The apartment was perfect the same than the pictures . Perfect spot in Ipanema directly in front of the beach . Ricardo makes everything for us to be easy . For sure hi we'll go back and reserve at the same place :)
If there's a word to describe Ricardo's place and Ricardo's attentions is "Perfection" not only the place is as beautiful as you can appreciate on the pictures, the location couldn't be better and Ricardo makes sure your stay is as comfortable and as memorable as possible... We absolutely Loved Ricardo's place in Rio.. We will definitely come back to stay at his place.." 10 STARS"
Ricardo was amazing! He was so nice & welcoming & even let us extend our stay because we loved it so much! The apartment was beautiful, clean & had the best view ever!! The doormen were awesome too! Next time we visit Rio, we are definitely staying here.
Ricardo was an excellent host. The apartment was a little too minimalist in terms of equipment when I arrived for my 3 week stay - but Ricardo took care of all of my requests immediately in an efficient and friendly manner.
The finish of the apartment is slightly rough around the edges by European standards but the location and view are phenomenal and make that irrelevant.
Ricardo and his place were both absolutely fantastic. As you can see from the photos the view from the apartment is absolutely fantastic and you need to see it in person as the photos can never do it justice!
Ricardo is an brilliant host!! In the months before our stay I was sending lots of messages to Ricardo and asking lots of questions, Ricardo answered every single one and was a pleasure to deal with. As me and my friends were there for the World Cup I asked if Ricardo could get a bigger TV as we might want to watch a couple of matches in the apartment (a crazy request I know!) however when we got there Ricardo had bought a huge TV which was fantastic (I don't think it will be there subsequently as Ricardo is taking it for himself and you don't need a TV when visiting such a great city) however this just goes to show the lengths to which Ricardo will go to, to make sure his guest have a great time.
The walk to and from the apartment is a nice and safe short walk and there are spectacular views along the way and a couple of places to stop off for food and drink. In my opinion it is a perfect location!
We stayed in Ricardo studio apartment for 3 week The most amazing view .Good value Ricardo was a great host any problem he fix ASAP .We love you Ricardo .Ten min bus ride to ipanema beach .Only down points .Studio a bit dated /needs comfortable beds / noisy street . We will stay next year if you have hotel standard mattress Thanks so much Ricardo
My stay was perfect. I had a great time in Ricardo's apartment with such a great view of Rio de Janeiro. I would certainly repeat the experience many times!
One word: Exceptonial !!!!!
I cannot even begin to tell you how pleased we were with every aspect of our stay at Ricardo's apartment. After nearly 3 weeks traveling throughout Brazil, our trip culminated in a long weekend in Rio for Carnaval. Booking strictly on the view alone, my 3 friends and I decided to stay in Ricardo's flat. Needless to say, we are anything but disappointed. The flat is absolutely BEAUTIFUL, spacious and luminous. The photo hardly does the view through the apartment's floor-to-ceiling glass windows justice, which are wonderful for taking in the sunrise, the sunset or a birds-eye view of the beach below. This is no false advertising, the beach is literally RIGHT below. Breathtaking and with crystal-clear waters, it is much less crowded than it's Leblon and Ipanema counterparts. Though I was told it is a public beach, it is directly behind the Sheraton Hotel and that may trick the tourists into believing it is only for guests. Back to the apartment. The apartment is equipped with a fully-stocked kitchen (plates, silverware, pots & pans) stovetop and refrigerator, washing machine, but no oven. However, it's probably not often you're in Rio, so I encourage you to take advantage of some of the cities wonderful culinary offerings…but in a pinch, you have everything you need right here. The bathroom is modern with plenty of room for two people to be getting ready to enjoy a nice dinner or the city's spectacular nightlife at the same time. Never fear if you are four, as there are four mattresses, two tucked underneath the mattresses you first see when you walk in, and on rollers for ease in setting up at night. The apartment has plenty of room to place the additional mattresses, so no fear in sleeping directly on top of each other. One final note, the location is absolutely phenomenal. 10 minutes by cab, or 25 by foot to the beautiful beaches of Leblon and Ipanema. Guests to this apartment have the great advantage of the Sheraton's location right next door. Taxis are constantly waiting in the hotel's taxi line, streamlining the process of hailing or calling for a cab. This is also great for guests who may not speak Portuguese, as the hotel's concierge will see to it that you get to where it is you're going. As an individual who has spent extensive time living abroad, I promise you that it is also much safer this way. I will save the remaining words for Ricardo, and I hope you've stuck around this long. Ricardo as a host is absolutely PHENOMENAL. From the initial emails, to day-before arrival details and check-in procedure, Ricardo made communication very easy. Once we arrived, we finally had the pleasure of meeting each other, as he invited my friends and I out, taking time out of his own life, during one of Rio's most hectic weekends to show us around. Ricardo goes above and beyond, and I am now pleased to call him my friend! Thank...
Ricardo was a nice host, i never met him during my stay in Rio but he was quite reactive and answered my questions by email. Gret tips for restaurants!!!Ricardo's place is for sure one of the best value for money places you can get in Rio: neat, well equipped with a breathtaking view on the beach,actually the same one sheraton executive clients can get for much less ;)
The doormen were incredibly nice and helpful. I highly recommend to use the Sheraton facilities: pool, day use..and try their amazing breakfast (about 50 R) . The area is safe and a 10 min walk to Leblon beach. I wil definitely book Ricardo s place for my next vacation in Rio.
Brava persona .molto educata e gentile spero di ospitare ancora.pulizia spettacolare.
Ricardo is the perfect guest!
