Ricardo and Rachel were great hosts. They were really helpfull, friendly.The appartment is beautiful, clean, well located, we felt at home immediatly. We would recommend it to everyone !!
Ricardo was a great host and I recommend his beautiful flat with a great view and very special atmosphere!
We loved staying here! The apartment is so unique and really nicely done up. The open wall really makes you feel like you are right in the heart of Rio. The balcony has a great view over the city and isn't overlooked so feels safe. We especially loved his record player and great selection of records. The apartment is really close to the heart of Leblon and Santa Theresa so be prepared for some steep hills to walk. Also, due to the location some taxi drivers seemed to struggle to find it. Ricardo lives in the same building and was very helpful with a late check in and arranged a taxi for us on check out. Overall it was an amazing place and we would definitely recommend it.
Ricardo's place is absolute heaven! It mostly resembles a covered roof-top terrace with bamboo and curtains for walls. The view is breathtaking, the neighborhood offers great restaurants and bars and Ricardo was extremely helpful and welcoming even though our plane was delayed and we arrived later than planned.
I highly recommend Ricardo's place!
This place is fantastic and we plan to return. Ricardo and his family were very welcoming and accommodating! The rooftop studio is just as described and even big enough to accommodate a family of four. It's breezy and cozy at the same time, has major buena onda as we say in Buenos Aires! And we absolutely loved Lapa and it's non-stop nightlife, samba clubs and Sat. street fair. The only thing I would warn about is Friday night is such a crazy scene down there, it was a bit hard to sleep since the noise reaches all the way up the hill!
Ricardos Appartement is really a great place with an incredible view over Rio. Riccardo and his wife were very friendly. We were glad, we could stay there and had a very good time. Only Wifi was a Little bit difficult.
Ricardo's place is wonderful. In a safe, central area with great views. I hope to be back in Rio and stay again in Ricardo's apartment.
