It is with the greatest pleasure that Yanelis on site or myself (by email) will assist you during your stay in Salvador. Do not hesitate to ask Yanelis its deals in Salvador, she is shy but loves to help. We are however not a Pousada and can not guarantee our permanent presence on the premises.
Santo Antonio neighborhood has changed! In ten years this district dedicated to a slow decay has seen install the finest guest houses in the city. Not less than 15 charming pousadas in the street!
For what reason?
1/ Proximity of Pelourinho : Close to the lively and noisy Pelourinho where you walk our neighborhood is quiet at night ...
2/ The beauty of the street and the view: In a unique Bahia neighborhood enjoy a quality of life forgotten in the rest of the city .
3/ Safety : The district is one of the safest Salvador .
Close to the house you'll enjoy visiting Fort Santo Antonio( world center of capoeira) and may assist a Samba on the square if you are lucky (50 meters). The Baroque church "Boquerão" is one of the nicest in Town (150 meters). Finally you can enjoy a " arumadinho " or " carne da sol" while drinking a beer at the Cruz de Pasqual (200 meters) unless you prefer the terrace restaurant Ulysses ( known throughout Salvador) 20 meters from the house) ...
Most of our guests arrive at the airport. We work with a retiree who can wait and bring you home pretty near the same price as a taxi: 100 reais.
It is also possible to come to the airport by bus during day time.
The embarkation ports for Itaparica, the islands , Morro de Sao Paolo e Boipeba are located close to the house. The bus station is accessible by bus or taxi (25 reais). The area is rich in bus allowing easy access to the beaches.
We stopped for the night in Salvador before continuing to Chapada Diamantina. Xavier's place was perfect for the four of us (two couples). It's on the end of a quiet, safe street near a small grocer and bakery, and a 10 minute walk to the Pelourinho, so the location is great. The house is divided into several independent units, and ours upstairs had two bedrooms and a bathroom. One bathroom has a great balcony overlooking the bay. The common terrace downstairs from the unit was truly amazing though. Open to the bay, with a table and many chairs for lounging, it was the perfect place to start and end the day. The on-site caretaker stays in a separate unit, and makes a delicious breakfast (for a small charge) with eggs, fresh fruit, juice and coffee if you request it. We also had Xavier arrange a pickup from the airport which made things very easy.
Overall the place is very clean, safe and in a great part of the city. The pictures don't do the decor or view justice. Would absolutely stay here again and recommend to anyone visiting Salvador!
I have only positive comments! Very beautiful, quiet and clean, and good location.
Great flat close to the center and in a pretty safe area. Thanks for the experience :)
Once you enter Xavier's home you see just how much time and effort he's invested in crafting a unique and attractive home. We found the upstairs private apartment to be just right. There was often a comfortable breeze coming in and the view is either industrial-chic or ocean blue depending on where you stand and what you want. The bed and pillows were comfortable and clean, as was the bathroom. Xavier was welcoming and even invited us to join him and some friends for New Year's Eve. All of the other guests in his house were very friendly and nice and we enjoyed talking with them. Overall a very positive experience.
Awesome awesome place to stay! Xavier - fantastic host, he know's so much about the Brazil's culture, its history etc. Made our stay in Salvador safe & thoroughly enjoyable.
Thanks Xavier for everything, your place is amazing! xx

The journey in Xavier's house was perfect. The room was clean and nice. The room is well located in Santo Antonio area just a few walk (10 - 15 min) from Pelhourinho that enable to be in a quiet area. Flat is perfect if you are a family of 3 or 4.
You have also a nice sea view but just a little noise from the road downside but that is the price if you want a seaview.
You will be received by Yanelis who can prepare if you request the best breakfast in Brazil we had!
Xavier was very helpful to prepare our trip, we highly recommend also to ask for the taxi service.
Très bel appartement avec vue sur la baie et le port de Salvador, propre, dans une belle maison bien décorée. Xavier et Yanelis sont des hôtes très accueillants, sympathiques et serviables. Yanelis prépare d'excellents petits déjeuners à la maison ; elle cuisine également de très bons kébabs dans un petit resto calme et très agréable dans la même rue. Un super séjour!!!
Séjour très agréable dans une magnifique maison pleine de cachets.
Très belle vue. Très bonne situation par rapport au Pelourinho.
Quartier très calme malgré le murmure de la ville.
