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!

January 19th -22nd 2016 Vacation

  • 4 of 5

I recently stayed at the Villa Serena. Despite few misunderstandings in regards to some WI-FI issues the house offers many commodities I was looking for. I have been an annual visitor to the country, to this date I wasn't completely happy with previous homes visited in the past few years. I was impress by the service offered to my family and I by Carolina, Vicente, Flor for constant attention to our needs. I highly recommend this property if you're looking for a place to relax and unwind. Not much activity at night, except the ocean and the beautiful stars at night, we lucked out with a beautiful full moon. We left with a relaxed happy feeling. Thank you to Margoth for calling at the end of our staying to check with me , if our visit was satisfactory. It exeeded my expectations

Thank you

Sincerely

Giovanni E Daboub

Probably our best trip ever down south

  • 5 of 5

We said at Carolina's beach house from dec26- jan2, 2016. There were four adults and four kids ages 5-7.

House

Amazing! Such a beautiful and well maintained house. There were four large air conditioned bedrooms and a 5th smaller bedroom which we didn't need. The beds were so comfy. There is a large open air living room area which was great to relax in during the evening .

Pool

Amazing!! Perfect size and beautifully designed.

Beach

Amazing!! One of the best beaches we have ever been too. We rarely even saw other people on the beach. The waves were perfect for board surfing and the kids had a great time.

Food

Amazing. We went with the all inclusive and would strongly recommend it. The staff were great and they cooked some amazing meals.

Overall

This was our first trip to El Salvador but not our last. We always felt safe and secure and loved the fact that there were not a lot of other tourist. We will diffently be returning . Thanks Carolina for a perfect family vacation.

Great place to get away for a while. The rooms and bathrooms are big and clean, the place is comfortable and the staff is kind and helpful.

Definitely would recommend as a getaway for some days as the place provides all the amenities you need to stay comfortable.

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 !

Frédéric et compagnie !

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.
