Located directly in front of the Lighthouse in Barra , this one bedroomed apartment overlooks a protected nature reserve. The building is located right in front of the ocean so its well ventilated with sea breezes. The ocean is literally 15 meters from the building with a 3 minutes walk to the Porto da Barra beach - voted in the top three urban beaches in the world. A very comfortable apartment right in front of the most important landmark in Salvador , located right on the tip of the peninsula of Salvador , beside the best beaches , nightlife , restaurants and shops . Carnaval passes in front of the building , and the huge new year party takes place right in front of the building . Carnaval and New Year and world cup prices are different - please ask for a quote .

  • Eddie was a great host, apartment was in a great location, although basic was clean and well maintained.

  • Eddie was awesome, the place was exactly how it seemed in the listing and a great location! Right by the water and exactly what we were looking for in our stay.
    Eddie ordered a taxi both to and from the airport for us and came and hung out with us to tell us all about the city. Great host.
    Would definitely stay here again.

  • Had a great time in Salvador. Eddie was excellent to work with, he was prompt in his communication, flexible and helpful. The apartment is clean and functional, you have everything you need for an enjoyable stay.

    The views from the apartment are great. Out the front you see the lighthouse and all the activity on the bay, out the back is a beautiful rainforest view. I never got tired of looking at either of them, simply wonderful.

    Salvador is undergoing a major revitalisation and when you stay in Eddie's apartment you really benefit from this. There are now pedestrian zones all along the shore so not only can you enjoy the beautiful beaches (swimming and very good snorkelling), you now have a pleasant environment to walk and enjoy the sights and all the activity (people selling things, music etc etc).

    Barra is full of restaurants, bars and other services and with the revitalisation of the area, this will just get better and better. Salvador is a very interesting and historic city with great beaches and Eddie's apartment is the ideal place to stay to enjoy it all. I can't wait to return and would highly recommend the apartment.

  • Eddie might as well be the Mayor of Salvador cuz he's the man down there. Sorted us out amazingly no matter what we needed, whether it be taxis, boat tours or just the general lay of the land and where to go. Ran into him several times while we were around the city and he was always awesome and helpful. Really made the stay a pleasure and an easy trip, which is even more impressive considering the madness that the World Cup brought to the place. Can't recommend him enough.

  • Location of this place is great. But that's the only thing to this place.
    The place has been left as a dungeon for the past century. The bed was flat as a sheet of paper. You could feel all the wooden beams of the bed.
    Also no wifi. Again, NO WIFI!
    The place is kept very clean. The host sends someone every day or 2 to clean, so even though you share the apt is kept clean. He also has a don't ask don't tell policy, so ask all questions before booking. Again, the location is the best, but not all worth it.

    Response from Eddie:

    WiFi was never promised. If you had said about the bed before, instead of after, then it would have been remedied right away. Not a very nice guest all in all.

  • We have no complaints about this place. Great location in the heart of barra, 3 min walk to the World Cup fanfest down at the beach, safe building with 24 hour doorman, and views to kill for. Eddie was a great host who spent half a day touring us around barra and showing us some sights. He was always available when needed. Our favorite part of the apartment was definitely the balcony with the ocean views. We would come home from a night out in Salvador and spend the next hour or two just hanging out and listening to the ocean. We slept with the balcony doors open all night, and had no issues with bugs or noise. This is a great place, and I recommend it to anyone looking to stay close to the beach in the barra area of Salvador.

  • Appartememt idéalement situé près de l'océan et du phare de Barra. Eddie nous a également organisé nos transports de et vers l'aéroport, ce qui est très agréable. Le wifi fonctionne sans problème et l'appartement, s'il mériterait un meilleure agencement, est fonctionnel. Globalement un très bon séjour et merci a Eddie !

  • Eddie was good to deal with and is a good communicator. The place was as advertised and Eddie gave us some good advice.

  • We had a really good time in Bahia. Eddie took care of us directly after we landed at the airport and was always available if needed. Highly recommanded in Bahia ;) See you for the next World Cup!

Irish by Birth, and by now, half-Brazilian at heart. I left my job in nuclear physics research some eight years ago to follow my second career as a painter. I now live most of the year in Brazil, but go back to the Irish summer for a few months every year.
