I work as a conference interpreter in Rio de Janeiro. I love to travel! I like dance, cinema, photography and visual arts in general.

Wonderful experience as always, highly recommended.
Alice's super cozy guest bedroom (with a separate entrance and it's own balcony with a really charming view), was a really lovely place to come back to after being out and about in Rio. It's a quick walk from the buzz and music and street life of Lapa down the hill, and also an easy jumping off point to take a stroll around lovely Santa Teresa. Alice and Antonio were super sweet and made everything easy, and super flexible about checking out late on our last day in town. Also their cats are very cute and precocious! Next time in Rio I will definitely try to stay here again if it's available. Two thumbs up!
Thanks so much! Hopefully when you come back the terrace in front of the room will be ready for you to enjoy as well! ;)
Everything was wonderful, thanks!
Muy buena estadía, Alice fue muy amable en todo sentido, siempre nos ayudó con datos turísticos, ubicaciones, etc. La habitación era tal cual lo describía en el perfil, muy hermosa y acogedora, además de tener una muy buena ubicación. 100% recomendable!
Gracias a ustedes! Voltem sempre ;)
A suite é ótima, muito bem equipada, com ar, ventiladores de teto, tv e ótimo aparelho de som. É silenciosa, de fundos, e dá privacidade para os hóspedes, já que é independente do resto da casa. Fui bem recebido pela Alice e Antônio, me sentia à vontade e não tive nenhum problema no mês inteiro que fiquei lá, com certeza uma ótima opção em Santa Teresa.
The apartment was great and Alice was an equally great host. The location is perfect for anyone wanting to visit Brazil, within walking distance or an easy cab ride of essentially everywhere you would want to go (Jardim Botanico, Leblon, Ipanema, etc.) The apartment itself is also great if you are planning a longer stay, or are a couple give the extra room with a desk. I wish I could have stayed there for months!
My adult son and I went to Rio for two weeks for the World Cup. I chose this apartment based on location and based on description/photos. Alice was very professional and courteous host. I was in communication with Alice long before we actually flew into Rio. She arranged for taxi driver to meet us at the airport which made it really easy for us since the driver knew where to go, and we did not have to deal with the language issue. Even a small gesture like this makes a huge difference to a tired traveler.
Apartment was exactly like Alice describes it in the profile. Upon my request, Alice has kindly agreed to add a more comfortable mattress in the second bedroom. So, it is important for people to communicate what they wish and maybe it can be arranged. Alice also has a maid service once a week, and she was very thorough.
The Jaccuzi bath tub in the apartment is fabulous and we used it some times after a long day of touring the city. Kitchen is great and having the window view while eating breakfast or quick lunch was great. The grocery store is quite nearby and there is a Sunday's open air market in front of the building.
Negatives: The student party in front of the building which can be loud, wi-fi connection not always working smoothly, and TV was not in the living room but in the second bedroom. Overall, these are minor issues and I give an "A" for overall experience. Thank You Alice!
Eu e meus amigos passamos o feriado de carnaval no apartamento da Alice. Adoramos a localização e a decoração. Muito charmoso e confortável. E a Alice é excelente anfitriã. Muito atenciosa. Recomendo!
This is a gem of an apartment and Alice was a great hostess. Tastefully decorated, and the kitchen and bathroom have been completely remodeled, so they're spacious and breezy with lots of natural light. The back windows of the apt look out onto a small courtyard with a mango tree, marmosets, and toucans. The plaza in front of the building is a popular hangout on Thurs and Sun nights, but the noise isn't too much of an issue since the bedroom faces the back. There's an antique market in the plaza on Sundays, and the Shopping Gavea is just steps from the building.
We had a wonderful time over new years eve in Rio at Alices flat. Her brother handed over the keys and even invited us to join him and a group of friends for celebrating new years at copacabana. The flat is wonderful, clean and in a very safe neighbourhood. Right outside the flat you will find very nice restaurants and perfect places to have a drink. I highly reccomend Alices flat and would definitely stay again with her next time I come to Rio! We felt like home during our stay at the clean and very very beautiful flat. Thank you!
Alice and her boyfriend are the best guest! Very clean, nice, respectful and have a great energy too! Anyone would be very happy to receive them. It was be a pleasure to meet them. The Studio be cared a lot. We hope to see you both again! Thanks and nice life!
Alice stayed at my apartment and seemed to be a lovely guest who was very sweet and polite and I had no complaints... until she left a review.
In the review, she complained that my place was very messy and untidy and that the room he stayed in was not a "room" at all because there is a curtain where a door would be and the walls stop about a foot from the ceiling.
Allow me to clarify:
-Everything about the room, including the fact that there is no curtain, and that this is my studio as well as my home, is detailed in the description, if you were to actually read it.
-The City of Chicago, as a governing body, legally defines that space as a room that is 9x10 ft.
-The "mess" was in my work area, separate from the room and designated only for that, which was untidy because, as I told her, I was in the middle of finals. She had only to walk by it.
-Her room and the bathroom which are the only things you are renting when you rent my space, were clean, tidy, and presentable.
So if this guest should stay with you in the future, mind that she is critical of your entire home and will review that and not just the place that you have listed where she is staying (which would be entirely inaccurate).
Alice is an extremely respectful and reliable person. She will take good care of anything that is not hers. I know her since high school and have traveled a lot with her.
Alice is awesome, and not only because she is my sister. Whether you're considering renting her your place or staying at her beautiful, charming (really) house in the hills of Santa Teresa, in Rio, you can rest assured your pad and yourself will be in the best possible company.
