The noise got tiring.

There are good and bad points to staying very close to a beach. Obviously if you are a sun worshipper you don't have far to go to get your share of rays. The downside is traffic of all shapes and sizes nearly 24 hours a day, most annoyingly motorcycles racing and revving their engines to show off the machismo of their drivers. I can't say we ever got past the noise. The apartment was small but adequate for two people. It was very clean with two HD televisions that had a couple of English channels. The wi fi worked well and there was a safe to store our valuables. There were tons of dishes had we wanted to cook, but there were numerous restaurants close by so we frequented them. Tomate was very good for breakfast as was the buffet at the Windsor Barra Hotel right next door. We also ate Mexican food from the restaurant right across the street. A grocery store was only two blocks away that had every little thing one might need. Fratelli's is a great Italian restaurant adjacent to this building.

The owner's representative was exceptionally helpful in attending to our transportation and other needs. He found the most excellent tour guide for us because a trip to Rio would not be complete without a visit to the major attractions of Sugar Loaf and Corcovado.

The neighborhood was extremely safe. You could walk for miles on the beach or the adjacent street at almost any time of the day.

Perfect Rio Retreat!

My husband and I stayed here for four nights in October and it was perfect - exactly as described. The apartment was very clean and comfortable for our stay. It is directly across the road from Barra beach, which is clean and beautiful. The apartment is in a secure building and we felt very comfortable coming and going during the day and at night. Rudy the manager provided us excellent service and information and recommended Javier Terrol, a local guide, to take us around Rio on our trip. We couldn't be happier!

There are many good restaurants within walking distance of the apartment, as well as grocery stores to stock up on a few essentials. We fell in love with a local woman who owns a lunch place called Tomate, right by the apartment. The food is good, but the owner and her sister made our days when eating there. They speak pretty good English and have all sorts of interesting stories about Rio and life there in general.

The only negative, which has nothing to do with the apartment, is the street is very busy and sometimes noisy. It did not spoil our trip and any hotel/apartment along the road will encounter the same thing.

I highly recommend this apartment and will definitely stay here again on our next trip to Rio. Thank you Cleide and Rudy for making our first trip to Rio special!

Rio was a definately a great visit. Thank you Cleide (owner) and Rudy (manager) for all of your help. The condo is beautiful and the area very safe; the drivers, Alex and Cesar were fantastic and reliable. I can't thank you enough for all of your assistance.

My next visit will be during Carnival!!

A lovely apartment, beautifully located within a secure building. The Barra Palace is a great location opposite the beach and with several fine restaurants nearby and a good supermarket only two blocks away.

I highly recommend this apartment. Everything went smoothly and the owner and her local agent were very friendly and responsive. Do take advantage of the driver assigned to pick you up and drop you back to the airport.

I look forward to staying here again when next in Rio.

The apartment is just like the photographs shown online. It is a small, beautiful decorated one room apartment, well maintained. It fits four confortably because it has a full size sofa bed in the living.
I was thrilled because the reason of my visit was a conference at the Windsor Barra Hotel and the apartment is next door to the Hotel.
The owner always kept a good comunication with us throug emails and the person reasponsable in Rio gave us quick response when we needed help during our stay.
I would definetely recomend this apartment.

If you want to go to Ipanema a taxi will charge about 35 reales or take the 332 bus that stops infront of the apartment for less than 6 reales.
