About Natalie

We grew up in Argentina and have been vacationing in Punta del Este since we were kids. We have been living in the USA for over 25 years. We have 3 children that adore Punta and we built our home as a place to come and enjoy family reunions, the company of friends, excellent food and one of most beautiful beaches in the world.

Unfortunately, since we can't get to use our home as much as we'd like, we decided to give others the opportunity to get to know a bit of Uruguay and see if you fall in love with it as much as we have.

Natalie purchased this house in 2011

Why Natalie chose Maldonado

We love Punta. It is a place where we have been building memories for decades and now our children are buildiing their own.

The people of Uruguay are the kindest, friendliest people you can ever imagine. They are always willing to help you and make you feel at home.

We had always dreamt of having a home on the ocean and finally we made our dream come true!

If you are looking for a place to relax, enjoy walks on the beach, sunsets from your deck and a bit of a distance from the hussle and bustle of Punta del Este's downtown area, then this is the place for you!

What makes this house unique

The house is absolutely spotless and everything from the bed linens to the spoons is brand new.

The house completely exceeded our expectations. From everywhere in the home you have an open view of the ocean, you can walk to the beach and come back home if you forgot your book or your hat. It is ideal for families with children, since the beach is right there, you don't have to get them in the car to go to the beach, you also have the swiming pool when it is windy or when you come back from the beach to rinse the salt from your skin (also an outdoor shower).

The outdoor spaces is where you spend most of the time, just relaxing, reading, listening to music, watching the waves...

Beautiful home with all the comforts!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this beautiful home for 2 weeks. We woke up thankful for the views, proximity to the sand/sea, & its comforts. We were 8 people (8 to 84 years old); everyone found the house a delight.

The house is perfectly located. There are so many views of the water from the home and the sunsets are superb. It is literally on the sand but the dune hides most of it from the beach so there is privacy. To get to the beach, you walk over the dune and you are on the beach. The beach is sparsely populated; you almost have it to yourself.

The beach in front of the house is a nudist beach. We wore our bathing suits; there were no issues with our presence or with the kids. If you walk 5 minutes to the left (on the beach), you are past the nudist portion. If you walk five more minutes in the same direction, you are at Tio Tom which is a kid friendly, more populated beach. Tio Tom has a great surf school where you can walk up for lessons -they are superb!

There is a local market around the corner (about 1/3 mile away) with a great staff (Miguel, the owner, is wonderful!). There are restaurants and a larger grocery store on the main highway. You will need a car to get everywhere but the local market. We used Uber and they did not have issues finding the house. Otherwise, the house is isolated and peaceful.

The house is contemporary and modern. It is beautifully decorated. It is well stocked (kitchen, beach equipment, board games/puzzles, blankets). It is also comfortable: clothes dryer, dishwasher, air conditioning, ceiling fans, hot water that doesn’t run out, and great water pressure in the showers. All things one might not find when traveling. The wifi is what you would expect in an isolated area (if you plan to do anything important using wifi, either do it early in the am when there is less traffic or visit an internet café).

The upstairs has a master bedroom-king (with bathroom -shower/bathtub), kitchen, dining/living room, ½ bath, outdoor living room, outdoor dining (adjacent to grill and pool). We spent most of the time in the outdoor spaces enjoying the views and ocean breeze. The downstairs has a bedroom –(king or 2 twins) with adjoining bath (shower), another bedroom -twin bed-with adjoining bath (shower), third bedroom with 2 twins, fourth bedroom with two bunk beds, a full bathroom (shower), and a large laundry room.

Overall, the house is a fantastic deal in a great location. We hope to not only return to Uruguay but to this house again!

This house set the stage for wonderful memories with friends and family. Beautifully decorated in a style that blends with the stunning natural backdrop. Very comfortable and private with a great use of natural light. We just want to keep coming back! Thanks Natalie for being so easy to work with.

Breathtaking Ocean Front Home

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying here! The owner is very easy to work with and everything runs very smoothly. The house is over the moon beautiful - lots of absolutely breathtaking ocean views, a cinematic feeling as you walk through the living room with its expansive verandah and beautiful open ocean views. My whole family came so we were 4 adults and 4 teens and we fit more than comfortably - there are 3 bedrooms plus one bunk room with bunks for 4 teens or kids. The master bedroom with its beautiful private bath have direct ocean views just like the living and dining room - a 10 on my scale! The master suite is located on the main floor (which is really the second floor). The other 3 bedrooms are located on the lower, ground floor. The other rooms are simpler and while still facing the ocean, are low and so have limited view. The master bedroom has a split AC, the other bedrooms have fans only. The barbecue and pool area are great for entertaining - huge dining table - maybe seats 10 (not 100% sure). But the highlight of the house is walking out the back door and onto the beach! The home sits directly on Chihuahua beach. There is a lovely sand dune that keeps the home private from bathers or other onlookers so you are really secluded and at ease as you sit on the balcony - you see no one. Important to know that this beach is a nudist beach. We went in regular swim wear and that is fine and no one is bothered with what anyone is or isn't wearing, but it is important to know. If when you reach the beach you turn left and walk 5 minutes you are no longer on the nudist beach. Grocery is a very short drive away. This home is a true beach retreat, even more lovely then the photos show. We would definitely stay here again if the opportunity arose.

A family break to remember in Uruguay

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 7 (5 college students & 3 parents) had a a fabulous time at this exqusite beach side home. The layout of the house allows for this many people to find there space to relax and not feel on top of each other. The shaded back deck adjacent to the pool was a terrific refuge from the hot sun at mid day. We utilized the outside grill and the modern kitchen yet there are several terrific restaurants and a supermarket just a 5 minutes drive away.

Amazing House in an Amazing Place

  • 5 of 5

My partner and I absolutely loved our stay at this house in Punta Del Este. We had never been to South America and did not know what to expect and we were blown away by the house, the beach, and all that Punta has to offer. First, the house is incredible: clean, open, airy, and well appointed. We spent our days walking along the dunes in front of the house, visiting Explora bar just a few minutes walk down the beach, and BBQing by the pool at night. If you like to stargaze, the Southern Cross rises in front of the house and the constellations are crystal clear uninterrupted by light pollution. I think we counted four shooting stars in one night while sitting outside on the deck. Just a few minutes drive from a grocery store, convenient store, and a fabulous restaurant Oliva Y Sal, the house and its neighborhood has everything you need. We are already planning our return trip.

Mi familia y la de mi hermana pasamos una semana en esta casa, definitivamente no era lo que esperaba. Pense que iba a ser lejos, y que los chicos se iban a aburrir. Que equivocada estaba! Hace rato que no lo pasamos tan bien!! Los chicos tenian toda la playa para ellos, los grandes disfrutamos de esta casa increible con una vista al mar desde todos los ambientes para morirse. Lo suficientemente lejos para estar tranquilos y lo suficientemente cerca para ir al ruido de la Punta cuando teniamos ganas. Definitivamente, volveremos a ir!!!

Our home is located right on the beach, a 2 minute walk to one of the most beautiful beaches in the world and AMAZING sunsets.

It is the perfect place to relax, enjoy swiming, walking on the beach, spending time with family and friends.

The center of Punta del Este with all its restaurants, casinos, discos, shopping, etc is a mere 15-20 minute drive away.

At our home, you enjoy the sound of birds, the waves, the wind. Completely peaceful!

Some local attractions and must see/do are:

1. Casapueblo Museum and Restaurant, built by a local artist with Picasso and Gaudi influences. Breathtaking views of the entire bay.

2. La Pataia, a small dairy farm with a petting zoo, horse back riding and the most amazing 'panqueques de dulce de leche'. Perfect outing for kids (and adults) on a cloudy/rainy day

3. Potezuelo horse riding, 5 minutes away from home. Horseback riding on the beach.

4. Hotel Las Cumbres Art and Spa, a boutique hotel on the hills, overlooking both the lake and the ocean. Beautifully decorated, a perfect place to have afternoon tea with scones and home-made jams.
