About Darrick & Connie

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

Darrick & Connie purchased this house in 2012

Why Darrick & Connie chose World

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...

Relaxing and Peaceful

  • 5 of 5

Just like the name of the house “A wave from it all” is exactly how I felt. At first I was unsure about the location but after being there Don Alfredo and Margarita made us feel secure and welcomed. Loved the home made food, the walks by the beach, the peacefulness, close to the airport, friendly neighbors. The owner was extremely pleasant and great to deal with. Asked to stay an extra day and made it very easy to do. Thank you Darrick and Corrine for sharing your beautiful home and allowing us to create wonderful memories.

We really enjoyed ourselves and had a great time with our family enjoying the beach. The slope in the pool was absolutely perfect for our two toddlers. Also really appreciated Darrick’s helpfulness and quick responses. Definitely worth it!
