Ed was a great host. My father and I had several concerns when traveling to Rio for the Olympics but Ed helped us ease one of them with our housing situation. His communication was great, the apartment incredibly convenient with easy access to public transportation (you could leave the apartment and be on the Metro within 2 minutes), near both Ipanema and Copacabana beaches along with tons of restaurants, bakeries and grocery stores. It is suitable for two guests (though one would be much more comfortable) and most importantly safe and secure with a 24 hour guard and secured gate entrance. The amenities were fantastic and he had everything you could possibly need. It really is nicer than the pictures show. Fatima, the contact for the apartment in Rio, was also excellent. She didn't speak English, but with (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) Translate, there were no issues. She was warm in her greeting, provided us with fruit and water, responsive whenever we needed anything and was just a genuinely sweet lady overall. The only downside for us was the sofa pull-out bed in the living room. Being 6'2 myself (with my Dad getting the bedroom), I didn't expect a lot when I saw the photo and how small it was. While Ed provided measurements for me confirming that I could stretch out entirely (which was true), only 2/3 of the bed was cushioned with your feet resting on the wooden base of the couch. It was all flush, but required additional pillows to make comfortable. That said, the space is limited and Ed mentioned he had to deliver the bed custom from the United States to fit the dimensions. So, it's understandable how options are limited. Bottom line was it worked, but after a week became a bit uncomfortable. All in all, sofa bed aside, I would recommend this apartment to anyone and would definitely consider staying here again if we ever return to Rio. Thanks Ed and Fatima for helping make our Rio experience a great one. We really appreciated it.

I have to say Ed proved to be a very patient and accomodating host to (URL HIDDEN) a first time user of Airbnb I was rather anxious for everything to run smoothly ..Ed promptly responded to any of my queries both pre and during my stay at his lovely fantastically located apartment. I'll be back annually as a result of the experience had.

Ed's place is great: perfect location between Ipanema and Copacabana, the metro station at your door and walking distance to the beach. The apartment is even better than in the pictures, confortable for two and even three people, with everything you may need. Very clean and well furnished. Fatima is really a plus: accomodating, easy going, always reachable and very, very nice. She left fruits and water for us. Thanks Fatima, you are lovely! Will not hesitate to rent this place again.

Thank you again Max now for the kind positive remarks. That's what Fatima and I do all we can for. Not just the reviews but the satisfaction of our guests which hopefully will translate in good reviews. All the best and hope to be able to serve you in the near future!

Our stay in the apartment was great! The place has everything you need, the kitchen is fully equiped and the furniture and appliances are in perfect conditions. The beaches of Ipanema and Copacabana are less than 10 minutes walking and there is a wide variety of restaurants in the sorrounding blocks. The owner and his assistant, Fatima, were always very helpful and kind. The building is not in very good conditions,that was our only issue, but the apartment and its location are worth it.

Fernanda, thank you for your review. I and Fatima always strive to make our guests stay the most ideal possible, so it's great to hear you enjoyed your stay. The building unfortunately like most in Rio is a work in progress. Good news is that they have been doing a lot in the last few years to improve it. I wish you a good reentering back home and hope to be at your service in the future. Ed

After a 17 hour flight to Rio, I immediately went to Ed's apartment to begin my two week stay in Rio. Upon entering the building, I was met with a tremendous stench in the hallway and apartment. Also, the bathroom in the apartment was broken. I could not even enter the bathroom because the smell was so bad and there were pieces of plumbing spread out on the floor, as if someone was trying to repair it. I also found Ed's assistant was not able to instruct me on the simple use of the TV remotes and washing machine. Between the unbearable stench in the apartment, the broken bathroom and the lack of communication with Ed's assistant, I left the apartment. Homeless. Later that day I spoke to Ed, who lives in Los Angeles. He informed me that the foul odor probably came from a neighbor's pets and if I keep the apartment door closed I probably will not smell it. I feel Ed's reply was an unreasonable answer to an unbearable problem. He also thought my complaint was petty and not his fault. I strongly disagree with Ed. I believe this is not a petty complaint and it is unreasonable to expect anyone to stay in a stench filled apartment for two weeks with the door closed so the foul smell from the building will not enter the apartment. I was lucky enough to find another place to stay, and the rest of my trip to Rio was a pleasant experience.

Response from Ed:
All other reviews respond to this person's inaccurate and unreasonable statements and attitude. She was already uneasy when even calling from Huston to tell me her flight was going to be a little late. Her agitation on that call already showed she was up to no good. Fatima, may assistant is super patient as other reviews tell. She will spend the whole day there waiting till the guest arrives. I've never noticed any bad smell in the apt and neither has any other guest complained about that. There is a neighbor who has a dog and sometimes like many irresponsible pet owners, you'll notice an unpleasant smell when you walk by his door, that's why I suggested her it might have been coming from there. Other reason would have been the plumbing work done which might have released some temporary smell. In any case as Lucy herself knows by the reviews which she read here before renting, there'd be nothing there which wouldn't either be gone quickly or we wouldn't take care of. She also makes it seems Fatima is unfit for the job. It's completely unfair, untrue and the reviews are there to prove. This woman was on something this day as she went all the to physically abusing of Fatima by slapping on her hand when she tried to aid her in something. Fatima does not speak English and I warn it here on my announce. She will however do anything to make everyone s stay as perfect as possible. The fact that this woman even slapped at her shows that she has no credit and she indeed is the unreasonable one here. Also the fact that she just fled the place without even trying to talk to me, only instead calling me hours later from the new place she had rented. Anyway everyone just read the reviews and be your own judge. I and Fatima have a history of having satisfied renters who usually love their stay there and love Fatima too. There has been issues like it would in any place but never have we failed to address it and make sure the guests are happy, comfortable and satisfied.

Hello Ed thanks for your hospitality. We had a great time at your place, the apartment is nice and safe and well located 10min walking to Ipanema and Copacabana. Everything looks like at the description you gave us. The only thing you may have to improve is the flush flow which is really slow and dripping. Otherwise it's all good. Fatima is lovely!
Ed User Profile
Response from Ed:
Fatima told me about the flush and has brought someone to fix it already. Sorry for the inconvenience and I'm glad you enjoyed your stay otherwise!
