Host Review Score

Casa Geranio was built around 1910 by a Portuguese family, it has a big garden and a very nice outside aea. It is located in Santa Teresa which is a unique area of Rio de Janeiro. The house is just 10 minutes walking to the city center and 5 minutes walking to Lapa.
We like travelling, arts & design ( exploring Rio´s city center ), nature, new cultures.
Santa Teresa is one of the oldest parts of Rio which it maintains its original characteristics...colonial houses, the little tram ( now is back to service) and cobblestones laid streets. Santa Teresa offers a selection of good restaurants and bars.
