About the Homestay
I came to Brazil for the first time at 18 in 1993 and worked at a small airport in Maceio in the North of Brazil. I learned Portuguese out of sheer necessity and has lived through the massive changes Rio has seen in the last 20 years. Currently I live in a beautiful home in historic Santa Teresa and welcome all those looking for a home and a friend in this beautiful city.

You then pay your host on arrival or as stated by your host on their profile and agreed by you on booking. Please be cautious if a host requests advance payment if its not included on their profile. Our hosts have been advised that if they wish to request advance payment they must make this explicit in their profile. We do not recommend the use of Money gram or Western Union.
