Interaction with Guests

Everyday I am available to interact and give you any information you may need on the house and on the city.

The Neighborhood

This is a cul-de-sac 2 storey-house, a very calm address nearby São Paulo main attractive hot-stops and next to a beautiful and traditional stadium named Pacaembu., As the house, both neighbourhoods are high altitude São Paulo areas, full of green and partly preserved as it has been for the latest 60 years _ what is a privilege in a metropolis so dynamic as São Paulo is.

Getting around

Two blocks from home you find a bus stop where you can either go to Paulista, Faria Lima, Ibirapuera or down town. Ten blocks from home you will be able to reach the subway green line at two different stations _ Vila Madalena and Sumaré. The latest is a specially beautiful one, with a nice view of paulistanos, art on its glass windows and great views of Sumaré, Pacaembu and Pinheiro neighbourhoods. Both stations can also be reach by a short bus ride.
Bohemian Vila Madalena neighborhood with its vivid bars and music are just two blocks far from the referrred subway station, and 12 from the house.

Other Things to Note

This is not the place to rent in case you don´t like sunny and bright environments or you only like modern buildings. But if you do like it, don´t loose the opportunity of enjoying a São Paulo dawn or evening view at Mirante do Sumaré.

  • Nous avons été heureusement surpris par cette première expérience d'airbnb.Les informations sur le site correspondaient a la réalité sur place.
    Maison charmante dans un quartier tranquille de Sao Paulo ( seul bémol ,les dénivelés de rue ,mais très surmontables).
    Chambre et salle de bain individuelle, propre ,simple et agréable.
    Surtout Maria Helena a été une hôtesse parfaite.C'est une personne cultivée,ayant beaucoup voyagé,curieuse de tout, attentive à nos centres d'intérêt.Elle nous a facilité notre séjour à tout point de vue,visites,modes de transport,restaurants sympathiques,rencontres très intéressantes.Autour de petits déjeuners copieux et variés,avec toutes sortes de jus de fruits,pains ,spécialités brésiliennes,nous avons longuement parlé (en français,ce qui nous arrangeait bien) de sujets divers.Nous nous y sommes sentis très bien et remercions Maria Helena de son hospitalité.
    Muito bem!

  • It was my first AirBnB experience and a great one thanks to Maria Helena. She was the kindest hostess, giving me all the information I needed, spending time with me and evenintroducing me to French-speaking friends of her.
    She's a very pleasant person who helps you enjoy your travel.
    The studio is well lit up and cosy with a real nice bed and a private bathroom.
    I would definitely recommend Maria Helena's place.

  • the house is old but clean. the neighborhood is safe and quite, a good place a bit out from the heart of the nightlife, but well connected with buses and metro. Maria Helena is a very kind host, flexible, helpfull, curious, and has many interests, a good company to spend some time. We enjoyed the staying in her appartment.

  • What a wonderful peaceful retreat this is!
    I loved staying at Maria's. In the mids of crazy all consuming Sao Paulo, in San Francisco style beautiful neighbourhood Sumare, lays this little house in between larger buildings with its own style and character. Oh, I wish I was back. Maria is laid back, chill host who knows where to go, and when and assists you in moving around. Her place is old style, light, spacious and..well unique. Recommended. X

  • Maria Helena was a great host. Only had one night in SP and with her help made the most of it. She also went above and beyond to help on taxi's and travel arrangements to the airport. Very comfortable suite on top of everything else.

  • Wonderful Place. Private, Cozy and quiet. Maria is an excellent host, always worried if your stay if perfect. I really recommend this bedroom if you are looking from somewhere in Sao Paulo.

  • Maria Helena was a gracious hostess and made sure we were content and comfortable. We had a wonderful evening out on the town and she showed us some of the highlights of Sao Paolo. The room was very comfortable. I recommend staying at this place in the Vila Madalena neighborhood.

  • My stay in Passos 'quiet, sunny, charming' room was most unpleasant. This house is in a severe state of dilapidation and I would NOT recommend that anyone who cares about their health stay here.

    Response from Maria Helena:

    The entire house is fine. It couldn´t and cannot be different as I have been living in it for years. Lots of reviews also confirm my statement as well as recently verification photos taken by airbnb. Lovely place to stay in: a sunny small bath ensuite bedroom in a green and quiet cul-de-sac at Sumaré area, a real jewel in an always busy metropolis such as São Paulo is. The charm is granted by art reproductions on the walls and vintage furniture combined with practical and very useful appliances in the kitchen as well as in the bathroons.

    July 2012
  • The house is lovely on a quite and pleasant street. The surrounding area is relaxing with a few nice bars and local supermarkets and good transport links.
    A good choice for a convenient stay in Sao Paulo.
