Located about 45 mins away from Rio's center, this makes it a perfect place to stay to balance touristy beaches/locations and some of the best beaches in Rio, especially those in Niteroi. The apartment is modernly decorated with free access to Wi-Fi, Bose speakers, beach umbrella and chairs. Cynthia and Andre have equipped this apt to make it as convenient as possible for guests. The complex has an lengthy infinity pool, a gym, saunas, underground parking and 24/7 security. Though the security is included, we never felt unsafe walking around in the area, though a car is highly recommended to get around and view all the gorgeous beaches nearby. Would return!
