Interaction with Guests
I pretty well keep to myself and stay in my room or the kitchen most of the time. Most of the time, guests don't even know if I am in or out. I speak Portuguese only, and can give helpful information about the neighborhood. My daughter is fluent in English and can be reached by email at most hours of the day.
Very close to restaurants, Ipanema,Copacabana, and Leblon beaches, transportation, all services, and souvenir shopping. This is the prime location in all of Rio.
Metro station is 80 metres from my apartment. Buses connecting to all parts of Rio stop at the Square across the street. Taxis pass right in front of the building.

Fui recebido pela Maria que me deixou à vontade e me deu as chaves do apartamento. A suíte é ótima com banheiro e escritório. O ar é silencioso e a cama excelente. A localização é excepcional, com todo o tipo de negócio nas proximidades.
A Maria é ótima anfitriã. Nos sentimos acolhidos. O lugar está bem localizado, perto da praia e do metrô. O charme de Ipanema em cada esquina. Nossa historia de amor começou aqui há 14 anos, apresentar este lugar a nossa filha de 7 anos foi tão especial por causa da estadia perfeita.
A estadia foi ótima, a localização do apartamento é incrível e Maria nos deixou muito a vontade.
A Maria foi uma ótima anfitriã! Sempre solicita, nos ajudou quando foi preciso.
O apartamento em geral é ótimo, não somente o quarto. Muito bem localizado, perto de metrô, ônibus e praia.
A feira no domingo também é muito interessante.
We enjoyed our stay at Maria's apartment. Maria does not speak Portuguese but she was very hospitable and helped us feel at home. The apartment is cozy, clean and comfortable, very reasonably priced and the location is great. The metro, Ipanema beach, many botecos and restaurants are all very close. We will be happy to return and recommend for anyone visiting Rio.
Maria was a wonderful host. Very accommodating and her daughter Miriam was very responsive to any questions or concerns we had. The location could not have been any better, one block from the beach and with stores and restaurants Aron d the corner. There is even a hippie fair across the street on Sundays.
A localização do apartamento é excelente perto da praia e de tudo! A suíte é espaçosa e o ambiente muito agradável sem falar da localização que é perfeita. A Maria é atenciosa e gentil, me deixou bastante a vontade! Recomendo!
