My place is a cozy penthouse in the heart of Ipanema, next to the square Nossa Senhora da Paz, only 2 blocks away from the beach, surrounded by many shops and restaurants. Popular and lively streets like Vinicius de Morais and Farme de Amoedo are just around the corner.
Newly renovated, you’ll love the place because of the ambiance, the terrace and the amazing view and the safe neighborhood. The apartment is ideal for couples, friends, business travelers and families. Enjoy your stay!!

Q: Is the apartment available for long term lease (from 12 to 30 months)?
A: Yes, if requests fit the following criteria:
- The apartment is required in around 6 months from the initial request, to avoid overlaps with existing reservations

Check-in is at 3pm, and check-out is at 11am. Arriving slightly earlier, or want that extra hour to sleep? Should be fine, but please check with us first.

Whilst we do a thorough professional clean between each guest stay, we kindly ask that prior to leaving, you clean and put away any dishes or kitchenware used and put any dirty towels in the service area. It helps us get through our cleaning process quicker and allows us to keep cleaning costs down for you and future guests.

To ensure we keep the floorboards squeaky clean for our guests’ enjoyment, we would appreciate if you could abide by a no shoes policy inside our home.

We kindly ask guests staying longer than a week to carry out a professional cleaning during the stay. We can recommend a very good and reliable cleaning lady.

We understand that accidents happen. But we do ask that you please let us know when they do. Chances are we can fix them as effortlessly as possible which also means better chances of having your full security deposit returned too.

If you’re coming to Rio to party you’ve picked a great city to do so. Unfortunately, just not at our place. Though we’re sure it won’t come to it, serious complaints of unruly behavior will unfortunately result in you being asked to leave. Not good for you. Not good for us.

We have a no smoking policy, although you are welcome to smoke in the terrace.

Number of guests must be indicated in the booking request. Adding more guests after the booking will be allowed only if agreement is reached with us.

Guest will be given two sets of keys at check-in. If one or more of these sets is stolen/missing/lost, we must be notified immediately. For security reasons, door locks will have to be changed, as well as 5 new sets of keys (2 for the guests, 1 for housekeeper, 2 for us). A 200 US$ fee from security deposit will apply to cover the charges.

Great place! Less than 5 mins walk to Ipanema beach and very close to Copacabana as well. Lots of nice places to eat and drink nearby, there are taxis everywhere and the metro is really close by too. The views from the apartment are wonderful. And there is an outdoor deck to sit down and enjoy the sun. We really enjoyed our stay, Louise is a great host :)

Louise's apartment is a gem. I lived in Rio for two years and know how difficult it is to find a place in either Leblon or Ipanema that isn't old and dark. I could see right away that Louise takes very good care of her place - it's impeccably clean, everything works beautifully, big windows everywhere, with a lovely outside area (where we spent lazy nights drinking cold beer). The fridge was stocked with beer and water when we arrived. Louise is very friendly, which made us feel immediately at ease. This was my partner's first time in Brazil and I wanted to make sure that he would feel comfortable and at home. I could not recommend enough this apartment.

Louise's apartment is exactly as show in the pictures and described. There is a great view of Christ Redeemer from the living/dining room and a nice outdoor space with entrances from the living/dining room and both bedrooms. It is located in Ipanema - two blocks from the beach - fantastic location to enjoy Ipanema!

Louise was an amazing host, great to communicate with and super helpful during checkin and check out. Apartment is exactly as described, close to the beach, stores and restaurants - yet secluded enough to have a quiet night in and enjoy the amazing views from the balcony. I'd recommend Louise as a host to anyone.

Stay here! The apartment is spacious, pleasant and very well equipped. The view is unbeatable. You will experience no street noise whatsoever and Louise is very attentive. You will also be close to so much in the Zona Sul. We visit Rio every couple of years, and this has been one of the best places we have stayed in.

Clean, crisp, comfortable - we loved our stay here! Metro down the street and everything wonderful about Rio is easily accessible. Beds are very firm if you aren't used to that. Louise was the perfect host. Can't wait to return.
