As electrifying, colorful and dynamic as the pulse of this exciting city, this penthouse is a dynamic fusion of contrasting textures and bold design detail. Located in the heart of Ipanema’s very best neighborhood, relax in this chic hideaway perched high above the action.Situated along a peaceful leafy residential street, this mid-century style penthouse occupies the top two levels of a modern and architecturally distinguished building. Thrill to the iconic and panoramic views of mountains,the Christ statue and the city below. Recommended and featured in 'Boutique Homes','The Sunday Times' magazine , 'Savoteur' and 'Living Etc' (the biggest selling modern homes magazine in the UK). Twice winner of the Best Private Rental in Rio in the LUX Awards. 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 a 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 famous Mt.Corcovado’s Christ the Redeemer. SPECIAL FEATURES:- include 24 hr. concierge and security,complimentary loan of local mobile phone if required, superfast Wifi throughout,split air units throughout, ,2 LCD HD TVs with cable and multi-region DVD player/ library, curated art collection,Chromecast/Google home are both installed,complimentary Granado soaps,free parking for 2 cars,washing machine and separate dryer and CD player with iPod docking station. The interiors are a fun and colorful mix of elements and period design creating a distinctively Brazilian character. The apartment is located in the same street as former resident ,the legendary “The Girl from Ipanema” composer Antonio Carlos Jobim.Just some of the many artists represented include Aoleo,Oscar Niemeyer,Carlos Sena,Chico Fernandes and Andy Warhol.Furnishings includes designs by Eileen Gray, Florence Broadhurst,Sergio Rodrigues,Vivienne Westwood and Giuseppe Scapinelli. 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 beach and a couple of blocks from the Lagoa and the main thoroughfare, this is the very best of Ipanema. You will love the convenience of being directly parallel and just 350 meters (5 minute walk) to Post 9 on the beach,generally regarded as the absolute apex of Carioca beach culture. Extra Maid Service: Extra maid service is available.A day session(4/5 hours) costs R170.A mini session lasting approx. 2 hours is available for R110.Please make sure you book these,if required, at the time of booking as they can be difficult to arrange last minute.Their duties can also cover ironing,food shopping and child minding.An English speaking babysitter of 20 years experience dealing with 3 months to 8 years is available for R40 per hour,plus taxi fare if required to stay after midnight. Airport pick up service.: we are happy to provide you with a very reliable named driver in a new model, air conditioned saloon car for R140 .He will wait for you at arrivals with a placard bearing your name. I strongly recommend you take advantage of this offer as it helps my management to co-ordinate your smooth arrival at the apartment.It also assures you of a stress free arrival! Payment is direct to the driver.A van with an 8 seat capacity plus luggage is also possible for R220.Great rates are also available for local car tours or trips further afield to Parity or Buzios,just ask! .There is a sofa bench/bed in the 2nd living area that can be utilized as a single bed and 2 spare single futon mattresses that can be placed anywhere.

About the neighborhood
Ipanema is almost like a small kingdom set apart.The timeless life style associated with such easy access to such an extraordinary beach is very seductive.Now safer than ever,quite simply Ipanema is in a class of it's own.It's where Brazil looks for new trends and is a show place for the nation.It is classic,eternal Rio and the energy is palpable. It is the Rio of your dreams!Tom Jobim wrote 'The Girl from Ipanema' while living in this street in 1962 (a plaque commemorates this at no. 107). Although taxis are plentiful and inexpensive being so well located means you can walk to all the restaurants, sights and nightlife for which Ipanema is so famous. Positioned in a calm, residential street canopied with trees adorned with orchids, this duplex penthouse is located in an exclusive area refe...
Getting around
New metro station now open at Praca Nossa Senhora. Buses run frequently from main shopping street of Visconde Piraja. Taxis are plentiful.Uber is very efficient.
