We stayed with Claudio and Gabriel for 5 nights at the end of our 2 week honeymoon in Argentina and Brazil. From the moment we arrived at Casa Geranio we felt at home.
The house is a beautifully restored property in the bohemian suburb of Santa Teresa, a 20 minute taxi ride from the more touristy Copacabana and Ipanema, with gorgeous views over the city of Rio. It was a wonderful peaceful haven to return to after each day's sightseeing.
The rooms, pool and communal areas are immaculate and the breakfasts a-ma-zing!
Claudio recommended a number of outstanding restaurants in Lapa and beyond which would count towards some of our favourite meals.
All in all one of my favourite holiday accommodations so far! Thank you so much for a marvellous stay!
Love love this place! It's in a great neighbourhood in an amazing city. Claudio and Gabriel have done a wonderful job of renovating this beautiful historic home. It is so tastefully decorated in every way. The outside spaces are wonderfully lush and inviting to sit around in, whether in the outdoor "living room" or by the infinity pool overlooking the city below. An oasis in this very exciting city.
Another reason to stay here is the outstanding breakfast prepared and served by the hosts. Delicious home baked sweet and savory goodies, fresh fruit smoothies and much more are brought out to guests in a magazine worthy presentation everyday. Wow!
There aren't enough words of praise for Claudio and Gabriel and their world class hospitality. They go above and beyond in every respect as hosts. Their staff is also lovely and very professional. Such a pleasure to stay here and get to know them. We would come back in a flash! Thank you Claudio and Gabriel. Um grande abraço!
Such a fabulous place to stay in Rio - location, comfort, style, breakfast and above all the hosts Claudio and Gabriel all fabulous! We feel so lucky to have been able to stay with them - a truly wonderful start to our holiday. Many thanks guys! Hope to see you again in Rio or London
One of the best hospitality experiences I've had and a stay that I wish was longer. A very stylishly renovated building in local character located in a charming bohemian section of Rio.
Claudio and Gabrielle were very generous hosts; their local knowledge is invaluable; I went to a number of places they recommended. All fabulous.
Friendly, respectful and went out of their way to help. A privilege to stay with them.
Wir hatten das große Vergnügen, 10 wundervolle Tage bei Claudio und Gabriel in ihrer liebevoll restaurierten Villa in Santa Teresa in Rio zu verbringen. Das Haus ist eine Oase der Ruhe, verkehrsgünstig gelegen und geschmackvoll eingerichtet. Wir haben uns hier zu jeder Zeit wohl gefühlt, es hat uns an nichts gefehlt. Claudio und Gabriel waren liebevolle und zuvorkommende Gastgeber, die uns jeden Wunsch von den Lippen abgelesen haben. Komplettiert wurde das perfekte Team von den beiden Hunden Paco und Mel, die wir sofort in unsere Herzen eingeschlossen haben. Für uns ist die Casa Geranio die erste Adresse in Rio. Wir kommen gerne wieder.
Amazing. One of the most phenomenal guest experiences I've had to date. Supremely better than any hotel experience could have been. Situated right above the nighlife of lapa and right below the beauitful neighborhood of Santa Theresa, you're in a great location if you choose to even leave. Claudio and Gabriel are incredibly warm, friendly, helpful, and go out of their way to make your stay a great one. The place is this beautiful old portuguese house they've touched up and it was hard for me to leave and explore because the outdoor pool with a view of the city and the outdoor sitting lounge were hard to get away from. Even the shower and bedroom were awesome. Clean and tastefully done, I loved this place!
