  • It's my second stay in this Apartment and I almost don't wanna leave at all! Thea is such a great host and always asking if anything is needed, also Dado is just a blessing. Even that i've never met Thea and her family personally, I feel like beeing part of them ;) I am so pleased to be allowed staying there!

  • I could write a lot of positive things about this apartment, but most important of all we felt at home. I really don´t like the small hotel rooms in Rio, so to be able to come back to this ideal apartment after a long day of sightseeing, having a glass of wine on the terrace and just relax, is priceless. The warm welcome by Thea and the many pieces of advise she gave us just made our stay even more comfortable and easy. My parents loved everything about Rio thanks to her hospitality, and I will definitely recommend this apartment to all the people, I know, who appreciate the family feel it gives you.

  • We absolutely loved Thea's apartment. The location is really good. Only 2 minutes from the Beach and on a really quiet street. Everyone in the building is really friendly and helpful.
    We loved how the apartment was decorated. Such good taste and really high quality. Such as the beds etc. Very comfortable.
    Thea as a host is absolutely perfect. She gives you lots of information about the area the apartment is in and is available for any questions. She is very friendly and super enthusiastic about her home town RIO which definitely has a contagious effect on oneself. Especially since Rio is REALLY just an absolutely amazing city!!! I can only recommend Thea and her lovely place!

  • We had a wonderful experience staying at Thea's apartment!! We booked for New Years Eve all the way back in June and even though it was so far away, Thea was patient and answered all of our questions. We received helpful, reminder emails from Thea leading up to our trip and felt well prepared!

    The neighborhood of Leme was wonderful! Quiet place that felt very safe but then you are only 10 minutes from the crazy action of Copa. Upon arrival, Dado the doorman was there with a smile to help us - which was a relief after 2 flights (1 overnight from Canada). Clean building with elevator and lovely people. Thea's apartment was perfect! Big enough to cook meals in (which helped with our budget), great living room with TV, awesome patio which we enjoyed every night, 2 bathrooms and a lovely bedroom and extra sleeping nook! It was very comfortable for 4 of us (1 of us was a couple and the other 2 friends). Only thing I would advise for those not used to the heat - the AC is only in the bedroom so just note that for those sleeping in the main room. We ended all just staying in the one bedroom together bc we were so hot but it was also an exceptionally hot time in Brazil and we got used to it in a few days.

    Honestly - this place felt like home for us. Thea and I talked as much as I wanted to, exchanged photos, they left a little gift for us upon arrival with a huge book on everything we needed to know for the apartment. Dado booked a driver for us named Sylvio to drive us to Buzios and he became a good friend! There is flowers, food, restaurants and shopping all right in Leme and everything else in Copa is a 10 - 15 min walk or a short cab ride away to Leblon/Ipanema.

    Having our accommodation be so cozy, clean and easy was a highlight of our trip. I will definitely recommend this apartment to any of my friends heading to Brazil and recommend you stay there too.

    Thanks again Thea!

    Response from Théa:

    it was exceptionally hot in Rio during your stay (more than 40°) while it was exceptionally freezing in USA and Canada (- 20 or -30 ° may be colder) So the thermal difference was very hard for you, canadians I think ! We bought this apartment in 1988, and never need air con in the living room and alcôve, only fans... but I am going to consider if a mobile air condition could be useful for the exceptionally future hot days...
    Leah, remember those burning days on the Copacabana beach : saudade ???????

  • We love this apartment! Very bright, well decorated, great balcony, nice showers, WiFi that works very well, it was all perfect. The apartment is very close to Copacabana beach and in a nice area. Contact with Théa was easy. We will be coming back very soon!

  • I am sure there is no better place to stay at the Copacabana than at Théas place!!! This apartment is sooooo lovely, you can immediately see that it is a family apartment and that someone put a lot of effort in it to make you feel like home there. Nice furniture, beautiful pictures, bright rooms, fully equiped kitchen, very comfortable master bedroom with own bathroom, another seperate bathroom for the second bedrom which is just seperated from the living room with a curtain, but you will feel like in a very cosy cave sleeping there. The place easily fits 4 people and is really spacious. All you need is there!!!! The best thing of course - Copacabana Beach is not even 2 minutes away! And if you want to start your day outside, just enjoy your breakfast on the sunny balkony, which is really rare to find - I promise - it makes your day! Everything else like supermarket, laundry, shops, bus stop is just in front of your door. Théa (unfortunatelly) wasn't there during my 20 nights stay, but she was helping me with everything in advance, and was available all the time via phone, mail, whatsapp in case you needed something. But as Dado was there eerything was perfect, even that I do not speak portuguese we understand each other and he was taking perfect care about me and if it was just with a smile! I will definitely come again and can advice everyone who wants to have a great stay in Rio to do the same! Théa and Dado, THANK YOU VERY MUCH for everything - you are brilliant!

  • was an amazing experience, Rio is one´s of the best´s places to be and for far the most beatiful city in brasil!, we stay with Thea and this complete all the experience, Her and Dado was the best hosts even with her far away!, the apartment it´s perfectly located, near to the beach, restaurants and some supermarkets, the street it´s very quiet and you can sleep so well!

    the apartment was renewed and all in the place it´s very clean and new, all you see in the photos it´s true!, and even they give you coffe, water and others amenities... You feel like in a luxury hotel!

  • Bonjour (email hidden) Adoré : c'est tellemnt mieux que l'hôtel pour des séjours professionnels (et bien sûr séjours privés).
    L'appartement est très clair, très spacieux avec une bonne literie, des draps fins, salles de bains impeccables et trsè sympas (2 salle de bains avec WC) Wi-Fi, chaines étrangères, petits déjeuners sur la terrasse très agréables.
    Plein de restaurants, supermarchés à proximité, la page de Copacabana à deux pas.
    En un mot un Excellent Rapport Qualité/Prix !
    Merci Théa. comme je vous le disais dans un mail lorsque vous venez à Paris==> appelez-moi !

  • What a lovely apartment ! Spacious, bright, clean, high quality for bedding... all what we see on airbnb site is true, even better.
    We enjoyed our breakfasts on the sunny terrace, it's very rare in Rio.
    Next time, we'll come with a couple of friends, the alcove bedroom is very comfortable, cozy, well separated, with a door opening on the terrace.
    The price, for a such high level of accomadation, is amazing.
    Thanks, Thea, for your advice and recomendations. And thanks for allowing us to enjoy the whole day of departure, with a very late check out.
    See you soon, I hope. Remi (april 2013)
