This property was amazing! The views increndible!

  • 5 of 5

I loved this apartment! The views were fantastic! Silvana was so lovely and warm she helped to make our first visit to Rio a dream come true. The building is very safe and the people who live there were friendly too. The way the apartment is decorated is tastefully done with wonderful pieces of art and a light and airy feel. We came for the Olympics and we had multiple views of events we didn't even know we were going to see right out our front balcony, that was a treat! The location is perfect, situated right between Ipanema and Copacabana we were able to walk right out the door and be at the beach in minutes. We loved this apartment so much we hated to leave! Thank you Silvana! Obrigada!

amazing location and views, great local support

  • 5 of 5

It is difficult to imagine a better location to enjoy Rio - 1 min walk from Copacabana, 2 min walk from Ipanema beaches, full panoramic view of Rio and Cristo with the ocean at your back. The property is beautifully decorated with a taste for chic and comfortably accommodates 4 (2 adults, 2 teenagers). The feel of the place is great and we really enjoyed it. Above all, the local support you get in advance of arrival and during the stay is unforgettable! Bruce (property owner), Silvana (property manager) and Adelson (driver) were available at all times, providing knowledge, local insights and tips to ensure we fully enjoy the city. They made us feel home form the minute we walked in. Definitely will stay there again next time in Rio.

Amazing!!!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Silvana and Adilson. the apartment was amazing and the description here, doesnt do it justice. Very clean, modern and spacious. Housed in a very secure building in a beautiful area nestled between Ipanema and Copacabana Beaches, we felt safe enough to walk to both on many occasions. The support from Silvana and Adilson was phenomenal, before, during and AFTER our stay. Silvana was available whenever we needed her, irrespective of how trivial our questions were, best host i have ever encountered. I would and will recommend this apartment and its manager to everybody. it was pain free, hassle free and a very enjoyable stay. Thank you again!! Well done....Mike G.

A phenomenal place we still think about daily!

  • 5 of 5

We can't enough good things about our experience in this condo.

The views were spectacular from this condo high up in this tallest building in that entire area of Rio, and the furniture, layout of the unit, decor, and appliances were all top rate. The artwork was varied and intriguing. We spent 8 days there in late November / early December 2012, and there's hardly a day that goes by that we don't think fondly of our experience there.

The condo is located in probably the very best spot in Rio, in Arpoador, with both the Copacabana and Ipanema beaches each just a few hundred yards away. We were even treated to a peregrine falcon hanging out just a few feet from one of the balconies one morning, right in front of us! We were cheerfully greeted at the airport by the owner's recommended driver, and given a tour of what we were seeing on the way there, and he oriented us to the condo upon our arrival there. The housekeeper and property manager were top rate in meeting any needs and conducted themselves most professionally.

An unforgettable experience, and we intend to rent this property in multiple planned trips in the coming years!

Loved our 2 weeks - family friendly

  • 5 of 5

I was a bit nervous picking a place to stay for 2 weeks, having never been to Rio and traveling with our 2 year old son. We picked this apartment because of the great reviews and it definitely lived up to everything people had said. The views were great, the location was close to everything, it was spacious & clean, everything in the apartment worked well including the appliances, we felt safe everywhere we went even at night, super convenient to catch a cab, and the property manager even arranged to have one of their trusted drivers pick us up at the airport. I can't say enough great things about this apartment. Just don't go shirtless in the lobby... the older residents don't like that I found out.

Amazing location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed a week at this apartment and it was great! Everything you want to see in Rio, Christ the Redeemer, Copacabana, Ipanema, two brothers mountains, you can see it all from the decks. We spent our time in the apartment mostly on the patios, wonderful! Photos are the reality, everything was clean and modern. Couldn't figure out the TV even with instructions, but that wasn't an issue. Silvana answered our questions promptly before and during our stay and was very helpful in making arrangements for our late night trip to the airport. Restaurants, grocery stores, Sunday 'green' farmers markets, surf shops, beaches, metro, even a Catholic church for our Sunday services all within easy reach. We would definitely recommend staying here.
