About this listing

A magic place... surrounded by nature... and the colors of Bahia...

The space

Beautiful house Itapua beach

Vila Urquiza was built by New York based artist Nicolas Urquiza.

Located in a beautiful area on the city of Salvador, between the National Abaete Park, and one of the most beautiful beaches of Salvador, Itapua.
Where famous Brazilian artists as Vinicious De Moraes, Jorge Amado, Carlos Bastos, Calazans Neto in between others found their inspiration in it, building their fantastic homes.

The area is surrounded by magic, history, and a peaceful neighborhood mixed of "old Bahian Aristocracy" and "Fisherman Village"...
Vila Urquiza was years ago, home of a religious temple, where people from all over town would come to dance, pray, sing and celebrate the joy of life.

The house keeps the vibe of the place, simple, elegant, with vibrant colors and walls that safeguard the privacy of our guests...
Decorated with elements from local artisans, and a fun collection of international art work...

Enjoy your trip...
Itapua is Fantastic!

Our stay at Nicolas's house was nothing short of fantastic! The home was better than the pictures and the description, really a very special place! My wife and I are superhosts on Airbnb, and we stay all over the world in different homes. This house is on the very top of our list of places we will never forget! The location was super, a very sort walk to the beach and shopping. The home was warm and welcoming, the decor super cool and the whole house had a very relaxing and stress free vibe. Kitchen was very well equipped, the bedrooms comfortable, but the pool was a super hit! Yes, this house has its own pool, very clean and relaxing. We would recommend this home to everyone. Nicolas was a great host, super responsive and communicated quickly and is a very nice person too! Thanks for letting us stay in your home!
