“The only place to stay in Rio”
Reviewed 21 January 2014 for a stay in November 2013

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!

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.

“All you can Rio!”
Reviewed 17 October 2012 for a stay in October 2012

Yes, this apartment allows you to conjugate the verb Rio: I Rio, you Rio, she/he Rios, we all Rio!!! It offers indeed all you want to have during your holidays and more:
- great location: yes Ipanema is much more trendier than Copacabana. The Posto 9 beach is as described a few meters from the apartment and...only for beautiful people.
Restaurants, bars, shops abound!
- perfect views on the Corcovado/Cristo Redentor, so romantic in the morning to enjoy your breakfast with sun and stunning views, even more romantic at night so sip a little caïpirinha with the pink illuminated Christ;
- space & privacy: 2 terraces, 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, 2 floors...what else? With a family of 4, this was perfect. Once the children down, we would enjoy a whole evening out at the toproof terrace
- service: yes the owner is picky with his personnel and this is all for your comfort. Driver, manager, babysitter, doormen will do their utmost to accommodate all of your needs.
I would say the top of the chic is to have all this in a beautifully decorated flat. We really enjoyed staying there in Rio, would definitely recommend it and will come back.
