Charming studio, ideally situated on a nice tree-lined street connecting the beaches of Ipanema (2min) & Copacabana (5-6min). Well equipped, tastefully decorated, very bright & quiet, with a partial view of the sea and overlooking a garden. The building is very safe, with security cameras and porters 24h/24h. And with everything you might need within walking distance. The ideal place to enjoy the best of Rio!
(PLEASE NOTE : FOR NEW YEAR’S HOLIDAYS AND CARNIVAL, MINIMUM STAY OF 4 DAYS.)
Located on the 7th and last floor (elevator goes up to the 6th), the studio is very bright, airy and tranquil (sounds of waves and birds singing instead of cars buzzing — and maybe you'll even have the chance to see some small monkeys hopping among the trees!..) The building is well maintained and very safe, with security cameras, and smiling and helpful porters 24hrs a day. You can also enjoy the building's lovely and peaceful green courtyard, rarely used by other residents.
Recently renovated, the flat has a small but well equipped kitchen with a 2-burner steel gas hob, fridge, microwave, small electric oven, coffee maker, kettle, toaster, juicer, cookware and all basic kitchen utensils and cutlery ; a bathroom with shower / WC / hair dryer and toiletries.
The atmosphere is cosy, tastefully decorated, with air conditioning, two ceiling fans, cable TV 32'', high speed Internet, Wi-Fi, telephone (with free calls to local landlines). Equipped with a comfortable double bed and a couch with pull-out bed, it is an ideal flat for a couple, but can accommodate up to 4 persons. Sheets and towels (all pure cotton) provided, as well as beach towels & sarongs, ironing equipment and cleaning supplies.
The neighbourhood is fantastic : a 2-minute walk gets you to the beautiful Ipanema Beach (Posto 8) on one side, 6-8 min to the most picturesque part of Copacabana Beach (Posto 6) on the other side. And the area has many transportation facilities (buses, taxis, bike rental, subway is 8 minutes far), as well as supermarkets, drugstores, laundries, banks, shops, and a large variety of cafés and restaurants.
The owners speak fluent English, French, Spanish and some Italian (besides Portuguese, of course), deal with guests directly (no agents in between!..) and try to adjust, as much as possible, guests' arrival and departure times in a flexible manner.
Let yourself be seduced by this charming and very pleasant studio, an ideal place for a great stay in Rio !
Internet is free and unlimited. No extra charges for electricity.
And please make yourself at home and feel free to help yourself to anything in the fridge and cupboards : it’s all for you !
Interaction with guests
Living quite near the studio, we deal with our guests directly (key exchanges, showing how the house ''works'', trying to respond to their needs the most we can) and even if we also like to give them the privacy they require, we are always glad to answer any questions they might have and help them in getting the best out of their stay in Rio.
Other things to note
We welcome our guests in a very flexible manner, fitting in with their arrival and departure times as much as possible.
- Please don't forget to always close the windows when you go out, even if the weather is good and sunny outside : the climate in Rio can be very changing, and when the South winds begin to blow…
- Please make sure to turn off all electrical devices every time you leave the house.
- There's a water faucet in the building's courtyard to wash out the sand when coming back from the beach — and please don't forget to shake all the sand off your clothes and towels before going back inside.
We are Naruna and Pedro, both Brazilians, born and raised in Rio.
We lived in Europe for many years and had the chance to travel a lot around the world, so we have a pretty good idea of what travellers may want...

We are fluent in English, French, Spanish (and Portuguese, of course), can also manage some Italian, but if your language is none of those, don't worry, we will try our best to communicate with you !
