We had a lovely stay with Mary. She was very hospitable, attentive and helpful. She showed us the best places to go in the area and always ensured we were happy and comfortable. Would 100% recommend!
Mary es la mejor anfitriona que se puede tener, es una persona que se ocupa de hacer tu estadía lo mas confortable posible. Pero lo mejor es que te hace sentir como en casa. Generosa, atenta, esta en los detalles, de gran corazón. Sin dudas, si vas a Rio la mejor opción es quedarte en lo de Mary.
Me and my fiancee Stayed at Marys' for a week and I believe we couldn't possibly get it any better.
To begin with, the house we lived in is, as Mary states herself, "an armchair in a Colosseum" in the center of the city there is a spot that you feel calm, you can sit back and relax. Mary also have a multiple of the best in the world routines and "rules" to keep up the great atmosphere that is in the house.
There is always fresh water in the fridge, coffee and tea waiting for guests whenever they get back home. In the house there is plenty of electronics to keep you cool, which makes a difference for "gringos" like us with Brazilian weather. In the house everything is clean, tidy and looks adorable.
But this is just the beginning, the biggest benefit of staying with Mary is Mary herself. You can sense a great time you will spend with her the second you meet her. Mary speaks multiple languages so there will never be a communication issue, she has visited a lot of countries and lived in various places so she understands other cultures very well. She is still curious about the world, so there is no possibility of not finding a common topic to spend the evening.
Mary will also tell you everything you need to know about Rio and Brazil in general, starting with Portuguese lessons, through a brief history on Rio to food & beverages curiosities in Brazil.
We had great time in Rio and we recommend staying with Mary to whomever wants to spend quality time in Brazil.
Mary is a wonderful, warm and welcoming host. It really felt like home entering her house. She was really helpful in organizing our stay and beside that she took her time for conversations with her guests. So it was also a really good cultural exchange.
The rooms and bathroom are really nice and clean, breakfast was delicious and the situation of the apartment is great, next to the beach, restaurants and metro station and still quite and peaceful in this busy city.
Thanks a lot Mary, for this wonderful stay with you in Rio!
