About Luisa Sichero
I am an Uruguayan married to an American Physician that fell in love with Punta Ballena the first time he visited my family in Uruguay. We live in New York City. We bought this apartment and gut renovated it planning to retire there some day.
Luisa Sichero purchased this Apartment in 2013
Why Luisa Sichero chose Punta Ballena
Because it is conveniently located one hour from Montevideo and 15 minutes from the local airport. It has the best sea views of all Uruguay. It is a place where you can rest and enjoy practicing sports like golf, tennis, sailing, water skiing, windsurf, etc
What makes this Apartment unique
Being 15 minutes from the center of Punta del Este, you can enjoy night life at the casinos, shows, cinemas, etc or have a more quiet and relaxed evenings in the local entertainments like cafe concerts or restaurants in the area like 'Las Cumbres', 'Casapueblo', 'Club del Lago', 'Medio y media' or 'Club de los Balleneros'.
Canceled bookings will not receive a refund
This is our second year of spending 2 weeks in March at this fabulous condo. Why look anywhere else when this condo is so beautiful, so clean, and so comfortable. The sunsets are dazzling. Again we golfed, soaked up the sun, enjoyed a day trip to Colonia, and ate & drank at all the delicious restaurants del Este has to offer. The condo is exactly as presented. This year, we found new lounge chairs that we loved on our patio.
And we would love to have you again in 2017!
Special place in Punta
First, the property is located in a oasis in Punta. The sunset and the surrounding are amazing! The apartment was exactly as described in the pictures Everything is new, including appliances in the kitchen. Everything is well maintained. The housekeeper and all the staff were very helpfull and efficientt. We had a problem with the hot water and Mario, the doorman ,took care immediately. The owner is very friendly,nice and responsive.The property was clean and tastefully furnished. I Would love to come back ASAP and would definitively recommend it.
Enjoy the beautiful sunsets from this modern condo
We have rented several properties from vrbo and this has been the best. It is exactly as presented, is exactly as the photos, and it is CLEAN! All new appliances. The managers, in spite of speaking no English and we no Spanish, were so anxious to please. They responded quickly and helped us in every way. The neighbors were very friendly and offered us good advice about the area. The sunsets were gorgeous. The pool was clean & comfortable. We ate fish at all the local restaurants, too many options to list. We went on a charter to see the 200,000 seal sanctuary that was just incredible. There's shopping, casino and beautiful beaches. What more could anyone ask for. Please consider Punta del Este and stay at this beautiful condo and you won't regret it.
Lovely place absolutely beatiful remodel
We stayed for two weeks and the place is as represented ,completely remodeled and very nice ,the Views of the ocean are just stunning!! Owners are extremely helpful and knowledgeable about the area and helped make our stay one of the best ever ! We WILL stay here again on our next trip .
Didn't want to leave!
We spent a week here in early December 2014, and wanted to tell the owners we were not going to leave, but they could come visit if they liked. This place is really wonderful. The building has a garage on the second floor down from the street entrance (the building is built down the slope to the water), and from the garage you walk directly into the hallway, then into the apartment. The apartment is in excellent condition, all new fixtures, electric awnings and shades, two full and one half baths, fast wifi, and very clean. From the first floor is a lawn leading to the water; and a beautiful sand beach is less than five minutes drive away - with a great restaurant where you can have lunch on the terrace (media y media). The apartment is on a quiet residential peninsula, Punta de Ballena, about ten minutes drive from the restaurants and stores in Punta del Este. But you will have a hard time pulling yourself away from the balcony overlooking the water. The owner is very warm, friendly and responsive and Mario, the on-site super, was great. Friendly neighbors helped us out with a rental car breakdown despite the language barrier. Everything they say about the sunset views is true! The building is one building over from the famous Casapueblo, which has a gallery, cafeteria, and restaurant. We watched hang gliders sailing over Casapueblo from the balcony, something we will not soon forget. Highly recommended!
We are delighted that our guests had such a great time and find our apartment as magic as we do.
Paradise on earth.
Paradise on earth. This apt is a jewel in the most amazing resort in South America, Punta del Este. The view is captivating and the sunsets are a sight in itself. The apartment was in perfect condition and the friendly service of Uruguayan completed a memorable vacation. Super recommended !!!
Punta Ballena is where Punta del Este starts. It is the best oceanic view of Uruguay where you can enjoy unbelievable sunsets. Punta means 'Point' and Ballena means 'whale', because it is a point that looks like a whale back. Conveniently situated, one hour from Carrasco Airport and 10 m from the local airport, this scenic area has excellent hotels like 'La Cumbre' or famous Casapueblo. Restaurants in those hotels and in Cub of Balleneros are a delight. Golf, tennis and water skiing at Club del Lago is another attraction on Laguna del Sauce that offers a more rural scenery.
