House Rules

Rules and Tips for the Apartment (Thanks for taking good care of my small home in Rio, hope you fell home too)

•Don’t hesitate to write or call me with questions.
•Please do not put glasses or any wet objects directly over the wooden surfaces – use coasters.
•Gas water heating: in the kitchen, set round knob to the triangle (pilot), use a match to light the small flame, set the round knob full throttle and open the left water knob in the shower – wait 3 minutes to get hot water. Upstairs same as suite shower. Please TURN OFF gas pilot when not showering – Nature thanks you.
•Air Conditioning: all 3 remote controlled. In the leaving room make sure curtain is open when A/C in use. Please TURN OFF all air conditioning when leaving the apartment – Nature thanks you.
•All food is available for you. Any you leave behind will be consumed.
•Wireless internet is available, check the wireless password on the label by the side of the modem/router box above the TV.
•Phone is for use on local / national calls only. If calling outside Rio de Janeiro, dial “021-xx-number”, xx=area code. A R$ 100 monthly limit applies, excess cost will be charged to the tenant. Be aware long distance as well as calls to local cell phones are fairly expensive in Brazil.
•Stereo: 1st floor, set subwoofer to “Aux” for sound from the TV. For connecting an mp3/iPod use hanging cable and set TV source for “AV”.
2nd floor patio, amplifier is inside the cabinet under the TV. Use “mixer 1” / “mixer 2” for Mp3/iPod (cable hanging) or sound from TV. In both floors cable TV has a decent selection of music channels. Please be sensitive to neighbors and respect loud noise restrictions after 10PM.
•There is a second key set by the door for your guests, leave it in the apartment as you leave.
•There are extra towels and sheets in the drawers under the bed and in the upstairs closet.
•Upstairs refrigerator is kept off for energy conservation and to reduce noise for those sleeping there. Turn it on if needed by turning the outside button.
•The bedroom window is insulated and does not open. Please keep up and downstairs glass doors closed when leaving the apartment to prevent from possible rain or wind damages.
•Washing machine and supplies are in the patio cabinet. For drying use the clothes horse in the upstairs closet. The building has full laundry services in the premises at reasonable prices.
•The upstairs sofa opens as a double bed. The downstairs sofa extends the seat to a couch, or 3rd bed. There is also an inflatable bed in the upstairs closet.
•Someone sleeping upstairs can get more privacy by covering the spiral staircase with the wooden panels (in closet) - one piece was mounted with the foam on the top, not bottom part.
•Barbecue utensils are under the sink by the barbecue place – better wash them before use.
•Upstairs Patio Sofa Cushions ARE NOT WATERPROOF, please remove them inside after use.
•There are cleaning supplies behind the blinds in the toilet by the entrance.
•Be respectful of the noise restrictions passed 10PM. Fines are in effect.
•The maid – Gracinha – comes twice a week (or as agreed). Please remove the key from inside the door so her own keys can work. She will clean the apartment, change and wash sheets and towels and do eventual dishes. Other services like laundry, ironing or cleaning after a barbecue or more then a couple of days dishes can be arranged and paid for directly with her.

This is a charming apartment, with a nice deck, in a great neighborhood. Formiga was a terrific host, responding to our questions, giving us very useful advice re. Rio and Brazil, and even connecting us with a babysitter and a driver, for an out of town trip. Thanks!

I stayed in Formiga's place for two and a half weeks in June. The building is secure, with friendly staff and there are plenty of dining/shopping options right on your doorstep. I prefer Gavea to Ipanema/Copacabana as there are fewer tourists and more of a genuine "neighborhood" …
