Lonely Planet review
In a converted 1888 Victorian, the Villa Laurinda presents a serene portrait of life in Santa Teresa. At the house entrance there is a lovely pool, ringed with tropical foliage and mango trees. The rooms are simply designed with wide plank floors and range from small to large; three of the rooms share a bathroom (others are en suite).
You'll also find classically furnished common areas, including a small library with a grand piano.
Our independent authors have visited Villa Laurinda and selected this as one of our recommended accommodation in Santa Teresa & Lapa.
