All of the rooms open out on to a large 110 square meter garden with two large dining tables and a generous outdoor kitchen area with cooker, oven, microwave, fridge and bar table with 7 stools for guests.

The State of Rio de Janeiro region

Hot in summer, warm in winter, Rio's subtropical climate calls many visitors all year round. Sugar Loaf Mountain, Corcovado (the Christ figure with open arms perched on top of the sheer 2010 foot cliff) and the samba schools, are only a part of the attractions here.

Botafogo is a passage point of virtually all traffic going either to the center or to the south zone beaches of Copacabana, Ipanema, Leblon, São Conrado and Barra da Tijuca.

“Great Escape”

Reviewed 12 Jan 2013

My family and I decided to spend our Christmas holiday in Rio and looking back on it we couldn't imagine doing it without staying at this property. The accommodations were fantastic, allowing us to experience the busy beach and city life and then returning to basically our own home. Traveling with teenagers can be a difficult but having a place to call your own is a huge advantage. Charles and his entire family are incredibly warm and friendly and were one of the best parts of the experience. The proximity of the property to shopping, subway, beach and the city make it very simple to get around. The beautiful views and peaceful nature of the area make it an ideal location for a relaxing vacation. I would highly recommend this rental for anyone interested in visiting Rio and looking for a great experience. I am planning on returning for the Olympics in 2016.
