If you want to have real fun in an unique place with a lot of character, this is your place!
It is a charming penthouse located at the heart of the night life in Leblon, a few steps away from the beach.
Feel the freedom and have total privacy, meet a lot of nice people like you at the hostel, just in front, go to the disco or to the bar next door, go surf or walk on the beach, it's just around the block, take a lot of pictures and don't forget to do some Caipirinhas with the Cachaça from the oak barrel. Enjoy!
You have access to an exclusive terrace where you can view the Two Brothers Mountain (Morro Dois Irmão) and a winter garden with a nice hammock for the lazy days.
Interaction with Guests
I live near by, around 20min, from the apartment, and I'm always available at the Airbnb msg, "what's up", cel or phone.
My goal is to always respect the privacy and freedom of my guests, so I will be at the apartment only when requested.
Our location is unrivaled, one of the finest neighborhoods of Rio de Janeiro, with great restaurants nearby. The inhabitants belong, mostly, to the upper class, including some of the names of the cultural, economic and political elite of Rio.
You can find the best restaurants, discos, bars, 24H supermarket, and a lot more only a few meters from the apartment.
Take a look at our neighborhood guide and see for yourself all the places you have around the apartment location.
There are bus, taxi and metro stops near by.

Loft ideal para jóvenes. Ubicado en el mejor barrio de Río y a una cuadra de la playa.
Nice location and apartment was ok. Need new bed there, was just not good, and some bad smell. Rest just fine.
Walter is nice and welcoming. The place is close to club/bars which we can hear a little at night sometimes.
Walter is very accommodating and has a great apartment in a great location. Would definitely stay again!
This was a fantastic apartment in a great location. Very clean with all the amenities one could need. I was a little worried about noise from the bar/club below based on previous reviews, but we found it to be no problem whatsoever. The immediate area is very clean and safe with the beach and a number of restaurants/bars close by.
The shower was kinda small, but it provided hot water so that was a big win. I would definitely stay here again.
Great stay in Leblon during the 1st 2 weeks of the World Cup. Walter's place is in a great location (if you want to escape the crowds of Ipanema/Copacabana). The loft is unique and adequate for three people. Great terrace and location, location, location. The beach is a block away and there's a bike shop in the neighborhood -Special Bikes - where you can rent by the day for 60 reals. There's also a Rio bike share program but seems difficult for foreigners to sign up.
Walter's a very responsive host and made it very convenient to get the key with the assistance of the hostel across the street. We planned this stay 9 months in advance and Walter kept to his word…whereas I have had hosts cancel reservations at the last minute before. Obrigado Walter!
