  • Great place in perfect location. Mariana was very responding to our emails, and her father is the kindest and most flexible man you can think of. Highly recommended!!

  • Our time in Rio de Janeiro at Marianas appartment was great.
    It was a little unfortunate, that she wasn't there, as we had some questions about Rio and Tamas only speaks very little english.
    But he and his mom, who live upstairs are very nice people and we got everything organized, so it was no problem at all.
    The location is very nice, it is not very central, but we just loved staying in Urca, as it is quiet, but still in walking distance or at least in a distance where taking a cab is affordable, of all important parts of the city. (Copacabana, Botafogo,...)
    Sunrise from the balcony was absolutely amazing and the proximity to the sugarloaf is very nice if you want to go up at sunset.
    The room itself is not that big, but as we could also use the living room, it was off a decent size.

  • Primeira vez que alugo uma casa pela Airbnb, e posso dizer que foi uma ótima experiencia! Eu e os meus amigos tivemos uma ótima estadia na casa da Mariana. O seu pai (Tamas) e sua avó, nos receberam de braços abertos e nos deram bastante privacidade. Ótima casa, com um visual espetacular! Obrigado e até a próxima!

  • El Recanto de Urca es preciosísimo! La habitación es muy linda, despertás mirando la copa de los árboles y si te asomás está el mar. La casa está en impecable estado. Hay una terraza espectacular con una vista inigualable de Río, las noches ahí son de lo más tranquilas y amenas. El barrio nos encantó y muy cerquita hay colectivos y pasan taxis para moverse por la ciudad. De todas maneras lo mejor de todo fue Tamas! Nos hizo sentir como en casa, fue súper amable y nos ayudó en todo. La verdad pasamos una estadía hermosa y mucho tuvo que ver su simpático anfitrión! Sin duda volveremos allí cada vez que visitemos Río!

  • We booked one day before and the apartment was not available. However Mariana was amazing and arranged so that we could stay in apartment below which is not shown in the photos. Her father who we saw was great. He offered us a bottle of proeseco on arrival. A super kind man who helped us with everything we needed. The area Urca is a very serene and quiet neighbourhood is Rio. Its really safe and picturesque just below Sugar loaf. I saw the apartment above briefly it has an amazing view from the roof terrace.
