Villa 89
  • All destinations
  • Búzios



Villa 89 is a magnificent property situated at the top of a hill, giving the house unrivalled views across both sides of the Búzios peninsula. The architect of the house is a former hotel designer, and made sure every part of the house makes the most of the stunning view. The house also offers an ideal location - less than five minutes to the nearest beach.

The property accommodates 16 guests and extends to seven ensuite bedrooms with bathrooms, including two master suites with their own terrace access leading out to beautiful panoramic views. The house also has a spacious double height living room with plenty of comfortable couches (two other guests can be accommodated in the sofa beds), a dining room (indoor and outdoor), a fully equipped kitchen, a large office overlooking the ocean, a home cinema and a games room.

Outside the house you will find a large raised veranda that stretches along the front of the property, with ample seating, a further dining area, and incredible views. There is a swimming pool surrounded by a limestone pool deck, equipped with underwater speakers and a pool house. There is also an additional kitchen with a BBQ and pizza oven. The spacious garden is home to a wide variety of fruit trees, chickens and quails, all of which contribute to your fresh daily breakfast prepared by the housekeeper. And don't forget the 150 year old turtles and parrots!

The villa is suitable for groups of friends and families with children of all ages. The house is also great for those looking for privacy and security, as the grounds are gated and there is a security system.

Area description

Situated less than 125 miles from Rio, Armação dos Búzios is the ultimate weekend getaway for Cariocas. A small rustic fishing community, Búzios became popular in the 60’s as a beach escape for Rio’s rich and famous (Brigitte Bardot was even photographed there on holiday, putting Búzios firmly on the map). The area has experienced rapid growth over the last 15 years, however it has retained its charm by controlling development and allowing only low-rise construction.

Beyond the 23 different beaches on the peninsula - best explored by beach buggy or by one of the schooners that tours the bay daily - there are many other activities including diving, surfing, fishing, water sports, boat charters, hiking, horseback riding and golf.

Rua das Pedras, a cobble-stoned road in the center of the town, runs along the shore and boasts charming restaurants and bars, chic shopping, and a vibrant nightlife scene.

English-speaking house manager. Maid service 6 days a week.

Additional professional cooks, maids, babysitters, barmen and boatmen (for rented boats) may be provided for an extra cost and paid for locally when requested in advance.

Private transfers with trusted drivers can be arranged from both airports in Rio upon request (the drive is around 2.5 hours). Búzios has its own small airport, and helicopter and private plane charters are also available upon request. Car hire in Búzios is recommended while staying at this house.

Boat charter is the best way to explore the pristine beaches around Búzios. We work with a variety of speed-boats, crewed yachts and converted local fishing boats which can be arranged for you in advance or during your stay.

To make your arrival at the property as relaxing as possible, we suggest we stock the kitchen and fridges with a customized grocery shop prior to your trip. This means that you will arrive to a kitchen full of food, a fridge full of cold drinks and that the first meal can be served shortly after your arrival.

Best Bits

  • A large veranda runs the length of the house and makes the most of the unrivalled ocean views
  • The beautiful pool surrounded by stone deck

Bear in Mind

  • While the house is extremely comfortable and well-appointed, the decor is laid back and not aimed at those looking for modern design
  • Although the house is suited for young children, parents with toddlers should be aware that the pool is not fenced off
  • There are seven bedrooms and a convertible room, so eight in total
