kindness, and help. We wish you both the best and hope you know you have somewhere to stay if ever in Los Angeles!

  • Absolutely fantastic weekend in Rio in Pauline and Rodrigo's house :-)

    I stayed here with two friends: a Canadian/American and a girl from the Czech Republic and all three of us loved this apartment. It's got an incredible view of the Corcovado, it's a perfect size for three people and has a wonderful courtyard for breakfasts! I was so sad to leave it! Rodrigo was fantastic when we arrived and gave us so many tips on where to eat etc. He even brought my friend up to the organic market when she was out in the courtyard doing yoga one morning. The baby was sick that weekend so we only got to meet Pauline on the night we were leaving but she was so warm and welcoming! I was sad that we didn't get to chat some more. I am so excited to go back to Rio to stay there again and will recommend it to anybody going to the Cidade Maravilhosa.

    Obrigada por tudo e muitos beijos aos tres. Vamos voltar logo! Um abraço desde Irlanda

  • Pauline and Rodrigo's place was really a great find. It sits above the city so you feel like you're away from the hustle of Rio yet just a short walk to Rua Catete where you have the metro, restaurants, and supermarkets. It is a bit of a climb to their place so if you're not comfortable walking uphill for about 10 minutes then I'd look elsewhere but I found the walk to be part of the charm and got used to it pretty quickly. The apartment itself was clean and very comfortable, we had a full kitchen at our disposal and the bedroom was very large and the bed firm and comfortable. The pullout couch works well for one person. Pauline and Rodrigo made sure we were well taken care of. I would definitely come back next time I'm in Rio.

  • We stayed a couple of days in Paulines and Rodrigos apartment and it was perfect for us. It is newly renovated in an old charming house. The apartment is very clean, well equipped, nicely furnished, WiFi works well, the water is always hot, the bed is comfortable. Also there is a little yard in front of the apartment, where you can sit outside.
    The location is really good. The apartment is really close to everything, but very quiet. It is ten minutes by walk to the metro. Around the metro you find everything for your daily life. And it is only fifteen minutes by walk to Flamengo beach, from where you have a great view on Sugar Loaf.
    We always felt safe in this area of Gloria.
    Pauline is a very nice person and very helpful. Thank you Pauline and Rodrigo. We had a great stay in Rio de Janeiro and we can highly recommend your apartment.

  • The apartment was just perfect! Exactly how it was described, perfectly located in a wonderful neighbourhood, safe and really quiet. Amazing.
    You can easily reach the metro or bus stations as well as the supermarkets and other stores.

    The furnishing of the apartment was simple but in a very good condition and absolutely matching our expectations. We got what we needed.

    Pauline and Rodrigo are really warm-hearted and have welcomed us cordially.
    Thank you both for a wonderful experience and next time we will definitely choose your place again!

  • Very quiet indeed. You cant even notice that there is a small baby upstairs. Pauline and Rodrigo were lovely and helpful just as everybody said. The place is neat and tidy just as seen on pictures. The shower and the bed are the best assets. The only downside for me is the location way up on the hill, good for a workout. Apart from that, the neighbourhood is quiet and very close to the subway!

I live in this house with my husband Rodrigo since March 2012. We both lived in various countries ( France, Argentina, China, Singapore) and decided to stop in Rio de Janeiro. I work with sustainable and organic projects in a small ONG, Rodrigo is a Naval Architect. We run in Flamengo aterro and sail together in the Guanabara bay. We always receive relatives and friends at home!! We love eating and know some special places in Rio. At home we don't have car but 4 bikes!
