The Space


*****Update ***** August 2012 ********************************
We have installed a black out roller curtain so the place can get quite dark, if you wish!

We have just renovated this apartment in the heart of Copacabana, one block from the beach, you cannot beat the location!

The apartment does not face the street so it is very quiet and has plenty of natural light.

Located in a 1950's full of character building, this charming apartment has got a comfortable queen bed ( 2 beds put together, so single people can each have their own), a sofa futton bed that sleeps one in the living room. All linen are 100% cotton, quality goods. Same goes for towels.

The kitchen is complete, with pots and pans, a microwave, utensils, cooking tools and the lot.

A conveninece store is located right in front of the flat, there is an italian cantina right next to it and also a delicious pastry shop in front of the flat. Farmacies, shops, supermarket, banks and taxi stops and pretty much all you need at your doorstep.

The apartment has one medium bathroom and a small one too so it's great if more people are staying.

The building has a doorman 24 hours a day, it is a family, quiet building not suitable for parties. If you are looking for a place with a good cozy vibe, clean, full of air and big windows where you can chill out and recharge your batteries after a long day outdoors, then this is it for you.

It has a 21 flat screen TV, a mini stereo, plenty of storage space, a wardrobe, and a good shower with plenty of hot water.

I rent other apartments in Rio as well, so please read through my reviews. I am reliable, Brazilian born but have lived many years overseas, I speak English, French Spanish and Portuguese and will help you in Rio with tips and whatever you need to make your stay more enjoyable.

Guest Access

The entire apartment, internet wi-fi, cable TV, cooking utensils, microwave, fridge, the whole apartment!

Interaction with Guests

We like to meet and greet you when you arrive but we pretty much like to leave our guests independent but we're always in town and reachable via email or phone.

The Neighborhood

I love the fact that this apartment is just half a block from Copacabana beach, it's in a quiet street, facing the back of the building and the best this is being so close to so many bars and restaurants in Copa. Bolivar Street is just 2 blocks away and I love the bars and the tapas served there. We give a list of places you should go, and this part of Copa is definitely a little gem for locals.

Getting around

There is a taxi stop right next doors, and the subway station is only 3 blocks away. Lots if buses going towards Ipanema or downtown. Bikes can be rented and it's easy to walk along the beach as you're only 2 mms away from Ipanema!

Other Things to Note

We have lived abroad and we're fluent in English, we're friendly people, well travelled and we love to host. We have other properties and have been doing this for the past 5 years. Our places are always very clean and we're always available to our guests if they have any questions. Because we have traveled we sort of know what people like as travellers.

  • Estimados, Desde nuestro primer contacto con Viviane en el que nos sugirio costos de traslado hasta nuestra despedida final con Edoardo -sumamente puntual y atento en todo momento, hasta nos procuro el taxi para nuestro traslado final, sus sugerencias son excelentes y para tener en cuenta-, todo marcho sobre ruedas. El dpto. resulto tal cual se muestra en las fotos, impecable en todo sentido, todo funciona, no merece ninguna observacion, agradecemos ademas la delicada atencion de ciertos presentes a nuestra llegada (salados, bombones,etc) no incluidos. Muy agradecidos, volveriamos con todo gusto. Un abrazo para ambos. Eduardo.

  • Great location, nice space. We had a couple of problems but Viviane made everything all right in the end. Felt safe the whole trip, market right across the street (super convenient, but not open all of the time). Left (email hidden) to the city, and even helped us get a Taxi when we checked out.

    Would stay at Viviane's again!

  • The apartment was a 2 minute walk to copacabana beach. The host and her brother were extremely helpful and informative when greeting us and continued to help us for the remainder of our stay. We really enjoyed styling in the apartment and it had everything we needed!
