The space


Our house is known as “Canto da Carambola”. It is a special place for those who like nature, art and simplicity. Fruit trees, flowers, birds and small monkeys are all around. Parrots, toucans and owls also visit us frequently.

High ceiling (4m) and large windows opened to a small garden help keep room fresh with natural light and comfortable temperature.


We have two lovely dogs: Bebel and Olavo, and two nice cats: Maria and Tomzé. From terrace and backyard, we have a really wonderful view of downtown and Guanabara Bay.

Hi Miro, thanks for making our stay in Rio such a pleasant one! We loved everything about the house, the breakfast, the house and all the pets! The Santa Theresa Neighbourhood is also really lovely and conveniently located. Our trip to Brazil has been nothing short of amazing and it wouldn't have been possible without your hospitality. Please do contact us when you visit Singapore, we look forward to meeting you in this part of the world!

We loved staying at Miro's house. He is a wonderful host with a warm heart and always ready to help. The breakfast is great. There was never a breakfast as good as Miro's on our further trip through Brasilia :)

Miro is a superb host. He received us early in the day and was very helpful with good advices. His outdoor spaces are wonderful, green and nice with a good view to the city centre. His breakfast is also very good. All in all we felt very welcome and I really recomend staying in Miro´s place.

Miro is great! The room was great and the communal environment of the house was really nice. Great outdoor space and views, as well as a great breakfast every morning...ask for the eggs! The price was more than fair and there are a number of great areas to walk to.

We had a great experience during our time at Canto da Carambola in Rio. Their place is in a fantastic location, it is comfortable and they provide a delicious breakfast. Miro speaks English well and goes out of his way to assist his guests with travel tips and ideas and anything else that can make your stay an enjoyable one. I highly recommend this AirBnB.

We had a wonderful experience here. Miro, our host was amazing. He went above and beyond the duties of a host. He gave us recommendations of places to go and even helped us figure out how to get there. He made us a delicious breakfast every morning and it was fun to try different local juices and food. We had a few people in our group staying in different rooms. The suites were well worth it. If you want to stay for a few days and get the feel for a local neighborhood it was great. We would definitely stay here again next time.
