sophistication and elegance naturally merge to create one of the most beautiful and unique vacation residences in rio de janeiro.
truly progressive and minimalistic design combine buddhist concepts with modern living, mystic decorations with superb lighting.
natural white stones, rough Italian marble, original asian sculptures, a templar candle wall, and deep earth colors make this loft a most exclusive space for the sophisticated world traveler and stylish connoisseur.
ideally located only steps from the waves of posto 9, this beach apartment will make your vacation just perfect.
PEFECT LOCATION AT IPANEMA POSTO 9!
set in the very best and safest part of ipanema, this near-beach-front flat is in the absolute perfect spot for both day beach activities, and for night life.
seconds away from the famous ipanema beach 9 (ipanema posto 9), this apartment is a few yards from the beach - no long walks necessary to be right on the sand, and amazingly convenient to take a short break from the sun, take a fast nap, a refreshing shower, or to just quickly check email.
in addition to being next to the world famous beach, this loft is just steps from some of rio's best restaurants and landmark night-life spots such as the baronetti club, the crystal lounge, zaza, botequim informal, liquido, garota de ipanema, conversa fiada, the elegant garcia d'avila street, and the lively farme de amoedo street - home of devassa and club 69.
the living room changes dramatically between day and night
during the day it has a very cool, clean, bright feel of a deluxe beach apartment. at night, the recessed invisible lighting and the majestic candle wall take over the space to transform it into an uniquely elegant ambiance at par with some of the most sophisticated cocktail spots in new york, london, and sydney. art and sculptures magically come to life and create a sense of peace and escape, luxury and simplicity.
the living room has a large flat screen LCD TV, a DVD player, a sound system for music and movies, a digital cable converter with 200 local and international TV and music channels, an i-pod ready stereo, an oversized couch big enough for 5 that can also be used as a queen-size bed, a sofa-chair perfect for reading, a coffee table, and low solid wooden stools.
huge wall size windows allow plenty of light during the day, and an open view of trees and modern buildings. super-bright white mirror-like floors reflect the sky from every angle.
two bedrooms have king size beds, indonesian furniture and decor to keep the mood flowing, along with recessed ambient lighting.
one bedroom has a queen size bed and the same asian decor and recessed lighting found throughout the apartment. this bedroom also has a private bathroom and a 7-ft glass wall separating the shower from the bedroom itself.
the master bedroom has a private movie theater designed to enjoy videos on an enormous 100-inch high-resolution screen at 4,300 lumens, immersed by a dedicated sound system while in a king size bed. truly amazing.
all three bedrooms have mattresses of the finest quality, along with high-count pure cotton sheets, comforters, pillows, and powerful air conditioning to guarantee total comfort year round.
the couch in the living room is bigger than a queen size bed. one extra bed is also available, so that up to 9 people may be easily accommodated in this loft.
the open-concept kitchen is extremely streamlined to allow full functionality while occupying the smallest possible space. built in travertino romano, the only marble used throughout this loft, this kitchen is pure efficiency and elegance.
a bar allows 4 people to dine, or can be used to set up drinks for a cocktail party. the ultra-modern white stools blend with the ambiance and combine decor and comfort.
the refrigerator and microwave are placed inside the cabinets underneath the counter, invisible unless required. a flat black induction cook top is discretely carved in the marble counter and looks like a small flat-screen TV. there is also an american coffee maker, a blender, a toaster, cooking pans, and various containers and kitchen items.

Tijdens een reis door Brazilië kwam ik hier terecht. De styling van dit appartement is prachtig met accessoires uit diverse delen van de wereld. De verhuurders zorgden ervoor dat alles tot in de puntjes verzorgd was bij aankomst. Heerlijk om in thuis te komen na een dagje strand, city sightseeing of hard werken. Strand is 3 minuutjes lopen. De vriendelijke deurman geeft het geheel een betrouwbaar gevoel. Er is een lift. Werkelijk een ideale verblijfsplek voor zakelijke reizen of vakanties.

By our own admission, we are not the easiest guests to please. In this case we were quite impressed with the location of the unit, and the service we received from the airport pick-up and on. The check-in process was very easy and as detailed at booking, the driver coordinated with the agency. We were asked for documents at check-in, and given e-mail and phone numbers to use for any need or problems during our stay. We were also given a detailed receipt for the rental and for the refundable security deposit. The apartment comes with one laptop computer and cell phones. This home has a welcoming feel, modern in style and very luminous. In daytime the decor inspires a lean and efficient use of the space and minimizes clutter. At nighttime, it encourages lounging and socializing. All three bedrooms are fine in size, with very comfortable matress, and properly air-conditioned. The front bedroom-suite is the closest to the street and some traffic noise can be heard in the late afternoon. Both rooms in the back are silent. If I could offer a suggestion, would be to perhaps add a frigo-bar in the movie-theater bedroom. We found very useful the collection of flyers for the various guides and tour professionals in the city. Before booking we researched several apartments in Ipanema, and we chose this one for its very close proximity to the beach Posto 9. Additionally, for safety reasons, the setting of this unit inside a cozy doorman-building and on a residential street was exactly what we were looking for. The apartment is very clean, including the large mirrors that usually are hard to polish. We were happy to enjoy a dust-free environment. The fee we paid was the lowest rate we received among all the units in our original list, including for some rentals in less desirable locations and away from ipanema beach. We received what we were hoping for or more, and we all agreed on five stars on this apartment, and the management. We can easily recommend this apartment.

We have been to Rio a number of times, three of which we stayed at this property. Set by Zaza, the location is unbeatable and literally half the price of anything beachfront on Viera Souto. The unit is modern, clean, sunny, and larger than any of the other 3beds we rent in Ipanema. What we like about this space, aside from the style and location, is that it's halfway between a normal home and a hotel so it can be used in both ways. It is the ideal spot for anyone who wants to be in the heart of Ipanema since is between Praca da Paz and the beach Posto 9. Lagoa, Farme de amoedo, and Garcia d'Avila are a 5minute walk away. There is not much else I can say about this rental other than that it is perfect for us and that the management is extremely easy to reach and to work with, always on time, and ready to help us out to get tickets for events or soccer games. Our emails have been consistently responded to faster than anyone we have dealt with. The apartment comes with towels, but they are the standard towels that people use in Rio, small and light, so if anyone likes to use very big towels or bathrobes they should probably bring their own. One thing: beach towels are not used in rio, so no need to bring those. There is great water pressure, one thing not to take for granted in Rio, and it does make a difference after a day at the beach. The laptop in the apartment is functional but mostly for doing emails and to check on local events, so anyone planning of doing real work should bring their own computer (or not come to Rio at all, actually!). The internet connection is very fast and always on. The projector in the bedroom is fantastic on a rainy day, but watch out you could spend the whole day in bed if you start playing with that. Moneywise, we've always got a great rate possibly also because we keep coming back since 2009. Doing the math, the money we save here always adds up to a couple of free nights. Thanks again, see you hopefully soon. Alf., NYC

We enjoy the beautiful things in life, but having kids we also are very careful with money, and in this new economic reality, this is exactly the type of rental that makes a difference. As advertised, the apartment is in the perfect location in Ipanema: on a beautiful, very safe, residential street just around the corner from a myriad of shops and restaurants, and a ten-second stroll from the famous Post 9. The home is extremely clean, quite spacious, and very comfortable. The air conditioning is powerful and adequate. The back bedrooms have two split units that literally freeze the rooms. We slept like babies, and my husband often praised the bed. The main bedroom has a small movie theater that hypnotized our kids and gave my husband and me some much appreciated alone time. The bathrooms are large with wall-to-wall mirrors. There is a washing machine, and that was a nice surprise. The kitchen is hidden on a side of the living room and complete with everything we needed. The living room is bright, has a nice view of the sky and some trees, and at night it is perfect to watch televison. In fact, the walls are very unusual for an indoor space and beautiful to look at, someone put a lot of thought in this interior design. The internet worked and was very fast. The service was prime from the start: we received fast replies to our emails both before arriving and during our stay. We were given cell phones and a laptop, and offered free personal assistance if we ever needed it. We were charged a very fair price, on the low side if I can dare to say, and there were no additional charges. As a matter of fact, we also had a cleaning lady and we were not charged for the service. I am not one to post comments on the internet, but we were perfectly happy here so we feel this lovely place deserves some words of praise and gratitude for making a tangible contribution to the quality of our stay. We would definitely like to stay here again next time we visit Rio. J.J.S./Paris

We found this apartment via a friend and it worked out excellent. Hands down this apartment is great value, awesome location, and the management real good people. You can tell they really care and I'm happy to write a review for them.
The apartment is real large, has a beach feel during the day and turns into this lounge at night. It sure was a big hit with our girlfriends. Sort of ancient and mystic and modern all at the same time. Way cool. The beds are firm and big: solid sleep and I could stretch no problem, a lucky change from previous places. This was a huge plus for me since I am 6'3. There is a projector in one bedroom which is hard to resist and lots of american channels in the living room for news, and sports. The stereo connects to the DVD so we rented a few flicks and watched them in style. I totally liked the invisible kitchen. The stove-top looks like an i-Pad embedded in the marble - classy!
If it is location that you want, you got it - real top spot. Walk out the door and you are basically on the sand. Turn to the left and you have Garota de Ipanema plus all restaurants of Vinicious and Farme de amoedo. Turn to the right and you have Praca da Paz square with lots of bars, discos and the very beautiful people!! There you have shopping from fashion to Italian ice cream (gelato!), and a garden with a pond and fresh-stuff market. Even a very busy hip church. Yellow cabs and people everywhere day and night. 1-2-3 action!
Our rate included a cleaning lady and that's money well spent. I cannot think of anything to complain about especially since we paid little and received much. All in all we were treated like good friends and kept in the loop for music and sporting events. We called the staff for tickets to the Maracana and they brought them to us in literally twenty minutes. What a fantastic city, I love Rio every time more. I think one of these days I'm just not going back to the airport and I will just stay there - just watch me!

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 sside 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! :)
