“Best views of Rio in the most amazing house”

The place of Marjon is a great refuge in the busy city of Rio. Arriving there gives a feeling of being in the forest but with beautiful view on hillside houses and of course Christ the Redeemer. Also the monkeys that come and say hello in the morning add to the jungle feel. Don’t leave any fruits out on the terrace though… the monkeys will grab those.

On both the floors of the little house you can relax and chill out with amazing views.

Marjon is the most generous host, with an intimate knowledge of Rio and actually Brazil and whole Latin America. We had great and inspiring talks with her about Brazilian culture.

Santa Teresa and downtown Rio are a quick and easy bus ride away. We advice you to take these buses a lot. It is safe and since you travel with all the locals it makes you feel less of a tourist. Taxis are very easy to find everywhere and also make the trip easy and comfortable.

Liked best: The house as a whole. the 2 floors and just hanging out with the views (and the monkeys!)
Liked least: The kitchen could have better tools. but we hardly used them so it was ok

Indeed a very nice and comfortable apartment with a stunning view on Christ the Redeemer. Unbelievable to wake up en look at that statue. A tasteful decorated apartment in Santa Teresa Rio de Janeiro where you can totally feel relaxed. Good bed, good shower. Transportation is good, you can use the bus (very friendly pricing :-)) or taxi. Marjon, the owner and host is a very charming en loving person, very helpfull. So if you have questions or want some local tips, just ask her! She's very much willing to help you. The neighbourhood Santa Teresa gives you the feeling of a small village. I liked it very much. I would very much recommend this place to everyone who wants to enjoy Rio, but does not want to stay in the very crowded touristic areas.

“Beuatiful apartment with Christ himself looking over your shoulder!!”

The Arty house is a stunning place in Sta. Teresa with beautiful views. Marjon, the owner of the place makes you feel very welcome and has all the information you need to have a perfect stay in Rio. The apartment is fully equiped so you can choose to eat out but the kitchen is perfecly usefull to make a dinner yourself.

We stayed unfortunately only 4 nights, but we fell totally in love with the place, the owner and the pets , we could have stayed for ever!!

Highly recommended
