The Space

Cozy and spacious apartment in Rio de Janeiro, with 2 bedrooms, 2 living rooms, complete kitchen, 2 bathrooms. In a family, residential building, in a very safe region. The bedrooms are airy and with air conditioning. Wi Fi connection with 15 MB speed.

The neighborhood is green, residential, upper middle-class. The apartment is located between Flamengo and Laranjeiras neighborhoods, a cool and peacefull area with facilities, like supermarkets, bars, pharmacies and restaurants 24 hours per day.
This neighborhood has a clear inclination for tourism, due to its antiquity, tradition, and historical charm.

The apartment location offers fast and direct access to the business districts of the city, such as the financial center, Avenida Rio Branco, Botafogo Beach, Rio Convention Center, Gloria Marina and Santos Dumont Airport. It is also conveniently close to tourism attractions such as Christ the Redeemer Statue, Sugarloaf Mountain, Copacabana and Ipanema Beaches. Walk to the Guanabara Bay and Flamengo Park. Very close to the metrô (underground).

It is two underground stations away from Copacabana and five from Ipanema. Only five minutes from the Santos Dumont airport. It is ten minutes from Lapa, where the most concentrated night life in Rio is. Plenty of options of restaurants and commerce around (walking distance).

  • We rented the apartment from Paulo for one month for a visit to family in Rio. Paulo is easy to rent from & the apartment exceeded our expectations. He met us at the apartment and showed us around. It is very comfortable and the location is perfect, out of the touristy and crowded areas.. Good places to eat and shop. It is very well equipped and we ate in often,

    Close to two metro stops and easy to get a cab right on the street in front of the building.

    The neighborhood is very safe and there is a lovely beach 3 blocks away. Great for taking long walks. The building is older, lovely and very well kept. The people who work there are very friendly & helpful.

    We will surely stay there again

  • We had a wonderful stay at Paulo's apartment! First of all Paulo is very friendly & helpful, & willing to answer any questions you may have prior to arrival. He responds in a very timely manner which was appreciated.
    His apartment is great... very clean & spacious & has all the amenities required for a comfortable stay in Rio. It is in a very good location, in a quiet & safe area not too far from the main attractions. (10 minutes by taxi to Lapa & 15 minutes to Copacabana, so it is very convenient. The security men at reception are also very efficient. The apartment looks exactly like the pictures but even bigger. Thank you Paulo, we were very impressed & had a great time at your apartment :)

  • Paulo is an incredibly flexible, and generous host. My travel plans ended up changing mid-way and he was kind and patient enough to let me decide how long I needed the apartment without any pressure.

    The apartment is in a great safe, central location where you can get to anywhere else in the city by metro, bus, cab, or otherwise. We had an amazing time gallivanting around Rio, eating in nearby stellar eateries, and enjoying some samba in a nearby plaza on the weekend.

    Thank you, couldn't have asked for more!

  • Paulo is a friendly, straightforward, helpful, laid-back guy. We enjoyed our stay at his apartment, which was clean, comfortable, and very nicely located on a beautiful street in the Flamengo neighborhood. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Paulo's accommodations to other travellers.
