While everybody talks about the crisis in Europe and the American employment rates, in Rio de Janeiro we are in the opposite side of a discussion ( and supply and demand law) at least for the niche of furnished apartments in Zona Sul. As we all know, Rio is going through this boom because of the series of mega events, shows, conferences and to find good quality furnished apartment in Zona Sul maybe one of the hardest tasks today, even for the most experienced rental companies in Rio. House hunting became a real “mission impossible” task for many locals and foreigners who need design or nicely done furnished apartments. They simply evaporated and the reason for this phenomenon is the subject of this post in Belavista-Rio Blog.
Below, Leme Executive Apartment Video - A great Option in Zona Sul:
House hunting in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil became a nightmare for everyone working with foreigners in Rio: expats agencies, re-location companies, specialized agencies and real estate consultancy companies, not to mention the corporations that are recruiting these foreigners. The reason for this scenario is a product of a combination of simultaneous situations.
1) Law of supply and demand – There are simply much more people looking for apartments in general in Rio than the construction market could supply, in terms of new launch. One of the reasons is obvious: In Zona Sul, there is nowhere else to construct new buildings. The Zona Sul “area” in Rio is literally built between the mountains and Rio´s shoreline / beaches.
2) Because of Rio´s booming oil industry, Brazil is importing executives because of the lack of specialized marine engineers and naval constructors. In the face of this reality, there is a huge influx of foreigners to fill in the gap of these positions. The consequence is you have an added number of searches for these kinds of apartments.
3) Short time rentals. Many apartment owners in Rio, especially in Copacabana prefer to rent their properties for very short periods, which normally deteriorate the apartment. The net result is that the few apartments “left” sometimes are not up to the standards of executives who naturally want clean, design, sophisticated apartments to stay in, especially if they are moving with their families.
4) Many foreign executives prefer to live or experience “an authentic live of a Carioca”, and that normally means the Zona Sul, (South Zone ) area in Rio. With this, Barra neighborhood which indeed has many new buildings, sometimes is not an option, and therefore limits again the “house hunt” to these few refined apartments at Ipanema, Lagoa, Flamengo, Copacabana, Leblon neighborhoods. Many views Barra as a “Miami” experience since you need a car even to buy your fresh bread, so Barra sometimes is not really preferred by some foreigners, especially Europeans. (The theory is not valid obviously if the company in which the executive was hired has its HQ at Barra. )
5) Finally, some Brazilian who indeed have good properties are resistant to see the opportunities (and advantages) of furnishing an apartment for medium length rentals. Some still think people will not treat their property with care and avoid making investment in quality furniture and finishing. Because of this, new comers to this market have to be educated about how effectively the market works, the ROI, until he finally decides to give in, and elegantly decorate his property (and consequently earn much more…)

So, to conclude, what you may be experiencing in terms of house hunting in Rio is more than true. The fact is that to find “quality apartments” in Rio you have to spend hours and hours of research, with no guarantee of success. In this case, the best option we suggest is a specialized search, which can try to conciliate wishes & desires with what is in fact available, or scheduled to be available. In any case, don´t give up, because Rio is worth the effort! Cheers!

We know you have heard of Copacabana and Ipanema, but what about the Flamengo district in Rio? I bet you do not know that the neighborhood hosts the most amazingly designed buildings in Rio, including the famous >Biarritz, the “little Castle” and even a Carioca version of New York’s legendary Dakota building. Located between the city centre and Botafogo, Flamengo-District lies on the edge of Guanabara Bay, having the most spectacular view of the Sugar Loaf. The beachfront area is dominated by the Flamengo-Park, "Parque-do-Flamengo"that was built on nearly 300 acres (1.2 km²) of land reclaimed from the bay and is to date the world largest in-city park. Until the 1950s, Flamengo-Neighborhood and Catete were the principal residential zones of Rio's wealthier middle classes and that may be the reason why some of these landmark buildings were constructed here. Let us now walk through some of these living treasures.
Biarritz Building in Rio: Perhaps the most well known building in Flamengo-District is definitely the Biarritz Building, located at Flamengo-Beach, 268 . Considered an art-deco masterpiece in Rio, the Biarritz has its construction finalized in the beginning of the 40´s, being a copy of an existing building in Paris, on Montaigne Avenue. This art-déco landmark was designed by French architects Auguste Rendu and Henri Paul Pierre Sajous, who designed two other art deco structures in Flamengo-District: the Tabor Loreto Building (beach corner with Paysandu) and the Saint Trinity Church (located at Senador Vergueiro Street ) built in 1938. See below picture of the Biarritz Building.
Some of the reasons for Biarritz’s elegance fame include its rounded balcony with its yellow awning and imposing marble entrance hallway The Biarritz has 2 apartments per floor and a unique winter garden in Rio designed with a lovely water fountain.
Seabra Building: Designed by Italian architect Mário Vodret, from the Instituto Profissionalizante de Roma, the Seabra Building, a.k.a. the Carioca Dakota, was finalized in mid 30s, the second building at Beach. The Seabra Building is considered the most “ghostly” in Brazil, with its eclectic architecture mixing the Moorish, the Gothic and Tuscan elements. Experts identify Seabra building’s lines with Chicago architect Louis Sullivan . The building has 4 apartments per floor and a facade that greatly resembles the famous Dakota building, John Lennon’s home in New York. A legend says the Portuguese Commendatore Gervásio Seabra commissioned Vodret the building after falling in love with the architecture of a castle in Tuscany. The building’s psychedelic entrance was built to haunt: floors with several designs made of Italian marble, different wall paintings finished with whale oil and immense iron luster.
Seabra Building (a.k.a. Rio´s Dakota) seen above in a fabulous picture above is located at the lovely district.
Flamengos “Castle” – Castelinho-do-Flamengo: Designed in 1916 by Gino Copede, it had its plan signed by Francisco de Santos, since Copede was Italian. Originally, it was the residence of the Portuguese construction mogul Commendatore Joaquim da Silva Cardoso. The building, which sometimes is referred to as the haunted house, shows eclectic art-nouveau architecture mixed with gothic and baroque lines. Nevertheless, the Italian tendency stands out, with a high slate-roof-tiled tower. Abandoned for several years and damaged from a fire, the building was renovated by the City Hall and from 1993 on, the Castelinho has held the Cultural Center Oduvaldo Vianna Filho, (doing honor to the Brazilian playwright). Today the Castelinho-do- Flamengo offers rooms for video exhibitions and theatrical performances, a coffee bar, and a video library with 1800 movies in its catalogue.
See in picure below Castelinho in details:
Tabor Loreto Building: Taking over the corner of FlamengoBeach with Rua Paissandú, the project of Henri Sajous articulated the two facades of the building through the cylindrical volume of the corner, which was finished with glass and grated with delicate ornamentations, smoothing the encounter of the two ´portions of the building. The result is an elegant and proportional set of lines.
Below we see true Art Déco vintage item. Its an original brochure from the Paysandu Hotel, probably from the forties. Very cool!!
Paysandu Hotel: This is another epoch building worthwhile paying a visit. The Hotel façade and the hotel hanging sign couldn't represent more the Art Déco style. The hotel reached its popularity peak in the fifties, when it accommodated Uruguay National Soccer Team during the 1950 World Cup in Rio. Uruguay eventually won the cup adding prestige to the hotel. Botafogo, one of the most traditional soccer teams in Rio, also used to Paysandu Hotel to prepare for its important games. Mythical soccer player Mané Garrincha and Nilton Santos were frequent guests of Paysandu Hotel.
These are only some of Flamengos architectural gems. Other art buildings in the neighborhood include the Modern Art Museum, Julieta de SerpaTeahouse and the outstanding twin buildings Hicatú and Itaúba at Senador Euzébio street. Visiting_Flamengo, if you are careful enough, you will be able to find a pearl in every walk, apart from its natural beauties. If you love architecture and art, try to settle in this charming neighborhood on your next trip to Rio. But don't forget to bring your camera along!
Lately I have been receiving dozens of emails regarding apartment rentals in Rio de Janeiro. People have sent me many questions and concerns, asking what are the average prices of apartments in Rio, their best locations, best deals, established companies, what should be included in the vacation apartments and so forth. This is when I decided to write a basic guide on renting apartments in Rio, Brazil. Some down to earth tips might save you some monies and avoid headaches.
The first thing you need to know when renting a vacation apartment in Rio< is that it’s a legal well established business within the tourist industry in Brazil. Many Brazilians and even foreigners buy apartments in Rio exactly for this purpose. Investors commonly buy used apartments and renovate them to offer the best comfort as beach rentals. Let’s now discuss the main points you should be note when selecting an apartment.
Prices: prices in vacation apartments in Rio can vary significantly. Generally the more luxurious, the more expensive are the apartment prices. Beachfront apartments also carry a premium in their prices. Another rule is obvious, the greater number of rooms, the pricier it gets. (Although if you travel in a group, with 3, 4 or 5 couples, the price per person per room is actually lower when renting an apartment with 4, 5 or even 6 rooms.) Prices are normally charged by number of nights. That is, if an apartment costs US$ 100.00 p/day, 10 nights will be US$ 1000.00. Discounts can be considered above 30 days rentals. Prices per day can decrease for longer periods, since a longer stay will be booked. How much per day? Usually fair apartments in Flamengo can be found starting at US$ 90,00 a day. Two bedrooms apartments inIpanema, Lagoa and Leblon, all beach neighborhoods can vary from US$ 150 to US$ 300 a night, on average. If the apartments are located in high floors, if they have private pools and/ or hydro massage bath tubs, prices can rise significantly.
Locations/ Neighborhoods: Like any other major city in the world, prices vary by per different neighborhoods and zones. Most expensive apartments are all found on the South Zone (called "Zona Sul" in Portuguese), specifically in the following neighborhoods: Ipanema, Leblon, Lagoa,Copacabana/a>, Flamengo and Botafogo. Barra da Tijuca, once a separate beach neighborhood, also offers some very luxurious flats and residence services, but you need to have a car to drive around since public transportation is limited there. Ipanema, Lagoa and Flamengo have been considered the safest neighborhoodsCopacabana/a> has a large selection of apartments, and can sometimes turn into a good cost/benefit relation. Need some one liner neighborhood highlights?
Here they are:Ipanema:Fashion shops, trendy restaurants, and gorgeous beach. Leblon: upscale shopping mall, excellent restaurants and bookstores.Lagoa: nice park, tranquil night kiosks around lagoon; Copacabana<: wide apartment selection, public transport, eclectic environment. Flamengo: family type neighborhood, Flamengo Park, famous street bars. Barra: beautiful beach, Miami hype constructions.
Rental Agencies: The most popular way to find a rental agency is through the web. Rio offers several rental agencies, some of which have been providing this type of service for more than 25 years. The great majority of vacation rentals in Rio are serious in their business, delivering what they claim. Most of them display a list of apartments they own or represent, either by neighborhoods or by number of rooms. They present up to 10 pictures of the rentals and a small description of the amenities and apartment surroundings, so you can familiarize with the region. When you are choosing the apartment, first try to identify yourself with the neighborhood you are staying in, as well as your budget. This will save you time and help in the selection process.
The picture above from Copacabana, was gently provided by Guillaume Massardier, from France.
Once you know what where you want to stay and how much you can afford, browse through the apartments list and see if there is anything you like. Once you see something you like, send an e-mail to the company stating which apartment you have in mind, and a second or third option, case that apartment is taken. (Many rentals offer an on-line bookings calendar view, which may save you time as well.).
To find a list of rentals agencies in Rio, type in Google “Vacation Apartment Rio” and check the results. You will find more than 10 agencies only in page 1 of your search.
How are Payments made:Most Rental agencies in Rio take Pay-Pal, money wires, credit cards and cash. A reservation deposit is necessary to secure your apartment reservation. Companies have different reservation deposits policies. These deposits can vary from 30% up to 50% of the total stay amount. After the agency acknowledges the initial payment, the balance due is normally paid on entrance and key delivery of the vacation apartment. Most companies however do not return reservation deposit for Carnival and New Years holidays, due to great demand. Check the cancellation policy in company’s website or via e-mail.
Amenities: Vacation apartments in Rio also vary a lot in terms of their included amenities. Most of them offer by default a complete kitchen, cable TV, Internet access, air conditioner in the rooms and linens/towels. This would be the minimum acceptable. One level above, rentals can provide CD/DVD player, clothing washing machine, coffee machine, and safe. Luxury apartments in Rio and residence service flats additionally can offer hot-tubs, private pools, and even gourmet kitchen utensils.
Rio-de-Janeiro Do´s and Don’ts: Another fundamental tip when selecting an apartment is to be attentive in the reservation process. Once you have decided for the rentals agency and the apartment in mind make sure you have all your questions and concerns promptly answered. It is the agency’s obligation to make sure you feel comfortable with your choice. Your rentals contacts should be courteous and receptive. Don’t hesitate in finding another agency if they are rude, since that attitude may follow through your stay, and you definitely don’t want that in your vacations.
If you have any friend in Rio de Janeiro, ask him/her to visit the apartment. This procedure is pretty common. Another tip would be to try to plan ahead. As soon as you have your travel dates secured, start your “apartment hunting”. Be sure to ask for a contract as well, and read all of the buildings do´s and don’ts.
Observing these tips and hints, you will not regret having selected an apartment rental instead of a hotel. I truly believe Rio is a city full of wonders and hosts the friendliest people on earth. Remember that the best vacation apartments in Rio get filled up very quickly especially during New Years and Carnival. So make sure you book well in advance.
Today we are going to provide you with an important tip when traveling to Rio-de-Janeiro: Hotels or Vacation beach Rentals?

The basic reason is that vacation beach apartments have proven to be a winning proposition for local and international tourists who seek for fun, quality, security and privacy in Rio-de-Janeiro.

Dream tourists now desire a new kind of proposition for rental accommodations: the enjoyment of a true local experience.
