I came to São Paulo for one weekend with a friend and we stayed at Verucio's place. His apartment is clean, nice and decorated with style. Verucio welcomes you arms open, willing to help and to share if you want to. Hope we'll meet again in the future. To be recommended!
Verucio is a very warm host and he made sure I got my bearings as soon as I arrived in São Paulo. He showed me all the cool places to go and helped me a lot with buses, cultural attractions and understanding the ways of the city and it's people.
I cannot think of a better location for his apartment, mid-way between the old city center and Paulista Avenue. Indeed, I could walk or take a bus anywhere in the city from the apartment. The area is very lively (Rua Augusta is full of bars, restaurants, cinemas and wonderful people watching, a little bit on the rough edge, as far as aesthetics are concerned, but definitely not violent, with regards to safety).
All in all, I had a blast staying with Verucio and would go back there anytime!
Verúcio é um excelente anfitrião. Desde o primeiro dia sempre esteve disposto a ajudar e a dar dicas sobre São Paulo. Muito educado e amigável, tem a casa exactamente como as fotos mostram. O apartamento é muito espaçoso e luminoso, todas as divisões possuem janelas, além de uma varanda com uma rede. O quarto é muito espaçoso e de frente para a rua. A tv a cabo e a internet wireless funcionam muito bem. Ainda, existe uma empregada que limpa a casa a cada 15 dias, sem nenhum custo adicional para os hóspedes. O apartamento é muito bem localizado, perto dos principais pontos de interesse de SP, além de estar a menos de 10 min. de caminhada do Shoping Frei Caneca (fica na mesma rua) onde existem várias lojas e um supermercado. Do apartamento até meu local de trabalho, na Faria Lima, em Pinheiros, levo entre 15 a 20 minutos de ônibus, o que em SP é um privilégio. Por ser perto da Rua da Consolação e da Av. 9 de Julho, é simples e fácil se movimentar em SP. Recomendo com toda a confiança e segurança e, por isso, estendi minha estadia por mais tempo.
Verucio is a lovely man, who lives in lovely apartment in a great area. Stay with him if you can!
All I need say is that I was planning to stay here for one month and ended up staying for two!
Without a doubt, Verucio is the reason why I will be using Airbnb in the future. Although my stay with him was brief, it was profoundly memorable. Verucio was gracious and welcoming. He took time out of his schedule to show me around and made my time in Sao Paulo feel like I lived there for years. His place is a stunning bohemian apartment that's incredibly quiet for its central location. You are a short cab ride or walk away from museums, squares, galleries, fantastic restaurants, and incredible nightlife. Stay with Verucio and see Sao Paulo as you would when visiting a friend. For me Verucio is a friend I am very glad to have made.
I stayed at Verucio's place for 6 nights. My stay at Verucio's was amazing! His apartment is centrally located so I can walk everywhere. Verucio knows the city very well, and constantly gave me tips about the city. He is well connected, and knows everyone, and I do mean everyone! I had the chance to meet some of his friends, and they are all wonderful people!
His place is safe, clean and nice. He made me feel like I was welcomed at his home. My flight arrived at 00:30, and I didn't get to his place till 1:30 am. He waited for me to arrive, and treated me with delicious dessert.
Being a gringo visiting SP, he helped me out a lot, and I can't say thank you enough to him. I really loved meeting him, and feel like I gain a friend! Can't say enough good things about him and his place. Highly recommended!
Passamos uma excelente semana no apartamento de Verucio. Bem localizado, limpo e aconchegante. Como anfitrião Verucio é ótimo, amavel e prestativo. Gostamos muito das conversas e especialmente do fantástico jantar da ultima noite! Muito bom e super recomendável!
The reservation was canceled 6 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Verúcio is an excellent host -- originally from the northeast of Brazil, but having fallen in love with SP years ago. He is knowledgeable about public transportation, important spots in the city, security, and much more. His English is good, and he is always happy to discuss culture, politics, music, and Brazil in general.
The place is exactly as the photos describe -- clean, spacious, carefully curated, and brightly lit. The bed is wide and very comfortable. The shower is always hot, and you feel like you have a lot of privacy when you need it. Verúcio, a talented designer, is always changing around the layout of his place, adding new furniture or lights that only make the place better with time. The kitchen is fully equipped for cooking, and Verúcio will often invite you to coffee or tea.
As to the location of the neighborhood, it is very centrally located, with the ability to walk to Avenida Paulista, the Jardins area, Bela Vista, and downtown. Buses are close by, and there is a taxi stand right outside. The street has good cafes and restaurants within walking distance.
This is a great place to stay for a longer time as well. I stayed with Verúcio during my exchange semester, and it always felt like home.
