Sharon and John are excellent hosts with a splendid apartment in a very convenient location. It was easy to get taxis and buses within a block or two. Taxis also would come to the door with the call. The building is a nice 4 story brick structure just across from the river and near a bridge. It was nice to see people walking dogs and exercising just across the street.
The apartment is well furnished and stocked with everything you could possibly need including an entertainment system. We had some technical difficulties which John addressed right away. If he is not available, he has backup for most any situation. We liked the beds and linens. If we had cooked, the kitchen would have been great.
I would recommend this apartment for families or couples traveling together. It offers nice communal spaces as well as privacy.
This apartment was fantastic for our family. But more than that, John and Sharon are incredible. We were stuck in a hotel room next to a night club with our two kids. So I reached out to John and Sharon in the middle of the night and even though they weren't even trying to book anyone they made an exception for us. It was a weekend so their maid wasn't available. Even so, they spent all day personally cleaning and preparing the apartment and left wine and flesh flowers on the table. Its fully furnished and has every kitchen item you can think of down to the tea. Nice backyard area for the kids to stretch their legs and eat strawberries and passion fruit. They have an awesome home theater set-up complete with Netflix and surround sound. Its a short walk to restaurants and the local Supermaxi if you want to shop and cook at home. Short cab ride into the Centro. Its next to a park and right on the river. Theres a nice walking trail next to the river. They are incredible hosts with a stunning apartment in an incredible city. We loved our stay.
