CHEAPEST WAY TO GO TO COPACABANA: Bus 2018 "Frescao" (blue) at Terminal 1 Galeao international airport: ask to leave at the corner of Constante Ramos st. It´s "Posto 4" at the beach.

Rio was inscribed on the Unesco's World Heritage List in the 1st July 2012: "including the extensive designed landscapes along Copacabana Bay which have contributed to the outdoor living culture of this spectacular city. Rio de Janeiro is also recognized for the artistic inspiration it has provided to musicians, landscapers and urbanists."
- Outstanding location, beautiful in the heart of Copacabana
Sure this will be your best time in Rio! Cheers, Carla

Guests must respect the two-person limit occupancy of the studio, but there is a sofa-bed where a kid can sleep. No parties in the studio. Remember that between 10PM and 6AM it must be quiet. Please be nice with my neighbors so they can be nice to you also. The speed limit of the internet access is 1Mbps max. The decor, furniture and utensils should remain in the same order and condition at check out time. Please remove all the garbage and food before leaving - there is a rubbish bin at the stairs in front of the elevators. Never throw tampons or sanitary pads in the toilet, there is a basket to do it. There are chairs and umbrellas to rent by the beach. Please always turn off the air conditioning and lock the door everytime you go there!!!
Taxis from both airports are not expensive. There are few companies inside the airport (booths) that sell the run to Copacabana.
My studio was recently renewed so our electrical outlets are different now - 3-pin- 110V - look for Type N Brazil.
In Brazil it is possible to buy pre-paid 90-days SIM cards for your mobile. At the main street Nossa Senhora de Copacabana there are brands for you to choose and compare prices before buying one: Claro, TIM and Oi.
Táxis de ambos os aeroportos (Galeão e Santos Dumont) não são muito caros. Existem empresas que vendem a corrida a preço fechado dentro do aeroporto, você não precisa ficar na fila do desembarque.
O ap teve a parte elétrica toda reformada, as tomadas são de 3 pinos a 110V. Busque- padrão N Brazil.
Se vocês quiserem comprar cartão pré-pago de telefone, existem lojas aqui na Av Nossa Sra de Copacabana (Claro, Oi e Tim).
Os hóspedes devem respeitar a ocupação limite de duas pessoas no estúdio, mas tem um sofá-cama onde uma criança pode dormir. Sem festas no estúdio, por favor! Lembre-se que entre 22 da noite e 06 da manhã existe a lei do silêncio, respeite meus vizinhos, eles fazem a estada ser mais prazerosa. O limite máximo de velocidade de acesso à internet é 1Mbps. A decoração, móveis e utensílios devem permanecer na mesma ordem e condição na sua saída. Por favor, remova todo o lixo e comida antes de sair... há uma lixeira no corredor, na escada em frente aos elevadores. Nunca nunca jogue absorventes ou tampões dentro do vaso sanitário, nem outros objetos, pois o prejuízo será seu... Há cadeiras e guarda-sóis para alugar na praia. E por favor sempre desligar o ar-condicionado e trancar a porta toda vez que você for lá!!!
O Studio é realmente muito bom, fica muito perto da praia. Ademais, Carla se demonstrou muito atenciosa, quero dizer, se chegamos bem ou mesmo se precisavamos de alguma coisa. Ademais, o studio estava em perfeitas condicoes, muito bem arrumado e bem equipado. Adoramos nossa estadia no Rio, e parte disso foi o conforto que tivermos nesse estudio. Muito Obrigado Carla.
Localização excelente próximo a supermercados, restaurantes, lojas, ponto de ônibus, metrô e é claro a praia de Copacabana. O apartamento é lindo, muito limpo e muito bem decorado, com as instalações em ótimas condições, wifi funciona bem, tv a cabo, chuveiro gostoso, cozinha com tudo que você vai precisar, além das roupas da banho e de cama que estavam impecáveis. Os porteiros são simpáticos e prestativos. A anfitriã foi sempre muito gentil e (website hidden) super recomendo!
Really great experience. The apartment location was perfect. Carla was great and really good at staying in touch and making sure all was okay. I landed really late at night, but as promised, her keys were there waiting for me.
Carl's place was perfect. My fiance and myself stayed for four nights. The directions were perfect for the cab driver, the doorman was expecting us and the apartment was clean, homey and a it conditioned. So much better than a motel room. Carla answered emails very promptly and provided great advice.
El departamento es tal como se ve en las fotos, muy lindo y acogedor a solo tres cuadras de la playa, la zona es de facil acceso muy turistica, muchos lugares para comprar y comer al rededor. El departamento esta equipado con todo lo necesario para una estadia comoda, con un aire acondicionado que vas a amar!!! Carla es muy amable, siempre atenta a resolver todas las dudas, fue muy flexible con mis horarios de check in y check out ya que me cambiaron los horarios del vuelo en varias ocasiones.
Definitivamente volveria a hospedarme con carla, una gran anfitriona!!
The department is as shown in the pictures, very cute and cozy just three blocks from the beach, the area is very touristy easy access, plenty of places to shop and eat around. The apartment is equipped with everything needed for a comfortable stay, with an air conditioner that going to love !!! Carla is very friendly, always attentive to solve all questions, was very flexible with my schedule of check in and check out since I changed the flight schedule several times.
Definitely would return to staying with carla, a great hostess !!
Studio confortável e em ótima localização. A poucos passos da praia e de paradas de ônibus. A Carla foi sempre muito atenciosa conosco. Conceição e Ericksson
I work as a HR Professional and Coach. Love dancing and yoga classes. My favorite trips were to Sicily in 2013 and to Cape Town in 2011 but Rio is the most beautiful city I`ve ever seen!!! I prefer homemade food. When my husband and I go out for dinner we usually choose italian or veggie restaurants. However he likes brazilian barbecue "churrasco" a lot!!!!! He is an IT researcher. We love to meet new people from different countries as we both lived abroad in London. Our last visitors were from Australia, Frankfurt, USA, Argentina, Chile and Brasil.
Our family has other studios in Copacabana and Buzios, if you need extra places.
