The Space

Excellent location! This flat (penthouse) is located in the neighbourhood of Botafogo, within the southern area of Rio the Janeiro just in front of Guanabara’s Bay. It is also very convenient for public transport: i) 5 minutes walking distance to the nearest underground station (Flamengo), ii) 1 minute walking distance to the bus stop connecting to the all different directions, and iii) 1 minute walking distance to one of the stands of Rio’s bikes system.

Easy access to local Banks and various cash points accepting international cards. There are excellent restaurants (Italian, Japanese and Mexican) as well as popular bars in the same road.

We have a proper Queen Size bed (japanese style) in the main bedroom and an additional double mattress that can be used in the studio or living room if required.

The flat has been painted and refurnished this year, including a plasma TV, DVD, music system for ipod/iphone, 2 fans and Wifi. Controlled access and 24 hours security.

Important to highlight, it has an astonishing view of the Sugar Leaf and Guanabara’s Bay.

Due to our occupations we are travelling constantly, that why we have decided to rent it via airbnb.

Feel free to contact us in case you have further questions or comments. It will be a pleasure to host you while visiting Rio, we are confident that you will feel at home!

Thanks a lot!

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Great hosts! Easy to communicate with. This is a cool apartment in a great neighborhood. There are a number of bars and restaurants and the walk to the Flamengo metro station is only about 5 minutes. The bars in this area tend to close around midnight so you'll need to go elsewhere for late night fun but the central location makes it easy. My only complaint is that the apartment does not have A/C so more window fans are needed as it got pretty hot at times. Overall good experience.

  • O Luca nos propiciou um final de semana maravilhoso no Rio de Janeiro. O apartamento corresponde totalmente ao anúncio e é muito aconchegante e com excelente localização. Recomendo totalmente.

  • Luca was a great host. The apt is very central and easily connected with buses and metro. I would recommend to stay there again.
    Only prob is that the apt can get very hot and ventilators are sometime not enough..

  • Great apartment, would definitely stay here again. The host LuCa is very friendly and helpful. Apartment is in a good location close to Flamengo metro station and Botafogo bay. There is a 24 hour garage nearby for essentials and close to a supermarket and a couple of banks as well as being within walking distance of Flamengo and Botafogo. No air conditioning but fans are absolutely fine (and it reached temperatures of 38 when I was here!)

    Lift up to the apartment which is on the top floor and always a friendly doorman!

  • Our experience in staying was great. The apartment is very well located (away from the touristy Copacabana madness ) in a very nice and safe carioca neighbourhood and almost cross the road from Botafogo beach with amazing views on the Pao de Asucar.
    There are all the needed facilities at your door step, including a super market which opens until very late (a 24h shop) and fantastic restaurants and local bars.
    The apartment is very nice, spacious, tastefully decorated and impecable in term of cleanliness. Luca is very friendly and accomodating. I would recommand the place with no hesitation.

  • O LuCa não estava no Rio no dia da nossa chegada, mas deixou uma amiga (a Luiza) encarregada de nos receber. Ela foi muito prestativa, amável e (email hidden) a experiência turística (deu ótimas dicas!). A localização do apartamento é ótima, pois está a meio quarteirão da praia de Botafogo. As adjacências são convenientes para o turista, já que há variados restaurantes, padarias, posto de combustível, supermercado, etc.

  • The apartment was in a good location and the space was very accommodating for 3-4 people. LuCa was a very good and attentive host and the apartment had most of everything we needed. Unfortunately, there was no A/C, which became uncomfortable with the heat at times. Overall, I recommend LuCa's place and would stay there again, especially during cooler temperatures.

    January 2014
  • The apartment was amazing, had everything we need to feel like home! The neighborhood is pretty good, you have shopping malls, restaurants, bars, supermarket on a walk distance!

    Our host, LuCa, was very helpful and friendly as well...everything went smooth despite the cloudy days in Rio! Definitely coming back!

Discovering Latin America
Ola! Hello! Hola! Sou o LuCa, moro no Rio, essa cidade que escolhi pra viver e que adoro. Sou ator e fotógrafo, muito ligado a música, cinema e teatro. Uma das minha paixões é viajar. Já conheci desde a escandinávia até Índia. Meu tipo de viagem é aquele em que vou conhecer pessoas, nas ruas, nos centros, tentar viver um pouquinho da realidade dos habitantes de cada lugar. Estar com pessoas locais é o melhor presente que se pode ter para conhecer novos lugares. Moro no apartamento com o Mau, meu namorado, Mexicano que trabalha com difusão da cultura latino americana. Juntos nós alugamos nosso espaço, enquanto viajamos ou mesmo um quarto, quando estamos em casa. Fique a vontade para escrever e perguntar qualquer coisa.
