Punta del Este House Rental Photos and Description
5 Bedrooms, 4 Bathrooms, Loft, Sleeps 10

Magnificent country house close to all in Punta del Este but secluded from all too. All you hear are birds signing, all you see is wildlife and all you breathe is a fresh scent of the countryside. Once the main house for a large family of the farm owners. Now fully equipped to be a year round retreat! Cozy, spacious, extremely private (no neighbors in sight!), with pool, magnificent view of the lake 'Laguna del Diario', surrounded by pastures, horses, birds (teru-teru, Chaja, venteveo, swans, horneros), foxes, wild hares, etc.

El Angel at Granja Henderson: El Angel is the largest of the five available at 'Granja Henderson', an 111 acre farm in the heart of Punta del Este. It is the main house and sits on a 2.5 acre lot.

Every guest staying at Granja Henderson has complementary access to all the vegetables that are grown on site at the organic vegetable garden!

Wildlife is abundant here. It is amazing to be so close to Punta and be able to enjoy mother nature at its fullest without the noises, people, traffic, pollution associated with city life.

Here is a list of some wildlife that surrounds the Granja Henderson:

lots of birds (Chaja, tero teru, hornero, swans, benteveo, pirincho, picaflor, cotorra, golondrina, halconcito, gorrion, cuervillo, sabia, ratonera, picabuey, garza, calandria, carancho, carpintero, cisne, cuervo, viudita, paloma, tordo, zorzal, chimango, chingolo, churrinche, murcielago, picapalo, golondrinas, tijereta, gallineta),

Zorro, nutria, mulita, aperia, huron, liebre, zorillo, comadreja, guazu, aperea.

History: This was my mother's patch. Her childhood farm. Her parents acquired it in 1942. The place she grew up on. Where her whole family spent their holidays and weekends. Second home and until recently first one too. Originally a chicken farm, later a dairy, then a Quarter Horse breeding facility. Now, rental of cottages.

A little about the lake. Laguna del Diario is called thus because the horses that were used a great deal or on a daily basis for the garrison (colonial times) were allowed loose on the fields around the lake. The Sierra de la Ballena was hostile and they didn't climb up over it. So the daily horses were to be fetched from there. This is the translation for Diario. A diario means on a daily basis. All places in the countryside in Uruguay that are a Dead End are named Rincón. Thus the area where my father's farm was, was called Rincón del Diario. It is in disuse now, as another road has been built to access the area.

History - El Cisne: ''El Cisne'' was the first cottage built on the farm; 1943. The name came from the swans found on Laguna del Diario, in droves, lots of black necked swans swimming placidly on the lake. My grandfather lived here with my mother's family on weekends and holidays while he went building the rest of the farm. Being a civil engineer he knew what he was doing... and being extra-thorough of character he built with a sturdiness that people nowadays, when we recycle some building shake their heads in disbelief!

The pergola under which many outside lunches are enjoyed in the summer, with exuberant foliage, is purely purple flowers in spring. Quite a sight. Many a barbecue is cooked on the ''parrillero''.

Hace 14 años que tomamos nuestras vacaciones en la Granja Henderson. Es realmente fantastico este lugar. En el Angel, Granja Henderson podemos encontrar la libertad de movimiento para nuestros hijos. Ellos andan todo el dia en bicicleta libremente ya que esta cerrado. Podemos comer lechugas organicas, queso y diferentes productos que aqui se cultivan. Con Guillermo y Yanet al mando, uno jamas tiene un problema. Guillermo soluciona enseguida todo y lo mas importante, dan una enorme seguridad. Esperamos poder seguir viniendo a la Granja Henderson.

Mis niños se van con lagrimas en los ojos... hasta el olor de la casa llevan con ellos.

My extended family rented out all the cottages on this farm for a family reunion. We had a great time and wonderful memories.
The location is beautiful, ideal for children and adults spending time together.
The staff was very attentive and friendly, the house was spotless.
This house is surrounded my beautiful gardens and horses! We enjoyed the pool and view to the lake.
Can't wait for next year!

Beautiful home minutes from the beach but worlds away from the crowds

A group of 10 of us had an amazing time at this beautiful, well kept home. The grounds are lush, green and extensive, dotted with flowering plantings and horses in the further fields. The pool is a divine temperature and is backlit by simple, elegant lights. The patio is ideal for a bountiful brunch with friends, afternoon drinks and an evening parrilla (the outdoor grill by the kitchen makes authentic meats easy to prepare). We had a phenomenal time and I highly recommend the property and location.

The owner was very accessible by email and the groundskeeper was available on site whenever we wanted advice on beaches, assistance with the kitchen, or to practice Spanish. Sleeping 10 in beds was easy, and the three bathrooms plus one by the pool made showers easy to come by.

Casa Pueblo is nearby, as are grocery stores and other important conveniences. While it is about a 20 minute drive to Punta del Este proper, the distance was welcome after a day at the beach. It was a treat to come home to this place. Definitely worth a repeat visit. Enjoy your stay!
