Av. Alfredo Balthazar da Silveira, 580 - Recreio dos Bandeirantes, Rio de Janeiro - RJ, Brazil
NileGuide Expert tip:
This apartment is ideal for those who appreciate the leafy charms of Santa Teresa, being located close to all the neighborhood's amenities and on a quiet street next to the Post Office, a convenience store, organic cafe, two nice bars and a beauty salon. If you want to be next to the beach this is not the place for you!
If you've fallen in love with Rio and can't bring yourself to head home just yet, this large and light apartment could be the place for you. The anglo-Brazilian owners rent out their private home when visiting the United Kingdom, as well as over major party seasons such as Carnival and New Year.
Anyone who rents the apartment must have a fondness for animals - there is a resident dog, Clara, who has the run of a huge backyard but needs food and water (and the occasional cuddle) each day, and a family of monkeys who visit the huge veranda each day for a banana breakfast.
The owners reduce the rate due to the responsibility of the dog, which means guests can enjoy a large apartment with cable TV, Wii and Wiifit, DVD player and books, large front room with two double sofa beds; bedroom with French windows onto the balcony and comfortable double bed, fully kitted out kitchen and bathroom, all for a bargain price.
