About this listing
Living with a true "carioca" who loves her city is the best way to know Rio. I will be glad to give you tips and help you to enjoy my beloved city.
My rooms are confortable and cozy, with good quality matress and linen.
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.
This Room 1 here posted has cable TV and air conditioning. There is space enough for an extra single bed.
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.

Interaction with Guests
I am always here for my guests, but i also respect their privacy when i feel they want to be by themselves.
The neighborhood is safe and there are many shops, restaurants and bars all around. 5 minutes walking and you are at Copacabana Beach. More 20 minutes walking and you are at Ipanema Beach. There is a very nice bakery just at the corner and the subway is two blocks away.
Buses at the door and the subway two blocks away.
The living room area is private, but my guests are welcome at the veranda, where they can smoke, eat, have drinks or just relax.
I appreciate if guests turn of fans, light and air conditioning when not in the rooms.
The apartment it very comfortable and well located. The area is airy with many shops and restaurants within 5 minutes of the beach and metro station. She made us feel like home and we had a lot of fun together. Without doubt I would choose it again as host and i highly recommend with confidence for a successful vacation. Rio it's not the same without Sonia. We miss you!
Sonia is a great host. She is very caring, fun, friendly, and has helpful tips for whatever we wanted to do. The listing very closely meets reality. The beds are relatively comfy. The balcony off the living room is a great place to relax and gets a lot of sun in the morning. Copacabana is filled with places to eat (although they are quite touristy) but is also in walking distance of Ipanema and Leblon, for less touristy things.
Sonia was the perfect host during our Carnaval stay, she was so helpful, giving us brilliant tips and even providing fancy dress for us to wear. The apartment is great, just a couple of blocks from the beach with loads of good restaurants nearby. Can't recommend this place (or Sonia!) enough!
Stay at Sonia's apartment was great, the apartment was great and very homely , the location was perfect, very close to the metro, beach and the shops and supermarkets , I would 100% recommend you stay with Sonia during your visit to Rio
Our short stay at Sonia's apartment was really nice.
It is perfect located. You find everything what you need. And Sonia is a very kind person. She has been with us on the market around the corner, it was great fun. :)
I would recommend this apartment to everyone!
Clean basic room with a view on Cristo Redentor located close to the Copacabana beach, bus stop and subway. The kitchen is at your disposal and shops are located just around the corner. The apartment has a real Brazilian vibe, which was a great experience as a starting point for our trip through Brazil.
Sonia is a caring host with all kinds of information and tips about Rio.
Sonia was a great host and very supportive with all our belongings in and around Rio. We had Big Fun with her in "the center of universe" Copacabana. And although we had a lot of rain in Rio, Sonia's cheerful mind made up for the missing sun!

About the Host, Sonia
Sou jornalista free-lancer e adoro viajar e encontrar novas pessoas. Já me hospedei em casas de estrangeiros e gostei bastante da experiência. É uma forma bem legal poder visitar uma cidade através do olhar dos moradores.
E, se você quiser, você pode contar comigo para lhe ajudar a conhecer melhor o Rio de Janeiro: tenho mil e uma dicas para lhe dar! :-)
Sou bem comunicativa, mas também gosto de privacidade e, por isso, respeito muito o direito de meus hóspedes ficarem recolhidos e em paz, caso assim prefiram.
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.
