Lovely place to stay with even more lovely host!!
The apartment is located excellent, just a 100m walk to the beach and close to the Copacabana. The house has a high security standard, elevators and is surrounded by shops, bars, restaurants. The guestroom is door to door with the owners bedroom and her cat. Both were most of the time at home during our stay. Even the place is so close to beach, it has been required to remove every grain of sand before entering the room. There were also some funny kitchen orders, that we didn t understand at all. We thought the `b` stands for breakfast, but there were none. Anyway, at least we had a good time and Neila was supporting us in several ways, which was very important for our round trip. And sitting in the evening with her on the beautiful balcony was interesting and really cool. So it is in all sense of meaning a special place, that we had enjoyed and we still appreciate Naila`s support and her over-subtle humor.
Absolutely perfect! Location, space, hospitality of our host, everything!
Rio de Janeiro was the last leg for us after a 2 week holiday through the south of Brazil. We arrived at Nayla's apartment tired and starting to miss our home comforts. Fortunately Nayla and her apartment changed this for us.
The apartment can definitely be described as upmarket, spacious and full of eccentricities, making the experience one in a million. Not to mention that it is a 5 minute walk to the beach!. She immediately welcomed us with a lovely light lunch, making us feel like it is our one home. She gave us 1st class ideas and tips on what to do in RIO and made plenty of phone calls on our behalf when we tried to book hangliding. We couldn't ask for anything better!
Naila was such an amazing host for us! Even before arriving she emailed us tips on what to bring and the cheapest/fastest way to get to her flat. Upon arriving I was amazed at the beautiful apartment Naila has, decorated with her own artwork and surrounded by a beautiful quiet neighborhood! Her flat is incredibly spacious, and has a comfortable homely feel to it.
My friend and I had decided to take a last minute trip to South America, meaning we hadn't planned much, but Naila came up with a ton of ideas for us and even rode the bus/taxi with us to send us on our adventures!
This was my first Airbnb experience, and Naila's apartment was much more comfortable than most of the 5 start hotels I've stayed at around the world! She is an amazing host with many wonderful stories, and is an amazing cook as well.
I would strongly encourage any visitor of Rio to stay with Naila and her cat Bibi, getting to meet her and stay at her place was definitely one of the highlights of my trip!
I stayed at Naila’s apartment for 6 days and I cannot imagine staying in a better place in Rio.
Leme is a great neighborhood. It’s very safe, central, and close to all the city has to offer with the advantage of being in a quieter part of the beach.
Naila’s apartment is beautiful, bright and the air flows nicely. She keeps the place very clean with the help of a cleaning lady who comes daily.
The room has a beach view and it was great to wake up every morning overlooking the horizon.
Naila is an excellent host. She helped me with directions, suggested places to go and she even kept a variety of fresh organic fruits and salad in the fridge for us.
After my stay I can say that Naila is my new friend in Rio.
I've stayed at Nayla's place twice and I have to say, it feels like being home away from home. The apartment is very clean, spacious, cozy and full of light. What you see in the pictures is definitely what you get. The room is quiet and private, the linen and towels are brand new and the kitchen is very handy. Nayla is a very sweet host, making you immediately feel like you're part of the family. The neighborhood of Leme (right at the beginning of Copacabana) is very nice, practical and you're just a one-minute walk from the quietest spot on the beach. It's perfect!
Nayla let me stay in her flat even if we had never met before. We had a friend in common. She made my stay in Rio very easy and nice. It would have been a very different and less rich experience without her help. She had plenty of good tips and advices to help me to make my way through Rio's sights. I felt like I was staying at a friend's. She was so nice that I felt immediately comfortable in this splendid flat. I felt so lucky to have this unique chance to stay in such a nice place with such a nice host! It is spacious and very well located in Copacabana. It is very rare in Rio to have this kind of huge space in such a charming and beautiful building. The flat is decorated with art pieces and objects delicately selected with her fantastic artistic taste, so one really feels in a special place. Additionally the little shy kitty is a lovely presence around. I would stay there again if I had a chance and I highly recommend the place.
hospedei-me em sua residência por ocasião de congresso médico no mês de maio e fiquei muito maravilhado pelo seu apartamento.trata-se de um belo imóvel, com espaços amplos e pé direito alto, de um lado a vista para o mar e de outro a mata do morro.situado entre o Leme e Copacabana, é muito bem servido de metro, onibus e está defronte a praia.minha estadia foi muito agradável, pois Naila é muito receptiva e recebe muito bem.recomendo a todos que procuram conforto,facilidade de acesso e localização.
Naila, my friend for the last 36 years and a former UN colleague, has a fascinating personality. Extremely committed to whatever she does, being it to cross the Atlantic Ocean from Brazil to France in a sailboat or to leave her nice apartment in Rio to join a UN mission in Haiti or to work with refugees in the Sahara. Her sense of solidarity is unlimited and is a friend that you can rely on in all circumstances.
Few years ago, I spent one month in her beautiful apartment and was delighted to wake up seeing the mountain from my room’s balcony and check how the sea was looking like from the other window.
Naila’s place is also a kind of art gallery with her amazing paintings allover.
Um conhecido em comum me indicou a Naila e sua casa para que eu passasse uma temporada no Rio. Fui muito bem acolhida: Naila foi muito simpática e prestativa. Adorei o quarto, que é bastante espaçoso e tem vista para o mar, e o apartamento é lindo, bem arejado. Sem contar que a localização é ótima! Enfim, fui muitíssimo bem recebida e recomendo a estadia!
Naila is a more than a very good friend, and we know each other for more than 25 years. Naila is calm, compassionate, intelligent and she has a lot of very interesting stories to tell. She is full of kindness and integrity and is very respectful regarding people, nature and animals. She is the best host you can have and will do everything to make you feel nice and comfortable at her house! Her apartment is very spacious and charming, the most beautiful of Copacabana! Very well located, in the quietest area of Copacabana,near the beach and the mountain, with nice views and all you will need is to enjoy your stay in Rio de Janeiro.
