About the property

I am a Belgian and live 9 months a year in Brazil. In Brazil, I live mostly in Salvador, but I regularly go to Rio. That is why, I acquired this wonderful apartment in the cidade maravilhosa.During 2 years I searched an apartment that meets the 2 following criteria: CALM AND SILENCE. As I live there myself occasionally, I took care of a maximal practical comfort and a decoration in which I which feel good. (other owners in the building like to refer to the decoration of the apartment as an example).

The appartment has been COMPLETELY RENOVATED in 2009 and is very clean, it has a side view to the sea. With an area of 60 m2 it is spacoius. It is located at a 5 minutes walk from the famous Copacabana beach. All the furniture is new.

The bedroom is spacious and includes several very large cabinets in which, you can put clothes and lugage. I gave special attention to the bed that I wanted to be very comfortable (orthobom). Sheets, pillows, bedlining and towels are new and from a good quality. Besides air conditioning a ceiling fan was installed in the room . There is also an office desk in the corner of the room.

I hung a typical brazilian hammock is in the living room, from which you can overlooks the sea. The living room has also a ceiling fan. The furniture of the living room consists of a sofa, some poufs, 4 chairs, a coffee table and TV.

The kitchen, with 2 worktops in granite, is fully equipped and very practical. If you want to cook, you'll find all the crockery and all necessary equipment.

The bathroom, well ventilated, has been completely redone in 2009 togehter with all the plumbing (sink, shower, WC).

The building is secure and has 2 elevators.A discount can be negotiated for long period.

For those who wish, we can rent bikes. And you will see: Rio is pedaling paradise, riding along the legendary beaches of Copacabana, Ipanema, around the lagoa or Flamengo overlooking the Sugarloaf are unforgettable moments. No problem for your safety, as many bike

Awesome Find!”

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this apartment 22 days on our winter vacation.

We felt like we hit the JACKPOT after realizing how

close we were to such an incredible beach,

that we were within walking distance or take a cab to

almost everything we wanted to do, and

that there was very reasonably priced transportation

to the things that weren't. Our apartment was

simply perfect! The whole place (including the bed!)

is super cute and comfortable and the owner has made sure

anything you could possibly need is available to you.

He informed us of all the area had to offer,

and gave us advice on where to eat, and where to get

good exchange rates

this apartment is a huge part of our long list of

amazing vacations memories! We're looking forward

to celebrating some anniversaries down the

road at "our spot" in copacabana!

Great apartment at a great location

  • 5 of 5

I booked this property in May of 2016. The owner is very responsive and made the booking and check-in/check-out process very easy. The apartment is very clean and everything was in working condition. The kitchen has everything you need to prepare meals if you desire to do so despite the many nice restaurants within walking distance from the apartment. Do not underestimate the hammock in the living room. It is the perfect place to relax after a long day of exploring the city! Speaking of perfect place: The location of this property is unbeatable, literally steps away from the beach, stores and restaurants. Despite its vicinity the beach, it is surprisingly quite at night. I will definitely consider booking it again the next time I visit Rio.

Très bon accueil et disponibilité de la part de Guy.

  • 5 of 5

Le plus de cet appartement est l'accueil de Guy.

Plage de Lémé Poste 1 face à l'appartement, très pratique. Ensuite possibilité de se balader sur la plage pour rejoindre Copacabana ou Ipanema (ou prendre un taxi peu onéreux)

Do you know Leme? This place consists mainly of one street (Gustavo Sampaio), highly arborized, and located just at the end of Copacabana Beach. As a quarter without issue, very little traffic passes by and therefore quietness is assured. One sometimes has the impression to be in a calm district of a Southern European city with a South American touch. If you stay a while, soon heads will be familiar to you and say hello. In short, there is a real-life neighborhood of Leme.

The apartment is located in the same street as the Othon Hotel.

Watching a sunset at Sugar Loaf. Visit Corcovado. Make a small trekking in the National Park of Tijuca Floresta. Walk in the botanical garden. Cycling around the lagoa. Shopping in Rio Sul (where you find typically brazilian fashion). Sniff the atmosphere of downtown. Going to stage mythical Maracana. Se disorient in the feira Nordeste São Cristóvão, etc.. Go to the nearby beach, play beach-volley, "drink" agua de coco "(coconut water), eat a" qualho queijo "(grilled cheese).Enjoy the many bars and restaurants nearby (churrascarias, the famous restaurant seafood nearby “marius”, tropical fruit juices pressed, natural cuisine" Minas Gerais "caipirinha" cerveja bem gelada "(cold beer) .

Go to the movies (very close), museums, cultural centers. Guided tours by Leo, who knows the city very well
