About the Property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms (Sleeps 4) - or as a 1 Bedroom Suite Only

When you travel long distances, you want and deserve the best.


Welcome to Rio! When you arrive to the property by taxi, UBER, or a pre-arranged private driver (who we may arrange for you)....

You will be greeted by our Hostess and one of our 24-Hour Doormen who will assist you with your luggage.


You will get a quick orientation of the property that we call Samba Suites. This way you may get the most out of this luxury property and the surrounding area which, by the way, sits amongst the energy and nightlife of this famous, upscale neighborhood!


When you want to retire for the night, our location is quiet, relaxing and very tranquil.

In fact...

You will be pampered by brand-new, imported Queen and Full-sized beds with luxurious high thread-count sheets to slide between when it's time to recharge after an invigorating day on one of the world's most famous beaches, Ipanema.

You will be situated just steps from the warm sands of the beach and only blocks from the famous Fasano Hotel where celebrities from all over the world stay year round in this modern, boutique-style Hotel desgined by Philippe Starck; walk by, you just may see someone you know like Madonna, Alicia Keys or Rhianna (or at least their fans).

I'm a Belieber, or know someone who is...

We are also located 2 blocks from where Justin Bieber likes to frequent but that's another story...

I like to cook...

A well-equipped kitchen is waiting for anyone who loves to cook (minus an oven; it's too hot to bake) or just someone who wants to throw something into the microwave and be done with it. It's all there; imported white quartz countertops, modern glass induction cooktops, Electrolux 'blue touch' stainless steel appliances including microwave oven, frost-free refrigerator and dishwasher, Mr. Coffee automatic drip coffee maker, NESPRESSO espresso machine (George Clooney is extra), toaster, toaster oven, blender, champagne, brandy and beer glasses!


Relax on the patio, sipping an after dinner drink or afternoon tea with the sound of the rippling water cascading down the 8 foot tall waterfall listening to Bossa Nova music on the remote-controlled Bose Wave stereo system.


For those who want to stay in touch with the world, there is a 100+ channel digital HD cable system with CNN International connected to large HD and Ultra HD 4K LED Flat-Screen TV's. Bring your blu-ray discs (Americas Region) and watch on the available high-definition Blu-Ray player or select from the many in the DVD library or see what's on Netflix, it's included.

I need to do some work...

If you would like to catch up on some work, bring your laptop or tablets and sit at the desks complete with wireless hi-speed internet access

Do I need adapters?

All the power is 110v using a mixture of universal US 3-prong and Brazilian 2 and 3-prong outlets with most power adapters included. Europeans may want to bring adapters just in case.

I'm in the mood...

For the romantic at heart, the LED lighting is on dimmers so you can create thousands of romantic moods.

What else?

3 of the most difficult things to find in a vacation rental in Rio is a good location (close to the beach and action, yet safe); chic, modern decor & silence at night. I hope I've been able to accomplish all 3 for you.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: I went on vacation to Rio eleven years ago from the US and six months later I moved to Ipanema and have been here ever since. Let's see if you fall in love with this great city as I did!

Why the Owner Chose Ipanema, Rio de Janeiro - State of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil:
An amazing story of a family feud that kept this property locked shut for over 20 years. When I got it, it was if time had stood still with all the best from the 70's and 80's still inside. The entire condo went through a ground up, walls-in complete restoration with new plumbing, wiring, everything. Even the floorplan was completely modified to make the best use of the space creating two completely separate bedroom suites, virtually soundproof between each other.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
The comments past guests have made is that it is quiet, comfortable, chic, with all the first-world comforts while being in the heart of the action...AND they were surprised how closely it matches the photos.
