DO NOT THINK TWICE - THIS IS THE PLACE!

  • 5 of 5
The location of the apartment is as good as it comes. It is on the same level as some of the best hotels in Rio. You’d have to cross the street and walk… 50 meters and you will be at the beach. The sand is white and grainy. The water is cool but not cold and ever so blue. The majority of people we saw were young and stunningly beautiful. That alone makes the whole trip worth it!

The apartment is just the right size for a couple, it is clean and neat – if you are not a slob you can easily organize your clothes and personal items. If you are visiting for the Carnival - you might want to get enough clothes for every day of your stay since the laundry facilities were closed on the dates of the Carnival. We did not use the kitchen too much – we were too eager to try out the delicacies the Brazilian cuisine had to offer :-). The internet at the apartment allowed us to stay in contact with our family while on vacation. The air conditioner was much appreciated – we are from Texas :-). The bath also made good impression – sparkling clean.

As if the perfect location and excellent accommodations are not enough, the landlord was so-very hospitable. Friendly and helpful, the lady established excellent communication with us from the time of booking until the end of our stay. She provided us with an agenda which helped us organize our time and visit all city highlights, we were interested in, and still have time for the beach and the carnival - of course. She helped us with obtaining Metro cards (the best and cheapest way of transportation). We were given good advises on restaurants and typical Brazilian dishes to try.

If we'd have to sum-it-up with one sentence:
Your search for a romantic place in Rio for your little gettaway vacation is OVER.

A note to our landlord: We got to Colombo and had caiprinha. We tried churrasco and feijoada, some sea food, and wonderful fruit drinks: acai, refrescos and other. The cafe and pastry were wonderful too. We went to Corcovado yesterday (as it was the Agenda), and still we had time to go to the beach and swim. A big heartfelt Thank You, and we hope we have many more chances to visit Rio again!

Owner's Response: Dear Hrabar and Tatiana

It was an enormous pleasure to meet and lodge you at my studio. I’m truly happy that you had a great time while in Rio during Carnival and I’m also very thankful for your friendship and kindness.

I always say that the most gratifying reward of renting a property is the opportunity to meet wonderful people from all around the world .

I really do like to help people visiting Rio at my 2 studios (Ipanema and Copacabana) with a personal agenda and different advises. This makes guest's life a lot easier

You´re more than welcome to come back at any time,and who knows for New Year?

All my best !!!

PERFECT ACCOMMODATION FOR A COUPLE

  • 5 of 5
We had the most wonderful time staying in this apartment. It is not huge but big enough for a couple.
The listing description was accurate; the location is perfect especially for those who tend to rely on public transportation. The owner gave us many tips concerning restaurants, bakeries, grocery stores, great cafes, markets and many other interesting places. We felt at home. The place is really clean and Silvia was really nice and helpful. We certainly would love to stay here again in the future and will recommend to our friends who look for a nice place to stay in Rio. Once again, thank you Silvia

Owner's Response: Thank you for your lovely review. It was a pleasure to meet you both, I certainly hope you h come back again in the near future. I really enjoyed our conversations and loved having the opportunity to practice my english.There's another wonderful fish restaurant (Nomangue) in the neighborhood, it just started last Thursday and it is just one block of the studio. Now you will have to return to visit it.

BEST RENTAL IN RIO, WITH THE KINDEST OWNERS

  • 5 of 5
This property is the best in Rio.  We stayed for two weeks and it was an amazing vacation. The property is in the best location in Rio, right on copacabana beach but only 400 yards walk to Ipanema. We really couldn't believe our luck. You can basically go to copacabana in the morning and stop by the apartment on your way to ipanema for the afternoon sun. The property itself is very safe, clean, modern and has everything you could possibly need.  The 24 hour concierge is very helpful and always around if needed the immediate surroundings are the safest in Rio, which was nice to hear especially from the Taxi driver as we arrived. 

The owners are fantastic, they were very helpful and very kind, when my bank decided to freeze our accounts they even offered money, this was very humbling...

I highly recommend this apartment to any couple visiting Rio. You will be amazed at the apartment and it's location it's perfect, not to mention being unbelievable value for money. 

There are excellent bars, restaurants and the top hotels in Rio are all within 100 yards so much choice and you don't need to walk anywhere.

This really was a fantastic rental and we will be returning every year without a doubt. 

If anyone would like anymore information please contact me I am happy to provide more feedback to help you reassure you that this right rental for you.

A GEM. EXCELLENT STUDIO, AT A GREAT LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
Saw all the other rave reviews for this studio, and this place met and exceeded my expectations.
Was greeted at the studio by Silvia and her husband. Both very nice and helpful. Silvia's English is excellent.
The studio is about a block from the beach in a very nice part of Copacabana. Went there for the World Cup, and was in the middle of all the festivities. It was amazing.
There is a 24 hour doorman, and 2 small elevators in the lobby.
Once you get to the studio, it is exactly like the listing and pictures. Very nicely decorated, clean, well-maintained, comfortable and has everything you might need. It is big enough for two people to stay comfortably.
The place has everything, from cutlery, microwave, fridge, stove, hair dryer etc. To umbrellas, and I appreciated those as it rained the first day I was there. Had everything you might need.
Across the street from the apartment building was a small street shop where you could buy calling cards to call long distance. About a block away from the apartment was a convenience store, where you could pick up groceries. Many nice restaurants around. Steps away from the beach. This place was excellent.
The studio has wifi, but while I was there it wasn't working well. Was working for about an hour maximum. But there were other unlocked wifi signals (weak ones) that you could use. A 5 minute walk along the beach takes you to a French Restaurant called 'La Maison', which has a good wifi signal, and the food and drinks are great there. So managed to use that for all my internet needs.
The wifi issues seem to be effecting the whole area, as other tourists I met had similar issues.
The studio is excellent. It is much better than a hotel room, and the comfort and location make it a great deal. I would use it again the next time I'm in Rio.
I liked Rio so much that I'm trying to plan a trip during Carnival season. And this studio is the place I would book.

Owner's Response: Dear Jamesh, thanks for the great review of our apartment.

We are always happy to welcome guests from other countries who appreciate the beauty of Rio de Janeiro, the charisma and charm of Copacabana.

Very gratified that we have achieved almost all your expectations. The internet is really a problem in Brasil….

Our joy is to ensure that all our guests leave our apartment with the feeling that they should come back once again.

We will be waiting for you during Carnival with open arms.

A warm hug from me and Saraiva

PERFECT LITTLE STUDIO CLOSE TO THE BEACH

  • 5 of 5
We were met by the husband Saraiva who was very kind and showed us how everything worked and his niece who spoke English was also there to help if needed. The apartment was clean and well presented - good clean linen and towels were provided. Nice bathroom with powerful shower and kitchen was equipped with all the utensils you'd need. We made our breakfasts every day. The front entrance security provided some reassurance although the location was perfectly safe and Copacabana beach is literally 50m away! plenty of supermarkets and shops a short distance away. We didn't use the air-con and just left the window open at night with the shutter down. It wasn't too noisy to do that. The wi-fi wasn't working very well during our stay, but Silvia said they would look into that.
We found the cafe opposite (Appetite) was always busy, and there was a reason for that - they had very good sandwiches and cakes!
Word of warning - do not go to the Centro area on Sunday! - EVERYTHING is closed and feels a bit too quiet.

thank you for letting us stay!

Owner's Response: Rachel and Paul, it was truly a pleasure having you as our guests and thanks for taking the time to write a review on this web site for other guests to read.

We are glad that you enjoyed your stay in our studio during the World Cup and thanks for informing us about the internet problem. We will be checking that.

Nice to hear about the Bistrô Appetite (really good) and the advise for not going on a visit to the Centro Area on Sundays.

We hope to see you again. Who Knows…..
