Copacabana Bela Vista - Ocean Front Apartment

The apartment is in the epicenter of the Leme/Copacabana neighborhood.

Interaction with guests
I provide more than just a place to stay. I have a 20 page guide with versions in English, Portuguese and Spanish with some of my favorite restaurants (and off the beaten path eateries) locally and interspersed throughout the city. The guide describes the best way to get to the various main tourist attractions, how to participate in the outdoor life. It also describes the culture life and includes some self guided tours. I am always available available to give you suggestions on what to eat, see, do and experience before and during your stay. My assistant Charlotte is a tour guide and can also help you with your planning. She speaks English, Spanish, Portuguese, Swedish, and Norwegian.

About the neighbourhood
The neighborhood is great. It is very safe and much more peaceful and serene than Copacabana. There are some outstanding restaurants in the area and some night life as well. You can rent bikes across the street, play beach soccer (football) or volleyball, rent a paddle board at the other end of the beach, or go for an ocean swim.

A couple of blocks away, you can catch buses to any part of Rio day or night. 10 to 15 minute walk is the subway. Taxi stands are a minute away and Uber drives normally reach you within 5 minutes. Very convenient and central location to get you anywhere in the city.
