The Space

Myself and my husband live in beautiful apartment here in Rio. There is quite a large living space and the room itself is clean, light and airy.

We're both musicians; I sing and also teach English privately. My husband sings and plays the guitar. We're both very easy-going, love a beer or two ;) and absolutely love music and all things fun! We sometimes have gatherings at home where we invite our musician friends to jam and share new music and of course as our guest you're more than welcome to participate! You can practise your Portuguese with my husband as he is Brazilian. I am English but I also speak Portuguese well!

Interaction with Guests

If we are free during your stay we can take you to the locals bars and (email hidden) to dance samba!

The Neighborhood

We live in Santa teresa, one of the best neighbourhoods in Rio, I think! It's full of bohemian, artistic, creative people. Where we live is at the top of Santa, in the midst of nature so don't be surprised to see little monkeys and toucans!

Getting around

The house is actually about a 20 minute walk from the centre of Santa Teresa, Largo Guimares. We have a bus stop right outside our home and you can get buses to Lapa (15 mins), home to Rio's nightlife and the centre (20 mins) . The beaches of Copacabana and Ipanema are 20 minutes by taxi. So come and enjoy Rio!

  • Folake is English but has been living in Rio for some time now and so was a great person to stay with and help me get to know the carioca life better. Carnival was crazy but fun and Santa Teresa (email hidden) to stay as it is a bit cheaper and feels a bit more like the real Rio than the South side.

    The only caution is that the area is hilly and not well served by public transport, so there is a little walking to be done. Hot work in the middle of summer!

  • I had a great week at Folake´s place. Folake is a very hospitable and helpful host, and Santa Teresa is clearly one of the finest neighbourhoods in Rio. Beautiful and peaceful, within walking distance from Centro, Gloria, Catete and the great grooves of Lapa.

About
I am a singer and I also teach English privately.I am very easy-going, love a beer or two ;) and absolutely love music and all things fun! I speak English, and u can also practise your Portuguese with me! Living in Santa teresa, is fantastic and I believe it's one of the best neighbourhoods in Rio! It's full of bohemian, artistic, creative people. The apartment is about a 20 minute walk from the centre of Santa Teresa, Largo Guimares, in a beautiful residential part, high up near the forest. Don't be surprised if you see monkeys and toucans! So come and enjoy Rio! p.s I have now moved house so Jack's review is a little redundant! As mentioned here our apartment is really well located with easy access to buses and taxis which pass in front of the building!
