About Maria Veronica Correa
Hello, my name is María Verónica Correa. Everyone tells me Verónica. I grew up in the interior of the country. At the age of 17 I came to Montevideo to study and here I married and formed my family. I received as a journalist and worked in several written media. I love to write and read. I also worked in two multinationals in areas of communication and marketing. This allowed me to learn a lot in other areas. In all my works, what I enjoyed the most was the possibility to meet people, to know about their lives, their projects and their talents. I currently work as a freelance journalist and communications and marketing consultant. I came to HomeAway as a user. I love traveling with my family and since we are 5 members, the most convenient option was always HomeAway. Being a host now puts me on the other side, I hope I can apply all the things I learned by using this system. I am one of those who writes on TripAdvisor about every place I go to. I always read the comments that other travelers leave. I think this kind of things help us improve and provide a better service. We have two dogs and we have just adopted a cat. I love music of all kinds, cooking, dancing ballet, taking care of plants and spending time with family. I enjoyed the apartment very much. I hope you enjoy it as much as I planned it. In every thing I chose I put my heart and also tried to see how I would feel if I were traveling. You will find books about Uruguay, Montevideo guides, maps and some other tips that can help you to know the city. I hope you find everything you need for a perfect stay.

Why Maria Veronica Correa chose Ciudad Vieja
The apartment, housed in a 19th century building, is located in the first neighborhood of Montevideo. There began the history of our country. A key point for trade with Europe, from the port began the construction of the rest of the city. This is why the historic center is a must see for all tourists. Not knowing the "Ciudad Vieja" is not knowing Montevideo. Architecture, design, art, music, smells and flavors coexist in this area giving it a unique and peculiar personality. El apartamento, alojado en un edificio del siglo XIX, se encuentra en el que fuera el primer barrio de Montevideo. Allí comenzó la historia de nuestro país. Punto clave para el comercio con Europa, desde el puerto se inició la construcción del resto de la ciudad. Es por esto que el casco histórico es una visita obligada para todos los turistas. No conocer la Ciudad Vieja es no conocer Montevideo. Arquitectura, diseño, arte, música, olores y sabores conviven en esta zona dándole una personalidad propia y peculiar. La mayoría de los museos están a pocas cuadras a la redonda, por lo que se pueden recorrer a pie. Tiendas de regalos, ferias artesanales, panaderías, supermarkets, casas de cambio, bicicletas para recorrer la zona, oficina de información turística, restaurantes, cafés y bares, abundan por el barrio. Hay rotiserías que ofrecen comida pronta para llevar para cuando el plan es comer en casa y muchas de ellas hacen delivery. Caminar por las peatonales, parar a tomar un café o un rico vino, descubrir las tiendas de muebles antiguos, librerías y casas de arte, es parte de lo que ofrece este barrio, además de un pantallazo de nuestra cultura e idiosincrasia. Escuchar desde el balcón el sonar de los tambores que recorren las calles del Mercado del Puerto, sentir el aroma de la carne asada, las risas de los transeúntes, música, conversaciones, todo esto es posible en este rincón de Montevideo.

I'm so glad I let my husband pick this apartment. Beautiful old building, apartment has been very nicely renovated. Terrace was a nice plus to have. Everything you would need in kitchen. Close to shopping. Nice bed. Architecture of the neighborhood was beautiful. My Uruguayo husband was my walking tour guide. Maria, the owner, answered any questions we had, and graciously allowed a much longer stay than we had originally planned, for which we were eternally grateful. Do not miss the chance to stay here!
Great apartment in old town next to ferry
We are adventurous travelers and like staying in older parts of cities. This was a wonderful apartment that has everything we needed. It had high ceilings, a king size bed, large bathroom, and excellent air conditioning. It was right next to the port so you can walk from the ferry. Took a hop on hop off bus that you catch block away to see the rest of the city. Some very good restaurants nearby. It is a tourist area because the cruise ship docks nearby. Veronica was very responsive to our emails and helpful during our visit. We highly recommend if you want to be in the old city.
Relaxing with no agenda!
From the scheduling of the rental, communication with the owner, transportation from and to the airport, and the ease of the neighborhood was ALL easy, efficient, and professional. Recommending a stay here for everyone!!
Thank you Matthew. It was a pleasure to receive you. Next time I hope I could meet you. Thanks for choose my place for your holidays! All the best. Maria
Very Nice in Old town
We love the apartment and the hostess very helpful. It is very flöde to the Port Market.
Absolutely delightful stay
This apartment exceeded our expectations and Maria was the most delightful and helpful host.
The apt. is perfectly located in the old part of Montevideo and is walking distance from the Buquebus Ferry Terminal. The decor is very well done with great art and furnishings. The unit is also very well equipped for cooking and having access to the laundry was a bonus. Across the street is Montevideo Wine Experience ... a must visit place where owner Niko will welcome you . Next door to MVW is Es Mercat a very good seafood restaurant! One thing to consider is the proximity to some bars that play music quite late. We did not find this to be a great hardship but worth being aware of. Thank you again Maria for making our stay so memorable!!

Most museums are a few blocks away, so you can walk on foot. Gift shops, craft fairs, bakeries, supermarkets, bureaux de change, bicycles to tour the area, tourist information office, restaurants, cafes and bars, abound in the neighborhood. There are rotiserías that offer ready-to-go food for when the plan is to eat at home, many of them do delivery. Walking through the pedestrian streets, stopping for a coffee or a rich wine, discovering antique furniture stores, bookshops and art houses, is part of what this neighborhood offers, as well as a glimpse of our culture and idiosyncrasy. From the balcony, listen to the sounds of the drums that run through the streets of the Mercado del Puerto, feel the aroma of roasted meat, the laughter of passers-by, music, conversations, all this is possible in this corner of Montevideo.
One block away is the tourist bus stop as well as local transport. It is very easy to move from this area to other parts of the city. Anyway, most of the Museums are within walking distance from the apartment.
