“A Beleza Oasis”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2014

Casa Beleza really is a great choice for Rio. Santa Teresa has a village-like vibe within the city and is an excellent base from which to visit the other parts of the city. It also has a number of excellent food choices and felt like a very safe area to stroll around at all times of the day.
Bindu was amazingly accommodating and helpful particularly when it came to organising how to get around the city and putting me in contact with excellent guides. The fresh and plentiful breakfasts were an ideal start to the day and the large comfortable room was the ideal place to end it.
I will certainly return to Rio, there was so much more to see than I could pack into 3 days. Casa Beleza will undoubtedly be my first choice for where to stay when I do.

On a recent trip to Brasil my girlfiend and I had the luck and pleasure to find this gem in the wonderful Santa Teresa neighbourhood. Upon arrival we where greeted with smiles and a warm welcome to what is a wonderful accomadation option. Our room was impeccable and the gardens and overall ombience was a pleasure. After a long haul flight the previous night from Europe wakeing up to the sunshine and smells of the beautiful garden, eating breakfast on the terrace was a perfect tonic. Bindu is a wonderful relaxed host full of local knowledge with some great advice on tours, restaurants and anything fresh in Rio. Santa Teresa is a great location giving the feeling of a 'real' local neighbourhood and it's well worth having a night or two local. Thumbs up and thank you Bindu. Roger + Catherine, Dublin, Ireland

I spent three peaceful nights at Casa Beleza after a few frenetic days on Copacabana Beach. Santa Teresa is an ideal neighborhood for seeing most of the attractions in Rio, and Casa Beleza is pretty ideally situated within Santa Teresa. The hosts are very accessible and make it their mission to ensure that you have a memorable and SAFE visit to Rio.

My wife and I stayed here for a week and loved every second of it.
The house itself is very beautiful and the rooms are everything you need.
Breakfast is great. Make sure you have some "Acai" it's also very nice!
Bindu is like a lonely planet on legs, full of advice and ideas so make the most of her. She also makes you feel very welcome.
Bob the dog will fend off any monkeys you encounter and Raul will show you how Brazilians play 'soccer'!

If ever in Santa Teresa we would stay here every time.

Thank you Bindu and Antoine

Thanks so much to Bindu for providing all the perfect ingredients for a wonderful stay in Rio - we stayed in the Bungalow which was really peaceful and really enjoyed the breakfast and the gorgeous location. Bindu was incredibly helpful with information, ideas and generally going out of her way to make our experience perfect.

I love this place! We stayed in the bungalow room during Carnivale this year, and it was little haven in the chaos that can be Rio. Antoine and Bindu were so informative and helped us navigate, being first-timers to the city. The grounds are well maintained and beautiful (we loved the monkeys, Bob the dog, and the turtles), and the room was clean and cozy. We loved the views from our patio, and breakfast was DELICIOUS! Loved the little cakes, french toast or omelettes every morning. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again - I was sick the day we left for a long drive to Paraty, and Bindu even called the hotel we were staying at to make sure we had made it okay and I was feeling better! Thank you Bindu and Antoine :)

Room Tip: Bungalow is beautiful!!

The connection between us, Casa Beleza in Rio and the Euro Deli in Montreal is more proof that the world is indeed a very small place!!! Thanks so much for your review, and I'm glad you enjoyed your stay with us and were feeling better for the rest of your trip.

Until next time!

Casa Beleza was a wonderful place to stay during our visit to Rio. We enjoyed the surrounding very much, our room was simple and clean, very comfortable and quiet. Our host Bindu was very kind and caring, assisted us with each question, problem we had. The breakfast served in the garden was very nice, each day something different, fruits, fresh juice, cakes. All in all we had the feeling of being at home while staying in Case Beleza.
