The atrium in the house gracefully defines the interior & creates a place to relax, a place for conversation & encounter. The Villa is covered by a huge 'palapa' or thatch roof. The 'palapa' roof functions as a protective cover while at the same time creating a distinctive & artful flair for this tropical hideaway.

This unique, recently built 3,000 square foot villa, comes with fully equipped kitchen, dining table for 12, 3 full bathrooms, & a terrace that opens to palm trees where you can take 'siestas' on a comfortable hammock. It is tastefully decorated with your comfort in mind.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We really enjoyed the two nights at your house. Your house was very clean and beautiful! Miguel and Yanira are wonderful and very helpful people.



I think next time probably we are going to stay a little bit longer. Two nights was not enough for such peaceful and beautiful place! Now I understand its name Villa Serena!



Thank you so very much!

An amazing holiday

  • 5 of 5

We truly had a magical holiday in La Libertad at Carolina House. Really well kept house on a perfect almost private beach with sand bottom (no coral). Every one was really nice, Loly, Miguel and the whole staff who helped us making every thing really perfect. We were 6 but we easily could have been 10 or 12. It was really clean, the pool is a must as well as the AC in every room. The waves were a little bit on the high side with a current at some point strong where you had to be really careful in the water. We had in mind to surf a lot, which was probably not the best spot, but still had TON of fun in the water. Just go and you will certainly enjoy it.

Un séjour parfait au Salvador. 3 couples d'amis, (6 québécois), qui avons tous excessivement apprécié la maison. La piscine est parfaite, on y mange la plupart du temps très bien (nous avions engagé Loly comme cook, elle est excellente), les pupusas sont délicieux, et la plage parfaite. Il est bon de savoir par contre qu'à l'occasion, les plafond étant un peu haut, nous avons vu une ou deux chauves-souris tenter d'entrer à l'intérieur de la maison mais Miguel a à chaque fois réglé la situation, rien d'exceptionnel. Vraiment un séjour exceptionnel, nous recommandons la maison chaudement !

Peaceful and relaxing family stay!

  • 5 of 5

My fiancé and I booked your beautiful home for our intimate civil ceremony with our close family and friends. The house staff was amazing and very attentive to every detail of our stay. Miguel was always available and was so nice (my dog Bailey loved him). The house was immaculate and very clean. There aren't enough words to describe how at home we felt. Thank you so much for sharing your home for our civil ceremony and for a zen weekend getaway! I loved walking on the beach and having a relaxing time with my dog. We'll always have a beautiful memory of your home, the beach and of your hardworking staff! We are already in talks about renting it for vacation next year.

Big hugs from New York!

Love,

Guillermo, Jenny and Bailey (woof)

Beauty and Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We (3 couples) were at Villa Serena from 24 January to 3 February. Carolina, the owner, was instrumental in helping for the planning of our vacation. This included the private transportation from and to the San Salvador Airport and the Villa, and the transformation of our stay from a usual Home Away rental into an All Inclusive Resort type vacation. What else can you ask for? Your private Villa with Chef, including pantry stocking, housekeeping, gardening and private tour operator services. All services were provided by wonderful and dedicated individuals (Loli, her daughter and Miguel), and most importantly in complete happiness. The staff really made a difference. If that is not enough, how about this: Private pool? Private palapas? Private beach? IT IS ALL THERE, within 100 feet!

At Villa Serena, we got to see both the sunrise and the sunset. On a busy day, we could see up to a dozen people on the beach. We were literally alone on earth for 11 days. On a final note, none of us spoke Spanish. This, however, did not preclude us from having a great time. Carolina took care of all of our needs and with the help of a dictionary and sign language, we went by fine.

À nos amis francophones qui liront cette critique, nous vous disons ceci: laissez-vous aller et découvrez les délices culinaires Salvadoriens. Loli, la chef, s'en chargera et, croyez-nous, vous ne serez pas déçus. Elle vous préparera de petits mets exquis, souvent relevés de coriande. Vous devez goûter à ses "pupusas" et à ses "enchiladas".

Si vous aimez marcher, vous pourrez le faire en toute sécurité sur des kilomètres et des kilomètres de plage (sable noir). La mer vous offrira l'occasion de jouer dans de belles vagues. La pente y est quasi inexistante et le fond de mer est de sable. Il n'y a pas d'algues, pas de roches.

Durant notre séjour, nous n'avons effectué qu'une seule sortie: nous avons visité le musée du café, sa plantation et ses jardins, une belle expérience où un guide passionné a fait toute la différence. Nous avons ensuite dîné au restaurant "La Brumas", un restaurant qui est à flanc de montage. Pour terminer, nous avons visité "Le Boqueron", un des 11 volcans du Salvador. Notre chauffeur et guide, David, parlait bien l'anglais et nous a accompagné tout au long de la journée.

Abandonnez-vous à l'expérience d'un "tout inclus" dans le confort d'une Villa privée.

Absolutely Serene - Just like the name

  • 5 of 5

We were very late getting there due to difficulty with transportation as all rental car offices were closed at the airport including the one with our reservation. So by the time we arrived, it was around midnight but the caretaker, Miguel and Janiera (the cook) were up and waiting for us. Janeira had prepared an excellent chicken dish for us as previously arranged by the owner Carolina. We all took a dip in the pool and went to bed. The place is beautiful. It is open and bright and airy. Very clean yet not fancy. Very beach like - just like we like it. The pool has multiple levels which were great for our kids. The rooms were comfortable. The beach is amazing and was mostly our own for the entire time we were there. It was not very difficult to get around to the rest of El Salvador. We managed to get to as far as Santa Ana and Suchitoto and a few times to La Libertad and San Salvador. I recommend shopping at La Libertad for fresh fish and sea food every day.

Carolina (owner) was instrumental at making us feel at home and communicated with us quite a bit before our departure and helped us acclimatize and helped us set up the cook and the massage therapist. Thank you Carolina for letting us share this gem of yours.

The massage therapist, Alba was amazing.

We would definitely go back here. We loved El Salvador in

Excellent time!!!

  • 5 of 5

Me and my family visited this beach house for the month of November, great experience. At first i was a little sketchy of going here, but it was all worth it. My kids enjoyed it so much, they are begging me to buy a beach house like it. This is the place to spend a relaxing, safe vacation. The help was amazing, very humble and nice people. Hopefully we can repeat next year.
