If you are looking for an upscale, surf focused Vacation Rental in the El Tunco area of El Salvador, One Wave Surf House is truly the place for you.
Getting There: The house is about a 5-6 hour flight from LAX or SFO, followed by a short 30-45 minute drive from San Salvador International Airport. One Wave offers reasonably priced airport transfers courteously coordinated by the amazing house hosts, Sean and Sabrina.
Layout: The house has an open layout and jungle landscaped yard designed to meet the needs of any travelers or groups of up to 13 seeking fun and consistent waves in an amazing location with great service. An outdoor shower and pool make for a perfect post surf-dip and the open air second floor has a yoga deck for stretching out sore muscles. One Wave also offers a grocery shopping service, so when you show up the fridge and pantry can be fully stocked with tasty food.
Surf: The house is about a 5 minute walk from the consistent peeling righthand waves at El Sunzal and just a short drive or 15 minute walk to the Trestles-like left handers of La Bocana. It's easy to get used to surfing all day into sunset and coming in with exhausted noodle arms only to be greeted by the lively beach nightlife that El Tunco has to offer. For adventuring further out, One Wave Surf House offers reasonable SUV and Scooter (with surf racks) rentals, so you can explore the many other surf spots in the area. If you prefer not to fly with surfboards One Wave has a garage filled with a plethora of surfcrafts for rent that will suit any surfer’s needs.
Surroundings: El Tunco has good restaurants and bars with live music almost every night.
Hosts: Sean and Sabrina, are extremely friendly and responsive to any questions or concerns you may have during your stay. They live in the detached apartment in front of the property, and they are just a WhatsApp text away at all times. The true landlord though, is the ex-local stray house dog, Charlie Boy, who will always greet you with love and excitement after returning from every surf session. (But, if you aren’t a dog person, Sabrina and Sean will gladly keep Charlie to themselves in their apartment.)
