  • What a perfect time we had here, 4 of us for 2 weeks whilst the world cup was on. The place is in a perfect location close to banks, shops, supermarkets, metro station, bars, restaurants and the beach. The area is really beautiful and safe and the apartment had everything and more. We recommend!!

  • Izhar (email hidden)! Communication before and during the stay was excellent. The apartment was also very nice - great size, nice and comfortable, and had everything you could need for your stay. The location is also excellent, just a few steps from the beach. Will definitely try to stay next time in Rio!

  • Location Location Location! And super safe with great security!
    Plan on bringing your own towels to this beach vacation. The bath towels are paper thin and are child size. No extras to bring to the beach. The mirror in the bathroom is rusted out and unusable. The apartment had ants and there was dust on all the trinkets on display around the home and under all the chairs including a stack of magazines that were between 5 to 10 years old. Only about half the light bulbs worked. First time to the area so I don't know if this is typical of the region. You might be better off in hostel or hotel.

    Response from Izhar:

    Dear Courtney, We do not supply beach towels (as I told you when we talked). The bathroom mirror is a wall size big and got a small rust on it, but certainly nothing that will keep someone from using it. I will make sure with the cleaner that the rest of your comments will be taken care of.
    Finally, you choose to extend the stay in the apartment in another 2 nights, so I guess we did something right..... Thanks, Izhar

  • Summary - Fabulous location, a big apartment, safe building, and a good overall value. When I come back to Rio, I'll try to stay in the same apartment.

    Location - As stated, the apartment is 2 blocks from the beach between Postos 8 and 9. You can walk to the Metro, and buses along nearby streets go literally anywhere in Rio. The immediate area has more juice stands and casual places for breakfast and lunch than I can count; there are also several very nice upscale restaurants within 10 minutes walk as well. The building is on Ipanema's main shopping street, with shops and businesses. Travelers should take all the safety warnings about Rio to heart, but recognize that this apartment is in a great part of Ipanema with people around at all times of the day and night. One of the ways you can "be careful" in Rio is by staying on a safe block such as this one.

    Building - The building is a high-rise on a main street. The doormen are very nice and helpful. They were able to give advice on taxis, finding local businesses, etc. There is a pool in the building. There is also a SmartFit chain gym if you are interested in that.

    Apartment - The apartment is excellent. It is a true one-bedroom, with a door that closes, plus a couch, a table with four chairs, and a small kitchen. It's clean and tastefully (email hidden) for a couple or 3 people for a week. As is common in Rio, there is not a lot of hot water in the apartment. There is a small hot water heater in the bathroom and no hot water in the kitchen. The bathroom mirror should be replaced; it's hard to see anything in it anymore. The apartment is on a high floor and you really can see the water from the living room. There is a small balcony with room to sit outside and watch the waves. If you like to sleep late in the morning, you should be aware that the sun shines very brightly through the window treatments in the bedroom. I recommend getting up early in Rio, but if you like a dark bedroom in the morning, you might have to improvise somehow.

    Hospitality - I didn't meet Izhar, but he left the key with the doorman and was very accommodating with my check out time. I had a late evening flight on my last day. There was no guest the next day, so I stayed late; if there had been a guest, he would have found a place to keep my luggage safely during the day.

  • A great place to stay in Ipanema - only two blocks from the beach, one block from the Sunday market and on a main street with many options for shopping and dining. The apartment was clean and felt very homey. Izhar was very responsive and flexible with arrival times.

    Perfect accommodation for my wife and I since this is a spacious and comfortable 1 BR apartment, 2 blocks from beach, with ocean view, outdoor swimming pool, doorman for security. The host couldn't have been better, and although we never met him he responded immediately to our emails, called us after our arrival to make sure everything was in order, and even allowed us to check in a few hours early and to check out a few hour late. Not fancy in any way, but we were able to cook and enjoy simple meals without buying anything other than the food which we bought at the grocery store less than a block away. Also we were able to rent bikes from a shop on our same block. Metro was closed, but bus service was easy and convenient from this location. Highly recommended.
