Location description from owner

The State of Rio de Janeiro region

Rio De Janeiro has recently been voted in a top travel survey the best Global Destination. Also it has the highest visitor satisfaction rating (92%) of any where in the world! Rio (a city that,even within Brazil, is the most 'Brazilian' of cities) is also a very culturally rich society with a strong theater tradition,great modern artists,the center of the telenovela and media industries,an extraordinary and diverse musical heritage and a strong intellectual history involving great writers and architects.It is also fascinating to observe the vast changes Rio is currently undergoing.The speed and scale in urban regeneration is unprecedented among any major world city in modern times.

Rio de Janeiro

Ipanema is almost like a small kingdom set apart.The timeless life style associated with such easy access to such an extraordinary beach is very seductive.Now safer than ever,quite simply Ipanema is in a class of it's own.It's where Brazil looks for new trends and is a show place for the nation.It is classic,eternal Rio and the energy is palpable. It is the Rio of your dreams!Tom Jobim wrote "The Girl from Ipanema" while living in this street in 1962 (a plaque commemorates this at no. 107). Although taxis are plentiful and inexpensive being so well located means you can walk to all the restaurants, sights and nightlife for which Ipanema is so famous. Positioned in a calm, residential street canopied with trees adorned with orchids, this duplex penthouse is located in an exclusive area referred to by locals as the "noble" area of Ipanema. Being to the left of Rua Vininius de Morais this is seen to be the safest part of Ipanema, not being in the "shadow" of any favela.Also it has a calmer aspect than the edgier,more commercial eastern borders of Ipanema around General Osorio Square/metro.There are also 2 secured parking spaces within the building available to you which is useful if you rent a car or have Brazilian friends visiting by car.

“AN AMAZING PENTHOUSE”

Reviewed 13 Apr 2015

The penthouse was so beautifully put together with quirky vintage furniture mixing a statement wall paper. The whole combination is well thought of as it works with the Brazilian vibes. It is an interior design feast, really enjoy the place. As for location it is second to none, perfect for a safe walk to Ipanema Beach. Alastair is a great host with plenty of advise on fun and more fun.

“Stylish and Spacious Apartment in Ideal Location”

Reviewed 19 Aug 2014

This 3 bedroom apartment is beautifully decorated and has bags of space. It is in a very safe location and is close to bars, restaurants & shops whilst being a short walk from Ipanema beach. The owners driver picked us up from the airport and his manageress was there to greet us. The owner Alastair sent us loads of useful information beforehand and our deposit was retuned very promptly. Would highly recommend this apartment - much better value than the hotels in Rio.

Great location, just a few minutes walk away from Ipanema beach and great places to eat. The apartment is in a very leafy, green and clean area. We felt safe the entire time we were there and the staff were very friendly and helpful. Generous rooms with colourful interiors and great outdoor spaces, especially the top balcony with Jacuzzi. We all thoroughly enjoyed our time in Rio. The apartment was beautiful and was just what we needed when travelling with our family to relax and explore this unique city.

It was a pleasure to host your family in Rio. Soon after you left there were many,many exciting new features added to the penthouse including a brand new interior designed complete reinvention of the 3rd shower room, to name just one!Hope to welcome you back soon!!

“Fancy”

Reviewed 13 Jun 2013

We were a group of 4 friends, found the apartment super accommodating and in the best part of Rio (Ipanema). best views of the Christ Redeemer and only 3 blocks from the Lagoon and 5 blocks from the beach, everything is happening around you. The apartment was spacious and comfortable with all the necessities. Transactions with the owner were straight forward and without trouble. the building has a 24 hrs security guard. Would highly recommend you stay there!

Thank you for taking the time to send this review,feed back from guests is always appreciated!

Great apartment. Great location. Shops and restaurants right around the corner. International banks (HSBC and Citibank) 2 blocks away (5 minute walk). Great stroll to beach through the shops and tree lined streets. Would definatley stay again.

“Fabulous!”

Reviewed 19 Oct 2012

We stayed as a group of 4 during Carnival 2012. Alastair was very helpful during the booking process and in the lead up to our stay. We used his recommended driver to collect us from the airport and Felipe the property manager met us on arrival at the building. We were overjoyed when we arrived at the apartment to realise we had chosen the right place in exactly the right spot. The arrival briefing by Felipe was very helpful and the doormen of the building very courteous during our entire stay. A minor maintenance issue was brought to Felipe's attention on the 2nd day and promptly repaired. The apartment's location just cannot be beaten and I don't hesitate to recommend this place for your next visit to Rio de Janeiro

Thank you for your review.I do acknowledge that you did have a maintenance issue with a dripping tap in the master en suite.I certainly understand how annoying this can be.However my manager Felipe together with my handyman were able to fix this matter to your satisfaction the day after this was reported(despite Carnival being underway!).Apologies for this inconvenience and hope it didn't impact too much on the enjoyment of your stay.

“Great Trip, Great Hospitality”

Reviewed 19 May 2012

Thank you for the use of your wonderful apartment. We had a wonderful time in Rio. Our kids have fallen in love with their Brazilian relatives and with Rio itself and can't wait to come back. Your apartment worked out perfectly for us. It was comforting to know we had such great space to retreat to at the end of very busy and full days. The configuration of your apartment suited my family perfectly. I have one son who really treasures his private time so he loved the maid's room. He took a fan in there and was happy as a clam. My step-daughter loved your second bedroom. My little guy, who slept on the floor of the living room, thought everything was fantastic! He loved the shower in the master bathroom, (if only he would embrace his showers at home with such enthusiasm!) and he couldn't wait to see what colour the lights would be on Corcovado each night. My husband and I were thrilled to be able to leave everyone downstairs!! Being a bit of an inconsistent sleeper, I spent several hours out on the rooftop deck in the middle of the night. It was very peaceful! The parking spaces, which I really hadn't thought about before we left, were a huge bonus and greatly appreciated by our cousins. I can't believe how much we used them! Felipe was a prince. He was attentive and helpful and is just generally a really lovely guy. Between all of the information you provided and Felipe, we felt very well cared for and I really appreciated that. It was a trip to be remembered. I can't thank you enough and we hope you'll have us back! PS - we all love the Carmen Miranda prints above the couch in the living room. They are fantastic and what a great display!!!!!
