Very cool apartment in a great location. It's modern, chic, comfortable. Everything was great other than the lack of air con in the living room area and a small issue with the boiler but Rafael and his friends helped fix the issue quite quickly. Would come back again!

Best place and host ever. The appartments i great, retro stylish and design with eye for detail. The host very accomodating and flexible. The internet (in Rio) can be unreliable sometimes, but they did their best to solve it. Very happy with the place and host.

It was a fantastic experience in Rio. Rafael's appartment located in the central of Rio, where offers local restaurants and services. It satisfied me a lot because I am the one who like exploring local cultures. The guys in the reception are very supportive and friendly. They make me feel like I am home. The appartment is near the metro (900 meters), near the local market that selling cheap stuff and foods (1 kilometer). How I feel about the appartment? Perfect ! It is cleaned perfectly when I come. It has kitchen, fridge, washing machine. Everything is designed in a creative way that inspires me a lot when working there. Thanks Viviane for treating me so well. She is the appartment manager who takes care of the visitors because Rafael is not home. She offers me information that make my trip easier and safe. Sorry that I have nothing to complain about this. This is a perfect appartment. If anyone is coming to Rio and need more information, feel free to ask Viviane or send me an email (EMAIL HIDDEN)

We really enjoyed our stay at rafaels house. The appartment was very clean and comfortable and has everything included what you need to live. Vivi who made the check in and check out with us was very friendly and offered help at any time. Unless you want to spend all of your teip at copacabana or ipanema the Apartment is perfectly located and very close to the center, lapa and santa teresa. Lots of bars and restaurants around. I definitely would recommend staying at rafaels place at one of the most modern apartments i have seen in 6 months brasil so far.

perfectly organized, flat looks exactly like on the pictures and made us an awesome time in Rio. Apartment is equipped only with the best facilites, so cooking was big fun to us. Communication was very good and the host and his friends were helpful during the whole stay.

I'm "globetrotting" my way around life…
Current goal is to brush up my French (je peux me deffendre mais avoir une conversation complex c'est encore beaucoup "challenging"…) so I end up spending a lot of time in between Quebec and France whenever work allows (I work on a 28x28 rotation). Particularly fond of the idea of cultural immersion and that's why I'm giving airBnB a shot. Used to like the Couch surfing concept and insisted using it until I finally convinced myself that the vast majority (I did meet/host some great people!) is there for the free accommodation. Though I appreciate the true "free-minded" people I also believe in hard work and accomplishments...
Will be blending skiing and skydiving (whenever the weather allows) together with my French-learning pursuit…
(I tend to abuse parenthesis sometimes…)

My flat in Rio is the closest thing I have for a "home". Since I travel so much for work (and quite a bit for leisure) I end up staying very little time around Rio and I decided to make the place available for AirBnB. The bottom line for this is: if you are renting the place it is very likely I'm away from Rio and you'll not meet me in person, sorry :(
But, a very good friend of mine helps me out on running this and she'll be there to greet you :)
