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.

I can't over emphasize the location only a few meters
from Copacabana Beach! The apartment is also very
nice and beautifully decorated. Also it was very hot
when we were there and the air conditioning in the
apartment did a great job of keeping us comfortable.
It has a water filter which is a nice touch because it
eliminates the need to always go and buy bottled water
at the grocery store, which by the way, is right around the
corner. In fact, everything you need is only a short walk
away. The apartment is on the 8th floor which eliminates
a lot of the street noise below. We stayed there for a month
and really wanted to stay longer. One more thing, the property
manager, Peter, speaks fluent English and was always there
when we needed him for anything. The owner, Andreas, is a very
nice person who made sure that our stay went well.
Security is good as there is
a door man or woman there 24/7 to screen all persons entering the
building. The internet connection there is fast so I was able
to use my Roku to see a lot of U.S. tv stations.
All in all, I would gladly return for another stay there.
The apartment had great service starting with the owner Andreas who communicated very quickly and efficiently. He gave us great recommendations to nearby shopping places, which made it easy to decide what places to visit and see. Peter arranged for pick up and drop off to airport and additional transportation needed during our trip. Peter also gave us a private day tour which was great with no wait. The apartment is very welcoming to individuals and famiies, feels just like home. Unit has a great side view to the beach. Air in all rooms made the stay very comfortable. No problems with hot water and filtration system helped a lot as we packed our water everyday. Kitchen is a bit small but feasible for one person to do the cooking. All systems were relatively easy to use, had to get use to stove. Washer and dryer a lil tricky to use and dryer doesn't dry clothes all the way, but there are racks were you can air dry them. A perk to have free wifi (had a bit of trouble connecting, but rebooted and worked well). 24 hour Security in the building made us feel very safe. Outside noise or neighbors we're not a problem, very quite building. Will definitely consider staying here again. Loved loved how close to the beach and al shopping this place was.
First of all, the property was clean and convenient to the beach. It was near a lot of restaurants and shopping areas. I am happy with my choice
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.
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.
