About Maggie Labre

I'm a technical writer/researcher in the public health field. My brother, Paulo, lives in Rio and manages the apartment. He lives next door with our mom.

Why Maggie Labre chose Ipanema

Our grandmother owned a house at this location when Ipanema was mostly sand. She sold the land to developers in exchange for apartments in the building--which is why the building is named after us. :-) I grew up here. Paulo is a neat freak--so the unit is always super-clean!

What makes this apartment unique

You can't beat this location. Walk to Ipanema beach, supermarkets, drugstores, banks, restaurants, bars--everything. Subway entrance is across from the building. Oh, and Paulo speaks English too.

Fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was just what I needed. The location is fantastic: just steps from the metro, close to nearby restaurants in trendy parts of Ipanema yet quiet, and blocks from the beach. The owners/managers were great at getting back to me quickly, and very professional, and Paulo, one of the owners, lives in the same building, speaks English, and was always super-helpful. I'd definitely stay there again.

Great Location in Ipanema; Not Ideal in the Summertime

  • 3 of 5

This property was in a great location, very close to Ipanema Beach, easy walking distance to Copacabana Beach, shopping, restaurants, markets, the Hippie Fair. The apartment building was well kept and the bellmen were courteous. The property manager as well was very helpful and worked to make our stay a positive one. The apartment itself was basic, but clean and well equipped. Except for the air conditioning. While the A/C units in each of the two bedrooms were sufficient to allow us to sleep comfortably, the lack of cooling in the rest of the apartment made the living room and kitchen unbearably hot (daily outside temperatures were around 38 and 40 degrees Celsius), even with ceiling and floor fans going. While the apartment can technically sleep six people, during summer months it can really only accommodate four, since it is too hot for anyone to sleep on the futon bed in the living room or in the servant's quarters. Would recommend this apartment outside of the hottest summer months.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for taking the time to send us your feedback. I am sorry that your stay was uncomfortable due to the summer heat. This has not been an issue identified by previous guests, but your stay was longer and included days of record-breaking heat. We will definitely keep this concern in mind when booking future rentals in the summer season, particularly if they involve larger parties, in order to make sure that the apartment will meet their needs. Thanks again for staying with us and submitting your review.
