The location, close to the beach, stores, restaurants, and subway can't be beat!
Outside it was 106 degrees, but the AC worked flawlessly to keep it cool inside!
My wife likes a big bathroom and this one is quite small, but manageable.
The wifi & large TV worked great. While there is a small fridge & stove, there is no kitchen or even kitchenette.
All in all, it was a good experience. The view of the beach alone was worth it!
We would certainly book it again.
Be forewarned, most people in Rio CAN'T speak English!
We sincerely appreciate David's assistance during our stay!!! He was very helpful.
I was so excited to this trip but i did wrong decision booking this flat. David was very nice and helpful. He will assist you what ever he can do through emails.. Tata his staff can't speak english so you don't have any choice but to deal with it.
Location was nice easy walk to the restaurant and beach.
We arrive 1:30 am and expecting that we can have a good night sleep after a long day. The bed was horrible it sink in the middle. The place was dirty, the bathroom has hairs when we arrive. The toilet bowl move when you sit. I saw old boxer short in the cabinet. Don't look for Kitchen area as it was not existing. Well if you will think that the fridge and microwave is a kitchen area that will be fine. The electric grill was on the top of the dining table. ( Look like they just put it before we arrive) We ask for a piece of wood where we can rest the grill. we just put it on the top of the chair. No pots or frying pan they bought some the next day. No sink to was the plate. You will do it in the bathroom sink. The digital safe is not digital at all, it was a small old metal box that can fit a wallet and a cell phone.
I send email to david the same night we arrive that we are moving out in the morning. And i want my money back. But he didn't respond. Then he try to fix all the problem.
We try to book to different place but all the vacation rental in the area are booked. Can't find a hotel room that we can stay 10 straight nights.
Lesson learned that picture don't look the same in real package.
Location was fantastic. Across the road to Copacabana beach, same road for bus to both airports, one block to buses for all local access including major sites, 5mins to metro and lovely couple of restaurants and bars one block back. Felt safe and secure. Could do with a bit of refurbishment and more attention to cleaning. David (owner) was also very responsive.
