Sunny room in the center of Salvador with two beds: one double and one single. Sleeps up to 3 people. Located in the historic neighborhood of 2 de Julho, close to the Pelourinho. I am Brazilian and my son has dual citizenship: Brazil and United States.
The photos of this room are a bit out of date, the sofa bed has been removed and now there is a real double bed with a comfortable mattress. The room also received a fresh coat of paint and the soundproofing has been improved. The room is at the front of the house, which means it is a bit noisier but has more windows. The room now has two mosquito nets.
Are you coming to Salvador for a week or two and need a place to stay? Want to avoid the chaos of Pelourinho and the high costs of Barra? Interested in staying with a family?
Well, why don't you come stay with me and my son! Dois de Julho is an historic neighborhood located about 15 minutes walk from Pelourinho, right in the center of the city. We are renting out our guest room, which is on the first floor and has a bathroom right next door. The location is ideal for anyone wanting to take classes at the Escola de Dança in Pelourinho or train Capoeira in Pelouinho or at FICA or ACANNE, both of which are located here in Dois de Julho.
Here at our house you would have access to our kitchen and living/dining room. We have a washing machine, we charge R$5 a load to wash clothing, which then can be hung on the line to dry. We have wireless internet in-house, and a computer available if you don't have a wireless device. Suitable for a couple (it's a double bed). We are not located on the beach, the closest beach is in Barra, which is a short bus/cab ride away. Smokers OK but you have to smoke outside on the patio!
If you have any questions please feel free to ask!
Guests have access to the downstairs of the house, which includes the kitchen, dining/living room, and patio, as well as the two rooms we rent out.
Interaction with guests
Since we live in the house, we interact a fair amount with our guests. It's a great opportunity for my son to practice his English, and we enjoy getting to know travelers from all over the world. However, we don't generally make big meals that we can share with our guests, and our bedrooms are upstairs, which often leaves the downstairs free for our guests.
Other things to note
We are not located on the beach, the closest beach is in Barra, which is a short bus/cab ride away.

I was born here in Salvador and wouldn't trade it for any place in the world. I am Baiana heart and soul, I love the city, the music, Carnaval, everything! I work at home and I love to cook. If you are interested I can teach you to make muqueca!
