The views from the 3 comfortable bedrooms and baths are stunning. The common areas were huge and had everything we needed to entertain ourselves.

We enjoy people and love to share our local knowledge with guests. We enjoy inspiring and being inspired by the friends we make. We live close to most a beautiful ocean and beaches and love to get in them everyday! From kayaking, stand up paddle and traditional surfing, cycling, hiking, and photography, we do it all.

We love hosting travellers because we think our home, and the area where we live in, gives visitors a true sense of what it's like to live where we do. Come experience our home as your home. Like a Local! We want to make your stay as enjoyable as possible. We look forward to hosting you soon!

Why Jacquelini Benisty chose Albatroz

This house is built on a unique lot we specially chose. it is the highest house in Buzios. Not only is it the highest, it also has what no other place in Buzios has, 360 views of the Buzios Peninsula!! From the house one can see view of *Both* sides of the peninsula. Only from this house is it possible. Besides this awesome feature we are also directly connected to the Buzios Natural reserve which connects to the back yard. Then there is the design of the house itself. It is modern built designed in the spirit of indoor-outdoor living to inspire the ideal vacation.

What makes this house unique

Built on top of the ridge between Geriba Beach and Ferradura Beach nestled in the Buzios Natural Reserve, with a stunning ocean-view and total privacy. Perfect location, far enough to escape it all, but close enough to take easy advantage of what Buzios have to offer.

Less than 10 minutes walk to the nearest beach Ferradurinha, or a few minutes by car. 2 miles from Geriba Beach, 2 miles from Ferradura Beach, 3.5 miles from Rua Das Pedras.

Just one glimpse of the house will reveal that you’re in for something special.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This was my 11th trip to Brazil but the first with my teenage son. The house is exactly as advertised. Sitting atop the highest point in Buzios with spectacular views from every rooms and especially the decks. You can be perfectly content hanging out by the pool and watching the waves crash on the beach in the distance. The house is well appointed. The kitchen is equipped with a gas stove, toaster, blender and all the cooking utensils you'd need. The bedrooms are spacious with great views and air conditoning or you can enjoy the nice breezes given the house sits at a higher elevation. Nearly all the beaches, grocery stores, and city center are a 15 minute drive from the house - everything is easy to get to. I'd recommend this house for a family and friends who want peace and quiet but also great access to all that Buzios has to offer. There are many, many great restaurants in the city center that cater to every taste. The one cautionary note I would add. There's no clear instructions of how to deal with household trash. It would be helpful to have a small container on the premises. You'll have to collect the trash and drive it to one of the make-shift garbage receptacles located along the residential streets. Otherwise, a great home for vacation in a lovely part of the world.

Absolutely Stunning views & incredibly relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We've never had the luxury of staying at such a beautiful and relaxing location. This home provided a very private and relaxing environment. The pool was perfect, we got in multiple times a day. The decks and hammocks are perfect for reading and relaxing, and the balconies get the best breezes! We were happy to see how easy it was to get to and from both by car and on foot.

Fresh clean safe comfortable private close to beac

  • 5 of 5

The House came with all the amenities one could need, and more. And of course the views are as advertised. Actually, the views are *better* than mentioned. It is hard to show the view in the pictures as they are much wider than one can fit into a photograph. And there are views in many directions. Views from every room in the house, even the bathroom!

It is beautifully designed. The indoor-our design concept is great. One is connected to outside when inside, and connected to inside when outside. This kept everyone feeling as part of a community. It added so much.

Everything else was first class and 5-star. The small things like the bedding and towels and that sort of thing. Especially the communication and service. Both the host and the on-site caretaker were always available whenever we needed. We really didn't as everything was provided.
