PROS: Quiet isolated beach, property is right on the beach, suana was nice, and the house is charming.

CONS: A long drive to downtown Buzios, churrasco is nice but it is located right next to a bird/chicken coop and a dog crate so the animal smells are VERY unpleasant especially near food that you cook on the churrasco. Rooster crows early in the morning which made me want to cook it and a crated dog barked at kids running around. Housekeeping services were good but make sure you are very clear as to the expected hours of services for the daily rate. Cooking just ok. The caretakers live ON the property in seperate quarters, and breed chickens, birds, etc. So, you rent the large house but not the entire property - which is shared with the caretakers. Their house is ten feet from the back door of the main house.

If you can live with the above, the house is very clean and well kept. The beach is extremely quiet and secluded - so if you don't want to be close to downtown Buzios and that scene, this place would be perfect. If you would rather be close to downtown and be able to go to restaurants ans bars and stumble back home, look for other options. Praia Rasa is on the windy side of Buzios, so if the wind kicks up, the water gets a little murkey. High tide of this particular beach - there is no beach. However, the nice thing about the property is that you can open up the back gate and step into the ocean.

Dear John Morris

We appreciate taking your time to review our property. We also would like to thank you for the earlier, kind emails to me in which you wrote that "the villa is great" and that "Olivia (our maid) has been great".

We provide two grill areas. A smaller grill behind the kitchen and an older grill area behind the caretaker house, which was just recently renovated. So you have two grill areas to choose from.

We do have singing birds, chicken, parrots, which for most quests are a delight, as we have occasionally fresh complimentary eggs to be given to our quests. We are sorry, if the smell of the birds caused you disturbance. Our ad clearly mentions the birds.

Our villa has an exclusive and a private location right on the beach. There are several quests, who do not want to stay at the center of Búzios due to the terrible traffic jams during high season, noise from discos, bars etc. Thus we provide an option: a hideaway. Some people prefer to wake up to the sounds of braking waves rather than to the traffic noise or loud music. Still the center is just 10 minutes by car and the nearest supermarket 2 minutes.

We don´t expect our quests to water and clean the garden, feed our birds, empty the trash or open and close the gate. Thus we have a villa caretaker couple to take care of all this, which for most people is an asset. Needless to say, they are also there for security reasons. For a private house in Búzios, this is a must. We clearly mention this in our ad.

As Búzios is a peninsula, and the wind changes daily, always one side is windy, the other one calmer. However, Rasa beach is much safer, particularly to children, than, for example Geribá, which has occasionally very strong and dangerous undercurrents.

Hi Raquel

I am glad to hear you had a good stay and we truly hope you will come back one day!

All rooms are provided with mosquito screens, which quests need to put in place, if they open the windows. Also as we are in the middle of the nature, we have small bugs, like tiny ants. That´s why we encourage quests never to leave food on the table, kitchen etc, and use the maid service.

The villa is rented on self catering basis, and mosquito sprays are available in all supermarkets (we usually keep some first aid stock),

Best regards, Seppo
