Perfect spot, one block from the beach and a grocery store next door. The building was safe, clean, and quiet. We could not have picked a better apartment, highly recommended.
Owner's Response: Glad to hear you enjoyed your stay! Thanks so much!

We had a wonderful time. The apartment had plenty of space, but was lacking on bedding. Other than that we had a nice time

Great location in Copacabana near Ipanema

This was our first visit to Rio and our family of 3 spent a week at the apartment. It is well located near the beach, food stores, and restaurants. Getting around is easy because there are cheap taxis everywhere and there is a Metro stop within easy walking distance. The building backs up to Cantagalo but we felt very secure as there is a porter always on duty. The apartment is spacious and having 2 bathrooms was a real plus. There were a couple of minor differences from the Home Away description in that there wasn't anything that played a CD or DVD, and the "clothes dryer" is a hanging rack which is standard in Rio homes. We used the washing machine once, and water leaked from below to the nearby drain in the floor. On the plus side, the A/C and fans worked well as did the wifi, and the master bath shower always had hot water. There were plenty of towels and other linens but we did have to furnish basics like toilet paper, dish and laundry soap, etc.
We took the Metro to the Centro district where we visited the older parts of the city and then made our way past the "Mayan" cathedral to the Arcos tramway (sadly, no longer running) to the Escadaria Selaron (fabulous tiled stairway) and up to the Santa Teresa area. Had refreshments at the Rustica beer garden and then enjoyed great views from the Parque das Ruinas. We also visited the Jardim Botanico and took the "Trem" up Corcovado to the Christ the Redeemer statue. Tip: if you have time to kill before your train, visit the Museum of Primitive Art next door to the station. We also spent time at the beach, naturally.
Recommended restaurants include the Confeitaria Colombo downtown, Zaza Tropical Bistro in Ipanema, Fellini "kilo" restaurant, and Galeto do Leblon for traditional "feijoada" in Leblon, and the Zot Gastrobar on Rua Bolivar in Copa, about 5 blocks from the apartment.
Finally, I would like to add that all of the people we dealt with regarding the apartment were extremely nice and helpful, especially the owner, Danny. Our arrival was delayed by 2 days because of the crash at San Francisco airport. I called Danny and he immediately made new arrangements for our pickup at the airport in Rio, as well as for our son (who was already in Rio as a student) to get the keys to the apartment. We also used the driver, Bruno, to take us to the airport for our early flight to Foz do Iguacu.
In all, I would recommend this comfortable apartment to anyone visiting the Cidade Maravilhosa who wants the "real" Rio.

Nice Apartment

I stayed here with my 2 daughters and 2 step daughters aged 17-20 for 5 days. It was a good apartment with great proximity to Copacabana Posto 5, however we really missed having natural light from open windows. When we opened the opaque glass to let in the light and fresh air we looked out at the slum, or another wall, or a very dirty rooftop. Proximity to the slum never ended up being an issue because there was always a police officer outside the front gate, but ambience was a little lacking as a result. Otherwise, great value for the price. Thanks Dan.

Wonderful introduction to Copacabana

It was our first visit to Copacabana, so we wanted to stay close to the beach. We also have two kids, so the typical hotel rooms are a little difficult on space for us.

Danny's condo satisfied both criteria wonderfully. There was plenty of space for all of us. The apartment is located one block away from Copacabana, and is walking distance to Ipanema, Arpoador, the subway station... There is a favela nearby, but there's almost always a police car parked right in front of the entrance to the apartment, so it's safe to walk around. There are many little places to get street food and supermarkets for any kinds of supplies. Folks who manage the condo were responsive and courteous.

The only suggestion for Danny is that the place could use just a touch of TLC. There were some lightbulbs out, others non-matching, batteries missing or not working in remotes, absence of toilet paper, etc. I would probably pop in a microwave to replace the old toaster oven. These are small things and inexpensive to address, and should make a difference for travelers far away from home :)
