This apartment was fantastic! It was everything promised. It's very close to Copacabana Beach Posto5, across the street from a grocery store, and there are several restaurants within the same block. The rooftop patio makes the place even better. I'm already thinking about my next trip to Rio and will definitely want to stay here again!
My husband and I spent a wonderful six nights at Valerie's apartment as the first stop on our South American honeymoon.The apartment is at it looks in the photos - modern,clean and spacious.All of those little extras were thought of - quality glassware,hand wash and linen for example.Valerie was traveling during our stay but her friend Ceser was waiting in the apartment when we arrived and showed us everything we needed to know.Ceser is a taxi driver so he took us back to the airport which was very convenient.The apartment has all the mod cons required,including excellent air conditioners - a must on hot Rio days!The kitchen has a gas stove and a microwave so we cooked pasta in the apartment one night when we were suffering from jetlag but otherwise ate out.The upstairs terrace is quite the oasis - the views are directly of the back of shabby high rises (the norm in Copacabana) with a glimpse of the sea but it's lovely to look at the stars at night.
The apartment is really well located if you wish to see the best of Copa and Ipanema.We were up early with the sun and spent a good hour walking every morning.The apartment is on the same block as the buildings that are on Ave Atlantica - that is,Copacabana beach.Perfect.The little French cafe around the corner that Valerie recommended was perfect for breakfast each morning.We were there post-Carnaval so everything was pretty calm in the (website hidden) can be a bit seedy at times but that's the reality of Copacabana.A chemist,supermarket,decent 'per kilo' restaurant etc are all a short walk away.
Valerie was a responsive and gracious host.
We would definitely stay here again!
My husband, our close friend, and I stayed in Valerie's apartment during the Carnaval celebration in Rio for a week. It was perfect for what we wanted of our trip. The location is hard to beat - literally 1 block from Posto 5 (beach 5) in Copacabana and about a 15 minute walk to the heart of Ipanema. The beach is spectacular with many bars and restaurants right on the water. There was a lot of activity around the apartment and it's located on a busy street (but living room and master bedroom face a quiet courtyard) and the building has a doorman, so we felt very secure the entire time.
Cabs were very easy to hail right in front of the building - and also easy for cabs to find when coming back (write the address on a piece of paper and they know exactly where to go).
Valerie was traveling while we stayed, so her friend Cesar greeted us. He was very helpful showing us everything in the apartment and recommending places to go and things to do. He is also a cab driver, so he took us to the airport when we departed which was very convenient.
The beds were extremely comfortable, I wanted to take the Master bed home with me! The air conditioners worked perfectly, it was very clean and designed nicely and the apartment is well equipped with towels, kitchen items (coffee maker, toaster, cups, dishes, etc), and wifi. The terrace was nice in the evening when it was cooler outside, and well lighted to enjoy dinner or a drink.
Overall, I would definitely recommend this home to a small family or small group of friends traveling to Rio. Valerie was a great host before and during our stay and made us feel comfortable visiting a country we'd never been to and didn't speak the language in. We can't wait to come back to Brazil!
Second séjour dans cet appartement, nous avons pu constater les petites améliorations faites par Valerie et Alex. Encore une fois, un très bon moment, l'appartement est clair, très bien situé, c'est un endroit où l'on aime rester lors de nos escapades de travail à rio.
Un grand merci à Valérie et Alex qui nous font confiance et nous laissent prendre nos marques "comme chez nous", A bientot, Stephane et Sarah
It was a great apartment, very clean and equipped with everything we needed like a coffee maker, microwave, iron, hairdryer, etc. There was an air conditioner in each room and they all worked very well. Great location, one block from
Copacabana beach and a ten minute walk from Ipanema. The bed was very comfortable, I slept very well. Great terrace for getting sun and fresh air. Valerie was away but her friend Cesar greeted me and quickly responded to any questions I had. In all it was a great experience and I definitely recommend the apartment.
Kate & I thoroughly enjoyed our time in Val's apartment. It was well located and equipped with just about everything you might need. For a long term stay, we found it worthwhile (although an added cost) to use on a weekly basis the cleaners recommended by Val. Anatalia cleaned the apartment and changed towels and sheets every week. The only thing we found a challenge was the heat generated by the sun coming through the living room windows each day. It meant having the air conditioner running all the time or living in stifling heat. We would encourage Val to put some shades on the living room windows (as in the MB) to help keep the room cool.
The patio was an added benefit on cool evenings and in the early morning it was also very lovely.
Val is very attentive to any need that might arise and offered great suggestions on places to visit and restaurants to enjoy. All in all, enjoyed our five weeks in a nice apartment which lived up to its advance billings.
What a wonderful apartment and what wonderful hosts! Everything was how it appeared on the photos and Valerie was fantastic with information about what to see and do in Rio. Highly recommend the apartment. It is close to Copacabana beach and the metro and taxis were always easy to find.
Valerie's apartment is located in the heart of Copacabana and is as big and beautiful as is described and shown on the pictures. But what makes your stay so unique is Valerie's kindness and true helpfulness. She not only let us check in a bit earlier, but left us fruits and even a small gift. She showed us everything on the map, gave us recommendations and was always extremely responsive to our emails. Thank you, Valerie!
What can I say, Valerie is the quintessential host. She was very welcoming and provided us with everything we needed and more (even the address of the closest laundromat). The place is exactly as described and has all the basic necessities, including coffee and teat! Highly, highly recommended. I hope to return soon!
