Le logement

The photos of this room are a bit out of date, the sofa bed has been removed and now there is a real double bed with a comfortable mattress.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 us! I am an expat American married to a Brazilian and we have a 9 year old 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!

Accès des voyageurs

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.

Échanges avec les voyageurs

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.

Le quartier

Dois de Julho is an old and historic neighborhood. Jorge Amado, author and one of Bahia's favorite sons, set the novel 'Dona Flor and her two husbands' here, and it was also home to the poet Castro Alves. Once an upscale location, it has ridden the booms and busts of Brazil's economy. A recent, poorly conceived renovation has fallen into disrepair as there is no budget to maintain it. However, the largo is home to many things: our street has two music studios and there is a luthier around the corner - there are performance spaces and a musical venue. There are also lots of restaurants, two small supermarkets, a pharmacy, a dvd rental store, an art supply store, a graffiti supply store, a pizzeria, a dollar store, and several shops selling craft supplies. There are fruit and vegetable stands, a yoga studio, a bike shop, and even a center for traditional Chinese medicine. There are at least three bakeries in operation here. Pelourinho, malls, and movie theaters are within easy walking distance, as are the Museum of Modern Art (MAM) and the Museum of Sacred Art (Museu de Arte Sacra). The largo is home to doctors and lawyers, artists and musicans, but also has inexpensive boarding houses that are home to many people of much more modest income. The largo also has its share of homeless people and dogs, drunks, drug addicts, and assorted troublemakers. The streets are narrow, paved with old fashioned paving stones, and most of them, ours included, have at least one humble bar that can get loud, particularly on the weekends. A friend of mine from New York City who has been coming to Bahia for thirty years claims Dois de Julho as his favorite neighborhood in all of Salvador, due to its unique character and location in the city center. I personally couldn't imagine living anywhere else in the city.


As the house is located in the center of the city, there is easy access to city buses to all parts of the city, and the Lapa bus terminal is a short walk from the house. There is a taxi stand right on the corner.

Autres remarques

We are not located on the beach, the closest beach is in Barra, which is a short bus/cab ride away.

Mark et Evanie sont vraiment adorables et très sympas. La chambre et la salle de bain sont conformes à ce qui est décrit dans l'annonce et très propres. La maison de Mark et Evanie est idéalement située à 15 min du Pelhourino et proche des bus pour accéder aux plages de Barra. Nous avons passé un très bon moment.

Mark est sa famille sont des personnes très sympathiques et accueillantes. Nous avions une chambre avec 2 lits, un double et un simple, confortable et propre avec un ventilateur au plafond. Le quartier est populaire mais on s'y sent en sécurité. Le logement est situé entre le centre historique et la plage de Barra, nous avons été satisfait de cet emplacement plutôt central. Mark a eu la gentillesse de nous envoyer un taxi à l'aéroport. Je recommande cette famille et ce joli appartement coloré, peint par Mark qui est un artiste de talent ;)

Bon accueil de la part de la famille, chambre un peu humide (c'est un rez-de-chaussée). Maison propre située dans un quartier populaire du Salvador qui a l'avantage de se trouver près du Centre Historique et du Port.

Mark's family are friendly. Location is close to old city and easy to access public bus. Shower was not really the hot water when we stay but as Salvador is quite hot(if no rainy) so there are not a big problem.

Réponse de Mark :
Thank you for your review. The noise issue is well documented in the listing and the commentaries. Bugs? We live in the tropics. It's either bugs or lots of toxic chemicals, I'll take the bugs.

I'm from Western Massachusetts but have lived in Bahia for almost ten years. I run a small retail art supplies store close to our house and I am also a visual artist who is very interested in street art. I used to train Capoeira, which is what originally brought me here, but now I do more biking and running for exercise. My wife is a big fan of Samba music (in all of its variations) and my son likes kung fu - and riding bikes with his dad :)
