Do as much or as little as you want here. Relax at the pool, sleep in a hammock, rent a canoe, snorkle, surf, check out the people, shops, restaurants and clubs on Rua das Pedras in Centro, or take advantage of the many tours and attractions Buzios has to offer.
Getting around Buzios is easy and fun! You can rent a beach buggy (bugre), a moped, a bicycle or hail a shuttle van, cab, bus or water taxi.
Your hosts, Renato and Chuck speak English, Spanish, and Portuguese.
Just let us know what you would like, and we will do our best to provide it!
Casa do Canto is beautiful, comfortable and quiet. You may relax by the pool, on the hammock or playing with Obama, an adorable dog. The hosts are very nice people and they will help you with anything you need. It turned out exactly what I expected from reading the other guest's experience! I look forward to meeting Chuck and Renato again.
It was great having dinner with them and a couple that was staying there as well. We enjoyed carnival together (:
PS: loved the beach towels!! and Renato's pão de queijo is the best.
Me and my boyfriend went to Buzios over NYE to relax for our first days in Brazil. We were very happy with staying at Casa do Canto.
First of all Chuck and Renato are excellent hosts. We arrived at Rio airport late in the evening, and Chuck helped us get bus tickets to Buzios that had to be prebooked, and picked is up at the bus station in Buzios even though we arrived in the middle if the night. They were very eager to help and give recommendations to make our stay the best possible.
The house was also very nice. We thought the pictures in airbnb don't do the house justice. The room was very nice with a comfortable bed and a very clean and nice bathroom.
We loved the terass with the pool! It was really nice to start the day with having breakfast there and then lie by the pool. They play nice music the whole day so its really relaxing to be by the pool and just enjoy the sun and read.
As for the location it's very convenient. Shuttle buses go all the time to Centro from the main road which is very close to the house.
We would really recommend this place to anyone. We couldn't be happier with the stay! Thank you Chuck and Renato!
Great hosts, they took us to this great sunset bay to share drinks and experiences. I enjoyed their pool vry much, the perfect place to prepare for the hectic carnaval in Rio!
And their breakfast is phenomenal!
Amazing hosts, great location, and amazing house. Renato and Chuck picked me up at the bus station and even dropped me off early in the morning upon our departure. Amazingly clean house and great location to the beach and the center of Buzios. Couldn't have asked for a better experience.
Chuck was a great host. He made every effort to make sure we were comfortable. The room was spacious, clean, comfortable, and private. GREAT towels. Breakfast was served everyday, which was delicious. The dog was friendly and fun. The hosts were always willing to give us recommendations and directions if we needed them. The whole atmosphere of the house was very relaxed. Would come again!
Our first experience with AirBnb and it was amazing! Casa do Canto is a great place. Chuck and Renato are wonderful hosts, great stories, very friendly and helpful, and their dog is simply the best! The room is very cozy and clean, the bathroom is better than most expensive hotels out there, great towels. Delicious home made breakfast, they make the best natural orange juice. Everything, from the orange juice all the way to the bedroom itself, was way better than expected! The location is very good (short walk from the Porto da Barra complex), but we reccomend renting a car or buggy to experience all the beaches and Arraial do Cabo. We can't wait to go back.
We had a wonderful stay. Chuck and Renato are very nice and helpful hosts. It was easy to go everywhere. Highly recommended!
