Come stay with us in our beautiful colonial home here in the neighborhood with the best views of Rio, Santa Teresa!!
Santa Teresa is truly unique as it provides a much needed break from the hustle and bustle of the over packed tourist locations like Ipanema and Copacabana without sacrificing accesability to all the best locations in Rio. The character of our nearly hundred year old "mansion" is guaranteed to grab your attention with large quantities of tasteful Brazilian art and antiques from all over the world.

The nearest Metro stop is only 5 minuets away, the easiest way to navigate the city. Lapa, the best place to experience the bohemian spirit of Rio is only 10 minutes away.

We have a great experience during the World Cup. Excellent location near to the best places in Rio. Adam and Paulo, thank you so much.
My family and I had a wonderful stay with Adam and Paulo during New Years week. Adam was friendly and knowledgeable, and provided us with plenty of tips for places to visit and restaurants to eat at. Paulo made us a great breakfast every morning and was very great to talk to.
This room was exactly as advertised, and the entire home was beautifully decorated. It was downstairs from the entrance floor, and offered enough privacy. Very spacious, with a living room area, bedroom, and private bathroom. The place was clean and homey. The biggest problem for my parents was the lack of air conditioning (it was a very warm week, and it was mentioned that air conditioning is being installed in the future), but despite that we still enjoyed our stay.
Location wise we felt very safe. The home is up on a hill in Santa Teresa, and the most convenient way to get around is by cab (quite affordable). We had some mild difficulty trying to get cabs up on the hill during the week, but this was understandable given the holiday. Adam provided us with written directions to home for our Taxi drivers, which came in handy pretty often.
