Charming studio, ideally situated on a nice tree-lined street connecting the beaches of Ipanema (2min) & Copacabana (5-6min). Well equipped, tastefully decorated, very bright & quiet, with a partial view of the sea and overlooking a garden. The building is very safe, with security cameras and porters 24h/24h. And with everything you might need within walking distance. The ideal place to enjoy the best of Rio!


The space

Located on the 7th and last floor (elevator goes up to the 6th), the studio is very bright, airy and tranquil (sounds of waves and birds singing instead of cars buzzing — and maybe you'll even have the chance to see some small monkeys hopping among the trees!..) The building is well maintained and very safe, with security cameras, and smiling and helpful porters 24hrs a day. You can also enjoy the building's lovely and peaceful green courtyard, rarely used by other residents.

Recently renovated, the flat has a small but well equipped kitchen with a 2-burner steel gas hob, fridge, microwave, small electric oven, coffee maker, kettle, toaster, juicer, cookware and all basic kitchen utensils and cutlery ; a bathroom with shower / WC / hair dryer and toiletries.
The atmosphere is cosy, tastefully decorated, with air conditioning, two ceiling fans, cable TV 32'', high speed Internet, Wi-Fi, telephone (with free calls to local landlines). Equipped with a comfortable double bed and a couch with pull-out bed, it is an ideal flat for a couple, but can accommodate up to 4 persons. Sheets and towels (all pure cotton) provided, as well as beach towels & sarongs, ironing equipment and cleaning supplies.

The neighbourhood is fantastic : a 2-minute walk gets you to the beautiful Ipanema Beach (Posto 8) on one side, 6-8 min to the most picturesque part of Copacabana Beach (Posto 6) on the other side. And the area has many transportation facilities (buses, taxis, bike rental, subway is 8 minutes far), as well as supermarkets, drugstores, laundries, banks, shops, and a large variety of cafés and restaurants.

The owners speak fluent English, French, Spanish and some Italian (besides Portuguese, of course), deal with guests directly (no agents in between!..) and try to adjust, as much as possible, guests' arrival and departure times in a flexible manner.

Let yourself be seduced by this charming and very pleasant studio, an ideal place for a great stay in Rio !

We were warmly received by Pedro when we arrived (Naruna was away). He gave us a nice tour of the building and the studio with great tips about what to do and where to eat. The studio itself exceeded our expectations - it is very clean, quiet and had everything (and more) to make our stay as comfortable as possible. The location was perfect, right between Copacabana and Ipanena, close to metro stations, supermarkets and restaurants. Naruna and Pedro were very friendly and responsive with messages, we appreciated all the little details and considerations from them . We had an amazing stay and would highly recommend to others.

I had an AMAZING time!!! Naruna and Pedro really have attention for detail, the apartment has everything you could need, like an iron, microwave, little beach backpack, umbrella, beach umbrella etc. They also made it even more welcoming with extras like providng some food, water, and juice in the kitchen to start out, lots of fresh fruit, and even chocolate!!!! :-) It is really beautiful to look out the window and see the view...and even tiny little monkeys playing in the trees down below!!!! It is very safe with a 24 hour doorman service in one of the best parts of Rio. It is literally a block from the beach and from the Fasano Hotel where the international rich & famous stay! So in addition to the unbeatable location, it is very quiet and calm in this top floor apartment. They themselves have traveled a lot and lived in Europe, so the apartment really seems to have everything a person might need to immediately feel at home! I can't wait to come back!!! They were very attentive and helpful and quick to respond for anything. A really top quality service and experience that I would recommend to anyone!

One more wonderful stay at Naruna's and Pedro. Charming hosts, fantástic location, calm and views in the usually noisy Rio. Full of details and personal care from them, whom I'd like to consider as friends. In my opinion and after living and knowing the city for a long while, the best value of it's kind in Rio, by far.

Naruna and Pedro are very professional and helpful hosts. On arrival I was met by Pedro who guided me through all i needed to know. The flat was great with a perfect location, central yet quiet and with a beautiful view. Highly recommended.

I loved being in this apartment because it is very close to the beaches and all nice restaurants. Also, the apartment is extremely comfortable,clean and it is made with a lot of taste. I enjoyed all recommendations for places to visit in Rio and the welcoming( fruits and food). I personally had a medical problem and the hosts were wonderful because they helped me going to the hospital and made sure I was alright. This shows they are very nice and warm hearted. Overall, I loved my stay in Rio and I would recommend this apartment to anyone!

Hello !

We are Naruna and Pedro, both Brazilians, born and raised in Rio.
We lived in Europe for many years and had the chance to travel a lot around the world, so we have a pretty good idea of what travellers may want...

Living quite near the studio, we deal with our guests directly (no agents in between !) and try to respond to their needs the most we can. We also like to give them the privacy they require but are always happy to answer any questions they might have and help them in getting the best out of their stay in Rio.

We are fluent in English, French, Spanish (and Portuguese, of course), can also manage some Italian, but if your language is none of those, don't worry, we will try our best to communicate with you !
