Guestbook comments from the manager

The Amazon suite has everything you could possibly want for a perfect stay in Rio. The location is perfect! As the description says, not only are you "steps from the beach", but also steps from the market, shopping, bars/ restaurants, subways, taxis, etc. The interior is incredibly clean, safe and secure, and the owner has gone to great lengths to make the suite very contemporary and comfortable with all the amenities a "gringo" could want while travelling abroad. Best of all, Petra and Jeff are fantastic hosts. Both were INCREDIBLY helpful and accommodating from the moment we arrived until we left for the airport to return home. Who needs a concierge?! Considering the location and the amenities included, this has to be one of the best valued suites in the entire city!

Great Studio!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at the Amazon Suite in April 2013. This is a great apartment. I have been coming to Rio since 2001 and have stayed in many apartments around Ipanema, Arpoador, Leme, Barra da Tijuca and Copacabana. The Amazon Suite ranks right near the top of the list. It is clean, modern, comfortable with good amenities. High quality furnishings makes the Amazon Suite the ideal place to stay for 1 person or a couple. Petra, Iris and Jolien were very professional and extremely helpful throughout the rental process and during my entire stay. They made certain to confirm everything before my arrival and was only a phone call away if I needed them. Their driver was very cordial and the staff was able to provide a cell phone for me. I had opportunities to stay at less expensive apartments but chose the Amazon Suite because the others could not compare with the level of comfort that the Amazon Suite provided. I highly recommend this apartment to those who value comfort over savings. It is well-equipped and very quiet and safe.

Excellent Property

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed here for 5 nights and the place is wonderful. You are a football field away to the beach and a 24 hour grocery store is just around the corner. Petra and Inge were very helpful with any inquiries we had prior to our arrival and during our stay. I would definitely stay at this place again. The rental process was seamless. EXCELLENT LOCATION!

Incredible Rio

  • 5 of 5

Great location, literally less than 100 m to Avenue Atlantica and the beach. Clean, modern and very comfortable apartment on a quiet street with 24/7 security. You will sleep well on a comfy bed with no street noise whatsoever. English speaking hosts Inge and Petra are excellent in responding to your enquiries. Easy access to buses and taxis. English speaking tour agent right next door who are very helpful. Pleanty of restaurants in close walking distance. Ten minute taxi to Ipanema area or an easy 20 - 30 minute stroll on the beach boardwalk. Would definitely recommend RioBay and this property.

Stylish Studio Apartment near Copacabana Beach

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay in Rio over the holidays, in large due to being lucky enough to find Amazon suite. What a cute studio apartment, well decorated and larger than it appears in the photos. Rio Bay housing was always prompt to answer our emails and answer all my silly question leading up to our arrival and even arranged a car pickup & drop off at the airport. We are from the USA and have used VRBO dozens of times all over our country but this was the first time we were renting in a foreign country. Malou was so helpful getting us set up when we arrived and even helped us a few times to make recommendations & reservations at some restaurant throughout the week, when I contacted her on email. The suite was only 2 blocks from Copacobana beach, which is perfect of you are there for an event happening at the beach like we were > New Year's Eve! It was a rainy night and there were millions of people on the blocked off streets and whenever we had to use the bathroom or go back for champagne refills, we only had to walk 2 blocks form the action to go to our own place, then go back out again. Priceless. Its easy to catch cabs near this apartment, as there is a stand right up the block and there is a grocery close by. We would recommend this apartment to anyone traveling to Rio (best for singles or couples) who is attending an event on Copacobana Beach.

Car: not necessary

Copacabana is one of the reasons why people fall in love at first sight with Rio. There is always something happening, and there is a great variety of restaurants, juice house’s, bars and cafes to go eat or drink. The apartment is at a suberb location in Copacabana, at less then 2 minutes walk from the beach and with a Pao de Açucar Grocery store around the corner on Av. Nossa Senhora de Copacabana. Popular attractions in the neighbourhood include the fisherman's corner at Posto 6, the landmark 5* hotel Copacabana Palace and the Forte de Copacabana. Copacabana is pretty safe and served by three subway stations, many taxis and several bus lines.
