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.

The Space

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.

We are based in Barra to make sure you have everything you need during your stay

The Neighborhood

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.

Getting around

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.

  • 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!

  • We stayed at Murilo and Celia's apt for a week vacation to Salvador. The apartment was exactly as described. It was clean and had wonderful views. Great breeze coming in from ocean. We arrived after midnight, Murilo had a Taxi waiting for us at airport and he left keys with doorman. They were available whenever we needed to help out with things such as exchanging money. It was a great experience. I highly recommend this place and Murilo and Celia as hosts. We will be staying here again on future trips.

  • Amazing views is not an exaggeration! We loved this place. It was clean, spacious and updated with breathtaking views. Great location with easy access to at least two different beaches and walkability to many restaurants and a grocery store. We were unable to get in touch with the hosts when we arrived and having no wifi was a bit tough, but on our scheduled departure date Murilo did call to check on how our stay was. He seemed very nice and offered us a later check out if we needed it. Would absolutely stay here again! Great experience!

  • No mucho que agregar a las otras evaluaciones positivas de Murilo, que nos atendió exquisitamente, con todas las "dicas" para una estadía feliz en su departamento. En suma, altamente recomendable.

    September 2013
  • Murilo es un excelente anfitrión!!! Una persona con buena onda, siempre dispuesto a recomendar lugares serios para conocer mejor Salvador. Estamos muy agradecidos con él, realmente nos sentimos como en nuestro hogar, nos sentimos recibidos por un viejo amigo. El departamento contaba con las comodidades que nos mencionaron y en un barrio céntrico y cerca de todo, y de lo más lejano con el transporte que pasaba por la puerta. Muchas Gracias Murilo, esperamos que vengas a nuestra región así devolvemos tu generosidad!!!!!

  • It was our second stay at Murilo&Celias apartment and we again enjoyed it very much! The apartment is central and has everything you need for your stay in Salvador. The ocean view is fantastic and the with the windows opened there is no need at all for air-conditioning. Also this time we received the keys from the guard which is very easy because day and night there is always someone at the entrance.

    June 2013
  • We enjoyed the stay at Celia and Murilo´s Apartment. The Kontact was easy and the guard handed us in the keys. The ocean view is terrific and the apartment has everything you need. There are good connections to the airport and the city and the internet works fine once you find out where the cable is.

Murilo (Bahia, Brazil) & Celia (Pamplona, Spain) met at the Montreux Jazz Festival (Switzerland) in 2003. We started this business accidentally in 2006 and have been enjoying meeting people from around the world since. Murilo is based in Salvador and is the logistics and hospitality master. He makes sure everything is perfect for your stay. We speak Portuguese, Spanish, French, German and English. We love to travel but even when we are rafting in Central America, hiking in Venezuela, or scuba-diving in the Caribbean, we read our emails every day and get back to every single inquiry!
