Pros: great neighborhood, safe, surrounded by supermarkets, bars, fancy restaurants, bakeries, and bus stops, besides the botanical garden a few steps away. The house is stylish and well equiped, clean sheets were provided. Despite being a village house, we had privacy.
Cons: the first floor doesn't have air cond, just a fan, which may not suffy during Rio summer intense heat.
The place sure is quirky, which is why we chose it. It's very close to the Botanical Gardens, which are magnificent and well worth a visit! Botika is a nice guy and luckily was able to arrange for a fan for the downstairs bedroom, which does not have A/C and gets very hot. The house is tiny and only has windows on 1 side, thus does not air through. We were a bit taken aback by the fact that cats normally live in the house and whilst we were able and allowed to keep them out, those among us with allergies, still suffered the consequences.
