I am about to move into a great 3 bed flat in Ipanema (1 block from General Osario Metro). It is a superbargain (found after several weeks of looking!!). Its fully furnished and has 3 large bedrooms with a great living room, kitchen and other social areas. It has a back garden too!
Everything is in good condition - no need to buy any furniture for the house.
Price is approx R$ 1800 per person including all condos and taxes.
Send me an email if you are interested!
