Aunque no conocí a Flávia y Waldir, por que estaban de viaje, mi estancia en Rio fue fantántisca.El apartamento tiene una localización privilegiada para poderse mover por la ciudad, y dispone de lo necesario para sentirse a gusto en el. Si vuelvo a Rio, repetiré.
We stayed in Waldir and Flavia's flat for a week. We liked it very much. The location is excellent, with many nice shops and restaurants nearby. The apartment is airy, with loads of light and very comfortable. Waldir and Flavia were also very helpful and friendly. I thoroughly recommend this place.
We had a very nice stay in Rio at Flavia and waldir place who have been very nice hosts giving all usefull tips about the appartment and the neighborood so that we could enjoy as much as possible our one-week long stay stay.
One of the very good point with this place is its perfect location in the heart of Botafogo, a very lively and safe area, from which all the city is easily accessible by subway, bike (we could use those of Flavia and Waldir which was really great to go to Copacabana and Ipanema) or short taxi ride.
The appartment per se is nicely decorated, and and large enough for 2 or 3 people. For 4 people we find it a little bit small (for european standards) especially for cooking and having dinner at home.
Me and my friends spent a week in this cozy apartment . It´s large, well-equipped and the bedrooms are very iluminated. Flavia and Waldir left very clear instructions and were always available for any questions. The localization is perfect, we liked so much this part of Botafogo, full of bars and restaurants and close to the downtown and Copacabana, Ipanema. We recomend it!!
What a wonderful space! Great apartment that is located in a great convenient spot close to the Metro. Right on Botafogo beach. Flavia and Waldir were super helpful even when we needed help.
No complaints what so ever! Said a month in the apartment, and it was a great choice!

About the Host, Flávia + Waldir
I'm a perpetual student with many interest. I studied Social Science is college and that gave me some good tools to understand and to be in this society. I lived at Rio most of my life, but I travel a lot (body, mind and spirit). I'm specially concerned about how to live in this planet in harmony with all living beings, especially with myself. I'm part of a organic consumer association struggling against agribusiness (witch is really strong in Brazil). I love to cook, the kitchen is full of spices to feed mind and body. I'm also involved in permacultural projects rescuing our ancestral knowledge to build a new world. I have a strong connection with mother Gaia. Life is a constant learning. Now, the apartment is been shared with an amazing human being called Waldir. Here we cook, make bread and pizza, do exercises, read books, play music, clean the house, do gardening and try to be awake in the meanwhile. It's the adventure of being alive.
