About John Sunao Ii
I live between Rio de Janeiro and the San Francisco bay area in California. I am a public radio DJ with a Brazilian music radio program for the last 30 years. I am also a story teller and have a knack for making people laugh. I love the outdoors and especially cycling up to the Christ statue or in the hills above Silicon Valley. I am very familiar with the musical scene of Rio and can be your guide or give you the information you need. I am a native English speaker and speak fluent Portuguese and passable Japanese. I also can make myself understood in Spanish. My philosophy as a host: My parents were very successful small business owners with a carnation farm and later a flower shop. They had their business listed in the best of Silicon Valley and even had local TV coverage. Out of hundreds of similar businesses, they were able to differentiate themselves on how they treated and interacted with their customers. They worked hard to give that little extra that made people want to come back. My goal as a host is to treat as you my parents would have. Let me show my definition of hospitality.
Why John Sunao Ii chose Leme
Location Location Location. We chose it because it was a building on a corner with an entrance onto a small square. It is in a very safe area where you can feel at ease (my guests frequently mention this in their reviews). It is easy to to get to any part of Rio de Janeiro. Convenient to the metro, public buses, and taxis. Beach in front of you, downtown 15 minutes by taxi, Ipanema is around 5 minutes by taxi. And then, there is the VIEW!
What makes this Apartment unique
So many memorable events just outside our window. When Pope Francis came to Rio de Janeiro, he made his public appearance right in front of our apartment. We were literally the closest people to him. When athletes run the half marathon, we could see the finish line and runners sprinting towards it. We have seen movies, telenovelas and music videos filmed nearby. During the Olympics and World Cup worldwide television networks broadcasted within sight of our apartment. We are that centrally located.
