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.

The Space

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.

Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • L'appartamento era molto carino, perfetto per una persona, si trova a 15 minuti a piedi dal centro. Il tramonto sull'amaca è qualcosa di fantastico, con la vista su itaparica. La zona è più o meno tranquilla, anche se la notte è consigliabile il taxi. Altra cosa negativa è che non ci sono finestre, quindi la notte è pieno di zanzare, inoltre il materasso è molto sottile, e non il massimo della comodità in quanto poggia direttamente a terra, in più penso che sarà molto vecchio, in quanto mi sono preso i morsi dalle cimici da materasso ( sembrava avessi il morbillo)

  • It's interesting and beautiful place, great views of The Bay!
    Also it's situated in historical places near the Centro Historico, smal markets and fair. You can go to Sete de Setembro to visit museums, restaurants-cafe-a kilo on the way)
    There is no Wi-Fi and many mosquitos at night. Electric-plug repellant didn't help me so I used anti-mosquito net near the bad and ventilator with low speed.
    This loft and neighbors are so nice! Especially if you want to see places of Jorge Amado's heroes.

  • Le logement était charmant conformément à la description et aux photos, mais la question des moustiques s'est avérée difficile à gérer, en dépit des répulsifs qui ne suffisaient pas, pas plus que la moustiquaire, je déconseille donc aux gens sensibles avec un potentiel allergique.

  • This was a nice place to stay, just as expected from the pictures. Very cosy. The neighborhood is a really nice alternative to the very touristy Pelourinho (although it is close). When I was there the mosquitos were quite bad, so make sure you bring insect repellant.

    Thanks, Sebanchester!
    Sometimes the mosquitos are really bad. Yes, it's really necessary insect repellant!

  • I had a great time at Pat's small loft in Salvador. It was exactly as the pictures and description say - a small space, but with everything you need. Watching the sky from the balcony was my favorite part of the place. Perfect for one or two people. I liked the neighborhood - within walking distance of Pelourinho but in a more authentic and lively part of town. I felt safe, even though you have to be a bit careful at night. Pat's neighbor was there, and was very friendly and helpful. Pat was very communicative and gave me great information about how to find the place and get around. The only downside was that the mattress is a little thin, so I don't recommend this place for anyone with a bad back.

    Thanks, Casey! I'll think about an extra mattress! :-)

  • Pat was very efficient and helpful. The place is cute and interesting. You are really part of the neighbourhood although the flat and terrace is really relaxing and private. Got taxis late at night but felt generally very safe in the area and very comfortable inside.

  • Patricia is an amazingly kind and considerate hostess. There was a maintenance issue prior to my arrival that she closely monitored throughout my stay to ensure my comfort.

    The loft is bright, cheerful, pristine and incredibly insect free! There are no windows, so I expected a few pesky varmints, however, other than the neighbors cat stopping by to investigate me once, I was not bothered by any pests. Citronella and mosquito netting kept the mossies at bay.

    As you can see from the pics, the view is stunning! I did have to wrench myself away from that picturesque seascape each morning.

    Because the studio is windowless, the scents and sounds of the neighbors flow in as though they're in the studio with you. The neighbor's parrot mimics the cry of a baby. (It took me a full day to figure that out).

    The neighborhood is nestled perfectly in the bustling historic district without being in the midst of tourist traffic. Attractions and public transportation are only a few minutes away by foot.

    Standard precautions assured my safety walking through the neighborhood, so I never felt threatened.

    Pat's place is delightful little retreat for a couple or a solo traveler.
