We had a great stay in this room!! It was spacious and clean, and the bed was very comfortable. We also loved the neighborhood - close to bars and restaurants, and also close to transportation to other neighborhoods. We felt safe walking around in the day and at night.
The hosts are also great - friendly and helpful! An awesome place to stay if you are coming to Rio!
A estadia foi incrível, o Evandro foi muito atencioso, me informou sobre como chegar no local sem nem eu ter pedido! Super atencioso. O local em si é muito bom, tudo bem limpo e amigável

Ein Bilderbuch Host! Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt, alles war genau wie beschrieben. Das Haus ist sehr geräumig, wunderbar eingerichtet. Evandro stand uns bei allen Fragen zur Verfügung und hatte tolle Tipps.
Er ging individuell auf unsere Wünsche ein. Wir entspannt kochen und haben uns wie zu Hause gefühlt. Nach 3 Wochen Reise haben wir uns sehr über die Nutzungsmöglichkeit der Waschmaschine gefreut.
Das Viertel Santa Teresa ist nur wenige Gehminuten entfernt, bietet eine große Auswahl an Bars, Restaurants und Kunsthandwerksläden und ist auch abends sehr sicher. An die Strände Copacabana und Ipanema, sowie die wichtigsten Sehenswürdigkeiten sind mit dem Taxi für 20-30R$ am besten zu erreichen.
Vielen Dank und gerne wieder!
P.S.: Deutsche Gummibärchen sind ein willkommenes Gastgeschenk.
Evandro turned out to be a perfect host. We felt at home the minute we walked through the door. Everything was just like indicated on the website. The house is spacious, and lovely decorated. Evandro was always there to answer questions and provided us with many helpful tips. He made arranges whenever they were necessary due to our busy schedule. We made use of the kitchen and washing machine, we were free to use whenever the need came up. The charming neighborhood of Santa Teresa is just a couple of walking minutes away. Bars, restaurants and artsy shops are plenty around there. Even at night the neighborhood is save. The two beaches and other major attractions are not too far away either. Cab rides ranging from 20-30 Reais.
Many thanks to our great host. We would choose his lovely home again at any time.
P. s. German Gummi Bears are always welcome;)

I have no words to describe how awesome this apartment is! Besides being well located, close to beaches, bars and restaurants, the apartment is very neat and confortable. It definitly feels like home!
Evandro is very kind and provides any information you may need! I totally recomend!!
Evandro and Leonardo were wonderful hosts and Santa Teresa is a perfect place from which to explore Rio. Evandro is generous and thoughtful - he even got me a cake on my birthday - and he had excellent recommendations for day trips, dinners and transport. He speaks good English and German too. We can't recommend him highly enough. Thank you Evandro. Dan + Una
We stayed with Evandro and Leandro for 5 nights as a start of our trip through Brazil. First of all, they are really lovely people. Very friendly, helpfull and relaxed. We felt at home right away. We stayed in the large room which is nicely decorated, the bed is comfy and you have your own little terrace with a great view over the city. The house is on a good location, between Santa Teresa and Lapa. If you like to enjoy some of the bohémien lifestyle of Santa Teresa, with It's lovely little bars and cobble stone streets, you only have to walk up the Hill for 10 minutes, quite easy. Lapa is also very close and has a more urban feel to it. We would highly recommend staying here. Evandro makes a great breakfast too!
My friend Kayley and I stayed with Evandro and Leonardo for 2 nights and would highly reccomend their beautiful home. This was our first trip to Rio de Janiero and we loved it! They let us check in early. Upon our arrival they gave us an awesome map of Rio and a list is all the attractions and restaurants in Santa Theresa and Rio. We were able to ask them questions throughout our entire visit. Their house was very clean. On the day we left, they allowed us to check out late and Evandro even called a cab for us. The view from their terrace during breakfast was amazing. We felt right at home. Thanks Evandro and Leo!

We stayed with Evandro and Leonardo for 7 nights during Carnival. Their place is at walking distance of Lapa (if you are interested in night life), Santa Teresa, Center and the Sambodromo. The house is clean and cozy and the rooms are espacious. Their is only one bathroom, it is adequate but basic. Evandro is very helpful and he gave us a lot of tips about places to go, restaurants and transportation.
Eu e minha namorada gostamos demais da estadia na casa do Evandro e do Leonardo. A casa é linda, bem decorada, espaçosa, assim como o quarto em que ficamos. O café da manhã foi excelente e nós pudemos nos sentir em casa. A vista é bonita e o quarto é bem ventilado. Fomos super bem recebidos e com certeza voltaríamos em uma outra ocasião. Fica bem perto da Lapa, do aeroporto Santos Dumont e do metro Cinelândia que dá acesso às principais praias e pontos turísticos do Rio. Local nota 10. Anfitriões nota 10 também.
My girlfriend and I truly enjoyed staying at Evandro and Leonardo’s place. The house is beautiful, nicely decorated, spacious, as well as the bedroom we stayed. The breakfast was excellent and we could feel at home. The view is pretty and the bedroom is well ventilated. We were kindly welcomed. We surely would come back. It’s close to Lapa, Santos Dumont airport and Cinelandia subway station, which gives access to the main beaches and tourist points in Rio. Great place. Great host.
"Estive na casa de Evandro e Leonardo e posso garantir que eles sabem receber bem, é uma casa muito confortável e em uma lugar muito seguro, o bairro de Santa Teresa é muito agradável e com bons bares e restaurantes"
The house is very confortable and nicely decorated. The location is perfect: less than 5 min walking to Lapa , around 20 min by bus to Copacabana. Many restaurants, shops around. the subway is near(it's very safe). Rio is a great city with a strong spirit!! Evandro gave us many tips about the city: where to go; what to avoid, how to behave!! Just follow him . Many thanks Evandr o for your kind help!!
This is the best possible location if you want to experience the many aspects of Rio de Janeiro. Evandro e Leo are situated perfectly within. A five minute walk to the eclectic areas of Lapa,Gloria and Santa Theresa which are serviced with excellent public transport facilities to all the sights which Rio offers. They are friendly and very knowledgable on all aspects of Rio and Brazilian culture. If you want to be bored and spend your life savings,by all means stay at Copacabana during carnival,but if you want a real Brazilian experience with charming people stay at Evandro and Leo.

I had a great time! Big room, good breakfasts and friendly hosts. The house is also in a good location even if taxi drivers are sometimes confused by the address.
The house is fabulous. Very conviniently located and spacious. The design is very nice and cosy. It has got anything that is necessary for a nice and relaxing stay. The pictures exactly reflect the design and and statement of the room. Evandro and Leonardo are absolutely charming and helpful.
Evandro is a great person and her house is amazing. It is all organized and neat, and makes you wanna live there! I recommend everyone to stay at her place!
The house itself is *spotless* and very, very comfortable. Is like being at home! I warmly recommend this place to you!
Evandro and Leonardo are wonderful.
I really enjoyed staying at this house. It´s a really good option for Rio. It´s perfectly located for the beach, Lapa, Santa Teresa and downtown, but it´s nice and quiet. The house is very beautiful and has a lovely terrace where they serve a great breakfast. Stay with it guys, this is the best option.Evandro e Leonardo are really nice guys, and very easy to deal with. He dealt with any questions or problems immediately. I can definitely vouch for him!
Vou sempre a casa de Evandro e Leonardo e fico maravilhado com tanta beleza e bom gosto. Esses rapazes sabem muito sobre a arte de bem receber. Recomendo a quem deseja passar uma ótima temporada no Rio de janeiro – e aproveitar o máximo o chame de Santa Teresa e a agitação da Lapa.
Conheço a casa de Evandro e Leonardo e posso garantir que o que você vê nas fotos é o que você vai encontrar, eles recebem muito bem seus hóspedes, além disso, eu ofereço o serviço de tranfer, city tour e Rio by night.
