Please do not put a reservation without contacting me before. It won't be accepted. Just for your info, here in brazil, during New Year's eve and Carnival, apartments are rented on fixed packages (pacotes). The packages are of 7 days (6 nights) at a fixed price, so if you stay 3 days, 5 days, or 7 it will be the same price. After you contact me and we agree on a period and price, I would have to send you a special offer with the agreed price and days for you to accept.

Depends. If your one day reservation fall in the middle of 5 days, I won't accept. It will be impossible for me to rent the 2 days before or after it. If your one day reservation fall right before or after an existing reservation, and will not affect the chance to rent the remaining days, I might accept. Please so not put a one day reservation before contacting me to enquire for it.

Depends: If I do not have a guest checking out that day, we can arrange check in at your convenience. If I do have a guest checking out that day there is the possibility for you to get the keys at 12:00, change your clothes if you need, and leave your luggages in the apt in between 12:00 and 15:00 while the cleaning lady cleans the apt. In this way you can already cruise around ipanema and come back at your convenience. Usually this is confirmed before the arrival.

It is just for you. No one else will access the apt during your stay.
ARE TOWELS AND BED SHEETS PROVIDED?
Yes, I provide two sets of bath and shower towels, bed sheets and pillows. I do not provide beach towels: however, you can buy very inexpensive and cool “cangas" directly on the beach.
I WANT TO BOOK THE ROOM FOR ONE PERSON BUT I WANT BE ABLE TO HAVE GUESTS, IS THAT OK?
This is usually fine. The apt is for two people, so if you want to have an extra guest, there is no problem and there is no extra cost.
HOW CAN I GET TO THE APT FROM THE AIRPORT?
The best way from the airport to ipanema is by taxi. In Rio taxi is not expensive, and if you take other means can take up to 3 hours. If you arrive at GIG usually it takes one hour in between getting luggages, immigration and taxi. If you arrive at SDU is usually 40 minutes. Therefore, based on the time of arrival you will communicate to me, I will be waiting for you at the apt either 1 hour or 40 min later. But we will confirm via e-mail couple of days before arrival.
HOW CAN I GET TO THE APT FROM THE MAIN COACH STATION:
Buses arrives at Estação Novo Rio in the Gamboa area of Rio near downtown. From there you will need to take a taxi. Depending on the time of arrival it can take from 40 minutes up to 2 hours.
