About this listing
The room is very cosy, there's a double bed, closet, air-conditioning, fan, cable tv and wifi. The bathroom is very small. And the sitting area is a very nice balcony. The kitchen is complete and the guest will have free access. A shelf in the fridge will be reserved to the guest. But since it's a common area, it has to be left clean as it was before use.
The total area is approximately 45 m2.
Since I work at home, I try to keep my privacy not to get distracted. Guests will have access only to the area that's shown in the pictures. They are not allowed inside my apartment unless they are invited.
Interaction with Guests
I will be present on arrival and departure. The guest can also get in touch with me by ringing the doorbell in case I am home or through text message or phone. On arrival I explain the neighborhood, and the way they can get around Rio. We'll also meet in the kitchen since it's a common area.
I speak fluent english, french and have some knowledge of spanish.
In case I'm not in Rio, my roommate will replace me, which is rare but it can happen.
The flat is located in Jardim Botânico District, at the South Zone of Rio de Janeiro , one block away from the Bothanical Gardens , 2 blocks from the Lagoon , and a 30 min walk to Ipanema Beach .
The district is very charming with lots of bars, restaurants, supermarkets, bakeries banks and transportation 24hs . There' s a lot of nature around and many artists have chosen Jardim Botânico to have their studios.
It's very easy to get around from here. There are buses to everywhere in Rio passing a block away. Since it's a busy street there are cabs 24 hours a day. If you like to walk, the flat is 2 blocks from a beautiful lagoon. Leblon and Ipanema beach are 30 minute walk from here, around the lagoon.
Due to previous embarrassment I am obliged to list the following rules:
• Since the kitchen is of common use, we ask you to keep it clean and use only for cooking and storing food. No meeting or reunion shall be held in the kitchen as for other guests to feel comfortable.
• No fried food allowed.
• It is strongly forbidden to bring other people into the flat.
• The use of intimate clothes or underwear only is not allowed in the kitchen.
• Tenant shall be responsible for any fines that may be incurred due to violation of any laws, the convention or internal regulations of the building in which the apartment is located. Payment of the fine shall be made, as soon as we are notified as to the motive and value of said fine.
• If you get into trouble with the police involving illegal behavior, we will not be able to assist you in any way. The owner of the flat has no responsibility to help you in such a case.
