Thrill to the iconic and panoramic views of mountains,the Christ statue and the city below.


Recommended and featured in 'Boutique Homes','The Sunday Times' magazine , 'Savoteur' and 'Living Etc' (the biggest selling modern homes magazine in the UK).

Twice winner of the Best Private Rental in Rio in the LUX Awards.

The double height layout means there are areas to share and areas for privacy.
The main living and dining spaces feature a balcony overlooking the treeline and streets below along with the fully equipped kitchen and both a double bedroom and a smaller en-suite single bedroom.
The upper floor features the large en-suite master bedroom and dressing area along with a private sitting room off of the main terrace. Equipped with a jacuzzi and dining table for four, this is the spot for stunning views of the famous Mt. .Corcovado’s Christ the Redeemer.

SPECIAL FEATURES:- include 24 hr. concierge and security,complimentary loan of local mobile phone, superfast Wifi throughout,split air units throughout, espresso coffee Machine with capsules,2 LCD HD TVs with cable and multi-region DVD player/ library, curated art collection,welcome bouquet of tropical flowers,complimentary Granado soaps,free parking for 2 cars,washing machine and separate dryer and CD player with iPod docking station.

The interiors are a fun and colorful mix of elements and period design creating a distinctively Brazilian character. The apartment is even located in the same street as former resident ,the legendary “The Girl from Ipanema” composer Antonio Carlos Jobim.Just some of the many artists represented include Aoleo,Oscar Niemeyer,Carlos Sena,Chico Fernandes and Andy Warhol.Furnishings includes work by Eileen Gray, Florence Broadhurst,Sergio Rodrigues,Vivienne Westwood and Giuseppe Scapinelli.

Situated in a calm tree lined residential street referred to by locals as the “noble” area of Ipanema, you are ideally placed just adjacent to Rua Vinicius de Morais in .the safest part of the city. Just four blocks from the beach and a couple of blocks from the Lagoa and the main thoroughfare, this is the very best of Ipanema. You will love the convenience of being directly parallel and just 350 meters (5 minute walk) to Post 9 on the beach,generally regarded as the absolute apex of Carioca beach culture.

The pulsing beat and joie de vivre of overlapping cultures is the charm of Rio, from the vibrant Copacabana on the south side and the twisting density of the favelas, to the dizzying action of downtown and the fashionable coastal beaches,the vibrant rhythms and diversity of the city are captivating. Surrounded by tropical rainforest with the iconic Sugarloaf monolith and Mt. Corcovado’s Christ the Redeemer overlooking the city, this world famous town is everything and more.

Extra Maid Service: Extra maid service is available.A day session(4/5 hours) costs R150.A mini session lasting approx. 2 hours is available for R90.Please make sure you book these,if required, at the time of booking as they can be difficult to arrange last minute.Their duties can also cover ironing,food shopping and child minding.An English speaking babysitter of 20 years experience dealing with 3 months to 8 years is available for R30 per hour,plus taxi fare if required to stay after midnight.

Airport pick up service.: we are happy to provide you with a very reliable named driver in a new model, air conditioned saloon car for R140 .He will wait for you at arrivals with a placard bearing your name. I strongly recommend you take advantage of this offer as it helps my management to co-ordinate your smooth arrival at the apartment.It also assures you of a stress free arrival! Payment is direct to the driver.A van with an 8 seat capacity plus luggage is also possible for R180.Great rates are also available for local car tours or trips further afield to Parity or Buzios,just ask!

Sleeps 5 in conventional beds.There is a sofa bench/bed in the 2nd living area that can be utilized as a single bed and 2 spare single futon mattresses that can be placed anywhere.If you are willing to be flexible in your sleeping arrangements up to 6 individuals can be comfortably accommodated.

The building has 24hr front of house doorman security,all public areas are subject to surveillance cameras and the building is fully gated.You have a personal electronic safe in the master bedroom.

IMPORTANT NOTE: This is a residential family building, not an apartment hotel.This is strictly NOT the environment for sexual tourism.Thank you for your understanding.

Finally this unique property is suffused with the natural scenic grandeur of Rio.Being a penthouse also means the apt. is flooded with light (many Rio apts. can be dark due to so many tall buildings facing each other).

Car: Not Necessary

Positioned in a calm,residential street canopied with tropical trees adorned with orchids, this is referred to by locals as the 'noble' area of Ipanema. Being to the left of Rua Vinicius de Morais this is seen to be the safest part of Ipanema, not being in the 'shadow' of any favela.Known as the 'Beverly Hills of Rio' due to the many telenovela stars who live here. Tom Jobim wrote the classic 'The Girl From Ipanema' song while living in this street in 1962(a plaque commemorates this at no.107). You are exactly parallel to and just 4 blocks from the legendary Post 9 on the beach. 2 blocks from the exciting shopping opportunities on the main thoroughfare of Rua Visc. de Piraja, and just 3 blocks from the Lagoa. Although taxis are plentiful and inexpensive, being so well located means you can walk to all the local culinary,cultural and nightlife attractions Ipanema is so famous for.You are assigned 2 parking spaces within the building which is useful if you hire a car or have Brazilian friends visiting.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: Very widely traveled.Brought up in the Far East and Australia,am now mostly based in the UK. My design work has been featured in media world wide. Currently I have on offer 2 penthouses in London's uber fashionable Shoreditch and Hoxton.Also a penthouse in Rio's beach haven of Ipanema,my personal favourite! I am,together with my staff,100% committed to providing you with the best travel experience possible.

Why the Owner Chose Ipanema, Rio de Janeiro - State of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil:
Ipanema is almost like a small kingdom set apart.The timeless life style associated with such easy access to such an extraordinary beach is very seductive.Now safer than ever,quite simply Ipanema is in a class of it's own.It's where Brazil looks for new trends and is a show place for the nation.It is classic,eternal Rio and the energy is palpable.It is the Rio of your dreams! Rio (a city that,even within Brazil, is the most 'Brazilian' of cities) is also a very culturally rich society with a strong theater tradition,great modern artists,the center of the telenovela and media industries,an extraordinary and diverse musical heritage and a vigorous intellectual history involving great writers and architects.I

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
Space, and a tremendous feeling of privacy floating above Ipanema in your own private world. Apart from great style,I think to have the rare combination of 2 entirely different outdoor spaces on separate floors together with contrasting and amazing views, coupled with the location so close to Posto 9 on the beach.All this and being a penthouse awash with natural light allows for an ambiance that is truly special!!
