Excellent, just 1 block to ipanema beach, 1 block to 24 hours supermarket and 1 block to metro. Georgeana is really great I asked for a special chair to work all day in the place and she bring it to me in less than half an hour.

The host was nice by (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) and over the internet but I never met her. I met her mother when I arrived who was polite and gave me few tips. I needed some electrical outlet adapter and hostess told me to go buy it myself, then she told me to go ask the front desk person for one. Mind you, these people rent this place to foreigns and therefore they should know better that we need adapters in order to be able to use our computer and electrical equipments, etc. But I guess they do not care. There was no iron and Iron board and I texted her to inquire about it and she sent me an Iron but no iron board, so what was the point? Too cheap to buy a iron board, I guess! Air conditioner needs freon It was horrible, very noisy and I spent 6 nights basically awake because of a loud banging noise coming from the air conditioner and from the window. I got some cardboard, I folded it then placed it in between the glasses of the windows and that way I was able to make some of that loud noise to stop, but just a little, and it still was making a lot of noise. The air conditioner barely cooled down the bedroom. When you go to any other part of the house you feels the humidity and starts sweating immediately. The entrance is very hot and besides being tiny with space for only 1 person in is separated from the bedroom by a very lengthy hallway making it impossible to be cooled by the defective air conditioner. There wasn't any ceiling fan in the entrance which I think it might had been helpful. No garbage can bags No paper towels No tissue paper Tiny and thin bath towel so you dry you face and keeps you behind wet or vice versa. Geeee!! So, cheap! Bathroom was OK and functional except that the shower door is very hard to open and close. It seem like the tracks need some work and oil. The bed is horrible, very uncomfortable and the linen was stained, most likely from body fluids. They should have thrown them away and replace by new ones, it was really disgusting and to be honest nor even in Africa I had such type of linen. Lastly, they were nice enough to live 1 bottle of water in the refrigerator for me. The kitchen is tiny, no toaster, no coffee, no coffee filters, no paper towel. The utensils were so poor that I felt like I was at Salvation Arm at the Elderly's day discount sale counter. Again, I spent time in Africa, in very poor countries, and even there the utensils were not as bad. The price was very expensive for this uncomfortable cubicle. After being here a couple of days I had multiple offers to rent places in a much better condition and with lots more to offer for about...

Response from Georgeana & Paulino:
What Patrick is not mentioning in his review is how he tried to bargain and establish the price for MY apartment for a month stay; finally, I did really make a discount to him but not the absurd demanded price when he disappeared for a few days I understood that he was not interested in my best apartment. After a few days he came back and made a direct reservation not for the first apartment but for our low cost apartment that I accepted, my big mistake. Just when we accepted his reservation, he told us that instead of one, they would be three people on the apartment!! We accepted that it could be two, but not three people, for obvious space reasons. He apparently was very understanding with that. He tried to extend his stay during the check-in offering an “off airbnb” agreement to my mother and he apparently didn't mind but once again this seemed to frustrate him when she rejected the offer. From that moment on everything seemed to be nice and great with neither complaints nor problems and apparently very grateful behavior, all the way an act. And that's why we made such a nice review. Without going further, all our other 75 reviews contradicts his untrustworthy and shabby review. I'll take a suggestion and leave a note on our brand new coffee machine that for ecological reasons does not use filter coffee, and how to make toasts on our brand new sandwich maker. By the way, is true that the air conditioned was a bit noisy, It took 3 hours to change it, something that could be done on the first day, if he had wished let us know but the plan was otherwise...

Georgeana and Paulino were great hosts, very helpful and friendly, just a quick call away, with a few tips up their sleeves about what to see and when to go, and they were quick to react to any issues in person (some of the WiFi equipment broke shortly after we arrived, but they acted promptly to give us an alternative until they could fix it the next day). The only thing they weren't able to fix was the fickle weather during our stay ;-) The apartment's location is very nice for walking in both Ipanema and Cocacabana, just two blocks from the beach and even closer to the metro and a bus hub at General Osório Square, in a good neighbourhood.

Georgeana and Paulino were very helpful, responsive, caring and went out of their way to make sure we had what we needed. The apartment was located in a fantastic area: minutes from the beach, from a grocery store, great restaurants and cafes. The building also has a gate access and 24/7 guard, so we felt very safe staying there. The apartment was also clean and cozy - we didn't need much space because we barely spent any time in the apartment, other than to shower and sleep. The AC worked great, as well as the rest of the appliances. Overall, it was an amazing trip and we can't wait to get back to Rio!

Paulino and Georgeana were super helpful and easy to deal with. The collection of the key was easy and the convenience of having a concierge was nice. The appartment is very close to Ipanema beach and shops, so the perfect location for my vacation.

Georgeana & Paulino User ProfileGeorgeana & Paulino is a superhost.

Era o ano de 1940, nosso avô acreditou em Ipanema. Construiu o Edifício “16 de Outubro", onde era a antiga casa de praia de seus pais. Em 2000 minha mãe decidiu reformar seus apartamentos e adaptarlos aos novos tempos e receber viajantes.
Nossos apartamentos são o resultado de um trabalho de quatro gerações, o ultimo degrau de todo este trabalho é o meu junto a meu marido, como Host no Airbnb.

Para receber viajantes, acredito que é importante ser viajante.
Em Londres conheci meu marido e fiz muitos amigos, em Madrid nasceram meus filhos e fiz grandes amigos.

Depois de 14 anos na Espanha, de volta ao Brasil, junto à minha mãe fazemos o possível para que nossos apartamentos sejam uma solida base para curtir o Rio.

Os apartamentos estão todos no mesmo prédio, com características parecidas e mesmos serviços. Diferenciam-se pela decoração e alguns chegam a ser um pouco maiores, o que justifica uma diferença de preços.

Contamos também com uma pequena equipe de pessoas maravilhosas que nos ajudam na manutenção, limpeza, organização o que nos permite oferecer um serviço de qualidade.
