Perks for the Parents

With an uninterrupted view of the ocean and the surfers of Ipanema Beach, this chic 2-bedroom apartment is steps from some of the city’s best attractions and is in prime location. Additional professional cooks, maids, babysitters, barmen, drivers, etc. may be provided for an extra cost and paid for locally when requested in advance. The hosts can also connect you with excellent local guides based in Rio for those who wish to explore the city, especially recommended for first time visitors.

Why Kids Love it

The beachfront location makes it easy with kids; it’s also great for surfing and some of Rio’s best sights are on the doorstep. Kids can watch the surfers from the living room window. There is a plasma TV with a DVD player so children can watch movies after a day at the beach (we'd recommend, ahem, Rio). Play football, volleyball or beach tennis, take surf lessons, watch capoeira or browse for souvenirs and handicrafts at the hippie fair.

Things to Know

Minimum stay: 7 nights. On the fifth floor of a portered building with elevator access into a semi-private entrance hall. There are only 2 apartments per floor. There is a maid service Monday-Friday 8am-5pm, and an English-speaking concierge available on the day of arrival and departure for up to 4 hours. The hosts offer a pre-arrival food shop, recommended so you will arrive to a kitchen full of food, a fridge full of cold drinks and so the first meal can be served shortly after your arrival. All taxes and domestic bills included except for telephone. Tips, food and drinks not included.

About the Location

The apartment is on the beachside of the main road in Ipanema, Rio de Janeiro. The ocean breeze may help to cancel out any traffic noise. Ipanema is an iconic, upscale neighbourhood centrally located in Zona Sul between Leblon and Copacabana, where you will find great restaurants, bars, shopping, and a vibrant beach scene. It is approximately 30-40 minutes from both Tom Jobim International Airport and Santo Dumont Airport. Car rental strongly recommended. Private transfers with trusted drivers can be arranged from both Rio airports for a fee.

Accommodation Details

The residence has 2 ensuite bedrooms with queensize beds, a fully equipped kitchen covered in original white ceramic tiles, and a large open-plan living/dining room with white marble floors and walls, a lounge area and a dining table. There is a kitchen and a bathroom with tub/shower. At one end of the living room is a large sofa that can be turned into a third bedroom by extending a sliding wall. The apartment has no outside space and has a semi-private entry hall, shared with the 1 other apartment on the same level in the building.

Style Notes

Brazilian chic. The entrance hall to the apartment is covered in mosaic tiles and decorated with a festive beach mural and leads to an apartment with a feeling of light and space, displaying a vibrant collection of contemporary Brazilian art. The living area has high ceilings and 18-meter wide panoramic windows, making for a bright space in which to not only admire the view of the beach, surfers and islands, but also to enjoy the calming sound of the ocean. We love the pop art, the rattan side tables and the picture-perfect views.

Live the dream

Brazil’s second largest city is irrepressibly upbeat, with a 24-hour samba vibe pulsing through it, and a world-class carnival to boot. Whether you’re a family into beaches, culture or adventure, there’s something for you. Take the kids to Copacabana beach, marvel the surfers riding breaks off Prainha, climb for a vacation snaps with Christ the Redeemer or hike through the Tijuca rainforest.
