Salvador has always been a fun and exciting place to visit and explore. The city center: from the historic center (Pelorinho) to Barra Beach is alive with activity for visitors and my neighborhood is in the heart of it all.

The Space

Colorful and rustic house in a historic street of the center of Salvador, Bahia, Brazil overlooking All Saints Bay, the Marina and the Museum of Modern Art.

I love Salvador especially its African influenced culture.

Colorful room with a double bed & ceiling fan (no air conditioner)
A home in which your privacy & security will be respected and maintained

Upstairs part of house. One flight of stairs.

No kitchen use but that is great news because it gives you the opportunity to taste all the local culinary treats. The even better news is that this is all in walking distance (up the hill): bakeries, shops, inexpensive restaurants, farmers markets. The best restaurants in Salvador are also very close in the Bahia Marina.

The house is also walking distance to Pelorinho (historic center night life and restaurants), theaters, movies, museums, commercial center, laundry facilities and shopping malls. Barra beach is a 15 minute bus ride.

Centrally located so taxis and/or buses to various parts of the city are available.

Salvador is a fun place to discover. I encourage exploring the happenings outside the typical tourist locations (of course go to those as well). Beach; cultural activites; night life; dance, drumming and capoeira classes in the vicinity.

My house is warm, colorful and welcoming but probably what makes my place unique is that I am a cross cultural consultant, African derived cultural and development specialist, human rights and environmental activist and language facilitator therefore I can give you tips on what is happenings in Salvador. I can design specialty tours tailored to your needs (for a fee).

You are searching on so you are more likely to be a traveler than a tourist and wanting a real sense, engagement and exploration of the city and nearby regions. The room in my house is a great place to replenish your energies after exploring and enjoying Salvador

There are three main carnaval circuits in Salvador

I love samba & blocos afro (African heritage groups) so my favorite is the activities in the center circuit --- luckily for me that is just up the hill from where I live.
but I can and do walk to the other circuits from my place
