“Our favourite apartment in Brazil”
Reviewed 3 February 2016 for a stay in December 2015

Odette is an amazing,friendly & warm host, we throughly enjoyed our stay at her apartment! The location was central to many places we wanted to visit, also was very clean & well supplied with all we needed for our stay!
The view from the window is amazing we sat by the window daily.
I will definitely stay at this apartment again, thanks again Odette!

“Property overstated in the description - 5 stars, NEVER!”
Reviewed 20 December 2014 for a stay in December 2014

First of all the good points:
1- The hosts were very warm and friendly - they provided us with a starter pack of bread, cheese and ham. We have had the same lovely service at other apartments in other countries too.
2-The apartment was clean, light and bright.

Now the bad points:
1-under "details" in the description, there was a cooker, grille and toaster listed. In reality it is as follows: a tiny electrical bench top "oven" and a sandwich toaster. This does not add up to the appliances listed!!
2-A freezer is listed. there is a freezer in the fridge and not a separate one.
3-Satelite TV. Could not get any channels working.
4-Mountain view!! There is a hill behind the apartment that couldn't be more than 100m high!
5-The "table" was tiny. A flimsy metal unit of about 450mm diameter.
6-The bed was SO hard! it was reported before (April 2014) and nothing has been done.
7-The basin in the bathroom is tiny an almost useless.
8-No hot water in the kitchen.
9-The apartment is located in a bad neighbourhood.
10-It is too small for 2 people.

Odette is such a warm and easygoing host. I loved the apt. So cute and cozy. I stayed for a week, vacation and visiting my boyfriend. The view from my window was refreshing. The day I arrieved Odette did a walk through with me and even had the fridge ready with essentials and ham and cheese for sandwiches! She made sure I had a map and pointed out the popular areas. The wifi is great! The location is most convenient from all the hot spots and SDU. The place is calm and the shower is perfect after a hot day. The only thing i would change was the bed. It was hard ha-ha. But nothing extra cushioning can't fix. I will definetly stay again! My go-to spot in Rio! ;)

Hello, Susan,
It was great to have you here with us. Thank you for your words in the comment and also for having taken good care of my studio. You will always be welcome and have already provided an extra cushioning. When we go back and find a softer bed. Good luck to you.
My best regards,
