My husband and I have both travelled individually and separately around the world for work and play. Of all of the places that we have stayed, this spot impressed and exceeded all of our expectations.

The home is gorgeous (we loved the bungalow!) and Elana is so helpful in providing information about Rio and all that the city has to offer (and how to navigate well) The history and care put into the restored engineers home is the crown of staying at this place, on top of the great location near the Christ the Redeemer train, historical neighborhoods and buses to the beach or city center. The breakfast was delicious and the evenings comfortable and quiet. It is an off the beaten Rio track delight.

We then spent the week down at the beach and really are so happy to have had time at Casa Caminho do Corcovodo. If you want a unique perspective on the city with local history and flavor, not to mention incredible care for your stay by Diogo and Elena, this is the respite you are looking for on your visit!! Just be sure to motivate yourself I get out and about from this idyllic gem and into the bustling city!!

We stayed here last year. Diogo picked us up from the airport, showing us sites along the way. This place is near the station to get up to Christo. A short walk down the street and you are right there, where there are plenty of taxis waiting. This area is lovely and I felt completely safe walking round this area. Helena provides the most amazing breakfast, and the views over this city are incredible. If you are happy to stay away from the beach this place is perfect. The host are so genuine and welcoming. The room we stayed in was clean and perfect for us. It was nice to see the monkeys in the trees, one even tried to come into the house! A lovely place to stay in the best city in the world.
Wifi was available but in the main lobby (we stayed in June 2014).

Wonderful place. We spent three nights at the end of March 2015. A true gem in the heart of Rio, in the middle of the green with a very nice view. Very close to the Corcovado train. Helena is great and very friendly. Room and bathroom were super nice and clean. Super breakfasts. There's also a detached little house for rent, which comes at slightly higher price, but next time we'll definitely try it! Highly recommended from all points of view!!

We had the pleasure of staying here for two nights. We echo previous comments about the hospitality of the owner, Helena. She made her house available for both early checkin and late departure. We have two suggestions for future guests....1. Print off a Google map of the immediate area so a taxi will know where to go, and 2. Bring earplugs in case the many dogs of the neighborhood start barking at each other. We would definitely return if we were in Rio again.

This beautiful safe place with it's fantastic view of some parts of Rio, from where you can get everywhere easily, this cosy somehow intimate hotel with an impressing jungle-garden around, this gorgeous breakfasttable every morning with its generous variety of Brasilian fruit and top of it the host of this property, an ever so helpful, amiable and charming lady - this is what we loved.
