The owners of the successful Casa Cool Beans Bed and Breakfast in Santa Teresa have now applied their experience to a new option in Ipanema. Rent your own stylish apartment or studio in one of the city's best locations; just one block from Ipanema beach, close to Arpoador and the best sunsets in Rio, and smack in the middle of dozens of great restaurants, bars, and shops. This part of Ipanema is also very gay-friendly. There are four studios and four 1-bedroom apartments, all tastefully decorated with colorful artwork by local artist Paul Freire and quality furniture. Of course nothing is perfect: there is no elevator in the building and there are no kitchens. For breakfast guests receive a voucher to an excellent nearby bakery. Minimum two-night stay. No children under 18.
