Paradise!
Me and my fiance spent the first portion of our honeymoon at the penthouse in Ipanema. Between Alastair, the owner of the property and Ellie, the property's manager, we were completely satisfied with the service and the accommodations. Alastair was extremely helpful leading up to the trip, helping answer a number of questions I had. Ellie greeted us when we arrived and made us feel comfortable, offering suggestions on how to spend our time in Rio. She helped us find a tour guide in the city and also arranged a driver for us Saturday night. Uber is easy and convenient, but if you're a tourist and planning on bar hopping, a private driver is the way to go. Ellie will help accommodate any need you have. This was my favorite part. The fact that someone was there, always available to help, especially if there's an emergency. On our last night, I left the keys to the apartment in an Uber! Ellie took care of it for us, notifying the doorman before we got back. No problem! And I can't not mention Alves, the doorman! He always greeted us with a smile, extremely courteous, helped us with our bags when we needed. I have to also say, the property is in a terrific location, we felt safe the entire time. It's a few blocks from the beach and all the shopping and restaurants. We had a wonderful time. Rio is a very beautiful place, there's no place quite like it. Que Beleza!

A Rio Gem
Had a Fantastic stay! Alastair's very stylish place truly captures the colour and vibrancy of Rio! Located on a very quiet tree lined street but steps away from the beaches and all the action. The rooftop deck is perfect for a jacuzzi and chill after a day at Ipanema beach. Ellie (the host that met me) was super helpful and even found a reasonably priced gym close by ( Beach Club Gym) The doormen at the building were also very kind and helpful! Highly recommend this Rio Gem!

Fantastic Penthouse - Very Friendly and Helpful Host
I stayed at this penthouse during carnival with two friends. Staying here made our whole experience so much better than it may have been. As it is conveniently split into two levels ii offers both communal space and privacy at different times. The host Alistair was very responsive to inquiries and an invaluable source of knowledge regarding the neighborhood and Rio in general. Conveniently located with lots of restaurants and shops nearby with the beach a 5 min walk away. I'd encourage anybody looking for a place in Rio to stay here.

Perfect location in Ipanema and fabulous apartment
We loved our 10 day stay at Alastair’s gorgeous penthouse apartment in Ipanema. The apartment is located in the best part of Ipanema on a quiet street but only minutes away from the beach, shops and restaurants. The apartment itself was fantastic with colourful design, comfortable beds and a fantastic penthouse jacuzzi with great views. Having two levels also enabled a level of privacy between the two main bedrooms which was nice. Alastair was very helpful and responsive to my emails and questions before we arrived and during our stay. When we identified that one of the wifi routers did not seem to be working, it was almost immediately replaced which was most appreciated. I highly recommend Alastair’s place to anyone planning a trip to Rio – we’ll be back!

Beautiful Penthouse with a view of Christ the Redeemer
We stayed in this beautiful penthouse for ten days. The beds were super comfortable and the accommodation was awesome. The location was just perfect for us and in a very safe neighbourhood. Prime location and we just couldn't walk past the patio doors to the terrace without looking up at Christ the Redeemer. We actually had to stay in a hotel on Copacabanna beach for our last night and it was nowhere near as comfortable as the penthouse. A truly wonderful stay.

AN AMAZING PENTHOUSE
The penthouse was so beautifully put together with quirky vintage furniture mixing a statement wall paper. The whole combination is well thought of as it works with the Brazilian vibes. It is an interior design feast, really enjoy the place. As for location it is second to none, perfect for a safe walk to Ipanema Beach. Alastair is a great host with plenty of advise on fun and more fun.

Man fühlt sich sehr willkommen!
Die Wohnung ist super gelegen zwischen dem Strand von Ipanema und der Lagoa. Alle beteiligten Personen waren unglaublich herzlich und hilfsbereit, Rückfragen wurden immer umgehend beantwortet. Die Wohnung selbst ist mit zwei großen Doppelzimmern inkl. eigenen Bädern perfekt für 4 Personen. Im kleinen Einzelzimmer und auf der Couch im oberen Bereich hätten zudem noch zwei weitere Personen eine Schlafplatz. Wir haben uns wie zuhause gefühlt und würden bei einer Reise mit mehreren Personen diese Wohnung einem Hotel immer vorziehen! Auf jeden Fall empfehlenswert! Wir kommen bestimmt noch mal wieder!

Wow, glamoureous penthouse and top location!
I speak french so I will do my best to write in english. Stayed there for 6 nights. After reservation, Alastair the owner sent emails about what to do in Rio, what not to do and how to use appliances in his penthouse. Thanks to him because he told me in time that we would need a Visa to come to Rio!! We are Canadians. When we arrived, we met the charmant owner Alastair who was staying there the week before, Ellie the manager and Alveis the doorman. Those 3 peoples where more than welcoming! So kind, respectful, and honest. They doing their best to make you feel happy. More than our expectations. Very nice humain beings! 🙏 The penthouse is wonderful. We felt at home. Warm and glamoureous atmosphere! Wonderful decoration.Wow! One cool terrasse and one great balcony. All included. Real flowers everywhere.🌺 Top location in Ipanema and situated in one of the best and beautiful residential street. Felt secure. Close to the beach, lagoon, restaurants, stores, metro, taxis..🚖 The penthouse is beside a school. We had great time watching children playing soccer🏃 For the same price of an hotel room beachfront with NO balcony, since we were 2 friends sharing the condo, we got all this💥 We recommend this place without any hesitation. 👭😎🌴

About the neighbourhood
Ipanema is almost like a small kingdom set apart.The timeless life style associated with such easy access to such an extraordinary beach is very seductive.Now safer than ever,quite simply Ipanema is in a class of it's own.It's where Brazil looks for new trends and is a show place for the nation.It is classic,eternal Rio and the energy is palpable. It is the Rio of your dreams!Tom Jobim wrote 'The Girl from Ipanema' while living in this street in 1962 (a plaque commemorates this at no. 107). Although taxis are plentiful and inexpensive being so well located means you can walk to all the restaurants, sights and nightlife for which Ipanema is so famous. Positioned in a calm, residential street canopied with trees adorned with orchids, this duplex penthouse is located in an exclusive area referred to by locals as the 'noble' area of Ipanema. Being to the left of Rua Vininius de Morais this is seen to be the safest part of Ipanema, not being in the 'shadow' of any favela.Also it has a calmer aspect than the edgier,more commercial eastern borders of Ipanema around General Osorio Square/metro.There are also 2 secured parking spaces within the building available to you which is useful if you rent a car or have Brazilian friends visiting by car. IMPORTANT NOTE: This is a high end purely residential district.The penthouse is located in a family building, not an apartment hotel for tourists.This is strictly NOT the environment for sexual tourism.I need clients to be very respectful of my neighbors. Thank you for your understanding. Finally this unique property is suffused with the natural scenic grandeur of Rio.Being a penthouse also means the apt. is flooded with light (many Rio apts. can be dark due to so many tall buildings facing each other).
Getting around
New metro station now open at Praca Nossa Senhora. Buses run frequently from main shopping street of Visconde Piraja. Taxis are plentiful.Uber is very efficient.
Access
Car not needed
How to get there
I would recommend you have my named driver pick you up from the airport in a new model, air conditioned saloon at the price of BR R140.An 8 seater mini bus is also available for BR R220.
