“Great unit, complex and location”
We cant recommend this holiday destination enough. We are from Australia and had toured with the rigours of the world cup, and were badly in need of some relax time. We got that and more. The unit is totally self contained and more, its really a modern, trendy quirky home from home. The complex itself has all the facilities you need with pool and sauna. The location was perfect for us also. In walking distance of beaches both sides of the peninsula and bars and restaurants. Its a short trip in the local R2.50 taxi vans to the town centre. We fell in love with Buzios. The owners made us feel so welcome we felt part of the family. 10 out of 10.
Response from the owner Dear Lesley & Shaun, Thank you so very much for your review. You are wonderful people and it was a real pleasure to have you all here at the lOfT. I´m very pleased you all liked your stay at the lOfT and felt party of the family. It is nice to read also you felt in love with our beautiful city of Búzios. Please feel free to come back any time you want. The house is yours. My very best to you and your family. Sincerely, Chris
“A relaxing and comfortable family apartment.”
When arriving at the Loft, Chris received us with warmth and friendliness. The apartment itself is comfortable, well furnished and well equipped. It is located in a condominium at the beginning of Manguinhos beach and access to Buzios town centre is relatively easy, if you have a car. The condominium has a sauna and a swimming pool. I would recommend this apartment for couples with children.
Response from the owner Dear David and family, Thank you for yor comments. The acess to anywhere in town is very easy due to the mini-van service 24/7 right in front of the complex, if you don´t have a car. Sincerely, Chris
“Great place, great location and fantastic host/Ótimo local, loca”
The lOft was the highlight of our stay in Brazil. Not only is it well furnished, very clean and charming, the owner was a fantastic host . The lOfts location is excellent, very close to Manguinhos beach and Geribá, as well as being close to nice commercial areas with good restaurants and supermarkets. O lOft foi o ponto alto de nossa viagem ao Brasil. Além de ser super-bem montado, bem limpo e acolhedor, o proprietário não poderia ter sido um melhor anfitrião. A localização também é muito boa, bem próxima a praia de Manguinhos e Geribá, além de vários pontos comerciais bons, com ótimos restaurantes e supermercado.
Response from the owner Dear Isabella & Hogne, Thank you very much for your comments and compliments. You are very kind. I´m more than happy to read that you all had a great time while in Búzios and at the lOfT. It was a pleasure to meet you all and hope to lodge you again in a near future. Sincerely, Chris
Tive uma experiência inesquecível, o Loft é exatamente o que vemos no Tour 360 graus. Muito bem localizado, limpo e aconchegante. Pretendo voltar mais vezes para está cidade, Búzios é realmente encantadora. Christiano, sem palavras, foi muito solicito em tudo que precisamos.
Response from the owner Prezada Fernanda, Obrigado pelos seus comentários. Abraços. Atenciosamente Christiano
“Chic, comfortable and excellent value for money”
We stayed two weeks in this charming loft apartment. Chris, the owner is fantastic. He greeted us on our arrival, showing us around the apartment. He also recommended restaurants and a place where we could hire a car. Unfortunately whilst we were on the beach, a beach umbrella hit my husband, splitting his head open. The restaurant owner tried to summon an ambulance but it was Chris and his wife, who contacted the emergency services and ensured that we got an ambulance quickly. The public hospital was very efficient and excellent and the service was free! Both Chris and his wife came round later that evening to ensure that we were OK. Chris took us back to the hospital to have the stitches removed. Chris´s caring attitude and help was exceptional and we can´t commend him more highly for all the trouble he took to look after my husband. The apartment itself is attractively furnished,very comfortable and spotlessly clean. There is a small kitchenette, which has a two ring gas burner, a large fridge freezer and a breakfast bar. It is well equipped, so we were able to cook a few meals in. There is also an excellent supermarket right next door. The lounge area has a comfortable settee which converts into an extra double bed. The main double bed is on a mezzanine floor, accessed by a spiral staircase and forms a very attractive bedroom, with an en-suite shower room, with an excellent large shower. There is also an additional shower room on the ground floor - very useful. The apartment has a/C, ceiling fan and mosquito nets on all the windows. The attention to details shown by the owner, Chris, is commendable - he has thought of everything! There is also an attractive private terrace at the back of the apartment which has a table and chairs and also a settee and two armchairs. The apartment is well situated, with buses stopping right outside, providing access to Centro and Ossos. I would however recommend hiring a car for access to some of the remoter beaches.
Response from the owner Dear Sue & Alan, Thank you so very much for your kind review and compliments. You are a such lovely couple. I feel a sense of accomplishment when I receive and read a review like yours. Every single detail at the lOfT was thought with lots of love, care and attention and you captured that. Thank you! I´m happy also you and Alan had a great time while at Búzios regardless of the little problem with the umbrella at the beach. Sincerely hope you may be back in a near future for new tropical adventures in Búzios and at the lOfT!!! Warmest regards, Chris
The apartment is a little gem with all the amenities you need. There's a beach within minutes of the apartment and local taxis take you downtown for 2 reias. In addition to the nice apartment, Chris the owner really takes care of you. Our little daughter became ill during our stay and Chris drove us to a hospital late one night, acted as a translator, and then took us home.
Response from the owner Dear Marnie & Brian, Thank you very much for your review and compliment. You are a very nice family. I´m glad you liked the lOfT and had awesome vacations! Please come back any time you want!! Sincerely, Chris
“Lovely week in Buzios.”
Having been in Rio for the previous week, we had arranged with Chris to stay in the Loft for our second week in Brazil. Chris was very welcoming and answered all questions on arrival. The Loft is very well planned with space utilised and care has been taken to make it full of home comforts. The access to the beach is easy, as is access to the centre of Buzios. We hired a buggy for ease and a bit of fun, making it possible to venture to all beaches, I would recommend this if you get a chance. Our two children had a good time using the play room and swimming pool. A great stay for all.
Response from the owner Dear Paula & Neil, Thank you so very much for your comments. I´m very pleased to read you all had a great time whilst at the lOfT and Búzios. Please feel free to come back at anytime! My best! Chris
We had an excellent 4-day stay at late May. The room is clean and tastefully decorated. It is in a gated community and we felt very safe. The location is not near downtown area but it is very convenient to take the bus. The owner Chris was very helpful in arranging the trip and tried his best to accommodate our requests.
Response from the owner Dear Dayou, Thank very much for your review. I´m truly happy you and your family enjoyed your stay at the lOfT and Búzios. Please come back at any time. My best! Sincerely, Chris
“beautiful and relaxing stay in Buzios”
lOfT is exactly as beautiful in person as it is in pictures. Chris was so friendly and helpful with anything we needed or had questions about it. The space is simply gorgeous, and we felt very safe. It is conveniently located near one of the most fun beaches in Buzios (Geriba), but close to many of the beaches, if you like something more private. Be aware that wifi only works when you are outside, but the back patio is gorgeous, so it isn't so bad to be forced out there to check email and such. It may be inconvenient for people who need to constant access to the internet, but hopefully while you're in Buzios, you can enjoy the beautiful area and not be tied to e-mails and work! Also, we visited during the low season, so the bakery others have mentioned was very convenient for us - they open early and stay open late! I would definitely recommend lOfT to anyone visiting Buzios.
Response from the owner Dear Jasmine And Kelvin, Thank you very much for your comments. I sincerely hope you had a wonderful time while in Búzios and at the lOfT. It was a pleasure to have you both down here! I´m striving to have good internet at the lOfT but like I said often is not in my hands to control it. My best. Chris
Me friend and I were traveling on a budget and wanted to experience Buzios without breaking the bank. This rental was economical and better than expected in terms of quality and comfort. The owner, Chris, was extremely helpful from the moment we inquired about the rental. He e-mailed us high quality pics, details about booking and an exhaustive list of travel options from Rio. He also met us at the rental and gave us a tour of the whole facility which included a pool, sauna, free secured parking and a security desk that is staffed at night. The compound is walled and gated and next door (literally) to a shopping center that has a coffee shop, bakery and a host of other useful places like a business center with fax and scan capabilities (it came in handy when my job needed me asap). Chris was also available around the clock but we never actually needed him after checking in. The unit was clean, spacious and had much more than we expected. The kitchen is stocked with everything (e.g dishes, pots, pans, appliances) you need to make a delicious meal if you find some local seafood. There are two baths and good a/C (very important). The outdoor patio is great for relaxing and the overall experience was wonderful. My only complaints are that the internal wi-fi (LaN) in the unit is good but the wi-fi in the city of Buzios (wan) is spotty at best. Even the coffee shop next door and business center had connectivity issues at times. The beach that is a 3 minute walk from the unit is a waste of time (small, empty) but Geriba beach - I think the best one in Buzios - is a 15 minute walk and totally worth it. Geriba also had a surf 'academy', life guards and wasn't overly crowded. The downtown shuttle takes you to the nightlife, runs 24-7 and costs $1 (2 reales). It basically stops in front of Loft Buzios or anywhere else along the main road if you flag it down. I would (and already have) recommended Loft Buzios to a friend going to Brazil later this summer.
Response from the owner Dear Demetrius, Thank you very much for all your comments. I´m pleased to read you all had an awesome experience while at the lOfT and surrondings. Hope to see you in Búzios again in a near future! Take care and best regards! Sincerely, Chris
