Nous avons changé de logement à Rio, c' était prévu et Angelica & Bob nous ont aidait a démènager et nous ont acceuillis dans le nouveau.
Le logement est conforme a l' annonce et le frigidaire avec de l' eau, des jus de fruits et de la bière...
Só tenho elogios ao apartamento e sua localização. Perfeito, próximo a praia, facilidade de acesso a bancos, supermercados e transporte, além de ser espaçoso e confortável.
Agora sobe os proprietários fico até com medo de elogiar de mais, pois foram extremamente educados, atenciosos e simpáticos.
Espero quando voltar ao Rio de Janeiro poder novamente usar um de seus imóveis.
Fantastic apartment in a great location! Very clean, quiet and there were air condition in every room. The location is the best, there are many restaurants around, bus stops, one block from the subway and even a supermarket downstairs. It is 5-10 min walk to Copacabana beach and 5 min walk to Ipanema. The apartment has a security person downstairs 24/7 and Bob and Angelica are excellent hosts! The apartment had more than enough clean bed sheets, towels and everything was as described. The fridge was stocked with water, soft drinks, butter, grapes, orange juices and many beers which was incredibly kind. They'd also left us a bowl of chocolates and explained everything. Excellent value for money and would certainly stay here again. My elderly mother and my family had a great time in Rio and enjoy our stay there. THANK YOU Bob and Angelica!

Very good location in Ipanema, close to the beach, the tube, many bus stops and even a supermarket downstairs. When we arrived, the fridge was filled with soft drinks, beers and fruit juices. Bob was very helpful and gave us a lot of valuable information about Rio. We had a flight at 11.00 PM on our last day and as there was no one after us, he let us stay till early evening in the flat. In a word, good place and great service.
Ipanema was a great location in Rio and Bob and Angelica's apartment was great in terms of location and amenities for our group of travelers. Close to the beach, with any restaurants and bars in walking distance. Bob and Angelica provided very helpful tips for first time travelers to Rio. Couldn't have asked for much more.
Amazing house and location in Ipanema near Copacabana beach! Very safe neighborhood. Only 1 block away from the Metro subway station which made it possible for us to visit many parts of Rio de Janeiro. Bob and Angelica are were very responsive through email. Suggested great locations to dine and visit in Rio de Janeiro! They even provided us with their own list of locations to visit. The apartment looked just like the photos. Conveniently located by a supermarket and many bars and restaurants. Bob & Angelica even gave us water, chocolate and beer when we first arrived!!
First time airbnb user, but very happy with the entire process. I would love another opportunity to go to Rio de Janeiro and stay at this apartment again. Thanks Bob & Angelica!!
