The Space

Cute Mini-Studio only a 2-minute walk to Ipanema Beach! [See our photo with map for spot-on location- AirBNB map is not correct.] This is THE BEST Ipanema location. Popular option for savvy travelers. Across the street and around the corner are great bars & restaurants, outdoor cafes, live music, metro/subway, great shopping, and 24-hr. grocery store!

Upgraded, bright, and very clean studio apartment. Everything you need for a terrific vacation in this small but fully loaded Ipanema Studio. Upscale neighborhood- VERY safe location.

WIRELESS high speed internet, comfy pillow-top high quality mattress on double bed, air conditioning/heating (silent split unit), and top-quality bed linens/towels. FULL kitchen includes stove w/ oven, refrigerator, microwave, blender, rice cooker, pots/pans, and all utensils. Bathroom is 'wet-bath' style meaning shower and toilet are located together in same efficient space behind a shower curtain. The studio faces the back of building, no view but lots of light from the 2 windows. Secure & gated 'boutique' building with 24-hour doorman & two elevators. Price includes electricity (very unusual as most rentals charge extra).
ASK about our FREE safe & secure garage parking on the property, too!

Perfect for one or two people, maximum. The apartment is small, approx. 180sf, so please review pictures carefully to see if this apt is for you. :)

Location- Prudente de Morais St. AT Gomes Carneiro St.- just across the street from General Osorio Park and the famous Hippie Fair (Sundays) and Fruit/vegetable outdoor market (Tuesdays). IMAGINE walking out your door and within ONE block is the BEACH, 24-hour supermarket, subway/metro station, post office, shopping, major bus routes throughout the city, & popular restaurants & bars including Banana Jack's (live music), Shenanian's (live music), Churrascaria Carretao, Devassa , Fazendola, Frontera Grill, Studio RJ (new nightclub) and Felice Cafe. Within TWO blocks is Farme de Amoedo St. and other great restaurants, bars & clubs-- AND the famous Fasano Hotel & Bar (5 star)- where Madonna, Lady Gaga, Beyonce, Matthew McConaughey, Cold Play and other 'rich & famous' stay and play! And within THREE blocks are more fine bars/restaurants, the best live Bossa Nova Club in Rio, and the famous restaurant where the song, 'The Girl from Ipanema', was written! And just a 10 minute walk away puts you on the beach in Copacabana (but remember, Ipanema Beach is in your backyard). This is a VERY SAFE neighborhood with popular upscale restaurants, bars, etc just steps from the Studio- people walking in area into wee hours. This IS a wonderful location to enjoy Ipanema, & all of Rio too!

Great option for Ipanema- why pay hotel prices OR high apartment agency prices? Rent directly from the owner- who takes pride in this apartment. Ask about parking in our secure underground parking garage. Private transportation with English- speaking driver to/from airport available for low-cost fee.

California/American owner lives next door and can provide tips, directions, recommendations, and assistance in ENGLISH, Portuguese & a bit of Spanish, too.

  • What an absolute pleasure it was staying at the studio. The place is everything as describe + more. Located within heart of 'happening' Rio, you are virtually in amongst the vibrancy. The best thing is that the studio is at the back of the block, therefore it's virtually sound blocked. Linda's 'down to earth' approach is an added bonus. Linda puts herself in the shoes of the resident... everything's planned out from the word go with essentials, a quick tour of the immediate area and on call at your needs (she even went to the pharmacy for me when I got I'll!) Highly recommended 5 star rating.

  • This is a fantastic apartment. The location is superb. Close to all the main attractions of Ipanema with Copacabana around the corner. The beach is a 5 minute walk away. The big supermarket is across the road.

    The apartment itself is perfect. It has all the facilities you need. Whilst it is quite compact, it is all you need to enjoy your stay in Rio. The bed is very comfortable. The A/C helps you get through the hot weather and the kitchen is well equipped.

    Linda as a fantastic host. She made us feel at home and provided comprehensive info on Rio and the main attractions. During our stay she constantly updated us on what was happening in the city. She was extremely flexible with check in and check out times and made our stay so easy and convenient.

  • The apartment is just perfect for a couple or a single person to spend a great time in Rio. The beach is really around the corner, and it´s actually the best beach of the town as much as I heard and have experienced myself. The apartment is very tastfully furnished and has everything you need in a very space effective manner. Everything else will be found in the neighbourhood (i.e. Laundry). Generally Ipanema is a very cool spot with lots of great cafés, bars, shops and restaurants. A 24h-supermarket next door makes things way easier. And Linda is a host as one can only wish. Everything was 100% tidy, a list with dozends of recommendations welcomes you and she is always available when you need her.
    All in all I can only recommend this nice little treasurebox to everybody, who wants so spend a chilled time in Rio.

  • I had an amazing stay in Rio, mainly due to the excellent location of the room. The building is safe, and clean and well staffed. I was well taken care of by sylvia, who met me with keys and a smile. The only small drawbacks would be that there is a small window that faces a courtyard that cant be closed. No street noise, but neighbors having a bad day cant be shut out. But for me, this was the perfect efficiency, and I had everything I needed! For 2 people, not having a door on the shower/toliet may raise privacy issues. Yet, I would recommend this space, linda was more than wonderful about communicating and keeping me informed. And as I said the location is unbeatable. With a grocery and the amazing beaches right outside the door. I would stay here again!! For sure!!!

  • A friend and mine had a terrific time of some 10 days in Rio de Janeiro.
    While the weather could have been better, Linda´s appartment was the perfect place to be. If we choose to visit Rio again, we will certainly look for Linda´s place again. Linda herself is an absolutely charming and warm host. Communication during the booking process as well as during the stay in Rio could not have been better.
