About Ignacio Bussy

After living and travelling throughout the world, my wife and I decided to build our home in this place. I grew up in Buenos Aires and was always familiar with the beauty of the region and when I introduced my new Yorker wife to the area it didn’t take us long to realize that it was a good place to call home.

We have been living here with our three young daughters for the past five years and are very pleased with our decision. I do have to travel very frequently to New York and Indonesia to take care of our women’s accessories wholesale business. However, I must say that the commute to NY is a very pleasant overnight flight with hardly any time difference.

We enjoy surfing, kite surfing, horseback riding, deserted beaches and peace all of which are very easily found around here.

Ignacio Bussy purchased this house in 2004

Why Ignacio Bussy chose Arenas de José Ignacio

The reasons are explained above, we actually live in the property for the most part.

What makes this house unique

Spectacular views from every room and outside. No need to get in the car to go anywhere, can hang out by the pool overlooking the ocean and light house, can walk around the property, can walk to the little shelter on the beach. All of what creates a complete desconnection but yet if looking for fancy restaurants, social events, see and be seen; it doesn't take more than a 15min walk down the beach or a two minute car ride.

Wonderful holiday!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in the main house for 11 days in February 2015. We have always dreamed of staying in a house on the beach and this fit the bill perfectly. We had a wonderful, relaxing holiday and wish we could have stayed longer! The house is extremely comfortable with spectacular views. It is well furnished and had everything we needed for the vacation. The beach, a short walk away, is absolutely gorgeous. You can walk miles in one direction and see very few people or you can walk in the other direction to La Huela (the best restaurant in the village of Jose Ignacio-an approximately 20 minute walk). We quickly fell into a routine of reading, walking and eating at the many delicious restaurants in the area. Ignacio was great to work with. He was very responsive and provided us with all of the information we needed to ensure a great holiday.

Our only frustration was the internet service, which worked inconsistently. I suspect that this could have been fixed, but Ignacio was in Indonesia when we were there and thus unavailable to assist us. I am sure had we bothered him about it, he would have arranged to have someone come and fix it. We highly recommend the house and would love to return ourselves

Amazing House in a very special Place!

  • 5 of 5

My Wife and I stayed here with our kids and had the most incredible vacation! Jose Ignacio is the perfect combination of cultured life and small town charm. The beaches are spectacular, restaurants world class and the ocean and lagoon offer something for everyone to enjoy (especially Kitesurfers!!!). Ignacio is a true local, and was very generous in sharing his knowledge of the area making for a wonderful stay. The house was that of a family that lives there. Warm, inviting and personal. It is just a short walk to the beach and very close to the lagoon as well. Close to town, yet private and quiet. This house is a wonderful choice to experience the unique beauty of Uruguay and Jose Ignacio!
