Where you’ll be

Ipanema, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil


Ipanema is one of the main sights in the city of Rio de Janeiro and is one of the most famous beaches in Brazil for both Brazilian and international tourists. Every year, tourists flock to the traditional neighborhood and its beach.

Ipanema inspired composer Vinícius de Moraes when he released the song Garota de Ipanema, of which Tom Jobim was responsible for the melody.

The neighborhood also boasts some of the best and most traditional bars and restaurants in Rio de Janeiro, and is known for its theaters, cinemas, luxury shops and design shops. Boutiques like Osklen, Lenny Niemeyer, and Farm have ties to the neighborhood. The headquarters of big jewelry stores like Amsterdam Sauer and H. Stern are located in Ipanema. Big international brands like Mont Blanc, Louis Vuitton, and Hermes also chose shops in neighborhood points

In addition to the typical fruit and vegetable fairs in the General Osório and Nossa Senhora da Paz squares, on Sundays the traditional Hippie Fair takes place, selling handicrafts and paintings.

Ipanema is a traditional meeting point for locals and tourists; the beach is used for the practice of various sports. Favorite activities include skiboard surfing, frescobol, volleyball, football, volleyball.

Ipanema Beach is 2.6 km long and the neighborhood is about 42,000 inhabitants. Arpoador, one of the tips of Ipanema, is a surfing paradise. Posto Nve is considered one of the best spots on Rio's beach, frequented by celebrities and young people. A fairly common habit is to applaud the sunset, a custom that launched in the summer of 1968.

During Carnival, several traditional blocks like the Ipanema Band, Friendliness is Almost Love and Lazy Rolle circulates around the neighborhood. The carioca headquarters of the TV Record Network is located in Praça Nossa Senhora da Paz

The name Ipanema refers to the village of São João de Ipanema, today belonging to the municipality of Iperó, in the Brazilian state of São Paulo, where José António Moreira Filho was born (1830-1899), made the second Baron of Ipanema in 1847 (and conde in 1868), José António Moreira Filho invested his capital in the region currently occupied by the Ipanema neighborhood, founding Villa Ipanema.

The development of Villa de Ipanema intensifies from the beginning of the 20th century onwards, the tram lines opened in 1902 make it easier to urbanize the Villa de Ipanema, still a barefoot sand. In 1918, they were erected on Rua 20 de novembro, today Visconde de Pirajá, Colégio dos Franciscanos and Igreja Nossa Senhora da Paz. The landscape project of the sidewalks of Ipanema is the architect and landscape designer Renato Primavera Marinho, in celebration of the fourth centenary of the city.....

Portuguese/English Meu nome é Brux e sou Italiano. Estudei no Instituto de Arte na Italia e na universidade da Ciência do Esporte. Apos me formar, decidi me mudar para a Califórnia, onde eu ganhei um Bacharel em Marketing e fiz um Mestrado em Relações Públicas. Foi chefe do departamento criativo e de marketing da Giorgio Armani em Milão durante 7 anos, e fiz consultorias para outras empresas Italianas e Americanas do luxo. Em 2007 me mudei para o Rio de Janeiro para relaxar. Agora faço consultoria para empresas de moda internacionais que querem entrar no Brasil, para empresas brasileiras na área de imagem e marketing, e para pessoas na área de design de interiores. Comecei em Airbnb em 2010 como guest em São Paulo, e foi nesse momento que decidi que anunciaria meu apartamento que ja alugava por temporada a alguns anos no airbnb. Em Ipanema havia 9 anúncios e no Rio cerca de cem, agora há quase 50.000. Adorei a experiência e tenho acompanhados a trajectória de airbnb com interesse e emoção. Realmente gosto de encontrar meus convidados e dar eles dicas e truques sobre o Rio. Mas nao e' sempre que consigo ... ai minha funcionaria os encontra para mim, ou também deixo os hospedes entrarem através do check-in autônomo. Em 2017, fui convidado a ser Líder do Clube de Anfitriões do Rio de Janeiro, juntamente com outros 2 hosts. Organizamos encontros, ajudamos novos hosts a configurar as próprias listagens ou preparamos listas de ajudas sobre como o usuário pode aproveitar melhor a plataforma. Foi uma experiência muito gratificante que me colocou em contato com a equipe da airbnb no Brasil e me deu acesso a mais informações sobre a empresa e seus acontecimentos. Tem sido uma viagem incrível e uma experiência que mudou minha vida. Estou definitivamente feliz de todas as notícias e novos produtos que airbnb está lançando. ----------------------- My name is Brux and I was born in Italy. I studied in the italian art highschool and Sport Science University. I then moved to California where I gained a bachelor in Marketing and took a Master's in Public Relations. I headed the creative services and marketing department of Giorgio Armani in Milan for 7 years, and I did consultancies for other italian and american companies. I then moved to Rio de Janeiro in 2007 to relax. Now I do consulting for international fashion companies who wants to enter into Brazil, for Brazilian companies in the area of image and marketing, and for privates in the area of interior design. I started on Airbnb in 2010 as a guest in Sao Paolo and decided I wanted to list my apartment that I was renting short term on airbnb. In Ipanema there were 9 listing and in Rio around one hundred, now there are almost 50.000. I really enjoyed the experience and accompanied the airbnb trajectory with interest and excitement. I really like to meet my guest and gives them tips and tricks about Rio. But sometimes I am not able... so my help cheers them for me, or I use a self check in method. Em 2017, I was asked to be Leader of the Host Club of Rio de Janeiro together with other 2 hosts. We organize encounters, help new hosts set up their listing, or prepare how-to-do lists for user of the platform. It has been a very rewarding experience that put me in contact with the airbnb team in Brazil and gave me access to more information about the company and its growths. It has been an amazing trip and experience that changed my life and I am definitely happy of all the news and new products that airbnb is launching.

During your stay

It's very important to me that my tenants sit at ease. For this reason I will always be at a distance from a message but not requesting or disturbing it.

Each tenant has different expectations. There are guests who arrive prepared, with guides, itineraries, and tours reserved. They don't want any interaction. There are others who find it strange if I am not present at check-in, or do not give tips on restaurants or things to do in Rio.

Upon arriving at the apartment I will send you a link with a lonely planet tab from Rio de Janeiro and the link from the official Riotur website.

In addition, I will always be available to give tips, help troubleshoot your trip or to solve something that is wrong in the apartment that I was not aware of.

I travel a lot and I know how important it is to enjoy every minute of our vacation without anything getting in the way. I promise you will be well taken care of....
