The Space

Welcome to Salvador / Bahia / Barra!

Wonderful spacious and bright apartment directly in front of the ocean and the historic 16 th century lighthouse in Barra (Salvador). You are just on the very top of the peninsula of Salvador with the open Ocean on one side and the calm bay and islands on the other one.

Really the ideal location, right beside the best city beaches, nightlife, and restaurants. The apartment is very tastefully decorated. I try to keep prices very reasonable, so you can rent this wonderful apartment for much less than the going rate for a mid range, lifeless hotel room in the city.

The building has 24 hour secuity with intercom system. The kitchen is fully equipped for up to six people. Bedlinen and towels are provided.

Amenities:
- Smoking Allowed
- TV
- Internet / Wi-Fi
- Elevator
- Kitchen
- Doorman

House rules:
The apartment is entirely yours for the duration of the stay. You are simply asked to respect the peace of the neighbours, and to leave the apartment in the same condition as you find it.

Please, if you have any further information please let me know!
It will be a pleasure to receive your visit!

  • This apartment is perfectly situated across the street from the beach in Barra. You can hear the waves from the balcony! Just be careful to close that balcony door or you may get an uninvited flying friend as I did (nothing to do with Eddie and his place as it was very tidy). Eddie had a taxi waiting for me when I arrived (after midnite). He also arranged to have the same driver pick me up at 1:30 am upon my departure. I really enjoyed my stay and a huge reason is because of this apartment. It was home for 3 weeks and that really makes a huge difference in how you experience your vacations. The place is secured 24 hours and there is a great buffet style restaurant right next door (Empana Brasil).
    Tchao!

  • Appartement très bien situé. Très joli vue sur la mer! Arrêt de bus à proximité.

  • Ok, the appartment was nice. But if we pay a high price, including a cleaning fee, you expect US TO CLEAN the appartment???
    Our flight left 5 in the morning, if we would have had time we would have cleaned, but since we payed for that, of course we did not!! You should have spent the money for a cleaning lady then.
    The place was NOT clean as we entered, by the way and there were NOT enough beds, as was promissed.
    VERY DISSAPPOINTED THAT YOU GIVE BAD COMMENTS AFTERWARDS WITHOUT SAYING ANYTHING.

    Another thing: the kitchen smells like urin, because the bathroom window is towards the kitchen. You should find a solution for that, or CLEAN THE TOILET before people come to the appartment!

    Response from Eddie:

    Strange, you said the apartment was wonderful when you arrived. You also forgot to mention that you broke the ceiling fan. I never saw an apartment so bad after just four days. Disgusting.

  • I had a great week in this apartment in a safe building with 24h doorman. Great location in Barra! Lovely view over the ocean and sunset. Small balcony which is also nice to have. Cafés and restaurants just outside the building. Very close to beaches. Only 1-2 minutes walking either way. The apartment itself is pretty basic, but nice and spacious. Eddie is a helpful and nice host, and check-in and check-out both went smoothly. Recommendable! I would love to stay here again.

  • Staying at Eddies apartment was great. The location is great (you can see the Farol da Barra from the balcony). It has supermarkets, dinner places, beaches (at least 4 you can reach by 10' walk). We enjoyed very much the privacy and the apartment itself. It's spacious for vacation times. Eddie himself is a very friendly man, he trusted me every time. He knows a lot of things to do in Bahia and is happy to transmit his knowledge. Totaly recommendable.
    -----------------------------
    La estadía en el departamento de Eddie fue espectacular. La ubicación es muy buena (se ve el Farol da Barra desde el balcón). Hay supermercados, lugares para cenar, playas (al menos 4 accesibles a 10' de caminata). Disfruté mucho la privacidad y al departamento en si mismo; es muy espacioso para vacacionar. Eddie es una persona muy amistosa, confió en todo momento en mí. Conoce muchas cosas para hacer en Bahía y transmite ese conocimiento alegremente. Totalmente recomendable.

  • Highly recommended. The apartment is right beside the ocean and great beaches, and I think this is probably the best location for to stay in Salvador. The historic centre is nice but too claustrophobic for staying and very hot. This area in Barra is much better, because you have the beaches and the sea breezes. The apartment is a very nice size also, a big bedroom and a big sitting room with veranda. Clean and organised, and the building is nice and has 24 hour security. Also Eddie was most kind, organised a cheap taxi to meet me, and helped me with translations and finding my way around. Thank you.

  • L'appartamento è carino, molto vicino al mare e quindi molto comodo per andare sulla spiaggia fruibile anche d'inverno. L'arredamento è spartano ma comunque permette di stare comodi.

Irish by Birth, and by now, half-Brazilian at heart. I left my job in nuclear physics research some eight years ago to follow my second career as a painter. I now live most of the year in Brazil, but go back to the Irish summer for a few months every year.
