Pues la señora Fusae es una madre por así decir!
El estudio esta impecable y el servicio del personal también es fenomenal.
Yo ya he recomendado a todos mi amigos que vendrán en verano para los carnavales quedase aquí, la ubicación es perfecta y tenemos todo que necesitamos a dos pasos. Supermercado,farmacia,centro comercial,muchas panaderías con cada pan y cada bollería tan buena que yo hasta voy llevando unos quilitos extras jajajaja... Pero ya me puse las pilas en la dieta que aquí realmente esta todo bueno.
Sin mencionar el mar que esta a la vuelta de la esquina.
Yo realmente recomiendo a todos que quieran venir y seguros que estarán e muy buen sitio.
Fusae, enhorabuena por ofrecer un sitio tan agradable con un trato muy personal, un fuerte abrazo!
My host was cordial. She was attentive and her place was clean, organized, comfortable, safe, next to a grocery store and 1 block & 1/2 from the Praia da Barra, and within walking distance or transport via taxi or bus to the historic Pelourinha. Everything functioned well. I highly recommend this property for visitors to Salvador who want to live in and experience the Barra neighborhood but still be close to the Pelourinha, Barra Shopping, restaurants, and other points of interest for tourist.
Dona Fusae and her son Gustavo were such lovely hosts!!!
While I was in Salvador, they helped me lean Portuguese by encouraging me to practice conversation in their language, even though they do speak English. Dona Fusae was kind enough to walk me to school on my first day of Portuguese classes. She also took me to the fruit and vegetable market, and took me for a driving tour of the town which gave me a better sense of the size of the city and the directions to the points of interest. Their friendliness is so genuine and sincere. They are truly lovely people with kind hearts!!! They love to travel themselves, so they understand the needs of persons spending time in a strange country and city. I felt lucky to have chosen this accommodation, which really is an "excellent place in Barra", not only because of the graciousness of the hosts, but also because you can walk everywhere in the neighborhood of Barra. If you go to the beach, all you need is a towel and the keys, because when you need cash or anything else, you can just pop back into your room, since it is just around the corner (3-5 min walk). The very clean accommodations are a great value, and have everything you need. The Porto da Barra beach with its transparent waters, and little shops, dinning, and bars, are right around the block. There is a good medium sized supermarket right next door, as well as a very good pizza shop, Villa Toscana (run by the very friendly Lucas), and Yoyo a delicious and very clean lunch buffet across the street. I will happily stay at (full name hidden) again whenever I return to Salvador!!!
Ótima recepção e localização! Próximo do belo Porto da Barra. Acessível a supermercado e pontos de ônibus.
A Fusae é muito prestativa e receptiva.
Indico para todos!
Lo mejor de los estudios de Fusae y Gustavo es la ubicación. Al lado de un supermercado y a 1 cuadra de la mejor playa de Salvador. Las paradas de colectivo estan muy cerca y es muy facil ubicarse tambien. El estudio es pequeño, pero cuenta con las comodidades necesarias. Muy limpio y ordenado. Fusae y Gustavo son extremadamente amables
Fusae was so wonderful! She went above and beyond to make sure that my friend and I had the BEST possible experience in Bahia. My friend and I had lots of luggage, and her son Gustavo carried up all our very heavy luggage to the floor we were on - so thoughtful and caring! The apartment was exceptionally clean and well-kept. Fusae had recommendations for us for food, safety in the community, and other things we would ask her as well. One day, Fusae even took us out to different tourist sites in the city - she was a fantastic host! The apartment is also very safe since there is a private gate, a keyed entrance to the condo, and a door for the actual apartment itself (3 keys!)
El apartamento es pequeño pero cuenta con todas las comodidades. Fusae y su hijo nos hicieron sentir en casa desde el principio. La ubicación del lugar es perfecto, al lado del supermercado y a unos pasos de la playa. El barrio es genial, seguro y muy bonito (aunque por las mañanas muy temprano hay mucho movimiento y ruido así que recomiendo llevar tapones para dormir).
Por lo demás, encantado con el lugar, lo recomiendo.

About the Host, Fusae
I am Japanese and live in Brazil for over 30 years.
I have a building near the beach in Salvador / Bahia, and always dreamed about manage a hotel or a guesthouse.
So, I decided to turn my space into rental apartments, especially for tourists and exchange students, among other travelers or temporary residents.
Eu sou japonesa e moro no Brasil há mais de 30 anos.
Tenho um prédio a beira da praia, em Salvador/Bahia, e sempre sonhei em administrar uma pousada.
Então, resolvi transformar o meu espaço em apartamentos de aluguel, especialmente para turistas e estudantes em intercâmbio, entre outros viajantes ou moradores temporários.
Sejam Bem Vindos!!!
