Overview

Rio de Janeiro City Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

RECENTLY REMODELED- Our apartment has spectacular views of Barra da Tijuca beach and Lagoa de Marapendi. Perfectly located between post 7 and 8 our place is far and away from the busy areas of the beach avenue, yet close to great restaurants, shopping and nightlife. Decorated in modern colors and comfortable furniture, the apartment includes all you need for a perfect vacation or business trip: queen bed in one suite, two singles in the other (can be converted to one larger bed), 42' plasma TVs (2), cable television, wireless high-speed internet service, washer/dryer, microwave oven, refrigerator and air-conditioners. A full kitchen, towels, linens and daily maid service are also provided for your convenience.

Barra da Tijuca beach is 18 km of white sand, surf and sunshine. Many beach championships, national and international, are held at Barra da Tijuca. The neighborhood is classified as one of the richest places in the country. It is believed to be the safest of Rio's upper class neighborhoods due to its lack of favelas and plentiful private and public security.

The building's amenities include a swimming pool large enough and long enough for a whole swim team to practice in; a tennis court that is kept in great condition (and is rarely used); a multi-purpose (basketball) court great for a pick-up game; and recently renovated wet and dry sauna perfect to help you unwind from a long day of sightseeing. The building has a mini-deli/mini-market where you can get most of your necessities for the day, 2 restaurants, a beauty salon and an underground parking garage with 24-hour security.

Taxis and buses are available directly in front of the building, or by calling the building's front desk.

So just pack for the sun and fun on the beach and you're ready to enjoy one of Rio's finest locales.

About Valéria Ball

As a Brazilian native and carioca (someone from Rio de Janeiro) Barra da Tijuca was always the best and safest beach to have fun with friends and family. Since I moved to USA in 1990 I've hoped to own a special place on the beach that I can stay with my husband and kids during our visits to Brazil. This apartment is a dream come true for my family and I hope to make more dreams come to life as I share my piece of heaven with travelers from around the world.

Valéria Ball purchased this apartment in 2010

Why Valéria Ball chose Rio de Janeiro City

For the last 10 years I have been renting different apartments to stay with my family during our visits to Brazil and this particular building has been our favorite.

What makes this apartment unique

We appreciate having complete amenities in a perfect safe location in the city of Rio de Janeiro. The apartment is literally a few steps from the most beautiful beach in Rio where you can go for a swim 12 months out of the year. You are also a short taxi ride away from the best restaurants including the Churrascaria Porcão (authentic Brazilian barbecue) and large shopping malls like Barra Shopping, Downtown and many others.

Wonderful experience

  • 5 of 5

I travelled to Rio with three friends to watch the World Cup and were fortunate to stay at Valeria's wonderful apartment June 12-23, 2014. The apartment is exactly what you see in the pictures. Well furnished, clean and in a secure building that included a convenience shop and cafe on the first floor. The view from the patio is terrific as it overlooks the ocean and sandy beaches of Barra da Tijuca. The area is upscale and we felt very safe as we made our way to restaurants and bars. We especially enjoyed the running/cycling path that runs the entire length of one of the most beautiful beaches you will ever find. The apartment was equipped with four beach chairs that we used daily. Highly recommend this apartment.

We hope to make it back at some point in the future as this trip was a 10 out of 10.

Owner's Response: We are so happy you had a good time and enjoyed your stay at our apartment. The city must be crazy with all the extra activities for the World Cup, and knowing you felt safe and well taken care of is wonderful. We would love to accommodate you and your family anytime. We are happy to post guest pictures, if you would to share any. Until next time! Tchau.

The perfect Rio apartment

  • 5 of 5

This place was perfect. Great views of the ocean and back bay both. All furnishings and finishes in the apartment are modern and clean. Better than in the photos. Great communication from Valeria the owner. I get bummed when I rent a house or apartment and the owners skimped out on the small things. This place definitely was full of everything you needed no skimping here! Two flat screen TVs, fast wireless internet, plenty of dishes and cookware in the kitchen. Small in square footage as you would expect in Rio but perfectly laid out. Two full bathrooms was really nice. The building this apartment is in was great as well. Underground parking, full court tennis, basketball, pool, restaurant, small shop and a gym. Loved it here! Can't wait to come back!

Fabulous Accomodations

  • 5 of 5

I spent 2 weeks at this amazing apartment. 2 suite bedrooms equipped with every emenity needed. Flat screen tv's, wireless internet, beautiful decorations and the VIEW! I love the vibrant colours and attention to detail shown throughout the apartment. The apartment building also has a tennis court, sauna, and pool but who needs that when there are miles of white sand beaches across the street! Great people watching throughout the day and the sounds of waves soothes you to sleep at night! I will be back! Tchau
