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. 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 plenty of bars and restaurants within easy walking distance. Supermarkets and a big shopping center are within 5-10 minutes. The Pelourinho 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 veranda. Standard condominium rules apply.
Master-suite, king-size platform bed, black slate bathroom, dual shower, soaking tub, dual sink, opaque glass-enclosed toilet
Eamon is een goede gastheer. Alles wat we van te voren hadden afgesproken is uitgekomen. Het appartement is op een van de beste lokatie in Salvador en het uitzicht is fenomenaal.
Alle voorzieningen zijn fantastisch. Als je naar Salvador komt en dan moet je hier verblijven...paradijs in Salvador!
Thank you Geert, it was a pleasure to host you. For the few people out there who are not fluent in Dutch, I have taken the liberty of translating your review:
Eamon is a good host. Everything we agreed was released in advance. The apartment is one of the best location in Salvador and the view is phenomenal. All the facilities are fantastic. If you're coming to Salvador and then you must stay here ... paradise in Salvador!
We had a wonderful time at Eamonn's place in Salvador. We rented the 10th floor. It had a fully equipped kitchen, everything we needed to cook breakfast. The flat is as the pictures portray, beautiful! The balcony was a wonderful place to watch the sunset and people watch, we had a perfect view of the lighthouse and the "square" in front of it.
Eamonn was very responsive and helpful as well which was an extra added bonus. He arranged for a taxi to and from the airport which was nice because the driver communicated arrival information with the caretaker. Eamonn has a written a full guide about the house and also emailed other suggestions along with his personal notes and advice about each site/item. This allowed us to make the most of the short time we had in Salvador. Beyond that, Eamonn took the time to answer each question I had about the area/things to do/places to go. He truly went above and beyond - Thanks Eamonn!
The apartment was just amazing and beautiful, the view was just breathtaking. The apartment was very clean and everything was in order. The neighborhood was very nice and safe to walk around , the beach , the lighthouse and the restaurants. Eamonn was very resourceful!!!!!!!! Eamonn apartment is the place to stay in Salvador de Bahia ...

About the Host, Eamonn
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.
