My stay was just perfect. The apartment is as described in the pictures, functional, clean, comfortable and well located (everything is at a walking distance: restaurants, mini markets, stores and the beach!). Katia is a great host always worried about my stay and communicated by cellphone and email. 100% recommendable!

Perfect! Katia was amazing. Waited for us outside the apartment block, let us leave our bags in the complex until our room was ready. Was always contactable which helped us a great deal getting around Rio. Apartment is spacious and clean. Kitchen amenities all in working order. (Keep food properly stored/wash up dishes asap - woke up to an infestation of micro-ants in the kitchen after night one. My fault! Windows were left open too, which didn't help. There was bug spray on hand, so that problem was easily sorted). Perfect apartment, perfect host, perfect location. Would stay again the next time I find myself in Rio.

Response from Katia & Gardenia:
Thank you, Karina. We also recommend not to leave the full trash bags inside the apartment and throw them in the disposable area which is just a few steps in the external corridor. Unfortunately we noticed the trash bags were inside in the kitchen and living room areas and might have attracted the ants as well.

We have stayed 4 nights at Katias place during carnival. The apartment was perfect. Exactly as it is described in the pictures. We were three, and it was great for us. The value for money was very convenient considering that we stayed there at carnival time, when hotels are very expensive and even most of the hired houses at airbnb too. The location is very convenient. Just one block to the Copacabana beach. Lots of restaurants and stores very near, metro station and several buses for everywhere. Katia is a great host. She recommended us lots of points of interest. She was very flexible with the check out, and even she gave a present (souvenir) to my daughter at our departure. The only thing that I have to say for her is Thank you! Of course I recommend this apartment.

My mother and I love to travel and get to know the local culture. We travel a lot together and we always rent apartments in the cities we visit to have a perspective of a resident.
I - Katia - worked and lived in DC for almost 15 years.
After several years with the World Bank, I decided to leave DC in 2010, return to Brazil and try something different. It has been great so far....
I loved my life, friends and work in DC so it was a difficult decision but a good one.
My mother Gardenia owns some apartments and love to host foreigners visiting Rio and provide them with our insights of Rio. I am helping her with the coordination and reservations. It has been working so well that recently my cousin, aunt and a friend asked us to add their apts to our list.
