Interaction with Guests
We like our guests to be independent so we welcome everyone in person and we're available if our guests need info from us.
I love the fact that Botafogo is a lovely neighbourhood, close to everything, with a nice artistic vibe, and yet it is right next to Copacabana, so you're not in the middle of the madness yet just a bike ride away. The view of Botafogo Bay is stunning, the best postcard of Rio, for sure.
Close to the subway station, close to the police station, really near a very cool supermarket with the best over baked pizzas in town, close to many buses running to all places in city (15 min to the business district "downtown") 10 min by bus from Copa or 1 subway stop away... Many taxis on the street.
Other Things to Note
The apartment is in a residential quiet building, so we look for peaceful guests to suit the vibe of the condo.
Strictly non smoking place. I mean strictly!
No parties, no loud music after 10pm. Family building, please keep quiet :c)

Viviane es una excelente anfitriona, y su departamento es tal cual aparece en las fotografías. Es realmente bonito y cómodo. Todo está resuelto, y estuvimos muy a gusto. Está muy bien ubicado, y es muy recomendable para pasar unos días en Río.
We had a terrific stay at Viviane's apartment in Botafogo. Everything was exactly as expected and shown on the pictures. The size and layout is ideal for 3-4 guests. I stayed with two friends over new years eve and it was very easy to get to Copacabana and Ipanema by metro, bus or taxi. Viviane and her brother provided helpful recommendations during our time in Rio and arranged transportation to get back to the airport on the departure day. I would absolutely stay here again.
This is a great apartment, clean and welcoming, comfy beds and good shower. The layout is well thought out to make the most of the space, I stayed there with 2 other friends, plenty of room for the 3 of us.
Location is exactly as described, easy short walk to the metro, felt very safe; supermarket and a couple of small bars are just round the corner.
Excellent and easy communication with Viviane beforehand and great advice and help once we were there. I would definitely recommend this and would stay here again if the occasion arose.
