We loved Casa Beleza... the local area was overflowing with interest. We stayed in the spacious, unique and comfortable loft room with the most perfect view through a Gothic shaped window out over Rio. The house was a serene and restful gem - immaculate... delicious breakfast, quiet and beautiful gardens and pool as well as welcoming hosts who could not do enough to enhance our stay. Great nearby cafes, bars and restaurants... shops. Too good to be true? Ahhhh... but it is! I want to go back.

Casa Beleza was the perfect base for our one-week trip to Rio, in the interesting area of Santa Teresa, ideal for quiet relaxation after a busy day exploring the more vibrant parts of Rio. All of the staff were friendly, helpful and efficient and Bindu especially was full of helpful advice. We stayed in the Villa which was well worth the walk up through the garden and also in the Loft with access up a narrow spiral staircase which was easily managed by a fit grandmother! Breakfasts were delicious and the two resident tortoises kept us amused as they wandered around finishing off scraps of fruit we left for them.

Casa Beleza is a handsome old villa in Santa Teresa with two separate cottages at the top of the garden, beautifully restored by Antoine and Bindu. It’s a family home as well as a guest house and is full of character and comfort. Around and above the main house is a lush garden, lots of birds, views of the city below, and plenty of places to sit and enjoy them, including around the swimming pool. We stayed in the bungalow at the top of the garden. It has a private terrace with hammocks and is wonderfully secluded and quiet – just the sound of birds and frogs outside. Worth the steep ascent! Excellent breakfasts: home-made jams, warm pão do queijo, and a lot more! And very useful advice on where to go and what to do. Casa Beleza is a pleasant ten minutes walk (downhill) to the shops and bars and restaurants of the main street of Santa Teresa.

This is a great place to stay if you want some peace and tranquility after spending your days seeing Rio’s main sites. The house is beautiful and the garden with the pool is serene and stunning. There is a taxi rank close by so you can get to Rio’s attractions easily, via the Metro or the taxi. The area is really interesting and we ate in two fantastic restaurants close by. The family and their staff are lovely and make you feel very welcome. The loft room was great for us. Breakfasts are very hearty. If we go back to Rio there is no other place I would stay. Thank you!

Located in a quiet neighborhood, this was for us the perfect place to stay to discover Rio. The hosts are very committed and helped us with all the smaller and larger issues that come up when in a foreign city. Also a great place to just hang out during the day.
