Interaction with Guests
If you rent the entire apt, I am not around but offer guidance beforehand. I am usually home if the guests rents the room. I like to show them around and tell them where to go or what to do. I am pretty social and mosts times that I cook, I offer my food to guests as well. My guests ends up becoming friends.
Rio Vermelho is one of the safer neighborhoods in Salvador and has the Bohemia feel, which is one of the things I love about living here. The nightlife usually takes place in Rio Vermelho, but don't worry the apartment is in a quiet location.
My location is conveniently located to the bus stop and taxi stand. Walking distance to the local bars and clubs.
