Our 90mq apartment is conveniently located in Ipanema.
On the second floor of a 24h porter typical carioca building.
One “cuadra” (2 minutes walk) from Ipanema Posto 10 world famous beach.

The space

Our apartment is a 2 kingsize bedrooms +2 bathrooms (one ensuite)+ fully equiped kitchen +livingroom +small terrace and airconditionning. WE HAVE WI FI INTERNET and TV
The apartment is lovely: decorated with an italian/ipanemian touch.
All the rooms have curtains and the apartment is on the 2nd floor of the building. One bedroom faces Henrique Dumont and the other is in the internal side.

The entrance is an open space facing the living room. We will provide a basket for immediate storage when coming back from a long visita round the city.
In the living there is a big window facing Avenida Henrique Dumont with a GREEN view of a florid tree.
Rio is a happy energic city that’s why we decorated the living in RED!
The living has a big really confortable red sofa with 7 cushions (no sleeping there admitted!!), a full original CAMPARI XL bottle used as a lamp (home made by us from Italy), a painting made with Roman tree leaves, 3 sitting pouf, a design harmchair, airconditioning, small table made with a vintage European football toy of last century.
There are 4 small perspex tables in the living room one with jbl speaker for ipad/iphone white and another one with a telephone, available only for receiving calls..

Dining room:
it’s actually in the same open space of the living but closer to the entrance and the kitchen. The long rectangular table is as high as it would be in a “hopper” painting and there are 4 bar chairs (as high as the table of course!).
Next to it we painted a vintage stair and created (with plexiglass inserts) a design library where you can read 4 interesting art books.

This room is fully equiped you can keep it closed or open the sliding “windows” facing the dining room and the living.
The kitchen has a L shape and at the other end has a window accessing a small terrace with no particular view.
There are typical italian cuisine vintage posters and all the necessary for your high end menus!

You access the bedrooms part of the apartment from the living passing in between the dining space and the living.
In between the two rooms there is a guest bathrooms with “loft kind of” open space lavabo.
In front –behind a door of course- there is the rest of the bathroom with WC and shower. The space is not enourmous because we wanted to use most of it for a conformatble shower! We hope you will share the decision…Nothing like a good modern shower after a day visiting around.
This bathroom is for the velvet bedroom occupants (and external guests you might have visiting) as in the other bedroom there is an ensuite bathroom.
Both bathrooms have windows and storage design boxes.
On your left side ariving from the living you can find the Happy BEDROOM
This bedroom is the quietest, facing the covered terrace that ends to the kitchen that overlooks a courtyard of no interest.
It has a King size bed with an excellent matress,
ensuite bathroom with BIG MODERN shower
Happy coloured lamps on the side tables
Extra reading lamps
Air conditionning
And an authentic wooden parquet on the floor
The Velvet bedroom is the brightest with its window facing Avenida Henrique Dumont.
It also has a King size velvet bed with an excellent mattress, airconditioning
and an authentic wooden parquet on the floor.
The 2 side tables are wooden vintage ones with modern reading lamps.
Storage with hangers and 1 black console.
Both bedrooms are spacious, not for dancing maybe but we don’t get the impression of sleeping in a small room at all!!!
The apartement windows iron blockers not for special security reason but only because living in Italy we prefer to leave everything closed when we travel.

The flat was ok and close to the beach, but slightly outside from Ipanema downtown. The local person, Tina, who coordinates everything locally was a very nice person and very easy to deal with. Unfortunately the communication with the host itself was very difficult and even though I spent more than a month in there flat, it was not easy to extend by a few days (even though, the flat was empty). In Airbnb, it was mentioned that there is an additional fee for additional guests, but they will not recredit to you in case you are alone (which was my case for 2/3 of the month I spend there). When you ask them for recredit, they just change the conditions in the Airbnb website and tell you that there was not such thing. Not really the fine way.

Response from Famiglia:
Dealing with Thierry was simply exausting. He kept asking favours that we met any time we could (free early check in, free late check out, discounts on the extra nights, extra invoices, payments, new hairdrier to get a warmer one) and he seemed annoyed we couldn't block our flat availability for the 5 days after his check out (Halloween: peak season week end included) just to keep his luggages in exchange of a tip!! He almost stalked us writing constantly for discounts for the number of people hosted as his family apparently didn't stay the same amount of nights as him: all of this after paying and confirming booking and also leaving! Our education is the only reason why we kept answering him and explaining that what he had already accepted and paid corresponded to the total amount of the apartment he was using and not the single people in it. These are the reasons of this unfair review as confirmed by the previous good reviews of other normal and educated guests. Thierry is really unpolite as he pretends not to understand what you explain to him and lies also on evidencies as the fact that can be easily confirmed He states we are far from ipanema downtown when we are right in the heart of it: ipanema posto 10 beach and obelisco de ipanema (vinconde de piraja) are right down our building. Lies don't go far.

During the olympics we will be using our apartment and we couldn't block the calendar before one year ahead and debora managed to book it however. We thought it was for august 2015 and 2 minutes after accepting her reservation we realized it was for 2016 and immediately canceled!

The apartment itself was clean and the decorations / atmosphere was good. The location of the apartment is walking distance from everywhere. The only bad things i have to say are that you should be prepared for no television and no wifi. The listing states that there is wifi yet when i contacted the owner he told me they take the wifi off of neighbors and that still did not work. Overall the hosts Joanne and Tina were great.

Response from Famiglia:
He was disappointed there was no wifi in the apartment and despite the fact this is not promised in the listing (and he couldn't tell us the contrary when we tried to help him to find an open wifi connection in the building!) he left a review saying our listing mentioned there was wifi in our place which isn't true! We are really sorry about this as Tina always makes her best and even more to make our guests stay special. If the guest was mainly interested in TV and internet he should have chosen a listing that offered this, probably he didn t even read our listing details as he contacted us and booked the day before his arrival.
