We felt exceptionally welcomed by Jaqueline. She was so sweet, helpful, easygoing, and even speaks great English. She was invaluable in so many ways - restaurant, beach and shopping suggestions, helping us book a bus trip, helping with our laundry (she has a great washing machine and convenient drying rack.) Her neighborhood is perfectly located near to lovely beaches and shopping. We never felt unsafe. The bed was super comfy and we had our own bathroom. She provided the perfect mix of privacy and delightful company. My husband and I can't recommend her highly enough! We would stay with her again in a heartbeat!
We had such a wonderful stay with Jaqueline! Her apartment is in the best location, very safe and close to everything. The room was just what we needed with air conditioning and clean linens. We also had our own bathroom, which was very nice. Jaqueline is extremely helpful and such a sweet host. We really enjoyed chatting with her, and very much appreciated all of her Rio tips and suggestions! We hope to come back to Rio again!
Jacqueline is a very nice host. She was very helpful in finding nice spots in the city. Her apartment is located in a good area of Rio. Close to the beach and to the main shopping and restaurant/bar area in Leblon. The room is clean and comfortable and the overall feeling in the apartment is very good. She was very accommodating arranging arrival and departure.
Rio is a very nice city and the Jaqueline's apartment is ideally located to discover this wonderful city - near the Leblond and Ipanema beaches (the best beaches from my point of view) and closed to the Shopping Leblond :-).
Moreover Jaqueline is very nice, she helped me during my stay by giving me some good advices and facilitated my travel back to the airport.
Thank you Jaqueline for those 3 days. I keep very good memories of my stay.
Jaqueline was an absolutely fantastic hostess. She was out of town when I arrived, and made sure that there was somebody there to meet me with the key and welcome me to the apartment. When I needed help with travel logistics, she sat with me and helped me search for flights and buses. She was extremely pleasant and helpful, and went out of her way to make me feel completely at home. Her apartment is in a great location, right across from shopping, restaurants, etc, and it was very clean and nice. Highly recommended.
The apartment is as advised here in the airBnB website. Located in a very nice are of Rio, safe and quiet. The aprtment is very clean, well equipped, and the room very confortable. Jaqueline is a very nice host, attentive to your needs and always available to help you.
I can definitely recomend to stay here.
This is the second time I stayed at Jaqueline's beautiful home, and like the first time, I absolutely enjoyed every minute of my stay. Jaqueline has become a friend, and it was great to see her again. I love her apartment, which is really nice, clean, safe, and in an excellent location in the center of Leblon, close to the beach, the lagoon, the botanical garden, shopping, and night life. Jaqueline gave me great tips of where to go out (Rua Dias Ferreira is amazing), where to do yoga, how to get to places...I can highly recommend staying with her, you are guaranteed a great time and a home away from home.
About the Host, Jaqueline
I am an artist and I love to travel. I've been back in my hometown of Rio for 5 years after living in New York City for 6 years. My studio is in Lapa a cool old neighborhood.
I Love books, music, going to the beach... lately I have been enjoying cooking too... Since I have been back from NY, and because I made so many friends from all over the world, I decided to organize my house in a way I could always have it open to receive them here. I know many aspects of Rio and all the different places us cariocas like to go. I will be glad to share them with you.
