“Wow, glamoureous penthouse and top location!”

I speak french so I will do my best to write in english.
Stayed there for 6 nights. After reservation, Alastair the owner sent emails about what to do in Rio, what not to do and how to use appliances in his penthouse. Thanks to him because he told me in time that we would need a Visa to come to Rio!! We are Canadians. When we arrived, we met the charmant owner Alastair who was staying there the week before, Ellie the manager and Alveis the doorman. Those 3 peoples where more than welcoming! So kind, respectful, and honest. They doing their best to make you feel happy. More than our expectations. Very nice humain beings!
The penthouse is wonderful. We felt at home. Warm and glamoureous atmosphere! Wonderful decoration.Wow! One cool terrasse and one great balcony. All included. Real flowers everywhere.
Top location in Ipanema and situated in one of the best and beautiful residential street. Felt secure. Close to the beach, lagoon, restaurants, stores, metro, taxis.. The penthouse is beside a school. We had great time watching children playing soccer
For the same price of an hotel room beachfront with NO balcony, since we were 2 friends sharing the condo, we got all this We recommend this place without any hesitation.

“Perfect Ipanema”
Reviewed 6 November 2014 for a stay in October 2014

We were in Rio for five nights in October and immediately knew we had picked the right place when we arrived at the apartment.
We were able to arrange airport pickup through Alastair the owner and were greeted on arrival by Ellie the apartment manger who showed us around and even recommended a tour company to use for visiting Christ the Redeemer.
The apartment is very stylishly decorated and has every conceivable convenience you could need. There’s massive amounts of space and you are spoilt with two balconies with views of Christ the Redeemer statue. Make sure to try out the jacuzzi on the rooftop terrace!
There is a decent selection of DVDs in the master bedroom if you fancy a night in and also a collection of books. Good powerful showers and comfortable beds. There’ even a washing machine and dryer.
Ellie had a bottle of water cooling in the fridge and there was tea and coffee in the cupboard which was very welcome on our first morning.
The penthouse is located on a residential street but literally around the surrounding streets there are a host of great restaurants to choose from and there’s a supermarket under fifteen minutes away if you fancy cooking for yourself.
Three blocks away is Ipanema beach which is absolutely stunning and a nicer beach to Copacabana. There’s a metro station about fifteen minutes away which can get you into Centro to explore the older part of the city which I would recommend.
From the very first time I contacted Alaister he was exceptionally helpful and sent through an insiders guide to Rio. Ellie left a mobile with us so we could contact her easily if we needed to and she also arranged a return transfer to the airport.
If you are looking for somewhere special in a great location this is where you need to book!

Top place in a great part of the city. Spacious apartment with nice views and decent shops/bars/restaurants all close by. Very impressed with both the help and communication from the owner (Alistair) and the support of the apartment manager Ellie! Hope to return one day!
