Dream House Combining Beach And Forest

This glorious property sits on the hill overlooking Punta´s most beautiful Solanas Bay and its premier location is within walking distance from the beach and a block from the Lussich Arboretum with trees from the 5 continents, breathtaking views of beaches, ranchland, lagoons, Gorriti Island and the city of Punta itself . The house is just 5 minutes from all local amenities and 10 minutes to the heart of Punta del Este to enjoy the casino, famed restaurants, port area and evening sophistication.

The house is among the most beautifully decorated and well appointed properties, surrounded by a very large and private flowering garden -its 6 independent bedrooms en suite make it perfect for extended families or 6 couples. Every detail for our visitor´s comfort has been provided -

The front deck facing the bay includes the beautiful swimming pool which enjoys sunshine till well after 8 PM- the very large back terrace has a gazebo and outdoor furniture, American grill and tables for outdoor eating - these two outdoor areas all connect to the main living area so that the spacious and open indoor/outdoor feeling is one of the aspects of the house our visitors always love - watch the sunrise from the terrace and the sunset from the deck!

The main floor includes a dining area, seating 12, a fireplace nook with arm chairs leading on to the main living room with TV, Internet connection (WIFI), Audio System, DVD and AC should the need arise. There is a piano and game table in an adjoining area for recreation.The open kitchen is modern and fully equipped with granite counter tops and a breakfast area - A hallway leads to the master bedroom and bath with a fireplace, private balcony overlooking the tree-filled garden and a California King bed. A small bedroom and full bath complete this level.

The garden floor includes a spacious hallway with a sofa and reading area which connects 3 beautiful independent bedrooms with picture windows and private baths - We can provide either double, or single beds. The two remaining bedrooms and bath en suite can be used as a separate apartment. Every bedroom has independent access both to the garden or the rest of the house and pool -

All the bathrooms are modern and attractive, and include bidets and both solar and back-up electric hot water.

The spacious garden includes a large B B Q shaded area with seating for 12 for the local custom of grilling a whole lamb or our natural grass fed beef over wood coals ( we can provide a person do to your 'asado') - The garden includes a carport for 2 cars or more - a gardner and pool boy are included in the rental -

Patricia and Omar are on call for any of your needs as we spend the summers in our beach cottage 15 minutes from the property.

About Omar Martinez

I am a musician and a property owner in the area. I grew up here but I have also traveled extensively and lived overseas. My wife and I enjoy living in Punta del Este very much, and we live a very active life. We are involved in the local international community and we are passionate environmentalists.

Omar Martinez purchased this villa in 1999

Why Omar Martinez chose Maldonado

We love the area because less than meters away you have incredible beaches, a unique arboretum, the famous Casapueblo Museum and art gallery, golf, horseback riding, sailing, farms, countrysides, restaurants, grocery store, and pretty much everything you want in a peaceful and beautiful setting.

What makes this villa unique

We speak many languages and can offer you some suggestions of the best things to do nearby. On the property you can enjoy the pool, the garden, you can make an 'asado' (barbeque), and eat breakfast on the patio. Each spacious bedroom has its own modern bathroom, so every guest will be very comfortable here. The artboretum is beautiful and should not be missed. It's right next door.

Hermosa propiedad, cómoda ideal para grandes grupos que gusten disfrutar entre ellos.

  • 5 of 5

Pasamos un fin de semana inolvidable en esta propiedad. Los dueños son super buena onda, dejan TODO a disposición de los huéspedes y quedan a la orden por cualquier inconveniente que llegara a surgir. La propiedad es paradisíaca, dormitorios cómodos todos ellos con baño. El sistema de paneles solares mantiene agua caliente para que todos los inquilinos se duchen libremente sin agua fría. Excelente iluminación natural en todos los espacios de la casa. La piscina disfrutable en todo horario solar. Hermoso parrillero con parque para estar al aire libre. Fue una estadía increíble. Gracias Omar y Patricia.

Amazing House, extremely nice owners and awesome location

  • 5 of 5

Excellent dream house, perfect location, confortable and located it in a safe area. Perfect place to unplug your self for the city chaos without be that far. Close to nice city of Punta del Este. We have a really great stay, we have the surprise that the house it’s bigger of what it looks in the pictures, and the garden and bbq area are excellent for sharing time with the family, and very safe for the kids to play around Excellent hosts that will provide you all the nice information about the area and give great advice of the top places to be in Punta Ballena and Punta del Este. We have amazing time there.

La belleza de casa que alquilamos, nos permitió vivir Punta del Este de una manera que no lo habíamos hecho antes. Espacios integrados y super cálidos con una vista única hicieron que nuestras vacaciones fueran en familia y a puro relax. Cada habitación con baño, nos permitió tener mucha comodidad. Y al volver de la plata poder disfrutar de la pileta o preparar los mejores asaditos en la parrilla que tiene. A la espera de poder regresar pronto!

Casa confortável e tranquila

  • 5 of 5

Eu e minha família passamos 08 dias na casa e realmente ela é tudo o que ele descreve.

Boas acomodações e espaço para descanso e lazer, além de uma paisagem idílica, tem tem vista para o mar de Praia Baleña e fica a poucas quadras da praia.

A casa possui todos os utensílios necessários para café da manhã, almoço ou churrasco, e oferece todo o necessário como cama, mesa e banho.

O Omar e a Patrícia foram muito gentis e nos ajudaram no caminho da chegada e nos deram ótimas dicas de passeio. Fomos a pé para o Museu do Azulejo e fizemos a trilha a pé, ao lado do museu, de onde pudemos apreciar toda Punta Del Este do alto.

Com certeza voltaremos e indicamos a quem quiser descansar, longe do agito de Punta, mas perto o suficiente para visitar Punta e todas as outras praias.

Obrigada Omar e Patrícia!!!
