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!
Tudo Perfeito! Sem exageros... A casa linda, o quarto além de bonito e amplo possui uma vista incrível, a recepção com orientações desde o momento do agendamento, os anfitriões mega atenciosos, nada poderia ter sido melhor! Fizeram tudo para tornar minha experiencia no Rio ainda mais inesquecível. Do cuidado de receber e passar todas as orientações pertinentes a minha estadia, a preocupações com minhas programações, preocupações com meu bem estar, posso dizer que me senti acolhido como um filho. Ultrapassou o simples ato de alugar um quarto em uma determinada cidade e passou uma experiencia de vida fantástica. Prova disso é querer passar mais tempo na sala conversando do que passeando pelo (website hidden) direito a apresentações de boa musica, convidados simpáticos no ambiente descontraído.
Quanto a localização ou qualquer atributo referente ao imóvel, bairro, metro, serviços próximos, tudo ótimo atendendo minhas necessidades.
Acho que já deu para entender que amei tudo! E só tenho a agradecer a Elisa e sua família.
Se você esta lendo este comentário e ainda não ficou convencido... arrisque, porque será ótimo!
Elisa made me feel very welcome from the moment I arrived. We sorted communications so I could contact her and the room was lovely. The apartment has a really open feel and when you sit on the patio you can hear the birds. The whole place was very clean and I felt as though it was my own at times. Even the doorman helped me...
Botafogo is also a lovely central place from which to begin to explore Rio
Elisa, Marcelo and Julia were all extremely helpful and made me feel at home straight away. The room was exactly as they described, and their neighbourhood was very safe. They helped me out with advice on where to go, when and how and checked in regularly to just make sure everything was going ok. Julia gave me some very useful tips on which possible restaurants and shops to go to which was great. Very warm and welcoming, would definitely recommend.
The best place in rio to stay!! Very lovely family, they make me feel very welcome for the first moment. Elisa and her daughter are full with positive energy and happiness and i had a wonderful time with them. They give you always a good feeling and helped me with everything. The Apartment is really nice, big and clean. I felt all the time save and its easy to get around.
I came back to spend one additional night and everything was great again ! I'll sure be back, one day or another...
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!
