About this listing
This open, unique and comfortable loft is a downtown luxury. It has a special private feel to it that makes the hustle and bustle of the city center worth it all. Enjoy my home, the terrace, Bahian sunrise and sunset, plants and views of the sea.
This centrally located upper floor loft apartment with well equipped kitchen overlooks All Saints Bay.
It has one big bedroom with a large terrace for watching sunsets, lying in a hammock or sunbathing. Its charming windows have views of Elevador Lacerda and Forte São Marcelo, and even Bomfim Church can be seen from a distance.

Largo Dois de Julho is a downtown, working class neighborhood with a lot of local flair. There are many outdoor neighborhood type barzinhos, markets and restaurants.
I am from the US but have lived in Brazil for many years. I am a history and English teacher. I love the beach, going for walks, reading, listening to music, cooking, traveling and hanging out with friends. I used to own and run two crepe restaurants here in Salvador. I teach Middle School full time in Salvador. I have two Portuguese Water Dogs and a Westie.
Wireless internet and cable TV. Washing machine available downstairs.
I am usually working a lot, but I will help you out and answer your questions when I can.
Dois de Julho is a busy, downtown neighborhood with bars, restaurants, schools, cultural sites and historical buildings. It has a lot of local character and charm. During the daytime, you can easily visit malls, markets and restaurants, get to bus routes, several popular tourist destinations including Pelourinho. However, please be careful at night. It is NOT safe to walk home from Pelourinho, a busy tourist area. Pelourinho is Salvador's main tourist attraction, but it has some very sketchy, unsafe surroundings. TAKE A TAXI.
Take airport bus to Praça da Sé and get off a few stops before at Praça Piedade. There are many bus routes nearby, but walking around Dois de Julho is a cultural experience by itself. Barra beaches are 10-15 minute bus ride away. TAKE TAXIS WHEN COMING HOME AT NIGHT!!!
Do not walk home from Pelourinho at night!!!
If I am not around, please give my plants some water.
Fully furnished one bedroom loft with kitchen, wireless internet and cable TV.
