Adam and Paulo are the epitome of great hosts. They are welcoming, enthusiastic, and most helpful. They had a full house for World Cup and I watched them deal with even the most high maintenance guests with grace and ease.
Breakfast is delicious. My sis and I are vegetarians and found the fresh fruit, cheese, rolls, and yogurt to be delish--and Paulo makes a nice cup of strong coffee. He serves with warmth, making sure my thin sister ate something :)
The location is superb. Short bus ride to all the restaurants and groovy shops of Santa Teresa. I really loved the neighborhood.
Thank you Adam and Paulo for your hospitality and for a wonderful introduction to your fantastic neighborhood. I do hope you will come and visit us in the Bay Area!!
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 with a huge TV, 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!
