Cachoeira Inn
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 18 January 2014

We absolutely loved our stay at Cachoeira Inn and it easily gets our vote for favorite romantic beach getaway in Brazil. First, Buzios is tops in Brazil for combining great beaches with a lively town, nightlife and restaurants. The view at Cachoeira Inn is stunning, the inn is exceptionally well-maintained and you have great access to the best beaches. The Inn is small format, so guests can have as much privacy as they want (plunge pools with lounge area may outnumber guest rooms!). But the social areas are great too and come with the extremely warm and charming company of innkeepers, Matt and Susan. As a resident of Brazil for 4 years and 20+ as a visitor, we have grown accustomed to paying sky high prices for mediocre accommodation. At Cachoeira Inn, you genuinely get the luxury, privacy and experience for which you are paying. We could not recommend this place more enthusiastically!

If you are looking for an absolutely stunningly beautiful place to stay with the most welcoming and hospitable hosts (Susan and Matt) you can imagine, then Cachoeira Inn is the place for you. My husband and I spent the final 4 days of our honeymoon at Cachoeira Inn and we couldn't have hoped for a more special or romantic place to stay to wrap up our trip. From the memorable New Year's Eve celebration which included an authentic Brazilian dinner and then watching the fireworks from their deck, to the superb dinner recommendations and help planning our days' activities, Matt and Susan made sure that our stay was incredibly special. This is one place that we will be returning to as soon as we can make it back to Brazil!

We just had to wait a (long) while before writing up our review, just to keep us from booking a new stay immediately while writing it up. I have been traveling to Brazil more or less bi- monthly since mid 2010, and when my wife and I had the opportunity to travel together we did not get far in Brazil. We arrived at Cachoeira Inn, decided to prolong our stay if possible, and stayed until it was time to leave for the Airport.
Susan and Matt are excellent hosts, and their place is just amazing (even when it rains).
What you see on the pictures, is what you get. It looks great, and the service and ambience are even better.

We will definitely re-visit.

My wife and I visited for 5 days and 4 nights in October and our visit was fantastic. We stayed in the Rhine Suite and it was beautiful. It is rare to find a place in Brazil or anywhere in S. America that pays attention to details like Susan and Matt does at the Cachoeira Inn. Everything from a personal telephone call confirming the reservation to their personal welcome and Caipirinha drink when we arrived, to little things like bathroom fixtures that are tight and properly installed and the many textiles, tile, stone and wood the inn is decorated in. The breakfast was delicious with eggs cooked to order and the cheese pastries that are the best in Brazil (and we tried them everywhere). Susan arranged a driver to pick us up from Rio Intl airport without any problems. The driver was super friendly and even stopped on the way to buy us a German chocolate treat. While we were in Buzios, Susan suggested a private boat tour of the beaches which was the highlight of our stay and a couple restaurants that were delicious. The property is unique and beautiful. It's located on the water and you can hear the waves crash along the cove and every night we sat back and my wife and I enjoyed the beautiful sunset from a different private cozy location. I initially booked Casas Brancas but cancelled the reservation after I discovered the Cachoeira Inn. This place only has 4 rooms and is booked far in advance so contact Susan as soon as possible to enjoy this tropical paradise.

My husband and I honeymooned in South America for six weeks July-August 2013. We wanted somewhere luxurious to finish off our trip and Cachoeira Inn was the perfect choice! Susan and Matt made us feel so welcome and were such wonderful hosts, even bringing homemade cookies to us on our last day! And they make a great caipirinha too! Nothing is too much trouble for Susan and Matt, they organised our transfers to and from Rio, suggested wonderful beaches for us to check out, and the private boat tour that they recommended and organised was a real highlight of our stay in Buzios. Cachoeira Inn is paradise with so many individual areas to sit and relax by a pool feeling totally isolated from the rest of the world. There is also the opportunity to canoe and snorkel from their private beach access. We cannot recommend Cachoeira Inn enough, the photos do not do it justice! We did not want to leave and we certainly hope to get back there one day.

If you are debating to go to Cachoeira Inn, I hope our review will convince you to make the best decision of your life.

Cachoeira Inn is the gem of Buzios, the hospitality you receive by the entire team, especially Susan and Matt, is something we have never experienced in our lives. We have traveled to many different places around the world and the one on one treatment you receive is like visiting family. Their home is beautiful, right off a cliff that is facing the ocean! The food is amazing and healthy, plus they can make one hell of a capharina! We stayed in Sept for our honeymoon and highly recommend it to anyone who wants to take a trip of their lifetime. We created a virtual tour and have shown all our family and friends. As there are 4 suites in the Inn you truly feel like its your own home during the stay. We are planning to come back in 5 years to celebrate our anniversary with family and friends by booking the entire house. Overall, if you have found this establish, I wouldn't look further, as Cachoeira Inn is the gem of our 2 week stay in Brazil, Rio and the hotel we stayed couldn't compare!

Thanks so much Matt and Susan we had the time of our lives and we will see you soon!!

Love always,
Laila and Matt Srigley

I spent four nights at this lovely inn and loved my visit! Matt and Susan are gracious hosts and they have a great staff! My suite was delightful and the daily breakfast was fabulous! The pools and waterfalls throughout the property are magical and the decor of the inn is beautiful. The town of Buzios is charming with great shops and restaurants!
