  • Our first experience with Airbnb was very good.
    The apartment is perfect for a couple and is exactly like in the pictures. The location is wonderful: in a safe neighborhood and near the beach, shops and restaurants.
    The communication with Anja was very easy, she answered all my messages promptly.
    Would definitely stay there again. Hopefully soon. :)

  • Our stay in Rio was excellent partly due to this lovely apartment and Anja’s gracious hospitality. This was our first time using AirBnB and we were so happy with the results. The apartment was even better than what we expected. It is a beautiful, quaint, and clean apartment ideally located close the beach, great restaurants/bars and shopping. I wish I lived here. Prior to arriving, we emailed with Anja quite a bit about the place and things to do in Rio. She obviously loves to make sure her guests are taken care of as she provided us with such great ideas, and helped us organize a few tours; so do not hesitate to ask her. When we arrived, Anja met us at the apartment and we ended up talking for over a half hour or so about seemingly everything. She is so pleasant and thoughtful and easy to talk to! (sorry Vince, we didn’t meet you, but can only imagine you to be a pleasant as Anja).

    We highly recommend this place to anyone interested in visiting Rio. We will certainly be back.

  • Best location in Rio!! My travel buddy and I liked it so much we stayed twice on the same trip! Anja and Vince are great and very accommodating. Highly recommend to anyone heading to the area. The food in this neighborhood is fantastic and you won't be disappointed!

    Response from Vince + Anja:

    Thanks Rob and Jimmy!! Hope to see you again soon ;)

  • Awesome apartment! Great location in Leblon, close to the beach and all other amenities; buses, restaurants, cafes, etc. Walk from the apartment along Leblon beach to Ipanaema and carry on to Arapador, if you're keen cut through the shops to Copa! The apartment has everything you need.

    Anja & Vince were fantastic; we unfortunately arrived a day late due to weather at our departure, they were very accommodating of this change of plan. On our departure Anja organized our safe pick-up and delivery to the airport via a taxi service.

    All in all, a great experience all round.

  • The apartment was great! It's located in the best part of Rio right above two fantastic restaurants and a few steps to the beach, shopping and nightlife. We enjoyed it so much we are coming back next week!! Thank you Anja and Vince!

  • Super bem localizado, o apartamento é perfeito para 2 (website hidden) condicionado na sala e no quarto super bons, internet rápida, cozinha básica. O banheiro é um pouco pequeno e antigo, mas sem problemas, é fiel às fotos. Super recomendo.
    Anja foi uma anfitriã bem disponível, sempre atenta quanto aos meus questionamentos iniciais, estava nos esperando no apto. no dia que chegamos, tudo certo. O Edifício é bem seguro, com portaria, elevador e o bairro super seguro também. Muitos restaurantes legais e os clássicos do leblon a poucos passos - mas o apartamento é bem silencioso e pertíssimo da praia e de um ponto de Bike Rio.

    Lovely apartment. Great Location, very close to the beach. The building is very secure and the neighborhood too. The hostess was very friendly.
    I recommend. Enjoy Rio.

    Obrigada Lisiane! Seja sempre bem vinda! Abraços! Anja

  • We have been in Anja&Vincent apartment for four nights.
    The apartment besides being delicious is renovated, very quiet and located in a trendy area with good restaurants and bar, close to the beach and to airport bus stop.
    Anja has been waiting for our arrival showing the lovely apartment and doing everything to solve our problem with a luggage damaged by the TAM company.
    Also gave us several tips to better enjoy the city and during our stay was always present for advice, contacts and more.
    Thanks Anja, we think we'll be back!

    Thank you Laura and Guido! You are welcome to come back anytime! :) Take care! Anja

  • The apartment was perfect for me and my wife. The location is impeccable, the building is secure and the neighborhood too - full of good restaurants, bars and just really, really, close to the beach

    Our hostess, Anja, was perfect in every way. We met at the scheduled time at the apartment, everything was explained, the place was clean and well maintained and there was nothing missing.

    She remained worried about whether everything was in order during our stay at the carnival and when we needed to speak to her, we had no problems during the period.

    Definitely the place to stay if you want to enjoy Rio in all the carioca style of being.

    We'll be back for sure, we already have another period booked with them! Highly recommended!

    Thanks so much David! Glad you liked the apartment and enjoyed Carnaval in Rio to the fullest! :) Looking forward to see you both again in June!

  • Anja and Vince's apartment is the perfect place for your trip to Rio de Janeiro. Communication was great despite the fact that my cell phone had issues with the Brazilian network and I couldn't send or receive SMS messages, we corresponded by email - often multiple times per day. Upon arrival we found the apartment exactly as shown in the pictures with Brazilian sweets on the pillows. Anja talked to us for a while to find out about us and our interests and sent an email later with personalized suggestions. The apartment is perfect for a couple or up to 4 people and the neighborhood is great: upscale and safe with tons of restaurants and bars. It's also very well located for traveling to all the various points of interest in the city: Copacabana, Ipanema and Leblon beaches, Cristo Redentor, Pao de Açucar, etc. Anja and Vince even invited us to come along with them on Saturday to a waterfall in Tijuca. I would definitely stay again.
