PLEASE NOTE that the rate is inclusive of everything except for electricity which is charged separately. Brazilian electricity prices have increased by 75% since November 2014 and, to avoid having to increase our rates accordingly, we feel the fairest way is to keep it separate. We take a meter reading on check-in and on check-out and charge exactly the value per KW/h as charged by the energy company LIGHT. Air-conditioning units are what use the most energy, so we would encourage guests to switch them off when they are out of the apartment. Brazilian electricity prices are among the highest in the world (50% higher than the US average) but with normal use guests can expect to pay around R$20 (twenty Brazilian reals) per day in the summer. In the winter, if the amount is very low (less than R$100) we will usually waive payment.
- Quiet period from 10pm to 8am
- Always close balcony doors when not in the apartment
- Electricity is charged separately and according to the meter. We take a photo on check in and check out and calculate according to the energy bill. This is to encourage conscious energy use. Be eco-aware! :)
