The Space

For rent studio apartment newly refurbished in Copacabana, south of Rio de Janeiro 2 minutes walk from the most famous beach in Brazil. Restaurants, subways, theaters, supermarkets, bus stops throughout the city and everything it takes two minutes from your front door step!

What you get with this flat is the best location ever in Copacabana. It is well-situated for getting around Copacabana and the nearby beach areas, but it is on a small street, with no car traffic noise ! No night time noise! The metro is a ten-minute walk away, so much of Rio is available quickly. You can find what ever you are looking for in a three or four block area!

The flat is small, but big enough for two people to stay comfortably. It is cosy.

And, after all, you don´t come all the way to Rio to stay indoors, right?
a na Avenida Atlantica, no final segura da praia de Copacabana.
The building has full time security and the doorman and residents are very courteous.

The apartment is very clean and tastefully decorated. The kitchen is stocked with the basic pots and pans and eating utensils- 4 burner gas stove and small fridge.

The building staff people are very pleasant and helpful with directions and will make you feel welcome and safe at all times.
The rental management office is about 20 minutes from the flat, and open until evening, 19pm on weekdays. The check-in procedure take about 15 minutes, as we go through a checklist making sure everything is working (as you watch) right down to turning on each faucet and appliance.

The apartment is very small, but comfortable.
You will surely do as most of the cariocas ans do not spend much time indoors.

The bed is new, and so is the matress, and the size is adequated type *queen* by Brazil standards .

The walk to the beach is very short and lined with good little family-run restaurants and small shops.

As far as the apartment what you see is what you get: it is quite dark because the only window looks at the courtyard, but at least you don't hear the noise coming from street. 24h security service. The location in absolutely perfect, just 3 min walking from the beach.

You will feel safe at all times- walking, riding the buses and taxis and eating at any small bar, bakery or juice bars with other brazilians in the area.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Great neighbourhood, perfect location. Apartment was small but perfect for two people who wish to spend their days visiting Rio, or in our case the Fifa Fun Center at Copacabana. Monique is very easy to communicate with, gets back to you quickly and tries to do her best to help her guests have a wonderful stay.

  • El departamento de Monique es cómodo, excelente ubicación y seguro, que es lo más importante. Sus datos y consejos de bienvenida fueron además muy útiles. Tenemos una muy buena valoración del lugar y estamos muy agradecidos de habernos alojado ahí varias noches y en época de Copa del Mundo.

  • The apt is located in great location, close to Copacabana beach, walking distance to Leme, and with proximity to Botafogo/Lapa and Ipanema/Leblon. Apartment was great for my stay in Rio.

  • Monique y Miguel fueron muy amables y atentos en todo momento, desde que hicimos la reserva hasta que nos fuimos del departamento. Con mucha paciencia, Miguel nos recibió con un mapa de Rio y nos explicó cómo hacer todo lo que teníamos planeado, tirándonos tips sobre zonas de la ciudad, horarios de los transportes, etc.
    La ubicación está muy bien, es muy cómodo para moverse si uno piensa estar unos días recorriendo Rio (cerca del subte, colectivos, playa, comercios, restaurantes, etc.) Está muy bien equipado, la cama es muy cómoda y tiene aire acondicionado y ventilador.
    Si su idea es un buen lugar para dormir mientras de día están afuera disfrutando de la ciudad, es el lugar perfecto. Hay un encargado de seguridad 24 hs abajo para abrir la puerta de entrada, lo cual es cómodo y te brinda tranquilidad, por más que el barrio ya es muy tranquilo.

  • Monique's apartment was perfect for our stay in Rio! The location is fantastic. Monique & Miguel were the best hosts you could ask for, they spent the time to give us lots of advice and guidance for our short stay, enabling us to make the very most of our visit. Monique & Miguel were very welcoming and enthusiastic, we cannot recommend them enough! Many many thanks.
