    We stayed for 5 days at the beautiful flat in 4 min walking distance from the Leblon beach. The neighborhood is full of nice bars and restaurants, there are 2 shopping malls and various supermarkets within the area. The building has a concierge service and the flat is exactly as on the picture. The host provides very detailed description of all amenities and travel tips for tourists. The host is very helpful and friendly, so are the concierge people :) I really enjoyed my stay in Rio and would definitely recommend Petra's place.

    El departamento es fantástico, amplio, muy bien ubicado y con todo lo necesario... a la salida tiene un metro, tiendas para ir de compras y a dos cuadras de la playa Ipanema... Es un lugar seguro por las noches y en el día. Las instrucciones y recomendaciones de la estancia están muy bien indicados. Recomiendo mucho este lugar!

    Excelente apartamento, bem decorado e muito bem localizado. Bons vizinhos e agora com a obra do metrô finalizada é uma ótima opção. A Petra foi muito prestativa e em todos os eventuais contatos que precisei, respondeu prontamente. Recomendo!

    The apartment was extremely convenient, situated on Leblon's central street. Five minute or less walk to beach, food, and transportation. Apartment building very safe with multiple staff. Great host, could not have asked for a better Rio accommodation.

    “O apartamento é exatamente como mostram as fotos, estava limpo e arrumado. A Petra nos recepcionou na hora marcada e nos deu várias dicas de programas interessantes para fazer na região e no Rio em geral. Foi bastante prestativa e super disponível. A localização é excelente, e com certeza repetiríamos a experiência.”

    “Cute place, great location, friendly people. Tessa was extremely helpful and responsive. The apartment is just a few blocks from the beach, across from the mall (which makes it easy if you need to pick up a few supplies) and near lots of great restaurants. I definitely recommend this spot.”

    “Não chegamos a conhecer a Petra, mas tudo foi excelente! Nos comunicamos via whatsapp sem problemas! A chave ficou a disposição na portaria para hora que chegássemos. O apartamento é bárbaro, igual às fotos. De um tamanho ótimo para 2 pessoas. A localização é excelente, há poucos metros da entrado do Shopping Leblon e Rio Design. O bairro Leblon tem tudo que é necessário, não precisa sair da volta, além de ser muito perto da praia. Além de tudo, o apartamento conta com TV a cabo com paperview do Brasileirão, internet, uma excelente máquina de lavar/secar roupa... Recomendamos com força e provavelmente voltaremos a nos hospedar neste apartamento quando voltarmos ao Rio. Simplesmente amamos!”

    Lovely location and the apartment is clean and had all the facilities we needed. Very close to a very good beach. We had a very enjoyable stay. The host was quick to respond to any queries and very helpful.

    We were welcomed by Tessa, which accommodated for us to arrive a little earlier than expected. She was very friendly and informative. The neighborhood is very safe and near the beach. There are plenty of great restaurants in the Leblon & Ipanema area that are accessible by a short taxi drive or walk. It is right next to Leblon Shopping which also has plenty of cafes and restaurants and great shopping.

    Para uma Carioca saudosa do Leblon, da Praia, das pessoas, essa localidade foi perfeita. Pertinho da Praia, shopping, melhores bares do Rio e botecos. O apt super bem equipado, limpo e um colchao confortavel. Retornarei ano q vem c certeza! If you wanna stay at heart of Rio, the best spot is Leblon. Cool ppl, bars, shopping, grocery stores....everything you do need to have fun! So close to the beach. I will be back for sure!

    Our experience in Rio was amazing! Petra and Tessa helped arrange a very good transfer to and from the apartment who was friendly. The apartment is just as it looks in the photos and is very lovely and well decorated. We felt very secure in the apartment and was in a nice area right next to a big shopping centre and the beach! The Metro was not very far and taxis and buses are easy to use to get around. Petra and Tessa were both very helpful and just at the other end of an email if we needed anything. They had a small manual to explain things in the apartment and how to get around in Rio which proved very useful. The TV signal and Wifi is great too! I would definitely recommend this apartment for anyone who would like to experience Rio. Thanks Petra and Tessa!!

    We enjoyed our stay in Leblon. The airport transfer was simple and efficient. The apartment was clean, well appointed and located within easy walking distance of the beach and some nice bars, cafes and shops. Tessa was very welcoming and gave us some useful information on the area, some tips for fun activities in Rio and recommendations for making a transfer to Ilha Grande. Would certainly stay again. Thank you.

    My husband and I stayed at Petra's apartment and had a wonderful time. It was in a very safe part of Leblon and had everything we needed. Tessa was extremely helpful and hospitable, giving us amazing recommendations of things to do in the city. Highly recommend staying at this wonderful apartment.

    Adorei a localização do apartamento. Próximo ao shopping Leblon e ao comércio local(supermercados, bares, etc). 3 quadras da praia e 3 quadras da Lagoa. Não tem como ser melhor. Bem equipada com todas as necessidades diárias (ferro de passar, cafeteira, microondas, fogão, maquina de lavar, ar condicionado, chuveiro a gás). Cama ótima. O apartamento estava limpo e fomos recebidos por Tessa no horário combinado (sem atrasos). O único inconveniente (muito pequeno/ não faz barulho) são as obras do metro. Quando ficar pronto o apto ficará nota 10. Fácil deslocamento para copacabana (onibus na orla)

    I just wanted to write a quick letter thanking you. Juliana and I had an amazing time in Rio and a great deal of it had to do with the great apartment we rented from you. Everything was exactly as we wanted it to be...it couldn't have been more perfect. The doorman, Sr. Antonio, was so helpful. When Juliana left, he made sure he found me a cab driver that wasn't going to rip me off...he was even able to find a driver that spoke a little English. Great guy!!
    Next time I am in Rio, I will certainly give you a buzz.

    Hello Petra
    It's nearly a month ago (dec 2009) that we stayed at your Paiva 3 appartment at the hot spot between Leblon & Ipanema. We loved the location, the style and design of the place - it's hardly to find this kind of a quality place in Rio, especially for this price! I'll certainly get back to you guys when returning to Rio and will recommed it to my friends!

    I was very pleased with the apartment which was just as advertised, and in a very good area, close to the beach and to shops. They also have security in the building. They organised transfer to and from the airport and met me on arrival which was a great help. I highly recommend staying in an apartment in Rio which is around half the price of a hotel. Payment was very easy through PayPal and all the organising was done very easily in English through email.

    Na lang zoeken naar een vakantie appartement in Rio de Janeiro kwamen wij terecht bij Rio Bay Housing. Het appartement dat wij in eerste instantie wilden huren was niet meer beschikbaar Er volgde een bijzonder leuke e-mailwisseling, waarna wij besloten het advies van Petra en Inge op te volgen en Paiva 3 in Leblon te huren. Hier hebben wij geen spijt van gehad! Leuk appartement, goede (veilige) buurt en alles bij de hand: strand op korte loopafstand, volop winkels, restaurants, openbaar vervoer enz. Kortom, een aanrader!

    Hi Petra,
    We had a wonderful time,and loved the apartment Paiva 3. It is tastefully furnished in a modern style which suited us, and the complex is very secure and a great location for the beach, for Ipanema etc. The day trip with the taxi which you organised was brilliant. He is quite a character and very informative.
    We really had no complaints. We had a lovely time in Leblon, and by coincidence, met a girl in a Manhattan restaurant the following week, whose father lives near your aprtment in Leblon! Small world.
    We would not hesitate to recommend the apartment to any of our friends
    Very best wishes
