The Blue House in Santa Teresa is really nice, well located, in a silent place, full of nature, at the same time near downtown, Lapa and Gloria - 10 or 20 min walk to any of these places. It´s a family house. Great for turists, students and workers of all ages. There are rooms available for one or two people. Two rooms have ceiling fan and the other has a regular fan. You can use the kitchen and we offer laundry service. Internet WI-FI available. The house is near Largo do Guimarães, the cultural center of Santa Teresa, with cinema, shops, restaurants, lots of bars and music!!!!! Santa Teresa is well-know for the artists that live in the neighborhood, and the cultural and social life. It's a hill, full of green from the trees and blue from the sky. Lots of birds and sometimes we have the luck to see some little monkeys!!! GRATITUDE***
The guests can use the kitchen, do their own meals, or, if they prefer can give some extra money for eating with us at the house. I like when the guests feel home, but it's always important to wash and clean after cooking!!! Gratitude! The guest can also use the washing machine!!! We have toaster, oven, iron. But we don't have micro-wave. It would be better if the guest avoid cooking meat and chicken at the house. GRATITUDE!!
Interaction with Guests
I really like receiving people in my house. You're welcome. We're all one. Love and gratitude.
Quiet and friendly neighborhood. Usually very calm and silent. It's a 5 min walk, to Largo do Guimaraes, the cultural and social center of Santa Teresa. It's a 10min walk to Lapa and a 15min walk to metro Gloria or Cinelândia.
You can come to the house walking or by bus, from Riachuelo Street (Lapa). From Gloria, you can come walking up the hill or get a Kombi. From both places, you can come by taxi or mototaxi.
Other Things to Note
I would prefer if people don't smoke cigarette in the house and don't cook meat. Gratitude***

I was extremely lucky to stay with Amala and her family. She is a wonderful person with great knowledge of Rio. I felt very welcome and comfortable in her home and enjoyed waking up to fresh coffee in the morning! The location of the house is very central and close to public transport. The avocado tree in the backyard was filled with wildlife - monkeys and toucans where some of the highlights.
I would recommend this house to any traveller looking for a great experience in Rio!
Thank you Amala!
Amala is a wonderful and welcoming hostess. With her family and their congratulations friends I have felt very comfortable. I will return to spend more time at this amazing place. Thank you for this wonderful time. Edgar

Amala is my initiation name at yoga. It's hard to describe oneself because we are so many things at the same time... I love the nature and search seing the divine in all beings.I have travelled a bit, speak 4 languages and love flowing by the universes...
I worked for 13 years as a journalist, than changed all life and since 2005 I'm a Yoga instructer. Also do Ayurvedic Massage, Tradicional Thai Massage, Reiki Usui and Karuna Reiki. I'd say I'm an agent of peace culture. GRATITUDE***
