“Sunny, Sensual, Sultry, Salvador da Bahia”
Reviewed 23 February 2015 for a stay in February 2015

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. Jon and Rosana were as friendly and helpful as ever, and their pre-arranged round trip airport taxi made things effortless.
Beautiful ocean views, a 3 minute walk to the beach(Farol da Barra), and less than a 10 minute walk to the wonderful, calm, clear waters of Porto da Barra beach.
Every day was sunny and @88 degrees! Now i'm back in the brutally frigid New York City, sighing and singing the Bahia Blues. Ahhh, Bahia.......
Don't miss the opportunity to luxuriate in this breezy, spacious and beautiful condo, in an excellent location with lots of restaurants and nightlife. {And tell 'em Charlie sent you! :)

“Best accommodation in Salvador!”
Reviewed 28 March 2014 for a stay in March 2014
2
people found this review helpful

My husband and I recently spent 3 nights at Jon and Rosanna's penthouse and can honestly say that you won't find better accommodation in Salvador.The apartment looks even better in real life than the photos suggest.The upstairs balcony is massive and the views are just stunning.We loved spending time sun baking,star gazing and just generally relaxing at different ends of the deck.There is an outdoor shower - perfect for a cool-off while sun baking.The furnishings are modern and the entire apartment was clean and well maintained.The bedrooms are large and breezy and a fan plus air con ensures you are kept cool on hot nights.The master bedroom bed was huge and super comfortable - we slept really well.The apartment has three bathrooms - two on the first floor,an ensuite and guest,and one on the top floor.The master bedroom ensuite shower is excellent and has a large window through to the bedroom - a cheeky addition.

The apartment is perfectly located in Barra,a lovely waterfront neighborhood with excellent beaches,bars and restaurants.There is also a European style deli nearby that stocks a great range of international brands should you wish to cook at the apartment or just put together an antipasti platter to enjoy while watching the sunset.

Jon and Rosanna were wonderful hosts,we truly appreciated their warmth and wealth of information on all things Salvadore.They live next door and it was reassuring to know that if we needed anything they were only a door knock away.Jon provided us with a fantastic guide on dining in Salvador - he really went above and beyond and we found it invaluable during our short but lovely visit.If we are fortunate enough to return to Brazil we'll definitely be back to this apartment,it truly is one of a kind.

“Wonderful Oceanview Penthouse in a Fabulous Location...”
Reviewed 11 November 2013 for a stay in November 2013

people found this review helpful

Just back from nine excellent nights at Jon & Rosana's penthouse condo in Barra. The location is great, just a block from the Farol beach and the Lighthouse and a 5-10 minute walk to Porto da Barra beach. Lots of restaurants, pharmacies, grocery stores and Perrini delicatessen nearby. The photos don't do the 10th floor bi-level condo justice. it has fantastic views from the deck of the ocean and lighthouse, and is very chic and comfortable. Downstairs are two bedrooms and two bathrooms with showers, and there is a social bathroom on the deck level and also a room that can be converted into a third bedroom. On the deck level is a spacious living room, dining area and kitchen; with TV, DVD/CD player, etc. and there is Wi-Fi service as well. Jon, Rosana and son, Joao live in the apartment next door and are very pleasant and friendly and always available to help out, but never intrusive. i would definitely stay there again and highly recommend this condo to fellow travelers.

“Best ending to our trip!”
Reviewed 26 September 2013 for a stay in September 2013

people found this review helpful

I spent a few days at this condo with two of my friends and we are so happy this was our last stop in Brazil. To start with - Jon & Rosana (owners) are really fast and informative when responding to inquiries. We arranged two nights and got a lot of information about the city.

Once we arrived we were amazed with the view. As everyone in other reviews say - pictures don't do it justice. Everything is also really close including grocery, ATMs, bus stops, restaurants and the Lighthouse.

We had 3 people and used all the rooms - including the day bed surrounded by glass. The bedrooms had two different comfort levels of beds - soft and firm - which were perfect for us. The linens were clean and soft. The whole condo, especially the bathrooms, were extremely clean. No complaints at all.

Jon & Rosana even gave us fresh fruit and coffee which turned out to be perfect for breakfast on the patio. They were the perfects hosts. We ended up just chilling out the last few nights of our trip and having wine under the stars on the patio was a perfect end.

If I go to Salvador or know anyone going I will definitely recommend this condo!!
