Working at UFPE? Here is a true advice: public transport is a main hurdle. Heavy traffic and security concerns. We are 15 min walk from UFPE n FACIPE. This is a moskito free (URL HIDDEN) and iron fences all over. The room has a double bed, wardrobe for single, shelves, 'split air conditioning' and a ceiling fan. You may want to just try our basic breakfast and walk to UFPE. Restaurants and grocery shoppings close by. Stay comfortable in an English speaking environment!

The space

This is a bedroom with two windows in a 4 bedrooms apartment. It is good for a short stay for two people. The apartment is located less than 20 min drive distance from the International airport of Guararapes, Boa Viagem beach, the interestate bus station (TIP), and main shopping centers. There is a security guard in the street in the evening.

Guest access

You will be sharing with other guests and with myself a kitchen, laundry and a separate dining/living room that opens into a cosy deck. We can see my 46" TV with apple TV, Chromecast and cable TV.

Interaction with guests

I am a 66 years old retired professor working from home in e-learning, translations, etc. I lived for 10 years in New Zealand with my husband who was a newzealander. Since he passed away in 2013, I returned to my former Family in Brazil. Now I feel like welcoming people from overseas and treating them with the same kindness I was treated abroad. I will be happy to support you with my English for your 'getting around'.

Other things to note

We have 1 space in a covered car park. You may need to share it with another guest if it comes to that situation.

Wow!!! I decided to stay one month more. Why? Everything is perfect with Myres. She helped me a lot. I study at the UFPE and my first month was very bureaucratic. Thanks to Myres I survived. ;-) I feel me really welcome. There is nothing to complain. An good recommendation! Òtimo!!! Eu decidi ficar um mês mais. Por quê? Tudo é perfeito com Myres. Ela me ajudou muito. Eu estudo na UFPE e meu primeiro mês foi muito burocrático. Graças a Myres, eu sobrevivi. ;-) Eu me sinto muito bem-vindo. Não há nada para reclamar. Uma boa recomendação!

I had a great time staying here at Myre's home. I chose her Airbnb because it is in a central location that is close to UFPE! My experience with Myres was nothing but amazing. She really welcomed me into her home and made my transition to Recife very smoothly. She helped me learn different ways to use public transport, how to apartment hunt, and how to adjust to Brazilian life! I am very glad I stayed here! Myres is a great person and a great friend !

This is my second time staying here. I have a project at the university, and this is convenient location for accessing the university. Myres is also an excellent host, always sensitive to the needs of the guest. I had to travel during my stay here. Myres ensured that everything was ok. She is also a good person to converse. Will recommend for sure.

I loved staying at Myres. She was very friendly and helpful. Myres is also a very tolerant and openminded person. The rooms were clean and had everything you need for a comfortable stay. The breakfast was delicious and a lot. I really recommend staying at Myres.

Myres is great! It was my first stop in Brazil for the World Cup and she was incredibly nice and friendly. She took a taxi to the airport to pick me up and helped me with info about the neighborhood and transportation. I also had breakfast waiting for me each morning. Her place isn't the most convenient for getting around but her generosity more than made up for it.

I am a professor under superannuation in Brazil. Now I am a translator for e-learning contents on the web.

I lived for 10 years in New Zealand with my husband who was a newzealander. Since he passed away early last year, I returned to my Family in Brazil. Now I feel like welcoming people from overseas treating them with the same kindness they treated me.
