House Hunting in El Salvador: A Compound on the Coast for $249,000

This low-slung villa compound is tucked into a lushly landscaped tropical garden, steps from a private beach and beach club on the Pacific Coast of El Salvador.

The property, on a third of an acre in the Bahia Dorada beach community, has two residences — one with two bedrooms and one bathroom, and the other with the main bedroom suite.

The home, being sold furnished, is arranged in a traditional Salvadoran ranch layout, with the living areas split between indoor and outdoor spaces, said the seller, Anna Rooney. Whimsical touches include brightly colored walls and handcrafted textiles. The dining room, living room and kitchen are outdoors, while the bedrooms and several sitting areas are indoors. The property also has quarters for a housekeeper.

“The green areas are indescribable,” said Jose Cortez, an agent with Oceanside El Salvador, which has the listing. “It feels like you’re in a forest.”
