About this listing
In a house in Flamengo neighbourhood a beautiful modern Room with Private Bathroom in the "Quadra da Praia", the block of the beach. Very quiet and safe. Metro at 1 min walk. Best place for visiting most of Rio's neighbourhoods. Close to everything.
It is a comfortable room with plenty of space for storage and a small kitchen in it with microwave, sink, fridge, and cooker. The bed is orthopedic with those great NASA pillows. The toilet is for your private use. Basically you'll be staying in a 25 sq meters, that is the first floor of the house. There are two more floors that are my personal ones. The ground floor is a living room.
You will have TV, a good WiFi connection and access to your floor in full privacy,
Interaction with Guests
Of course if I'll be there and not working upstairs we can share time together and maybe go out together. For sure I'll be able to give you plenty of suggestions about places to go and things to do.
Flamengo is one of the Historic neighbourhoods of Rio.
Plenty of transportations, but very good starting point for visiting by foot, walking. Again let me say, very safe.
The rules are the basic ones:
Cleaniness, politeness, no other peoples allowed in the house, general respect for the house, no excessive noise.
Glauco's home is a very unique and cool place.
Glauco himself is awesome. Even more unique and cooler than his home.. which is hard to be.
Un très bon séjour chez Glauco !
Au cœur d'un quartier très tranquille.
Encore merci Glauco pour tous les conseils !
Je vous conseille vivement cet endroit !!
Il nostro soggiorno in questa bella casa è stato breve ma piacevolissimo. La nostra sensazione è stata quella di essere ospiti in casa di amici, per quanto abbiamo trovato tutto accogliente e confortevole. Glauco è un perfetto anfitrione, una persona stupenda, con la quale è un piacere colloquiare. Possiamo solo dire che ci sono riusciti ed il viaggio resterà nei nostri cuori oltre che per la bellezza della città (Rio de Janeiro) anche per la fantastica accoglienza . Grazie ancora e sicuramente a presto!
Amazing apartment and very gracious host! Glauco welcomed us when we arrived and gave us a tour of the area and took us to a place with the best acai bowl and a delicious Brazilian crab delicacy. The place was very modern and clean and I love the rooftop deck!
Super accueil de Glauco !!! Disponible attentif de bon conseil on se sent comme à la maison dès son arrivée. L appartement est tout à fait conforme à la description et très confortable très bien placé tout près du métro des lignes de bus (direct aéroport) .
Le quartier est sûr et dispose de quoi prendre petit déjeuner et facilement faire des courses.
Sans hésitation je reviendrai chez Glauco et je recommande vivement son appartement.
Superb experience on every level - safe, comfortable, convenient, stylish, welcoming, luxurious... I could list so many things: first of all Glauco was an impeccable host, ensuring I had everything I needed and offering local advice when I needed it. We quickly became friends, but he also gave me space to do all I needed in the city. The house is spacious, immaculately designed with lots of storage, super comfortable mattress. It is located 5 mins walk from catete metro, so access to centro or the beaches is easy. Flamengo bay is right there with the park. Most importantly, it's a safe area and the house is secured within a gated development. And let's not forget the five star spa treatment - my stay coincided with a visit from glauco's sports masseur, an unexpected bonus! In summary: a generous and welcoming host with a fantastic pad. Go stay there.
About the Host, Glauco
I'm 40 yrs old, fluent in English, Portuguese and Italian. My nationality is Italian, but it's 4 yrs I live in Brazil, where my job is. I spend part of my time in my house and part in my girlfriend's one, so I won't be always at home. I'm pretty friendly and well taught, and I travelled a lot all over the world. I like good manners and respect, the same that I give to the others.
