I always put in a lot of planning "work" on Tripadvisor before a trip and Casa Beleza really lived up to the top billing. The rooms are big, classy, clean and very comfortable; the garden is beautiful; the breakfasts were delicious and bountiful; the location is perfect (very safe, for Rio, and near lots of great restaurants and bars); and...

Casa Beleza is a lovely place to stay with large rooms & bathroom & a good breakfast. The hosts were really friendly and helpful & Bindu in particular offered great advice for activities. The location is good for Santa Tersea and my dad who is in his 70s and no problems with the hill top setting although others might do.

The house is great and in the garden is a piece of rain forrest! I saw toucans birds colibris (beijaflor) when I was using the pool. I also liked the couple who attended, they speak a lot of different languages and have a very open culture.

We had a wonderful 3 nights here. We stayed in the bungalow. It is up alot of big steps so may not suit everyone. The garden was lovely and included 2 live in turtles, hummingbirds and visiting monkeys who used power lines as their own personal roads. Breakfast in the garden was just lovely.

Casa Beleza is a true gem and the hosts make you feel instantely at home. We stayed a family of 4 in the attic room which can easily fit both adults and kids.

We enjoyed our stay in this lovely little guest house - great host who helped us with where to go and things to do in Rio. Santa Teresa is a lively suburb with small Brazilian restaurants and bars. Easy walk to Santa Teresa or taxi into downtown Rio. Nice breakfast and felt well looked after throughout our stay! Thanks!

Lovely to have met you, so glad you enjoyed your time in Rio and Santa Teresa. Just to clarify, Santa Teresa is not a 'suburb' but in the heart of the centre of Rio, within less than 10 km of Copacabana, Ipanema, Sugar Loaf Mountain, Christ the Redeemer, Lapa, and the Historic Centro. Hope to see you back again one... More

My husband and I stayed in Copacabana for the first three nights in Rio and to be honest, we didn't love the city immediately. It wasn't until we came to Casa Beleza and fell in love with the neighborhood and character within Santa Theresa, that we developed a newfound appreciation for the city. The locals within Santa Theresa, and Antoine,... More

Staying in Santa Teresa

Neighborhood Profile
Santa Teresa
Santa Teresa is a bohemian enclave hosting many local artists’ studios. The narrow, winding streets of this neighbourhood were revitalised years ago, and visitors can now stroll through this area to view magnificent mansions dating back to the late 19th and early 20th century. A highlight not miss: Museu Chacará do Céu, a former mansion turned museum which houses works by prominent Brazilian modern artists.
