## Please notice we have special rates and/or a different minimum night stay during Carnival and New Year's Eve. We're renting the whole apartment in New Year's Eve and Carnival, since we'll be travelling. Send us a message before making a booking request ##

We are a young couple, a college student and a musician. We live in Botafogo, a district very well located in the South Zone of Rio de Janeiro. Perfect for exploring the beaches and mountains and the beautiful historical center of Rio de Janeiro.

The apartment is located near shopping malls, cinemas, beaches and the main postcard of Rio: the Sugar Loaf.

Want to enjoy a bar? Just across the street. In order to shake da Lapa? In 20 minutes by bus, subway or taxi there you are. Want to know the famous Sugar Loaf, the bucolic neighborhood of Urca and the beautiful Red Beach? A light 30 minute walk and you get there. Copacabana is also just a few minutes, check on their feet or take a drive, you choose.

The apartment has two bedrooms, living room, kitchen and two bathrooms. The guest will share with us the living room, kitchen and bathroom. The building has 24 hour doorman, a play and a terrace with a beautiful view of the Botafogo Bay, Sugar Loaf and Christ the Redeemer.

The room has a double bed, ceiling fan and a small wardrobe. If there is a third guest will make available sleeping mats. We offer bed linen and bath.
Wireless internet is free throughout the apartment. You can use our computer if needed.

February 2013

We really loved the apartement: cosy, lovely decorated and perfectly located in Botafogo (2 minute walk to the metro station). Close to the apartment you will find everything you need: supermarket, pharmacy, bars & restaurants and even a shopping ceter.
Unfortunately we did not meet Flávia and Waldir because they were travelling the period we were in Rio. Instead we had the chance to meet Flávia's mum, Fatima. Fatima is such a great and caring person and both of us, me and my husband, were totally overwhelmed by her kindness and generosity. Actually we found one more friend in Rio.

I really loved to spent some weeks with Flavia and Waldir! They are both very kind, open-minded and really enjoy hosting people. They always tried to make my stay at their place as pleasant as possible and I really soon felt at home with them. In sum it was much more than I expected!

The apartment and the guest room are very comfortable, even for a longer stay. Flavia is fluent in English which is really helpful if one doesn't really speak Portuguese. There are 24hrs-door men in the building and the very lifely neighbourhood (Botafogo) is just in between Centro (12 mins by bus) and Copacobana (5 mins by bus).
