best zone in town. beachside.
Great apartment for up to 3 people. Best price x benefit in town. The flat has a garage you can use to park a car. Bright place with a lot of sun, spacious great view over copacabana, and only four blocks from the beach (7 minutes walking). Magnificent area known as the Oasis of Copacabana. Safe and secure area! Splended site seeing, palmtrees, great moonrise. Close to the Metro station Siqueira Campos, to bus connexions and taxis, shops, restaurants and all kind of services. You are in busy Copacabana, but the apartment is very peaceful. A real Oasis! Planned by an architect, the flat simple although decorated with contemporary art. A real "Carioca" way of living. Absolutely charming. There is wi-fi 20 Mb, TV, soundbox (for pen drive, mp3 player, radio) and DVD. It consists in a living room with sofa and armachairs, bathroom and a fully functional kitchen with basic necessaries, as plates, glasses, knives, forks, coffe filters, provided. There is an airconditioner in the livingroom that refreshes the whole place up, fan in the bedrooms. Perfect for a couple with children or 3 friends. Beds for 3 people: one real queen size bed in the main sleeping room and one real single bed in the second room, which is smaller. So you will have two bedrooms, one larger with magnificent view and other one is small with a view to the buildings courtyard. Please check the pictures to see the conditions of the flat.

Other Things to Note
We have a really special spot in Rio, centered in copacabana but at the same time you are in a silent place. Special.
1)Only the people announced in the reservation are allowed to stay overnight in the apartment.
2)At arrival, the doorman will ask for guests ID, so please have your ID with you.
3)When you come back from the beach, please wash the sand off in the garage's foot sink and use the service elevator.
4)Please use small trash bags and throw your trash every day in the trash hole at the stairways (never through bigger objects). Large mineral water bottles should be left on the staircase as well as larger rubbish.
5)Please avoid loud music or any loud noises between 9 pm and 8 am.
6)The doorman works every day except for Sundays, and has break between noon and 4 pm the rest of the week. But he is there all night and is the best person you need.
7)Never leave the windows open when you leave the flat, even with good weather, we are in the tropics and the weather can change very fast.
8)Be aware you REALLY close the door when you leave the flat. Sometimes it seems you did but it´s hasn’t been closed. And be aware the door door knob doesn´t work from the outside so you will always need the key to go in.
9)There are three big supermarkets close by on Rua Siqueira Campos: Horti fruti, Pão de Açucar and Mundial.
10)On the fridge you have numbers for ordering delivery food, laundry, pharmacy and other services.
11) for hot water turn the right tap on the shower until the end and wait for about 60 seconds to heat up. For hot water on the sink do the same thing. If you only want cold water don´t turn it much.
12)If you need to reset the Internet rooter please take it out the force count to 10 and put it back in.
13) Internet instructions: look for "Davinci" and login using "benvindos" as password.
14) most important, enjoy your stay!!!
Rebecca answered all emails very swiftly and even gave me directions on getting to the flat. I did not get to meet Rebecca but her mother made sure that I had everything that I needed. Rebecca is a gracious host and has a cool head in emergencies and one did arise. I am forever grateful for them making me feel welcome and at home.
Although we didn't meet Rebecca, she made the welcome via Raphael very easy. Her flat is lovely and quite near bus and metro stops. It is about 500m from Copacabana beach. There are lots of eateries and shops in the vicinity. The flat is light and airy and is on the 7th floor (there is a lift!) so it has views out over the town but not the sea. Her bed is very comfortable and the flat is quiet. We loved our stay there and felt relaxed.
Ótimo apartamento, tudo conforme anunciado. Local limpo e bem organizado que oferece tudo para uma estadia perfeita em Copacabana.
Recomendo a quem tiver interesse.
Great place in a great location – in the heart of Copacabana, 10 minutes from the beach in very safe neighborhood. Everything in the apartment was as described – it is clean, big and with a nice view from panoramic windows.
I cannot forget to mention about the doormen Raphael – such a friendly and warm person, always ready to help you. Highly recommended!
O apartamento tem ótima localização e é bem confortável. A sala é ampla, o colchão muito bom, a ducha uma delícia! O porteiro foi muito simpático e estava sempre disposto a nos ajudar. Nosso único problema foi o calor. O ar condicionado realmente é fraco e só à noite o apartamento ficava mais agradável.
The apartment is very nice and as in the pictures. It has a great view and amazing light. It was clean and all ready before my arrival. Located in the great Copacanana neighbourhood, it's takes 10min by foot to get to the beach. I didn't have the pleausure to meet Rebecca personally but the doorman was there for the arrival and departure. Muito obrigado! Rio is fabulous!
Pelas fotos e descrição do apartamento no site, eu já sabia que só havia 1 aparelho de ar condicionado no apartamento, porém não contava que o aparelho fosse tão ruim e tão mal posicionado. O ar condicionado está instalado num canto da sala, numa espécie de corredor que dá acesso ao banheiro e ao quarto. Resultado: não resfria a sala e muito menos o quarto. No verão no Rio de Janeiro com temperaturas próximas a 40º, é imprescindível um bom ar condicionado. Sentimos muito calor! O apartamento bate muito sol de manhã e seria ideal uma cortina blackout nas janelas da sala, visto que há também uma cama alí. Muito desconfortável neste aspecto. No quarto, só há um pequeno ventilador. Nem todas as janelas abertas resolvem o calor que faz no Rio nesta época. O anfitrião deve substituir o aparelho de ar condicionado urgentemente! Infelizmente não gostei, pois conforto é fundamental.
Oi Marcelo, eu mesma fiquei duas noites antes de você no apartamento. O ar estava funcionando bem. Senti frio, tive que desliga-lo. Acho que voce não soube usar o ar condicionado. Poderia ter entrado em contato conosco para perguntar ou pedir ajuda. Certamente, foi um problema de funcionamento. De tora forma, os dias em que esteve no Rio de Janeiro, como estava estampado em todas as manchetes dos jornais, foram os mais quentes desde 1880. Sugiro melhor comunicação com seu proximo anfitrião. Estamos sempre dispostos em ajudar.
