Excellent Location in Barra- Close to the newly remodeled Orla, Barra Lighthouse and Shopping Barra. Easy access to other touristic places as well. My house is spacious, simple and comfortable.
Major tourist attractions and the beach are just blocks away!!! Location is key here in this private house with rooms for rent in the "heart" of Barra. This older house has a common living room, bar, large kitchen, and washroom, and three bedrooms that are simple, clean, spacious and comfortable.There are two separate shared bathrooms. All rooms have big windows and ceiling fans. Located close to restaurants, bars, beach, Barra shopping mall and major bus routes, walking around is easy . It has a back yard that can be used for relaxing outdoors and front veranda that overlooks the lively Rua Belo (website hidden) and wireless internet available. The location couldn't be better for those who want to spend a few days or weeks visiting Salvador. The main Barra beaches and scenic Orla (sidewalk along the beach, great for walking and jogging) are just a few blocks away. A well equipped kitchen/bar is available to use as well.
Full kitchen, two shared bathrooms, washing machine, back yard area and front veranda. The living room is shared and it has cable TV.

Heather is an amazing host and has a truly beautiful home! It is close proximity to the beach, bom preco, banks, and the bus stop. It's so easy to get to other areas of Salvador from her spot. I especially loved the ice cream shop right next door. The place was extremely beautiful, open with lots of light and clean and Heather made me feel right at home. When I arrived I was a bit under the weather and she took care to make sure that I was well as if I were family. I felt so comfortable in her space and will definitely pass through again when I am in Salvador Bahia. T
Before I booked the room, I got a feeling that Heather was an amazing woman, which turned out to be true. I had a wonderful experience in Salvador, partially because of Heather and this lovely house. Close to Barra beach and shopping center. Many restaurants and bars nearby. I loved the house and Heathers kitchen (it used be used for a crepes restaurant, ask Heather more about this interesting ch in her life). I highly recommend.
Until next time love,
We enjoyed our stay at Heather's place. The place is simple but clean and comfortable and is close to Barra beach and a major shopping mall. There's a lighthouse not too far away where you can relax and watch the sunset. Buses to the stadium and Pelourinho were easily accessible. Heather is easy going, friendly, and we enjoyed talking with her. Would recommend her place.
I stayed 6 nights at Heather's apartment in Barra during the World Cup. Her photos and description give a very accurate representation of the apartment. The location is in the heart of Barra district. I had to walk only a few blocks to get to the lighthouse, which is where the FIFA Fan Fest was located. Heather was extremely hospitable and helpful, taking me to lunch one day and helping me purchase a replacement phone after mine was stolen (be careful in Pelo!). Highly recommended.
I stayed at Heather's place in Barra while in Salvador for a dance training. The accommodations were very spacious and clean and Heather was a very friendly and gracious host who provided me with helpful information to navigate my way around Salvador. I had a wonderful experience renting her space and would highly recommend her accommodations to anyone visiting Salvador da Bahia!!
I had been in Brazil already two weeks when I arrived in Salvador to brilliant wonderful hot sun and a big smile from Heather. Arriving in Heather's place is like dropping into a family with 3 wonderful bouncing smiling dogs.
Heather's place was the perfect location in Salvador for me ---- I was right in the middle of the two places I needed to travel to frequently during my stay and literally just 2 blocks from wonderful beaches - I could walk down and back easily several times a day. A big plus for me is that Heather's place is just behind a wonderful shopping mall with not one but 3 cafes where you can get a great espresso! For a coffee addict that is heaven ....... :-)
The great surprise for me is that the area where the house is located is quiet. I slept well.
The house is simple but very clean ( Pina is a gem ).
I definitely recommend staying here and have already directed friends of mine to check it out.
