Malu was a wonderful host and her place was great; better than the pictures, I thought. The room is very comfortable and the breakfast is delicious. Malu was always trying to make my stay better - by suggesting places to see and eat, or offering anything she could to help me feel better when I was feeling sick. And of course, Ipanema is a great neighborhood, and Malu's place is walking distance to everything you need including the beach, but very quiet at night. I'll stay with Malu again next time I get back to Rio.
Malu has a wonderful apartment and is a great host. The guest bedroom is large and comfortable, and opens up to a great balcony and hammock. Malu's recommendations were very helpful and the traditional Brazilian breakfast that she provided was delicious. If I come back to Rio, I will stay with Malu again.
Thanks, Mark, you're very kind.
A brilliant place to stay! Great location and beautiful flat. Malu was an excellent host and gave really good recommendations for places to visit which made me feel at home in Rio very quickly. Her breakfasts and juices were also delicious. Highly recommended!
Thank you Emma, you are very kind.
The host Malu provided me with a warm welcome, and detail tip of where to go and eat. The two dogs are nice and fun too. The room and living room are just as described, with a good air conditioning and strong wifi at room. The location is within a comfortable walking distance to bars, restaurants, Beach, and even metro stations.
Thank you Vincent, you are very kind.
La casa de Malu es muy hermosa. Tal como aparece en las fotos.
Ella y sus perros son un amor. Nos cuidó mucho los días que nos quedamos ahí y nos recomendó cosas para hacer cada día.
Gracias Loreley , eres muy amable.
Malu is a very nice host. She has a beautiful apartment in a very great location. there are lots of shops and restaurants around. The area is very lively with one of the most beautiful beach very close : Ipanema.
The apartment is clean and cosy. Malu is always willing to give you good tips to enjoy the most of Rio and her breakfasts are very good and healthy ! I definitely recommand her.
Thank you Charlotte, you are very kind.
A casa da Malu era tudo que minha irmã e eu (website hidden) localização perfeita entre a Lagoa e a praia. Sua casa é linda e limpa. Ela foi muito prestativa conosco, quando a minha irmã disse que manga era sua fruta favorita, Malu fez uma vitamina deliciosa com a fruta para o café da manhã seguinte e sua atenção aos detalhes não acabou aí, ela sempre deixava o ar condicionado de nosso quarto ligado para nosso conforto quando voltávamos da praia. Foi um final de semana maravilhoso!!!
Era sempre um prazer conversar com Malu e escutar suas dicas preciosas sobre a cidade. Vou sentir saudade da sua leveza, a típica carioca com alma de artista.
Recomendo de olhos fechados sua casa, pois tivemos uma ótima experiência!!!
Malu’s home was everything we had hoped. Perfectly located between the lagoon and the beach. Her home is beautiful and clean. She was always very helpful with us, when my sister said that mango was her favorite fruit, Malu made a delicious smoothie with mango for breakfast the next morning and here attention to details did not end there, she always left the air conditioning in our room on to our comfort when we returned from the beach. It was a wonderful weekend!!!
It was always a pleasure to talk to Malu and listen to your precious tips about the city. I will miss her, the typical carioca with an artist soul.
I highly recommend her place because we had a great experience!!!
Muito obrigada Vi, adorei te conhecer e espero que possa voltar. Beijos.
Malu's place is in a lovely (and super safe) part of Ipanema between the Lagoa and the beach (posto 9)--and a short walk to the subway. The room was comfortable and bright (though there were blackout curtains too), and the dogs so sweet and well-behaved. Malu was a very thoughtful host and shared her favorite places with me in that special way that is infinitely superior to any guidebook.
The only negative was that the a/c broke down my first night and the repairman couldn't come fix it before I left, so the heat and mosquitos weren't awesome, though the room has a good ceiling fan and another standing fan if you need it. (Malu also offered me her bedroom with its working a/c.)
We are so lucky to have stayed with Malu in Rio. My mom and I stayed with her for 4 days and couldn't imagine having done it any other way. Malu was a stellar host, who really went above and beyond so we had the best vacation in Rio. From the beginning she was very quick to respond to my messages and answer all my questions. She was super accommodating to wait for us in the apartment when we arrived, and from that moment we felt like we were staying at a family friends house. She made excellent (and I really mean excellent) breakfasts every morning with fresh juices (each day a new fabulous Brasilian fruit) and hand-picked Brasilian products, including my beloved pao de queijo (fresh, hot and goey) and queijo de minas. She deftly accommodated my mother's dietary needs and made sure she always had something she could eat.
Malu also has the BEST recommendations, I recommend following them, because as a true Carioca she knows the city inside and out. With Malus guidance we had amazing meals and were able to hit all the must-see tourist spots without waiting in line.
The location of the apartment was perfect. In beautiful ipanema, close to the subway and meters from lagoa. As a runner I loved being close to the running trail around the lagoa, it's a perfect 8km loop to do.
The apartment is lovingly decorated and very comfortable. We felt very at home and we wished we could stay longer. We definitely would love to return and stay with Malu and wholeheartedly recommend it to anyone else. Thanks Malu for everything!
Thank you, Davin and give my hug to your lovely mom.
Staying with Malu is a great experience especially if you have never been to Rio. She very graciously points out places to go and helps make sure you are getting to where you need to go. Her location is excellent, close to the beach, Lagoa and lots of commerce. The room is very comfortable and spacious with a good bed. Her homemade breakfasts are very good, too. If you like dogs, you must stay with her because her dogs are great pets! I recommend staying with Malu for a very good Rio experience.
Thanks Mark, you are a special guest. You will always be welcome.
Malu was a fantastic guest! Clean, respectful of house rules and a pleasure to have around, thanks for the great stay! We recommend you to anyone hosting, enjoy tour travels!

Looking for a nice and clean flat with an artistic spirit accompanied by a truly helpful Carioca? Then I strongly recommend to book Malus flat. We got our own room with bathroom, as well as breakfast.She and her dogs are fantastic hosts. She took her spare time to show us "her" Rio and we were so glad that she helped / supported us in some emergency situations, like booking enquiries.The flat itself is conveniently located, 10 min walk to Ipanema beach.Lots of restaurants and bars are within proximity. Without a doubt we would stay with her again, and Malu you are heartily welcome at our place! Thank you for the great time!
Malu é das melhores pessoas que conheci em toda minha vida. Inteligente, talentosa, além de muito bela. E ainda tem um apartamento deslumbrante e muito bem localizado em Ipanema
