Quiet cool apt on residential St. in iconic & practical spot. 1 block from all amenities, inc Metro, cafes, markets, bank. Only 3 blocks from best bathing beach @ Ipanema yet less than 15-min walk to all 3: Copacabana, Arpoador, Lagoa. PERFECT. :)
IPANEMA, Rio's best location. Block/s from beach, shops, cafés, metro... The entire 156 square meter (1680 square foot) apartment is available for rent, housing up to ten.* Discounts are available for week-long or month-long stays, per request, except during New Year's or carnival.
We're a quality full 5-bedroom apartment private accommodation in the nicest & most convenient part of Rio--Ipanema near Copacabana--just 3 blocks from the beach (Ipanema, Arpoador, Copacabana, Lagoa all walkable), 1 block from the Metro, great restaurants, handicrafts and produce markets, juice bars, excellent supermarkets, banks and more.
The apartment is a duplex penthouse (two floors) with incredibly practical layout in a small cute building near the metro and every possible amenity, yet quiet and cool. The building is built according to designs of the early-mid 20th century, maximizing ventilation and meant to operate in an indoor/outdoor fashion. Most windows are kept open for breezes, with fans in each room, and the apartment faces the back of the building--a vegetation-covered rock and garden that helps keep things cooler than out on the street.
1st floor: living room, kitchen, 3 bedrooms (2 queens, 1 single), hall office, complete bathroom with separate shower and bath tub.
2nd floor: large living area, large veranda with green view and manual canopy awning, two bedrooms (1 queen, 1 king + single/3 singles), bathroom and laundry area.
In total there are three bedrooms furnished with queen beds, one with twin, and one with king and bunk over desk for additional sleeping, totally 10 comfortable bed-spots.
Note that photographs include personal items that are no longer on site.
The building has no garage, doorman or elevator, keeping costs low. There are two short flights of stairs prior to reaching the apartment. The apartment is consistently 3oC cooler than the street and well-ventilated with ceiling fans in each room and view of lush vegetation out windows.
Ideal rental for tour groups, families, visiting researchers, young urban professionals, and avid beach-goers. Preference is given to temporary rentals of 1 week to 6 months.
Note that Rio has a noise ordinance and NO NOISE IS ALLOWED BETWEEN 10pm and 8am. This is not a party house.
Rio Gaia is an eco-friendly option, given proximity to public transit (1/2 block from Ipanema metro), walking distance from Ipanema beach, Copacabana beach & Lagoon, 2-story walk-up (no elevator), fans rather than A/C, recycling facilities, nearby locally-produced organic farmers' market, and more.
Cost includes electricity, water, gas, Wifi, condo fee, property tax and weekly cleaning on Tuesdays.
A set of sheets, towels and blanket is provided per guest and cleanings/changes occur weekly on Tuesdays, but guests of over two weeks are expected to wash their own items unless otherwise arranged. Stroller and travel cot/pack n'play can be provided for families.
Entering Rio Gaia Inn feels like arriving home.

I'm a town planner who runs an NGO that works with community leaders from favelas across Rio. Search for "Catalytic Communities" to learn more. I was born in the UK but raised in Brazil and the United States, so I'm happy to provide informal support to researchers, volunteers and visitors interested in local culture, favelas, & politics. You can get more out of your time in Rio by staying with folks who know the city!
