The building has a 24-hour doorman, and it is located in a quiet residential block. On the same street, there are supermarkets, pharmacies, bars and restaurants, bookstore and even a charming movie theater, the Roxy, dated from the '30s.
Located just two blocks away from the beach, it takes just 10 minutes to get to the beautiful recreational area of Lagoa Rodrigo de Freitas. There you can ride a bike or just enjoy the beautiful view of the mountains.
Another option is visiting the trendy area that is Ipanema. It only takes 15 minutes to get there, where you can find nice restaurants, bars and nightclubs.

Always wash the feet after the beach, and go straight to the shower, because if don't, the sand spreads all around the apartment. Never take a sit in a couch after the beach.

This was the first time I have used airbnb and wasn't disappointed. Ernesto and his mum were very welcoming. They were very friendly and had lot's of good advice to help us with our trip to Rio. Ernesto's apartment is immaculately clean and in an excellent location with a good sized double bedroom, close to the beach and metro. There is an elevator taking you up from street level and secure entrance. I would highly recommend a stay here. Get out of souless hotels and stat with a Brazillian family.
This is my first Airbnb experience and I really had a great stay with Ernesto family. He is very helpful, nice and generous, offered me some fruits and juices, provided water filter with warm and cold water so you don't have to buy bottle water. His mum is very kind and nice, prepare breakfast every morning. House is very clean and comfortable.
I would say the location is perfect with the values of money you pay. It is so closed to Copacabana and you can walk to Ipanema beach as well. Bus connections to Corcovado, Sugarloaf mountain, centre and etc. All these place of visit are pretty closed by. You can find shops, supermarket, restaurants around this area and 24 hours security service which is very safe. Walking distance to Metro Station as well. It is not difficult to find this place, take bus 2018 from airport and tell the driver to drop off in between Av Atlantic and R. Bolivar.
Highly recommended to stay at his place!
I enjoyed my staying at Ernesto's. He was very helpful. The apartment is as shown in the photos. He was very flexible for the check in and check out time,which is was great for me, since my arrival and leaving flight were all at night time. I recommend Ernesto's apartment if you are traveling to Rio.
My wife and I really enjoyed our stay with Ernesto in his apartment. It is located in a great location right next to copacabana beach with bus stops and metro station right next to it. Ernesto was very helpful with tips on where to eat and how to get around. The apt was very cozy and clean with a nice bathroom including rainforest shower head which is great after spending a day in the rio heat. Breakfast was provided and waiting for us each morning including yogurt, bread, juice, and ham/cheese. There was a doorman at his building so safety was not an issue. Overall would recommend this to anyone traveling to rio.
The reservation was canceled 3 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
A nossa estadia no Rio de Janeiro foi ótima, o Ernesto e sua mãe, a dona Léo, são ótimas pessoas.
O ambiente é muito limpo e organizado e fomos muito bem recebidos.
O lugar é duas quadras da praia de Copacabana e perto da Lago Rodrigo de Freitas, região ótima para quem vai passear e conhecer o Rio.
Nuestra estadía en la casa de Ernesto y su madre fue genial. La ubicación excelente, a dos cuadras de la playa y dos cuadras del subte en Copacabana. El departamento siempre limpio y los desayunos super completos. Muy recomendable todo, nos sentimos como en casa!
Meu nome é Ernesto, sou jornalista e apaixonado por viagens. Já morei em Vancouver por um tempo, e passei por vários países da América do Sul.
Vivo na Zona Sul do Rio de Janeiro e curto aproveitar o que o Rio oferece de melhor: a praia, assim como quaisquer atividades ao ar livre.
Minha minha mãe mora junto comigo, gostamos de receber pessoas, aprender novas culturas e conversar sobre praticamente todos os assuntos. Bem-vindo!
