Property description

Profiled and featured in 'The Sunday Times'(UK), and nominated in the LUX 2015 Hotel and Spa Awards!
Absolute prime location in the very heart of fashionable Ipanema, this luxury 2 double bedroom, 2 story very spacious 1500 sq ft penthouse is where mid-century Brazilian meets contemporary design(there is in addition a 3rd single bedroom with en-suite shower room).

IMPORTANT NOTE: this is a residential family building, not an apartment hotel.If you are after a 'mancation' type holiday please do not make an enquiry.This is strictly NOT the environment for sexual tourism.

AS OF 2015 BRAND NEW FEATURES INCLUDE 2 HI DEFINITION CONNECTED TVS,CABLE TV NOW ON BOTH LEVELS,INTERNET ACCESS NOW EXTENDED TO INCLUDE BOTH FLOORS,BRAND NEW DESIGNER KITCHEN,3RD SHOWER ROOM NOW COMPLETELY RE FURBISHED,BRAND NEW 2ND SHOWER ROOM,NEW DVD LIBRARY,NEW SILENT SPLIT AIR CON IN MAIN LIVING/DINING AREA,NEW CEILING/WALL FANS IN KITCHEN/3RD BEDROOM,4 STAND ALONE FLOOR FANS,NEW ART AND NEW MANAGEMENT !!

Accommodation includes 3 bathrooms,2 living rooms,quality contemporary art ,wireless broadband,2 LCD TVs(40',32') with cable/dvd,washer/dryer,power shower,24h security etc. Also 2 outdoor spaces,one 1st floor balcony and a decked terrace on the top floor with private,heated Jacuzzi(not overlooked). Majestic views of the mountains and Christ statue (illuminated at night). Minutes from the beach,exactly parallel to the most desirable stretch of Ipanema beach, the famed Post 9. This apartment has been carefully designed to capture the relaxed and timeless spirit of bossa nova,retro cool at it's best!

Just some of the many artists represented include Aoleo,Oscar Niemeyer,Noe Klablin,Carlos Sena and Andy Warhol.Furnishings includes work by Eileen Gray, Florence Broadhurst,Sergio Rodrigues,Vivienne Westwood and Giuseppe Scapinelli.




Extra Maid Service: Extra maid service is available.A day session(4/5 hours) costs R130.A mini session lasting approx. 2 hours is available for R60.Please make sure you book these at the time of booking as they can be difficult to arrange last minute.Their duties can also cover ironing,food shopping and child minding.
An English speaking babysitter service is available for R20 per hour,plus taxi fare if required to stay after 1am.

Airport pick up service.: Airport pick up service is available with a very reliable named driver(Wagner) in new model, air conditioned saloon car for R130 .He will wait for you at arrivals with a placard bearing your name. I strongly recommend you take advantage of this offer as it helps my management to co-ordinate your smooth arrival at the apartment.Payment is direct to the driver.A van with an 8 seat capacity plus luggage is also possible for R180.
Great rates are also available for local car tours or trips further afield to Parity or Buzios.

Special Notes: Being a penthouse means the apt. is flooded with light (many Rio apts. can be dark due to so many tall buildings facing each other).

Sleeps 5 in conventional beds.There is a sofa bench/bed that can be utilized as a single bed and a spare mattress that can be placed anywhere.If you are willing to be flexible in your sleeping arrangements up to 7 individuals can be comfortably accommodated.

Having 2 very distinct outdoor areas on 2 levels combined with panoramic views means the apartment is suffused with the natural grandeur of Rio.

In addition there is the ease and convenience of being directly parallel and just 350 meters (5 minute walk) to Post 9 on the beach,generally regarded as the absolute apex of Carioca beach culture.

Finally ,for the discerning traveler, this beautifully maintained property is positioned atop an architecturally very distinguished building.

Car: Not Necessary

Positioned in a calm,residential street canopied with tropical trees adorned with orchids, this is referred to by locals as the 'noble' area of Ipanema. Being to the left of Rua Vinicius de Morais this is seen to be the safest part of Ipanema, not being in the 'shadow' of any favela.Known as the 'Beverly Hills of Rio' due to the many telenovela stars who live here. Tom Jobim wrote the classic 'The Girl From Ipanema' song while living in this street in 1962(a plaque commemorates this at no.107). You are exactly parallel to and just 4 blocks from the legendary Post 9 on the beach. 2 blocks from the exciting shopping opportunities on the main thoroughfare of Rua Visc. de Piraja, and just 3 blocks from the Lagoa. Although taxis are plentiful and inexpensive, being so well located means you can walk to all the local culinary,cultural and nightlife attractions Ipanema is so famous for.You are assigned 2 parking spaces within the building which is useful if you hire a car or have Brazilian friends visiting.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: Very widely traveled.Brought up in the Far East and Australia,am now mostly based in the UK. For a long time I had the apt looked after by one of the biggest agencies in Rio.The problem was that far too few staff were looking after far too many apartments,which meant that maintenance was hit or miss.Speaking from direct personal experience,compared to running an equivalent apt in New York or London,Rio presents unique challenges.Not only are running costs roughly triple but getting even the simplest things done can be challenging(and yes that is an understatement!).4 years ago I decided to manage the apt. myself directly from London with a full time English manager based locally(she speaks fluent Portuguese) who looks after this apt. exclusively.This can be at times very demanding because if something is not right,trust me, I get told about it! We are now able to provide a very bespoke service from the moment you leave arrivals at the airport.My manager and I are 100% committed to providing you with the best experience of Rio possible.

Why the Owner Chose Rio de Janeiro:
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! Rio (a city that,even within Brazil, is the most 'Brazilian' of cities) is also a very culturally rich society with a strong theater tradition,great modern artists,the center of the telenovela and media industries,an extraordinary and diverse musical heritage and a vigorous intellectual history involving great writers and architects.It is also fascinating to observe the vast changes Rio is currently undergoing.The speed and scale in urban regeneration is unprecedented amongst any major world city in modern times.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
Space, and a tremendous feeling of privacy floating above everywhere else in your own private world. Apart from great style,I think to have the rare combination of 2 entirely different outdoor spaces on separate floors together with contrasting and amazing views coupled with the location so close to Post 9 on the beach.All this and being a penthouse awash with natural light allows an ambiance that is pretty special.Ticks all the key boxes!
