Our standard spiel:

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 6 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$10 a load to wash clothing, which then can be hung on the line to dry. We have wireless internet in-house, I don't have 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!

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.

The room is on the first floor, located between the living room and the first floor bathroom. The window lets onto the air shaft in the center of the house. There is a rod to hang shirts and a small, five drawer dresser. The room has a ceiling fan and mosquito net.

If you have any questions please feel free to ask!

Respuesta de Evani:
Ouch! Clearly our house was not what Raquel was looking for. Unfortunately I was traveling when she stayed at our house with her husband, it was the middle of the World Cup and my wife was quite busy as we had numerous guests. There is a taxi stand at the end of our steet, visible in street view, less than 100 meters from the house. Raquel sent me an email at 1AM (I was on a plane at the time) requesting that I do something about the noise. According to others in the house, they had no idea she and her husband were in the room and asleep and would not have been quite so festive otherwise. She did not advise the group that she was trying to sleep before 1 AM. When she did come out of the room (apparently after sending the email) she was quite angry and made a scene, after that the party ended promptly. As for the price and the breakfast, we were very competitive in the pricing for what we were offering and "only juice, bread, cheese, some fruit and jam" is simply not correct. I suggest to all potential guests that they read our reviews carefully, apparently Raquel did not do so. When I received Raquel's email the following day I promised to find out what happened and make sure it wouldn't happen again. However, she opted to pack up and leave rather than stay the second night she had booked. Regarding the party in the common area: a) it was the middle of the World Cup, b) my wife was exhausted and asleep during the festivities, and, to be honest, c) if I had been at the house I would have asked them to keep it down or take the party somewhere else. We do not permit loud gatherings in the house as a rule, even during Carnaval.
