About Ilona Szemzo

Retired World Banker. Enjoys northern hemisphere winters in Southern Hemisphere's best beach destination - Punta del Este, Uruguay

Ilona Szemzo purchased this apartment in 2000

Why Ilona Szemzo chose Uruguay

My apartment has a unique architectural design. Western exposure allows us to watch a different sunset every evening. This is the beach I was raised on as a child, and it maintains a unique place in my heart. My blend of modern and antique furnishings provides the home with a European flair, while maintaining the highest standards of comfort.

What makes this apartment unique

After I finished remodeling my apartment, I can now watch the ocean and the sky from every public space in the apartment. The bedrooms face the opposite side of the building, so I can see the sun come up on the days that I wake up early enough.

Excelente departamento frente a la Mansa con vista al Mar

  • 5 of 5

Pasé junto a mi familia unos dias maravillosos en el departamento de Ilona. Es un excelente departamento, muy alegre con muy buena vista al mar, excelente ubicación frente a la mansa parada 25, un estar comedor muy amplio y luminoso, una terraza con vista a la playa que te permite comer y desayunar casi sobre la playa y con unos atardeceres soñados.

El departamento es amplio y está muy bien equipado, con todo lo necesario para pasarla bárbaro.

Ilona fue muy atenta y amable, siempre respondió correctamente y rápido frente a cada consulta. El encargado del edificio, Walter, fue muy amable recibiendonos y facilitando cualquier necesidad que tuvieramos.

Es muy recomendable, nos encantaria regresar.

Muchas gracias Ilona y Walter.


Pablo y flia.

La vacanza perfetta- a perfect vacation

  • 5 of 5

I spent wonderful days with my family in Ilona apartment: cozy, fully furnished, and with a fantastic view from the private terrace, looking at the sunset and the beach. Location for us was perfect , just out of the crowd and yet close to all amenities. Highly recommended!

An unforgettable stay near the sea

  • 5 of 5

We stayed with my family for a week in the apartment. Great time, the apartment is very comfortable and from the windows we could see the sea ... Also is well equipped (internet, TV, heating and AC, kitchen appliances, etc.). The rooms are spacious and bright. The bathrooms were made again, with great quality and design. From the terrace crossed to go to the beach. The place has large garage to store the car. You feel very comfortable.
