Hi, I'm Teresa originally from the UK but now living in Rio for the last 5 years after coming here to volunteer and falling in love with the city and deciding to stay. I now run Casa 579 as a guesthouse/bed and breakfast concept with strong links to supporting and volunteering in local community projects and also have my house (known as Casa 592) just across the road from the bed and breakfast. Depending on availability, you will see both Casa 579 and Casa 592 listed.
If you decide to come and stay either at the bed and breakfast or at my house, we will do our best to ensure you get the most out of your time in Rio and see the real, non-touristy side of the city. We also offer breakfast to all guests which is taken at Casa 579 and gives you a chance to meet other people travelling through the city which can be good if you are travelling alone.
Finally, a bit more about me...I love the music and cultural side of the city and of course the beach and the sun! When I'm not working you'll usually find me at one of the local "bailes" happening in the city (Samba or Salsa), at the local community project or on the beach and you are of course welcome to join me!
