This is a great location in Rio de Janeiro, in between Copacabana and Ipanema!
It is two blocks away from Copacabana beach, with a subway station at the street (15 meters away), 10 minutes walk from Ipanema beach and Lagoa. Very close to all local bars, restaurants, and supermarkets, with a bakery and a cyber café nearby. The slum next to my house is completely safe, as well as all the slums of South Zone, you can safely walk on it all day, the image above is fantastic.
I’m renting a room in my apartment, so you will share the apartment with me . The room fits a couple, and I’ll provide bed linen and shower towels.
The apartment has cable TV, air conditioning, and you are free to use all kitchen gear (fridge, stove, toaster, microwave, pots & pans, utensils). It has a great ventilation, and I can offer a fan if you need it. The building is safe with 24 hour doorman at the entrance. The bathroom is shared by the two bedrooms.
Rio is a perfect city to be discovered by bike. We have more than 200 km of cycle paths, moving the whole border from Leme to Leblon, Lagoa Rodrigo de Freitas and Flamengo Park. The city has a great system of bike rental which costs $ 10.00 per month or U.S. $ 5.00 per day.
It will be my pleasure to help you with anything you may need (best places to go, itinerary…)
I would like to know a bit about you before you place the book, so please, when inquirying send me information about you such as age, nationality, purpose of your trip, how many guests, etc.

We had a wonderful stay at Denise place during our time in Rio. Denise is a very friendly, open-minded and lovely person with a big heart. She always had a smile on her face and she gave us a warm welcome. The place looks exactly like the pictures you can see here on AirBnb. The location of her place is perfect. It's only 5 minutes by foot to Copacabana. The metro station is only 2 minutes away. Ipanema (beach) a little bit more than 10 minutes. Supermarkets and restaurants are also a few minutes away.
The communication with Denise is funny if you don't speak any portuguese. But in digital age you can use your cellphone to translate.
All in all i can fully recommend Denise & her appartment.
La estadia donde Denise fue excelente, ella y el marido siempre estuvieron super atentos! El apartamento esta super bien ubicado, muy cerca a la playa de copacabana y de ipanema. El edificio y la zona muy seguro. Transporte publico es bueno ya que queda cerca al metro y al omnibus asi que es muy conveniente para conocer Rio.
La habitación es muy amplia y cómoda.
Super recomendado este lugar para quedarse en Rio.
After a whirlwind three week trip during the World Cup, I was so glad Denise's was last stop we made. Denise allowed us to check in early, since we were sleeping on the floor at the airport. The room was clean, airy, the linen was fresh and we had HOT WATER in the bathroom. And its a couple of blocks away from Copacabana, so thats as good as it gets there.
Denise and her partner don't speak English, but that did not stop us from interacting (hail Google translate!) and watch the Brazil vs Chile game together. All in all, don't hesitate, you'll be take care of!
You can't beat the location of Denise's place. You're minutes away from Copacabana and Ipanema, and there is a Metro entrance literally on the same block. So many possibilities right outside the door! The room is spacious, comfortable and clean, and it even has a minifridge in case you want to store some food. The shared bathroom is rather small; it'd be very tight if more than one person would want to use it at the same time. The neighborhood behind the apartment is a bit noisy. There were fireworks going off one night that made it hard to sleep. Of course, the World Cup was going on, so that might have had something to do with it. Denise is a very warm and welcoming host. She was always more than helpful if I had any questions, and she recommended a great place to eat in the neighborhood. There was a language barrier, but we were still able to communicate easily enough. I'd definitely stay here again if I came back to Rio!
Marty thanks for the comment, it is through them that I try to improve every day more like anfitriãn.
It is true that the bathroom is small, it is ideal for one person at a time, but on my ad pictures and also has written that the bathroom is shared if another guest in the room, but the bathroom has a great hot water shower, a large mirror and the bathroom is very bright, so you can not deny.
As for the noise that we are in full World Cup. And in June, is a traditional festival in the country, which is called "June Festival" so
I admit that the Brazilian people loves to party ... but if you come to Rio in another period, you will see that the noise is not that big.
Denise and her husband are great people, their place is excellent, and the neighbourhood is perfect for your stay in Rio (more specifically Ipanema or Copacabana). When we arrived, Denise was determined that we'd have a great stay. She provided an in-room fridge with water, fresh fruit, a hair dryer, and even replaced our towels midway through our stay so we could have fresh towels!
You'll wake up to gorgeous greenery right outside your window, and to Denise speaking in beautiful Brazilian Portuguese, eager to give you advice about your stay and help you with anything you need!
The neighbourhood was perfect! Very safe; charming; close to places to eat, the beach, and shopping; and you'll feel right at home. I highly recommend staying with the lovely Denise in her gorgeous, colourful home!
I arrived in Rio for the first time alone and have never enjoyed a trip as much as this before.
From beginning through till end I have felt like I was at my home away from home, and I mostly have Denise and her Husband to thank for this. A very friendly and easy going couple with a relaxed lifestyle. I will truly miss being here. I was treated like an old friend rather than a guest and couldn't be more grateful for having chosen you both. Muito Obrigada!
The room itself is amazing and very private with a lovely view into trees and sunshine to greet you in the morning. The flat is colourful and beautifully arranged and super clean, as well as the kitchen and other amenities in the house. Hygiene has never been an issue here. I was provided with clean sheets and towels regularly.
When I come back to Rio I will be sure to stay here again ,
e eu estou esperando quando voces vem pra Europa, me-deixo lhe mostrar a mesma hospitalidade.
