I love traveling around the world and often fly to the US to visit my children who now live in Los Angeles. My hobbies are interior design and fashion, and for that reason Leblon is my favorite place to be in Rio!

This is a lovely apartment in a wonderful, safe area of Rio. We thoroughly enjoyed the neighborhood shops, restaurants, bars, and lovely views from all the windows. You can't beat being only two blocks away from the beach! Leblon is a lively, friendly, fun area, which we thoroughly enjoyed. A grocery store is conveniently located right across the street.
The apartment is beautiful and we especially appreciated the Nespresso machine! The beds and linens were very comfortable. The TV and wireless connection were nice to come home to after a long day of hanging on the beach and touring the city. It was so much nicer and more relaxing than staying in a hotel. Diana, the maid, was charming and even though we didn't speak the same language, she was friendly and helpful.
We stayed in this apartment for 25 days during the World Cup.
LOCATION: The apartment is located in quite possibly the perfect location in the perfect neighborhood. Close to the beach, restaurants, bars, shops, and across from a grocery store.
DIANA: As other reviewers have said, Diana is amazing. She's incredibly friendly, hard-working, and helpful. She took great care of us and we enjoyed seeing her Mon, Wed, and Friday.
BEDS: The beds were comfy, not too firm, not too plush. There is a full size and queen sized bed. The bedding and towels were clean and plentiful.
SHOWERS: Hot water is available in the showers, but not the sink faucets. A note that the showers have electrical heaters, so you are unable to control the exact temperature of the showers. You can choose from 1 of 3 settings (hot, warm, or cold).
TV: The TV is modern and quite large, and there is also an Apple TV. If TV is important to you (as it was for us during the World Cup!), you may want to confirm the location of the TV in the apt and seating arrangements with the host as it differed from the listing for us.
INTERNET: We were unable to get WiFi in the living room and bedrooms. If this is important to you, you may want to confirm with the host.
KITCHEN: We had to supplement the cooking supplies/pots/pans available to us. If this is important to you, you may want to confirm with the host.
The location is unbelievable!! We had a great time in Fortaleza and one of the main reasons was because we stayed at Fatima's apartment. When I go back to fortaleza I know where to stay.
Everything worked well from the air conditioning to the water heaters. Was also safe with a gate and doorman etc. Just steps from the beach. Clean place in a great location.
The Apartment was nice and clean.
Fatima's place was wonderful and surpassed our expectations in every way! It was spacious, in an excellent location, and we had all the support we needed from the doormen, sindica, and very timely communication from Fatima. Overall a great airbnb experience, comparing to other friends who stayed in hotels during the same period, wouldn't rather be anywhere else!
Fatima is amazing and her apartment is wonderful. My friends and I are traveling Brazil for the World Cup and it was very nice having different rooms and multiple showers. Her place is nice and well kept. It has a full kitchen and with fridge and stove. It is very close to the beach and the night life. The door guards did not speak enligh, but they were all friendly and helped my group find our way around and get a taxi. This place was perfect! There is also internet which is nice for communicating with friends back home.
O apartamente é exatamente como nas fotos.Estava limpo e organizado. É super bem localizado e os porteiros do prédio são super simpáticos, nos indicaram um taxista super legal.
Tivemos um probleminha com o chuveiro, mas não demorou para o problema ser solucionado.
Amei nossa estadia em Fortaleza!!!Recomendo!!!
The apartment is right in the middle of all the action great places to eat and drink..The .neighborhood is middle class and up.its on a busy street but it helps when you depend on a cab. the doormen of the building are just great, polite kind and willing to help you on the drop of a dime. I didn't meet Fatima but iracema the lady who welcomed me was kind and helpful..The apartment itself was big and very clean.The Bed Linens were fresh crisp and clean! Ac in the two main bedrooms but (NO) AC in the livingroom..kitchen and bathrooms were a bit out dated but clean and functional...for the price you really can't go wrong..only complaint would be No airconditioning in the living and dinning room,it gets really hot in Fortaleza so anymore than 5 people in that living room and your cooking...but I still recommend this apartment for safety... day and night and also for location you just can't beat it....great value for your money. I stayed for 8 days in june and would come back to this apartment.. no problem. feel safe here and book it. its a great deal! Fortaleza I love you! abracos!
We enjoyed our stay and recommend Fatima's apartment very highly to other visitors to Fortaleza. The apartment is clean, roomy, comfortable, and located only one street away from a safe and attractive beach. The supply of towels was generous. This rental was priced fairly and represents excellent value. Obrigado!
