There is a STRIKT NO SMOKING policy in the apartment (you can smoke on the terraces) and there are no pets allowed.
T-shirt obligatory in lobby and elevator, no wet and/or swim cloths, sandy shoes/feet in lobby or elevator.
To maintain sanitary conditions it is suggested that you do not use street shoes in the apartment. This is a beach community and sand travels everywhere. There is ample space for street shoes at the entrance and clean Hawaianas or slippers are the preferred shoes in the apartment. The apartment has 2 bedrooms and sleeps 4. The apartment is fine for 2 couples with no overnight visitors or 2 singles with potential overnight visitors. The high "additional guest" rate is based on that policy because I DO NOT WANT more than 4 overnight guests in the apartment. No sleeping on the sofa, the beds are for sleeping.
There is an electricity shortage in Brazil. The local electricity company is running TV spots that say: "Use it (electricity) but don't abuse it!" The message of this is that if all are using electricity efficiently there will be enough for all.
Guests agree to turn off the air condition, lights, and TV when not in the apartment and to close all doors and windows when using the air condition units. Please participate in conserving energy!
As long as those rules are respected everything will be fine!
Stefan was the perfect host! He was there to meet me despite a very early arrival time and was always quick to respond to any questions.
The location was exactly what we were looking for as well - between Copacabana and Ipanema and on the same street as the metro station.
We had a great time at Stefan's apartment! The place was exactly as listed, a lovely bright, clean & comfy apartment with two lovely terraces, plenty of space for the three of us. The location is perfect, a short walk to both Copacabana & Ipanema beaches with plenty of shops, restaurants, cafes, banks etc right on the doorstep, & with easy access to other parts of the city. We walked back to the apartment late at night & felt perfectly safe in the area. As the apartment has a fingerprint-lock there's no worrying about losing keys which was great! Finding the apartment building was easy, & Stefan met us there to give us all the info we needed plus some local tips. Stefan kindly helped us with our luggage, & had even left juice, water & coffee for our arrival which was much appreciated! Great host! I'd highly recommend this apartment - thanks for everything Stefan, we can't wait to return!
Great moments at Stefan's place. The location is very handy, right in between Copacabana and Ipanema as well as the flat who is very comfy and handy. Stefan has been a great host and organised everything perfectly for our arrival. We will definitely consider coming back to him when we get back to rio.
Stefan made us feel very welcome in his lovely 2 bedroom apartment in Rio. He was good at communicating from the start, and made us feel welcome when we arrived. He provided water and juice in fridge on arrival. He also provided washing machine liquid and fabric conditioner.
The apartment is well located, within easy reach of both Copacabana and Ipanema beaches, the former being about 3 blocks away. There are also local supermarkets nearby and an underground station. The taxi drivers know where the road is, and the Hotel Miramar is a short walk away for those who need picking up by a tour bus etc.
The apartment was clean with excellent facilities - aircon throughout, wifi, iron, ironing board, hair dryer, washing machine and dryer, cable TV. There was also ample room for clothes in the wardrobes in both bedrooms. The security was good, with codes and fingerprint entry. There was a safety deposit box in the apartment too.
We had an excellent stay and would recommend this apartment to our friends and family.
Amazing host, amazing place. This is your best option for location, host knowledge, and obviously the amazing apartment in the Copa/Ipanema neigborhood. Terrace is a big highlight, along with the bedrooms (and another attached terrace!). Highly recommended.
This is a great place in a fantastic location. The host, Stefan, added to the experience with his hospitality, picking us up from the airport, showing us the local amenities, and even helping us obtain tickets for the sambodrome before leaving us alone to enjoy one of the greatest events on the planet - carnival in Rio!
There is a rooftop terrace with a plunge pool and outside shower. The security for the place is excellent and includes fingerprint entry and a safe. It's 5 minute walk to Copacobana beach, and about 15 to Ipanema.
Just book it, you won't be disappointed! Thanks Stefan for your amazing hospitality.
Stefan provided excellent instructions to reach the apartment and was there to meet both of us, even though we arrived separately. He provided a very thorough explanation of the facilities and was happy to answer any questions. He also helped with our luggage both at checkin and checkout and was very welcoming throughout our time in Rio.
