Reviewed March 1, 2010

My partner and I spent a fortnight in one of the Arvore apartments. We had a wonderful time here, from breakfast till bedtime we were taken care of. One day we stayed in the garden and its pool, or we walked to the beach (3 min. walk). The other day we took a bus or moped-taxi to Arraial to have a stroll there and went to the lively beach in that nice town. We made trips to Trancoso and to St..André, all very near and interesting.
Last but not least we visited the Pataxo indian reservate near Arraial.

We stayed in Arvore Apartments for a couple of nights and have had a great time in the apartment as well as in the beautiful garden.
The really nice looking apartment was neat and clean. We very much enjoyed the delicious breakfasts every morning. The friendly owners were very helpful and well informed about excursions/area etc.
The apartments are located close to the beach. A bus is running regularly to the lovely city center, however we also walked to town several times.

I would absolutely recommend Arvore Apartments!

My partner and I spent five weeks at Arvore Apartments / Pousada Peki in November/December 2009, renting one of the apartments. I can say with full sincerity that this was the best trip either of us has ever taken. From the moment Jeannette greeted us with a big smile at the airport and brought us across the ferry from bustling Porto Seguro to the oasis that is Arraial and Arvore / Peki, we knew we had made the right decision to come there. The only problem, if I can think of any, was the thought of having to leave at the end of our trip.

I work remotely for a software company and can therefore be anywhere in the world where there is an internet connection. My partner is a student who had some time off, so we decided to go to Brazil for our first time to have a working holiday. We knew absolutely nothing about the country, Bahia, let alone Arraial. With tedious online research however we discovered this little gem and were fortunate enough to have the privilege of getting a long term rate before the high season.

We did not feel like tourists at all, but rather like property owners in Arraial. Jeannette and Hossein graciously welcomed us into their paradise, making us feel right feel at home. There is something so perfect about waking up in the morning, taking an out-door shower, and jumping into the pool while a breakfast of homemade bread, strong Brazilian coffee, and fresh exotic fruit from the garden is waiting for you on the table. At night we loved sipping caipirinhas (watch closely how they make them, so you can try it at home. We tried since we left, but can’t quite seem to make them so delicious as Jeanette and Hossein. Must have something to do with the fresh fruit they use) under the moonlight in and around the pool while samba music set the mood. Everyone who is associated with Arvore / Peki, be it fellow guests, employees, or the owners themselves, are delightful and genuinely interesting. We had many a late-night conversation with the people there and felt very accepted into the little community Jeannette and Hossein have worked hard to create.

In terms of practical matters, Arvore / Peki was perfect. Just across the street from a beautiful laid back beach and halfway between the ferry to Porto Seguro and the town of Arraial, the location could not be any better. The internet, which is especially important to me, was perfect and the wifi reception covered the whole grounds, including our apartment. From our laundry, to breakfast, and homemade treats, the housekeeping staff was impeccable. For anyone who really appreciates cleanliness like we do, you will not be disappointed.

We had no idea what to expect before we arrived; now I can say that our experience there far exceeded anything we could have dreamed of. Jeannette asked us why we only took one trip in five weeks away from Arraial. The answer is obvious – why leave paradise when you’re already there? We look forward to returning again and again in the years to come.
