Daniel and Raquel made us feel so welcome for our stay in Rio during Carnaval 2015. The apartment was in a perfect area to easily walk to the Ipanema or Copacabana beaches and the metro (General Osorio station), however it was far enough away from the chaos of Carnaval that it was still quiet and we felt very safe. The accommodations were perfect for our small group. Daniel and Raquel did everything they could to make us feel at home: from answering all of my questions before arriving, to providing tour books and electrical outlet adapters to use during our stay. Their tour guide on airbnb was also really helpful - we visited several of their recommended spots during our stay. Their apartment is in a quiet and safe area at the end of a residential street; there were several guards in the area during Carnaval nights, making us feel even safer. There are many good bars, restaurants, shops, and small grocery stores within walking distance. We would often stop at a small bakery/grocery on our way home to buy water and breakfast for the next morning. There's also a kiosk on the corner, but that was closed during Carnaval.
We highly recommend Daniel and Raquel's place to anyone interested in staying in Ipanema during their stay in Rio. A great location and terrific hosts. Thanks, R&D!
Raquel and Daniels place was great. The neighbourhood is really safe and quiet as well. I met with Daniel when we arrived. We were a day late and this was no problem. There was fruit and juice in the fridge which was a nice touch. It's a short walk to the beach as well and there is heaps of restaurants in walking distance as well. Thanks again guys for letting us stay in your place.
My roommate and I stayed 12 days in Rio for the World Cup. We were seeking a safe and fun place to stay. Raquel and Daniel's home far exceeded our expectations. They were amazing hosts and made us feel very comfortable. They answered all questions we had about tourist sites, restaurants, and nightlife. They also gave us great suggestions of places that turned out to be one of our favorite Rio experiences. They would check in with us to make sure everything was okay and we had everything we needed in our room. The room itself was very comfortable, clean, with a spacious bed, TV system with cable and lots of DVDs if you want to take a break and have a more relaxed day. The whole apartment was very clean and pleasant. They do also have a big dog that may seem intimidating at first because of his size and energy but he is the sweetest dog. We immediately fell in love with him and was never a problem. On the contrary, it was nice to sometimes be greeted by our little friend when getting to the apartment! The location of the apartment itself is also fantastic as it is 2 blocks from Ipanema beach. It is right in the middle of great restaurants and incredibly safe. We were two women traveling alone and felt safest in that neighborhood. It is also a few blocks from the Metro, which made it very easy to travel to other parts of Rio. Overall our trip was great and our hosts/room definitely contributed to the wonderful experience!
Raquel and Daniel were both really good hosts. The location of the flat is perfect as both ipanema beach and Lagoa lake are less than 5 minutes walk away.
My only issue was the large excitable dog, which wasn't quite what we were expecting.
Pase muy buenos momentos en Rio disfrutando de la hospitalidad de Raquel y Daniel.
Fueron muy buenos anfitriones y siempre se mostraron preocupados de hacerme sentir grato en esa linda ciudad.
Departamento muy bien ubicado en Ipanema a sólo 5 cuadras de la playa.
La bicicleta de Daniel me sirvió para conocer mejor la ciudad.
Barrio tranquilo y cercano a restaurantes.
Gracias a ambos.
Daniel and Raquel were very hospitable and helpful during our stay in Rio de Janeiro. They helped addressed all of our needs when it came to their apartment and getting around Rio (during Carnaval). They're place is a bit small but certainly functional for 1 or 2 people who are looking to stay in the city for just a few days. Excellent location when it comes to the beaches of Ipanema, Copacabana, and Leblon. They are a very nice couple so I would recommend staying with them if you want a local's perspective to Rio.
We had a lovely stay at Daniel and Raquel's apartment over the New Year 2013 period,. The apartment was very well located in Ipanema, five minutes walk from Ipanema Beach. We walked to Copacabana Beach (20-25 minutes walk) for the New Years fireworks and celebrations which was incredible. 2 million people dressed in white having a fantastic time, really good fun :)
Was easy to walk back afterwards, which was ideal as taxi's are always hard to find on New Years wherever you are.
The street on which Daniel and Raquel's apartment is situated felt very safe as did the apartment building, even coming back late at night. Within minutes you have an excellent selection of restaurants and bars. The sushi restaurant, Yusuki, is definitely worth trying. We ate at 3 or 4 other restaurants which were all good, although I would not recommend the Tex/Mex restaurant particularly. There is also a grocery store 3 minutes away.
The apartment itself was very clean and tidy and our hosts could not have been more friendly and pleasant. They went out of their way to make our stay comfortable.
Would definitely recommend Daniel and Raquel's apartment, perfect location and great hosts!

Hi Kate and Loc, thank you very much for your comment! It meant a lot! Thanks! We wish you all the best! Happy 2014! R&D
A perfect place to spend good time in Ipanema.
Daniel is helpfull and discret in the same time.
The building is perfectly located, close to ipanema ( 10 min by walk to post 9) and in a secured area.
Don't hesitate, just GO ! GO ! GO !
Raquel & Daniel ont été très accueillants.
Mon ami et moi sommes arrivés tard chez Raquel & Daniel tard (21h45) et Daniel nous a attendus bien qu'il était un retard pour un rendez-vous.
Nous sommes restés 4 nuits et nous nous sommes sentis comme chez nous dans notre chambre indépendante.
L'appartement est très bien placé : 5 min du métro, 5 min de la plage, nombreux restaurants dans le quartier. Pour nous Ipanema est le meilleur quartier de Rio : animé, sur et facile d'accès.
Nous recommandons vivement !
Raquel & Daniel's building is located in the somewhat shady edge of Ipanema but still on a walking distance from praia de Ipanema (around 10 mn).
Communication with Daniel was clear and straightforward.
The apartment is on the 5th floor with elevator and is facing a rock wall that can reflect some noise especially during the night.
The cleanliness was not impeccable but upon request, Daniel provided us an extra sheet.
There are some breakfast options in the neigbourhood.
Raquel and Daniel stayed with my family for 4 nights and we had some opportunieties to talked happily, they are a nice couple, easy going, friendly, easy to communicate,... highly recommend to everybody to host them. Looking forward to seeing them in the near feature.
This is our second couple from Brazil.
They are polite and quiet at beginning. After that they happy and enjoy our place, city and surroundings.They were clean I wish to see them again .
Nice and friendly guests ! Recommended !
