About the property

Beautiful 2 bedroom house close to the beach

Hi Everybody!

I rent a beautiful brand new house in José Ignacio, the most hippie chic place to be in South America!

Very practical, modern and full of light. Ideal to rest and find peace!

The house is located in Santa Mónica, 25 km away from Punta del Este (South America's top resort town on the Atlantic Coast), 5km away from José Ignacio’s lighthouse.

It is surrounded by the charming Lagoon of José Ignacio, and what’s best, it's only 3 blocks to get to the beach.

The house is 55 m2 plus it has a roof deck of 25m2 with barbecue/parrilla and a garden of 450 m2.

It can host up to 5 people. It has 2 bedrooms, one with double bed and another with a trundle bed. One bathroom and living room with air conditioning and sofa bed.

The american kitchen with a bar has everything you need for cooking and eating for six people. The oven is electric and the fridge has freezer. You also have a microwave, washing machine, and a outdoor shower. The barbecue (parrilla) is quiet big and it is conveniently connected with the kitchen.

For your safety there is an alarm system with response. The property is fenced and there is place enough to park up to 3 cars.

Free Unlimited WiFi included.

If you have any doubts I will be pleased to answer you!

About Santiago Casal

Hi there! My name is Santiago, I'm a Civil Engineer who lives in Montevideo, capital of the first FIFA World Cup host and Champions, Uruguay!

I love to travel, meeting new people, cultures and places!

I can't live without music and at least some days of beach along the year!

Santiago Casal purchased this house in 2012

Why Santiago Casal chose Maldonado

Because it is located in an unique place in the world, famous worldwide for its long, solitary beaches and wonderful restaurants.

The village is located on a natural peninsula that juts out into the ocean with two sweeping beaches either side. Taking a walk down Mansa Beach in the early evening you are rewarded with some spectacular sunsets.

During the summer months (December to March) people come from far afield to throw parties, enjoy carnival and see concerts in the lighthouse.

This hidden gem of a village is most famous for its lighthouse, which shows just how cut off from the outer world you are here and as drawn the slogan that has made these beaches very popular: “Only the wind runs here”.

What makes this house unique

The best of staying here is that it's close enough to join the activity in Punta del Este, La Barra or José Ignacio, but far enough away to enjoy solitude.

The house very practical and comfortable. You can rent a car and use it as a base for exploring the area: Uruguay's main attraction is its beaches, so most visitors come in summer. It possesses 450 km of coasts along the Rio de la Plata and 220 km on the Atlantic Ocean. This gives rise to a series of beaches of high tourist interest for the beauty they enclose.

There are wonderful restaurants and beaches nearby as well as markets for finding items for firing up the parilla at the house.

If you feel a bit more active you can enjoy good surfing in the area and even kite-surfing at Laguna Garzon. It is also an attractive place to visit during the winter months between July and late October as the weather stays mild. Then you share this little paradise with far fewer people and Franca Whales too, resting on their way to Peninsula Valdes in Argentina.

Amazing place with a beautiful and comfortable house.

We spent two nights here and it was a pity we could not stay longer.

Close to peaceful and wonderful beaches and José Ignacio .
