About Tyler Trafas
Hola, I was born in the beautiful country of El Salvador, but came to the United States for it's wonderful opportunities. However, I always new I would be back home & I would create the dream life I always imagined. Over the years of returning home to visit family & friends, I would always rent a beach house to add to the joy of my vacation and time back home. I was born & spent my childhood in the country side of El Salvador; so being a person that loves the beach & ocean, I would explore the beach towns of El Salvador when I returned. From all the other great beaches & coastal towns of El Salvador, I fell in love with the wonderful town of La Liberated / El Sunzal. From the 1st time there, I knew this is where I would buy my vacation & future retirement home. La Liberated has so much to offer, from great beaches, restaurants, cool bars, the fresh caught fish market, & much more. Now I stayed in many homes during my vacations, & saw even more when I was on my quest to buy; then I came across Vill Del Olas and fell in love. It was everything I had dreamed, it was in a private & gated community, an ocean front lot & possessed all the beauty, uniqueness great architecture & luxuries I had come accustom to from my time in the United States. Now my initial intention was to just find the perfect home for my self & family to enjoy; however the seller all ready established a great reputation & made a wonderful place for people to come & enjoy on their vacation. This sounded like a great opportunity to to generate income while I was not enjoying the Villa & it just sat vacant. I must admit it also gave me a sense of pride to be able to have people from all over the world come & see how beautiful my little country of El Salvador is, how warm & inviting my people are, the delicious food & a chance to spend there vacation in what I would describe as a dream home.

The architecture is beautiful, practical, & perfectly designed for comfort, luxury & to enjoy the sights & sounds of the ocean.

Beautiful property right on the beach. Amazing views
Very nice property, lots of stairs so I wouldn't recommend it for anyone who is not prepared for climbing to beach or pool. Beach is mostly rocks in winter (May-October) should be nice sand other times.
Just what we needed
Beautiful property. Looking forward to booking next time!
Great place to stay right on the ocean
Great experience staying here. Grabbed some groceries in La Libertad about 15 minutes down the road and had a great time grilling, swimming and watching the evening storms (stayed during the rainy season).
Tyler, the property manager, was great to work with. He never seemed bothered by all my questions.....most of which I found if I looked around more I could have answered for myself.
Beautiful Location and very comfortable.
Home location is gorgeous. House can use some updating but otherwise very comfortable. Staff is very attentive. Housekeeper is inexpensive to hire for home cooked meals and laundry. Home is not really within walking distance of anything except the beach. The closest restaurant is a 15-20 minute hike. Lucky for me we had transportation. I would rent this home again.
Beautiful, safe, relaxing and fun
We spent a week at this beautiful property and it was like a dream. We rented the villa and the casita for a family reunion and we were anxious for everything to go well because we had such a short time to spend with people we had not seen in many years. Everything was great. The property was clean and very well cared for by a gardener, a pool cleaner and a housekeeper. The property manager and the housekeeper were helpful and accessible. The villa is as beautiful and unique as it looks in the photos, full of sea breeze and the sound of waves. The ocean views are stunning. The younger members of our group loved taking surfing lessons with some capable, friendly instructors who were interesting and knowledgeable about the country. There is a lot of room to play and explore at low tide on the beach right below the house, but the stairs down would be hard for anyone with mobility issues. There is a more accessible path to the beach a short walk or drive down the road in front of the villa. We did our own cooking, both in the large indoor kitchen and on the outdoor grill, including some great local seafood purchased nearby, but you can also hire people to cook if you prefer. I understand that Blanca makes great pupusas and will even teach you how to make them. We spent hours swimming in the warm ocean. You have to like playing in waves to swim there on most days! We went for walks inside the gated resort, to the bigger beach, tide pools, another, larger swimming pool and a nice restaurant. We also visited El Tunco, a local surfing spot a few minutes away by car with art vendors, bars, restaurants and yoga classes. Next time we visit we will venture farther and explore the country more, but we didn't really want to leave such a beautiful place and spent most of the time relaxing in and around the property and catching up with family. There were so many spots to lie in a hammock and read (while drinking out of a coconut from a tree on the property), lounge, listen to the sound of the waves, swim in the pool and the ocean. There is a lot of room for a big group to eat, hang out and dance in the villa, and some of us enjoyed yoga under the high thatched roof of the upstairs patio, looking out onto the ocean. We are looking forward to returning as soon as we can.
