Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: I'm not a professional of real estate. Respect and quality of reception will always be my priorities, I want my clients to enjoy my place and Rio as much as I do.

Why the Owner Chose Rio de Janeiro:
I've discovered Rio and Brazil in 2008, and it was love at first sight. The beauty of the sites, the kindness of the people and the unique energy of the place have immediately touched my heart. I was then an executive in Finance, but I later on decided to move to Rio to study psychology: the perfect place for a new start in life. I am doing what I want to do in the place where I want to be... You'll understand why when you'll arrive in Rio! NB: I personnally live in this apartment when it is not rented. I love the place and give a special care to it. I am happy to share this experience with my guests, and hope you'll enjoy it as much as I do.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
The unique benefit of my property are: Ipanema (crème de la crème in Rio), location within Ipanema (beach, restaurants, bars, 24h supermarket, gym, banks, metro, bus, taxi station... just down the building), space (1200 ft² or 110 m², 3 large and independent bedrooms, 2 bathrooms) and... silence (an absolute need and luxury for me)!
