Renovated cozy micro-hotel like room with air, private entrance & bath, +wifi in Copacabana. All the comforts of a hotel room at a fraction of the cost. Located near Ipanema this room saves you tons of money to spend on vacation fun and experiences!
I am renting this cozy room in a building on the beach front in Copacabana!
The room has been remodeled with a hotel room in mind. It is super clean with a private entrance and bath, powerful air-con, mini-fridge, coffee maker and new shower. Note to couples - there is no door between the bathroom and the room itself. The room has a double bed and wireless broadband internet (30 mb "N" WiFi).
The room is small, about 65 square feet, while the bathroom is 25 square feet but it has been specially furnished to maximize the space. It is great for singles and suitable for couples.
The room has a lock to which only you have the key so your belongings are secure.
This room is superbly located on the safe end of Copacabana beach known as Posto 6. The room is in the back of the building so no sea views but it is quiet which is priceless here in bustling Rio de Janeiro.
You will be steps away from both Ipanema and Copacabana beaches and the surfing hot spot of Arpoador.
It is a fantastic location to explore all of Rio de Janeiro. Ipanema is a short 5 minute walk away and bus stops to all destinations in Rio are right across the street.
Economical airport buses drop you off literally at the front of the building for R$14 vs. R$60 for a metered taxi. The subway station is 10 mins away by foot.
Supermarkets and great restaurants are just steps away. There is a fantastic 24/7 restaurant on the same block with wonderful restaurant choices up and down the beach road, Avenida Atlantica. The beach kiosks across the street are open all night for those spontaneous midnight coconut water or caipirinha runs.
Rio has a reputation as a violent and dangerous destination but this is rapidly changing. This room is in one of the safest places in Rio. There is a 24/7 doorman on call in the building to let you in and out and attend to any and all requests. A prominent building resident has additional private security posted in the lobby in the evenings. I am available on a moment's notice to help you with any questions you might have.
A laptop computer is provided if you don't have your own to map your way across Rio de Janeiro. An unlocked cell phone is available for those who want to buy a SIM card for easy local calling. Lots of beach gear can be used with prior notice like fins, body board, and mask/snorkel.
Enjoy the beach lifestyle with biking, stand-up surfing and the world famous beach all right across the street.
Don't get stuck in gritty urban Lapa or on top of a hill with no late night transport options in Santa Theresa. Come on out and stay on the beach where all the locals go! (5 night minimum stay required during New Year's eve and Carnival)

Interação com os hóspedes
I make it a point to personally greet all guests and show them around. After that my guests enjoy lots of privacy. I live in the connected apartment and am usually available immediately for any circumstance that might arise.
No smoking, pets, drugs, guests or parties. This is a residential building so quiet time after 10 p.m. You must use the beach entrance in the back of the building after returning from the beach. Please shower all the sand off before entering the room. Electricity is extremely expensive so please turn off the air con when you leave. Please do not take towels to the beach. The local sarongs are cheap and make wonderful beach accessories.
Hi! I am a native San Franciscan relocated to Rio de Janeiro. I like outdoor activities and I love to show people the best Rio has to offer. Beach vollyball, hiking to the Christ statute and to hidden waterfalls, night swimming in Arpoador, biking around Lagoa, stand-up surfing right out the front door. Combined with the fantastic nightlife, this makes Rio a truly wonderful city. I am offering this room at a budget price to help you save money for what really counts when travelling - memorable experiences!
