Laranjeiras Neighborhood guide:
Leonardo's penthouse was really incredible. Great place to stay, near from everything you need to live the real Rio experience, marvelous space, furniture, bedroom and bathroom.
Thank you, Leonardo!
What an excellent experience we had at the apartment! While Leonardo was out of town, he was always available through messaging and gave my family and I great advice throughout our stay. His mother was amazingly hospitable and was one of the best hosts I've ever had. The apartment itself is very clean, comfortable and in a great/ safe neighborhood. Everything was positive, and we would love to stay there if we visit Rio again. OBRIDGADO!!!
Great place! leonardo and his family are super nice and the place itself is a gem. Well-located with privacy and space. Not directly in the ipanema/copa tourist corridor which for me is a plus but only a 10-minute walk to the metro which will take you anywhere you need. 5 stars!
Great hosts, great apartment, great location! Thanks for the great stay Leonardo&his family, highly recommended!
We stayed for a week in Leonardo's apartment at the end of September. We were so happy we found this place, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and highly recommend. The apartment is large and well arranged and has everything you would need for a short stay or long stay. It has lovely views form every window and a large balcony too take it all in. The location is perfect for getting around by metro and is very safe, peaceful and really green. There are supermarkets very close by and one in particular that mainly sells delicious fruit. Leonardo and his mother live in an apartment across the hall of the top floor of the building. They were very kind and helpful and made our stay so pleasant. Also Leonardo was super quick to our reply as we booked this place one day before we arrived. Thank you Leonardo!
Great apartment in a central but quiet location. We weren't too far from Zona Sul, Santa Theresa, or Downtown, while enjoying a great view of the neighborhood and the Sugar Loaf. We had a great experience and Leo and Cassia were very gracious hosts.
This place was perfect. I stayed for a month and if possible, its where I'll stay next time I'm in Rio as well. Leonardo and his family couldnt have been nicer or more helpful. For what I needed, i couldnt ask for more...
I can't speak highly enough for Leonardo and his apartment on Rua Pereira da Silva. Both he as a host and the place were fantastic. I would highly recommend this place to anyone traveling through Rio.
I stayed here for a little over two weeks while I was traveling for work. I loved living in Larajeiras neighborhood - it's quieter and leafier than Copacabana or Ipanema, where most "gringos" stay, and it gave me a chance to explore the older, most historic neighborhoods of Rio. If you stay here, be sure to try Severyna ((website hidden)) some night for dinner, and check out the live music in Praca Sao Salvador every Friday - both are within walking distance.
Leo's place is on the top floor of the building, and the views from here are incredible - the Päo de Açucar front and center! I enjoyed watching the sun rise and set from the balcony.
Leo and his mother are amazing hosts. I was given everything I needed - an ironing board and iron, plenty of towels and bedsheets, some sandwich fixings to get started with, and even a surprise container of brownies one day! I became ill my last week in Rio, but Leo and his mother took such amazing care of me! They brought me tea and food daily until I was feeling better and able to leave the house on my own.
If I ever go to Rio again, I will definitely stay here!
