About the property

5 bedrooms, 3 full bathrooms, sleeps 10

Villa Serena offers the finest of amenities in a rustic, private setting, replete with beautiful sunsets, warm salt waters & year round tropical splendor. 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. The 5 bedrooms encircle the atrium, which is open to the infinity pool, fresh sea breezes & a stunning ocean view. 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!

Another amazing vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was our second trip to this property. We again had a fantastic time. The house and staff our second to none. We went with the all-inclusive and the food and service was superb. The beach and property are perfect. If you are a beach person this is the place for you. We traveled with 4 adults and 4 children ages 5-8 and this was the perfect location. I would strongly recommend this property to families and maybe an adult get-away.

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

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.


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 .


Amazing!! Perfect size and beautifully designed.


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.


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


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.

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!
