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 a 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!
***P.S. - IMPORTANT: From August/15 I will not be living in the flat so I won´t be around to help you out everyday. But I come on Sundays if necessary! :)
And I'm renting my room to a student , and she will stay until September/15
So , if you don´t mind sharing with another flatmate but me, this is the place for you! :)
Vila Buarque/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.

I was lucky to call Letícias place home for a 7-nights-stay being in town for a conference. Even though Letícia was out of town for family reasons - which she let me know before confirming my booking! - she had everything prepared perfectly for me. Letícia even left some breakfast items for me and had prepared some sticky notes for me to easily find my way around the apartment. She was closely in touch during my entire stay and answered all questions I had rapidly. Letícia even called reception several times and made sure I got a parcel that eventually just arrived right before I had to leave.
Letícia's apartment is as the pictures show and her ad explains. It is cozy and comfortable and provides everything you need.
Letícia is an extremely friendly, welcoming and helpful host. There is nothing she could have done better!

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.
About the Host, Letícia
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
