Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Things to be aware of before you decide to rent this place:
    1.“Spacious” is a relative term. The apartment was much too small for two adults and a child. The bedrooms have little room around the beds. Beds are full size, not queen size, making them a tight fit for two people. Bathrooms are tiny and lack tubs.
    (website hidden) AC. Brazil is having its hottest summer on record. 90+ degrees nearly every day. The apartment has no AC, only fans.
    3.The owner claims that the living room sofa can be used as a bed. What we found was a ratty stained futon with a frame that could not be opened to lie flat. The futon was so hard that is was really uncomfortable.
    4.The kitchen lacks basic cooking tools: We had to buy a coffee pot, butcher knives, a vegetable peeler, garlic press and Tupperware. Pots and pans are scratched Teflon coated aluminum (carcinogenic!) with loose handles.
    5.Hot water is very limited. The house manual says two people can’t shower at once. Even one person showering will lose hot water after 60 seconds.
    6.The washing machine doesn’t clean your clothes. Our whites got stained.
    7.Neighborhood: There is not a lot of street activity, unlike other trendier neighborhoods like Villa Magdalena. The area near the apartment is full of bridal shops and high-end furniture stores. No small grocers nearby. It’s a half-mile hike to a very expensive supermarket.
    8.Public transportation: Avenida Rebouças, which is nearby, has many buses. The subway is quite far away.
    9.Cancellation policy: Be sure you are committed before you start the reservation process. The owner is a real stickler about cancellations and will keep one month’s rent. I tried to cancel four months before my move-in date and all I got was a tirade about rules, even though Brazil is crawling with tourists this year looking for housing.
    10.The owner: less than gracious, shall we say. It’s her way or the highway. We got nasty emails about our cancellation request that made us very uncomfortable about staying at her place. Once we were in the apartment, when I contacted her to tell her about a power outage in the building, her response was “I’m not the Mayor!” When I called asked the building superintendent to help us out because the hot water did not appear to work, I got snapped at. She also got angry when I asked her to schedule a visit to the apartment at a time when I was home to receive her (although 24 hour notice to tenants is pretty standard for landlord protocol). Quite frankly we are glad to be out of there!

    Response from Ana Carolina - (Nina):

    -AC, BATH TUBE and SOFA BED- those items were NEVER among my amenities and therefore can't be claimed. (my two beds ARE QUEEN SIZE by Brazilian standards)

    -WASHING MACHINE- it's the best Brazilian brand, BRASTEMP, and it does not stain anything. People who wash whites and colors together are the ones that stain the clothes!

    -KITCHEN APPLIANCES - indeed I have only the basics and my kitchen is definitely not fir for a Chef! (I did get the coffee pot though!)

    -SIZE OF THE APT - 90 sq. meters or 900 sq. feet, full of light and a marvelous view!! (and probably 3 times the size of her place in Brooklyn,NY)

    -NEIGHBORHOOD- true, an expensive area, among the best: residential, full of green and yet a15 minutes walk to FARIA LIMA, JARDINS and VILA MADALENA. My street has 5 top restaurants, a pharmacy around the corner and two supermarkets around at 1/3 of a mile distance and both deliver free of charge. Indeed aside the restaurants and a few boutiques, there's not much "street activity" which makes my place quiet and peaceful, night & day, a rare thing is a huge metropolis like SP.

    -I have PLENTY OF HOT WATER (new gas boiler); as far as the hot water valve doesn't get turned-off which is exactly what the guest did, there is no further problem.

    -CANCELATION POLICY- yes, I'm strict and it says so on my listing. The guest knew about it when she booked so does NOT have the right to question it or attack me regarding that.

    -about me: please read ALL OTHER reviews on me, be it as a GUEST or as a HOS,T and draw your own conclusions!!

  • Nina is a gracious and accommodating host. She made us feel comfortable in her apartment and gave us a wealth of information about the surrounding areas and São Paulo itself. The apartment is just incredible. It is tastefully decorated, spacious and has a privileged location. Its right next to some of the trendiest restaurants in the city, also being a short walking distance from the rua dos pinheiros where you can find even more restaurants and shops that sell and provide any service that you would require. I just loved my stay at Nina's and would think that its just the perfect place for anyone on a business trip or looking to do some tourism in this great city.

  • Nina's apartment is perfect for visiting SP for work or fun. It is centrally located, near many great restaurants and walking distance to a few key points of the city. My wife and I spent one month there having plenty of space to make ourselves at home. Nina is a great host and the building staff is wonderful (and very patient with our limited Portuguese language skills).

    December 2013
  • We stayed here for a week on business. The location was excellent for ferrying between meetings on Paulista and in Faria Lima, and the apartment was a pleasure.

    Best of all, Nina went out of her way to make sure we were well taken care of!

    October 2013
  • The apartment is filled with sunlight, with open views, in a nice neighborhood, with several great restaurants nearby, including Maní, which was rated among the top 50 worldwide. It was quieter than many other apartments I've stayed in Sao Paulo. The only downside was the master bathroom did have a slight smell of cigarette smoke. Nina is very friendly and kindly showed me the way to walk to the local grocery store. This apartment is a good option in Sao Paulo.

    Response from Ana Carolina - (Nina):

    Hi Luke!
    If a guest wants to smoke I do allow them since my place is on the top floor, full of windows and very well ventilated! Even so, I do ask them to smoke by the windows and with the fans on. Sorry about that! xxx

  • Excellent location. Charming apartment. Wonderful hostess. Highly recommended.

  • Nina is one of the best hosts that I have ever had the pleasure to stay with. She is kind, welcoming, interesting, clean, respectful and independent. I felt at home as soon as Nina greeted me. She showed me around the neighborhood and, upon my interest, gave me a tour of the nearby restaurants, introducing me to people etc.

    Her apartment is wonderful. It is located in the best part of Sao Paulo. Six excellent restaurants are immediately downstairs. Walking in this neighborhood is very safe and presents so many interesting stores as well as a quiet calm feel. The apartment is on the top floor of one of the only buildings in this area giving the most spectacular view of Sao Paulo that I have seen.

    I travel around the world on a regular basis and stay in many airbnb apartments. When coming to Sao Paulo, I will definitely plan to stay here! I recommend Nina and this apartment very highly.

  • Nina's apartment is a beautiful, peaceful haven. The views of the city are epic. It was the perfect location for our business trip, you could not find better. Comfortable rooms, lovely furniture and antiques. Nina was a great communicator about every issue before arrival. Her lovely taxi driver was charming, the concierges at the desk were incredibly helpful, too. Who would want to stay in an impersonal hotel when you can stay in Nina's lovely apartment. A fabulous launchpad for an intriguing city. Sao Paulo's hidden gem.

    April 2013
  • Nina and her mom went above and beyond to make sure my family was comfortable and happy in Sampa. The apartment is so lovely, great view and has everything you could need. Very safe, very clean, great neighborhood. I would recommend Nina's place 150%!

    February 2013
  • If you go to Sao Paulo, this is the place to be! The apartment is located in a very nice and safe area. There are excellent bars and restaurants around perfect to walk from the apartment.
    I did not have the chance to meet Nina, but communications were easy and she arranged a perfect check-in with her mother.
    Very clean, very comfortable.
