I am 40 years-old and I live in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
I work as a Portuguese-English / English-Portuguese translator.
really nice people, all was clean and perfect, no trouble at all ..
Katia stayed in my apartment in 2011 and she proved to be a model guest :) Now I'm a practicing AirBnB host and I'm sure Katia will be a great host too - with her charming smile and professional attitude. Since she's also a fellow freelance translator, I have an additional reason to recommend Katia (translators tend to be very open-minded people who are very knowledgeable about the world around us).
I am a hostess at Airbnb and I know how a respectful person makes a good guest. I have known Katia for more than 20 years and can easily say you will not only enjoy her presence but she will take very good care of your space. Katia is well-traveled and somebody great to have around as I experienced in the many times I had her over in my place back in Brazil. I hope I will be able to host her and her lovely daughter some time soon in Vancouver.
