The Space

THIS LISTING IS FOR ONE OR TWO BEDROOMS IN MY APARTMENT, you will not get the whole apartment just to yourself, please read carefully to avoid misunderstandings info. Thanks.

The building is located on a very quiet street ONE BLOCK from the beach as well as the best part of downtown Leblon. This is the west-end of Leblon where the very best restaurants and bars are all located (reference: Rua Dias Ferreira).
Everything is in easy walking distance, but if you need buses or the metro, the main stop is just a short block away.The rooms are spacious and light, noise-free, with wi-fi broadband internet, frigo bar, air conditioner, and all you need to feel comfortable. .
The large kitchen is complete with two refrigerators, "master cold water purifier" with choice of cold or natural drinking water, microwave, toaster, coffee maker and a large table where Continental Breakfast is served. There are places to park nearby in Ruas Aperana and Gabriel Mufarrej if you have a car. In the nearby Rua Dias Ferreira, besides the variety of restaurants which offer food for every taste (Brazilian, Italian, Japanese, the Fellini, with a buffet where you pay by the kilo (pounds) of the food you desire, from salad bar to divine desserts, etc.). You can also enjoy the sophisticated and eclectic Livraria Argumento (books, cds, etc.) plus a cozy tearoom where you can have your choice of light and delicious lunches or just drink coffee, chocolate, or your choice of English, Indian tea, etc., while reading a magazine, a book or simply relaxing alone or in good company. If you feel like shoppping or watching a movie in modern, comfortable projection rooms, you can walk or take a cab to the beautiful Shopping Leblon, a mall full of exquisite objects, electronics, women's and men's wear, shoes, everything your heart desires. If you decide to rest for a while, you can sit in a comfortable lounge with sofas, small tables, chairs, and listen to suave music played by an accomplished piano player. All that and much, much more in the four floor building, plus an ample parking space, in case you have (email hidden) is an outdoors city. If you enjoy biking, hiking, volleyball on the beach, swimming in the open ocean or simply a dip in a waterfall, there is something for all tastes. All of this overlooking an overwhelming natural beauty from the ˝Cidade Maravilhosa˝ , or the Wonderful City, as it has been named. Professional athletes give volleyball and foot volleyball classes on the sands of Leblon, Ipanema and Copacabana Beaches, as well as swimming in open beach waters too. All only a block from my property.

Packages negotiable. Prices will change according to season (long holidays, New Year, Carnival, Easter, etc.). PLEASE ASK FOR PRICES BEFORE BOOKING.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Lilian es una anfitriona discreta y cortés. Muy amable y dispuesta, con una gran educación y manejo de varios idiomas. Su casa es amplia y con una excelente ubicación, cerca de la playa y de los lugares más bonitos de Leblon pero a la vez, tranquila y silenciosa rodeada por bella naturaleza. Digno de disfrutar!

  • My friend Caitlin and I stayed with Lillian for 3 nights and absolutely loved our stay! While it is pricier to stay here than some other parts of town, as two young girls we felt safe walking around the Leblon neighborhood at any time and definitely felt at home in Lillian's lovely apartment. We were incredibly close to the beach, to restaurants (including the 24hr Padaria Lisboa), and to bus stops.

    Lillian is a lovely woman, very sweet and welcoming. Francesca, Lillian's housekeeper served us a wonderful breakfast every morning, kept the apartment incredibly tidy, and had a wonderful disposition as well!

    Overall, we had a wonderful stay!

  • We were 4 days more at Lilian's apartment. The room is big, very clean and comfortable, as in the photo. We had a bath also for us. The house is very well located, 2 minutes from the beach and well communicated, in a very calm and nice area. The breakfast is excellent. We had a great time and Lilian helped us in everything that we need. Thank you very much Lilian!

  • Estuvimos una noche en casa de Lilian y volveremos dentro de unos días. La casa es grande y acogedora. Esta situada en una zona muy bonita y tranquila a dos pasos de la playa. La habitación es amplia y confortable y tiene además una zona reservada para los huéspedes, que incluye un baño y una sala con televisión. Lilian habla perfectamente ingles y español, fue muy amable y nos ayudo en todo para preparar nuestra estancia en Río. El desayuno es estupendo. Nos sentimos muy bien en casa de Lilian y estamos deseando volver.

  • Lilian is a friendly, welcoming, helpful host. Would definitely recommend staying here to anyone. Comfortable private room in a beautiful apartment in one of the nicest/safest neighborhoods in Rio. Quiet room had a double bed, AC, and refrigerator. Lillian rents two rooms, so you may have to share the bathroom, but I stayed here during Carnival and 5 of us shared it, no problem. Apartment has WiFi, spacious sitting area, TV, and the stay included a good continental style breakfast. Can not beat the location: 5 minute walk to Leblon Beach, w/ buses to all over Rio available on the beachfront drive. Plenty of shopping and eating options available within walking distance.

  • Fantastic hostess, amazing location. Had a terrific stay great apartment, my room was spacious and very nice, with its own bathroom. Everything is in excellent condition, tasteful and very very clean. Lilian is extremely nice and has a fantastic housekeeper, who prepares a great breakfast and is very helpful all around (she even washed and ironed my shirts!). The apartment is located in the best part of Rio, you feel completely safe walking around even at night, very easy to get a cab and there is security on the street when you come home late. 2 mins from Leblon beach. Would definitely stay here again when back in Rio.

  • The room and apartment were both very nice. The apt is located on a quiet street and within five minutes you are close to good restaurants and the beach. Unfortunately, I could not enjoy the apt much because I was out most of the time. I would return again.

  • Lilian's apartment is located just after Leblon beach, only a few minutes away from it. The area is fab and very secure just a few steps away from shops and restaurants.
    Lilian herself (email hidden), welcomed me with my favourite juice (she asked previously which it was) and gave me a tour of the property. She has a lovely maid too who made us lovely breakfast every morning.
    I would reccomend this place to anyone and I will stay there again if I ever come back to Rio.

  • Lillian (email hidden)! Her apartment is a nice size and is located in a great neighborhood. She provided coffee and breakfast every morning and was very pleasant to deal with. There is another guest room that was booked at the time, but there is a 2nd bathroom, so it wasn't ever a problem. Thanks for a great time in Rio, Lillian!

At the moment, I work in my house with Airbnb assistance, I host and manage the rental of two bedrooms in my apartment in Leblon, Rio de Janeiro.
I’m truly excited to finally open my home to visitors! I’m a world traveler myself and know what it takes to make you feel comfortable and welcome. My home has been my refuge for over 30 years, now it’s your turn to enjoy what I think is the perfect location in all of Rio. Adding to it, I am an amateur tango dancer, love good music and do Pilates twice a week. These activities keep my body and mind in shape. LilianW
