My name is Adriaan. I am the Director of Online Real Estate Rentals aka Rio de Janeiro Apartments Rental . My company is based in the Netherlands and specialized in short-term rentals worldwide, intermediating between owners and renters. For Airbnb, for Rio de Janeiro and for Curacao we have selected a group of excellent quality, well maintained and centrally located apartments & villas from reliable owners. The local staff in Rio de Janeiro speaks English, Portuguese, Spanish and German fluently. The local staff in Curacao speaks English, Dutch and Spanish fluently.
For all the apartments and villas offered, we do not allow pets (no dogs, no cats, or any other animal or bird) and we do not allow smoking inside (it is allowed on the veranda/balcony or terrace).
I am more than happy to assist you in your search and vacation in Rio & Curacao!
Ps. This Airbnb account was previously owned by StartBrazil of which in the middle of July 2014 my company has taken over the assets. So any referal to Carlos, Claudia and others are not applicable to me in person.
