An impeccably decorated, spacious two-bedroom apartment located in the Arpoador neighborhood (the Ipanema side of the headland separating Copacabana and Ipanema) with panoramic views of Ipanema Beach, Leblon Beach, and Morro Dois Irmãos (Two Brothers Hill).

Located on the beachside of the main road, the apartment provides an uninterrupted view of the ocean, a rarity in Rio, and is perfect for watching surfers hit the waves on Ipanema beach. The beachfront location also helps to cancel out any traffic noise thanks to the ocean breeze, a benefit many other apartments miss out on

The apartment is located on the 5th floor of a portered building, with elevator access that arrives at a semi-private entrance hall (there are just two apartments per floor) covered in mosaic tiles and decorated with a festive beach mural. The interior has an overall feeling of light and space, and displays a vibrant collection of contemporary Brazilian art.

There are two ensuite bedrooms, a fully equipped kitchen covered in original white ceramic tiles, and a large open-plan living/dining room with white marble floors and walls (*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 living area has high ceilings and 18-meter wide panoramic windows, making for a wonderfully bright space in which to not only admire the incredible view of the beach, surfers and islands, but also to enjoy the calming sound of the ocean.

The villa works equally well for groups of friends or families with children of all ages.

"The apartment was perfect for two couples and the location was "top ten" among our travels. Nete was lovely to us and you were so helpful in welcoming us to the apartment and booking restaurants. Our guides, Marcello and Patricia, were top quality.” - CF, USA

Area description

Rio needs little introduction, and we are very experienced in working with guests to ensure that they enjoy the Marvelous City as much as possible. All guests receive the BBH Rio Guide, which includes up-to-date tips on where and what to do, as well as the very latest on restaurants and bars in the city. We have excellent tour guides available who aim to guarantee that you have the best experience possible during your time in Rio, as they would for their own family and friends.

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. The neighborhood gained worldwide fame as the subject of the Brazilian song, "The Girl from Ipanema".
