Incredible resort in every way!
O Casarao is an amazing resort that is so much better than the pictures. The unique architecture, décor, outstanding views, and pool make the home a special peaceful place. We enjoyed Regina’s breakfast each morning, and Oliviera provided stress-free transportation from the airport. Multiple patios, the bar in the infinity pool, and the huge lanai bi-fold doors add to the luxurious living experience. Bryce made sure that we had everything that we needed and was very easy to work with. Three beaches and the town center are an easy walk so location is perfect, as well. We have traveled to many places and this is the best. Bryce, thanks for a memorable Christmas in Buzios!”
Amazing property, most enjoyable stay
I spent a week in Buzios to celebrate my 60th birthday with family and a group of close friends from Italy and the experience couldn't be any better! The house is really amazing, with a breathtaking location overlooking the bay of Buzios. O Casarão is impeccable. Beautifully decorated with modern furniture and state of the art facilities and equipment (swimming pool, bathrooms, kitchen, etc...). Staff is attentive and extremely polite and professional. Even if we didn't manage to meet the owners in person, they were always in touch when we needed either info or help, providing prompt assistance to cater to all our needs. We would definitely and highly recommend it, with a rate of 6 stars out of 5! ;-) Roberto L.”
