Beautiful, colorful, surfer's getaway house. Comfortable - with several areas for sitting and hanging out - each bedroom has air conditioning and comfortable beds. The house has wifi and cable TV. Great view of the beach and river- spectacular Pacific Sunsets most of the year. Property has dozens of coconut palms; walk out the back to the riverbank and the beach - a few feet to the right to a great sandy beach (Sunzal) or to the left to the best surf in El Salvador. Walk to Kayu for surfing lessons, or a little further East to El Tunco. The house has a well stocked kitchen, linens and towels. Outdoor barbecue and shower next to the pool, a large covered sitting area with a pingpong table, amazing views of the ocean and sunsets from the upstairs, and extra parking inside the property! This house is FUN and beautiful.
The house is a 7 minute drive to the Port of La Libertad, where there are two modern Super Selectos grocery stores, and an awesome pier with freshly caught fish and seafood daily. Stroll down the Malecon or sit at one of the several good outdoor restaurant with a cold beer.
Extra services: Daily cleaning service is included with the house. Cooking, cleaning, shopping, driver and laundry can be arranged by owner.
You can also order delicious Salvadorean food daily from Mati at the Restaurante El Sunzalito on the main road and she will have it delivered. The ladies at the little tortilla stand at the turnoff of the road make fantastic pupusas for additional fee per dozen and fresh tortillas are 6 for a quarter.
I am Salvadorean-American and live in San Francisco, CA. Like many Salvadoreans, my family is spread all around the world, and this house is the spot where we all come back to -to see each other and our beautiful home country. I employ folks from the community and pay them a living wage.
Myrna Melgar purchased this house in 2013
Because it's awesome! The location is fantastic and everyone has fun - young, old - the Salvadoreans, the Americans, the Europeans in the family - the elders, the teenagers and the babies
There is nothing like swinging in the hammock by the pool under the coconut trees with a cold Pilsner beer in your hand!
My wife and I with 5 grown children just stayed in the home from July 5th to July 12th. Myrna was great communicating with us several times before the trip on where to shop for groceries and fun things to do while in Sunzal. The home is large lots of room. Fully equipped kitchen. It was great to have the pool right out back with the hammocks and gate opening up to the ocean. We swam in the ocean out back on low tide water was beautiful. We enjoyed the ping pong table, foosball . dart board, also. Thanks to Chepe and Marta, they cleaned the pool and home everyday and were on call for anything we needed. This home is a great price and in a great location. Close to beach out back and the Sunzal point with great surf , close to El Tunco beach and restaurants and only about 10 minute drive into La Libertad with a really nice clean grocery store and other restaurants. The home in a private area with other homes , gate to enter the area and the home is gated and lots of parking inside the gates.
Thanks again to Myrna and her staff , we had a great time, got some really good waves, we will definitely see you guys again when we return.
We loved staying at Casa Sunzal! This was our second time visiting this location and everything was excellent once again. Romeo, Chepe and Martha are available to bring you water, cook meals for you if desired, take you to the grocery store for supplies, and conduct daily maintenance of the pool and grounds - which was very nice. Martha and her daughters keep the house tidy and clean, and the beach towels and fresh sheets were a bonus.
Casa Sunzal is very simple (not the Ritz Carlton), yet has everything you need, from a fully stocked kitchen, a/c in the bedrooms, dining areas, an upstairs lounge area with TV, as well as an outdoor bbg area, additional lounge areas, ping pong table, and hammocks where you can watch the sunsets, and an INCREDIBLY cozy pool that you'll find yourself lounging in for hours on end! We especially loved that you can hang one of the hammocks between two palm trees, OVER the pool! Does it get any better than that?? !!
For surfers, you couldn't ask for a better, or safer, location.
Close enough to walk to it, we enjoyed the surf every day, as well as the pupusa stand that offers yummy eats at cheap prices.
It's also located very close to the town of El Tunco, which is a bustling little surf town, and Chepe is usually available to drive you there and pick you back up, if you don't feel like walking the 10 minutes to town.
Myrna the owner, was available by phone or internet (good wifi in the house!), and answered all our questions promptly. She's a wonderful lady with a heart for her home country and people.
We are already planning our return trip in 2017... can't wait to get back to this awesome paradise!!
We enjoy our stay at casa Sunzal, the pool and the acces to the beach was a plus ,the whole back yard is a paradise, very romantic at night w all the lights, the inside is very hot, there is air condition in the bedrooms, but no air or fans in the living areas, the pots and pans are useless and the blender broken, we were never offer to come and clean the house, other than that is safe and fun to stay
Hermoso lugar , muy seguro, la gente de la zona muy amable es un lugar agradable para pasarse unas vacaciones muy relajante
Beautiful place, very safe, people very friendly area is a nice place to spend a very relaxing holiday
This place was great! It was spacious and clean. Myrna (the owner) was exceptional and took time to answer all questions and address any request. It is located in a tight knit community where everyone lends a helping hand. If planning a trip to El Salvador, I would definitely look at this house as the place to stay.
We loved our stay here and wish we would have booked for longer. The house was very large and had tons of room. The outdoor space, beach access and pool were incredible! The caretakers came by to sweep and clean everyday which was a nice luxury. Location was great as it was gated and very quiet, but it had a few dining options within walking or short driving distance. All 5 of us ate pupusas for dinner for less than $5 for all of us a few nights during our stay. Myrna was very helpful and responded quickly to any questions that came up. My kids absolutely loved swimming in the pool and there were rafts which were great. Internet was good and having AC in the rooms made things so much more comfortable. I'd stay here again in a heartbeat!
Fantastic surfing location! Casa Sunzal is in a small development tucked away from the main road. The back yard abuts the river and the beach - to surf one of the 10 best surfing spots in the world! Less than 1/2 mile to El Tunco nightlife, the port of La Libertad, and 10 minutes to Walter Thilo Deinninger Nature preserve for hiking, spelunking and ziplining. The house is a 40 minute drive from the Comalapa Airport and about 45 minutes from San Salvador. Great access to all of the Western El Salvador beaches, Parque Nacional El Imposible, Archaelogical sites in Western El Salvador - Tazumal, San Andres, Joya de Ceren. 1.5 hours to Lago Coatepeque and Volcan de Santa Ana.
