About Dianne

I am originally from South Louisiana. In my 20's my son & I made our way to Houston. Worked my first 10 years in sales & marketing in the oil industry. Traveled the world for a few years and then when the oil market dried up in the 80's opened up a real estate company in Northwest Houston for 13 years. After 22 years of Houston decided to move to Florida to live on the ocean . After 6 years living in Florida I moved to El Salvador where house prices & taxes were affordable . I bought me a couple of houses, did some major construction & I have been here ever since. Not an easy task since I don't speak Spanish. Learning Spanish slowly but not as easy as you would think. My manager, Jackie & I have developed our own special Spanish after 7 years.

I know you hear of stories about how terrible crime is in El Salvador but I am a single woman living here on my own and never have understood why they say what they do about this country. I find the people wonderful and so much caring in them. Also living here has made me appreciate how lucky I was to be born in the U.S. where I had been given so many opportunities in life. All I have to do is look around me each day to understand that life could have been so much different if I had been born just a little farther South of the border. The good news is that I get to live on the ocean & never have to do housework again since labor is sooooo cheap. Love this country!!

Dianne purchased this house in 2005

Why Dianne chose La Libertad

This property I bought 9 years ago and have gone through all the pain of getting it perfect. I bought it cheap so it did not look anything like it does today. I have added special touches to this house everywhere. When you stay here everyone feels those special little things all around them to give them a real feeling of home. I love what I do and it shows throughout this home that I have built with love for both this house & this country. It has been up for rent for over 2 years and has become very popular. I wanted to offer people a special experience while they were staying in El Salvador with as many of the modern conviences I could for an affordable price. I love Playa San Diego because I feel I can mix with both the locals & the other American & Canadians that have retired here. Also I get tired of speaking in my broken Spanish so off I go for a little visit among friends right down the street. I love the location due to it being so close to both the airport & San Salvador. The other thing I love is the beach here. It is the most beautiful I have seen traveling throughout El Salvador. Also I walk the beaches without fear of anything happening to me. It is a small community and most locals know of each other & if something does happen, everyone knows who did it so it keeps our crime to a minimum. We have a local police station about 10 houses from mine and they patrol on bikes and foot. We also have lights on our electrical post so you can see at night if you are walking or driving. When I get bored or need to shop, all I have to do is take a 5 minute drive to La libertad. Love the location & convenience to everything. If I had to do it all over again with what I know today, I would still come back and buy in San Diego Playa. I hope you come to my house and enjoy the great experience of El Salvador as I have. The house looks like the photos so no surprises when you arrive.

What makes this house unique

WI FI INTERNET . AFFORDABLE...AIRPORT TRANSPORATION AVAILABLE *CLOSE to AIRPORT 30 minutes away, San Salvador* & SUPERMARKETS.....A/C IN BEDROOMS.. Satellite TV. HOT SHOWERS.

Great family home!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week at Rancho Cajun. I'm sorry I didn't write a review earlier but I was having some computer issues when I got home. My husband and I had a great time walking the beach in both directions from the house. The waves are a source of constant entertainment. Very big and very powerful. The yard and outdoor space are very clean, shadey and relaxing. Perfect for reading and watching the fishermen come and go. Diane was a perfect hostess and was a very big help with suggestions of where to go and what to see. She even invited us to a friends party down the street where we met people from just about everywhere.

Thanks Diane! We hope to see you next year.

Joan and Jean Pierre.

Owner's Response: Thanks for taking your time to write such a great review! It was so nice meeting the two of you after all this time. Hopefully one day again in the future, I will get to see you & your husband again. I am glad you enjoyed staying at Rancho Cajun. I recently purchased a beautiful wooden 4 poster queen bed & plan to put it in the room near the kitchen. I always found that room not to be as nice as the other 2 master bedrooms so trying to improve the looks of the house. I also finished adding the washing machine outside in it's own building so guest now have a washing machine to use near the clothes line. Please keep my house in mind if you ever decide to return to El Salvador. Again thanks, Dianne

Sit back and relax

  • 5 of 5

Rancho Cajun is a great choice for a relaxing getaway. We spent the week by the beautiful pool and powerful ocean. The house and yard are very spacious and offer all amenities that you would need. Dianne made arrangements with her driver, Jorge, for us to be picked up at the airport and all went smoothly. Jorge also took us grocery shopping and to different restaurants throughout the week. We loved Beto's restaurant and our trip to, El Tuco. Nathalie and Dianne were very helpful and always available to answer any questions that we had and suggested many things for us to do. We always felt very safe. Overall we had a wonderful week at Rancho Cajun. Nathalie was a terrific manager and Dianne was a wonderful host!

Cheers,

Sarah and Amy

La Libertad at its best. Close to San Salvador

  • 5 of 5

Was a great choice for us. Had different Salvadorean Families visit us and stay overnight. Worked out great for everyone. Plenty of room inside and out. The pool worked out well for the adults and little ones and the beach was also very nice. Would definitely stay again. This was our first time actually staying on the beach verses San Salvador. Love the country and people. Thanks Dianne.

Wonderful Stay Surrounded by Wonderful People

  • 5 of 5

Rancho Cajun was great! It actually exceeded my expectations. From the moment I inquired about our stay until the day we left the house, it was great! It was a total of 4 adults (2 couples) and we all felt comfortable and safe at Rancho Cajun. Safety was one of my main concerns going to El Salvador but there is nothing to worry about in Playa San Diego. The BBQ grill came in handy on one of the nights as we grilled and enjoyed some music while watching the sunset and hearing the ocean waves a few feet from the house! The pool was awesome as well. Every day in the morning it gets cleaned so that the water stays fresh for you! The air conditioners in the bedrooms are a plus as well since it tends to get really hot and humid in El Salvador especially around the time we went. My buddy even used the third bedroom because he was snoring too loud one night and his wife gave him the boot! That room also has some great A/C. There are also lots of fans throughout the property. Prior to our arrival we asked Dianne if she could help us find someone to pick us up at the airport. She recommended a young man named Miguel which also happens to be one of her property managers. He picked us up the airport promptly and we ended up feeling very comfortable with him that we hired him as our tour guide for the rest of our stay. My friend didn’t speak Spanish so it was a plus that Miguel knew English as well so that she could communicate with him also. Miguel was very easy to talk to and very friendly just like all the locals in Playa San Diego. I honestly cannot say one bad thing about our experience in El Salvador! If you love Pupusas like I do, there is a Pupuseria not too far which is actually walking distance from Ranch Cajun where they also have a jukebox and beer! Our first night we partied there until 3AM! 3 Pupusas for $1 …You can’t beat that! In the mornings if you do not feel like cooking you can just call the “tiendita” or store where they will make you a typical Salvadoran breakfast and deliver it to your house if you don’t feel like walking a block for only $3...Great location and great house! We had a blast and next time I decide to go back I will definitely be staying there and will look Miguel up to show me more of this beautiful country! You can’t go wrong with this house! Great people, great food around you, and great location! Vacation life!

P.S. Miguel’s wife Natalie was also great and had a lot of recommendations on what to do there. Thank you guys!

Great Value

  • 5 of 5

This Review is long overdue!

Thank you Dianne and Nataly,

From Joseph and Family of California. April 2016

First off the pictures are very accurate and shows as nice as the photos taken on VRBO.

We frequently travel to El Salvador with my Family and have considered This Beach Front Rental Home, as my Home Away from Home. Now six times we have enjoyed this house and, have made it our Destination and a place to have our Family Reunion. We usually have a Birthday to celebrate and this is the Perfect location, warm beaches, warm weather and clean private sandy beaches are steps from the house. The Tempter is just right and the Waves bring in some of the best swimming around. The Sunsets are also a favorite part of this place too.

Dianne is the Gracious Host and owner. She always makes it a point to see if anything is needed from Ideas of where to eat to making the home comfortable. There are many things to do at this Location, everything is minutes away. The Super Selecto’s is like having everything right here. There are mini stores steps from the gate.

We feel safe and comfortable with Dianne’s home and Recommend her house to anyone who wants a Beach front Property to have a fun and relaxing Time while traveling Central America.

Consider staying here the entire time of your travels here in El Salvador

Great Value Great location and Fantastic Hospitality, thank you!

Cheers, Joseph

The Pictures Don't Lie - Part 3

  • 5 of 5

This was a return visit for me and my 8 Guatemalan kids and grandkids. Not too much has changed since I wrote my earlier reviews (Parts 1 & 2) last year. The new manager, Nataly, speaks flawless English and her husband Daniel did my airport transfer ($40). Dianne is still her wonderful self.

I arrived exhausted and was so happy to see my queen bed with its memory foam. The master bedroom is ocean front, has 2 excellent reading lights whose switches can be reached while in bed, bedside table for water and coffee, and comfortable private bath. Waking to the sounds of the ocean waves was magical and I slipped outside before daybreak to watch the full moon over the Pacific. Security of the compound's excellent.

Rancho Cajun isn't shiny and new - it's a little worn and comfy like your favorite jeans or sweater. One needs to be gentle with the screens and sliding glass doors - but oh what a view with 5 doors covering the entire southwest wall. The northern most door is just 4'-5 ' from the lovely pool. Neto will probably have it cleaned before you're up for coffee.

Do take advantage of pre arrival shopping - we paid $20 (usually $10) as Nataly bought $198 groceries so our large family didn't need to shop for a couple of days. The supermarket is a 10-12 minute run and has prices comparable with our local FL markets. Using US$ is convenient, and there's an ATM at the market. I'd suggest bringing both ATM and credit cards here. My Visa worked well at the gas station, market and a larger restaurant.

Two sightseeing options we did this time were:

1) 6 1/2 hour visit to the San Salvador Volcano. We had a long lunch - but it's a wonderful place to have a picnic or to eat 'street' food near the visitor information center. It was a lot of walking and super crowded during the Easter holiday. The 45 minute hike to the top's optional with nice vistas reachable by car. The interesting archaeological site of Joya de Ceren is nearby. I'd recommend making it a day trip by visiting it first.

2) The nearby National Park Walter Thio Deinger is beautiful and wild with cold water, sodas, bathroom, and picnic tables. Entrance for 6 was $7. The Extreme Adventure course ($5) took an hour and was completed by my 9 year old grandson, 3 granddaughters and son-in-law. 3 guides worked with our group to guide them thru the many physical challenges. Rapelling was $3 and only completed by my son-in-law, the rest of us were content with the amazing photo ops.

Owner's Response: It was so good seeing you again. Thank you so much for taking the time to write such a nice review. I am glad you & your family from Guatemala enjoyed yourself at Rancho Cajun once again. I always enjoy talking to you so much but time flew by & I didn't get to see you before you left. Hopefully in the future, we will see you & your family again. Take care of yourself & try not to work too hard. We have just added airport transportation to our services ( which you used) & also sight seeing tours with an English/Spanish guide for our guest. A lot of time people don't won't to rent a car or drive to tourist spots so this way we are offering more options on their vacation for people that stay here. Adios, until next time I see you.
