Hi Marcos,

Hey Marcos, 
It is me Ken, you know Mike's brother.  Hey man, I just want to 
personally thank you for all your help and accommodating us.  I had such a wonderful time in Brazil, and I am really happy that we did business with you. 
I really liked the apartments, and the next time I come I will go nowhere else, but back there.

Okay, Marcos!  Congratulations to Rio on winning the Olympics!. 

This past February my wife and I stayed in one of your flats along Ipanema.  We had a wonderful time and are ready to commit to coming back for the big event.

Please put us on a list to rent with you again when the time comes!

From the moment I was greeted by your driver at the airport, I knew I was in good hands.  Thanks for making the trip to Rio so amazing.   You and your staff were so helpful with everything from getting me a cell phone (and then showing me how to work it!) to suggesting incredible restaurants in Rio and awesome sidetrips outside of the city.  While I managed to learn some Portuguese during my stay, I know I never could have navigated the city nearly as well without your assistance.

Muito obrigado,

Hi Marcos,

Thank you for helping us to have a great time in Rio. Our apartment was very comfortable and safe and you gave us plenty of advice about things to see and do.

Bom dia Marcos,

I already have been many times in Rio at different locations. Last time I fortunately visited your website and finally I rented one of your apartments. When I will visit Rio next time I surely will contact you again. The service and the accommodation were just great and I really can recommend everything. For example I appreciated to have a mobile phone. The price relation for an apartment at the centre of Ipanema compared to hotels is acceptable. 
entao, muilto obrigado, ate breve

Dear Marcos and Gabriel,
We had an absolutely great time in Rio de Janeiro!
We were so very excited before the trip and it turned out to be better than we had imagined. 
Our location in Ipanema was great. We liked that everything was pretty much at walking distance: beaches, shopping, dining and entertainment (running out to Zona Sul in pajamas in the morning for warm bread...priceless) and that there was always something to see or do, even if we were just hanging out the window at night watching capoeira on the corner!
Jen and I loved waking up in the morning and seeing the Christ the Redeemer statue right out of our window. I believed we took more camera shots of that than anything else. 
Also, I never thanked you guys for all your suggestions on things to do while in Rio. All of your tour suggestions you made turned out great...Búzios was great....good snorkeling, beautiful beaches and nice hotttt weather! we loved it!; our trips to Corcovado and Pao de Azucar were amazing....couldn't believe the view. I literally wanted to put up a tent there and spent the rest of the trip staring out to the beaches (by the way the corn on the cob at the beach is really tasty); Sambodrome....was like a costume party for me!; and the best thing ever....standing in Pele's footsteps (well, sort of) at Maracana stadium. I don't know if I have ever been thát exciting!
As you can guess we all had a great time. Thanks for making this trip a memorable one. It took us a while to come home--mentally!
Until next time!

Hi Marcos,
I visited Rio for a little over two months in 2004 and during that period rented two different, two bedroom
apartments from your company, Rio Flat Rentals.  Dealing with Rio Flat Rentals was a pleasure.  As an American, it is difficult to find a good deal on an apartment while not speaking Portuguese fluently. You guys at Rio Flat Rentals had apartments in the best areas of the city, for reasonable prices, first world amenities, and you go out of your way to accommodate our needs.  Additionally, your employees speak English fluently and are familiar with Americans and our needs.  

I highly recommended my friends dealing with you when they start looking to rent an apartment in Rio on their vacation.

Thanks for everything.


New York, NY


The apartment in Ipanema had Great views, Great amenities, Great location. We had an awesome time and will definitely call you next time.

Service: The three of us came on 2 different flights...both of which were delayed and rerouted...your driver was still there to pick each of us up, thanks!

Dear Marcos,

Congratulations!!! I've been to Brazil almost ten times and I've never been provided with such high quality, efficient and reliable accommodation services! You have definitely contributed to the magic of our last holidays in Rio. I will recommend you to my friends and family with no hesitation whatsoever.

Thank you again for everything!


Paris, France

I would just like to thank you so very much for everything you and your company did for me during my week in Ipanema in early December, 2004.
My apartment had an awesome view, was spotless and was exceptionally well maintained. Everyone, from yourself to the building security staff, was a pleasure to meet and was most helpful.
Marcos, your customer service is the best that I have ever encountered, and I would recommend your company and its properties without hesitation.
I look forward to renting an apartment from your company again when I return to Rio in December, 2005 !

Alright Gabriel,
I hope you're well.  I would just like to drop you a note to say thanks very much for the excellent hospitality provided by your company.  We had a great stay in Copacabana and a really fun time at Carnaval.  I hope the apartment was in as good condition as it was when we first got it and the lads behaved properly when they left.  All the best for the future.
Thanks & regards,
Ruairi O'Donnell


Marcus... I just wanted to say thanks and I had a great time while visiting in Rio....the apartments worked out great....and I've already referred you to a few friends thinking of visiting Rio as well....I will be back and look forward to working with you again....obrigado

Hello Marcos,
Well, I am now back in San Francisco.
I just wanted to thank you for your services, and especially for your immediate responses to my emails in reserving the two apts. prior to my trip.
I also wanted to let you know that your employees Rafael and Josiane were very thorough and professional.
Although I rented two apts. - R. Francisco Octaviano and R. Vieira Souto, I enjoyed the apt. on Vieira Souto much more for obvious reasons - the view and the overall comfort of the apt.
Overall, it was a pleasure working with you. I am in Rio approximately two times per year.

Hello guys,

I just wanted to say thank you for such a cool apartment and a great time in your country!

Dear Josiane,

Let me take a moment to thanks a lot for the excellent days that my family and I had in Rio.
The problem now is that my family liked so much Rio and now the three wants to leave in Rio forever and ever!!!!
Although my mother was very good taking the tours in Rio, now she is in bed following the doctor suggestions.

Well all was excellent, thank you so much!!!!

Dear Marcos: 

I am back in the U.S. and already got the email below that you credited our Pay Pal account.  
Thank you very much for your prompt attention to all of my questions and the very professional way in which you handled this transaction.  
If I come back next winter, I will be sure to contact you again.  But then I probably will need three bedrooms as I will bring my wife and three children.  

Again, thank you for everything.

 Now arrived back in the UK and would like to thank you and your staff for your very professional service when we rented the apartment from you.

 We appreciated how smoothly everything was organised and your assistance when wehad queries.

 We will certainly use your offices again when we next visit Rio


 Christine & David Rothera


Dear Marcos, 

I do hope everything went well with the clean-up being organised after our late check-out last week, and did not create difficulty forthe next guests. We have hopefully kept the place in good condition. 

I have also received the deposit credited back to my PayPal account promptly one day after departure, so thanks for handling the administrative/financial side of things very reliably.

Looking forward to using your services again in thefuture.

Thanks and best regards,
Dr. Markus Wendel

I just wanted to send you a quick note to thank you for all the arrangements.  My friend and I had a great holiday, and the flat was great, as was the staff in the building.  
I will certainly refer any future business your way.  

Thanks again. 

Kind regards,
Kris Blohm 


Hi Marcos, 

Just a note to say that I've had a great time in Rio.

Thanks for all your help.  I'm sure I'll be in touch again about another rental soon. 

All best - 

Howard Siegelman


I want to thank you for the support and for the marvelous job you do in
making sure your clients get what they'd asked for. This apartment is a
delight, so much so that we'd like to rent it again next year, 2013.

We're looking to come the end of May, stay through June and leave the middle
of July or, perhaps, come the end of June, stay through July and leave the
middle of August. Is it too soon to make arrangements?

We have no interest in staying anywhere else. This is perfect for us.

Thanks again, Marcos.

Emory Josephs

Tarzana, CA

Thank you so much Marcos for all your help.    We very much enjoyed Rio and
the flat was great.

Overall the experience was really good and the flat was what we were
expecting.   The doorman security was good and it took us a while to realize
there was a garbage chute but we eventually found it.

 Thanks again and will be in touch on our next Rio vacation
