Our group came for the Olympics to Rio - which is a very busy hustle and bustle place. We had the luxury of returning each day to the beautiful, serene, relaxing home called Casa Beleza ran by Bindu. Let me just say this place is amazing - and our host runs a top notch B&B. Bindu is a professional and...

Really enjoyed our stay at Casa Beleza The property is fantastic and based in a lovely neighbourhood. Santa Teresa is full of charm and personality. The breakfast is fresh, tasty and fills you up for the day. Bindu is a great host and was full of good advise and tips. Would really recommend.

Casa Beleza was the perfect place to stay on our first venture to Brazil. The neighbourhood is cute and quaint but still manages to be bustling with plenty of restaurants, bars, and shops to pop in and out off. Bindu is an amazing hostess, arranging everything from a helpful car service (more expensive than a taxi but if you're a...

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...

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! ( coffee’s very very important to us! ) Bindu and Antoine are kind, thoughtful hosts and were so very helpful. The house itself is beautiful with much ambiance and charm....

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...

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...

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.
