My friend and I spent one week at Jane's two level penthouse apartment in Ipanema. It was our first time in Rio de Janeiro. It was better then advertised! The apartment was spacious, comfortable, safe and had every amenity. The balcony had views of Christ the Redeemer, Sugar Loaf Mountain and Ipanema beach! Next time I'll bring a camera tripod for amazing night time shots. The apartment had four bedrooms and three bathrooms. We each had our own suite. It was located across from world famous Ipanema beach and a 5 minute walk to Copacabana beach. Adjacent to the apartment was a grocery store, many fantastic restaurants and the public square (next to the metro station). On Sunday, the square had the "hippie" craft market and Tuesday was the food market.
I can't say enough about the ideal location and proximity to everything! I'd definitely recommend Jane's apartment!!More
