Nice one bedroom apartment at Barra da Tijuca beach!

Perfect location for a beach holiday (right on the beach, supermarket in the house, bus stop outside the door, etc).
Apartment is perfectly suitable for couples holidays (1 bedroom + living room) is well equipped and has a large balcony.
Marcela was very helpful and even organized the pick up from / to airport. Thank you!

Stunning ocean view two bedroom apartment!!

The department is better than the photos appear. The kitchen is made new. The location is excellent. It has a private shuttle service (free) that takes you to different beaches (and malls), which in practice represent a great benefit in a city that, like any big city, has problems with traffic. Rio is gorgeous, beautiful. In conclusion, in a highly recommended option.

Apartment with balcony just 2 minutes from Copacabana beach

We stayed for two weeks during Carnaval 2013 and we couldn't have asked for more. The apartment is 2 minutes from the beach and 5 minutes from the subway. There are loads of shops and bars within a 5 minute radius. Marcela was an excellent host who was really attentive and gave us everything we'd need to enjoy our stay.

Apartment with balcony just 2 minutes from Copacabana beach

Я была в Рио в первый раз и в первый раз пользовалась услугами сайта Wmdu. Результат превысил все мои ожидания!! Марсела - милая удивительная замечательная девушка и очень гостеприимный хозяин!! она нас встречала, как родных! :) абсолютно во всем шла навстречу всем нашим просьбам и оказывала всяческую помощь - например, подключила Wi-Fi перед нашим приездом, подарила нам подробную карту города и всё рассказала. где чего и почём и как лучше :) разрешила нам остаться в квартире до вечера (до нашего вылета домой), а не до 12 дня, как положено. И даже вызвала такси в аэропорт по нашей просьбе, и прочее, и прочее :)
о квартире - я очень долго выбирала ей по разным критериям. И оказалось, что квартира Марселы - это действительно идеальный вариант для нас! Очень милая и уютная, мы чувствовали себя в ней, как дома! :) и расположение у неё идеальное! всё рядом! пляж, метро... и даже кондитерская под боком - со свежайшими шикарными булочками и кексами к завтраку :))
Определенно, если я соберусь снова в Рио, то только к Марселе!! и всем друзьям буду советовать!!
Unfortunately I can't tell about my impressions so vividly in English as in Russian. In brief, Marcela is really perfect host!!!!!!! and our apartment was most perfect for us!! we felt ourselves like at home! :) and have to admit the location of this apartment very cool also!!
I'd like to come back to this place. And I'll be advising my friends :)
Thanks to Wimdu and Marcela! They have helped to make my brazilian travelling unforgotten!! :)
