Interaction with Guests
We live in Barra and can help make sure everything is perfect.
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.

Grande apartamento! Todos as coisas é novo! Na cozinha todos os equipamentos necessários! Localização perfeito! Murilo é um boa pessoa e muito gentil! Eu realmente gostei! Eu quero voltar à este lugar novamente!
The place is really nice, the way we see in the pictures...it's very well maintained and everything works well especially the wi-fi...the location is perfect - right in front of the ocean! Ah, the pictures don't show but from the balcony we do have a beautiful view of the ocean...
Although Murilo wasn't in town he made sure he followed up with me to know if everything was fine...
I would stay there again and I highly recommend it!
It was a very pleasant stay at Barra. The apartment is good and very well situated, really close to Farol de Barra.
Even if our host wasn't here, everything had been organisated to welcome us. The neighbourhood is very nice, with the beach in front of the apartment building.
All the equipments of the apartment are ok, except the wifi with which we had many issues.
Thank you Murilo and Celia !
Murilo & Celia--Thank you so much for letting us stay at your place! Fabulous location and plenty of space. We loved watching the sunset over the lighthouse, and a quick walk down to the beach.
Murilo had some pick us up at the airport and even though we arrived early and the room was not ready he offered another one till the time being. The location is stunning, located by two beaches and the light house. Room was clean and spacious. Only wish the the room had a/c!
Communication with Murilo was great after I booked with him. We took a cab from the airport that costs $60 real plus tip. Getting into the apartment was easy as he left the key with the doorman.
The location is across the street from Fifa fanfest, Lighthouse, and a block from the beach/supermarket. The room consisted of only cold showers, which we weren’t used to. The neighbors are locals and friendly. We left out key out by mistake once and the neighbors brought it down to the doorman. We never got to meet Murilo as his brother was in a serious accident. We hope he is okay and that Murilo is taking care of him. That’s unfortunate, as it would have helped to get guidance and recommendations for the surrounding area. We also asked him to help book our cab to which he didn’t respond to until it was too late.
Hôte très accueillant et arrangeant. Appartements très agréables et bien situés. Une adresse a recommander !

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!
