The Space

Hi! I have a lovely comfortable Bedroom with private Bathroom on the top floor of my apartment that will give you total privacy. It has a double bed, air conditioning, ceiling fan, internet and a lovely view to the woods. The apartment is near the beach (botafogo bay) and all the facilities, like malls (2) and cinemas (16).
Botafogo and Flamengo beach are famous for its parks and gardens made by Burle Marx, a great place for walk and jogging with a wonderful view of the Sugar Loaf. But the best thing about my place is the location. Half way to all the main attractions that you may want to go. 10 minutes to the Sugar Loaf (a 20min. walking that I highly recommend); 15 min. to the lift that brings you up to the "Christ the Redeemer"; 10 min. to Copacabana Beach or 20 to Ipanema and 15 min. to Downtown-Lapa.

I'm a separated 51 years old Graphic Designer and have a girlfriend that usually spends the weekends with me. A healthy breakfast is provided. You can have it with me or you can help yourself from the fridge. The kitchen is fully equipped and you are free to use it. Still want more? OK, I can lend you my bike once in a while, but please don't ask for my surfboard!
See you in Rio! Cheers.

  • Luiz was an extremely warm host - it felt more like hanging out with a good friend/roommate. He gave us lots of advice on things to do and directions on safe routes to take around the city. Every morning we had a nice simple breakfast with him in the dining room to chat about our plans for the day. The setup was very cozy. He definitely went out of his way to make sure we were always comfortable and happy - he even played ping pong with my husband in his complex's game room.
    The location is excellent for those who want easy access to everything, but don't want to be overwhelmed by crazy parties. Everything in his place is very clean and tidy.

  • Luiz’s stylish apartment is like a haven in the craziness of Rio! We felt really at home for the few days we were there. Luiz is the perfect host and was also very helpful when we needed it. The guest bedroom and bathroom is very comfortable and clean and the use of the computer and washing machine was valuable. The apartment block is very secure and we found it great value for money. I would recommend staying here to anyone.

  • This is my third time staying over with Luiz and the experience was excellent as usual. I have stayed at other locations in Rio and I have to say the value you get at Luiz's surpasses the rest.

    The suite provided by Luiz is kept clean, I can rest assured the linen provided is clean, and Luiz himself is an excellent host. He genuinely cares about your experience as a guest and is helpful as can be.

    I will definitely be spending time at Luiz's during my next visit to Rio.

  • Luiz was a wonderful host. He provided us with great tips which definitely made our stay in Rio so memorable. He made us breakfast each morning, gave us directions to key attractions and booked us a taxi to the airport. The room was great and we would highly recommend staying at Luiz's place.

  • The stay with Luiz was Superb!
    At first sight of his cozy home, "In my fiancés own words" It is AMAZING!! Then added with the unique personality of this host, the experience was Grand. The accommodation's and the breakfast was over the TOP!
    In my opinion, the things that Rio was Lacking, Luiz made up for with his professional service as a Bed and Breakfast host.
    If possible, at all request of his service, he was there to provide what ever was needed. He even made a special trip to the pharmacy to obtain a much needed medicine for me, and then to add his on potion which brought me back to life :) ...
    Your search for a room in the city of Rio De Janeiro.... Stops here... Perfect setting for someone single or a couple, the location was convenient and very safe.
    Luiz made you feel totally comfortable as if you were at your own home.. unforgettable experience !!... Thanks a million!!

  • We had a wonderful stay in the appartment of Luiz. A very clean room with airconditioning and a big bathroom for own use. We also could enjoy a fresh breakfast every morning which was great. The location is also ideal! A short walk to the metro station and also in the middle of the major sights (Lapa/Centro, sugarloaf mountain, cristo redentor, copocabana/ipanema beaches). Luiz is a very friendly host, easygoing, and was always there to provide us with any information we needed. We would definitely recommend this place!!

  • Luiz was auch a wonderful host! We really felt welcome in his nice apartment.
    The very clean room has its own bathroom, which is really good. You have your own privacy, but also can have a lovely made breakfast with him and talk abou Rio, places to go and other things... He helped us out a lot. Thanks Luiz!
    Botafogo is also a nice and safe area, with some good bars and restaurants.
    We can highly recommend to stay at Luiz'.

About
Hi, my name is Luiz. I'm a brazilian guy who loves nature and sports. Surf used to be a great part of my life but now I'm more into tennis (I think I'm getting old!). I'm a 50 years old graphic designer who spends most of the day out working (not 9 to 5 but rather 10am to 8pm)! My grandfather was german and I studied german in school until I was 15 years (lets see how much I remember). I'm divorced and have a girlfriend that eventually spends the weekends with me. I also like architecture and home decoration and my house reflects that. I have a daughter (with me in the picture) who's married and living in the UK so now I have a spare room in my apartment that I can share with other people. I'm pretty much an organized person who likes the house to be fresh and clean so I appreciate people not to wear shoes inside the house. Overall I'm a relaxed and easygoing person as you will find out by yourself. Hope to see you in Rio! Luiz
