The best and most waited events planned for the coming years are in Rio de Janeiro: Carnival and the 2016 Olympics Games. We, from Rio de Janeiro, are exited to welcome every tourist with open arms!
I have a comfortable room for rent in the apartment that I live that can accommodate up to two people. The building has an excellent location, in the heart of Leblon. It’s two blocks away from the best and most prestigious beach in Rio: Leblon. The apartment faces the rear side of the street, thus it is very silent. It’s located next to Antero de Quental square, the most famous in Leblon. The metrô will be read in August 2016. It's a great location with several transportation options right in front of the building to take you to the most beautiful sights of Rio de Janeiro .
By walking 10 minutes you are at Rodrigo de Freitas Lagoon, 15 minutes you arrive at Ipanema or Gávea and in 20 minutes in the historic Botanical Garden. Overall, Leblon is the best neighborhood of Rio, due it’s safety and quietness. You can walk without any problems 24h per day and access everything you want.
I have a varanda with a lot of green plants and a hammock. It is a special place for relaxation and meditation. The living and dining rooms are prepared as an art gallery, with artworks from all over the world.
The room I’m renting has two single beds and was designed with the same artistic concept of an art gallery. It has a TV 29" LCD , 10GB internet with Wi-Fi, ceiling fan and air conditioning.
You are more than welcome to use the kitchen, which is equipped with refrigerator, stove and electric oven. You can also use the washing machine and clothesline for drying your clothes.
The bathroom has whirlpool tub and a great shower, plus a toilet, all shared with the home owner, who is an engineer and former art dealer who currently works with education for sustainability.
The building is quiet, with elevator and four apartments per floor. We have a doorman who also lives on the building.
