Response from Alex:

Nancy is saying untruth things about my place.
For possible future guests, before you read this long lines, please read all the other reviews, they speak for themselves.
She booked trough airbnb for a week and requested to stay another week. I guess she liked my place, otherwise she would not extend for a week. There are so many options in Rio.
1 - About who lives in the house.
I am the only as a "tenant" in the house….
While Nancy was at the house, there were me and 2 more people: Mila, a very cool and quiet student from Canada (who moved from the house while Nancy was here). Renata, a TV producer who leaves the house to work in the morning and comes back around 9pm (she spends most the time in her boyfriend's house, we barely see her). And me, who at the time, was in between two jobs, shooting films and editing…
2 - Door: as opposed to what She said, this room has a locker, there are lockers on the sliding wooden doors.… she should have asked me for help.
3 - The house: she also misunderstood something else, this house does not have either a "BNB or a roommate vibe": this house does not fits in a formula or in any specific vibe that Nancy had expected to find. And that's why people usually like it so much. It is a quiet and peaceful house. While I am here, I will be either working or watching films… I work in the field a lot also... People who come here most the time are busy with their own life, studying, researching or working, but when we feel like talking or hang out, we do, besides it, we respect each other's space...
4 - Location: Gávea is in the heart of Zona Sul, it is the next neighborhood to Leblon! One of the best places in Rio. Spending time in buses have nothing to do with Gavea. Anywhere you are in Rio, will make you spend time in buses, unless you choose a bike to go around town. I ride my bicycle. From Gavea you can go to a lot of places with a bike. Mila mentioned above was riding my other bike around town as well (she borrowed it from me during her 3 months here)
So, As you said, Nancy, "All in All", we had a good time talking about multimedia storytelling, etc, I told you about places to go in Rio, also about a fisherman village. You told me about your life and travelling...
You were nice, but I was surprised about your review. I recommend hosting her, I just hope you don't be disappointed after hosting her and reading her review... it did not matche what was going on here... I guess we had a totally different experience.
Nancy, I wish you to be happier in your future, I hope you can be a grateful and a cheerful guess.
