  • SIX YEARS LATER...

    "Everything we had to say about this apartment (See Review from September 2008) still holds true. Clearly something about this city, this neighborhood, and this apartment keeps drawing us, bringing us back every year for stays of at least a month. By now, after six years, whenever we arrive we feel like we’re coming home—and that’s not something that can be said about many rental apartments and deserves reiteration. The spaciousness, quality of light, and general level of comfort draw us in every time. Over the years, favorite places have closed but others continue to open. Shared public spaces (cafés and restaurants) is a basic fact (and factor) of Porteño life."

  • Wonderful experience

    "I travelled to Rio with three friends to watch the World Cup and were fortunate to stay at Valeria's wonderful apartment June 12-23, 2014. The apartment is exactly what you see in the pictures. Well furnished, clean and in a secure building that included a convenience shop and cafe on the first floor. The view from the patio is terrific as it overlooks the ocean and sandy beaches of Barra da Tijuca. The area is upscale and we felt very safe as we made our way to restaurants and bars. We especially enjoyed the running/cycling path that runs the entire length of one of the most beautiful beaches you will ever find. The apartment was equipped with four beach chairs that we used daily. Highly recommend this apartment. We hope to make it back at some point in the future as this trip was a 10 out of 10."

Brazil Travel Tips

Best Seasons to Visit Brazil Vacation Rentals

Brazil is the largest country in South America. A large portion of it sits within the tropics and enjoys a warm year-round tropical climate. The southern parts are more temperate and can get quite cold in the wintertime. The summer months are from October through May, and winter runs from June through September, although Rio de Janeiro and the Amazon regions rarely get cold. If you are planning a visit to either of these areas, you can choose your own travel season. If you don’t like crowds, you will want to avoid Rio de Janeiro during carnival time which occurs in February each year. Millions of people from around the world flock during this time to see the colorful parades and experience the festive vibe. If you want to explore the southern regions, the best season to travel is during the warmer summer months. You can hire a car to get around and enjoy exploring this lesser-known side of Brazil at leisure.

Getting to Brazil Lodging

The primary airport in Brazil is Garoulos International Airport in Sao Paolo. Most international airlines use this as their point of entry into Brazil and for this reason, it is the busiest airport in South America. From here, you can get connecting flights on to Rio de Janeiro, Brazilia, Manaus and various other destinations in Brazil and South America. There are daily scheduled flights that bring visitors from Europe, North America, South Africa and other South American countries. Be prepared to walk quite a distance from the aircraft through passport control and baggage claim. If you plan to stay in Sao Paolo then arrange for a private transfer from the airport or negotiate a set fare with the taxi driver. Sao Paolo is a city that never sleeps and traffic on the highway getting into the city is congested 24 hours a day. If you take a metered taxi, you may find that you have paid more than you bargained for unless you negotiate ahead of time.

Comfortable Accommodation at Brazil Villas

One of the things that may strike you as you arrive in cities such as Rio de Janeiro and Sao Poalo is the vast number of high-rise buildings. These two cities are among the most populous in the world with the vast number of people living in high-rise buildings. Many of the vacation homes are conveniently located in major tourist areas so visitors have easy access to the attractions. Unless you rent a penthouse suite, the apartments are generally quite compact. They are still functional and comfortably furnished. In general, they can accommodate between two and four adults. For those that have larger budgets, you can consider renting a villa which offers a far more spacious accommodation. Villas are generally available in the smaller towns and seaside resorts.

Rio De Janeiro Vacation Rentals

Rio de Janeiro is one of Brazil’s most popular travel destinations. The world-famous Copacabana Beach, Sugarloaf Mountain and the impressive statue of Christ the Redeemer are all well-known landmarks of the city. Located on the Tropic of Capricorn, Rio enjoys a warm tropical climate. This is one of the reasons it is such a popular vacation destination. Visitors can enjoy the beaches and city sights throughout the entire year. The most popular time to visit Rio is in February when the world-famous Carnival and street parade take place. As with most major cities, accommodations can be expensive. Vacation rentals make sense for people who plan to visit for more than just a few days. They offer more affordable accommodation options.
