Welcome to Rio de Janeiro!
O Alex é uma pessoa educada, agradável, honesta e muito querido. Ele se preocupa, querendo saber se vc esta bem acomodado, se esta se sentindo confortável.
O apt é aconchegante, limpo e bem silencioso.
O Bairro é ótimo, a vizinhança é amigável.
Meus roommater são muito tranquilos.
Alex é uma pessoa maravilhosa. Muito generoso, prestativo, aberto e interessado em criar um ambiente de harmonia e cooperação na casa. O apartamento é amplo confortável, tem estilo arte, e é sede de boas conversas, jantares, filmes e música. O quarto é lindo, com bons armários e uma bela vista A localização é fantástica. Em frente ao Instituto Moreira Sales, pertinho da praia e de todos os pontos mais transados da cidade. Foi um privilégio conviver com Alex, e poder desfrutar de um espaço rico em trocas afetivas e mútuos aprendizados. Super recomendo.
we stayed in the queen bedroom. the room and the bathroom were large, comfortable, homey and clean. we couldnt have asked for anything better. the appartment is really welcoming and in a great location, nice and safe, and within walking distance to leblon beach which was great. there are a few shops accross the road too, which is really handy for food/water etc etc..
Alex is an amazing host, which made our experience here even better. he is so friendly and helpful, and we enjoyed sharing his coffee and breakfast with him on most mornings.
If your looking for a great place to stay while visiting Rio, we definatly reccommend, and if we were to return to rio, we would love to stay here again. S&B

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.
