The Space

This lovely flat is located in Cosme Velho, a traditional neighbourhood located in the southern zone of Rio de Janeiro, at the bottom of the Corcovado Mountain.

It features:
- room with a super comfy double bed, side tables, chest of drawers, table and chairs;
- kitchen with cooking facilities, cooker, fridge, microwave and toaster;
- toilet with shower;
- wi-fi and ceiling fan.

All in a quiet atmosphere, with complete privacy and large windows to a lovely view.

You will not find a place like this in Rio. You'll be surrounded by an Atlantic Forest Garden in the center of the city. You may even get to see monkeys and toucans!

The flat sits in the garden of a house but it has complete privacy including a private entrance. There are 4 flats in total plus the main house and there is always someone around to help guests with anything they need in this quiet, safe, homely atmosphere.

And if action is what you want it is minutes away. It is only 20 minutes away from Rio's Historic Center, Lapa, Santa Tereza and the beaches of Copacabana and Ipanema.

There are many transport links around - bus stops are only 2 minutes away, you can easily get a cab or if you prefer the nearest tube station is Largo do Machado.

Please note that there are two dogs in the main house. They are really nice and friendly and you will see them playing around.

Please contact us before booking. We are very flexible and will try to accommodate your needs so you can have a wonderful stay. Please get in touch.

Thank you!

  • I spent 2 months in this lovely studio apartment. It was a fantastic experience. Firstly, Consuelo is wonderful. She's helpful (email hidden) to getting around Rio. Secondly, the apartment is very cute and situated in the gardens of a big house. It's very private with a balcony over looking a private garden. I spent many mornings having breakfast surrounded by monkeys and toucans. A magical start to the day. The apartment was cleaned once a week and the kitchen and bathroom are in great condition. Aside from the neighbourhood dogs occasional bark it is pretty silent most of the time. Of course this is Brazil and on weekends you can hear a party happening somewhere in the forest that surrounds the house, but they never go on through the night so it shouldn't disturb you.

    The area the apartment is situated is a safe residential neighbourhood. I felt perfectly safe walking back from the local bars or restaurants at night. Less than 5 minutes from the house is a bus station with buses going all over the city. It can take a while to get to Ipanema or Copacabana by bus (50 minutes at times) but by taxi it will take literally 10-15 minutes and only costs about $10 or £5. The bus also takes you to the nearest metro, which is a short ride to Copa and Ipanema. I would say my only reservation about taking this apartment is if you want to walk out of your apartment and be on a beach. But to be honest the benefits of this place out weigh the location issue. You get to be in a safer area, your apartment has outdoor space (most apartments in this price range near the beach don't seem to have much light let alone outdoor space) and the people running the apartment are wonderful. All in all I would highly recommend Consuelo's apartments and in particular this one.
