Photos and Description of this 6 bedroom holiday villa in El Salvador

Villa, 6 Bedrooms, 8 Baths (Sleeps 12-16)

Come pamper yourself in this splendid Villa set on a full acre of landscaped gardens. Enjoy wonderful views of the ocean from our open areas and viewpoint terrace. Dine outside in our seaside deck and enjoy the clear Salvadorian sky. You’ll absorb peace, comfort and warmth in every corner of Villa Candilejas. Enjoy our natural gardens and semi Olympic art deco pool. You can suntan in the deck or in the white sandy beach. Wine and dine in one of our four dining spaces, relax by the pool in our palm ranch or nap in the hammock gazebo.

With a little bit of luck you will be able to witness the wonders of nature! Throughout the years, sea turtles have hauled themselves onto the beach to find suitable sand on which to create a nest. It just so happens they like the sand in front of Villa Candilejas. Every year when this has happened, we care for the eggs until they hatch and make sure they get to the ocean. You could be a part of this wonderful experience, if you are lucky to be our guests while we liberate turtles back to the ocean!

This impressive Villa has a main house which includes two gorgeous bedrooms, both complete with queen sized beds and private bathrooms.

The living and dining room are great for entertaining! The dining room seats twelve people and the large living room is a great area to relax after a day in the sun. All rooms in the main house have A/C, including the social areas. The finishing touch to our main house is a beautiful terrace style living room and breakfast nook with amazing views of the property. The kitchen is stocked with all necessary gadgets and utensils, including coffee maker, blender, microwave, kitchen, stove, two fridges and a freezer. The kitchen also has a large closet ideal to keep non refrigerated items.

We also have a four bedroom guesthouse. The first room has a queen sized bed and a twin bed. Two of the bedrooms have one bunk bed. The fourth room has two bunk beds and a queen sized bed. All rooms have A/C and private bathrooms.

Price includes use of installations, friendly and honest cleaning staff, spacious parking and night surveillance. The Villa has its own water tanks and emergency power generator (which is a special feature we offer).

Villa Candilejas is located close to many Resorts and Restaurants where you can eat delicious sea food and typical food. Tour guide and driver services if required. Transportation to and from the airport are available on request.

Come and enjoy a vacation of rest and relaxation, fun and sun with your whole family! It’s only a four hour flight from Los Angeles and a two and a half hour flight from Miami!

We spent the most relaxing days at Villa Candilejas! The rental process was extremely easy and most professional. The staff were awesome and the cooking was amazing! We would love to go back and spend two weeks there very soon. The property was clean, well maintained with super friendly staff. Super helpful with any extras needed. We felt safe and had a fun time. Thank you for our wonderful experience!

My family (13 of us in all) recently stayed at Villa Candilejas for 6 amazing days. Everything in the listing is accurately described. The rooms are very comfortable and extremely clean and the grounds are kept very well. The staff are wonderful people who pampered us every day. From the property we took daily excursions to Apaneca, Cerro Verde, Volcan de Izalco, San Salvador and Lake Coatepeque and La Libertad. We also took a boat ride in the Jaltepeque Estuary all the way to the Lempa River. We had a fabulous time at Villa Candilejas and were very sad to leave. We hope to return on a yearly basis! We had no problems getting our deposit back.

Wonderful vacation getaway

Guest: candilejasguest (California)

Date of Stay: 12/14/11 Review Submitted: 01/09/12

This was an absolutely wonderful vacation rental experience in El Salvador. To begin with the description of the property was accurate and the transaction process was easy and safe. The owner was extremely kind, helpful and accommodating. What made this a great experience was the great service staff who were friendly, respectful and kind. The rooms were comfortable with air conditioning and with ample space for everyone. The beach is private and beautiful. There is also a great restaurant to order excellent food from if one does not want to cook with food for all tastes. There are a number of attractions for everyone including horse rides for children and adults and sea excursions to nearby places. I recommend this place to anyone who wants to have a one of the kind getaway in El Salvador.

great property in the best beach in el salvador

  • 5 of 5

we just spent 3 days at this property and we can not recommend it enough

the accommodations are very comfortable (the beds as comfortable as they can be for a beach house in el salvador but don't expect them to be as your bead at home)

the rooms are very comfortable, big, each with A/C and and their own bathrooms.

the grounds are MAGNIFICENT, with plenty of room, large pools, hammock area, and entertaining area with a wet bar and a separate bathroom

and the caretakers are awesome (it is El Salvador, after all)

there are not large towns close by, but there are several good restaurants, and activities include fishing and boating on the bay on the other side of the road

the beach is the best in el salvador for swimming in the surf (not really for heavy surfing though), since the breaks are not huge and the beach is flat so it is safe, and clean since the local communities are far away at both ends of the beach, so mainly only the owners of the local properties use the beach, if at all

you will not want to leave this house once you get there

New home, away from home

  • 5 of 5

We, a group of 16, were there for almost a week and just loved it! The Villa is relaxing, beautiful with its lush green landscape, walkway to the beach, and yes- a pool. The rooms are perfect sizes and location is just private, secure, and serene.

The owner is just wonderful to work with and quiet flexible. If he can manage a group of 16, he can manage anything! The staff on grounds are incredible helpful. Martha, the cook, is phenomenal. I think we kept getting up for seconds at each meal. Needless to say, we are hitting the gym once home.

Without a doubt, we are coming back for more!

Destination wedding / vacation = paradise

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of 10 that stayed at Candilejas. It was amazing!!!!! Absolute paradise. The owner was very attentive to work with us on anything that came up or that we decided on last minute. The place is just as you see in the pics. Extremely safe. The perfect get away. What makes it great is the staff !!!!! Thank you so much to vilma, Pedro and the rest of the staff. They make you feel at home. They went above and beyond our expectations. And the food vilma cooks is to die for!!! Recommend this place to anyone. Whether you want a quiet get away or just a week of fun filled days and nights.

Family Vacation Reunion

  • 5 of 5

This is an excellent beach property. The photos of this property reflect the property in accuracy. I was part of a large group, and the accomodations were excellent. We were treated with a 5 star service from the moment we arrived until the last minute. Both the the lady in charge and the grounds keeper were very friendly and such hardworkers. They made our stay in this location very pleasant, with their expertise in the kitchen as well as the surrounding areas. The area were the house is located is very safe and private away from the public. The beach is excellent for swimming, body boarding and even surfing.

I would specially like to thank the owner for working with our large group and accomodating all of us. I look forwarding to working with him in the future for another stayed and will definitely recommend this property to my friends and family.

We had an amazing time...

  • 5 of 5

Hi everyone,

This Aminta. We recently rented Villa Candilejas and our family and I had an amazing time!

Staff is very friendly, honest and efficient. We loved the privacy we were able to have in this property, as well as the cleaning maintenance. Staff cooked our groceries perfectly. The property is located in the safest area of Costa del Sol in El Salvador.

We travel a lot all over the world and we must say that Villa Candilejas is worth every penny it costs.

We are sure you will have a wonderful time at Villa Candilejas.
