Why Owner chose El Salvador

We loved the proximity to world class surfing spots: such as Sunzal,El Zonte. Conchalio to name a few as well of acces to many nice restaurants nearby, the enclosed gated community provides privacy and security 24 hours a day.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We stayed with 2 families at this House. The house is in great condition, super clean. The pool, outdoor shower, and outdoor dining space are just what we needed. The "private" beach down a series of steep steps with Iguanas running through the brush was a great way to reach nature quickly. The cost is on the high-end of what you can find in El Salvador but you get great value... having an in-house assistant for cooking, cleaning, and advice is a great luxury.The bedrooms are clean, the beds are great and they all have separate air-con units. There are great surf options about 2km east and west! There is an upscale restaurant nearby, you can buy tortillas off the street a few km away... but then retreat to the safety (armed guards) and comfort of the gated community. Normally we stay quite a bit lower on the price/luxury scale but for integrating some travellers new to Central america and having the softest possible landing from the us..this was a great spot.. only trouble is moving on.. other places were a let down after this!

Excellent property and very well kept

  • 5 of 5

This house was outstanding with great landscaping and wonderful outdoor spaces. The house keeper was very helpful and Marta was always a phone call away. Everything was as stated in all the information and no unexpected surprises upon arrival. The community seems very well protected from the friendly gate guards to the gentlemen patrolling the grounds. I would highly recommend more people to try El Salvador for there vacation. The people are always trying to help with what ever you need. Fausto the taxi driver was very helpful we used his services several times and he would translate as best he could for us. Beto's restaurant was a short walk from the gate and has to be one of the most beautiful restaurants I have ever been to. Marta has done a lovely job taking care to answer all of my numerous emails there really wasn't more I could have asked for. The beach is a bit of a walk but it is a lovely walk through the trees with excellent views of the very private beach and many spots for pictures. I appreciated when we are at the beach you would occasionally see the property guards coming around to check on things. I would definitely stay here again and hope to do so in the future. This place has everything you need and it is a real place you can relax and not feel pressured. Any supplies you need are a 15 minute drive away and Fausto will take you there and also wait while you shop. I really cant say enough about how satisfied I am. I will some it up with Lovely Home, Friendly Relaxed People, and no crowds.

Thank You Marta

LOVE LOVE this house Best location ever

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed in this house several times. I have brought groups of women and we always have a great time. The house is very well kept and has so many nice places to sit and relax, the best is the roof top deck over looking the water. Jessie the housekeeper is a gem. We always use Fausto to drive us and he is the best. Marta the owner has gone above and beyond for us. Do not hesitate to book this house, and when you do have Jessie make her shrimp for you.

Great house for large group!

  • 5 of 5

This property was wonderful for our group of 7. Separate bedrooms, with their own bathrooms and AC. The main house has large open kitchen and dining area, great for group meals. The pool and outdoor areas were inviting and relaxing, especially the second story "treehouse" deck with hammocks and incredible view! I read several books in those hammocks. It was our first trip to El Salvador and this house added to our memorable experience. And the fresh mangos from the tree in the yard - the best I've ever had! Carolina was very helpful, very quick responses. She even helped us communicate with the airline to locate a bag that went missing. Thank you Carolina! I highly recommend this property!!

Comfortable Home Away from Home

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful and comfortable home away from home on the Salvadoran coast. The house is clean and well appointed, with a nice pool to relax by. There is a walk down steps to get to the pretty, black sand private beach that is part of the community. A little steep climbing back up, but great exercise! I highly recommend this home as a great place to bring the family to relax and enjoy the fine fresh seafood (and surfing) in the area.

A truly relaxing holiday break for my family

  • 5 of 5

My family has been to at least 10 countries in south and central America over the past 15 years, but this holiday to El Salvador has been the most relaxing and enjoyable one. The holiday home is so lovely constructed and designed that you fall in love on first sight - the pool, the deck to see the morning rise, and the lunch place. It was so lovely to be able walk down to the beach within 5 min and enjoyed the peaceful morning swim. The owner, Martha, is extremely helpful and provided everything we needed. Most importantly, the lovely and kind lady who comes to the house everyday to prepare such wonderful meals for us to try. She has made our holiday very special. To sum up. Two reasons why this is the most relaxing holiday my family even had (1) Mathar's house - a true heaven on earth (2) the lovely cook, a local lady who has helped us to integrate our holiday with the local life. We went shopping with her to morning markets for fish and veg to plan the dinner. Another highlight of the holiday was the opportunity to visit a local church, invited by our lovely cook, to participate her church's Christmas eve celebrating with lovely music through which you could truly appreciated the kindness and happiness of those local people lived nearby. We will definitely come back this place with friends

Everything You Need

  • 5 of 5

There were six of us, three couples, that stayed in Marta's wonderful home in Xandau. Each couple had their own room with private bathroom. There is also a comfortable trundle in the living room with a community bathroom. The pool is beautiful and cleaned daily. The stairs down to the beach are right in front of the house and lead down to a rocky beach with a surf break that wasn't too strong when we were there. There is a community pool down by the beach front that is large and made for a great change of scene when leaving paradise. It was about a 15 minute drive into La Libertad, where the main grocery store is, and a 7 minute drive into El Tunco. When we needed to rent a car, it was brought to us. When we needed to get picked up from the airport, done. Marta provided every resource that was needed included a cell phone with all important contact numbers. With the wifi we were able to stay connected as well. Xanadu is as it connotes, a paradise. Highly suggested!
