The Space

Pls note that the World Cup is already booked! No need to inquire.
Rates for New Years and Carnival are considerably higher than regular rates. 10 nights minimum (with a maximum occupancy of 5 people). Please inquire for specifics.
- beautiful, sunny 2 bedroom in 24h doorman building
- 1 min. to walk to Copacabana beach
- spacious living room, 2 large bedrooms with 2 full-size beds (each sleeps 2)
- High speed WiFi (10MB); phone (local landline calls free)
- "Split" air condition in each room (almost silent like in a hotel)
- 32'' flat screen tv, premium cable including channels in Engl.
- large balcony which looks out on pedestrian street
- no traffic - priceless in Rio (apartments with sea view are noisy because of traffic)
- close to everything, a stone throw away from famous Copacabana Palace Hotel
- 4 burner gas stove with oven, fridge, microwave,coffee maker, iron, hairdryer, vacuum cleaner, water filter - apt is fully equipped, you only have to bring your toothbrush
- 2 min. to walk to subway station "Cardeal Arco Verde - Copacabana"

The location:
This is where it all happens. All big events are just 1 min. to walk away. Any kind of concert (like the Stones) or parade will either be on the beach in front of Copacabana Palace Hotel or on Avenida Atlantica. It's definitely the most lively area in all of Rio. - The apt is very spacious. Everyone adores the huge balcony (on second floor) which allows you to see the action below. There are no cars passing, it's a pedestrian street, and you will see Brazilians socializing, having a churrasco, playing a guitar, dancing etc. - The subway station Cardeal Arco Verde and all major bus lines are a short walk away, so it's extremely easy to move around. Most people stay put, though, since you're at the best spot anyway!

  • My friends and I all enjoyed our time at Max's apartment. All the pictures of the rooms and balcony are completely accurate.

    The location is top shelf and you are literally only one block from all the excitement of the beach.

    Max is a great host and was very timely in getting back to us any time we had a question.

    I would recommend this apartment for anyone looking to stay in Rio.

  • Everything perfect. The apartment is very nice, clean and equiped with all you need. The location close to Copacabana is awesome. You can go for morning/evening run to the beach, many restaurants and shops are very close. But the highlight is the terrace! We sit there every morning for the breakfast and drink some wine in the evening! Max gave us all information we need - especially directions from the airport and tips for fun and shopping. Very appreciated ;)

    You will definitely enjoy the stay here!

  • If you are staying in Copacabana and want great value for money, definitely stay in this apartment. It is everything the description says. The beds were comfortable, the house was spacious and has an amazing cake shop at the end of the street.

    Max was attentive to all our questions and for my first stay in Rio, this was a great experience. I would highly recommend Max's apartment.

  • O Sr. Max é uma pessoa muito cortês, honesta e sincera.
    Gostamos muito do apto. que alugamos do Sr. Max e indico este apto., ora referido, pois é muito bom!
    Tem uma ótima sacada, 02 quartos e sala, todos com ar condicionado split, além de chuveiro com aquecimento a gás; com cozinha bem equipada (microondas, fogão e geladeira novos, talheres ótimos, etc), tem ótima localização, perto da praia, metrô, ponto de ônibus e de táxi.
    Como disse o Sr. Max a mim: "basta trazer a escova de dentes"
    Caso retorne ao Rio, com certeza, alugarei este apto.
    Muito obrigado, Sr. Max, pela excelente estadia que você proporcionou a mim e aos meus familiares..

  • The apartment is excellent and very well placed for the Copacabana beach and juice bars. It felt safe with the doorman quickly getting used to us and it was quiet at night. The a/c worked well and the kitchen was full of all these little things that you do not want to go shopping for the first morning, like sugar, coffee, salt etc.
    When we needed more clean towels, Max came over the same day. Very good service.

About
I used to work as a journalist all around the globe. Lived for 15 years in good old NYC and am now based in Rio. Still do journalism to a lesser extend (no more travel, will stay put in Rio), and am writing on that "great novel" which will probably never be finished. - I am a big fan of the "jeitinho brasileiro". It's hard to translate. It's basically: "If you can't jump the fence, dig a tunnel." Cariocas are masters in this ancient art form.
