We are ONLY 1 block from IPANEMA BEACH, just minutes from Copacabana. Our Art Deco Villa is in the center of Rio's restaurant & boutique district. We've personally designed all the furniture w/local favela artists & renovated the apt to maintain its 1930s charm. We're a Brazilian/California couple that speaks your language but also gives you a taste of local Culture. We've been featured in Esquire Magazine & Elle as the TOP place to stay in Ipanema.

El alojamiento

OUR PHILOSOPHY: Our home is a space where people can come who don’t speak Portuguese and still feel like a) they live in Rio b) they have someone to take care of them c) and get a sincere glimpse of how real Brazilians live without the touristy gimmicks nor the hassles of this chaotic city. I am a California native who has been traveling/living abroad for 15 years and created what I look for, somewhere you can have personal space, yet still have good conversation over breakfast with a local who speaks your language. I have restored this 3 bedroom colonial villa 1 block from Ipanema Beach, designed all the furniture with local favela artists and embrace local Brazilian traditions including the music playing throughout the day and the homemade breakfast every morning. We don't let you get lost in the Touristy Nonsense....we go to Samba in the streets, we go have beers in local neighborhoods, we make friends with real people. This is a space to share, explore, heal, relax and be inspired. This is your home in Rio de Janeiro.

Ipanema, the world's most interesting beach, is at your doorstep. Everyday you will be woken up by the smell of the ocean, a breakfast of fresh fruit, samba musicians on the sidewalk, capoeira dancers on the beach and the possibility of vibrant memories.

Lauren was an incredible host. She was incredibly flexible and responsive in all communications. Unfortunately, my flight to Rio was significantly delayed changing my itinerary and Lauren was right there to pick of the pieces. She had great knowledge of where to go, what to see, what to eat, and where to have fun. Through her travel agency, booked hang gliding and hiking and these were both incredible. She puts in you in touch with the locals and you get to experience the heartbeat of Rio! Her apartment is beautiful and perfectly located. Will definitely stay again!

This is our second stay here and we love the apartment and Lauren. She makes you feel so at home and is a great resource for places to eat, sights to see, and stuff to do in Rio. The rooms are clean, comfortable, beautifully designed and so close to the beach, shopping, and amazing restaurants. Highly recommended!

We absolutely loved staying with Lauren. She made us feel at home and helped us make our plans, was available to help answer questions if needed and also just sit down and talk and enjoy a Caipirinha. The apt is so beautiful and well decorated. Super comfortable. The bathroom is shared but I didn't even noticed it as it is always so clean. We are actually staying there again in a week and can't wait to see Lauren again. I will definitely stay here again many more times. Very happy to have found this place and met Lauren, whom we consider a friend now! :):) Thank you so much! See you soon!

The place is very well located. Lauren and Val were super helpful, welcoming and responsive to all the questions I had. The flat decoration was great; lots of style! It is on the second floor so street noise can be an issue. There is a "white noise" machine that helps quite a bit. =) Overall, I would recommend the place.
