About Luiz & Claudia

We love to travel, and recently we discovered how great is to stay on rental apartment instead of staying in a hotel. My brother and I decided to buy and create a cozy place in Rio de Janeiro which we would choose to stay if we were tourists. We found an excellent apartment in a residential and tranquil location at the center/heart of Copacabana (named Posto 4). It is a green and quiet street but very close to great conveniences and Copacabana Beach. We will be very glad to have you as our guest!

Luiz & Claudia purchased this apartment in 2011

Why Luiz & Claudia chose Rio de Janeiro City

We are born in Copacabana and we know the best places here. When we found an apartment with one bedroom and a very good size in a residential building with only 4 per floor on the Cinco de Julho street, we bought it! Every inhabitant of Copacabana would like to live on this privileged and coveted street. The apartment is quiet, bright and pleasant, perfect ingredients for an unforgettable stay because it is also close to everything public transportations to take you to everywhere in the city. Welcome to Copacabana!

What makes this apartment unique

Perfect Location, Great Host!

  • 5 of 5

My brother and I had the pleasure of staying at Luiz and Claudias apartment during the World Cup matches between 6/10/14 - 6/14/14. Planning a trip of this magnitude is definitely stressful especially when you have never visited the place or know the language. Luiz and Claudia from the very beginning of my process to our final day there, were very attentive, informative and overall great hosts! This is important when traveling abroad which many people overlook. The apartment itself, although petite, it is very comfortable and well furnished for the size. Everything is as described. The location is absolutely perfect! Located in Copacabana, it was only a few blocks away from the beach. In the morning on the way to the beach we would walk and have breakfast along many of the nice small restaurants along the way. There is anything and everything you might ever need within blocks of the apartment. In addition, bus stops to all the major sites are very close by, Luiz and Claudia have this great binder full of this type of information (bus stops, restaurants, etc). I felt very safe walking around even through the late hours of the night, not to say you should let your guard down like in any major city, but it is definitely safe. If I every come back to Copacaban, (i hope i will) I will definitely be in contact with Luiz and Claudia. By far one of the best host I had during my stay in Brazil. Obrigado!

Pasamos una semana en el depto de Luiz y Claudia. Sumamente confortable, provisto de todo lo necesario. Decorado con mucho gusto.

El vecindario nos hizo sentir seguros en todo momento.

Una ubicacion privilegiada, cerca de la playa y de calles comerciales, asi como de lineas de transporte.

Claudia se destaco por ser una gran anfitriona.

Sumamente recomendable para todos los que quieran pasar unos dias en Rio.

Gracias Claudia!!!Silvia, Fernando,Facundo y Camila.

This place is fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

Claudia and Luiz are extremely helpful, kind people! The communication with them throughout this process was impeccable. I was traveling alone, so that was very important to me. They had a great welcome pack full of great information, and the internet woking beautifully too. They even provided a call phone with a local number so that you could easily contact them if you needed them - I only had to buy minutes to add to it to do so. And they were immediately available when I needed them too. The apartment is perfectly clean and comfortable, and the location is also perfect. It is located in a lively, friendly neighborhood just 5-10 minutes walk from the beach (depending on how fast you walk), and close to great restaurants, grocery stores, juice bars and shopping. If you're into bike riding, you can rent a city bike at the beach, and bike all over the area. Ipanema Beach is also within walking distance from here. I can't wait to go back again, and I will always stay at Claudia and Luiz's place. I really can't say enough about them and this apartment! What a great vacation!

Great apartment, perfect for Rio

  • 5 of 5

Firstly the communication between myself and Claudia was really good. Any questions we had were answered very promptly via email prior to arrival. We were greeted with a very warm Brasilian welcome from Claudia and Luiz which was great. They provided us with a very practical and informative welcome pack. The location is ideal for Rio, 5 minute walk to post 5 copacabana a little further to Ipanema also very near to supermarkets, banks restaurants and bars. The apartment itself was perfect for myself and 3 friends clean and tidy and very safe. Also I have to mention the wifi, which was amazing it could easily handle all of us online at the same time. To summarise I would defiantly stay here again and 100% recommend this apartment to anyone visiting Rio. Claudia and Luiz are lovely people and nothing is too much trouble for them. Hopefully see guys soon x

Owner's Response: Hi, guys, We’re especially very glad reading your review. The Word Cup was a very pleasant moment for us even if Brazil didn’t win the Cup… It was very nice to see all these tourists from all nationalities coming and going in Copacabana. We’ll save it in our memories as a great moment in Rio. You guys are very nice and very open to our Brazilian culture, and we appreciate this. We’ll be happy to welcome you again in Rio. Kind regards from Claudia and Luiz.

Nice Apartment on Nicest Street in Copacabana

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed for 6 nights in September 2013. We travel a great deal (I have visited 60+ countries) and I plan and research our trips extensively. My research paid off when I found the wonderful apartment on maybe the cutest and quietest street in all of Copacabana owned by Claudia and her brother. The apartment is in a smaller building with great security on a tree lined 3 block long street that doesn't have much traffic and no buses. Claudia and her brother run a professional operation where they have addressed all aspects of renting their cute 1 bedroom starting from their good website to making a deposit and checking us in and out.Before I rented this unit I read all the reviews and I agree with everything in them and could repeat the same remarks here. Yes, the location worked perfectly for us, easy walk to everything, subway, buses, nice market around the corner, restaurants, anything else you might need. Yes, the apartment looks exactly like the photos. This is an important point since in the past I have stayed at places that would be "staged" for photos but when you arrived many of the things in the photo would have been removed and you would have a plain bare apartment. Not so here. In my opinion one of the best things about this apartment was the comfortable feeling when you walked in the door, it was like a home with all those small little touchs from the photos on the walls to all the other decorations. Even a couple of umbrellas left in the corner for your use if it rained. Claudia also left us with a cell phone in case with needed to contact her. By the way, Claudia's English is very good and she is happy to share her extensive knowledge of the area with you. All in all a very nice stay and highly recommended. From my many past experiences traveling, we booked fairly early because great places like this tend to be booked up quickly.

Owner's Response: Bob and Pia, we're so glad and honored to have such good review from you. You’re experts on planning great trips and itineraries, you had already visited more than 60 countries (just starting second round), and you felt home in our apartment. Wow! We also love to travel, and this is our goal on renting our apartment at Rua Cinco de Julho! This is the best feedback we can have from a guest. Thank you very much for staying in our apartment; it was a pleasure meeting you guys. Kind regards from Rio de Janeiro.

Nota dez!

  • 5 of 5

O apartamento é excelente. Fomos meu marido, minha filha e eu. É tudo perto: praia, mercado, farmácia, sorveteria, hortifruti (sucos frescos e deliciosos), restaurantes, banca de jornais...tudo! A rua é bem residencial, silenciosa e também tem fácil acesso a todos os pontos turísticos: ônibus e táxi por todos os lados. Cláudia e Luiz são ótimos, muito prestativos, simpáticos e dispostos a dar dicas dos melhores pontos da cidade. Realmente nos surpreendemos e nossa estada foi perfeita! Não temos dúvidas de que voltaremos ao Rio e ficaremos nesse apartamento novamente. Recomendo!
