  • Samba Suite and Jeff's team is the best deal and location in Rio de Janeiro.

    "Steve, Orlando, Florida We stayed, 9/2 to 9/12 10-nights. We wish to thank you for allowing us to stay in your beautiful 2nd level apartment. Everything went smoothly, I contacted the owner (Jeff) our conversation helped greatly in better understanding the unit. He was helpful, informative and gave us good travel advice. The apartment was fantastic, you truly paid attention to the details when remodeling this 2-bedroom Samba Suite. The modern, contemporary design of the unit was like being in a nice Hard Rock Hotel suite. The vivid colors, artwork, outside patio and extensive lighting, made the place feel like we were in a modern chic condo. We we're pleasantly surprised how quiet the area was inside and out. I will say the unit is better suited for adults verses young children because of the artwork and higher quality furnishings. The apartment is in an excellent location, right in the middle of the 3 best known beach tourist areas. A 5-minute walk to Ipanema beach and about 15-minutes to Copacabana, 1-block from a primary Metro station. They have doormen services 24hrs. There's a full kitchen with high end appliances, cookware, dishwasher, washer/dryer and other furnishings. All 3 air-conditioners work extremely well, they were quiet and easy to control. The split bedroom floor plan helped, each bedroom had a bathroom. The beds were comfortable and semi-soft, so we slept well. The unit had both types of electrical outlet plugs for Brazilian and/or US usage. We used the electrical water filter daily to drink water, it was refreshing, safe and cool. The towels were soft and luxurious, even having the benefit of black and white towels (to help against staining). There's 3 large flat screen TV's, all had cable/satellite, about 1/4 of the channels were in English, many in HD. The free Wifi worked well. We used the provided international telephone that had free long distance to over 60 countries. This made it easy to contact family and friends during our trip. A nice free benefit that most hotels and other rentals don't have. All of our communications with the owner Jeff, Petra/Diana was pleasant and helpful, they made it easy for us to enjoy our stay. They worked with our tough schedule having a flight arriving early 8:30am and a 8:15pm departure; we were able to use the apartment early and late till 5pm on our departure. After staying for 10-days, we found Rio and the surrounding area to be very comfortable and much safer than what we heard."

  • Great Luxury Penthouse in Ideal Copacabana Location!

    "Our family of 5 just spent 8 nights at this luxury penthouse for the week of Christmas. The pictures on the VRBO website are very accurate, and you will have a hard time finding more luxurious and safe accommodations in the heart of Copacabana right next to the beach and just 2 blocks from the Copacabana Palace hotel. The staff was great and immediately responded to every inquiry we had. The manager, Vincent, was particularly helpful with advice on restaurants and activities, and he checked in on us every day to make sure we were comfortable and that everything was going well. The layout of the apartment is quite nice, and with only 5 of us in the apartment we had plenty of room to ourselves. The place can accommodate many more, maybe 10 people. But I chose this penthouse apartment for our family because it had all the items that were important to me: location, elevator, rooftop pool, amazing views, large bedrooms, plenty of bathrooms...each bedroom has its own bathroom, and very nice furnishings. I should point out, however, that only the bedrooms are air conditioned. So on hot days, it was difficult to enjoy the living room and dining rooms. That's too bad. For a place this nice, the entire apartment should be air conditioned. But all the common areas have huge sliding windows to allow cross breezes, and there are curtains to block out the sun to help cool things down. This is the only negative comment I can make about an otherwise spectacular property. Even so, I would stay here again and I would highly recommend it to anyone who values luxury and style."
