The space

This apartment is where my mother lives. In 2016, she will be working at Columbia University, and I'll be renting the space. Of course, it is the apartment where she lives, and therefore the comfort, paintings, books, rugs, all integrated in a decoration made with love.
I really like the apartment specially the beautiful view and balcony garden.

The apartment is very spacious (150m²), and the balcony with 60m2 has many plants, flowers and small trees, with an automatic irrigation system. Tables, chairs, sofa, hammock and a double whirlpool tbathub, surrounded by plants, make this space the charm of the house. A retractable ladder gives access to a small terrace with two beach chairs, perfect for admiring the sunsets, the sea, the mountains and the sky.

There are two suites with double beds, and another bedroom, all with air conditioning. The largest suite opens directly to the area of the tub, and you can isolate this corner of the balcony with a bamboo screen. The living room and the other bedroom open to the balcony as well.
The other suite, with window to the back of the building, has a spacious closet and desk. The second bedroom has two single beds, a comfortable armchair for reading and a writing desk. The books are to be read, just put them back in place.

The living room is spacious and has a dining table, and a space with coffee table, sofa and armchairs. A powerful air conditioning (17 thousand BTU) is installed there. Taking the coffee table away, air mattresses can be used in the space for a larger number of guests. The 42" cable TV (which does not appear in the photos, but it has already been purchased) will be next to the plants in the room.

The common bathroom, with entrance from the living room, is complete and spacious.

The kitchen is well equipped with stove, microwave, refrigerator and freezer, and utensils such as espresso machine, blender, sandwich maker and a small electric oven. The service area has a washing machine.

There is a small extra bedroom with bathroom (former maid's room) that can be used for one person. This room has access from the kitchen and has a fan for hot days.
The building has 24 hour concierge and is very safe.

Interaction with guests

I will always have availability via telephone, airbnb message or
Count on me for information. Any eventual problem I live very close to the apartment so I can solve it.
I speak Portuguese, English and Spanish.
We offer shuttle service to the airport, if interested please contact us.
Also guided groups by walking trails in the city, including the Tijuca Forest, Corcovado, Primates waterfall as well as Horto, among others.

The neighbourhood

The thing I like most here is the beach, of course.
The super market and the 24 hours backery also make the life easier. There are lots of great restaurants and bars around. It´s a very safe region, being very well policed.

Getting around

The subway is very near the apartment, around 10 minutes walking , crossing only 1 street. There are lots of bus lines nearby, making it easy to go anywhere in the city, including the airports. For Ipanema leblon beach and to the center of the city and even santa teresa, you by taxi at most in 20 minutes (depending on traffic). Theres a bike rental, called Bike Rio, that´s in front of the building.

Other things to note

A mobile phone with prepaid SIM card is left in the apartment if guests do not have functional cell in Rio de Janeiro .

We stayed at Marco's apartment in the 1st week of the Rio Olympics. We were a group of 8 family members and friends. Its a perfect location next to the Copacabana beach and also a 5 minutes walk to the Olympic beach volleyball stadium. Apart from that its also nearby to the metro and easy to get to the Olympic Park and also easy to get to all other parts of Rio. The apartment is functional and spacy enough to accommodate 8 people. The big plus is the huge and lovely open balcony where we spent alot of enjoyable time having breakfast and hanging out drinking caipirinhas! The organisation with Marco went very smoothly. We would recommend Marco's place highly.

Beautiful apartment, with a great view, tastefully decorated and with everything needed for staying with a big family. The terrace is great, with a hammock, a Jacuzzi and a lot of plants. Located only two blocks from Copacabana beach, in a safe area with restaurants and supermarkets in the same block. Marcos was very helpful and answered promptly.

My family and I stayed at Marcos' mother's apartment for two weeks, and we couldn't have had a better stay. Marcos was an excellent host. He was flexible and accommodating to my family's travel schedule, and professional with all matters of our stay. He was readily available to respond to any issues or questions I had. The apartment itself is gorgeous. It has a beautiful view of the neighborhood, and it's only a couple of blocks from the beach. I would definitely recommend Marcos to any traveller going to Rio.

We had a great time at Marcos's place. It was a beautiful oasis of calm, in the best part of Copacabana. The apartment is truly a home away from home, and the balcony with the jacuzzi and hammock and lovely plants is a true highlight. The pictures and description of the place are very accurate, and I would definitely recommend staying there. Marcos was very responsive and reliable yet unobtrusive. In short, we could not have hoped for a better stay.

Staying at Marcos' place was great and is located in a nice neighborhood. The apartment is spacious, very comfortable for 7 guests, and has lots of natural light. The balcony has a wonderful view, and access to a rooftop. On the balcony there is a beautiful garden which also has automatic watering, so it does not require any work from guests. The rooms are nicely sized, and the bathrooms and kitchen are clean and functional. Marcos is a friendly gentlemen and quite welcoming. I strongly recommend staying here!
