A unique accommodation experience awaits you in Rio de Janeiro!
Welcome to O Veleiro Bed and Breakfast
O Veleiro B&B is a small bed and breakfast or 'Cama e Café' in a large private home. We are located on a quiet forested hillside above Botafogo - neighbor to Copacabana - in the heart of Rio’s touristic zona sul or 'south zone'.
An oasis of green
Walking distance from Sugar Loaf or the Christ Statue train and minutes by public transport, taxi or Uber from Copacabana/ Ipanema beaches, we offer a welcome alternative to hotel accommodation in Rio de Janeiro. O Veleiro Bed and Breakfast is the perfect base for you to enjoy your dream vacation.
Wake up to the sounds of the forest…
The chatter of wild parrots, toucans and monkeys. Yet you’re right here in Rio! Minutes walk from the hustle and bustle of a major city just waiting to be explored!
Share ideas for your day’s adventures with other guests over breakfast around our big family table. We’ll offer some personalized tips!
Lay back and Relax!
Feel like hanging around the house for awhile with a good book? On hot summer days, gentle breezes bathe our ample poolside gardens, decks and bar.
Returning from sightseeing or a day at the beach, enjoy our plunge pool to cool off. As dusk settles over the mountains, cicadas and other tropical jungle sounds close out the day and city lights come twinkling on below us...
“O Veleiro Bed and Breakfast is a real haven. This is a lovely, quiet guesthouse with swimming pool, parrots in the garden, and views of Sugarloaf and Christ the Redeemer.”
