  • Renato and Chuck were super hosts. Friendly, cooperative and full of local tips. Breakfast was always fresh and complete (with scrambled eggs and Brazilian products). We were there during New Years and they were very inclusive with celebrating with us.

    The pool and garden are very enjoyable and user-friendly. We had the room with the balcony, which had an extra touch, and a private bathroom which was very clean.

    If your looking for a place in Buzios, we HIGHLY recommend staying at Renato's and Chucks. The location is fantastic - a 5 minute walk from stores, beach cafes and restaurants. Beaches are not far either.

    *Tip: have dinner at Renato's restaurant, a 10 minute walk from the bnb.

  • Chuck and Renato are so nice, funny, helpful, interesting, that it was a great pleasure to live in their pousada during those days. We fell in love with Buzios (and Obama...) and we are longing to coming back there and seeing Chuck and Renato, and having fun with them. They invited us to join their party one evening, and we had a lot of fun...Thank's again, Chuck and Renato.
    The house is well furnished, the bedroom is big, the bathroom and the towels are great, the swimming pool seems great, too, we didin't have time to test it...the breakfast is generous...well, what to say more ? Nothing, except : go there and enjoy the place and the three (we can't forget Obama, since he totally makes his part of the whole charm) guys in it... Alexandra and Yves

  • Chuck and Renato are two of the coolest people I have ever met. They picked us up from the bus station, cooked us AMAZING meals (best we had in all of Brazil) and gave us some great tips about Buzios. I hope you are as luck as I was to stay with them at Casa do Canto.

  • Chuck and Renato were outstanding hosts. They made me and my friend Andrea feel welcomed and at home. They were very willing to give us tips and advise and guide us through the must-see places in Buzios. They also helped us getting around back and forth their home to the bus station and renting a car, very nice gesture of them.
    We loved their breakfast, bossa nova music great vibes, and very cute dog Obama.
    I definitely recommend anyone to stay at Casa do Canto if you want to feel at home in a great vacation town.

  • Chuck and Renato could not have been more welcoming to me and my friend. We got to Buzios after some delay on our end, and they were incredibly patient. Chuck was even waiting for us when the bus arrived. They went out of their way to make us feel comfortable and showed us around to different beautiful beaches nearby. The house and rooms were clean and nicely decorated with all the amenities (ie wifi, TV, hot shower, beautiful pool and a stocked kitchen). They were kind enough to let us join them for a carnival party with their friends and we had a blast! And I´d be remiss if I didn´t mention their dog... what a love! If you´re looking for a place in Buzios you must stay with Chuck and Renato. Lovely people, lovely home.

  • Buzios is a great little town with many beaches and great nightlife. Our stay was much more than we expected and it was truly our hosts that made Buzios a memorable city. Chuck and Renato have a beautiful home and a friendly and loving dog, Obama. Our hosts took us sightseeing during the day and invited us out with them at night. We were made to feel right at home at Casa do Canto. I can't wait to stay there again, I highly recommend staying with Chuck and Renato!

  • We loved our stay here with Renato and Chuck! It was fabulous and had an amazing breakfast which we enjoyed every morning. They were very welcoming and the description of the place was exactly how it was (and better!). We loved Obama too! :) Thanks for a great stay and a great New Years!

  • The Casa do Canto Pousada was amazing! The hosts Chuck and Renato went out of their way for me. They picked me up and dropped me off at the bus station, drove me to the beach on my first day and made me feel immediately at home! The rooms are bright and comfortable. Mine had a great balcony w a hammock overlooking the pool. The bathrooms can beat any 5 star hotel.... plush huge towels, spacious and airy. Great sheets, wifi... all the amenities but in a laid back beachside environment. And the breakfast felt like a holiday feast!! Best of all, their dog who is the unofficial host of the pousada!!!
    Amazing experience. If you are looking for accomodations in Buzios, stop looking and book this one now!!!!!
