Great host and property.
We had a wonderful stay in Cartagena this past week. We wish we could have stayed longer! Al, Marce and Cecilia's hospitality was very welcoming! The apartment is organized, clean and at a perfect spot by the beach. No complains at all! We were received by our host with fruits and flowers that we appreciated the gesture! The area is safe at all times and the building's staff very polite and helpful!! Congratulations to them! We just hope we can manage to return to Al's apartment in another opportunity. Great location and hospitality. Thank you all!! Claudia and Luiz from Brazil
Great apartment, great location and very well equipped! Will definitely come back.
The apartment is gorgeous, and very comfortable. Everything was well organized. The host is quick to respond to all needs and requests. We loved out stay and hope to be back very soon.
I had a wonderful experience staying at Al's condo. This was my first trip to Brazil and came across a lot of hosts on Airbnb in Rio who were increasingly their prices significantly after I made a booking request. Al did not do that and was 100% honest which goes a long way, especially to someone not familiar with the country. The Condo itself is beautiful and the beds are extremely comfortable. Clearly the mattresses are very high end. There are 2 outside balconies completely with chairs and patio furniture which are enclosed from the outside world. The building is also extremely secure and well protected with double locked doors and security cameras. The Wifi worked great. There are 2 TVs although I didn't use them. There is a washing machine in the condo, however I learned that clothes dryers are almost non-existent in Brazil, so be prepared to leave your laundry to dry manually for 12-24 hours. Al was available during our stay and was very responsive when we asked for additional blankets. The AC was super cold and controlled individually in each room. Overall I had a great experience and Al is an excellent host. I highly recommend his property!!!
The apartment is very clean, spacious. We found everything we need. It is very well located in Ipanema in a quiet street. It is 10 minutes from the beach and 5 minutes from restaurants, supermarket and shops.
We love the Al apartment's.
Al answers on the application very quickly. It was easy to communicate with him.
L'appartement de Al est très bien agencé, très beau, assez grand pour 4 personnes et vous y trouverez tout ce dont vous avez besoin. Il est situé dans une rue calme d'Ipanema, ce qui est vraiment agréable. Il est à 10 minutes de la plage et à 5 minutes des rues commerçantes (supermarché, restaurants ...). Nous étions 3 et nous étions très satisfait de notre location dans cet appartement. Al est disponible et il répond à vos requêtes très rapidement. C'était très facile de communiquer avec Al.
Everything worked out great. Easy to find.
I stayed in this lovely apartment for three and a half weeks and Al couldn't have been more welcoming or helpful. He promptly answered any questions I had, such as best beach, restaurants, nearest supermarket etc graciously. The apartment was comfortable, safe and in a great location.
It was a lovely home while I was in Cartagena. I cannot recommend it enough.
El departamento es muy bonito, nuevo y en perfecto estado. Muy cómodo y exactamente como se ve en las fotografías. Es muy tranquilo.
Al es muy atento y responde todas las inquietudes en minutos, haciendo una estadía muy agradable.
El barrio es simplemente perfecto, una calle muy tranquila y bonita, pero a metros de lo mejor y más movido de Ipanema.
Sin dudas volvería!!!
Al and Marce were FANTASTIC hosts. The apartment was as described on the listing and it was everything we were looking for. It is a beautiful apartment, has a great view of the beach and water where you walk right out onto the beach from the building, and was well equipped so that we could cook a meal for four on multiple occasions. The building doormen were friendly and let us up to the apartment as well as provided advice/recommendations throughout the course of our stay.
Al and Marce were incredibly accessible. They approved our request to book within hours and ensured that there would be someone at the apartment to let us in, show us around, and give us the keys when we arrived. Whenever we had questions about the apartment, they responded very quickly and were kind enough to check in with us once we arrived to make sure that we had gotten situated and that everything was going well.
The seamless experience definitely contributed to overall great experience we had in Cartagena. We would highly recommend the apartment to anyone else visiting the city and would certainly love to stay there again if our travels bring us back.
Friendly, clean and quiet. I dont have any complains of these guests. They left the apartment perfect.
Simpaticos, calmos e limpinhos. Nao temos nenhuma reclamaçao sobre os hospedes, eles deixaram o apartamento em perfeito estado! Nos indicamos!
Al stayed at my apt in ipanema for a week with his girlfriend. Communication before check in was great, during the stay they were extremely nice and they left the apartment very clean and neat. A very nice couple from colombia, very educated and nice. Definitely I would host again.
