About the Property

Amazing out of a magazine villa with 3 huge bedrooms and 180° breathtaking views

CASA ALTA only 45 minutes away from El Salvador’s International airport and from San Salvador, the capital city.
Designed by an Italian architect for its original European owner, the property is unique, inside a private compound, perched on the best cliff on El Salvador's coast.
It has been recognized as one of the best beach properties in the country having been featured in T.V. ads and tourism books.
Recently remodeled using natural materials like wood, bamboo, stone floors, hand woven roofs and details crafted by highly specialized Salvadorian and Guatemalan artisans. The property has perfect combination of luxury and local comfort everyone desires.

It offers a blend of relaxation, privacy and incredible 180-degree views of the Ocean. From this prime spot you will enjoy the tropical sea breezes, bright blue skies unspoiled landscapes and unforgettable sunsets. During the right season even whale watching is possible if you are lucky, making your contact with nature complete and seamless.

Its interiors provide the perfect setting for a peaceful getaway to restore your soul, have inspiring conversations, let your creativity run free and create memories that will last forever.

Its 3 rented BEDROOMS are five stars quality with everything you expect, A/C, brand new hotel quality bedding and linens, modern furniture, each with a private bathroom and closet, with breathtaking ocean views and unique headboards exquisitely crafted with Guatemalan bamboo

CASA ALTA has a new and fully equipped KITCHEN, with the latest in silverware, glassware, table linens, electrical appliances and anything you might need. An open kitchen design makes guests part of the action as the chef make the most delicious meals with the fresh seafood bought at the local port or even collaborate and learn how to make our typical PUPUSAS.

CASA ALTA’s SOCIAL AREA is magnificent! The ample DINNING, LIVING ROOM, BAR and GUEST BATHROOM are beautifully decorated with several works of art from internationally recognized Salvadorian artists, furniture designers and interesting light fixtures. Inside the bar you will find the SOUND SYSTEM where you can adapt to you music device and can be heard in all of the social areas, inside and out.
This amazing space can be enjoyed open to nature or closed with A/C at your convenience, without losing the great views.

The MAIN TERRACE, is in a privileged position in front of the living and main dining room offers unparalleled views that can be enjoyed from the teak seating area or from a breakfast table that can be adjusted to sit from 4 to 20 guests for the most amazing gatherings.

At 240 ft. above the Pacific Ocean you will find the POOL and SUN DECK surrounded by tempered glass so that you don’t miss an inch of the majestic 180-degree views, while you are submerged in the pool. This area also includes an OUTDOOR DINNING TABLE where you can enjoy the most spectacular dinners under the stars.

In a beautiful and natural garden facing the ocean, is the JACUZZI, where you unwind and observe nature, sunsets and gaze at the beauty of the tropics.

Right next to the pool is THE PALAPA TERRACE decorated with modern outdoor furniture that can sit more than 20 people, perfect to receive a seminar, eat meals, paint or play any board game and still enjoy the great views.

The LIBRARY or FAMILY ROOM is where you will find the most comfortable leather sofa beds, A/C, TV, and DVDs, including a very interesting and international collection of books to explore. With its own complete bathroom this can also become a bedroom should the need arise.

Inside the ACTIVITY CLOSET you will find games, yoga mats, ‘Flowmotion’ equipment, and an array of acrylics and canvases for painting to let your creativity free, inspired by the beautiful surroundings.

One of the highlight’s in CASA ALTA is the private NATURAL POOL or ‘PILETA’ built into the ocean rocks is a natural wonder. To get to the PILETA you will have to go through an adventurous 200 plus steps that gracefully hug a naturally forested ravine. Once you get down you will be blown away by the power of the ocean as waves crash against the rocks that protect you, splashing on the pool when high tide is up. Sometimes you can even spot the oyster catchers, which can bring you their day’s prize directly to the house for you to enjoy.

The MAIDS CASITA is a large service area with 2 bedrooms, each one with its own bathroom and fan, washer and dryer, a big terrace with a kitchenette, dinning area and hammocks.

You can also enjoy a black sand beach complete with a social area at the compound's social facilities if the need to go out from CASA ALTA is felt.

CASA ALTA is located 3 minutes away from the best seafood restaurants in El Salvador and 15 minutes for the LA LIBERTAD port where you can find grocery stores, drugstores, ice cream parlors, burger shops and more.
We strongly recommend the local pier where an ‘out of this world’ experience is to buy the catch of the day directly from local fishermen and taste local culture and life.

Additional information about rental rates

Fees:

  • Refundable Damage Deposit $200
  • Taxes Not included

Notes:

Rate includes one 1 general housekeeper (Edwin) who helps with everything you need & his wife Marisa who does the housekeeping and helps out in the kitchen.

For more than 6 guests I strongly suggest asking for an extra housekeeper $20.00 per day, which you pay directly to her.

Amazing local catering is available at great prices upon request: Breakfasts $8.00, lunch & dinners $15.00

For easier refund of DAMAGE PROTECTION fee, we suggest guest bring the $200.00 in cash and give it to our keeper as you check in. He will gladly return it as you check out if everything is ok, which usually is. This is a lot easier than refunding your deposit or credit card.


Owner's cancellation policy:

100% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date.

CASA ALTA is located at 5 minutes from the best seafood restaurants in El Salvador and 15 minutes for the LA LIBERTAD port where you can find grocery stores, drugstores, ice cream parlors, burger shops and more.

We strongly recommend the local pier where an ‘out of this world’ experience is to buy the catch of the day directly from local fishermen and taste local culture and life.

El Puerto de La Libertad is one of the most representative tourist destinations in El Salvador. The resort includes a boardwalk, restaurants and an amphitheater, while small seafood markets and craft shops are located at the wharf.

Puerto de La Libertad, has one of the country's major ports, and is a good area for tourism and surfing, as well as for eating the delicious salvadorian "cocteles" or "seviches".

Ten minutes away is El Tunco beach, a small extention of beach in the middle of this area, the main spot is Sunzal pointbreak that is the hearth of all the town. The town is where you find the night life of La Libertad during the weekends, bars and restaurants with live music local bands every week! Popular for young visitors and also popular for the friendly local crew.

Playa El Tunco’s main activity is surf; which is why it offers many options for surfers of all kind of levels. Next to Playa El Tunco is Playa El Sunzal; Playa El Sunzal is a classic right point break with long lines, perfect for long boards and for surfers that wish to improve it skills. In the other hand; next to Playa El Tunco is La Bocana, which is the most furious left in El Salvador, it is a fast wave with tubular sections, ideal for dared experienced surfers. Between La Bocana and El Sunzal are 2 beach breaks: El Sunzalito and La Bocanita, these two get in perfect conditions mostly in high tide.

There is so much more, but we don't want to spoil it for you, grab the adventure, do the unusual.... come to El Salvador!!!!!

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1995

About the owner: I have a few passions... art, traveling, beautiful things, philanthropy, yoga and getting closer to God every day! I think most of them are present in CASA ALTA! Originally from Guatemala, studied in French and American schools and universities, I have lived and raised a family in El Salvador for the past 15 years and have fallen in love with the people and the beaches!!!

Why the Owner Chose La Libertad Department, El Salvador:
CASA ALTA was built by an Italian architect, for a very wealthy Italian businessman who fell in love with the property’s magnificent view. This gentleman used to visit his property once or twice per year, leaving a friend in charge of his house for the rest of the year. When this gentleman came to pass, his offspring decided to sell the property. Personally, I believe in life everything happens for a reason, and that coincidences are destiny, and not accidental. My husband had been a guest at the house and loved it so much, that when he found out he immediately decided to buy it. I had always dreamed of having a house like CASA ALTA, where my children could grow up and where love could be nurtured. It was here that I met my husband, where our romance begun and where our family started! CASA ALTA is a very special place for my family and I. Through the years, this house has become a very special spot for many people. A great deal of wonderful and memorable moments have taken place in CASA ALTA, from weddings to birthdays, to “just because” parties, and private and intimate celebrations. CASA ALTA has been the venue for pure joy, it has also been a place where people have felt closer to God. Contemplating the magnificence of the Pacific Ocean, the beauty of the fauna and flora surrounding the property, the beauty of silence, helps one feel serene and in tune with one’s soul. Friends have found new passions at CASA ALTA. Some have started to paint, surf, do yoga, cook or the simple pleasure a book can bring. For this one and many more reasons we named our house CASA ALTA. I often tell people that CASA ALTA is a magical place because no one comes out the same way as they first came. But you have to try it for yourself!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
CASA ALTA only 45 minutes away from El Salvador’s International airport and from San Salvador, the capital city. Designed by an Italian architect for its original owner a wealthy European industrialist, the property is unique, inside a private compound, perched on the best cliff on El Salvador's coast.
