ENJOY YOUR STAY !!!
I had an amazing experience staying at Johnny's Rio apartment!! I shared the space with 4 of my girlfriends and it still was very spacious. Very true to this ad, the apartment was immaculately decorated! Eliana, the housekeeper, was very warm and welcoming and made us feel like her long lost Brazilian family. She met us downstairs and was always a phone call away to answer any of our questions. She gave us suggestions on places to go in Rio and even took us to a local Brazilian eatery (which was amazing!!). The location is PERFECT, as it is situated a block from Copacabana and two blocks from Ipanema. (You can look left out of the front of the apartment and see the beach!) There are several restaurants around and a grocery store (Zona Sul) immediately across the street. I could not have asked for more in a host. We will definitely be back to Rio and we will most definitely want to stay here again!! Easy booking. Very responsive to emails. Answered ALL of our questions in a timely manner. A+!!
We absolutely loved Johnny's apartment in Rio. The apartment is stunningly decorated with very comfortably bedding and living spaces. Very secure building in a great neighborhood in a perfect location. Less than 2 blocks from Copacabana Beach and a 10 minute walk from Ipanema. Johnny's communication was great throughout. The apartment caretaker is one of the nicest people you will ever meet, and helped make our stay in Rio that much better. Can't wait to make a return trip!
Eliana was a wonderful hostess and attended to all our needs. The area is safe and secure. However the unit needs some updating and the photos actually represent the unit as more glamorous than it actually is. Some updating is in order, especially on the outside deck where the jacussi does not work. The area is very congested and noisy. Our next trip will be to ipamena only a short distance away, with fabulous restaurants and close proximity to a great, less congested beach.
Just a huge Thank you to Johnny.
He is a Great Host, Such a comfortable house, in few words, one of the best experience I have had!
First of all, thank you eliana and Johnny for making our stay as wonderful as possible! The Appartement is stunning and Eliana helped us with everything: she Showed us the place and gave us tips for Rio!
We Hope to come back One day and will definitely stay at the place of possible.
Thank you, Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
L'appartement est très bien placé entre copacabana et ipanema (ce qui laisse le choix pour aller a la plage). Il est également bien équipé et Elianna vous recevra avec une gentillesse hors normes. Johnny est très attentif à votre bien être et à la réussite de votre séjour.
Un séjour inoubliable et un retour bien difficile à Paris dans le froid.
Everything was perfect. Appartment was very clean and Johnny was a great host.
