February 3, 2016 in Room Rental by cipcipTrip

Despite the fact that Rio may have less four and five star luxury hotels than previous host cities, it makes up for this with some of the most incredible luxury rental apartments, condos, duplexes, villas, penthouses and mansions available anywhere. Some of Rio’s luxury accommodations are on the beachfront, or built on hills and mountains, sporting unobstructed views of the sea and tropical forest that will both stun and amaze.

As mentioned, many luxury rental apartments in Rio are on the beachfront, or are a street or two away from some of the world’s most famous beaches such as Copacabana, Ipanema and Leblon. Copacabana, one of four main 2016 Summer Games locations, plays host to the “must-see” men’s and women’s volleyball competitions and more.

If you intend to visit Rio to enjoy the 2016 Olympic Games, yet prefer some privacy away from the crowds and center of action, Santa Teresa might be the perfect location for your stay. A fifteen to twenty minute drive from Copacabana beach and situated above Lapa, it is located up on the hilltop, a perfect getaway for those who prefer some peace and quiet away from the hustle and bustle of the heart of Rio.

Santa Teresa is the perfect place to stay when tranquility, incredible city views, charming and sexy boutique hotels with rooftop pools, villas and cliff-top mansions, is the criteria. Santa Teresa is quiet, relaxed, and artsy, with cool local bars, local music, great restaurants, and a San Francisco-like trolley train.

Barra de Tijuca, one of the four main areas in which the 2016 Summer Games will take place, is the location of the Olympic Park and provides housing for 10,500 Olympic athletes. The bulk of the 2016 Rio Games will be hosted in Barra. Completely different than the heart of Rio, it’s more like Miami Beach and the Hollywood Hills, and, depending on traffic, is about a 30 minute drive from Leblon and Ipanema. Barra has many modern high-rise luxury condos with balconies with resort-like pools, villas on cliffs with oceanfront views.
