This apartment is in the best location in Rio because it is right where Ipanema meets Copa! You'll be at walking distance to both neighborhoods, including Arpoador beach. But paying Copacabana prices, which is great for the travelers on a budget.

Located in an art deco gorgeous building, this ground floor apartment is very safe, in a family type of building, so this is perfect if you want a nice cozy clean bright spot to relax after a long day exploring the city. Bright, airy, in a green leafy street, it's got a spacious living room with a flat screen cable TV, wi-fi internet, ceiling fan and a sofa bed. The kitchen is modern with a new stainless steel stove, microwave, toaster, coffee machine, blender, new fridge and it's got pretty much all utensils you'll need.

The bathroom is also modern with ceramic Brazilian tiles with automatic hot water.

The apartment is very quiet and also in a quiet building, so it is not suited for parties and that kind of thing.

Located 3 blocks from the Ipanema subway station, in a residential area yet close to public transport, supermarket, the 2 beaches, shops, restaurants and everything you need.

The bedroom has a comfortable double bed and the couch in the living room can accommodate 2 people (the couch will have a bed on top and a bed on the bottom).

We offer bed linen and shower towels. But we don't offer beach towels (locals don't take towels to the beach so we don't recommend you do it, so you don't stand out as a tourist :c))

Any questions, please ask! We hope you so come and stay with us!

Guest Access

Wi-fi internet, cable TV, full equipped kitchen with stove and fridge, you have access to the entire place as we rent the entire apartment!

Interaction with Guests

We like to meet and greet you when you arrive but we pretty much like to leave our guests independent but we're always in town and reachable via email or phone.

The Neighborhood

The best thing about this place is that you are conveniently located between Copacabana and Ipanema, so you're close tot he 2 beaches! It is a great area to be!

Getting around

Many taxis at your doorstep, close to bus stops and to the Ipanema Subway station (General Osorio), really easy to get around the city from there.

  • Eduardo (Viviane's brother) greeted us at the entrance, he was very friendly and had lots of good tips and information about restaurants, site seeing and other activities in Rio. The apartment was very clean, modern and spacious. It was also in a great location, just a quick walk to both Ipanema and Copacabana's beaches. Restaurants, shops and the supermarket were also a short walk.
    Overall the trip was very enjoyable-would stay again.

  • Amazing location!
    The apartment is great and exactly the same on the pictures. We were particularly very happy with the kitchen, well furnished and spacious.
    Eduardo is a great guest, very friendly and helpful.
    We loved staying there with our children. It’s close enough to the beach and there is a supermarket where you can get all your groceries (quite expensive, but efficient).

    Although we loved the accommodation, we didn’t feel quite welcome by the building's concierge. He was not very friendly towards us and we felt like intruders. I told Eduardo about this situation and he will talk with him.
    A hint: the wardrobe needs to be renewed.
    The best of it: location.
    A tip: have cheap and delicious breakfast at Copanema, on the corner Visconde de Piraja/Gomes Carneiro.
    Don’t: eat from the bar across the street. The food is very salty and greasy.

  • The apartment are ideal for stop and rest. And confirmation of these words is that I have not once stay here. Very clean, has all necessary things , the perfect area.
    And most importantly a very good aura in the apartment because the apartment owners are lovely people - Vivian and her brother Eduardo.
    Thank you.
    I'll definitely be back here!

  • We had a really pleasant stay in the appartment from Viviane. Nice place, light appartment in a quiet street. And everything you need is available in the house. Next to the supermarket, busstop en subway and of course Copacabana beach. During our stay it was really hot in Brasil but every day it was a pleasure to return in our cooled appartment after visiting a touristic highlight from Rio. Eduardo was a nice host who gave us a lot of information and good tips for places to visit, restaurants and so on. We had a little problem with a wardrobe and the same day he fixed it for us. Great job!!!! We had a wonderful time in Rio.

  • Viviane and her brother Eduardo were great hosts. The apartment was exactly the same of the pictures. we didn't really like the fact that the apartment was at the 1st floor. For this reason we prefer to keep the windows closed. Anyway I can totally recommend this apartment.

  • Hola VIVIANE y Eduardo como siempre el apartamento es muy cómodo y limpio ,ustedes son muy atentos a todo gracias y nos volveremos a ver.

    November 2013
  • Very happy with this apartment. Spent almost 1 week in Rio and this apartment was in the absolute best location. Eduardo (Viviane's brother) gave us an excellent introduction to Rio as well as many personal recommendations for the area. Supermarkets and restaurants were all plenty and we were only a 5 minute walk to both copacabana and ipanema beaches. The unit is clean, nicely decorated but unfortunately attracts some street noise given the ground floor location. Would still absolutely recommend this unit.
