The space

Our GARDEN BUNGALOW has queen size bed, ensuite bathroom, air conditioning and private terrace with hammock and views over Santa Teresa. The room is located up about 40 steps up the garden path. You must be able to carry your own bags to your room.

There are no kitchen facilities but a delicious tropical breakfast is included, and there are fantastic restaurants just with in 5 minutes walk of the city. Daily maid service is included in the price.

Our Bed and Breakfast is located in the heart of Santa Teresa, the city’s charming historic district. This 1930’s mansion was the former residence of the governor of the State of Rio de Janeiro.

It features a swimming pool and 1700 square meters of gardens with small monkeys, butterflies, toucans, fruit trees and many rare flowers and plants of Brazil.

All rooms have private bathrooms, and guests are given their own keys for privacy and independence. There is a library, mini-bar, and facilities in the communal breakfast room. Check out our other rooms:

Santa Teresa’s cultural life, bars, and restaurants are only a few minutes walking (stumbling!) distance away. Five minutes down the hill takes you to Lapa, the home of Samba and Rio’s best bars, nightclubs and music venues set in the picturesque streets of colonial Rio.

The beaches of Ipanema and Copacabana are a short ride away, as is the Cristo Redentor.

We are very well served by local transport and the famous antique cable car of Santa Teresa.

The owners are a musician and a documentary maker - Antoine has produced several albums of Brazilian music, including Real Brazil - and is a great source about the local music scene. Bindu is currently making 101 Short Films About Rio - and shared her knowledge of Rio as local producer for Anthony Bourdain's No Reservations, when the famous chef and his crew were in town.

They are aways around over breakfast to share their best tips to enjoy the Cidade Maravilhosa!

Guest access

All rooms have their own private bathroom, and guests have their own keys and private entrance. There is a garden terrace for the guests, and they have access to the swimming pool until 20h00 in the evening.

Interaction with guests

Breakfast is included with the price, and every day we are available to help you settle in, arranging activities, answering questions or just pointing you in the right directions. We have been known to take a caipirinha (or two!) with our guests from time to time!

Other things to note

Please be aware that Casa Beleza is not suitable for those with mobility issues. The house has many stairs, and the local streets have many hills and cobblestones. Thank you for considering this before booking with us.

Bindu was a great host. She was always available and helpful whenever we contacted her. Her house is really beautiful and it is located in one of my favorite neighborhoods in Rio, Santa Teresa. It is the perfect place to rest and recover from being all day around in the city. The only problem was that the bungalow had a very strong smell, like mold, but Bindu put us in another room as soon as we told her.

Lovely stay at Casa Beleza, charming host who welcomed us at our arrival. The bungalow was very clean and nicely decorated with a splendid view on Santa Teresa, surrounded by trees and birds. Breakfast was delicious and plentiful (crepes, eggs, muesli, fresh fruits...). Casa Beleza is a definite choice for our next stay in Rio.
