Perfect Ipanema
We were in Rio for five nights in October and immediately knew we had picked the right place when we arrived at the apartment. We were able to arrange airport pickup through Alastair the owner and were greeted on arrival by Ellie the apartment manger who showed us around and even recommended a tour company to use for visiting Christ the Redeemer. The apartment is very stylishly decorated and has every conceivable convenience you could need. There’s massive amounts of space and you are spoilt with two balconies with views of Christ the Redeemer statue. Make sure to try out the jacuzzi on the rooftop terrace! There is a decent selection of DVDs in the master bedroom if you fancy a night in and also a collection of books. Good powerful showers and comfortable beds. There’ even a washing machine and dryer. Ellie had a bottle of water cooling in the fridge and there was tea and coffee in the cupboard which was very welcome on our first morning. The penthouse is located on a residential street but literally around the surrounding streets there are a host of great restaurants to choose from and there’s a supermarket under fifteen minutes away if you fancy cooking for yourself. Three blocks away is Ipanema beach which is absolutely stunning and a nicer beach to Copacabana. There’s a metro station about fifteen minutes away which can get you into Centro to explore the older part of the city which I would recommend. From the very first time I contacted Alaister he was exceptionally helpful and sent through an insiders guide to Rio. Ellie left a mobile with us so we could contact her easily if we needed to and she also arranged a return transfer to the airport. If you are looking for somewhere special in a great location this is where you need to book!

Stylish and Spacious Apartment in Ideal Location
This 3 bedroom apartment is beautifully decorated and has bags of space. It is in a very safe location and is close to bars, restaurants & shops whilst being a short walk from Ipanema beach. The owners driver picked us up from the airport and his manageress was there to greet us. The owner Alastair sent us loads of useful information beforehand and our deposit was retuned very promptly. Would highly recommend this apartment - much better value than the hotels in Rio.

I liked it, I liked it a lot.
Great location, just a few minutes walk away from Ipanema beach and great places to eat. The apartment is in a very leafy, green and clean area. We felt safe the entire time we were there and the staff were very friendly and helpful. Generous rooms with colourful interiors and great outdoor spaces, especially the top balcony with Jacuzzi. We all thoroughly enjoyed our time in Rio. The apartment was beautiful and was just what we needed when travelling with our family to relax and explore this unique city.

Excelente departamento en Rio de Janeiro
El departamento es excelente. Muy bien ubicado, en una calle muy linda de Ipanema, a dos cuadras de La Lagoa y a tres de la playa. La ambientación me gustó mucho. Nos alojamos 6 personas en total, con dos niños pequeños. El departamento es agradable. Muy completo y bien mantenido. La persona que hizo el check in muy amable y dispuesta. El dueño deja una guía con consejos sobre el barrio y los lugares para comer y visitar de Río Disfruté mucho y volvería a alojarme allí.

Wonderful in every way
Having had a very satisfying stay at this wonderful apartment in early 2011 my partner and I had no hesitation in returning in January 2014. In fact we planned our dates in Rio around availability of this Ipanema penthouse. All the plaudits from fellow reviewers are justified. Our communications with Alastair, the owner, were plain sailing and the assistance from Felipe, Alastair's assistant in Rio, was in a class of its own. The location is ideal for the best beach in Rio and many nearby restaurants and other facilities. The apartment is indeed a wonderful space with some quite unique furnishings and artwork. Having access to two terraces is a big plus. We can"t imagine staying anywhere else when next in Rio.

The only place to stay in Rio
Firstly, let me start by saying the communication via the owner Alastair is exceptional. Everything was explained clearly and quick responses made for a seamless reservation process. This was greatly appreciated and some of the best customer service I have experienced in regards to renting a vacation apartment. Secondly - the apartment is a wonderful space filled with an eclectic blend of furnishings and art work capturing the spirit of vibrant Ipanema. The location is truly excellent- you couldn't want for a better base, and was perfect for our family of 2 small children and 3 adults. Thirdly, the extremely charming apartment manager Felipe - who greeted us and made us feel very welcome in his awesome city. I would definitely recommend to others wanting a fantastic home away from home in the most vibrant city in the world!

Fancy
We were a group of 4 friends, found the apartment super accommodating and in the best part of Rio (Ipanema). best views of the Christ Redeemer and only 3 blocks from the Lagoon and 5 blocks from the beach, everything is happening around you. The apartment was spacious and comfortable with all the necessities. Transactions with the owner were straight forward and without trouble. the building has a 24 hrs security guard. Would highly recommend you stay there!

Fabulous!
We stayed as a group of 4 during Carnival 2012. Alastair was very helpful during the booking process and in the lead up to our stay. We used his recommended driver to collect us from the airport and Felipe the property manager met us on arrival at the building. We were overjoyed when we arrived at the apartment to realise we had chosen the right place in exactly the right spot. The arrival briefing by Felipe was very helpful and the doormen of the building very courteous during our entire stay. A minor maintenance issue was brought to Felipe's attention on the 2nd day and promptly repaired. The apartment's location just cannot be beaten and I don't hesitate to recommend this place for your next visit to Rio de Janeiro

Thank you for your review.I do acknowledge that you did have a maintenance issue with a dripping tap in the master en suite.I certainly understand how annoying this can be.However my manager Felipe together with my handyman were able to fix this matter to your satisfaction the day after this was reported(despite Carnival being underway!).Apologies for this inconvenience and hope it didn't impact too much on the enjoyment of your stay.

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.
