A typical Brazilian family apartment located steps away from two metro stops Flamengo State park, Christ the Redeemer, grocery stores and more. If you want to explore the city, this is the best location for you.

The space

Equally located between the Maracana stadium and Ipanema/Copacabana beaches. Situated five minutes walking from Largo do Machado metro and ten minutes to Flamengo park and beach.

Located in the historic neighborhood of Catete, this walk up apartment is surrounded by many conveniences- including local juice shops, bars and restaurants, grocery stores and churches. The apartment has space for four people, with one queen bedroom and a sleeper sofa. The building was constructed in the 1960s and has the charm to reflect that era. Only 8 apartments in the entire building. The apartment has an electric shower, fully equipped kitchen, free wifi, brazilian cable tv,
AC in the bedroom and windows overlooking tropical trees (if you get lucky, you may see a monkey or two).

Full use of the apartment and set of keys to open front gate and individual door. There is no doorman in this building.

A true Brazilian neighborhood and escape from traditional tourist hot spots. Close to Flamengo beach, Flamengo Park (largest in the city), Sugar Loaf, Christ, the former palace of the President and a few metro stops away from downtown and other famous beaches. Convenient access to Santa Teresa, Lapa and other nightlife.

Less than five minutes walking to Largo do Machado or Catete metros. Bus stop right outside the door. Grabbing a taxi is a piece of cake. Galeao airport is 30 minutes by car.

Make sure you visit the Maze Hotel and jazz bar at the top of the favela Tavares Bastos.

Wow! We stayed at Rodrigo and Christine's place for carnival and what an experience it was. As Rodrigo and Christine are overseas they had their wonderful parents/in laws to hand over the keys and welcome us into their home, and did they ever, a cold beer waiting for us on arrival! The apartment itself was very clean and homely, the area quiet and close to all the necessities. Cant recommend this place enough, incredible experience and just lovely hosts, even after accidentally breaking one of the portable fans Rodrigo and Christine offered to cover half the replacement cost. Thank You again guys. Luke, Ursi, Matt and Eddy

We were very well received by Carlos and Fabio (dad and brother Rodrigo) waiting for us at the apartment when we arrived. We had several welcome gifts (cachaca, pass for Christmas Eve, fresh mineral water, fresh fruits, coffee, soap ...) GREAT !! And a lot of good mood! They gave us good advice and helped us when we needed it. The apartment is large enough for 4 with one bedroom with air conditioning. The kitchen is very well equipped. Everything is perfect. It is located in a very safe area, close to the Largo Metro Mercado and the place which hosts the shuttle departures for the Corcovado. It is not far from the Flamengo Beach, but we have not had time to go. Excellent location. The price is very reasonable and perfectly justified. Our best rental stay! We highly recommend! A big thank you Rodrigo, Christine, Carlos and Fabio!

Rodrigo and Christine were great! Both were super responsive and easy to connect with via email or mobile or text. Their parents (who you interact with at the apt) were also so incredibly friendly and generous and made you feel at home. The family is amazing and easy to work with, and kind. They all went out of their way to make sure we were welcome and taken care of. The location was perfect--you are easily a 2-3 minutes from Largo do Marchado, a metro stop that can get you everywhere. You're about 3 stops from Copacabana, 4 from Ipanema, and 3 from the city center. You can walk to the Corcovado transit location, you are 5 min from banks (ATMs) a grocery store and restaurants. This was the perfect location and super accessible to everything. The apartment is def. worth the price--you get everything you need (kitchen, great wifi, laundry, etc.) the location makes it perfect, and its close enough to everything that you do not miss out. We mostly took the Metro, but you could just as easily walk or take a Taxi to Lapa, Leme, St. Theresa or the other places folks hang out. It nice to be close to everything, but not right in the center of it. Its a great, safe neighborhood and location for a longer stay.

Accueillies par Carlos le père de Rodrigo qui nous a bien expliqué sur l'appt et le quartier, + corbeille de fruits tropicaux délicieux et les 2 derniers jours par le frère Fabio. L'appt est bien situé à l'étage supérieur d'un immeuble calme bien aéré, lumineux (grandes fenêtres), vue sur les arbres (pas de vis à vis), bon quartier sécurisé à Largo de Machado, métro, bus, commerces, supermarchés, bureaux de change, restaurants, snacks. Accès rapide à pied à la plage Flamingo, et en métro/ bus vers les autres sites célèbres de Rio. 3 ventilateurs dans les 2 pièces, 1 grand canapé-lit à déplier dans le salon/ salle à manger, 1 grand lit Double dans la chambre + A/C fenêtre , matelas confortable, armoires, commode à tiroirs, étagères. La TV grand écran plat de très bonne qualité, très appréciable pour regarder les défilés du carnaval au sambodromo. La WIFI fonctionne. Les propriétaires nous ont mis 1 distributeur d'eau fraîche avec 2 bombonnes d'eau minérale. W.C. douche très appréciables par ces fortes châleurs 37°C que nous avons eu pendant le carnaval, mise à disposition de shampoing gel douche papier W.C. L'appartementt a des recoins supplémentaires pratiques pour les valises, les costumes, les 2 étendages à linge. La cuisine est grande et aérée, avec tout le nécessaire pour cuisiner. Je recommande cet appartement qui est très pratique et où les propriétaires font le nécessaire pour nous rendre le séjour agréable. Merci pour nos vacances réussies. Sabine et Nat
