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.

  • EN: Alain's apartment is very nice and also perfectly located. It's only a few meters from the beach and just beside a shopping mall. I would anytime come again to that apartment. 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!

  • Alain's apartment is supernice and has the best possible location for Salvador. Barra is midway between Pelourinho (old town) and Rio Vermelho (nightlife) and has two splendid beaches: Farol da Barra, just one short block away, and Porto da Barra (my favorite), a 10 minutes' walk. Don't miss the lambreta (Bahian mussels in a broth) at Cabana da Celi, and the authentic Italian pasta dishes at La Lupetta, 8 minutes away on rua Marques de Leão. But what makes this location unbeatable is Perini, Salvador's best deli, which is literally next door to the bulding, and the huge Shopping Barra, which has just undergone a major renovation.
    I should take one star off the evaluation because we had a problem with the air conditioning -- but it wouldn't serve you, because it has been replaced by a brand new unit that won't ruin any day of your stay.
    The building is safe, there are taxis nearby night and day (and the greatest 24-hour fresh juice stand on the opposite sidewalk.
    Don't hesitate to rent here.

  • Wir hatten eine sehr schöne Zeit in Salvador und in Alain´s Apartment. Alain organisierte auf unseren Wunsch einen Transport vom Flughafen zur Wohnung und war selber vor Ort um uns alle nötigen Informationen zu geben. Alain ist unglaublich freundlich und auch bei weiteren Fragen, die im Laufe des Urlaubs auftauchten, war er für uns immer per Mail zu erreichen und hat innerhalb kürzester Zeit geantwortet.
    Das Apartment hat eine tolle Lage zum Strand und in der Nähe gibt es Restaurants und Einkaufsmöglichkeiten. Das Apartment ist sehr schön und wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt.
    Wir würden auf jeden Fall wieder dieses Apartment mieten. Danke Alain.

  • He pasado un mes en el apartamento de Alain y he estado muy confortable, además de estar situado en un lugar privilegiado del barrio de Barra, el personal que trabajaba en el edificio ha sido muy amable en todo momento siempre dispuestos a ayudarme en todo lo que necesitaba. Cerca del apartamento se encuentra la escuela de lengua portuguesa para extranjeros Idioma, donde asistí a clases durante todo el mes y quedé muy satisfecho. Recomiendo este alojamiento a todo el que vaya a pasar un periodo de tiempo en Salvador, es un lugar muy tranquilo, no se oye a nadie ni durante el día ni la noche, y los servicios generales como piscina, gimnasio y lavandería siempre están disponibles. Gracias Alain por tu amabilidad y profesionalidad.

  • It has been a real pleasure to rent Alain's apartment in Barra, Salvador. Alain's driver picked me up at the airport, and I was introduced to the apartment by Alain and his nice girlfriend (on a sunday!). Alain have been very serviceminded and helpfull in all kinds if issues, not only related to apartment rental but general things like getting a brazilian phone number, where to find the best beaches, and similar. Alain have been delivering a service way beyond what is expected from somebody offering apartments rentals, and I can gladly reccomend Alain to anybody who are looking for an apartment to rent in Salvador! :)

  • Alain is a nice person, kind and completely right. We had a great time in his excellent apartment situated in a strategic area, near the sea, beside a great market and the shopping center "BARRA". The apartment has a good swimming pool, gym, sauna and 24 hours security guard. Certainly we'll come back in this apartment!!!!
    Thank you Alain.
