It's a one bedroom apartment in an apart-hotel in Ipanema close to the beach and also the metro station.
The rent includes 1cable tv (in the bed roon),1 DVD tv ( in the living roon with hundred of DVDs movies and series to choose), wireless internet, equiped kitchen, cleaning service every days( without extra charges), swimming pool, sauna as in a real hotel with the advantage and all facilities that an apartment can offer. There is also parking in the building for those coming by car (without extra charges).
The apartment has view to the "Dois Irmãos" mountain and is silent cause the view is to the inside area and not to the street and its busy bus traffic.
Ipanema is adjacent to Copacabana Beach, but it is distinct from its neighbor. It is relatively easy to navigate because the streets are aligned in a grid.
Private infrastructure has created world-class restaurants, shops, and cafes. Ipanema is one of the most expensive places to live in Rio. At the forefront of the beach culture are the many surfers and sun worshippers who socialize daily at the beach.
Every Sunday, the roadway closest to the beach is closed to motor vehicles and local residents and tourists use the opportunity to ride bikes, roller skate, skateboard, and walk along the ocean.
Please, respect the apartment as if it was your own precious thing and take care of all the objects inside it and everything will be fine!
Remeber, if you want the cleaner everyday, you will need to leave the keys at the front desk and it is totally safe.
The laundry is at the reception floor and the staff will help you with the machines.
Finally, please do not forget to turn off the AC when you leave the apartment.
Charles is a phenomenal host! He is truly one of Airbnb's best, and we had a wonderful vacation in Rio thanks to his attentiveness, flexibility, and local tips! As well, his home in Ipanema is absolutely magical. We are a couple from New York City, and were blown away by how perfect this place is. It is in a doorman building 2 blocks from Ipanema Beach; need we say more? Thanks again, Charles, for your above and beyond hosting! We will see you again next time we're in Rio.
Charles was not There during check in/ check out. It is a service Apartement - everything went well. Questions via Telephone- quick reply. We asked for a very late check out- no problem! Can strongly recommend the host... very uncomplicated
Perfect location for me and my partner. Easy to arrive to both Ipanema and Copacabana, public transportation, and supermercados. The apartment is exactly like the pics and Charles was great at communicating our arrival.
Would definately stay at his apartment in the future.
Great apartment in great location!! We loved our stay in Rio made even more special from this little gem of an apartment. Located close to both Ipanema & Copacabana beaches - this a safe neighbour hood. I would not hesitate staying here again. The lobby staff are great too and the apartment is clean everyday which is a great bonus.
Charles made us feel most welcome for our week long stay in Ipanema and was there to meet us when we first arrived. Was great that he gave us some tips on where to eat, drink and party. The apartment is in a great location, safe neighbourhood and just a stone’s throw away from both Ipanema and Copacabana beaches. Within a block or two you’ll find supermarkets, banks, restaurants, bars, nightclubs, shopping and pretty much whatever else you need to make your stay enjoyable. The staff in the lobby were very helpful (even if some of them didn’t speak English, the universal pointing gestures, facial expressions and hand signals got us by). They even taught us some Portuguese. Will be back again.
Charles is a very responsive and kind host - we ended up arriving a day later due to flight complications and he was in constant communication with us, being very helpful. His place is exactly as described if not better. Perfect location for a host of activities: from beach going to various bar experiences. The staff at the apartment building are very hospitable as well. Even though we didn't get a chance to meet Charles (our fault as we were out and about too much), he provided us with some great tips. Would definitely choose to stay here if visiting Rio again.

Hi, my name is Charles and I am teacher and researcher of International Politcs in Rio de Janeiro. I m also a big traveler and I always prefer to rent somebody's flat instead of aseptic hotels even when traveling for short periods or for work. I think this choice makes your trip more pleasant. Since traveling is a pleasure for me I think I can be a good host too!
