2 beds available in a shared room for Carnaval. These are single beds in a bunk bed. The room will sleep up to 6 people total. We are a Brazilian/American couple and their 9 year old son who have been renting rooms for years.

The space

Come spend Carnaval and the Olympics with our family! I am an American living in Brazil with my Brazilian wife and our 11 year old son. We've been renting beds for years now and can provide lots of advice as to what to do and what to avoid during the Carnaval season. Although we all like to have fun and the beer and caipirinhas will be flowing, we do ask that any hard-core partyers think twice about staying here.

Dorm beds are R$90 a night on two bunk-beds. A fantastic breakfast spread is included. All rooms have ceiling fans. Drinking OK, smoking fine on the patio (my wife smokes), please no drugs.

Wireless available in house, and 1 hr. internet time per day on our computer. Bring your laptop or other wireless device for unlimited access!

We are located in the center of the city, just off the 'Avenida/Campo Grande' parade route and a 15 minute walk to Pelourinho. Barra is also within walking distance although it's farther. All services in easy walking distance from our house: restaurants, pharmacy, etc.

Feel free to user our kitchen to cook, and our living/dining room to hang out. We have a washing machine, we charge R$5 per load.

Additional days can be reserved before and after the Carnaval/World Cup period at a rate of R$50/day, contact us for availability. A locking steel cabinet (not in the room) is available for valuables.

Everything was exactly as I expected. The room conditions fully met my need. The location is perfect, close to Pelourinho and the area I was interested in for the Carnival period.

I was treated like family. Mark, Evanie and Lucas are an amazing and beautiful family that made my experience in Brazil not only memorable because of the carnaval but because of their hospitality and genuineness. My room and bed were really comfortable and clean. I was even given a towel on my bed! The location has such a local feel, and everything in close proximity as far as supermarkets, restaurants and near major avenues to catch a bus/taxi. Breakfast was great! Lots of fresh cut fruits, bread and many options to make a small sandwich, coffee, cake, different homemade juice everyday. The made their home feel like home for not just me, but everyone else who stayed there. Saudades de voces!

Thanks Francesco! We really enjoyed having you. Just a note to potential future guests: we only serve breakfast during Carnaval, and this year during the World Cup.

Thanks for the warmly hosted stay during Carnaval! I wish we'd had more time to chat - Mark has some cool stories about Capoeira as well as about things in the art world and you should also visit his shop and see some of his art in the streets. His family is generous and friendly. His kid can be hyper at times, but I spose just enjoying his youth - you should ask to see his kung fu =) I was in the 2nd floor room, and I was lucky enough that I ended up having the room to myself on the 2nd floor. Fan is great, quiet. House is clean and well kept, everything needed is accessible. I used the kitchen, computer, bathrooms, laundry/clothelines, and occasionally hung out outside on the downstairs back area when Evani and friends were kicking it with a beer and chatting. People are welcoming and the breakfast was nice during Carnaval. For Carnaval, you can get to the main streets to see the action very close. I personally didn't like being in the area unless I was with another friend/group, so that is my preference (though, all of Salvador has various unsavory charactors so it's not isolated to that part of town and Mark will tell you proper cautions). Daytime was nicer for me. I did like that, after Carnaval, it was a great location as all the shops and outdoor vendors were in full force and great to do a lil shopping around there and a short ~15 min walk to Pelourinho as well. Also near bus stops and Mercado Modelo. I also ended up having some unexpected airplane arrival issues that Mark was kind enough to help figure out and his friend Dias is a recommended taxi driver.
