This is really GREAT place - fully equipped and just steps away from one of Salvador's best quiet beaches.
Cristina was an amazing host. She kept prior to our arrival, met us during checkin and was very responsive. The apartment is exactly as it looks. It is well decorated, clean and very comfortable. The building is very nice with great neighbors and good security at the gate.
The apt is right near the beach and for the WorldCup was down the street from the fan park and good bars and restaurants.
Amazing beautiful light spacious apartment.
Myself and 3 friends stayed here for some of the World Cup 2014!!! The apartment is in a really safe and fun area and could EASILY sleep 6 people - all the bedrooms are light clean and have good air con.
The area around the apartment is fab with beach shops and yummy restaurants all within 5 mins walk - with perfect Brazilian feel and very safe. Due to the fab fab location ear plugs were needed to block out the sound but was easy to sleep and would not want this putting anyone off!!
We didn't meet the host but she left us amazing tips and enough information needed
Good kitchen and living area would love to come and stay again we were a party of 4 young students which was fun but also would be super good for families !!!!
A gente gostou muito da casa. Muito limpa, ordenada, cuidada, tudo novo. Ela deixo detalhes de benvinda para a gente. Acho uma das melhores anfitrioas que eu conheci. A localização e muito boa tb. O salão e um pouco caloroso, mas tem aire acondicionado nos quartos, então, tudo bem.
O único problema que eu encontrei foi o barulho dos ônibus desde muito cedo e os camiões de limpeza da rua.
Cristina was great since the very beginning, excellent communication. I can say she was even better during the check in and all along my stay at her apartment. She helped me to organize the meetups and also invited her family to join us :) The apartment was recently renovated, very clean, spacious and well located, walking distance from the beach, supermarket, bakery, small shops, taxi and bus station. As the apartment is located on the main street traffic can be a bit noisy for visitors with light sleep. I super recommend the host and her place! Thanks for all your support and kindness!
Fantastic location a block from tve beach and close to everything. Pictures have an accurate representation of the apartment. Mattresses were on the firm side and there were only blankets on two of the 8 beds. However the sheets were nice and clean and beds accommodated 8 adults. Parking spot was great and everything was as expected or better. Cristina was a gracious host with prompt and helpful communication regarding the apartment as well as salvador specific questions. I would recommend this apartment and would definitely stay here again!
Cristina was very responsive and helpful. We stayed at her place during Carnival. She put me in contact with someone regarding tickets, she reserved a driver to transfer us from the airport to the apartment, and provided recommendations of local restaurants. She was a great host.
The apartment is well situated, near the beach and Carnival circuit. Four of us stayed there, and it was a good size for us. All three bedrooms have air-conditioning and TVs. The living room is not air-conditioned.
We were generally quite happy with the apartment and location. Our only real problem was being able to sleep throughout the night. It was carnival, so some nights were loud outside, which was expected and fine. However, the insulation in the bedrooms seems different than that of the living room. The living room has a large window, whereas the bedrooms seemed to have the same space for a window, but only 1/3 of it was glass and the remaining 2/3 of the space seemed to be metal blinds. These metal blinds allowed much of the sound to enter the bedroom, making it difficult to sleep. Even without carnival noises, you could hear the smallest noise from outside. If this insulation/noise issue was fixed in the bedroom, it would be the perfect place.
