"I must say that I had a great experience in your apartment during my stay in Rio. The apartment is new, modern, large and spacious. It's absolutely the perfect apartment for a trip to Rio. I felt very welcomed staying at your apartment and you were more than helpful in accommodating requests that I made whether it be how to get cheap calling cards, good recommendations for restaurants or providing a useful tour of the neighborhood. The apartment is centrally located in the heart of upscale Ipanema and is a 5-minute walk to the beach. I will be sure to be staying at your apartment on my next trip to Rio!"

"As a frequent traveler to Rio de Janeiro I have stayed in many Hotel/Apartment residences. So I am very familiar as to what one can expect as far as quality and service. My last trip down to Rio was for New Years,06 and I was fortunate enough to discover "Rio Modern Apartments" a nice addition to the many options one has for accommodations in Rio. I found the Apartment to be located on a great and safe street and very close to everything one would need. It's also located in the South Zone or "Zona Sul" which is considered one of the best neighborhoods in town. As far as the apartment itself, I was very impressed, It was obvious that the apartment had been recently renovated which in Rio is sometimes non- existent. the decor and amenities  were top notch, not to mention high speed internet and of course air conditioning that works! Make sure to add Rio Modern Apartments to your list when traveling to Rio, I'll be sure to stay there on my next visit."

"I have been to Rio more than ten times and stayed at different apartments. After staying at this apartment, I will not stay anywhere else. It is located in a safe and great part of Ipanema(restaurants, banks, stores, etc.) and the beach is just a 3 minute walk away. Most apartments they charge you a lot of money but you feel like you are staying in your Grandma's house since nothing has been updated. Everything in the apartment is state of the art. You will be hard pressed to find something better in this location, with all of the amenities, and the awesome customer serive of Neil who treats everyone like his own family. This is the best place to stay in Rio!!"

"Folks, this place is amazing! A jewel in the heart of Ipanema...this apartment is fully modern, stylishly decorated and perfect for groups of friends or families wanting a relaxing place to stay within walking distance to all of the beaches (Copacabana, Ipanema and Leblon) in Rio. Plus, there are lots of restaurants and excellent local nightlife in the Ipanema neighbourhood, which makes living in this neighbourhood even more exciting!"

"We have stayed in the apartment for a short holiday and I highly recommend it!!!! The apartment is fully equipped (even with sound system in all rooms and baths!!) Perfectly located, very sure (security 24h)beautifully furnished and the attention you will have from Neil is just perfect. If I return to Rio (that I surely will!!!!) I will without doubt stay in the same apartment. Do not look further ..... that's the plce to stay!!!"

"Several friends and I decided to spend a week in Rio last April. We wanted to stay in the trendy (and safe) Ipanema beach area, and wanted a more genuine Rio experience than a hotel could offer. We were fortunate enough to find this contemporary apartment listed on the web and quickly made a reservation. We found the apartment to be very clean and modern, located in a vibrant and safe neighborhood, and the owner (Neil) was very helpful and friendly. He even took time to show us around the neighborhood and give us some pointers. I travel all over the world for work and fun, and can honestly say this one of my favorite accommodations to date. Highly recommended!"

"I stayed nearly 1 year in the 1 bedroom appartment. What can I say, it is easy going, everything is there what one needs, high standard of amenities, ipod connection with loudspeakers even in the bathroom, next door appartment which is just separated by a door within the small one is relatively quiet. The view from the single window is a fairly good one in comparison to the rest of the city as it gives a view on a little hill with water running down which calms down - but with hens on the top making noise from time to time - but one gets used to it very quickly. The best of it is the superb location of the flat - just in the middle of Ipanema! If I hadn't fallen in love with a girl from Paris and started a new venture in Germany I would still live in that flat and would need to give a comment as it would not be available! Have fun and enjoy as I did and stay away when I come back again."

"I had a wonderful experience...the apartment was safe and was easy for me especially being female and alone in Rio...Keep up the good work...I will certainly use your facility any time I am in Rio."

"My partner and I stayed in the 1BR studio for about 16 days in January and had an excellent stay. The flat has every comfort you need including fully functional A/C and internet access. The flat is clean, modern and akin to anything you would find in a hotel, with the added benefit of having a full kitchen (incl coffee machine!)

The best part by far though is the location! you can't ask for a better area. Safe and quiet street. bars and restaurants around the corner, stores/amenities 3 blocks away, beach is 4 blocks away. perfect if you need to nip back to get something!

Neil was a great help in arranging airport transpo and maid and laundry service. Would definitely stay here again."

London, United Kingdom

"For almost a week, I stayed in the adjoining 1 bedroom portion of the unit and my friends stayed in the adjoining (optional) 2 bedroom part.

We were very happy with the apartment. It had almost every amenity you would find at a 4-star hotel.

The building is super chic with the entrance, manned by super nice and attentive 24-hour doormen, quite grand. The street, rua naciemento du silva, in Ipanema is a very short walk from the beach. The location is quite charming (roosters crowing and other familiar Brazilian sounds that occasionally titillate the ears coming from a nearby favella give the comfortable and safe stay a sense of much-appreciated realized authenticity).

It will now become my address when I visit Rio."
