We had a nice stay in Salvador and loved being in Barra, two steps away from the Sea. While we stayed there, we had a nice glimpse of the pre-Carnaval atmosphere, seeing how Jeanne and her friends were getting ready - lovely! The flat has all basics you will need, could need a little "refresh". If you are not extremely demanding, it we bill perfect for you.
Great, relaxed, spacious, versatile apartment near Barra Beach. Hosts are extremely friendly and helpful. Apartment is basic and rooms can get very hot at night in high season but highly recommended.
I preface this review by saying that the hosts were very nice and responsive in addressing our complaints. I will also acknowledge that we were their first guests of the season. That said, we were not at all pleased with the state of the apartment from a cleanliness perspective. We also felt that the photos misrepresented the fact that the apartment living room faces a loading/parking dock and was quite loud at night. I believe that all of these issues can be rectified for the next guests and trust that the owners have every intention of doing so.
There is indeed a small parking area/open garage in front of our varanda with space for 3 cars, one of which is our space which we never use. The other two cars rarely come and go as our neighbors stay at home most of the time.
In any case, the street is being pedestrianised as I write this so within a short space of time, it should end up being one of the quietest streets in the neighborhood.
Extremely well located spacious apartment in the heart of Barra, Salvador. Very friendly owners, Alexis and his beautiful Brazilian wife, always ready to help! We cannot but reccommend this accommodation in fantastic capital of Bahia! Tonda and friends, Prague, Czech Republic
