About This Listing
This is one of the most beautiful places on the planet with 7,000m2 of coconut trees beside the sea on a magical beach. It is a truly peaceful place. The beach is unspoilt natural beauty and great for long walks, surfing and kite surfing. You may see a few people wander past on the beach - if you're lucky. Just a few days in this fabulous location will recharge your batteries and erase any stress from your life.
The property is situated in a gated community called Condominio de Buscavida. It is a large community stretching inland from the beach. With a 4* hotel and a spa nearby.
Just 15 minutes from the airport by car and 20 minutes from the historical centre of Salvador, you are far enough away from the hustle and bustle to be able to relax and enjoy the peace and quiet but close enough to culture and great restaurants. There is plenty to do - or not, that's up to you.
Bahía's climate is temperate with only a variance of 5ºc difference between winter and summer. However, we do advise a light jacket for taking to restaurants as they tend to have the AC on cold. Also evenings on the beach can be fresh because of the sea breeze.
Don't think twice, come to Brazil and relax.
No smoking inside the houses.
Pets are subject to approval from us.
Please lock all doors when going out.
Please do not litter the beach.
Please remember to lock the beach gate when coming back in from the beach.
Lucy's place outside of Salvador was absolutely perfect. We stayed there after 2 weeks of traveling for the World Cup and it was exactly what we needed. The house is very safe, private and quiet, the onsite concierge and maid were there daily and were very helpful. We would recommend this for anyone looking for a relaxing vacation!
A começar pela Lucy, dona da casa, foi incrivelmente simpática e nos tirou todas as dúvidas com antecedência. Fomos recepcionados pelo Vicente (caseiro) que nos ajudou em tudo que precisamos e esteve sempre disposto a nos dar dicas de onde fazer compras, praia, restaurantes e etc. Já a casa, é incrível, de frente para o mar. Se cansar do mar, não tem problema, tem a piscina de frente para o mar. Realmente um lugar privado e para descansar. Valeu a pena!
Estadia inesquecível! A casa possui uma ótima estrutura e localização! A praia em frente a casa é limpa e não fica cheia, pois o acesso é por dentro do condomínio.
Casa totalmente equipada: toalhas, lençóis, utensílios de cozinha.
Vale muito a pena!
The beach and the house are beautiful as the pictures show. If you want to stay in a quiet place by the sea, this is the right place. It is located just 8 km from the airport and it is quite easy to get there, just follow Lucy`s indication ;) You will love to wake up, open the window and go walk at the beach. The house offers a good structure and it is equipped with everything needed for your stay. The person who works there and takes care of the place, helped us in everything we need. We enjoyed our 3 days and wish to go back for sure.
The property was beautiful and Lucy (owner) and Vicente (on-site concierge) were great to deal with. Lucy was super responsive and provided great recommendations in the area and Vicente was a great host on site.
The whole property was in fantastic condition, and was the perfect place for 3 couples to stay together for a chill vacation on a gorgeous beach. The ocean in front of the house was perfect for boogie boarding and surfing (for experienced surfers). The pool was beautiful and overlooks the nearly deserted beach.
There kitchen is fully stocked with tools and is a great place to cook (or select the option of hiring a cook for the week, which is a great way to go). Meals on the patio and in the dining room have gorgeous views of the ocean.
Salvador is about a 45 minute drive from the property, but there are plenty of restaurants in Lauro de Freitas, which is a 10 minute drive.
We would absolutely recommend the property to anyone looking for a chill beach vacation a bit off the beaten path, and we hope to be back sometime soon.
We had a splendid stay at the house. The house itself is spacious and has all the utensils needed to a comfort stay, as well as good infrastructure maintenance. Also has an amazing view of the beach and the ocean what provided every morning a pleasant breakfast with a unique view. The house is close to Salvador Airport and to groceries stores.
The most positive fact in the surroundings is the quality of the beach: calm, peaceful, clean, good sand… etc.
The house staff: a keeper and a maid were very receptive and worked with pleasure to enrich our stay…. Not to tell the wonderful local meals that she prepared.
We recommend the house for all purposes: relaxing or for the ones travelling to enjoy carnival.
Our stay at the villa was fantastic from start to end. We want to thank Lucy for all the care she put in and for being so quick with all the communication.
Definitely recommend this place to scape from the noise and everyday thoughts and be transported right into paradise, we wanted our time away and for ourselves, but needed to be near Salvador, and we got it! The pictures do a good job describing this place but the air and the immense ocean by that big desserted beach outscore them.
It was easy and quick to get to the villa from the airport of Bahia, where we rented a car, and good that we didn't have to go through the city traffic. Easy access, very clean and well prepared, we started by a long walk by the ocean and then just relax.
If you like cooking as we do this is also the place to exercise. There are fisherman villages nearby where to buy great just caught fish. Unfortunately we didn't have the time to cook much this time, but the local markets are a must in all our trips and we enjoyed this area.
It was my second time in Salvador and i highly recommend the city and Lucy's place.
