NEW: UPDATED GUIDEBOOK with the highlights of the neighborhood.
The flat is 80 square meters (860 sq feet), extremely bright and spacious. Feel free to relax in the hammock while enjoying a glass of wine or reading a book. The walls are filled with street art from all over the world and nice photographs. My place is very charming ( good lighting) and spacious. I love plants so get ready to see lots of green hanging from the ceiling.
The flat has WI-FI (10 MG), 29 inch LED T.V with more than 60 channels ( TLC, sports channel, National Geographic, CNN..), land line phone, laundry room, full equipped kitchen (microwave, electric kettle, coffe maker, toaster), clutter room in the back ( perfect for your super size luggage, golf clubs, the african drums you bought in Bahia...). There's an extra toilet in the back.
The flat is 4 km away from Ibirapuera Park, which is the biggest urban park in São Paulo. it's our Central Park. It has a large area for leisure, jogging and walking, a big lake. The Museum of Modern Art is located inside the park, as well as the Music Hall.
The flat is close to São Judas subway station (10 min walk ), bus stops, pharmacies, supermarkets (including a Wal Mart), restaurants, bakeries and banks.
How about some yoga outdoors? Grab a towel and head to the park for a free lesson on Saturday mornings.
On Sundays, there is a Bike Lane connecting Avenida Indianópolis ( one parallel to Av. Ceci, where I am located) to Ibirapuera Park, Villa Lobos Park, Avenida Paulista and downtown. It's a great opportunity for you to get to know the city ( I can provide you info on renting bikes).
There's a direct bus from my home to Congonhas Airport, taxis are also very easy to catch. If you are coming from the International Airport, I will be glad to give you options to reach the apartment according to your budget ( the international airport is located 25 km from the city).
It takes about 25 minutes from my place to Avenida Paulista ( the heart of the city) by subway. Every guest receives a FGP "Fabi's Guest Package" which includes: Subway map, city map, neighborhood map with local businesses and a TIME OUT Magazine - São Paulo edition - in English.
Every Thursday there's a a big farmer's market right in front of the building. This is a great opportunity to get fresh fruits, vegetables, ridiculously fresh fish, tapioca, coconut juice, pastel, sugar cane juice, flowers, spices, herbs... Tip: bargaining is mandatory and expected in the farmer's market.
The building has doormen 24/7, surveillance cameras, a parking space for each apartment and two elevators. The environment is very friendly, quiet and family orientated.
I guarantee you will have a great experience here.

Everything was great. Fabi gave me all the help and informations I needed. Nice area, safe and quiet. Thanks for having me I will be back.
O apartamento da Fabi é muito aconchegante, tem um mega toque artístico e é bem localizado. Gostei da locação, não faltou nada. A única coisa chata é que o apartamento do lado estava em reforma e havia muito barulho. De resto nota 10. Valeu Fabi!
We had a fantastic experience staying Fabi's flat. Fabi was there to meet us on our chek-in date and we were pleased to meet her; she is an excellent host... who also speaks really good English. The apartment is well furnished and has a comfortable artistic feel that totally enhanced our stay in Sao Paulo. The building is safe and the Doormen are some of the nicest people you will ever meet! The hosts description of the apartment, surrounding area and amenities are exact, with a few extra bonuses that you will be happy to discover. The farmer's market in front of the building (on Thursday) was perfect for a couple of fresh home cooked meals on our trip. We had a car during our trip (necessary for some of thing we wanted to do), but don't worry because there is a Metro station a short walk from the flat. There's secure inside parking and the outside area was safe for parking too, when we were in and out during the day.
We highly recommend Fabi's flat for your stay in Sao Paulo!
Estar no apartamento da Fabi foi como estar numa extensão da minha própria casa. É completo, seguro muito bem localizado. Tudo que eu precisava estava a minha disposição. Os porteiros muito atenciosos e prestativos. Não conheci a Fabi pessoalmente, mas me deu toda atenção e suporte que precisei. Caminhei ate padaria, e pode ir a pé ate a estação do metro. Voltarei com certeza!
I want to tell you about Fabi's (website hidden) is spacious and well laid out and the shower is fantastic. Great sound system and TV for chilling. The doormen / security are super friendly guys. There is even an englis speaking taxi driver living in building! Location is great - close to Conghonas, Jardim Botanico for walks in nature and Ibirpuera park where I went numerous times. is lost of fun - modern art museum and african art museum plus great people watching. Moema District is nearby for great restaurants and nightlife- try out Bourbon Street .All in all I would highly recommend Fabi's place- she is great person - friendly - speaks excellent english and knows where everything is located - the best concierge I have met yet on airbnb. This is your Sia Paulo hang out! Bart
Obrigado pela acolhida, Fabiana.
Detalhes fazem (sempre) a diferença.
Had a very nice stay at fabi's apartment. It's a spacious and well decorated apartment, colorful like the owner ! Fabi is super friendly, spontaneous with excellent english. She was very helpful, she recommended me to language school, fisio, people...thanks again !
See you again, SP, Paris, Asia...
Fabi's apartment is quite beautiful and well kept. Quite neighbourhood makes a peaceful stay in a bustling city. It's very safe with 24x7 security. There's a local farmer's market every Thursday which is great if you like to cook your own meal or want to stock with fruits during your stay. Fabi is a lovely host. She is quite prompt in replying on any queries. She is a very good photographer and art lover. Expect to be enchanted with lovely pictures on her walls. And plants. And artefacts. And the hammock. It's absolutely recommended :)
Fabi is a highly recommended host because of her good manners, experience and outstanding English skills. From the very beginning she took time from her busy schedule to respond my emails about the apartment and entertainment in Sao Paulo. Then when she met us for the first time all our doubts were quickly gone and felt very comfortable at her presence. The location of the apartment is convenient (Walmart is 5-10 minutes away) and very close to everything else if you ride the metro or taxi cars. Finally, we are very grateful to Fabi and hope to meet her again in the future.
Die Wohnung von Fabi liegt ganz in der Nähe vom Stadtflughafen
Congonhas - das erspart einem bei der Anreise lange Bus- oder Taxifahrt durch die Stadt.
Die Wohnung entspricht der Beschreibung von Fabi - ich habe Fabi leider nicht persönlich kennengelernt - aber Sie hat sich trotz Ihrer Abwesenheit per email - und Ihrer ganz lieben Mutter - toll um alles was den Aufenthalt anging gekümmert.
Das Haus wird tags als nachts von einem "Doormen" betreut der sich - -soweit es Eure portugiesisch Kenntnisse möglich machen um alles kümmert. Das Haus ist sicher und ruhig - insoweit man Sao Paulo überhaupt als ruhig bezeichnen kann :-)
In der Strasse gibt es mehrere kleine Geschäfte - die für den Alltag alles anbieten. Des weiteren ist eine der besten Bäckereien von Sao Paulo ansässig (ca. 1 km entfernt).
Donnerstags ist ein toller in der ganzen Strasse - es gibt frisches Obst - kulinarische Köstlichkeiten - macht Spaß den Vormittag dort zu verbringen.
