House, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 9)

Ocean, Views, Location, Contemporary House

'LaMolina' is located in Punta Ballena, a unique and privileged place of Punta del Este, one of the best beaches of South America.

In Punta del Este you will find shopping centers, famous international shops, lots of sophisticated restaurants as well enjoy many night options as discotheques and pubs which makes it being labeled the 'Saint Tropez' or the 'Ibiza' of South America.

The house is placed on the top of one of the hills of Punta Ballena, offering magnificent views not only of the ocean but also of the forest and the colorfull sunset over the sea.

Modern, elegant and comfortable, the house is very well placed just three blocks (5 minutes) from the nearest beach, ten minutes from Punta del Este and also from other beatiful beaches.

The entrance in the main floor has a spacious living room, dining room and kitchen, all integrated with big sliding glass doors allowing to have great bay views.

Outside on the exceptional terrace and decks there is a big barbacue in front of the sea to enjoy the sunset, tasting urugayan steak and wines.

In the lower floor there are 4 bedrooms and 2 complete bathroms (main in suite).

All rooms have sea view and own exit to the tree filled garden with beautiful pool and deck landscaped with grass and flowers

The house has all amenities for vacacion, which makes it ideal for couples or to share with family and friends, combining the peace of Punta Ballena and the glamour and sophistication of Punta del Este.

About Paula Urrutia

We are a middle aged couple with two little daughters. We´ve being looking for some place like this for years till we finally found Punta Ballena. The house was built by paying attention to every little detail. The decoration was specially selected by me.

We both are professionals in global international firms and work many hours a week. We absolutely love this place in which we find peace, relax and lot of family activities to enjoy with the girls and the rest of the family

Paula Urrutia purchased this villa in 2000

Why Paula Urrutia chose Uruguay

The place was specially selected to have sea view and see the sunset in front of us, to find peace and mainly to enjoy it with family and friends.

What makes this villa unique

Very comfortable house with big areas. Magnificent view. Close to many turistic attractions.

We stayed at this villa and it's simply amazing. The owner was extremely helpful with arranging everything prior to arrival. I've always been sceptical of online pictures of hotels/villas as they never truly reflect reality but when we saw the place all those fears were dismissed. The pictures certainly give a good idea on the beauty of the place but don't capture it all. You must go and see for yourself the sunsets, the view...It certainly is a magical place. Calm place far from noisy centers but actually very close to everything. Perfect place and excellent service make ideal vacations to remember forever. Highly recommended.

Bad experience

  • 2 of 5

My first bad review ever. You only know the people when troubles come and in this situation the owners were very technical and cold, giving no help at all (even saying in e-mails that they were available). The living and kitchen area and the pool were OK, like they should be. The problem is the entire level of the bedrooms and bathrooms: bad smell, old furniture, dust, link, holes on the sheet. After a few days I tried to negotiate a smaller stay, but they were unflexible. The result: we paid for 3 weeks and left one week before, leaving more than two thousand dollars that we didn't enjoy and went to a Hotel in Punta. My sincere opinion: the worst deal you can do is allow a guest leave unsatisfied. I left feeling bad for my family not have had the comfort they deserve and for the unresponsive owners. I guess I am a lucky person that had made so many friends renting their houses over the world and receiving their kindness. I learned my lesson.

Owner's Response: Unluckily this guest and his family spent their stay (Feb 2014 )with the worst summer weather we've ever had for the last 10 years. It rained more than 500cc in 7 days, wich is absolutely unusual here at summer. This not only have made everybody impossible to enjoy and be as much relaxed as wished, but also caused humidity and discomfort in many properties. It's known many visitors decided to leave cause of Feb 2014 rain. Fortunately the house didn´t suffer any damage and was in good condition to spend comfortable time in it, but seemed this family didn´t wanted to. It obviously was impossible to plan any kind of outdoor activity, so he and his family decided to move to a hotel with indoor activities, which was perfectly understandable. Problem here was this person was not honest enough and claimed for his money back using all kind of unreal support it. These was not part of the rental arrangement between us so he decided to include all excuses he could in his review. It've rented the house since 8 years. This is the first time it happens to me and hope the last. I always take care a lot to all of my guests. Reviews proves it. Luckily all visitors, except from him, were really lovely and honest. Many of them returned. Hope this clarifies, explains his sadness and for sure makes forgivable his review.-

We spent a wonderful week at the villa. We have 3 boys and they enjoyed the house and the pool. The views from the villa at sunrise and sunset are the most beautiful we have ever seen. We also went to Punta del Diablo and other places and beaches but it was difficult to leave the house. The owners are very helpful and the house has all amenities.

Loved the house

  • 5 of 5

This was my family’s 4th trip to Punta del Este, Uruguay. It’s literally a different world that changes all who visit. This was our first time in this house, and was amazing, by far the best one we’ve ever rented there. It is very comfortable, recommended to spend some days near the beach and also the forest. The views – especially from the living room and the terrace --were dazzling. Also owners were very kind, considering every detail for us and our kids. Thank you so much for welcoming us to this heavenly spot. We hope to return soon!
