What we like about this property

Bossa Nova! As electrifying, colorful and dynamic as the pulse of this exciting city, this penthouse is a lively fusion of contrasting materials, textures, and bold design detail. Located in the heart of Ipanema’s best neighborhood with thrilling views of the Christ statue and the mountains, it’s a chic hideaway perched high above the action.

 

Description

Situated along a peaceful leafy residential street in the very heart of Ipanema, this mid-century penthouse occupies the top two levels of the building with iconic panoramic views of the Christ statue and the city below. Profiled in The Sunday Times (UK) and winner of the Best Private Rental in Rio in the LUX Hotel and Spa Awards, the apartment epitomizes the spirit of Bossa Nova and actually resides along the same street as former resident and “Girl from Ipanema” composer Antonio Carlos Jobim.

The double height layout means there are areas to share and areas for privacy. The main living and dining spaces feature a balcony overlooking the treeline and streets below along with the fully equipped kitchen and both an en-suite  double bedroom and a smaller en-suite single bedroom. The upper floor features the large en-suite master bedroom and dressing area along with a private sitting room off of the main terrace. Equipped with a jacuzzi and dining table for four, this is the spot for stunning views of the famous Mt. Corcovado’s Christ the Redeemer.

The interiors are a fun and colorful mix of elements and period design with decor and furnishings by Scapinelli, Vivienne Westwood, Florence Broadhurst and Salvador and distinctive Brazilian character. 

Bold, vibrant and unique, this penthouse immerses you into the captivating grandeur of Rio.

ADDITIONAL FEATURES

24 hr. concierge and security. Complimentary loan of mobile phone, Wifi throughout, 2 HDTVs with cable and multi-region DVD player and DVD library, stereo and CD player with iPod docking audio. Housekeeping (additional services upon request) and laundry facilities. Parking for two cars within the building. Optional airport transfers and car hire. 

AROUND

Situated in a calm tree lined residential street referred to by locals as the “noble” area of Ipanema, you are ideally placed just adjacent to Rua Vinicius de Morais in the safest part of the city. Just four blocks from the famous Post 9 on the beach and a couple of blocks from the Lago and the main thoroughfare, this is the very best of Ipanema. The pulsing beat and joie de vivre of overlapping cultures is the charm of Rio, from the vibrant Copacabana on the south side and the twisting density of the favelas, to the dizzying action of downtown and the fashionable coastal beaches, the vibrant rhythms and diversity of the city are captivating. Surrounded by tropical rainforest with the iconic sugarloaf monolith and Mt. Corcovado’s Christ the Redeemer overlooking the city, this world famous town is everything and more.

    I speak French so I will do my best to write in English.

    Stayed there for 6 nights. After reservation, Alastair the owner sent emails about what to do in Rio, what not to do and how to use appliances in his penthouse. Thanks to him because he told me in time that we would need a Visa to come to Rio!! We are Canadians. When we arrived, we met the charming owner Alastair who was staying there the week before, Ellie the manager and Alves the doorman. Those 3 peoples were more than welcoming! So kind, respectful, and honest. They doing their best to make you feel happy. More than our expectations. Very nice human beings!

    The penthouse is wonderful. We felt at home. Warm and glamorous atmosphere! Wonderful decoration.Wow! One cool terrasse and one great balcony. All included. Real flowers everywhere.

    Top location in Ipanema and situated in one of the best and beautiful residential street. Felt secure. Close to the beach, lagoon, restaurants, stores, metro, taxis.

    For the same price of an hotel room beachfront with NO balcony, since we were 2 friends sharing the condo, we got all this, We recommend this place without any hesitation

    Apartment is gorgeous and highly functional (easy to use washer/drier, fully functional kitchen, air-conditioned, good spaces for both together and alone time, etc.). We were traveling to Rio for the first time and, though most of us speak Spanish, we had no Portuguese speakers with us. Alastair and his team made the whole process seamless – his driver (Marcello, who is amazing) met us at the airport, Felipe met us at the apartment, and all were easily accessible via email during the trip. The building and neighborhood feel very safe, and you can walk pretty much everywhere. We were traveling with our infant twins and could not have asked for a better location, especially when one baby got his first fever and we had to spend more time at home than anticipated. Having the outdoor space was great as we still felt we were on vacation, and the air conditioning was critical! We ordered takeout from many amazing local restaurants, and had a great stay. Apartment is extremely clean and well maintained.

    Ipanema! What a location! On my way to the sexiest beach in the world I walked right past the Garota De Ipanema bar (as the ‘Girl from Ipanema’ once did). Walking in the other direction to the Lagoa I watched the Cariocas work out in next to nothing,then round the lagoon to the exquisite botanic gardens. As soon as it became just too much I retreated back to my own split level penthouse.i felt like I was in an Austin Powers movie where I was the star(including Florence Broadhurst wallpaper which made this Aussie feel very much at home). All the creature comforts were there.The kitchen is fully functional and well equipped and the roof top terrace gives a bull’s eye view of the Christ statue while sitting back in the Jacuzzi with a caprioska in hand. The 2nd balcony and the living area on the lower level meant the friends I shared with had their own separate space when they wanted it. The 24 hour concierge was helpful and reassuring. Lastly thanks to the owner for his insider’s guide to making the mostof his apartment and of this very enticing part of Rio.Believe me…this place is the tops!

    Having lived in Rio I am all too aware how difficult it can be to find rentals in a good location with design flair at a fair price.My search is now over.For the same price as a mid-range corporate hotel box room you can instead be free to luxuriate in 5 times the space in your own personal playground high in the sky in a ritzy neighbourhood of Ipanema.From the moment we arrived at the the airport we were in great hands from Marcello the driver,the manager Felipe and the delightful door staff.The penthouse is very centrally located in what has to be one of the world’s most beautiful tree lined residential streets(orchids hanging down within arms reach).I’ve noticed many vacation rentals are located in the more hectic,edgier and less desirable vicinity of General Osorio Square(not to mention a surprisingly high number that claim to be in Ipanema but on closer inspection are in fact in Arpoador or even South Copa!).It really does make a difference to walk everywhere and relax as a local Cariioca in the serene and absolute heart of magical Ipanema.The penthouse has a sense of character and fun,not to mention a stylishness that is inviting yet doesn’t try too hard.Kept noticing detailing like the wallpaper by Vivienne Westwood,fabulous heavy linens on the most comfortable bed I’ve ever slept on and art works of substance that reflect real discernment.Loved being on 2 levels so you can be with friends when you choose,yet still have the option to retreat to your own private space.None of the photos will ever do full justice to the thrill of the ever changing magnificent panoramic views as my friends and I dined al fresco on the dreamy terrace! I could go on but all in all this represents spectacular value for living the high life in this most exciting of cities!

    We had such a fantastic time in your gorgeous apartment. We didn’t want to ever leave, the location is perfect, it’s very spacious and the decor is amazing. Rio is such a fantastic city and Carnival was one of the best experiences. I will definitely recommend Rio as a destination and your apartment as accommodation to anyone looking for a great holiday!

    This apartment is the best one by far I have rented in 5 years and I enjoyed it very much. Also it was the best service I have had from a rental service. I was delighted to find out that the 2nd bedroom had a Queen bed and was good sized.I was also delighted that both bathrooms have walk in showers.I am 61 and have learned that tub showers
    scare me.But the size of the place was much better than I expected.My son joined me for 4 days and it was perfect. I loved the view off both decks and the fact there were balconies off both. Very nice. Of course I liked the top best and would never have thought a cactus would look so good there. The Jacuzzi has the distinction of being the first Jacuzzi or pool I paid for that worked. All the appliances in the kitchen worked well. Maid service was great. I hope to get back in the next year and if so,would definitely like to rent this place again. I really did enjoy it. The doormen there were very nice and were all struggling to learn some English. All in all it was a very nice trip!
