Our multi-lingual hosts were charming and very helpful during our stay, providing excellent tips on restaurants, bars and sights. The property comprises five rooms spread over lush, tropical gardens in an elevated position with stunning views onto Centro. The pool area and common areas were beautiful, relaxing and very well appointed. Both our rooms were extremely comfortable and tastefully decorated to a high standard that was the equal of many high end boutique hotels we have stayed in across Europe and Asia. Claudio and Gabriel are truly passionate hosts and this shines through everything they do from the freshly baked cakes every morning to the freshly prepared juices. Gabriel even rotated the plate designs and place settings at breakfast every morning, which added a fun element to breakfast. The property is situated in Santa Teresa, which is full of stunning period properties and cool restaurants and bars. We had a great time walking around the local area and Claudio and Gabriel provided lots of great tips and made us feel really cared for. We are looking forward to our next trip to Rio and will be staying here again.

My boyfriend and I had a absolutely wonderful stay at Claudio and Gabriels Airbnb! The property is beautiful with a gorgeous tropical garden and swimming pool. Everything is very clean and taken care of. The house is located just 10 minutes by foot above Lapa. Our room was very spacious and clean as well. The room also had a little terrace with a amazing view of the center of Rio. Claudio and Gabriel are lovely hosts. Always really helpful and cheerflul. The highlightt of our stay was definitely the breackfast. Every morning Claudio and Gabriel prepared a lovely spread of fruit, cakes, cheese, cold cuts and fresh smoothies. The love and passion they put in their Airbnb was amazing and very much appreciated. Definitely recommend this Airbnb!

What a gem! We had a wonderful time either relaxing by the pool watching the monkeys or exploring the awesome surrounding Santa Teresa neighborhood. The hosts were excellent with great advice and super helpful. Paco, the incredible house pup is worth the trip on his own.

Our stay at Claudio's place was wonderful! The place itself was beautiful and surrounded by lush green plants. The rooms were clean (we stayed in two different rooms) and functional. Beds comfortable and good internet connection. The pool was great for a cool down after wondering abound the city. All the staff were extremely helpful and Claudio and Gabrielle had great suggestions on what to do and where to go. The breakfast was AMAZING! Fresh fruit and baked goods daily.... The area itself, Santa Teresa, was what we were after and just far enough from the heart of Rio to allow you to experience a different side of the city but close enough to access the main attractions. Taxis were easy to organise through Claudio so there was no issue of getting around. We highly recommend this place and would stay again.

Claudio and Gabriel are the sweetest, and most helpful Airbnb hosts. Their home is absolutely stunning and every detail of our stay was absolutely perfect. Gabriel has a wonderful eye for design and I really enjoyed all the little touches from the beautiful china our breakfast was served on to the way the towels were expertly tied with grosgrain ribbon and shells. We felt so at home (we almost dog-napped their beautiful pup Paco!) and would recommend the property to anyone.

I work as a consultant for Bed and Breakfasts and Country Inns in the U.S. and have experienced both the greatest pleasures and horrors of the hospitality industry. I am happy to say that my stay at Casa Geranio ranks highest and brightest among those experiences. Claudio and Gabriel were sensational hosts and the service they provide is what sets their property apart from the "other" Airbnbs (and most Bed and Breakfasts in the world). From a physical perspective, the property is a hidden gem. Being on site, you would be forgiven for thinking you were far from a teeming metropolis. Public spaces are beautifully decorated and maintained and lush gardens enhance the oasis of calm. Our room was clean, decorated with original artwork and was otherwise well appointed with a great view of the city that included the Metropolitan Cathedral of Saint Sebastian. The location of Casa Geranio could not have been better. Lapa is a very short walk, while Santa Teresa's "center" is a slightly longer walk up cobblestone streets. My girlfriend and I felt very safe walking to the clubs in Lapa and to dinner in Santa Teresa. Claudio and Gabriel were most helpful from the moment we made our reservation. They arranged for our pickup at the airport, made meaningful suggestions of daily activities and sites for us to visit and served a fresh and unforgettable breakfast. (Breakfast offerings changed daily, as did the place settings each morning!) At any rate, Casa Geranio is the only place I will stay if I ever make it back to Rio. I suggest you stay there too!

It is hosts like Claudio & Gabriel that make the Airbnb experience unparalleled by setting the bar so high. They offer their beyond beautiful space to guests to enjoy but it is their hospitality that blew us away. We felt like we were with long time friends who were opening their home and hearts to us. We would like to always be in touch with them and highly recommend this wonderful place to other travelers who visit Rio.
