The Space

We are committed to offering great value, so if you read this listing and is not convinced it is great value at the end, please make us an offer and we will consider it.

Cool apartment in one of the best neighbourhoods of Sao Paulo, Itaim Bibi. Very close to Clube Pinheiros, Hebraica and Shopping Iguatemi. Well connected by buses, cabs on the door step, and parking available inside the building if you have a car.

This apartment is currently the studio of an artist, so it has a cool, laid back feel to it. It has a bathroom, a shower room, and a separate sink/toilet, so you will most likely not have to share.

The apartment has three bedrooms of different sizes, all of them fitting double size beds. The bedroom featured in this listing is a large single room. We have also a double room facing the front of the building, and a large double room facing the back of the building (large enough for three people) listed separately. All rooms have plenty of storage, and the lighting is a special feature, set up by the artist who works here.

There is also a great office space, if you are coming to Sao Paulo to work or study.

Nobody lives here, except me, the owner. My girlfriend is occasionally here too. I travels a lot given that I have a second home in London, UK, so you are most likely going to have privacy and be on your own unless we have other guests.

The keys will be left either in the reception of the building or with the painter who works here. He's got the most fabulous sense of humour you will be glad you met him.

The building is safe with 24 hours reception and it has a nice view of Faria Lima Avenue, one of the main avenues in town. Sao Paulo's night life is booming and you will be a walking distance from some of the best bars and restaurants in town.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Joao is very nice host. He is very polite, clean, tidy, respectful and keen to help his guests. His place is fantastic. There is a cleaner twice a week that leaves the place spotless.
    The property is very central and safe, with a porter 24 hours a day. It is quite busy during the day, and rather calm during the night, although you have several bars and high profile restaurants nearby. You know when you are late when the helicopters start to fly around.
    Within ten minutes by taxi you can reach the neighborhoods of Pinheiros and Vila Madalena, where there are lots of bars and clubs. Avenida Paulista is quite close by taxi as well. Also you have several bus lines that can take you whenever you want.
    There are supermarkets and pharmacies in a walking distance as well.
    In short, it was a very nice experience. I definitely recommend this place.

  • What can I say! When staying in João's apartment you are not just given a room you are given the full Sao Paulo experience! I was shown immense hospitality from being invited to have lunch with his mother to practise my Portuguese to visiting his brothers art studio after expressing an interest. This was my first experience of using airbnb and I was shown hospitality above and beyond of what I expected! In S.P you will not find a better located/equipped apartment in which to explore the city! I wish the best of luck to João with his future endeavours!

  • Joao's apartment was a good fit for me considering the value and location. The pictures are an accurate representation of how the apartment looks and feels. The apartment is kept clean and a maid comes multiple times per week. Overall I recommend this apartment for people looking to live in itaim

  • João is an incredible person (email hidden), specially if you love arts and the cultural scene in São Paulo. He´s the right host to show you around, giving you nice tips about it. Moreover, I did like the effort that João does to keep everyone happy and comfortable in the house. He welcomes suggestions to improve your stay.
    The apartment is really well located too!

  • Fantastic stay at Joao's, definitely exceeding my expectations. He is an inspiring host, although he (email hidden) he's always up to share a smile or a thought with you. Joao is definitely one of a kind. You can't have a better pick to stay in Sao Paulo, I really felt home. Look no further!

  • Joao is a fabulous person and an excellent host. He has a good head on his shoulder and has a good intuition and can take hints when one is busy and tired or if one needs a little guidance in a daunting/overwhelming city. Yes, I know a rare quality for a man :)

    Joao is constantly updating and improving his apartment and truly wants a wonderful experience for each of his guests.

    I will be checking back next year to see how the accommodations have evolved and look forward to seeing Joao again!

  • The best value in São Paulo. Great localization, one block away from Amaro street (hot spot for bars and restaurants), walking distance to Iguatemi Mall.

    The apartment has a lot of space and really looks like an artist loft :-)

    Joao (email hidden), always asking if I needed anything. I will definitely consider this apartment for my next staying in Sao Paulo.

Sotheby's Institute of Art
I have many passions but career wise most of my path has been in the art world. I love the business side of the arts and I like it internationally. I worked for an arts magazine in Paris, had a gallery in Mayfair (London) and now am the founding partner of an art consultancy business in Sao Paulo. I also travel regularly to fairs and biennials around the world. As a host, Airbnb allows me welcome people from all over the world which keeps me connected to different beautiful realities. I make new friends, have company, make work contacts, hear different opinions, and get the opportunity to show aspects of Sao Paulo to visitors who would perhaps not discover it otherwise. As a guest, Airbnb is an opportunity to connect to locals and learn how to get around faster, feel part of the culture, experience different types of comfort, hospitality, architecture and interior design, and of course get a better deal than I would in a hotel. I speak English, French and Portuguese and enjoy this site a lot. Hopefully my reviews, references, photos and videos will give you a good impression of who I am. Warm welcome.
