The Space

Stay in a private oceanfront apartment located in a famous Rio landmark! Set in Upper Leblon, "The Zeppelin" mansion was for decades one of the most renowned hotspots in Rio for live music and mingling with Brazilian celebrities. Today it has been converted into a gorgeous tropical 'albergue' but it still retains the mystique and charm of its wild glory days. The lush tropical gardens which surround the Zeppelin are the home to many species of birds, butterflies, and tiny monkeys. And the huge upstairs terrace provides one of the best ocean views in the city! This private apartment has a full ocean view from your own window, a private bathroom, and full kitchen. It is just minutes away from all the best restaurants and nightlife of Ipanema, Copacabana, and Leblon. Buses, vans, and taxis across the street take you everywhere in the city easily.
Amenities include:
-private outdoor entrance
-private bathroom with hot shower
-internet
-private kitchen area
-free gated parking
-free access to Sheraton beach across the street
-bike and jogging path nearby
-a short walk to Post 12 Beach, home to great surfing, a free outdoor exercise area, and Rio's most beautiful people!
-a safe, secure environment

I have other apartments available as well. I can accommodate groups. New year's and Carnaval packages available. Get ready ready to have fun!

  • Tuve una muy buena experience en los deptos de Jake. El sitio tiene una excelente vista y esta cerca de Leblon e Ipanema. El edificio es viejo y necesita reciclarse pronto, no es aconsejable para la gente que le gustan quedarse en lugares nuevos, esto es bien rustico. Al comienzo senti rechazo pero luego me terminó gustando.
    La cocina es muy basica, tuve que pedirle a Jake cosas basicas como sarten, tazas y ollas. El respondió inmediatamente y llevo casi todo lo que pedimos. La experiencia compartida aqui es como la de un Hostel, solo que la habitacion es para ti solo.
    Dejas el auto justo abajo, gratis y a la vista (siempre que consigas lugar).
    ALGO A TENER EN CUENTA: Tiene 52 escalones para llegar a la puerta del depto, asi que gente discapacitada o anciana no es recomendable. Para mi fue un gran ejercicio para las piernas! ;)
    Tienes un gatito tuxedo que te recibe todas las tardes al llegar (vive en el edificio, no en el depto).
    El Wi-Fi funciona muy bien, pude subir fotos y videos mientras estaba ahi y generarle envidia a mis amigos!
    Tiene television satelital Sky (DirecTV) con varios HBO y Cinemax. El TV podria renovarse ya que es un CRT de 20", pero nos las arreglamos igual.
    La cama matrimonial es comoda y tiene vista a Ipanema, estando acostado es lo ultimo que ves antes de dormirte.
    La otra cama es un poco dura pero igual se puede dormir en ella.
    La puerta de entrada esta un poco venida abajo, no se muy fuerte y tiene señales de haber sido forzada, tuvimos un poco de miedo de dejar las cosas al comienzo, pero por suerte no tuvimos ningun inconveniente. Un dia llegamos y estaba la señora de limpieza arreglando el depto.
    El baño funciona muy bien y la ducha tambien!
    Tienes el Sheraton justo enfrente y la playa para irte caminando, pero te esperan 200 escalones hasta la playa!
    El transporte publico pasa muy seguido por la puerta del Sheraton y de ahi puedes irte a donde quieras.
    En general tuvimos una muy buena estadia en Jake's. El fue muy atento a nuestras necesidades, es probable que nos quedemos ahi nuevamente, solo espero que la cocina este en mejores condiciones para la proxima... (un microondas, tostadora, pava y mejores utensilios de cocina son bienvenidos!).

  • Awesome place.. worked like a charm, very safe..clean couldn't have asked for anything better.

  • Jake is totally awesome, super laid back, extremely genuine and gives off a great vibe.

    The apartment is compact but has every necessity needed for a comfortable stay. The view is impeccable and everything is just a 10minute walk away, ie beach, shopping, fresh young coconuts. The energy there is ultra healing as you can hear/see/smell the ocean from your bed!

    Highest possible recommendation for both he and the location, and I, personally, will be back in the very near future.

  • Mix feelings. The location is superb. The owner is really friendly and extremely helpful. The actual apartment is definitely spartan (thinks like the lack of a simple table lamp are really puzzling), but after all it is not a hotel and it's quite affordable, by Rio (mad) standards.
