About the Homestay
Me and my boyfriend Pedro live in a nice apartment on the 9th floor of an apartment building in Catete. It's a great central area, with only 4 Metro stations to Copacabana and right around the corner of beautiful Santa Teresa and party hub Lapa. The Metro station Catete is a 5 minute walk away, the bus stop in direction beaches is in front of the house, the bus stop with direction Lapa/ Centro/ Santa Teresa is a 3 minute walk down the street. I am German and Pedro is Brazilian - so there is an array of languages in our home. Apart from German and Portugese we also speak English and Spanish.

Maria and Pedro were great hosts. Location and access to their apartment was good. Thanks for having us, we had a great time.
I had a really great time in Rio at Maria and Pedro's place. Both are really friendly, helpful, funny and warm-hearted. Their apartment is very close to the metro and I always felt safe. If one day, I come back to Rio I would like to stay at their place again.
