  • We stayed at Eamonn’s apartment for 10 days. His apartment was really good – the most luxury apartment so far for us. The price is very reasonable and Eamonn was very helpful during our stay. It’s perfectly located in beautiful Barra. We definitely recommend you stay here!

  • Everything about our stay at Eamonn's apartment was perfect. From initial contact Eamonn provided us with an amazing amount of information to enjoy Salvador from a locals perspective which truly enhanced our visit. The transfers to and from the airport that he arranged were friendly, reliable and efficient. The apartment itself is in a great location in Barra, 5 minutes walk to a great local beach scene and with a taxi rank out front. The apartment is exactly as it appears in the photos. It is very secure, clean, has amazing views and of course that amazing pool and sound system. We found Salvador to be one of our favourite places in Brazil and hoping to return we would definitely stay in Eamonn's apartment again.

  • Eamonn's space was so beautiful and has the most famous view in this part of Brazil! The condo was extremely comfortable. The pictures here are accurate, though it looks so much nicer in person! It was a pleasure to stay here. The neighborhood amenities were good (restaurants and the gym were convenient). It was a short walk to the beach from here and getting a taxi here was never a problem. It was a nice short walk (day and night) to a nearby plaza featuring more restaurants and some shopping. We hit a second hand bookstore on the plaza near the smaller beach a bit south of the lighthouse and were invited to a Friday night jazz concert by the owner. Stop by the store for great entertainment! There was live music in bars two blocks away. It's a great space in a great location! Thank you and I cannot wait to return!

  • Me and my girlfriend booked the upper apartment for 5 days and we didn't go out that much during the day because it was too nice to stay in. The swimming pool on the roof just makes it the greatest place to stay.

    Eamonn was very helpful giving a great list of recommendations. I can recommend everybody to stay here.

  • Eamonn is one of the best host ever!! He shares with you alot of knowledge of the area, knows where to go music and best places to eat!
    Travelling alone he was very helpful and resourceful. His apartment has everything you could possibly want (the view, location, taxi, beach, restaurants and bbq) close to Rodin Meusem,Pelourinho, and so much more...I didn´t expect to go to Praia do Forte -Projecto Tamar turtle conservation, it was only 2 hours away. I really enjoyed my stay here in Bahia and it was the high light of my trip!!!

  • If there is a better apartment with a better view in Salvador I would be surprised. The apartment had a location that was easy to get to navigate to (for taxi drivers) and it was on the route of a couple of major bus lines, which are an alternative to taking the taxis. The view is amazing, the amenities (TV and stereo) are amazing, the pool is amazing. I would definitely stay here again. I wish my stay in Salvador was longer and I knew more people in the city to take more advantage of the barbeque area and pool!!

  • I found apartment we rented from Eamonn exceeded our expectations. There is no better location and view in Salvador!
    Eamonn , as the owner is very well organized .
    All our needs were taking into serious consideration and we got full support , including advises where to go and where to eat .
    Apartment is full of light , space and very good smart design.
    I would recomend this apartment to be seriously considered , if you travel to Salvador.

  • Wonderful place, I believe the best in Salvador. Has been extremely thoughtfully designed. It is big but very comfortable. The pictures do it justice to an extent only, but trust me, it is absolutely worth it. It is perfect for entertaining a small group (we had a churrasco). The location, besides the view (breathtaking), is also good: it is on a safe, convenient street. One minor drawback: as with many penthouses in Brazil (in my experience), the elevator mechanics can be loud. For those who are sensitive to noise, as I am, this can take some getting used to, but it would absolutely not stop me from going back, hopefully very soon.
