The Space

Private room in a beautiful architectural house in the middle of Rio de Janeiro's Tropical Forest

Wide bathroom, room is fully furnished with double bed, wardrobe and a work desk. Wireless internet, AC, cable TV and mini-bar inside the room. Outside the room we provide a sink and a microwave oven. Bed and bathroom linens included.

Accommodates: 2 people.

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.

We also welcome you to hang out in our pool, and to have a cup of coffee in our beautiful garden.

Within walking distance you can take taxis and find a bus stop to go wherever in the city.

Please let us know if you have any questions!

  • 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!

  • 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!

  • Thiago an Eryka's place is truly a comfortable paradise in a tropical forest! We were three in a room and had a great time. Space was not a problem since there is an outdoor shower, two decks and a table with chairs to eat breakfast and have snacks after the beach (nice lights set up to enjoy the evening too). Ten minutes walk up you can find a waterfall and two minute walk down an amazing Italian resto. The internet is quick, the views are amazing and the beds are comfy ad clean. Really a true gem tucked 5 min drive away from the action packed barra beach.

  • We had a very pleasant stay with Thiago and his family... Too bad it was so short! The independent room+bathroom has its own entrance and is very convenient. It's not super easy to get there if you don't have a car, but once you are there, it's an oasis of peace in the middle of the tropical forest.
    The room is clean and comfortable, the shower large and great. The airco perfectly working.
    The place is perfect if you want to explore Rio and the surroundings while staying away from the city chaos. Last year we stayed in Ipanema and it was a completely different experience, but we enjoyed both.

  • Very very very nice place to stay. Only 5 min by car away from the most touristic spots in Barra (olegario marciel street, praia do pepe). You sleep very well, bed is very comfortable, shower is clean and huge and the view is beautiful. You are situated on the street that people start to hike the Barra de Tijuca Forest from.
    Tucans and birds chirpping and a nice afternoon sunset can be seen. You can see the ocean at the distance also. Parking available and easy on the street. Very safe area. You can use the pool and the deck above or eat breakfast on the deck below.
    Thiago and Eryka are very nice, they offered us coffee and cookies even if they have a 10 month old daughter sleeping upstairs on a Sunday night. Worth the visit, stay, if you like to rock climb there is also a surprise in the garage when you arrive :)
    Nice to meet you guys!
    Até a próxima!

  • Os anfitriões são nota 10! Super atenciosos e acolhedores. A casa é maravilhosa, não falta nada. A natureza torna o ambiente ainda mais aconchegante e agradável. A harmonia do lugar nos deixou encantados. Valeu muito a pena! Recomendamos!
