About the Property

2 bedroom, 2 bathroom (one of them in pool area), Ocean View

This serene beachfront property of approximately 1500 square meters is just 20 minutes away from both a surfing area and Decameron Resort. On this quiet beach of Barra Salada, you can rest easy enjoying clean drinking water supplied by a Canadian filtration company.

The property is beautifully landscaped and its gardens are maintained by a caretaker couple. Beto and Sonia provide housekeeping and can also provide cooking services if required. The couple who lives on the property, is well known and respected in the Barra Salada community.
Their quarters are far enough from the main building to afford guests privacy, yet close enough to be reached with ease when needed. Beto and Sonia speak some English, have lively personalities and are always eager to converse with visitors.

Some special features of the property include an outdoor living area and bar, an air-conditioned main bedroom & fan in the second bedroom, traditional stone barbecue, two outdoor showers located by the pool and beach,

3-piece poolside bathroom and sheltered bench on the patio onlooking the Pacific.
Fresh seafood is available through the local fisherman who sell their catch on the beach each morning.

If you like fishing, you can rent a boat right on the beach or can arrange to join one of the local fisherman.

This is an ideal spot for your vacation, whether you are looking to be pampered or to enjoy a quiet uninterrupted escape.

Other Amenities

  • A couple of surfing resorts are a 20-30 minute drive away. They are called Playa Mizata and Playa Sunzal. Playa Mizata (with its warm water year around) is likened to famous California surf locations...with two huge exceptions...first generally has the waves to themselves, and secondly, the wave is very consistent. The point break is the most known of the breaks, but there is also a beach break and the reef break. Water is clean and warm and best of all, most of the time you will have uncrowded waves, unlike Sunzal and Tunco, which these days seem as crowded as most California surfing spots. There is also a seaport called Acajutla 20 minutes away. A common tourist destination and resort called Decameron is at about the same distance from the house. The area is full of mountains, volcanoes, rivers, lakes and beautiful views for you to explore. Many are tourist attractions with restaurants and other amenities. ...moreless

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

Why the Owner Chose Sonsonate, El Salvador:
Even though it is not possible for me to live there right now, I love this place and am attached to it for its sentimental value. It is in a very quiet area where I feel safe. It's far enough from bigger towns that I don't have to worry about crime and can spend my nights sitting outside looking at the ocean. When I am tired from crowds and the commotion of big city I enjoy the serenity of this place. The beach is never crowded and I can enjoy listening to the sounds of the waves there through the days and nights. The people in the village are nice and friendly and the cost of living is low. This will be important to me in retirement. Most groceries shopping can be done at local farms and I know that I am eating all healthy, organic foods. I found there everything that I am missing when living in Toronto. I enjoy the peacefulness of this area. However, I can drive 20 to 30 minutes to spend a day in the nearest city or tourist attraction whenever I miss the life and activity there.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
When I first saw the house, I fell in love with it. It was the perfect place for our retirement and I loved everything about it: the peacefulness, the sound of the ocean (that you can hear in every spot of the property, even in the bedroom with the windows closed), the gorgeous landscaping and gardens, the long beach where you can walk for hours, and the patio that is practically located right on the beach. The house was something my husband and I had been dreaming of throughout our life of hard work. I am sure if you spend time there, you will understand what I am talking about.
