About Fatima Alves
I have lived in Laranjeiras, a very traditional neighborhood in Rio, most of my life. My husband - who is American - and I moved to Washington DC in 2015. I love my house. I used to host a lot of parties in the house. I also raised my daughter there. I decided recently that, since I do not travel very frequently to Rio anymore, I will rent out my house so others can enjoy it.

Beatiful back view. House clean, spacious and confortableble.
Owner's brother very welcoming, attentively and helpful.
When we arrived we found a nice cake and a 8 big bottles of water for each of us, (we were 8) sugar, salt, oil, dish soap and laundry detergent. Paper towels and plenty toilet paper, these was very nice and helpful due to that unfortunately the house was a bit far away from grocery stores, restaurants, tourist activities and beaches, but were able to move around with taxis. Having a car would have been ideal.
A couple of repairs were needed and were taking care of very quickly. Due to very heavy rain we were without electricity for over an hr, but were fast supplied with candles.
It would have been nice to have a second Tv upstairs.
Over all a great experience. Thanks again
