This is a beautifully restored Colonial house in the historic center of Salvador Brazil. The room has it's own balcony with the best view to the Lower City and Bahia de Todos os Santos (bay), in Salvador. We are a short five minute walk to the Pelourinho where all the museums, churches, and famous nightlife can be found. Within seconds of walking outside the house you can find charming cafes, bars, and a small market.
We offer wifi and use of the laundry machine in our price.
We will offer many ideas on what to see and do in Salvador. We know many other places in Bahia as well so will be happy to answer any and all questions. Tell us more about yourselves and we'll do our best to recommend things more specifically to your liking.
Some things to know about the house:
The room is down two flights of stairs so while this means you will have a lot of privacy, please consider the accessibility. Please note that your full private bathroom is also upstairs.
Wifi is available throughout the upstairs but unfortunately doesn't reach your room downstairs.
We have brand new pots and pans! And lots of cooking equipment.
NOISE: Please note that as you have the best view over the port and bay, there is also the associated noise that goes with it. During the summer, there will also occasionally be shows held in stages below the house. While most people are happy for the free shows, some people would prefer more peace and quiet;)
We kindly request that no outside guests are brought into the house during your stay.
No drugs. Smoking ok outside.
Please make sure to pay attention to the wattage throughout the house (110 and 220). Most of our equipment is 110 and will burn up if used in the 220 outlet.
*Please do not put any paper in the toilets. These are old houses, built before toilets were invented:) There are waste baskets in each bathroom.
It's a very nice place to stay in Salvador. Just perfect, because it's very close to Pelourinho, but far enough to not be disturbed by the noises. Christopher and Rafa are very nice hosts, always ready to give some tips where to go out, what to do, etc. Despite of the immense rain while my trip there I spent an incredible time there and with them. I can recommend their place to everyone who wants to visit Salvador!! Thanks!!
The best location next to the Pelourinho in a beautiful, quiet and safe street close to many bars and places where you can enjoy Bahian food, music and atmosphere! The room is big, nice bed, beautiful views over the bay and has lot of privacy. The private bathroom is upstairs and although we didn't use the kitchen, it seemed full equiped. Christopher was very kind on his advices about what to do and where to go, and really quick answering any message! If you 're travelling on a budget, I recommend it 100%!
It was really nice staying at Christopher and Rafa's, they are really cool people and they made my stay really comfortable, Christopher was not there but Rafa helped me a lot giving me directions and suggestions of where to go. The room is really nice, big and a lovely view; it has a lot of privacy. The house is located near Pelourinho so you can get there in like 5 min. Thank you guys :)!
Christopher is a magical person and his apartment is a dreamscape for anyone. The view from our room is spectacular. There is a balcony as well. The room is so big and cozy. We are so lucky to be a guest in his place.
Also, Christopher is an amazing and friendly person. Even before we arrive, he sent a taxi driver and pick us up. Upon arriving, he gave us direction where to go and where to eat and there is a manual of Salvador. He printed us a map as well and where to avoid especially danger zones. We have many friendly conversation. I am just so overwhelming by his generosity.
Thank you so much Christopher for giving us so an amazing experience in Salvador. I hope we will meet again somewhere in the future.
Very lovely place, great area and great hosts. Christopher gave us many tips for our stay in Salvador and his wife even took us to the carneval. It was like staying at a friends house. We were comfortable from the first day on. The description and images correspond. We had a really nice stay, thank you Christopher and Rafaella! We definitely recommend this apartment.
Our stay at Chris and Rafa apartment was great! Room is very big, bright and comfortable. Its very independent and you will get total privacy. Location is superb! Although is not in Pelourinho, but the neighbourhood right next to, for me was even better. Plenty of little local bars, restaurants and shops to explore and walk around.
Rafa was very kind and helpful at all times. Although Chris was out of town and as she remarked "Chris is much better at doing this". She gave me all sort of tips and suggestions, such us where to find best and cheaper havaianas in town or why Gravino's cachaça is the most and best popular in Salvador.
She took good care of us and assured were ok and had everything we need.
Chris was amazing keeping all under control before my arrival. Considering was my first time in Brazil, he offered me all kind of advices (taxi, money exchange, directions etc) He looked after every single detail to make me feel safe and relax.
I'd definitely recommend anyone to stay at Chris and Rafa apartment. I certainly had a very pleasant and comfortable stay.
Without a doubt my next visit to this vibrant, lively and enchanting city of Salvador. I would ask Chris and Rafa to host me again.
Thank you guys!
We stayed at Christopher and Rafaela's place in Salvador for 4 nights and it was a fantastic experience. The location is perfect, close enough to the Pelourinho but far enough away to enjoy the less touristy side of old town Salvador. Rafaela was a great host with some excellent local tips. Plus, the room is huge with a comfortable bed and amazing view - really couldn't ask for more when staying in Salvador!
