Luminous, peaceful and practical apartment situated at the more glamorous and agreeable "point" of Rio de Janeiro : on Ipanema beach, in a residencial area with all facilities at a 200 m distance (metro, food fairs, supermarkets, shops & banks) . Beautiful furniture of the 50's, "american kitchen" (open on living room), 1 double room, 1 single room, 2 little bathrooms with shower, thin view over the beach, which is at a 40 m distance from the building.
Charming art deco small building. The flat has a very practical plan, making cohabitation for 2 or 3 people easy and agreeable. The design of the flat is original and arty ; beautiful furniture of the 50ties.
Beds and mattresses are very comfortable. At night you hear the sea.
1 room w King size bed (can become 2 single beds) and immediate access to bathroom; 1 room w single bed, bathroom in suite; free cupboard in the double room, free cupboard and free shelves in the single room.
1 living room w stylish dining table, sofas and armchairs.
Very practical american kitchen open on the living room.
The whole flat is for your own use.
During the period of your stay I might be out of Rio, still always accessible by cell phone, zap or email.
My maid is always accessible by phone if you need any help, she is very trustable and keeps kees of the flat.
The building is guarded 24h/24 : the guard opens you when you press on "Port" at the entrance bell and he carries your luggage.
Interaction with guests
We can talk by email. I will send you a document I wrote with tourist guidelines about Rio . My maid will be alerted about your arrival, she will open the flat, hand you the kees and show you the details of the apartment.
Other things to note
Take care not to put sand nor water on the soil, which is in wood. Keep the windows closed when you go out.
Do not balance or sit two people on the seats (they are collection pieces, made by a great designer of the 50's).
My maid is very trustable and careful; she comes once a week to clean the flat for 150 R$/work day (on your extra charge).
Bemvindo/a(s)! Perguntem logo como abrir as janela(URL HIDDEN)Favor prestar atenção a areia e agua no piso, moveis frágeis, fechar janelas :
Quando vcs voltam da praia tirem areia dos pés na ducha embaixo (perguntem aos porteiros aonde é). Ao chegar no apto com pés e havaianas molhados, colocar logo as havaianas no balde de aluminium; tirar o costume de banho na ducha e deixa-lo secar dentro da ducha. Não deixar a toalha dos pés molhada no chão, pendurar ela.
Não deixar agua no piso.
Quando tem área varrer.
Ao sair fechar todas as janelas (perguntar à empregada como abre e fecha cada janela e como fecha a veneziana que tem o espelho)
Favor não balançar nas cadeiras, não sentar nos braços das poltronas, não deixar toalha molhada nos moveis. O que é úmido deve ser pendurado na sala de banho.
Se for fumar, faça o com cuidado.
