Martha is a warm and wonderful host. She is there with advice and guidance when you need it but she also gives you all the privacy and peace you need on holiday. A perfect combination.
Vila Ipanema is a real find. Almost secretly located amongst Ipanema hustle and bustle and modern facade Martha has a beautiful traditional house tucked away. As you enter the very private and secure gate you are faced with a beautiful courtyard garden where she grows many orchids and tropical plants. The Vila itself is self-contained behind its own private wall enclosing a covered sitting area - perfect for relaxing in the evening. The accommodation itself is small but functional with all you need for a short stay.
Martha had even stocked the fridge with basic for our stay which was very welcome after a long journey. So, if you're looking for something a little different, very private, reasonably priced and bit of 'real' Rio that is nonetheless a very short walk from the beach - this is an ideal location.

Hi Paddy and Sue, I'm so thankful for your nice words about me and my STUDIO.
I 'm so so happy to have met you, such a lovely couple !!!
The flowers you've gave me, are at my living room still very very beautiful !!! People like you remember me why to be a host !
You're generous, kind, nice, polite, beautiful, lovely, agreable, and I 'm proud to have met you !
Thank you for this week you've been next to me!
You will always be in my heart!
100% perfect in every way. We could not fault Our host Martha or her very special villa in Rio. We stayed for Carnival and the villa was in the best location with absolutely everything we could have needed and more. We arrived on my husbands birthday and beautiful Martha had decorated the villa and organised a cake and bubbles for our arrival, she made our time special from the moment we walked through the gate. Martha's smile is contagious and the villa is a home away from home in the perfect location. We would recommend staying at this villa without any hesitation, you do not need to look any further! Can't wait to hopefully visit again x
Martha is a wonderful host!!! The most caring and sympathetic we met so far! As soon as we arrived, we felt home! Martha was full of attention and so helpful for my husband and I. We already know Rio very well but Martha is the perfect host for who visits Rio for the first time. We spent 12 days in her cosy apartment. At our arriving, Martha had filled up the fridge with so many drinks and some welcome food. She was changing the towels and the blankets during our stay. We had all our privacy. The apartment is as on the pictures. The little garden is a sweet place to write and have breakfast. The apartment is quite small and there is not much outside light but there is everything you need, it's functional, clean and cosy. The bed is confortable and the internet was good! The location is perfect, near everything! Some steps from the beach (Martha thinks about everything and let some chairs and parasol), 10 minutes (slow) walk to the subway, good restaurants (we suggest you the one on the corner, amazing!), all the buses on the corner... We had a beautiful time there and recommend to anyone! :)
Martha was a fantastic host! She made some wonderful restaurant and neighborhood recommendations and went above and beyond to make sure we had a comfortable stay. The studio's location can't be beat - just a block off Ipenema beach.
Martha and her casita were phenomenal. We arrived late at night to Martha warmly welcoming us with some snacks and free drinks. She couldn't have been nicer and more organized. She was able to provide us with directions, recommendations and really everything we needed and more. The location couldn't be more central in Ipanema plus you have the bonus of your own private jungle garden. Thank you so much Martha.
The house is really cozy, with a lot of plants and a nice place to relax. Martha is the most thoughtful person ever! She was always open for any doubts and she makes sure all the time that we are comfortable and have everything we need. For sure the best place to stay in Rio when you wanna be relaxed but still wanna enjoy the most beautiful area in Rio! Thanks for everything, Martha! We'll see each other again really soon!!
A experiência foi ótima. Nossa melhor viagem ao Rio. A Martha é uma anfitriã incrível, sempre bem humorada e atenciosa. A casa é muito confortável e tem tudo o que vc precisa para uma viagem como essa. A localização é excelente, apenas uma quadra da praia. Muitas lojas e restaurantes próximos. Pretendemos voltar e com certeza recomendamos!
