This spacious, comfortable, clean, air-conditioned, private room with in-suite bathroom is situated in the most sought-after area of Rio and located 1 block from Ipanema Beach, minutes from Copacabana, with easy access to Metro/bus/taxi, restaurants!
This suite is located in Ipanema, in the southern zone of the city of Rio de Janeiro, beside Ipanema Beach, and between Leblon and Arpoador. Ipanema Beach became world famous for the song "The Girl from Ipanema" ( "Garota de Ipanema" ), written by Antonio Carlos Jobim and Vinicius de Moraes .
The building is located in a prime and safe area facing General Osório Square, between Prudente de Morais and Visconde de Pirajá streets. The Metro station (Ipanema - General Osorio) is 80 metres away. The beach is just a short block away . Famous Copacabana Beach is only a 10 minute walk away. The building is surrounded by a wide variety of restaurants, bars, boutiques , and everything else you may need.

From the living room window one can see part of Ipanema Beach, Corcovado (Christ the Redeemer), Morro Dois Irmãos (“Two Brothers Mountain”) one of the the postcards of Ipanema, and a full view of General Osório Square.

Guests have sole use of the bedroom and bathroom. Kitchen is available for preparing breakfasts and for storing perishables in the refrigerator. Living Room and dining room are available if guests want to relax outside their room.
I pretty well keep to myself and stay in my room or the kitchen most of the time. Most of the time, guests don't even know if I am in or out. I speak Portuguese only, and can give helpful information about the neighborhood. My daughter is fluent in English and can be reached by email at most hours of the day.
Very close to restaurants, Ipanema,Copacabana, and Leblon beaches, transportation, and souvenir shopping. This is the prime location in all of Rio.
Metro station is 80 metres from my apartment. Buses connecting to all parts of Rio stop at the Square across the street. Taxis pass right in front of the building.
Flexible check-in and check-out times depending on vacancy level. If other guests arriving the same day, departing guests may leave luggage in the apartment and return later to catch night flights.
Maria é uma excelente anfitriã, gentil, educada e atenciosa. O apartamento é bem cuidado, perto da praia, metrô, cafés, restaurantes, além de ter um bom fluxo de taxi na porta. Gostei muito da estadia e recomendo a todos que queiram se hospedar no Rio.
This apartment is in the best location! Close to the beaches Impanema, Leblon and Copacabana walking distance and available transport. The apartment is wonderful and comfortable, it has views to see the Jesus Christ, Osorio garden, fresco markets on tuesdays, cafe, restaurants and bars. Maria is an excellent host who is very helpful and friendly. If I come back to Rio, I would definitely stay here and give highly recommendation. :-))
My BF and I spent 9 lovely days at Maria's place.The place is extremely clean - it felt like we were staying at a hotel (literally!)! Great location and views, you can see the beach and the Hippie Market. Air conditioning worked perfectly and also has a ceiling fan. Maria is a lovely person, you will feel you are staying with a family member. She does not speak English but we understood each other just fine (me with my (website hidden) translator and the help of my Spanish). If you must speak English you can email her daughter and she will get back to you right away. I have 0 negative feedback. My stay at Maria's simply made my trip to Rio all the better!! Highly recommend!!
We can only recommend this place! The location is superb one block from Ipanema beach and excellent shopping incl. nice supermarket and cafes/restaurants. Staying with Maria has been a pleasure - she only speaks portuguese but her daughter Miriam is very attentive and helpful on email. You can only enjoy Rio if you choose to stay here!
Maria is a wonderful person, very helpful when you need to know how to go somewhere or just to eat something. The apartment is big and the room has everything you need. It's very clean. Maria gives you privacy and most of the time you don't know if she is in the apartment or not. It's near everything you will need and subways. Miriam (her daughter) can always help you too. Like I said to Maria I felt like in my grandma's house.
Maria is a nice host. The location of the place is superb, really very close to Ipanema beach where you can go during the day or to have a walk in the night, in a safe place. The room has its own barhroom and you can use the kitchen for your breakfast. I suggest this place to anyone wishing to spend some days in Rio.
Maria was a great host! We wished to stay longer. The Apartment is perfectly located, very clean and you have everything you need. We don't speak portuguese but there is english Information available in the room. Maria doesn't speak english but was very friendly to us! Thank you Maria, for hosting us!!!! We would like to come back.
Maria is very pleasant and sweet, we had a good time when we stayed in her place, comfortable and clean, location is one major factor, so close to everything. Even though we did not not speak the same language, we were able relate some how.Thank you Maria for sharing your place to us, it felt like home.
It was very nice to stay at Maria's place, the location es excellent, very close to the metro station and very close to the best part of Ipanema beach. We really enjoyed it.
The appartment is such a beautiful place, clean, comfortable, with great view and well located. María is quite shy but nice. The use of the kitchen is allowed only for making breakfast and snacks. We had a really good time there and recommend it!
