The property itself is a landmark of the city. Dignitaries and diplomats have stayed at this house when it was owned by the Governor of Rio. Staying at Casa Beleza is a one-of-a-kind experience. The grounds are spectacular. Our family of seven stayed in the two casitas and one of the rooms of the main house. Everything was impeccably clean... More

We had a wonderful stay at Casa Beleza. Wonderful and welcoming, charming rooms, clean and bright, and friendly owners. Our daughter loved feeding the monkey and playing with the owner's daughter. Thank you for such a memorial stay in Rio!

Excellent Place to Stay! We stayed in the “The Villa” which was very comfortably appointed, spotlessly clean, and had a balcony with a nice view. Nice breakfast and excellent coffee!

I wasn't sure what to expect when booking two nights at Casa Beleza. However, it was the best idea! We stayed 3 nights in Ipanema at the beach and 2 nights in Santa Teresa at Casa Beleza. It's about a 30 minute cab ride from the beach, but costs only $15 or so. We told the taxi the address, which... More

Every great city should have an accommodation like Casa Beleza. It seems to have the perfect balance of indigenous architecture, overall comfort, and hospitality. The atmosphere, the view, and the rapport with the owners and their local knowledge was superb. Our accommodation was the one-bedroom loft. The spiral staircase was interesting and something delightful to be remembered. Starting the day... 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.
