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. 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 Playa San Diego
This property I bought in 2005 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.

Awsome stay at Rancho Canjun.
Our stay at Rancho Canjun couldn't be better. Love how the pool and beach were so accessible. Dianne couldn't be more helpful in finding good places to eat, and any questions we had about the area. The beds were very comfortable, and we had everything we needed for our stay. Lots of room, safe and very relaxing. Our vacation was great, and would love to go back. Thank you Dianne.
Thank you for taking the time to write me an excellent review. I really enjoyed meeting the two of you. It seem like the month you spent here just flew by so fast. I know this was your last country to visit in Central America but hopefully one day the two of you will make it back my way so I can see you again. It was a pleasure getting to know the two of you. Wishing you all the best on your future travels around the world.
Paradise by the beach
The Rancho Cajun house is perfectly located on a gorgeous wide and empty beach and 10 mn from La Libertad so access to restaurants and supermarkets was very essy. The house had all amenities required the kitchen is well equipped. As for the owner, Diane, she was so easy to deal with, helpful and so friendly,. She made sure our stay was nothing less than TERTIFIC. Don't look elsewhere, Her place is the place to stay at. We will for sure return there. Thanks again Diane.
Thank you for taking the time to write such a great review on my house Rancho Cajun. It was such a pleasure meeting the 4 of you. I wish all my guest were so easy to get along with as your group. I hope that someday that you return to El Salvador & I get to see all of you again. Dianne
Great property & very affordable! View is amazing1
We really enjoyed our stay at Rancho Cajun. We also felt very safe in the area. You can walk the beaches for miles right outside your beach gate. The house was amazing & you can see the view of the beach from anywhere in the house. The house was very clean . The beds were very comfortable with soft clean sheets. All Ac's worked great! We usually rent hotels when we travel but for this price per night on the water, you could not beat it. The house lay out was perfect because it is very open & has several different seating areas. We also loved the fact that we could buy our fresh vegetables & fruit right off the truck each morning. We also used the little restaurant down the street called Lilians & they would deliver food to the house when we called them. Each day around 3pm we would wait for the bikes that deliver the sweet breads. The price was so inexpensive. We do plan to return to Rancho Cajun on our next trip to El Salvador.
Thank you for your review. I hope that someday in the future you will come back to El Salvador & stay again at my house Rancho Cajun so I can see all of you again. Again, thanks for choosing my house.
Everything was great! From day one Dianne was there and came by daily to insure everything is great or if I needed anything. The location is great, there is a store near by that had everything I needed. The access to the beach was awesome! I will be back next time I travel. I definitely recommend Rancho Cajun to everyone!
It was so nice meeting you & your family. I am so glad that your stay at Rancho Cajun was a happy one & I loved having you stay here.! I am hoping that I will get to see you & your family again in the future. Please keep Rancho Cajun in mind on your next trip to El Salvador. Also thanks for taking your time to write me a great review. Dianne
A Place In The Sun
This was by far one our best family vacations. Dianne went above and beyond to keep the beach house stocked with all amenities and even better, beach chairs. My family had the best time in the pool with a place in the sun and digging for hours in the sand a few steps away from the house. Since we traveled from LA and San Salvador, there was no way we could pack those things offered by Rancho Cajun. This area of San Diego, La Libertad, was just perfect. While here, we visited many little areas around Pacific littoral. It was such a neat community with stunning views of local people, dogs and turtles. We went to the grocery store only a few blocks away. This house is spacious and very secure and very family friendly. We definitely want to return here!
Thank you so much for taking the time to write a really nice review for me. It was a delight meeting you & your family. I am glad that you enjoyed yourself at Rancho Cajun. Hopefully you will keep Rancho Cajun in mind the next time you visit El Salvador. Again thanks!
