El Salvador House Rental Photos and Description

3 bedroom, 3 bath river and beach front house with pool - sleeps 8 -10

Beautiful, colorful, surfer's getaway house. Comfortable - with several areas for sitting and hanging out - each bedroom has air conditioning and comfortable beds. The house has wifi and cable TV. Great view of the beach and river- spectacular Pacific Sunsets most of the year. Property has dozens of coconut palms; walk out the back to the riverbank and the beach - a few feet to the right to a great sandy beach (Sunzal) or to the left to the best surf in El Salvador. Walk to Kayu for surfing lessons, or a little further East to El Tunco. The house has a well stocked kitchen, linens and towels. Outdoor barbecue and shower next to the pool, a basketball court and extra parking inside the property! This house is FUN and beautiful.

The house is a 7 minute drive to the Port of La Libertad, where there are two modern Super Selectos grocery stores, and an awesome pier with freshly caught fish and seafood daily. Stroll down the Malecon or sit at one of the several good outdoor restaurant with a cold beer.

Extra services: There is a daily cleaning service available at the house, as well as cooking, cleaning, shopping, and laundry.

You can also order delicious Salvadorean food daily from Mati at the Restaurante El Sunzalito on the main road and she will have it delivered- for around. The ladies at the little tortilla stand at the turnoff of the road make fantastic pupusas for additional fee per dozen and fresh tortillas are 6 for a quarter.

About Myrna Melgar

I am Salvadorean-American and live in San Francisco, CA. Like many Salvadoreans, my family is spread all around the world, and this house is the spot where we all come back to -to see each other and our beautiful home country.

Myrna Melgar purchased this house in 2013

Why Myrna Melgar chose El Salvador

Because it's awesome! The location is fantastic and everyone has fun - young, old - the Salvadoreans, the Americans, the Europeans in the family - the elders, the teenagers and the babies

What makes this house unique

There is nothing like swinging in the hammock by the pool under the coconut trees with a cold Pilsner beer in your hand!

Great first weekend in El Sal

  • 4 of 5
Trip started off with great communication with the owner. Upon arrival the location was easy to find and the gate keeper/care taker was welcoming and immediately accommodating. The house itself was perfect for us. The AC units in each bedroom work very well and therefor I slept like a baby every night. The swimming pool was perfect, morning or afternoon. The only issue we had was running out of water in the middle of a shower, twice. But after a few minutes the water would come back on and all returned to normal. The tv turned itself off after 15 minutes but was not a big deal since we were not there to watch tv. Great places to eat close to the residence and very inexpensive. Great places nearby to learn how to surf although we did have to search a little for a rockless part of the beach for the kids to play. Overall great place to stay. Thanks to all involved in making this an enjoyable stay.

Excellent location, comfortable house... mind blowing surf!

  • 5 of 5
Had the best time staying here! We were here for two weeks and thoroughly enjoyed the location because it was very close to Sunzal- within walking distance actually, so we surfed it several times a day. The beautiful pool that called us each morning with our coffee to enjoy it's warm water and peaceful surroundings. And the charming decor within, that made us feel comfortable and at home.

It was exactly as it was described. The staff was helpful and attentive, always bringing fresh water and keeping the house clean and delicious meals cooked for us when we wanted them. Transportation to the store for groceries was available, which made NOT renting a car, the perfect choice for us.

We can't wait to come back and stay here again... and did we mention? The surf at Sunzal is AMAZING... and you're RIGHT THERE to enjoy it! Incredible home... and I couldn't recommend it more! We're coming back for SURE!

Amazing trip

  • 5 of 5
Could not have asked for a better setup. The place was fantastic, the pool was a perfect temperature, the AC was robust and the coconuts were incredible.

A special thanks goes out to Chepe for coordinating with our crazy travel schedule and for all the amazing locals we met along the way.

Rustic but nice

  • 3 of 5
This spacious house with an amazing back yard was great for my 3 yr old to run around and be safe in. The property has big walls on all sides so my toddler did not get a chance to run away into the water. We spent most days relaxing by the pool or splashing in it.

The house does need some TLC but over all a great place for surfers on a budget.

Great place to forget about the world and enjoy your family. Although the internet was very fast so in case you need it, you can access the world.

Don was helpful and his family too, but speaking Spanish would have helped us to communicate better.

The owner is always there to contact if there are any problems, she was very helpful and arranged for a lot of our transportation. We were able to rent a car and see Santa Ana and the Tazumal Maya archeological site.

Comfortable Surfers House

  • 3 of 5
This house is perfect for a group of 20/30-somethings or a family vacationing on a budget. It's not so perfect for someone looking for a luxury experience. The house is exactly as described with all the amenities. The back yard is very private and the house is safe and secure. The location is indeed relatively close to the surfer's beach but it's not easily accessible because the beach is not sand - it has large round stones that are difficult to walk on. Additionally, do not be surprised to find a lot of trash on the river side of the beach.

Don Romeo is super helpful, though you really need to know some Spanish to communicate well.

You should really have a car for this place. It's only 40 minutes from San Salvador so day trips are very easy. Five minutes up the street, we visited Kayu Resort and had a wonderful time - great bar with view of the surfers on the beach, nice, inexpensive breakfast, and individualized surfing lessons for $20. El Sunzal cafe is also a lovely place for a dinner experience - right next door to Kayu. Dinner at Betos was fantastic: go for the ceviche and the sunset view.

The owner is super nice and is clearly making a significant effort to maintain and upgrade the property. She was very attentive and wanted us to have a nice experience. The house's internet access was definitely a plus and offered a way to connect with the owner quickly and efficiently.

Fantastic surfing location! Casa Sunzal is in a small development tucked away from the main road. The back yard abuts the river and the beach - to surf one of the 10 best surfing spots in the world! Less than 1/2 mile to El Tunco nightlife, the port of La Libertad, and 10 minutes to Walter Thilo Deinninger Nature preserve for hiking, spelunking and ziplining. The house is a 40 minute drive from the Comalapa Airport and about 45 minutes from San Salvador. Great access to all of the Western El Salvador beaches, Parque Nacional El Imposible, Archaelogical sites in Western El Salvador - Tazumal, San Andres, Joya de Ceren. 1.5 hours to Lago Coatepeque and Volcan de Santa Ana.
