We have one single room to rent from 12th Feb Protected content March, a double room from 14th Feb Protected content March or for shorter periods including just over Carnival.
You can see the rooms on airbnb:
The rooms are in a beautiful shared house. We have a small garden, composting and rain-water harvesting. There is a huge shared living room where we like to hangout with a hammock, small dining table and sofas. There is excellent wifi connection. The house dates back to the Protected content and has lots of period features including beautiful old tiles in the kitchen. The kitchen has plenty of space for cooking, a gas oven, large fridge and well-equipped with pans etc. We also have a washing machine, two showers and toilets.
Botafogo is a beautiful but less visited neighbourhood. It is more residential which means you don't get any harassment but it is perfectly located to get everywhere in the city being at the cross roads between Copacabana, Lagoa, Urca (and Sugarloaf Mountain) and to go to the centre. We are also really lucky to be able to walk to several beaches and Sugarloaf mountain from here. Botafogo is also a lovely neighbourhood because it has loads of old houses and architecture. It's a beautiful, friendly, safe and green place with supermarkets, banks, lively bars and restaurants all within a few minutes walk.
The house is ideally located to get to all parts of Rio de Janeiro but is tranquil and green being on a slightly smaller road and next to the mountain. It is 5 mins to the bus stops at Shopping Rio Sul where buses will take you to every part of Rio de Janeiro. We are a 10 min walk to the metro stop in Botafogo.
The price with depend on how long you want to stay and how many people, with some space for negotiation. However, it would be about R$800 per person for carnival plus around R$ Protected content one person for the whole month or R$ Protected content a couple for the month.
