A stylish & spacious duplex penthouse, two blocks from the ocean in the heart of Ipanema. This luxurious urban nest has a lower floor with lounge, large bathroom, dining area, kitchen & balcony, upstairs is the master bedroom complete with kingsize bed & ensuite bathroom, as well as a 50m2 roof terrace.

ADVICE ON HOW TO GET HERE FROM THE INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT (GIG).
I would recommend using the yellow Aerocoop taxi service. The stand is outside the terminal building to the right. It should be easy to spot.

On the meter, it would cost you around R$70 to get to Ipanema. Don't agree a fixed fare with the driver (I don't think they would), they should use the meter.

Just inside the terminal building close to the taxi stand, they should have a little yellow booth. There, you should be able to pay an official fixed rate for the fare to Ipanema. I think it is R$80, so only slightly more.

I strongly advise not taking the big blue buses. They cost R$13,50 per person and take two hours, sometimes more (and then you have to walk two blocks from the beach with luggage).

The taxi will take about 35-40 minutes in good traffic.

I always ask guests to send me their flight number, so that I can check that it does actually arrive on time online. And also to please confirm how they will travel to Ipanema from the airport.

If you're taking a taxi, I'll meet you at the flat 90 minutes after the plane lands. If you take the bus, I'll meet you 3 hours after landing.

Other things to note
PLEASE NOTE that the rate is inclusive of everything except for electricity which is charged separately. Brazilian electricity prices have increased by 75% since November 2014 and, to avoid having to increase our rates accordingly, we feel the fairest way is to keep it separate. We take a meter reading on check-in and on check-out and charge exactly the value per KW/h as charged by the energy company LIGHT. Air-conditioning units are what use the most energy, so we would encourage guests to switch them off when they are out of the apartment. Brazilian electricity prices are among the highest in the world (50% higher than the US average) but with normal use guests can expect to pay around R$20 (twenty Brazilian reals) per day in the summer. In the winter, if the amount is very low (less than R$100) we will usually waive payment.
