Condo/Apartment
Airy and comfortable 3 Bedroom apartment nestled between tropical Atlantic forest on one side and the Porto de Barra beach in front. Centrally located at the city's most popular in-town beach and just 20 minutes from Historical Center of town. Our apartment is ideal for someone who is looking to combine the experience of being right on the beach with all of the advantages of being in the the midst of Salvador's lively day and night-time activities. Join the locals in enjoying an invigorating morning swim or participate in the popular Porto tradition of cheering the sunset at end of day. The apartment itself stays fresh and quiet even in the middle of Barra's summertime buzz, especially in the living room where the breeze is cooled by the leafy green of the trees outside.

Centrally located at the city's most popular in-town beach and just 20 minutes from Historical Center of town. Our apartment is ideal for someone who is looking to combine the experience of being right on the beach with all of the advantages of being in the the midst of Salvador's lively day and night-time activities. Join the locals in enjoying an invigorating morning swim or participate in the popular Porto tradition of cheering the sunset at end of day. The apartment itself stays fresh and quiet even in the middle of Barra's summertime buzz, especially in the living room where the breeze is cooled by the leafy green of the trees outside. Its not uncommon to hear the sounds of birds and monkeys, and in the morning and evenings the sounds of the surf against the rocks outside as well. All of the rooms have ceiling fans. The master bedroom features a comfortable queensize bed, the second bedroom has two full size single beds (actually an American style 'trundle bed') and is the coolest and quietest of all the bedrooms. Both have large windows opening to the trees and greenery next door. The third room (or front room) looks out on the colonial fort, the bay and the beach and can either be used as a bedroom with a sofa bed that works either as a full size double or two small single beds, or as a second hang-out space where you can relax in the roomy hammock. It is also an ideal spot to sit with your laptop to catch up on email or post your vacation photos (actually the room doubles as our own home-office.) All rooms have ample closet space. Kitchen is fully equipped and easy to work in with double sink, large refrigerator, 5-burner stove and microwave. Also has a small portable dining table. Living room as spacious with lots of house plants and another dining table. Even though the apartment is officially a three bedroom, we normally have it configured with two bedrooms and two common rooms (living room and front bedroom/office). It is comfortable for up to six, and works particularly well for a small group of friends or a family (for that reason we have priced in comparable to a 2-bedroom for non carnaval/world cup periods.) We have wireless internet available throughout the apartment and the two principle bedrooms both have satelite TV and there is a stereo in the living room -- all are available for the use of our guests. Kitchen is fully equipped and easy to work in with double sink, large refrigerator, 5-burner stove, microwave, blender and coffee maker.. Also has a small mobile dining table. Living room as spacious with lots of house plants and another dining table. Guests will have access to the wireless internet and will have use of the large screen TVs with satellite channels in the two bedrooms. There is also a stereo system in the living room (although if you want to hook up your mp3 or smart phone will need an adaptor to RCA inputs.) We also provide towels, bedding, shampoo and bath products. Whatever you find in the fridge or cupboards is available for use and we have a good selection of spices and condiments to get you started on your cooking efforts. We also have a laundry machine that you can use. When you arrive at the apartment you will be greeted either by ourselves or our friend Daniel to check you in and get you oriented to the place and neighborhood. We can also help to set up a pick-up at the airport if you like. Once your moved in you'll have the place to yourselves, although there will be someone within email or cel phone reach should any questions or issues arise.

It is comfortable for up to six, but works particularly well for a small group of friends or a family (for that reason we have priced in comparable to a 2-bedroom for non carnaval periods.) More

About the neighbourhood
Our neighborhood of Barra (specifically Porto da Barra) is one of the most popular for tourists and visitors because of its central location, historical colonial structures and access to two popular in-town beaches, the Porto da Barra beach having been called one of the 10 best urban beaches in the world.The neighborhood has just experienced a major facelift and renovation, limiting automobile traffic and making the area much more pedestrian friendly, fixing up the local plazas with landscaping and seating areas. New spots are starting to pop up in the area to take advantage of the new developments. Walking distance here in Barra you'll find a variety of restaurants, supermarkets, banks and other types of commercial activity. One of the city's most popular shopping malls is also close by...
