Paula and Marilia were very quick to respond to an urgent request and to prepare the place with an extremly short notice.
The appartment is very nice and close to everything we needed. I recommend the place.
Nice apartment in a good area.Close to the lake and quite close to Leblon beach. A lot of buses and taxi but the metro station are quite far by foot. It will change soon because they are constructing one metro station in front of the apartment. The white decoration is nice and you have everything that you need in the apartment
Paula was great and the location was awesome, only ten minutes walk to the beach and within blocks of some fun restaurants and bars.
Location was great, short walk to the beach, we felt safe and there is a lot of ships, cafes etc close to the flat. all the communication before the trip was great too. However..... The wifi did not work and there was no hot/worm water in the shower. I emailed Paula during our stay and never heard form her. Aside from that everything was as described. Also, you have pick up the keys from her moms apt. And drop them off there after your stay so it's not very convenient as you have to take a cab there. Too far too walk.
The house was very dirty, we took picture of it and send to her, and asked her to clean. But she never contact us and later on she refused to come over and to clean. So we had to stay in a very dirty house.
When we left she told airbnb that we made her apartment dirty and broke things, but luckily we had the pictures with the dates on it and we had the email that we wrote her saying that their are things broken.
So we proved her wrong and we got our deposit back. so don't stay at her place!
Fantastic apartment, lovely and clean in the perfect location. Paula and her mother were extremely accomodating with information beforehand and her mother was nearby if we had any problems - which we didn't. Would definitely come back and stay here again.
O apartamento da Paula está localizado numa região nobre do Rio de Janeiro, no bairro do Leblon, próximo de vários restaurantes e bistrôs muito charmosos (Av. Ataufo de Paiva e suas transversais), inclusive perto do Shopping Leblon e do Rio Design. Também está muito próximo do Hotel Marina Pálace, da orla do Leblon e de Ipanema, que se pode ir caminhando pelo calçadão e desfrutando da linda paisagem da orla carioca. O apartamento é muito amplo, limpo, organizado. O ar condicionado funciona muito bem. Além de tudo isso, a Paula foi super atenciosa durante a fase de reserva do apartamento, respondendo aos emails de forma rápida e sempre prestativa. Em resumo, mais uma vez minha estadia no Rio foi perfeita. Recomendo este apartamento a qualquer viajante que queira desfrutar um pouco da Cidade Maravilhosa!
