We stayed at Joyce's for a getaway from the European winter between Jan and Feb 2014. The apartment is located in the heart of Ipanema, one block away from the beach. It is super clean, stylish with some vintage items, half-lilac and comfy. It has everything you need and even more. We haven't used the kitchen facilities but everything looked new and working condition. The bathroom is not that big but still functional. A bit noisy in the morning but definitely a perfect choice for young couples!
Joyce gifted us with a pair of Havaianas and a sweet note on our arrival even if we didn't meet her personally. Everything was set with the doormen that were always available and kind with us. I would definitely try to book again this place for our next trips to Rio. Go for it!
Modern apartment with great location in Ipanema, only one block from the beach.
Thanks for the Havianas!
The apartment, I would guess, has been recently renovated. It is in very good condition and has plenty of space. The design elements added a nice touch and the location was perfect just one block from Ipanema beach and very close to many bars, restaurants, and clubs. The park caddy corner to it has a fun market every Sunday.
Getting in and out was easy with a doorman to provide the keys and a place to leave them upon departure.
We had a great stay at the flat in Ipanema. Joyce was very responsive, and the Havianas were such a cute touch. Loved the look and feel of the apartment...though location was the best part. So close to the beach! It was loud because of the street, but we just turned on the fans and slept though it :)
The reservation was canceled 2 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Very good appartement, perfectly located in Ipanema. And Joyce is a great host too!
Sem dúvida uma boa localizaçao,mas nao foi uma boa idéia.Nao estava limpo (colchao manchado ,panelas sujas...) ,vários itens nao funcionaram ( gas da ducha...)...precisa de um investimento/manutençao.
P.S.: porque nao tem foto do banheiro ou cozinha?
Clean comfortable apartment in a terrific location. The noise did not bother me. Joyce was very helpful in recommending local attractions.
Nos gustó mucho el departamento. Está bien cuidado. La ubicación es inmejorable.
Aunque llegamos más tarde de lo previsto, Joyce nos esperó para darnos la bienvenida.
Nice small apartment, very clean and excellent location. On top of that, Joyce was very kind and helpful. The only drawback was the noisy street and bus traffic right outside our window.
