In the heart of Copacabana, close to the beach and everything you need !!!

The Space

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, in an appartment (email hidden) terrace.
We live there my husband, my son and myself (and our little dog Tobbie), 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 (email hidden) 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.

  • Me and my friend have been living with Alexandra during our trip to rio de janeiro. It really is the perfect place if you want to discover Rio with its beaches and highlights. We enjoyed the hospitality of Alexandra, Yves and Max very much. The appartment looks like on the photos, everybody was very kind and very obliging. We got some usefull tipps around our trip from them and the breakfast was delicious and fresh. If we will go back to Rio we hope that we can stay with them again in the wonderful appartment with the nice garden!

  • We had a wonderful time, definitely the best place to stay in Rio.
    Alex and Yves are a great couple who made us feel like home and gave us a lot of recommendations of do's and dont's in Rio. Their apartment is well located, very clean and beautifully decorated. If going back to Rio, will stay with you guys again!!! Thanks for everything, we had a blast!

  • My stay at Alexandra’s and Yves’ apartment epitomizes the AirBnB experience. I arrived a stranger and left as family.

    First off, this apartment is stunning. Alexandra and Yves have put great effort in the finer details, like: ambient lighting, curated furniture, quality bedding and beautiful wall art. Beyond the aesthetics, the space was immaculate and very comfortable. Alexandra and Yves also have an uncanny intuition for knowing how to make your stay more memorable. They arranged a personal tour of the Favelas, gave fantastic recommendations and most of all, taught and shared with me the Rio way of life. I will miss my daily breakfasts with them, where we talked and laughed over fresh pastries, cheese, and coffee, and were accompanied by their ever-zealous Jack Russell Terrier, Tobbie.

    My top 3 tips on Rio: 1) order Picahna, 2) go to a Bossa Nova bar, and 3) stay in this apartment.

  • My boyfriend and I had a great experience in Alexandra's lovely apartment in Copacabana. Alexandra and Yves were extremely welcoming and made our five day stay very pleasant.They were very organized and provided us with a booklet outlining directions and general attractions in the city, as well as thoughtful recommendations for places to eat and go out in Rio.

    The apartment is very beautifully decorated, especially the terrace and living room area, which are great spaces to relax or do some reading. The place is a very close (~5min) walk to Copacabana beach and has plenty of bakeries and lunch spots nearby. It is also close to several bus stops and to the subway station. The room is spacious, quiet and relaxing, the perfect space to wind down at the end of your day.

    I would highly recommend staying with Alexandra and would be more than happy to book this place for my next stay in Rio.

  • je serais volontiers restée plus longtemps dans cet appartement plein de charme et de raffinement; la chambre était très confortable et meublée avec goût, la salle de bain spacieuse et claire; mais au delà de tout cela il y avait les inoubliables petits-déjeuners sur la terrasse, un endroit exceptionnel pourvu de canapés agréables et de plantes énormes; un lieu propice à faire oublier l'animation des rues de Copacabana et pourtant à 3 minutes de la plage...
    Ajouter à cela l'accueil détendu et le service impeccable
    je recommande chaleureusement ce logement qui est de loin celui que j'ai préféré à Rio

  • I usually don't post lengthy reviews but our stay was so positive in this home that I wanted to post more than a nominal review. A friend and I stayed at Alexandra and Yves' home for four days. They have a beautiful home. It is evident that they have put a lot of time and care into their home, and it shines through the details. As they have both travelled extensively, they understand what makes a stay comfortable. The room is comfortable and spacious. Little touches make it welcoming.

    Their place is in a very central location in Copacabana and has good access to transportation. However, it is truly a serene and calm apartment close to a bustling area. The outdoor area is gorgeous; breakfast was always a pleasure to eat outside. We also had the chance to visit with Alexandra and Yves on several occasions while we were there and found them to be genuine, kind and interesting people with whom we struck a friendship.

    My original booking at another property had fallen through at the last minute, and Alexandra responded quickly to my email as I needed a place within 48 hours. To be honest, it almost sounded to good to be true. Not only was Alexandra incredibly responsive and timely, but she was a generous and caring host. Should I return to Rio, I would love to stay here again.

    Thanks to both of you for a lovely stay. Hope that our paths cross again.

  • We stayed in Alexandras apartment for 5 days and really enjoyed it. We had our own room and bathroom, which were really nice, big and clean. Alexandra and also her husband were willing to give us some good advice about the city and even organised a trip to the favelas for us, where their housemaid showed us around. All in all, we felt very comfortable and we are thankful for the gorgeous time we had. They are really nice, friendly and uncomplicated people that we can really recommend to everybody who wants to spend an unforgettable time in Rio. Ah by the way ... their dog Tobi is a bomb. Laught so much :)

  • My stay with Alexandra and Yves was terrific. They were very gracious hosts. A lovely pair who made us feel right at home. The location was terrific -- just a short walk to the beach and metro. The apartment was tastefully decorated and very well kept. The outdoor patio was a gem! The bedroom accommodations and private adjoining bathroom were modest but very nice. Breakfast on the terrace each morning and the company of Alexandra and Yves were highlights of an outstanding stay Rio. I won't hesitate to rent from them again. Stay here and you will not be disappointed!
