Best location in Ipanema. The apartment is very clean and charmingly furbished. It has a great terrace with a Jacuzzi. Both rooms have a/c and private bathrooms. A very small dog also lives there. Marc is the kindest host, he will provide you with tips and basically everything you need in Rio. The tours with Rita are also very remarkable and fun. We stayed with Marc and then left Rio for ten days and then returned to his place, and it was like coming home. We would only stay at Marcs on our next trip to Rio.

Marc is a great host, most helpful and attentive. His penthouse flat has a fantastic location just a block from Ipanema beach, close to all restaurants and bars the area has to offer. Your host makes sure you know how to behave in Rio, where to go and where not. He sure made us feel at home in the big city immediately, and find out what the beach and neighbourhood was about. We were happy we were also helped arranging transportation from the airport to Ipanema on arrival. Really recommend this place - thanks for having us!

Nous avons séjourné chez Marc pendant 5 jours fin septembre 2013 et nous avons adoré. L'appartement est super, au calme, spacieux, doté d'une très belle déco design et colorée et d'une terrasse avec jacuzzi sur laquelle nous prenions notre petit déjeuner copieux et complet (pain, jambon, fromage, fruits frais coupés, jus d'orange pressé, thé, café etc...). Marc est un hôte génial, nous avions l'impression d'être chez des amis de longue date, il connait très bien Rio et vous donne de très bons conseils sur les lieux à visiter ou les endroits branchés pour sortir et bien manger. L'appartement est impeccable, les chambres très propres et bien équipées. Il est aussi très bien placé, à 30 m de la plage et 100 m du métro et des bus dans un quartier chic et branché où tout y est, boutiques, restaurants, cafés etc...on se sent en sécurité et on n'a qu'une envie REVENIR !!!! Marc, Un grand Merci !!

My friends and I stayed for a week during Nov/Dec this year & were so pleasantly surprised with everything Marcos & his top floor apartment had to offer. Beach bums rejoice, the apartment is perfectly located a block away from the beach. Bedrooms & bathrooms are comfortably spacious & clean and each has air conditioning & cable TV. The shared living rooms, terrace and dining room were colorfully decorated with furnishings from Senegal, France & Brazil - all was just so lovely! Many restaurants and bars nearby. Access to buses from all areas. The popular Sunday Hippie Market is just 1 ½ blocks away (fresh food market during the week). The real gem here however is the host, Marcos. He made our stay in Rio feel like we were visiting old friends. He's so welcoming and gracious. He told us of the many places we should visit and the precautions we should take when partying the night away in Rio (be wary of "good-night Cinderella") but thankfully we always felt safe and never encountered any problems. Marcos was so helpful to us when we wanted to go to Lapa to dance - he even joined us! Almost like our own personal guide but again, he felt like a friend more than anything! We enjoyed dancing together & hanging out at the beach. BTW, he knows ALL the right people at the beach! The best little beach stand (Miriam's) to get your Caipirinha's and beach chairs & umbrellas. Bahiana, a lovely local woman sells amazing little warm empanada style sandwiches. He made a very generous breakfast each morning which consisted of fresh Portuguese bread rolls & various marmalades, ham & cheese, as well as yogurt & assorted fresh fruits daily. We enjoyed his company & the personal attention during our week long vacation. Looking forward to spending New Years Eve in Rio in the next couple of years and know that booking a stay with Marcos at Ipanema Beach will be the first step in planning that vacation! Thank you Marcos! xo Gilda & friends

My friend and I stayed here together (both twenty-something women) and had a wonderful experience. Before coming to Rio my family was concerned about our safety as two women traveling, but this was the perfect place. The neighborhood is extremely safe. Additionally, the owner was so helpful in giving us advise on where to go to be safe. I felt like someone was looking out for me. He also was so welcoming! I did not feel uncomfortable at all coming and going.
