The space

Stay in an oceanfront apartment located in a famous Rio landmark! Set in Upper Leblon, "The Zeppelin" mansion was for decades one of the most renowned hotspots in Rio for live music and mingling with Brazilian celebrities. Today it has been converted into a gorgeous tropical albergue' but it still retains the mystique and charm of its wild glory days. The lush tropical gardens which surround the Zeppelin are the home to many species of birds, butterflies, and tiny monkeys. And the huge upstairs terrace provides one of the best ocean views in the city! This studio apartment has a full ocean view from your own window, a private bathroom, and kitchen. It is just minutes away from all the best nightlife of Ipanema, Copacabana, and Leblon. Buses, vans, and taxis across the street take you everywhere in the city easily.
Amenities include:
-private outdoor entrance
-private bathroom and kitchen
-WIFI internet
-free gated parking
-free access to the Sheraton beach across the street
-bike and jogging path nearby
-a short walk to Post 12 Beach, home to great surfing, a free outdoor exercise area, and Rio's most beautiful people!
-a safe, secure environment
-air conditioning and ceiling fan

My name is Jake, I'm American, and I've been living in Rio for over 10 years. This apartment is available for long or short term and I have other apartments available as well. I can accommodate groups. Inquire for rates and availability during New Years and Carnaval periods. Get ready to have fun!

House Rules

The House Rules

Rio is a place of freedom where people come to enjoy themselves, so I encourage you to have as much fun as possible. However, there are a few things I ask:
1. When nobody is in the apartment, please turn off the lights and especially the air conditioning, to conserve electricity and save the planet.
2. The front door/gate locks automatically when you close it so it is not necessary to "double lock" it when entering or exiting.
3. Please respect the other guests.

The area is very quiet, the apartment has a nice view of the sea. Furniture are a little outdated, but everything works properly. Jake and Cristina are very kind and helpful. A good place to stay for the Carnival if you want to stay in a safe area without being involved in the 24…

Jake was hospitable and responsive, and I enjoyed this location very much. There's a lovely ocean view and the ocean-facing wall of the apartment is mostly glass - amazing for natural light! There are effective blackout curtains for mornings you want to sleep in. The locatio…

This apartment is the best way to experience Rio. It is very close to Leblon, and you can walk 5 minutes to the beach. Jake is very nice. The place is not a 5 star hotel, for that you have the Sheraton in front of you, probably 10 times more expensive. The ocean view is unbelieva…
