Besides our apartment being conveniently located for our stay, there were a few complaints. Upon arrival it seemed as though nobody knew we were coming when we were at the front desk. So this took a while to figure out. The gas for cooking was shut off from a lack of paying the bill. When I asked the owner to fix, he was in Dubai and nobody was available to help. We had 1 little electric pan to use. So most of our dinners were eaten out. Wasn't in my budget. Gas turned on 2 days before our stay ended. In one of the bedrooms, there was a huge hole in the wall that was covered on the outside with a thin piece of wood that would flap in the wind at night. There is a pool on the top floor, but no water in it, so don't count on that, and our water filter needed replacing, so we were having to buy bottled water every day. I'm not a big complainer at all and just deal with the situation at hand, but when I rent out stuff, I make sure that I am not out of town, so that if a problem arises, I can immediately fix it. There was no sense of urgency on the hosts part and when asked for a refund because we had to eat out every night, he claimed that we could cook using the one little electric pan we had. So that was our stay!!
We stayed at Arjuna's for 5 nights and had a great time. The apartment is in a great location and a very safe area - within walking distance to Copacabana beach and only a 5 minute walk to the local mall (Rio Sul) where you can grab a taxi. We did notice a lot of taxi drivers had difficulty finding the street name, I would recommend asking Arjuna for more detailed directions to the apartment (or mention Rio Sul mall as a reference point). The apartment was very clean when we arrived and we had plenty of space. The balcony was big, although it would have been nice to have a table and chairs outside to eat meals or relax. The apartment had a fridge, freezer, washing machine and clean sheets and towels which was convenient. Unfortunately the wifi and TV were not working during our stay and although we messaged Arjuna twice we heard no response - it was slightly disappointing not to have a response back from Arjuna and have no working internet during our stay. It was also quite windy while we were in Rio and the windows rattled a lot, especially during the night! The pool on the rooftop is great with fantastic views. The doormen are very welcoming and will help you with any request. Parking is also available which was very helpful for us! Overall, we had a great stay in Rio and enjoyed our time in the area. The best feature of this apartment is definitely the location!
My family had a fantastic week in Arjunas apartment. Location on a quiet road. 30 second to a small supermarket. A 5 minute walks to the very big shopping center Rio Sul (no supermarket). A 15 minute walks to Copacabana beach. 5 minutes by taxi to the Metro. 40 minutes to the airport at noon. Doorman 24 hours (none of them English speaking). Arjunas apartment on the third floor with a very big balcony with a view to the statue of Christ. We spent most of the time on the balcony. ALL necessary things were in the apartment. Two bathrooms and a kitchen including washing machine. WIFI very fast and a big TV. Possible for six people to use the apartment. Fans in all rooms made sure you had the right temperature. On the top floor (14) there was a Barbeque place and two swimming pools. Unfortunately one of the pools had a leak during our stay, so we had to use the small one (50 cm deep). FANTASTIC view from the roof. Even though Arjuna was not present, he solved all our requests via e-mail. That was a very good service. I and my family (wife and two sons 20 and 26) can fully recommend this apartment and we are hoping to come back some time or send some of our friends or colleagues to the apartment.

The fantastic thing about this property is its superb location, 10 mts walk from Copacabana, 10 mts from Sugar Loaf mountain & 2 mts from Rio Sul a major shopping centre which is also excellently connected via public transport, specially buses, with most parts of Rio. There is also a lovely view of Corcovado from the balcony, which at night looks divine. Ideally suited for 4 people for a short stay, the property has a 24 hour concierge, and restaurants, eat outs nearby as well. The furnishing, apart from the massive TV, is a bit ordinary and the layout is unusual with the kitchen behind the entrance door but we had a great time during our stay there even though we were not able to use the building pool due to some repairs
This is a great apartment! It is an easy 10 minute walk to Copacabana beach, the apartment has a large balcony, the bedrooms are a good size and the shower has really good hot water!! The kitchen is very large too and has all you need to cook. Internet is fast. Arjuna was very easy to communicate with, she gave us all the information. The building has 24 hour security, the guards were very friendly and it is a very quiet street. Overall we loved our stay in Rio and we love this apartment.
