    wow we had an amazing time in Rio. The condo pics don't do justice to actually being in that place , it has an open concept and windows galour . It felt like you were in your own home . John the owner had arranged for a maid that came everyday and cooked delicious breakfast for us,did laundry and ironed. It felt wonerful for a little cost we were pampered. We were nine of us five young adults two grandmas and us . 2 blocks away from Copocabana's beautiful beaches and a building with 24 hour doorman who was always smiling.We were in heaven. We felt very welcomed and Doni the caretaker was extremely friendly and yet only a phone call away .We all had fun vacation . I can never go back to Rio if we can't have this gorgeous apartment.Four spacious bedrooms with four full bathrooms . It felt like home and felt like no other vacation rental we have ever stayed at.Abrigada like the Brazilians would say for thankyou.Cheers!! We highly recommend this place to any one willing to be comfortable. 10 January 2010 - 03:05:08

    This is a brilliant apartment right in the heart of Copacabana. In a safe spot, the apartment is spacious and very comfortable for 8 people. it is suitable for guests with mobility difficulties. The 24 hour door staff and Adonis, the apartment manager are brilliant! Very attentive, organised all our wheelchair accessible transport around Rio and answered any queries without delay. In fact, from our initial contact with John, right through to the end of the holiday, the service and support and advice provided has been outstanding. In summary, top accommodation and top notch support. I would highly recommend this apartment! 24 September 2016 - 14:21:42

    I had a perfect vacation in Rio. Apartment is exactly as described. Top of the line furnishings and amenities. Owner was extremely helpful in making arrangements and answered any and all questions that I had. Apartment is in an ideal location for people who want to enjoy Copacabana and Ipanema areas. Apartment was very safe and very clean. Well worth consideration if you need an apartment in Rio! 30 November 2008 - 04:57:13

    As an employee at a major airline, I have travelled around the world and have stayed in many short term rental suites and find they are all quite sterile and unwelcoming. I knew I'd be flying in and out of Rio for a few weeks so I rented this condo while I was in town. The owner was easy to get a hold of and very friendly. When I arrived I couldnt have been more pleased! The apartment was immaculate and in such a great location. The quality of the furniture, art, linens and attention to detail are unheard of in a vacation rental. I highly recommend this rental to families, couples or a group of people looking to vacation in an exotic location! You will not be disappointed. 01 December 2008 - 22:46:24

    This condo is amazing! It is very spacious, comfortable and has absolutely everything you need. We did allot of cooking and were very impressed with the quality of the kitchen supplies. It was perfect for our family. It's centrally located, close to the beaches, restaurants, grocery stores, shopping, and subway. I would highly recommend staying here! 02 December 2010 - 15:52:41

    The location is tucked away and just around the corner from everything. Open the door, and feel like you lucked out. The pictures don't do it justice. See and do as much as you want, then come back, unwind, or recharge. It's an open living space, but has bedrooms you can retreat to. Not good beds, but great ones you look for labels on. Their drivers give insider know-how to getting around, and recommending your way to a better time. It's not a hotel, it's a home in Rio with the convenience all around you. 30 November 2010 - 05:44:14

    I am a New York based frequent traveler to Brazil, and often go to Sao Paulo for business and Rio for pleasure. (Although the Rio economy is picking up substantially due to the World Cup, Olympics and offshore oil discoveries.) I met the owners of the flat four years ago and they suggested I rent from them. Since then I have always stayed at the flat and consider it my home away from home in Rio. The flat is centrally located at the end of Copecabana and has wonderful amenities. The building has friendly doormen. Ipanema beach is a ten minute walk, Copecabana a stonesthrow. The bedrooms are pristine quiet and comfortable. The living space is expansive allowing ample opportunity for socializing. The internet always works well, which I find can be elusive in Brazil at times. The kitchen is magnificent, a testament to the owner's restaurant experience in the US. I brought my entire family here last year for a week's vacation and it was one of our favorite trips ever. The owners are very conscientious and easy to work with. 12 January 2011 - 11:39:35

    The owner of this fine apartment described it very well and was extremely helpful in making the rental process as smooth as possible. The apartment is very well apointed and to say the accomodation is comfortable would be an understatement. Would recommend without hesitation. 05 October 2011 - 21:48:28

    We - a family of 6 - had a very good stay in the condo in October 2011. The condo is spacious and very well equipped. The rental process was very smooth and both our arrival and departure went very well with good help from the ownerand the condo manager. The pictures of the condo, as presented on the website are very accurate, and the condo is very well maintained and clean. We will recommend the condo anytime 14 November 2011 - 13:35:34

    Sou Medica moro em Minas Gerais. Vou ao Rio de Janeiro 3 a 4 vezes ao ano para convenes medicas ou frias. Gosto de viajar com meu marido e meu filho me sentindo mais confortvel em um apartamento do que em um hotel. Recomendo este apartamento devido ao local proximo as praias e pontos tursticos alem de ser super bem equipado e decorado. Os propietrios so super gentis e atenciosos. 26 April 2012 - 20:40:03

    I stayed in this condo this past winter with some friends and we were all very satisfied and happy with everything. It was our first trip to Brazil and we really fell in love with Rio. The condo location is perfect and John the owner was very helpful. We found it a plus that the owner is American. 05 May 2012 - 21:22:46

    We loved this place. Being from Boston U.S. it was great doing business with the American owner since he lives in Boston and owns a well know Italian restaurant there.The six of us could not have found a better place to rent. Great location, beautifuly furnished, and very spacious. The owner was very helpfull with suggestions on tours and great restaurant. 28 May 2012 - 17:32:28

    Stayed for a week in October 2012. Immaculate furnishing, hardwood floors and air conditioning even though you don't need it. Everything inside is Americanized with wi-fi, cable, W/D, maid service and manager that's always a few minutes away. Other apartments just don't compare in comfort and location. Will be renting again! 31 October 2012 - 21:54:17

    First we want to say thank you for everything! For my first trip here to Rio it was one of the most amazing trips I have ever had! My co-worker from Massachusetts General Hospital told me about this amazing place here in Copacabana and I thought to get a group together for my Birthday and come see it for myself. If your looking for a paradise away from home, that is minutes away from the Rio experience! Amazing stores, safe areas to walk around, the beaches, and site seeing just outside the door of this amazing home. Working with the owner he gave me in detail of the locations of what we needed as far as food, atm, shopping and the gym. He informed us of the train system to get to downtown Rio that is a must see! We saw architecture and culture that we never knew about Rio. The beaches were one thing but everything else surrounding this place made the trip so much more! I recommend this place to anyone looking for their trip to Rio and am defiantly looking forward to working with the owner again for my next trip down! Thank you again! 15 March 2013 - 16:54:19

    Loved our stay in Rick's condo. The location was ideal- close to the beach in Copacabana and walking distance to Ipanema. Good places to eat or pick up snacks as well as grocery stores, drug stores or anything else you would need very close. A bonus was the nightly street market right down the street on the beach. We found the selection and prices of souvenirs here to be better than anywhere else we went. The apartment itself could not have been more comfortable. Although the bathroom in the front Asian bedroom was cramped, it did not hamper our feeling about our stay. Each of the four bedrooms were very roomy, the beds very comfortable and air conditioning excellent. I loved the various bedroom themes- Asian, African, Carnival, and White. The living area was very open with plenty of room for all six of us to lounge or do whatever we wanted. The large dining table was perfect for the occasional meals we had in and the small game table was ideal for those late night card games. The kitchen and laundry facilities were a welcome find. Particularly enjoyed the sign in the laundry room to keep the door closed because of marauding monkeys. Although we never saw any, the idea of monkeys invading the apartment at night was exciting. Thank you Rick for giving us the opportunity of sharing your wonderful condo while in Rio. 22 October 2013 - 17:29:53

    Thank you John. Our stay in your beautiful condo was a great experience. My family loved being so close to the beach and the neighborhood was very safe and quiet. We would be very happy to rent from you in the future. Thanks again for all your help during the rental process. 12 February 2014 - 13:34:59
    This was a fantastic condo for our group during the World Cup. The website description tells it all. Great location to all beaches, restaurants and shopping. We found the city of Rio to be very easy to get around either walking, taxis or Metro. We would like to be able to rent again during the 2016 Olympics. Thanks again. 15 August 2014 - 12:49:55

    We loved renting this condo for the second time. It has all the comforts of home and is in a great location. This visit to Rio we really enjoyed all the new museums and other new city projects underway for the upcoming olympics. Thank you John again for all your sightseeing and restaurant suggestion. 16 January 2016 - 13:32:28
  19. 7 of us - friends from NY & Brazil - rented this place to spend the last days of 2015 & new year's 2016. What a great find! The apartment is very well located, 2 blocks from the beach. Very, very spacious and well appointed - nice furniture, every appliance you might need. All linens & towels were first rate. 4 bathrooms made it all very easy for the group. A maid cleaned & did the wash every other day. What a treat! The building has 24 hours doorman, which made us feel extra safe. New Year's Eve in copacabana is something you should experience at least once in your lifetime. 2 million people celebrating on the beach, all wearing white and drinking champagne. And because we were so close to it, it was no hassle to get to & from the party. It was an unforgettable night & vacation. This is my second time renting the place and I will keep coming back! 11 February 2016 - 15:25:28

    This bright and spacious apartment will make your trip to Rio even more memorable. The pictures really don't do it justice. The apartment is only 2 blocks from Copacabana beach and a quick ride to the best spots in Ipanema and Leblon. Tons of great restaurants are nearby, but there is an awesome kitchen with everything you need to prepare a feast! The bedrooms are cozy and cool, and the living/dining area is massive, great for a group of adults or families. I would definitely rent again! 16 February 2016 - 16:56:05
