Post-lockdown and during our own kitchen renovations, we booked Hapa Hapa for 5 weeks. Gauri and Vineet were super efficient and helpful from the outset. Our check in was smooth and any issues were resolved immediately - they were always a text/phone call away. The house is perfect with Asian influences and modern bathrooms/kitchen. Of course, the piece-de-resistance, the view is expansive and breath taking - watching the whales pass by is magical. We were lucky enough to see about 50 dolphins enjoying the surf at one point. I am an avid cook and the kitchen is well equipped and a great Webber BBQ. The fire place and jacuzzi are added bonuses and positioned to compliment the ocean views. Copa is geographically facing east, but the cleverly designed house has a lovely garden which is drenched in sun in the afternoons – the dogs loved it! We had the most magical time at Hapa Hapa and was the perfect setting to get engaged! Will definitely be back – sooner rather than later I hope!
PERFECT SPOT TO RELAX
“We headed up for a girls weekend and had a great experience in this gorgeous beach house! The house is ultra modern and has an AMAZING kitchen - ultra handy as we had 4 girls cooking and baking together. The living room looks onto the beach and opens to an outdoor spa. We gave this a miss as it was freezing while we were up there, but I can imagine it being a perfect spot to relax in summer. Thanks for a great weekend Gauri!”

THE HOUSE IS STUNNING
"We stayed at this lovely little house in Copacabana for a week over Christmas. I could not have picked a more perfect place. The house is stunning - every room is of a very high quality & to have *that* epic view AND the hot tub too was the icing on our cake. The beach is great for dogs too. Would thoroughly recommend this house & will definitely be coming back again. Thanks Gauri!”

"We headed up for a girls weekend away. We couldn't believe our luck when we walked inside! All rooms are completely renovated with beautiful decor. The main bedroom's open bathroom was by far a standout! But what we enjoyed the most was the new front decking with the hot tub overlooking the spectacular view. We spent hours with a bottle of wine and crackers just relaxing and looking out over the whole of Copacabana beach! Couldn't have picked a better location and we will most definitely be back again soon! Thanks for being such a great host, Gauri!"
