4 – Location:
4.1 - The street
Small and peaceful street in the heart of Itaim. It´s really one of the nicest streets in Itaim The street is just one block long and so it is very quiet while very central. It´s one of the quietest streets in Itaim.
The flat is in the best part of Itaim. 5 minute walk to a large number of restaurants, bars, movie theaters, shops, supermarkets, dry cleaning, gym, cabs, coffee shops, bakeries, etc.
Some of the trendiest restaurants and bars in Sao Paulo are within a 10 min walk
10 minute walk to Faria Lima Avenue (main financial district in São Paulo).
1 block from Etoile George V (Itaim) hotel. 20 minute walk to Ibirapuera Park. Iguatemi and JK Iguatemi malls are within a short taxi ride.
Really convenient and nice location.
4.2 - Itaim
It´s a high end neighbourhood in São Paulo. It´s a mix of business (it´s São Paulo prime business district: Faria Lima Avenue and surroundings), entertainment (many of the best restaurants, bars, nightclubs of Sao Paulo are in Itaim), shopping (Iguatemi mall, etc) and residential (it´s one of the best residential locations in town). Itaim is one of the few neighborhoods in Sao Paulo where you can still do everything by walking. In addition, Rua da Mata is in one of the nicest parts of Itaim. And it´s a a short taxi ride to Jardins (Oscar Freire Street, Av Paulista, etc). It´s easy to find cabs and frequent buses to everywhere in the city. There is no tube/subway in the area though.

My second stay at Marcelo`s place was as perfect as the first one. Marcelo is a great host and his apartment is just perfect for everbody who wants to enjoy the nice neigbourhood in Itaim with restaurants and bars. Marcelo will help you everything you need and provide you with all informations you need before your arrival.
You are looking for a great apartment which is located in one the best neighbourhoods of Sao Paulo? Then Marcelo's place is exactly what you are looking for! The apartment is spacious, clean, modern and very comfortable, a perfect place to stay for weekend or a longer periode of time like me. His place makes my stay in Sao Paulo just perfect. For me it is not like a holiday apartment, it is my second home since the first moment of my arrival. Around the Condo everything is very easy to reach... Supermarket, great Cafés, a big variety of amazing Restaurants, gym etc. Everthing you need can be reached by foot within a few minutes. Marcelo is a great host, cares a lot and became a good friend. For me it's the best place to stay in Sao Paul, with the best host I've ever had. I've already booked my next stay!
Marcelo é um anfitrião muito dedicado. Você se sentirá em casa literalmente, tudo que você precisa.
Obrigado por tudo Marcelão.
This is the second time I stay at Marcelo's place. Both visits were a success. The apartment is spotless, comfortable and very pleasant. The location is perfect for those working/visiting Itaim and offers lots of walking-distance restaurants, shops and services.
Marcelo is a lovely host who provided me with lots of useful information about the neighborhood and São Paulo in general. He masters the perfect combination of discretion and friendliness. In particular I like his place because, as a professional, I need a quiet space for work and convenient location that allows me to beat the SP traffic jams.
Marcelo is an awesome host. He is extremely helpful with any questions. He emails you a list of things to do and places to go. He opens his house to you with no restrictions. He offers you his food and support with any of your needs. The place is extremely spacious and clean. If you are a quiet person he will respect your space and if you want someone to talk to he has lots of stories. His English is great and he is a very charismatic person. The location is amazing! Very clean and friendly neighborhood. Tons of restaurants and bars in the area! You won't regret spending time at Marcelo's
