Small space but big enough if you are on the go for one or two people. Everything was supplied as promised. Even the ride from Paulo to and from the airport. This is a huge city and getting comfortable right off with Linda's help when I arrived was super helpful. Close to everything you want the tourist zones. Felt safe and I was alone. Tours are close or will pick you up from this location and taxicabs are outside the door. Highly recommend.

“Charming Studio in Ipanema”
Reviewed 15 February 2016 for a stay in February 2016

This was our 2nd time in Rio and at the same Studio. Linda is a nicest person you can ever meet as a host and owner. She makes you feel welcome and is very attentive to your needs. She will supply you with all the information you need to get around in Rio. The Studio is only a short block to the beach and very convenient to the grocery store, Bus stop and Metro station. I highly recommend this studio for a safe and fun stay in RIO.

I'm delighted you chose my studio a second time! What a lovely endorsement. It was truly a pleasure to be your hostess, and share Rio with you. Come back soon.

“Snatch this apartment if you can!Linda was the best host ever! Apartment is causy but is at a fantastic location!”

The apartment is ideally located, less than 5 min walk from Ipanema beach (post 8), supermarkets and metro station. Very safe, and even though it may not be considered rather intimate for two (don't expect lots of room) but has everything you need, is well air conditioned and Linda is right next door and she is ever so helpful with tips on where to go and what to do. She was just a brilliant host, organised the pick up from the airport, even giving me a nice tour upon my arrival and ever so considerate. This was my first visit to Rio and she made my stay ever more especial. If you are considering visiting Rio, this is the place to stay, don't even think twice, or consider any other place (unless you are after the ocean view).

“ReallyWell located little studio ... close to everything”
Reviewed 25 January 2015 for a stay in November 2014

Very helpful and kind owner... Clean little studio very close to everything... Fantastic area of Rio to stay in. Only drawback is windows are not clear glass and face indoor light well which can feel claustrophobic after three weeks ... but the location is superb and I spent most of the time I was there, out.

“Great experience, great apartment!”
Reviewed 24 January 2015 for a stay in January 2015

We just loved staying in this apartment! We were right at the beach, one block away from the subway station, and really close to Copacabana. On the other hand, Linda was really nice to us and helped us out when we needed a hand :)
100% recommended, we are totally coming back, hopefully soon!

“Incredible studio with very helpful/friendly owner”
Reviewed 23 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014

My wife and I stayed in these accommodations for the world cup and it was absolutely fantastic. The studio itself is cozy, but if you're in Rio and staying inside your room all day - you're doing it wrong. The location is second to none - one block from the metro, beach, good eats, and less than a $20 (US) cab ride to just about anywhere you want to go (Christ the Redeemer, Sugarloaf Mountain, Copacabana). We found there was sufficient space for luggage storage and everything we needed. There is a stove and facilities for cooking, but we did not use them whatsoever. The airconditioner was very effective and kept us cool at night so that should not be an issue. The value for this place was incredible - even during the world cup. The neighborhood felt relatively safe. There are several doormen that watch the street and there is a street guard that patrols regularly for all of the apartments on the block. Finally, the owner is wonderful and very helpful. She gave us a tour upon arrival and showed us her favorite spots and how to get around. I strongly recommend this place to anyone staying in Rio. I know I will be personally recommending it to friends who want to make a trip.
