About the Homestay
I am an easy going person who likes to meet people from all over the world. I've been hosting people for over 9 years and have also traveled to many countries. I lived in Japan for 3 years and in England for 7 years. At the moment, my husband Sid and I work the Official Rio Tour guides in Rio.
Our spacious and comfortable Santa Teresa hotel is located in the heart of the city. You may have the tranquility and magic of Santa Teresa and the glorious Lapa night life, within 5 minutes walk from here.

How do I book?
Contact the host to check their availability and ask them any questions you have about staying with them. Once the host confirms they’re available for your dates, you can complete your booking.
When do I pay?
Once a host confirms they're available, you can go ahead and pay the 15% booking fee (maximum of 199 $£€ for longer term bookings) using a choice of payment methods: Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Maestro, Laser, JCB & PayPal (not available in certain countries). 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.
