About Hannes Gissurarson

I am an Icelandic university professor who spends half the year in Copacabana to do my writing and research. When I am not there, I occasionally rent out my large flat where I enjoy entertaining and accommodating guests, family and friends.

Hannes Gissurarson purchased this apartment in 2007

Why Hannes Gissurarson chose Copacabana

The neighbourhood is safe, and the flat is spacious, not only with three full bedrooms (plus the maid’s room) and four bathrooms, but also with a television room (with a sofa bed, so it is the 4th bedroom) and study as well as a traditional living room and dining room.

What makes this apartment unique

The benefits of the flat for guests is location and comfort. It could not be better located, in the centre of Copacabana, and it is very homely and comfortable, with plenty of bathrooms and great space so people do not feel too close to one another.

This apartment is rented out as a whole (or individual rooms) when the owner is away which is for several months a year, at least in the autumn. With it could possibly be rented the upstairs penthouse flat which has two bedrooms for four people, a bar, kitchenette and outdoors grill and dining area. The maid who works 5 days a week in the apartment when the owner is present can be hired to clean and cook; otherwise she would come in once a week to check out things.
