We (my wife and myself) have spent 3 nights here together with our (autistic) son of 8 years old and our daughter of 11. Do not look any futher; just book here! Why? 1) Santa Teresa is an excellent location, it is very easy to catch a local bus or taxi (we read something different in travel guids but we... More

Casa Beleza is fantastic. We chose the bungalow as the last spot on our 12 days through Brazil and had a great time. On our first evening we walked down to Bar Du Gomez and quickly felt a bit like locals thanks to the kind welcome and good conversation of the friendly, mixed crowd found spilling into the street. Afterwards... More

We spent five fantastic nights at Casa Beleza earlier this month and couldn't be happier. Everyone at Casa Beleza was so friendly, Bindu was an excellent host with many recommendations and insights into the local area and Gabi and Donizete were so helpful too. It was great to stay in a family environment with pets and kids which made Casa... More

A beautiful mansion in Bohemian Santa Teresa with two wonderful hosts. Bindu and Antoine were so committed, helpful and patient with all my questions. Their place has a wonderfully serene and relaxed atmosphere. One hardly wants to leave to go sightseeing. Nice room, excellent breakfast, gorgeous view. Best B&B in Rio.

Myself and my partner stayed here for a treat at the very end of a long trip around Argentina and brazil. It's a beautiful place to stay, green and leafy with monkeys in the gardens and spacious light rooms with authentic wooden floors and stunning architecture. The service was faultless, the breakfast was the best we have had, probably ever... More

The missus and I had 3 nights here and really couldn't be happier with our experience (I also won a few brownie points with said girlfriend). Bindu and Antonie are superb hosts - friendly, helpful and super chilled. Bindu also has some sort of degree in Caipirinhas mixology because we were unable to compete with her creations at any bar...

We stayed just two nights in the Orange room at Casa Beleza in April 2014 and thought it was great value, the owner most helpful, the place is delightful in Santa Teresa, in our opinion the best part of Rio to stay in. David and Karen (UK)

I and a couple of girlfriend's stayed here over a weekend, I can only say amazing things! Bindu is an absolutely amazing host, going above and beyond to provide the things that we needed. The acommodations themselves are wonderful, the gardens are beautiful, and the pool is lovely. The breakfast in the morning is delicious as well.

I stayed 4 nights in Casa Beleza with my son. This is really a very special place: a charming house nested in a beautiful garden, located in a quiet street in Santa Teresa. The owners live there, with their family, and one cannot think of better hosts: lovely, warm and so helpful and efficient. For example, we needed to store... More

What a great end to our 3 months travelling! We stayed the last 2 nights of our travels at Casa Beleza and what a great choice it was. As mentioned in many reviews, Bindu and Antoine are great hosts. We were warmly greeted on arrival and provided with fresh juice whilst Bindu showed us a map of the area and... More
