Local Services & Businesses
Sports & Adventure Activities
This is a brilliant apartment right in the heart of Copacabana. In a safe spot, the apartment is spacious and very comfortable for 8 people. it is suitable for guests with mobility difficulties. The 24 hour door staff and Adonis, the apartment manager are brilliant! Very attentive, organised all our wheelchair accessible transport around Rio and answered any queries without delay. In fact, from our initial contact with John, right through to the end of the holiday, the service and support and advice provided has been outstanding. In summary, top accommodation and top notch support. I would highly recommend this apartment!
SECOND TIME RENTING
We loved renting this condo for the second time. It has all the comforts of home and is in a great location. This visit to Rio we really enjoyed all the new museums and other new city projects underway for the upcoming olympics. Thank you John again for all your sightseeing and restaurant suggestion.
Awesome find in Rio
This bright and spacious apartment will make your trip to Rio even more memorable. The pictures really don't do it justice. The apartment is only 2 blocks from Copacabana beach and a quick ride to the best spots in Ipanema and Leblon. Tons of great restaurants are nearby, but there is an awesome kitchen with everything you need to prepare a feast! The bedrooms are cozy and cool, and the living/dining area is massive, great for a group of adults or families. I would definitely rent again!
New Year's 2016
7 of us - friends from NY & Brazil - rented this place to spend the last days of 2015 & new year's 2016.
What a great find! The apartment is very well located, 2 blocks from the beach. Very, very spacious and well appointed - nice furniture, every appliance you might need. All linens & towels were first rate. 4 bathrooms made it all very easy for the group. A maid cleaned & did the wash every other day. What a treat!
The building has 24 hours doorman, which made us feel extra safe.
New Year's Eve in copacabana is something you should experience at least once in your lifetime. 2 million people celebrating on the beach, all wearing white and drinking champagne. And because we were so close to it, it was no hassle to get to & from the party. It was an unforgettable night & vacation.
This is my second time renting the place and I will keep coming back!
WORLD CUP WONDERFUL
This was a fantastic condo for our group during the World Cup. The website description tells it all. Great location to all beaches, restaurants and shopping. We found the city of Rio to be very easy to get around either walking, taxis or Metro. We would like to be able to rent again during the 2016 Olympics. Thanks again.
Thank you John. Our stay in your beautiful condo was a great experience. My family loved being so close to the beach and the neighborhood was very safe and quiet. We would be very happy to rent from you in the future. Thanks again for all your help during the rental process.
