“If the beach is your thing, this is the place to stay!”
I moved to Rio recently and top of my list of things to do was to make a trip to “famed” Buzios. I finally made it and while there stayed at this villa. When I started to look for a place appropriate for my family and friends, I was frankly a bit reluctant to rent a a villa near downtown Buzios. Buzios was already hectic when I was last there 20 odd years ago, so I knew it would be even more busy now albeit when I went last week it was in the dead of winter. (We went into town for a meal at the Porto da Barra, lovely, but the traffic and time spent just getting a few blocks made me happy that I didnt book a villa near town. And again, this was low season). So, based on a friend's recommendation who had stayed at this villa, we booked this place for the 6 of us. The location was terrific. Near Rasa, so away from the all the hustle of downtown Buzios but still near all the beaches and restaurants the Buzios area is known for - plus grocery stores, etc nearby. (Although be forewarned, you really should have a car/transport if you are planning to stay at this villa). And the specific location for this villa is really special. As it shows in the photos, you walk right out onto a nearly deserted beach that stretches kilometers in both directions. I took my 6 year old son and his dog and they were just in heaven. As was I. They could go out and play right in front of the house while I could sit nearby with a book or with my friends in the yard of the house all the while watching what was going on down on the beach. The villa itself is “rustic”. It is not a modern 5 star villa home (with the internet being the one thing most lacking). But it has that “charm” that I look for in a rental villa. The owner has obviously given a lot of thought to the decorations and art and we all felt comfortable here. Additionally, it is a large villa with lots of spaces to hang out in. This was important for us since we spent a good deal of time in-doors due to the cold. The outside yard area is also spacious and we did BBQs each of the nights we were there, under the stars, staring at the ocean in front of us. Magical! The owner has a live-in maid (Olivia) who is helpful, attentive and loads of fun. A very nice person and decent cook who helped us to feel at home and was nice to have around when needed. (Note there was an extra charge for her services.) A most enjoyable long weekend; we will be back!
Response from the owner Dear Mr Scott We are glad to hear that you, your family and friends had a good and enjoyable stay at our villa! We are in the middle of further upgrading and renovating the villa - both inside and outside - to ensure maximum comfort. Thank you for your suggestions. We are trying to get internet access soonest at our villa fully appreciating that staying connected is such an important aspect for many travelers. We hope to see you back soon! Seppo S.
My girlfriend and I stayed at this house along with another couple and it was perfect for what we were looking for our of our Buzios vacation. The house was very well kept and decorated in a very warm & inviting way. We loved being able to walk out the back right onto the beach and also being 10 minutes from the center of all the nightlife & shopping. Seppo the owner was an absolute pleasure to work with. He was very responsive to our questions before, during and even after our stay! I recommend this property if you are looking for a great balance between tranquility and accessibility. Close enough to city center to let loose but far enough to enjoy the comfort of a large space and beachfront sunsets.... Seppo also has a amazing Dalmation dog who won all of us over! Overall, A++
“Such a great place to spend a holiday”
This beautiful villa on the tranquil Rasa beach was a perfect place for a relaxing holiday. I enjoyed so much the nice garden and walking on the beach. The caretaker, Olivia, took such a good care of us and I will miss the caipirinhas and barbecue dinners she prepared for us. This is a quality villa with all the elements I value when spending a good holiday. Thank you, Seppo and thanks also to Olivia!
“great holiday hideaway at Rasa beach”
Most relaxing ambience, great villa decor, peaceful and tranquil location right on the Rasa beach just few meters from the ocean. Still conveniently located just couple of minutes from Rasa supermarkets and services and some 15 minutes from Buzios historical centre. Excellent and warm villa caretaker service, which made our holidays. We enjoyed both her cooking and caipirinhas. Felt like a real home, not like a rental property.
“Hermosa casa, sobre la playa, enorme y cómoda”
Fuimos con parte de mi familia, éramos mi mujer, mis 2 hijos, mi madre y mi hermana. Aún así la casa nos quedaba grande... súper cómoda! 3 habitaciones grandes, todas con un baño, un living / comedor / sala de estar gigante! galería y jardín y abriendo una puerta de madera la playa!! el lugar está excelentemente decorado, con objetos de distintos lugares del mundo. el lugar es alejado del ruido, ideal para familias que buscan tranquilidad pero estar cerca del centro de Buzios. Tiene a 2 minutos de auto mercados, farmacias, etc. Un párrafo aparte para Olivia y Sebastián, los caseros. La atención y la hospitalidad son formidables! Atentos a todas las necesidades que tuviéramos, buenas recomendaciones. Unas excelentes vacaciones!
Seppo`s beautiful sofisticated and very lovely villa was fantastic. The location by the sea,villas beautiful garden and Olivia`s cooking was really nice. I warmly recommend this villa!
Estuve 3 dias en esta casa y es espectacular, excelentes instalaciones, una vista al mar increible que no se encuentra en ninguna otra parte de Buzios por este precio y Seppo es una persona muy correcta y cumplidora. Para mi próximo viaje nuevamente la alquilaria. Muy completa. Gracias Seppo la pasamos super bien con mi familia. Cristian Yermanos Bogotá D.C. - Colombia
we stayed in this wonderful villa on September 2012. We enjoyed every minute of our stay. It is a spacious, well decorated beautiful house. Just on rasa beach (you open a small gate on the garden and you are stepping on the sand!) Located in a quiet neighborhood. With a nice garden, barbecue, and sauna! You also have the chance of hiring the service for cooking and cleaning of the nicest lady we met in Brazil (Olivia) I totally recommend this house.
“Didn't want to leave!”
My parents and I stayed at this house for 4 days and we fell in love with it! The house is decorated with bits and pieces from around the world so we felt right at home :) It's spacious, great garden friendly housekeeper, sweet guard dog, and right on the beach! We wished we could have taken more advantage of the house and spent more time in it, it's garden and it's practically private beach, but there are so many beautiful beaches in Buzios that we could not resist going to as many as possible. What we did not enjoy were the mosquitoes and all the bugs (bring products!), some nets on the windows would be nice so we could enjoy the lovely night temperatures without unexpected visitors, at least in the rooms, but I guess it's part of the local fauna. Also we terribly missed having internet access!
Response from the owner 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
“Hanging out at the Villa on the ocean in Buzios”
The Villa was perfect for Brazil. It was a beautifully furnished home with a helpful caretaker. The sauna was nice to hang out and the interior of the villa was like a art museum. I cooked every night and had fresh fish and produce from the locals. It only took a few days to get the routine of hanging out at the beaches and local shops during the day and the villa in the evening.
