About the property

Villa, 3 Bedrooms + Sleeping Porch, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-7) Close to the Beach

Luxury House with Pool - Just blocks from the Beach in La Barra. Best Choice in Punta Del Este! Excellent internet and Service --- LOWER RATES FOR 2018-2019

Only 2-4 blocks from Restaurants / Clubs / Cafes / Bars/ Beach

Sleeps 6 (7) (3 Bedrooms)

It is spacious with over 1,883 sq. feet (175 sq. meters). The house gets plenty of sunlight throughout the day in all of the rooms. The house was recently built in 2006 and although it is new, the owner spared no expense to completely renovate the house including the flooring, bathrooms, kitchen, windows, lighting and adding a full-size pool in the backyard along with a large wood deck to lounge around and sun tan. The pool area is amazing to relax and tan. There are 6 luxurious full size fully recline able lounge chairs to sun tan. There is a full size outdoor sofa and table. Most of the rental properties in Punta del Este have very cheap and uncomfortable furniture. This house is the exception! All the furniture is very modern, imported and superior quality. The mattresses are Four Season Presidential suite mattresses. The house has been tastefully decorated and everything in the house is new.

The house has 3 bedrooms and two full bathrooms. There is enough room in the driveway for 3 vehicles including an RV. The house has a backyard that gets sun most of the afternoon. A pool has been added as well as a BBQ pit to grill your favorite food. There is also a new washing machine to wash your towels and clothes.

Both bathrooms have been renovated including marble throughout both bathrooms along with new fixtures throughout.

The house also has Cable TV so you have many channels to choose from as well as high-speed Internet access. The master bedroom and the other bigger bedroom both have TV's and DVD players

Montoya Beach is one of Punta’s most spectacular beaches and is perfect for swimming, bodysurfing, surfing, kite boarding, windsurfing, fishing and more. Montoya continues for several kilometers and becomes Manantiales Beach and the famous Bikini Beach. This beautiful stretch of coastline with big dunes and occasional rocky outcropping is home to some of Uruguay's better surf breaks.

The house is situated 1 min from the only Gas Station (ANCAP) in la Barra and 1 min from the only Police Station in town;

About Hendrik (owner) & Mauricio (local manager)

I live in Europe and enjoy real estate investment properties around the world. I used to go to this house every summer but now I'm a bit too busy with work and MBA studies...Great house and lots of very satisfied people that have rented it.

Hendrik (owner) & Mauricio (local manager) purchased this villa in 2007

Why Hendrik (owner) & Mauricio (local manager) chose La Barra

Punta is the place to be in South America if you enjoy beaches, delicious food, interesting people and security.

Punta del Este's summer scene is often compared to St. Tropez or Cannes in France and the Hamptons in the US.

Basically, there are 3 prime locations: the Peninsula, La Barra and Jose Ignacio.

La Barra offers many advantages such as its walkability, seaside village charm, coastal vistas and surf and accessibility to resources for 'true living.' (see above, i.e. bars, restaurants, 'tiendas',...)

What makes this villa unique

You get a house with a pool and a BBQ for the price of an apartment!

Guestbook comments from the owner

El entorno de la casa es muy agradable, rodeado de árboles en una zona muy tranquila (sin tráfico) y segura (a 100 metros de la comisaria) . Punta del este centro está a 10 - 15 min en auto. El lugar es ideal para ir en familia y con niños. La casa es hermosa, cómoda y está equipadísima con todo lo que se puede necesitar para unas maravillosas vacaciones. Está muy bien pensada, tiene todas las comodidades y es imposible no sentirse cómodo. Tiene aire acondicionado y Tv en todos los cuartos.

Mauricio, el administrador, está siempre preocupado de lo que se pueda necesitar y la encargada de la casa Mariela, siempre disponible a atender cualquier situación que se presente, siempre con muy buena disposición. 100% recomendable.

Excelent property!!!!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at this amazing house in January 2016 with my teenager sons.

Booking and payment of the house was hassle free and secure.

The house is very well appointed, with everything you may need for a perfect holiday. Everything was perfect : welcome by Mariela, advices, house decoration and services, location, outdoor area with it's wonderful pool and BBQ.

Walking distance to everywhere, good internet, plenty of parking space, clean and new interiors, can't say enough of this property. We even booked an extra week while staying there!

Pasamos 10 días con nuestros hijos adolescentes. La casa es muy cómoda y aprovechamos mucho la pileta y la parrilla. El barrio es muy tranquilo pero seguro y se puede ir caminando al centro.

La Barra es uno de los lugares más lindos de Punta del Este.

Wonderful stay at La Barra

  • 5 of 5

We spent 5 days and our stay there was very pleasant. Everything was perfect : welcome, advices, house decoration and services, location, outdoor area. It has everything you need and for sure you will also want to stay longer! I have to give 10 stars to Mauricio, he was very kind and helpful, he made our stay very memorable.

The internet works perfectly, which is a plus if you also have to work a little bit! The house is very comfortable and still huge enought for 6 people :) The parking has plenty of place, that was great for us that got there in different cars. The beach is very reachable by foot and also the city center was very near by, so you do not need to go by car. I loved waking up early in the morning and be welcomed by a beautiful sunrise at the beach. Priceless!

Will definitely go back so we can enjoy the pool in summer season! The pool area is great for chilling out. The neighbourhood is very quiet which helps you to relax.

Cute House! Great hosts!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time in this property. My husband and I went with 2 friends for NYE and had a fabulous week. Mauricio and Mariela were extremely friendly and helpful. The house is very well maintained and has absolutely everything you need. While La Barra is young (very young 18yr olds) the location was excellent and allowed us to come and go from Jose Igancio and downtown as we pleased. We had an issue with the safe and Mariela fixed it within the same day. The pool and outdoor area is fantastic and we really enjoyed the BBQ. We highly recommend this property.

Such a private cute place in La Barra

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect get-a-way for us in La really can walk to the downtown and the beach if you want (about five blocks). The concierge (Mauricio and Mariela) do a phenomenal job of support (they both speak wonderful English which is a plus!). The house can easily sleep six or seven but two was perfect. The pool is very private and wonderful...quiet neighborhood and very well maintained. We stayed for five days and it could not have worked out better. The owner is very helpful and accommodating. Would definitely recommend this if you're looking for a more private, quiet retreat in Punta del Esta region...easy driving to all the coastal locations. Nothing but positives!

Great location, nicely furnished comfortable house

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in La Barra for 2 weeks back in November and had a great time. The house is in a great location in quieter La Barra, but close enough to shops and restaurants. The house has a lovely pool which was immaculately clean and any minor problems were quickly resolved by the very helpful local manager. The outside BBQ area was great fun. The only thing we would say is that an outside dining table would have been useful. Overall a very comfortable house which we would recommend to friends and family.

These beaches are a favourite spot for the younger generations as well as for many famous argentinian or uruguayan TV personalities and models. These are also some of the best surfing beaches in the coastline
