About

Welcome to our stunning penthouse in Humaita/Botafogo, the South Zone of Rio de Janeiro. This is a modern, bright and airy apartment with spectacular views of Cristo and Sugarloaf from the front balcony. The spacious apartment has 3 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, a study, an open living room, a fully-equipped kitchen, and plenty of outdoor space facing both the bustling city (out front) and a tropical forest (at the back). Also included are basic amenities including washer/dryer, cable television and Wi-Fi, an outdoor gas BBQ, outdoor shower, and two parking spaces in a covered garage. All conveniences are within walking distance, including a covered market with fresh produce, bakeries and cafes, and some of the finest bars and restaurants in the city (just a few minutes away). The apartment is about a 10 minute walk from the metro and a 15 minutes drive (bus or car) from the Catholic University of Rio de Janeiro in Gavea, FGV in Botafogo, and the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro in Urca. The apartment is 10 minutes by car from the beaches of Copacabana, Ipanema and Leblon and a 10 minute walk from Lagoa and the Botanical Gardens. There are good schools within 5 minutes walk. The listed rental price includes week-day cleaning and cooking (prices negotiable if this is not desired). Renting cars and bikes also an option. One caution: monkeys periodically show-up on the balcony, so keep alert! *We also have a truly splendid country home in the mountains a few hours outside of Rio de Janeiro.
