I had a fantastic stay with Heather. The house (and it is nice that it is actually a house rather than a small apartment) is perfectly located in Barra, close to shopping barra and a quick walk to the beach and buses to get anywhere else. It was a great place to get oriented to Salvador again and it was lovely hanging out with her dogs!
Very comfortable house in a great location close to beaches, markets, restaurants and all the amenities of Barra. Heather is very helpful and can provide useful local information.
Heather's place is great - good location, close to the beach, mall and bus/taxi routes.
Heather was welcoming and helpful and always ready to offer information or advice on how to get to places or get something done.
I will definitely stay again when I come to Salvador!
