The location is very good, the hosts are very nice, and the caipirinhas excellent! The house is in a private, secured and quiet street, near to the beach (five minutes walking). The room is confortable and clean. Very good stay!

The rowdy Copacabana is one of the most traditional
and old areas from Rio de Janeiro. This neighbourhood
is a blend of Brazilian soul - crowded, rowdy and
