ROMANTIC, EXOTIC PUNTA DEL ESTE/LABARRA/MONTOYA BEACH HOME, 400 METERS TO OCEAN

Punta del Este House Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, 1 half bathroom, sleeps 6 near beach and casino

'Beleza Pura’', means “True Beauty”, and lives up to its name. The home is a charming, character-filled beach house with views of the ocean, a short walk from exciting Montoya Beach. The quaint living room has decks to the East and West through sliding glass walls; one, for early or mid-day meals faces the palm trees to the front of the house; the other opens to the parilla and evening cocktails. Or eat in the dining area between the granite countered kitchen and the bamboo covered deck. A large fireplace forms the centerpiece of the living area. A second fireplace in the midst of the master bedroom creates fabulous late night atmosphere. You are never far from the outdoors, as every room has a door and a deck (five of them) or patio. You can see the ocean surf from the bedroom decks, or better yet, stroll to famous Montoya Beach, 400 meters away. Surfing and fishing is excellent, as is the people watching. The 5 star Mantra Casino is just 2 blocks away. Rent a car. Driving is safe.

The Area: A sleepy little town in the off season, LaBarra teams with people in the high season. Nearby restaurants, art galleries, spa, casino, bars and clubs are active in the high season, but can be limited in the off peak times. Montoya Beach is just at the end the street, a short walk away. Surfing, surf fishing and people watching are excellent activities. Up the coast are deserted beach areas and quaint art communities. Uruguay is safe, friendly, and a very nice place to spend some time. Fly to Buenos Aires and then to either Montevideo or Punta del Este. Car rentals are available and the roads are well maintained. Montevideo, the capital, is a well preserved European like city with sidewalk restaurants, bazaars, and sights to see. Punta del Este is about an hour and a half drive from Montevideo. Extraordinarily helpful and competent management staff will care for your every need.

Punta del Este Area: The Punta del Este region is centered on the peninsula and extends along the coast in both directions for seven miles. Playa Mansa is the beach that extends toward Montevideo, and Playa Brava heads off to the northeast and LaBarra. The tip of the peninsula separates the Atlantic Ocena from Rio de la Plata, although the water all appears as ocean. Playa Mansa offers calm swimming beaches while the Playa Brava area lends itself to rugged surf. Prices are economical as great meals can be had for $15 to $20 per person. The sidewalk restaurants on the peninsula offer ambiance and wonderful music filled late night dining. The Conrad Hotel and Casino as well as the near by Mantra offer english speaking staffs. A real estate revival is in progress here, with many new high rises under construction. Uruguay is often referred to as the Switzerland of South America. The locals welcome tourists as they are the lifeblood of the community.

Want to invest in real estate in Uruguay?: This friendly country is modern, clean and creative. Prices are moderate. Streets are safe. You will feel welcome and comfortable here. A sizeable expat community exists in the Punta area. The real estate is affordable, banks will welcome your account, and competent and trustworthy real estate professionals will help you with your search.

About John Myers

I live in the United States in the state of Minnesota. I own rental properties in Uruguay, Bariloche Argentina, Grand Pacifica Nicaragua, Palm Springs California and Waikoloa Beach Hawaii.

John Myers purchased this house in 2005

Why John Myers chose Punta del Este

I bought this home for its unique beauty, character and charm. La Barra is a charming small town near Punta del Este and the home is a short walk to the beach. I purchased the adjacent lot which has been incorporated into the property for extra privacy and enjoyment.

What makes this house unique

This architect designed home with multiple levels and unique rooms will delight you. The many outdoor decks and the outdoor fire grill (parrilla) are my favorite places to enjoy morning coffee, an afternoon beer or glass of local wine and a finely cooked lomo. You won't forget your stay in this home. My property managers go out of their way to make your stay enjoyable and will help you with car rental, logistics, sights to see and travel tips.

Simply incredible and memorabe!

  • 5 of 5
Hi John,
Just want to say a special thank you for the superb accommodations and memorable stay in beautiful La Barra. Your home is impeccable and so very charming, we so loved our one month stay and found it difficult to leave. The house is perfectly located, five minutes to the beach and a relaxing 10 minute walk into town. What we appreciated so much was how well equipped it is and as such made it easy to enjoy many wonderful dinners at home. Our favorite restaurant in La Barra was Pura Vida which was recommended by your first class property manager Nora. She really made our stay so very enjoyable, her endearing personality and professional approach made everything effortless. Nora's English is impeccable and so communication was a breeze. We also so enjoyed spending time sitting and relaxing in your beautifully landscaped lawn. Because we both enjoy walking, the closeness of the great beaches and the short walk into town that we did feel the need for a car for the full month. On 3 occasions Nora arranged 3 day car rentals at great rates and allowed us to enjoy the sights of Punta del Esty, the drive and beaches of Jose Ignacio and Punta Balleina and many other nearby towns and beaches. The variety of shops in La Barra are incredible. La Barra is such a friendly, beautiful and safe place to enjoy a holiday. At day end, after lots of touring, beaching and walking we always looked forward to the tranquility, privacy and comforts of your lovely home. A special thanks to you and Nora for making our stay in La Barra so very enjoyable and memorable.

Perfect

  • 5 of 5
Beleza Pura was perfect for our visit to La Barra and the surrounding area. After spending a week in Montevideo, we were ready to unwind and relax and this house and village were the perfect place to do just that. The house is lovely and comfortable. The neighborhood is striking in its varying architectural vernacular, and we found it interesting, accessible, comfortable, safe, beautiful, and pleasing. You can walk to the beach and town, you can easily get to Punta del Este and Jose Ignacio by car. Nearby, within walking distance, you'll find restaurants and shops, art and wine, and some of the world's most beautiful beaches that stretch for miles. After you're done sunning or sightseeing, coming home to Beleza Pura is well, like coming home. The kitchen is well equipped and very functional, the master bedroom and bath are large and comfortable. While we didn't use the two additional bedrooms, they were nicely appointed. The living room and outside decks are lovely. We used the parilla several times and bought beef and chicken in the local market to grill.

Nora, the owners local contact was delightful, helpful, and a pleasure. We highly recommend Beleza Pura for anyone looking for a beautiful, comfortable, and perfect beach vacation.

Lovely Location Pretty House

  • 5 of 5
This house is perfect for a visit to the Atlantic Coast of Uruguay - situated close to cute restaurants in Manantiales and La Barra, and close to Punta del Este for more amazing restaurants. Down the coast 20 min is famous Jose Ignacio and amazing beaches and MORE restaurants. This house is perfectly in the middle of everything - with a gorgeous beach just a short walk down the street. House is cute and charming, nice yard. Manager Nora (lives in the area) is great and very helpful with any questions. Perfect vacation. Wood for fires, washing machine, lots of extra blankets and towels. Excellent price for the area. We are delighted and highly recommend.

quality home

  • 5 of 5
We were delighted with our week in john's home- it is well furnished with joyful colours, and the pictures on the internet do not do the home justice. the kitchen is well equipted, we chose to spend most of our evenings at home, enjoying the barbacue area, and then walking down to the beach to sip on local lemencello to watch the stars and ocean waves. the beach is popular and busy by day, but at night we had it to ourselves, except for the odd fisherman. We generally travelled east to less crowed beaches and avoided punte del este. There is a wonderful wine store in the next town over, and we were able to try some special local wines. We made one amazing discovery worth sharing,- the tennis ranch at exit 27 allows members by day for $25 us. We played hours of tennis on the red clay courts on the days we joined, and enjoyed the wonderful restauant and pool. If you are tennis players, this is a real find! nora was there to meet us and was incredibly helpful, givnig good suggestions for things to do in the area. This is a home, and not just a rental property. John was very helpful too, and clearly loves and is rightfully proud of his beach home. The house is perfect for a family, or two couples. There is a full bathroom and bedroom on the main floor, and the master bathroon and bedroom are on the second floor, along with another bedroom and a half bathroom. Everything was impecabley clean and works. We would highly recommend this home. We will be back. Janet et Fernand

Wonderful house to stay in

  • 4 of 5
This was a wonderful place to stay if you want to be away from downtown punta del este, which we wanted! Close to a surfing beach and great places to eat. The only issue we had is be ready to buy everything you need for the house. Spices, toilet paper, shampoo, beach towels, trash bags etc. Also, you will have to pay for water, electricity and gas which I guess is the norm in Uruguay. With saying that, the bedrooms were beautiful and comfortable, the kitchen was big and well stocked and the living room was very comfortable as well. Nora who is the property manager is awesome and provides great tips on what to see and do. Be aware that everything in this area is super expensive.

Owner's Response: I invited my property manager in Uruguay (Nora) to reply to this review. Her comments..."I manage several properties. Beleza Pura is our number one rental. Guests loves its charm. We try to make our renter's stay as enjoyable as possible. We are in Uruguay so we apply the Uruguayan rental standards. Rental properties in Punta del Este and greater Uruguay rarely provide bed and bathroom linens( renters bring their own or rent them from linen rental businesses); Because most of our renters come from afar, we provide these items in our properties, billing renters only to launder the items used during their stay. Utilities are extra, standard procedure in Uruguay. Meters are read at arrival and again at departure. The electric, telephone and water companies allow on-line meter reading. Utilities are extra because electricity and water are very expensive; the more you consume the more you are charged per unit used. The increasing incremental charge encourage conservation, minimize waste and protects the environment.
Upon arrival at the property the beds are already made. We provide toilet paper and soap in the bathrooms so you will be able to freshen up when you arrive; however, we do not provide these items for your entire stay. This is one of the differences between booking a hotel room and rental home. We provide coffee and sugar at Beleza at the request of the owner. In the kitchen cabinet you will usually find salt, pepper and a few spices. Seasonal rentals usually don't keep food items in their cabinets to avoid attracting insects. You will not find any garbage bags. A few sizes are available to purchase at the store but most people use the plastic shopping bags from the grocery stores and recycle them as garbage bags. When our renters arrive at the house, we show the property and explain its workings. Then we usually give them some information about the area such as places to dine and sightseeing recommendation. A check-in usually takes a good hour. I provide a lot of information that is sometimes remembered but is also forgotten, but I can always be reached on my cell phone to clarify information or any doubts. Our aim is to make your stay in this beautiful home & area as enjoyable as possible; different standards, different culture all make it difficult to please everybody but we have to apply Uruguayan standards. We go the extra mile to make your stay as enjoyable as possible and solving problems as soon as possible when they occur."
