We stayed in the apartment for three weeks. The best thing about it was its owner :) Always smiling, helpful and kind Milton, and everything that had been previously written about him is true. When we rented a car, he even let us park in the yard, free of charge.
The apartment itself was comfortable, we traveled with two little kids so having a kitchen was a great advantage. I'm just not sure if our neighbors enjoyed their stay, as our kids were a bit noisy and the walls not that thick (we could hear each single footstep in the apartment above us). The only thing that we didn't like in the apartment was the shortage of hot water - it usually finished after one person took his shower, and for the last two days we didn't have hot water at all. Otherwise everything was fine.
The area was ok, very close to the subway, many places to eat around.More
