2 blocks away from the beach and a few steps from the main commercial artery in the neighbourhood, Ave. Copacabana, this house comfortably accommodates 10 people in 5 totally independent studios/bedrooms equipped (each one) with WiFi, Air Con, fridge, microwave, toaster, coffeemaker and basic utensils, private bathroom.
With a modern, industrial-like ambiance, the house has view to the area in front of the pacified Pavão-Pavãozinho favela's main street entrance, and close to the typical Copacabana's residential buildings from the 1960s.
All bedrooms are fully equipped (each one includes private kitchen equipped with everything (fridge, microwave, coffee maker, toaster, blender and basic utensils) needed to prepare simple meals (breakfast and quick meals), not involving heating since there is no stove for cooking.
This house has been totally remodeled with demolition materials and transformed from a traditional house from the 1950s, into 5 totally independent and functional studios/bedrooms. The entrance facing Rua Saint Roman is neat and clean; minimalist, totally welcoming.
The environment inside is quiet and relaxing, contrasting the liveliness of Pavão-Pavãozinho, one of the first favelas founded in Rio de Janeiro sixty years ago when migrants from northern Brazilians came to live in the city to work in civil construction. It is common to hear loud music coming from the bars and restaurants in Rua Saint Roman, and easy to see motorcycles, cars and people eagerly going in both directions, as it happened in a typical, busy street in Rio.
Pavão-Pavãozinho was pacified back in 2008; it is also expected to see police patrols at the entrance and in the surrounding areas.
