Bryce was an exceptional host. Know you are in good hands if you are thinking about staying at his Villa. He was very responsive during the entire process from initial booking request to trip planning and throughout our stay. He was very informative for both portions of our trips in Rio and Buzios and gave some great tips. He was very helpful in establishing logistics including helping us book transfers, find buggy rentals, and gave some solid recommendations on good food and the best beaches. Bryce was a consummate professional and gave us a detailed walk-through of his Villa including instructions on how to work all the electronics and arranged for groceries so we would be all set-up. He made us feel right at home. Bryce and his wife's Villa in Buzios is something to behold. Someone said it before, but I will reiterate this having experienced it first hand. You will not appreciate the beauty of this Villa until you see it in-person. The Villa shows well in photos, but shows much better in person. This is truly a one-of-a-kind location, and worth every penny. Bryce and Adriana - Thank you again for your hospitality. We were thrilled to have the opportunity to stay at your place, and will be dreaming of the next time we can come back for a visit!

This place is even better than the pictures! The pool takes the cake but the amenities in the rest of the house are also fabulous. Having freshly squeezed juice and breakfast prepared for us in the mornings was also a great added bonus. The house is in a great location, walking distance to the town and beaches. Bryce was extremely helpful throughout the whole process, offering tips and recos for beaches, restaurants and other activities. The host even took us to town to buy groceries when we first arrived. Can't wait for our next trip to Buzios. We will definitely be staying at Bryce's house. Thank you Bryce!

We had a fantastic stay at Bryce's house. The reality is exactly as depicted by the pictures on the website - if not better! The view is truly incredible and the infinity pool must be one of the most stunning and well designed in the world. Without doubt this is one of the best houses in Buzios with excellent facilities (the kitchen was a joy to be in and cook in). Before we arrived, Bryce was quick to give us tips on the best beaches, restaurants etc in Buzios and also arranged for a cot and high chair to be left for our son. There were also plenty of toys and books available for children. Check in and check out was easy too - and flexible meaning we were able to arrive early and leave late - altogether a great weekend! Thank you!

Realmente a vista é deslumbrante, de tirar o fôlego. A estada na casa do Bryce foi excepcional, vale realmente a pena. A Regina que sempre está disponível na casa e muito simpática e serve um café da manhã excelente. Ela também deixa a casa sempre limpa e troca as toalhas e roupa de cama. Irmos voltar com certeza.

Bryce tem uma casa linda, uma das mais bonitas que já fiquei. Decoração de muito bom gosto e de alta qualidade. Realmente feita com carinho e com um alto investimento. Poderia ficar pro resto do ano na casa sem problemas. A caseira também foi extremamente simpática e prestativa. Inicialmente ficou um pouco preocupado por sermos um grupo de jovens, mas ocorreu tudo bem e tivemos uma excelente experiência. Recomendo para todos, especialmente para familias e grupo de amigos que queiram uma viagem tranquila e de alto nível!

Tivemos uma excelente estadia na casa do Bryce. O Casarão é exatamente como mostrado nas fotos, cada ambiente minimamente decorado, ótimo serviço, conforto e ainda uma vista estonteante! Búzios ficou ainda mais bela! Dificilmente teremos em Búzios dias melhores do que os que tivemos na casa do Bryce!!
