About Peggy Freitas
My name is Livia Freitas Monteforte and I'm the daughter of the owners, Livio & Peggy Freitas. I have grown up visiting Rio as a second home and can truly say, Ipanema is my favorite place in the world! My father is a carioca who married my mother, an American from the Northeast. She fell in love with him and his culture and together they raised us kids to feel equally at home in the states as in Brasil. My husband and I are now raising our beautiful two daughters to feel at home in both places. We live currently in Cape Cod, MA and head to Rio several times a year.
Why Peggy Freitas chose Ipanema
This apartment is truly unique from a typical Brasil apartment as it is much more spacious with 3 bedrooms, an en-suite master and a wide-open floor plan (due to carefully designed upscale renovations that were completed on the home). There are gorgeous views of the sea from almost every room and the building is in a prime part of Ipanema on a street that we consider very safe and secure. Rua Visconde de Piraja is the main street through Ipanema and Leblon which means it is well lit and has cars day or night (not too secluded). Additionally, our apartment is on the back side of the building, overlooking the water, so you receive the security of a main street and the quieter aspects of a seaside facing apartment.

Comfortable and Convenient
We stayed at this place on our trip to Brasil to watch the Olympics. The place is very well located and secure. Right in the heart of Ipanema. It was very clean and well maintained and allowed us a good central set up. The owner was extremely helpful in suggesting places to eat and visit. Everything in the apartment was in excellent working order. I strongly recommend this place and would go back without hesitation. Definite five stars!!!
Comfortable, safe and convenient
My family and I had a wonderful stay in this apartment. It was clean and comfortable. It is conveniently located within walking distance to the beach, many restuarants and grocery stores.
The owner responded promptly when I had questions. The doormen were friendly and helpful (but didn't speak English).
We visited Copa Cabana and Ipaneda beaches, Christ the Redeemer and Forte Copa Cabana. We also rented bikes to tour the area.
We would surely stay here again when in Rio in the future.
Comfortable with perfect location
My family and I had the best time staying in this unit in Rio. The apartment was comfortable, clean and in a convenient location. It had all the amenities we needed and was well maintained. The owner responded promptly to questions I asked.
We had the same doorman for most of our stay who was friendly and helpful. We felt safe and were close to many restuarants, grocery stores and the beach, within walking distance. We rented bikes which provided easy access to the area also.
We would stay in this apartment in the future when in Rio again.
It was a great time in Rio. I stayed there for 5 days with my family. The location was great, very close to the Ipanema beach. 5 stars
Elli from Germany
This apartment is extremely nice. The beach within 2 blocks made it a great location to experience Carnaval at its best! We definitely will stay again!
Great Location in bustling Ipanema
This was a great base for a 9 day stay in Rio. The location was pretty much ideal - 2 mins from Ipanema beach, with lively bars and shops all around, shady streets to walk in, and right next to the heart of bossa nova, the avenida de vinicius moraes, where Jobim wrote Girl from Ipanema. the apartment was clean, a decent size, functional and comfortable. Nice building and a sensible code access system which makes it ideal for families with independent children as you don't have to mess around with different sets of keys. It would have been nice if there had been a washing machine and the stereo didn't work - if the landlord could sort those things out it would be pretty much perfect.
