About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 6

Enjoy a well earned rest in Playa del Viuda on Uruguay's golden coast.

A cool glass of wine on the roof terrace taking in the majestic Atlantic Ocean or a well grilled steak from the open air parrilla after a hard day on the beach or taking in the beautiful scenery around this charming coastal fishing village.

The house is modern and elegant spread over 3 levels with decks with ocean view on each level.

There are 2 bedrooms en suite on the ground floor both with access to the deck, a spacious living area on the first floor, which provides the choice of eating indoors or al fresco on the deck, and a further bedroom and roof terrace on the second floor.

The house sits in its own garden with full size uruguayan barbeque and seating area.

Fully equipped, wifi, satellite TV/DVD, washing machine and fully air conditioned; we even provide the wood for the fire and the barbecue.

For cooler autumn evenings sit in front of the open hearth whilst enjoying a glass of Tannat.

The village of Punta del Diablo has all amenities and is located within 3 hours of Montevideo Airport, 50 km (30 mi) from the Brazilian border. Other areas of interest close to Punta del Diablo are:

Cabo Polonio is about 40 minutes south. It is a fun, wild trip in old ww2 4x4 trucks through the sand dunes and along the beach – there is no road or other vehicle access. There are a few restaurants, but the village is famous for its sea lion colony and the expansive views from the top of the lighthouse - in season you may even see migrating Southern Right whales. Alternatively if you are interested in colonial history why not visit Fortaleza Santa Teresa, a national historic museum which is halfway between Punta del Diablo and Chuy; built by the Portuguese before the Spanish took it over and still in a great state of repair. Or if you fancy a boat trip and walk through woods there is Monte de Ombues is on the way to Cabo Polonio, you can take a boat to visit the forest, the most extensive Ombues forest in the Plata region.

The coastline provides long golden beaches, warm summer swimming and good surf opportunities. Restaurants serve locally caught fish and the other staples of the famed Uruguayan cuisine: Steak, Chivitos and Milanesas and fresh pasta. so there is always something delicions to eat when the appetite strikes.

Truly a home away from home

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I booked a week in early March. We fell in love with the place right away and ended up staying in this lovely home for 3 whole weeks!

The home is spacious with lots of comfortable spots to enjoy the ocean views, sunshine and cool breezes. You will find everything you need for a perfect stay.

The kitchen is fully equipped, complete with our-door sitting areas & wood burning grill. You will however need to supply all food items, even pantry items/staples. We prefer to do our own cooking so we were fine with this. There are plenty of good shops for groceries near by or drive into Chuy if you don't can't find what your looking for, you'll definitely find it there. If you want to dine out, there are plenty of options in town, just 5 minutes in the car.

The third floor deck is an great place to take afternoon sun, have late afternoon cocktail or star gaze at night. The star are fantastic!

The house stays pretty cool but the ac works like a charm if you need it.

There is a brand new clothes washer and a clothes line out in the yard, so that makes life easy too.

There's a beach umbrella and beach chairs as well as beach towels available for a day at the shore as well as as a small cooler to keep your drinks cold in the hot sand! Seriously, they thought of everything! The beach is a 5 minute walk thru the sand dunes and is huge. Nice walk to the light house or to town!

There are some fun things to do near by if you can't take anymore relaxation. Both the owner and caretaker can advise you.

The property is clean, well kept and has all the amenities mentioned in the listing description. If you need the house cleaned or if you need anything at all just contact the caretaker Alejandro. He is terrific and came to our rescue more than once! He can give advice about things to do in the area, where to eat or drink, he can fix any problem and knows everyone in town. He's a real gem. Oh, but brush up on your Spanish because he does not speak English.

We would highly recommend this place to anyone. But definitely go for more than just few days. It's a great place to unwind, relax and enjoy yourselves!

Thank you for everything. We hope to return someday!
