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.

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!
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.
