Interaction with Guests
I lived in sharing houses for nearly 6 years in London and 3 years in Japan, so I understand how is it like to share our lives with people with different backgrounds.
I'm pretty laid back kind of person and simply adore traveling and travelers, specially when they come to Sao Paulo. So I want to make your stay as pleasant as possible!
Higienópolis is one of the nicest areas of São Paulo. It feels that you're not in such a huge city, since it's a neighbourhood you can stroll through wooded streets while get your groceries done or have a beer at a 'boteco' (bar) .
Or even read a book at a cool little park nearby (Parque Buenos Aires)!...
...after a while, you realize you are less than 3 km from the old, hectic city centre !
The neighbourhood is lively , but pretty calm on Sundays, with all amenities closeby: pharmacy, supermarkets, street market on Thursdays and Sundays.
Plenty of bars & restaurants next to the University Mackenzie, which is less than 5 min's walk from the flat.
- around 8' walk to metrô Santa Cecília (Red line)
- around 10' walk to metrô República (Red and Yellow line)
Main spots that connects you to the public transport:
- Metrô Santa Cecília (red line)
- Rua da Consolação (bus connection North-South and other connections, such as Vila Madalena, Av.Paulista)
- Praça da República (where metrô República connects to Yellow line, which takes you to Avenida Paulista within one stop)
- Avenida Angélica (buses to Vila Madalena and Av.Paulista)
- Avenida São João (busses connection East-West)
TO/FROM GUARULHOS AIRPORT :
The best way is to get the coach "Airport Bus" , for R$ 36,00 one way.
The starting/ending stop is at PRAÇA DA REPÚBLICA .
You can get to the flat either by taxi (less than 10 reais) or 10' walk (it's doable if you only bring a backpack).
By TAXI, it's a fixed price 110 reais one way.
At Guarulhos Arrival terminal, you can see the taxi stand right after the automatic door that leads to the airport parking lot.
Other Things to Note
- Check in at 14:00
- Check out at 12:00
If you need to check in earlier (or check out later) I I´m pretty flexible, as long as there isn´t a new guest checking in on the same day :)
In case of a busy period, if you need an early check in, I can take your luggage and leave it in the living room, no problem!
If you want I can show you the nearer coffee shop (with wifi!) if you feel like. ; )
..thank you for understanding!
- Most important: If you have friends in town, or you make new friends, etc, please do not bring anyone at home until we discuss any visit beforehand;
- I prefer to keep shoes at the entrance of the living room and wear slippers at home so it'll keep the house cleaner. (but will be flexible if you're not used to it).
- The building´s admin. kindly asks to avoid loud music before 10 am and after 10 pm.
- Anything in the house that gets broken, you will have to replace it by an identical item of the same brand (well...accidents happen!).
- In case you lose the key, please make a copy before checking out;
- In order to keep the flat tidy, please keep the toilet and kitchen clean.
After cooking, sometimes we feel lazy to wash dishes right away, but I'd appreciate that it'll be cleaned by the morning after.
- There's a cleaner who comes on Saturdays. (please see Cleaning fee)
- Use of landline phone is not included, but you can receive calls. If you need to make a call and it's an emergency please let me know how long was the call and to what number.
I don't like to be too strict, but these are simple rules for house sharing, I'm pretty flexible to chat about them when you arrive. :)
Letícia foi uma anfitriã maravilhosa! Fez com que eu me sentisse à vontade e bem recebida na sua casa, mesmo sem ela estar presente. Estava sempre disponível para dar dicas e responder qualquer dúvida que eu tinha. O apartamento fica muito bem localizado, a uns 10 minutos da estação de metrô Santa Cecília e, na minha opinião, está em um dos bairros mais agradáveis de SP. Há diversas opções de restaurantes, bares, supermercados e até um shopping nas redondezas. Gostei bastante da minha estadia e recomendo a todos!
As is Letícia's 'trademark' as an airbnb host, she made me feel at home from the very first minute I entered the apartment. The place is always meticulous, and it's the little things that give this experience a special touch. I enjoyed staying here tremendously, and will certainly come back!
Mais uma vez a minha estadia no apartamento da Letícia foi ótima!! O apartamento é aconchegante, organizado e bem localizado. A Letícia faz questão de nos deixar bem acomodados, é sempre muito atenciosa e simpática.
A minha hospedagem com a Letícia foi melhor que poderia imaginar.
Ela realmente nos faz se senti em casa, e tem uma enorme capacidade de dar atenção, mesmo quando (website hidden) chegar na casa, fiquei encantada com os bilhetinhos que estavam distribuídos em diversos lugares com dicas super atenciosas, divertidas e práticas.
Gostei muito do carinho especial que ela teve em por um postal da minha cidade na porta para indicar o meu quarto!
Algumas vezes cheguei em casa e tinha a ótima surpresa de que ela havia estado lá e deixara algo para mim, seja um novo bilhetinho ou algo de lanche.
Foram 37 dias que fiquei em sua casa e onde tudo transcorreu muito bem.
Todas minhas expectativas de estar em um bom apartamento funcional e muito perto de tudo, foram super atendidas. A localização para mim foi a melhor possível. Como gosto de fotografar e fui a São Paulo para estudar fotografia, sempre caminhava para o Centro para fazer saídas fotográficas. Além de fotógrafa também sou arquiteta e fiquei fascinada com a proximidade com o Centro Antigo de São Paulo onde estive várias vezes a pé. O metrô é outra grande facilidade da localização do apartamento.
O quarto é ótimo, grande e com um armário muito bom. Exatamente como na foto!
Meu muito obrigada Letícia e um grande beijo!
Letícia foi muito amável, prestativa e com seus bilhetinhos espalhados pela casa me fez sentir como se estivesse hospedada na casa de uma amiga muito simpática a atenciosa.
O apartamento é exatamente como as fotos, bem organizado, confortável e com ótimo astral.
A localização é ótima, próximo ao supermercado, padaria, shopping e estação de (website hidden) certeza eu recomendo esse apartamento e certamente ficarei hospedada nas próximas vezes que retornar a São Paulo.
I stayed at Leticia's for six days during the tail end of the World Cup. She's an excellent and amiable host - as she made sure to spend time with me to show me around to some interesting spots in Sao Paulo and also oriented me on how to get around the city. She's a seasoned traveler with lots of stories, she also knows her city very well and gave lots of good tips!
The apartment is in a good neighbourhood - a few blocks away from 2 train stations and in a pretty central location with restaurants, groceries, and drug stores nearby. Her place is small but very tidy, homey, and welcoming. It was winter time and it was a bit cold so she provided a thick blanket.
I would definitely stay with Leticia again next time I visit Sao Paulo. :)
I decided to go to the FIFA World Cup Brazil last minute. Though airbnb I found Leticia in São Paulo, and instantly decided to stay at her place. She looked familiar as she is Brazilian Japanese and nice person. My inspiration was right! Her apartment is cozy and clean, walking distance from two subway stations of different lines. Leticia is always willing to help, sometimes worries too much^_^;.
She served breakfast for me, and asked me to help myself anything to eat in the kitchens It was too short just 2 days, so I would like to come back to stay at hers longer period.
I am a Japanese/Brazilian, excited about meeting people who are visiting São Paulo - be it for leisure, work, studies or simply live in this lively , ecstatic , buzzing megalopolis!
I enjoy spending time with my family, going to the movies, art exhibitions and out with friends and new friends!
I lived in Japan and England. I also had a month's stay in India for meditation and another in France to learn a bit of the language.
Inbetween, I've been lived in São Paulo (it's been around 13 years here). :D

Happy travels, airbnb guests & hosts!
