View from front of building which is on the beach NOT from room which is in the back of the building
I am renting this cozy room in a building on the beach front in Copacabana!
The room has been recently remodeled with a hotel room in mind. It is super clean and new with a private entrance and bath, powerful air-con, mini-fridge, coffee maker , bluetooth speaker and new shower. The room has a folding double bed and wireless broadband internet (30 mb "N" WiFi).
The room is small, about 65 square feet, while the bathroom is 25 square feet but it has been specially furnished to maximize the space. It is great for singles and suitable for couples.
The room has a lock to which only you have the key so your belongings are secure.
This room is superbly located on the safe end of Copacabana beach known as Posto 6. The room is in the back of the building so no sea views but it is quiet which is priceless here in bustling Rio de Janeiro.
You will be steps away from both Ipanema and Copacabana beaches and the surfing hot spot of Arpoador.
It is a fantastic location to explore all of Rio de Janeiro. Ipanema is a short 5 minute walk away and bus stops to all destinations in Rio are right across the street.
Economical airport buses drop you off literally at the front of the building for R$12 vs. R$60 for a metered taxi. The subway station is 10 mins away by foot.
Supermarkets and great restaurants are just steps away. There is a fantastic 24/7 restaurant on the same block with wonderful restaurant choices up and down the beach road, Avenida Atlantica. The beach kiosks across the street are open all night for those spontaneous midnight coconut water or caipirinha runs.
Rio has a reputation as a violent and dangerous destination but this is rapidly changing. This room is in one of the safest places in Rio. There is a 24/7 doorman on call in the building to let you in and out and attend to any and all requests. A prominent building resident has additional private security posted in the lobby in the evenings. I am available on a moment's notice to help you with any questions you might have.
A laptop computer is provided if you don't have your own to map your way across Rio de Janeiro. An unlocked cell phone is available for those who want to buy a SIM card for easy local calling. Lots of beach gear can be used with prior notice like fins, body board, mask and snorkel and stand up surfboard.
Enjoy the beach lifestyle with biking, stand-up surfing and the world famous beach all right across the street.
Don't get stuck in gritty urban Lapa or on top of a hill with no late night transport options in Santa Theresa. Come on out and stay on the beach where all the locals go!
Ironing board and hair dryer are available. Laundry available for extra fee. Laptop computer available. Lots of beach gear can be used like fins, body board, snorkle and stand up surfboard with some notice.
Interaction with Guests
I make it a point to personally greet all guests and show them around. After that my guests enjoy lots of privacy. I live in the connected apartment and am usually available immediately for any circumstance that might arise.
Posto 6 in Copacabana is the best neighborhood in Rio de Janeiro IMHO. It gives you easy access to upscale Ipanema as well as the more affordable side of life in middle class Copacabana. Guests should experience nearby attractions such as sunsets from the rock at Arpoador and visits to the two military forts on either side of Copacabana beach for great views.
Bus lines are all around the apartment. The metro is a 10 minute walk from the apartment. Street parking is typically easy on the beach road. The best access from the airport is by metered yellow taxi or by airport bus to Copacabana.
No smoking, pets, drugs, guests or parties. This is a residential building so quiet time after 10 p.m. You must use the beach entrance in the back of the building after returning from the beach. Please shower all the sand off before entering the room. Electricity is extremely expensive so please turn off the air con when you leave. Please do not take towels to the beach. The local sarongs are cheap and make wonderful beach accessories.
Room door leads directly outside so guests have complete privacy coming and going, making the room almost like an independent mini-apartment
I was impressed that David was waiting for me at the lobby when I stepped out of the taxi. He showed me the room and the neighborhood, and suggested places that I should be visiting. David was a fun guy to talk to, and he's very nice.
The description of the room and neighborhood was accurate. It's a small and clean room. Bathroom looks new and has all the essentials, and wifi was fast. The location was convenient to both beaches and restaurants.
This was my first Airbnb experience and it was great that I picked this one.
David and his place were great! The room is a fold down bed with a new bathroom, both very clean and nice. David showed me around the area, walked with me and pointed out things I should do in my limited time there.
The room is as pictured. It is in a great location very close to the beach. It has been recently rennovated and was clean and tidy. It is a small room with a Murphy Bed but that was fine for us as we were keen to use most of our time to explore Rio rather than be inside in a room. Private bathroom and entrance was a bonus too. David was a great host and made the whole process smooth.
David meet me at the front entrance of the building, walked to the apt and he had a list of information password for the wifi etc. The room was just very small I little bigger than the size of the bed, but clean and a good aircinditioner, and a small bathroom, and little fridge. No room to prepare food, or desk for laptop . Has to do work basically using the bed
David was a great host, taking the time to show me the local neighbourhood. The location of the apartment is perfect with lots of great restaurants around and a really short walk to all the great beaches. The room is really convenient with its own entrance, bathroom and aircon. Would definitely recommend.
David was a great host. Although the room is small it has a private bathroom which, together with the great aircon, made the room work for us. Private entrance and 24h security at the front door made it a very safe place. The building is perfectly situated at Copacabana beach (2 minutes) with 5 minutes to the Army Museum and 10 min to Ipanema beach.
David does not include breakfast but there is a great place for that literally across the street. We can recommend a stay with David and his very nice English speaking family in this great city.
David's apartment was perfect for our 2 week stay in Rio. It is right on Copacabana! You can't really ask for more. David was a really helpful host, full of great information about where to eat and go out and as a result we had a great time.
If we returned to rio we would definitely stay there again. Thanks again David.

About the Host, David
Hi! I am a native San Franciscan relocated to Rio de Janeiro. I like outdoor activities and I love to show people the best Rio has to offer. Beach vollyball, hiking to the Christ statute and to hidden waterfalls, night swimming in Arpoador, biking around Lagoa, stand-up surfing right out the front door. Combined with the fantastic nightlife, this makes Rio a truly wonderful city. I am offering this room at a budget price to help you save money for what really counts when travelling - memorable experiences!
