About D'Arcy Burke/owner

We first came to Central America in 2008, what we found was warm and caring El Salvadorans who go out of their way to make you feel welcomed and at home. We like to say, 'we fell in love with the people before we did the place.' However, we do love the culture, climate and cuisine! We bought land, full of palm trees, on our very first visit to El Salvador and within a year, built a lovely beach home that meets American Standards. Now we spend the bulk of our time in Centro America. We'd like to sell everything we own in the States and move to El Salvador full time.

We get to meet so many interesting people from all over the world and we now have friends on every corner of the globe.. We enjoy helping others discover the beauty of El Salvador. Our goal is to set the bar so high that people keep returning year after year, and who knows, maybe they'll fall in love with ES as we have and we'll be neighbors as well. It's already happened!

D'Arcy Burke/owner purchased this house in 2011

Why D'Arcy Burke/owner chose El Salvador

Like so many others, we shopped for lodging on the internet. We had never been to El Salvador so we were looking for a community that was guarded and gated- we wound up staying at a Resort called Atami and that was how we discovered our little community. It's very special in that it has retained a lot of natural beauty, El Salvadoran culture as well as mixed culture with people from all over the world, it has little tienda shops within the walking trails for cold drinks and service items, but more importantly, it's one of the few neighborhoods that has access to a private beach. There are only 7 homes on the water with direct ocean access. This was a Huge determining factor for us.

What makes this house unique

Community tienda's offer household necessities, food items and cold drinks within walking distance, local Mom and Pop Seafood restaurants are within walking distance located at Palm Marcita Beach. Exotic lava pools are available to bathe which has known healing properties or you can simply look at the colorful fish and sea life trapped until the tide comes again. Local divers fish off of La Leona cove- they catch fresh lobsters and oysters and will deliver them to your door the same day, the local bread man goes through the community every morning to sell fresh baked morning rolls to go with your morning coffee. Rental bicycle and motorcycles are available as are kayaks and jet ski. Plus we can arrange for deep tissue massage, organic facials and interesting tours.

We found paradise!!

  • 5 of 5

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!!

A Hidden Paradise in El Salvador.

  • 4 of 5

The Villa is modern, spacious, fully equipped and over looking the Ocean. The Villa has a stylish design and it centres around the enclosed private garden with private pool & jacuzzi. Both the lounge and the kitchen opens up to a large sitting/eating area overlooking the Pool/Ocean. An ideal place to relax with a chilled glass of wine in comfortable loungers and beautiful settings. The view is amazing!

The Villa can comfortably fit 10 people and is the perfect get-a-way. Definately would recommend.

Small but Comfy

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the little Casita which is very clean and comfortable. We have stayed at another of the Burkes properties and have thoroughly enjoyed our stays. Their properties are always super clean and they go out of their way to make sure your stay is the best it can be. Have no hesitation about staying at one of their properties. That have always gone out of their way to cater to our specific needs. The only thing I would say is that the little casita may not be suited to small children or anyone with physical limitations due to the number of stairs up and down from the pool area.

Owner's Response: We appreciate your kind words and we always enjoy having our guests return; in fact, that is the HIGHEST form of compliment paid to us! We strive to set the BAR for all of our guests. Each of our Beautiful Beach Properties are designed for different functions- some are for family gatherings and some are for Romantic Get A Ways. The Casita is the perfect Romantic get a way, a private excursion for two, tastefully tucked into the bank for the best viewing pleasure of the Pacific Ocean!

Unfortunately, due to extenuating circumstance our group had to just cancel our reservation at this property. So my review is not on the property, but of the excellent customer care that was given to us through the booking process. We were travelling with a group of 27 (renting more than one house) and to coordinate everyone there were many changes made over many days. The owner answered all of our questions and took the time to make sure we had everything we needed. I am sorry it didn't work out - to no fault of theirs, but I am thankful for all of the help this owner gave!
