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.

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.
El departamento esta muy bien ubicado, a poco mas de 1 cuadra de Ipanema, en la esquina del parque hay una estación de metro, y los buses de diferentes líneas pasan muy cerca (en la esquina). Hay restaurantes de todo tipo, farmacias y supermarkets, todo a 1 o 2 cuadras como máximo.
En cuanto al apartamento, esta bien, es sencillo pero tiene lo básico que se necesita para dormir ahí (esta tal cual pueden verlo en las fotos, sin cambios ni nada adicional). Nosotros no usamos ningún otro espacio del apartamento, pues salíamos la mayor parte del tiempo.
En cuando a la anfitriona, la interacción fue poquísima, pues ella solo habla portugués y nosotros no, por ello no podría darle mayores referencias.
Nous avons adoré notre séjour chez Maria ! L'appartement est parfaitement située : a 2 pas du métro et de la plage d'Ipanema. La chambre est tout confort ! Salle de bain privée, coin bureau, literie excellente, propreté irréprochable. Située au 8eme étage de l'immeuble on est vraiment au calme. En plus si vous avez un problème ou des questions, la fille de Maria pourra vous aider, elle parle parfaitement français (ce qui nous a été très utile pour contacter un médecin).
On a pu en plus effectuer le check in a notre arrivée à 8h du matin ce qui etait très pratique et vraiment adorable.
C'est vraiment un endroit parfait pour découvrir Rio, bien mieux que n'importe quel hôtel on s'est sentis comme chez nous :) n'hésitez pas !
Uma adorável surpresa! A MAria é realmente atenciosa e o aparatameto muito aconchegante. Super bem localizado em Ipanema, pertinho da praia e de ruas principais! Adoramos e recomendamos!
