2 blocks from the beach. Ocean view. 1 bedroom, living room, kitchen e a big terrace. Near to the subway, 15min bus to the center of the city. In a square full of bars and restaurants. With WiFi and a parking spot.

The space

This is an apartment to enjoy the beach, the terrace (with great view, hammock and shower), and to easily reach different touristic places of the city. The place can accommodate from one up to six people and is ideal for couples, families, children and groups of friends. It is ideal for who loves the sun!

A place to take the breakfast at the terrace, enjoy the beach and come back to take a shower. After some reading or taking a nap on the hammock, you can reach the main points of interest in the city in just a few minutes. Or you can make the opposite: explore the city at the morning and then relax on the beach till the sunset.

At night, some walking and some eat/drinking at Copacabana and Leme. Or take a bus or a taxi to Ipanema or Lapa to meet Rio's nightlife.


A. The apartment / Facilities
The apartment has only one big bedroom /office, but it can receive up to four guests with total comfort and, for families and groups of friends, even six guests if the living room is used. There is a couple bed and a pull-out bed at the bedroom, that has also air conditioning, wardrobe, an office desk and a bathroom with hot water. At the living room, there is a pull-out sofa and a simple mattress.

The living room is integrated with the kitchen and the big terrace. The kitchen is equipped and the terrace has a big summer shower, a hammock and another small bathroom with hot water. There is a great view, to the ocean at the left, and to the mountains at the right.

Wifi is available. There is a parking spot included and there is car rentals nearby. 24h doormen, clean sheets and towels.

B. Location

The apartment is located two blocks from the Copacabana and Leme beaches, at Avenida Princesa Isabel, the main entrance and main exit to/from Copacabana, from/to the direction of the Centro (downtown) of the city. It is one of the best locations to easily reach Ipanema/Leblon, Botafogo, Centro, Lapa and Maracanã. Near to the subway, 15min bus to the center of the city. In a square full of bars and restaurants.

Guest access

The place is at AVENIDA PRINCESA ISABEL, the main entrance and main exit to/from Copacabana, from/to the direction of the Centro (downtown) of the city. The building is number 350, the apartment is at the C-3 (Penthouse 3).

Take the KEYS with the doorman, asking for my name, Gustavo. They know you will arrive. Take the elevator to the 12th floor then climb another fligth of stairs and you'll find the door at the end of the corridor. There will be clean towells and clean sheets for you at the apartment.

From Galeão airport (GIG -International), you can get an executive BUS right outside the arrivals hall. Ask for the blue bus to Copacabana. It will cost you R$13,50 and it takes one hour to reach the apartment, passing trough the Maré favelas, the Port Zone, the Centro, and Glória, Flamengo and Botafogo, bairros (neighborhoods) of the south zone. It is a nice way to have the first contact with the city, before arrive at Copa. Some days you can be trapped at some boring extra traffic, speccially if you arrive at the rush hours. You will get off the bus in the first stop of Copacabana. Then, it's just cross the avenue and you're home.

If you prefer taking a TAXI, it's also very easy. Take only the yellow with blue stripe taxis, the street taxis. They are outside the arrivals hall. There are a lot of 'executive' taxis with other collors (there will be a lot of 'desperate' people asking you if you want a taxi, almost begging you to take a taxi.. Ignore them, and go to the line of yellow taxis), but they cost you much more for the same service. A street taxi will cost you like R$60 and will reach the apartment in about 25 minutes. Ask the taxi driver to take the first return at left at Avenida Princesa Isabel. It's just at the other side of the street, next to the Hotel Augusto's Rio Copa Hotel.

My partner and I had a great time in Rio, staying at Gustavo's apartment. The location is fantastic and so too is the terrace, with great views down to the beach. Gustavo is a lovely host, very friendly and helpful. I would definitely recommend and would look to book again if visiting Rio.

The apto is great and it's close to beach and most things you would need. It's quite noisy due to the busy main road. Gustavo was great and had easy communication with him :) thank you

We had a great stay at Gustavo's flat. The location was perfect and the balcony a real selling point. Gustavo was always on hand via text to help with any queries. Would definitely recommend a stay here.

We had a truly amazing time at Gustavo's place. The penthouse is absolutely amazing. Very spacious, clean, well equipped and the gazebo (varanda is not enough to describe) it's a real bonus. We've lost track of time relaxing on the hammock and enjoying the constant breeze. The location couldn't be better: very safe (police was around all the time), very close to the beach, a walk distance to Rio Sul, easy to catch a bus or cab, and with loads of restaurants and shops around. Highly recommend and would definitely stay there again. Gustavo was very nice and helpful in all matters. He helped to make our trip unforgettable.

We really had a nice stay in Gustavos apartment. The check in was easy and Gustavo always answered quickly. The terrace is absolutely amazing! The apartment was very clean, just in the kitchen we had a few ants, but it wasn't a big problem. We missed some tools in the kitchen, but this wasn't a big problem, too. We really can recommend the apartment.

The apt is amazing, the view and varanda is simply luxurious. The layout is open and well designed. And you're in Leme (!!!) which is the my fav beach neighborhood. But... the best part is Gustavo! He is super flexible and friendly. He let me stay with my paralyzed dog, my very very sick old dog, and my small chihuahua - I usually travel alone but as the old dog was so sick, I didn't want to leave him behind. So we all traveled together and Gustavo was kind and generous enough to let a crazy dog lady stay in his penthouse \o/ Incredibly grateful! (And the old dog is getting better :) Good vibes all around. <3
