Such a nice clean, safe and roomy apartment, with a fantastic location right on the beach at Barra da Tijuca. I rented this apartment for my son to stay in while he was working in Rio for 2 weeks. Thank you so much Aurora for all of your help and information, everything was just perfect. I would highly recommend this apartment for anyone traveling to Rio on holiday.
We spent three weeks at this apartment and found it to be very comfortable and ideally located with lovely views of the sea. There are plenty of restaurants locally and the Sheraton Hotel is next door which is very useful for their English speaking staff. We used the concierge there to book excursions and hire car.
Also Aurora, the apartment owner, was very helpful with all sorts of information.
Would definitely recommend this apartment.
In 2013 I was overseeing a lot of business in the Rio area and needed a permanent place to be my Home Away From Home.
I had been in Brazil many times before and always had a less than satisfactory experience with Hotels.
In doing many searches for Apartments, I soon realized how complicated it is for a forieigner to rent an apartment in Brazil. Thankfully I came across Aurora's advertisement and contacted her immediately.
She was very accomodating and responsive the entire way. I explained the dates and duration I had. She worked with me around previous bookings. We always joked amongst ourselves because I kept informing that my work with conclude and it kep to extend another month. She always would contact me to confirm in the event she received a booking.
About Barra Mares, what can I say. This apartment truly became my home away from home. It had everything I was seeking. Clean, convenient, quiet and the views are to die for. Being on the 17th floor, the views of the Ocean are unobstructed as well as the view of the Tijuca Forest.
The apartment is nearby to the Windsor and neighbors to the Sheraton...both expensive alternatives. There are many nearby restaurants that you can frequent and enjoy such as Devassa, Sushi, Terrano Pizzeria, Picanha, Balladino (new), hotel restaurants plus the complex has a small bakery and canteen.
On Friday mornings, there is a market in front of the Barra Mares complex.
Inside that Apartment, is a 1 bedroom flat. It has a open plan that combines the Kitchen and Lounge. There is a large veranda where you can enjoy breakfast and dinner...this is very tranquil. There are 2 flat screen televisions. One has basic analog cable and the other has over the air. I did not watch much television, but utilized the wifi connection to stream Netflix and also used my Slingbox to watch my television in the USA.
The staff at Barra Mares are very nice. They will greet you every day. There are 3 areas for parking of which 2 are outdoors and 1 underground. There is one spot reserved for the apartment. The top floor has a pool and a workout room. To use the workout room, you will need a note from a doctor to assure the staff you are fit enough. With the beach across the street, i never used the workout room.
I am so thankful to Aurora as her apartment really made my last trip to Rio memorable and very enjoyable. We still keep in touch and glad to say that we will be life long friends.
This is a very big one bedroom apto with rips of room. I went there on holidays with my parents and we were all very impressed. The place is fully furnished and very comfortable, most importantly the air conditioning is great, there is one in the living room and another one in the bedroom. Apto located in a quiet area during the day and night. It has easy access to wherever you feel like going. It is one block from the beach and you can get the "Frecao bus" if you have to go to the city or other beaches (Copacabana, Ipanema, etc). In my opinionIt is located in the best place you could choose to stay in Rio (Barra da Tijuca). The apto is part of a well known condo in the area. It has strong security and lots of convenience, such as pharmacy and a little restaurant within the condo. Also worth mentioning the support from landlord who follow up via email to ensure everything went all right. I am looking forward to staying there again next time i am in Rio.
On arrival I was impressed both by the location which is the most breathtaking sea view I have seen and the cleanliness of the apartment. The view of the mountain was also one which shall stay in my memory as it and the sea view by night with the moon and the stars made my stay in your apartment a very special experience.
The cost of staying in your apartment was worth it as it was not expensive compared to staying in a hotel and I had the freedom of cooking my own meals and not having to get up at a set time for breakfast.
Added to this the friendly staff seem to understand that I needed to have the umbrella and chair to sit on the wonderful sandy clean beach not far from the apartment.
Being able to use the sauna and swimming pool and even use the gym were extra
benefits I was able to make use of while staying in your apartment also.
Going on the tours available through the Sheraton Hotel nearby enabled me to see Christ The Redeemer Statue as well as the Sugar Loaf Mountain and the wonderful views from the top gave me the oportunity to take some wonderful photos for the family album.
I would recommend your aprtment to all and cannot wait for my return there this year.
