About The Owner

While visiting my family in Rio de Janeiro in 2003, I visited some apartments with my good friend Woodie, who was also vacationing there at the time. Tired of paying high hotel rates, Woodie and I decided to buy a condo together--ecstatic at the idea of having a place to call home during vacations in Rio. Through the years, we did some upgrades to the original apartment and invested in 2 other units. Our latest project (280233) was a complete renovation of a 2 bedroom condo in Ipanema. Our goal was to maximize the living space and create a sophisticated but ultra-comfortable home-away-from-home.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2003

Why The Owner chose Ipanema

The location is amazing: within a two-block radius, we have amazing Ipanema Beach, a 24-hour grocery store, internet cafes, health clubs, a square that hosts a weekly produce and arts/crafts fair not to mention amazing restaurants.

We’ve been staying at this unit for over 5 years now, which should speak for itself alone. Not only do we love the place because of its proximity to everything (beach, restaurants, grocery stores and shopping), but the owners are wonderful and incredibly helpful when we need anything. The apartment is beautiful and incredibly immaculate. We never look anywhere else when coming back to Rio, which is every 6 months. Trust me, stay here and you won’t stay anywhere else!

Such a great apartment, in an amazing neighborhood, in Rio!

  • 5 of 5

I was sooo glad to be back in Rio, and staying in my favorite apartment (for 2 weeks this time)! I have traveled to Rio over 20 times in the past 18 years, and I have come back to this apartment for the last 14 trips. Fernando, Maria Helena, and Amaury are always kind and helpful apartment staff, the place is always sparkling clean upon my arrival, and the door staff are also very kind and courteous!

The convenience to the Beach, the unique, free, outside by the ocean, workout place at Arporador, Fruit Market in the Park steps away on Tuesdays, the Craft/Art Fair on Sundays, and the Fresh Juice bars on so many corners always warm my heart! My weather was perfect!

Keep providing your wonderful home so people may learn to love Rio as much as I do! This will forever be the first place I call to seek accommodations for each trip I make to Rio! Thank you!

Excellent experience from booking to departure!

My friend and I had a wonderful stay at this property. From the time of booking, the communication and interaction with the agent was excellent. Everything from the photos to the description of the apartment was spot on. It was also such a nice perk to get picked up and dropped off by Fernando, who was great. The location was amazing and only about a 7 minute walk to the beach. The apartment is very comfortable and spacious and the bathrooms are very modern and updated. I loved the rain showers and the water pressure was awesome. I'd definitely stay here again!

Nuestra estadía en el departamento fué excelente. La ubicación fué muy buena a media una cuadra de la playa y cerca de restaurantes y de tiendas donde uno puede comprar cosas para el desayuno.

El departamento te lo entregan limpio y es tal cual como sale en las fotos.

Woody es una persona seria y volvería a alquilar el departamento.

Es muy bueno que te recojan y lleven al aeropuerto ya que te da mucha seguridad si es la primera vez que llegas a Rio, en nuestro caso viajábamos con niños y me sentí aliviada por el servicio.

Excelente Departamento

  • 5 of 5

Este depto esta muy bien ubicado. Es acogedor, limpio, moderno y amplio con detalles que hacen sentir muy cómodo. 100% recomendable. La playa está sólo a 2 cuadras y hay un supermercado muy bueno a 1 cuadra. Una muy buena alternativa para disfrutar de Rio. Para ir en familia o 2 parejas de amigos (tiene 2 habitaciones con camas matrimoniales). El transporte incluido es un plus!

This condo was fabulous. It was exactly as it was represented online. Working with Woodie on renting the condo was professional and very efficient. Upon arrival we were very pleased at our selection of condo rental. The condo was very clean and had every we needed. Linens were wonderful as well as kitchen supplies. Locations was wonderful. Two short blocks to the beach and one block from a wonderful grocery store. Everything we needed was available to us. We felt very safe and at home in this conde. Wonderful experience and would definately rent with Woodie again.

Great restaurants, grocery store, Internet cafe, dry cleaner and gym within a one block radius. Also within a few blocks: Amazing shopping options (for both men and women), biking/running path along boardwalk, tourism companies (that can help you with day trips or tickets for local events), banks and ATM's that accept US cards, bars and nightclubs for every walk of life.
