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.
Annette m'a reçu avec beaucoup d'attention. C'est une hôte qui sait rendre le séjour de ses invités très agréable et convivial. J'ai été charmé par le quartier de Santo Antonio, très animé et coloré. Les habitants y sont très sympa et accueillants.
I highly recommend to stay at annette's house. She is a lovely person, has great recommendations for places to go in salvador and her house is very clean and spaceous. I felt very save and well at her house.
We had a wonderful time visiting Salvador thanks to Annette. The place was nice and clean and Annette is a wonderful host. The location is perfect. Salvador is a city full de music and dance so be prepared to embrace this. We had the chance to enjoy a Gilberto Gil concert! The pelourinho, the historic neighborhood is just few minutes from the apt. From there you can discover most of the city.
Many blessings Annette.

Annette was wonderful. A kind person who deserve to be known.
She knows very well how to welcome guests. She made us feel at ease in her beautiful home. It's a very tipical Bahian house, colorful and full of joy and smiles. You have all the ground floor free for you. Annette is living just upstairs. So you have the independance you need.
Annette is very flexible. She organised the airport transfert for us and welcomed us even we arrived very late during the night and said good by to us very early in the morning.
She has a lot of good tips to share. She helped us prepare our days trips. We really enjoyed going around all the city, walking and taking local buses to great very tipical places she recommended us. We feel like we discovered all the city off beaten road.
We were nostalgic to leave so early... Already eager to come back!
