My name is Jose Renato, and along with my brother J. Augusto, who is my partner in this small business, we have some furnished apartments for rent in Rio de Janeiro, located in different residential buildings. (Self-contained or self-catering apartments).
We have been renting our homely / homey furnished apartments since 1998, for brazilians and foreigners. However, we have had one property listed in FlipKey only in 2013.
The renters are travellers, holiday makers, vacationers, business traveller, or people who are in Rio to study or to work and need self-contained accommodation.
Since we are locals and live in the same area, we deal directly with the renters.
In the picture you can see I and my wife in Los Angeles, in a Mulholland road vista point, when we were in the US in October 2013.
