We saw the The FIFA Fan Fest, Rolling Stones concert, Pope Francis, Lenny Kravitz, and the annual New Year’s Eve fireworks from our window.

    Apartment exceeded my expectation. Beautiful views, nicely furnished, and wonderful location. John was an awesome host informative, friendly and accessible. He helped arrange transportation. We arrived later then anticipated due to multiple flight delay. John met us at the apartment and helped us settle. The apartment was wonderful and made our trip to Rio a great vacation for our family of 7. We cannot thank job enough. 22 August 2017 - 17:32:00

    This apartment has been my go to place every time I visit there with my daughter and husband. It's spacious and you cannot beat the location of being right in front of the beach, and cost a say less than a hotel ! The owner/hosts are great people. Enjoy your stay! 21 April 2016 - 02:21:59

    I stayed at this beautiful apartment with my family and were extremely happy with the location, the amazing views over Copacabana beach and the distribution of the apartment. The place was very clean and comfortable. We were greeted by someone who showed us around and also organized some sightseeing excursions for us. The owner was great, very responsive and left us all kind of welcoming goods at the apartment. This is a perfect place to visit Rio, walking distance to the beach and most other places. The building was secure, with a security guard 24/7. I would highly recommend this apartment and can't wait to come back! 21 April 2016 - 13:36:58
  4. What a wonderful vacation experience!!! This apartment was awesome! Speculator ocean views from several rooms. The apartment was clean and spacious perfect for our family. Very safe location directly across from Copacabana beach. Very centrally located. Excellent restaurants choices steps from the front door. Definitely worth the price!!! Owner was very responsive, responding to emails and questions and was easy to communication with. He provided many site-seeing, travel, restaurant suggestions/recommendations and really help us to schedule and organize the trip as well as a provided a owners guide book in the apartment that we could refer to. First time using vbro.. Have always used hotels but after this experience I will look to vbro. 23 April 2016 - 17:55:30
  5. What an awesome experience. My expectations were exceeded and John, the host, set a high benchmark. All I wanted to experience in Rio was right outside John's doorstep. Morning walks on white sand beaches made all the difference for me. The beachside was scattered with restaurants, kiosks, and the rhythms of Rio. John created an amazing guide which covered his favorite local restaurants and activities that only a local would know. I look forward to coming back. If you ever wanted to experience Rio, John's place is clean, has updated amenities, and was our home away from home. Stan 11 May 2016 - 21:50:33
  6. Johns apartment has a fantastic view of the entire Copacabana beach and it is an easy walk across the street. It is actually on the border of the neighborhood Leme, which is quieter and calmer stretch of the Copacabana beach. There were excellent restaurants nearby and really convenient to the market, and other local businesses. Major attractions were all a short distance away. John has an excellent guide with a lot of good tips and hints on where to eat and go. His friendly and knowledgeable assistant Charlotte met us at the apartment and gave us a quick tour of the apartment and the local area. Both of them were excellent hosts and always available when we had questions. We got there late in the evening and they had thoughtfully left fruits and cold cuts for a morning breakfast. The apartment was nice, clean, and very neatly decorated. It was exactly like the photos. We cannot say enough about the apartment and highly recommend it! 28 May 2016 - 15:48:09
