It was the second time we stayed at Eamonn's. Last time we booked only the lower floor, now we stayed in the penthouse as well. What a lovely place this is: impeccable, cool, and - in one word - unique. Eamonn's a gentleman and easy to communicate with. Highly recommended. We wille come back, again.

If you go to Salvador and need a place choose Eamonn! The apartment is extremely well located in the Barra area one minute walk from the lighthouse, 2 minutes walk from the beach. The flat is well decorated, spacious and the view is a killer. Eamonn is always available and will do his best to make your stay a fantastic experience. From the aiport to the flat and back or if you need advices on the night life, visits, history of Salvador ... Eamonn happily guide you.

Great place to stay in. Soooo stylist yet very comfortable. Emanon was extremely helpful from the word go, with some great hints and tips. Easy to communicate with. The area is really safe. Historical city of Salvador is only a 20 minute taxi drive away.

My family of four stayed in Eamonn’s apartment for five nights this August. The apartment is as seen in the photos: stunning. Each room, including the kitchen, is crafted with modern fittings and furnishings offering gorgeous views onto the ocean, which is three minutes walk from the apartment. You can hear the waves, not disturbingly loud, just soothing. Cool breezes throughout our days and nights removed the need for a/c, which we did not use, even as a precaution against mosquitoes, not one of which was felt or sighted throughout our stay in Salvador. Eamonn was abroad during our visit but made excellent arrangements to facilitate our midnight check-in and have someone on call for inconveniences that never arose. There was too much to see and do in Salvador within four days, and the urge to relax in splendid surroundings worked at times against efficient planning of outdoor trips. Highly recommended to begin the day is an early morning walk/run along the waterfront, and if lunchtime finds you in the apartment, exit the building, turn left and walk two blocks to an excellent local buffet. If contemplating a visit to Salvador, think of Eamonn’s apartment as an extra incentive.

Eamonn was a great host. The apartment is gorgeous and it's views of Barra and the Farol are absolutely amazing! The apartment is a great space for a big group. Bonus: Each one of the bedrooms has air conditioning and a complete bathroom in addition to a full bathroom in the common space!

This is a great apartment just off of the orla (shore) in Barra. The apartment had everything we needed in it (including lots of towels/sheets/soap/shampoo/dishes/plug adaptors/hd tv with netflix). We were 6 people and very comfortable. I loved that the three rooms each had its own complete bathroom and air conditioner. There was also a powder room. The living room/kitchen never got too hot since there is a nice breeze being near the shore. The building as 24 hour doorman. The view from the balcony is lovely (lighthouse and orla) though in May we couldn't see the sunset (you can in summer). Since the windows in the living room were open, we could hear loud music from bars every evening, but once we were in the bedroom, with the windows closed, it didn't bother us at all. The host, Eamonn, was great and very helpful to us by being extremely prompt at answering emails when we had questions or help finding things around the city. He offered to organize transfers and suggested day trips. He organized for a lady to come cook local cuisine for us (delicious!) and do some cleaning in the apartment. We liked that there were several grocery stores nearby and loved being able to take walks along the shore. The taxi ride to Pelourinho was short (20ish minutes) and inexpensive (28 reais). The beach just across the street is rocky and has strong waves (saw lots of surfers) but if you walk 5-10 minutes there is a very nice, calm beach that even my 1 year old went into happily. There are chairs and umbrellas to rent and vendors for just about anything (food/bikinis/souvenirs).

Response from Eamonn:
Hi Marie, I'm very pleased you enjoyed your stay in my apartment, and I hope to welcome you back in the future. Thank you for the nice review. For others reading this review: regarding the music noise from the bar in the next block over, this bar opened in the past year, but the local noise ordinance ensures that the music stops at 10pm.

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.
