The Space

Down from Carnival or New Year's $1199 in photo studio 6 days

The rest of the year this is a photo studio. We only rent this for New Years and Carnival, World Cup and Olympics.

It is quite spacious, 34 m2. Only 1 block from Copacabana beach, located at a quiet pedestrian only square with nice view from 2nd floor window. Quite safe, everything gated. Good air con. Main room about 4.5 m by 6 m, 16x20 feet.

We have a good single foam mattress, and a double air mattress by Coleman. They are on the floor, no real beds.

No visitors, for safety reasons. There are studio equipment and personal belongings. No internet access, though excellent loaner 3G sim card can be discussed.

US$ 599 for 2 people up to 6 days New Years and Carnival.

WORLD CUP PRICING in the range of US$ 160-220 dollars. I might accept shorter then the usual 10-14 day minimum. On longer periods during world cup we might want to use the studio for accasional photo work, in which case we would entertain additional discounts.For carnival and New Year's this is not needed.

Not a perfect apartment, no kitchen, but microwave and fridge. But best for eating out.

The photo studio equipment will be around, shoved to the side.

Closets are pretty full, but you have place to hang your clothes. Other clothes probably is best kept in your suit case.

Good for young people who do not seek luxury.

A very basic TV is included.

We can discuss you to come to my apartment, 80 meters away for occasional internet access or urgent viewing of football games on ESPN



I have the following 3 rooms in my apartment where I live

Suite 2: small but fine

Suite 1: big, King size & Jacuzzi

ROOM 3, small, simpler, a bit less privacy, no own private bath but shared bath, no own TV, no own fridge. Less then perfect housing, cheaper. Usually my own room, rented mainly for holidays

PHOTO STUDIO, HALF A BLOCK AWAY IN ANOTHER BUILDING. used for professional photo work most of the year. Rented only on holidays. Your own spacious entire private apartment.

Restrictions: Sleep on mattresses on floor, no visitor privileges, no internet (may discuss occasional visits to my main apartment or a 3g internet chip).

Cheaper, sometimes shorter minimum rental periods.

It is preferred if you would agree, during longer rentals, the studio owner to occasionally use the studio for photo shoots. We would arrange this well in advance, in exchange we might discuss a bit better discount or a free photo shoot for you.

This is quite private, usually you get the keys and are on your own. But you can call or message for advice. I can advise you via phone even before you book. Just get a verified phone number on your airbnb profile, and I can call you without knowning your number and without violating airbnb privacy rules.
