Ipanema is an interesting place to visit, besides the famous beach, there is the lagoon „Lagoa Rodriogo de Feitas“ surrounded by recreation area, bike hire and entertainment kiosks for food, drinks and music, a spectacular landscape with a big biodiversity and great views to Corcovado and part of the Atlantic Rainforest.
The B & B is located almost opposite the lagoon, a few meters from Ipanema beach. The B & B is in an old and small residential and family building of 1938, has no elevator and is located on the 2nd floor with only one staircase.
The B & B features: a large room with good ventilation and 1 double and 1 single beds for 3 people, one complete bathroom for exclusive use by the guests, air conditioning, wardrobe, wi- fi broadband internet, daily cleaning of the room and bathroom. The Brazilian breakfast is served in the eating area.
My building is located about 5 minutes from the Ipanema's trade: Banks, supermarket, drugstores, restaurants, bookstores, metro and bus station. Nightclubs and pubs, theaters, cinemas and art galleries.
We are also about 30 minutes by bus from the Sugar Loaf station and 40 minutes by bus, or 10 min. by metro, from the Corcovado station.
You also can walk about 15 min. to Copacabana or Botanic Garden.
Loves to receive people from all places, ethnicities, preferences
I have a nice street dog that live with me.
Eu moro num predio pequeno e residencial, calmo e tranquilo. É portanto necessário respeitar a lei de silencio a partir das 22:00 horas, não trazer pessoas estranhas, nem fumar no interior
do apartamento. Forneco toalhas de banho e roupa de cama. Não é permitido cozinhar. Não aceito crianças menores de 12 anos.
No reveillon (31 de dezembro) é necessário o pagamento de um mínimo de 5 dias e no carnaval, um mínimo de 7 dias.
The host Malu provided me with a warm welcome, and detail tip of where to go and eat. The two dogs are nice and fun too. The room and living room are just as described, with a good air conditioning and strong wifi at room. The location is within a comfortable walking distance to bars, restaurants, Beach, and even metro stations.
La casa de Malu es muy hermosa. Tal como aparece en las fotos.
Ella y sus perros son un amor. Nos cuidó mucho los días que nos quedamos ahí y nos recomendó cosas para hacer cada día.
Malu is a very nice host. She has a beautiful apartment in a very great location. there are lots of shops and restaurants around. The area is very lively with one of the most beautiful beach very close : Ipanema.
The apartment is clean and cosy. Malu is always willing to give you good tips to enjoy the most of Rio and her breakfasts are very good and healthy ! I definitely recommand her.
A casa da Malu era tudo que minha irmã e eu (website hidden) localização perfeita entre a Lagoa e a praia. Sua casa é linda e limpa. Ela foi muito prestativa conosco, quando a minha irmã disse que manga era sua fruta favorita, Malu fez uma vitamina deliciosa com a fruta para o café da manhã seguinte e sua atenção aos detalhes não acabou aí, ela sempre deixava o ar condicionado de nosso quarto ligado para nosso conforto quando voltávamos da praia. Foi um final de semana maravilhoso!!!
Era sempre um prazer conversar com Malu e escutar suas dicas preciosas sobre a cidade. Vou sentir saudade da sua leveza, a típica carioca com alma de artista.
Recomendo de olhos fechados sua casa, pois tivemos uma ótima experiência!!!
Malu’s home was everything we had hoped. Perfectly located between the lagoon and the beach. Her home is beautiful and clean. She was always very helpful with us, when my sister said that mango was her favorite fruit, Malu made a delicious smoothie with mango for breakfast the next morning and here attention to details did not end there, she always left the air conditioning in our room on to our comfort when we returned from the beach. It was a wonderful weekend!!!
It was always a pleasure to talk to Malu and listen to your precious tips about the city. I will miss her, the typical carioca with an artist soul.
I highly recommend her place because we had a great experience!!!
Malu's place is in a lovely (and super safe) part of Ipanema between the Lagoa and the beach (posto 9)--and a short walk to the subway. The room was comfortable and bright (though there were blackout curtains too), and the dogs so sweet and well-behaved. Malu was a very thoughtful host and shared her favorite places with me in that special way that is infinitely superior to any guidebook.
The only negative was that the a/c broke down my first night and the repairman couldn't come fix it before I left, so the heat and mosquitos weren't awesome, though the room has a good ceiling fan and another standing fan if you need it. (Malu also offered me her bedroom with its working a/c.)
We are so lucky to have stayed with Malu in Rio. My mom and I stayed with her for 4 days and couldn't imagine having done it any other way. Malu was a stellar host, who really went above and beyond so we had the best vacation in Rio. From the beginning she was very quick to respond to my messages and answer all my questions. She was super accommodating to wait for us in the apartment when we arrived, and from that moment we felt like we were staying at a family friends house. She made excellent (and I really mean excellent) breakfasts every morning with fresh juices (each day a new fabulous Brasilian fruit) and hand-picked Brasilian products, including my beloved pao de queijo (fresh, hot and goey) and queijo de minas. She deftly accommodated my mother's dietary needs and made sure she always had something she could eat.
Malu also has the BEST recommendations, I recommend following them, because as a true Carioca she knows the city inside and out. With Malus guidance we had amazing meals and were able to hit all the must-see tourist spots without waiting in line.
The location of the apartment was perfect. In beautiful ipanema, close to the subway and meters from lagoa. As a runner I loved being close to the running trail around the lagoa, it's a perfect 8km loop to do.
The apartment is lovingly decorated and very comfortable. We felt very at home and we wished we could stay longer. We definitely would love to return and stay with Malu and wholeheartedly recommend it to anyone else. Thanks Malu for everything!
Staying with Malu is a great experience especially if you have never been to Rio. She very graciously points out places to go and helps make sure you are getting to where you need to go. Her location is excellent, close to the beach, Lagoa and lots of commerce. The room is very comfortable and spacious with a good bed. Her homemade breakfasts are very good, too. If you like dogs, you must stay with her because her dogs are great pets! I recommend staying with Malu for a very good Rio experience.
