Our house is large and comfortable with a veranda and hammock. We live near the favela of Coroa in a very charming, beautiful neighborhood called Santa Teresa--5 minutes from the Sambodromo and very close to major tourist sites.
We are interested in long term renters for a price of R$800 per month.
Internet, electric, and water bills are included in the price of rental.
If you only want to rent for Carnaval or New Years the price is R$1000 for a full week.
We have free wifi, the house has a garden, a hammock, and is within walking distance of public transport. Arrive at all major tourist destinations in about 20 minutes!
We live in a house close by. If you need any help, we will be there for you, but can also give you privacy!
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!
