We enjoyed our stay in Rio immensely, not only because of the city but especially because of the wonderful accommodation and the incredible hospitality that we found in Miro's and Sergio's home. The house with the backyard and gardens is the most wonderful and relaxing place you can imagine. Miro and Sergio spend so much attention to details in decorating... More

Stayed at Canto da Carambola for 7 days during the World Cup with three other friends - we loved it! We stayed in a room accommodating four people. The room was spacious, comfortable and oozing with character (just like the rest of the B&B!). The facilities were extremely clean and the shower was hot with good water pressure. Our room... More

There is something poetic about sitting in my beautiful room at Canto da Carambola, this last evening of my second stay here.

Was here alone and a bit disorientated due to the fact that it was my first time in Rio and that in that occasion was travelling as a lone girl. Miro and Sergio's place was exactly the location I could feel as if I was home, and even better due to the charming artistic and vintage decorations and the luxurious... More

I stayed at Miro and Sergio's place for 3 nights and it was perfect! The house is beautifully decorated with art (some of it made by Sergio!) and retro artifacts, it's all just very very pretty! Also the outside space looks very nice and has stunning views. Santa Teresa is a peaceful and quiet neighborhood, I felt safe all the... More

Canto da Carambola is an amazing place to stay. Miro and Sergio are very kind and they give you such a warm welcome, you feel directly at home. The colonial house is beautiful, it has a very nice garden/ terrace with a stunning view on the city between the beatiful trees and plants, and the rooms are lovely and spacy.... More
