GREAT APARTMENT

  • 5 of 5
Stayed for a week in July 2007. Very nice spacious 2 bedroom apartment with close proximity to all. And only a couple blocks from the beach. Nice big window facing the rua Copacabana. This is an ideal apartment for the first time visitor, since it has easy access to all, and comes with wireless internet connection. Great open kitchen, nicely decorated bathroom with great hot water. One bedroom offers a nice size closet and the other has an average size wardrobe. There owner is a great guy. And the building is seems pretty safe and secure. The doorman is not 24hrs, so it can be very necessary to get two keys to the main entrance door if traveling with several people.

Owner's Response: Good point, The doorman is only there from 7am-11pm, so
if your out for a night on the town, remember your keys, because for extra security there is more than 1 entry door!

RIO CARNAVAL - 2 BEDROOM FLAT

  • 5 of 5
Firstly, Nicky is the host is the most! He's very open, honest and available for assistance, questions or concerns and very well connected! Anything you need, he has an answer. If he doesn't, he knows somone who will! The rata was good during Carnaval without having to rob us blind and he provided reliable transportation to and from the airport.

The property and it's furnishings are clean and in very good condition with all amenities in tact. My family and I were a total of four and very comfortable in the apartment. It is walking distance from several grocery stores and other shopping and food places. Various restaurants, laundry, post office, money exchange and charming gift stores, and even the movies are also near by. We felt safe and have diligient and friendly door guards who work in the lobby.

The apartment in Copacabana is very central to most of the other areas including Ipanema nearby and the accessibility of transportation was a plus! Cabs, subway, bus, party van, etc. I also felt comfortable walking around our area. The beach is a stone's throw away and can be seen from the window.

Our host gave us tips on how to navigate Carnaval, seeing the sites and nightlife. He's also connected us with transportation services for a couple those as well.

He helped to make my Carnaval bday celebration with my family one to remember! I am positively returning and would highly recommend anyone to stay in this property!

RIO STAY FOR CARNIVAL

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in an apartment on Copacabana. The location was great, literally 2 minutes from Copacabana beach, down the street from the market, money exchange, and places to eat. The doormen were great!! Our host was amazing. The accommodations were exactly what we needed 2 beds 2 baths a living area and kitchen. Perfect for ladies taking a week to celebrate. Nicky always checked on us to make sure we were okay, provided suggestions on how to get around and see the sights. He picked us up from the airport and made arrangements for us to get back safely. I will stay again...but this time bring my husband to see this beautiful place!! :)

PERFECT LOCATION FOR FIRST TIME VISITORS TO RIO

  • 4 of 5
Myself and my husband along with 2 friends stayed in this apartment for a few nights at either end of our holiday in Rio state.

Nick, the owner, met us at the apartment on our arrival despite our flight being delayed. He remained accessible to us throughout our time in Rio, answering questions and giving advice that we really appreciated - thanks Nick.

The desciption and pictures are accurate and the apartment really is in the midst of everything, making it ideal for first time visitors. The apartment can be a bit noisy due to it's location on a very busy street 24/7 but you balance that against the positives and it doesn't really matter. The back bedroom is defnitely the quieter of the two. There was always loads of hot water for showers (no mean feat with 3 girls!) and the apartment is nice and airy. The doormen are friendly and the apartment building is nice and quiet, with only 4 apartments on each floor. A few more item of cutlery and crockery and cooking utensils would have been appreciated but again this wasn't a major issue.

Within a couple of minutes walk you have Copacabana Beach, a serviced laundrette, supermarkets, tons of restaurants (the churrasco by the kilo ones are the best value as you only pay for what you want) and shops, a bicycle hire place. Just over the road is the Copa Hostel with amazingly helpful staff who speak great English - you can organise English speaking tours thru them - would recommend the City tour and the Favela tour. They also have internet and you can make international phonecalls from there too.

Despite what you read in guide books etc we all felt very safe walking around the area, even after dark. We did not feel harassed at all during our time here. Yes, people try to sell you things you don't necessarily want when you're on the beach but a polite "no thanks" in Portugese and they moved on. Just be sensible - don't flash tons of cash around and be aware of what's going on around you - and you shouldn't have any problems - we didn't.

Hope this review helps - thanks again Nick!

NEW YEARS EVE IN RIO DE JANEIRO

  • 5 of 5
We were a group of young people from Denmark looking for a place to stay during New Years Eve in Rio de Janeiro and were so lucky to find an apartment through Holiday-Rentals close to Copacabana beach.

The apartment was beautifull and spacy, close to everything like banks, restaurants, beach etc. It was well-maintained and clean upon arrival. The apartment itself is equipped with every comfort someone visiting Rio de Janeiro could want - a spacious living room, beautiful and modern kitchen and bathroom, TV, stereo and wireless internet.

It was furthermore a plus that the owner of the apartment was extremely helpful and nice and made us feel safe. He was always easy to get in contact with and dealt with any maintanence issue in the apartment with ruthless efficiency.

One important thing to have in mind - it is important to be careful in the areas close to the beach. A lot of people get robbed and I will recommend not to walk the around the streets of this area by yourself - especially not girls.

In all its has been an amazing holiday and I will definetely recommend the apartment! The comfort and ease of living there, and all of the wonderful help from the owner made our stay in Rio De Janeiro that much more enjoyable. I would not hesitate to recomend this apartment to anyone!!!
