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 Copacabana

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

> 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

> 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,

Excellent Choice

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we arrived to our last day we couldn't have asked for anything more. The communication with Andreas from day one was excellent and when we arrived at the apartment Peter met us and showed us everything we needed to know. The location just across from the beach was excellent. The apartment was beautiful and very spacious and extremely nice. There were great restaurants in walking distance and we even walked downtown several times and did some shopping. There were some local grocery markets just a block away and this was nice. We were centrally located in a great area and visited several of Rio's tourist attractions easily by uber. It felt very safe and there was a lot of police presence in the area and even out walking along the board walk at night was wonderful. I would give Andreas place a 10 and highly recommend it for anyone traveling to Rio. If I ever make it back to Rio I would definitely stay here again. The price was great and trust me you won't be disappointed staying here.

Vacation time is a precious time, and it is job 1 for Peter and me to take well care of our guests. I am so happy that you were comfortable right from the start, and promise the same for our future guests. Come back again soon, Bill! Bem vindo a Rio! Abracos, Andreas

The owner of the property went out of his way, to make my family feel comfortable. It was close to the beach and stores. Thank you Andreas, Peter and Pedro.

Our stay in Rio was greatly inhanced by this apartment. The location was perfect for view, beach 2 minutes walk, restaurants and banks. We had business in Botofogo at Rio Sul shopping mall, a mere 10 minute taxi ride

R$15.00 ( US $5.00 ). The apartment was very clean and spacious. Pete Hult, the manager, was very friendly, and efficient. The owner, Andeas, was also very friendly and very responsive to to me through "Whatsapp" communications app. I hope Andeas's apartment is available for my next visit to Rio. I highly recommend this. Thank You, Andreas & Peter. GHW

Fantastic location and excellent service

  • 5 of 5

Great combination of a very nice place, with a great location and amazing service. Andreas was great from day one since I booked it. He sent me a very thourough document with do and don'ts for a Río de Janeiro visit. Even though that Andreas doesn't live in the area, he is very well represented by Peter. Our flight was an early arrival flight and he let us take a nap in one of the bedrooms while they were still cleaning the rest of the unit. That nap was worth a million! Thanks Peter! Peter sat down with us and showed us a map with key things to visit. I took a picture of it and had it in my phone for reference. Peter coordinated a driver to picked us at the airport, which I strongly recommend for the arrival. It was great to know that someone was waiting for you with a sign and then took us to the right place including the security guard clearance. For the departure, UBER is probably a better option, however, we prearranged both with Peter. The AlC units are a lot better than any hotel's unit. We slept very well. The beach is just across the street and the security is very good. Next door to the the apt, there is a very nice breakfast place called Appetite. We went there every day, nice expresso and omelettes for 1/3 of the cost of the hotel next door. UBER worked fantastic for us. We had dinner in Leblon Restaurants and went to the beach every day in both Copacabana and Ipanema. There are plenty of restaurants at walking distance, however, we like to go where locals go, so a $3-4 UBER took us to amazing restaurants. Saludos,

Owner's Response: Dear Carlos - thank you for your thorough review! I want to thank you, and the other guests who wrote the last few reviews before yours - for staying with us -- and for writing such positive and nice reviews. We are working hard (Peter and I) to make each and every guest's visit to Rio as pleasant as possible, and it is such a pleasure to know that we are succeeding. Your reviews will help future guests to get an idea what they can expect, Peter and I will take care of our future guests just like our past guests. I hope we will be able to see you all again in the future, staying with us in Rio! Abracos, Andreas

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.

15 Miles
Rio de Janeiro GIG 15 miles
Nearest Beach

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.
