Great reliable property owner, recommended.

  • 5 of 5

It was a pleasure to make a business with Gerard, the property owner. He is very friendly, trustworthy, not stingy. He made me feel welcome. All in all it was an easy transaction. I think when you rent a private stay a mutual trust is the most important factor. Especially when you do not speak the local language, you may feel a bit stressed out when things don't work out. Well, in this particular case you can trust Gerard 100%.

In regards to the apartment itself, it's as described. Everything worked properly, the building is well located, 15 min walk to Gen Osorio metro station, 3 min to Ave Atlantica. The building is secured. There was enough towels and sheets provided. The apartment was clean.

Just a word of caution in general: pack your ear plugs. It has nothing to do with this particular property; this is how it is in South America I suppose - I had the same experience in Buenos Aires - the sound proofing is not up to Western standards. I met another tourist who stayed in the upscale expensive hotel on Ave Atlantica in the room facing the ocean. She could hear a sound of gentle ocean waves at night. So if you are a light sleeper traveling to South America - be ready.

All in all, highly recommended. Obrigado Gerard!

Got the job done.

  • 4 of 5

Gerard was a very responsive host.The apartment was very close to the beach, buses, subway, and there is always a taxi parked outside. The unit was a little smaller than expected and the kitchen very tiny. The size may be normal for the area. Probably better suited for 2-3 people. We had 4 and it was a little tight. Everything we needed was within a block or two including markets and restaurants.

Atendeu a todas as expectativas

  • 5 of 5

Passamos três dias muito agradáveis no imóvel. Quando chegamos a chave já estava com o porteiro, devidamente avisado e ciente dos nossos nomes.

Apartamento bem localizado (coração da zona sul), limpo, aconchegante. Roupas de cama, banho e travesseiros disponíveis e em ótimo estado. Destaque ao proprietário atencioso e disponível, que, inclusive, deixou alguns bolinhos e kit hotelaria de cortesia. Recomendo!

Ótimo custo X beneficio

  • 5 of 5

Ocupamos este imóvel do dia 16 ao dia 22/08/2016, semana final das Olimpíadas, sendo que uma colega nossa de Palmas/TO ocupou o mesmo desde o dia 09/08. Segue nossa avaliação:

1. Pontos Negativos:

a) Aspecto exterior e áreas comuns do prédio: Prédio mais antigo, com área exterior e áreas comuns em um estado de conservação não tão bom.

b) Sistema de aquecimento de água a gás: Este não é propriamente um ponto negativo, mas só uma observação visto que o cheiro do banheiro, e próprio sistema de acionamento, é diferente do padrão mais utilizado, que é o elétrico.

c) Ar-condicionado: Achamos que o nível de ruído estava acima do normal.

2. Pontos Positivos:

a) Localização: Perfeita! Próximo a praia, forte de copacabana, pequenos mercados, padarias e próximo aos restaurantes mais tops da zona litorânea de Copacabana e Ipanema. Próximo também a estação de Metrô de General Osório (cerca de 500 metros).

b) Estado de conservação do apartamento: Muito embora o condomínio não apresente uma situação de conservação satisfatória (vide pontos negativos), a situação dé conservação do aparmamento é muito boa. Ideal para duas pessoas, mas, com certeza, comporta 4. Apartamento também conta com estrutura básica de uma casa normal, com secador, ferro de passar roupas, fogão, microondas, frigobar e utensílios de cozinha, além de boas roupas de cama e banho. Também, é disponibilizado um filtro de água, à temperatura natural.

c) Gentileza dos funcionários do condomínio: Todos eles muito gentis e prestativos.

d) Gentileza do dono do apartamento: O Gérard, dono do apartamento, é uma pessoa muito confiável, amistosa e prestativa. Tudo o que negociamos foi cumprido a risca, e sempre se demonstrou solícito com as nossos questionamentos. Inclusive, como informei no início deste comentário, indiquei o apartamento para uns colegas de Palmas que se hospedaram até antes do que eu e minha esposa.

Owner's Response: Que alegria constatar que a experiência desses hóspedes tão gentis foi 100% positiva! Eu é que agradeço por ter tido hóspedes tão educados! O apartamento, na melhor localização do Rio, é realmente projetado para conferir o máximo de conforto e acolhimento aos viajantes que vêm desfrutar a Cidade Olímpica, inclusive com ar-refrigerado digital e com o aquecimento do chuveiro pela melhor tecnologia de calefação, que dispensa a mistura de águas para a temperatura ideal, mediante o moderno e seguro uso de gás natural! Tudo é pensado e preparado para que os hóspedes se sintam à vontade, com absoluta confiança em todos os aspectos de sua locação. O edifício é tipicamente tradicional do melhor de Copacabana e ainda vem passando por reformas para servir cada vez melhor aos visitantes! As portas estarão sempre abertas! Um enorme abraço!
