Rio de Janeiro apartment description

Dear visitor to Rio de Janeiro,

You will feel very comfortable in this brand new 2-bedroom ocean view Copacabana apartment.

Why are we so sure about it?

Because we love to stay in this apartment also, when it is not rented to you. We made sure that our renovation added all the amenities needed for ultimate comfort--jacuzzi, bar, computer workspace with high speed internet connection, three plasma TVs with cable TV, a full home entertainment system, and much more.

We gutted the whole place and re-built it from the ground up. Example: No cheap and noisy window air conditioners. We have three ultra quiet high capacity wall mounted air conditioners.

And then we mulled over the color scheme--and came up with the elegant warmth you see in the pictures. You will feel cozy and comfortable!

We spent way too much money on this apartment--living up to the motto that your place away from home should be even better than your home--and we know we have succeeded here.

We really hope that there will be SOME gaps between the rentals, so we can enjoy our wonderful place also....

                      Car: Not Necessary

                      Rua Souza Lima is a small local street, both quiet and lively at the same time. Right around the corner from Avenida Atlantica, 50 meters from famous Copacabana Beach. No through traffic on our street. Yet- several restaurants and bars at the door step of our building, fun and convenient. The area is very urban, with every kind of store, super market, pharmacy etc.. around the corner. The closeness to the ocean, however, makes for an airy feeling of space, light and fresh air.... you will feel very good and happy at our apartment.
