  • The beach house was perfect! Everything very clean and modern with nice cozy touches. We thought the house was very charming and loved the outdoor space to eat breakfast and to hang out.
    The best thing about the house was the location! It is smacked right in the center and walking to town where the shops and restaurants were could not have been easier.

    Rachel was very helpful in the whole process.

    The only improvement I would suggest for the house is to set-up wifi in the place. We would have been willing to pay more for the wi-fi and I think it would be a good investment for the house.

  • This place is a great place to stay for people looking for a very nice, comfortable place in Buzios with the advantages of being close to town and close to the beach. You're just one block from the beach, and 1 block from the main road. Its quiet, but accessible to the things you want.

    We stayed at Rachel's house in Buzios for last week of November this year. We're from San Francisco and had not rented in Buzios before - so we were a little unsure about what to expect. We have two small children (3 and 5 years) and were looking for a nice relaxing place that was close to beaches and also restaurants / downtown without too much walking.

    The house is in a beautiful older development that is rich with beautiful flowers and lush vegetation. The house itself is very reminiscent of a French country home - similar to Provence, if you've been there. Slightly rustic, but in a good way. A nice deck area is off the livingroom to eat dinner and breakfast. There is also small grass area where kids can run around and explore in safety.

    Beds are comfortable, bathrooms are nice, and the kitchen is well equipped with all the cooking utensils that we needed. Air conditioning is available in most bedrooms. The only thing that we would have liked would have been Wifi Internet access - but there is a cafe just across the street that has wifi Internet access - they'll give you the password if you buy a coffee, so it wasn't a big deal.

    There are also two pools that our kids loved. We were in Buzios before the vacation season really started so we had the entire pool area to ourselves whenever we were there.

    If we come back to Buzios - we would definitely try to stay at this house again.

  • Our stay at Rachel's house was lovely, and she was very responsive and communicative with us in the planning and in follow up. We had zero problems in organizing our stay with her.

    The house is in a great location right in the center of Buzios near the McDonalds (in case you know the town), yet is very quiet and peaceful with a small yard and outdoor eating area. The house was very clean, spacious, and nicely decorated. The kitchen was well stocked for basic cooking needs and had drinking water available. The open plan kitchen/ living room/ outdoor area made it a perfect space for socializing or for families.

    The condos have a nice pool and a parking area. It was great for kids - we had 3 small children and 3 adults - and we easily could have had more people. I would highly recommend staying at Rachel's place. A very relaxing space steps from restaurants and bars!

    Thank you!!

  • When I reserved the "minimum" stay for New years Eve, I told Rachel wanted to extend my stay. She rented for the same day I was in the house ( 2nd of january) without consulting me. Then she didn't reply my email about extending my stay and possibilities or early checking. Then I called her driving from Sao Paulo to Rio, and she pickup the phone, and sent messages asking me to check online messages. She didnt want to talk over the phone . This happened because Rachel wanted to "increase" the price of the rental because I told her I was going to take more people than I initially planned. Before listening to my proposal She even threatened canceling the reservation if I didn't accept to pay a higher price. On checkout day, I was 2 hours late , from midday to 2PM, She said new guests would only come in at night, but I gently hosted the guests, safeguarded their luggage, and gave them directions around Buzios.... Knowing that I would write a negative review rachel sent me a message saying "she was disappointed that I didn't collaborate on checkout" . The house is fine , but I would never do business with this person again. Success !! Renato

    Response from Rachel:

    Renato was a very polite and gentle person until one day before he was supposed to check in. He sent me an email one day before at 1h30 in the morning asking if he could check in one day earlier. I spoke to him on the phone in the next morning when he told me that instead of 4 guests, hhe was coming with 8 guests which makes a substancial difference. But that wasn't really the problem since the house can host 8 guest, what happenned is that we didn't let enough linen and Towels for his guests s I told him. In regards to the earlier check in, I asked him to do it throughout Air BnB, since I dind't know him and we wouldn't be there to charge him the extra night. Now I see that he left me a negative review saying that what I weanted was to charge more? Well I guess that everywere in the world, when you stay one more night, you charge this one more night, and that's the way Air BnB adivised me to do. In regards to the Check out, the other reservation was booked prior to his, so he actually knew that we had guests on the 2nd, since it was booked on the Air BnB calendar. I asked him before his check in to leave the house at 12pm as we had guests arriving at night and we needed to clean the house. Renato dissapointed me once more with the comment negative review that he left, I was always compreehensive and available and when I had to speak to him he never picked up my calls orAir BnB calls. I didn't plan to make this public, but since he did, I had to explain how the real situation. Cheers Rachel
