Overall Guest Satisfaction

  • Unfortunately our trip to Rio was cut short because of a death in the family but Martha was a really great host, a very warm person, who went out of her way to help us. The studio itself is amazing, very well equiped and the cutest ever! Just perfect.
    Can't wait to go back.

    Response from Martha:

    The short period that I've stayed with Marijke and her parents, I could see that they are very kind and pleasant people.
    Marijke, I'm very sorry about what happened with your family.
    Thank you about your kind commentary about my place.
    I'm waiting for you and your family !!!

  • We had a wonderful time in Rio, staying at Martha's apartment. The apartment is in a PRIME LOCATION in Ipanema - just one block from the beach. Martha is friendly, helpful, and accomodating - she even let us leave our things in her house after our check out. What a wonderful woman! The apartment itself is rather small...but was perfect for me and my friend. After all, you don't come to Rio to stay indoors. I would recommend staying with Martha, and hope to do so again myself one day.

    Response from Martha:

    Thank you very much for your kind commentary Kristy.You and Katie are so special women too. I only disagree when you said that the apartmant is rather small: the reason you felt that was because I put a table with a chair inside. I did that only for you, because you told me that you're coming to Rio for business.
    Dear Kristy , I invite you to come back again, this time without the table inside :) VACATION !!! to enjoy the covered porch again, and I'll give one night free.
    My best regards, Martha

  • We had a great time in Vila Ipanema during carnival 2014! Martha was very friendly and helped us with all our questions. She even got us costumes for the carnival!

  • We spent 6 days at Vila Ipanema and couldent have choosen a better place to stay. Everything was clean, the bed was good, the aircondition was less noisy them normal and the host was fantastisc ( the freezer was filled up with beer, water, cola and guarana everything incluuded, with is no normal in Brazil) The private outside area was great and the localization is the best and safest for tourists visiting Rio. I can highly recomend this place after a mann years of experience retning apartments i Rio.

  • Martha and the Villa were fantastic! The Villa is perfectly situated in the heart of Ipanema just a block from the beach, restaurants and grocery. The location is secured by two gates and opens to a beautiful garden. The Villa itself had everything we needed; it was clean, air conditioned with a private outdoor patio to enjoy. Martha (and Goody her adorable pup) was delightful, handwriting helpful tips in English and Portuguese. We hope to enjoy Villa Ipanema again!
