The Space

Enjoy the top ocean and lighthouse views from the living-room
of this one-bedroom apartment on the waterfront at Barra Beach.
At sunset you will enjoy a magic view of All Saints Bay.

At New Year’s and Carnaval watch the performances across

The Neighborhood

Barra neighborhood is home to Salvador’s carnaval and some great beaches . Barra is also one of the most traditional neighborhoods of Salvador. Barra's busy waterfront were once three colonial forts. The most impressive today is Bahia's oldest, the polygonal Forte de Santo Antônio da Barra, built in 1598. Known simply as "Farol da Barra" for its lighthouse, the fort houses a small nautical museum. Stay for sunset - Salvador's peninsula is the only place in Brazil where the sun sets over the ocean. Our apartments are just across the street from the Farol.

Getting around

Barra is a residential area in the city center. It is a safe and very convenient location, where you have everything you may need in less than two blocks from the apartments: bars, restaurants, supermarkets, banks, malls, historical buildings, laundromats, etc. To go from Barra to the old town (Pelourinho) or to the beaches north of town, the bus stop is right at the Praiaville building entrance.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Great apartment! Big enough for a couple and you can find there everything you need. It is located in front of the Farol de Barra so the view & location are just perfect to enjoy Salvador. Also, Murilo (email hidden)! Place to stay in Salvador city!

  • Great location and everything just like described. Murilo (email hidden) and Barra is probably the best place to stay in Salvador. The bus stop and the Praia do Porto da Barra are just a few minutes from the apartment and the whole block was in a improvement process, so it's just getting better. Nothing to complain about.

    Ótima localização e tudo correspondia ao descrito no site. Murilo é um ótimo anfitrião e a Barra talvez seja o melhor lugar para ficar em Salvador. A parada de ônibus e a Praia do Porto são bem próximas ao apartamento. Todo o quarteirão estava em processo de reforma, então tudo tende a ficar ainda melhor. Nada a reclamar.

  • For anyone wanting that Salvador seaside holiday this apartment is perfect, with a great view of the lighthouse and in walking distance from all the main streets of Barra, the apartment is just the right size and very comfortable, best though is the sea breeze that cools the place day and night......10/10 can't fault it !!!!

  • Notre hôte Murilo nous a bien pris en charge et nous avons apprécié notre séjour dans son appartement. Murilo est très sympathique et disponible et nous avons beaucoup apprécié ses conseils de visites. Nous recommendons cet appartement qui est très accessible d'un point de vu prix et idéalement situé avec une magnifique vue sur le phare.

  • Great place, right on the starting blocks for Carnavale which is awesome if you're there to dance! Bring earplugs if you want to have a quiet night (but then why would you be at Carnavale?!) Murilo was a fantastic help with bus tickets and extra info. Recommend.

  • The apartment location is great, just steps from Farol de Barra. It has everything you might need for your stay. The bed is comfortable and the fans will cool you if the night gets hot. There's a bus stop a few meters from the apartment that will take you to the Pelourinho or to the beaches on the north east part of the city for just $3 reais. Also there is a convenience store around the block and the nearest beaches are also a few meters away . I highly recommend Murilo and his apartment for any visit to Salvador.

Murilo (Bahia, Brazil) & Celia (Pamplona, Spain) met at the Montreux Jazz Festival (Switzerland) in 2003. We started this business accidentally in 2006 and have been enjoying meeting people from around the world since. Murilo is based in Salvador and is the logistics and hospitality master. He makes sure everything is perfect for your stay. We speak Portuguese, Spanish, French, German and English. We love to travel but even when we are rafting in Central America, hiking in Venezuela, or scuba-diving in the Caribbean, we read our emails every day and get back to every single inquiry!
