Nice rooms, clean bathrooms, and a kitchen available to guests with a refrigerator and tables to store and prepare meals. Also two terraces, one with a garden, where you can hang out, have a coffee, chat, and, if you're lucky, see hummingbirds, geckos, parrots or monkeys!
Free wireless internet for home use. And we can help you arrange samba classes, surf classes, or city tours...
Located on Santo Amaro Street, exactly between Gloria and Santa Teresa Disctrict,one of the most traditional areas of Rio de Janeiro, Very bucolic,bohemian,and old!
Street safe for walking. Close to many sights of Rio de Janeiro, as the Sugar Loaf, Flamengo Beach, Marina da Gloria, the Republic Museum, Lapa and the central region. Lapa is one of the most hectic and bohemian night spots with the best of Rio de Janeiro's restaurants, bars and nightclubs.
5 minutes walk from Gloria metro station, which makes it convenient to visit other neighborhoods.
On the same street you will find markets, pharmacies, restaurants, hospitals, bars and cafes.
Perfect place for backpackers who like to explore the city, nature and all the happiness around, in a very cool and safe location.
Welcome to Rio everybody!
Make yourself at home, respect the house, and the others :D
Incrível! Além de super espaçosa tem uma atmosfera excelente. Tudo lá combina com o Rio de Janeiro! O meu quarto era bem limpo e confortável, fez com que eu me sentisse super em casa. O bairro (melhor localização impossível) é excelente e bastante seguro - ah, além de todas as facilidades, o metrô fica ali muito pertinho... É extremamente fácil ir para outras regiões da cidade :)
O melhor de todos! O André é uma pessoa sensacional. Muito prestativo e atencioso, conhece o Rio de Janeiro muito bem e tem excelentes dicas sobre o que fazer.
Recomendo muito a casa de André para todos e definitivamente me hospedarei lá novamente na próxima visita ao Rio.
This was my second time staying with Andre, my room was quiet and cool, with a spacious verandah with hammock and lounging area. Andre was, as always, very accommodating and generous with his time and flexibility. I love the location, it gives a true sense of the neighborhoods in Santa Teresa with street life. I mostly travel alone and have felt safe walking around. There is easy access to shops, the metro, buses and Prai Flamengo.
I had a great time at Andre's. He's a very friendly and considerate host, and made me feel at home. I stayed for five weeks, and Andre became a friend. We hung out and he invited me to join in the things he was doing. Attending practices of his Carnaval orchestra was a wonderful experience.
The room itself was great. I was on the 2nd floor. There's a living room I used for work, a large, comfortable bed and bedroom, and an excellent balcony with views of the neighborhood.
The house is in a good location. It's a short walk to the heights of Santa Theresa, and Gloria avenue and metro are nearby. The street itself is a nice community.
I'll definitely be going back when I return to Rio.
yes, everything was ok, though there were some misunderstanding about the keys
We had a fantastic stay! There aren't enough words to describe how thankful and grateful we are for finding Andre and his place. The loveliest & warmest home away from home! We already miss colorful walls, fresh mangoes, cozy terrace, rooster‘s crow and many many more...
But the most amazing thing was that we came as strangers and depart as best friends :-)!
We will be back Andre! Thank you for taking such a good care of two crazy Lithuanian girls :-)
a very nice place. its such a beautiful house and the woman working there is so lovely. The host is also wonderful and she was a great help. we absolutely loved everything about it. btw carnival in Rio is awesome!!! :)
This guesthouse is a real oasis in Rio, exactly the type of place you want to come back to, or perhaps never leave! The house itself is gorgeous and vibrant (like Rio itself). Rooms are really spacious, and the house is set amid beautiful tropical jungle (expect to see monkeys), beautifully decorated, clean, and super comfortable with a very relaxed and friendly vibe. Its located really close to the Santa Teresa - an atmospheric suburb with great cafes, views, and bars, and 5 minutes walk from Gloria metro station, making it easy to get to the beaches (Ipanema, Copacabana) and other parts of Rio.
What makes this guesthouse really special are the amazing hosts Andre and Sarah. Andre is an exceptional host (as everyone else has pointed out!), super helpful, friendly, social, and a whole lot of fun! Nothing is too much trouble. Andre instantly welcomed me into the extended guesthouse family inviting me to amazing street and Samba parties, and chill out sessions at Flamengo beach which were highlights of my Rio trip.
I can't recommend this place highly enough. If you're lucky enough to be able to stay here - go for it! You will come as a guest, and if you ever leave, it will be as a friend!

“The best things in life are the simplest things. Sometimes I ask myself why I paddle out, catch a wave and paddle back out, over and over again, like a dog? It just feels good – simple as that.”
