Three of us (single dudes) stayed in the 3 bedroom apartment. The woman, who I presume is the owner, was very nice and attentive. The pool wasn't available during our stay (during Carnaval 2017) and there was no furniture on the balcony. One of the rooms did not have a shower curtain, so every time I took a shower, water splashed all over the bathroom floor. The unit was secure. There was a main gate at the entrance to the street, a second gate that led to our patio and finally a door to access our apartment. The neighborhood is safe and we never felt that our lives were in danger. There are always taxis driving in the area (once again during Carnaval), so traveling around the city was very easy. The unit is located within walking distance to the attractions of Rio Vermelho: the strip mall, the outdoor bar/restaurant area and the beaches. In all, I enjoyed my stay at this unit; however, I probably wouldn't stay there again. Once again, I recommend this for singles and not for kids or couples.
