Great place to stay in Rio!

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time in Rio at Monica´s apartment. The location is perfect, 3 blocks from Copa and 5 blocks from Ipanema Posto 8! Good shopping nearby, also many supermarkets and great restaurants.

The apartment is as nice as pictured, very luminous and lots of space. Also very clean!

Monica was a great host. She not only received us very late in the evening, but was also there to help us by our departure. She was always available during our stay.

This property is really highly recommendable and we would be glad to return!

Excellent location, nice apartment

  • 4 of 5

We loved our stay at Monica's apartment. It's hard to find a decent apartment with 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms at this price. Our family group was 4 adults, 2 kids ages 10 and 9. The location was optimal for us: easy walking distance to both Copacabana Beach and Ipanema, close to the subway, but set on a quiet, tree-lined residential street away from the noise. The living/dining area is small but furnished in such a way that everyone always had a comfortable place to sit. The air conditioning in the bedrooms works very well, a must in Rio in the summer! Living room isn't air-conditioned, but we survived. :-)

The description of the property is accurate. Kitchen is small but totally adequate for breakfasts, snacks, happy hours, etc. (We ate dinner out.) The 3rd bedroom is tiny, with a trundle bed. It was a tight squeeze for an adult couple w/luggage, but it has its own bathroom and has more privacy b/c it's in the back of the apartment, so that compensated for its size. Property is very clean and well-maintained.

Monica was the best owner I've ever rented from. She took the time to explain everything thoroughly and was available on WhatsApp for questions. The doorman, Severino, was super nice and helpful when we accidentally locked ourselves out of the apartment! I would highly recommend the property to families on a budget who want to stay near Ipanema and want the comfort and safety of home.

Recommended eateries nearby: Copanema juice bar, Galeto's Copa Rio restaurant, and the fancy French bakery down the street, which Monica will tell you about. Corner padaria is also great.

Recommended excursions (along with Cristo and Pao de Acucar): subway to/from Praca Maua in Centro, where you can visit Museo do Amanha and the art museum. Arcos de Lapa and Cascadaria Selaron.

Word of warning to other travelers: Copacabana Beach is quite the hotspot for robbing tourists. We had one scary encounter, but thanks to a friendly local family and staff at a nearby beach kiosk, nothing was taken and no one was hurt. Take care on weekdays, when fewer locals are at the beach. The beachside kiosk near the corner of Souza Lima is good; the staff will warn you if they see a pack of thieves around. Safety in numbers!

  • 5 of 5

A great option for a stay in Rio. Everything went well with Monica from the booking process to the check out. She is vey nice and helpful !. We enjoyed a lot her apartment very well located 3 blocks from the beach , close to restaurants and supermarkets which was very convenient for us as we also like to cook by ourselves . The apartment is very comfortable and well equipped ( just missing some spoons !) including a nice internet wifi connection. Definitively we will come back ...

Couldn't have asked for a better place/owner

  • 5 of 5

I have nothing but great things to say about Monica and her apartment. Monica was very welcoming, helpful, available, and gave us plenty of inside information about what to do and where to go. The apartment was great. Adequate living, dinning room, and kitchen space and 6 of us were living there. The location was excellent. It was safe and within walking distance from all of copacabana and all of ipanema (and a slightly longer walking distance from Leblon). Also, it is conveniently right by a metro stop. We only had to take cabs a few times the entire 2 weeks we were there. All around excellent, no complaints.

Comme à la maison

  • 5 of 5

L'appartement est parfaitement conforme aux photos de l'annonce. Nous étions 2 mais il y a suffisamment de place pour plus de personnes. Nous nous sommes sentis comme à la maison, idéalement situé entre Ipanema et Copacabana dans un quartier calme et agréable qu'on affectionne particulièrement. Tous commerces en bas de la maison.

Monica est une personne très attentionnée qui saura vous aiguiller si vous ne connaissez pas Rio. Elle sait s'adapter également à vos besoins, encore merci pour l'accueil, nous reviendrons avec grand plaisir...

Ressalto, primeiramente, a inigualável hospitalidade da proprietária e sua prontidão referente a dicas de passeios na cidade e orientações. Quanto ao apartamento, destaco a excelente localização (seguro, a poucos metros da praia, de mercados, farmácias e restaurantes); ambientes amplos, limpos e muito confortáveis. Sem dúvida alguma optarei por esse apartamento quando retornar ao Rio.
