Perfect if you are in Rio for work and need to be in a central location and have a wonderful place to relax; Perfect if you are a writer or artist and wants an inspiring place to work; perfect for the tourist who wants to experience the bohemian Rio.

The space

Have you ever thought you could enjoy a pristine setting right in the middle of Rio? Staying here you will be close to all main tourist attractions ( The Christ is right around the corner) and yet you can enjoy peace, quiet and a beautiful pool if that is your choice. This is a one bedroom house with a rooftop that can host up to three people. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you need to make a meal, including a laundry machine. You can also make your barbecue by the pool.This is a very safe neighborhood and the house has a security system.

Guest access

The garden, orchard, pool and terrace.

Interaction with guests

I live in the pink house that you see in the pictures, and I rent the guest house ( the darker pink or "beetroot" house).
The guest house has a separate entrance and you will have your space and privacy.
There is cleaning two times a week if you choose a longer stay.
The pool is a common area, but in case I am here ( since I travel a lot), I leave the pool entirely for my guest.
I love meeting my guests and helping them to navigate in this fascinating city. However, if you want privacy and solitude, your wish will be granted. Just let me know what you are looking forward in your stay.

Other things to note

This house is for dog lovers! Because my dog is a "people's person" and he will try to make friends with you. He is a sweet and loving animal and loves children.

My good luck with Airbnb's was surpassed with Marcel's beautiful and lovely space in the Santa Teresa neighborhood of Rio. Marcela is a great host in this fantastic little hideaway, a great place to come back to at the end of the day...or a great place to hang out during the day to write or read or rest. One can't do much better than this.

Marcella's house in Cosmo Velho is an oase in the middle of Rio. A small tropical paradise with alle the comfort you want. Marcella is a great host and is helpfull with everything she can. We loved to stay in Marcella's guesthouse and can recommend it to everyone. Ina, Sasha and Pieter

Marcella is a gracious host. The garden/pool area was beautiful. The weather was cool for Rio standards so a little warmer shower would have been appreciated. In warmer weather it would have been no problem.

This place was better than we could have hoped for even after seeing the beautiful photos. Marcela wasn't actually there to greet us, but she had sent her friends to welcome us who were extremely friendly and helpful. The flat has everything you would need - kitchen, double bedroom with air con, fans and also a small lounging area at the front. The flat is right next door to Marcela's beautiful house but still feels secluded and we definitely had our privacy. Just round the corner is the amazing pool and garden area, with plenty of space for sunbathing if you wish. All in all a wonderful little paradise in Rio within easy access of the main attractions of the city. Thank you Marcela!
