Bedroom suite with private bathroom and breakfast.
In the heart of Copacabana, close to the beach and everything you need !!!
At the end of the day spent in the noisy, hot, crowded, excited Rio, you will bless a quiet, green, fresh place ... in the heart of Copacabana... very close to the beach...
This is our place and we welcome you.
For you, one big and nice bedroom with its private bathroom.
We live there my husband and I, it's an appartment but it's as if we were in a house with a garden in the heart of the city and next to the beach. There's internet wifi, it's near all commodities, buses and metro station you need in a safe place and you find a supermarket in front of the house, a good bakery, a pharmacy on the corner and 2 international banks which allow to withdraw cash.
Furthermore, there is a 24 hours doorman service in the building.
The place is quiet and safe, the beds have mattresses in latex, antiallergic, and the air conditioning has a timer. You can have two separate beds or a big one.
We bought this appartment to the worldwide famous writer, Paulo Coelho , who lived there many years ago, while writing " The alchimist " which made him famous. We want you to feel at home in our sweet home, and we will do our best to bring you a great comfort, so be welcome !!!
If you prefer, we also rent a little apartment in Copacabana.

To come from the airport, you can take a yellow cab, which is safe, the price is around 65/75 reais.
Thank's for respecting our neighbors and not doing noise after 10 pm, especially on the terrace.
The apartment was very beautiful, perfectly located and exactly like described in here. I really enjoyed my stay here.
My room and the rest of the apartment is very nice furnished. The neighborhood is safe and it is really easy to get a taxi, a bus or the metro from there. Everything (including Copacabana beach) is in 3-5 minutes walking distance.
On top Alexandra really was the perfect host, giving me tips about my trip and the different sites in Rio. The email communication was just as good.
I really want to come back and will defintely recommend Alexandra to friends visiting Rio.
Alexandra and Yves were GREAT hosts. I stayed 4 nights at their place and it has been perfect.
The house is spacious, clean, decorated with good tastes and we were provided with all necssities. Every morning we start the day by having breakfast together at their lovely terrace and talking about everything. Alexandra and Yves are themselves very well-travelled so they have a lot to share. They were also very helpful in giving us advices on getting around, assisted us to get tickets and asks their houseworker Andrea to show us around feleva.The location of their apartment is very convenient with walking distance to the beach and lots of bars and restaurants.
Overall our experience has been great and we will definitely recommend their place! Thank you so much Alexandra and Yves, have a nice trip in New Zealand and Asia!
Quel super séjour chez Alexandra et Yves ! On a été si bien accueillit qu'on serait bien restés un peu plus longtemps. Leur aide et leurs conseils nous ont été très précieux pour optimiser nos déplacements et nos visites dans cette grande ville qu'est Rio. De très bons moments à discuter nous on aussi permis d'apprendre pleins de choses sur la vie au quotidien dans cette ville. Durant le moment privilégié du petit déjeuner, ils nous ont fait découvrir un peu de la nourriture local. La chambre est spacieuse, la salle de bain grande et pratique. Tout est propre et entretenu. Leur terrasse est très appréciable, et le tout est au calme! Calme qui vaut de l'or après une journée en plein coeur de la ville. Nous les remercions énormément, ainsi qu'Andrea, pour ces super moments passés !
Alexandra and Yves are great hosts, very warm, welcoming and helpful. The apartment is really an oasis in the middle of the crowded Copacabana. The bedroom is spacious, clean and very well furnished, as all the house, and it is exactly as showed in pictures. Having breakfast in the fabulous terrace with them was wonderful . I have stayed before in a hotel in Rio and it was much more pleasant this experience for the same price. Highly recommended.
Alexandra and Yves were truly great hosts! We landed into Rio late in the evening- they were both there to greet us at the door and show us around, we were provided with the wifi password, two sets of keys and given a brief history of the apartment (as the previous owner was Paulo Coelho). The room and the rest of the apartment were very clean, the beds were made and there were clean towels placed on the bed for us to use. The bathroom was also clean and fully stocked with toiletries (including shampoo and shower gel).
We stayed for two nights and had breakfast with Alexandra and Yves in the mornings. The apartment looks exactly like the pictures, it is peaceful and welcoming and something you will have to experience. I appreciated the nice breakfast Alexandra and Yves prepared for us each morning- we sat outside on the terrace together and what a nice way to start the day. They were very helpful in giving us advice on places to see and things to do- they both have very good knowledge of the city. The apartment is located very close to the Copacabana beach and is surrounded by many shops and restaurants. It was really easy to get around the area and you will have no problems walking around or finding a taxi.
Overall I had a fantastic stay, they were great hosts and I would definitely stay with them again. Thanks for your hospitality, you made us feel as if it was our home.
Quartier très agréable et très vivant à quelques minutes à pied de la plage de Copacabana. L'appartement est très agréable et la chambre bien agencée avec sa propre salle de bain le tout indépendant du reste de l'habitation. Nous avons été très bien reçues, Alexandra nous a donné plein de bons conseils et le petit déjeuner est un délice !!
Craquer pour Rio et opter pour le nid d'Alexandra et Yves sont les garants d'un séjour réussi et auront été le choix du roi pour Louis et moi! Outre la situation idéale sur Capacabana, à deux pas de toutes les commodités et de la plage, d'un appartement topissime et d'une chambre digne des revues déco, c'est avant tout la qualité de l'accueil dont nous nous souviendrons. Mettre son réveil pour nous ouvrir la porte au petit matin, nous offrir notre chambre bien avant l'heure, réserver nos excursions... voilà quelques exemples de ce qu'Alexandra et Yves n'ont pas hésité à faire pour nous faciliter le séjour.
Merci pour ces précieux moments, ces petits déj délicieux et les heures de causette qui s'ensuivaient. Rencontrer et accueillir des inconnus des quatre coins du monde avec tant de plaisir et de disponibilité n'est pas donné à tous!
