QUIET & COMFORTABLE 3 BEDRM/3 BATH HOME DIRECT ON OCEAN . WI FI, A/C, TV
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.

Memorable and relaxing stay!
My wife and I traveled to El Salvador to visit family members and Rancho Cajun was the highlight of the trip! Our 3 night stay was awesome! Dianne was a great host and dropped by to greet us. The beach house has everything you need and it is conveniently located. We would definitely recommend and can't wait to return!
It was a joy to have you & your family. I am so glad you enjoyed staying at Rancho Cajun & hopefully I will see you & your family again in the near future. Thanks again for such a great review & choosing Rancho Cajun for your stay in El Salvador..
Very nice and relaxing two week stay
The house and property were very nice and Dianne is a great host. The best part is the beach access right outside the back gate is the sandy beach with ocean just steps away. The privacy is also a plus the back yard is very private and secluded for being in a close neighborhood. The area is safe and local people are friendly. Dianne’s staff is accessible and helpful as well as Dianne herself being available if anything is needed. The location is easy to find and get to and not far from the airport. We will definitely return. Thanks for providing such a great rental.
Thanks for the taking the time to write such a great review! I am so glad you & your wife enjoyed my house so much & everything worked out! I really enjoyed meeting the two of you & you'll were really great renters. I am looking forward to hopefully your next visit in May if you'll can get vacation time off from work. I am also hoping it wasn't too cold when you returned to Ohio. Until next time I see the two of you, have a great life & stay warm! Again thanks for picking Rancho Cajun. Dianne
Perfect as always
This is my second time visiting and I love the place. There have been many upgrades within one year and the house is amazing with the view of the ocean. What I love the most is how secure the house is, it's safe, the size of the house, and Dianne is always available if anything is needed. Definitely recommend to everyone!!
It is always a pleasure seeing you & your family for the second time! Thank you for writing me such a great review! Hoping to see you & your group again in the near future if you are returning to El Salvador. Also thanks for mentioning the upgrades since the last time you stayed here. My house is never perfect but I do try very hard to keep it up as much as I can so everyone can have a good experience when they stay here. Wishing you all the best until the next time. Again thanks, Dianne
This was my second time at Rancho Cajun. I must officially say now that I will never get tired of coming back. This beach-house is one of a kind. Diane is an amazing host and the locals are the most polite I’ve ever seen. I would highly recommend this rental! We had everything we needed, family, good food, beautiful view and amazing weather! See you in 2019 Rancho Cajun!!
Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review on my house Rancho Cajun. Also thank you for saying such kind words about your stay here. I am hoping I get to see you & your family again in 2019 & hopefully every year after that. It is always a pleasure to see you, your husband & your family. Sincerely, Dianne
Another great trip to the beach
This is the second time our family has stayed at Rancho Cajun and we enjoyed ever minute. It is situated on Playa San Diego which is a soft sand beach. The views are spectacular and it is relaxing place to walk or play in the surf. Dianne could not be nicer and checked to see if we needed anything a few days into our stay. My grand daughter loves playing in the pool and the yard has nice soft grass. It can get warm but the bedrooms are air conditioned so there is always a place to retreat to if you need to cool off.
I look forward to staying here again next year. We had 9 family members in total and it is large enough that we each had space to be together or do our own thing. Highly recommend this rental.
Thank you so much for taking the time to write such a great review on my house Rancho Cajun. I am so glad that your second time here was as good as your first trip to Rancho Cajun. Glad you mentioned the soft grass near the pool. When I walk across the grass with my bare feet, I always think the same thing, it is soooo soft. Looking forward to seeing all of you on your next trip to San Salvador. Your granddaughter is beautiful! Until the next time we meet, hope everything goes well with you & your children's life. God bless you & your family, I really enjoyed talking to you & looking forward to seeing you again in the near future. Dianne
A great weekend with my husband and Mother in law
I was very nervous while booking this home. You never know if you're going to get what you see online. This home exceeded my expectations the Landscaping the home itself was amazing! For breakfast you can sit out on the front porch for lunch if you want to have it by the pool there's plenty of tables chairs seating for everyone! Diane was amazing she was there when we arrived she was there for any questions that we had everyone loved their stay at Rancho Cajun. The one thing that I loved the most is my mother-in-law is in a wheelchair and the house was wheelchair-accessible in every aspect from the front door to the back door she had great views to watch the sunrise in the sunset. My family and I will always stay at this home when we are in El Salvador!
Thank you so much Angelita for such kind words about Rancho Cajun! I really enjoyed so much meeting you & your family. I am so glad it worked out so well for your Mother-in-law with her getting around in & outside of the house in her wheelchair. I hope I get to see you & your family again in the near future! You & your family will always be welcomed in my home. Adios until next time! Dianne
We have a turtle sanctuary in walking distance on our beach. There also is a state park just 5 minutes away. San Salvador is a short 30 minute ride and you can find anything you want there. Also a state park named Deininger Park is located about a 5 minute drive to the house
