Sweeping 360 degree views of the Buzios coast from our balcony made this hilltop home a real treat for our family. It was nice to be able to visit the town/beaches during the day/evening but then relax away from the crowds at night. We all loved the lush plants and the acerola cherries that were growing on Lucy's property. Lucy is a native English speaker from London (also fluent in Portugese) whose been living in Buzios for many years. She really helped us understand Brazilian culture in a way we probably could not have otherwise. Every morning she made us a top notch breakfast of local fruits, meats, cheeses, eggs, juice and these wonderful warm cheese biscuit things that seem to be very popular in Brazil. (Lucy makes really good ones) After Breakfast we would walk down from Casa De Luz to the beach just a short walk from the house. There are two great beaches there where you can swim with sea turtles, work on your tan, watch the locals, rent boats, and order food right on the beach. You can get Caprihainas there too, but if your going to drink, I'd recommend ordering something from Lucy's husband Christiano. He made the best Caprihainas we had anywhere in Brazil. He's a bartender at a great restaurant in town and it shows. He can serve them up to your room if you like. :) We usually went down to town at night, things really pick up at night in Buzios. and it can get very lively with dancing and live music, but it can also be a great place for a quiet romantic walk along the water. Lucy recommended a nice restaurant and we all enjoyed it. The shopping is great but watch those Brazilian prices, if your careful you can get some good deals. There was a big (American) football game while we were there and we had no problem getting the game on Lucy's Satellite Dish. She was extremely accommodating. All in all I'd give the place 5 stars. Its a charming home away from home and a welcome respite from the harsher realities of international travel.
