The apartment was great, as it looks like in the pictures and in a very convenient location. You can walk to the beach or the Lagoa. The building is very secure too. But the best of all was JOSE. He really took care of me since the beginning and went far and beyond to ensure I had a pleasant stay. Among a lot of other things, he found me an affordable gym and a place to rent a wheelchair for my mom. If I have to go back to RIO, I will look for Jose.
Amazing experience to stay here!
Was so impressed with how professional the apartment in run.
Fresh water container, nice beds and ironed linen!
Jose was a perfect and very service minded host.
Really hope to be able to stay here again one day!
Foi com certeza uma das minhas melhores experiências de aluguel por temporada! O Apartamento é ótimo, espaçoso, confortável, a 2 quadras da praia e 3 da lagoa. É perto de tudo (ao lado de um super mercado) e muito bem equipado, com tudo o que é preciso para ter a maior comodidade possível, além de detalhes que fazem a diferença (destaque para roupas de cama e toalhas limpíssimas, além de água geladinha para os hóspedes). TV a cabo, ar-condicionados e wi-fi funcionam perfeitamente. Também fomos muito bem recebidos e orientados pelo anfitrião. Recomendo de olhos fechados e quero voltar!!
Great location in Ipanema a block away from the beach and two blocks from the Metro. it was perfect for me. Jose and Luis were friendly & very helpful. Due to an airline snafu I had to change my check-in and check-out time, and Jose was totally accommodating.
We had a very good time in Jose's apartement. It is in a very good neighbourhood. Close to the beach and to a variety of shops. Enough space for up to 4 people. It is in a very beautiful and safe area in Ipanema.
The flat is also perfectly located to reach other areas quickly by bus or taxi.
Jose is a very kind, open minded and cosmpolitan person. Thank you very much for your hospitality. Emre
Very nice, clean and light apartment in the heart of Ipanema just one block from the beach. Fully equipped, ac and wifi work perfectly, clean towels and sheets; and the location couldn't be more perfect: plenty of restaurants, bars and shops and also transportation.
Jose is a great host, always willing to help and super kind.
I'd highly recommend this apartment, really enjoyed the experience, can't wait to come back!
Jose was great- he even arranged our transport to and from the airport, and was able to let us stay later on our final day, as we had a late flight. The apartment is in an excellent location - it's 5 mins from the amazing beach and to restaurants and bars. The apartment itself was very well equipped and clean and I would definitely recommend it. It's a great price for the standard of accommodation you get! Thank you for your hospitality Jose :-)
Amazing apartment in the best location in Rio.
This apartment is perfect for 2 couples with all the facilitates to cook, clean, wash, relax and use as a base to explore rio.
Jose was a generous and helpful host helping to book taxis and ensure we had a great time.
The location could not be better to access the beach, food, shopping and sites of Rio.
Outstanding location, just two blocks to Ipanema Beach, adjacent to large grocery store, and several restaurants. Apartment is exactly as in pictures. Beds and linens were comfortable. Clean and quiet. Jose was very easy to communicate with, and very helpful.
I went to Rio de Janeiro recently with a friend of mine and stayed at Jose's apartment in Ipanema. Overall, the apartment is charming, generally well-kept and nicely located in the heart of the district. It has two good-sized bedrooms, a fully-equipped kitchen and a bathroom that works mostly well (the hot water heater tends to shut off from time to time, making for some unpleasant surprises in the shower... The trick is to turn off the hot water faucet completely and then back on... You'll hear the heater ignite again). Jose's staff was very accommodating with regards to arrivals and departures and sought to make our stay as pleasant as possible.
There were, however, a few downsides that should be mentioned. The apartment, while generally ok in the cleanliness department, was lacking in certain respects. At least one of the bedrooms had a clear bedbug problem (I woke up with more than a few bites on my arms and legs, although my travel mate seems to have been spared). The kitchen counters and bathroom sink attract quite a few ants, which is never a pleasant experience (be sure to put **all** your food in the fridge, including bread and any condiments such as jams and peanut butter!). Finally, the neighbours are fairly noisy and we'd often hear loud crashes and shouting in the courtyards outside the bedroom windows early in the morning.
A decent stay overall. The price of the apartment is fairly standard for what you'll find in Ipanema. Nevertheless, having rented in the same area in recent years, I know for certain you can find cleaner, more modern and less noisy apartments in Ipanema for around the same price.
An awful experience, would not recommend this to anyone. My advice is to stay as far as possible. It just not worthly the hassle at all. Only if I knew it before I would had saved lots of headaches...
So dirty, the dirtiest Ihad seem until now.
Jose was a great guest! I would recommend this guest to any host. The flat was perfectly nice and in great condition. The guests were easy to deal with. Communication was very smooth. Overall this was a perfect experience. It is always great to deal with guests who have a real respect for the properties they stay in. The property was very much taken care of. I am happy that these guests decided to stay with us!
