This is a nice apartment in the heart of Rio de Janeiro city, located in Santa Teresa, near the bohemian Lapa district. It comfortably fits two. Everything you need is near this comfy apartment with wi-fi. Enjoy the artistic atmosphere!

The space

Santa Teresa is an artistic hotspot. It is home to several artists and art studios and galleries. Restaurants add to the local culture. There are also some museums and belvederes (Museu da Chácara do Céu and Parque das Ruínas). On the top of Santa Teresa is the Tijuca Forest, the largest urban forest in the whole world, where the Corcovado Mountain is.

The apartment is near Lapa district, the main center of bohemian Rio, which has many traditional pubs, concert halls, cinemas, theaters, cultural centers, Samba clubs, restaurants, old historical houses converted into trendy antique stores and of course the famous Lapa Arches! Only 10 minutes walking from where Rio’s best nightlife and cultural scene is.

And for those who want to visit the beaches of the south zone of Rio are just less than half an hour by bus or by metro. The apartment is only 15 minutes walking from Cinelandia metro station.

If you want to be in the middle of everything, but still somewhere safe, this is the place to be!

Thais was a fantastic host! When I arrived she took the time to explain the local area and left us some great tips. During our stay anything we needed she responded straight away. She even left lots of delicious fruit in the fridge :) The apartment is great- has everything you need and lovely decoration. The neighbourhood, Santa Teresa for me is the best part of Rio and I loved staying here- lots of cobbled streets and beautiful views of the city with great restaurants and bars.

We stayed in Thais apartment for 10 days over the Olympics and for us it was in the perfect location. It's an easy walk to central station or to catch a bus down to the beaches. The Santa Teresa neighbourhood is beautiful and has great bars & restaurants, also very close to the bars in Lapa. We felt safe and comfortable walking around. Thais gave us some excellent tips before we arrived and a lovely friend of hers met us at the apartment when we arrived and left. There was also water, fruit and beers waiting for us on our arrival. The apartment is really comfortable and has everything that you'd need for a short or long stay.

We spent 2 excellent weeks in Thais' apartment. Even though we didn't meet her directly, the whole communication was perfect, and a good friend of her took care of our arrival and departure. Special thanks to Flavio for his nice and helpful tips. Flat is clean, charming, well decorated. Wifi is ok (about 9MB/1MB). Neighborhood is calm, but taking the steps makes you less than 5min away from lively streets and restaurants, and 15min away from Lapa. We'd happily recommend that flat for a young couple wishing to discover something else than Copacabana.

Thais' apartment was perfect for us. We really enjoyed our stay in Rio. The apartment is well located in Santa Teresa and very close to Lapa with a lot of restaurants and bars. Thais welcomed us with cold water and fresh fruits. She had a lot of insider tipps for us, especially for Carnaval. We can highly recommend and would like to come back!!!

Thais was the most welcoming host we've had so far. She really went out of her way to be there when we showed up, show us around the apartment, and give us plenty of tips about the local area (She also spoke great English). The apartment itself was both secure and very nicely furnished, perfect for us. We enjoyed long walks down the nearby stairs to the nearby juice bar (they're a real workout!). Thais was also very understanding when we had to leave our stay early on short notice. All in all a great experience.

We had a wonderful time at Thais' house, it had everything we needed. Perfect location for Lapa and Santa Teresa nightlife, about 30 minutes away from Ipanema. Safe location, friendly neighbours, ideal for couple. Thais was really helpful with giving us weekly tips on events and parties. We would stay here again!
