Great large bedroom in a three bedroom apartment in the Posto 6 neighborhood of Copacabana. Right on the beach, this room gives you a desk, closet, printer, aircon, wifi and a double bed. Perfect for exploring all of Rio de Janeiro and then relaxing!

The Space

I am renting two bedrooms in a spacious 3 bedroom apartment in a building on the beach front in Copacabana! This is the listing for the second bedroom at $65.

This apartment is superbly located on Avenida Atlantica at the safe end of Copacabana beach. It is a fantastic location to explore all of Rio de Janeiro. Ipanema is a short 5 minute walk away and bus stops to all destinations in Rio are right across the street. Economical airport buses drop you off literally at the front of the building for R$13 vs. R$50 for a metered taxi. The subway station is 10 mins away by foot.

Both bedrooms have double beds, air conditioning and cable internet (10 mb "N" WiFi). Perfect for singles or couples. The apartment is in the back of the building so no sea views but it is quiet which is priceless here in bustling Rio de Janeiro. There is a full service kitchen with microwave means you can cook all your meals yourself.

Supermarkets and great restaurants are just steps away. There is a fantastic 24/7 restaurant on the same block with wonderful restaurant choices up and down Avenida Atlantica. The beach kiosks across the street are open all night for those spontaneous midnight coconut water or caipirinha runs.

Rio has a reputation as a violent and dangerous destination but this is rapidly changing. This apartment is one of the safest places in Rio. There is a 24/7 doorman on call in the building to let you in and out and attend to any and all requests. When the entire apartment is rented, I am in an adjoining unit and am readily available.

This is a great value bedroom on the beach in Rio de Janeiro.

Guest Access

Guests have access to the entire apartment- kitchen, living room and all associated items including a stand up surfboard (prior notice required to inflate it.)

Interaction with Guests

I make it a point to personally greet all guests when possible and show them the premises and the neighborhood. I am available pretty much 24/7 but I give the guests lots of privacy. I tend to be out of the area on weekends but respond quickly to emails or phone.

The Neighborhood

Posto 6 combines the best of easy access to upscale Ipanema as well as more moderately priced Copacabana. Must do's are the sunsets from Arpoador rock and I recommend visiting the forts on either end of Copacabana beach.

Getting around

Lots of buses down the main beach road and 7 minutes by foot to the Ipanema metro stop.

  • My experience in Rio was awesome! I spent two weeks at this residence and everything was very smooth from my first step into the apartment all the way to my last.

    I felt extremely safe at the apartment partly because there was a 24/7 doorman but also because I also had a key to my own room so I could keep my things locked away. Little things like this helped me have a little peace of mind.

    David was very helpful and welcoming, he asked several times if there was anything that he could to make my experience better.

    The apartment is close to Grocery stores, banks, restaurants, and beaches. I would highly recommend this place to anyone looking to stay for 2 days or 2 weeks!

  • Staying at David's apartment was very pleasant. The equipment and description of the accommodation corresponds entirely to the display. The location is ideal,
    the beach, town center are within close proximity. Also, I felt very safe in the area. David is very friendly, helpful and communicative. Happy still, nice greetings from Chur.

  • David's apartment is in the perfect location - on the road that runs along Copacabana beach (also where you get the airport buses from) and 10 mins walk to Ipanema. The room we stayed in was very large, had excellent wifi and air con, David was a very helpful host - showed us around the area and explained everything we needed to know about Rio. Had access to kitchen with all the appliances we needed - very useful when staying in expensive Rio for 8 nights! I would definitely recommend David's place to anyone.

  • David was an excellent host during our stay and his apartment is in the perfect location on Copacabana beach. David's recommendations for attractions and things to do were great and my friend and I had an amazing time. I highly recommend staying in his apartment if you get the chance.

  • David was a great host and thoroughly enjoyed my stay with him. He gave me lots of helpful advice on good places to go for music and eating locally.

    The apartment is very well located, in a older style building with lots of charm and good security and right on the Copacabana beach. You were also in walking distance of Ipanema beach, subway and the buses right outside your door.

    The room was clean and comfortable and very little noise. He provided good internet connection as well.

    Dont hesitate to stay with David.

  • Great host, great location! Thanks for taking the time to show me around David. It made my rainy trip so much better!

    If you want to be by the beach and have a host who knows the Carioca lifestyle. You should stay at David's.

  • Enjoyed my stay in Rio! The location of David's apartment is fantastic! David met me on my arrival day and got me oriented to the neighbourhood and the apartment. He was most helpful and friendly! Our paths didn't cross too much during my stay...tho he was only an email away! I would recommend staying at David's place.

  • Copacabana 해변 바로 앞에 닿아 있으며 Ipanema 해변까지도 걸어서 갈 수 있는 매력적인 위치를 가지고 있음.
    방의 컨디션은 나쁘지 않으나, 엘레베이터 소음이 벽을 통해 전달됨.
    (밤 늦은 시간은 그리 들리지 않아서 큰 문제가 되지는 않았음)
    데이비드와의 커뮤니케이션은 영어가 잘 통함으로 의사소통에 문제가 없고, 주변의 상점, 음식점등의 위치를 상세히 알려줌(친절함)

About
Hi! I am a native San Franciscan relocated to Rio de Janeiro. I like outdoor activities and I love to show people the best Rio has to offer. Beach vollyball, hiking to the Christ statute and to hidden waterfalls, night swimming in Arpoador, biking around Lagoa, stand-up surfing right out the front door. Combined with the fantastic nightlife, this makes Rio a truly wonderful city. I am offering this two bedroom apartment at a budget price to help you save money for what really counts when travelling - experiences!
