Terrificunit, location, people

  • 5 of 5

We cant recommend this holiday destination enough. We are from Australia and had toured with the rigours of the world cup, and were badly in need of some relax time. We got that and more. The unit is totally self contained and more, its really a modern, trendy quirky home from home. The complex itself has all the facilities you need with pool and sauna. The location was perfect for us also. In walking distance of beaches both sides of the peninsula and bars and restaurants. Its a short trip in the local R2.50 taxi vans to the town centre. We fell in love with Buzios. The owners made us feel so welcome we felt part of the family. 10 out of 10.

A relaxing and comfortable family apartment.

  • 4 of 5

When arriving at the Loft, Chris received us with warmth and friendliness. The apartment itself is comfortable, well furnished and well equipped. It is located in a condominium at the beginning of Manguinhos beach and access to Buzios town centre is relatively easy, if you have a car. The condominium has a sauna and a swimming pool. I would recommend this apartment for couples with children.

Chic,comfortable and exceptional value for money

  • 5 of 5

We stayed two weeks in this charming loft apartment. I have to start by saying how fantastic Chris, the owner is. He greeted us on our arrival, showing us around the apartment and pointing out all that we needed to know. He also recommended restaurants and a place where we could hire a car. Unfortunately whilst we were at Joao Fernandes beach, a beach umbrella was blown off its stand and hit my husband, splitting his head open. The restaurant owner tried to summon an ambulance but it was Chris and his wife, who contacted the emergency services and ensured that we got an ambulance quickly. The service provided by the public hospital was very efficient and excellent and the service was also free! Both Chris and his wife came round later that evening to ensure that we were OK. Chris also took us back to to the hospital to have the stitches removed. Chris´s caring attitude and help was exceptional and we can´t commend him more highly for all the trouble he took to look after my husband.

The apartment itself is attractively furnished,very comfortable and spotlessly clean. There is a small kitchenette, which a two ring gas burner, a large fridge freezer and a breakfast bar. It is also well equipped, so we were able to cook a few meals when we didn't want to go out. There is also an excellent supermarket right next door. The lounge area has a comfortable settee which converts into an extra double bed. The main double bed is on a mezzanine floor, accessed by a spiral staircase and forms a very attractive bedroom, with an en-suite shower room, with an excellent large shower. There is also an additional shower room on the ground - very useful. The apartment has A/C, ceiling fan and mosquito nets on all the windows. The attention to details shown by the owner, Chris, is commendable - he has thought of everything! There is also an attractive private terrace at the back of the apartment which has a table and chairs and also a settee and two armchairs.

The apartment is well situated, with buses stopping right outside, providing fast and efficient access to Centro and Ossos. I would however recommend hiring a car for access to some of the other beaches. We particularly liked Forno, which has just one beach bar and an uncrowded beach; Praia Brava for Rocka Restaurant and the incredible sun beds and also Praia Tartaruga - make sure you eat the wonderful BBQ´s fish at Sol da Tartaruga - this was the best fish we had in two weeks. We also enjoyed Bistro 67 in Centro.

Owner's Response: Dear Sue & Alan, Thank you so very much for your kind review and compliments. You are a such lovely couple. I feel a sense of accomplishment when I receive and read a review like yours. Every single detail at the lOfT was thought with lots of love, care and attention and you captured that. Thank you! I´m happy also you and Alan had a great time while at Búzios regardless of the little accident with the umbrella at the beach. Sincerely hope you may be back in a near future for new tropical adventures in Búzios and at the lOfT!!! Warmest regards, Chris

beautiful, relaxing stay in Buzios

  • 5 of 5

lOfT is exactly as beautiful in person as it is in pictures. Chris was so friendly and helpful with anything we needed or had questions about it. The space is simply gorgeous, and we felt very safe. It is conveniently located near one of the most fun beaches in Buzios (Geriba), but close to many of the beaches, if you like something more private. Be aware that wifi only works when you are outside, but the back patio is gorgeous, so it isn't so bad to be forced out there to check email and such. It may be inconvenient for people who need to constant access to the internet, but hopefully while you're in Buzios, you can enjoy the beautiful area and not be tied to e-mails and work! Also, we visited during the low season, so the bakery others have mentioned was VERY convenient for us - they open early and stay open late! I would definitely recommend lOfT to anyone visiting Buzios.

Owner's Response: Dear Jasmine And Kelvin, Thank you very much for your comments. I sincerely hope you had a wonderful time while in Búzios and at the lOfT. It was a pleasure to have you both down here! I´m striving to have good internet at the lOfT but like I said often is not in my hands to control it. My best and hope you may be back someday! Chris

Awesome value

  • 5 of 5

My friend and I were traveling on a budget and wanted to experience Buzios without breaking the bank. This rental was economical and better than expected in terms of quality and comfort. The owner, Chris, was extremely helpful from the moment we inquired about the rental. He e-mailed us high quality pics, details about booking and an exhaustive list of travel options from Rio. He also met us at the rental and gave us a tour of the whole facility which included a pool, sauna, free secured parking and a security desk that is staffed at night. The compound is walled and gated and next door (literally) to a shopping center that has a coffee shop, bakery and a host of other useful places like a business center with fax and scan capabilities (it came in handy when my job needed me ASAP). Chris was also available around the clock but we never actually needed him after checking in.

The unit was clean, spacious and had much more than we expected. The kitchen is stocked with everything (e.g dishes, pots, pans, appliances) you need to make a delicious meal if you find some local seafood. There are two baths and good A/C (very important). The outdoor patio is great for relaxing and the overall experience was wonderful. My only complaints are that the internal wi-fi (LAN) in the unit is good but the wi-fi in the city of Buzios (WAN) is spotty at best. Even the coffee shop next door and business center had connectivity issues at times. The beach that is a 3 minute walk from the unit is a waste of time (small, empty) but Geriba beach - I think the best one in Buzios - is a 15 minute walk and totally worth it. Geriba also had a surf 'academy', life guards and wasn't overly crowded.

The downtown shuttle takes you to the nightlife, runs 24-7 and costs $1 (2 reales). It basically stops in front of Loft Buzios or anywhere else along the main road if you flag it down.

I would (and already have) recommended Loft Buzios to a friend going to Brazil later this summer.

Owner's Response: Dear Demetrius, Thank you very much for all your comments. I´m pleased to read you all had an awesome experience while at the lOfT and surrondings. Hope to see you in Búzios again in a near future! I will just leave a quick note regarding Manguinhos Beach: like as I always tell my guests when they arrive the "best beach" opinion varies a lot depending on if you are married, single, if you have kids, if you wanna party, if you are a surfer, etc. Some love Manguinhos Beach, some prefer Geribá, like in your case, and some even love other beaches in town. In my particular opinion as resident and father, Manguinhos Beach is the largest beach in town, steps from the lOfT, waveless, peaceful and its waters tend to be warmer than the ones on the south side. It is incredible for family walkings, very safe for children to play and has the most beautiful sunset in town. I truly think it is worth a visit! Take care and best regards! Sincerely, Chris

Can't wait to go back !

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at the loft during the World windsurfing Championship and it was perfect ! So close to the beach that in a 10min walk I was at the sailing club. Chris was an amazing host, always there if we needed, interested in my sport, has very good and funny stories to tell and he even brought us chocolates on women's day ! The loft is calm and comfortable, plus there is an really good bakery for breakfast 1min away :)
