••Note, 1) FOR ARRIVAL AFTER BUSINESS HOURS (WEEKENDS, HOLIDAYS OR 9PM-6AM WEEKDAYS), WE CAN ARRANGE A RELIABLE DRIVER TO PICK YOU UP FOR A PRICE CHEAPER THAN A TAXI AND HE CAN SHOW YOU INTO THE APARTMENT IF WE ARE NOT AVAILABLE, 2) not very suitable for young children (less than 5 years old), 3) the apartment is at the top/3rd floor of a relatively old building that is undergoing a renovation of the façade (which is taking forever), the building does not have an elevator but compensating for this the block that the apartment is in only has 1 apartment per floor, so the apartment is at the top of the stairwell and has no neighbours above it – uniquely private for a beachfront apartment in Salvador
Note we also have a beach apartment in Arembepe that we rent from time to time if you are interested: a great option for those who want to experience an authentic fishing village on the Bahian coast with the convenience of being easily accessible by taxi from the center of Salvador (45 minutes) or Salvador’s international airport (20 minutes)
