The space

Stay in a private tropical oceanfront bungalow, adjoining 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 celebrities. Today it has been converted into a gorgeous tropical 'albergue but it still retains the mystique and charm of it's 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 amazing tropical bungalow has a fireplace and a front porch where you can watch the sunset and hope you never have to leave! It is just minutes away from all the best restaurants and nightlife of Ipanema, Copacabana, and Leblon. Buses, vans, and taxis across the street take you everywhere in the city easily.
Amenities include:
-free gated parking
-this is a fully contained private bungalow with a private entrance and total privacy, but with access to the adjacent Zeppelin mansion.
-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 are, and Rio's most beautiful people!
-a safe, secure environment
-access to the Zeppelin veranda.

I have other great apartments available as well, and I can accommodate groups. New Year's and Carnaval packages available. I hope to see you down here soon!
