What a fantastic start to our trip in south America. The place is hard to find as off beaten track so ensure you get directions from bill before you arrive, but once you do...
Bill and Sue can't do enough for you. So helpful and friendly.
Our room was incredible. Great views, loads of space, very clean.
The pool is awesome, clean and overlooking the city and a welcome respite from the heat.
The breakfast was lovely, taken on the terrace in the sunshine.
The area of Santa Teresa is gorgeous. Hilly, cobbled streets that are quiet and tranquil. You have to take a taxi or walk anywhere at the moment as due to a fatal crash a couple of months ago the trams have been suspended.
Great location to visit Lapa (try to go on a Saturday night...local samba nights are very special) and elsewhere in the city.
Overall we would definitely go back and suggest anyone visiting rio gives this place a go...

If you want to stay away from the crazy crowd of Rio, this is a nice choice. You can have breakfast with monkeys :) Bill is a great host. Still miss his coffee. But don't miss Rio at all.

My partner Robert and I stayed at Bill and Sue's lovely B&B on our recent trip to Rio and could not have been more happy with our choice. The house is lovely, the views are amazing and we truly adored the pool overlooking the city. Santa Teresa is a charming area away from the hustle and typical touristy clutter. I suppose some may think the hike up the hill daunting, but we enjoyed it and walked almost exclusively day and night.
Sadly the trolley was no longer operating due to a fatal accident some months ago. But even Lapa is still an easily walkable distance.
I was happy that I had the opportunity to see the little monkeys too. Apparently they are less likely to visit in late summer as there is plenty of food available for them in the rainforest. But Bill was kind enough to supply me with their favorite overripe bananas, that tempted them to visit us.
Thank you Bill and Sue for your kind hospitality. Your home is lovely and we hope to visit again soon.

We arrived late at night as flight was delayed to warm welcome from Bill. Big relief and the hospitality only got better. Room spaciuos light and cool with wonderful views of Rio. Lots of running hot water and all spotlessly clean. Swimming pool in tropical garden and delicious breakfastson the patio. Highly recommend

If you are staying in Rio this is the place to stay, great views over the city, lovely rooms and the English owners Bill & Sue so helpfull with, advice on what to see and the best way to do it.
If I ever get to Rio again this is where I want to stay.

Room Tip: We had a room on the top floor overlooking the city and I think all rooms face that way.
