I'm not very wordy:
I would recommend Villa Balthazar to a friend or relative.
My wife and I stayed there for a few days in July during the World Cup and it was lovely. Petra and Felix are excellent hosts, very attentive. They work really hard to make the stay pleasurable and they provide great recommendations for things to do in Buzios.

Stayed: July 2014, travelled as a couple

A few of our friends recommended visiting Buzios on our trip to Brazil, but we couldn't really find what we were looking for, in terms of accommodation, until that is we found Villa Balthazar.

Villa Balthazar is a relaxed pousada with the charm and style of a boutique hotel. The owners, Felix and Petra, have done an amazing job transforming this property into a contemporary pousada over the past two years. They are attentive to their guests - providing lovely little touches to everything (e.g. an amazing caipirinha welcoming drink, homemade granola at breakfast, luxury Swedish sheets, a special little anniversary treat). They really make you feel welcome and that you are at a home away from home.

The property is located just a few minutes from the Rua das Pedras where you will find plenty of restaurants and shops to occupy your time - that is of course if you are not enjoying one of the many beautiful beaches around Buzios.

I would highly recommend Villa Balthazar if you are considering a trip to Buzios!

This is an amazing place. The charming couple, Petra and Felix, will do everything to make your stay a nice and comfortable one. They sure did for us. The house decorated with very good taste and it is very easy to fell at home. Location is very good. Away from the busy streets of the city but within comfortable walking distance to the hundreds of bars, reaturants and shops in the city. Beaches are within easy reach. A perfect place for a romantice and pleasant stay.

Villa Balthazar is decorated the way you want your own house to be. Attention to details, furniture and materials that gives the house a sence of place, very cosy and still luxurious. But it is the young couple Felix and Petra that makes your stay a truly memorable one. They create a very relaxed and friendly atmosphere and help you with any questions you might have. Anything from transfers to were to get the best pizza. The location is just a short walk from the city center but far away enough to get away from the buzz of the town. We visited in low season (highly recommended) but in the Brazilian summer the small sleepy town comes alive and shoppers, beach and party people invade. Then the peaceful garden of Villa Balthazar must be a blessing. We hope to come back.

The stay at Villa Balthazar really was the perfect start on our 15 days in Buzios and Rio
Felix, Petra and Chloe really took us in and showed us a wonderful time. We enjoyed a great breakfast. a very charming chloe, (Felix and Petras Daugther) and of course the warmth of the Owners Felix and Petra. You cant ask for a better stay in Buzios. This is a must stay at place perfect for couples, friends and families. Quiet and charming, just the way we wanted it

If you are going to Brazil and Buzios, this should be your number one place to stay

If you want to live in a very cosy contest mainteining FIVE STAR hotel level, you are in the right place. Villa Balthazar is owned by a young couple Felix and Petra. They make you feel more than home, letting you be in total privacy and at the same time they are always present when needed.
Perfect taste of the owners leave you impressed by the interior design where every single detail is on the right place.
Villa has a wonderful garden with a nice small swimming pool surrounded by tropical plants. It is sooo goood coming back home and being able to relax at the pool board drinking one of the tasty coctails of Felix.
The rooms are veeeery comfortable and spacy.
The strong point of Villa Balthazar is the breakfast. Served in a classic manner of the best aristocratic tradition you find hand made bread, jam, yogurt, fresh made juice, and of course cornflakes, coffee, ect ect.
Villa Balthazar is situated 1 minute to the ocean, and from that point you can reach fantastic cuty beach hidden from the strengers eyes.
Buzios is marvelous place full of shops and different kind of restaurants and night life.
Villa Balthazar is located very well, because in couple of minutes walking you arrive to the city center, but it is also located in a manner that you are isolated from the noise of night life.

We will come back 100% !!!

Villa balthazar is a great place to stay in Buzios. Away, but only a short walk, from the busy centre.
We had a wonderfull time in villa Balthazar. The breakfast is delicious, the garden and pool are great places to relax. And the best are Petra Felix and Chloe. They help you to find out the best places in Buzios and you can ask them everything you want.
