Room in Awesome Hood in Barra!

Apartment - Private room · R. Pres. Kennedy, Salvador, Bahia 40130-200, Brazil

The Space

Come stay in the comfort of this cute 3 bedroom apartment in the best neighborhood in Barra!! Barra is a coveted neighborhood for tourists because of its proximity to everything (beach, night life, shopping, Pelourinho, Rio Vermelho); this apartment is in 'Jardim do Chico', a tranquil neighborhood that has no busses (hence tranquil) yet is close enough to beaches (8 minutes to Porto da Barra beach) and other amenities (supermarkets, cafes, restaurants, gym, shopping centers, etc). Although tranquil, there are moments that the activity at the bar across the street can be animated.

The house has wifi, Vonage (make and receive calls to the US), and a very nice washing machine. Bedroom has a full sized bed, fan, desk and tons of closet space. There are 1.5 bathrooms. The apartment is on the 3rd floor, stairs only. The apartment is shared with me and my 4 year old daughter. The kitchen is compact but fully functional with many items brought from the US (cast iron skillet, quality pots and pans, etc.). The refrigerator is from the US and is a god send compared to the normal fridges in these parts!

I know Salvador fairly well (Barra nearly like the back of my hand!). I have studied the music, culture and language of Salvador and the rest of Brazil. I will help you out as much as I can during your stay to make sure you have a good time!!

  • I had a very pleasant stay at Kitty's appartment in Barra. The neighbourhood is quiet, and still it doesn't take much time to get to the most attractive places.
    Kitty is very friendly and helpful. She took me out to samba and gave me several advices about the city and trips around Salvador.

  • It was my first airbnb experience...and I had a very interesting time in Salvador...Kitty & her daughter are very lovely...and I could feel very confortable and relaxed in here home. The apartment is very well (email hidden) is in the middle of the hot spots. The bus stopps not fare from there...and it's 15 minutes on foot to go to the beach barra. Kitty is a very friendly host...and I can recommend this address to you...

About
I am an American woman that fell in love with Salvador, Bahia and decided to sell everything and live here with my daughter, who is half Brazilian (and 4 years old). It is exciting living in a new country and learning to navigate things; what is easy to do at home becomes harder in a new country!! I bought a pre-exisitng real estate agency here in 2011. I am using airbnb as another portal to reach out to clients! More about me....I love music. I was a Dj for many years, and it was Brazilian music that drew me to Salvador. I also love to dance; if you need help finding a good dance class to attend while you are here, I can help with that! I have enjoyed submerging myself in the culture here. I love this town and I love sharing it with other people. I am thisclose to writing a blog about it! So any questions or suggestions you need about Salvador, just ask!! Air b'n'b wants me to tell you the 5 things I can't live without. I'm not good at lists like that! As for my motto (another thing they've asked); be positive and grateful. :)
