Ludmila and her husband are great hosts, always there to answer any questions you have and yet they give you all the privacy you need. Place was very clean and the location is good with beaches around, dois irmãos mountain and with a comfortable walking distance to leblon and Ipanema. I would come back!

It was our first trip to Rio and we couldn't have asked for nicer hosts! Ludmilla and Oscar greeted and welcomed us to their home as soon as we arrived. Their directions were very helpful - and getting to their home was easy as pie! The bus picked us up outside the airport door, and dropped us right in front of Ludmilla and Oscar's home, at the base of the footbridge that leads to their home. This studio is the perfect size for two people, and the view is absolutely breathtaking. The bed was comfortable, the bathroom was the perfect size, and they even left us coffee, tea, snacks, and two complimentary beers - so sweet! :) Ludmilla and Oscar typed up a small little guide that really helped us get around, such as local tours, the best restaurants for breakfast lunch and dinner, where to go shopping, and so much more. Ludmilla has and was very easy to contact at any moment, and she checked in on us to make sure everything was going well. Their home is the perfect distance to Leblon, the nearest part of the city, and the walk along the coast on the way there is beautiful! Watching and hearing the waves crash along the shore is so wonderful. We truly had the best vacation in Europe, and Ludmilla and Oscar made it even better. Thank you so much - obrigado!! :)

Our stay at Estudio Mares was amazing!!! Thank you Ludmila and Oscar for a fantastic stay! We are both hotel managers for a large hotel company and because of the Olympics we were not able to stay at one of our hotels and decided to stay at an Airbnb for the first time. All I can say is that our experience was perfect!! We are already thinking about going back to Rio with a couple friends next year and we will definitely ask Ludmila if we can stay with them again. The suite is beautiful, it's exactly like you see in the photo's. Ludmilla and Oscar are wonderful and they make you feel very welcome. The location is just perfect and very safe. I highly recommend staying here if it's available, it exceeded all our expectations!!

Thank you so much Vincent and Cathrine for the review. It was really a pleasure to meet and to host you. You are very nice people and we would be happy to meet you again. I am very very sorry I didn't write a review about you. After your check out we travelled to the country side, and it was difficult to use internet. At the end I missed the deadline for the review. We wish you all the best!!!!!

We absolutely loved Estudio Mares. Ludmila and Oscar were extremely welcoming and we truly appreciated the snacks and drinks that they left for us. The location is excellent - a short walk to Leblon, a short taxi (or a longer walk) to Copacabana, and right next to the Vidigal favela, which makes it easy to get to Dois Irmaos, our favorite activity of our entire trip. We read a lot about declining safety in Rio in the news prior to arriving, but nothing could be farther from the truth. The apartment is in a very secure place and we always felt safe walking around even at night. One thing I regret is not being able to talk to Ludmila and Oscar more - and not being able to meet their dog Luba. We ended up busier than we thought and didn't spend much time at the suite. Don't hesitate the book this apartment - if it's available, go for it :)

Estúdio Mares is incredibly charming. It is situated on a hillside a short walk from LeBlon and offers a gorgeous ocean view.; it was amazing to awake to that view each morning. It is a short walk to LeBlon which offers some great coffee shops and restaurants to get your day started and keep it going. There is a bus stop, down on the street at the bottom of the hill, which made getting around very easy. The suite is comfortable and clean. It has a double bed, which is smaller than what we are used to, but after a full day exploring the many sites and neighborhoods of Rio, falling asleep and getting a good night's rest was no problem. The bathroom is small, but has an amazing shower. The suite is equipped with wi-fi, which functioned well, though not quite at the level we are used to in our home in Chicago, Illinois. The private room and bath are a separate tier from the rest of the house. There is an entrance to the house and a separate entrance to this unit. The suite was stocked with bottles of water, snacks, dishes, a refrigerator and coffeemaker. Importantly, we felt very safe in the suite and walking home in the evening. This is a great space to come home to after a day of sightseeing, an evening out or a sun-filled day at one of the great beaches. Ludmila and Oscar are great hosts. Both are very friendly and we immediately felt comfortable with them. They were accessible but not ever present. We enjoyed getting to know them and, had we had more time, it would have been nice to share a morning coffee just to get to know them better. Like all of the hosts we have encountered using AirBnB, they made our stay comfortable and private. They were solicitous of our needs and very accommodating to our few requests. Our flight arrived at 9:00 am and they let us drop our bags off early, so as not to have to drag them around Rio until check in time at 2 pm. On our last day, we were able to stay later as no one was checking in after us, eliminating the need of figuring out what to do with our luggage between a 10 am checkout and 9:30 pm flight. Ludmila speaks English, which helped me because I (Scott), regretfully, speak very little Portuguese. She was always responsive when needed, which was fairly infrequent for us. She provided information on things to see and navigating the city. She was concerned about the level of noise associated with a remodel of a neighboring home, but that was not a bother. If we had trouble sleeping, the sound of the waves below our window provided a relaxing lullaby. We had a great time in Rio, made even moreso by the welcome Ludmila and Oscar provided. Our only regret was that our stay was just too short.

Thank you so much Scott and Raylson for the complete and positive review!! We also felt a familiarity with you as if you were already known to us. Yes, it would have been very good to know each other more, if there was time. We send you the best wishes!! Um abraço, Ludmila e Oscar

Well deserved superhost. Ludmila was warm and accommodating. The studio had an epic view, good wifi shower and bed. Location is affordable bus or taxi to key attractions. Uber/taxi struggled with the address though so I would suggest drop off and pick up at the Sheraton and walking 5 min.

This was one of my absolutefavorite experiences with Airbnb. Ludmila and Oscar are very warm and welcoming people who are very keen that their guests have a great stay in Rio. I loved apartment. The view is fantastic! Close to the beach at Vidigal but also Leblon with cosy coffeshops, restaurants and shopping. The area is very quiet and you feel safe . I walked home without any problems by myself in the evenings. I can only recommend this accommodation, and I look forward to one day come back.
