A very well equipped kitchen & a real boon to have a washing machine. Great to have air conditioning for the bedrooms & lounge. We felt really at home here & another great advantage was having access to the internet. The reason for our stay was the Paralympics & to support our daughter at the sailing & the location could not have been more ideal being only 5 minutes walk from the team hotel & 20 minutes walk to the ticketed area of the beach. It was also important to be so close to the Catete Metro station as we used the Metro a lot. We felt very safe & secure, especially as there was a concierge on duty & at other times the access was very secure. Easy walking distance to small supermarkets, banks & restaurants. The apartment was very well appointed & catered to all our needs. It was very clean & well maintained & the owner, prior to our arrival was very prompt in answering all our questions, excellent customer service.
