Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Eamonn's place is gorgeous and conveniently located in Salvador to many of the tourist spots and some very good restaurants are just a few meters/yards away from the building. The view was incredible at all times of the day and night. The apartment itself is like a palace. The beds are very comfortable and the amenities available to you are convenient and easy to use. If you want to go to other parts of Salvador, just catch a cab close by to the apartment and you'll be on your way. Checking in and out was a breeze and Eamonn's friend Bené was very helpful in making sure things went smoothly. Please note, you'll need to understand and speak basic Portuguese when visiting Salvador, and most parts of Brasil, or else you'll truly experience culture shock.

  • The apartment was fantastic! Modern and newly refurbished, as shown in the photos. Eamonn is a great host, very enthusiastic about Salvador and happy to help in any way that he can. Would definitely recommend!

  • Eamonn is a terrific host and the space is absolutely wonderful. All the amenities were as advertised and we really felt at home. The photos are 100% accurate and yet don't do the space justice. The views are awesome and you are truly steps away from Farol da Barra. Barra is in the middle of everything with great beaches, restaurants & shops a few minutes walk from Eamonn's condo. Itapua, Rio Vermehlo & Pelourinho were also easy & convenient.

    Eamonn was also very courtesy in welcoming us into his home and introducing us to all the features. He makes a great 'welcome capirinha' and was very generous with his time in helping us resolve an issue with our rental car.

    In short, whenever my travels take me to Salvador, I will be giving Eamonn a call!

    Those are just some words to describe this apartment !
    We were 5 friends to stay there. I would love to rate our overall stay even with 7-stars, but unfortunately the maximum here is 5.

    From the very beginning, Eamonn - the host, have shown a very kind service with a communication and with the arrangement of our airport pick-up and check-in. Despite our flight delay for 5 hours and our late night arrival, Eamonn have managed to serve an excellent service..!!

    Apartment it selves - is much more better that on the photos. It's huge, modern, very well equipped and the VIEW from terrace and balcony is just BREATHTAKING..!!
    !! Master bedroom with its bathroom is something very special and romantic.., you should try it yourselves.. :)

    Once again - me and my friends would like to thank a lot Eamonn, the host of the apartment. He is very kind person and have made our short stay in Salvador very comfortable, he gave us a lot of useful tips, he was also in touch like 24h.

    If you are planning a trip to Salvador - don't waste your time for searching an apartment,- just book this magnificent apartment and you will be very much satisfied, like we are..!!!

  • We had a wondrful stay at the apartment.
    The apt itself is beautiful and well equipped, and the area is good .
    Eamonn was extremely helpful with the arrangements - including the ride to and from the airport, settling in, and even recommendations for restaurants in Salvador.
    We wholeheartedly recommend staying here.

  • I am pleased to share my thoughts about my stay in Salvador at the Farol View Barra Luxury Apartment. The photos speak for themselves. The apartment is well maintained with unique design appointments that exemplify a luxury lifestyle, in a subtle manner. Yes, once you enter the apartment and feast on the breathtaking views (equally stunning in both the upper and lower properties) you will no doubt say to yourself “I have arrived”.
    I traveled to Salvador with two other friends for some beach action and a week of scuba diving with the shop directly across from Praia do Barra. What you will immediately notice both from any (website hidden) map and when you arrive is that the apartment is just steps from a huge number of eateries, shops and even a supermarket. This is important because you WILL want to entertain dinner guests in the spacious living and dining room as the sun is chased away by a rising moon.
    Throughout our stay, Eamonn took great care in ensuring we had everything we needed from tips on local restaurants, to letting us know where we could (email hidden) Samba band in Pelourinho. Our comfort was his priority and we certainly appreciated his attention to even the smallest of details (such as how the washer actually functioned- FYI, obtaining a PhD is highly recommended before operating for this unit).
    I cannot wait to return, and strongly recommend this airbnb listing for your next Salvador excursion- disappointment is Impossible! Your expectations will be blown away.

  • Eamonn and David's condo is a beautiful, large space on 3 levels. It is located near the beach and in the best part of Salvador from my perspective. There are fantastic views of the lighthouse, bay and ocean from pretty much every room/patio in the condo. Both Eamonn and David are warm, friendly and extremely helpful. I stayed over New Years and the condo was very active with lots of warm and personable friends stopping by. There also was a lot of activity on the street and, although we were in the penthouse, you can't avoid the noise from the party/concert preparations. If you are looking for complete solitude this might not be the best time of year to stay in this particular place unless you bring earplugs (I never leave home without them). However, most people traveling to Brazil over New Years are looking for a party. If you are seeking a fun place with personable and helpful hosts to hang with over the New Years holiday and throughout the year, then you will be happy with your choice.

    Response from Eamonn:

    Regarding the noise: During preparations for New Year, a temporary stage is set up in front of the Farol, leading to some noise from hammering together the supports. Normally the audible noise is normal traffic, some music on weekend nights and, for the remainder, the waves crashing on the beach!
