“Obrigada For Our Stay At The Villa”
Reviewed 22 September 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We were fortunate to stay at The Villa Aug. 21-26, 2014. We went to Rio to attend our nephew's wedding. The young couple had the good fortune of having their wedding at The Villa.

The Villa is a beautiful mansion style property located on a gated, quiet street. It's 1 block from public transportation, and a 5 minute walk to the famed Copacabana Beach. It's within walking distance of restaurants, shopping, and grocery stores.

The Villa has 4 floors with the 1st floor consisting of the living room and dining room, a library, a half bath, and huge, modern chef's kitchen. The 2nd floor has 3 bedrooms, each with its own bathroom. The 3rd floor houses a pool, lovely gardens, a barbeque grill, birds, and 2 cabanas with a shared bath. A rooftop duplex cottage with its own bath is on the 4th floor.

The architecture and decor of The Villa make it feel like a restored country estate with a French flair. Amazingly, the ceiling opens to let in the night sky and stars.

The Villa's owner, Michael, is a jack of all trades and master of all. He's a dentist, and a fabulous chef. He also designed the redo of The Villa, creating a charming retreat in the heart of the city.

The Villa has a terrific staff that comes in each morning to clean and prepare a wonderful buffet breakfast, which is included in your room rate.

Michael, his Brasilian staff, and several of his friends from New York prepared a wonderful wedding feast. On Friday night the huge center island in the kitchen was covered with all the groceries necessary for the 65 guest wedding taking place on Sat. night. By the time we went downstairs to the 1st floor which had been transformed into the wedding venue, the kitchen was filled with delicious chicken, salmon, and beef dishes along with sides, appetizers, a bar, dessert, and wedding cake .Everyone enjoyed themselves at the wedding, which included samba dancers and a DJ duo as entertainment.

Many thanks to Michael, Christian, Rob and the rest of the gang for a very memorable stay in Rio.

“Gorgeous, perfectly-located property from which to see all that is Rio”
Reviewed 25 July 2014 for a stay in May 2014

This property is an amazing place to stay in Rio. Its location cannot be beaten. It's just a three block walk to Copacabana beach. It's situated on the corner right across from the Siqueira Campos subway station, and taxis were plentiful on the area streets, making it easy to get to far-flung parts of town very easily. All of the major sights of the city were
easily accessible to us. Christ the Redeemer, Pão de Açúcar, Copacabana and Ipanema beaches, and the nightlife of Rio Scenarium in Centro are all a short walk, cab, or train ride away. Within a block in any direction, you can find amazing restaurants, fantastic juice bars, grocery stores, and good shopping.

The property itself is visually stunning, expansive, and a perfect home away from home. Each of the private bedrooms has a unique character, based on meticulous design, exquisite decor, and construction. The rooms are spread throughout the villa in such a way as to give privacy to members of even a large party renting the property. The villa's staff maintain the property in beautiful, immaculate condition. The villa is located on a private,locked walkway off the main street, making the property both safe and quiet. While just steps from the vibrant city, one feels secure and secluded while in the villa itself. I cannot imagine a better location from which to set out to see the sights of Rio de Janeiro. I would recommend this property to anyone looking to have the perfectly
situated base for exploring all that there is to see there, and hope very much to have an opportunity to visit again!.

“Rio at its finest”
Reviewed 9 December 2013 for a stay in December 2013

The Villa in Rio is a spectacular example of the best Brazil has to offer. The home is grand, displaying the finest decor with attention paid to every detail. There is space to relax on every level. The kitchen has a large island that doubles as a gathering place for guests and food preparation center. The living room, dining room, and den, also on the first floor, offer lots of places to relax and join in conversation. The living room has a glass ceiling that opens two floors above to allow in fresh air and natural light. The third floor has an open air pool and lounging area to enjoy the warm Brazilian sunshine. Bedrooms are on both the second and third floors, all of which have sitting areas and private baths. The beds are extremely comfortable and the towels are plush!
The house manager, Adan , arranged all of our tours and transportation. I don't think we missed a single thing in Rio thanks to him.The rest of the house staff takes care of every detail. If you want the best in Rio, this is the place to choose for your Brazilian vacation!

“The villa in Rio provided the perfect home base for our group of 12 for four days of relaxing, touring the sights and sp”
Reviewed 4 December 2013 for a stay in November 2013

Booking accommodation for four couples and four young adults was a bit risky but this was the ideal solution. We all had lots of private space and were able to connect in the beautiful kitchen every morning to start our day.
Adan and the staff were incredible and very helpful. We even had a fabulous party one night and our guests couldn't believe how wonderful everything was right down to the china and glasses! Although we had done a fair bit of cleaning up before bed, the next morning the staff arrived and cheerfully helped with what was left. They are lovely.
The location is excellent and a very short walk to Copacabana Beach, good shops, restaurants and transit. Taxi drivers did not always recognize the address though so having a map with us, helped them find the right street.
There was a slight problem with leaky air conditioners in a couple of rooms but Adan was there daily sorting it out.
We would definiely book this again for a group and highly recommend it.
Thank you for sharing your beautiful property, Michael, Adan and Cristian.
