    “Great apartment , very well located. Host on time both on checkin and checkout. Photos very accurate. The only downturn is that it is a little humid, but all the apartments close to the beach are. Had a great time, I recommend it!”

    I'm booking with Rio Bay Housing since more than 2 years now and highly recommend this company. I've made bookings with other companies in Rio before but none of them offers the same level of service and reliability. Petra and her team have a very good sense for the needs of international travelers.
    Petra and Tessa are extremly responsive with all matters whether it be the organization of a taxi, a recommendation for a restaurant or any other issue you might think of. A great standard of customer service. Location is perfect since it is between Ipanama and Copacabana. Easy reach of many restaurants or bars, many of them in walking distance. Metro station General Osorio in walking distance as well.
    Petra and Tessa thanks again for your perfect service ! I very much appreciate that and hope to see you soon!
    Warm Regards from Zürich ( wheather is not bad btw)

    Nossa estadia no Otaviano foi muito prazeroso! Um apartamento super bem situado, com vizinhos bem animados! Adoramos! Adoramos sobretudo que tudo tenha dado certo como tinhamos previsto. Alias queriamos agradecer também os motoristas, Renato, que veio nos buscar na chegada e foi super agradavel com a gente, preocupado em nos dar dicas de pontos turisticos imperdiveis! E também o Jorge, que na hora de irmos embora, nos fez conhecer um pouco mais da historia dessa "Cidade Maravilhosa" que amo de paixao e que está sem duvida alguma gravada no meu DNA, na minha historia e no meu coraçao. Obrigada mais uma vez por tudo, e, tenho aqui comigo os tres cartoes de visita que encontrei no apartamento, vou repassando, pra que outros venham a ter o mesmos cuidados que tivemos."Un grand merci", e desculpe nao ter escrito em inglês pra que Jolien possa entender, mas de fato nao é minha lingua materna, tenho algumas dificuldades ainda

    I am writing this message right now in an apartment I am renting from Rio Bay Housing. Not only is it legitimate, it is one of the best and efficient services I've received in Rio, and I've been coming here for years. This is the first time I've rented from Rio Bay Housing, but after arriving here I realized I had met the lady who runs it several years ago through other contacts. (In fact, it turns out that some of her friends are friends of some of my friends.) The world of classy temporary rentals is pretty small in Rio.
    I highly recommend Rio Bay Housing!
