I'm a Tv producer from Rio who thinks the world is too interesting to have deep roots :)
El vecindario fue la primer linda sorpresa. Se encuentra en una calle cerrada al tránsito, cubierta de árboles de gran altura y niños jugando tranquilamente. Hermoso lugar que, además, permite estacionar el auto con libertad.
El apartamento, tal como se observa en las fotos, es luminoso, bien ventilado y decorado con muy buen gusto, colores, musica y literatura. Todo funciono perfectamente; TV, Internet Wifi, y ofrece todo lo que se necesita para una confortable estadía, desde cocinar hasta lavar la ropa.
Tanto kiko como Luana fueron excelentes anfitriones, dejándonos espacio para que nos sintiéramos como en casa; Compartiendo todo lo que necesitamos y siempre bien predispuestos a ayudarnos en todo. Excelentes recomendando lugares para conocer, escuchar buena samba, y aconsejando en las compras.
SUPER RECOMENDABLE y siempre con ganas de volver...
Our stay here was so welcoming and relaxing. The couple is very friendly and the place is bright, clean and very comfortable. The location is walking distance from restaurants and cinemas, and with easy access to all of Rio's best sights. For me, it was way better than a stay at any hotel!
You share the apartment with Luana and Kiko. They're a very nice couple and gave us lots of advice for our first days in Rio. They even shared their dinner with us when we arrived after 14 hours of flight :-)
The house is located in a quiet and safe side street, close to buses that go virtually anywhere in Rio. We enjoyed having our breakfast in the courtyard with the blue wall. As you might guess from the pictures the apartment is on the ground floor, so don't expect any great views while inside (the Christ statue is visible from the street, though) ;-)
The en-suite bedroom is well conceived with a wardrobe, a comfy bed and a nice hot shower. It's a bit dark though and located next to your hosts' bedroom - which you might want to consider if you're a couple seeking privacy. Luana and Kiko get up quite early for work which was ok for us since our biological clock was 5 hours onwards anyhow.
What else? The wireless internet works faultlessly. And oh, do ask Kiko to play Samba for you on his guitar.
Ótimo apartamento! Totalmente de acordo com a descrição do anúncio. Bem localizado, numa área segura repleta de restaurantes, supermercados, bancos, farmácias... além de ser próximo do Corcovado.
O apartamento é amplo, bem ventilado, limpo, silencioso e bem organizado. Apesar de não estar próximo da praia é fácil chegar à Copacabana ou Ipanema de ônibus ou taxi.
A Luana foi uma excelente anfitriã sempre nos auxiliando nas nossas dúvidas.
Adoramos a estadia. Super recomendo!!
Una linda familia, muy agradables y gentiles. Nos comunicamos muy bien, los horarios fueron exactos y cumplidos.
El departamento quedo perfectamente limpio y sin ninguna queja, todo exelente.
Espero tenerlos de nuevo en Argentina.
Response from Luana:
Seguro que volvemos y, como te dije, para un mes!
Luana and her companion are very nice people and we have been very pleased to have them as guests in our home. Even if we did not meet personally, we had an instantaneous e-mail contact. They left the apartment clean and tidy. We really recommend Luana to other hosts!
Luana and Kiko are warm, friendly and polite, it was a pleasure to host them. They have treated my place like their own, leaving it tidy and clean. Highly recommended and always happy to have them back as my guests!
Luana e Kiko sono uan coppia davvero piacevole. Sono stati a casa mia solo un giorno e una notte, ma sono due persone gentili, cordiali, amabili e attente. E' stato un piacere ospitarli (Luana e Kiko are very nice couple. They staied only one day and one night in my appartement, but they are two pleasant, kind. cprdial, amiable and careful people. It's a pleasure entertain them)
Nice people who I would not hesitate to recommend to any host. We hope to see you again some day.
Luana is simply the best roomie anyone could have. She (email hidden), very caring, that always tries to help the guests to feel like they are in their own home... and most of the time she succeeds... Great cooker, great producer and fun to hang with. Another good quality she has is to always know the good thing going on in the city, and to have friends everywhere!
Her place in Botafogo is great, spacious, comfortable and perfectly located in a tranquility oasis in Rio's south side. The apartment in Santa Terese is in the heart of cultural area in Rio. Perfect, especially for carnaval time!
This girl is the most amazing host you will ever have in any trip! Warm, witty and know everything about the city, I mean EVERYTHING. I'm not writing this because she's a very close friend! I also had the chance to stay in this apartment few times and it's just like it's announced: pretty, spacious, clean and quiet. The neighborhood is definitely a plus, I lived in this part of Botafogo many years and I miss the vibrant atmosphere. Don't hesitate, book with Lulu.
Luana é uma pessoa adoravel, linda, inteligente e com um senso de humor muito apurado. E uma pessoa do bem, e muito criativa , Bem vinda Luana.
