Personalized Stays Imbued with True Carioca Characteristic

Goitaca means ‘Nomad’ in the native language of Tupi Guarani. We intended to craft locally-rooted, nicely-designed, experience-driven, remote-work-ready, and fully-equipped residences to provide a ‘temporary home’ for the modern traveler.

We focused on creating a new vision of hospitality that bridges the gap between impersonal, luxurious hotel experiences and intimate, personalized homestays. We articulate this dream by marrying the comfort of a hotel with the intimacy and privacy of a home.

What our Guests are saying

      It was a very nice and pleasant stay, Samuel was a great host. Very attentive to all of our needs. We would definitely stay here again. Great places to eat in walking distance and just a block away from the beach. We highly recommend this location.

    thumb Adam

      Excellent location at the heart of Ipanema. The apt is a PH located on the 5th floor, the elevator goes up to the 4th floor. Samuel is a great host, very nice, and very reactive. We were a group of 12 and the apt. accommodated all of us comfortably with each bedroom having its own bathroom. We arranged to have breakfast served every morning and it was an excellent service with a delicious spread.

    Overall a positive experience in the heart of Rio.

    thumb Nora

      Rare gem. This place is everything our family needed and more. Great location! So close to the beach, markets, shops, restaurants, great botecos/bars really made our trip easy and memorable. We felt safe and at home the whole 10 days we were here. Samuel was spectacular on communication and checked on us every day. Highly recommend this place for friends or family trip.

    thumb Fernanda

      This is an amazing place to stay. The location is great and close to everything. The elevator just so happened to down the weekend which was the only downfall. Having to scale 4 flights of stairs was difficult.
