CARVAVAL / NEW YEAR’S EVE / WORLD CUP

Please do not put a reservation without contacting me before. It won’t be accepted. Just for your info, here in brazil, during New Year's eve and Carnival, apartments are rented on fixed packages (pacotes). The packages are of 7 days (6 nights) at a fixed price, so if you stay 3 days, 5 days, or 7 it will be the same price. After you contact me and we agree on a period and price, I would have to send you a special offer with the agreed price and days for you to accept.

DO YOU ACCEPT ONE-DAY RESERVATIONS?

Depends. If your one day reservation fall in the middle of 5 days, I won't accept. It will be impossible for me to rent the 2 days before or after it. If your one day reservation fall right before or after an existing reservation, and will not affect the chance to rent the remaining days, I might accept. Please so not put a one day reservation before contacting me to enquire for it.

HOW FAR IS THE ROOM FROM THE BEACH / LAKE?

The apt is located 2 blocks from the best spot of ipanema beach (posto 9), and 3 blocks from the lake. If you want to see on a map, the building is located 15 mt from the corner of praca nossa senhora da paz with rua joana angelica and rua barao da torre.

IS THE ROOM AVAILABLE / CAN YOU TELL ME THE PRICE OF YOUR ROOM FOR MY STAY?

When you type in your dates and the number of guests, the site will tell you if it is available and the price. It will also include the Air BnB guest fees which I don't have access to. You can also check the calendar availability by selecting the “calendar” tab. If you have any questions about this please ask Air BnB directly- their customer service is very good.

WHAT TIME IS CHECK IN? 15:00

CAN I CHECK IN EARLY/ DROP MY LUGGAGES EARLY?

Depends: If I do not have a guest checking out that day, we can arrange check in at your convenience. If I do have a guest checking out that day there is the possibility for you to get the keys at 12:00, change your clothes if you need, and leave your luggages in the apt in between 12:00 and 15:00 while the cleaning lady cleans the apt. In this way you can already cruise around ipanema and come back at your convenience. Usually this is confirmed before the arrival.

WHAT TIME IS CHECK OUT? 12:00 midday

CAN I CHECK OUT LATE/LEAVE MY LUGGAGES AFTER CHECK OUT AND COLLECT LATER?

As per check in, it depends: If I do not have a guest checking in that day, we can arrange check out at your convenience. If I do have a guest checking in that day there is the possibility for you to leave your luggages in the apt (with no use of the apt) in between 12:00 and 15:00 while the cleaning lady cleans the apt.

DO YOU HAVE A DISCOUNT FOR LONG TERM GUESTS?

I do not offer long term rental: however, if you are doing couple of weeks I can give you a discount. We can discuss that during reservation process.

IS THE APT SHARED OF JUST FOR US?

It is just for you. No one else will access the apt during your stay.

ARE TOWELS AND BED SHEETS PROVIDED?

Yes, I provide two sets of bath and shower towels, bed sheets and pillows. I do not provide beach towels: however, you can buy very inexpensive and cool “cangas” directly on the beach.

I WANT TO BOOK THE ROOM FOR ONE PERSON BUT I WANT BE ABLE TO HAVE GUESTS, IS THAT OK?

This is usually fine. The apt is for two people, so if you want to have an extra guest, there is no problem and there is no extra cost.

HOW CAN I GET TO THE APT FROM THE AIRPORT?

The best way from the airport to ipanema is by taxi. In Rio taxi is not expensive, and if you take other means can take up to 3 hours. If you arrive at GIG usually it takes one hour in between getting luggages, immigration and taxi. If you arrive at SDU is usually 40 minutes. Therefore, based on the time of arrival you will communicate to me, I will be waiting for you at the apt either 1 hour or 40 min later. But we will confirm via e-mail couple of days before arrival.

HOW CAN I GET TO THE APT FROM THE MAIN COACH STATION:

Buses arrives at Estação Novo Rio in the Gamboa area of Rio near downtown. From there you will need to take a taxi. Depending on the time of arrival it can take from 40 minutes up to 2 hours.

  • Great experience! Brunello was awesome! He was super friendly and helpful and a wealth of good local information. I even had a key that was a bit sticky, and he had someone over to change the lock immediately. It's a good situation because someone is in the immediate area to help out if need be. But he is very respectful of privacy and all that. I highly recommend. Clean, nice, everything works and in a great great part of Ipanema a couple blocks from the beach. Awesome!!!

  • We had a fantastic five days here. Brunello is a warm and extremely knowledgeable host - he gave us so much fantastic local information about sights, restaurants and bars.
    The apartment itself is located right near Posto 9 Ipanema - the beach was a five minute walk away. At the same time, the location was much quieter than other parts if Ipanema, just far enough away from the noisier bars - though they're only 2mins away.
    The apartment is exactly as it appears in the photos - we didn't think it was too dark as we just opened the window shades when we needed to.

  • Absolutely a great experience. The place was clean and in an awesome Part of Ipanema. Brunello was a great host and gave us some excellent local tips for what to do in Rio. Have been to Brazil four times and by far the best place I've stayed at.

  • Wir waren für 5 Tage in Rio und wollten möglichst zentral wohnen. Hierfür ist das Appartment von Brunello optimal! Es ist klein aber bietet alles, was man braucht! Wir waren sehr zufrieden!!! Hier eine kurze Liste mit Dingen, die uns positiv aufgefallen sind, als auch ein paar Punkte, die man optimieren könnte:
    Gut:
    - Sehr schnelle Antwort auf Fragen, sowohl vorab als auch vor Ort
    - Rita - die Putzfrau - war sehr nett und gründlich
    - top Lage, sowohl der Strand als auch die Busstationen und diverse Restaurants etc um's Eck
    - Moderne Einrichtung, Wohlfühl-Atmosphäre
    - Kühlschrank etc vorhanden

    Optimierbar/Good to know:
    - Da das Appartment im EG mit Bett direkt zur Straße liegt ist es sehr laut (hupende Autos, Restaurant gegenüber etc) - wir haben uns Ohrstöpsel gekauft, damit ging es dann ganz gut
    - wenn man länger als 3 Tage bleibt wird das Appartment etwas dreckig, daher hätten wir eine Zwischenreinigung als sinnvoll erachtet
    - Handtücher werden nicht gewechselt, bei 5 Tagen war das blöd, da die Handtücher auch nicht richtig trocken würden und sie somit gemüffelt haben ... Wir hatten leider keinen Ersatz!

    All in All waren wir aber super zufrieden mit unsere Wahl!!!
    Immer wieder gerne!
    Danke Brunello!

    Response from Brunello:

    Tanja, thank you for your positive review. As far as the suggestion of an extra cleaning during the stay, usually people that stay 5 days, as you did, do not need 3 cleaning (1 before arriving, 1 in the middle, 1 on check out), but I understand that going to the beach etc.... might alter each guest need. If you had asked me I would definitely provided the 3rd cleaning in the middle of the stay. As far as the towels, I provide 2 full sets of new towels (I buy new ones each year), and there is a dryer on top of the toilet in the bathroom to dry them in the case they does not dry in between days. Again, no problem in providing when guests ask me.

  • Brunello's studio is definitely in the best spot of Ipanema, near the beach, shops, restaurants and coffee shops. Nevertheless, it is located in a quiet and safe street.
    The place is clean, tidy and totally furnished. We highly recommend it!

  • Brunello's app was great, right in the heart of Ipanema in a safe and secure location with a lot of good bars and restaurant. Close to the beach and Lagoa. We really enjoyed our stay and Brunello always responded very quick when we needed anything.

  • Everything was as advertised. Brunello was responsive and timely to any questions or requests I had. This is a great little place to stay in Ipanema - close to Posto 9 and less than 10 min walk to the metro. Brunello has a nice sound system installed that you can hook up your ipod or phone to easily. I will stay at this location again when I return to Rio.

  • We were totally satisfied with Brunello's property in Ipanema. It had everything we needed, and was exactly as described in the listing. It was nice to have ample clost space for our clothes, and the shower was hot and spacious. The best part, of course, was the location. I really can't imagine a better place to stay.

    Brunello responded promptly and clearly to all of our communications before and during our stay. He was accommodating with check in and check out times. I really couldn't ask for anything more.
