Located on the quiet residential street Barao da torre between beach post 10 and beach post 11 in Ipanema, the apartment is strategically located to reach all the bars, restaurants, shops, nightlife and cafes of this renowned neighborhood.
Ipanema beach is the ' hippest ' and most secure beach in Rio de Janeiro. You will be where everything is ' happening ' in Rio.
It's very rare to find such a charming and well located apartment in Ipanema. You will definitely be in perfect place to enjoy the ' carioca ' way of life.
Most important, the apartment is just 3 blocks away from the legendary Ipanema beach, one of the most beautiful beaches on the planet. The pristine waters of the Rodrigo de Freitas Lagoo( Rio de Janeiro's awe inspiring lake ) are also 1 and half blocks away. Leblon is just 1 block and Copacabana 5-7 minutes taxi ride
The most difficult things to find in vacation rental in Rio are good location ( close to the beach, active and yet safe ).
Chic, Modern decor & silence at night.
I hope I've been able to accomplish all 3 for you.
Also you can count on :
- Pre-paid cell phone for you to use while you are in Rio.
- Airport pick up and drop off.
Over the past seven years, I have stayed at six different apartments in zona sul in Rio. This is by far the best decorated and most comfortable one I have rented. Unlike many apartments in Rio, this unit's full size bed sports a box spring, a comfortable mattress and a pillow top mattress cover as well as adequate air conditioning for both the bedroom and the living room\dining areas. It is also located in a nice neighborhood about two blocks from the beach and close to ATM, shopping and restaurants. What's more, a new Metro stop is expected to open next year. As with any property, however, there are a couple of caveats: (1) This place can really only house couples, although I suppose a child or teenager could sleep on the couch (2) The unit has an electrically headed shower head that never produced anything more than tepid water temperatures during my stay (3) there doesn't appear to be a building elevator that serves the third floor unit, you'll have to carry your luggage up 3 flights of stairs and (4) light sleepers my find the bedroom window too poorly insulated to sleep well. There is a 20mm gap between the sliding glass window panes which lets in lots of street noise particularly on Sunday night/Monday morning when vendors setup for an open air food market as well as during periods of heavy Metro construction. There is also the possibility that heavy rains could blow through the window gaps and dampen any bedroom items located on the floor near the window. But I highly recommend this spot. The pictures don't lie. It is a real gem.
Excelente estadia: el apartamento muy agradable, muy lindo decorado, muy bien equipado, limpio, PERFECTO!!!
I really appreciated the quality of this jewel in the heart of Ipanema. It was a wonderful stay in a very quiet street and extremely comfortably place. I also wold like to stress the human quality of all the people involved in this business: from the owner to the maid.
The location is not only privileged for the closeness to the beach and nice coffes and stores but also for it's convenient transport hub nearby, that will improve when the metro extension will finish. Extremely recommendable to stay on mondey as there is a wonderful street market in front of the flat
We had a wonderful five-night stay in this beautiful apartment. Great location in Ipanema - walkable to beach, lake, excellent restaurants, etc. Super hip, designer touches throughout the apartment. Feel like you're a swanky native Carioca submerged in the rhythm of Ipanema. Never felt unsafe in our six days in Rio. Highly recommended!
Perfect location! Walking distance to great shops and restaurants in both Ipanema and Leblon. Great selection of restaurants just a few blocks away. High end shops all around. Very safe to walk around. Taxis are easily accessible. Beach is just a few blocks away. Farmers market on Monday morning right outside the building. There's an abundance of fresh fish and fruits. Vendors are friendly and offer so many samples. You'll see and taste fruits that you have never seen before and they are the sweetest I've ever tasted!
Apartment is very clean and stylish. Completely updated. The owner and property manager are very responsive. Price is very reasonable. The owner obviously takes very good care of her property.
I highly recommend staying here, however these are the shortcomings of the apartment:
1. We stayed with 4 people (2 adults and 2 kids). It's most comfortable for 2 people, maybe 3.
2. Only one bathroom and it's really small.
3. Hot water is inconsistent. We generally had lukewarm water, but sometimes it got too hot. Maybe we're just used to hot water on demand in the US and Rio isn't the same.
I can easily look over these shortcomings due to the location and cleanliness of the place. It can't be beat! Their airport pick up and drop off is easy and I highly recommend it. We did not use their driver for any of our tours. We ended up using a personal tour guide, Michael, who spoke English. We found him on a website that does tours by locals. I cannot say enough wonderful things about him. He is knowledgeable, honest, friendly, and affordable. You can customize your tours and he drives you in his own car. He knows the ins and outs of the touring spots. He'll get you a discount when possible. My daughter is studying in Rio for the next 6 months and he helped us get her settled in and even took us shopping for her stuff. Make your life easy and book this apartment and Michael as a driver and tour guide!
