The Space

Top location: Praiaville Building right on the beachfront on the Carnival avenida and just a step away from top beaches: Oceanica and Porto da Barra.

Make the most of your vacation budget in this beachfront apartment that sleeps comfortably up to 4 people.
A double and single bed in the spacious bedroom and a sleeping sofa in the living room make this apartment ideal for a family or group of friends.

You can see the sun go down on the Bahia de Todos os Santos like the lovers who sit at the Farol or from your own balcony. The bedroom overlooks part of the building private Atlantic Forest reserve at the back. The place is quiet, cool and shady, ideal for those afraid of the Bahia heat.

Barra remains a top location for those seeking to combine beach scene and city life. It is a residential area with any convenience (supermarkets, movie theaters, banks, cleaners...), restaurants, cafes, you name it. The views are to die for.

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

The Neighborhood

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.

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

Upon request we do airport pick-up and have a garage space in the building we can let.

Check In
  • 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.

  • The apartment was very comfortable and the location was great. The only drawback was that the Internet did not work. I enjoyed my stay.

  • Todo perfecto. El departamento es muy comodo, muy bien ubicado en la ciudad y de facil acceso al resto de Salvador. Murillo fue muy útil como anfitrión y siempre estuvo atento a cualquier necesidad. Sin ninguna duda un lugar recomentable.

  • Appartement très bien situé dans le quartier de Barra, tout près de 2 arrêts de bus qui desservent le centre de Salvador ainsi que d'autres quartiers.
    L'appartement a un confort sommaire, mais si vous aimez la mer, l'emplacement est idéal. L'immeuble est extrêmement calme, il y a un gardien en permanence qui assure la sécurité et qui se révèle bien pratique pour des tas de petits conseils sur Salvador.
    Par ailleurs Murilo, le propriétaire, est souvent présent dans un bureau a proximité de l'immeuble, ce qui se révèle pratique si l'on a des questions ou un problème.
    Bref, si vous ne recherchez pas le confort 4* mais un appartement simple et bien situé, c'est la bonne adresse !

  • I met a Catalonian man in Lencois while I was here on a Public Health study abroad...I left to Ilheus. Over the course of 48 hrs we decided to hook up again. I needed to book a place 24 hrs before leaving Ilheus to Salvador. I found Murillo and just made it happen.

    Not only did my lover and I get a nice apartment but, Apartment 107 is primo! Oceanviews, state of the art appliances and plenty of room in case you might get on someone's last nerve. We had two views of Porto da Barra's Farrol B and we were within walking distance of everything we needed including shopping and buses! The beach on the weekend and Forro on Friday night!

    Murillo treated us like family. He is always on the line ready to answer any question and provide advice. He knows how to host and caters to people traveling abroad and also couples. He speaks Spanish and English which is also key!

    Muito agradecida de voce Murill(phone number hidden)Veronica la Mexican Ochoa y Xevi el catalano Plano Erta !!!

Murilo (Bahia, Brazil) & Celia (Pamplona, Spain) met at the Montreux Jazz Festival (Switzerland) in 2003.

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!
