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...

We stayed for 5 nights at Casa Beleza. This was our first visit to Rio and we received a lovely welcome from Bindu and Antoine. The advice we received on places to visit was excellent and Bindu was was very happy to book taxis and restaurants for us. It was better than having a personal concierge at a 5 star...

We stayed four nights in Casa Beleza and had a good experience. We stayed in the Bungalow up the hill, with amazing view from the bed and terace. The owners went out of their way to help us with amazing tours and guides to see the city. The breakfast was tasty, especially the maracuja-juice (passion fruit), yummie. Only downside is...

Thanks for posting a review.

Casa Beleza is..... the most beautiful house! Our stay here made our visit to Rio a truly memorable experience. Leafy Santa Theresa is a great neighbourhood - quiet, with lovely restaurants and shops but away from the hustle and bustle. The house is set within its own lush gardens (where Tamarin monkeys played in palms and eyed our breakfasts), immaculately...

Neighbourhood 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.
