(URL HIDDEN) * THE SPACE *
Our apartment feels like home: it is spacious, cosy and very comfortable ( 65 m2 - 2 BR).
It is not sophisticated, but it is definitely comfy - VERY clean and VERY well-kept - recently painted and furnished and with floors done.
It is a TWO BEDROOM apartment with an excellent double bed (REAL ONE) in one room and a comfortable DOUBLE SOFA BED (brand new!!! - arriving Oct 30) + an armchair which turns into a single bed.
Our place is very well-lighted and ventilated, too, as it is near two beaches.
It is also very convenient: near lots of supermarkets, drugstores, restaurants, bars, shopping malls - you name it!
The building is located on one of Flamengo's
main streets, and it is very close to the beach
- which is, unfortunately, not proper for bathing, but great for strolling,running and exercising.
The apartment is very silent - as it is is in the back and not facing the street.
Therefore, NO street noise or parties on weekends - it is an older building without a party common space.
Our place is perfect for a couple who seeks privacy,a family or friends who want a comfortable and convenient place(URL HIDDEN) :) BE VERY WELCOME!!!!! :)
PS: Great location - you will be close to Copacabana and Ipanema and also Lapa and downtown Rio ! ( please check the website bnb:https://www.airbnb.com.br/locations/rio - of - janeiro/flameng(URL HIDDEN) * * THE NEIGHBORHOOD **
Flamengo does have a lot of local commerce - such as places to buy fruit, snack bars where you can have wonderful fresh fruit juice ( don't miss drinking fruit juices in Rio - because they are really DELICIOUS, fresh, varied and incredibly cheap!:)), hair salons ( with great and affordable manicure service!), flip-flops and clothing stores + street vendors (fruit, coconut water, used books and even beach kangas ,bikinis and clothes!)
There also the park - Aterro do Flamengo, a fantastic and very green open leisure open área.
Flamengo is, indeed, one of the best nighborhoods in Rio: it is very very safe, calm, family friendly, and literally in the heart of the city - close to the downton area, Lapa -
with great night life & music scene, bars and
restaurants for all tastes and 'tribes' (it is the place where all the action is in Rio), and also Copacabana,Ipanema and Leblon - plenty of buses and also metro acess.
The location is perfect, as you'll be near the aforementioned places PLUS Maracanã (metro/bus) and other areas in Rio, including Niterói - direct bus opposite the building, the
bohemian flair of Santa Tereza, as well as Rio´s most traditional sightseeings (the Christ and the Sugar Loaf are pretty close too). From
Flamengo, you can go to all of those places by using local transport. :)

Um grande abraço,
I am an English/Literature teacher who has fallen in love with tourism to the extent of taking a course and becoming a registered tour guide. :)
I am a "carioca" (Rio de Janeiro dweller) and, about myself I can say I am interested in music, arts, cinema,literature, photography,
travelling - whatever is related to culture.
In fact, being able to have contact with different cultures is one of my objectives here .
I am married, have a most beautiful daughter, cats ( yes, I'm a cat lover :) ) & dogs.
We live in Niterói now (Niterói is Rio's "twin" city, linked to Rio by Niterói Bridge) - and this is the place where the cats and the dogs are - you do not need to worry if you are allergic, because our pets do not live in the apartment... ;)
I am retired, but keep working in a government school in Rio.
Actually, I must confess I have been working as a teacher for more than 30 years now...
I have been a hosting at Airbnb since World Cup 2016, and I try to do my best to help travellers have a real nice stay in my city (including tips on what to do and where to go in Rio).
I do hope you enjoy our charming city!
Be very welcome!!!!!
