This place is a little gem, tucked away in a silent building with views to Corcovado and Sugar Loaf, constant breeze from the Bay, awesome building surrounded by green! Close to the subway station, to the Mall, pool, sauna and playground for kids!

The Space

Ideally located, just outside Copacabana (5 min by taxi) , in Botafogo a residential nice area of Rio (right next to Copa), this flat is ideal for those wanting to live like a carioca, in a family quiet building, with partial views to the Guanabara Bay ( and Sugar Loaf!) , constant breeze, small balcony, full view of Corcovado statue from balcony!

I live in the flat and I work from home. If you are an independent traveler then this place is for you. I offer you your own bedroom, my insight into the city, and possibly some socialising, depending on my work schedule.

Tastefully decorated, the perfect spot to relax after a long day spent outdoors. Close to a shopping centre with restaurants, cinema, shops, theatre, close to the subway (Botafogo Station) and supermarket, pharmacy. You pretty much will have everything you need at your doorstep.

Guest Access

Internet Wi-Fi, cable TV, pots and pans and kitchen utensils, microwave, stove, new fridge, washing machine.

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.

The Neighborhood

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.

Getting around

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.

  • 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.
