Going to the beach. There are some rules from the building when you are going to bath on the beach. When you are using sunbath clothes take the first lift on the left and press “A” to go out by the garage. It is not allowed to go to the hall with sunbath clothes and it is forbidden to pass through the hall without shirt. At the back of the garage lift, there is a little water tank to clean out the sand from your feet, the chairs and umbrella.
Removing the trash. It must be put in a plastic bag and be thrown away on the building disposal which is by the stairs on the right corner. Then put the recycle trash in a plastic bag and let it on a basket near the building disposal.
Accomodation was comfortable, near the beach and bus/metro station. Entrance to the flat is equipped with code mechanism instead of key (which is in emergency able to use as well). First we get wrong code by accident, however we found out combinaton. It was no problem as Breno was always available on the phone or whats up, so communitation was great even if he wasn´t physically in Rio. We have to use emergency key, wait a bit long to get into flat one night, however everything ends with happy. For this troubles Breno give us half night free. Thank you for everything:)
excelente departamento, toda la casa en orden y muy bien ambientada con todo lo necesario para ducharse, comer y dormir. cerca de las playas mas importantes, subtes y colectivos cercanos. la atencion de breno excelente, hasta conversabamos por whatsapp por cualquier cosa. muy recomendable
O apartamento é ótimo e acomoda muito bem 5 pessoas! A localização é perfeita, perto de tudo e a 1 quadra da praia. Não poderia ter sido melhor.
Breno's apartment is in a perfect location -- literally, a block from Copacabana Beach! It is also walking distance from Ipanema, so the location couldn't be better. The apartment itself is quite adequate for a short-term stay -- clean, furnished, with A/C (but only in one room), and even has a washing machine (which we couldn't quite figure out how to use). The building is secure, so safety isn't an issue.
Upon my arrival, the Internet was down -- the cleaning woman had inadvertently unplugged the modem -- and I was unable to make any calls from my phone. Fortunately, Breno was able to help me fix the Internet issue via text messages. He also informed me that only residents can use SIM cards, something I wish I had known in advance. Breno was generally responsive to messages. The apartment building is spitting distance from supermarkets and drugstores, so we were able to purchase water, toilet paper and other items without any hassle.
My friend and I decided to leave a day earlier and we were unable to get any refund for that extra day/night. This was understandable, though, given that Breno had a strict cancelation policy that he stated upfront.
One note for non-Portguese speakers: The security guards in the building don't speak a word of English, so don't count on anyone in the building providing you with info or answering any questions. Arrive prepared.
Bottom line: Breno's place is a basic, no-frills apartment that is clean, practical, and located in a terrific part of Rio. Recommended.
