  • 1. Katia was fabulous. She provided a great long list of recommendations to help us get best from our stay ie restaurants, shops, things to do. They were all on the money. Katia also dealt very quickly with little issues and stopped them becoming big issues. We were amazed that she was able to find a plumber on a Sunday. Great work Katia
    2. Apartment is just fabulous. A Tardis as its even bigger in reality than in the photos. It was very tastefully decorated and everything that we needed was there.
    3. Location is very safe.Both apartment itself and the locale of west Ipanema. We were fine walking around at night alone. It felt like we were in a wealthy Melbourne suburb
    A great stay. Totally recommend to any who follow

  • Nossa estadia no Rio foi maravilhosa!!! O apartamento é agradável, amplo, aconchegante e super bem localizado. Fica numa rua tranquila, próxima a tudo e ao mesmo tempo preservada dos circuitos das inúmeras bandas de carnaval que tomam conta do Rio nesse período. Gardênia e Kátia foram extremamente atenciosas conosco, providenciando todas as informações para desfrutarmos o melhor do Rio. Não poderia ter sido melhor!!

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.
