THIS APARTMENT IS THE BEST VALUE IN RIO!
Dear visitor to Rio de Janeiro,
You will feel very comfortable in our gorgeous 2-bedroom ocean view Copacabana apartment.
Why are we so sure about it?
Because we love to stay in this apartment also, when it is not rented to you. We made sure that our renovation added all the amenities needed for ultimate comfort: Jacuzzi, bar, computer workspace with high speed internet connection, three plasma TVs with cable TV, a full home entertainment system, and much more.
We gutted the whole place and re-built it from the ground up. Example: No cheap and noisy window air conditioners. We have three ultra quiet high capacity wall mounted air conditioners.
And then we mulled over the color scheme--and came up with the cool elegance you see in the pictures. You will feel cozy and comfortable!
We spent way too much money on this apartment--living up to the motto that your place away from home should be even better than your home--and we know we have succeeded here.
We really hope that there will be SOME gaps between the rentals, so we can enjoy our wonderful place also....

Hi, I'm Andreas and I welcome you to stay with us in Rio.
Andreas Lemperg purchased this apartment in 2007
Rio de Janeiro is the most beautiful and vibrant city in the world. Many visitors to Rio book their next trip to Cidade Maravilhosa before they depart.
It's a normal neighborhood, with restaurants, bars, grocery stores etc. right there. The building has approximately 90% local residents and only 10% rentals. It's 50 yards to the best section of Copacabana beach. It's a big city neighborhhood with all services imaginable, yet our location is quiet and tranquil.
Nice to hear from you.
Yes, please copy and paste my comment to your webpage. There is no reason for not telling people how nice your place is in Rio.
I want to commend you for not being too greedy by pricing it right, so people like me can afford 2 weeks stay in Rio, and enjoy the charm of the city and it's surrounding.

We spent four nights in this apartment and had a wonderful time! Having a nice, comfortable, updated place to stay was a big relief, especially after a long day of sightseeing. The kids had their own bedroom and TV. Minutes from the beach , restaurants, groceries, pharmacy, and a 10 minute walk to the metro, this apartment worked out very well for us. We cooked a few times and did our laundry. What made it stress-free was the knowledge that you could reach someone (Peter) if you had a question or needed something. Andreas was very responsive before we got there. He and Peter arranged for airport transfers and we had no problems getting to and from the airport. Overall, a wonderful experience!
We spent a month in this apartment and were totally comfortable and felt at home. It is amazing how close grocery stores, a bank, the beach and public transport were. We found our way around the city and when we had a question Peter was always available through WhatsApp. Everything went smoothly just as they had said. We would recommend this property wholeheartedly.
We are four adults who had the opportunity to spend six nights in this apartment and thoroughly enjoyed it. It is located between posto 5 and 6 on the Copacabana which is an excellent location to access the beach, Ipanema beach, the night market and the Copacabana fort. Rio has more taxis than cars so getting anywhere in the city is easy and inexpensive .
The apartment is very clean with a large, bright living/dining area that had its own air conditioner. Look out the window to your left and you can see all the action on the beach.
The kitchen is well equipped including basic food supplies. There are a number of food markets located close by.
The bedrooms are small but clean and comfortable with their own TV, air conditioner, storage, and ensuite. The Jacuzzi , which was located in the room we used, does have a shower located on the wall over the tub. The master bedroom has a regular , good size shower stall. The three TV's in the apartment have an extensive satellite system. The wifi worked well while we were there.
The bonus for the apartment is the owner, Andreas, and the property manager/tour guide Peter
From the initial contact with Andreas I was impressed. He always responded quickly to emails and addressed all my questions. I was pleasantly surprised one day, after sending an email with a number of questions about Rio, to have him call me and spend an extended period of time discussing my upcoming trip. He went out of his way to make our visit pleasant
Peter arranged for airport pick up and met us at the apartment. He spent a considerable amount of time going through the apartment with us to familiarize us with everything and then sat with us going over maps that he provided of Rio. He showed us local markets, atms, restaurants and had many suggestions for what we could see and do...even on rainy cloudy days. He organized a cooking class with 'Cook in Rio' which we enjoyed and made arrangements for us to see an excellent Samba show. Peter is very knowledgeable about the city as well of being very friendly and funny. We also went on a 5 hour custom tour of the city with him which was excellent. We walked a far bit and never felt unsafe but we did follow the advise given to us by peter and used the safe in the apartment
I would highly recommend this apartment. You will love the energy of Rio, the luxury of staying in your own apartment and the expertise and support you get from Andreas and Peter.
What can I say, simply the best place to stay in the best location with the best possible help from Andreas .......... Peter will help you every step of the way and is so obliging. I can't fault this gorgeous place and the gorgeous folks that look after you and the apartment. Well done - simply the best!! I'd go back in a heartbeat. One of my highlights the gorgeous painting of Cristo - such sweet memories xx
The four of us were there for World Cup and had an amazing stay. Location, location location. You're literally across the street from Copacabana and a short walk to Ipanema. Everything you need is walking distance and the area is very safe. The apartment is well maintained and has all of the modern accommodations necessary to make your stay an enjoyable one. Although there is a lot going on around you, the unit is relatively quiet. You will not regret it.
Andreas is a pleasure to work with and his right hand man, Peter, is very knowledgable/resourceful. Thanks to them, we were able to see many of the top sights in Rio, see a Samba show, hit a night club, take a cooking class and visit a charming colonial town outside of the city. I highly recommend this rental.
This was our first time in Brazil and we had a great time. This rental is conveniently located accross the street from the beach close to restaurants, shopping and the supermarket. The owner was EXCELLENT to work with and very very responsive. Peter the property manager was also very helpful. The apartment was large and very clean. The area was very safe and we felt comfortable walking around even very late at night. If you are going to Rio, this is the place to stay!!!! Thank you Andreas and Peter for everything!
Rua Souza Lima is a small local street, both quiet and lively at the same time. Right around the corner from Avenida Atlantica, 50 meters from famous Copacabana Beach. No through traffic on our street. Yet- several restaurants and bars at the door step of our building, fun and convenient. The area is very urban, with every kind of store, super market, pharmacy etc.. around the corner. The closeness to the ocean, however, makes for an airy feeling of space, light and fresh air.... you will feel very good and happy at our apartment.
