The experience was wonderful. Urca is a beautiful neighbourhood and the apartment had all amenities.
Jussara was very helpful in accomodating my late reservation request. The location is very close to the beach and there is a great pizza shop/snack bar across the street.
The apartment is very simple but has everything required. I found the area a little too noisy for my preferences but this is not specific to this apartment, and more to Copacabana in general.
Great apartment. Owner is the best. Good location, very quite and right in front of the metro station
Jurassa is a great host. She did everything to make me more comfortable. The place is in favela so it might a bit noisy sometimes. I did not feel unsecured inside the favela. For those who want to see carioca's life it is a great place to stay.
Jussara is extremely helpful and always willing to provide recommendations with things to do and places to visit in the city! A package I had delivered there arrived earlier than expected and she was nice enough to hold it for me until my arrival.
The place was about what I expected. It is clean and big enough to fit 2-3 people. The best part is the location, 5 min walk from Copacabana and 10 min walk from Ipanema so that's very convenient.
The host replied to our questions promptly, and was nice enough to meet us at the bottom of the favela to show us the way up, as it would have been too difficult for us to find the apartment on our own in our opinion. The apartment was clean enough and cozy enough for my friend and I. We did not have an issue with anyone in the favela and even attended a local party on the weekend. The only issue we had with the apartment was that we had to take a moto taxi up and down, as there are a lot of stairs and a bit of a steep road in order to reach it.
I stayed in this room during the world cup 2014 and i must say it was a great experience.
The room is located in the pacified favela of Pavao-Pavaozhino and is totally safe 24/7. Is about 8min walking distance to Copacabana Beach POSTO5 and lots of nearby restaurants (delicious food) and Juice & Salgados shops (equally delicious).
Everything worked as listed, and was provided with clean towels as needed.
Jussara was super friendly and gave me great tips on where to eat delicious food (thanks for La Carioca restaurant tip). She also suggested few places to visit when looking for a fun night of dancing and mingle with locals along some caipirinhas.
Living this this favela gave me a shocking experience that i will never forget. At first i was little nervous because of the looking feel of the area but after few nights and socializing with some locals i realized that it was totally safe. Lots of people walking around 24/7, kids playing around, and many local parties (specially when Brazil played).
Overall it was an awesome experience that i will never forget. Highly recommend using Jussara as a host if you are looking for a unique experience in Rio de Janeiro.
I liked this place very very very much. Spent really good time in Rio. The appartment was clean and cosy. It was about 5-8 minutes from the beach. Jussara is very friendly. She took me to the beach. Also she went to the botanic garden with me. I really enjoyed both visiting Rio and spending time with Jussara and her friends.
The place is in Pavao-Pavaozhino, and the experience we had was heart touching. Jussara is a grea person, very kind and down to earth, actually treated us like family. Everything in the apartment listed works, and if you are lucky you could get a real Carioca meal from the host or friends. The wifi works and communication with the host was perfect.
I actually did not want to leave Rio or Pavao.
The beaches are close by, and you get a real life view of how people live in a peaceful favella.
I would stay again and I reccomend the place.
Jussara is great!
Jussara is a very friendly and helpful host. She communicates very well in English both in person and by email. She showed me the area around the apartment and helped to arrange everything I needed.
Jussara's apartment is in favela Pavao that is spread on a steep hill between Itapema and Copacabana. While accommodation in a favela might not be for everybody, location of the apartment is very good. It takes only about 5 minutes of walking from the apartment to Copacabana beach (Posto 5). I felt safe walking to her apartment late at night and have not experienced any problems. It was very nice of Jussara to introduce me to several of her friends and take me to a birthday party in the favela.
Jussara's apartment does not have any view but is clean. The bed is comfortable and located in Jussara's kitchen. I could use the fridge and the kitchen appliances including a blender to make shakes from fresh fruit.
The apartment is very nice residential and luminous. The location is excellent very close to everything including the Beach, Lagoa, Bars, Restaurans and charming Shops.
Jussara is a very kind person wtih attention to details. She helped me a lot with everything I needed during my stay in Rio de Janeiro.
