<span>Hi! I’m Cristina Areias, I am 59 years old (so they say…), divorced, no kids, only cats... three, actually (which makes IMPERATIVE TO LOVE cats (sorry about CAPs), because who knows them, knows that they are the real hosts!).</span><br /><span>I am a smoker (sorry about that), so smokers are welcome in the house and allowed to smoke wherever they want.</span><br /><span>I'm psychologist, web designer, artisan, now working for the Rio de Janeiro Government (since 2009).</span><br /><span>I work from Monday to Friday, from 10 am till 5 pm and when I'm home, I like to watch TV or, mostly, browse the Internet, for playing or studying, or working.</span><br /><span>I love languages, so I speak English and French and I understand a little bit of Spanish. I love architecture, arts, movies, animation movies (I do some animation stuff, myself) and again… cats!</span><br /><span>As I always adored having people from different countries and cultures around me; as my apartment is quite enough big for me and my 3 cats (160m2), on November 2012, I decided to host people in here.</span><br /><span>I have to say that I don’t consider myself a hostel, as a matter of fact, I don’t want to be a hostel, at all! I like to interact with guests feeling that this is still a home and absolutely not a formal or impersonal place! The idea is to share my home with people who want to stay in here for a while (or even, a bit more than “a while”). This is an important aspect to me!</span>
<p><span>So, you may keep this in mind:</span><br /><span>***cats; smokers and NOT a hostel!***</span></p>
<p><span>Moving on:</span><br /><span>I have a helper who comes for house cleaning, or, if I travel (which I do every 15 days, if I'm able to), she comes to take care of the 3 cats.</span><br /><span>I don't provide meals, but this should not be an issue, as we have plenty of breakfast services all around, and guests can use the kitchen (stove, microwave, refrigerator, freezer, coffee maker, etc) for cooking, if they want so. I'll also be very glad to guide them to the supermarkets and other places around. I live in this apartment since I was born. This is the home of my grandparents.</span></p>
<p><span>Presenting the apartment and neighborhood:</span><br /><span>My apartment is at Barão de Icaraí street, at Flamengo, a residential neighborhood, 10 min from even Downtown or Copacabana, or Ipanema (by Metro, or bus) and Sugar Loaf, at Flamengo’s Beach (by foot).</span><br /><span>Close to everything and everywhere, Flamengo has a lot of services to offer, such as bakeries, supermarkets, Shopping Centers, traditional or fashion restaurants, theaters, night life and sight seeings. It’s a true Carioca residential neighborhood, indeed and – even considering we Rio de Janeiro a big city – this is considered a quite safe neighborhood.</span><br /><span>The apartment is at the 2nd floor, facing a traditional street.</span><br /><span>As I said, it's a big and pleasant old fashion apartment (160m2).</span><br /><span>It has 05 rooms, 4 of them, I’m offering for renting (this bedroom I’m offering has 1 double bed, 1 single bed, 1 desk, 1 dresser, 1 dressing table and 1 wardrobe).</span><br /><span>It has 2 comfortable bathrooms and another one which serves the service area (all 3 bathrooms are complete - shower, toilet, etc. - and all of them are available for guests); 01 living room; 01 large dining room (with a big table for 8 people); service area (with laundry machine and clothesline clothing); kitchen (with stove and oven, microwave and a freezer/refrigerator). There is, also, a pleasant balcony with another table which sets 4 persons, and a set of sofa and chairs. It is a quite pleasant place.</span><br /><span>Let's talk now about what REALLY MATTERS (if you know what I mean... "better having wifi than a roof over ours heads!" lol kidding!):</span><br /><span>I have WiFi in the house, guests would be able to use Internet broadband (10 Mega w/a very good rooter) in the entire apartment.</span><br /><span>Although I have one telephone in the house, it would be difficult for me to afford international calls (very sorry about that) I thought I had to say this since now.</span><br /><span>We have doormen night and day, all the time.</span><br /><span>All guests have their own room with their own keys.</span><br /><span>Everybody shares the bathrooms; the kitchen and the common areas and I leave to them to decide how to do this. Anyway, there are lots of wardrobes at the kitchen, so this won’t be a problem.</span><br /><span>Maybe, maybe, just another thing to keep in mind:</span><br /><span>*** common areas***</span><br /><span>Even I'm constantly paying attention in order to have the house confortable (in terms of numbers of guests in here, as we're talking about an old apartment), there will be always the common areas to share, so it would be nice taking care of them every time you use them... just keep this in mind...</span></p>
<p><span>An observation:</span><br /><span>I don’t know exactly why, but the guest's profile I’ve received - since I’ve started hosting – is student or worker, staying here for longer periods (sometimes more than a year); so it is always a calm ambiance (you know… like having some more “cats” around). :o)</span></p>
<p><span>Well folks, I think that’s enough for now. Feel free to email/call me up if you have any doubts.</span><br /><span>I really hope to see you around!</span></p>
