  • Katia was absolutely welcoming and charming as always. Maybe I love Rio because of dealing with Katia and staying in her apartment)
    Strongly recommend to rent her apartments for your stay in Rio.

    Response from Katia & Gardenia:

    Thank you for your kind words! It was a pleasure to host you and your family. You will be always welcome. Your mother is so sweet. Please thanks her again for watering my plants.

  • Katia and her mother are the greatest
    They welcomed us very well (pushing the experience to call a cab for us to go back to the airport at the end of our stay).
    The location of the apt. is 1st class (you cannot do better).
    I will definitely go back there if i ever fly to Rio again.
    5 stars experience

    Thank you so much!

  • We stayed at Katia's apartment for a whole month, while combining academic research and a family vacation with our young son. Although I had been in Brazil many times before, this was the best trip we've had, largely because of Katia. Not only is the apartment charming, comfortable, and with all the amenities a family might need (including a wonderful deck/terrace where we had most of our meals!), but Katia was the perfect host. She is one of the most resourceful people we've met --gave wonderful suggestions on everything from restaurants to daycares, from tour guides to off-the-beaten path places outside of Ipanema. From now on, whenever we go to Brazil we will try to stay at Katia's place and hope to continue a friendship with her as well! Highly, highly recommended!!!!

    Response from Katia & Gardenia:

    I was really sorry for the cancellation. My standard rate is US$185 for a 2 bdrs in the best street of Ipanema. During high
    season (summer) I keep the same rate except for special events as New Years, Carnival and now the World Cup. Unfortunately when I confirmed Linda' booking, I did not notice the rate was incorrect. I sent her a note advising about the correct rate which is US$250 during the World Cup. She decided to keep looking which is fine as there is still almost one year for the World Cup.

  • Katia was wonderful! She emailed us with detailed recommendations on restaurants, nightlife, shopping and tours before our trip which was extremely helpful. All of them that we did were spot on - especially the Le Ble Noir! She even put us in touch with a private tour guide who knows all about the city and was very reasonably priced. The flat is super close to the beach, the lake and all Ipanema has to offer. If you come to town I would highly recommended trying to book with Katia!!

  • My husband and I are just back from 4 nights in amazing Rio! We stayed in Katia's apartment in Ipanema and it was just perfect. She has lovely taste and decor and the apartment was very comfortable, not to mention located in the perfect spot. Ipanema was, to us, the nicest part of Rio to stay. Katia's apartment is perfectly situated a couple blocks from the beach and a couple blocks from the lagoa (lake), which was surprisingly fantastic and beautiful. We walked everywhere because nothing was far. It is surrounded by restaurants and shops, though many of the shops are pretty expensive. We felt very safe in the apartment and the neighborhood. The apartment has a lovely terrace we used every morning for breakfast. Katia, herself, was a great host. She gave us loads of information before we arrived. She met us when we arrived, told us about the city and getting around and was available to answer questions throughout our stay. We had towels and linens and anything we really needed for the stay. She was lovely and we were so grateful for her advice and for her lovely apartment. Thank you, Katia!!

    Response from Katia & Gardenia:

    Thank you, Mark. Hope to see you and Kay back in Rio sometime soon.

  • Charming - that's the right word. Not only for this wonderful and cosy apartment that makes you feel at home and save as soon as you enter but also for the wonderful host called Katia. She cared for us in a way as if we have been good friends for a long time already. She was always there to answer any kind of question we had and far beyond! And her apartment is a mirror of herself: expressing a great hospitality and love in every detail. And at the same time very functionally equipped with everything you need. Breakfast on the terrace is wonderful! The place is quiet and the location is perfect. Exactly between the best spot of Ipenema Beach and the Lagoon. And all kinds of shops, boutiques and trendy restaurants only some steps away. My husband and I could not imagine a better host and a better place to stay. Thank you Katia and your mother Gardênia!

    Response from Katia & Gardenia:

    Claudia querida, estou sem palavras. Obrigada e beijos. Volte sempre, Katia
    Thank you so much for your kind words. You and Klaus will be always welcome at my place.

  • Katia was very nice. She met us at the apartment, answered all of our questions, gave great recommendations, and even went out to dinner with my mother in law after we departed so she wouldn't have to dine alone!

My mother and I love to travel and get to know the local culture. We travel a lot together and we always rent apartments in the cities we visit to have a perspective of a resident. I - Katia - worked and lived in DC for almost 15 years. After several years with the World Bank, I decided to leave DC in 2010, return to Brazil and try something different. It has been great so far.... I loved my life, friends and work in DC so it was a difficult decision but a good one. My mother Gardenia owns some apartments and love to host foreigners visiting Rio and provide them with our insights of Rio. I am helping her with the coordination and reservations. It has been working so well that recently my cousin, aunt and a friend asked us to add their apts to our list.
