There is no better way to visit a place then staying with a local.
Welcome to my house!
I live in a spacious apartment in the very heart of Copacabana and i rent TWO bedrooms for travelers. There is a well equiped kitchen (you may use it) and the washing machine is available. Good Wi-fi conection all around the house.
The place is cozy, near the Copacabana Beach and also to all shops, markets, bars and the subway. There is a nice veranda where you can smoke, have some drinks and meals, or just relax at the hammock. The neighborhood is safe, familiar and the building has 24 hours secutity. The rooms are very confortable and with good quality linen, as well as the towels i provide (100% cotton).
Both rooms have a nice powerful ceiling fan and room 1 has also air conditioning.
Both rooms share one bathroom, i have one for my own.
I am a journalist, well traveled, speak english and some french. I understand that travelers like to know about the city and about the places that are not for tourists only and i will be glad to help you in anyway i can to make your experience more enjoyable.
I am a very friendly spirit, like to comunicate with people, but don't worry: am also very concerned about the guest's privacy.
Greetings from Rio. Hope to see you soon...
*I am recomended on TripAdvisor
* This price is for TWO persons.
*IF YOU WANT TO BOOK FOR 5 PERSONS, PLEASE REQUEST FOR BOTH ROOMS SEPARATELY, OK?
You may use the kitchen and the laudry as much as you like.
You can also relax, eat, have some drinks and smoke at the veranda.
As a true "carioca" citizen, i like to talk about the city, give some tips, explain our way of living and dealing with life, but i am also very concerned about the other's (and mine) privacy.
This area is the "cherry of the cake": very central and safe, comerce and public transportation all around. Also very close to the beach and to many different kind of bars and restaurants.
The apartment is very quiet and has 24 hours security.
You can take buses, taxis and subway to everywhere in town just at the corner.
From the airport, buses and taxis arrive here (or near) very easy.
Good humor is the way to happiness.
Also kindness and concerning about the environment. So, please, turn off ventilator and air conditioning when you leave the house, ok?
No visitors in the house.
Sonia was a great host. She knows were to go and what you have to see. The apartment is nice and beautiful. Absolutely recommendable. Thank you very much.
What was offered was exactly what I found at this place. Sonia was a great host. She is open-minded, relaxed and always up for giving some good advice about places to visit. The neighborhood area was also good. No problems at all. Overall experience has been quite successful! Hope to catch up with you soon, Sonia.
Foi tudo super legal. O apartamento e de facil acceso e perto de tudo. Sonia e uma pessoa aberta, muito carinhosa e calida. Ela da boas dicas de lugares pra conhecer... (uma pena nao deu pra ficar mais dias). Eu viajei con minha familia e tudo mundo ficou muito contento com a eleicao do lugar, e tudo como se mostra nas fotos. Super recomendavel!
Sonia was a great host, very helpful and joyful. Her flat is very clean and well located in Rio. We definitely recommend it!
Sonia was a wonderful host and her apartment is the perfect place to stay in Rio. The bed was very comfortable and the room looked very nice. The apartment has all the facilities you need, and more! We felt very welcome. Sonia was very flexible and showed us everything we needed to know when we arrived. During our stay, she was very helpful whenever we had questions. She even went to the hospital with us when my friend got sick. When I come back to Rio I would definitely want to stay with Sonia again. I would recommend her apartment to everyone!!
Thank you Sonia :)
I had a great time staying at Sonia' cozy rooms in Copacabana, it was well located to access the beach and ideal for taking the metro. We felt at home in the penthouse as its roomy and comfortable. Sonia was a superb host and is very knowledgeable on the Carioca life and the best places to go and visit. There is also a great bakery just round the corner which I highly recommend as the pastries and cakes are lovely. I would definitely stay with Sonia again.
I had a great experience staying with Sonia. Sonia is very welcoming and helpful when you have questions about the area. She made me feel like staying at home. I highly recommend staying with Sonia!

Sou jornalista free-lancer e adoro viajar e conhecer pessoas. Já me hospedei um mes em Toulouse (França) nesse esquema bed and breakfast e gostei bastante. Primeiro, pelo preço mais camarada e depois por ter tido a oportunidade de conhecer mais intimamente a vida dos moradores da cidade e de ter tido dicas e conselhos menos "turísticos".
Gosto de privacidade também e por isso respeito muito o direito de meus hóspedes ficarem recolhidos e em paz.
Sou da teoria do "viva e deixe viver" desde que isso não interfira na vida do outro. Gosto de respeito e de ser respeitada.
Enfim, sou uma pessoa fácil de se conviver.
