Charming two bedroom one block from Ipanema beach, or up to 4 people apartment in the heart of Ipanema, between the beach and Ipanema metro
Property Description: Bright and wide living, kitchen, service area and WC, two bedrooms ( one suite), two complete bathrooms , TV, Internet WI-FI, 2 queen size box beds, air conditioning in both bedrooms and living, large new refrigerator, stove 4 burners, microwave, small owen, mixer, bed linen, bath and kitchen utensils.
Description of the site: Rua Prudente de Moraes, 10 Ipanema, safe and residential area, surrounded by services, supermarket and restaurants, one block from Ipanema beach by 8th station, near the Astor bar, Fasano Hotel, Felicce and Gallery Café, among others. A charming old building with elevator, only four apartments per floor, intercom and doorman 24 hours, Subway station on the court square in Ipanema Gen Osorio. The building has no garage, but there is option to rent a place two blocks away.
The location is excellent. 1 block from Inpanema Beach. The owner was very helpful in answering questions about the area.
There were a few drawbacks. The unit had not been cleaned very well when we arrived. I brought it up to the owner and she promptly refunded our cleaning deposit. There were also stains all over the pillows and a few on the blankets. The main shower was either freezing cold or scolding hot. I tried for a week to find a middle setting and could not.
The unit is an inside unit, so there isn’t a view. The street below is a main bus square so although it is convenient to catch a taxi or bus, the square is extremely dirty.
I must have gone back and forth with 10 emails to the owner and 3 calls to Paypal before I got it booked. It was a hassle figuring out the Paypal rules. If you pay by credit card and in your local currency, not Brazilian reals, then the massive fee Paypal takes out is refunded fully if the deposit is refunded within 60 days. If not, you will pay to send it and I think she will charge you to send it back. I believe the total is around 7% for each transfer. My stay was within 60 days, so my deposit refund was in full.
If you ever travel to Ipanema, and you need a Place to stay, you should stay in this apartment. The owner was very helpful and friendly, she provided information and tips about the area and local places of interests.
The apartment is located a one block from the beach, in a great area were you will find supermarkets, restaurants, bars, laundry services, banking , pharmacy and very secured !!
The apartment is very nice, clean and very comfortable. Every Sunday you have hippie festival near by.
We had a great time and hope to visit again soon...

Stayed here 2 weeks with my wife and 2 daughters.
First of all. It is a fantastic location, at the corner of praca General Osorio, where the famous market is on sundays. Across the street is Supermercado Zona sul, where you find everything you need. Open 24 hours.
A few steps to Felice café. Ipanema beach is around the corner. If you want to go to Copacabana instead. It´s just 10 min walk away.
2 spacious bedrooms with nice beds to sleep in. Some english channels on the tv. Wifi. The apartment is very quiet. No sound at all from the streets. Well working air-cons.
Also, the building feels safe to stay in.
Maria Helena is very helpful, and lives close to aptm. She also speaks very good english, which is good for all of us who dont speak portuguese.
We had 2 fantastic weeks here in Rio and the aptm. And will be back.... soon.....
Great location - 1 block from Ipanema Beach, across the street from a grocery store, restaurants downstairs. Be cautious, though, with the dry cleaners on the ground level - $34 for 2 pr shorts, 1 top, 1 bra, 2 panties & 2 wash cloths (no dry cleaning - all laundry). Cheaper ones a block or so away. The apt. needs some amenities: the coffee pot is archaic and should be replaced with an electric one; no hair dryers, no iron or ironing board (that we could locate); bed covers had stains on them. The most disappointing thing, however, was the ridiculous 15% fee the owner withheld from our security deposit to "Cover the PayPal Transaction Fees". PayPal charges 3.9% for international payments, so this was a ripoff. I took 11 travelers with me to Rio on this trip (my 5th time to visit the city), and rented 4 apartments, all within 1 block of each other. None of the other three charged fees for their security deposits, so I will be returning to one of them in the future.
I stayed a few days with my wife and daughter and had an excellent time. The apartment was recently renovated and is really nice and the owner was very nice and helpful.
I would definitely return !!!
Tive uma estadia realmente perfeita no Rio de Janeiro! O apartamento é ótimo, realmente como mostra nas fotos e a Maria Helena nos recebeu muito bem no Rio.. A localização do imóvel é muito boa!! Recomendo para quem está interessado e pretendo voltar =) Obrigada!
Located beside the General Osorio square, last Rio's metro station in Ipanema, south zone in city and one block from Ipanema beach right on the Posto 8 point, is a safe place, with 24h doormen and internal circuit tv. Neibourghrood has restaurants, coffes, bars, pubs, supermarket and commerce. two blocks from Fasano Hotel and onde bLock from Astor Bar anda Galeria Café, is a ideal place for business, leisure and tourism. The apartment is quiet because is turned to the back of the building and has only 4 apartments at each floor. On sundays the General Ososrio square hosts the Hippie Fair, a traditional place to find artists and brazilian artifacts.
