About This Listing
This is our family home. I was born in Copacabana and i love my place! We love to share it with people that are coming to visit Rio and we wish always to be a better host !
I have a suite room (with private bathroom) for short term rental.
The apartment is in a quiet and safety street, far from favelas, 5 minutes walking to the beach and to the subway Arcoverde station.
The apartment is all equiped and furnished, cable tv, internet, wi-fi, wash machine.Maide service upon request for daily cleaning.
The room available has a double bed and one single bed, air conditioning,cable tv. We bought a new mattress, as 2 guests complained that the first one was too hard. We bought one that it is not to hard and not too soft! :)
Towels and linens are provided. The kitchen is full equiped with all you need to feel at home.
It is located at Assis Brasil street, in the heart of Copacabana but in a quiet street close to the preservation´s park of Chacrinha, where you can see the native forest of Copacabana, and even feed little monkeys.
In a 5 minutes walking distance you are in the beach.
All the services you need you have around just a few steps: supermarkets, transportation of every kind, restaurants, sight seeings, cinemas, shoppings, banks, supermarkets...
We share all the social areas! We have also an service area with laundry machine.
Interaction with Guests
We love to give all the information the guests need.
We respect privacy!
Copacabana it is the princess of the sea....strategic place where you have all the services and transportation to everywhere, all kinds. And the beauty of the beach and mountains.... The people, so mixed, so happy and calm. A lot to do, shows, restaurants, night clubs, groceries, supermarkets, banks....
Copacabana it is the key to everywhere!
Buses, metro, taxis....no problem to go for everywhere!
I hope you feel at home, safety, loving the place and respecting the rules of the house, that are not many, but ....like....closing the window when you go out, also turn off the air conditioning, and washing the feet in the garage when coming back from the beach...
Please don´t bring strange people home.
It is a family building, so please be part respecting the rules!
Sobre nossa estadia no apê da Dália: recepção excepcional, com muitas dicas ótimas que contribuíram para que nossa viagem fosse tranquila e gostosa! Dicas quentes como o pãozinho do posto (“O melhor do Rio!”) que fica a alguns passos da entrada do prédio fizeram nossos cafés o melhor início de dia que podíamos ter! O apartamento é exatamente como ilustrado pelas fotos do anúncio, bem localizado e limpo. A suíte em que ficamos era bem grande e confortável. A Sra. Olga (Mãe da Dália) nos acolheu com carinho e nos sentimos muito à vontade ali. Queremos voltar!
Fue un servicio excelente, Dalia y su hermana me trataron muy bien y me sentí muy cómodo.
Limpieza muy buena, la ubicación excelente, a lado del metro y a 2 calles de la playa.
Super recomendable, espero regresar nuevamente. :)
Nos sentimos em casa, desde a chegada até nossa partida. Não conhecíamos o Rio, simplesmente foi uma grande e valiosa experiência. Suite aconchegante, Anfitriões super atenciosos e localidade excepcional.
Very welcoming host, we loved our stay there. The place is clean, close to Copacabana beach and very secured. They have doorman / security personal 24 hours and the building is in very good area. This place is also closed to Metro like 1 block.
The room is clean , have separate bathroom and perfect for your stay in Rio.
Dalia (host) was very helpful and helped us during our stay. I highly recommend this place.
Die wohnung war sehr sauber und macht einen sehr guten Eindruck. Dalia haben wir zwar nicht kennen gelernt aber ihre Schwester war sejr freundlich und hilfsbereit. Die Lage ist auch sehr gut.
I really enjoyed my 3 week stay at Dalia's apartment. Although I never had the pleasure of meeting Dalia, her parents were very helpful and welcoming. One of the reasons I came to Rio was to learn more Portuguese. On a number of occasions Dalia's mom helped me with my pronunciation and usage. She also gave me advice about staying safe in Rio.
My bedroom with private bath was very comfortable. I slept well every night, after a nice warm shower. The WiFi internet connection worked well, and I Skyped with family and friends in the US on several occasions. The apartment is close to Copacabana beach--once I timed how long it took to walk to the beach, about 8 minutes. (It would have taken less without the traffic lights :-) ) Many grocery stores and restaurants are very nearby. I felt safe in the neighborhood around the apartment.
I didn't do any cooking during my stay, but I often stored a little yogurt in the family refrigerator. Most days I would buy one meal at a restaurant, and bring some French bread, peanuts, and fruit to my bedroom for breakfast & supper.
I stayed in late Nov and early Dec. Mosquitos weren't much of a problem. At night I was bitten once or twice. I brought DEET, but it wasn't worth the trouble to put it on.
Dalia's apartment is half a block away from a Metro station. At first I was intimidated by the Metro, but once I tried it, I was very impressed with how useful it is. The Rio Metro website has suggestions on how to use the Metro, & bus system to arrive at common tourist attractions. With this information, I visited the statue of Christ on Corcovado, and took the cable car up Pão de Açúcar. Google maps also has very helpful information about using the Metro/bus system. I used it to visit Escadaria Selarón.
Several times during my visit I got lost a little bit, or made little goofs. I was impressed by the helpfulness and kind heartedness of the Brazilians I met!
Dear Wallace! I am so happy that you had a good time with us! My parents got very happy about your comments and they are sending a big hug for you! Yes, in the end of the year i am busy finishing the classes and shows with my students in Petropolis, and couldn't come ... I hope you will come next time and maybe you can come to Petropolis too, as i am starting to host here in my beautiful home in the royal city of brasil, in the rain forest. Thank you very much for all! Kisses!!!!
Very nice apartment in an easy to find location only a couple of minutes from the beach.
I took a taxi from the airport and the driver new exactly the address.
It is a central location close to cafes and restaurants.
The family are very welcoming.
