The Space

Hi, this is a beautiful charming apartment for two with air con - well located and on the first floor of a small residential apartment block with an elevator, and 24 hour security doorman - next to Copacabana Rio Hotel, one block from the beach, one minute walk away.

One BIG double (real) bed with hanging wardrobes, a small balcony, fantastic black-out curtains and a flat screen TV and DVD player. Sofa in lounge with kitchen bar and stools, refrigeration and gas hob in kitchen and private bathroom with instant hot water, toilet and sink. Stylish and tasteful decor by Italian interior designers.
Easy access for Copacabana Beach, a one minute walk away - and short walk to Ipanema Metro for connections around the City and the beach. Next to supermarkets, banks, beaches, taxis, bus stops, restaurants, juice bars, bars and shopping.

The apartment is cleaned before you arrive with clean towels and bed-linen provided. It's a real oasis in the City as located to the quiet rear of the building, so no road noise. It's a truly lovely place to stay and very popular with guests.

Perfect for couples, not suitable for parties. It sleeps 2. Well equipped with air conditioning, gas hob, fridge, microwave, internet, flat screen TV with cable channels and ipod dock. Big double (real) bed, with bed linen and towels provided.

Easy to get to Corcovado, Sugar Loaf and all the main attractions of this amazing city. Buses run along the street outside, and the beach.

Local management if needed.

Interaction with Guests

Hi there, I've owned this apartment since 2007 and enjoy hosting guests who want to enjoy the sights of Rio and have a little oasis of their own there. I enjoy having an apartment there so I can make a cuppa for myself (I'm English, so there's always got to be tea!), and open a bottle of wine as I'm getting ready to hit the bars of Ipanema. The location is hard to beat, cross the road and you're at Copacabana Beach. The shower is lush and there's a very big double bed to recover from all the fun in.
Everytime I visit myself I find new places so do keep me posted about the places you discover while you're in town. Rio's a vibrant and beautiful City and I'm sure you'll fall in love with it as I have. Don't miss Friday night out in Lapa - and recovery and people watching on Ipanema Beach for the rest of the weekend.
High season is Dec-March when prices are higher, prices lower rest of the year, apart from New Year and Carnival which have a set price package for 10 days.

I know this will be a great base for your stay in Rio, and I have very happy guests - which makes me happy. Thank you for your interest.

Any questions then please drop me a line. Thanks.

The Neighborhood

The location is pretty much perfect - and neighbourhood is fantastic, a short hop across the road to Copacabana Beach and a short and easy direct walk to Ipanema for the hippy market, beach and Metro, plus lots of great shops, supermarkets, restaurants, banks and bars within seconds of leaving the front door.
If you look at the reviews for Copacabana Rio Hotel on the web (ignore the room reviews!) but the hotel is located next door to my apartment - so their reviews all give an idea of how great the location is. It's also next door but one to the Police station!
I look forward to hosting you there.

Getting around

Plenty of taxis, mini-buses, buses, and the Metro - can whizz you about the city - but it's a great place as so much is within easy walking distance.

Other Things to Note

  • The location was great! A 3min walk to the beach and plenty of great restaurNts around like churassco palace and sasa. Caroline was a great host! Thank you

  • This apartment is lovely and quiet! It's tastefully decorated. Having a door man 24/7 is a great security feature that we loved. The area is safe and close to the beach and is very central with bus stop right in front of the building. Having a hotel next door is also great (they do our foreign exchange for us late into the night and there is also a plethora of taxis available in front of the building).

    Caroline kept in touch with us frequently and tried to make our trip a bit smoother because our flight was delayed, so we absolutely appreciate the gesture very much!

    I highly recommend this apartment for those who are looking to stay in the Copacabana area! World Cup, people????

  • O ponto forte deste apartamento é a localização. Fica próximo a Ipanema, numa região bem servida de comércio: farmácias, supermercados, bancos, restaurantes, etc. Há pontos de ônibus bem próximos, onde passam diversas linhas. De um modo geral, o apartamento é bom, mas não tão bem conservado como aparentam as fotos. A cama e o chuveiro são ótimos, mas a limpeza deixou um pouco a desejar. Não se ouve barulho da rua, mas há uma família bem barulhenta morando no apartamento vizinho. Recomendo manter as janelas fechadas, pois tem um restaurante instalado no térreo do edifício e o cheiro de comida é constante.

  • We spent 9 nights in Caroline's apartment. It was perfect - great location and terrific value. We loved being able to walk across the street to the beach, and having banks, pharmacy, bookstore, groceries and tons of eating options all very close by. The apartment was clean and secure. Thank you Caroline!

  • The apartment is very nice and in an excellent location. Caroline, the host, was very responsive and accommodating. I would definitely recommend this apartment.

  • Our stay was great, Caroline is very easy to work with. The location is absolutely perfect close to both Copacabana and Ipanema beaches. Our only surprise was that towels were not provided.

    Response from Caroline:

    Hi Matt, I'm sorry you didn't have towels, you should have and I would have arranged them to be delivered. Sometimes in Rio the cleaners forget to replace them, not often but from time to time so please do let me know as soon as you get there and I can get them to you straight away. Glad you had a great stay :)

  • It's truly a perfect location, the apartment was clean and I felt good in there. Anything was arranged and when I needed an advice Caroline answered me right away and helped. She seems to be a funny and easy going person. I plan to come back next year to Rio and would like to stay in her appartment again !

  • O apartamento é bem parecido com as fotos, porém não está tão novinho.
    É muito bem localizado, a um qurteirão da praia, perto de bancos, mercado, ponto de ônibus e toda a infra estrutura necessária.
    A limpeza estava ok.
    Tive um pequeno problema com a iluminação, mas a
    Caroline foi muito atenciosa, mesmo estando distante.

About
From London, UK. Now living in Los Angeles, CA. I'm a chatty old thing who loves nothing more than a bottle of wine and a giggle with friends, exploring new places and revisiting old favourites. I work in the media. I love sunshine, music, comedy and the news. I know, the news. I can people watch for hours and sometimes much as I love to chat - like to be quiet and watch the world go by. I'm quite into juicing, green juices rather than fruit ones I mean. I like chic restaurants as much as I like a picnic on the beach. I like to go for a run (although recovering from a ski accident - I don't like to ski anymore - so running has been off the agenda a little) and doing hot yoga. My favourite places apart from London are Los Angeles, Nashville, Koh Samui, Rio De Janeiro, Whitstable, Istanbul...I could go on...but that's enough for now. Most of all I love sharing these places with family and friends. I try to keep my priorities in the right order, when I'm juggling life's plates. I love my job and work hard. But most of all I really like it when my lovely husband Mark makes me a cup of tea - oh and I make awesome scrambled eggs, as good as any 5* hotel's breakfast. I'm tidy and organised and have two awesome cats and too many pairs of shoes.
