The Space

Located within two-minutes from a subway station and right in the middle of Copacabana, this spacious and comfortable two-bedroom duplex is the perfect place for up to 4 people in Rio.

The apartment was recently renovated and has an open kitchen (fully equipped), spacious living room, two big bedrooms and a bathroom.

Rua Figueiredo Magalhães is right in the middle of Copacabana, with a subway station (Siqueira Campos) two blocks from our building. The street begins at the beach (5 blocks from us) and ends in a tunnel towards Botafogo, which makes it very central for getting around, as well as quite busy. But worry not - as the apartment faces a narrower sidestreet and has thick windows, noise won't be an issue.

There's three big supermarkets on Figueiredo and Siqueira Campos, so it will be easy to shop for anything you need if you want to use our fully equipped kitchen. There are very good bars and restaurants, as well as a nightclub really close. I'll be happy to mail you a list of the facilities and venues I know in the area.

From Copacabana is easy to get buses to all major attractions in Rio, like Sugar Loaf and Christ Redeemer. It's a 10 minute walk to Copacabana beach and from there it's easy to go walking to Ipanema and Leblon beaches. You can also use the city's bike renting service to get one (we can explain this before) at the station near our place. I can provide you with a full list of public transport in the area.

Please be aware that:
* This is my apartment - I will be subletting it during our vacations and on occasion.
* When renting rooms - I will be in the other room during your stay.
* I have two cats, but when I rent the whole place they stay at a "hotel".
* Therefore, I need you to book at least a week before your actual arrival - I get a lot of last minute requests that I unfortunately have to decline.

Guest Access

This will be your home as long as you're staying: complete with TV (with cable), air conditioning, high-speed internet with wi-fi, a computer if you didn't bring yours, a fully-equipped kitchen. All in a nice, clean building with 24-hour doormen and in a very secure area of one of the greatest neighborhoods of one of the most beautiful cities in the world.

Copacabana is your oyster, enjoy it!

(Oh, let me know if you like oysters, I know a great place nearby!)

Interaction with Guests

I'm usually available for a welcome coffee or drink at the apartment, to make sure everything is alright and pass any instructions needed and point a lot of my personal favorite places nearby and in Rio.

I can also help you plan your trip - I love showing Rio around/off and can help you find the kind of places and activities that will make your trip unforgettable. Let me know how can I help!

The Neighborhood

Copacabana is amazing.

It is one of the most vibrant neighborhoods in Rio, mixing people fro different backgrounds, ages and walks of life. It has a thriving restaurant and bar scene, great shopping and a beach that has been sung everywhere in the world. It's a main hub of transportation too, so it's easy to get around the city.

Explore it by foot to find hidden gems. You can also ask me for my personal favorites, and I'll be happy to point you to places that you're gonna love.

Like staying up late? Then Copacabana is the best fit for you. Bars and eateries that stay open all night are easy to find and great value.

Getting around

Copacabana is one of Rio's main transportation hubs. You can use the subway (there's an exit 5 minutes from the front door), you can get a bus to anywhere. Taxis? Easily available on the street at any time - yep, even really late (or early).

  • The modern two floor, two bedroom apartment was great. The back bedroom was off an inner court, isolated from the street activity. Felipe provided information helpful to getting around and good places to eat while in the Copacabana area and Rio in general. The apartment is about 4-5blocks from the beach, an easy walk. Felipe has internet service and a lcd television both of which I did not use but available. The clean well appointed apartment made it feel as though I was living in Rio. I would stay here again.

  • We stayed at Felipe's apartment over NYE and it was great. The location was very convenient for seeing the fireworks/show on Copacabana beach (less than a 10 min walk) . We had stayed in Arpoador earlier in the trip so it was nice to discover the Copacabana side. Felipe's recommendations were spot-on and very helpful. I would definitely stay here again!

About
I'm a big fan of trying to be a local when I travel. When I started traveling I would stay at friends' couches (and use the website where people can surf other peoples couches too - apparently Airbnb redacts it if you say the name) , and also hosted a few people in Rio. All experiences were fun and very worthwhile, but now I feel I can give more back than just my joyful presence. ;) I live with my girlfriend in a 2-bedroom duplex in Copacabana which we sublet when out in vacations. We love to travel and hopefully we can do it more often by using Airbnb.
