********THE OLYMPICS************
Unfortunately, my penthouse has just been rented for the full month by a major Olympic sponsor.

I have good friends with 3 separate, luxury apartments, 2 of them in the same building, and the other one block away. Each has 3 bedrooms and are in prime and safe locations -- directly across from Copacabana Beach, with stunning views of the beach and only 5 minutes to Ipanema.

They can be rented together, for a total of 9 bedrooms, or separately with 6 or 3 bedrooms. The cost for each separate apartment is $1,750/night to $2,000/night.

Term: The owners are looking for rentals of 3 weeks or more.

If this might interest you, please write me and I can send you photos and more information.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2009

About the owner: I work in the magazine and documentary film business based in Los Angeles, New York and Rio. I discovered Brazil in 2000, and began traveling often to get to know the country and people better. With lots of flexibility in my work, I spend more than 4 months a year in Brazil. I bought this very special duplex penthouse 5 years ago. It's a bit a paradise just 2 blocks from the beach.

Why the Owner Chose Rio de Janeiro:
I bought this apartment because it was right in the middle of my favorite neighborhood, Copacabana. Copacabana is the original beach city of Rio. And has all the charm and life of a vital city. It's also so much more convenient to reach the downtown or other locations such as Ipanema.
