What a perfect place this is! The first impression was when we saw the entrance to the building...a huge ornate door, which was opened for us by the doorman. And we were greeted by the person at the front desk (there is someone there 24 hours.) The apartment building is very well managed, and the daily cleaning was a great feature. The apartment itself is just as described...very stylishly furnished, with great care taken by the owner. It's just the right amount of space, and is extremely airy and bright, with fantastic views all the way from the sea to the mountains. And walking distance to lots of good restaurants, the beach, shopping, the metro etc. etc. A very safe feeling neighborhood. I highly recommend this place!!

A perfect place to stay in Rio!

  • 5 of 5

I have been to Rio many times twenty five years ago and this time around I wanted to stay in an apt. I was a bit unsure of this because I wanted excellent security and a desk clerk to answer any questions. Well, I was not disappointed in my decision as this apt has it all. It is in a very secure apt building with excellent service. The doormen and desk clerks will super helpful and friendly. The apt was clean and fully stocked with everything we needed. The only thing it did not have was an adapter, and Marie, the gal who ran the VRBO was quick to get us one. It also did not have a washer or dryer which ended up being no big deal because there are lots of full service laundry mats in the area. Maria was lovely to work with as well. It was such a great experience getting back to my favorite city in the world and I would do it all over again staying at this apt. It was perfect!

Stayed in many Rio Apartments, some are a bit tatty, however this one is more like a 4 star hotel.

Very comfortable!

Franco's place is great! Morgane met us for our check-in. She was wonderful and very professional. She was of great help when we needed her. The location is perfect. Close to Ipanema beach, shopping, restaurants & bars, supermarket, etc. We walk to Leblon and Copacabana, it was great exercise with the beautiful beach view. The building has a very tight security team and everyone is very friendly. Franco responded to my messages immediately. He is exceptional! Highly recommended

Perfect location

  • 4 of 5

This was our second trip to Rio and staying here was a true pleasure. We were close to the metro, the beach and Rio do Sul supermarket. The apartment is comfortable and well decorated so it's a nice place to hang out when you just want to relax. I would recommend having more fans and or ceiling fans in the apartment for nights when it's more humid.

The building staff was quite friendly and helpful as well.

Owner's Response: Thank you David. It was a pleasure to host you in my apartment. The problem with the a/c has been solved (it was necessary to replace a unit) so that if you come back you will be pampered in a cool space!

Great apartment in a great location.

  • 5 of 5

The apartment looks exactly like it does in the pictures. All of the people that I communicated with and met from booking to checkout were extremely pleasant, helpful and professional. The location can't be beat. You have everything you need within a stone's throw of the building. You wake up in the morning with a view of Christ the Redeemer and you can go to the rooftop and take in the view of the beach. We were so very pleased and this apartment really made our stay that much better. I have traveled extensively and wouldn't hesitate to recommend this apartment to someone looking for a comfortable and modern apartment in the heart of ipanema.
