Great location, elegant apartment, wonderful breakfasts provided my host. But the most important thing – Silvia Lustosa herself, who has a heart of gold. I would not hesitate to recommend this homestay to anyone who wishes to have a haven in Rio, in one of the city's most interesting districts.
My Partner and I had an amazing 8 night stay with Silvia! She really made our Rio stay extra special. She was so accomodating and helpful with all that is to know in Rio. The location was perfect in Ipanema, her apartment was beautiful and spacious. We will miss her and hope to stay with her again one day. Thank you Silvia!
Very Sweet and caring hostess.
It was one of our best stays during our 12 months worldtrip! Silvia is a wonderful and lovely person. She made us everyday a big breakfast with everthing we love to eat. She also showed us around in Rio and took us to placed where the normal tourist are not allowed to go (for example: Yachtclub, Jockeyclub ... ). Silvia also helped us to organize sightseeing tours. We had a wonderful time with her and we highly recommand her on homestay. We thank Silvia so much for everything.
