"One never knows if you are getting what you see over the internet and whether you would actually be happy with your choice? I was one of those skeptical people but was really surprised when I saw the location of the apartment and again when I walked through the front door.
It is perfectly situated in a quiet area but a mere 2 minute walk gets you to the main road with all the restaurants and shops, another 5 minutes to the beach. The apartment has amazing views, I just could not get enough of it. Wherever you are, you look over the entire Ipanema area, the lake and you can even see the sea. I used the small gym on the top floor most days which also has a wide outside area you can run and still enjoy these panoramic views.
The apartment was like being home and has every convenience. It is supplied with every appliance you might need, a washing machine, spa tub, flat screed TV with DVD player...the list can just go on! It is very chic and stylish and one may feel very fortunate being there. Tiled floors throughout, modern and crisp finishes, it was a pleasure coming back there from the beach where a quiet, new and powerful air conditioner quickly cools you. My needs were taken care of and I would rent this apartment again...in a heartbeat. My thanks to Petra and her team for making the apartment available, it was such a pleasure. If I had to grade the apartment from 1 to 10, this would get full marks!"

"Een week lang hebben wij verbleven in dit prachtige, moderne en comfortabele appartement midden in Ipanema, op loopafstand van de zee en met goede verbindingen in de buurt. Vooral de taxi's (niet duur!) brengen je eenvoudig waar je heen wilt. Zeer bezienswaardig is het Christus-beeld en de oude binnenstad van Rio. Het appartement kijkt uit op het westen, dus 's avonds zijn er prachtige zonsondergangen te bewonderen. Aanrader!"
"For one week we have stayed in this beautiful, modern and comfortable apartment in Ipanema, at walking distance from the sea, with good connections around. In particular, the cheap taxis easily take you wherever you want to go. Very worth seeing is the close by statue of Christ and the old Rio downtown. The apartment is facing straight to the West, so the sunset shows lovely sights. A must!"

"This flat is fantastic .."what you see is what you get". Although the building looks a bit runned down from the outside, the apartment is fully renovated with impecable taste and it was rented to me spotless. The location is great!! Safe, close to the beach, restaurants, close to a taxi company and in the best area in Rio. The sunset views towards Lagoa are unbelievable, the area is quiet and the flat is FULLY equipped and it comes with WI-FI. The landlords are very serious people and help you in everyway they can (even organize for you to be fetched at the airport) and if you rent the Guest Suite the apartment is perfect for two couples. There are no hidden costs or hidden problems. It also turns out much cheaper then renting a hotel room. When I go back to Rio I will be staying here again!"

"With quiet and safe neighbours and only about 8 minutes walk from the Ipanema beach, this apartment is both beautiful and practical. The bed is located at the upper corner of the room, releasing a lot more storage and living space for guests. Fully equipped with appliances, the open kitchen design with full sets of windows at the other side of the room creating such comfortable, romantic and stylish surroundings...best way to enjoy Rio! The reservation process is also very quick, easy and reliable."
"J'ai rarement été aussi agréablement surpris par une location sur Rio. Oui c'est un studio mais la décoration est digne d'un très grand appartement! c'est carrément design. Je suis fier d'avoir été le premier a découvrir cet appart super bien situé à Ipanéma. La rue est super sécurisée a 5 min à pied de Lagoa (chic!!!!) et 3 min de posto 9. Plein de restos et de boutiques. J'ai aimé sincérement. Bravo."
