Alvaro was a great host. Not only did he make sure we were comfortable at his apartment but gave us great tips for eating out, shopping nearby & entertainment. Communication was excellent before, during after stay. Owner was willing to answer promptly all of our questions. Apartment is well located in a very nice quiet residential neighborhood close to the beach, supermarkets, restaurants and parks. Would come back without hesitation.

Me, my husband and our 6-month old baby stayed at Alvaro's place for four nights in May, 2017. The place was extremely convenient within blocks aways from Copacabana and Ipanema Beach. Very safe neighborhood with a more than welcoming 24 hour doorman. The neighborhood has supermarkets, drugstores and local bakeries with yummy coffee and pastries within walking distance. We couldn't be happier with the location!! Alvaro was a great host. He was there to welcome us and show us around. He gave us tips and was always available via text message. The apartment is very spacious and the terrace is amazing. The towels and linens could be upgraded (they felt old and dirty), the AC filter feels like it needs to be replaced and the cleaning overall could be better. We did had a small bug issue in the bathroom. You can tell the apartment is very old by the smell and furniture but that's normal for that area. Most building in Rio are very old. Other than that everything was amazing and we enjoyed our stay very much!!!

Thank you very much for your consideration. We had many rainy days, which is not normal in the city at this time and the humidity was very large and with this, little time to reduce the effect of humidity. As we have the pool and the exclusive balcony of the house, we always rely on the sun to warm and dry the rooms. Well, the rainy season has come before and it's gone. In our planning, June is the time for changing bed and bath linens as well as air conditioning filters. These operations are always performed at this station. When we have small children in the apartment, we safely remove the insect control devices from the area and transfer to a higher position. Best regards, Alvaro

The location of Alvaro's apt is excellent, you can walk either to Copacabana or Ipanema. He was kind enough to let us check in very early :-)

We loved everything about Alvaro's apartment. From the very beginning Alvaro was a great host. He was extremely helpful and kind at all times. The apartment is very well located, you can easily access Copacabana beach or Ipanema if you walk four blocks. The neighbourhood as well as the building are very safe. The apartment looks exactly as the pictures describe it. The swimming pool in the patio is a great asset! The beds are really comfortable , the kitchen is well equiped, the air conditing allows the guests to have a good night sleep and the shower in the main bathroom is awesome! And there are two other bathrooms which are really handy. Next time we go to Rio we will definitely stay at Alvaro's once again.

We had a very nice stay at Alvaro's place! The apartment is spacious, very secured and perfectly located between Copacabana and Ipanema! It was very hot in Rio these days so we went to the beaches early in the morning and stayed in the little pool which was often in the shadow of the neighbouring flats. Our 2 years old daughter loved this pool. There is a supermarket around the corner and very nice restaurants in the neighbourhood. (we can recommend 'Astron' and 'Broth'.) On our checkout day we could stay longer because we had a flight in the evening, which was a very nice gesture of Alvaro. The only comment we can think of was the airconditioning that is a little bit noisy. But leaving them off these hot days was not an option so we got used to the snoring chillers. But we strongly recommend staying at this apartment!

This apartment is perhaps the most charming of any in Rio. Perfectly situated between Copacabana and Ipanema, you are just minutes from either beach. There are 3 grocery stores within 5 blocks, and the building is secure. And of course...the pool. Alvaro is an excellent host - you will not regret this stay!

We had a fantastic time staying in Alvaro's apartment. The best things were 1. The location - short walk down the street to Copacabana in one direction and in the other direction to Ipanema 2. The subway is only a short walk away, and the bus stop (e.g to Christ the Redeemer) is literally just around the corner. 3. The supermarket is just a few steps away. It is well stocked with friendly staff. 4. The 24 hour security made us feel very safe 5. The neighbourhood is very friendly and seems very safe 6. The pool and courtyard - while the pool is fairly small, it is wonderful to have your own private pool to cool off in and relax in your private courtyard. 7. Alvaro is a great host - he stayed up late to welcome us at the door even though our plane had been delayed, he answered all our questions and gave us some great suggestions, and made us feel very welcome.
