The owner is renting his own home, so it is a real "home sweet home"! It is very well furnished and there is complimentary wi-fi internet access and cable TV.

It is located only three blocks away from the Leblon Beach and at walking distance to Ipanema Beach. It is also close to the beautiful Rodrigo de Freitas Lagoon as well as to many restaurants, snack bars, night clubs, supermarkets, drugstores, convenience stores, retail stores, movie theaters, theaters and malls.

Interaction with Guests

The owner is an authentic Carioca (born in Rio) and will be happy to give you tips about the city.

The Neighborhood

Leblon is one of the most exclusive and safe neighborhoods in Rio. It is an affluent neighborhood just west from Ipanema. In the north it is bordered by Gávea and in the west by a towering hill (where people do hang gliding) which connects to São Conrado and Barra - where you can find the best spots for surfing and kite surfing in Rio.

It´s very much like Ipanema but even more exclusive. In the opinion of most “cariocas” - term used for people that are born in Rio - Leblon is the Rio's best neighborhood with lots of restaurants and bars; some of them are open 24 hours a day. People use to go there to enjoy life and eat late at night.

In a recent research for a big magazine, cariocas said that Leblon is the place where you find more pretty people per square foot.

Other Things to Note

On Sundays you have an excellent opportunity to buy souvenirs at the Feira Hippie - the Ipanema Craft Traditional Market, where you have also the chance to taste Acarajé - one of the most exquisite national dishes.

  • This is a great place to stay in one of the nicest neighborhoods in Rio. Lots of space and just a few blocks from the beach. Thea and Gui were very helpful leading up to our arrival and made sure our stay was comfortable. The neighborhood is very safe and close to the main shopping and eating areas. We had a great experience during the World Cup and would definitely stay here again on our next trip to Rio

  • Thea and Gui were the perfect hosts. They not only left fresh fruit, coconut water, filtered water, mango juice, but also were kind enough to include maps and suggestions for places to go. They really went above and beyond with leaving us towels and toiletries as well.This apartment is in an extremely safe and cute part of Leblon, and was super convenient. So easy to get in touch and communicate with them during the trip, They also helped with calling us cab to the airport. Thank you so much, Thea and Gui! We could not have enjoyed your lovely apartment more!

  • Staying in Guilherme and Thea's apartment in Leblon made our trip to Brazil. The location in Rio simply could not be better. Located in the heart of Leblon, it is only a few blocks from the best restaurants, shops and the most amazing beach that Rio has to offer. It was around the block from the grocery store and an international bank. Being three girls, we also felt safe to walk around at night, which was wonderful.

    The apartment itself is as advertised- fully equipped with everything you could possibly need during your stay. It is spacious and clean. There is air conditioning in every room.
    Guilherme and Thea went above and beyond by leaving us towels, sarongs, and even some fruit, drinks and snacks in the fridge.

    We are so grateful to have stayed in this apartment and would definitely recommend it to anyone and everyone traveling to Rio in the future.

    Thanks again Guilherme and Thea!

  • I have stayed at Guilhermes place for 4 days over New Years Eve 2011 / 2012 with friends of mine. We had a wonderful time at the apartment which is located in a very safe and nice area of Rio close to the beach.
    We felt very welcome and everything was proper and clean - also the handing over of the apartment went perfectly fine. We were really pleased with the whole stay. Thank you.

  • The accommodations were great. The location is within walking distance of the beach and a lot of restaurants. The apartment is roomy and comfortable. There was a water filtering system, which was great. Free wi-fi. Gui even added special touches that were very nice like a large bowl of fresh Brazilian fruits and a fridge stocked for us with sodas, beer, and water.
