This was the first time we had done a shared airbnb and were a little apprehensive especially as the flat is comfortable but not overly spacious (the main reason we chose the flat is its location which truly could not be any better).However there was no need as Pedro was perhaps the nicest host we could have imagined. Not only did he make us feel welcome and well fed (we had the most delicious breakfast of fruit, croissants, coffee and fresh fruit juice every morning), he was actually responsible for one of the highlights of our 4 month trip so far. Basically we were struggling to get affordable tickets for the carnival (our travel agent was quoting us ridiculous prices) and when I asked him if he could help, he said yes. What we did not expect was for him to actually get us tickets in the parade itself with him and his lovely girlfriend. It is fair to say that when we arrived the most we expected was a room in a nice flat. What we actually got was far better - a couple of friends for life who we hope to see in London soon. Thanks Pedro
Excelente ubicación y muy linda y cómoda habitación y baño. A esto hay que sumarle que Pedro es una persona muy amable y simpática, dispuesto a ayudar en lo que uno necesite. Muy recomendable!
Pedro´s house is great and He is a very nice person. Excellent location, comfortable, clean, nice and quiet. Me and my wife spent a wonderful experience at Rio de Janeiro. Hope to be back soon.
Pedro's apartment in Rio was perfect. The apartment is close to all attractions, shopping and beaches. Pedro was the perfect host. He gave us advise on the very best food, music and shopping. Because of Pedro we had the perfect stay in Rio. I highly recommend his listing.

What can we say about our stay in Pedro's apartment...? Everything was perfect, just as shown in the pictures and it’s very well located (supermarket, metro, bus stops, and beaches all at a walking distance). The apartment was always very clean and tidy, we even had our own bathroom and Pedro was always willing to help us during our stay in Rio giving us great tips and advices. We felt very safe staying in Ipanema.
He's a very polite, smart and friendly host always in a good mood and with a great sense of humor. We really enjoyed our talks with Pedro, he even gave us tips for our next trip to Europe!
As Barney Stinson from the TV show "How I Met Your Mother" would say: our stay at Pedro's apartment was LEGEN... wait for it... DARY! And if you are looking for a place to stay in Rio, stop looking! THIS is the one. You won't regret it.
Pedro's house is a perfect location to enjoy your stay in Rio! A clean and safe place, close to restaurants, supermarket and the beach, of course! Pedro is a very outgoing host to talk with! We spent great days in Rio!
About the Host, Pedro
Laid-back, tennis freak, a Rio lover. Moved here in October 2010 & already feel like a carioca. Love have people over - always have - love movies and, most of all, music. Met Springsteen in person, love Pink Floyd and Tom Waits.
Travelling has been a good part of who i am and i`ve lived in NY, Toronto, D.C, Brussels and Lisbon before landing in stunning Rio de Janeiro that is and shall remain my home for years to come.
I`m a sporty guy and love the outdoors. I have climbed the Aconcágua, run a marathon in Buenos Aires, love my motorcycles, the Pikes Peak Ducati being my favorite one. But most of all, i love tennis, can`t imagine my life without it !
Mi casa es tu casa ! Welcome !
