The room is independent from our house which is located in a very charming and super safe neighborhood. We are in the middle of the Tijuca's Rain forest, which is the biggest urban forest in the world. If you are keen to nature, you can hike up the road by our door step and you will find hikings to a waterfall and to the summit of Gavea's mountain (pedra da gávea). If you go down to the opposite direction you will find restaurants, markets and commerce. The house is only 15-20 minutes walk distance from Barra's beach, one of Rio's most beautiful.

Thiago is a great host. He provided very detailed maps for us so we knew where the grocery store was, where the taxi stand was and recommended lots of restaurants. The room was clean and looked exactly like the pictures. The house is in a great spot, in the Barra neighborhood in Rio, which is very safe and we felt very comfortable walking around at night. There are many stores to go shopping in nearby and many restaurants and bars that are within walking distance.
The grocery store is very close and has anything you could ever want.
We didn't know were to stay while visiting Rio and have chosen Thiago and Erika's place were we have spent 5 nights. That was an excellent choice!!!! Very nice guests, beautiful house... Probably better to have a car, but perfect location if you like Rio de Janeiro's amazing nature (Tijuca forest, Barra beach...) We had a great time. Thank you very much!
Excelente local e anfitriões. Muito atenciosos e preocupados em fazer da estadia um momento tranquilo e agradável. Recomendo fortemente!
Lugar hermoso, tranquilo y súper recomendado!
Thiago es muy buen anfitrión, siempre estuvo al tanto de lo que pudiera necesitar durante mi estadía.
This is a very nice place to stay! The place has all you need for a trip to Rio de Janeiro, with a great location right by Tijuca national park, near the beach and easy public transportation. The place looks exactly as on the pictures and everything was very clean and tidy. Thiago is very hospitable and provided useful information upon our arrival; of what we could do in the city and where to find good places to eat and drink (and a map). We enjoyed our stay a lot and strongly recommend the place. We would definitely want to revisit Thiago’s place if we ever went back to Rio de Janeiro! Thank you Thiago and Erika.
The property is located in a gated, quiet community that is very safe, even for walking at night. Eating breakfast in the patio we observed small monkeys that were very shy.
Having stayed in the Santa Teresa neighborhood before coming here, it becomes clearer that safety is an important consideration in RIO.
I had my birthday while I was there and Thiago's wife baked me a delicious chocolate birthday cake and prepared a nice breakfast for us in the main house Patio. A very nice and sweet couple.
Room is comfy, clean and has aircon, though not rally needed, as the lush vegetation in the area provides natural cooling. Also has High Def TV with lots of channels and a small fridge and microwave.
Room also has good internet and is close to very nice smaller, hidden beaches that Thiago will tell you about. Also close to Pedra Bonita, where the Para gliders and Hang gliders launch from.
The room is separate and below the main house, providing privacy. It's like a small studio apartment with a separate entrance from that of the main house. There are several stairs to climb,. though it was no problem.
Buses and Taxis are minutes away by foot and you can walk to Barra de Tijuca, as we did - at night.
My Fiancee and I both enjoyed our stay with Thiago and his wife very much, even though we barely saw them. And I am thankful for the birthday cake and birthday breakfast they made for us!!
I can highly recommend Thiago's place and hospitality!
