Epic beach front home!!!
Voted #1- Best Beach House in El Salvador (3 yrs in a row)
Gated large yard is a professionally landscaped tropical paradise. Perfect surf at your doorstep. Our home, affectionately known as 'La Joya del Mar', is very private and safe. Located in a quiet neighborhood next door to the world famous Hotel Punta Roca which is known for it's mellow vibe and excellent seafood and bar.
It is located a little over thirty minutes from the airport and is about forty minutes to San Salvador.
Enjoy designer pool and beautiful El Salvador breezes.

Great and consistent surf, friendly neighbors, peaceful community, beautiful setting with the lush mountains on one side and the Pacific on the other.
Serenity envelopes you as you enter the property known as La Joya del Mar.
Just got back and can't say enough good things about our experience. The house itself is great. Right on the beach with a restaurant right next door that rents surfboards for $10 and has good food. Tunco, Zonte Sunzal all close.
But what puts this place over the top are the incredible people. Sergio and his family are the caretakers, and they are always there to help, and the pool and grounds are immaculate. Then there is the dog Fooki who will cruise the beach with you then settle on the steps protecting. Everyday Linda (the property manager) and her husband would stop by to see how things were going. Linda helped us get taxis into town to shop, cooked a couple of meals for us (she is a very good cook!), and was going to set up a waterfall hike for us (but the weather turned). Monty the owner was very helpful when we needed to contact him, and took care of everything beyond expectations. Thanks Monty!!! I highly recommend his casa.
It was really great to have them all around; the vacation would not have been the same without the help of these awesome people.
This is my second time staying at the property, and will be back again in the future! It is a short drive from San Salvador and located between Libertad and Tunco, making it easy to get to either places for groceries, restaurants, or night life. There is a nice restaurant/hotel next door where you can get drinks and food, as wel, which is really convenient. The kitchen is nice and open, with a great sitting area downstairs and a beautiful pool and back yard. Depending on the season and time of day, there is a great beach for walking, or during this time of year, for watching surfers. We love Foci, the guard dog, and Linda and her family are always very welcoming and helpful. Great for a quick getaway from the city.
This house is the perfect get away for anyone: amazing well kept up yard, pool, ocean front, tree house like rooms and steps away from two great breaks. Sergio and his family made us feel right at home while keep everything perfectly maintained and handing out great recommendations. The real bonus kicker is the guard dog Folki - wonderful, fun and protecting.
This house it's stunning we only stayed 3 nights due to high demand next time we'll reserve early, love to come at the end of each day to a private clean pool and private beach access our 2 teenage boys enjoy playing beach soccer with sergio and his son friends. I love fooky the guard dog felt safe knowing that he was on the stairs every night the property looks better in person, and the restaurant next door has great food and they can delivered to the house. Muchas gracias peppita y Monty for sharing your gorgeous Rancho!!! Hope to come back soon!!! 😘😘😘
My husband, 3 year old daughter, and I stayed at this vacation rental for 14 days in March 2014. The immaculate grounds, clean house, discreet helpfulness of Sandra and Sergio, and our experience in El Salvador exceeded all of our expectations. We had a fantastic time.
The guard dog, Foci, was immediately friendly to us and also guarded well. He was gentle and a great companion for our 3 year old, often following her movements in a friendly but protective way, even while on the beach.
The amenities of the house were well thought out. Having separate outdoor showers for the beach and pool were helpful, and the kitchen was well stocked with cooking utensils. We cooked our own dinners every night. Having a full sized, beautiful clean pool with a waterfall was a welcome relief from the heat. We found a large golf umbrella for extra shade in a market too. The a/c in the bedrooms was necessary to use at night.
The hotel next door’s WIFI is password protected so we couldn’t use their WIFI. The internet provided with the house requires a USB port and the connection is slower than North American standards.
We used the house as a home base to take day trips from and explored a large portion of the country. We also visited San Salvador a few times (downtown and central square, the zoo, Zona Rosa district, etc) and by using common sense and avoiding driving at night, we felt safe the entire time.
The Super Selectos in Zaragoza (10 minutes up the hill on the main road out of La Libertad) is larger, quieter, and has more selection and parking than the busy one in La Libertad. Another Super Selectos on the hwy into the Santa Tecla area (before the turn off to San Salvador), is even bigger and has a very large imported foods section, where we found pretzels, gluten-free food items, and other items we didn’t expect to see. We also bought inexpensive vegetables and fruit from the large market in Santa Tecla, making sure to wash them in purified water and grapefruit seed extract before eating.
We had an amazing trip and would highly recommended this house to anyone who is adventurous, and interested in or familiar with Central America. The grounds, pool, house, and beach are even more spectacular than the pictures show. It was a fantastic and beautiful place to stay.
My fiance and I were excited to spend quality time here at this house. We were not disappointed. Upon arriving the house exceeded the pictured displayed on this site. The grounds are very beautiful and the beach view is amazing. We were immediately greeted by Sergio (the grounds keeper) who was so nice, friendly, and helpful. He politely showed us around the house and explained all the house rules to us, which were all self explanatory and expected. Sergio also gave us helpful tips and recommended places to visit, places to avoid, and pointed us toward the right places to eat. The swimming pool was a place of comfort every day, as expected El Salvador is hot and humid and a day or night in the pool always hit the spot. Sergio, also adjusted the jets in the pool when we were in, but he was very cognizant about being private. The rooms were comfortable, but they could use upgrading. Sergio also made it a priority to secure the residence at all times screening and visitors before they were allowed inside. The most memorable experience about the house was "Fookie", the guard dog. We instantly fell in love with the dog, and if possible would have adopted the dog. Fookie would sleep at our porch and guard the residence and porch area. No strangers were allowed to get close to the premises without Fookie barking alerting us someone was close. A couple of scraps and dog food is greatly appreciated by Fookie, needless to say he ate like a king while we were there. Lastly, Sergio introduced us to Omar, who provided is with delicious sea food, breakfast, and dinner. All meals were very well prepared at very cheap prices. The house, Fookie, and Sergio made El Salvador a memorable experience and leaving all three actually made us sad at the end of our trip. The house is worth it; it puts the beach, seafood, and relaxation at your finger tips. Highly recommended!!!
