The House Rules

Rio is a place of freedom where people come to enjoy themselves, so I encourage you to have as much fun as possible. However, there are a few things I ask:
1. When nobody is in the apartment, please turn off the lights and especially the air conditioning, to conserve electricity and save the planet.
2. The front door/gate locks automatically when you close it so it is not necessary to "double lock" it when entering or exiting.
3. Please respect the other guests.

Great place, but unfortunately not living up to the standard for this price. Clearly overpriced, as you do not get what you pay for; Don’t expect things to be in a decent condition and it’s not clean. However, amazing people in the house and a stunning view. Impeccable surroundin…

Response from Jake:
Sjur entered the apartment and after 5 weeks without a single complaint he sent me a message saying he loved the place and wanted to extend his stay through Carnaval. I told him he was welcome to stay but that the rates go up a bit during the very busy Carnaval period. This clearly irritated Sjur and he told me that in Norway, where he's from, all apartments are expected to be "flawless" and that this one had a scratch on the closet door and a couple of other little things. And then he left this mixed review for the apartment because I said I couldn't give him the price he wanted to extend for 6 more weeks. Anyhow, I wish Sjur all the best back in Norway.

Jake is totally awesome, super laid back, extremely genuine and gives off a great vibe. The apartment is compact but has every necessity needed for a comfortable stay. The view is impeccable and everything is just a 10minute walk away, ie beach, shopping, fresh young coconut…

Mix feelings. The location is superb. The owner is really friendly and extremely helpful. The actual apartment is definitely spartan (thinks like the lack of a simple table lamp are really puzzling), but after all it is not a hotel and it's quite affordable, by Rio (mad) standard…

Tuve una muy buena experience en los deptos de Jake. El sitio tiene una excelente vista y esta cerca de Leblon e Ipanema. El edificio es viejo y necesita reciclarse pronto, no es aconsejable para la gente que le gustan quedarse en lugares nuevos, esto es bien rustico. Al comienzo…
