About Claudia R

Proudly Canadian, after 4 years of looking throughout Central America for the perfect beach house, I found this gem and knew I had to make it mine. Location could not be more perfect in every way. this gated safe community being central to everything that El Salvador has to offer. I currently live and work in London Ontario Canada. and look forward to retiring here. ( not soon enough )

Claudia R purchased this house in 2013

Why Claudia R chose Central America

The area is absolutely beautiful, with every convenience you could want. besides the gorgeous area and country it was Truly the people that made my decision SO easy unbelievably friendly. People do make all the difference!!

What makes this house unique

After purchasing the home, I immediately began with putting my touches on the home. with opening up the entire kitchen area and redoing it with Granite kitchen and unique L shaped island area, new stainless fridge and stove. then redoing all 4 bathrooms tiling floor to ceiling and replacing all fixture like sink toilet and installing all waterfall faucets. I replaced all furniture including NEW beds and new mattresses throughout all 5 bedrooms and 10 person custom kitchen table and unique island that will seat another 8 people.

Oct-No 2013 Trip to El Salvador

  • 5 of 5

This was my third time to ES but the first to a private home. I came with 3 other friends who were somewhat anxious about the activities that are common in El Salvador. This Beach House is in a gated community and during the week very few folks are around. The only people that you see are the caretakers of the homes on this road. I was fortunate to know the manager from my previous trips as a national tour guide who mentioned to me that someone from London had purchased this home. To find out that the owner worked near my home in London was wonderful. Among us we prepared to go to the Beach House.

It is a large home that certainly can have more than 4 visitors. With the caretakers, we were able to have our meals prepared everyday, the coffee ready in the morning and enjoy it from the deck by the beach. We shared ideas about cooking our food for many meals, we even had them make a meal that is customary for the indigineous people. The caretakers kept the house tiday and made our beds everyday.

Cuscatlan Tours offered a variety of tours but was willing to negotiate a tour that suited what items we wished to see. This time we did the Zip Line, the Mayan Ruins in El Salvador and of course some shopping! He even knows where to get the best local coffee at a good price. Julio is a national tour guide who speaks fluent English and French as well as his native Spanish.

Our group enjoyed the waves of the warm Pacific rolling in non stop. The waves were so loud at night that it sounded like thunder. The pool was great as well.

It was such a relaxing atmosphere. We could do/eat whenever we wanted which is so much different than being in a resort setting. Great for families with small children who go to bed early and adults can have some quite time. I know that I am planning another retreat to this location.

Family Reunion

  • 4 of 5

My family and I had a great time at this property. Darrick and Claudia were really helpful answering all my questions prior to arrival. The caretakers, Alfredo and Margarita treated us like family from the moment we arrived. The layout of the house was great and large enough to accommodate everyone. Margarita prepared all of our meals, she is a great cook! Alfredo was really helpful and made several trips to the local fish market for us. The dinning table was just amazing with enough room for additional family members that visited us for Christmas Eve. The private beach was great. We had bonfires several nights and the sunsets were breathtaking! We also took advantage of the coconut trees on the property to stay hydrated during the hot days.

My recommendation is to make sure the water delivery for the pool is scheduled ahead of time. When we first arrived, the pool was half empty and later on during our stay, we had to request the caretakers to schedule another water delivery for the pool.

Overall, this property was great! Thanks for all your help and we hope to return next year.

Wonderfully relaxing and stunning place!

  • 5 of 5

From booking to actually staying, everything was fast and efficient! The people who take care of the place and guests (Margarita & Alfredo) are extremely polite and quick, they are there for anything, nothing is too big or small.

Now the house is simply amazing!

The decor, the pool, and the backyard there's no aspect that my family and I didn't love. There's a deck overlooking the ocean which has to be the most awesome part in my eyes, catching the sunset and sunrise from there and just spending time lounging around. I would highly recommend it! Left there yesterday and I already want/need to come back!

Great girls week!!

  • 5 of 5

Me and my girlfriends wanted to take a week off and escape to paradise! When we booked the trip we had no idea that there was a weekend rodeo festival going on in town. We went into town, saw bull riding, ate great food, and had an amazing time at the disco! Everyone was so nice and welcoming! We took a trip to the mountains and went zip lining, the views were so gorgeous! We treated ourselves with a hot spring spa. At the house Margarita and Alfredo were so helpful and kind. They cooked and cleaned and it really felt like a get away to paraside. I had the time of my life and I can't wait to go back!
