Amazing penthouse!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our group had a great stay at this amazing penthouse. The pictures are totally authentic and representative of how great this place actually is. The inside living areas were extremely nice and clean. There are two great outdoor spaces with tremendous views and well kept plants.

The air conditioning worked well and the beds were comfortable.

The location is conducive to walking to bars, restaurants and Copacabana beach.

The kitchen is modern and totally useful if you plan to cook. The apartment is one block away from a full service grocery store.

Overall, the penthouse is a great value. We stayed at the Rio JW Marriott one night for the same price and the penthouse proved to be significantly nicer and a better value.

Yates and the team were very easy to coordinate with. I'd love to stay here again next time I'm in Rio.

Tip: As other reviewers mentioned, there is only street parking available.

Fantastic penthouse and marvelous terasses!

  • 5 of 5

I am french speaking so sorry if I make mistakes in this review. We were 2 friends sharing this fantastic and beautiful penthouse. The owner is very easy do deal with. This penthouse has been nicely renovated. Very chic! Full of light, open space and the 2 terasses with flowers and plants everywhere are above expectation. Marvelous! We had great time there. Quiet sleep too! Very close to the beach and 20 minutes walk from Ipanema. We met Lamartine, the manager who answered our questions in english and organised transportation for the airport. He is available to help you as needed. We met Margot the house cleaning women who only speaks portuguese but she does her best to use body language!! ;-) We recommend this place without hesitation. You won't regret it!

The perfect vacation home in Rio!

  • 5 of 5

"Location, location, location..." This apartment is situated perfectly, with easy access to all the best of Rio. It's a short walk to the best beaches, shops, and many restaurants in both the Copacabana & Ipanema neighborhoods. It's just a couple blocks to the Metro subway, and there are always taxis nearby. There's even a bike rental shop across the street; biking along the beaches and Rodrigo de Freitas Lagoa are a fantastic way to see Rio.

The penthouse is fitted with great space for intimate gatherings, including dining and living rooms, plus two terraces with delightful views. The main living room area is a great airy & bright space, with a big flat screen TV (with English-language cable TV stations!) and marvelous leather couch and armchairs. Paintings and sculptures throughout this well-thought out home add just the right Brasilian flourishes and colorful accents. For the tech-savvy/obsessed, there is secure wifi throughout the apartment.

Although most of my meals were spent sampling the local restaurants (several great ones are always open very close by), the kitchen here made it easy to have a relaxed breakfast using some of the fresh fruits & veggies from the local farmers' markets. Unlike so many of the Rio apartments where I've stayed previously, this kitchen is very spacious, and has all modern appliances.

The bedrooms have wonderfully comfortable beds fitted with luxuriously soft sheets, and the in-room a/c and ceiling fans ensured perfect sleep every night. Rio is one of those cities that never sleeps, but I never heard any street noise way up on the 13th floor. For others like me who fall asleep reading a good book, the overhead LED lights in the bedrooms were a nice touch, too. The baths have plush towels, great lighting, and terrific hot water that lasted as long as I needed.

The apartment manager, Lamartine was so very helpful when I had an unexpected medical emergency. Lamartine knew just the specialist I needed to see, and ensured I got in to that doctor's office quickly. That's service above and beyond any I'd have expected.

Yates' apartment was a highlight in this latest visit to Rio for me. It is perfect for a small group of friends or family, and is guaranteed to start your every day in Rio on a high note.

Yates's paradise in Copacabana!!!!

  • 5 of 5

The most beautiful and comfortable apartment in Copacabana. Perfectly located close to everything! The living room and two of the bedrooms open onto the largest terrace, it is breathtaking!!!!! Lots of space and beautiful plants, we spent lots of time lounging out here. The other terrace overlooks the ocean and beach, also beautiful plants. perfect place to have coffee in the morning. Everything about this place was thought through. It has all amenities, and is so very comfortable. Close to restaurants, shopping, mass transit, and next to the beach!!!! Love it, Yates, the property manager, and the maid are so helpful and easy to work with!!!! You will not regret renting this place. Remember the weather this time of year is perfect in Rio, not too hot but you can still go swimming.

What could have been a nightmare scenario for me was remedied by the apartment manager, Lamartine. He was so very helpful!

I had the misfortune of getting sick while away from home, in a country I barely speak the home language & in which I had no clue as

to how to make arrangements to see a Brasilian doctor (and quickly!). Lamartine knew just the specialist I needed to see, and ensured

I got in to that doctor's office the next day. The amount of help that Lamartine provided me was so unexpected and kind; this kind of

As Advertised!

  • 5 of 5

I'm always a little nervous renting a condo, as sometimes properties aren't always as what they are advertised. Certainly not the case here. The condo is as advertised! Clean, perfect location, and comfortable. We absolutely loved our stay there. Particularly, the owner Yates and the property manager LaMartine were fantastic to deal with, very accommodating, kind, and responsive. I'd recommend this property and hope to have the chance myself to stay there again.

The property manager will come to the apartment every other day to water the plants to ensure that they are happy, healthy and blooming all year around. Please read the renter's reviews. The reviews will give you insights into the apartment and the area. I am very happy that clients have enjoyed their Penthouse 1301 experience.
