We rented Villa Didier for a week last July. The first few days were great. As a group of 6 30 somethings, we thought the location was perfect. We were able to walk downtown if drinking. On about the 4th night of our stay, we left for dinner and returned to find our house had been broken into. They stole 3 computers, 3 IPods, 4 cell phones and various pieces mens' clothing and shoes. To top it all off, they even stole our rental car! We contacted the police and local Pedregal security. Language was an issue, and we spent the rest of our vacation at the police station and car rental office filling out paper work. None of our personal belongings were recovered, but luckily the car was found about a week later. In the end, we incurred thousands of dollars in losses.
Don't stay in Pedregal! Every local we talked to about the situation agreed that it was probably an inside job of Pedregal staff / security. Hotels are safer!
