I am a 32 year old guy living with my spouse in a modern penthouse in Vila Olímpia, working for a tech company and willing to rent my room to interesting people that are coming to visit São Paulo either for work, culture or fun.

I had a great stay with Joao Carlos. The apartment was very nice, in a great building and location. I felt very comfortable in the apartment (with my own room and bathroom) and safe in the neighborhood, which is close to many great areas. João's English is very good and he was very helpful at suggesting places I should check out in the city. He made me feel right at home and was very flexible when I requested an extension of my stay. I would certainly recommend his place for anyone traveling to São Paulo!
Having stayed in over 10 other spots in México, Colombia, and Brasil, we were the most comfortable and spoiled at João's place. Though we arrived mid-day while João was at work, the door man immediately recognized we were João's guest and gave us a key along with a welcoming note. Even so, Marcel was home to let us in and show us around the place. We felt welcomed from the very beginning and knew that we would be taken care of if there were ever a problem. As João and Marcel work long hours at work, we usually had the place to ourselves, but were always able to communicate via e-mail and iMessage. We did, however, have a few chances to chat and explore parts of the city with João and Marcel. They gave several restaurant recommendations, a full list of places and areas to visit, as well as other travel advice.
The place is even better in person than in the pictures! We were very impressed by the view that we had on all sides of the apartment, but what excited us most was the kitchen, which not only has sleek and modern appliances, but everything works perfectly and there really is nothing that João doesn't have in order to cook even the most complex meals. It truly was a joy to have a full kitchen to use whenever we needed, and we have never had better access to fresh veggies, fruits, and anything else we craved. There is a wonderful grocery store less than a 5-minute walk away and another spot for fruit and veggies just two blocks from there. The Sunday market just down the block is also not to be missed.
Even with all our luggage, the two of us managed well with the room and bathroom, and usually spent our time in the common spaces, where the furniture is very comfy and offers a perfect place to read.
We always felt safe to walk around the neighborhood, both day and night, and were only about a 15-minute walk from the largest park in the city, where we spent a lot of our time.
Even if we are not looking for a place to stay, the next time we find ourselves in São Paulo, we will at least come for a visit. We appreciate João for opening up his home to us for 5 full weeks and highly recommend this place to anyone visiting the city.
Excelente hóspede: tranquilo, quieto e gentil.
Excellent guest very respectful of the apartment and left the bedroom spotless
They are welcome back any time
Joao es un excelente huésped. El y sus amigos fueron muy respetuosos siempre y dejaron la habitación en perfectas condiciones, fue muy agradable concerlos.
Joao was a very respectful guest and considerate. He has a demanding Job which sees him working hard and he was visiting a lot with local friends, therefore he was not at the house all that much. He has a very interesting position with a local company and travels the world. I highly recommend him as a guest and as an articulate, interesting person.
João was a wonderful guest! He was busy during his short stay so we didn’t see him a lot but when we did, he was pleasant and easy going.
João was easy to host, we’d be happy to have him stay with us again and would absolutely recommend him to others.
Joao stayed at my place for 3 nights. It was his first time to use Airbnb and I'm glad that he liked my place. He is trustworthy and left my place in good shape.
I stayed with João for several weeks in 2011. He was a gracious host and I was very happy to have a place to stay in São Paulo! But it was so much more than that -- João's home was by far the most beautiful of all that I stayed in! It boasts views of the city and the decor is absolutely outstanding. If I remember correctly, his father is an architect, and it really shows!
