About this listing
This is the place you can shoot your Salvador postcard pictures. It is as good as it looks. Simply the place you need to make your Bahia vacation unique: beach cool, stunningly beautiful views, music and bar scene, and historic buildings. This is it.
Enjoy an evening at the veranda of this oceanfront one bedroom apartment facing the Barra Lighthouse and the All Saints Bay. From each room you will enjoy 180 degree superb ocean views (even the kitchen!). Very often our guests tell us that the spent most of their time leaning out of the balcony or the bedroom window especially at sunset. Their best vacation shots were taken from their own room. In fact you can hear the sound of the waves from your bed!!
This is a top location (see the pics, the building is pointed at with a red arrow). Beachfront, meters away from Oceanica Beach and Porto de Barra Beach, 100ms away from the Barra Farol (Lighthouse), Salvador's landmark. The bus stop is at the door, the building is located in the center of the avenida, any convenience or amenity you wish for (bank, hairdresser, bar, supermarket, etc) is just around the corner.
If you spend New Year’s or Carnaval you will see the parade with the trios passing under the balcony and live performances taking place right at the Farol. The apartment is spacious, bright, airy, comfortable, and tastefully furnished.

Interaction with Guests
We are based in Barra to make sure you have everything you need during your stay
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.
Other Things to Note
We offer airport pick-up and an optional parking space in the building.

A recommander ++++
Murilo and Celia's apartment is really lovely, decently well sized and has some breathtaking views. It is very well located in one of the best areas in Salvador. Thoroughly recommended.
My friend and I visited Salvador for the World Cup and could not have stayed at a better place. Great location with supermarket and restaurants close by. Amazing views from the apartment with nice cool breeze throughout the day/night. Murilo was very helpful with all of our needs (exchanging money, booking us tickets to Morro de Sao Paulo, directions, flexible with check-in/out times, etc). If you are going to Salvador, I highly recommend this place.
Our staying at Murilo's apartement was great. He's an excellent host, really helpful and willing to give us advices and (email hidden)e apartement was perfectly located, really comfortable and fully equiped. We would definitely come back. I strongly recommend Murilo's apartement!
Muito bom apt! Bem localizado, limpo, seguro, organizado, linda vista, lindo por do sol. Murilo muito atencioso e respondia rápido minhas dividas. Valeu!
Had a wonderful stay at Murilo's place. It is very simple but the location is perfect (easy bus ride to the Pelorinho District and we even walked back each time!) Having the ocean right outside offers incredible views and refreshing sounds. We would certainly stay at Murilo's place again!
