I had a fantastic one month stay at Lili's home in Belo Horizonte! The accommodations are as advertised , and are a good value. I stayed in a roomy and clean private one bedroom which was airy and bright ,and shared a bathroom with one person (Lily's son Stefano). As others have mentioned ,there is a guest lounge and kitchen provided, as well as a very nice outdoor space with plenty of chairs, tables and shade available.
The house is located in a very nice and quiet area if the city, which I found ideal. There is ample bus service to shopping and downtown, for me it was nice to have the access to these areas at times, but also be able to stay/sleep away in a home away from the crowds and and noise. The location very close to the lake is also very nice. Finally the best part of the trip was staying with Lily and her wonderful family. It was nice to enjoy many nice conversations in the evening , along with homemade dinners ( including wonderful homemade pizza , tuna , homemade cheesecake etc). I also enjoyed many local excursions to festivals,sightseeing , shopping, etc ,with our great driver /friend Janio- thank you! Finally the family surprised myself and our son ( who was training with base team Cruzeiro nearby) with a wonderful farewell dinner. I look forward to visiting again, thank you Lily!!
Lily is very welcoming and eager to please. We stayed in a room with separate entrance from the main house, which was basic, but was as expected. Our room did not have its own internal lockable door, however the building was lockable by a front and street-facing door. Insect repellant was essential for mosquitoes as not all windows were glassed in or with screens, also mattresses were not inner coil - future guests should check the mattress (and room) they will be getting.
Having a lightswitch to the external light for the rooms we stayed in would have been a nice touch as one night it was on which helped with key entry and socialising, however it was out with no way for us to turn on for the other two nights.
It is a good location for walking to Estadio Mineirão, with a bus stop around the corner for a 30-40min ride to the city.
If I was to return to Belo Horizonte for an event at Estadio Mineirão I would stop in to see Lily!
My stay at Lilly's home was excellent. She was a fantastic host who went above and beyond to ensure that I was comfortable and happy all of the time. Upon arrival at the airport one of Lilly's friends was on hand to meet and greet me and provide transport to her home. I was offered a choice of room and shown around her large home. Lilly's son is head chef and was on hand to provide meals upon request.
I chose Lilly's house due to its proximity to the football stadium as I was visiting for the 2014 World Cup. A bus is available Into the city and takes approx 30 minutes to the centre.
I wouldn't hesitate to stay with Lilly again in the future. Thanks for making my stay relaxing and enjoyable.
There are two sides to this review: the best of our stay at Lily's place were the other guests. It's a big place and there were about 30+ other people staying there for the World Cup, so we got to hang out with good people from the US, Perú, Australia, New Zealand, Venezuela, and of course Brazil. The food they offer was really good and there was a good, friendly atmosphere. Lily's friends who picked us up at the airport were as friendly as they were helpful, and I couldn't speak higher of them. While the neighbourhood wasn't particularly alive, there was a little football bar nearby that was fun. Now, there were a couple of downsides. Firstly, if you're not a fan of spiders and roosters waking you up around 5 am, you might not like this place. We found (or rather, they found us) 3 spiders in our bedroom and 2 in the bathroom, along with their spiderwebs. Secondly, and most importantly, we are currently having a bit of a situation with Lily. We forgot an iPod Nano in our bedroom and we wrote her as soon as we noticed (i.e., a couple of hours after checking out, June 18,) apologizing for our mistake and asking her if she could send it back (all expenses paid by us, obviously.) Unfortunately, almost a full month has gone by and she says she still hasn't found time to send it, while also refusing to give us any approximate dates of any kind. Although I understand that forgetting the iPod was our responsibility, sending back forgotten objects to their owners is standard practice and I don't think you could reasonably say that in 20+ days you haven't had time to do it. I just wish there was more good will on her side to get this done, especially having in mind that she doesn't work alone: there is a team of people working at her place. Still, we are currently in touch with her trying to work things out. In short, here you might be able to find wonderful people from all walks of life and very helpful staff; but in regards to the sensibility of the host, I think for us the jury is still out.
Regarding to the iPod/music player that Mr. José Miguel forgot in my house, it makes no sense that he thinks I've had intended to keep that object, since I confirmed via AirBnB chat that I had found it. I just asked him to wait until it was possible for me to send him his belonging. Actually, I think the best solution to the problem (and to his hurry to have his device back) would have been hiring (on his part, of course, since it was him who forgot) a company that could collect it here at home and send to his address. I think it would have made things easier, since there are several carriers that collect objects to be dispatched. And so he, Jose Miguel, would have solved the issue without my help, through the internet, even though I have not helped because of my ABSOLUTE LACK OF TIME, since I run a house full of guests for the World Cup and had no helpers for household chores. Let me explain: On the very day in which José Miguel checked out, my only one maid (DANIELLE, TEMPORARILY hired to help me during the World Cup) had fallen ill, and since then she no longer came to work. I was alone to meet 30 other guests who were still around. I had to clean daily all 15 rooms and shared spaces, 10 bathrooms, 4 kitchens, 2 laundry rooms and 3 TV rooms of this huge house. I think it is clear that Mr. Jose Miguel is judging people who he barely had time to meet (he was here for only two nights). Those whom he saw here and supposed to be my employees, apart from DANIELLE, are:1) JOEL - self-employed painter I hired to paint the entire house inside and out. As time was short for all this great task (the house is really huge), until the arrival of my guests to the World Cup, Joel had only managed to finish painting the internal parts of the house, and so remained working on to finalize the outer areas. Joel is from Northeast (Brazilian region that is very needy), he came from the countryside to work in the capital as standalone, making his own hours. He charged me for the full works of painting and is temporarily living in this house, until he can rent his own apartment. The fact that he is temporarily occupying one of the rooms sometimes means that he can extend his own working hours in order to complete his standalone service faster. It must have been in one of those times that Jose Miguel saw him working beyond the time of a regular working journey.2) JOAQUIM - standalone plumber that came here to fix a leakage occurred in one of the bathrooms.3) JOÃO - standalone mason who towed the bathroom wall damaged by such leakage. He is also my tenant, he occupies a small house built in the bottom of my space of 1000m² with his wife LUZIA. The housewife Luzia, seeing the huge flow of guests, saw in it a chance to work, by herself, performing some chores in exchange for some tips that many guests offered by gratitude and generosity. So, José Miguel may have seen her sometimes in the house, by her own free will.MARLLONY - international cuisine chef, he works nights at a prestigious Japanese restaurant near the house. He has been my tenant for over a year. He rents a room in my home, which is not a hostel, just a big house where I live with my family and rent rooms to supplement my low wage as a teacher in a Brazilian public school. To complement what he earns as an employee at night in that Japanese restaurant, Marllony decided to cook breakfast and lunch for my guests, partnering with my own son Stefano, student of gastronomy, who cooked afternoon snacks, dinner and appetizers. I lent free of charge to both of them the largest kitchen of the house, so they could serve meals and charge for it, but didn't give me any money for that. All I wanted was that all my guests were well catered for, nothing more. I have not had any profit over the breakfasts and lunches that MARLLONY prepared and sold here. I do not know about the Japanese restaurant where he is a regular employee (it's too expensive for me, I'm a poorly paid teacher in a Brazilian public school), but my guest Allen Moore (American who has been here for ten days) was there for dinner one time with his family and complimented it. By the way, speaking about this lovely American family (Allen Moore with his wife and teenage sons), I kindly ask everyone to read the review they left on my AirBnB page, with a full feedback of praise and sincere compliments, because they are righteous people, unlike José Miguel, who went public to slander me (and all this because of a music player that he forgot here and I have not had time to send to him...). As José Miguel knows, Allen Moore and his family occupied the room next to him, and shared with him the same bathroom. No spiders were found by any of the members of the Moore family (not in the room nor in the bathroom or anywhere in the house) and no rooster seems to have bothered them. They were here for 10 days (2 of them simultaneously with José Miguel), being friendly with me and everyone. Like José Miguel, Allen Moore's family and most of the other 30 guests also interacted with my assistant Danielle and all those that were here doing some service, but only José Miguel drew unfounded conclusions, relying solely on his erroneous observations. I would also ask everyone to read the review posted by guest Matthew Harris, who held the same room that José Miguel stayed at, having done his check in on the same day that Jose Miguel checked-out.
I stayed at Lily's place for a week. She has been very kind, efficient and helpful. Her place is kind of in the middle of nowhere, however well connected by bus. Be aware that there is not going to be breakfast and that shops are far away. Bring protection against mosquitos. There are a few places nearby where you can eat. During my stay there were major works in progress, so dust and noise all day long. The windowless bathroom is shared with at least two other permanent guests and was not cleaned once during my stay. The bed was comfortable, wifi fast, fridge and washing machine available. There is a real community of people living and working there, I have met 10 people, all very nice and friendly.
I apologize for dust and noise from the works. It's because I'm building new rooms with better bathrooms that will be finished in a few days.
About breakfast, yes we serve, but it is charged separately, as reported in advance on this site. We also serve lunch and dinner if guest prefer homemade food. If not, there are good restaurants close in around here.
Our neighborhood is quiet and bucolic, a safe place to relax in peace, away from the stress of the big city, but quickly connected by several bus lines, taxis, bicycles or our private cars, always available to our guests.
Our big family (relatives, friends and employees) apologizes for any inconvenience happened. I'm so sorry for not having said goodbye to you before your trip, cause I had to leave urgently that morning. Adriano had made a small trip and could not keep up with you, but I hope Janio had been kind and helpful. We all feel honored to have hosted you and we guarantee that next time, when the house works are all ready, you will be better served by us.
Thanks for your kindness and understanding.
Hospitalidade e cordialidade marcaram nossa estadia na casa da Eulina. Recomendamos essa maravilhosa estadia.
If you want a local and yet international feel, this place is the place to go. I stayed here for a week and I was able to meet people from different countries and different parts of Brazil. The house is beautiful, big and in the calm relaxing area of town called Pampulha. There is easy access to the town with regular buses passing and restaurants and supermarkets nearby. Nearby to Pampulha airport and easy access to Confins airport. Warm and friendly people and a great location for someone new to this big city. I will definitely stay there again.
