The apartment has 120m² very luminous and family ambiance. The house is clear and very well decorated. The room is spacious with a televison, the bed is new and really confortable. The bathroom and the kitchen is shared and clean. Has internet wi-fi access at all apartment. I live with a small yorkshire dog Cherie which is really kind and my daugther Joana who is very friendly! We answer the emails together = )
Family apartment is one block from copacabana beach posto 5 and 5 min walking from the metro Ipanema/General Osorio. Really near from the Arpoador and Ipanema just 15 min walking. Very good location, the apartment is next to the pharmacy, supermarket, restaurants, coffe shops, naturals shops and exchange cambio.

I hope to see you soon and you are welcome with who you love!

Mari was a wonderful host. She and her daughter Joanna gave us great tips for Rio and Carnaval and made us feel very welcome in their home. We will definitely stay with them again on our next trip to Rio.
Tuvimos una experiencia maravillosa en esta casa situada a tan solo 2 minutos de la playa. La habitación es cómoda y limpia y la familia no puede ser mejor. Celebramos con ellos la noche de Navidad y nos sentimos como en familia! Totalmente recomendable !
Mari was an excellent host and I truly enjoyed staying with her while in Rio. As listed, the apartment was private, clean, cozy, and close to Copacabana and Ipanema Beaches. Her daughter, Joanna, was also very welcoming and even their dog was a nice touch. The neighborhood has plenty of small convenience stores and was accessible to major bus routes since it is on a major avenue. I would recommend this listing to anyone, and would stay here again if I were to return to Rio.
I stayed there at the final Weekend of the World Cup from 11th - 14th of June. It was a pleassure to be a guest of Mari and Joanna. They are very friendly and I like the way of simple explanation´s :-) Joanna gave me lots of suggestions for Restaurants and some Hot Spots for the Nightlife in Rio - very comfortable! The appartment is one block away from Copacabana in a very safe area and a 24 hour security guy. I had a very nice and quite room. Overall I just can say I felt very comfortable! Thanks to the very sympathic host´s Mari and Joanna! And I left as the new World Cup Champion :-) Jochen (Stuttgart, Germany)
My friend and I stayed at Mari & Joanna's apartment June 18-25th (World Cup). They were both very gracious, warm, and welcoming hosts. We were greeted with a tour of the apartment, they showed us our room, and quickly made us feel at home by stressing that we could hang out in the living room and make full use of the kitchen to cook and store any food. Mari also took the time to make coffee for us (which is delicious!). Our hosts were very friendly and we enjoyed getting to know them.
The room and apartment location was perfect for us. It is 1 block from copacabana beach, short walk to the metro (which we used to get to world cup matches at Maracanã). The building has a 24-Hour security guy, so overall very safe. I would recommend single, couple, or small groups of travelers consider staying with Mari/Joanna. Also, if you are in need of a larger space, contact Mari/Joanna, they may also be able to help you out.
P.S. Go México! :)

Staying at Mariete's place was a really good experience. Her daughter Joana was very sweet and helpfull, helping us going on different tours around the city.
The apartment is perfectly located, 1 block from Copacabana beach, a walk from the Lagoa and great shopping possibilities in Ipanema and Leblon. The room is simple, but clean and has all the necessities required for a room.
Un accueil très chaleureux! Un appartement très bien situé! Merci à Mari et sa fille!
