Interaction with Guests
We are in Barra to help you if you need anything
The Barra neighborhood is home to Salvador’s carnaval and some great beaches . Barra is also one of the most traditional neighborhoods of Salvador. Barra's busy waterfront were once three colonial forts. The most impressive today is Bahia's oldest, the polygonal Forte de Santo Antônio da Barra, built in 1598. Known simply as "Farol da Barra" for its lighthouse, the fort houses a small nautical museum. Stay for sunset - Salvador's peninsula is the only place in Brazil where the sun sets over the ocean. Our apartments are just across the street from the Farol.
Barra is a residential area in the city center. It is a safe and very convenient location, where you have everything you may need in less than two blocks from the apartments: bars, restaurants, supermarkets, banks, malls, historical buildings, laundromats, etc. To go from Barra to the old town (Pelourinho) or to the beaches north of town, the bus stop is right at the Praiaville building entrance.

Nossa estadia foi excelente, tudo conforme o anunciado e ainda melhor. A localização é privilegiada e com ótima estrutura. Murilo foi um ótimo anfitrião, muito atencioso e prestativo. Salvador é maravilhosa e seu povo muito amável. Recomendamos a todos os amigos do AIRBN essa experiência.
Perfect apartment for stay in Salvador! I spent 4 days in it and enjoyed every minute. Apartment is well equipt and cozy. Moreover grocery store, shopping mall, several bars and restaurants are just around the corner. The beach is 1min from apartment. The pelourinho is short taxi ride or if you want a little adventure public bus will bring you in 10min.
The apartment was absolutely perfect for us. Amazing location in Barra. The kitchen was really well equipped and the whole apartment was clean and comfortable.
Maurilo was a good host, we didn't see him much but he was there when we needed him :)
Thanks for the lovely stay.
The flat was very clean and offers you a lot of space. Kitchen is equipped with everything you need, bed-rooms includes ac. Absolutely perfect, if you wanna stay for a longer time!
It is situated only 5 minutes of walking to barra beech. We had a great stay!
This was a good place to stay in Salvador. The apartment was basic but exactly what we needed. It was right by the beach and lighthouse which was a good location. It was around a 15min taxi drive from the centre of Salvador but there were still some really nice places to eat/drink in the immediate vicinity. There was a slight issue at the start, when the taxi we had pre-organised with the host didn't turn up at the airport. We were later notified his car was broken, but it would have been good to have been given the heads up rather than being left to wait. Other than that everything went very smoothly; the key was left as promised and we had everything we needed in the apartment. Given that we were travelling during the World Cup, when everything is more expensive, I would say this was really great value for money.
Murilo was a great host. He was very flexible with our flights and check in/out times. Murilo always responded to any inquiries we had very quickly and was always prompt to meet with us. The apartment is clean and also includes a pull out mattress underneath the bed which was not listed, so it was a great bonus. It is right on the beach (two to choose from within walking distance) next to the beautiful scenery of the lighthouse and close to anything that you need. You can walk to bars, restaurants, laundry, beach, the mall, etc. Also, it is only a 20R or less taxi to Pelorinho. So it was great to stay near the beach but be able to visit anywhere we wanted for cheap without having to deal with the commotion all the time. Overall this was a great place to stay and a great value!
Super flat, excellent location close to the beach, very safe neighbourhood and friendly host! Maurilo helped us to organize the transfer from and to the airport which was extremely helpful. The flat has everything you need and Maurilo seems to be refurbishing and improving it all the time (we had new chairs and a new AC).
