We felt like we were in our own apartment.
Everything that we could think of was available. It really is a complete home. In fact, we felt like we were at mom's flat.
The flat has very well maintained beds, linens, towels, showers, furniture, excellent air conditioning, fully functional kitchen and laundry (nobody needs a drying machine in Rio's warm weather).
The building service team is very friendly and helpful about directions.
Mentioning directions. Brigitte left a folder full of maps and prospects about Rio, its attractions and transportation hints.
The location could not be better. Very very close to Copacabana, Ipanema and Lagoa. A region full of stores, supermarkets, drugstores, we could not feel more comfortable. In fact, we parked the car at the building when we arrived and only took it from the parking lot to follow our journey.
Maybe we should say something bad to make sure the apartment will be available for us in the future, but we couldn't find any disadvantages, specially due it's cost-benefit relation.
What can I say about someone that leaves all the goods for our first breakfast? Nothing less than a dear hostess. I recommend this place to all, who want to have the perfect stay in Rio.
Alexandre, thank you for your excellent review. I'm glad that everything worked out, even without my presence. I'd love to welcome you again.
El dpto espectacular buena ubicación y cómodo
Durante nuestra instancia lo pasamos bien y los conserjes atentos
Thank you for renting your nice apartment to me for 22-29th June, 2014.
Location of your apartment was great, only few hundred meters to the metro station and beautiful (and most well known) beaches of the world, Ipanema & Copacabana.
Your apartment was nice, safe, clean and all what we needed was in there, even some basic things to prepare our first breakfast when arrived early on first morning. All shopping facilities, many nice restaurants and other services were in walking distance.
You were good in pre-travel communication and it was nice to have Rio material available when arrived. Everything was exactly as you described in beforehand.
Thank you so much and I wish you all the best:
Thank you very much Petteri. I am glad you enjoyed your stay.
We had a great stay at Brigitte's place in Arpoador. We were visiting during the early part of the World Cup. The location was great. It was 2 minutes walk from a small neighborhood Zona Sul (chain of supermarkets), 5 minutes walk from the south/west end of Copacabana beach, 5 minutes walk from the eastern end of Ipanema beach, and 10 minutes walk from the General Osorio / Ipanema metro and a larger Zona Sul.
The amenities were as described and the apartment was clean and spacious. I'd say that 2-3 single people or a family of 4 can stay there comfortably, the only limitation being having to share 1 shower, though there is a separate small half bathroom with just a toilet and a sink. The building was also very clean, and very quiet (definitely not a place for partying, and that's a good thing in my book). The condo had windows to an interior courtyard so we didn't have to deal with any street noise, though the building is on a relatively quieter street. It's also next to a small hotel, so you can easily find a cab or book tours (we booked a full day tour through the hotel). Brigitte can also put you in touch with a local cab driver that's usually stationed there and is very trustworthy. We used him 3 times ourselves.
All my communication with Brigitte was through email, since she went out of town for the cup (I don't blame her), so unfortunately I didn't get to meet her. But I kept sending her many emails before the trip with questions about planning my trip (it was my first time in Brazil), and she always found the information I needed; she also provided us with a lot of relevant information that she knew was going to be useful to us during our visit.
I would stay at her place again with no concerns, and I would definitely recommend her and her condo to anyone.
Stephanos, thank you for your excellent review.
It pleases me honestly that despite my absence everything so well
worked. Thanks to our mutual good planning that was possible.
I'd love to welcome you again.
Brigitte's apt. is really great. Starting with the location (a block from Arpoador) and the amenities, we were super happy with the whole experience. The place felt like an oasis within the amazing neighborhood of Ipanema. It is very quiet, modern, super clean and it had everything we needed.
Brigitte was very, very nice and responsive throughout the entire process. I would definitely recommend her place and will be booking her apt. whenever we are in Rio again.
Thank you for the very smooth experience, Brigitte!
Many thanks for the excellent valuation. Glad you enjoyed your stay and would always be a pleasure to welcome you again.
Brigitte's apartment is in a great location, easy to get to the beach as well as shopping and entertainment. When we arrived, the apartment was clean, and all of our needs were met. The apartment is decorated beautifully with modern touches. We would definitely stay here again. Thanks for the great stay Brigitte!
What a great experience! The apartment was even nicer than I expected, and the location is great - right between Rio's most famous beaches and close to shops, restaurants, etc.
The host was excellent and was available to help whenever we needed it. She even found a crib for my 9-month daughter, which was much appreciated.
If we return to Rio, we will definitely stay here again.
Thank you, Tobin. I'm glad you enjoyed the stay and would be a pleasure to welcome you one next time.
Appartamento molto carino in ottima posizione tra copacabana e ipanema, pulito Brigitte e sua figlia Sandra sono state molto gentili e disponibili, lo consiglio.
Gostaríamos de agradecer publicamente a estadia no ótimo apartamento da Brigitte no carnaval 2013. Ele fica na melhor região do Arpoador, ou seja, colado a Copacabana e Ipanema.
O apartamento é muito bem cuidado. Claramente, os donos tem um carinho enorme pelo lugar o fizeram com que nos sentíssemos em casa.
Ficamos muito bem acomodados em 4 pessoas, com um quarto para cada casal. Recomendamos fortemente a estadia, só esperamos que o apartamento não esteja ocupado na próxima vez que formos ao Rio!!!
J ´étais ravie de les accueillir c est des gens très sympas
