I'm Brazilian that loves to travel and stay in touch with travellers. I love nature and a good chat at a bar. I like meeting people from around the world.
O apartamento do Gilberto é muito gostoso e silencioso. Localização ótima . Ele também foi super atencioso e com certeza será meu favorito nas próximas viagens !!!
We stayed for over a month and had a great time. The apartment is perfectly located with great restaurants in walking distance. The apartment is very cute, and Gilberto was always available to help. We will definitely consider staying there again in the future.
Great apartment. Gilberto was extremely responsive and flexible with timing. Overall, the apt made our stay in Rio very enjoyable!
Muy lindo el departamento, en buen estado y limpio. La ubicacion es muy buena y Gilberto ha sido muy atento para que estemos comodos. Volveria a hospedarme alli!
La casa è molto bella, accogliente e pulita.
Molto gentile e flessibile anche sull'orario di in e out.
Perfetta la location per girare la città.
Il primo giorno abbiamo avuto problemi con internet che sono stati tempestivamente risolti dall'host.
If you are looking for a lovely apartment with great character and in one of the best areas in Rio, look no further – this is the place for you.
The flat is located in Leblon, generally regarded as the best area in Rio (if, like me, you're from London, think a tropical Chelsea but with a beach and beautiful people and you'll get the picture). It's located just a two-minute walk from the beach, there's a supermarket even closer and there are some great restaurants nearby too that are well worth checking out (Gilberto provides you with a helpful list of the places he recommends). Ipanema, with its fashionable crowd is just a short hop away.
The apartment itself has loads of character, with parquet floors, tasteful furniture and plenty of space. It feels homely without feeling twee. There are two good sized bedrooms, a well equipped kitchen, super shower room and a lounge with TV and good wi fi connection.
Gilberto is a great bloke to deal with – ultra helpful, kind and the sort of person who will go the extra mile to make sure you have the best possible experience – he even sorted out the intricate Rio Municipal Bike Hire Scheme for us, so we could cycle around the lake.
All in all, a great experience and one that I'd recommend wholeheartedly.
excelente, es importante destacar a Gilberto, su disponibilidad, buena atención, disposiciòn para resolver cosas. super recomendable
Foi muito bom! Tudo limpo, tudo que queria por perto, anfitrião, um gentleman!
GIlberto's place is a charming one in a beautiful Jardins area. Great location, nice design, the kitchen is tiny, but has everything you need to prepare simply meals/ breakfast/ salad. The way the bedroom is situated upstairs, I found it the best place to rest after tiring day, very calm and cozy.
Excellent location and easy key exchange. Room looks exactly as pictured. Room with sofabed opens up to patio area. Sofabed is not a junk mattress, it's surprisingly firm and comfortable. Nice surprise to have an Apple TV to play music over. Super clean apartment and very comfortable. Wifi router is surprisingly weak. I would recommend this place d.
Response from Gilberto:
Thank you David, yes it is a real good mattress over the sofa bed, that's why it is very confortable, I will see router signal as you told me.
Gilberto was a perfect guest, friendly, respectful of the house and its rules and friendly!
was a real pleasure to know and be able to sleep in my apartment.
Gilberto and his girlfriend have been guests at Suite Frangipane.
We met them, they are very nice people and I hope to meet them again, to visit Brazil and Rio de janeiro.
they left the flat in perfect condition!
Ciao, Fiammetta Maria
Gilberto was a wonderful guest. When he arrived, we spent about trips and other subjects.He is a very organized person,and left the room as if it hadn’t been used at all.I highly recommend Gilberto to anyone who is looking for a nice guest.He promised to keep in touch,and I really hope to see him again in the near future.
Gilberto is a great friend and a very nice person. Very easy going, owns a beautiful apartment in the best area of Rio. Like to travel, enjoy life and meet new people. I knew Airbnb through Gilberto and could help him to host some visitors while he was traveling and I am very grateful because I met really nice people, such as Luke O'Shea and his friend Andrew. I highly recommend his place!
I was working in Sao Paulo for a time and Gilberto's flat there was perfect, really well located, with all the services needed for a comfortable stay. He took care of all the things needed like a really fast internet access, printer, cable, etc. All the things I needed to have a confortable workplace.
Gilberto was really helpful recommending me some places to visit in Sao Paulo, like restaurants, parks, etc. I hope to find the flat available when I'll be back to SP in future trips.
