Family Vacations

  • 5 of 5

We had wonderful time this summer vacations at this house. The ocean, the private beach, the house and swimming pool were like Paradise.

We were a family group with a kid, teenagers, and adultos and All of us had fun and really enjoy the stay.

The house has enough space for social area and a privated hall with bedrooms.

Sure, we had great time and wonderful memories from this vacation ☀️

Thanks for your attentions and please give a special thanks to doña Margarita and don Alfredo. They really did great effort to make our stay confortable and happy.

Friendly and Very Attentive Host

  • 5 of 5

I was very interested in booking Darrick's beautiful beach house but we ended up having 25 family members signing up for the trip and due to space we had to very unfortunately pass on this beach house.

But I can certainly speak to Darrick's attentiveness and willingness to help make this experience a great one. He responded to all my questions very promptly (and let me tell you I had quite a few and very often) and was super friendly and always willing to help as much as he could. I felt as if I was speaking to a friend at times who listened to my concerns and cared to understand.

I would highly recommend working with Darrick as he will make sure your experience is everything you want it to be!

Best of Luck,

Best Vacation Ever!

  • 5 of 5

This was my first time renting a home other than staying at a resort. I was a little worried not knowing what to expect, but from the moment we arrived it was the most restful relaxing fun vacation I have ever had.

what I loved most was the ocean front home and 10 steps to the pool. we paid the Marga and Alfredo to cook and wash dishes ( 10 dollars a day amazing deal ). we had breakfast lunch and dinner when WE want not when we could squeeze in at a resort, or having to pack up beach stuff to go to the pool and beach all right there. the house and grounds are exactly or better than shown. sitting on the beach deck, laying in hammock or beach cover day bed with sea breeze blowing was perfect. i can not wait to go back here and may have gone to my last all inclusive because this has it all. thanks to derrick who was quick to answer all our questions and so quickly . thanks again

Cool Hideaway!

  • 4 of 5

As a Californian living in El Salvador, I am always looking for new beaches (and homes to enjoy them). This beach (Amatecampo) is a secret even amongst locals so to find a comfortable home on a beach like this is super rare.

The Area: Again, this is not where most people go. Accordingly there arent many ammenities. As long as you are happy with the basics, you are fine and everything you need is there. The caretakers were helpful getting us a few things we forgot (like charcoal) and the tienda had staples (like oil and beer).There are many beaches that I dont feel safe. Here I felt very safe and really took to the locals.

The Beach: Speaking to locals, the beach reshapes through the year. It is a long beach and great for walking or sand castles. It isnt great for little kids swimming unless you are right on top of them. I would really call this a longboard heaven. I regularly witnessed 8-10' waves that rolled for 20-30 seconds.

The Place: I personally loved it. Great balance here between modern ammenities like A/C, great matresses, and clean and modern kitchen with local elements like the rustic pool, hammocks, etc that some of the newer modern homes here miss. Warm water would be nice at night for a late shower. Brought some gringo friends that felt it was more "rustic" than they expected. My point was, this is El Savador...if you dont want a little bit of rustic stay in California :)

Beautiful views and ocean. The pool and kitchen were great. But for those from US this is lacking.

  • 2 of 5

We truly enjoyed the outdoors of this property. The caretakers made us a great lunch. Loved the large kitchen and the pool. But some items missing were toilet paper, soap in bathrooms and kitchen, also clean bedding. The rooms were dark and dirty. Need new paint and new lights. Bring your own sheets and pillow. Other than that we loved our stay.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your feedback and so happy you liked many things about the home. As for the bedrooms they are exactly as shown in all online photos and the new lamp shades are of Asian style bamboo lamp shades the are a softer light and not a stark bright lamp. In El Salvador even though a gorgeous country doesn't always allow to give comforts of a 5 star resort, and fortunately is far far less than a home like that .Happy to hear you enjoyed your stay. Thanks again Darrick

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 )

DARRICK purchased this house in 2012

Why DARRICK chose El Salvador

The area is absolutely beautiful! With every convenience I could want or need. 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 spending some time looking for the perfect place for us, this little gem became available, we could see that with a little love and removal of a few walls... that we found a great family get away! We have update almost everything in past 5 years from new roof, modern kitchen, tile in bathrooms, new furniture, large deck over looking ocean, putting in windows and doors, adding beach entrance to pool with stone deck and the latest addition is the Rancho on beach with hanging day bed. We are always looking at new thing to change or update and it is a work in progress but we love our little bit of paradise!! From our family to yours, we hope that you enjoy our little get away by the beach...
