This is the biggest room in the house. It has 2 windows and 2 doors (one to the living room and one to the hallway). It's very bright and with good air circulation. Besides the bed, guests can rest on a hammock or on the sofa. There are two bathrooms available, both with showers. A big one and a small one.

We offer guests a great breakfast with self-made bread, many fruits, yogurt, cereal, jams, different types of cheese, ham and more. It also changes from time to time so you won't get bored!

The space

We live in an old two store house on one of Santa Teresa's hills. Very close to all the bars, restaurants and shops, but still in a quiet street. The tram station is also nearby. Parking is also not a problem, if you come by car you can park it right in front of the house for free.

Guest access

The house has fast wi-fi internet, a fully-equipped kitchen and a washing machine.

Interaction with guests

We live in the upper floor, that has a separate entrance, but we're available most of the time since we work from home and also prepare and serve the breakfast every day. So if you have any doubts, issue or just want some advice, we're available. We like to give guests space but we are available when needed.

Ewa and Davi were fantastic hosts. Their space is beautiful, simple and very calm. Ewa made an excellent and very fresh breakfast every morning. They go out of their way to provide thoughtful advice to their guests. Santa Tereza is a quiet and beautiful neighborhood, with much more character than many other parts of rio. Highly recommend.

We had an excellent stay, you made us feel so welcome. We would definitely recommend your place, excellent breakfast, juices, nice bathroom, hammocks and above all very friendly and helpful hosts :-). Thank you very much to you both, we really enjoyed meeting you. Ewa thanks also for guides to each area which really helped us navigate and see the variety Rio has to offer! There are also several rooms so if you are travelling with a small group and want separate rooms this would be a great option.

This was a amazing experience stay with Ewa at Rio. Great Host, great breakfast, great location in Santa Teresa. It's close to many famous restaurants and a big supermarket. 10 mins walk to metro and connect with beach easily. We stayed there for 9 nights and could say the breakfast itself was worth the stay. Eva and Davie are wonderful host. They gave us great advice and provided helpful guild book by area. During New Year's Eve, they even gave us a ride to subway station. Strongly recommend!!! You have to stay here to try the Great Breakfast!You have to stay here to experience the REAL Rio!

Ewa and Davi were the most wonderful hosts. When we arrived a lot later than expected on Friday night trying to figure out the address in the dark, Ewa came out onto the street and welcomed us. She offered us water and cake, we really felt right at home. The breakfast in the morning was everything we could have asked for - fresh juices, coffee, home made bread, cheeses, fruit, cereal, yogurt... amazing. Right away, Ewa was very friendly and extremely helpful with her advice. She has made special brochures for every neighbourhood in Rio worth visiting with personal recommendations of places to check out, eat at, etc. We ended up using them on daily basis and they sure came in handy. The house is a colonial jewel, bright,clean and spacious rooms with a touch of contemporary design. So pleasant to chill at, it must have been one of the reasons we had really long breakfasts. The location -Santa Teresa is a true find for anyone with appreciation of art and architecture. There is a myriad of local shops, bars and restaurants around that are really worth checking out, during the day and in the evening. We originally booked for five nights as we thought it'll be sufficient for Rio, but then we liked it so much we stayed five extra nights. Ewa and Davi's home and company was definitely part of the amazing vacation feel, and I'm really thankful to them. They truly care about their guests having a great time and leaving with the best impression and memories of their magnificent city.

Ewa's place in Santa Teresa is absolutely lovely! Even though we booked at the last minute and also had last minute changes to our check-in time, Davi and Ewa were extremely flexible. We were even greeted with juice and cake! Davi was extremely helpful with our day to day plans as well, helping us with taxis and giving us brochures for the different neighbourhoods in the city. Our short stay was full of unexpected obstacles, but Davi and this location made our visit extremely enjoyable. The breakfast itself is worth the rent, especially if you love cheese! I would highly recommend this place to everyone who wants a taste of Rio!

The room was fantastic with a comfortable bed and big windows. There is a fan in the room which was really useful and it is quiet at night. Ewa is the perfect host, really friendly and helpful. She has lots of information about Rio and Santa Teresa and even has little maps of interesting places that you can take with you as you explore. The breakfast is superb, and there is lots of it! We loved the area and definitely recommend it. There are loads of great restaurants and bars so there is always a nice atmosphere. Ewa's place is the perfect setting to explore this lovely part of the city. Highly recommended.

Rio, BrazilJoined in December 2013
Ewa User ProfileEwa is a superhost.

I moved from Berlin to Rio in 2012. Davi and me bought this big old house that needed a lot of work to be done. We renovated it completely and tried to keep it as original as possible. We did most of the work ourselves, so it took about 4 years to complete it. Since we had more space than we needed, we decided to give Airbnb a try and it's being a really good experience since. We have been lucky to have nice guests that share many common interests and have a fun time in the city.

I work also with photography (artistic, street) and some graphic design. Davi works as a carpenter building furniture. Most of the house's furniture was made by him. If guests share these (or other) interests, we are always open to show and hand out, what we know about brazilian culture, habits, photographers, artists and etc.
