This was our first time in Rio and we loved Evandro and Leo's flat. It's amazingly located, in between two very fun areas with lots of restaurants and bars. It's also less than a 5 min walk to the main buses. The flat itself is huge - the photos don't do it justice! The rooms are big, clean and nice. The terrace is definitely the star attraction and we spent lots of time there chilling out, chatting to Evandro and fellow guests, hanging out with the two adorable cats or else just looking out at the great view. The only small things I'd say is that when all the rooms are full, the flat and particularly the bathroom got a bit dirty - but I think that was a reflection of our fellow guests and certainly not the hosts who cleaned quite often - and the shower isn't great. But everything else more than makes up for this. We were especially grateful to Evandro for waking up at the crack of dawn to receive us and for being lovely, friendly and welcoming, and making our first days in Rio so pleasant. We would definitely come back here and absolutely recommend it!
We only stayed here one night as were stopping off in Rio on route to Ilha Grande. The house is charming and conveniently located between Lapa and Santa Teresa. Evandro was there to greet us and gave us all the information as soon as we arrived. thanks!
This is such a charming place. So clean, well-decorated, quiet and close to Lapa, in a safe neighborhood. Further, Evandro is a kind and gentle host. Would get back to there in my next trip to Rio.
Minha estadia na casa foi super rápida mas gostei bastante. Precisava de um local as pressas e o Evandro foi bastante solícito, respondeu minhas mensagens rapidamente e fez de tudo para que nos sentíssemos a vontade. Os gatos são super fofos!
Evandro and Leo were wonderful hosts! They were helpful to tell us exactly how to get around, and gave us lists of great places to go as well. I really appreciated their kindness and hospitality! The home is so cute and is in a wonderful neighborhood that is dripping with culture! And when we had issues with water, Evandro found a way for us to shower upstairs as a quick accommodation. I highly recommend this home!
