Interaction with Guests
When I am in Salvador, I orient guests to apartment and neighborhood. I like to offer a welcome drink and make some recommendations about the city. When not in Salvador, I try to be available to answer questions.
Barra has everything for a perfect vacation and is probably the safest neighborhood in Salvador. Porto da Barra beach has calm water, a great social scene and a spectacular sunset. Stand-up paddle-boards are available for rent and there is a dive-shop. The Farol beach has rock pools at low tide near Farol, with waves suitable for surfing at other end. A newly redeveloped sea-front (Orla) provides a great 3km pedestrianized area for walking, running and socializing. There are public bikes available, free for the first 45 minutes. There are plenty of bars and restaurants within easy walking distance. Supermarkets and a big shopping center are within 5-10 minutes. The Pelourinho (historic center) and Rio Vermelho (night-life area) are 10-15 minutes by taxi or bus.
Buses and taxis are available close to apartment. Airport is 28 km from apartment, so best to arrive by taxi.
No smoking, except on decks. Standard condominium rules apply.
This apartment surely has the best view of Barra - seen from the pool terrace, perfect for sunsets. It's well stocked with equipment for barbecues and meal preparation but also a short walk to the sea front restaurants.
The owner is very accommodating when it comes to arranging transport, check-in and supplying crucial tips for the best Salvador sights.
Lovely place, all very well organised and eamon is super helpful. Could not fault.
Eamonn's apartment is a jewel -- we can't wait to return! The views are spectacular and the furnishings and supplies are perfect for an enjoyable stay. The location in Barra is ideal for enjoying beaches, but also for getting to any other Salvador location. Services in the neighborhood are very good. The new promenade along the beach is a huge bonus as well.
We made good use of the churrasqueira on the top floor, especially after we found the butcher right down the street. Eating outdoors as the sun set was nearly magical.
Eamonn was always available to answer questions or give suggestions. From the very start he was responsive and straightforward which was helpful as we determined our own travel plans and details.
I would recommend this penthouse very highly, and have only good things to say about Eamonn. We will be returning ourselves.
Eamonn's place is in a great location, has wonderful views, and we couldn't be more in love with it! Eamonn was also incredibly thoughtful and helpful and provided us with insider's information about what to see, transportation, food (where to buy and where to eat).
I've already recommended this place to several friends!
Eamonn's Bahia apartment is such a complete AirBnb success story, they should consider including his place in a commercial! I have to say that whenever I show photos of my trip to Brazil, the apartment gets as much if not more oohs and ahhs than the sites and beaches we visited.
Everything about the place was just what we hoped for, if not even better. Eamonn himself was an ideal host - very prompt in his responses and attentive to our questions.
The location is great, an easy walk to beaches, restaurants, grocery stores, and taxis to get to other areas. Barra is a great area to stay, which you'll see once you see how sketchy the Pelourinho is at night.
One of my favorite highlights was just swinging in the hammock, enjoying the warm breeze while reading a book.
One word to describe Eammon’s property: WOW. 3 floors of luxury. Well designed apartamentido. Bene (part of Eamonn's team) was very helpful! Nice that Eammon checked in on us a few times to ensure everything was good. He genuinely is a very caring host and has fantastic knowledge of all the things to do in Salvador. Would recommend this property to anyone looking for luxury accommodation in Salvador” - it is breathtakingly beautiful.
A stunning property and a wonderful host!
We had a great week in Salvador. The apartment was just amazing with a great view from the sun terrace. Eamonn, the host was very helpful with tips to what we could do during our stay and also with all practical issues(Airport transport etc.) Which made this a very pleasant stay!

Originally from Dublin, now I split my time between California, Bahia and exploring the rest of the world. I enjoy outdoor activities like hiking, mountain biking, swimming, diving, skiing, also cultural interests especially live music.
I love my adopted home of Salvador and I am very happy to share recommendations for places and events, especially those off the usual tourist track.
I am open to apartment swaps in other locations, feel free to contact me.
