Joao was a great host, had lots of information for us. Everything went well, We were happy to be at his place. Close to bus stop and restaurants. Our trip to waterfall was lovely. We even visited Paraguay - all went well. Joao speaks english well.
A estada em Foz foi muito boa e o João foi muito educado e atencioso.
O local estava bem arrumado, limpo e é uma área muito grande. Bem localizado, área segura, com opções de alimentação bem próximas à porta do apartamento.
Registro que utilizamos muito pouco do espaço disponível, mas ficamos 100% contemplados.
Joao's location is extremely convenient to access the bus station, grocery store, good restaurants and shops. He and his family are great hosts, including giving advice in multiple languages on transportation, activities, and food. His family owns a mattress store, so you are practically guaranteed a good night's sleep!
Our stay in foz do Iguaçu was gret thanks to João and his family. Joao is areally helpfull Nice and generous guy. The room is perfect, clean, aircon, Nice bathroom and kitchen. Highly recomendable. Close to the busstation and Everything Else you Will need like restaurants, supermarket and shoppingcenter.
Joao is a genuine legend- very funny, helpful, and hospitable. My family and I had a great time in Foz, and would love for Joao and his family to visit us soon.
The apartment itself is comfortable and has everything one would need (AC, balcony, two bathrooms and rooms, full kitchen, internet, etc.), in addition to being in a solid location, near both the bus terminal (access to Argentina, Paraguay, the falls, etc) and restaurants. Not one complaint, everything was positive. Obrigado!!!!
The number one place to be at Foz de Iguazu is at Joao´s.
The are the reasons;
- Joao Speaks english
- He wll give you a long good list of advices
- He also have a madras store, so you have the best sleep in Brazil:-)
- The place is 200 meter from the buscentral, which you will use a lot to go to the Falls both Brazilian and the Argentinian side, one is not enough. The bus number is 220 to the brazilian side and Catarast is the name (not Foz de Iguasu) Viisit to Paraguay is also a must, even though it is not cheap for gringos:-) leave cellphones and cameras at home
- Remember to take a trip to the free Zoo next to the busstation
- Remember to cash out $ or argentinian Pesos, because they dot take card in busses and at the entrance to the falls.
We stayed in Joao & Carole's lovely room for 4 nights. We really can't recommend their room enough to be honest. What's to like... 1, Joao & family are such lovely people, always eager to make our stay as enjoyable as possible while leaving us to our own devices at the same time. We received such a wonderful, warm welcome with lots of information on the area. We were invited to a family BBQ which gave us more of an opportunity to get to know them better while tasting some amazing food. Joao speaks English & Spanish too. They left grapes and a bottle of water in the fridge for us. You can tell they really care about their guests.!!! 2, The room itself is large, clean and comfortable with a very effective air conditioner (really needed in Iguazu). It has a wardrobe, TV & game console. There are 2 beds, a single and a queen. Joao & family own the mattress shop downstairs and this is evident in the room as the bed was the most comfortable we've slept on, in Brazil or in fact any other Airbnb we have stayed in. The bathroom has been recently refurbished and is bright, clean with a great shower. Outside the room there is a nice terrace looking over the street with a BBQ (which you can use if you wish). There is a kitchen / lounge with a nice big fridge. We didn't really use this space as the bedroom is a great size to spend time in. This kitchen / lounge area is used as an entrance by the family to their apartment upstairs. We never heard or really saw them so please don't let this put you off booking here. You really feel like you have the apartment to yourself. 3, The immediate area around the flat is great for food & drink (another reason we didn't use the kitchen area). Lots of cheap restaurants on Avenue Brazil (1 block away) that serve great food. Don't let their appearance stop you from eating there (plastic tables and chairs etc..) the food is great.! There is a supermarket nearby if you feel you want to cook. 4, Foz do Iguazu has so much to offer in the sight seeing department..! This is where this flat really comes in to its own..! The local bus station is a 5min walk away and you can get a bus to any of the attractions from there. Iguazu Falls (Brazil side), bird park & airport are a 30min journey away all for the cost of 2.55R's compared to the tours that can be bought from the tour operators in the streets that cost 45R's+. These organised tours take longer as they go round all the hotels picking everyone up & restrict you to certain times. So the local buses are much better. You can also get a bus to the dam, Argentina & Paraguay from the bus station which makes the flat the best...
Tivemos uma ótima experiência em Foz! O apartamento é muito bom, suíte bem grande com ar-condicionado bem potente(em Foz é muito necessário). Fica super bem localizado, bem perto de paradas de ônibus, ponto de táxi, você terá todo acesso que precisa para de deslocar a todos pontos da cidade.
O João e a Carol foram super legais, mesmo quando tivemos um imprevisto chegando algumas horas depois do combinado fomos muito bem recebidos. Eles nos orientaram em tudo que precisamos e nos forneceram mapas, folders de passeios e muitas dicas da cidade, de passeios turísticos e ida ao Paraguai à vida noturna.
We had a great experience in Foz! The apartment is very good, large room with a powerful air conditioner(you're gonna need it there). It's very well located, near bus stops and taxis, you'll have a very good access to every part of the (website hidden)ão and Carol were very helpful, even when we had an delay on arrival they were very nice. They gave a us a lot of tips, maps, folders and were always ready to help us. We would definitelly come back there!
I met João 15 years a go and since then he's a friend I always want around! He is a really nice, friendly and helpful person. He also has an amazing family (Carol and Mateus are the best!) and they've made a nice home for themselves and guests.
So if you have the chance to meet them and spend some time at their place, don't miss it! =)
