About Patrick

A french man living between Paris, Los Angeles and Rio de Janeiro.

There are many expatriates living in this neighborhood, the south zone (Zona Sul in Portuguese), where the best apartments are located.

I chose to live in Arpoador, which is the part where Copacabana meets Ipanema. This allows my guest to go from one area to the other in a few minutes.

I just bought this new apartment of 2,500.00 square feet and rebuilt it, with all the modern amenities, hard to find in Brazil, like silent air conditioning, sound proof windows, modern baths etc.

Patrick purchased this apartment in 2010

Why Patrick chose Rio de Janeiro

Very exclusive location: nothing between the beach, the ocean and the apartment windows!

An apartment of 2,500.00 sqf with 3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, a maid service every day during the week, a very efficient air conditioning and a comfort quite rare in Rio. A very quiet building with only one apartment per floor and even a garage underneath, for a rented car or when friends come to visit. Metro and buses are nearby, with taxis available day and night.

What makes this apartment unique

New apartment, large (2,500.00sqf), each room has a King size bed and its own bathroom, facing the ocean and the beach, in the best location in Rio: Copacabana. Daily maid's service helps to create the perfect vacation.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Great apartment in Copacabana with a view to the beach and ample space to live.

Hugs beds, new bathrooms, efficient air conditioning...

Everything is new in this apartment in a very quiet building: we never met anybody there, beside the 24/7 doormen.

Étonnant appartement: tout est neuf, tout fonctionne, il est immense, le personnel de maison est aux petits soins pour nous... On se croirait en Suisse, pas au Brésil où nos expériences passées ont été un peu décevantes.

Ici, le soleil brille à l'extérieur et il n'est pas gâché par des conditions de logement insupportables.

Avoir un étage à soit est un grand luxe que nous avons beaucoup apprécié, dans ce petit immeuble très calme et bien surveillé par une armée de concierges qui se relaient 24h sur 24.

L'immense balcon qui enserre l'appartement permet de profiter de l'extérieur pour des petits déjeuners avec vue mer!

Le service quotidien de ménage nous aide aussi à être complètement en vacances et à oublier le quotidien. La folie des habitants de Rio fait le reste :)

Amazing, Superb, Beautiful, Can I use the word Amazing again

  • 5 of 5

My stay at Patrick's was truly amazing. Every thing you could possibly think of, Patrick was able to accomodate down to supplying a cell phone during our stay. The location was prime. In the heart of everything to include food, subway, shopping, transportation......

I don't know how Patrick is able to rent the place at such a low cost and still provide such superb amenities. It baffles me but I was beyond elated that I was fortunate enough to stay there. Looking forward to doing it again.

Superbe appartement pour des vacances à Rio

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé une semaine merveilleuse dans cet immense appartement avec vue sur la mer et une décoration très actuelle.

3 chambres et 3 salles de bains, donc pas de problèmes pour prendre sa douche le matin; une femme de ménage tous les jours pour nous éviter les corvées; la mer devant nous; plein de petites attentions, comme des savons et des shampoings locaux, une machine Nespresso pour le café, un téléphone portable à notre disposition.

Appartement parfait pour des vacances sans souci dans le meilleur quartier de Rio, entouré de magasins et de restaurants.

Fortement recommandé.

You'll be impressed, as I was, by this apartment: clean, huge, very functional, near the beach, but also close to shops and transportation: the ideal location between Copacabana and Ipanema.

The maid service every day helped also a lot, since we basically had a hotel service, in a much bigger accommodation, for the price of a simple room in that sought after area.

Highly recommended.

Amazing Luxurious Apt w/ Every Detail Covered!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed in two of Patrick's (the owner) apartments the week prior to our "Big Fat Brazilian Wedding", along with a few of our close friends and family. To say we were amazed when we walked into the apartment would be an understatement. This place is immaculate, top-notch luxury and you simply cannot find a better deal in Rio. Premium furnishings, state-of-the-art technology, and breath-taking views are just a few of the details that made this apartment so memorable. Patrick has clearly spent a lot of time and money investing in this place, so if you do come stay, please take care of it! Next time we visit Rio, I'm going to try to get this spot again - 100%. A+++++ 5-star!

Quick anecdote that I think is worth mentioning- when we arrived to the apartment, my (then) fiance and I realized I had left my laptop bag in the taxi (along with my laptop, iPad, $1000, medicine, etc etc). Needless to say, I was freaking out. Anyway, we headed back to the airport in hopes of trying to find the taxi driver and while we were en route, we got a call from one of my friends who was already at the apt informing me that my laptop bag had been returned. Needless to say, I was immensely relieved and the first thing I asked my friend was "did you guys give the driver a tip?" "No we didn't, but the owner Patrick gave him like $20 for you" Patrick never as much as even told me that he had done such a thing, much less ask for me to reimburse him for the $20. He did it not for recognition, but b/c it was the right thing to do. He didn't realize it at the time, but in so doing, he gained a ton of respect and loyalty from these gringos!

Amazing property, location, and owner! Thanks so much for the memories, Patrick! God bless!

Modern and huge

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is just amazing: it's enormous with its 3 bedrooms and bathrooms, 4 beds, including 3 King size beds. Every detail was very well thought: down to the alarm clock in each bedroom, the hair dryer in each bathroom, the soaps and shampoos provided to us, the triple living room, the huge terrace around the apartment...

The fact that we are alone on the floor helps also to create a real sense of luxury.

We could also have used the underground car park.

We had a cell phone at our disposal.

And the maid every day!

That was quite an experience, 5 stars hotel-like, but at a very reasonable rate, with none of the last minute surprises (wi-fi, taxes, service etc.) that hotels like to add to the bills.

Very friendly neighborhood: Copacabana is a beach town in the middle of a gigantic city. You will find right at home in this "South Zone" of Rio de Janeiro, full of restaurants, bars and, of course, several miles of beaches.

The apartment is in Copacabana but very close to Ipanema, which can be reached on foot in 10 minutes max.

I also require, when guests arrive, a security deposit of US$850.00, in case of damage to the apartment. It’s only an authorization on a credit card, like when people rent a car, and it would never be debited before we had a chance to talk about it.
