I recently moved into a 2 bedroom apartment in Barra da Tijuca, and I am renting out the extra room.
The apartment is in a closed condominium (Barra Bali) with an armed guard, receptionist and a gatekeeper (24/7), located between Barra da TIjuca and Recreio.

The apartment is brand new, with 2 rooms, 2 bathrooms, balcony and kitchen, with a refrigerator and oven/stove (all new), couch and dining table swimming pool, all very new and clean and very close to the beach.
The room for rent is not furnished, so you'll need to put in a bed a clothes wrack and an air conditioner in the summer (all removable, since its a rental).
Available from October Protected content the end of July Protected content .
In order to keep the place organized and clean the room is only available for 1 person, preferably very clean and organized.
