  • Perfect for a few days in the city! Katia went out of her way to help make my Rio experience an amazing one! This apartment has all the comforts of home including wifi, clean sheets/towels and refreshments!

    Response from Katia & Gardenia:

    It was a pleasure to meeting you! Thank you.

  • The location was fantastic. Many very good restaurants within a few minute walk and near Metro station. The apartment had everything we needed. Katia was just so helpful and friendly. She was totally open to assisting us in anyway during our long stay. Another excellent advantage of this place is that it is 1 block step by the Copacabana beach. Overall I would highly recommend the experience of staying in this apartment, and the hospitality shown by Katia. When I go back to Rio I will certainly try and stay there again.

  • We had a great time at the Stylish Studio! The flat is everything you need! The decoration is lovely and the space is so cosy that makes you feel at home. The kitchen has everything needed even if you need to cook. It is provided with small things (such as salt, oil, sugar, dishes soap, etc), that proved to be very useful for someone on a short vacation like us. Imagine having to buy all that for just a few days!
    The internet worked perfectly and the TV had loads of channels in english (there's the "audio" button to change the idiom on some channels).
    The location was also perfect, nearby supermarkets, restaurants, shops, and the beach is just 1 block away. Buses to all attractions can also be taken from just a few meters away.
    On top of that, we couldn't have asked for better hosts. Gardenia and Katia were extremely nice and always offered help and guidance during our stay. We even got complimentary chocolates!
    I would definitely stay in this studio again!

  • The studio is super well located. I really couldn't ask for a better location: just 1 block from Copacabana beach, surrounded by supermarkets, restaurants and everything you need. There's also cabs everywhere, so it's quite easy to take a cab for when you need to go somewhere else.
    Super clean & nice. It's a studio, but the way is decorated makes it bigger and very cosy.
    I spent a great time there with my fiance and we want to go back. Katia is very friendly and gives you very helpful tips about what to do & where to go, so you should definitely stay here. You will have a fabulous time!

    Thank you, Caterine.

  • What a great way to visit Rio! Katia is a fantastic host, incredibly helpful and really helped us get to know Rio. We visited some local artists, got a portrait done by Patricia Brasil - incredible, went on a great favela tour, all with Katia's help.

    The apartment is located really close to the beach, short walk to the metro, great access point for all activities. Charming place, clean and comfortable. If you like dark quiet places to sleep - this is not the place, but you're right in the heart of a busy community which is just great.

    I couldn't recommend this place or our lovely host more highly. Thanks Katia for making our first stay in Rio so wonderful.

  • Katia is great! She responds very quickly to questions, goes out of her way to make you feel comfortable and has great tips on what to do in Rio. Her apartment was as advertised, very cosy and cute, fast internet and clean. Will definitely book again if we return to rio!

  • This was a perfect apartment for us on our trip to Rio! It was spacious, clean, comfortable, and well provided for. Katia is lovely and very helpful. She explained us everything about the city and we were able to go easily to every point we visited. There are markets just across the street, and the restaurants in the neighborhood were the best that we encountered. The apt. is just a few minutes walk form the famous beach of Copacabana. We had very a great stay! Thanks so much Katia and we hope to come back soon!

  • Great experience! The flat is comfortable, cozy and with a lot of style. It is an oasis in a the busy area of Copacabana. Everything is close: super markets, restaurants, banks... I even took some time to go to the hairdresser few blocks away. Great pizzas just next door!

    What made the experience even greater was Katia, my host, who was more than kind. She left goodies in the fridge (never happened to me in airbnb), she provided me with a useful Rio Guide, she even took the time to find a doctor and even come with me as an interpreter (I had a one day flu so I was able to enjoy the rest of my vacation because of that).

    I will go back without hesitations!

    Thank you Katia!!

  • I loved staying at Katia's apartment. She has incredibly fast Wi-fi which is important for anyone who needs to stay connected while in Brazil. The building is safe - with a doorman - and is just around the corner from the beach. There is also a grocery store, pharmacy, and a bank with ATMs a few blocks away.

    Katia's apartment is incredibly quaint and she really makes you feel at home.

    Sitting on a busy street, it's extremely easy to catch a cab. Everything you need is within a five - seven minute walk from Katia's apartment.

  • Katia is a fantastic person , very helpful and willing to help in matters where she does not have to. She took us out on our first night in Rio and we had a fantastic evening. Sfe also gave us a Rio guide book which was very good. The apartment is good but only one thing brings it down- the lack of daylight. There are windows but because of the shades and the surrounding buildings, no daylight can't get in and you feel it is dark all the time. Also the general lighting in the apartment can be better-not enough light. A main light bulb on the wall or ceiling would be much better than the the lamps only that do not provide enough light..
    The bed was rather uncomfortable for me. I have a back problem and found the bed too hard.
    The best part is the location, very near the beach!

My mother and I love to travel and get to know the local culture. We travel a lot together and we always rent apartments in the cities we visit to have a perspective of a resident. I - Katia - worked and lived in DC for almost 15 years. After several years with the World Bank, I decided to leave DC in 2010, return to Brazil and try something different. It has been great so far.... I loved my life, friends and work in DC so it was a difficult decision but a good one. My mother Gardenia owns some apartments and love to host foreigners visiting Rio and provide them with our insights of Rio. I am helping her with the coordination and reservations. It has been working so well that recently my cousin, aunt and a friend asked us to add their apts to our list.
