The Villa is located in Copacabana, the heart of Rio de Janeiro. Thanks to its wonderful location, you can easily get to other famous carioca neighborhoods: Lagoa, Leblon, Ipanema, Botafogo, Flamengo, and Centro. The famous Copacabana Beach is at a walking distance of five minutes and there is a subway station just two minutes away.
The property is managed by Thiago Bassi and Rodrigo Barbosa. It is an ideal venue for families and groups. We offer services such as maids, cooks, and a concierge, which are included in the rental.
It is well-suited for small to medium-sized events and has a well-equipped kitchen with full catering and dining set. It accommodates about 75 people for dinner buffets or receptions. Our concierge can have Brazilian or European chefs cater your events. Our cook can prepare family meals at a fraction of the cost of eating out. It makes for a great and inexpensive way to have a grand house party.
For travelers who are either inexperienced or do not know Rio de Janeiro, we can offer help with planning. We can also offer a complete set of services for your vacation, but in case you just want to rent the house, cook for yourself, and arrange your own leisure time, we will just supply you with a daily maid and someone to water the garden and clean the pool.
As of November 2018, The Villa can be rented along with a next-door Cottage, which is a three-bedroom 1870's New Orleans style Creole house, built around a central garden court.
All incoming guests are emailed an almost 100-page Guide to a great Villa vacation, which is constantly being updated.
For the security of our guests and neighbors, we are selective about whom we rent the property to. The villa is NOT suitable for noisy party groups. WE ARE NOT A BACHELOR PARTY VILLA.
Our rates vary depending on the size of the group, requested services, and the spaces you wish to rent.
The Villa is very charming, cozy and affordable — do not let the luxurious photos of the house scare you off. We love taking care of our guests and we do our bets to guarantee they have a memorable stay. Check our reviews here and on Facebook. We are the ultimate fun house for cool visitors.
