FULL kitchen includes stove w/ oven, refrigerator, microwave, blender, rice cooker, pots/pans, and all utensils.

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!

I travelled to Rio with my boyfriend for New Year's Eve and we stayed in Linda’s apartment for 6 nights. Linda was a really great host. She is a very attentive person and it was easy to reach her as she lives just next to the studio/apartment. Even before getting to Rio, Linda always answer all our emails with great tips and suggestions. Regarding the apartment, it is exactly as shown in the pictures. It is a very small apartment but really clean with all the basic appliances and space to accommodate up to 2 persons. The only thing is that the bathroom doesn’t have a door it just has the shower curtain and as she mentions the shower and toilet are located together. Maybe this could be a little bit uncomfortable for some, but for us it wasn’t any major issue. I think the best thing of the apartment is the location. The apartment is in a really great neighborhood, and just a couple of blocks away from the beach. It is also near to a supermarket, the metro station and there are several buses stop nearby. We really enjoyed our trip to Rio and we would really recommend Linda's place.

Our stay in rio at Linda's apartment was perfect. She made us feel very welcome and took us on a trip around the block so we could get a understanding of the local area. We had an amazing time and want to come back ASAP. Thanks Linda xxx

Fantastic Apartment and Fantastic host. The apartment is less than a minutes walk to Ipanema beach with some great restaurants and bars literally round the corner. Linda provided us with some fantastic tips and advice for the city and was on hand via email whenever we needed her. Fantastic host and great apartment.

This studio was everything I could have hoped for and more! The place is as described and is literally a 1-2 minute walk to the beach. NO JOKE. Absolutely amazing! On top of that it is located very close to the metro station and has many restaurants, bars, shopping nearby. Ipanema is a very safe, clean area in Rio with lots to do and see. I travelled to Brazil for World Cup with my girlfriend (who is now my fiancée) and will never forget the experience. Linda's hospitality certainly added to our wonderful trip. She was very helpful with information about places to visit, buses to catch, places to eat, places to hike, etc. Truly a wonderful person and the consummate host. Should we visit Brazil again in the near future, we would definitely stay with Linda again. Brazil will always hold a special place in our hearts.

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.

I am from Southern California. I look forward to welcoming you to Brazil. I have two great apartments- one in gorgeous Ipanema Beach and the other oceanfront on Cabo Branco Beach, Joao Pessoa. Come for a visit!
