Your place is just perfect.. Amazing garden and amazing house! We will come back!!
And thank you so much for your help.
When visiting Rio, it is a must to spend time in Santa Teresa- interesting, restaurant and bar filled neighborhood with lovely old buildings. And the perfect location here is the beautiful, art-filled, romantic guesthouse of Ana and Benoit. We stayed for 5 days in the Tree Loft. After a day of exploring fabulous Rio, to return to the garden splendor and and wonderful views over the city was a little bit of paradise. Sure, the faucet was a little leaky at times, and the kitchen wasn't great, but it didn't seem to matter. Ana, our lovely host was welcoming and helpful.
Ana and Benoit are very nice. We came at a busy time and Ana was incredibly responsive to whatever we needed. We had a great stay during carnival and wish Ana and Benoit the best~
We stayed at Cottage chique in Santa Teresa. Ana and Benoit have one of the coolest places we have ever seen!!!
Their backyard (filled with trees, a swimming pool, monkeys in the trees and a great patio overlooks Centro and I honestly can't imagine a better backyard in a major city.
The place itself is clean and very unique. Great for a couple (romantic getaway). Keep in mind there is no A/C but with the fans and windows open it is not too hot.
Ana and Benoit are very helpful, nice people and live next door which makes things easier.
Highly recommended, especially for Carnival or if you want a less touristy getaway with great food spots and bars within walking distance. It is great if you want a community feel.
It is tough to get taxis over there, so we recommend using Easy Taxi. Although it wasn't working well for us during Carnival.

Our first visit to Brazil, with Ben and Anna by far the nicest people we met in Rio, in genuine district of Santa Teresa and "perfect" :) place to stay with an unforgetable atmosphere
hahah, look at the profile picture! The beast and ...... the other beast ... thanks for staying with us, Spyke will miss u, i am sure. B.
Ana and Ben were lovely hosts! The property was just like in the photos and in a perfect little neighborhood. There was a corner store about 1 minute away to buy water etc, and about 3 minutes down the street was a fun watering hole where locals congregate in the evening.
Oh and the view from this place is absolutely unbeatable! I would definitely recommend.
A word of caution, the place is a bit difficult to find (our taxi drivers had a hard time)... but once you know where it is, it instantly feels like home.
This place was worth every penny.
What an incredible set up. Exterior: gorgeous views of the colonial buildings and the Cristo. Interior: esoteric design books, beautiful stone and wood, perfectly distressed furniture. It's a 2 minute walk from my favorite bar in the world. 10 minute walk down the hill to Lapa. I partied with artists, musicians, anthropologists, and Indian chieftains. Santa Teresa is the place and this is Santa Teresa with your own pool.
Magnifique endroit, très bien placé dans un quartier très sympathique,, calme et facilement accessible (bus, moto taxi)
Très bon accueil , petite maison très agréable, très bien aménagée avec beaucoup de goût, sans tape à l'oeil au milieu de la végétation, piscine et terrasse avec vues panoramiques sur le centre de Rio
J'ai passé une semaine là et c'était dans les meilleures conditions
Je recommande chaudement
Merci Pierre sera toujours le bienvenu ici à GuestHouse. J'espère le voir bientôt!!

That's how life goes. You know someone, who knows someone and this someone knows someone else.
And here am I with Ana and Ben.
Ana and Ben are really hospitable in a special caring way! Things you need or information you don't even know that they might be necessary for you- Ana and Ben will know and assist you!
The places they own are far away from any describable words.
If Rio or Bahia, these enchanting couple with there lucky, happy and engaging ( in an absolut positive way!) son know who to live life!
Here's to life!
Here's to love!
Here's to you!
I met Ana & Benoit at airbnb and I haven't left since then. They are very nice people, very warm and welcoming and I feel like they are my family.. Their home is an living art peace. If you are a guest, you will live in a community of nice people, lots of trees, fruits and animals. A real beautiful experience..
I know Ben since 2008 when I first spend my marvelous year in his awesome place, and sweet Ana since a bit later. True people. Currently, I am living again in this tropical oasis in the middle of Rio's bohemian quarter, Santa Teresa. In the meantime this oasis had grown up with its new lofts, common places and a pool! If you like nature, tranquility, handicraft and Rio(!), this is your definite place to be - and play chess!
This is a dream guest house - chic, bohemian, understated, with family touch run by Ben and Ana, and their young son. Interesting touches architecturally (historical preservation project). Home decorated in part with art from Ben's world travels. In coolest part of Rio, it attracts off-the-beaten path clientele. Belgian Ben and Rio- native Ana will recommend the best of Rio and much of Brazil. Ben knows how to eat well, so ask for restaurant recommendations. Hey, it's Rio - they have large dogs.
Gorgeous spot in one of the nicest neighborhoods in Rio. Spectacular setting, great views and close to the best spots in Santa Teresa. Ana and Ben have created a beautiful environment and are terrific hosts. Thoroughly recommend the Guest House!
Ana & Ben have a piece of paradise on earth! I would stay there forever if I could! Every single little detail from the houses (and I have been in all of them); are just amazing. I recommend to anyone traveling to Rio if you want to have a unique experience; their place is definitely the one!
A great place to stay on one of the best locations in Rio de Janeiro. The B&B is decorated in a lovely style with great eye for detail. View is beautifull and everything is really comfortable ! I would highly recommend this place to get the real Rio vibe.
In the world's most exciting city, this is the place for leaving the samba on the doorstep at night (or in Bar do Mineiro around the corner) and wake up with great coffee and a ditto view in the morning. Your landlord's lust for life is not a gimmick. It's (completely harmless, don't worry, but) real... as can - among many other instances - be tasted in the heartbeat of his guesthouse's aesthetics. (As for his banana plants, however, I've seen more impressive specimens near Brussels!;) Enjoy!
Ben and Ana are the perfect hosts, extremely providing and caring for me and my wife every time we come to visit. The Eagle's nest (Guesthouse Rio) is my preferred resting and hideaway place in Beautiful Rio De Janeiro.
I've known Ben for many years. He's been everywhere and seen many things...and has settled in Rio where he and Ana have set up a charming guesthouse. It's located in Santa Teresa, a bohemian hilltop colonial neighbourhood. Access to other parts of Rio is easy. The guesthouse is well appointed and rustic, and dominated with earthy colours and vegetation. It commands great views of the city. If you're looking to kick back, chill out, and get back to nature, this place is for you.
