“Safe, Quiet, Convenient”
Reviewed 28 November 2017 for a stay in August 2015

I've lived here for 2 months in 2015 during my visit to PUC-rio. The house has everything you need, even a laundry service (at least during my stay).

The location is wonderful. The neighbourhood is quiet. Two minutes' walking to the university. Ten minutes' walking to Gavea, where you can find malls and restaurants. Moreover, it is very close to the Ipanema beach. You can either walk there or take a taxi.

Luciana was very kind to me. I asked her lots of questions, and she answered them all. This relay helped me a lot explore Rio.

“Wonderful stay in Gavea”
Reviewed 16 November 2017 for a stay in August 2016

I had a wonderful stay with my family and close friends in Luciana's beautiful home! The location was superb - just a short walk to the local Gavea shops and Leblon beach is nearby. We stayed during the Rio Olympics and the atmosphere in the surrounding areas was amazing. We felt safe at all times when out and about and loved coming back to our private sanctuary. The house is extremely comfortable and well maintained.We had wifi throughout the whole house, tvs in all bedrooms and the bathrooms were immaculate. It was so lovely to relax in the comfortable family home after a busy day.

We engaged the Luciana's house maid during our stay - which was a wonderful luxury. I had no problem liaising with Luciana - she was very prompt and nothing was too much trouble. If I ever get the chance to go back to Rio, I would definitely stay here again - we have so many happy memories of our stay!

“Beautiful house and welcoming family!”
Reviewed 13 September 2017 for a stay in August 2017

This place is amazing! I stayed at Luciana´s house for three weeks. I was looking for a place to live with a Brazilian family for the beginning of my stay in Rio and I am very happy I found this location. The house is big, beautifully decorated and they have two super friendly dogs and an adorable cat. It is the perfect place for both families and students, since it is located in a safe neighborhood and only five minutes away walking from the Pontifica Universidade Catolica. Both Luciana and her husband are incredible hosts and will make you feel at home during your entire stay. I will visit again! :-)

“Good location, beautiful house, perfectly equiped, lovely host. Perfect!”
Reviewed 13 September 2017 for a stay in December 2015

The house is gorgeous, very well decorated, with very good taste. We were 8 people staying there, we had lots of space for all of us and in perfect conditions: good wi-fi (internet everywhere), air conditioning in all rooms, modern bathrooms, etc. It is very well located, in a residential neighborhood, very quiet and full of green and not far from the most attractive beaches: Leblon and Ipanema (10 min by taxi) Would definitely stay here again.
