House Rules

I would only expect reasonable neatness and quiet entry when arriving from a late night out or getting up early for a day on the town. Guests are welcome to help themselves to whatever is in the refrigerator and if anything runs out to replace it in timely fashion. Guests are also welcome to put any goodies they might like in the fridge, which is spacious and can generally accomodate one's necessities. Eggs, bacon, butter, bread, skim milk, etc. are most often stocked be me.

David is a nice person, the position is great, but bed is very small for two person and the room should be cleaner.

Response from David:
Sorry your wife thought the room was not clean. I had my maid clean the room thoroughly the day before her arrival. With respect to the bed, I advised you repeatedly that it was a small double bed and might not be appropriate for a mother and son of 15 years of age. I even went so far as to buy an airbed and a foam mat that one of them could have used, though I think they ended up sharing the same small double bed anyway; this was their choice. To complain about it after the fact in your comments, having been fully advised beforehand and a viable option having been provided, seems a bit off. I am glad the rest went well for all.

David was extremely helpful, both as we prepared for our trip and throughout the week we stayed with him. We loved the location of his apartment - while it is a bus ride away from the more popular Ipanema/Copacabana area, the beach of Sao Conrado was beautiful and way less crowd…
