The Space

This oceanfront apartment facing the Barra Lighthouse and the All Saints Bay will make your stay in Salvador unforgettable. You will have some of the most desirable views in town, especially at sunset, where people gather at the Lighthouse to see the sun go down. The place is so close to the water that you can hear the sound of the waves from your bed!!

We just bought this unit and has been fully refurbished this summer (2012)

This is a top location (see the pics, the building is pointed at with a red arrow). Beachfront, meters away from Oceanica Beach and Porto de Barra Beach, 100ms away from the Barra Farol (Lighthouse), Salvador's landmark. The bus stop is at the door, the building is located in the center of the avenida, any convenience or amenity you wish for (bank, hairdresser, bar, supermarket, etc) is just around the corner.

If you spend New Year’s or Carnaval you will see the parade with the trios passing under the balcony and live performances taking place right at the Farol. The apartment is spacious, bright, airy, comfortable, and tastefully furnished.

Top features:
** Amazing sea views;
** Balcony facing the sea;
** Fully equipped kitchen;
** Completely renovated in July 2012;
** Sleeps 4 people (Double bed and Sofa-bed);
** Two ceiling fans (Bedroom + Living room);

We pride ourselves in having the most competitive rates and guest service. The rate you see online applies all year through with the exception of Carnaval and New Year. It is the rule in Salvador to make packages for these dates. We have a special 10-day amd 7-day package for Carnaval and New Year respectively. Each package contains the peak holidays but you set the starting/end date at your convenience. Send us a message for the package pricing.

This apartment has optional AC. If you decide to use it during your stay we will charge you the electricity cost at check-out (You can see yourself the difference in the meter between check-in and check-out). This is general practice in Brazil.

Interaction with Guests

We are based in Barra to help you with everything you need to make your stay perfect.

The Neighborhood

The 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.

Other Things to Note

On demand we offer airport pick-up. We have also a parking place available in the building to let.
This place has optional AC. That means that the electricity cost comes on top.

  • Murilo was an amazing host. He arranged a taxi to pick my friends and me up from the airport in Salvador and the ride to the apartment was lovely. The apartment itself was neat, clean, comfortable and INCREDIBLY well located in the Barra neighborhood just two steps away from the beach. Murilo also helped us by giving us recommendations on where to find good food and people. I loved our visit to Salvador and Murilo made it very easy for us. He is a very friendly person and a joy to be around. Even though the World Cup made things very busy for him, he found the time to chat with us and make sure everything we never ran into any trouble with the apartment.

  • The apartment is more spacious than the pictures suggest and the view is just as good! We had a problem with the shower but Murilo was quick to come round and fix it, even though this was a very busy time during the world cup. There are some really excellent restaurants along the beach if you walk past the lighthouse and the area was lively and felt safe at night.

  • Great apartment in a fantastic location right on the beach! We had such a good time here, wish our stay was longer! Murilo was very easy to organise with and provided extremely fast responses to any question. Definitely recommend this place.

  • Hübsches gut erhaltenes Appartement im 2 Stock eines etwas zurückversetzten Hauses mit phantastischer 90° Sicht auf den Leuchtturm Farol da Barra. Die zurückversetzte Lage verhindert zwar eine 180°-Aussicht, schützt aber vor der nachmittäglichen Sonne. Gute Busverbindung zum Flughafen und in die historische Altstadt (Buslinie S002). Sehr nette und hilfsbereite Gastgeber, mit denen in englisch kommuniziert werden kann.

    Nice appartement with a phantastic 90° view to the lighthouse Farol da Barra. The house is in a remote location that avoids a 180° view but protects against the heating afternoon sun. Good bus connection to the airport and the historic district (S002). Very kind and helpful hosts, communicating in english.

  • The description and photos of this apartment capture it precisely. There are a few beaches in easy walking distance. The supermarket is around the corner. A very cheap buffet restaurant is next door. Unfortunately, the entire reason for booking here was to be in walking distance to the New Year's Eve party which is normally held at the Barra Lighthouse (100-200 metres walk away). Unfortunately, there are significant roadworks being undertaken in the area which meant the New Year's eve event was cancelled. Whilst the construction did not interfere too much, it is important to be aware of this. It is likely to continue until at least the World Cup. The most breathtaking sunsets can be enjoyed without leaving the apartment. Thanks to Murilo for a wonderful location for enjoying the fascinating city of Salvador.

  • Murilo & Celia are very friendly.
    They provided everything as described and even more.
    When we decided to stay 1night longer it was no problem either.
    (this will off course depend on the availability of the place)

  • L'appartement est idéalement situé, face à la mer et à quelques mètres à pied de la plage. Appartement propre et conforme aux photos. wifi disponible.
    Le quartier est agréable et c'est très facile de se rendre au Pelourinho en prenant le bus dont l'arrêt est situé pas lojn de l'immeuble.
    Murilo est très gentil, répondant rapidement à tous les messages que nous lui avons envoyé et nous donnant pleins de conseils pendant notre séjour.
    Je recommande cet appartement sans hésiter.

  • La estancia en el apartamento de Murilo fue excelente.

    El apartamento es espectacular, igual que en las fotos, con todo lo necesario para pasar unos días fantásticos en Salvador, limpio y ordenado y con unas vistas espectaculares, del mar y del Faro de Barra. Zona tranquila y segura, con supermercado, restaurantes, parada de autobus, parada de taxis...y proxima al centro histórico.

    Murilo es un gran anfitrión, dispuesto a ayudar, amable y atento.

    Muy recomendable.

    Espero volver pronto.

    Nota 10.

  • Nous avons été très bien accueilli, l'immeuble est très bien placé (à proximité des plages, restaurants, shopping, supermarché, banques...). Le quartier est agréable (séjour durant le mois de d'août 2013). L'appartement rénové était propre à notre arrivé, wifi ok. Murilo est un hôte très sympathique, je recommande cet appartement sans hésitation et n'hésiterai pas à revenir!

  • Super séjour à Salvador, dans l'appart de Murilo! Face à la mer (on entendait le bruit des vagues la nuit!) :) Murilo a été trèèèèès gentil, nous donnant des tas d'informations pratiques. Un plus: le chauffeur de taxi qui est dans l'immeuble, qui évite de téléphoner pour commander un taxi..

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!
