The space

Beautiful modern apartment on two floors with an amazing roof terrace with hammocks, bar, sea view, sun deck and outdoor shower. 5 minutes from the beach and the main carnival route in Barra. The flat has 3 bedrooms, 2 double - both with en suite bathrooms and a third twin bedded room. There is a third bathroom plus two living rooms, one with a double sofa bed. All bedrooms have AC. The downstairs has a large open plan kitchen with breakfast bar. There is Wifi (on all floors) and Cable TV.

We are not just an agency offering apartments to rent, handing you the keys and closing the door – we call our business House Guest Brazil as we want you to feel like house guests in a very special house.

A house where artists and art lovers hang out throughout the year with regular events and performances. A house with special private events with live capoeira, percussion and dance.

We also offer a serviced option including breakfasts, regular cleaning and a stocked bar.

For festival weekends and carnival we do events and receptions on the terrace with capoeira and live drumming. If you are in Salvador celebrating a birthday or anniversary then we can help arrange some music and entertainment on the terrace for you.

Barra is a beautiful residential area about 10 minutes by cab to the old town (Pelourinho). It has 2 great beaches - one on the Atlantic coast with great surf and one on the Bay side with beautiful tranquil waters (Porto do Barra). It's where the main Barra-Ondina carnival route starts and one of the city's main venues for free concerts and events.

The price quoted for renting the whole flat is for up to 4 people with an additional nightly charge for any additional guests. There is a six day minimum stay during carnival (Feb 23 - March 1, 2017) and a 3 day minimum stay at all other times.

Guest access

The whole apartment over two floors. Exclusive access to the private roof top terrace.

Interaction with guests

When I'm in Brazil (Dec to March) I show guests around the local area and help with advice on what's on. When I'm in the UK I send through printed information sheets on where to go in and around Salvador.

Other things to note

The Apolo building is an small old building and does not have a lift. The apartment is on the 3rd and 4th floors and there is no step free access.

The apartment is great! Enjoying the evening breeze on the rooftop patio is how you make the most of this place. The apartment is a short ride from food, shopping, beaches and more.

Eddys and Paul's apartament is really good. It's located into the main circuit and close to several comercial points such us markets, restaurants and malls. The rooftop is just great. The apartament has everything you need to have an amazing time in Salvador! Additionally they had helped us with several items of the logistics and were always available to give information about the city. I totally recomend Eddys and Paul's place and have no enough words to thank their hospitality.

Paul and Eddy's place is wonderful. Located in the heart of Barra, it's a five minute walk to the beach, to supermarkets, to bars and restaurants. The apartment is a gem, the rooftop terrace is amazing. Everything was clean and worked perfectly. Paul and Eddy were amazing hosts that went out of their way to ensure we had a great stay. We will recommend this place to all our friends!!!

A Home away from Home, I've travels to many places in Hotels for years. Airbnb travel is my personal choice. My first time ever using the suggested site to Paul's place in Salvador Bahia was amazing, comfortable, and supportive. Transportation, Activities, Dinning along with helpful guides to navigate safe travel during my stay was awesome.

Paul and his manager Felipe were very good hosts, although I did not meet Paul on our visit. The apartment is in a good location although you have to trudge up a pretty steep hill to reach it every day. Felipe was very kind and helpful with suggestions and assisted us with booking a last minute trip to visit some outlying beaches while we were there with a private driver. Furthermore, their porter Dario was also very helpful by accepting and signing for a package that I was expecting before I returned home. The apartment is spacious and the rooftop terrace is a wonderful place to hang out and enjoy the natural breeze. As others have posted, the unit could benefit with A/C units in both living rooms on the lower and upper level, which do get hot. We were a little surprised with the amount of deferred maintenance with the unit. There were a number of relatively small issues that need to be addressed by the host such as: loose faucets and fixtures and towel hanger in upstairs bathroom, downstairs fan didn't work, cable remote not working or needs battery, stereo in the upstairs living area not working, wifi extremely slow when it did work, exposed wiring with shower water heater in the lower bathroom among others. In addition, they forgot to stock the unit with extra trash bags and toilet paper so after we emptied trash during the middle of our stay as requested in the house rules, we didn't have a proper bag to throw the remaining trash in. And we ran out of toilet paper on our last day as well. To be fair, we did not ask the host or Felipe to take care of any of these issues while we were there as we only stayed for 4 days and didn't want to be bothered. Most of these items are easy and quick fixes and based on my online interactions with the host and actual interactions with Felipe, I believe that they will address all of these items for the next traveler.

Response from Paul And Eddy:
Thanks for the feedback Mark and yes we have sorted the smaller maintenance items now. I am in the UK so unless guests tell me, its impossible to put these things right so that was very helpful. Paul

Paul was very welcoming and sweet upon arrival. Large space in a great location and the rooftop terrace was a bonus! The place can get a bit hot as there are A/C units only in the bedrooms.

Paul And Eddy User ProfilePaul And Eddy is a superhost.

English/Brazilian couple who split their time between Brighton and Salvador. When we are in Brazil (usually December through til March) and in Brighton (usually May to August) we do hosted bed and breakfasts - by hosted we mean you're treated as a house guest rather than someone staying in a guest house - you can come with us to concerts and events and join us for drinks on the terrace or in the garden. We do events and receptions for the bigger festival events like Yemanja, Carnival and New Year's Eve in Salvador and Brighton Festival and Pride in Brighton. Happy to introduce you to local friends and try to make your stay as great as possible. Salvador and Brighton are both amazing cities and everyone is very friendly but, like everywhere, you get more out of your stay if you stay with someone who knows the city. You are also welcome to just do your own thing or hang out on the terrace or in the garden. We have a large network of friends and contacts involved in music, arts and dance in both cities. When neither of us is here we rent the flats out as self catering units but still more than happy to advise on local information, where to go and put you in contact with some local friends.
