I understand very well your concerns about safety, location and quality when you travel to another country. That is why it is critical to know where the apartment is located and who the owner is.

Very satisfied Ipanema beach lover

  • 4 of 5

As advertised, the apt is in a great location. Only 3 short blocks to Ipanema beach near Posto 9, one of the most desirable stretches of the beach. Lots of fresh juice bars and restaurants in all price ranges within a ten minute walk, as well as the well-stocked Zona Sul supermarket and Sunday "Hippie Fair". There is a fabulous fresh food street market one block away on Fridays. The apartment has been freshly renovated and everything works as it should. Comfy queen size bed, good bedding, excellent big shower and new washing machine and dying racks. Great stove for those (like me) who like to cook. TV and fast wifi worked very well. Marcelo is a well-organized owner/manager who communicates well and promptly. I would happily rent this apartment again.
