    Located at the highest point of Buzios, this home has a most wonderful view of sunset in Buzios. With decor and furniture tastefully, the house is very beautiful and great for cooking with friends / family. Ana is extremely helpful and polite, she answered me whenever I needed with great agility. Rose (cleaner) was very helpful and lives in a house in the grounds of the main house, which is great for any issues or help. The only thing you should take into consideration is that this house has lots of stairs (this is a problem for people with poor mobility or disabilities) and not walk distance from the beach, which will force you to always have to take the car to go city ​​or two nearby beaches (Ferradurinha and Geribá). It's a great house to relax and rest. I had incredible moments with my family in this house. I high recommend.

    We spent 8 nights at Ana's beautiful home in Buzios and were not disappointed. The views are spectacular and the home is very comfortable. Ana was very responsive to any of our questions and helpful with local tips on restaurants and beaches. Rose who lives on the property was wonderful as well. We would recommend this place to anyone who wants a quite and secluded getaway.

    Excellent home atop the hills of Buzios with outstanding views. Very quaint location away from the hassles of city living for our group of friends. Many thanks to Ana for assisting us in numerous ways. Much appreciation also goes towards the property care taker, Rose, who shipped my forgotten shoes back to SP in time before my flight!
