“Excellent time at Casa Da Luz”
Reviewed June 21, 2013

Casa de Luz is a lovely little place with arguably one of the best views in Buzios. It is about a 30 minute walk from the center of town, but it’s pretty easy to just take a bus, or rent a buggy as we did. Lucy was a really delightful host, she was even willing to take the time to teach us how to drive a stickshift car, which neither of us had ever driven before. Every morning she makes breakfast whenever you want, and is ready to point you to one of Buzios’s 25 beaches, or advise you on the many other activities available on the islandtown. She knows all the best restaurants and bars in town. Lucy really makes you feel like her house is your house. We had a relaxing and fun couple days in Buzios, and couldn’t have asked for a nicer place to stay.

Very nice and relaxing place! Rooms are comfy and clean and have a fantastic view on both sides of the peninsula. Lucy, the owner, is very nice and knowledgeable about the region and serves amazing breakfasts (apart form the fresh fruit and granola, I love her cheese balls and pineapple cake!). It's a 5-10 min walk to lovely little Ferraduhina beach and a few more minutes to the long Geriba beach. It's easier to go to Buzios town centre by car or boogie (10min) or bus than on foot, but staying on this hill is so relaxing that it's definitely worth it. Plus, you can still hear the waves and there are supermarkets, great bakeries and a little town centre in Geriba as well, which is a 15-min walk or 5min drive away. If you want to be close to the beaches and amenities, but enjoy some tranquility and not be in the middle of all other tourists, that's the place to be.

The view from balcony both sun rise and sunset are impressive. Lucy is very friendly and accommodated me around Buzios by herself as I traveled alone. The place is cosy. Location may be concerned for person who do not like walking or you have choices of taxi. It's good for work out if you like. it is not far from Geriba beach.
