We stayed for 10 nights in Rio for the football world cup in Mays apartment. The service we got from May and her family was outstanding. She was in regular contact before we arrived and true to her word was waiting for us when we arrived. The apartment was stocked with everything we needed, May had even gone to the trouble to put together a "tour guide" with information on all the local services - bus stops, train stations, restaurants etc. She is an outstanding host and was 100% reliable and honest with us. Inregards to the apartment - well it was perfect for our needs. Great views and perfectly positioned between Ipanema and Copacabana beaches - both just a couple of minutes walk away. The building had a 24 hour doorman and was very safe and quiet. I can recommend this accommodation to anyone wishing to stay there. Thanks again May, see you hopefully in 2016!!! Sean

As it was my first time as a host, I was a little afraid of having any trouble, but with guest like you all , there is no chance of having any problem, so I am glad you enjoyed your stay and I really did my best to get everything settled for you. We really look forward to having you as a guest again. May
