  • Picture Perfect

    "Two friends and I just returned from staying at Casa Bendicion for a week and absolutely loved it. Mike and his family are great hosts and can set you up with whatever you need...a ride to and from the airport, a cook, trips to the market, a massage, and local knowledge of places to eat and surf. The weather was perfect and the water was warm. The waves were fun and the locals were all very friendly. We enjoyed making the short walk from the house to the town of El Zonte to eat, shop, surf, etc. We never felt unsafe at all. In fact, it was quite the opposite. We found the locals to be incredibly friendly and helpful. I sustained a small cut on my head while surfing (out of my own carelessness) and when I walked up the beach w/ a bleeding head a small army of locals sprang into action getting me a wet towel, bandages, ice and making sure I made it to the house safely. I was so impressed. I highly recommend Mike's place for anyone looking to get away and just relax. The pool is perfect for cooling off and having AC in each of the rooms made it so comfortable for sleeping. Back in the cold waters of California I am missing this place more than ever and can't wait to get back. We'll be seeing you soon, Caballo. Thanks again for an awesome trip."

  • We found paradise!!

    "My husband and I truly found paradise at the Beach Bella Vista. Our only regret is that we didn't stay longer... as in forever ;) We stayed in the main house. We are already making plans to return, and this next time we will bring our family. It was incredibly relaxing. There isn't anything quite like a gentle ocean breeze and the sound of waves to lull you to sleep at night, or as you rock gently in one of the hammocks. Seriously, it is pure bliss. We found friends for life in meeting Shawn and D'Arcy. They are two of the nicest people you could hope to meet. They are attentive, prompt, and truly dedicated to making sure that their guests have a wonderful experience. We thoroughly enjoyed the Burke's recommendations for restaurants, and activities (including surf lessons!) The home itself is beautiful. It is modern, comfortable, spacious, nicely appointed, and impeccably clean. The pool and gardens are also very beautiful and well maintained. The views are unbeatable, and the ocean is warm and welcoming. The waves are perfect for boogy-boarding or body-surfing. It would also be an ideal place to skim-board (at least during the drier season when the sand is plentilful). We honestly can't recommend this home highly enough. If you are interested in having the most incredible vacation and El Salvadorian experience possible, you need to stay here. We honestly cannot wait to go back!!"

  • The only sounds are the constant waves and the occasional rooster

    "I stayed at El Jacalito with four friends for the most relaxing, enjoyable two week vacation of my well traveled life. This home is so spacious and comfortable with so many areas to congregate, dine, rest and chat that one feels to have an entire private resort at one's disposal. I loved the kitchen for staging buffet meals, appetizer spreads and quick meals on an impulse. Everything you need is there including candles for atmosphere and many seating options for couples or groups to enjoy. Without the distraction of TV and the internet, I found that we all talked to each other a lot and solved most of the world's problems, created all sorts of DIY craft projects and told adventure stories to each other that were nearly forgotten with our usual busy lives. We relaxed in the pool, the warm ocean and had rounds and rounds of splendid massage from the very kind caretaker who has magical hands. I would recommend a candlelight massage on the top of the the cabana with breezes blowing. Bring your favorite cream or lotion for an unforgettable experience. This is a very family friendly house with plenty of space for everyone. The caretakers are very competent and respectful of your peace and quiet but they are certainly available for any assistance or suggestions that you might need. I will return to this wonderful piece of paradise by the ocean, it would be hard to resist go again, I am making plans already."

  • The Best Sunsets!

    "After spending a week at Casa Azul, we just wanted to stay. The owners clearly put their hearts into designing this funky, beautiful, kid-friendly home. Our 2 year old loved being able to go in and out of the gradual-entry pool and exploring all the kids toys. I loved the american-style kitchen will all the amenities I am used to. The bedrooms and bathrooms are all beautiful and very comfortable. But really what takes this place over-the-top are the sunsets over the infinity pool (ok, and sitting on the deck and looking at the stars at night, too). It is super easy to get over to the beach, run into El Tunco for supplies or go over to my favorite restaurant in El Salvador - Ola Beto's, just down the road. The place isn't brand new anymore, and has a bit of wear and tear, but hardly noticed after settling in."
