Please, make sure you get the correct rates for Special seasons, holidays and special events in town. Sometimes the rates may not be updated in some of the apartments, so please, inquire first.
NOTE: rates vary according to the different seasons.
Bank Holidays, New Year's, Carnival, summer days and Olympics have special rates.
Please, keep this in mind!
Please, inquire before sending reservation requests. This is very important. Most apartments are being advertised on other sites too, unfortunately we do not have a tool to keep all the dates updated in all of them.
I will be glad to help you find the best suited location for you, your travel companions and family.
Warm regards from Rio de Janeiro,
