About Rosana Ioris

Languages: Português, English & Spanish.

We're Jon and Rosana and we fell in love with Salvador many years ago. The warm sea, beautiful beaches, and spectacular sunsets, are just part of what we love about this historical city.

Rosana is a fully qualified Shiatsu masseuse, Jon a graphic designer, living and working in Bahia after many years in London.

Rosana Ioris purchased this apartment in 2011

Why Rosana Ioris chose Salvador

This really is a wonderful penthouse with a fantastic view of the ocean and the nearby island of Itaparica, in a safe, friendly touristic neighbourhood, served by two of the best city beaches in Salvador, and with good travel links to other parts of the city, state and many surrounding islands.

What makes this apartment unique

The terrace is enormous, the width of two apartments, 30 metres (66 feet). And the view spans more than 180 degrees of sea and beautiful skies, and as far as the neighbouring island of Itaparica. You have to experience it to believe it.

And the open plan design in wrap around steel and glass with floors in old Brazilian hardwood makes you feel really a part of the amazing nature on offer in Brazil.

Amazing views and wonderful hosts!

  • 5 of 5

My spouse and I rented this apartment in Salvador for a long weekend with his parents, and we would go back in a heartbeat. The rental is stunning, with large windows and a great rooftop deck, all facing the ocean. The bedrooms are spacious and comfortable, and the living areas are great for relaxing and visiting. The rental presents as listed, and is even more impressive in person. While the apartment alone is enough to satisfy a renter, one of the best parts of our stay was our hosts, Jon and Rosana. They went above and beyond what we expected, providing us with a list of restaurants and activities to check out, even calling places to make sure they were open over the Easter holiday. If we are able to get back to Salvador during our time in Brazil, we will definitely book here again.

Amazing Salvador World Cup Trip

  • 5 of 5

To echo previous reviews, while the pictures posted on here are stunning, they really are not a substitute for visiting this unbelievable city and apartment in person. Myself along with 6 friends traveled to Salvador from July 3 to July 15 to enjoy the World Cup atmosphere in Salvador, and nothing about the trip disappointed. Even with 7 of us we were very comfortable in the apartment, the views are amazing, the rooftop patio is so nice and you are surrounded by beautiful beaches, restaurants, bars, pretty much everything you need.

However, to be quite frank, the only part of our trip that trumps the absolutely beautiful penthouse apartment, the surreal views out to the Ocean and the fantastic atmosphere of the city of Salvador is the hospitality of our hosts, Jon and Rosana.

Jon and Rosana sent a car to pick us up from the airport, they gave us all sorts of suggestions on where to visit in Salvador, and if any of those places peaked our interest they made all arrangements with the tour companies. They also just made sure we were comfortable and had everything we needed in the apartment. Having such fantastic hosts really erased a lot of the nervous jitters that often come with long, international trips.

Considering how this trip went, I would absolutely recommend this trip to anyone, and very well may be back myself at some point.

Thank you so much Jon and Rosana!

- Jamie

Unique and amazing place to enjoy Salavdor

  • 5 of 5

There is no right superlative to describing how amazing and unique this place is!

First of all, I want to thank Jon and Rosanna for being such wonderful hosts. Jon has been so welcoming and helpful so that we can fully enjoy Salvador. Thank you for all your time and our nice ride together!

Now, let's talk about the apartment: just breathtaking! As big travels, I can honestly say that it is one of the most beautiful place we have ever seen: the deck is just amazing, with a full view on the ocean. The inside floor plan is very convenient and the decoration very modern and clean. All what you can dream of. Our 2 daughters loved it as well.

Thank you Jon for this unforgettable experience.

Perfect description!

  • 5 of 5

The Penthouse with an Ocean View was exactly that! The pictures really do not do it justice as the private outdoor living area was so very expansive and the views amazing, not to mention it was so tastefully decorated. It was hard to leave the Penthouse, per my adult sons! We are a family of 5 adults and to a person we all agreed that our "Penthouse" in Salvador was the best of all the places we stayed in our Brazilian travels. Not only was it conveniently located to restaurants, groceries, night spots and the beaches - it was in a safe neighborhood. Our Host was the best! Jon was so very kind with his time and recommendations; he was completely accommodating even connecting us to an interesting local tour guide plus a chef, for a potential cooking class. Thank you again Jon - we all loved Salvador and the Penthouse!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the enthusiastic review, Jan! We're really happy to hear how much you loved the apartment and Salvador, a city which really deserves a lot more attention than it gets. The other cities like Rio and São Paulo may capture the headlines, but Salvador has the history of Brasil written on its streets, its music and in the hearts of its people. We love it too.

Amazing penthouse with stunning views

  • 5 of 5

We stayed on this amazing penthouse June 25 to 29 and had a fantastic time. The pictures do not show you how great this flat is. The views are stunning, and the outdoor space is really a plus for relaxing over a glass of wine after a day out.

We were 2 adults and 3 kids in this flat and felt very comfortable with the space. All major tourist attractions are either close by or can be reached through public transportation a few blocks away. Also, there are a great deal of restaurants and bars nearby that are very convenient for a night out without much planning.

I cannot stress enough what a great host Jon and his wife Rosana are. Jon arranged a cab to pick us up from the airport and made sure it was big enough so it could fit all of our luggage. He was super friendly in getting us all the tourist information so we can enjoy our stay. During our stay my wife got sick from a cold and needed to visit a doctor. Jon and Rosana helped us in finding a specialist, booking an appointment and making sure we got there. I have stayed in a number of vacation rentals, but never experienced such hospitality.

I would recommend this flat to anyone visiting Salvador.

Owner's Response: Wow, thanks guys. It was our pleasure hosting you and your family. Hope to see you again soon. (Translation to Portuguese): Ficamos nessa cobertura incrível de 25 a 29 Junho e foi fantástico. As fotos não mostram o quão grande esse apartamento é. As vistas são deslumbrantes, e o espaço ao ar livre é realmente uma vantagem para relaxar com um copo de vinho no final do dia. Nós 2 adultos e 3 crianças neste apartamento nos sentimos muito confortáveis com o espaço. Todas as principais atracções turísticas ou estão por perto ou pode ser alcançadas através de transportes públicos a poucos quarteirões de distância. Além disso, há uma grande quantidade de restaurantes e bares que são muito convenientes para uma noite sem muito planejamento. Eu não posso enfatizar o suficienteo quão grandes anfitriões Jon e sua esposa Rosana são. Jon providenciou um táxi para nos pegar no aeroporto e fez com que fosse grande o suficiente para que pudesse caber toda a nossa bagagem. Ele foi super simpático em nos conseguir todas as informações turísticas, para que pudéssemos aproveitar a estadia. Durante a nossa estadia minha esposa ficou doente com gripe e precisava visitar um médico. Jon e Rosana nos ajudaram a encontrar um especialista, reservar um horário e ter certeza que chegaríamos lá. Eu ja fiquei em um número de hospedagens para férias, mas nunca experimentei tal hospitalidade. Eu recomendaria este apartamento para qualquer um em visita à Salvador.

Farol da Barra lighthouse
Car: not necessary

We are in Barra, a wonderful, safe neighborhood in Salvador, with a panoramic view from our terrace to the Atlantic Ocean, and the historical fort of Santo Antonio and the first lighthouse of Brazil, the oldest in South America (1698), and the city's most famous icon, the Farol da Barra. At the fort (built in 1582), there is a restaurant, a bar and Nautical Museum of Bahia and a wonderful view of the bay of Bahia dos Todos Os Santos, All Saints Bay.

We are on the beachfront of the Farol da Barra , and within minutes walk of a second famous beach city, Porto da Barra, where Tomé de Sousa, first Governor-General of Brazil, landed in 1549, founding the city of São Salvador da Bahia de Todos os Santos.

The neighborhood of Barra is in a special location, at the tip of the peninsula that is the city of Salvador. Now part of the traditional circuit of Carnival called Barra-Ondina.

It is a predominantly residential neighborhood, upper class, although it does now host a number of small businesses, many banks - Santander, Itaú, Caixa Economica, HSBC, Banco do Brasil, Bradesco, as well as pharmacies, medical facilities, supermarkets, greengrocers, delicatessens, butchers, fishmongers, a creperie, and tea and coffee houses, and even a house of empadas, delicious Brazilian pies, plus many bars and restaurants along the waterfront.

The area boasts three famous nightclubs of the city - Off Club, Europa Bar and the Groove Bar.

There are many restaurants with a variety of cuisines: Bahian, seafood, vegetarian, organic cuisine, Arabic, French, Italian, Chinese, Thai, Japanese, Temakaria, Churrasco, Steakhouse, Pizza, International Buffet style, Cafeterias, even McDonalds, Subway, and Bob 's Burgers. As well as delicious ice cream and cake and sweets shops.

You can see and hear the New Year's Eve Party from our terrace, and there's nothing better than watching the New Year's Eve fireworks with family on our private terrace to bring great joy, peace and prosperity. The Lighthouse New Year shows are among the most famous and sought after New Year's Eve parties in the world, with performances by the great names of Brazilian music, performed in front of one of the most touristic icons of Salvador.

Sun, sand and lots of fun are part of the New Year in Salvador. The capital of Bahia is the most sought destination in the northeast for tourists, who seek all the joy and magic to start the New Year. The hospitality and happiness of the Baianan people enchants every visitor.

And our apartment is located a few minutes by taxi or bus from the main sights such as the Historic Center, the Pelourinho, the Mercado Modelo, and The Lacerda Elevator among others, with a host of shops, historic churches, beautiful streets, and lots of music from Bahia.

There are many taxis ranks and bus stops close to our building, and in a few minutes by taxi or bus, you can be in the bars, clubs or restaurants of the nearby bohemian neighborhood of the Red River, Rio Vermelho.

There are always new restaurants opening there, a Spanish Taparia, and a Peruvian ceviche, and several other restaurants. It also has lots of live music, and clubs and discos where young Brazilian locals go to drink, dance and flirt, such as Pedra da Sereia, Dubliners Pub, San Sebastian, Padaria Bar, Revolver Bar, Post Tudo, Twist Bar, Casa da Mãe, Visca Bar, Borracharia Club, Sunshine Bar, Botequim São Jorge, Varanda do Teatro SESI, Red River Café, 30 Segundos Bar, Seu Boteco, Portela Bar, Bar do Nando, Blue House, Commons Studio Bar, Café & Cognac, Ciranda Café, and many more...
