Owner info

Year Purchased: 1938

About the owner: Hello, my name is Andre I was born in Rio de Janeiro and I love to travel. Favorite destinatios are tropical islands like Hawaii, Jamaica, Roatan, etc. If you are planning to visit, I will be happy to help you with that and thanks for reading. See you soon!

Why the Owner Chose Urca, Rio de Janeiro - State of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil:
I could not recommend this place more highly. It is beautifully decorated spacious and clean. It's a great location. It feels very safe and is very quite. It is located a few minutes walk from pão de açucar and about 20 minutes walk to copacabana. The cleaner was there to meet us and showed us the house. Was very easy to organise everything and contact was very prompt. We even mucked up the check out time and we were very well accommodated. We had seven adults and two babies and there was more than enough space. Two of the rooms are separate from the main house and separate from each other which was great for us. One of the best places I've stayed in will definitely go back if you are thinking of rio stay here. Charles from New Zealand - Stayed December 2014 Wonderful home, very centrally located in a great neighborhood. Urca feels like a seaside European village, I felt safe walking to the grocery store and local bars and loved how close it was to everything. Enjoyed waking up and running around the bay in the mornings. The house is clean & very comfortable, single-story and looks like it has been recently remodeled. The kitchen was great and I cooked several meals there. The location is spectacular -- 2 short blocks and you are overlooking the bay and Christ the Redeemer, as well as Sugar Loaf, and Praia Vermelha - a wonderful private beach with Paddle boarding and a nice restaurant with beautiful patio views of Sugar Loaf. Sarah from USA - Stayed July 2014 La casa está estupendamente, es amplia y cómoda. Los dormitorios son amplios y con muchos armarios. Las camas y almohadas son comodísimas, se duerme muy bien. El baño y la cocina también están muy bien equipados, y en general toda la casa estaba muy limpia. El barrio de Urca es muy tranquilo, y su localización es perfecta, muy cerca de las principales atracciones turísticas de Rio. Volvería a alquilar esta casa sin ninguna duda, fuertemente recomendable. Carlos from Sao Paulo - Stayed November 2014

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Urca feels like a small village without staying far from Rio's Center or Copacabana. Casual enough for everyday Cariocas (Rio’s native residents) and cool enough for celebrities to call home, With breathtaking views from its boardwalk. Revered for its small village feel and center city proximity, the neighborhood boasts the best of urban living coupled with suburban-style serenity. Considered the most safe and charming neighborhood of the southern area of ​​Rio de Janeiro. Best place to stay in Rio ever!
