One caipirinha please! A fantastic view.

Your garden in the sky. If you like the outdoors this is the place for you.

Our recent stay here made for a wonderful experience in Salvador, possibly the best of several so far. The apartment is thoughtfully designed and built, and has been well maintained. The downstairs bedrooms are a nice distance from the upstairs common spaces. The kitchen is modern, functional and pleasantly open to the dining area, living room and the terrace, although...

Well, this was our third stay at Jon and Rosana's spacious duplex penthouse and things couldn't have been better. The weather was warm and sunny, and the wraparound deck was perfect for sipping caipirinhas after a long, lazy day at Porto da Barra beach. A great place to watch sunrises and sunsets, also. Jon and Rosana were as welcoming, helpful...

Management response:

Hey Guys!, Always great to see you back in the city of happiness! Salvador da Bahia de Todos os Santos! Give our regards to Broadway, and "Volte Sempre"! Always come back to Bahia! Grande Abra�os Jon and Rosana

Just back from 10 nights at Jon and Rosana's sexy penthouse duplex in Barra. This was my second booking with them and once again we were "chillin" in the lap of luxury, basking in the sun on their wrap around deck, caressed by ocean breezes, sipping ice cold cervejas and caipirinhas, and taking in the beautiful sunsets.

About the neighborhood
Located in a popular tourist and family friendly part of Salvador, the historic, residential neighbourhood of Barra, is a short taxi (or bus) ride from the rest of Salvador's finest attractions, such as the historic centre of Pelourinho, about 15 minutes by taxi or bus, the old Portuguese buildings and markets of Cidade Baixa and Santo Antonio, or the bars and restaurants of Rio Vermelho.

We're 150 metres from an 800 metre long beach, the Praia do Farol, with beautiful reefs forming natural sea pools, which are great for paddling and cooling off. Or for the more exercise conscious, there is surfing at the far end of the beach, and stand up surfing, snorkelling and scuba diving a mere 10 minutes walk away, on the second most popular city beach, Praia de Porto da Barra, set in a s...
Getting around
Catching a taxi around Salvador is the quickest way to get around, as it's a historical city, and has interesting things to see and do scattered around as the city evolved over the centuries. Or if you prefer enjoying the beach life, you can find everyone in our area and the nearby areas, on foot. Taxis and buses pass the building very regularly, and getting an Uber is simplicity itself.
Car not needed
How to get there
Airport: Dep. Luís Eduardo Magalhães: 18.6 mi
Ferry: Ferryboat Terminal: 4.0 mi
Ask us to arrange a taxi or van pickup (R$90 - R$150 Reais local currency) from the airport directly to our apartment with a known driver. Or take one yourself. Just ask to be taken to the Farol da Barra, it's the oldest lighthouse in South America, and one of the most famous landmarks of the city. The road there takes you directly past our apartment. We're just about 150 yards away from the beach, and you will spend many an evening watching the sunset over the lighthouse and bay of Bahia.
