Interaction with guests
Guests will share common areas of the apartment with a Canadian couple as well as an older person and her caregiver. We hope to receive foreign tourists, executives, medical residents at Santa Casa, and students of Mackenzie, FAAP or Sta. Casa, which are about 15 minutes walking distance away. We speak English, Portuguese and a little French, Spanish and Italian. The owners love to receive guests and help them in everything possible, providing useful information and tips regarding the neighborhood and the city.
The building is very well located in the heart of Higienópolis. Our apartment is located in a neighbourhood that is both central and residential.
There is a bus stop 250 feet from the front of the building, with several bus lines that go to different areas of the city, and a taxi stand 130 feet away. Two Subway stations and the famous Avenida Paulista are a 20 minutes walk from the apartment (but in different directions!).
Other things to note
Our neighbourhood is one of the safest in the city, but we recommend to foreign visitors not to wear expensive looking jewelry in the street not to use their mobile devices in public places.
Our building has a gated entrance (as do most buildings in the city) and a doorman always on duty to open the gate.
The owners expect that guests will behave as if our house was theirs, caring for objects, furniture, carpets, kitchen utensils, etc. and adopting a civilized attitude toward our condo neighbours.
Pets will not be accepted.
The condo does not allow noise after 22 pm.
Please do not bring a stranger with you without consent.
