Greatest feature about the apartment is the location a block away from Ipanema Beach. Also surrounded by restaurants and shops. Very spacious interior with great amount of natural light on both floors. Full kitchen, large bathroom, and a bedroom that could be arranged into 2 sleeping areas. Candida's daughter Ju received us and the check-in was smooth, made sure we had everything we needed and was flexible with our late check out. Thank you! I stayed in this apartment during Carnaval 2017 and it was a perfect midpoint between all of the festivities. Recommend this apartment to anyone staying in Ipanema.

I loved staying at Candida's place! Her family was so welcoming and helpful, and the location was perfect. We had a great time exploring the beach and the neighborhood. I would go back tomorrow if I could

Candida's place was perfect. The location couldn't be better - it's just one block from the beach and has amazing restaurants all around it, plus it's very easy to get anywhere else in the city either by public transport or a super cheap Uber. It's on a street with huge bland apartment buildings, but her place is down a very cute cobble stone alley lined with the cutest houses covered with plants and flowers. The place itself was wonderful - it's cool and airy with fans in every room so we barely even needed the AC. And it's very charming! So many rio apartments have no style or homeyness to them, but hers was unique and felt very welcoming. Finally, Candida was the sweetest. She was very attentive to our needs yet not at all in our hair when we wanted space. It's the perfect place to stay!

This is a cozy and spacious 1 BR town house with 2 stories. Very spacious, location can't be better (in Ipanema, one block away from the beach and restaurants in bar all around). It is also located in a private small street which makes it quiet once you're in the house. Candida and her family are extremely helpful and very nice and welcoming.

Best location. Ipanema is very safety and comfortable area in Rio. Second line from the beach - one block from the beach, 3 minutes walk. I have stayed here in New Year Eve, so it is hard to tell about price/value, but the price is similar for hotels. I traveled with friend, the owner provided us with separate bed. Also give us a Christmas cake ) Excellent communication, the owner provided us with all necessary information about Rio. I'll gladly stay here next time.

Candida was just wonderful and could not be more helpful. Would highly recommend that you stay here, it was perfect. We had a great introduction to the place so that we knew where everything was and how it worked. The property is in an absolutely fantastic location, with anything that you could need, whilst here, nearby. The property was so well equipped- lots of towels etc. and a kitchen that you could cook anything in, if you wanted. but, there are so many places to eat nearby that we didn't. Comfortable living area, dining and bedroom. The place was really very clean and so quiet- we slept so well. Couldn't recommend enough.

Amazing stay: it's just 2min walk to the Ipanema beach, and 2 minutes walk to the main street of Ipanema. The house itself is in a residential side street with it's own gate in the front of the street, so it feels save. The house has 2 floors, which i really like, it really felt like coming home while being on holidays. The wifi is not so reliable / not working all the time.
