Opinion on this address to rent during World Cup?

Hi TA, I am looking at homeaway.com and have an offer of R1200,00 to rent this place for 6 nights:

Serv. Mata Atlantica, 91 praia da Joaquina or in Portruguese:

é Serv. Mata Atlantica, 91 praia da Joaquina - Lagoa da Conceição.

It's listed as a four bedroom/3 bath house.

Firstly is this a good area to be in?

Does the deal seem fair, or too good to be true. I've never used homeaway.com it says the owner has been on it since 2009 but the property has no reviews yet.

Thanks as always to anyone who replies.

Where in Rio is this. This does sound too good to be true. 4 bedrooms going for $90 a night.

I've been looking since November and never came across a deal that good. For 2 bedroom, you are generally paying $110 a night, anywhere close to Copa, in Botafogo you can find $80 a night for 2 bedrooms.

I used Airbnb, i can recommend a travelagency in Rio to you, but they may be expensive

To put things in perspective, I booked a two bedroom on Copa, for 6000 BRL for 4 nights.

Sorry JAC you are in the wrong forum lol, it's not Rio, its Florianopolis. Yeah for Rio I'm paying $75 a night for a hostel bed! Also updates, the place is 2 bed/2 bath. not 4/3.

Could not find it on the map. If it is actually somewhere between Praia da Joaquina and Lagoa da Conceição, should be nice. Lagoa da Conceição is a great place to stay and Praia da Joaquina is a great beach to enjoy. But you have to check where it actually is.

Proper address might be "Servidão Mata Atlântica" -- but I still could not find it.

The actual address in Google Maps is Servidão 4. It's a lovely area!

I would go for a more central and reliable area, like Praia Mole or Lagoa da Conceição
