Annette is a lovely host and has a small but sweet home. Downside noisy in the neighbourhood and toilet/shower in same space so you have to mop & dry the floor everytime. Upside: House cleaned every two days, our beds made for us, drinking water & toilet paper provided. Close to plaza with sea view for the glorious sunsets, there is a church on the plaza ( every Tuesday open mass) and the Capoeira centre in the Santo Antonio old Fort with lots of classes. The plaza has exercise machines and plenty seats plus often music and food stalls. Was walking distance to shops and the centre - but very cobbly and steep, so trainers/walking shoes recommended and does help you to develop strong legs & a firm bum!. Annette was very helpful in arranging transport to and from airport, showing us where places were & giving us suggestions where safe to walk and where to shop. On arrival she provided a huge bowl of fruit and on leaving a gift for each guest which was very sweet.

Great stay at Annette, very charming house and nice decor. The place is ideally located, walking distance (5-10mn) to Pelourinho (historical centre). Good value for money and great experience in Salvador de Bahia!

Salvador is a really special city and Annette is a caring guest,as is her housekeeper Michele who has been very nice to us all the time. She makes amazing juices also!The girl living upstairs in the house is a kind person and helped us knowing what to do to enjoy the stay at maximum.Unfortunately Annette was abroad and we could not meet her but she also helped us much with the arrival and the commodities. She told us what places and events we should not miss ans she was definitely right !

Annette's place is very pretty, decorated with real care and love. She is incredibly welcoming and helpful. Sitting down with us and talking through Salvador and the different cultural and gastronomic highlights and less known possibilities. It can be a little noisier at the weekends so earplugs are good but this is more than cancelled out by the warmth and helpfulness of Annette. She presented us with gifts of fruit, eggs, gorgeous fresh juices and help booking events throughout our trip. A wonderful stay. Meeting Annette meant we had a much richer experience of Salvador than we might have had. Thank you Annette.

Annette made me feel very welcome , giving me information about where to go what to see, etc. Unfortunately I had to cancel my booking as the noise levels proved too much for me. The house is located opposite a bar and the streets are so narrow that noise echoes.

I am danish, living year in Salvador since 2001, studying dance, choreography, music and the Afro-Brazilian culture; especially themes connected to the Afro-Brazililan religion Candomblé.
I am an educated Physiotherapist, working with concepts of Holistic Body Therapy, Energy Work, Healing and Personal Development.
In Salvador integrated in the worlds of research and musical performing of traditional and popular art expressions like Maracatú and more. In between the art of dance colors and music I have created constructions of instrument art in the for of colorful Xequeres and art peaces.
While living in the organic vibration of Bahia and Salvador I am enjoying having the chance to share my space and the rich, rich culture here with all of you passing by in my space being the bridge in between.
With blessings!!
Much bright light, magic and brilliant sunshine!
