Perfect place to stay in Carnival, friendly and experienced hosts, great access to public transport and the beaches, and a spacious apartment and bedroom for resting and relaxing.
The 3-bedroom apartment is just across from Siqueira Campos subway station, so you are never more than about 30 minutes away from any destination in central and southern Rio!
The apartment is a clean and relaxed place, with 2 bedrooms with double beds, an office and a large living room.
There is also a small 'maid's room' in the main flat, which has two single beds and a basic bathroom. Some guests like to put one of these beds in the office and use that as a bedroom. Air mattresses are also available.
We've been renting out the spare room on Airbnb since the start of 2012 and have hosted a lot of guests since then. We've had nothing but positive reviews! The apartment is a great base for going to the beach and exploring the city by day and night.
Facilities in the apartment include broadband WiFi, a washing machine, a new flatscreen TV with cable and DVD, a good sized bathroom and a fully equipped kitchen with a family-sized fridge. The building has round the clock security.
The final price includes weekly maid service.
Copacabana is by far the most practical, fun and best value place to stay in Rio. The apartment is very close to everything you might need, such as a shopping centre, an antiques market, a tapas bar, a bookshop, a nightclub, farmers' markets on Wednesday and Sunday, and of course lots of restaurants, bars, supermarkets and banks. It's the ultimate walkable neighbourhood!
We've never had any problems so far.

In Brazil, the toilet paper goes in the bin next to the toilet, not down the bowl.
Don't take the towels to the beach, you can rent a chair or buy a Brazilian canga
Spacious apartment, great location near metro and has everything you need. Wonderful, responsive hosts as well.
We had a wonderful visit to Rio-we loved the people,sightseeing, the food, the weather , the beautiful scenery and Ludmilla's and Mark's apartment!! The apartment was very comfortable and spacious and in perfect location-close to the beach, shopping, eating and all transportation. We did get to meet Mark-so very pleasant-sorry we did not get to meet Ludmilla-she was always so prompt, helpful and nice whenever I E-mailed her for info before we arrived in Rio. We certainly would stay at their apartment again! Thanks for sharing your home...
Mark was a fantastic host. I really felt at home in their apartment. He took time out to show us around the surrounding streets pointing out the metro (which is 2 min from the flat), bus stops, bars and restaurants. No complaints at all.
Mark and Ludmilla's flat was a great base for exploring Rio. Comfortable, clean and right in Copacabana. They were also both really useful, even providing accommodation in Brasilia too!
Ludmilla and Mark were lovely and easygoing hosts who truly made me feel at home in Rio. Ludmilla was prompt in carrying out the arrangements and lots of fun when she was home from working in Brasilia. Mark was present much of the time and went out of his way to help out with day-to-day concerns and confusing errands. The apartment is very cute and well-located, right by the subway with a less than 10-minute walk to the beach. Neighborhood has everything you'd need, including grocery store, pharmacy, restaurants, Sunday market, etc. Fantastic stay, highly reccomended.
An amazing host and a great place to stay. It was minutes away from the copacabana beach and right next door to the metro station. Mark was extremely helpful and had great tips to share. Would definitely stay here again!
We really enjoyed the room and the house is in a very good position,near Copacapana Beach :-)
We didn't know Ludmilla, but Mark is a very kind host..he made us feel like home.
If I return to Brasil,I will go there definitely.

Hi my name is Ludmilla and I love travel and cultural exchanges. I work in Brasília with an international organisation, and also spend a lot of time in Rio de Janeiro. I use Airbnb a lot both as a host and as a guest and I love getting to know open-minded people from other cultures!
