About the property

Apartment, 2 Bedrooms + Sofa bed(s), 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4)


Dear visitor to Rio de Janeiro,

You will feel very comfortable in our gorgeous 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 cool elegance 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....

About Andreas Lemperg

Hi, I'm Andreas and I welcome you to stay with us in Rio.

Andreas Lemperg purchased this apartment in 2007

Why Andreas Lemperg chose Rio de Janeiro

Rio de Janeiro is the most beautiful and vibrant city in the world. Many visitors to Rio book their next trip to Cidade Maravilhosa before they depart.

What makes this apartment unique

It's a normal neighborhood, with restaurants, bars, grocery stores etc. right there. The building has approximately 90% local residents and only 10% rentals. It's 50 yards to the best section of Copacabana beach. It's a big city neighborhhood with all services imaginable, yet our location is quiet and tranquil.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Andreas,

Nice to hear from you.

Yes, please copy and paste my comment to your webpage. There is no reason for not telling people how nice your place is in Rio.

I want to commend you for not being too greedy by pricing it right, so people like me can afford 2 weeks stay in Rio, and enjoy the charm of the city and it's surrounding.

Best regards,



> Hi Andreas,


> I am back home with my family.


> I want to let you know that we enjoyed very much spending our 2 >weeks

> in Rio at your apartment in Souza Lima, where everything worked to

> almost perfection.


> Peter did all he could to help us making our staying almost worry free.


> We liked everything about your apartment; it is spacious, clean, great

> location, safe, and quiet enough for vacation.


> We met and made many new friends, who live in Copacabana, Ipanema > and

> Leblon area. They invited us to visit them again and stay with them,

> but for our independence we will rent your place again in the future.


> We noticed that we needed to let the water run for a while before

Very nice apartment in a great location

  • 5 of 5

I can't over emphasize the location only a few meters

from Copacabana Beach! The apartment is also very

nice and beautifully decorated. Also it was very hot

when we were there and the air conditioning in the

apartment did a great job of keeping us comfortable.

It has a water filter which is a nice touch because it

eliminates the need to always go and buy bottled water

at the grocery store, which by the way, is right around the

corner. In fact, everything you need is only a short walk

away. The apartment is on the 8th floor which eliminates

a lot of the street noise below. We stayed there for a month

and really wanted to stay longer. One more thing, the property

manager, Peter, speaks fluent English and was always there

when we needed him for anything. The owner, Andreas, is a very

nice person who made sure that our stay went well.

Security is good as there is

a door man or woman there 24/7 to screen all persons entering the

building. The internet connection there is fast so I was able

to use my Roku to see a lot of U.S. tv stations.

All in all, I would gladly return for another stay there.

Perfect in so many ways!

  • 5 of 5

#1 The location was perfect! Close to the beach, places to eat and safe. #2. The owner Andreas and his Rio manager Peter were easily accessible from booking throughout the entire stay. They were very accommodating and quickly answered questions. #3. The apartment was clean, spacious and beautiful. There was not one thing we would change about this location or experience. We recommend without hesitation!

Extremely close to Beach and nearby amenities from food to souvenirs. Apt. is very safe and cozy.

  • 5 of 5

The apartment had great service starting with the owner Andreas who communicated very quickly and efficiently. He gave us great recommendations to nearby shopping places, which made it easy to decide what places to visit and see. Peter arranged for pick up and drop off to airport and additional transportation needed during our trip. Peter also gave us a private day tour which was great with no wait. The apartment is very welcoming to individuals and famiies, feels just like home. Unit has a great side view to the beach. Air in all rooms made the stay very comfortable. No problems with hot water and filtration system helped a lot as we packed our water everyday. Kitchen is a bit small but feasible for one person to do the cooking. All systems were relatively easy to use, had to get use to stove. Washer and dryer a lil tricky to use and dryer doesn't dry clothes all the way, but there are racks were you can air dry them. A perk to have free wifi (had a bit of trouble connecting, but rebooted and worked well). 24 hour Security in the building made us feel very safe. Outside noise or neighbors we're not a problem, very quite building. Will definitely consider staying here again. Loved loved how close to the beach and al shopping this place was.

Had a great time!

  • 5 of 5

We spent four nights in this apartment and had a wonderful time! Having a nice, comfortable, updated place to stay was a big relief, especially after a long day of sightseeing. The kids had their own bedroom and TV. Minutes from the beach , restaurants, groceries, pharmacy, and a 10 minute walk to the metro, this apartment worked out very well for us. We cooked a few times and did our laundry. What made it stress-free was the knowledge that you could reach someone (Peter) if you had a question or needed something. Andreas was very responsive before we got there. He and Peter arranged for airport transfers and we had no problems getting to and from the airport. Overall, a wonderful experience!

Owner's Response: Dear Sanjay and family, Thank you for your kind review. I am very happy that you enjoyed your stay with us in Rio, and that you were busy doing sightseeing in our cidade maravilhosa (our marvelous city). And it's exactly after a long day of sightseeing that one enjoys coming back to the apartment - which I call "an oasis of peace". Thank you also for your kind words about Peter and me. We think that the personal support is just as important as the standard of the apartment itself. I hope you'll have an opportunity to come back and stay with us again in he future! All the best, Andreas

Ideal location and everything you could need

  • 5 of 5

We spent a month in this apartment and were totally comfortable and felt at home. It is amazing how close grocery stores, a bank, the beach and public transport were. We found our way around the city and when we had a question Peter was always available through WhatsApp. Everything went smoothly just as they had said. We would recommend this property wholeheartedly.

And - EVERYTHING really is just around the corner, as you observed. Thank you for your kind review, and I hope that we will see you again in the future in Rio! Abracos, Andreas

Nearest Airport
15 Miles
Rio de Janeiro GIG 15 miles
Nearest Beach
50 Metres
Copacabana beach
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.
