Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Levy (and his wife) was extremely helpful in providing tips of places to go in Rio and even for our travels outside of Rio. The location of the apartment was perfect for New Years in Rio. It is also very quiet and the AC works well to stay cool in the summer heat. There were some issues with the bathroom but otherwise generally clean.

  • Great apartment and the location can't be beat!! Basically across the street from Girl From Ipanema Park and Arpoador Rock (which is one of the main surf breaks). 2 minute walk to Ipanema Beach and 5 minute walk to Copacabana. Easy access to all the bus lines to take you to anywhere you want to go (Downtown, Maracana, Pao de Acucar, Christo Redentor, etc) Great neighborhood with lots of close options for grocery stores and restaurants, I walked all over and never felt unsafe. TV in the bedroom has more channels than the living room so you can fall asleep to random movies if you want. Levy was a great host and very helpful to make you feel comfortable and know where the basics of the neighborhood are. Definitely take the blue Premium bus R$13 from and to the airport, super easy and it drops you off basically across the street.
    Can't wait to get back to Rio and enjoy everything all over again!!

    Kevin, more than thanks for coming! I surely will be very glad to host you anytime you want. Muito obrigado !

  • Overall, we had a very good experience staying in this apartment. I would stay here again, and I would recommend it to a friend. The location is very good, within easy walking distance, just 2 or 3 minutes, from the beach. The apartment itself is nicely updated, clean, fully equipped and very comfortable. We especially appreciated having a water filter and washing machine in the unit plus two flat screen TV's. The bedroom faces the back of the building. It is bright and airy and very quiet. We called Levy once or twice with questions and he responded immediately. I want to point out that the biggest asset in this entire building is the doorman, Alfredo, who is very friendly, knowledgeable and eager to help. The owners are lucky to have him there, as are visitors like us.
    On the down side, although ideally located close to everything and on a nice street, the building itself needs some TLC. A coat of fresh paint would go a long way to making the entry way more inviting. I know that Levy doesn't have much control over this, put the upstairs neighbors were having some construction work done while we were there and this was very annoying as they were hammering, sawing, drilling constantly even on Saturdays and Sundays, which are days in which this is not supposed to be done in Brazil. To their credit, they didn't get started until 9 am, but we were on vacation and would have enjoyed sleeping in late whenever we chose to do so. This is really my only complaint.
    Our family stayed in the unit for 3 weeks, and as I said, I would certainly stay there again. My husband and I stayed in the unit for a week and then our two adult children used it for 2 weeks. We are all professionals and well-seasoned travelers who have experienced a range of accommodations. This is a nice place to stay safely, conveniently, and comfortably while in Rio.

    Response from Levy:

    Mr. Stephen thanks for coming with your family ! Surely in few months the building entry will be renewed and painted.

  • Believe all previous reviews about the location of this apartment, and the host Levy. It's a fantastic location, and quiet too as the apartment faces away from the street. We were a late evening arrival, so Levy met us, gave us the essentials and then left us in peace to rest - perfect.
    Some people have mentioned cockroaches - I saw none in nine days. The apartment was perfectly clean.
    One problem was a broken leg on the bed, which Levy responded to immediately when I advised him.

    Boyd and Bridie, thanks for coming and hope to host you again !

  • The location of this house it's just AMAZING!So close to the beach, supermarket, and bars!It's just inbetween Ipanema and Copacabana so you can't get any better than this!The flat itself its also very nice with all the amenities..we felt right at home!
    And what to say about Levy??What a great host!He was lovely to us, he showed us around the area to help us familiarize and understand where the supermarket and restaurants were. He gave us amazing recommendations and thanks to him we had some really delicious food!
    He gave us lots of tips, where to go (where NOT to go), the best places to see, how to get there and the best things to see and do in the week we were there for.
    It was my first experience booking with AirBnB and I am thrilled to have found such website!
    Levy is fantastic I would highly recommend to anyone who wants to visit Rio to stay in his flat!
    Thank you for having me and my friend Wagner in your house and make us feel so welcome!

    Saudade do Brasil!

    Elena, and Wagner, thanks for coming !

  • Excellent place in Arpoador beach. This apartment feels like home, very cozy and has everything you need for short and long-term stays. It's in an excellent location. You'll really feel the Rio life from here. It's very safe and and one block from the best beach! With supermarkets, restaurants, and lots of weekly fairs close by, you'll never need to walk far. Levy is a great host, he'll give you all the information you need to enjoy your stay as a local. I recommend this apt and will be coming back to enjoy Ipanema!! Thanks Levy for all your help!!

  • Muy bien ubicado el apartamento de Arpoador. Y el apartamento muy bien equipado. Lástima los malos vecinos: los de arriba muy ruidosos. Y los de abajo que no devuelven una toalla ajena. Aún así muy linda experiencia. Y linda estadía. Buen anfitrión Levy.
