It is with great pleasure that Yanelis on site or myself (by email) will assist you during your stay in Salvador.
Do not hesitate to ask Yanelis her tips about Salvador, she is shy but loves to help. We are, however, not a pousada and can not guarantee our presence all the day long.

My biggest issue was that the ride Yanelis arranged for me to get to the Salvador airport cost me 3x as much as it should have. I had a 6am flight, so I needed a very early ride and couldn't rely on Uber. Yanelis said she had a friend. He arrived on time, and I realized it wasn't a taxi, but I thought it would be OK. When we go to the airport he asked for R$150, which was more than 3x what the Uber from the airport to the apartment had charged me (R$46). That meant that the one-way airport ride cost me nearly as much as the two nights in the room. There is a lovely view of the harbor from the room (industrial, but still nice). But there were ants in the room (not just a few but streams of them). Another major concern was that the doors did not lock (neither the room nor the house). I was given keys, but the doors were so loose that you could still push them open even when the "deadbolt" was engaged. It wouldn't have been that big of a concern, except the neighborhood didn't seem super safe. One last problem was with check-in. The address supplied through the system was not accurate. Xavier got back to me eventually explaining how to get there, but this information could be changed in the system so the guest does not have to rely on Xavier remembering to give them the hint. They need to fix these issues, and definitely never use that driver for airport rides again.

Response from Xavier:
We said Mary to use Uber to go to the airport, she said she was afraid Uber not to be reliable, so we offered an alternative way. Taxi at 4 am is 150 reais and our driver charged 120 reais ... yes it is much more than Uber, and Mary new it before. The doors lock perfectly, house and room, but as it is a double door, you have to fix the first one before you lock as any normal person know... We are in a tropical place, we may have som ants some time, especially when you have food in the room, which was the case of Mary even if it is not allowed... More than 250 guest received in the room, and we had 3 person not satisfied...

Xavier failed to reach out to me after I booked the room. Also, my flight was rescheduled and Xavier refused to refund me my money as well as refused to accommodate me for another night. It doesn't make sense and it was incredibly unfair that I had to pay a cleaning and service fee for a room I did not get to stay in. Obviously, he cares more about money than about being a fair and decent human being and host. I wouldn't recommend.

Response from Xavier:
Kamilas plane was canceled. She told it to us few hours before check inn. She wanted a refund, which was not possible, and then ask if we could change the booking for the next day. Unfortunately, we were full booked and i was not able to offer her a room. Asi wrote her, if we had had vacancy, it would have be a pleasure...

The view from the room is amazing. I didn't spend much time in the room but when I was there I hung out on the balcony reading and enjoying the view. The room is really spacious. If you're an international traveler the wifi works great in the common areas but it cuts in and out in the room.

Charming place for a perfect week-end in Salvador. Xavier et Yanelis are very responsive and helpful. The appartment is very well located near Pelourihno, near some top bars!

Amazingly furnished place with spectacular view! Very nice hosts and located close to historic district. On the exterior this neighborhood looks a bit dirty but it has lots of character and I felt relatively safe.
