Exitos, Exitos y mucho Axe!
Annette is a wonderful host, making me feel very welcome even before I left home. She arranged for a driver to pick me up at the airport to help make my arrival in Salvador smooth and easy. The apartment and my room were comfortable and lovely, and from the start, Annette was always helpful with any of my questions or needs. She is a kind, lovely person who is very knowledgeable about Bahian culture and what to see and do in Salvador. Santo Antonio is a great location to call home in Salvador. It is close enough to walk to Pelourinho (the historic center), but is more residential and a great home base for all your excursions. I highly recommend Annette's place for your stay in Salvador.

Um abraço grande!!. Luzes, paz e realizações divinos!!
Annette was very sweet. There was some communication issue as to when I would get there; but she greeted me with something to drink and lots of information about where to go.
Annette is a wonderful host. her place is a little paradise at the border of historical center of Bahia, just near the San Antonio plaza, where the best Capoeira schools rehearse every day. She will give you thousands of advice of where to go, including where to listen to good music in places you could never find by yourself. Thanks Annette for having made of our few days in Bahia a great moment!
Location is very good. 15 minute walk to heart of pelourhino and 5 minutes to supermarket.
Room was good size and clean and sheets changed every 2 or 3 days. Bathroom/ toilet is tiny and shared between both rooms so if both full it's under configured. Shower doesn't drain because drain in wrong position so water has to be encouraged back uphill after shower. Mosquitos a bit of a problem as no glass in bedroom windows.
Annette is a really lovely person. She takes care of her home. She also takes care of her guests with lots of helpful advice tips and hand drawn maps . I appreciated everything she did for me
Overall I recommend this host and room
Annette was incredibly warm and welcoming. She provided my friend and I great information about the neighborhood and hidden gem restaurants. She also arranged door to door taxi service from the airport. It was a pleasure to stay with her!
Nice place. Annette is very friendly and helpful (suggestions about where to go, and helping with taxis).
15 minute walk from the Pelourinho. Can be a bit noisy at night, but we were OK with that.
