A large covered pool pavilion becomes an outdoor extension of the home for lounging or entertaining, with a dining area at one end, lounging at the other, equipped with sound system, all overlooking the secluded, private pool and lush manicured lawn. A fully covered outdoor dining patio off the side entrance has a “parilla” the Uruguayan grille BBQ built in, an updated full kitchen with service quarters and separate laundry.

Punta del Este, Uruguay, South America (1 1/2 hours from Montevideo, 20 minutes from Punta del Este,) View Map
La Barra is a small beach town community 15 minutes away from the heart of Punta del Este, 45 minutes from the local airport, one hour and a half from Montevideo. Known for its eclectic shops, restaurants, bars and discos, it is the art center of the area. Fashionable Jose Ignacio is a further half hour down the coast. For us, La Barra is in the best position between the big town life in Punta and the laid back beach lifestyle along the coast.

La Mantra Hotel just a few blocks away, offers use of spa, and health club, casino, movie theater, restaurants and pool.
