Max was very communicative and responded to my messages promptly before and during our stay. I did not get to meet Max, but I received the apartment keys from the security guard. The security guards that let people in and out of the building were extremely nice and friendly.
The apartment is as described and picture. We were happy to have been able to use the refrigerator, washing machine, and reliable wifi / internet. The views from the 12th floor apartment were beautiful and directly to the ocean. The view from the living room has a large building in the middle, but the scenery from the window was so wide that it didn't matter. The shower is electrically heated, so you have to get it at just the right spot for hot water; otherwise, it's luekwarm water when the water pressure gets too high. The area is densely populated and with the windows open, you can hear the music from the local bar, and lots of soccer fans cheering from nearby buildings. It wasn't quiet, but it didn't bother us at all.
The neighborhood, Barra, is surrounded by many, many beaches (all within a 5-minute walk). The boardwalk is dotted with many coconut water and street food vendors. There's a number of restaurants, bars and markets close by. We heard some stories about thievery being common in Salvador, but we felt safe in the area near the apartment. There were many pedestrians, traffic, and we often saw police. Still though, we only brought out as much money as we needed and left our phones in the apartment most of the time. It's about a 5-10 minute walk to Farol da Barra (famous lighthouse), and a 10-15 minute taxi ride (R$20) to Mercado Modelo and Pelourinho, Salvador's historical center (where, unfortunately, many churches and museums we wanted to visit were under renovation and closed). It's about 1 hour (R$100) to the airport (there is also a bus for R$30 that drops off at popular hotel locations, but you can't rely on it for pickup). We didn't have any trouble with the taxi rides we took, and they all ran on meter. On the weekends, there is a nice "Mercado Criativo" (with food and souvenir vendors) next to the Farol da Barra.
Overall, we had a nice stay and really enjoyed our experience in Salvador.
The host canceled this reservation 206 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Max’s place is as advertised and is modern and comfortable. It was basic but clean and tidy with all the linen and towels clean. The kitchen is fine and has everything you would need; we had no trouble with the Wi/Fi. All the beds are comfortable, the bathrooms clean and the showers refreshing.
Max was punctual, meeting us at the arranged time, at the apartment and helped us settle in very quickly.
The place is very good value. The A/C in the bedrooms helped us sleep, they were quiet and efficient. The washing machine worked well but there was also a service laundry just across the street. The apartment is very well situated; the beach is outside the front door, with plenty of shops, restaurants and bars around, all friendly and fun. The area is very safe; we walked around all times of the day and night without worry and the local’s friendly. We used the beach daytime and at night with no concern. The 8th floor views are great and help keep the place aired with a good breeze most days.
Max is a good host, being as helpful as he could be. He also kindly offered us transport from the Airport and back although we had already arranged someone.
I had read some horrible things about Salvador but didn’t experience any threat or worry while we walked around the city; in fact I found the place extremely friendly, safe and comfortable. I bathed in the sea at night, walked the bar area without concern and used the public transport network with ease.
Barra, the area around the apartment was great fun, very clean and I went out day and night, to beaches and exploring the city. There is a visible police presence, the whole of the beach frontage was well maintained and the sea clean, warm and inviting with a lot of good looking Brazilians showing off their stunning bodies and generally doing the Salvadorian thing. It’s a great welcoming area if you’re LGBT with a visible LGBT presence and a local bar just around the corner! The road outside was quiet and an easy place to grab a taxi with lots of good places to eat. Buses leave just one road over from the apartment to all over the city.
We were woken some mornings by the local evangelist church which has a rather loud and enthusiast preacher with his sound system turned up loud, even though the apartment is on the 8th floor you can hear them ranting, but this is just part of living in Brazil, and wasn’t any bother at all, we just took advantage of being up early to enjoy the quiet beach.
Salvador is a truly interesting city and we went all over the place and enjoyed some seriously interesting places. A great stay in a wonderful apartment that was made all the more enjoyable by having such a helpful and thoughtful host!
A localização não poderia ser melhor, a vista sobre o mar da sala e de um dos quartos é linda, O apartamento é limpo, confortável , arejado, quartos climatizados. Infelizmente um dos chuveiros não estava funcionando com água quente, mas como clima de Salvador não impactou na nossa (website hidden) cozinha senti falta de algumas poucas coisas, mas nada que deponha contra o apartamento que é altamente recomendável.
Mark foi um ótimo inquilino , deixou o apartamento limpo e organizado, recomendável.
Agradeço muito para o seu comentário , irei melhorar ainda mais o apartamento para deixar mais confortável.
Um ótimo custo / beneficio! O apartamento é simples, mas confortável e bem distribuído, sendo agradável estar nele. A localização é ótima. Recomendo.
Anfitrião confiável, seguro e acessível! O apartamento era exatamente como constou no anúncio e a viagem foi impecável!
Max e sua esposa são super solícitos me deixou a vontade. O esclareceu perfeitamente as regras quanto a utilização do imóvel.... Não tenho que reclamar, são excelentes anfritriões. Obrigado por tudo Max e esposa!
Ricardo hospedou em nosso apartamento e foi um excelente cliente. Recomendo!
Muy lindo y comodo departamento, en una zona bien ubicada y conectada. Nos alojamos junto a mi esposa e hijo y estuvimos muy comodos. No pudimos coincidir con Max a nuestra llegada, lo que tal vez nos hubiera servido para sacarnos algunas dudas sobre el departamento y el barrio.
Recomendable opción para alojarse en la bella ciudad de Salvador.
Encontramos um apartamento organizado e maior do que parece nas fotos - muito bom para duas pessoas! - Próximo à praia, farol da barra e com supermercado ao lado (menos de 5 minutos). Sua localização é bem servida de transporte público - para pontos mais turísticos da cidade - assim como taxis que circulam na área durante todo o dia. Max foi muito gentil e solicito conosco.
Bom dia, Max!
Passamos dias maravilhosos em seu apartamento, nos sentimos em casa.
O bairro pra mim após vários passeios é o melhor de Salvador, limpo, organizado e com tudo perto ( principalmente a praia ).
O apartamento é exatamente as fotos e a vista é perfeita.
Obrigada pela presteza e cuidado.
