This apartment is well-stocked and located within close proximity to bars, restaurants, the metro, and grocery stores. If you are on a budget and want a place to be able to come and go to as you please, this is not a bad place. If you are looking for a place where you can count on people being around for drinks and music several nights a week, this is a good place. If you are hoping for a place that is quiet or people who respect that you are working or sleeping, this is definitely not your place.
I did not find out until arriving in Brazil that Murillo was working in Rio, and it is instead his younger sister hosting. I was supposed to be at the apartment for a month, but I had to rent another apartment for a weekend in the middle and I gladly paid three times the rent to move out early to another apartment due largely to the music/noise and inexplicable mood swings I experienced from the hostess that made me feel unwelcome in the home. She was nevertheless very helpful any time that I had questions about the area and the city.
I know several people had their reservations messed up through airbnb while I was staying there, and I would recommend getting in touch with Murillo and confirming your reservation before counting on it being booked. He was very prompt and friendly in our communications, and I imagine that would avoid any confusion.
I thought that the back room with private bathroom was worth the price for a short stay for someone perhaps with a more flexible mindset. Note that Internet access does not reach the back bedroom, but does reach some of the other bedrooms that are available.
Murillo´s apartment is great! Spacious, with all the equiment you need, very well furnitured, sunny and really well located! I definitly recommend this place!
I'm just coming back from 2 months at Murillo's place, and i recommend it to everyone, unless you are too worried about nostalgia once you leave! Murillo and his sister Marilia are very pleasant and fun people. They like to enjoy life in Sao Paulo, and also like to share this with Airbnb hosts. The location is great, just few blocks from Vila Madelana. Staying there is almost too much fun ;-) Go for it!
I had such a great time staying with Murillo and Marilla! Plus it is very close to a lot of cool bars in Pinheiros and Vila Madalena. I definitely recommend this apartment to anyone who wants to stay in Sao Paulo. .
Murillo was an amazing host. We really felt like we were part of a family in his house. The home was very comfortable and close to so many nice places, bars and restaurants. Murillo made it a fun and sociable experience!
Response from Murillo:
Thank you for the kind words, you girls were also two extremely nice guests.
Hope you come back soon to finish your projects.
i really enjoyed so much staying here. it was an amazing room with a big window overlooking trees, beautiful hard wood floor, shelf space. i was in heaven. amazing house, really nice people.
neighborhood is totally convenient and local to lots of cool places to eat, fresh juice, nightlife, etc..
only regret with this is that i moved out already! hoping to come back in a couple weeks !!!
It is one of those houses where you feel at home from the beginning. Totally comfortable, well equipped apartment with the amazingly friendly atmosphere created by Murillo, his cat and other people renting the rooms there. Murillo is a perfect host, who is ready to help and is easy to deal with. He is very nice, interesting and really trustworthy. I'd definitely like to come back one day. Thx
You’re going to be hard-pressed to find a cooler apartment, presided over by a more gracious host, than at this location. The apartment is comfortable, well-equipped, and perfectly located within walking distance of metro, supermarkets, countless restaurants, and the always hip Vila Madalena. Add to that the presence of the uber-friendly Murillo (and his sofa-cat Mermão) and you have a consummate Paulista experience. 5 out of 5 stars.
Great place in great location considering Sao Paulo. I arrived to the apartment and went straight out with Murillo and a friend of his. Very chilled guys, friendly and helpful. Highly recommended.
Nice experience. Very well located apartment. Murillo was a serious and helpful host.
Murillo is the best guess someone can have!!! He will always be welcome!!!! Left the apartment very tidy and cleaned!!! Hope to see you soon, Murillo!!!!
Having Ralf was such a great pleasure. He is very polite and respectfull. I did not have any trouble at all. Hope he liked staying in my place in Rio. Looking foward to have him as a client any time he needs a place to stay.
Murillo uma otima pessoa pessoa muito comunicativo eu o receberei sempre em meus Bungalows!
I've had the distinct pleasure of being introduced to Murillo last year by a German friend of mine who was living with him. Since then we became really good friends and now I can say how much he added up to my life. He's very commited, easy going, has a very diverse background, is surrounded by great and fun people (like himself). 100% recommended!
