Our house is large and comfortable with 3 bedrooms, kitchen, a living room, a bathroom, and a veranda / deck. We live near a pacified community in a very beautiful neighborhood called Santa Teresa--near all tourist sites and public transportation.
The house is in Santa Teresa, which is a laid-back bohemian neighborhood, but also has good nightlife. One of the best bars in Rio is a short walk from your front door. We are very, very close to public transport to all major tourist destinations in Rio. You can go to Maracana in 15 minutes.
Guests will have access to free wifi, shower with hot and cold water, bikes, and much more!
The house can comfortably keep 6 people. But we have beds for 10!
We will be close by. We can be very present, if the guests want help with anything, but also, if the guests prefer, we can stay away for the time of their stay!
My wife and I are renting both a house and new guest house in Rio de Janeiro. I'm from the U.S. and she's from Rio. We also offer volunteer work opportunities, airport transfer/pick up and tours. We're located in the Santa Teresa neighborhood, the most laid back and bohemian part of Rio, close to all major tourist destinations and the beach!
Apart from renting rooms and the hostel / guesthouse, we run a volunteer agency. So if you would like to volunteer your time to make Rio a better place while you're here, we can help you find the position that's right for you -- from clearing trails in the Tijuca Forest, to working in an orphanage, to helping out at a ballet school in a favela, we have all sorts of job placements!
