HOW TO GET THERE

A very simple way to reach Costa del Sol.

Going out from the International Airport, after 5 kilometers headind to San Salvador take the first road on the right (Direction San Miguel).

Run 8 kilometers and take the first road on the right (Direction Costa del Sol)

Run 7 kilometers and take the first on the right ( to Costa del Sol).

Run 8 kilometers and follow the beach on the left.

Run until KM 71.5, and turn right at Abarroteria Lopez, just after Hotel Suites Jaltepeque.(1/2 mile further)

HOW IT IS

PotoPoto, house of charm designed for family leisure and romantic escapades, is an absolute must .

Everything has been designed to offer a safe, secure and pleasant stay in El Salvador's best beach.

Our mission is to offer the family the best place can be found in Costa del Sol at an affordable rate and with an uncommon rapport.

This cozy house of charm, set on the Costa del Sol beach, next to the famous 'El Jacalito' is a spot for sea lovers. This family house, loaded with bikes, surf boards, bodysurf boards, fishing rods and sun umbrellas is everything a family needs to spend the time of its life.

When included in the rental fee, a light breakfast ( farm eggs, red beans, coffee or tea for up to 10 persons) is served on the morning on the deck, at the edge of the waves.

Then, take a sun umbrella and enjoy the beach.

For lunch and dinner, ask Orlando to provide the fresh giant shrimps, lobsters or Robalo fillets that you will cook with Helena's help. Provide coal or wood, and Orlando will gently light the barbecue for you. If you prefer the local delicatessen,' pupusas', you will be delighted by Niña Tey's famous ones.

Ask Orlando to arrange for you a tour on the mangrove, or a trip to savage Boca del Lempa: ideal for birdwatching! Take a trip to deep sea and watch the fabulous variety of wildlife there: dolphins, turtles, ray manta, tuna... Orlando arranges everything for your convenience.

Back to the house, enjoy the hammocks, sip a coconut, and relax. That's why you are here, under the palm trees, stirred by the breeze.

Sunset is a magic moment you will share with your beloved ones on the beach.

After dinner, take a book, watch a DVD (large choice of movies in the library) or , if you prefer, play backgammon, scrabble, chess or cards.

At night, after a warm shower in your private bathroom, have the best rest of the year in the lovely air conditioned bedrooms( A/C only 8 pm to 8 am and 2 pm to 4 pm: additional fee for permanent A/C).

Helena sanitizes the entire house for you every morning. Three bathrooms are equipped with greek queen beds. A large bedroom with 4 single beds delights all the kids who can experiment gregarism at their ease.

Enjoy life on the tropics: after all, you deserve it! Orlando and Helena, the housekeepers, are discreetly in charge of the comfortableness and leisure of our guests.

They maintain the property in an optimum condition for them and are helpfull in many manners during their stay.

Yes: be confident that everything has been designed for the safety, security and leisure of the family!

About Serge Ouddane

Professeur at the Universidad del Istmo, in Guatemala, I am a family fan.

Ana, my wife, and I have 4 children and four grandsons.

We really enjoy this enchanting place that has been completely renewed in the 2008-2010 period.

Now, the children are grown up and we do not use the house as often as we should like to.

We feel lucky to own such an lovely place and are willing to allow families with children to discover a simple and natural life.

Our preferred guests will be parenting adults who want to experience with their children the ravishment of days rythmed by the sound of waves.

We prefer guests with a strong capacity to admire the creation, who love life passionately, and share these feelings with their children.

Yes: we prefer parents who teach life to their children and we lease the best classroom for these lessons: our very beautiful family house on the beach.

Serge Ouddane purchased this villa in 2000

Why Serge Ouddane chose El Salvador

First of all, because it is an elegant place: therefore, it is not crowded, people care about it, and it is safe.

Then, because it is located half an hour away from the international airport: after a long journey, you get home easily and quickly. When in Costa del sol Los Angeles is four hours away, and Miami three hours, for example.

Finally, because there are many things to do around: fishing, birdwatching, shellpicking, fine cooking and , of course, farniente.

What makes this villa unique

Time for me, Time for the family, Time for friends.

Time for a cup of wine, time for a real fire on the beach, time for freedom.

Space for the eyes, space for the feet, space for new ideas.

The pleasure to walk barefoot on the grass, to feel the breeze on the skin, to breathe an unpolluted air.

Guestbook comments from the owner

2011/10/9 wilber quintanilla

Hi Serge,



I have been tremendously busy since I came back from El Salvador.



I am happy to tell you that I enjoyed staying at your place at Costa Del Sol very much. I enjoyed the fact that it is so closed to the beach and the serenity it has because of its proximity to the ocean. I was able to relax and really unplug from my busy life in the US. And Orlando and his wife were tremendously helpful and very nice. Overall, my experience at your house was great.



There are some things that I would improve to make the stay more complete and I would like to share them with you if you would like. Please let me know as I believe my suggestions may make staying at your place even better (my stay was wonderful and very enjoyable)



Nonetheless, I would definitely stay at your place again and I would strongly recommend it to my friends and family.



In fact, I have a friend named Jose who will be contacting you about renting your house as he will be coming to El Salvador in the next month.



Please keep me in mind and I will certainly keep you in mind for future plans.



Kind Regards,



Wilber

Excellent location, incredible paradisiacal feeling!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at Potopoto for three unforgettable weeks, we came at the end of June when the weather can be rainy or cloudy, instead we got super clear blue skies during the day and fresh rainy nights.
The renting transaction was very pleasant communication with the owner was fast and clear throughout.
In the house you can immediately notice that the owners have paid attention to detail on the services and utilities it offers. The pool was well maintained and recently cleaned. The grass, palms and gardens were all very good taken care of.
What is important to notice is that the rooms were cleaned every morning, and changed sheets every 3 days, each room has its own bathroom which makes a huge difference to other houses in the Costa del Sol.
The setup of the house has a bit of a camping ground (ranch) feeling, where you feel the beach and the palms the whole day. The kitchen and eating place sits next to the pool, and the beach literally 50mts. from the pool, this for us was the greatest plus of the house.
We will definitely come back, I hugely recommend PotoPoto!

Relaxing times

  • 5 of 5
Short drive from the airport and Fairly easy to find, with a convienant little grocery store and pupuseria leading the way. Enjoyed everything about the property. Loved the kitchen by the beach and all the bedrooms. Nothing fancy but exactly what is needed for a relaxing and quiet vacation. Nothing in the area to really see and restaurants are very limited but we were looking for neither and thus did not affect our stay much. Food and whatever needed can be bought to you by the wonderful caretakers on sight if so desired, at your own expense, of course. TV was not operational and the AC units were not the greatest but if bedroom doors are kept closed, they are sufficient. Would recommend this location for those families that like to create their own fun, without all the modern day technologies.

A wonderful stay.

  • 4 of 5
Nice, clean,quiet place, The care takers were very nice and helpful. Orlando was always there for what ever we needed, he cut down coconuts from the trees on the property! Elena cooked for us.
We could heard the waves all night it was great! We had a bonfire on the beach, we enjoyed watching the stars, sunset and sunrise. A/C in every room, the A/C units are kind of noisy, the property is a bout 72 kilometers from San Salvador about 1 hr drive, 6 kilometer from La Puntilla.
We would stay there again. We stayed there in the middle of November 2012.
