Barra da Tijuca Apartment Rental Photos and Description
Apartment, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)
RECENTLY REMODELED- Our apartment has spectacular views of Barra da Tijuca beach and Lagoa de Marapendi. Perfectly located between post 7 and 8 our place is far and away from the busy areas of the beach avenue, yet close to great restaurants, shopping and nightlife. Decorated in modern colors and comfortable furniture, the apartment includes all you need for a perfect vacation or business trip: queen bed in one suite, two singles in the other (can be converted to one larger bed), 42' plasma TVs (2), cable television, wireless high-speed internet service, washer/dryer, microwave oven, refrigerator and air-conditioners. A full kitchen, towels, linens and daily maid service are also provided for your convenience.
Barra da Tijuca beach is 18 km of white sand, surf and sunshine. Many beach championships, national and international, are held at Barra da Tijuca. The neighborhood is classified as one of the richest places in the country. It is believed to be the safest of Rio's upper class neighborhoods due to its lack of favelas and plentiful private and public security.
The building's amenities include a swimming pool large enough and long enough for a whole swim team to practice in; a tennis court that is kept in great condition (and is rarely used); a multi-purpose (basketball) court great for a pick-up game; and recently renovated wet and dry sauna perfect to help you unwind from a long day of sightseeing. The building has a mini-deli/mini-market where you can get most of your necessities for the day, 2 restaurants, a beauty salon and an underground parking garage with 24-hour security.
Taxis and buses are available directly in front of the building, or by calling the building's front desk.
So just pack for the sun and fun on the beach and you're ready to enjoy one of Rio's finest locales.

About Valéria Ball
As a Brazilian native and carioca (someone from Rio de Janeiro) Barra da Tijuca was always the best and safest beach to have fun with friends and family. Since I moved to USA in 1990 I've hoped to own a special place on the beach that I can stay with my husband and kids during our visits to Brazil. This apartment is a dream come true for my family and I hope to make more dreams come to life as I share my piece of heaven with travelers from around the world.
Valéria Ball purchased this apartment in 2010
Why Valéria Ball chose Barra da Tijuca
For the last 10 years I have been renting different apartments to stay with my family during our visits to Brazil and this particular building has been our favorite.
What makes this apartment unique
We appreciate having complete amenities in a perfect safe location in the city of Rio de Janeiro. The apartment is literally a few steps from the most beautiful beach in Rio where you can go for a swim 12 months out of the year. You are also a short taxi ride away from the best restaurants including the Churrascaria Porcão (authentic Brazilian barbecue) and large shopping malls like Barra Shopping, Downtown and many others.
