  • Very comfortable! Great Location

    "Max’s apartment was great. It is a very comfortable, clean and quiet place. The apt. is fully equipped with nice furniture and very nicely decorated. The kitchen is large and it was perfect for us who enjoy cooking some meals. The location couldn’t be any better. We enjoyed walking to many of the cafes and restaurants that are in the neighborhood. We really loved this neighborhood! Max was very helpful. He answered all our questions and gave us some recommendations of places to see. We would definitely stay at this apt. again"

  • Stayed for nearly a month!

    "Family of 4 stayed for nearly a month and it was FABULOUS! We really appreciated the proximity to Old Town and being able to walk to most of the sites we wanted to see. There were lots of police in Old Town so we always felt safe. It is a trek to the airport but we used this place as a base for exploring all over Ecuador. We felt safe leaving the things we didn't need for days at a time and Francisco and Evette were great hosts - helping us arrange transport and answering all of our questions! The home is well equipped and we enjoyed being able to do laundry and cook for ourselves while exploring Ecuador!"

  • Lucrecia Farfan

    "Awesome place close to Miraflores, Barranco, and Chorillos, walking or riding bicycle. It is a great way to walk and enjoy the malecon. You can go down to the ocean and grab a bite in some great restaurants. Beautiful evenings and great view. Love the place. Most of all I love the peace and quiet during the week. Some weekends young people have some parties, but it is not that bad."

  • A wonderful place!

    "We have had some wonderful days in Jose Ignacio! The house really exceeded our high expectations. The things that I appreciated most were the peaceful location, the beautiful views and the high and modern standard of the house. Also, the kids were very happy with the garden, the pool and the ping-pong table. I highly recommend this beautiful place!"

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.
