Q.What guarantees of your service do I have after making a payment?
A.Although there are other individuals and private real estate agents offering online vacation rentals in Salvador, Paradise Properties Bahia is one of few official real estate agencies to offer these services. In Brazil, businesses are subject to a much higher scrutiny than individual agents as there are numerous city permit and zoning offices that each business is accountable to. For the consumer, this means you have added security and ability to track down any unscrupulous business activities.

Q.What if I change my mind and don’t want to rent any more?
A.Once we have received a reservation deposit, if you decide to cancel a reservation with more than 60 days notice, we will refund your deposit less a 20% handling fee. For Carnaval rentals or reservation changes with less than 60 days notice, no refunds will be issued.

Q.I have five people in my party and the apartment description says that it sleeps up to three?
A.Capacity limits for apartments are enforced and you will not be able to put more than the advertised limit of people in the apartment.

Q.What is included in the rental price? Is there anything extra to pay? Do I have to pay any additional taxes or bills?
A.For vacation rentals of less than one month, unless otherwise notes, the price includes all taxes and fees. Some properties have a one time cleaning fee which is listed in the property description. For rentals of 1.5 months or longer, the tenant will usually receive a discounted rate but will be responsible for paying utilities and other fees. We will provide a cost breakdown for those particular cases.

Q.Is maid service included?
A.For some luxury properties, full maid service is included in the price. In some other cases, light maid service may be included which involves a quick daily floor sweep, tidying up and washing dishes. Laundry service would not be included for an apartment that offers ‘light maid service’. If you would like to include it, we offer additional full maid service including laundry, cooking, grocery shopping, etc. with your rental. click here for details

Q.Is Salvador safe?
A.By using some basic precautions, you should find Salvador to be as safe as any international urban area. During the day it is OK to bring a camera around to photograph tourist sites as long as you are careful not to dangle it carelessly in front for numerous passersby. If you are going to be in a crowd (including any visit to Pelourinho, Carnaval, or open air public festivals) avoid carrying any item you wouldn’t want to lose. Avoid bringing credit cards and bring just enough cash to get you through the night.
