Property Description

This beautiful, fully equipped two-bedroom apartment (private home) with 13 ft. ceilings and three full-sized beds is newly constructed and, at about 500 feet above sea level in the Cantagalo Favela, offering spectacular panoramic views of Ipanema and Leblon, Two Brothers Mountain (Dois Irmãos), Gavea Rock (Pedra da Gavea) and Pedra Bonita (where the hang gliders take off). All this is only about a 15 min. walk down to either Ipanema or Copacabana beach and a seven minute walk to the Ipanema Metro Station (Sa Ferreira Entrance).

The altitude is high enough that you probably won't need to use the air conditioners and you can leave the windows open while you sleep since there are no mosquitoes up here (rare in Rio!). It is an excellent choice for the more adventurous, athletic and culturally aware traveler seeking more than a beach vacation, wanting to interact more with locals and see how people live here. All this is possible as this apartment lies at the top of the Cantagalo "favela" just behind Ipanema beach, a bustling neighborhood where everyone seems to know each other and kids are always at play in the alleyways. On weekend nights, spontaneous "funk" dance parties frequently occur on the main road leading up to the apartment building.

Until just a few years ago, this neighborhood was completely off limits to outsiders. Today, the neighborhood is a very safe place since the government instituted a "pacification" program complete with a new police station right next door to the building. Americans, Canadians, South Africans, Chileans, and numerous Europeans have stayed at the apt. without incident. There’s even a bank branch up here now and numerous small shops selling everything from bread to beer to eyeglasses. Many foreigners stay in this neighborhood, and a group of them renovated an apartment nearby as a nightclub.

To reach the apartment from Copacabana, you can walk up the road or take the VW shuttle bus (R$3.50) or ride on the back of a mototaxi (R$3.50). From Ipanema, you can walk up the road or take the Ipanema Metro Elevator Tower up to the neighborhood and walk the rest of the way, or, during weekdays, take the “Brizolão” education center elevator that takes you from the Ipanema street level right to the base of the apt. building! From there, it’s several flights of stairs to reach the fourth (top) floor where the apartment is located. Hence, this apartment is best suited to more “athletic” travelers who don’t mind walk-ups. The view, the cool breeze and the exciting, more edgy nature of the neighborhood definitely makes the effort worthwhile.

The apartment itself has wireless internet, a 42” LED TV that can connect to your notebook via HDMI, DVD player, an Onkyo stereo system, a wireless HP inkjet printer, a telephone and a fully equipped kitchen with gas stove, microwave, toaster oven, frig, washing machine, etc. A taxi can be arranged to pick you up at the airport for approximately R$120 and will deliver you to the base of the building.

PLEASE NOTE: special rates and conditions apply for special events such as Christmas/New Years, Carnival, Easter and the World Cup.

Milvia is a wonderful host. She is there for anything you need. The location in the Favelas is quite far up the hill but not too much of a long walk to reach Ipanema beach. The neighbours are wonderful & everyone is very welcoming. I would definitely recommend staying with Milvia - fantastic!

Milvia's place was a very good experience! we were afraid of the favela a little bit in the beginning, but if you spend a few days there at least you realise how amazing it is. the neighborhood is not super safe, as we heard gun shots, but the flat is really next to a police station. its very lively, exactly what we were looking for! its surely not easy to get up there, but definitely worth it, and you can always take the motor taxis!

My son and i stayed at Milvia's Apartment to experience the 3 weeks of the Rio 2016 Olympic Ganes in August and from that point of view the Apartment suited us fine as we left early every morning and did not return til late every late. Milvia made arrangements to ensure we were met on arrival and she was available during our stay if we had any questions or problems, she was very helpful and she also arranged for a taxi to take us to the Airport at 2.30am at a fair price.The Apartment was nicely presented and the views from the bedrooms are great but the price of having a great view is that you are occupying an elevated position. Even with a good level of fitness my son and i increasingly found the daily walk up the generally very steep road and then the flights of stairs 'challenging', especially when carrying shopping at times when the minibus had finished for the day and it was not always practical to use the motorbike taxis. The Flavella neighbourhood is totally different to what we are used to and the community has a totally different routine and lifestyle to ours with the playing of loud music, general shouting, dogs barking and even a cockerel crowing at all hours of the day and night being their 'normal'. We felt safe at all hours of the day and night but we did 'dress down' to avoid drawing undue attention to ourselves. The Apartment offered good value for money and overall we generally enjoyed the experience.

After more than two weeks in the apartment of Milviana I can say I would like to come back. The apartment is located high up in Favela Cantagalo. The favela seems an adventure, but I have always felt safe. The path up and down through the favela is a good workout for legs, butt and circulation. ;-) Up on the hill there is always a fresh breeze and a wonderful view of Ipanema. The apartment is big enough for two couples or a family with children. It is well decorated and there is everything you need. Milviana greeted me with fruit, snacks and a stocked refrigerator. I met her twice. She is a very friendly, helpful hostess. The whole neighborhood is nice. Portuguese is a plus, but I speak it well hardly. Obrigado por tudo e adeus Milviana!

Hemos estado en el apartamento de Milvia durante 10 días en el periodo de vacaciones y fin de año. La verdad es que hemos estado estupendamente y además Milvia dejó el apartamento muy limpio y con algunos detalles. Tanto la descripción del apartamento como las fotos y los comentarios de otros huéspedes son exactamente como es en realidad, un hogar muy familiar y cómodo donde pasar unas vacaciones. El barrio se sitúa a unos 10 minutos de la playa de Copacabana y muy cerca también de Ipanema, por lo que su localización facilita muchísimo alcanzar las partes más turísticas de la ciudad. En resumen, el apartamento está en un barrio humilde y muy seguro, con presencia de la policía y siempre mucha gente subiendo y bajando las calles. No hemos tenido ningún problema y volveríamos a repetir la experiencia sin duda alguna. Lo único que recomendamos es no mostrar a la gente pertenencias como móviles, cámaras de fotos, joyas... en toda la ciudad, no solamente en el barrio. Es decir, pasar lo mas desapercibido posible.

The place has great views and is well priced. It is hard to get to though and will required a bit of Portuguese. However as a foreigner, my Brazilian relatives did not recommend me staying in a Favela, especially us wanting to explored the night life of Rio.

The listing of the apartment was incredibly accurate great apartment all the amenities that people need. On a budget fit the purpose of our trip to Rio. I must warn you that getting to the apartment takes some luck and Portuguese will be crucial to making it to the apartment quickly and efficiently. With that said, I must inform you the amount of walking you will do if you do not take the moto taxi or the white van is A LOT located near a children's center and police safety and danger are both extremely apparent. Miliva and I met once communicated via email. Once you arrive at the bottom of the hill. Everything is great taxis food the beach. On a budget great spot but I will also say do not attract attention to yourself with flashy stuff because you are around people who live a harder life than the gringo. I enjoyed my stay but my knee didn't lol beautiful views quiet & loud neighborhood but you still get peaceful sleep. Thanks for allowing me to stay in your house and my flight out of Rio is running late so she allowed me to stay a bit longer which was truly appreciated.

I’m originally from Minas Gerais State near the border with Bahia State and my family moved to Rio over 20 years ago. I come from a big family (we were originally 10 children!), all in Rio now (plus cousins!), and we help each other out a lot and usually get together on special occasions. I work in Rio's largest medical laboratory processing samples sent to the lab from a network of clinics in town. I recently started college (in Ipanema) and am studying to get my bachelor’s degree in business. The money I earn from renting my apartment I use to pay for college (we don’t really have student loans here). I’m very independent and hard working and everything I have, including my apartment, I’ve achieved pretty much on my own. I like action and suspense movies and dancing and I'm very social, so I have many friends from school and from work. I especially like plants and have many potted plants in front of my door. Although my English is limited, I have someone here who speaks fluently and is helping me with all aspects of my apartment rental, so feel free to contact me in English. I look forward to meeting you when you visit and will be happy to give you some suggestions of things to see or do while in Rio!
