It was a great time in Rio. I stayed there for 5 days with my family. The location was great, very close to the Ipanema beach. 5 stars

This apartment is extremely nice. The beach within 2 blocks made it a great location to experience Carnaval at its best! We definitely will stay again!
This was a great base for a 9 day stay in Rio. The location was pretty much ideal - 2 mins from Ipanema beach, with lively bars and shops all around, shady streets to walk in, and right next to the heart of bossa nova, the avenida de vinicius moraes, where Jobim wrote Girl from Ipanema. the apartment was clean, a decent size, functional and comfortable. Nice building and a sensible code access system which makes it ideal for families with independent children as you don't have to mess around with different sets of keys. It would have been nice if there had been a washing machine and the stereo didn't work - if the landlord could sort those things out it would be pretty much perfect.
I must say this was by far the best vacation i have taken in quite some time. Everything was superior with the apt from the decor, the comfort of each room right down to the amenities. Livia was amazing and responded to any inquiry made in a very quick and swift way. My friends and i were down for Carnival and we really had an awesome time. We were able to see the parade from in front of the building. Everything was in walking distance not to mention the neighborhood was extremely well lit and safe. I would give this place a 10 out of a 10. I cant wait to visit again.
The title of this review is all that is really needed to describe this apartment. But I'll go into a bit of detail as well.
When you are choosing a place to stay during a holiday location is everything. This apartment offers the perhaps the best location in Ipanema. It's located on a major street with tons of shops, restaurants, banks, grocery stores and bus lines. My roommate and I did not get a chance to explore all of the options within walking distance. But if you have all the time in the world to spend in Rio you certainly will not lack options.
As I said above the apartment is located on a major street (Rua Visconde de Piraja) but once you are in the apartment it's an oasis of peace that is well appointed and very comfortable. Added bonus is that you get a view of the ocean from the living room and master bedroom. You are provided everything that you need to make for a comfortable stay. The bathroom has a great shower that provides great pressure. The door men speak limited English, but were more than willing to help us out with directions. For me, the best part of the apartment is the lock on the door. It's keypad lock and you can set your own code. It's great to not to have to worry about taking keys to the beach.
Livia, the owner of the condo is absolutely amazing and responsive. She sends a really cool packet of things to do and see in Rio if you book the apartment. She was also kind enough to let us check in early. I would absolutely rent this apartment or any apartment from Livia.
My first impression of Brazil in general and Rio specifically was wonderful and I owe that assessment in large part to the location of this apartment. I will definitely rent this or another apartment from Livia again.
My family and I rented this apartment in Dec 2012. We found it through the recommendation of friends and we weren't disappointed! The owner, Livia, was very friendly and easy to work with, and we appreciated that she responded back immediately to our emails both before arriving and during our stay. Most importantly, from the very beginning I felt that this was a safe and secure transaction.
The apt building is located on a main street, close to dozens of stores, markets and restaurants and 2 short blocks (about a 5 min walk) from beautiful Ipanema Beach, at Lifeguard Post 9. On the way to the beach is the famous "Garota de Ipanema" restaurant and we had an excellent dinner there our last night.
The apt building's main entrance is gated & locked (all of them are like that) with a doorman there 24/7 to let us in/out and we appreciated that security. Located on the 8th floor, we were impressed with how modern, clean and bright the apt was, just like the pictures on the website. With shiny white marble floors throughout, the large double living/dining room had comfortable couches and glass dining table with an ocean view in the distance. It reminded us of a contemporary NY apartment in here in Rio. It had 3 large bedrooms, and 2 full baths.The master bedroom had its own full bath (w/double shower heads!) and each room had a lot of closet space.The galley-style kitchen was well stocked, which made it convenient for eating in, especially after a visit to the weekly Farmers Market down the street, something you must do if you stay here! The air conditioning in each room worked well, and we needed it! We were glad there was a strong wi-fi connection and also very good water pressure, which makes a big difference after a long day at the beach!
I would definitely recommend this apartment for 2 reasons: Livia and the location. Having a responsive owner is key to a great experience, and Livia helped us out incredibly with great local tips and suggestions. I can't stress enough how important it is to have someone who you feel you can trust in a place where you don't know anyone or the language very well! We’ve rented other apts when traveling abroad and found Livia to be among the most responsive and a pleasure to deal with. As for location, this was perfect for Ipanema!
We had such a great vacation and where we stayed played a big part in that. If you decide stay here, you won't be disappointed! We can't wait to come back again!
