Paolo and Natalia are wonderful hosts who helped us with everything. Our room was large, quiet and comfortable, and the breakfasts were superb. Although the location is a little way from the centre there are frequent cheap buses or taxis to get you around. Santa Teresa is in a higher part of the city. It is more peaceful and the views, including direct sight of Cristo Redentor, are mesmerising. Definitely one of the best Airbnbs we have stayed in. Highly recommended.

My wife and I had a wonderful time at Paolo's during our Carnival stay! Everything was amazing – from the spacious rooms that offered outstanding views of Cristor and the Sugarloaf, to the daily wonderful loaded breakfasts and fantastic collection of art work. Natalia and Paolo have a great knowledge of the local area and broader City so they are able to provide really good tips on things to do (and the best way to do them!) There is a regular supply of hot water and the bathrooms are cleaned regularly, so you are guaranteed a fresh shower after your day in the sun. Great house, wonderful hosts! Highly recommended

This hidden gem was so very beautiful! The home is very beautiful with great art, big bedroom and a great bathroom! The best thing about our stay was the people ! Natalia is such a sweetheart, completely welcoming and so very helpful! She provided great information about how to do things in Rio, lots of maps and guides as well. The view from this place is so amazing. Natalia and Roberto, thank you for treating us like your friends and your warm hospitality will always be remembered. Thank you so much!

Adam and Paulo were very welcoming into their extraordinary house. Very beautiful building set in Santa Teresa overlooking the Christ the Redeemer statue!! The breakfast was great, as was the service provided. The location is very good as the bus stops almost at the front door. Natala is a very beautiful lady who will help you with anything, i.e locating a specific place or helping book tickets etc. We highly recommend this BNB and hope to come visit in the near future.

A very nice and quirky house in Santa Teresa. Natalia was a lot of help with tourist information about the area. Very close to a bus stop that takes you to the heart of Santa Teresa (10 min bus ride/30 min walk) or the Metro station. The house itself has very nice views of Christ the Redeemer. I was a bit surprised at the distance from main parts of Santa Teresa, but I should have done my homework. Everyone at the house is super nice. Surprisingly, we ran into Paulo again on our flight back to the US. :)

I really enjoyed my stay here. Paulo and Natalia were very friendly and always helpful. I particularly enjoyed the great breakfasts, large bedroom and large bathroom! It was far better than many hotel stays I have had. Also think Santa Teresa was a better location than the beach. The area was lively and artistic. I really didn't want to leave at the end of my stay here. Would love to come back again!

At the risk of over-doing it, I couldn't have felt more at home here with Paulo and Nathalia. They have been so kind and caring, and the atmosphere of this house feels like my home away from home. The various holiday mishaps [missed flights/stolen wallets and keys] were dealt with efficiently, and Nathalia's calmness made those horrid things feel ok. Our balcony had the most amazing views. Santa Teresa is beautiful and bohemian [safe too]. I couldn't have asked for a better introduction to Rio. What a pleasure to stay here! [Honourable mention to Paulo's sublime breakfast eggs...]
