This suite is located in Ipanema, in the southern zone of the city of Rio de Janeiro, beside Ipanema Beach, and between Leblon and Copacabana. 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 meters 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.

Interaction with Guests
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, all services, 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.

Sehr schöne, gepflegte Unterkunft in Top-Lage. Das Zimmer bietet ausreichend Platz und die Gastgeberin hält sich dezent im Hintergrund.
Excellent, Maria's place was very comfortable in all aspects, clean, big bed, order, HDTV, Air Conditioning, in suit bedroom, WIFI, etc.
Maria is always ready to help in all that you need and is very friendly.
The location is excellent because you are very near of important beaches in Rio, Ipanema, Leblom, Copacabana and Leme, also very close of Bus Station or subway to get the Corcovado and Pan de Azucar. I had the best stay in Maria's place, I always will recommend
We had such a pleasant stay at Maria's home. The room has everything you need (wifi, room for clothes, own bathroom and even a tv). View is nice and even a small piece of the beach is showing. The room and bathroom are very clean. The location is perfect and as my Brazilian friend described 'the centre of the world'. The beach is in 2 or 3min walking distance (depending on the traffic light), it is surrounded by shops, restaurants and bars, metro is less than 1 min walk as is a super market. Although Maria doesn't speak English she is very warm, friendly and willing to help. Her daughter Miriam is very kind as well. Highly recommended and we will be visiting again! Maria and Miriam, thank you for being a perfect host.
Tout d'abord, je tiens à remercier Maria et Miriam pour leurs gentillesses et leurs conseils.
Pour une première, tout s'est merveilleusement bien passé.
À renouveler :)
Même si Maria ne parle pas français ou anglais, sa fille Miriam, quant à elle parle plusieurs langues. Elle est joignable par messages/mails, toujours disponible et très réactive.
Je n'ai donc eu aucun soucis durant mon séjour.
Concernant l'appartement, il est idéalement situé, proche des restaurants, de la plage, des supermarchés, du métro et des bus.
L'appartement est propre, la chambre parentale est grande et agréable.
Je recommande vivement l'appartement de Maria.
Encore merci :)
A localização do apartamento é excelente perto da praia e de tudo! A suíte é espaçosa e o ambiente muito agradável sem falar da localização que é perfeita , enfrente ao metro, e com muitas opções de restaurantes e bares nas proximidades. A Maria é atenciosa e gentil, nos deixou bastante a vontade! Recomendo!
The stay in Maria's home was excellent! The location of the flat has the following advantages: 2min from the beach, 5min walk from the airport omnibus stop, 30sec from the metro station!! The room with bathroom and alcove is very pleasant and has all you need (tv, wifi, air conditioning, small clothes line and a desk with 2 rooms), even a great view of the park (and you can see a corner of the beach and on the Cristo on the top of Corcovado). Maria is very sweet and open to help!! As she doesn't speak english, she put in the room a little brochure with the house rules and all the informations you need about wifi, check-in and check-out time! We really enjoyed staying there and thank her very much!!
Maria's flat is very nice and well located. We really enjoyed our stay there !
