Enjoy your stay in Jardim Botânico, one of the hippest, most charming and safest neighborhoods in Rio. Christ the Redeemer views. 3 blocks from the lagoon and easy acess to the beach.
83 m²/893 sq.ft. Fully renovated, new kitchen and bathrooms. This is my home, which means it's a comfortable place that I take good care of. The apartment faces the back of the block and is very, very quiet. Fully equipped kitchen, dishwasher, laundry, wi-fi, cable, iPod station, air conditioning in the bedroom, large fan in the living room. 2 full bathrooms. 24-hour doorman, elevator. Great view of the mountain and the Christ the Redeemer monument from the bedroom. Accomodates up to 3 guests (I have one queen size bed in the bedroom and one full size sofa-bed in the living room).
You'll have access to the whole apartment.
Interaction with guests
A friend will be around to give you all support you may need. I'll be out of town, but availabe by cell phone.
This is a smoking- and pet-free apartment. Please remember this is my home and I'm really very jealous of my stuff, so I'd expect my guests to take the same care of the place as they would of their own.
No parties, loud music or any other noise that could bother the neighbors, any time of the day (it's a small, quiet building). No extra guests.
I'm a "carioca," which means I'm from Rio de Janeiro (our just Rio for the locals). I love traveling, and, in the past few years (after getting a taste of the East in my first time in Turkey), especially to distant places. My profile picture was taken in Bangkok, where I finally went in 2012.
I've lived in New York for 2 years and I left my heart there - although I missed the beach so much... I'm a lawyer turned into translator and mediator, and I'm so happy to be my own boss now.
I like to feel at home when I travel. To take my time, walk around, sit down for a coffe or a glass of wine and watch the locals go by. In big cities, I try to stay at least one week. There are quite a few cities where I think I could easily live - from Buenos Aires to Paris, from Rome to Istanbul; and of course from Rio to New York.
I have some foreign friends and I love to meet people from different countries and cultures, and to show them a little bit of my dear city when they're around. And when I'm the tourist, there's nothing better than knowing locals who can show me the real thing.
