After my daughter went to college in the US, I decided to be a homestay host, because I love having people around. I had nothing but great time with my hosts since then! I live in a 4 bedroom apartment, between the three main beaches of Rio, Ipanema, Arpoador and Copacabana. The famous Sunday Hippie Fair (best souvenir market in Rio) is one block away. We are a cosmopolitan home, I travel a lot, have been to many countries and have friends and family in the US, Europe and Uruguay. I speak French, Spanish and English and love exchanging ideas and experiences. Our neighborhood has beaches, bars, restaurants, cinemas, theaters and much more.
I am a fan of bikes and have an extra one for the guests. They can bike along the beaches, around the lake or even bike to Sugar Loaf, the Botanical Garden and other nice places.There are bike lanes that take us everywhere, a real invitation to know the city and exercise at the same time. But if you prefer the subway, it's right around the block. And taxis or Ubers are available day and night and not expensive at all. Welcome!

There are many bars, restaurants, cinemas and theaters nearby and the subway is just half a block away. Taxis and buses pass by at any time of day or night.
There's a parking spot in the building for an extra fee.

Regras da casa
Smoking is not allowed inside the apartment. I like animals, but they are not allowed in the house. The kitchen is all you can use the fridge. Just do not forget to wash the dishes after you use them. There is a cleaning lady once a week, but we ask that the common areas are always tidy.
Não é permitido fumar.
I stayed in an other apartment which was only a few streets away. The location is just perfect as you're right between Copacabana beach and Ipanema beach. I met Isabella only on my last day but she was so kind and nice. Definitely recommend staying here! :)
Isabella is amazing! She showed me the city, planned trips and knows so much about the city! Extended my stay because it was much better than expected.
Very good place to stay in Rio de Janeiro, because it´s located central near by the beaches of Copacabana and Ipanema and Isabella is really expieriencend in Hosting and always has good advices where to go and what to do in this City. I enjoyed much my Holiday staying at her´s!
Fantastic stay with Isabella. Would recommend anyone who is passing through Rio to stay in her lovely home. She gives you a very strong sense of community, and is always willing to go the extra mile to make your trip more pleasant. Just like many others that had stayed at Isabella's residences, I had extended my stay for another 4 days simply because of her welcoming gestures and fantastic hospitality.
Although Isabella was not there when we stayed the house is very comfortable and is centrally located right between both beaches Ipanema and Copacabana. We had full use of the kitchen which is important for us. The room was clean and has plenty of closet space. Her husband and Deborah very helpful in what to do and where to find attractions around town. I highly recommend staying with Isabella. Thanks for everything and sorry we did not get to meet you.
I stayed at Isabella's home for five weeks. She helped me getting around in this beautiful city and was always available if I needed help. Her roomates were easy-going and interesting conversational partners.
Public transportation can be reached within minutes form Isabellas apartment. Within a less than 10-minute walk you can get to the beach, either Ipanema or Copacabana. Bars, shops, reastaurants and fitness centers are close-by and some of them are open 24/7. It is really a great place to stay at.
Je suis resté 6 nuits. La petite chambre simple est sans fenêtre mais dispose de sa douche privative. C'est aussi plus calme, le quartier l'est, de toutes façons. L'immeuble est ancien mais Isabella permet d'utiliser la cuisine et espaces communs. J'ai pu aussi utiliser le vtt rustique, bien pratique. La localisation est parfaite, avec ascenseur. Wifi impeccable. Mais surtout.... ce qui fait l'authenticité du lieu sont l'enthousiasme et le dynamisme communicatif d'Isabella (qui parle français couramment)... je ne saurais comment la remercier des moments de découvertes et partages de sa ville préférée... C'est assurément l'endroit où je reviendrais et vous conseille de ne pas rater. Si vous avez cette chance.... Préférez au moins 4 ou 5 jours.
Stayed with Isabella in her cosy flat right in the middle of Copanema just minutes to the beaches by foot. Suprisingly quiet room. Isabella is a wonderful host and supplied me with a lot of useful advice for Rio. There is also a bike available, which is a great way to get around the neighboring areas, I took it though Ipanema and Leblon to the botanical garden and back along the Lagoa.
I loved everything about this place. The location, the host, the fellow guests, the pictures on the wall, even the doorman :)
I would recommend it to anybody and everybody and I would definitely come back myself.
What a great host!! She just gives you the key and off you go!! Anything you want or need she is right there, she is a busy lady but she's there for anything! I want to Cabo frio and Buzios which is 3/4 hours away for 4 fats and she told me to not take my big bag so she as stored it for me when I get back! The massive bonus is you turn left out of the house and 4 minutes straight down the st is Ipanema and right from the house 4 mins again is copacabana, brilliant!!!! Metro is 5 mins away so easy to find and really clean and safe!!!! I'm back next week where she will help me book flight to foz iguassu
