About the property

The 'palapa' roof functions as a protective cover while at the same time creating a distinctive & artful flair for this tropical hideaway.

This unique, recently built 3,000 square foot villa, comes with fully equipped kitchen, dining table for 12, 3 full bathrooms, & a terrace that opens to palm trees where you can take 'siestas' on a comfortable hammock. It is tastefully decorated with your comfort in mind.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We really enjoyed the two nights at your house. Your house was very clean and beautiful! Miguel and Yanira are wonderful and very helpful people.

I think next time probably we are going to stay a little bit longer. Two nights was not enough for such peaceful and beautiful place! Now I understand its name Villa Serena!

Thank you so very much!

Great relaxing vacation.

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at this house with my family with 3 children betweeen 5-8 and 6 adults. I contracted a driver who picked us up from the airport and took us to the house. The house Is spacious and the pictures are representative of the house. The house has 6 rooms but one of them was locked up so when renting the house we had 5 rooms available. I wish they had made the 6th bedroom available as one of the rooms downstairs is not up to the standards of the rest to the house. You will be right by the beach. We had the beach to ourselves most of the time. The beach here was great although they had some rough tides on the days we were there. However, my kids had a great time catching and releasing crabs, bonfires by the beach and swimming in the pool. The service provided by the staff at the house was great. I just hired the cook as some of kids are picky eaters and had her cook some Salvadoran dishes for the rest. I also liked that this house as it is close to the city so if you want to go shopping you can get to multi plaza or la gran via in about 40 min.

Another amazing vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was our second trip to this property. We again had a fantastic time. The house and staff our second to none. We went with the all-inclusive and the food and service was superb. The beach and property are perfect. If you are a beach person this is the place for you. We traveled with 4 adults and 4 children ages 5-8 and this was the perfect location. I would strongly recommend this property to families and maybe an adult get-away.

January 19th -22nd 2016 Vacation

  • 4 of 5

I recently stayed at the Villa Serena. Despite few misunderstandings in regards to some WI-FI issues the house offers many commodities I was looking for. I have been an annual visitor to the country, to this date I wasn't completely happy with previous homes visited in the past few years. I was impress by the service offered to my family and I by Carolina, Vicente, Flor for constant attention to our needs. I highly recommend this property if you're looking for a place to relax and unwind. Not much activity at night, except the ocean and the beautiful stars at night, we lucked out with a beautiful full moon. We left with a relaxed happy feeling. Thank you to Margoth for calling at the end of our staying to check with me , if our visit was satisfactory. It exeeded my expectations

Thank you

Probably our best trip ever down south

  • 5 of 5

We said at Carolina's beach house from dec26- jan2, 2016. There were four adults and four kids ages 5-7.


Amazing! Such a beautiful and well maintained house. There were four large air conditioned bedrooms and a 5th smaller bedroom which we didn't need. The beds were so comfy. There is a large open air living room area which was great to relax in during the evening .


Amazing!! Perfect size and beautifully designed.


Amazing!! One of the best beaches we have ever been too. We rarely even saw other people on the beach. The waves were perfect for board surfing and the kids had a great time.


Amazing. We went with the all inclusive and would strongly recommend it. The staff were great and they cooked some amazing meals.


This was our first trip to El Salvador but not our last. We always felt safe and secure and loved the fact that there were not a lot of other tourist. We will diffently be returning . Thanks Carolina for a perfect family vacation.
