Hello! My name is Ylza and I really hope you enjoy your time in Rio de Janeiro!
Ylza was very helpful and supportive as we arrived in Brazil with missing baggage.She directed us to places for quick shopping and called airlines on our behalf to check the status, since we could not talk in Portuguese.
The apartment location is very convenient. 2 mins walk to the beach and a short walk to the bus stop.
She was ready to take us in at odd hours due to our flight timings.
Oh and I have to confess I am in love with her cat Branca.
The apartment of Ylza is perfectly located, charming and spacious, with all amenities operating just fine and with a hostess most interesting who is very happy to share tips and great personal stories especially of Rio! Thank you Ylza for hosting us even for a weekend only.
We stayed in Yulza´s apartment for more than a week with my two girls ageing 11 and 7. Choosing this accomodation was the best decision made during our stay since we did not face any issues and hassles and everything was so easy to reach. The apartment is very close to the famous beach Copacabana, so it made it convenient to visit the beach very often. Yulza was so kind to introduce us to the surroundings, good restaurants, parks and attractions so we received much more than we expected such as my girls were allowed to play with her cats and dog "blue", received a free ride in her bike and borrowed the colours for the paint. We were also very grateful of the fast internet connection at the apartment which made it easy to communicate with family and friends.
We would highly recommend Yulza´s apartment to others.
We had a fantastic experience staying with Ylza! She's a really nice and helpful person with a great sense of humour. The apartment has a great location (2 mins from the Copacabana beach), and it's very nicely decorated and clean. The rooms are great too. The pets (the dog Blue and 2 cats) are lovely, super calm and cute. Since she has 3 rooms, you're likely to meet other people staying with her that I think makes the experience even better. All in all I would absolutely recommend staying with Ylza!!!
Ylza and her apartment are amazing! She is a wonderful and kindful host. The apartment is very stylish and cool. Our room was big, nice and clean. Close to the apartment there are many restaurants, supermarkets and shops. And Copacabana beach is only 2 minutes away!!
We would like to thank Ylza for the beautiful time we spent there. We felt very comfortable and we would return to her!
Response from Ylza:
Thank you, dear!
You know that you and jessica are welcome here any time! Come back to Copa!
Hugs from Blue, me and Branca!
Meine Freundin und ich waren Dezember 13 eine Woche bei Ylza in Copacabana. Ylza ist eine sehr gute Gastgeberin, die Wohnung liegt erstklassig fast am Strand und die Zimmer sind ruhig,sauber und geraumig. Das Apartment mit den 2 Katzen und dem Hund "Blue" gibt dem ganzen Bohemien-Ambiente Copacabanas noch eine besondere individuelle Note. Auf jeden Fall empfehlenswert !
Eu gostaria de primeiramente agradecer por toda receptividade desta linda mulher Ilza, fomos realmente tratados com muito respeito e carinho, uma casa muito aconchegante e organizada com belos animais, em especial o cãozinho Blue, que traz muita alegria na casa.
Recomendamos com muita convicção, a todos que desejam uma estadia perto da praia em Copacabana , voces vão adorar..
Um grande abraço pra você Ilza,obrigada!

Yiza's apartment is extremely well located and in a safe area with it's own security. Yiza herself is very friendly and helpful, she even dropped my backpack off at the next place I was staying, so I didn't have to carry it. She has a lovely little dog and two cats and her place is clean and comfortable. I would recommend staying at her place to my friends. Thanks for everything Yiza
I spent 5 days in Rio with Ylza. The apartment is clean and theres enough space for everybody. Very close to the beach and within a safe area. Ylza had good advices what to do in Rio and helped me out to get my mobile working. A good place to stay.
Ylza was a very nice and helpful host. The flat is great, neat and beautiful, the Location (only 2 minutes to the Copacabana-Beach) couldn't be better! Totally recommendable!
Ylza is an above and beyond host, giving the "feel at home" in Rio. I was advised what to see, where locals shop, eat and where the Hip Music are happening, The specious clean secured Apt. half a block to Copacabana Beach, few blocks from the Metro and an interesting walking distance (look for the Graffiti Art) to Ipanema Sunset... Sundays have an open Market in the small Park across the street. Got to mention Blue the friendly dog and the Cats that come for a pat, and the Coffey and Breakfast in the cozy kitchen.
I was there in one room and two Women in another without crowding each other. the washing machine was wonderful after long trip.
Ylza was a guest really nice, polite, respectful and clean and she loves the animals, I'm sorry not to have had time for to accompany her to visit the city, I'm sure it would be a fun experience with her. I think she's a special person who deserves to be better known.
recommended to the 100%
