    My wife and I were looking for an apartment that was well located in the heart of Leblon and close to the beach, and this location is unbeatable. The fact that it's in an apart-hotel adds extra conveniences not usually found in a private apartment, like cleaning and laundry service. We would definitely return.

    Our stay was fantastic. Super close to the Metro, beaches and attractions, and Petra was incredibly responsive, even at the last minute. Thanks!

    Melhor lugar do Rio para se hospedar, lugar seguro e perto de tudo! O apto é maravilhoso, tem uma vista de encher os olhos, difícil querer ir embora! Sempre que for ao Rio quero me hospedar nele e vou indicar para todos meus amigos!

    This apartment was perfect for us. In Leblon which was chilled and safe. Petra and her crew were very helpful, friendly, quick to respond and made us feel welcome. The view was spectacular!! Great that there was a balcony to have our glass of wine with Corcovado in the horizon. I definitely recommend this good value for money apartment and recommend reliable Petra!

    Hi Petra
    I found your service top notch from booking, being met at the airport, meeting Mel who gave us invaluable advice and then being taken back to the airport by the lovely George. We facilities in the apartment are rather basic but soon we settled in and the location and wonderful view easily made up for it.
    We had an amazing time in Rio and absolutely loved it. We had nothing but kindness from the people we met and, of course, the Olympics were thrilling. We managed to visit all three main beaches, Sugarloaf and Christ the Redeemer, all wonderful.
    You are lucky to live in such a fabulous place.Thanks again.
    Warm Regards, Anne

    Perhaps the best rental experience I've had. Petra was extremely communicative, flexible and helpful. The flat is beautiful and comfortable. Great view. Great location. I could not be happier with everything.

    We would totally recommend this place. The apartment is located just around the corner of Leblon's shopping mall, very easy to find. And it's just two blocks away from the beach, less than a 10mins walk to Ipanema, very well connected to the rest of the city. There's plenty of restaurants and bars around, a supermarket very closeby, everthing you need to enjoy your stay. Wifi works perfectly, the kitchen could be a bit improved but has you need to cook. The apt looks exactly like the pictures, and the view is even better than expected! We loved having breakfast looking at the Corcovado, and enjoying the lighting view at night! Also, Petra was very responsive when we needed something. Would definitely come back and recommend this place!

    The appartment is very nice, the view to the lagune is beautiful. It's clean, comfortable and the neighbourhood in leblon is calm and safe. It's a really good place to explore rio! we recommend to use the pickup service from the airport - after a long travel the best choice.

    Fantastic time in Rio! Appartment was just what we needed. Great location. perfect locality, a slow 5 min walk to the beach. Pics on the sight dont do the view from the terrace justice though. Will never forget the view having first coffee of the morning. Special thanks to Tessa for giving us the local info etc. Iain

    “I was very pleased to see that the apartment was just as pictured! The interaction with someone from the team was as described and we were greeted upon arrival while also being greeted by polite lobby staff. The location was perfect for our stay. Shopping Leblon was just around the corner. We were there with a large group and the location proved to be right in the middle of everything, and just a short walk to the beach. What a great experience! I was worried about the kw usage as the listing limits usage but we were able to make it work just fine. I'd definitely recommend to someone traveling to the area.”

    “L appartement est parfait, confortable et conforme a la description. La terrasse et sa vue sur le lagon de rio est tres sympa. Tres bien situé dans la quartier calme et tranquille de leblon, proche de la plage et de toutes commodités (restaurant, transport, boutique). Je le recommande fortement. ”

    “Petra was a great host as she was always available on e-mail and whatsapp for any recommendations or questions I had. She was so helpful at helping me navigate my trip and giving advice. Also the views from the flat are incredible - you can see Corcovado and Christ The Redeemer statue in the far distance! Definitely a good way to try out living like a local, in an area that is quieter but also close to Rua Dias Ferreira if you're into trying fancy food! ”

    “Sehr gut gelegenes Appartment mit einem tollen Ausblick auf den Cordovaro - vor allem am Abend. Der Pool war gut, wenn es zu heiss war um an den Strand zu gehen. Super sicher, mit Doorman. Petra und Mel waren super nett, und haben sich um alles gesorgt und uns Tipps gegeben was wir unternehmen könnten.”

    “The apartment is exactly as described and as others have said in their reviews. Excellent location and wonderful view. It is worth staying there for the security of the neighborhood too. The service and communication was great. Thanks! ”

    “We really enjoyed the time there. The location of the apartment is great because is near to the beach and near to the lake, so we enjoyed different environments according to the weather. Our time inside the flat was as expected because is like photos showed us. We definitely will be back there when the weather get better. Thank you very much!”

    “La experiencia fue buena, finalmente mis padres se hospedaron ahí, y quedaron conformes con la atención. El principal problema es que si bien el departamento estaba bien, El sillón es muy incomodo (malo) y si tu idea es cocinar y comer ahí, le faltan muchas cosas de cocina (incompleto), el edificio y el departamento son viejos pero en buen estado. Es un poco caro para lo que ofrece. Sin dudas lo mejor fue la ubicacion.”

    “We had a great experience with staying at the apt. We had issues with our flights and arrived really late but Mel and Perra were accommodating. Mel met us at the apt the next morning to welcome us and she was helpful with informing the doorman about our luggage arriving late. The location is perfect - close to the beach and all the restaurants and shops. The apt gets cleaned everyday (doesn't include washing sheets, towels, etc) which was great. All in all, it was a great stay and hosts were great!”

    “Tessa and Petra helped to provide lots of information and guidance before and during our stay in Rio and Tessa kindly offered help to coordinate the return of an item that was left by us in the flat. Their website - Rio By Housing - has fantastic details about local restaurants/toursit attractions, which we found very helpful. The basic flat was in a safe building with kind reception staff and located right beside Shopping Leblon, which was convenient. The views are definitely the highlight of the flat. Many thanks!”

    Nuestra estadía en el departamento fue muy buena. La ubicación y la vista son inmejorables. El barrio también, muy tranquilo y cerca de la hermosa playa de Leblon y de Lagoa. Las fotos reflejan el departamento a la perfección, pero por el paso del tiempo le falta un poco de mantenimiento más que nada en la cocina y una limpieza a fondo. Le comunicamos esto a Tessa, que estuvo de acuerdo y muy amablemente nos dijo que lo iban a solucionar. El servicio es genial, no faltaron toallas y todas las mañanas temprano venían a limpiar el dpto.

    Quando eu estava chegando avisei por telefone. A chave ja estava na portaria. Nao precisamos esperar nem um minuto. Foi otimo! Em seguida Tessa veio nos ver para tirar duvidas etc. O apartamento era igualzinho as fotos, inclusive a vista para Lagoa e o Cristo. Tudo otimo! Bairro delicioso, dá pra fazer tudo a pé. Comercio local simpatico e eficiente. Transporte publico proximo. Aluguel de bicicletas tambem.

    A week before arrival we received a welcome by Tessa with all important details. There was also offered Airport shuttle we agreed to because my mates traveled for the first time to Rio. I (who had booked accommodation) arrived a day later. The apartment was in a big way as described in, the kitchen is small and simple but it works for making breakfast. The apartment has a terrace with views of Lagoo which was really nice. You could sit outside and have a glass of wine or so. The pool we used only once, the fans no more time for it. The apartment is fantastic to directly beside the Shopping Leblon, a large shopping mall with all brand shops and cafes. The beach is a few minutes walk away and then there are a lot of really good restaurants within 15 minutes walking distance. Petra has a binder in the apartment with restaurant tipps, the info how to get to the main sightseeing attractions and what to watch out for. Very good for first-time visitors Rio.

    L'appartement est idéalement placé à la frontière de Leblon et d'ipanema, la vue est magnifique et les prestations de l'immeuble (piscine, salle de sport et doorman) rajoutent à la qualité du lieu. En plus, Petra est accueillante et plein de bons conseils sur la ville.

    En vecka före ankomst fick vi ett välkomstbrev av Tessa med alla viktiga detaljer. Där erbjöds också Airport-shuttle som vi tackade ja till eftersom mina kompisar reste för första gången till Rio. Jag (som hade bokat boendet) anlände en dag senare. Lägenheten var i stort sätt som på beskriven, köket är litet och simpelt men det funkar för att göra frukost. Lägenheten har en terrass med utsikten på Lagoo vilket var jätte trevligt. Man kunde sitta ute och tar ett glas vin eller så. Poolen använde vi bara en gång, det fans inte mer tid för det. Lägenheten ligger fantastiskt till, direkt bredvid Shopping Leblon, en stor shopping galleria med alla märkesbutiker och cafeer. Stranden är några minuter promenad bort och sedan finns ett mängd jätte bra restauranger inom 15 minuters promenadavstånd. Petra har en pärm i lägenheten med restaurang tipps, infon hur man tar sig till de viktigaste sightseeing attraktioner och vad man ska akta sig för. Väldigt bra för första gangs Rio besökare.

    A Petra é uma ótima anfitriã, atenciosa e muito organizada. O apartamento estava super limpo e delicioso de ficar. A vista era maravilhosa, com uma sacada de frente para a lagoa, o local é super iluminado, o bairro é ótimo, bem no início do Leblon. Ainda, o prédio tem boa segurança, pois a portaria funciona 24 horas, enfim, foi uma estadia maravilhosa no Rio, super indico para quem quiser curtir em casal.

    Petra nous a très bien accueilli ! Les photos correspondent parfaitement à l'appartement. Petra est venue nous accueillir et nous a laissé nous installé un peu plus tôt car nous arrivions très tôt le matin. Elle nous a aidé à organisé certaines visites et était toujours disponible si nous avions une question. L'appartement est idéalement situé, à seulement 5 min de la plage. L'immeuble est quant à lui très sécurisé et il y a un gardien présent 24h/24h. La vue du balcon est vraiment l'atout majeur de cet appartement ! Nous avons adoré notre séjour à Rio. Merci encore Petra !

    El departamento tiene una ubicacion inmejorable, y hermosa vista a la bahia. Los servicios y espacios comunes del edificio son muy confortables. El departamento se entrego limpio, ordenado y con todo lo necesario para disfrutar de unas vacaciones en la playa. La coordinacion de entrega de las llaves fue muy sencilla y puntual. Para recomendar a los amigos!

    Very nice and well equipped apartment with a fantastic view from the terrace over the lagoon and the statue of Christ in the background. The location just a few hundred meters from the Ipanema Beach and with lots of shops, bars and restaurants within walking distance is perfect. Petra and Tessa are great hosts, helpful and easy to get in contact with. I’ll recommend it anytime. Really good value for money.

    Hola, la verdad la experiencia fue espectacular, el apartamento era exactamente lo que necesitábamos, la ubicación ideal, el recibimiento por parte de ustedes fue muy bueno, la guía de sugerencias de sitios por visitar también excelente, lo único que me pareció un poco costoso fue el servicio de taxi, se conseguían mejores autos y a mejor precio pero para vuelos a horas nocturnas esta bien.
    Mil gracias por todo, espero volver el próximo año un tiempo mas largo con toda mi familia y ya se que cuento con ustedes para todo.

    Really nice apartment located in a clean and quiet hotel with swimming pool, sauna and fitness area. The apartment is situated literally at the back of the Leblon shopping mall, 3 blocks from the beach and in the area there are many fancy restaurants to choose from. It is spacious, bright and quiet, with a lovely view of the Lagoa. With daily housekeeping, a 24 hour reception and a taxi stand directly in front of the building, this is the place to stay.The apartment accommodates a couple and 2 more people easily. We recommend this apartment for a great Rio de Janeiro trip!
