Excelente estádia, ótima hospitalidade, tudo foi muito bom. O bairro é extremamente tranquilo e agradável, e a localização do apartamento é muito boa. Recomendo fortemente!
Micheline and Jorge are wonderful hosts. They made us feel comfortable and their style of hospitality is warm and relaxed. Their home is very welcoming and it was fun to explore the neighborhood. It easy to get anywhere from there. We highly recommend to anyone who wants to explore a little bit off the beaten path of Rio.
Micheline and Jorge are wonderful, warm-hearted people, always friendly and helpful. We had a great time in Rio styaing at their home. We enjoyed having great conversations with them and playing around with their two lovely dogs.
The location of their appartment is great - there are lots of restaurants, a grocery store and a major bus stop, only 3 minutes walking distance from their home.
The appartment is very quiet. On the back side of the building, there is a small rain forest where you can see monkeys in the morning and exotic birds flying around.
Micheline and Jorge always provided us with tips and helpful advices where to go.
We can 100% recommend to stay with them! They are wonderful hosts. Thank you Micheline and Jorge for making our stay such a memorable experience!
What a wonderful stay we had - thank you Micheline, Jorge, Poppy and Lucy. The room was great, our hosts, friendly and welcoming and the location marvelous for getting around to all Rio's amazing sights. We appreciate the breakfasts you prepared and shared with us -introducing us to some delicacies not previously encountered -
but especially enjoyed the evenings where we shared wine and got to know you both - two special people we will not forget. We look forward to remaining friends for many years to come - until our paths meet again - love and hugs - Gilly & Paul XXXX
Micheline & Jorge were amazing hosts. Our room was clean and ready when we got there. The rest of the house is kept neat and orderly as well. We wanted to immerse ourselves with the city and with the locals. A quick way to do that is by using the public transportation and Micheline was great at giving us directions - not once did we get lost!
I really liked the centric location of this place; +/- 20 minutes to copacabana, +/- 25 to pao de acucar, and +/- 30 to corcovado (all time frames once on the bus). There is also plenty of places to eat within a 15 minute walking radius.
I really enjoyed talking with them each evening, I hope they did too.
During our search for a place to stay in Rio, and up to the time of our arrival, Micheline was very responsive in addressing our inquiries. I would highly recommend this place for anyone planning on visiting Rio. Thanks for the memories Micheline and Jorge!

About the Host, Micheline & Jorge
First of all, I like people!
I am specialized in administration, management of processes of change in companies rendering services and in industries, particularly in administrative and information processes, and in processes related to production or rendering of services, and to the human factor, especially focusing on results, and the implementation of systems of quality management, as per ISO 9000:2000, showing my performance in administration with a strong profile as regards management of processes, the human factor and technology.
My professional experience has made me specialize in the creation and implementation of private companies (a profession known as Start-up Manager), both medium and large, located in Uruguay, Chile and Brazil. My education is based on administrative science, management of projects and implementation of systems of quality management. In addition, I have carried out consultancy work, management of projects and education/training for Uruguayan, French, German and Chilean NGO’s, between 1986 and 1990. In 1998 I was the founding director of Rio Cristal S.A., a company that renders services related to the human factor, based on information technology and the Internet, located in Montevideo/Uruguay.
Since 2002, I live in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
In 2006 I created BabelTeam ((website hidden)), a company that aims to help other companies, projects and individuals to communicate with the increasing market of consumers who use the Internet as a source of information to their decision-making processes.
I was born in Egypt and live in Brazil since 1958.
I have three kids (now grown up persons), two girls and a boy. And Jorge and I are married and also work together. I am the manager of our online marketing company. I do lots of work, besides this:
As I graduated in History and have a master in Education and another in Demographics and Social Research, I do research on Evidence Based Education Policies and write notes and abstracts with the state of art of subjects concerning education policies.
I am also a copywriter and translator. I love languages and how to communicate with people from all around the world. Since my undergratuated course I started translating from French (my mother tongue), Spanish and English. I currently work in themes such as Sociology, Economics, Social Sciences, Education, Statistics, Demography, Tourism & Cooking.
I love music (indeed I learn to play piano and flûte), books, hiking and being surrounded by nature.
We shall be happy to host you and make our best in order that you feel comfortable at our home.
