A praia de Ipioca é simplesmente um paraíso, águas cristalinas, mornas e uma tranquilidade generosa. Nas proximidades há: padaria, mercadinho, restaurante, pizzaria que podem ser acessados sem carro e possuem o básico.
Nosso anfitrião foi super atencioso e esteve sempre pronto a nos ajudar, deixou a casa prontíssima para nossa chegada, limpa e arrejada. Entre alguns pedidos ele providenciou uma churrasqueira, às pressas, para que pudéssemos fazer um churrasquinho.
A casa é super ventilada, não tivemos problema com mofo ou cheiros fortes, espaçosa e possui uma vista deslumbrante. Éramos 5 adultos e 3 crianças e passamos uma excelente temporada com a certeza de um dia voltar.
I strongly recommend not rent it. The house doesn’t accomplish at all the minimum requirements for a reasonable stay. Once arrived we found the kitchen doesn’t have a microwave and not even an oven, the wash machine was broken and not even a toilet paper in the bathrooms! Then by night we found not only that the roof was broken and the rain came in, but also the water from air conditioner falls towards inside the house too, near the stairs where my wife slipped away by night! But this real nightmare wasn’t finish yet! During all the night the curtains (placed outside) have been banging against the window’s frame and although we have been battling against the tropical ocean’s winds at 03 AM we have been unable to fix them. End of story? No! because it was also impossible to endure by night the extremely noisy air conditioners in all the rooms!
The house is among three others but is the only one without maintenance. The piled sand beside the door’s “garden” prevents you to walk to the beach; if you want to go there then you must jump the fence!
Conclusion: Impossible to cook and sleep, so we moved the day after to the hotel beside. We then contacted the Italian owner who apologized for all these inconvenient and promised us to refund us U$S 200 (we paid U$S 750), but of course he never didn’t send it….. even so that once we left he rented again to some local people! Once he told me that he was going to need 25 days to find a Western Union for this miserable transfer.
Of course no TV or Wi-Fi but this is just an anecdote.
The worst? the owner is a lier and we spent U$S 750 for 1 night
The best? forget about the house

First of all, the overall condition of the house are ABSOLUTELY adequate for a reasonable stay (the reviews of the precious’s guests, uploaded less than 1 month ago, can confirm it). Regarding the other points I would like to reply in a orderly fashion:
• The house stands exactly in front of the ocean, the curtains are an additional protection for the veranda, they could be easily taken off avoiding any kind of noise during windy days
• I didn't apologize for all the inconvenience, I did but just for the oven. I offered a refund of 200UDS more than enough for a dinner and a lunch in a top restaurant in Maceio for 4 people. The guy who is taking care of the house had bought a new oven the day after the inconvenience. I think it was a fair refund and I just asked for some time due to job's commitment (I’ve been abroad in the last 6 weeks)
• You could have asked the refund via airbnb within 24h, I would have gave you back the whole sum. I don’t cheat people, and I 1000USD do not change my financial situation
•I always give my personal number (with whatsapp) to all the guest in order to be reachable 24/7 to accomplish all the guest’s requests. I prefer a negative review than being blackmailed
•The house has no wi-fi and television (as you can see on the description) I really can’t understand why should you complain about it. You already knew it when you reserved the house
•Once again about the money if you ever pass by Milan, I will personally refund all the money plus a dinner
•I understand you expected a luxury house with a low price. Good luck for you future trips.
Ficamos 7 dias nessa casa com esta vista maravilhosa para a praia de Ipioca, a praia está há alguns passos da casa, casa essa que possui uma estrutura muito boa comportando até 8 pessoas com conforto! O anfitrião Gianluca deixou tudo organizado, casa limpa, com roupas de cama, eletrodomésticos, e até o nosso transporte no aeroporto. Parabéns! Foi uma experiência maravilhosa!
Muy buena experiencia. La casa es exactamente como aparece en las fotos. Está frente al mar.
El lugar es muy tranquilo y queda a unos 25 minutos del centro de Maceio, lo que la hace ideal para descansar. Para movilizarse hay buses que pasan muy seguido.
Experiencia recomendable totalmente y muy atenta atención de Gianluca y su equipo.
