About Alastair G.
Very widely traveled.Brought up in the Far East and Australia,am now mostly based in the UK. My design work has been featured on magazine covers world-wide. My penthouse in Rio's beach haven of Ipanema is my personal favourite! I am,together with my staff, 100% committed to providing you with the best travel experience possible.
Alastair G. purchased this Apartment in 2006
Why Alastair G. chose Ipanema
Ipanema is almost like a small kingdom set apart.The timeless life style associated with such easy access to such an extraordinary beach is very seductive.Quite simply Ipanema is in a class of it's own.It's where Brazil looks for new trends and is a show place for the nation.It is classic,eternal Rio and the energy is palpable.It is the Rio of your dreams! Rio (a city that,even within Brazil, is the most 'Brazilian' of cities) is also a very culturally rich society with a strong theater tradition,great modern artists,the center of the telenovela and media industries,an extraordinary and diverse musical heritage and a vigorous intellectual history involving great writers and architects.
What makes this Apartment unique
Space, and a tremendous feeling of privacy floating above Ipanema in your own private world. Apart from great style,I think to have the rare combination of 2 entirely different outdoor spaces on separate floors together with contrasting and amazing views, coupled with the location so close to Posto 9 on the beach.All this and being a penthouse awash with natural light allows for an ambiance that is truly special!!

Perfect location, great communication, all the help in a foreign country. Loved it!
This condo is in a fantastic location. Great restaurants, walking distance to Ipanema beach, walking to Lagoa, bikes and scooters easy accessible. The view of Christ the Redeemer, off of the penthouse, balcony! Jacuzzi tub, outside! Organized our rides to and from the airport. Felt perfectly safe. Enjoyed our time, first time in Rio, and loved every moment of it! Thank you!
Wonderful and Cosy Apartment.
Super cosy and nice decorated apartment in top location from a very nice host. Had a great time and would love to come again ! It comes with a parking in the garage . The location is in the center of Ipanema with everything what u need. It made my time in Ipanema more than perfect. I leave a part of my heart here in Brazil. Book it!
Beautiful, hip and comfortable lounge... next door to a school
I'm surprised no one else has said this in their reviews so I'm going to lead with it. This place is amazing but it is very noisy. We absolutely loved our stay and everything about the place is absolutely wonderful, but it is right next door to a very loud elementary school so from early morning to mid afternoon there is constant kid screaming, laughing, playing. If you're out and about doing the tourist thing from the early morning onward this won't be a problem. If you're taking in some of Rio's excellent night life and plan to sleep in, that could be a problem. If you're planning on sticking around the apartment during the day like we did while we were preparing some work, the noise can be absolutely mind numbing. This is no fault of the owner and in fact there are white noise generators in every room in the house.
The balcony is wonderful, amazing views. The place has all the amenities you would need. The internet and wifi worked great. We really enjoyed our stay with the exception of the noise.
I'm sorry your stay coincided with the annual 'Festival Do Esporte'. Carnival is another time best avoided if you wish to have a quiet break.The streets can be jammed with noisy revellers. Most guests rate this central,close to the beach location 10/10. Appreciate your message on leaving that you and Veronica “really enjoyed our stay in your lovely space!”.
Great location, beautiful and spacious apartment. Manager and owner always on top of everything! Would stay again with great anticipation!!!!!
It was a pleasure to host you and your fellow professors for the fortnight you spent in Rio working on your book project.Delighted your stay was both fun and productive!
perfect stay during the month of march in 2018
appartement was pleasant in a good area in the centre of ipanema
Positioned in a calm,residential street canopied with tropical trees adorned with orchids, this is referred to by locals as the 'noble' area of Ipanema. Being to the left of Rua Vinicius de Morais this is seen to be the safest and the most desirable prime area within Ipanema, not being in the 'shadow' of any favela.Known as the 'Beverly Hills of Rio' due to the many telenovela stars who live here. Tom Jobim wrote the classic 'The Girl From Ipanema' song while living in this street in 1962(a plaque commemorates this at no.107). You are exactly parallel to and just 4 blocks from the legendary Post 9 on the beach. 2 blocks from the exciting shopping opportunities on the main thoroughfare of Rua Visc. de Piraja, and just 3 blocks from the Lagoa. Although taxis are plentiful and inexpensive, being so well located means you can walk to all the local culinary,cultural and nightlife attractions Ipanema is so famous for.You are assigned 2 parking spaces within the building which is useful if you hire a car or have Brazilian friends visiting.
