Spent 4 nights here on our way to a much longer trip in Chile. Found it to be exactly as we had anticipated from the research we undertook before selecting it (location, room etc). Perfect breakfasts (for us) - sitting outside in the garden with adequate shade, good coffee, fruit and different dishes each day. Both Bindu and Antoine were...

Everything about this place is wonderful! Bindu and Antoine are excellent hosts and they go out of their way to accommodate. They were both so great in helping us get to know the area, find restaurants, recommend tours and sights to see. They really know the area and all their suggestions were spot on. Santa Teresa is a great little...

We stayed at Casa Beleza for the first time back in 2011, and back then I said that it was probably one of the best hotels/B&Bs I'd ever stayed at, if not the best. I'm just getting around to writing the review now, but we were back in Rio in July 2016, and nothing has changed. Actually, scratch that: since...

I cannot say enough good things about Casa Beleza. Our stay here was phenomenal! From the hosts Bindu and Antoine greeting us and making us feel immediately at home, to the stunning views from our private rooftop villa deck, to the delicious breakfast prepared every morning.

This was a terrific place to stay to see "the real Rio"! Bindu and Antoine were fabulous hosts. There is so much to see and do in the Santa Theresa area and Bindu is very knowledgeable and helpful to arrange things for you to do. She has some excellent guides at her finger tips. She arranged for a local fellow,...

Thank you so much for your kind review, we appreciate it. Just to clarify, we are not on the 'outskirts' of Rio, but rather right in the centre of Rio with the Historic Centro, Lapa only 5 minutes by taxi, and the rest of the main tourist sites of Rio within 15-20 minute drive. And right here in Santa Teresa...

Casa Beleza is..... the most beautiful house! Our stay here made our visit to Rio a truly memorable experience.

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.
