Andre was a great host, very helpful, friendly, relaxed, informative. His house was in a quiet neighbourhood, not far from the shops and cafes of Santa Teresa and easy links with the rest of Rio by bus and metro, while you were virtually facing onto a jungle with monkeys and toucans from the patio.
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.
Andre is a great host and his house is great. We stayed on the top floor and loved the terrace. Great for chilling in the afternoon/evening after walking around all day. It's a 10 minute walk down the hill to get groceries/other conveniences, but we didn't mind. Andre is very welcoming and an awesome guy. He will give you great tips for Rio!! I totally recommend his place if you want to be near Santa Teresa/Lapa. We walked back from the bars in Lapa late one night and felt totally safe. Also, the street cart burger lady down the street is awesome. $1.80 for a huge burger...great drunk food ;)
I had a great time during my stay with Andre! The house it just as pictured, with an old cottage charm feeling. The neighborhood centrally located within anything that you would need; bar, restaurant, grocery, pharmacy. And the Metro is a block away which is an added bonus! The house is on a hill, but if you get tired of walking, there are plenty of taxis around.
Andre was very friendly and hospitable. My friends and I came for New Years Eve, and he provided us with a multitude of tips on places to go, how to avoid the crowds, and staying safe. Definitely helpful! I would stay with Andre again should I return to Rio.
Andre is a wonderful host, very friendly, helpful and comprehensive. He always does his best to make you feel comfortable. The house is big and very peaceful, and the neighborhood is really safe. I highly recommend this place for a stay in Rio ! Thank you Andre :-)

Andre was the ideal host for my stay in Rio! He's a true local, full of great advice and helpful information. He showed me around the neighbourhood and dedicated his time to making me feel welcome. This was my first Air bnb stay and I'm so grateful it was such a positive experience, so much more than what I expected. The house is delightful, beautifully decorated, quiet and very spacious. I loved relaxing up on my very own balcony. Thank you Andre for making my time in Rio so enjoyable. I definitely recommend this stay!
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.
It was realy my pleasure to stay in his home. He gave me many valuable advices what so see, what to do in Rio. My recomandations to all
I met Andre and his girlfriend Maurizia few years ago in Portugal and when I traveled to Brazil with my sister, we stayed at their place for few days. They are both very nice people, who make you feel very welcome at their place, show you around and help you in any way. Thank you again for that! :) And their place is amazing! The house looks really nice and has a great view. I still miss those breakfasts on terrace, surrounded by trees and animals. It was awesome! The other good thing is that it's close to the beach, center and Lapa. It's a nice neighborhood, where you can truly meet the real Brazil. I recommend everyone to visit them, you won't regret!
Andrea é una persona splendida!!!! Mi sono sentita subito a mio agio nella sua bella casetta a Rio de Janeiro in rua santo amaro, abbiamo fatto tante belle cose insieme: cucinato la pizza, siamo stati nella lapa, e siamo andati a santo o cristo. Di sicuro ritornerò a trovarlo anche perchè mi ha promesso il suo piatto forte: risotto con il mango e la rucola! tvb andre!!!!
Andre is amazing guy and friend! I´m really lucky person that I know him, because he is everything what you would like to have in your brother, friend or partner! I knew Andre from one party in Prague, but I already know so much things about him and he knows a lot of things about me. He´s responsable, trustful, kind person and everytime gentelman. I highly recommend his place in Rio and if you want to enjoy your trip in Brazil you can´t miss his place, his kitchen and of course you can´t miss meeting him!
Bom, falar do André ...
Uma pessoa adorável, super companheiro, as vezes meio encabulado, mas sempre busca o melhor pra si, já visitou vários lugares, lugares lindo e sereno como ele !!Já conheceu vários mares lindos e bravos como ele!!
Ele é muito aventureiro e corajoso isso não posso negar, mas acho que é umas das qualidades que tem!!
Não nos conhecemos por acaso, o acaso nos achou e a tempos descobrimos que somos irmãos, que mesmo por longe, que mesmo sem saber como um ou outro estas. Sinto que estas tao perto de mim, coisa de irmão sabe ?!
Um homem de coragem merece ter uma vida profissional digna de seus principios!!
é simples assim o André que conheci, meu maninho André!!
André is an amazing guy!
