Perfect Oasis!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived to this very charming beach house where Sergio and his wife were awaiting for our arrival. They were two of the most sweetest host. We asked where we could get the famous El Salvadorian dish pupusas. They guided us just a few feet away from there where a family made them. That being said inside the beach house we wanted more pupusas and Sergio's wife made us more. They were so generous. There is a special charm and authentic vibe you get when you are there. The sounds of the ocean had all of us (group of 4) sleeping like babies. The artwork, hammock, sweet local people made our stay fabulous even though it was only for one night we can definitely say we will be back!

Great vacation

  • 5 of 5

Just got back and can't say enough good things about our experience. The house itself is great. Right on the beach with a restaurant right next door that rents surfboards for $10 and has good food. Tunco, Zonte Sunzal all close.

But what puts this place over the top are the incredible people. Sergio and his family are the caretakers, and they are always there to help, and the pool and grounds are immaculate. Then there is the dog Fooki who will cruise the beach with you then settle on the steps protecting. Everyday Linda (the property manager) and her husband would stop by to see how things were going. Linda helped us get taxis into town to shop, cooked a couple of meals for us (she is a very good cook!), and was going to set up a waterfall hike for us (but the weather turned). Monty the owner was very helpful when we needed to contact him, and took care of everything beyond expectations. Thanks Monty!!! I highly recommend his casa.

It was really great to have them all around; the vacation would not have been the same without the help of these awesome people.

Beautiful beachfront property

  • 5 of 5

This is my second time staying at the property, and will be back again in the future! It is a short drive from San Salvador and located between Libertad and Tunco, making it easy to get to either places for groceries, restaurants, or night life. There is a nice restaurant/hotel next door where you can get drinks and food, as wel, which is really convenient. The kitchen is nice and open, with a great sitting area downstairs and a beautiful pool and back yard. Depending on the season and time of day, there is a great beach for walking, or during this time of year, for watching surfers. We love Foci, the guard dog, and Linda and her family are always very welcoming and helpful. Great for a quick getaway from the city.

Absolutely Stunning

  • 5 of 5

This house is the perfect get away for anyone: amazing well kept up yard, pool, ocean front, tree house like rooms and steps away from two great breaks. Sergio and his family made us feel right at home while keep everything perfectly maintained and handing out great recommendations. The real bonus kicker is the guard dog Folki - wonderful, fun and protecting.

Beautiful, Immaculate, and a Fantastic Place to Visit

  • 5 of 5

My husband, 3 year old daughter, and I stayed at this vacation rental for 14 days in March 2014. The immaculate grounds, clean house, discreet helpfulness of Sandra and Sergio, and our experience in El Salvador exceeded all of our expectations. We had a fantastic time.

The guard dog, Foci, was immediately friendly to us and also guarded well. He was gentle and a great companion for our 3 year old, often following her movements in a friendly but protective way, even while on the beach.

The amenities of the house were well thought out. Having separate outdoor showers for the beach and pool were helpful, and the kitchen was well stocked with cooking utensils. We cooked our own dinners every night. Having a full sized, beautiful clean pool with a waterfall was a welcome relief from the heat. We found a large golf umbrella for extra shade in a market too. The a/c in the bedrooms was necessary to use at night.

The hotel next door’s WIFI is password protected so we couldn’t use their WIFI. The internet provided with the house requires a USB port and the connection is slower than North American standards.

We used the house as a home base to take day trips from and explored a large portion of the country. We also visited San Salvador a few times (downtown and central square, the zoo, Zona Rosa district, etc) and by using common sense and avoiding driving at night, we felt safe the entire time.

The Super Selectos in Zaragoza (10 minutes up the hill on the main road out of La Libertad) is larger, quieter, and has more selection and parking than the busy one in La Libertad. Another Super Selectos on the hwy into the Santa Tecla area (before the turn off to San Salvador), is even bigger and has a very large imported foods section, where we found pretzels, gluten-free food items, and other items we didn’t expect to see. We also bought inexpensive vegetables and fruit from the large market in Santa Tecla, making sure to wash them in purified water and grapefruit seed extract before eating.

We had an amazing trip and would highly recommended this house to anyone who is adventurous, and interested in or familiar with Central America. The grounds, pool, house, and beach are even more spectacular than the pictures show. It was a fantastic and beautiful place to stay.
