Alex was a wonderful host and took the time so sit with us and chat about what we wanted out of our stay to give us the best advice. We enquired about a samba class and his wife Jacquilene changed her schedule to fit us in - so nice! We even got a complimentary bottle of cachaça at the end which we shared with the other guests (it had nothing to do with how bad we were, honestly!) Open house has a great chilled out vibe and is close to the beaches and attractions of Barra - beautiful!


We had a really good stay at open house. The owner, Alex speaks super good English and give you good advise on every matter. The place is super gorgeous decorated and it really creates a chilled atmosphere. I would definitly go there again, if I stay in Salvador again.
