Other Things to Note
Small dog lives in maids quarters (old beagle), very silent and totally unobtrusive.
No smoking. No pets. No outside guests allowed. No parties or visitors. No noise after 11 pm. We appreciate a respectful living situation and expect you to leave the apartment as you found it. If you lose or break something, kindly advise .
We are always happy to help you during your São Paulo stay and to recommend great places for you to enjoy.
We are flexible with check-in and check-out times but usually check-in will be at 12h00 and check-out at noon. We can be flexible if there's no one staying before/after you but we need to know in advance.
It's not a entire apartment. This should be listed as 2 private rooms. As it says in the description, there's a lady living in the apartment and the kitchen it's not accessible (the access is restricted). Not even to make a coffee. Of course, you can ask her for a coffee -if she is there-.
Living with a person inside watching all your moves -seriously-, going into your room while you are not there and restricting the access to the kitchen, ruins the experience of renting an apartment.
We tried to turn on the T.V. and she started to say that we broke the television, screaming in portuguese (we just pressed Audio/Video instead of T.V.). Internet works fine in the rooms but not in the living room. I'd rather go to a real hotel.
The photos are very accurate. The rooms are very nice, clean and tidy. The apartment it's beautiful.
This would be fine if it would be listed this as a Private room. It's not an entire apartment.
I am sorry you were disappointed with the experience of renting our apartment. The caretaker has been working with us for over 35 years and makes a point of cleaning the bedrooms and bathrooms to leave everything nice and clean for the guests. You rented the apartment one day before arriving and could have easily cancelled, as I sent you all the house rules as soon as possible. The TV is complicated and I will write instructions, many guests try to use the remote control and we have had to call service people more times than I care to remember ....I will see to it that the instructions are written down. Thanks for sharing your opinion, it would have been very nice if you had written to me in private as well. As you saw, I put a very nice review for you. Bests, Vivian
Out stay in Sao Paulo was a respite from the hustle and bustle of both SP and international travel...Vivian was gracious, and so responsive to our request, especially as we needed to stay an extra day. The apartment was lovely, extraordinarily clean, located in the Itaim district (great view!) and close to parks and quiet streets to walk on - a plus in this busy city. While SP was the "bump" in our trip -- we had two sick travelers, another with a spained ankle, and huge World Cup ticket drama - Vivian's apartment provided us with a peaceful respite to knit ourselves back together again. Housekeeper Dilma became one of our favorite people in Brazil. With any travel, it's the people who matter, and she won our hearts.
Our stay at Vivian's apartment was perfect! It's in a beautiful location that was very safe. The apartment had a live in maid/cook named Dilma. She made us some amazing meals and we truly valued her companionship during our stay.
A positive not found in other places was that the apartment had great, fast WiFi. Our two other apartments in Brazil had horrible WiFi.
I highly recommend this place for anyone needing an apartment in São Paulo. Thank you Vivian!
If you are looking to relax in a modern furnished flat in the middle of São Paulo, this is your best place.
I spent three nights in this lovely flat. It's located in the business area in the middle of the city. It's easy to access (by car or by public transportation) and surrounded by a variety of cafes, restaurants, gardens and shopping centers.
I highly recommend this place
Great apartment and location! Vivian is a great host, she helped us at everytime with any issue. We spent a great time in Sao Paulo, hope to be back again!
Vivian was very friendly and helpful, she speaks great English, and was very quick to help with a small internet issue we had. The apartment was just as advertised, and the neighborhood felt like a comfortable place. There was security for the building, and the caretaker lives in the next room so we had comfort and assistance.
