Interaction with Guests
I live here in Salvador and I will get you checked in on arrival and oriented to the apartment, neighborhood, and city. After check-in, if you would like to get to know the neighborhood, I can take you for a walk through Pelourinho and show you the area.
Pelourinho is the heart of Salvador famed historic center. Salvador was the first capital of Brazil and Pelourinho, with it's cobblestone streets and colorful colonial houses, is the city's cultural, historical, and artistic soul.
Pelourinho has an active nightlife with many bars, restaurants, and squares with live music.
Pelourinho's principal bus hub is a short two block walk from apartment. Here one can catch buses to just about anywhere in the city, from the city center's best beach at the Porto da Barra (15 mintues) to all the way to the airport (1 hr).
Daniel's apartment is a great location for exploring the Centro district t. He met us at the curb, showed us the building access and how to operate everything in the apartment. He gave us the rundown on the attractions in the vicinity and recommendations on the local beaches. He was available by both landline and cell for any questions or assistance. I highly recommend this location and host.
Fantastic staying in Daniel's place. He was a star and showed us around the Pelhourino town and gave us lots of tips regarding restaurants, bars and nightlife. The flat has an amazing view on the harbour and the church. Close to all amenities, shops and the Lacerda elevator... Thank you again Daniel.
We had wonderful days at Salvador the apartment has the best location to discover the city. The flat is really big with a great view of the haven and the sea. Highly recommend this place.
Overall I was very pleased with renting this beautiful apartment as the planning and communication with Daniel before and during my trip, was very useful and efficient which made me confident in the quality of my future stay. Daniel is super friendly and easy going. He gave us plenty of information and tips on what to do in Salvador even a tour at downtown although we arrived at night. The building is very secure, it is placed in a commercial area in downtown with all the main cultural attraction in a walking distance, churchs, museums, restaurants, pubs, I loved Puelorino! The flat itself is huge for a couple and includes everything that someone would need for a trip and more, including some spectacular views of the bahia and the Palacio Río Branco. I can not fault anything, just positive things. I would definitely recommend this flat for anyone travelling to Salvador do Bahia. If I will go back to Salvador, I hope to stay here again!!
Daniel was a great host. He greeted us at the apartment which was very clean and felt safe there too. He then showed us around the area, pointed out the best places to eat and told us about the history of the area. The area of Salvador is beautiful and to get the the hustle and bustle is only a 3 minute stroll away. After the initial meeting with Daniel, we did not need to contact him again but he made it very clear that if we had any questions or problems then he would be easily accessible.
As a group of six, we made arrangements to stay at Themis Two for the World Cup well in advance. Daniel always promptly replied to our questions and provided helpful information prior to our arrival (I was impressed by his organization and thoroughness). He also arranged for an airport taxi pick-up and was at the apartment waiting for us when we arrived. Daniel went above and beyond to make us feel welcome and comfortable. He even took the time to walk around the historic town and point out his recommendations. One of his recommendations (near the church of nosso senhor do Bonfim) was our favorite lunch in Salvador! The apartment is clean and very close to the historic center. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and appreciate all that Daniel did for us!

About the Host, Daniel
Hi, I'm Daniel, an American ex-pat from the San Francisco/Bay Area who has been living here in Salvador da Bahia, Brazil for over 15 years. I came down here on vacation, fell in love with the place, and ended up moving down here (watch out, it can happen to you too!). To pay the bills, I own, manage, and book vacation rental properties apartments. I'm also licensed to practice real estate agent in Brazil (Cresci #08864) in case you are also looking to buy.
Hope to see you here soon : )
