About this listing
Stay in a private oceanfront apartment located in a famous Rio landmark! Set in Upper Leblon, "The Zeppelin Mansion" was for decades one of the most renowned hotspots in Rio for live music and mingling with Brazilian celebrities. Today it has been converted into a gorgeous tropical "albergue" but it still retains the mystique and charm of its wild glory days. The lush tropical gardens which surround the Zeppelin are the home to many species of birds, butterflies, and tiny monkeys. And the huge upstairs terrace provides one of the best ocean views in the city! This private apartment has a full ocean view from your own window, a private bathroom and kitchen, and a private outdoor entrance. It is just minutes away from all the best restaurants and nightlife of Ipanema, Copacabana, and Leblon. Buses, vans, and taxis all pass by in front and take you everywhere in the city easily, 24 hours a day.

The House Rules
Rio is a place of freedom where people come to enjoy themselves, so I encourage you to have as much fun as possible. However, there are a few things I ask:
1. When nobody is in the apartment, please turn off the lights and especially the air conditioning, to conserve electricity and save the planet.
2. The front door/gate locks automatically when you close it so it is not necessary to "double lock" it when entering or exiting.
3. Please respect the other guests.
