The Story of 'Hermozo'...

For over 20 years our family has cherished this unique property as our private beach escape. The beach house is shared by four siblings that grew up in El Salvador: M. Hernandez + J. & A. Monico + O. Zetino (hence the name Her + mo + zo). Hermozo also represents the grandeur, luxury and spaciousness of our one-of-kind getaway.

We recently decided to share our Salvadorean oasis with the VRBO community and would be delighted to host you on your next trip to La Libertad, El Salvador!

Relaxing and enjoyable

  • 5 of 5

Thank you very much! I really enjoyed staying here with my brother! We had time to relax and lounge around! Don José is a pleasure to work with and always ready to do whatever he can! And the pool is perfect for a couple of active boys that love to swim!

Beautiful relaxing simple space: sun, balmy air waves and water

  • 4 of 5

Great buildings design to enjoy the open air, good people, pounding or lulling ocean waves and great hammocks to enjoy them from, immaculate and beautiful gardens and swimmming pools--even a child's pool, outdoor solar heated showers overloking the sea, open-air (closeable) kitchen, 2 air conditioned sleep casitas, one with private bathroom, tv, and dvd (I liked using the standing fan and listening to the waves). This is a lovely place to relax, enjoy diving into the waves (strong currents, so mainly at slack tide), swimming in the lovely pool, walking on the beach---the space! Down sides: no internet (they keep working on it), no English speaking tv (turned out t wa s great mssng the news!) and the sancuros, the no see-ems that bite and itch those who are susceptible (me), but not those I was with, thankfully. Don't rent a car: very easy accessible, enjoyable and reasonable transportation, with 25-cent microbus to and from town, and private drvers available with their vehicles. I hope to return!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your review. It was nice having you back and that you enjoyed and rested a lot. We try our best to offer a comfortable time to our guest by offering a nice and clean house, pool, garden etc. Wi-fi most of the times it works but maybe this time the device that you had was not compatible with our device, but with the cell phone that we provided you were in touch with your family. Again we really enjoyed having you with us,

An excellent stat as always

  • 5 of 5

This was my second time to rent this home with Olga. Excellent. I actually made a pretty significant mistake....forgot to tell her my party went from 2 people to 5 people! The home has sleeping for 5 (I already knew that) and Olga worked it out for me. I even locked myself out at 10pm, but an employee met up quickly and let us in.

Last time I stayed (several years ago), the wifi didn't work. But now, they have a mobile hot spot. They invited us to take it with us, so we had wifi everywhere. This is a nice addition and gave us some sense of security.

I've rented nicer places in ES, but this outdoor kitchen experience has a lot of charm and a special place in my heart.

If you are looking for a safe, well maintained, well serviced rental right on the beach, this is a great value.

Thanks Olga!

Interesting experience

  • 4 of 5

Overall this was a good place to be. Great location right on the beach.

The owners, Olga and Jose showed genuine concern for our comfort and well-being.

Jose and his wife and daughter were great with their services, and we really enjoyed the tour of San Salvador, their lovely home, and the tour up the volcanic mountain. And we appreciated the ride to the airport. The house with location on the beach and also with its own swimming pools would be ideal for a family with children or teenagers to paly in the ocean and in the pools

The property was kept clean by a gardener and a housekeeper.

One drawback was the internet connections were intermittent.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the great review, it is our goal to do everything possible so our guest have the best experience ever while visiting El Salvador, we care so much for your well being and that is why we guide you and give you so much information. I am so glad you got the chance to visit our volcanoes and to explore a little bit parts of the city (thanks to Jose). Regarding the internet, we are maybe the only one who offer that service and since we are so close to the water we experience sometimes some difficulties, but we still trying our best to offer a good service overall. Again thanks, for choosing Hermozo and we hope to have again in the future.

El Salvador is quickly becoming the 'New Costa Rica'. It's tropical climate and affordable prices are beginning to attract a larger number of travelers looking for a distinctive and authentic get-away.

La Libertad is the most attractive leisure / surf spot in the country. The open air beach house is situated on one of the most private sections in the La Libertad area. We are about a half mile south of the La Libertad pier, which is next to the internationally famous Punta Roca break (a long hollow line). However, there are pristine waves to catch all across the area, including right in front of our place.

Here are some of location highlights: Black sand beaches | 80 degree Fahrenheit water | Fresh fish and local fruits | Cheap prices (on everything) | 1/2 hour from the airport | Pool / hot tub at the house | Secure and private property
