Beautiful house with good common spaces and a nice swimming pool. The breakfast included a nice selection of fresh fruit, cheese and sliced meat, along with fresh juice.
There is a very limited snack menu, and evening catering possibilities, but these are only available with a long advance notice and on an exceptional basis. Evening dining options are also beyond comfortable/safe walking range in the evening, and the kitchen is not designated for residents' use. The property recommended ordering delivered food in the evening, or eating outside the residence at restaurants accessible by taxi.
Beautiful old colonial-style house. Loads of classical features - high ceilings, large rooms, ornate decor. Location was private and pool is very secluded with plenty of shade. Alexis the host was very friendly and accommodating. He is supported by some excellent local support who provided excellent breakfasts. Nothing was ever too much trouble for them. Santa Theresa is a great location with a bohemian feel and some good bars and restaurants. It has much more charm than the more touristy beach hinterlands of Copacabana, Ipanema and Lennon, so if you’re looking for an eclectic mix of art and culture, Santa Theresa is your place.
The bathrooms are getting to the state where they could do with some TLC - ie, all the fixtures are very old and whilst in keeping with the overall decor, they are showing significant signs of wear and tear. The adjacent bedroom to the main one we had could probably do with a permanent air con being installed, although the room is very shady and therefore doesn’t get as hot as the others. It would be a good idea to have a visitors information file in the reception area with details of busses, local restaurants etc so Alexis doesn’t have to explain it all upon arrival.
This is a grand house, filled with charms and treasures in the edge of the lovely neighborhood Santa Teresa, with spectacular views and delicious breakfast. We had a huge room and a connecting room for my mother which was very convenient. The Bed was so comfortable and everything around us unique and amazing.But above all the gift of our stay was our host Alexis who was kind and nice and helpful, always there to assist and attend and fulfill your dreams!
The place is like a fairy tale. Surrounded by trees with monkeys and birds. The room is huge and has beautiful murals. The swimming pool is great during the hot hours and after that you can sink in the hammock watching the sunset and the city light up with a cold beer in your hand. The breakfast is really really good too: fresh fruits and fruit juice, cheese, sausage, you name it. But what adds to it all is Alexis himself who goes above and beyond your regular host and sometimes that makes the whole difference. Thank you guys!!
You will not want to leave the villa so you probably won't see much of Rio ;)
Staying at Rio is amazing and one of the mostly important reason is that house!! It is difficult to describe perfectness of it. Seems like living in the museum. Beautiful decore , view , quiet location makes vacation perfect. I even did not want to go out. Delicious breakfast, very friendly and attentive staff. This is just Brazilian dream . ❤️
