“gorgeous villa and fab views”
Reviewed 8 April 2013 for a stay in March 2013
2
people found this review helpful

huge villa - loads of room for everyone - big bedrooms all ensuite. Only downside is that as is a self catering accommodation would expect a bit more in the kitchen - eg a kettle! As brits we like to make tea etc and this could only be done by boiling water on the stove - quite hot when weather hot too! Also there aren't any proper food shops open late that we could find to buy stuff - so if you are arriving after 5pm or at weekend (as we did) suggest you get stuff en route (eg water/milk/bread etc). Takes 15-20 minutes to walk into town but suggest taxi back up steep hills as villa is high up and is a mighty walk! The nearest beach was not so nice - you are expected to pay just to sit on your own towel - very annoying - but ones a little further away (over rocks) are quieter and you don't have bar owners/cafe owners hassling you to buy drinks or lunch. Suggest getting the fresh coconut from the beach sellers though - at 8 reis is a must - although bit more expensive than in other areas. Pool at villa lovely - and plenty of room for sunbathing.
would not recommend bringing children aged under about 12 as the fence around pool is quite open - also windows in villa are very big and very low. Not suitable for people with mobility problems or elderly as villa has many steps.

“Idyllic spot”
Reviewed 24 August 2012 for a stay in August 2012

Three of us stayed here for a week at the end of our travels round Brazil. What a beautiful property with such amazing views from every room. As a previous reviewer said, exactly
Iike the photos, with no disappointments. The perfect place to kick back and enjoy some R&R. An easy downhill walk to local beaches - but get a taxi back up! Alejandro, the local manager is really helpful as is Jan, the owner. Would definitely come back if (when) we return to Brazil. Cannot recommend highly enough! Thank you.

“Exactly like the Pictures, Stunning Views, Excellent Service”
Reviewed 13 February 2012 for a stay in January 2012

I stayed here with friends for a week just after New Year in Rio, we wanted to relax after a hectic New Year. The villa is just as the pictures show, its very big and luxurious and the views are second to none, amazing panoramic views from every room and wall to wall windows which slide back in the living room.

We had a fantastic service from Alejandro who looked after our every need and whom we could call any time for help or just to recommend and book restaurants/day trips. The pool is shared with a few other villas on a private plot of land but this did not effect us so much as we intended to be out much of the time and no one else was staying in most of the villas anyway. the pool is also a very good size with amazing views.

Unfortunately the weather let it down for us (which was highly unusual for that time of year) but we did see the beaches using the famous dune buggies (excelllent fun) and had one glorious day on the beach with cocktails and fresh barbecued fish at JOÃO FERNANDES beach, walking distance from the villa but a hike up steep hill. Taxis are easy and plentiful from to and from town, around15 real back to the villa and Buzios town is beautiful with lots of shops and bars and lovely quaint cobbled streets. You shouls also do the day trip boat ride but get the one with the water shute.

We had Wi Fi but it was terribly slow and temperamental. I think in this part of Brazil I'm told thats just the way it is. We also had our own guard at the entrance to the private lot who could even organise shopping for us.

Thoroughly recommend the Villa and Buzios

“Could not have been better!”
Reviewed 15 May 2011 for a stay in April 2011

person found this review helpful

My husband and I stayed at the casa vista azul for one week in April 2011 with my parents. It was an amazing experience. My only regret is that we did not stay longer. The house is a gem and the views are breathtaking. It was nice to be a bit outside of the touristy town and we were able to enjoy our time at our own pace. Especially given the high prices of Buzios restaurants, we also liked having the kitchen so that we could cook some nights. The owners and property managers provited top knotch service and good recommendations. We can't wait to go back!! Highly recommended.

“Wonderful Views”
Reviewed 23 February 2011 for a stay in November 2010

person found this review helpful

My family and friends rented this magnificent house over Thanksgiving week. Our friends are locals, which made everything a lot easier for us. They took us to every beach around the area, all different and beautiful. We shopped, swam, sunbathed. The area is great, seemed pretty safe. The house is large, airy, rooms feel private (lots of stairs, just FYI for toddlers and disabled). Would love to go again. And we got the maid service, who showed up every morning with fresh bread and stayed until we returned from the beach: dinner was ready and everything was cleaned, she even did the laundry! Now that's luxury! We loved it.

“What a fantastic place!”
Reviewed 12 February 2011 for a stay in September 2010

We stayed for two weeks with my parents and two teenage boys. From the photos my expectations were pretty high but I was still blown away by the beauty of the place. The villa itself is fantastic but the views from each and every room in the villa were just unreal. I almost felt like I was not worthy but soon it made me so relaxed that I forgot all about the stress at home.
The manager was very pleasant and helped us rent a vehicle on recommendation from the owner. I am glad we did as Buzios has so much to offer all over the peninsula. It is definitely the best family resort we have ever visited as my parents loved the cozy town, I enjoyed the great dining, my wife the shopping while the teens were quick to take on a new identity as “surfers”! The surf lessons were great except they were almost impossible to drag off the beach!
The town feels very safe and on top we even had full time guard service. I spent some of the most relaxing days of my life at the pool and all in all it just felt like a much more expensive place! I can truly recommend this and in fact I speak for the entire family when I say we can’t wait to go back!

Thank you for your review. We are pleased to learn that you had a good time. Still we try to improve the villa in all aspects. Recently we have invested in new bed clothes, nice first class towels, 10 new loungers, the villa has been painted outside and inside recently. More to come. Best regards Jan
