We visited Ion and Sheila's place for 5 nights from the UK as the second half of our honeymoon in Rio. We loved it! The house was clean and full of amazing artifacts from all over the world that Ion and Sheila have gathered, and very cosy. There's no cooker so you have to go out for a main meal, but there is a microwave, fridge and toaster which is great for breakfast and snack meals. The little balcony and pool feel like you're close to nature, and we saw hummingbirds, little monkeys and dragonflies during our stay which was lovely. Ion and Sheila are wonderful, attentive hosts who made us very welcome- on our first day, Ion took us on an extensive tour of Santa Teresa including some great views and the Escadaria Selaron, and shared with us local knowledge which helped us learn more about the community we were staying in. He then took us to the supermarket and made us the best caipirinhas we had all fortnight! On Saturday night the square that's 50m from the house was full of music, food and dancing which was great fun. All in all, a lovely stay which was easily the best part of our time in Rio!
Ion and Sheila are the kindest and most considerate hosts ever. They are so helpful, if you need a taxi, advice on where to eat.....The place is amazing, artistically decorated an overall just wonderful experience! I can't wait to visit again.
We had a great stay at Ion and Sheila's house. The place was beautiful and nicely decorated and wefelt very comfortable during our stay. The flat was clean and the hosts were great to talk to. The place comes with a pool and is set in a very nie garden with Mango trees and Ananas. The neighborhood is good as well. We would definitely come back!
What a wonderful, secluded gem! We loved staying at Ion's beautiful apartment. It was close to shops and restaurants (a few minutes walk), and we really enjoyed the pool. The home is quiet, and Ion is great! He was very helpful and helped us get to know the neighborhood. The room is quirky and cozy and had everything we needed. I highly recommend staying here!
We would thoroughly recommend staying with Ion and Sheila. We had a wonderful few days in Rio and were very grateful for the thoughtfulness of our hosts, who are very special people. The suggestions for things to do, the lifts offered and a supermarket trip on the first evening were so helpful. We really enjoyed Santa Teresa which is a beautiful area and loved the beautiful garden with its splendid views, deep pool and the monkeys in the mango trees. The nearby square 'Largo das Neves' is a good destination for taxi drivers and had a great atmosphere at night with music, dancing and home-made pizza at the weekend. The house is full of delightful art work and the bed has a mosquito net which we did use at night. Altogether a very memorable place and we would definitely stay there if we visit Rio again.
Staying with Sheila and Ion is an experience beyond words. Truly the kindest hosts I have met in all of my bnb experiences. Sheila gives the best hugs! And she even gave ourbaby boy a small teddy as a gift....which we named Sheila! He loves her! The home is a home, lived in and loved. The bathrom came with fresh soap and even toothpaste! The shower is modern and clean. The bed was very comfortable and our hosts even provided a cot for our baby, along with linen. The location is agreat. Ion told us about the area and ee were avle to enjoy the pre carneval festivities in the street. We felt very safe in their home, and were treated like family. As is his custom, Ion also took us shopping and droped us to various locations for sight seeing. If i return to rio, i hope to stay withthese guys again. And get more hugs!
