Spacious and comfortable one bedroom apartment in Ipanema with a double bed in the bedroom and a new sofa bed in the living room, ceiling fan and two air conditioning. It has Internet wireless, Cable TV, a equipped american style kitchen and washing machine. This apartment is perfect for a couple but it can fit up to 4 people (please take in count the sofa is not same size as a double bed).
Located on a quiet street, 4 blocks from Ipanema beach at the corner with Rua Farme de Amoedo. Safe building with doorman 24 hour and all facilities in the neighbourhood restaurants, bars, supermarkets, stores and easy transport public.
Ipanema is a neighborhood located in the southern region of the city of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, between Leblon and Copacabana. The beach at Ipanema became widely known by the song "The Girl from Ipanema" ("Garota de Ipanema"), written by Antonio Carlos Jobim and Vinícius de Moraes.
It is relatively easy to navigate because the streets are aligned in a grid. Private infrastructure has created world-class restaurants, shops, and cafes. Ipanema is one of the most expensive places to live in Rio. At the forefront of the beach culture are the many surfers and sun worshippers who socialize daily at the beach. Every Sunday, the roadway closest to the beach is closed to motor vehicles and local residents and tourists use the opportunity to ride bikes, roller skate, skateboard, and walk along the ocean.
Ipanema has played its own role in Rio's culture since its beginning. It has universities, art galleries, theaters and cafes. Ipanema holds its own street parade during Carnival festivities, separate from Rio de Janeiro's. Banda de Ipanema attracts up to 50,000 people to the streets of Ipanema for Carnival.
The apartment is great and also the localization.
the building is so cute and the inside is confortable and new.
Really liked the experience and would like to come back.
the reception as so warm and we have even a bottle of cold water waiting for us! :)
Great place, perfect for exploring Ipanema. The apartment itself is well equipped, clean and quite and the wifi worked great. The location is great, some great restaurants and bars (delirium) just around the corner. The neighborhood is quite and clean, the beach is 5 to 7 minutes away. The host were great at accommodating my awkward schedule. Will certainly repeat if I make it back to Rio.
Great host, was very accommodating to my awkward travel plans. Location is perfect, on a nice quite street. Just around the corner from the Metro station, Delirium cafe (beers, beers and more beers), Starbucks and a few other great bar/cafes, not to mention its only five minutes from the beach. The apartment itself was great, clean and cool and well equipped. For the price I think this place is a great option for Ipanema.
Nice apartment for the price. Owners are genuinely friendly and interested in your satisfaction. I would rent it again, and it compares favorably with other apartments I have rented there. The bed was comfortable and the bedroom stayed cool. The internet went out, which it has done every visit to Brazil, but the owner was kind enough to send over a 3G modem so I could at least keep up with my email.
Downside is that this is a long walk to the beach. The price difference makes up for this. This is Brazil. Construction quality is poor and the windows do not seal. It sounds like you are outside.
I would highly recommend this apartment to anyone wanting to stay in and enjoy Rio. It is very close to the beach and located in an area with great dining and pubs.
The hosts are amazing and communicative and the apartment was clean and ready to go.
Second stay here and just as happy with the place and the helpfulness of the hosts as the first time. Highly recommended.
Great apartment and great hosts! Perfect location and the place was simple yet comfortable and very clean and tidy. The hosts were very kind especially when one of us got ill. Definitely would stay here again.
Nós amamos esse apartamento!
Localização (website hidden) lado da lagoa, umas 4 quadras da praia de Ipanema, perto de comércio...
A rua é deliciosa e muito silenciosa.
O apartamento é muito gostoso, estava limpo. Só os armários da cozinha que tinham um cheiro de guardado forte, com uma baguncinha em uma das gavetas... um detalhe.
Tamanho perfeito para 2 ou 4 pessoas.
Fomos recebidos por Guillermo e entregamos a chave para sua mulher, pessoas muito atenciosos. Foi curioso porque ele também nos recebeu em outro apartamento no Rio. Muito pontual e atencioso.
Muito boa a estadia!
We had a perfect stay in Rio. The apartment is very central located, only a few blocks from Ipamema Beach in a very safe part of the city. Everything is nearby, restaurant, bars, bus stations and the beach. Paola and Isak are very friendly, always helped with questions related to our stay and gave us perfect recommendations and tips. We can highly recommend this Airbnb apartment. Thanks to Paola and Isak for 5 perfect days in Rio.
This apartment is well located for the main streets in Ipanema, and is only a 5-10 minute walk to the beach. Paola's brother met us when we arrived and was really helpful, especially as our flight meant we arrived a day later than we'd agreed and we got in late at night. He was available the whole stay on the phone and was really friendly.
The apartment itself is nice, but is a little bit overpriced for the size/quality of it. There is a good shower and kitchen facilities, and for a base while in Rio it's good - but we didn't feel like we wanted to spend much time in the apartment itself other than sleeping.
