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!
Excellent accueil: Alex était présent pour nous présenter les lieux et nous conseiller au mieux. Alex & Valérie nous avait préparé un plan avec des repères culturels, bars et restaurants qui nous a été bien utile.
L'appartement est lumineux, confortable et super bien équipé.
Nous étions à 4 (un couple et des amies) le fait d'avoir des chambres séparées et deux toilettes est un réel confort.
La terrasse est évidemment un plus, nous pouvions siroter un verre le temps que chacun prenne sa douche avant de s'enfoncer dans la vie carioca :-)
Hyper bien situé, faut-il encore le rappeler, proche de la plage, de supermarché, de bars et restaurants tout en étant au calme !
Je recommande chaleureusement l'appartement de Valérie et Alex et ne manquerai pas d'y revenir sans hésitation.
De plus, j'appuie aussi l'excellente préparation avec Valérie avant mon départ. Merci encore

We had a wonderful time in Rio. The apartment was so awesome and very clean. Valerie and Alex were very helpful. It was our first trip to Rio and Valerie gave us many tips what to see and which restaurants are good. You realize that she is a really Rio Insider. The apartment was perfect for us four. The location of the apartment is perfect. In 3 minutes you are on the beach by foot with a wonderful view to the sugar loaf. A great oppurtunity is also the roof terrace where you can get some fresh air. Rio is a great city and if we come back (what we think) we would always book Valerie's apartment again.
Valerie and Alex were the perfect hosts and their apartment is beautiful and ideally located. We (two couples) spent five nights in the flat and had a great time. The apartment is very comfortable for 4 people, has a nice design, layout and decoration and the rooftop terrace is the ideal place for a drink or just to relax. Location is very good, really close to both the Copacabana and Ipanema beach. Actually it is only 2 minutes walk to the closest beach (I think it was Posto 5 in Copacabana). The area feels totally safe. A lot of restaurants are nearby, super market just across the street, Metro close by. Valerie also gave us a big map and showed us exactly where her favorite places can be found. Valerie and Alex even helped us making plans for our 3 week trip through Brazil and came to the flat only to bring us an extra set of towels that we had asked them for.
Thank you so much and hope to be back!
