Evandro is super kind and a super host. I haven't met Leonardo. Evandro is very helpfull and can give you good advises! The place is great with a beautiful view! The room doesn't have airco..so it was quite warm, but despite it was doable. Santa Theresa is a very nice neighberhood and I felt quite safe. you can ask Evandro also nice suggestions for great movies and music ;-)
i really had a wonderful time with evandro and leonardo in rio. it´s a wonderful place to stay there. they are both very helpful and friendly. i loved to stay on the nice veranda. they gave me a feeling of home. the breakfast is also fine, the coffee ist great!!! and i love their cat apollo :-) santa teresa for me is the best area to stay. it´s easy to reach all other places by bus and metro. i would like to return
Wonderful hosts -- Evandro and Leonardo went out of their way to be accommodating -- preparing a wonderful breakfast every morning, giving us advice about the tourist attractions, allowing us to use their washing machine to do our laundry and even finding a friend to fix our computer. We spent a glorious New Year's Eve with them on the beach at Copacabana, and they even arranged to buy the subway tickets in advance. Every need of ours was taken care of. Their location is superb and very close to many attractions including the Samba nightclubs. When we return to Rio, we will definitely stay with them again -- such truly wonderful hosts. An absolute treasure staying with them.
We had a good stay at Evandros and Leonardos apartment. This stay was special mainly because of the lovely people around. Since there are several rooms rented via airbnb we always had great company for breakfast, but also to discover Santa Teresa and Rio together with others. However, since there are different rooms available ours was the one that is in the center of the flat and therefore affected mostly by noise. For those sensitive to noise we would recommend to decide for the other rooms. Evandro gave us advices what to see, how to get there, was always around to answer questions and arranged the transport to the airport with a trustful driver. We would love to get back to Rio soon, mainly because of the happy people you meet there.
Great hosts. Evandro has more than adequate english and is very helpful in advice about places to go and transport instructions. The breakfasts are good, a bit too much white bread and cheese but that seems to be traditional food. Evandro put out a lot of fresh fruit too so no complaints really.
We stayed in room #3 first and then switched to room #1 which easily the nicest of the 3 as it's like a mini suite. With (almost) own balcony. Really nice and clean except the shared bathroom is a bit shabby. Not dirty but just not renovated to a high standard. Altogether a really great place and in a superb part of the city.
Quero agradecer ao Evandro, pois ele foi um excelente anfitrião, desde de o primeiro contato sempre atencioso e solicito.
A casa é muito boa, antiga mais muito bem conservada e decorada. O quarto é amplo. Não tivemos problema algum em nossa estádia.
Santa Teresa é um bairro muito legal e bem pertinho da Lapa, a casa fica a uns 10 minutos andando. Táxi para Copacabana por exemplo uns R$ 20,00.
Podem se hospedar sem "medo", tudo que o Evandro nos disse foi cumprido e o preço é muito bom, preço honesto.
Abraços a Evandro e ao (email hidden)óxima!!!
My friend and I had a great time staying in Evandro and Leonardo's amazing house. They are both extremely friendly and accommodating and really go out of their way to ensure your stay is a great one. They also prepare a wonderful breakfast/ coffee for you each morning.
The house itself is in the best neighbourhood in Rio. It is an easy walk to some great restaurants as well as the nightlife of Lapa. It is also close to public transport if you were wanting to explore other parts of the city.
Thank you for everything guys.
The first stay in a new city/country can be abit nervous and alot to arrange.. When enter Evandos/Leonardos house you feel like enter a 5 star hotel service, all inclusive.
They made my stay like going to my best friends with their mindset to make my stay the very best ever.. and guess what?, they succeeded! :)
Rooms are in nice, peaceful area, santa teresa, just a walk distance to Lapa and all action in Rio.
Evandro and Leonardo are there to help you in all matters, with the nice brakfast, good coffe, making laundry and alway give you a good feeling that you are their special guests..
I warmly recommend this place to familly, friends and anyone who care for having their best time.
To you Evandro and Leonardo, a big Thank you ! I will always remember you as very good friends and I will be back for sure!
see you next time

A casa está localizada em Santa Tereza, um bairro tranquilo que possui fácil acesso a diversos pontos da cidade do Rio de Janeiro, como o bairro da Lapa, ao qual é possível chegar a pé. O fato de ser de um casarão antigo dá um toque especial para as acomodações, que são razoavelmente grandes, arejadas e com uma ótima vista para a Lapa e o Centro do Rio. Também não há o que reclamar dos anfitriões sempre presentes e prestativos para o que fosse necessário. Tivemos uma ótima estada e indicamos principalmente para quem quer curtir as noites contagiantes do Rio de Janeiro.
