  • This apartment is a winner all the way. Basically, it is way more beautiful than on the pictures. I loved the way it is so spacious with carefully chosen furniture and jaw-drapping views over the Baia do Todos os Santos. Heather was a helpful, fund and easy-going host: the perfect combination. Location also good, Dois de Julho is an interesting neighborhood, close to Pelorino and other points of interest. I could warmly recommend this place to anybody looking for an affordable yet unique place to stay. Note that you might be sharing this space with other guests.

  • A little gem of a flat in a interesting Salvador neighborhood. Easy access to markets, Museum of Modern Art, buses to the beach, street vendors and good food. The view from Heather's place is fantastic, the bedroom cozy, and kitchen well stocked for cooking. Heather was incredibly gracious with her time, and a great resource for getting around the city.

  • 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!!

  • There's is not much to say that haven't been said already.
    It's a wonderful place were you'll find everything you need (towel....) and in the evening you have just the most beautiful view of the sunset.
    I have been to other places in Salvador and even if it was nice everywhere, Heather's place was the best from far.

    Thank you so much.

  • Heather's house is a really special place, very beautifully decorated, with lots of plants, and an incredible view of the bay. I actually ended up with Heather staying two months and didn't want to leave. Heather is a wonderful host. She showed me around the city when I was new in town. I had a great time getting to know her and hanging out with her sweet dogs. Dois de Julho is a quirky and fun neighborhood- living there is not an experience that most tourists will ever get of Salvador.

  • This house is a kind of paradise! room is simple but with all you need. Heather were so kind to leave cold filter water at the fridge every morning. That is very important at the hot Salvador:)

    Its pity i havent seen Heather but once, when I checked-out - I were busy to explorer Bahia, and Heather were at work....

    The view from the house balcony is beaitiful, nice garden, nice neigborhood. At night I just took a taxi from Pelourinio, price 10 reais. And at the day time the way for Pelourinio took 15 minutes by foot, to the beach - 5 minutes by bus.
    I had very happy and safe time at Salvador, thanks to so nice and comfortable accomodation.

  • Quel beau souvenir que ce séjour chez Heather !
    L'appartement est super bien situé avec une très grande terrasse où il faisait bon prendre son petit café du matin et flemmarder le soir jusqu'au coucher du soleil. Et la vue !!! Ca se passe même de commentaires, il faut y aller pour se rendre compte.

  • Heather was really friendly and went out of her way to make our stay comfortable and enjoyable. We had a great time and would recommend Heather for anyone traveling to Barra.
