Great check-in experience100% of recent guests gave this home’s check-in process a 5-star rating.
DryerThis is one of few homes in this area that has this feature.

Nice tasteful small bedroom, designed by French architect. Own bath, small living room, own part of veranda. It is basically your own apartment, but actually an independent subdivision of my 3 bedroom apartment. It has small fridge and microwave, but no own kitchen. You can unlock/open a door to use our kitchen. Paranoid safety, keys cannot be copied by prior tenants, excellent internet with backup second provider. Maid service 1-3 times per week.

The apartment was perfect for my stay in Rio. It's in a great location, close to Ipanema and Copacabana beaches. The room was a good size and very clean, and the WiFi and shower are much better than other places I've stayed at in Rio. Thank you Yara and Mario!

The penthouse apartment is a great spot. Well located and within reach to metro station, Ipanema, and 2 minutes from Copacabana beach. Yara, the roommate, was incredibly friendly and helpful with anything I needed. Would 100% recommend. The patio really makes a difference.
