About this listing

The space

This is an upscale, air-conditioned, recently remodeled, impeccably clean one-bedroom apartment with a balcony and views of the sea and swimming pool. The pool is one of the biggest of any co-op in the vicinity & is a great place to hang out, get a little sun while chatting with the neighbors.
The building is excellently located. In addition to being seconds from the beach it also sits next to Salvador's best delicatessen and it is located just around the corner from Shopping Barra where you can find everything from excellent clothing stores to movie theaters to restaurants to berimbaus. The co-op is also a bit further back from the street so you can enjoy a measure of calm & tranquility away from the constant noise of traffic. There are bus stops & taxi stalls right as you exit the gate to the complex. You can get anywhere easily.
There are 24 hour-a-day doormen, a gym, a sauna, and a game room. Best of all you're just one short block away from the beach, Carnival floats and some very hot hangouts like Bohemia, Caranguejo de Sergipe, and Barra Vento.
Dedicated Wi-Fi internet connection
40” flat screen TV
Running hot water in the shower
Microwave oven in the kitchen
Electricity is charged separately
During Carnival, pool is unfortunately off bounds

The apartment is basic and looks like the photos with mini couch and chairs ! The kitchen was tiny but functional as we only cooked breakfast in the apartment. No lighter was provided to light the stove - so hopefully the lighter we bought remains in the apartment for other users. It was a pleasant surprise though to have a water filter system in the kitchen. The pool area was nice and not a lot of people during the week. The beach was a short walk away. It was easy to catch the bus (across the street) to the centre of Salvador, ferry or to another beach down the coast. We stayed one week and we didn't find that we needed the air conditioner - we used the fan at night. We spent $14.50 reals on electricity just less than $4us. I have used Airbnb around the world and have hosted many travellers in my own apartment … Alain apartment lacked the personal touched and homey feeling that I enjoy and the main reason I use Airbnb - there is nothing wrong with the apartment it does its purpose as we don't spent that much time in the apartment itself. It would be nice for the apartment to have a book/binder of information about the area - recommended places to eat , grocery stores near by , maps , etc. The security guards at the apartment were very pleasant helping us chose the right bus to get where we needed to go or answer our questions about where things were in town.

Response from Alain:
Thank you for the comments. Unlike a few other hosts, I am a realtor & manage quite a few properties. I understand that a homey feeling may be a plus, and a book binder as well. However, I do not really see myself as a part of the tourism industry, and any neighborhood info is very easily available online. Particularly since we have very good, reliable & high-speed internet + doormen that can point you to any desired destination. Where the lighter for the stove is concerned, I thank you for that. I have had matches & lighters in the apt and may have neglected to leave you sth to light the stove with, for which I apologize.

Alain is a fantastic host! The apt is just like in the pics - clean and stylish, perfect location. Alain is well organized and provides for clear and comprehensive information, is easy to communicate with - and above all, he is an amazingly kind, open and funny person. If in Salvador, I would always want to try and stay with him!

Apartment was very nice with an amazing view of the ocean and extremely well located within the City, with nice beaches within walking distance. Everything we needed was available. Alain was very welcoming and always helpful to any request. Would recommend for anyone looking to stay in Salvador.

Thanks for the review & the input. I had a talk w my maid & will make sure I personally check the towels and replace the ones that need replacing. My maid now knows to check on the kitchen utensils in case my older tenants put them away w out properly washing them. Thanks again for bringing those points up.

Alain himself is a very kind and helpfull host! DE: Alain's Wohnung ist sehr gut und auch sehr gut gelegen. Sie ist nur ein paar Meter from Strand weg, und daneben hat es ein grosses Einkaufszentrum. Ich würde jederzeit wieder diese Wohnung buchen. Alain selbst ist sehr nett und hilfsbereit!
