The Space

Renovated and great apartment located between Ipanema and Leblon, at only two minutes from the famous Ipanema beach (posto 9). This fully furnished apartment has a queen size bed, air conditioning, Internet wireless, cable TV, renovated bathroom, fully equipped kitchen, cozy living room and the building has security 24 hours. The apartment has a nice view to the Chris Corcovado!

Situated in the street of Rua Visconde de Pirajá, you will be close to everything, public transport, supermarkets, stores and the best restaurants.


Ipanema is adjacent to Copacabana Beach, but it is distinct from its neighbor. 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.

Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • Super Lage (5 Minuten zu Fuss vom Ipanema Beach entfernt), beindruckender Blick vom Schlafzimmer aus auf den Corcovado, sehr sichere Wohngegend, tolle Einkaufsmöglichkeiten (2 Supermärkte direkt auf der anderen Straßenseite) und viele gute Restaurants in der Nähe (sehr zu empfehlen ist das Garota de Ipanema). Paola & Isak haben wir leider nicht persönlich kennen gelernt, aber auf unsere Fragen per E-Mail wurde immer prompt geantwortet. Alles in allem ein gelungener Aufenthalt in Rio!

  • This is a nice clean apartment in an amazing location. It's perfect - great size for one or two people. They were very flexible with the fact that we arrived very late in the evening.

  • The apartment's location is simply perfect-it is situated in the beautiful (and safe) Ipanema neighborhood, close to great beaches, bars and restaurants. Ipanema/Leblon/Copa are all within walking distance. There is a supermarket across the street and different cafés all along the street.

    The kitchen was perfect for making breakfast for two (which we did!).

    Shower pressure (as noted by another reviewer) is really great.

    Paola and Isak were very helpful, communicative and made us feel very welcome. They even helped us arrange for a taxi back to the airport.

    We loved Paola and Isak's apartment and would definitely recommend it!

  • The apartment is very nice. Located on the main street of Ipanema, just 2 minutes from the beach and 10 minutes from the subway so very handy with a view on the corcovado

    Paola also helped us to organize our trip forward, which was really cool

    Thank you very much for the great stay !

  • Nice place, clean, great and safe location, (you can see the Christ statue from the window...), very decent bed. Everything you need just a few steps away. Two minutes to the beach. Good and quick communication with the hosts, very helpful in arranging transfer to the airport and storing luggage after a very early arrival. Recommended. We would come back anytime!

  • O apartamento da Paola e do Isak é muito bem localizado (perto da praia, fácil de chegar, além de restaurantes e supermercados próximos) e é como nas fotos. É muito aconchegante para duas pessoas e todas as peças (dormitório, cozinha e banheiro) são totalmente funcionais. Fomos recebidos de forma atenciosa e muito pontual pelo irmão dela, Guilhermo. Agradeço também a flexibilidade de horário no check-out. A janela do dormitório dá para a avenida, mas o barulho não foi suficiente a ponto de (website hidden) indico a hospedagem nesse apartamento.

  • The apartment is really lovely - a great space, better than others I've stayed in Rio for sure. Great location, and the room is very spacious! The bathroom is great and water pressure is impressive ! The pictures are 100% accurate as well. My only complaint is that they were out of town and did not tell me who to meet or text/email, granted he (a brother I think, my Spanish is spotty at best!) was there at the right time, we just didn't know who to look for and got a bit worried when we didn't get a text back. Overall though, I would definitely stay again.

  • We had a really wonderful time in Rio, and the convenience of the location of the apartment (only 2 blocks from the beach) made all the difference. The apartment was on a street full of restaurants, coffee shops, juice stands, and shops. It was clean and air-conditioned. The host, Paola, was incredibly sweet and helpful. She met us at the apartment and showed us around, then sent us a list of things to do. She even arranged for our transport to the airport upon our departure. We would definitely stay here again if and when we return to Rio.
