You are welcome to my place.
Please, before make a reservation let me know a little about yourself.

The Space

The apartment is located in Caminho as Árvores, one of the best neighborhoods of Salvador. The building is new and has a gym, game room and pool (great after a day of sightseeing or a long day of business).

Apartment is located in a very safe and quiet residencial area.

My place has a good space. Fully equipped kitchen available for use. WiFi. Some DVD and BluRay movies available. Washing machine (free to use). Also a nice balcony (perfect (email hidden) while enjoying the view from the top floor). My girlfriend and I love to invite the "new friends" for the balcony to share life stories, travel experiences over a glass of wine and my homemade bruscheta.
The guest room has a double bed, desk table, chair, air conditioning, some shelves, small TV and your very own private bathroom.

I don´t usually cook, I mostly buy things for breakfast and some food for the evening in a supermarket near by. Also There are plenty of restaurants around with good food and affordable prices. In the first day I will provide the breakfast.

The best night life in Salvador is in Rio Vermelho (10 minutes in taxi R$ 20). In this area you´ll sure find the kind of music or people you´re looking for. I can recommed the right place depending on your interset.

Guest Access

When you check in I will give you the main door keys and tips about place to visit, retaurants, beaches and so on. Also will lend you a local mobile so you can reach me whenever you need me

The Neighborhood

The main bus terminal is less than 10 minutes; By this terminal you can find direct buses to major cities around. Transportation from-to my place in Salvador is easy: just 3-4 minutes from my place you can find a bus to go to major tourist attractions (light house; old town; beaches; museums etc.); those buses are safe and cheap (R$3) and also you can easily find taxis close to my place.

Iguatemi Shopping Center - the major shopping mall of the city is 2 minutes from my place. In the mall you can find nice restaurants, cafe, ATM, travel agency . It´s also from Iguatemi that departs the SalvadorBus (R$ 45,00), the double-decker bus, which runs the city's sights. If you decide to go to Praia do Forte there are Vans that departs from Iguatemi every 30 minutes (R$ 12).

Getting around

If you´re coming from the airport you can take the regular taxi (will find them across the street when leaving the terminal) the fare is around R$55 - R$60 (US$ 27.00). If you coming by bus you can walk to my place. The main bus terminal is really close.

  • My friend and I had a great time staying at George's apartment. It was clean, the neighborhood was very safe and George was great to talk with.

    The bus station nearby made it very easy to get to barra and rio vermelho (the beach and going out at night.) we would take a taxi occasionally and it was well priced.

    I definitely recommend staying at George's.

  • What can we say about George? He is absolutely amazing and we left Salvador with a life long friend. Amazing accommodations, great location, but the company is the best part. Can't wait to see George again!

  • I had a great time during my stay at George's place. He is a great host, always made sure that I had comfort in his room. He is also very kind, very friendly, open-minded and hospitable. He took me out many times and we had long conversation about everything in Brazil.
    His place is very close to shopping malls and bus stations to get around the city and the main bus terminal to get to other cities. Very comfortable and quiet, private shower.
    I definitely recommend his place for those looking for a comfortable place to stay in Salvador.

  • Estivemos em Salvador pra acompanhar o Brasil na Copa das Confederações, e posso afirmar que foi uma viagem incrível. George é uma pessoa diferenciada, e que contribuiu muito pra que fosse uma excelente viagem. Desde o momento em que chegamos ele procurou nos deixar super a vontade em seu apartamento. Sempre atencioso tirou as nossas dúvidas e também nos passou muitas dicas de passeios por Salvador. Sua experiência com viagens e também seu conhecimento cultural rendem boas horas de um imperdível bate papo.
    O Apartamento de George é muito confortável e também completo, sua localização é privilegiada em bairro nobre. Se você não se importar com o uso de transporte público a uma quadra tem um ponto de ônibus do shopping Iguatemi que permite você se deslocar por toda a cidade inclusive pelas belas praias do norte, e também pelo centro histórico. Pretendo voltar um dia e George já esta convidado para conhecer melhor minha cidade. Deixo aqui um obrigado e grande abraço ao novo amigo. O recomendo como anfitrião e pessoa.

  • George tem um apartamento MUITO confortável e organizado que está localizado perto de um bom comércio, mas um pouco distante dos principais pontos turísticos (45/60 minutos da Barra, Pelourinho), Possui vasto acesso à transportes tranquilos de utilizar (ônibus, táxi), e de ônibus pude visitar e apreciar o Centro Hiistòrico, o Pelourinho e algumas praias urbanas, Com uma bela vista urbana (shopping Iguatemi é atrás do prédio), fiquei à vontade desde o primeiro momento lá dentro. Se você, como eu, precisar trabalhar no Centro de Convenções da Bahia este imóvel é perfeito, pois está bem perto e chega-se rápido mesmo na hora do engarrafamento. O anfitrião é gentil, amigável e bem humorado. Gostei muito da minha primeira experiência com hospedagem solidária, e pretendo repetir.

  • I had a really good stay in Salvador. George's place is new and has all the comforts of home including a full gym and a nice size pool. The apartment is laid out very nice, and was spotless when I moved in. He's also very knowledgeable about where to go sightseeing and the best places for the local cuisine. I had a great time and met some very cool people. I would love to come back and experience Carnival in this historic city in the near future.
