Was ein Glück das wir bei Evandro und Leo untergekommen sind! Ron ist toll aber es ist noch toller wenn man sicher, und schön wohnt. Evandro und Leo sind toll und kümmern sich um alles was möglich ist- du hast eine frage ? sie haben die Antwort... wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt und würden jederzeit wieder kommen! Die Räume sind genau wie auf den Bildern .. alle ist sauber und total zum wohlfühlen.
I had a wonderful stay with Evandro. He was very welcoming and helpful during my stay - from helping to organize a driver to pick me up at the airport, to letting me check-in super early, having fresh fruit, coffee, toast for breakfast, and providing great recommendations on how to get around the city and things to check out. The place is very nice, with a great outdoor common area with a view of the city and is very clean and comfortable. It's very conveniently located, close to lots of bus routes to get around, within walking distance to the metro, and very close to samba bars in Lapa. Santa Teresa is wonderful - with great restaurants and little shops. The common bathroom was also clean, but is shared by up to six people, so that could potentially be challenging. I would definitely stay here again and recommend it!
My wife and I spent four nights staying with Evandro and Leo. They were both super nice blokes and made us feel very welcome and comfortable. Evandro went out of his way to make sure that we were comfortable with knowing our way around the local neighbourhood, and also helped with information on the best way to visit different parts of the City. The area itself was perfectly safe. The house is located 5 minutes uphill from one of the main streets in Lapa, 10 minutes from the Lapa bars, and 10 minutes downhill from the excellent restaurants in Santa Teresa. There's good bus connections to the City nearby. The house itself was great.. very clean, comfortable and spacious. The wi-fi worked very well. The only issue we had was with the bathroom plumbing (major 3am leak one day, no water another day, and no hot water on a third day) ... there were workmen busy during the days working hard to sort all of this out, so shouldn't be a problem for anyone else. Would point out that there's contention for the use of the bathroom - up to six people for the single toilet that's available to use, so bear in-mind the need for some occasional patience. Breakfast - coffee, bread, fruit and eggs were made available every day for a DIY.
So - we would recommend staying with Evandro and Leo, and would happily stay with them again.
Evandro é um host atencioso e simpático. Nos deu boas informações para aproveitar a cidade e nos recebeu com muita dedicação. A gata Ágata é uma atração à parte, brincou comigo todas a manhãs 3 A casa é aconchegante e tranquila, com uma linda varanda e uma excelente coleção de livros. Fica bem localizada no bairro: é fácil chegar aos centros de Santa Tereza e da Lapa, além de pegar ônibus para ir para as praias. A cozinha é bem equipada, o wi-fi funciona (website hidden) com certeza voltaria a ficar nesse lugar!
Evandro har en super lejlighed centralt lokeret i Santa Teresa tæt ved Lapa. Gå afstand til centrum. Og et rimelig safe område. Derudover er Evandro ekstremt hjælpsom og en super vært som er klar til at hjælpe med alt - han lod os endda blive til kl 19.00 dagen efter hvor vi skulle flyve
Das schöne Haus von Evandro und Leo liegt wunderbar in den Hügeln von Santa Tereza, mit einer tollen Veranda und nicht weit von Lapa mit Bars und Läden und Bussen in alle Richtungen von Rio. Unser Aufenthalt war super und Evandro hat sich um alles total nett gekümmert. Genau wie beschrieben und nächstes Mal kommen wir bestimmt wieder...
