One can walk or ride bicycles (provided) through tree lined, meandering roads enjoying the beautiful architecture of some of the finest homes in Punta del Este. Just five blocks away, you can find the pristine South Atlantic ocean, Playa Brava, to walk for miles, swim, surf or sunbathe. Horses are available for rent nearby to ride along the beach and elsewhere. A short 5 minute drive will take you to several gourmet restaurants and coffee shops as well as to Punta del Este town center where you’ll find the marina with it’s sea lions, fish markets, wonderful dining, shopping, casinos and famed night clubs.
The guest house is spacious, light filled and has a charming ambiance, along with the convenience of WiFi throughout. It is perfect for a couple, but the sofa could accommodate a third person.

The bedroom has a flat screen TV ( with direct-TV) that one can watch from the comfort of the king sized bed, fitted with luxury linens. Enjoy the “parilla” the Uruguyan wood fired grill BBQ. The kitchen is fully equipped, with cookware, dish ware, glassware, cutlery, coffee maker, blender and toaster. There is one full bath complete with bidet and shower.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

About the owner: We feel fortunate to be able to live where we choose and happy to have chosen Uruguay as our home. For the past 6 years we have been renovating an historic property in a lovely, private and quiet neighborhood in Punta del Este. It has been a labor of love and quite the adventure.

Why the Owner Chose Punta del Este, Uruguay:
We were enchanted with the neighborhood of beautiful homes with very large well cared for gardens. Bougainvillia, roses, fruit trees and pines and many birds singing abound. Being able to restore a 100 year old property with stone floors, french tile roof, thick brick walls and well established garden has been a dream come true.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
We love being able to live in such a neighborhood and yet minutes away from everything we would want or need. Hearing the sound of horses going by, walking to a most beautiful beach, breathing the clean fresh air and great weather suits us perfectly.
