PS: Don't let the map fool you we are NOT located in a Favela and our neighborhood is extremely safe and peaceful!
Lovely stay over Carnaval... Both Adam and Paulo are very welcoming - breakfasts are good too!
It is a very nice and safe area, the room was clean, breakfast was very nice, only sometime the water for shower is bit cold. It was a very good experience staying with Adam and Paulo, Adam provided us lots of helpful information. Paulo is very sweet and kind. Thank you!!
Everyone should experience a stay at Adam and Paulo's house.
I spent 1 month in Rio, and my last 2 nights were in their house. I wish I could have met them before.
This house is very big, Paulo and Adam make a great team together, they both have an excellent sense of service and they are very welcoming.
I had the chance to go on a wonderful hike with Adam to Pico da Tijuca, and I would't have found the path alone. Thank you Adam.
I wanted to watch the US Open tennis tournament, and they gave me a room (email hidden), it could't be better. Perfect conditions.
If you need help in Rio, they will know everything about the city.
Very good breakfast.
The neighborhood is very nice, a 15-20 minutes walk from the train to Cristo Redentor (5 mn by taxi), and the view from the house is spectacular. 10 minutes by bus to Largo do Guimaraes, the heart of Santa Teresa.
DO NOT MISS ADAM, PAULO AND THEIR HOUSE WHILE YOU ARE IN RIO
We stayed 3 nights at Paulo&Adam's house and had a memorable experience. The location was very convenient for us as it it 4 minutes of bus (multiple lines) from Largo de Guimaraes which is the beating heart of Santa Teresa. The house is amazing, featuring a great art collection. We enjoyed staying in the upper room which has a balcony with a direct view on the Corcovado and was very spacious. Our hosts Adam & Paulo were really nice, very discrete but always up for a chat and giving multiples good advices while they were serving a great breakfast in the morning. I strongly recommend this house to stay if you're looking for a more typical experience than a hotel room on the beachfront of Copacabana .
Good stay in a beautiful location with a fab view overlooking Christo (view from the bed!). The upstairs slightly more expensive rooms were spectacular! This is a quiet area in cool Santa Teresa, for confident travellers who aren't nervous to hop on the bus or walk about in a non tourist area. Perfectly safe from our experience. Adam was a wonderful host, and Paulo very nice too. A stunning traditional house. Delicious breakfast included too.
My husband and I cannot thank Adam and Paulo enough for making our stay so wonderful. The location is perfect and it is really easy to get in and out of town. Adam helped us navigate public transportation AND helped us plan the rest of our trip. Indispensable help. The house is huge, private, super clean, and quiet. Paulo makes a killer breakfast (the scrambled eggs!) and is a great host. We can't recommend this place enough!
The house is in a perfect place. In the beginning, when you are going up to Santa Teresa hills, it seems that has no ending, but when you arrived and get into the house, everything makes sense!
The view is wonderful and furniture and structure unique!
Besides that, Paulo, the owner of the house is a singular host. He makes everything for your best experience there.
Adam is very helpful also.
I strongly recommend the place, and for sure I will came back!
