We had high expectations of our stay and these were surpassed in every aspect. This is a wonderful home in a delightful location with great access to taxis, ubers, free tram, buses and the metro. The house is beautifully decorated with all comforts catered for. The pool and garden were lovely and our breakfasts were exceedingly generous and truly delicious. Our hosts were simply marvelous.

2 words : Amazing experience. Casa Geranio is a wonderful oasis. The suite is comfortable clean and chic. Claudio and all his team were kind, Nice and helpful with a lot of good advices. All the service is perfect. And the breakfast is an amazing brunch with home made cakes (everyday differents) smoothies, eggs, quiches, brioches, cookies. A beautiful experience, au beautiful place with Nice people. I also loved the rooftop the swimming pool, the situation in Santa Theresa and of course Paco the friendly dog. Don't change anything ! I hope we Will come back and stay longer. Jenna and Nidam from Paris.

Claudio is a great host, very friendly and reliable and also offers airport transfers. Communication was really easy with him and he also organized a taxi for us on the last day. He also is the owner of the two cutest dogs on earth. Staying at Claudios house was definitely one of the highlights during my short trip through Brazil: Very well located in Santa Teresa, close to the Bondinho Station, some museums (Parque da Ruinas) and there are also some great restaurants if you go up the hill. The house is a true gem in the neighborhood:It is even more beautiful and impressive then shown on the pictures. The view from the terrace / pool (and the room) to downtown is breathtaking. There is a little Mini-Bar close to the pool and you can also order cocktails while you relax in the pool or just watch hummingbirds flying through the garden. The breakfast is probably one of the best you can get in Rio! I could not get enough of the tropical fruit salad and the brazilian pastry. The room itself was really spacious, equipped with a super comfy bed and is very nice designed with beautiful wooden flooring and a big shower that overlooks a small garden from which you can even see some monkeys. You can reach Centro within 15 min (Lapa 5min) on foot or via the Bonde. From there you can take the metro to the beach (20-30 min). I highly recommend the place and Claudio as a host and will definitely visit next year again!

10 out of 10 points for a beautiful garden, the pool, the nice and clean appartment, the comfortable bed, the view down the city and the terrace. And as well for perfect breakfasts, caipirinhas, the warm welcome by Paco and Mel (the dogs) every evening, the cold beer and nice chats with Gabriel...and over all: Thanks for the feeling to have a "home" during my stay in Rio.
