A estadia na casa do Alex foi formidável. A localização é excelente. O apartamento fica do lado de centros de arte e de parques e lindas áreas verdes da cidade, além de estar pertinho da praia do Leblon. O astral da casa é ótimo e Alex é um anfitrião muito atento e organizado. O quarto é perfeito. Muitos armários, amplo, arejado e com uma bela vista. Além disso Alex é uma pessoa querida e iluminada.

About the Host, Alex
I am a photographer and filmmaker. Born and raised in Rio de Janeiro. I have travelled some of the world since I was seventeen.
Lived in America mainland for 2yrs and in Hawaii for 2yrs as well, from 17 to my 21yrs old. I've been in Europe for work, London, Paris and Germany.
Last ten years i've been less on the road and more solid satying in Brazil. Time to restart travelling again. That's it for now.
