Other Things to Note
Somos una pareja (Marcelo y Elisa) y tenemos tres (hermosas!) hijas. Dos ya no viven más con nosotros, y la benjamina está estudiando en el extranjero… Por eso, como nos sobró bastante espacio en el hogar, decidimos realizar un antiguo sueño: el de hospedar gente amiga, de cualquier rincón del planeta! Esto nos permite sentirnos un poco " on the road" aun cuando no estamos viajando.
Somos muy tranquilos, nos encanta nuestra casa, y la hemos decorado según nuestro gusto y nuestras vivencias.
Nos encanta viajar, escuchar buena música, de cualquier estilo, ir al cine, y cocinar algo especial, de vez en cuando.
Como viajamos mucho, y nuestra hija Julia también (está estudiando fuera del país), es probable que la casa esté con menos gente cuando vengas.
Esperamos que te sientas bien con nosotros, y que conozcas un poquito mejor el estilo " carioca" de vivir. También esperamos ayudarte en todo lo que podamos, durante tu permanencia en Río.
Cuenta con nosotros, y...ven a nuestro nidito, porque estamos seguros de que te va a encantar!
Somos un hogar de NO fumadores; podrás fumar en el área externa del Edificio, a pocos metros de la vivienda.
No tenemos animalitos en casa; por eso mismo, tampoco recibimos a huéspedes que los tengan, pues no estamos preparados para hacerlo bien.
Mantenemos el orden, la limpieza y el uso consciente de toda la casa y sus electrodomésticos. Lo mismo esperamos de nuestros invitados!
Our confortable and big "coach" is perfect for a rest after fun and beach, and a good reading!
I had a great stay with Elisa and Marcelo in their lovely home, which is very close to the airport bus and very nice and safe. The metro is about 10 min walk away and there are loads of buses. The wifi is great in the apartment. Elisa and Marcelo were so helpful with recommendations of where to go and doing my laundry. And their lovely daughter Julia waited with me at the bus stop and made sure I got on ok! A lovely family in a lovely city.
Un accueil chaleureux et bienveillant.
L'appartement est très bien situé et la chambré ravissante.
On se sent chez soi!
I had a great time with Elisa, Marcelo and Julia. The apartment in a good location, close to nature, but also to some landmarks. The room has a nice youthful atmosphere, felt like I was a child back at my parents' house again :D But most importantly, my hosts were extremely helpful, gave me recommendations for sightseeing, and were overall very friendly and talkative. Highly recommended!
First of all many thanks to Elisa, Marcelo and Julia for their kindness. The response from my booking was very quick and smooth. (Superhost) I felt very welcome, for my first trip to Rio . They were very helpful for my goal touring around Rio. The apartment is very clean and comfortable. The location are next to a bus station or a metro, so that many sights are good to reach. I have a wonderful trip of Rio from classical music mixed with samba (Teatro Municipal) to natural sight (Jardim Botânico) to the beach of Ipanema and last but not list the world of wonder Christ the Redeemer. Well, this is just a glimpse of Rio.
Elisa and Marcelo have been a wonderful family and host for me! They asked me beforehand for what I want to do in Rio and they can help me to make reservation. During my stay, they gave me great suggestions about transportation and places to go. There was one day I was sick and Elisa gave me hot tea and medicine, which was very sweet and made me feel like home! The last day I stayed they invited me to a ballet in the Municiple theater (one of the best in Brazil) and Joseph played. It was such an amazing opportunity for me and I couldn't say how great it had been for my stay in Rio! It's such a loving family with kind people and atmosphere that I would recommend it to anyone comes to Rio!
this was my 2nd stay with Elisa & Marcello and as always they made me feel right at home and apart of their lovely family. There is nothing that Elisa & Marcello wont do for you. Such lovely, warm people. I want them to adopt me haha.
The apartment is beautiful & immaculately clean and it is the perfect location. Praia do Botafogo is one of my favourite areas of Rio
Para mim que viajo muito a trabalho, a experiência de me hospedar na casa das pessoas tem feito toda a diferença. Ainda mais quando encontramos em nosso caminho pessoas como a Elisa. Ela realmente se preocupa com o bem estar do hóspede e nos deixa muito à (website hidden) certeza vou retornar. Grande abraço!
