Amazing place!!! Just in love with this perfect apartment. My boyfriend and I stayed there for 5 days and we loved it. The view is amazing, the ap as beautiful as the pictures, very clean, 15 minutes walk from Leblon beach, really quiet, you only hear the noise of the ocean! We are going back in april! Jeanne was an amazing host and let us let our luggage on our departure day and take a shower. Thanks for everything!
This is the most beautiful place we have ever stayed at.
The interior is bright and colorful, and the view is amazing.
Close to the house there is a bus station where you also easily can find a cab.
The beach is close, but it takes about 10, 15 min to reach it, walking around the Sheraton complex. The atmosphere on the beach is family friendly. The waves are big though, which could be a problem for very small children. But our 7 year old son thought it was funny.
Grocery shopping is around 10min away on foot. It is a small super market and the range of goods are between small and medium.
This is a great place to stay if you don´t want to live in the middle of a busy street or neighborhood, but still want easy access to the city.
We strongly recommend it. It is great value for money (jan 2014).
Jeanne is very helpful and easy to deal with.
a fantastic place. beautiful cozy colourful studio, delightful decoration and furnishings. beautiful sea views, easy access to a quiet beach and a short walk to leblon beach. we had a lovely few days there, we ate out on the terrace and enjoyed the view and the sound of the sea. Jeanne and her family are great very friendly and helpful, speak very good english and gave us a lift back from the local supermarket and invited us to try out the jacuzzi one evening.
can't recommend it highly enough, fantastic, thank you.
Somos un matrimonio y nuestra hija,Arribamos a Rio de janeiro el 25 de enero, nos estaba esperando Janne, una Anfitriona Alegre, calida, simpatiquisima,generosa y muchas cualidaes mas!! Su loft es Realmente hermoso, como toda la casa de la familia, rodeado de una vegetacion unica, frente al mar, sumamente impecable, Janne te aconseja lo ideal para que tu estancia sea realmente agradable!! El barrio Vidigal como todo Rio es Sumamente seguro!! a toda hora del dia y de la noche, nosotros volviamos de madrugada y las 24 hs del dia, ( siempre en bus) ademas para los mas inseguros, hay custodia policial, te puedes mover con mucha tranquilidad. No dejes de visitar la favela Roshinia pero por tus propios medios!! es muy seguro!!! tomas una Vans en la entrada hasta lo mas alto por solo 2.75 reales y alla desde las 9 hs hasta 16.30 o 17 hs hasta puedes encontrarte con una feria de artesanos, volvimos caminando, tiene unas vistas maravillosas, gente buena y de trabajo y luego hemos ido tres veces mas hacer las compras!!. hay que visitar Santa teresa llegamos en bus y metro, como a las 18 hs y luego nos fuimos a conocer la noche de Lapa( todo en bus y sin problemas de inseguridad) la Playa que mas nos impacto por su belleza en la arena, el agua y la tranquilidad es Barra de Tiyuca pero debes tomar un bus hasta sao Conrado y otro que va hasta barra ( TIEMPO UNA MEDIA HORA PERO ES MUYYY LINDO!!). Pero a tan solo unos minutos podes bañarte en las aguas de la playa de Leblon. En tu ida y vuelta pasa el Bus Empresa Real Nº 2018 de Aeroperto que puedes bajarte en el hotel Sheraton igual que a tu vuelta. GRACIAS!!! JANNE por tus consejos y hacer de nuestro Estadia unos Dias Inolvidables!!! Volveria a visitar el mismo hospedaje y lo recomendaria todas las veces necesarias para aquellos que tengan el Privilegio de conocer Rio de Janeiro . Fernando, Melina, Marcela
The house is amazing! It has a great view and is very comfortable. Jeanne was so kind and helpful. The location is not great (I didn't like Vidigal beach) but the view would be not possible in Leblon or other beaches. You need to walk 10/15 min to reach Leblon beach or to take a bus, 2 min to Leblon or 15 to Ipanema.
I absolute recommend this house, except for older people or kids under 3 (lots of steps to the street!).
We had a great time in Rio!!!
Jeanne's beachhouse was so lovely we came back! One of the best things about staying here is the big comfortable bed :-) Thank you Jeanne!!!!!
Even though Jeanne was away when we stayed at the beach house she was an extremely attentive host, constantly in touch by email making sure we had everything we needed. Jeanne is so warm, friendly and accommodating, it was a pleasure to be her guests.
The house itself is a 15 minute walk from Leblon on a hill over looking the main road. The road is noisy so bring earplugs if you are a light sleeper. The view is of Vidigal beach and hearing the waves and seeing such a lovely view ever day was wonderful. There is a patio with a hammock and a table and chairs and also a terrace on the roof which was perfect for morning yoga practice. We wanted a place with a kitchen but it was so cheap to eat out, we didn't really utilise the kitchen here.
The area of Leblon is lovely, nice shops and restaurants but expensive but a great place to explore and relax and being so near the beaches of Leblon and Ipanema is amazing. You really feel like you are in your own private sanctuary away from the hustle and bustle of the more central areas of Rio. I wouldn't have wanted to stay anywhere else and I would definitively come back again and recommend this accommodation to anyone looking to stay in Rio.
The whole month we spend in Rio Jeanne and Atillio has been great and hospitable hosts. We felt like family.
The appartment is a dream. It's located between the exclusive Leblon and the vibrant Vidigal and the city rain forest. It has a wunderfull ocean view and is equipped with everything a guest would need.
Two Highlights of our holiday were that tour through the rainforest park Jeanne took us and the wunderfull dinner were Jeanne and Attilio served a delicious vegetarian Fejoada.
It was a perfect stay in Rio. We only staid for 3 nights, but where overwelmed with the hospitality of Jeanne and her man. When leaving we could leave our bags to visit Rio's most pictured statue.
The location is very good, but better to tell the cab drivers to go to Sheraton (Leblon) Hotel as it is very close and for cab drivers a known place.
Jeanne could also supply us with beach towels and an address for a bike rental. doing biking in Rio is a must :-).
If we go back to Rio this would be our place.
Jeanne fue una anfitriona muy cordial. El departamento es muy agradable y limpio; tiene los enseres indispensables para cocinar. La vista del mar es maravillosa pero la playa de Vidigal es poco concurrida y conviene ir a la de Leblon que se encuentra alrededor de 800 m.
