About the Homestay
I live in a cozy apartment in Rio de Janeiro. The neighborhood is called Recreio, it has the most pristine beaches in the city.
I am a retired teacher with no children on my own. My husband has a job that requires him to be on the most time. On my spare time I do the paintings, read books, and take care of my little garden.
The apartment is located on the seventh floor in a small residential building. It has a kitchen plus the service area, a living room, a bedroom with main in suite, a single bedroom with main suite as well, plus a social bathroom and the nice veranda facing a tree lined street. The apartment is fully furnished with all necessary appliances for cooking plus the lineans. I have cable tv and wifi plus I do not mind to share my bike for long strolls to the beach. The apartment furnishings are practical including wifi cable television.
We are not far from the center of Rio de Janeiro. Just forty five minutes by subway.
I am a quiet person who loves gardening, doing my artwork, long walks in the beach, reading novels and photographing nature. I try my best with vegetarian meals, but once awhile
I like to try on our traditional Brazilian recipes. There are no pets in the house! You are all welcome!
