Beautiful place and lovely hosts. Bindu makes you feel like being home and always has good advice and tips to make your stay in Rio a wonderful experience! The rooms and the garden with swimming pool are beautiful and the breakfast is delicious! Definitely the best place we stayed in during our holiday in Brazil! Hope to be back soon!... More

Right from the start we knew this was going to be a good place for our trip to Rio. Communication pre-arrival with Bindu was great and she was very friendly and accommodating at our arrival. The location is perfect if you're looking for something quirky rather than the typical Cobacabana & Ipanema resort kind of cliche. Santa Teresa is easy... More

What a super place to stay. It is my last night in Santa Terese :-(. I am enjoying a complementary caipirinha which Bindu (the owner) fixed for us both. To enjoy in the stunning bungalow that we stayed in. The bungalow was very secluded, surrounded by lush plant life. Some mornings, we even had star fruit on our private terrace,... More

My wife and I spent an amazing week in Rio and this was mainly due to Casa Beleza and its charming hostess, Bindu. She is welcoming, gives excellent advice and insider tips, tailored to the needs of visitors. Of course we loved the house and the area of Santa Teresa and very much enjoyed the generous breakfast prepared by Bindu... More

I visited Rio with my beau for my birthday and Carnavale. Bindu made the stay at Casa Beleza unforgettable. Her gracious and comfortable accommodations, delicious breakfasts, "insider" recommendations and generosity of spirit made for an unforgettable time on my birthday and viewing the samba school competitions at the Sambodromo. I highly recommend you stay at Casa Beleza and make day... More

We stayed with a group of 6 friends in Casa Beleza for Carnival. It was a hit! Everything was perfect. No wonder that Casa Beleza is a Tripadvisor winner. The location: Santa Teresa is great. On a hill, very nice old houses, most of them Villas, charming, bohemiam, fun, relaxed and a great Bar Gomez. Casa Beleza is wonderful. The... More

After cruising into Rio and all the frustration of embarkation, arriving at the beautiful Casa Beleza B and B was a welcome relief. We knew we had made the right decision the minute our taxi pulled up outside, and Bindu welcomed us into her grand home. After speaking to a local of Rio on the ship we were heartbroken our... More

Wow! What a wonderful, comprehensive review! Just a few corrections - the market in Gloria is in fact, every Sunday and I'm convinced that the tortoises are, rather than oblivious, completely attune to the fact that there might be some fruit at breakfast for them too! But thanks for such a great description of the neighbourhood and your experience staying... More

We had the extreme good fortune to choose Casa Beleza to spend four days in Rio after a month long cruise around South America. The accommodation was comfortable and the amenities were super. Lovely garden and pool. The most outstanding feature of the B&B was the charming owner Beju, who provided outstanding advice on what to see & do in... More

We stayed at Casa Beleza for 4 nights in January during our trip to Rio. Casa Beleza is a relaxing, tranquil, beautiful oasis in the middle of this crazy, wild city! Set atop a hill in the charming Santa Teresa neighborhood, Casa Beleza feels like your own private home. The gardens are lovely, as is the pool area. Bob the... More
