My trip to Rio de Janeiro was my first experience with Airbnb. Ylza was wonderful and made me feel welcome, meeting me at the door and allowing me time to get settled before showing me around her wonderful home. Ylza was extremely helpful in directing me to various locations, such as where to go to get to the Christ the Redeemer statue and other tourist features. Her direction and advice made for a wonderful experience and prevented wasted time and money with tourist traps/tour guides.....as I met some travelers that were sucked into a tour that wasted their time and money. Ylza's apartment was very near to the beach and I would recommend it whether you are wanting to visit all over Rio de Janeiro, or just plan on spending a relaxing time at the beach. Ylza is a wonderful host and I would highly recommend her to anyone.
Oh, thank you. I hope that you come back one day.
Ylza is a great host, she is warm, fun and energetic. Equally nice are her pets - two cats and one dog, they are friendly and cute. I will certainly miss them. The room itself is comfortable, clean, lightly decorated and spacious. I travel alone, but this room would perfectly accommodate two as well. The location of this house is great too, it is literally 50 meters from the copacabana beach, and is also very close to the main street ( Av. Nossa Senhora de Copacabana) where you will find mostly anything you need, from soco stores to bus stops to supermarkets. Everything is within walking distance and I feel very safe in this neighborhood. I would recommend Ylza's place to anyone looking to stay in Copa. I know she also has some properties in Ipanema, which is a more upscale and less touristy neighborhood, so you may as well check out her other listings.
Hey, Ho Man! Thank you. We loved you!
Now I'm here, alone again!
Huugs. Be in toucht when you back!
Ylza fue una muy buena anfitriona ayudándonos con todo lo que necesitamos. El departamento es muy amplio y limpio. No tenemos ninguna queja para hacer , pasamos unos días muy lindos en Rio .
My stay by Copacabana beach was terrific. Ylza is really cool she knows about good coffee and good music. I was made to feel very welcolme from the start and despite turning up far too early, she really went out of her way to accommodate me regardless.
This property is her family home and it show because its looked after very well and is a beautiful place to stay. On top of this, the location is excellent to truely take advantage of Rio's wonders, with the beach just 30 seconds away and a Metro station that can be reached within 5 mins. Av. Nossa Sra. de Copacabana even closer providing everything you will need in banks, shops, good restuarants, supermarkets, Etc.
The time and care that Ylza provided really made all the difference to my stay in the city, so I cant thank her enough for this!!
I could go on but i wont :)
So sweet from you, Rob. I loved your stay here. Like an old friend. Come back one day before I move out!
¡Qué hermosa experiencia en Copacabana!! Nunca olvidaremos este año nuevo, en parte gracias a nuestra anfitriona, Yiza, y a sus ayudantes: la gata Branca, el perro Blú y el otro gatito de la casa. Todos nos recibieron con los brazos abiertos. Además, Yiza fue un paso más allá y nos ayudo a organizar en su casa una cena íntima de año nuevo junto a otra pareja amiga de visita en Rio. ¿Qué mais puedo decir? Eso es dar amor. En los aspectos prácticos: la casa es muy grande (como la habitación) y por lo tanto muy cómoda. Se siente privacidad. Es fresca (y con el calor anormal que pasamos, eso se puso a prueba!) y silenciosa, por lo que dormir es realmente reparador. Tiene una cocina bien provista y Yiza gentilmente nos compartió su heladera para enfriar bebidas y guardar víveres. Yiza se encarga de que todo este súper limpio TODO el tiempo, incluso cuando hay más huéspedes en la casa (si es el caso ni se enterarán a menos que quieran, porque repito: la casa es grande). Recomiendo de corazón la estadía en este hogar fuera de casa, a tan solo una cuadra del mar y la praia. Conveniente y cercano en todos los sentidos posibles. Gracias Yiza!!
Ylza's place is great being in a safe locked apartment with a doorman and a one minute walk from Copacabana beach! It's really nice there, the two cats and dog are really cute, and Ylza is a very lively and welcoming host :)
Short review -- Our stay at Ylza's place was excellent. Stay here. It's an absolute bargain, and a guaranteed great time. Central location and excellent host. I felt at home.
Detailed review --
Perfect location - one block from the beach and about 2 blocks from a metro station and grocery store. Taxis all around, great bars close by, for the nights you don't feel like hanging out in Ipanema and Leblon, which are close as well.
We stayed at Ylza's place for about 9 days and 6 nights - 2 nights we stayed in Salvador, but continued to rent the room to store our belongings, etc. When we were there, we kept our door open as if it was our home, which I don't normally do because I'm not very social, but it felt like home. Ylza's home is extremely clean and well kept. She has 3 pets - an adorable Yorkie named Blu and 2 cats - Branca and I can't remember the other one's name. All the pets are friendly. You wouldn't know there were pets living there because there was no fur anywhere - not on the furniture, the floor, bedding, nowhere. The pets were also very, very friendly and social if you wanted them to be. If you didn't like pets as some of the other guests did not, Ylza did her best to keep them away from you.
Ylza was the best host. We missed her when we went to Salvador. She was friendly, engaging, and knowledgable. She helped us save hours by advising the best way to the Cristo statue. She was available whenever we needed her, and very responsive to emails. I think she reads people quite well and can be quiet flexible to your style. So if you aren't very social, she leaves you be, but if you are social, she's a fantastic to be around. My friend and I felt at home in her home. We will definitely return to her place if we choose to return to Rio.
Stay here. It's an absolute bargain, and a guaranteed great time.
Ylza's Apt is at the most convenient location be Copacabana beach. The apt is a block away from the shops/eating joints/sucos. The apt is very spacious and is kept clean. I would highly recommend the place if you are planning on staying close to Copacabana.
My friend and I stayed for 4 nights. The location was great, the place was very clean and very good security. Our host was actively always trying to help us in any way she could. She was very friendly and helpful. Great experience.
Ylza was a very good host. We enjoyed staying at her place. Her house was clean and very cozy. It was overall a good experience.
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.
