My husband and I truly found paradise at the Beach Bella Vista. Our only regret is that we didn't stay longer... as in forever ;) We stayed in the main house. We are already making plans to return, and this next time we will bring our family. It was incredibly relaxing. There isn't anything quite like a gentle ocean breeze and the sound of waves to lull you to sleep at night, or as you rock gently in one of the hammocks. Seriously, it is pure bliss.
We found friends for life in meeting Shawn and D'Arcy. They are two of the nicest people you could hope to meet. They are attentive, prompt, and truly dedicated to making sure that their guests have a wonderful experience. We thoroughly enjoyed the Burke's recommendations for restaurants, and activities (including surf lessons!)
The home itself is beautiful. It is modern, comfortable, spacious, nicely appointed, and impeccably clean. The pool and gardens are also very beautiful and well maintained.
The views are unbeatable, and the ocean is warm and welcoming. The waves are perfect for boogy-boarding or body-surfing. It would also be an ideal place to skim-board (at least during the drier season when the sand is plentilful).
We honestly can't recommend this home highly enough. If you are interested in having the most incredible vacation and El Salvadorian experience possible, you need to stay here. We honestly cannot wait to go back!!

My husband and I (age 40ish) stayed 8 nights at this romantic casita. It is spectacular in every way and really does exceed every expectation.
The house comes complete with all basic cooking utensils and basic kitchenware. I would recommend bringing paper products such as paper towels, plastic wrap, and perhaps refrigerator containers to store left over food (fresh cut up fruit) in the fridge.
The house offers 2 bathrooms, one in the casita, one outside for pool access. Bring hand soap for each bathroom. The daily maid service and pool cleaning every other day is a true luxury.
There are a few beach front restaurants within walking distance. Roxanna the property manager is very helpful in recommending all sorts of sights to see as well as dining options. She speaks excellent English.
You will not be disappointed staying at this property. DÁrcy the property owner is very quick to answer any booking inquiries and is very professional arranging money transfers for payment and refund of damage deposit.

The Villa is modern, spacious, fully equipped and over looking the ocean. The Villa has a stylish design and it centres around the enclosed private garden with private pool & jacuzzi. Both the lounge and the 2nd kitchen opens up to the porch over looking the Ocean/Pool. An ideal place to relax with a chilled glass of wine in comfortable loungers and beautiful settings.
The villa can comfortable hold 10 people. The views are amazing and the atmosphere is relaxing.

Who would have thought El Salvador would be the best vacation ever? The house was lovely. It has an awesome view of the beach, a beautiful pool, comfortable beds, and is immaculately clean. Shawn and D'Arcy were fabulous hosts telling and showing us where to go and what to do. The private beach is safe, clean and very few people. It really is private! We loved it and will go back.

I stayed here in November with my wife & 10 other family members, & we all had a magnificent time. There was plenty of space and the property is designed where you to get to enjoy each other & even some private time to relax & read & take in the beautiful views as you sit steps above the ocean drinking a fresh cut coconut. The views are amazing, the staff is friendly & there to serve as you desire while giving you your privacy. We had a wonderful time, & this private home in a secured community made for a perfecto vacation..

My husband and I needed to get away to celebrate our 33rd anniversary and this was a wonderful place to go! The casita was lovely and the view was amazing! We were the only ones at the place, so we had the pool to ourselves and just enjoyed the slow pace of the weekend. We cooked breakfast both mornings in the little kitchen, and then ate lunch and dinner out. The bed was so comfortable and the shower was awesome! Lots of water pressure, which was great. We relaxed in the pool and on the hammocks and in the chairs all weekend. Such a lovely way to spend a weekend. No TV or Internet access, which was great for us. However, we were able to get Internet access at Cafe Sunzal, about 10 minutes up the road, where we went for lunch. Dinner at Beto's was delicious and the atmosphere was so cool. Friday night they had a guy playing the saxophone for over an hour. It was very romantic. We currently live in El Salvador, so this was a quick trip for us. We will most likely rent this place again before we move back to the us! You do need to be in good shape to visit this place because it is built into a hillside, so there are lots of stairs and slopes, but we managed just fine. :D

We really loved our week at the cool and casual casita located right
on the shore of atami beach which is one of the most beautiful
beaches of El Salvador. The casita felts like a hidden treasure. It
is very cozy and secluded, perfect for lone wanderers and lovers
alike. What really blew our mind was star gazing on the big balcony
right on the ocean.
The sea wind that blows inside the casita through the beautifully
built decorative wall makes it feel fresh day and night. Everything is well maintained and brand new. The shower flows with hard pressure and was so nice to enjoy before a relaxing night in the perfect crispy sheets of the queen bed. The air con ensured great sleep. All our needs were attended to by Sean and D'Arcy, the perfect facial, yoga classes on the beach deck, a massage right on the beach to name a few.
The view is unbelievable especially during sunset. The property with
it's gardening is very inspirational and atami beach is a relaxed
beach that feels private. It is super close to the best surf spots
and for example the El Tunco beach that is great for dinner or drinks in the evening and surfing during the day. Even the locals love to
hang out in these areas so you know they are solid.
We could have easily spent our whole week at the casita but it was
nice to get a taste of the city since it's so close. It was
great to go shopping and enjoy some time at the skillfully curated
modern art museum Martes in San Salvador. On the way back it was cool to go buy fresh seafood and ready made chevice from the huge pier of
La Libertad. Daydreaming in the hammock, dipping in the pool and
grilling on the terrace made this place the best place to chill on the Salvadoran beach side.

The tan is fading, but the memories of clear blue skies, hot days & nights spent relaxing on the beautiful Pacific coast of El Salvador will remain forever.

Shawn & D'Arcy the owners, live just a few doors down the coast & are very happy to take you on several different tours offered, cook you delicious breakfasts & dinners or provide a wonderful facial & relaxing massage in their spa, all at a reasonable cost. The house is fully equipped with modern appliances & AC in the bedrooms. Be prepared to provide your own toilet paper, paper towels, garbage bags, dish soap, hand soap, drinking water. The Burke's will be happy to take you in to la Libertad for these essentials for a small cost. If you are looking to get away from the ratrace & relax this is the spot for you. The Burke's picked us up & delivered us back to the airport at all the right times - it was wonderful!
Your group was such a joy to share theJewel of Centro America with. We enjoyed having all of you and taking you to the Mountains, volcanoes, and other destination spots.
