My neighborhood is a large island in the north of Rio de Janeiro City. It is 15 km from downtown. The International Airport Tom Jobim (Galeão) is in the same neighborhood, however, there aren't problems with noise from airplanes.
I live in the apt.

O bairro é uma grande ilha no norte do Rio. Fica a 15 km do Centro da cidade. O Aeroporto Internacional Tom Jobim (Galeão) fica no mesmo bairro, mas não há problemas com o barulho dos aviões.
Eu vivo no apartamento (em quarto separado).

The space

Great area (it's a island!).
I love to host and I love clean places. I live in the apartment (sweet home).
Important: I sleep in the bedroom number four. I have two unique rooms for guests and a large room that can also be used as a bedroom (with mattresses or sleeping bags).

Lugar maneiro e diferente (é uma ilha!).
Eu amo para hospedar e eu adoro lugares limpos. Eu moro no apartamento (meu doce lar).
Importante: Eu durmo no quarto número quatro. Tenho dois quartos exclusivos para os hóspedes e uma grande sala que também pode ser usado como um quarto (com colchões ou sacos de dormir).

Guest access

Living room, kitchen and service area. Of course, your rooms and bathroom.

Sala, cozinha e área de serviço. Claro, seus quartos e o banheiro.

Interaction with guests

I work during the day. I can help my guests in the early morning, at night and on weekends. I love indicate secret places and interesting for my guests to live the Rio de Janeiro beyond postcards. I can serve as a driver and tour guide (price to match, it depends on the day and the amount of people). I can consider myself expert on Samba and fun. ; )

Eu trabalho durante o dia. Eu posso ajudar meus convidados no início da manhã, à noite e nos fins de semana. Eu amo indicar lugares secretos e interessante para os meus convidados viverem o Rio de Janeiro além de cartões postais. Eu posso servir como um condutor e guia turístico (preço a combinar, depende do dia e da quantidade de pessoas). Eu me considero especialista em Samba e diversão. ; )

Other things to note

I live on an island that is 15 km from the city center and 18 km from the beginning of the southern area (more tourist area of Rio de Janeiro). Here (in the north) has many interesting things to do and people are very friendly. However, important to say that, depending on the day and time, to go to museums in the city center and the southern beaches can take more than an hour because of the traffic jams.

Eu vivo em uma ilha que fica a 15 km do Centro da cidade e 18 km a partir do início da Zona Sul (área mais turística do Rio). Aqui (no norte) tem muitas coisas interessantes para fazer e as pessoas são muito amigáveis. No entanto, importante dizer que, dependendo do dia e hora, para ir aos museus no Centro da cidade e as praias da Zona Sul pode demorar mais de uma hora por causa dos engarrafamentos.

From the moment I arrived until I left Delmo was the perfect host. He is very friendly and easy to communicate with. Delmo gave me various tips of how to navigate around the Island and downtown Rio de Janeiro. He even collected and dropped me to the airport! The apartment is just as the pictures show. Modern, clean, very spacious and fully equipped with all of the appliances and utensils required. There are shops, restaurants and bars all within walking distance. The apartment is conveniently in close proximity to the GIG airport, yet I never heard a plane. The Island is wonderful and peaceful with easy bus links into downtown Rio (e.g. Copacabana. Ipanema and the tourist attractions) and taxis. There is a beautiful beech on the Island if you do not want to go into downtown Rio. The beech has a variety of bar/food huts serving from Sushi to German sausage and everything in between! I really enjoyed my stay here on the Island with Delmo in his apartment. I would highly recommend staying here and with him. I will most definitely be coming back again. Once again Delmo, thank you so much for letting me stay with you and for all of your advice. You're simply the best!

Delmo was great, he picked us up at the airport and took us back to the airport. He even stopped at McDonald's so my nephew could get something to eat. He could not have been more accommodating. His place was spacious and very clean. My nephew and brother found that the twin beds were VERY firm. The neighborhood seemed pleasant, but we were only there over night and didn't get much of a chance to explore.

What a fantastic host. Demo treated me like a long lost friend. The house was clean and very close to the airport, but you never heard a plane. I would come back for sure.

From the moment we landed, Delmo was a perfect host. He picked us up at he airport, showed us around his neighborhood, took us to find food after a very long day of travel, and was wonderful company. His place is very big compared to most places to stay in Rio. Very nice and comfortable home. You get the master bedroom with bathroom. He dropped us off at the bus stAtion and endured horrible traffic to get us there. I highly recommend staying with Delmo. Especially if you are tired and just arriving to GIG.

Delmo was a very good host. He was very friendly and helpfull. We only stayed there for one night unfortunately because it was a really nice place. The apartment itself is really big (100+ sqm) and is very modern. You have your own room and bathroom. I can definetly recommend staying at Delmos place.

Delmo se mostrou extremamente solicito, simpatico e atencioso. Fez tudo conforme o combinado e sempre nos surpreendia com atitudes que normalmente nao se esperaria de um host comum. Recomendo fortemente.

Delmo nous a très bien recçu, il est venu nous chercher à l'aéroport. Il nous a tout de suite mis à l'aise. Son accueil fut très chaleureux, sympathique et bienveillant. Merci beaucoup Delmo, toute ma famille et moi avons beaucoup apprécié ce séjour.
