gorgeous and unique at ipanema posto 9 near water, amazing location and rate
Rio de Janeiro
An apartment like no others. Sophistication and elegance naturally merge to create one of the most beautiful and unique spaces in Rio de Janeiro.
Truly progressive and minimalistic design combine Buddhist concepts with modern living, mystic dec …
I feel highly qualified to review this apartment as I have actually stayed in it many times over the years. I am a gringo living in São Paulo (unfortunately) but I love the cidade maravilhosa, and make it back whenever possible.
The apartment itself, which you can see in the pictures (though photos never do justice to true beauty) is stunning, tasteful, exquisite, stylish, modern, with a peaceful and serene Asian feel. Returning from beach life at Ipanema Posto 9 it is like instantly transporting to a tranquil buddhist yoga retreat in Tibet. I have enjoyed this apartment on different occasions with friends visiting from abroad, with more than one namorada from Sampa (don't tell!), and even by myself when I just needed to escape from the concrete jungle. When my whole family came down to visit from the U.S. it was perfect even for all 8 of us! Plenty of space to go around.
Also even if the unit weren't as gorgeous as it is the location simply CAN NOT BE BEAT. Either alone would make the apartment MORE than worth it's going rate, but the combination of the two make it an unbeatable value. You are literally steps away from the greatest beach on the planet, as well as great restaurants, bars, clubs, shopping, literally ANYTHING you want.
The only problem I have ever had with this place is that sometimes it isn't available when I want it! It has gotten to the point though that I actually plan my trips to Rio further in advance, or around the apartment's availability, because once you have lived like royalty it is hard to go back to being a pauper! The times when I go to Rio and don't stay here now I really feel like I'm missing something (and always feel comparatively like I'm overpaying somewhere else). I will also say that the management always goes out of its way to please and is as incredibly attentive to detail as the apartment itself.
This place is really a dream home. Part of the reason I come back a few times a year is to experience, even if just for a few days, how life might feel if I keep working hard and am finally able to strike it rich. I've actually convinced myself that my visits are really a good investment as they keep me motivated and plugging away back at work in Sampa! If I become a multi-millionaire, I will certainly purchase this apartment and live in it full time, so even though that is still a ways off I highly recommend that everyone get a chance to experience this level of luxury and style before I take it off the market!!
This was a really nice overall experience for us. This apartment is just beautiful, and the location is perfect for a vacation, near the beach and near many restaurants and small malls. The service was very friendly and professional. Antonio picked us up at the airport with a big Brazilian smile and coordinated the check-in for us. Further, we were given daily tips from Liz on events not to be missed in Rio during our stay, things that we would not have known about if it weren't for her. We felt very welcome and we could see how our hosts truly wanted us to see the best parts of their city, and in the safest ways. We had a rainy day and they called us with a list of things to do when it rains in Rio. Very sweet! This is something that we were not expecting, but that made a big difference in how we felt and how we were able to experience Rio de Janeiro. Definitely we highly recommend this agency and this apartment. We really liked them! We should have stayed longer. Thank you again for everything. Claudette.
Abbiamo affittato questo appartamento in ottobre su indicazione di una cara amica americana che vive a ipanema e siamo estremamente soddisfatti della scelta. Ottimo appartamento e ottima ubicazione effettivamente proprio davanti al posto 9, credo piu' vicino al posto 9 persino degli alberghi della zona.
Il prezzo piu' che ragionevole, il servizio attento e molto accessibile (parlano anche un po' di italiano). La casa e' molto spaziosa, anche piu' di quanto ci aspettassimo, molto pulita, ben curata, e luminosa. L'arredamento e le decorazioni sono minimaliste ma efficienti e non ci e' mancato nulla. In generale un appartamento e un'agenzia seria da ricordarsi e da usare ancora. Sandro, Milano, Italy.
We live in Buzios and every two months or so we spend a few of days in Rio
for shopping and entertainment. Our dates are always flexible so we usually
stay here whenever this apartment is available. We have stayed here a number
of times over the last three years and had friends visiting us in Buzios
stay in this apartment as well for their time in Rio. Definitely there are
not many apartments like this one in Rio for vacation rentals, and anyone
who stays here will be very pleased and always feel well taken care of. This
small corner of Ipanema really makes all the difference to us because it is
right by Garota de Ipanema, Zaza, and all the shops of Praça da Paz.
Moreover, just yards from the beachfront posto 9 which is quite rare for an
affordable rental. The apartment is very large, very well kept, thoroughly
clean, and in a quiet and upscale building. The Buddhas, the granite, and
the bamboo plants create an atmosphere that we love and only find here.
Although we don’t need any of the extras, we find them useful for any first
time travelers to Rio who do not speak Portuguese: having local phones and a
person to call at any time who speaks English can be very important. Over
time we have gotten to know both the owners and the management and we can
speak highly of all of them. The apartment is a great find for anyone who
wishes to enjoy Ipanema in a safe and near-beach location without spending a
lot of money. Mandy and Bill.
De fato o apartamento é bem localizado: fica próximo a praia e a praça N. Sra. da Paz, com várias opções de refeição, atividades de lazer e serviços. O preço também é justo. A sala é espaçosa e a mobília de maneira geral está em bom estado de conservação.
Saliento, no entanto, alguns pontos negativos que fazem toda a diferença. A limpeza da roupa de cama e banho, por exemplo, não podia ser pior. Toalhas e lençóis tinham uma murrinha horrível, parecendo que não eram lavadas há bastante tempo... Por sorte, um de nós chegou 1 dia depois e trouxe algumas roupas de cama e banho limpas. Os travesseiros, bem como o sofá e poltrona da sala, e suas capas, também cheiravam muito mal, e usá-los era extremamente desagradável. Aliás, ao contrário do que consta no site, as roupas de cama e banho não são de boa qualidade, e no estado em que se encontram, precisariam ser substituídas imediatamente. Isso é válido para os edredons também.
A limpeza do resto do apartamento era aceitável, mas precária nos banheiros, onde encontramos areia e cabelos dentro do box, além do ralo entupido. A localização da máquina de lavar roupa (dentro de 1 dos banheiros) também atrapalha se movimentar dentro dele. Entendo que não há área de serviço mas deveria ter sido previsto um local mais apropriado para lavar e secar roupas, não?
Também nos questionamos o motivo porquê os vidros das janelas dos 2 quartos dos fundos estão trancadas, impossibilitando a ventilação natural dos mesmos e contribuindo para permanência de odores desagradáveis como umidade.
Não posso deixar de mencionar que a falta de venezianas ou cortinas black-out nas janelas dos quartos dos fundos dificulta o sono pela manhã, o que não ocorre no quarto da frente. Neste, porém, o problema é o barulho da rua, já que não há qualquer tipo de vedação na janela e há uma parada de ônibus quase em frente ao prédio.
Por fim, destaco a falta de educação e cordialidade das moças com quem tratamos por e-mail, fone e pessoalment. Durante a negociação, nos trataram como se estivessem nos prestando um favor, sem qualquer flexibilidade. Além disso, mostraram-se pedantes e sem profissionalismo, chegando ao cúmulo de solicitar que um de nós desentupisse uma das patentes, mesmo durante a faxina! Inacreditável!
Bem, para nós, um bom atendimento, limpeza e qualidade de lençóis e toalhas (básico) valem mais do que uma decoração exótica, acesso a internet e TV último tipo. Por isso, não pretendemos alugá-lo novamente nem recomendá-lo a outros
We rented this apartment last minute for a few days at the end of August and were impressed both by the location and by the apartment itself. We were lucky to have real sunny days, and in fact this bright apartment became summery and very 'white' from early on in the morning. We found this property to be very clean and well kept, with a unique décor that reminded us we were, in fact, on vacation. Located between the beach and da paz square this location is superb. The rate we paid was more than reasonable, and there were no additional charges. Our rate included a complimentary cleaning lady for two days. We were given receipts at check-in with additional contact information for any possible questions or needs, two cell phones, and a laptop computer. The security deposit was returned to us at check-out with no delays, and I noticed it was the same bills we gave at check-in. I, personally, liked that. We had a person of the agency take us around the city one afternoon and we discovered some corners of Rio that we would not have found on our own. Anyone looking for good honest value will be highly satisfied by renting this property. Carl J. H.
I travel to Rio often, and I inquired about renting this apartment several times, but it was always booked. Finally I managed to get a reservation and I now know why it took me so long. This flat is super value - beautiful architecture and interior decoration, much bigger than average, everything works, low nightly rate, and the girls who manage it are real funny and sweet-hearts. And all of this in front of Ipanema Posto 9 Beach, as opposed to where I stayed other times farther away from the beach, and always more expensive. Can't ask for more! In fact, now that I think of it, there is more in the apartment than is advertised for, including a washing machine in one of the bathrooms that was useful, and a very nice cleaning lady courtesy of the management. So, here it is: my 'THANK YOU' for everything, and see you again soon I hope. Dennis TM
My partner and I stayed at this apartment for 8 nights in March and our experience overall was quite good. I would definitely stay here again.
The location is great, the space in the apartment is large, there is wifi as well as a safe in the apartment, the beds are comfortable, the back bedrooms are quiet, and lastly, the owner was very helpful via email throughout the stay.
There are several minor things that could be improved about the apartment. First, the rooms are not dark and the light comes streaming into the rooms in the morning which would be fixed by installing dark curtains. Second, during a week long stay we had the same bath towels for the whole time; I think it would be nice to have these changed at least once every few days. Third, the television reception is terrible; it is only viewable about 50% of the time.
None of these criticisms are major enough to stop me from staying at the apartment again. I found the owner very helpful. I had a late flight and she arranged for me to leave my bags for a fee with the doorman.
We rented this apartment for a 6-day vacation in Rio this past November. The apartment is like in the pictures posted on this website, and we received the lowest rate for what we now know is one of the best rentals in Ipanema. Somehow this apartment was priced lower than any of the other three-bedrooms in the area, most of which were actually at least one block farther away from the beach, or not even at Post 9. This fact alone made us all happy. As far as I am concerned, the things I look for when I travel are comfortable beds, powerful air conditioning, and strong water pressure. I plan my day in the shower and I really appreciate lots of water on me while I do that. This rental gave me what I wanted. There is a washer in one of the bathrooms that is not advertised but came quite handy: we did not wash much stuff, but it was nice to have the option. The apartment has a nice open view of the sky and some trees that is not in any of the pictures, this makes the unit feel very open and bright. The living room is larger than we expected. All three bedrooms are quite spacious. I am no expert in terms of vacation apartments in Rio, but a friend of ours who lives in Lagoa, a nearby neighborhood, came over and was very impressed by this home and repeatedly praised our pick. The service was also promptly available and excellent, starting with the driver who met us at the airport and coordinated our check-in. Many thanks again, hope to be back soon. Andrew G.
We found this way-cool apartment via an amazing friend we made in Rio last year, and yes!! It did work out wonderfully!!
Rio is beautiful and we all know that... but really... Cariocas seem to be nicer every time we go!! And this time was no exception! :-) Thank you again wonderful girls of EzRio for taking care of us ever-lost foreigners!!! Sure the apartment was great just like they said it would be, we received a low rental rate (and we really have to say that), and what more can we add?? Perfect location and it's gorgeous so everybody rent it!! These are fantastic people and they provide such a service! One super thing... do take their pointers on where to go... they know some places even our local friends were surprised to discover!! Muito obrigada e ate mais! Jan, Barb, Kat, and baby Nina! :-)
My girlfriends and I went to Rio three times in 2009 and we stayed here twice, definitely this apartment was our favorite Very stylish with walls covered in white stone and sculptures and there is diffuse lighting from the floors and the ceilings. We also used candles and with some music it all was just beautiful.
The location is definitely prime, we felt very safe the whole time and just across beach Posto 9 and from many famous restaurants and our delicious Zaza!
The street is busy with people and full of life day and night and trafficked in rio style so we felt this added to our safety especially when walking back at night.
The rate we paid was quite low (thank you), equivalent to one hotel room in ipanema, and there were five of us and plenty of space for all. We researched several hotels and other apartments in the area and for our budget we could not find anything comparable especially location wise, and that was very important to us.
The service was attentive and prompt, we were given local cell phones and one laptop so we could contact the staff at anytime and mostly we called to find out about restaurants or nightlife, and this made a big difference especially our first time in Rio. Also, we had a free guide both times and she took us to the islands across from Ipanema beach for a swim which was great fun and we would never had thought about it! Everything was as promised, no surprises or extra charges, and they spoke perfect English.
We were happy with the whole experience and aside from the specifics of this apartment, we had a great time just based on the daily recommendations we received and they made sure we were always kept posted of the best events happening during our stay. We really felt like we had local friends hosting us and taking care of us while visiting Rio, and this made it very special.
Global economy and boyfriends permitting we will go to Rio again this year and stay at this apartment for sure. All thumbs up from us! :)
