To welcome you to Rio, our Driver will be waiting for you at the Airport to bring you in a Black Car to our Luxury Suite in Ipanema Beach!
When you arrive, you will be greeted by our Hostess and one of our 24-Hour Doormen will assist you with your luggage.
You will get a quick orientation of the property that we call Samba Suites. This way you may get the most out of this luxury property and the surrounding area which, by the way, sits amongst the energy and nightlife of this famous, upscale neighborhood!
When you want to retire for the night, our location is quiet, relaxing and very tranquil.
You will be pampered by brand-new, imported Queen and Full-sized beds with luxurious high thread-count sheets to slide between when it's time to recharge after an invigorating day on one of the world's most famous beaches, Ipanema.
You will be situated just steps from the warm sands of the beach and only blocks from the famous Fasano Hotel where celebrities from all over the world stay year round in this modern, boutique-style Hotel desgined by Philippe Starck; walk by, you just may see someone you know like Madonna, Alicia Keys or Rhianna (or at least their fans).
I'm a Belieber, or know someone who is...
We are also located 2 blocks from where Justin Bieber likes to frequent but that's another story...
I like to cook...
A well-equipped kitchen is waiting for for anyone who loves to cook (minus an oven; it's too hot to bake) or just someone who wants to throw something into the microwave and be done with it. It's all there; imported white quartz countertops, modern glass induction cooktops, Electrolux 'blue touch' stainless steel appliances including microwave oven, frost-free refrigerator and dishwasher, Mr. Coffee automatic drip coffee maker, NESPRESSO espresso machine (George Clooney is extra) toaster, toaster oven, blender, champagne, brandy and beer glasses! Then relax on the patio, sipping an after dinner drink or afternoon tea with the sound of the rippling water cascading down the 8 foot tall waterfall listening to Bossa Nova music on the remote-controlled Bose Wave stereo system.
For those who want to stay in touch with the world, there is a 100+ channel digital HD cable system with CNN International connected to large HD and Ultra HD 4K LED Flat-Screen TV's. Bring your blu-ray discs (Americas Region) and watch on the available high-definition Blu-Ray player or select from the many in the DVD library or see what's on Netflix, it's included.
I need to do some work...
If you would like to catch up on some work, bring your laptop or tablets and use the computer workstation complete with wireless hi-speed internet access
Do I need adapters?
All the power is 110v using a mixture of universal US 3-prong and Brazilian 3-prong outlets with most power adapters included. Europeans may want to bring adapters just in case.
I'm in the mood...
For the romantic at heart, the LED lighting is on dimmers so you can create thousands of romantic moods.
3 of the most difficult things to find in a vacation rental in Rio is a good location (close to the beach and action, yet safe); chic, modern decor & silence at night. I hope I've been able to accomplish all 3 for you.

I went on vacation to Rio eleven years ago from the US and six months later I moved to Ipanema and have been here ever since. Let's see if you fall in love with this great city as I did!
Petra purchased this condo in 2010
An amazing story of a family feud that kept this property locked shut for over 20 years. When I got it, it was if time had stood still with all the best from the 70's and 80's still inside. The entire condo went through a ground up, walls-in complete restoration with new plumbing, wiring, everything. Even the floorplan was completely modified to make the best use of the space creating two completely separate bedroom suites, virtually soundproof between each other.
The comments past guests have made is that it is quiet, comfortable, chic, with all the first-world comforts while being in the heart of the action...AND they were surprised how closely it matches the photos.
I was planning to post photos of this property along with my review but there is no need since the photos posted by the owner are very accurate depictions of the property. What a truly fabulous villa! I would be comfortable living in the property permanently. The furniture, decor and lighting are exquisite. My favorite was the mood changing lights in the rain shower.The ACs need servicing .... But this was minor. We felt safe in the property and it was the ideal location for everything we wanted to do in Rio! If I return to Rio, this would definitely be my choice for accommodation. Petra and Tessa were very professional and great resources.
We are very proud of our property and are so happy you enjoyed your stay. Thank you for the feedback on the A/C. We have since installed three new state-of-the-art systems which we are hopeful will provide great service for years to come. We also just completed a mini-remodel after your stay and had new energy efficient/soundproof windows and doors installed which had to be custom built and helicoptered in. We are very pleased with the results and it was worth the very long wait. We look forward to having you back in the near future.
This Condo is incredibly amazing!!! We could not have chosen a better place to stay.
The Condo is especially pleasant with its furnishings and amenities. The separation of the two bedrooms afforded my guests and me all of the privacy that one needs, and having the second bathroom makes all of the difference in the world. I cannot tell you how luxurious it was to have large flat screen televisions in both bedrooms, as well as the living area. The pictures are exactly what you get. It's also in a very good (and wealthy) neighborhood. There are restaurants within walking distance all around. At the end of the day, everything was in working order and the condo was impeccably clean.
You also get a warm welcome from the owner and his team when you arrive. They are extremely attentive and responsive to answering any questions via email or phone. They have the willingness to go the extra mile which made us feel very welcomed.
Our stay here met all of our expectations plus more. Highly recommended!!
Jeff's condo is great. He and his team were so helpful with restaurant recommendations, etc. We really enjoyed our stay and the condo!
I really enjoyed my stay at the Samba Suites. I guess mostly because I have stayed at countless other properties in Rio that just don't quite live up to the standard I was expecting and paying for. Petfectly situated; well appointed. We could defiinitely see that the owner put a lot of thought (and money) into making sure everything is as it should be and guests are comfortable. He had Petra and her staff available at any time during our stay to answer questions and, if we had any concern, they were available to help out at a moments notice. Travel is stressful enough. Knowing the accomodations are one less thing to worry about truly made the holiday worth remembering. Did I say the beds were comfortable? Ahhhh. I am looking forward to coming back.
Beyond my expectations. I had this beautifuly decorated apartment over NYs for 10 days which I shared with 3 other friends ( total of 4 of us ) and we were all very happy. Perfectly located , a block from the subway, bank , restaurants , bars and convenience store .. A couple of blocks from the beach , hotel fasano ( the chicest hotel in Rio ) .. The apartment has all the best gadgets to make your stay even better and heat free with the great AC s throughout the apartment ( rare sight in rio btw ) there's a great patio with a beautiful water feature. Best words to describe it : modern , convenient , fun and CHIC. Book it now!
And nonetheless the guys are extremely helpful and will get back to you answering any questions you may have in no time! Enjoy your stay!
Great place to stay. With 2 bathrooms and 2 bedrooms it was perfect for 2 couples. Before arriving our great hosts had emailed us very detailed instructions on where the home was and how to get in. When I arrived I found that the concierge waiting for us and immediately handed us the keys and the next morning host Tessa came to greet us. They provided to everything. The atmosphere of the house is very cozy and relaxing. It would be about a 10 - 30 min lovely walk down to the main tourist areas and great eating places. It was really wonderful experience. Highly recommended!
The reviews are spot on. This place is first class. I have stayed in many condos in Rio (Brazil for that matter) that claim to be a luxury property, but this truly is. The owner and the property manager bend over backwards to make sure everything is as perfect as possible. There are always little quirks with any stay, but we truly enjoyed our time. It's nice that this little oasis is right in the heart of where everyone wants to be. We are just a short walk to one of the most beautiful beaches in the world, Ipanema, in one direction and just a few blocks from Copacabana beach. We felt comfortable. We felt safe. We want to come back. We have to admit, we couldn't figure out all the gizmos and gadgets in the Condo (..and there is a folder explaining it all) but we got the basics...and the showers have the most water pressure I have ever felt in a shower! Awwwwwwwwwww.
The property is situated 50 yards from the entrance to the underground Metro station, 1 block from a 24 hour grocery store and 3 blocks to Ipanema beach.
