About this listing
This breezy room has tons of sunlight, along with two hammocks and a simple bed setup. Here, you'll enjoy being close to the tourist center of Salvador, while coming back to a calm, cultural and historic neighborhood. Take a look!
On the left you'll see the hallway leading to the dining area, kitchen, and 1st floor patio.
Welcome! This is our sunroom, the more informal of three spaces available for rent in the house. There are two hammocks and two mattresses. The house has a huge roof deck available for everyone to enjoy, as well as two other outdoor areas!
**Note: Please message me before requesting a reservation so I can answer all your questions!**
Here, your rent will include all utilities and household expenses, including high speed internet. Use of the washing machine is available for an additional contribution.
Here's the deal: the apartment is three floors. On the first floor is a suite, the second has two bedrooms, and the third is the covered roof deck - breezy and beautiful! Let's start there: from the terrace you'll enjoy a great view of the city, and can use the washing machine and grill. You can also hang, have dinner, stretch, exercise, knock yourself out!
On the second floor, there is a private room, the sunroom, and a bathroom. There is a great cross breeze and beautiful light throughout the day.
On the first floor, The kitchen is decked out with all the pots, pans and utensils you'll need. Fridge space and shelf space, too! If you're not into cooking, you'll still love the big kitchen table in the dining area.
The outdoor spaces are also really special. One small patio area opens out from the first floor, and is home to the washing machine, two bathrooms and a little garden. Storage space is also available there! On the second floor, off of a bedroom, we have an open deck area with another small garden. Then upstairs is the covered roof deck - the best space for hanging clothes, enjoying the view, all that.
Now that you know the apartment, let's talk about the neighborhood. Santo Antônio is next to the famous historical center of Pelourinho, but it's much quieter and less touristy, so it's a great place to come back to. It is a quiet area with beautiful, old buildings and some of Salvador's best hotels and inns.
One side of the neighborhood looks out over the bay, so you'll have plenty of chances go out for delicious food or a cold beer while watching the sunset over the water, or seeing all the lights of the bay and lower city at night.
Finally, you will find most of what you need here in Santo Antônio. There are bakeries, supermarkets, bars and restaurants, and bus stops all in the area. Seja bem-vindo!
Welcome! Our most important rule is mainly to respect the space and enjoy it. We keep a clean house, and especially a clean kitchen. We also ask not to bring anyone to the house who is not reserved through Airbnb.
Other than that - feel welcome and have fun!
My boyfriend and I spent 5 lovely weeks in the home of Julia and Fuca. The first week of our stay, Julia and Fuca were away on holiday, but a friend of theirs took care of the house, and he took very good care of us too. Julia and Fuca are super nice, so welcoming, and very helpful. Staying in their house made our time in Salvador a very pleasant experience. They really make you feel at home, and there's a relaxed atmosphere. We enjoyed a lot to hang out on the roof top terrace. Also Duda (the dog) was nice company. The location of the house is perfect if you want to be close to the historic center (Pelourinho) and still stay in a peaceful neighbourhood. There is a supermarket just around the corner - convenient if you want to cook yourself. We warmly recommend a stay at Julia and Fuca's house.
Julia wasn't there, but fuca (nickname), her husband, have been a wonderful host. The house is located in a perfect spot, very close (by walk) to the heart of the Centro and very friendly... from there, is easy to achieve most interesting spots of the city. The house is cool and, if you can manage for few days to have less intimacy in your room (the other room is communicating with this trough a high window always open), you'll have a wonderful experience. We'd love it and next time to Salvador we'll sure stay at julia and fuca's house!
Julia & Fuka's home is lovely. Exactly what we expected. As a couple of brits heading to Salvador it was a little bit daunting at first but Julia and Fuka were kind, friendly and super helpful throughout our stay, and even helped to arrange transport to and from the airport. Also the fact Julia (being American) speaks great English is a massive plus in Salvador as hardly any locals / even police speak it. We had a fantastic time in Salvador and the home and hosts could not have been better. Thank you very much guys!
Hospedarse en casa de Julia y Fuca es una maravilla!, la casa es linda , amplia , con diferentes lugares donde disfrutar y sobre todo el calor humano que se recibe, además la cercanía de tantos lugares donde disfrutar la cocina Bahíana, la música , la tradición!
Es mi segunda vez en Bahía y en casa de Julia y Fuca y siempre sera mi lugar para quedar, muy agradecida siempre con ellos!
Great place, and really nice people! Julia and Fuca are very nice people - accommodating, hospitable and, very friendly!
Would certainly stay there again if I find myself in Salvador!

About the Host, Julia & Fuca
Hello and welcome! I am a New Yorker, living in Salvador for the past few years now. I coordinate a bilingual language program in an elementary school on the other side of town, and have a small translation company. Fuca, my husband, is from here and works in education as well.
We love coming back to our neighborhood after work to relax, enjoy the view, cook at home and have a beer at some of the awesome bars and restaurants around. We are a low-key couple, but love getting to know our guests and getting people together in our home.
We really enjoy sharing all the places and lesser-known points of this city with our guests as well. Just let us know what you are interested in an we will try to connect you with it!
