  • Carlos was a fine host, making great arrangements to accommodate an additional guest. He was responsive, flexible, and kind. The location of the apartment is top notch, close to the beach as well as many bars and restaurants. It was a pleasure to stay here during the World Cup!

    I will note that the comfort of the beds in the smaller bedroom was a bit lacking and that the mattresses seemed to be old/weathered.

  • My friends and I booked an apartment in Ipanema with Carlos. He was an excellent host -- he spent time with us, and was always eager to help out. Once, when we were having trouble making a bus reservation, he even offered to come over and help out. While we were making do with our limited Portuguese, it's nice to know that he'd be there to help. He brought a lovely breakfast which was a wonderful touch after the 8 hour flight!

    The Apartment was great, airy with large windows that overlooked a green hillside trees that were home to small monkeys. It was a quiet cul-de-sac, and there was a guard on duty. We felt really safe. The apartment is a compact two bedroom with one full bathroom and a small room with just a toilet. We were able to fit in four people on some nights, but it was far more comfortable when we had 2-3.

    The bathroom was small, compact, and very clean. The location was very central -- I think there's a bar called Delirium about 2 blocks away with many beers on tap -- yet quiet enough. The kitchen was clean and also very compact. There's a single-serving coffee maker, which was a life saver.

    Overall, we loved our place and would recommend it!

  • I really enjoyed staying at Carlos' place. He was the perfect host and gave me many good suggestions for safety in Rio. The place was lovely, with an amazing view of greenery. The flat was quiet and peaceful too. A very well located flat in the heart of Ipanema! I would definitely come back.

  • O Carlos nos recebeu muito bem. O apartamento tem uma localização EXCELENTE, a um bloco da Farme de Amoedo e algumas quadras da praia. Bem próximo existem inúmeras opções de restaurantes, lojas, mercados e farmácias. A área também nos pareceu muito seguro, andamos a noite e em nenhum momento nos sentimos inseguros. Recomendo muito este apartamento!!!!

  • Hello, Carlos was actually a perfect host. His apartment was perfect, it was clean and spacious. I stayed there with my mother for ten days, and it was very comfortable. The breeze in the apartment was actually beautiful, it was not hot at all, it also depends on the season I bet. The apartment always smelled good, even though he has two dogs living in it, you could not make tell. My only complaint was that there was construction at the time, and I think there is a small favela on top of the mountain above us (it is not dangerous nor have I seen a single soul from the favela) but it could get a bit loud on weekends. Also, if you are an animal lover, there is a rooster and some hens that share a love story somehow and they keep ''kookoo-ing'' hehe. But it was a pleasant stay. THe apartment is perfectly situated, all the doormen are polite and very nice. Carlos and Gian were sweethearts. We had lost the second key, and Caros was very calm and nice about it. (unlike some other agencies). The apartment is exactly as it is in the photos. One thing I miss about the apartment, is the shower, the pressure with the hot water was harmonic.

  • Hi:) I would tell you about my great experience in Rio,adding an especial thanks to Carlo and his wife :) I had planned 7 nights in Rio with my boyfriend but unfortunately, at the last he couldn't came with me and I went in Rio by myself. In the past I used to travel by myself but this time I feel not so sure ( the bad legend of Rio overtake the reality), but Carlos and his wife make me feel so confident and in my place, that I really enjoy this holiday, and I am so entusiastic that I hope to come back soon: one week is to short to taste the spirit of RIO:)
    The Carlos' flat is perfect: everything is so near..beach, lagoa, shops, restorants but at the same time is so quiet and safe.I think the flat is in the best position in Rio: located in Ipanema,close to Copacabana and Leblon, you can move on foot everywhere on this gorgeous beaches ( 5 min walking and you are already in the front of the Ocean!!)
    Everybody in the building was really kind with me.
    The guest house was really really fantastic :
    I had more than 2 hours delay on my arrival flight but Carlos and his wife wait for me in the flat for giving me a warm welcome with a big breakfast ( it was so great that I lasted in finishing it in few days), leaving a lot of food stuff.
    The flat is complately equipped, clean, safe and very lighted ( for me it was important also the chance to wash and dry bikini, pareos and running clothes that I used everyday and I haven't so many for the small suitcase) .
    Carlos and his wife treat me like a friend, they have understand that I feel a little bit intimidated and alone, so they take care about me:)they gave me a lot of great suggestions, I went out with them, they solve for me little problems ( the plug for my pc!!I did take any adaptor),they have been really flexible for the time of arrival and departure...
    They let me feel at home!!! I never finish to thank them for they kindness, reliability and affection that they show to me.
    The Carlos' flat is 100% eagerly recomended: if you want to spent at the best your holiday you must choose Carlos' flat.
    Without doubt when I will come back to Rio I will choose again Carlos' flat:)
    I wish you a grat time in Rio!!

  • Carlos and his wife opened their beautiful home to us! The location is just perfect, 4 blocks from the beach in Ipanema and actually very private for such a popular area of town! We arrived and Carlos had breakfast and coffee laid out for us and a warm welcome. We felt at home from the start. The apartment is beautiful and we can't wait to return to Rio and stay here again. Thank you for your generosity and for making us feel so welcome in Rio!!!!!!!!!!

  • The apartment is great! It is only within blocks from Ipanema beach in a building with 24 hour security. Carlos is very cordial, organized, punctual and helpful. He even left the refrigerator with food for the guest to enjoy.

  • Carlos was very nice and accommodating. The apartment was clean, nicely decorated (as in the pictures), and safe. The location was ideal; a few short blocks to the beach, lake, shops and restaurants. The 24 hour doorman was a great added security feature. There was no outside traffic noise, as the apartment sits away from any busy street, tucked away down a side street, but still just a 2 minute walk to shops and restaurants. The only noise that made sleeping a bit of a challenge a couple of the nights we were there, was an eager rooster nearby and some rather loud noise that occurred each morning around 10am each day inside the building. But if you are looking for a great apartment, location, and host, Carlos' apartment is the one to choose.
