We stayed here for four nights at the end of a month's trip around S.America. The apartment is in a great location close to the beach and shops and was kept in a very clean condition. The room was extremely comfortable and the en suite was great. Although there isn't access to the kitchen, we enjoyed lovely breakfasts on the patio each morning consisting of tea, coffee, local pastries and fresh fruit. Alexandra was a fantastic host greeting us when we arrived, helping book a trip up to Christ the Redeemer and recommending good restaurants and a fantastic samba club in town. We thoroughly enjoyed our short stay here, Rio is such a colourful and exciting city and being in the heart of Copacabana we were in a perfect place to explore. We'd highly recommend this apartment.
This was our first experience using Airbnb and it could not have been better. The bedroom, house, amenities and hosts where all as described in the site and the reviews of many travellers are a good representation of what we found.
Alexandra and Yves are fantastic hosts, making you feel at home well before you arrive, and sharing their house and their life experiences with generosity and an openness that really stimulates you. To the point that you don't want to leave or think about travelling more!
For us it was exactly what we where looking for: great location close to the beach, all transports, bars, restaurantes, shopping; great room and house to rest when needed, beautiful terrace to chill out and have a great breakfast plus the opportunity to meet and enjoy the conversation of a kind and interesting couple like Alexandra and Yves. With the help and directions to enjoy your trip that you are not going to get from a Concierge in a classic hotel...
Thank you so much for the wonderful stay in your house. We definitely recommend this Oasis to stay in Rio de Janeiro. And we are looking forward to meet you again somewhere around the world!
Chez Alexandra et Yves, on se sent tout de suite les bienvenus, un accueil chaleureux, le feeling passe tout de suite, on se sent comme chez soit avec en prime une situation sur Rio au top proche de tous commerces et bus/metro. L'appartement est très bien tenu, les hôtels peuvent rougir et le petit déjeuner brésilien typique nous fait lui aussi un peu voyager. Bref je ne peux que recommander, Alex et Yves je vous souhaite tout le meilleur !
My wife and I had a wonderful experience staying with Alexandra and François for our time in Rio. Their apartment is lovely and conveniently located in the center of Copacabana beach, a quick walk to Ipanema beach, as well as a majority of the major tourist destinations and hotspots in Rio. The neighborhood is extremely safe and quiet and we felt very comfortable walking around at night. As an added bonus, they are both very nice, thoughtful people who make for great conversation. We would highly recommended making this staying here while traveling in Rio.
Nous avons passé un superbe séjour chez Alexandra et Yves. L'appartement est très agréable, accueillant et bien décoré, avec une jolie terrasse où nous prenions nos petits déjeuners. Il est très bien situé, tout près de la plage et des magasins, dans une rue tranquille. Merci à Alexandra et Yves pour leurs bons conseils pour les visites, les restaurants... Si nous retournons à Rio nous serions heureux d'y séjourner à nouveau.

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!
