What a joy it was to stay at "Ipanema Village," and be hosted by Marcia! I felt really great about the decision I made, and was really glad I followed my instinct on all the various options here on AirBnb in and near Ipanema. / If you want a taste of the old world Ipanema, when Astrid Gilberto was singing Bossa Nova, and Jobim composing, this is the place to stay. It has great charm, character, and inspires relaxation and reverie. / My emails with Marcia gave me a degree of trust and comfort that I was staying somewhere safe and welcoming. During my visit my interactions with her were so warm, inviting and lovely...in acquainting me with the culture and locale. / I would gladly return to her property, or recommend it to others. / If you want "chic" or "modern" this isn't likely your vibe, and there are plenty of hi-rises in Ipanema and nearby. / But, with less than a block to walk to the beach, the fabulous restaurant Zaza, or the amazing Bossa Nova club Vinicius, what's not to like? / There is also the added perk of "Benta," the skiddish but sweet and adorable house cat. If you're a cat person you'll enjoy flirting with you as you wish and seeing her warm up to you over your stay. / - Paul
I really enjoyed staying the Ipaneme Village. I felt like at home - Marcia, the property owner treated me like a family member. The appartment was excellently equiped, including kitchen, and I found there everything I needed plus many more. Beutifull garden was another plus. And still one block from the Ipanema beach. What a pleasant difference compared to anonymous hotel environments.
A Márcia foi uma EXCELENTE pessoa em todos os tratos em que tivemos. Todos os demais presentes na Vila foram super atenciosos e educados sempre que interagimos.
Ela foi muito compreensiva com o problema na nossa chegada por termos tido problema com a Cia Aérea.
"A vila é um pequeno paraíso cercado pela selva de pedras da cidade grande."
A localidade é excelente a alguns metros do posto 9 de Ipanema, muitos bares, restaurantes, padarias e todas demais conveniências necessárias com acesso fácil. Muitos lugares inclusive indicados pela Dona Márcia para quem não conhece a cidade.
Our stay at Marcia's apartment was excellent. The apartment was exactly as shown. It has a lovely bright courtyard which is a nice escape from the busy streets of Rio. Marcia and Martha also left complementary snacks and refreshments for us which were very much appreciated! We did not have the chance to meet Marcia, though she did check in with us periodically during our stay to make sure everything was ok. We instead met her sister, Martha who was very helpful, friendly, and took very good care of us. Marcia and Martha live in the same building so they are always available if you need help. Ipanema was the perfect location for our stay in Rio. The apartment is one block from the beach and only a couple of minutes from great restaurants, groceries, and shopping. I would recommend this apartment to anyone staying in Rio!
Hi guys! Thanks so much for such a polite commentary.
I am feeling so unlucky about our meeting failure; I am sure I would have loved knowing you.
I am going to cross fingers - who knows? Maybe we may have another opportunity to meet each other.
Wish you the best!
We loved Marcia's place! It's just as good as it looks in the photos. Really peaceful and beautiful. It's in a perfect location for beach lovers and shoppers. Marcia is so nice and helpful and we would definitely recommend this place to other people.
More than perfect location in Rio! just next to ipanema beach. Very safe location and neighborhood, the apartment is so sweet and welcoming , everything in place for our comfort . Marcia was wonderful host, very kind and delicate , helped and advices us during our stayed. We strongly recommend this cute place to stay in Rio !
Great location in Ipanema, 5 minutes walk from Posto 9, shops, restaurants and bus to visit most to-go places in Rio. About 10 minutes from the metro station.
Nice well equiped appartment (e.g. air con in the room, bier in the fridge, beach chairs etc) in a garden courtyard that make you forget that you are in a lively area.
Martha is a very kind host who gave us useful tips: thanks again!
