About the property

400 M2, 3 Bedroom, 4 Bathroom With Ocean, Estuary And Mountain Views (Sleeps 12)

A truly spectactular setting... The House sits in a peninsula near the end of La Barra de Santiago Beach in El Salvador. Pacific Ocean view to one side, and the Estuary with a beautiful view of the Mountaneous range of El Salvador to the other. The house is modern and very comfortable, incorporating beautiful views from every room. The master bedroom is on the 1st floor and has a king size bed with 2 twins with views to the Ocean on one side and to the Estuary on the other. The second room sits on the 2nd floor and also has a king size bed and 2 bunk beds, it has cross ventilation, and beautiful views to both sides also. The third room has a Queen size bed, and 2 twins and only faces the Ocean side. All rooms have a full bathroom and A/C. A beautiful terrace on the second floor is a perfect place to enjoy a glass of wine, read, or simply gather to relax and enjoy the sunset or the dark sky!

On the ground floor, there is a spacious living room with flat screen TV and DirecTV is available. The inside dinning room in case of bad weather sits 8, and the outside ' rancho ' sits 14 on 2 tables. The house is raised from the beach level about 1.5 meters so the breeze and views to both sides can be appreciated from the Deck of the Rancho, also creating a special setting for the beautiful pool in the property.

On the bay side, as we call it, you can find a small boat with a 90 HP Yamaha which is great for for water skiing, wake boarding, fishing, or just cruising in the estuary! Also included in price are 2 Kayaks. Waverunner / Jetski can be available to RENT by a third party. All activities are at your own risk. Though, Jose Mario at the house will provide guidance and supervision if so desired.

Lifejackets are available.

On the bayside also, sits a deck where you can enjoy the beautiful views of the volcanic range along the estuary. The deck sits in the shade under a local 'Chiribisco' tree and some coconut trees. BTW, our coconut water is delicious!

beach vacation

  • 3 of 5

The house in nice and clean, the location is also very nice. The house keeper Jose Mario his wife and Jose are top notch, very help full, they help with the cooking and cleaning. The property did not have a wave runner and a motor cycle as is offered.

The house does have only salty water, that means that you have to shower, brush your teeth etc. with out fresh water.

That is a mayor problem and gets worst with small children, after two days with salt the skin begins to get dry. I think the owner should tell this before you go there. You need a four wheel drive car to get to the property.

Owner's Response: Dear VRBO Clients, Our fresh water system stopped working right before this rental and unfortunately and it could not be fixed in time. The problem has been fixed and we now have FRESH water. Waverunner is not available but we do have a small ski boat, one 4-wheel bike and 2 kayaks that are available to clients.

Vacation like the rich and famous

  • 5 of 5

Your own pool - check; your own cook - check; - your own boat - check; your own beach - pretty much and the list goes on and on. The property is extremely well maintained and clean and the location is just stunning with water almost all around you.

Our stay was pure luxury vacation, with everything at our fingertips. As the previous reviewer already mentioned, everything is top notch, the scenery is amazing and Marta, Jose and Jose Mario made our vacation extremely comfortable, we felt like celebrities, you ask and it shall be done. Jose Mario is the most amazing BBQ master and BBQ my husbands catch of the day to perfection. Manuel - who owns this beautiful place - went above and beyond to accommodate all our wishes.

The house comes with an ATV which came in very handy for us when cruising down the beach to visit the local tiena and have a cold cerveza as well as cruising along the beach and gazing at the beautiful sunsets. If as an American traveler you are ever concerned about safety - you don't have to be on the Barra di Santiago - it is very safe. There are fishing opportunities in the ocean in the front or in the estuary in the back, you can do an Estuary boat tour with Mapache, eat fresh Lobster that gets delivered to your door or hire a driver for excursion to the Ruta de la Flores or visit the Mayan Ruins in El Salvador. Plenty to do or nothing, its really up to you and yes Marta's coconut ceviche is to die for!

Thank you again to Jose Mario, Marta, Jose and Manuel for an unforgettable time in El Salvador and for opening your amazing house to us. We are already dreaming of coming back soon!

Very relaxing beach vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at this property was simply perfect. The house is amazing - open, modern, beautiful but cozy and comfortable at the same time. Plenty of beds in each room to arrange for families to share the house, which we did with friend's of ours. The kids and adults alike enjoyed the pool and the "baby pool" (just one foot deep, I would say, and perfect for toddlers!). The house is on both the river behind and ocean in front and the views over the river are just spectacular - palm trees for miles and volcanoes dotting the horizon. We took the boat and jet skis out on the river almost everyday. The ocean is just a very quick walk over the sandy beach with warm water and waves safe enough for little ones at low tide.

And while the house and surroundings were amazing enough, the best part was the service. Jose Mario, Jose and Marta live next door to the house and take care of the property and guests. We brought food with us for the week and Marta prepared all of our meals for us. Plus, she makes the most amazing ceviche - coconut ceviche. You must try it if you go. Jose Mario and Jose helped us with the boat, the jet skis, kept the house, pool and everywhere else clean, even chopped down fresh coconuts for us! All the beds were turned down everyday while we played and relaxed outside. The three of them were wonderful with our children (our 4, plus the 3 of our friends). Travelling with children isn't always a "vacation" but this pretty much was!

This is the perfect place for you if you want the privacy of a vacation rental home but the service of a hotel. Truly, its the best of both worlds. I have been to a few different beach homes in El Salvador and I must say, this was my best experience, bar none.
