The Space

House is planted in mountain top, in highs of Santa Teresa neighbohood, circled by exuberant nature. Located in a private condo, it´s private road is used only by a charming mono-rail car. It´s a place of peace and nature enjoyment and also close to the bohemian Lapa and Rio´s City Center.

Inside the condo you can admire small monkeys, tucanos, parrots, jacus and a large variety of small birds feeding on our trees or on fruits the neighboors offer.

House is all white decorated with bright colors and a local contemporary art collection, a assorted library on the city history and it´s art scene is available for the guest.

Guest room is airy and cosy, house common areas and kitchen are available to use.

House is next to a state national reserve, Parque Estadual da Floresta da Tijuca and to Corcovado hill and Cristo Redentor statue. Host can indicate or guide guests through walkings on forest road, trails and river bathing on top of Rio, close to the house.

A bus stop right in front of condo takes you to the bohemian Lapa and to Rio´s City Center, in no more than 15 minutes. At 5 minutes walk vans will take you to metro station, also in a 15 minutes journey.

I´ll be glad to receive you at home and advice on the best spots for culture and nature in Rio.

  • A unique and wonderful experience.. Roberta's apartment is in a magical little community of apartments high up in the hills of Santa Teresa and serviced by its own private tram car which is serviced 24 hours a day. The tram winds up and up and up further into the hills, through a narrow passage flanked by trees and flowers. Roberta's apartment must have the best view of all of them, possibly the best in Rio! While the room isn't super luxurious, and lacks a little in furniture, the apartment is gorgeous - light and airy - and Roberta makes you feel fully at home. Roberta herself is sweet, charming and extremely hospitable - she even invited me to their private yoga class and made me delicious and healthy dinners. I would highly recommend a stay here.
