“Great rental with all the necessities”
Reviewed July 24, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Overall this is a great rental. If you are ok with you base of operations being in Barra da Tijuca it is really good. The access is very easy: you can actually get to the Potoes/Barrasul condo complex using the BRT bus from Galeao Airport (with one transfer) and it will cost you just R$3.

There is a pool and access to the beach via a small ferry. The BRT buses can take you to Alvorada bus terminal which is next to the Barra Shopping which is at the point of this writing the largest mall in South America. There are also non-BRT buses that can take you to Recreio beach in the west or the fancy and more famous Rio areas like Ipanema, Leblon and Copacabana in the east. But please be aware that the city of Rio de Janeiro is a huge sprawling mess of a city that has mountains dividing it into parts. And Barra is quite far from all the touristy attractions that you might be interested in (a direct bus ride to Ipanema will take at least an hour, probably more).

Other than that the only issue that should be mentioned is the lack of a proper supermarket in the vicinity of the condo as well as limited number of eateries in general (at least that was what I found).

In conclusion: the rental itself is great, the area of Barra da Tijuca is pretty far away (they are building a metro line to it but I do not know when it will be ready) and you are likely to spend a lot of time getting to and from the Rio landmarks.

Artem,

Thanks a lot for your review.
The only thing to note is that THERE IS a big supermarket near the condo (5 minutes). There is a photo in the apartment listing and the supermarket has a van that takes people from the condo to the supermarket and back to the condo. This van is free. You do not pay to use it.
Anyway, I am happy that you enjoyed your stay in Rio!
You and Liban are always welcome!
Best wishes
