About this listing
My apartment makes a GREAT carnival headquarters. It has a GROUND ZERO location at the start of the carnival circuit on the city's main square in Campo Grande. Step out the front door and step right into the middle of the party!
This is a comfortable, two bedroom, two bath apartment, roughly 100m2 in size.
The apartment has spectacular panoramic bay views and (partial) carnival circuit views from the living room and bedroom.
This is my home here in Salvador, but I offer it as a rental for Carnival, so the space is always well maintained and the "living is easy";
-Both beds have comfortable high quality mattresses, pillows, sheets to ensure a good nights sleep.
-The apartment is equipped with a high speed wi-fi internet connection (50 MEG).
-Quality sounds systems are provided in the master bedroom & living room.
-There is a 32 inch HDTV with a SKY TV satellite connection (with international programming) in the master bedroom
You get the whole apartment. Enjoy!
Interaction with Guests
I will get you checked in and oriented to the apartment, the neighborhood, and the carnival party.
If you need help buying Carnival Tickets (abadas) for the various Carnival Blocos and Camarotes, I can help you with that. I run a carnival related business, Salvador Carnival Guide, that provides this service.
Campo Grande, where the apartment is located, is one of the city's better neighborhoods. Here one finds the city's main square, the city's main concert hall, and the famous Hotel da Bahia (Sheraton).
It’s GROUND ZERO location for Carnival. The Campo Grande Carnival Circuit starts right outside the building’s front door and the city's main square is one of the best places in the city to catch all the carnival action.
Access to and from anywhere in city is easy. Public transportation can be found within short walking distance of the apartment.
The city's other two principal Carnival circuits, the Barra/Ondina circuit and the Pelourinho/Historic Center circuit are either a short taxi ride away or about 20+ minute on foot, if you prefer to walk.
We had a GREAT stay at Daniel's apartment in Salvador. From the time I made the reservation (6 months in advance for World Cup), he was extremely helpful in providing information about the area, sending us info about World Cup events etc... He arranged a taxi from the airport to his apartment, and was there to greet us and help us find our way around the neighborhood. The apartment was very comfortable and the location was great with a beautiful park across the street and many stores, restaurants within walking distance.
Daniel and the Mansao do Jardim were amazing. He helped set us up w/ rides from/to the airport, helped familiarize us with the neighborhood, gave us recommendations, etc. He took one of our party's members out for dinner and walked him around before the rest of us arrived just because he's a nice dude. Apt was clean and spacious and easily accommodated our group (4-6 people). Walking distance to both the stadium (~20-30 mins) and the fan zone/Barra beach (~20-30 mins, opposite direction). Appliances all worked, bathrooms were clean and orderly. Neighborhood seemed reasonably safe and provides more of a local flavor (ie. not many tourists gawking around). Not a ton of restaurants etc immediately outside but plenty within easy walking distance. Big thanks again Daniel!!!

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.
