Gisella was a great host and she made us feel very welcome. She even took us on a little trek the last day to show us some beautiful sights near the house!
The images and description of the ad are very accurate. The room and the bed are very confortable and the house is lovely and clean.
The neighbourhood (Leblon) is one of the poshest in the city and therefore very safe and worth a visit! Gisella's place is quite a residential area, it takes 10-15 minutes walk to the beach or any shops/restaurants. We felt it was slightly far from other interesting neighbouhoods in the city to visit (e.g City Centre, neighbourhoods like St Teresa or Botafogo), but yet it's a huge city! And Leblond is close to Ipanema and Copacabana... So it all depends on what your plans are once you're in Rio!
Es difícil encontrar palabras tan agradables como los recuerdos de mi corta estadía en casa de Gisella.
La casa es muy hermosa.
Es muy agradable regresar luego de un día de playa, de recorridas por Río, etc. Un gran premio salir a la hermosa terraza que da al morro antes de dormir o la mejor manera de empezar el día.
Todo esto se amplifica mucho por los detalles con que Gisella discretamente ayuda a hacer la estancia perfecta.
No falta nada. Todo es muy bonito y de muy buen gusto.
Y así y todo, Gisella lo hace más agradable.
Conversaciones acerca de Río, e incluso del viajar por el mundo en general, cosa que se ve le agrada.
También de Cine y música etc, que son parte importante de conocer cualquier lugar.
El entorno es muy bello también. Notablemente más silencioso y tranquilo que otras partes que conocí en Río
Espero volver pronto. Me enteré por ella de muchas cosas más que todavía me quedan para conocer.
Es muy difícil definir lo que más me ha gustado, pero tiene que ver con lo agradable que se siente llegar allí, y que literalmente no falte nada. Amé la terraza. la habitación, la limpieza de todo y el respeto que, sin perder la amabilidad y la voluntad de ayudar, hace sentir Gisella, en el trato y en la preparación.
Giselle fue una gran anfitriona. Su casa es soñada donde cada ambiente es diferente y las comodidades inmejorables.
Vive en un muy lindo barrio lleno de bares para poder pasar un muy buen rato.
Muchas gracias Giselle por hospedarnos. Esperamos volver a contar contigo en otra oportunidad.
Gisella was very helpful upon our arrival and throughout the stay at her place. Gisella was knowledgeable about fun areas to go and places to eat.
The apartment was clean and beautiful. The bed/bedroom was clean and comfortable too, having AC on a hot night is very nice too. The apartment is located in a very clean and nice part of town near top of the neighborhood hill. It is very safe to walk at night and day. The apartment is at the top of the hill so your legs will get a good workout if you decide to walk back to the apartment. The bathroom is shared with Gisella and it is very big and nice.
Overall, my girlfriend and I had a great experience and would recommend this place.
Nice stay! Tanks gisella for your kindness! I Will come back! Abracos
The place was fantastic. Clean and comfortable and in a really great location. Though close to plenty of restaurants, bars and the beach the house feels like a welcome escape at the end of the day. Gisella was a great host -- very communicative and responsive. Definitely recommended.
Hope next time you can come with little more time and at holidays so i can show you some hidden gems we have around like trekking at the big rock you could see from the garden here through going by Vidigal Favela or the 2 Brother's rock Park with Niemeyer's sculptures passing through a small Community and Vidigal (Sheraton) Beach!
Giselle's apartment was in a wonderful location with Leblon beach, mountains, great restaurants and shopping on your doorstep. Giselle has great local knowledge and helpful advice about Rio, Brazil and South America. We'll never forget the views at the top of the neighbouring mountain, and our trek through the favelas - Thanks to Giselle for helping us along our journey!
Anthony and Christina are a lovely and brave couple travelling all over the Americas.
They had been to north to south after their australian national team in Brazil and now are heading to Bolivia, Peru. God help all the audacious travellers to find the best places and have lots of bless on their journey. I love the travellers, they're nicest people and very curious about the countries they visit. Hope they'll get the better pleaces to host them as they're very respectfull and sweet. Come back for another hot tub session!

love traveling, yoga, dancing, reading, watching films of course, with friends around.
Had lived in Paris and LA and visited many countries in Europe, and Latin America. Now, intending to discover Asia... started with India, great experience! but Rio is still my favorite town…
PS: this picture was taken in Ireland at famous beach from Ryan's Daughter a masterpiece film by David Lean!
