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.
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.
For carnival (Feb 3-10, 2016) I do a minimum 6 day package
The upstairs lounge and terrace has a music system with cables for i-pods. Please respect the neighbours and make sure you don't play music loudly after midnight.
We try to make sure the apartment feels like a home from home - and we expect you to treat it like your home. That means leaving the apartment as you find it - clean and tidy. If you would like additional cleaning services during your stay then please let us know and we can arrange that for you.

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.
