Good apartment in the best location in Rio

  • 5 of 5

Marcelo was very helpful, courteous, and friendly. He patiently answered all of the questions that I had. It was very easy to deal with him. The apartment is only 2 blocks from the best beach in Rio: Ipanema Beach. There are several bus stops (including one in front of the building) where you can take the buses to the major tourist attractions. The supermarket, pharmacies, convenient stores, ATMs are all in the same block or in front of the building. The apartment has everything that you need, is very quiet, and pretty bright. If I go back again to Rio to live temporarily, I will definitely rent this apartment.

Great base close to the beach!

  • 4 of 5

I stayed here with my partner and it was simple but perfect. The kitchen allowed us to prepare simple meals and laundry on site was a great little perk. It is a clean, quiet, cool refuge.

The beach is within walking distance (we went often), and transit to tourist attractions is fast, convenient and nearby. Ipanema is a lovely area- clean, quite and friendly and well worth a visit.

The price was in line with the area and Marcelo (the owner) was friendly and easy to work with. I would definitely return.

Good apartment close to the beach

  • 4 of 5

I had a great time in Ipanema and enjoyed my stay in the apartment; it had a fresh look with a practical kitchen and all appliances in good working order. The neighbourhood felt safe and had plenty of restaurant choices nearby for going out in the evenings. Recommend it!

Great stay, great location, delivered as promised

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was clean and conveniently located. I was glad that I chose this place. Since it is Ipanema, the beach and all the good hang out places are close by. Marcelo was also a good host to coordinate with. The best part about this place is accessibility and the cost you pay for it. I highly recommend it.

This apartment is all about location, the best of the best! Ipanema is certainly the nicest place in Rio, and the apartment is in the best area of the Ipanema.

(1) the very best neighbourhood, wealth and safe (away from the dubious division of Copacabana & Ipanema)

(2) two blocks from the beach (sunbathing, swimming & restaurants), four from the lake (jogging and sightseeing)

(3) the very best supermarket in the neighbourhood is just across the street, serving excellent breakfast and pizzas

(4) 15 min walk to the subway, taking you to the main daylight tourist attractions

(5) to the other side, two blocks to enter Leblon, a great district to go at night: restaurants, bars and clubs

(6) in front of H.Stern's (the famous Brazilian jewelry) headquarters and main store; also close to Amsterdam Sauer, Louis Vuitton and MontBlanc stores

What kind of tourist are you?

(1) Family, children and babies: Baixo Bebe beach in Leblon is 15 min walking distance

(2) Gay & lesbian: Posto 9 in Ipanema is also 15 min walking distance

(3) Single and hunting: You will find great nightclubs in Leblon, walking distance for the strong or a 2 min taxi drive.
