The House Rules

Rio is a place of freedom where people come to enjoy themselves, so I encourage you to have as much fun as possible. However, there are a few things I ask:
1. When nobody is in the apartment, please turn off the lights and especially the air conditioning, to conserve electricity and save the planet.
2. The front door/gate locks automatically when you close it so it is not necessary to "double lock" it when entering or exiting.
3. Please respect the other guests.

I spent two months at this amazing beachfront villa. Jake Lowe was a perfect host. He met me upon arrival, helped me settle in, and was available in person or via email whenever needed. The villa is perfect for some, maybe not enough for others. For me, location was great as I…
