About this listing
Loft full, magnificent view of the Bay of All Saints. Here you watch one of the most beautiful sunset of the city lying in a hammock. Ideal for a single traveler or couple wanting to live the local reality.
I'm living in São Paulo but I have this little studio in Salvador, Bahia, where I have lived for 18 years. It's a small loft ideal for a sinale or a couple, located in Dois de Julho, the central district in Salvador, 5 minutes walking to MAM (Bahia Modern Museum of Art) - you can swin at the small beach within the Park of Sculptures beside the Bahia Marina. Every Saturday at sunset has a jam session with local jazz bands, very good sound. You also can go to Pelourinho, 15 minutes walking - historic center night life, concerts and restaurants and either 15 minutes by bus / taxi to Porto da Barra, one of the most beautiful beaches in the world - calm seas, warm and transparent.
This loft consists of a mezzanine with double futon bed and fan (no air conditioner), bathroom, small kitchen to prepare breakfast and quick meals and veranda with an amazing view of the sea and the Bay of All Sants. Place is lush and sunny. The sunset takes place around 18 hours right in front, on our porch. A beautiful image that you can enjoy lying in a hammock. The location is ideal for a person or couple, travelers wanting a real sense of the city life.
Dois de Julho is an old and historic neighborhood, characterized by narrow streets, paved with old fashioned paving stones, baroque architecture mixed with modern architecture, dogs and children playing in front of their houses. You can walk quietly up to the Largo (one block from home) and will find a sort of restaurants of homemade food (good and cheap), small markets, a pharmacy, fruit and vegetable stands and bakeries. There are public transport buses to almost all other neighborhoods and taxi ranks as well.
WE DON'T HAVE WI-FI.
THERE ARE LAN HOUSES AT THE CORNER OF OUR STREET.
I do not have many rules but these three are paramount and must be respected.
1º Treat this house as your home and take care of everything. No smoking inside the house, especially the bedroom. The net over the bed is highly flammable. Smoking is only permitted on the balcony. And please do not throw cigarette butts in the yard below. Two tortoises live there.
2º The entry of strangers without previous authorization from the host, especial native people is not allowed. I've had problems with guest who brought people he've met on the street into the house. This guest had disagreements with this strange and endangered his own life. I do not want this kind of situation from recurring. This is a measure for the safety of the house, the other residents of the building and for your own safety. No tolerance for sex tourism.
3º Please turn off the lights, TV and fans when you leave the house, even you're going to the bakery on the street corner.
