El anfitrión se comportó excelente, respondió mis consultas antes de llegar cada vez que se las hice. Cuando llegamos nos estaban esperando, el apartamento era tal cual las fotos, tiene todas las comodidades necesarias y estaba muy limpio. El barrio en que se encuentra es seguro, tranquilo y silencioso, lo cual permite descansar tranquilamente dentro del bullicio de Río. A dos cuadras hay estación de metro y parada de bus.
O Frenk foi um excelente anfitrião e me recebeu no horário combinado previamente. Me deixou o whatsapp à disposição e nos comunicamos algumas vezes durante a minha estadia (ele estava sempre disponível). Acabei não ficando no apartamento reservado, mas ele prontamente me ofereceu outro apartamento no mesmo prédio que atendeu às minhas necessidades. O apartamento é bem pequeno, mas era exatamente o que eu precisava. A região é excelente!
Frenk was charming and met us at the apartment on the first day, although we were quite delayed by traffic. We had to ask for towels twice due to a problem with the cleaner, so we did not have enough towels the first 48 hs. I would say the apartment is beautiful and has an outstanding view BUT is not really suitable for people with mobility problems and/or lots of luggage! You must climb a very steep corkscrew staircase to get to the living space and another to the beautiful terrace. The terrace was definitely the highlight, but to my eyes, the railing was unsafe on the side and there is 14 stories drop. The railing were actually yielding so we didn't go near them. I wouldn't recommend children or teens near it. The apartment was very central and perfect for a few days. I would have liked a better equipped kitchen, in the past, wherever I have stayed there has been sugar, salt, tea, basics, here there was just a bottle of water and no can opener so we had to use a knife. The idea of a jacuzzi is great, but it's not heated and there's no shade at all in the terrace so therefore we didn't use it. At night the wind makes it quite chilly because of the height of the terrace and during the day the beach is two blocks away! All in all, it was a good place to stay;
We stayed in Frenk's lovely ipanema penthouse for 5 days and it was fantastic. We couldn't have asked for anything more. The view was breathtaking and the apartment itself was brilliant. Location was 10/10, restaurants, shops and beach on your doorstep. Frenk himself was more than helpful and always on the other end of the phone for whatever we needed. We would 100% stay here again. Thank you Frenk for making our stay so enjoyable.
We stayed in this amazing apartment for 1 week in april. We loved it!!! Near the beach (only 2 small blocks away from Ipanema). The apartment is perfect for two people. What we enjoyed the most was the big terrace in the room and living area (with an ocean view) and the the amazing rooftop (with views all around the city and beach aswell). The apartment was as we expected. The location is priceless, there are shops and restaurants everywhere. Even though the apartment is centrally located in ipanema, it's very quiet since it's in the 14th floor. We used Frenk's transfer service from the airport and we recommend it to future guests : nice sedan with friendly driver. The check in was fast with Rosa who was our contact during the trip. We will definetly be back on our next trip to Rio.
Muito obrigado Frenk and Rosa Maria!!!!
I had a great stay in this apartment and working with Frenk as my host. The apartment was exactly as listed and the neighborhood is a safe and beautiful place to stay in. Frenk is highly professional and was very helpful for my entire stay. I would definitely stay in this apartment (specifically) again. Frenk has other listings, too, although I am unfamiliar with them, based on my experience with him, I would definitely be trusting in experiencing those as well. This was my first AirBnB experience and I would give him an A+. THANKS!
Alles bestens, jederzeit wieder. Traumhafter Blick vom Balkon. Sehr hilfsbereiter Eigentümer und Angestellte. Absolut seriös und sehr empfehlenswert.
Minha estadia no Rio foi incrivel. Tivemos um imprevisto com o apartamento e precisamos mudar para outro, mas a equipe do Frenk foi excelente e rapidamente nos acomodou em um apartamento com as mesmas caracteristicas e muito confortavel. Sem contar que todos foram muito amaveis e nos ajudaram em tudo. Uma das melhores experiencias que tivemos. Altamente recomendavel, principalmente porque eh uma equipe preparada ate para resolver imprevistos. Adorei e quero voltar, com certeza.
Our accommodation was just across the road from Ipenema beach and ideally situated to the local supermarket (next door). Transport was via a taxi when we wanted to go further afield but otherwise we felt safe enough when walking around. We even ventured to walk to Copacabana for the night markets on the beach (approx 15 minutes). We did however catch a taxi home afterwards. The accommodation had three bedrooms which enabled my family to have separate rooms where necessary with one double bed being split into two singles in one room for our two boys. The lounge/dining/balcony area had a great view to the beach. The pool was a shared one with other tenants and there was a life guard on duty during the day. Unfortunately when he was not available the pool gate was locked so we could not use it in the evenings when we returned home from sightseeing. 24 hour security for the complex was very good and the sixth floor apartment gave us a wide view of the surrounding area. Thank you for the use of the apartment. We would consider coming again if we return to Rio in the future. Rosa was very helpful during both the checkin and at the end of our stay.
Great apartment - would recommend it to anybody!
Looks exactly as shown in the pictures, with all the necessary amenities.
Spacious and at the best possible location - minutes away from the beach. The area is rich with supermarkets, banks, bakeries, restaurants, cafes - you can find anything you need.
During the Carnival there's a parade passing down the street everyday - you can observe it from the window or just join in the street samba madness!
The booking process and the whole communication with Frank was easy and seamless. We were greeted and shown the apartment, and it was possible to arrange the check-out at our own convenience.
