This big room (21 m2) has a private bathroom and a big varanda with an wonderful view of city center. It is a very unique room specially located under a mango tree which birds and small monkeys are used to visit.

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.

Guest access


Reservation includes breakfast, wi-fi and laundry use. Scrambled eggs, fresh fruits, handmade cakes, yogurt and jellys, natural fruit juices and smoothies are served under a carambola (star fruit) tree in the backyard. Nice way to begin your day in Rio.

Our prices on special dates (carnival, New eve, World Cup, etc.) are higher. Prices depend on dates and number of days of booking. Please, ask me about prices before booking this room.

We had a fantastic stay at Canto Da Carambola, Miro was a wonderful host and went out of his way to help us with transport, restaurants etc. Wonderful fresh breakfasts. Sorry we had to leave Rio before the end of the Olympics! Thank you!

Staying with elmiro and sergio was like staying at a friends house. In one word an unforgettable experience. They were incredibly helpful in making our stay as comfortable as possible and made sure we had the best time during carnaval. The breakfast is delicious, the view is incredible and the location perfect if you want to get away from the crowdy center. I strongly recommend staying here if you like to feel at home away from home. We loved our stay and will definitely come back! Muito obrigada! (Tip if you are from the Netherlands: bring stroopwafels!)

La casa de Elmiro es un sueño. LLena de detalles amorosos, igual que sus dueños. Pasamos una semana genial junto a mis hermanas!!! El desayuno servido en la terraza, rodeadas de vegetación tropical y hermosas vistas. Nuestro cuarto muy amplio, el baño perfecto. Toallas y sábanas impecables y siempre limpias. Todo en la casa tiene un sentido estético y un cariño muy particular, hace la experiencia más rica para los huéspedes sensibles al arte y a la cultura en general. El barrio, ideal para los que buscan tranquilidad, arte urbano, refugio del turismo standard. Elmiro tuvo gestos con nosotras memorables, cómo llevarnos al sambódromo y recogernos luego. Quedamos muy agradecidas y recomendamos Canto da Carambola para disfrutar Río, sin dudarlo!!! Ya extrañamos a las mascotas de la casa, sobre todo a Olavo =) Volveremos o irán nuestros amigos. Gracias por todo, fue un placer!

Primero que todo, desde el momento que vi las fotos del lugar me pareció un lugar agradable; una vez que llegamos al ser recibidos por Miro y Sergio de una forma tan amable sabíamos que era la elección perfecta un buen lugar, linda vista de Lapa, Santa Teresa un lugar con construcciones que datan del año 1856... un lugar con mucha historia. Una atención de lujo con mucha alegría y mucho respeto estamos muito agradecidos, esperamos poder volver algún día.... Recomiendo 100%..
