We had high expectations for the Penthouse in Sarandi given all the reviews and the pictures - yet somehow our expectations were exceeded. We really cannot recommend this highly enough.
The apartment - this is the best fitted airbnb we've stayed in. Very high quality pans and utensils, 4 ring gas hob, coffee machine, nice crockery and cutlery etc. We weren't wanting for anything. The living room area is very comfortable, great TV and stereo, eating area and breakfast bar. Feels very spacious. It is quiet in the apartment, the air conditioning works very well and runs very quietly, there's fans for the bedrooms and we were very comfortable despite the high heat.
Location - If you want to stay in the historic area of Montevideo, then you could not be better located on Sarandi, which is the main shopping street. Walking distance to the port market, shops, and supermarkets.
Experience with hosts - Erica and Greg were so helpful we couldn't have asked for more. They have a very comprehensive guide that has everything you need to know about the area (*read their food recommendations - there is truly exceptional eating options available, places you might not find without this guide!), lots of info about all the electronics in the house, they provide you with a cell phone to make local phone calls. We stayed a month and messaged them a few times and they were always very quick to respond.
Vor zwei Jahren waren wir das erste Mal bei Greg und Erika. Schon nach diesem Aufenthalt wussten wir, wir kommen wieder. Eigentlich sagt das schon alles. Das Penthouse ist toll, die Lage fantastisch und die Gastgeber sind einfach Freunde. Alles, was man sich unter einem Urlaub vorstellt.
Hace dos años, fuimos la primera vez Greg y Erika. Después de esta estancia sabíamos que vamos a volver. De hecho, eso lo dice todo. El penthouse es genial, la ubicación es fantástica y los greg y erica son sólo amigos. Todo lo que te imaginas tomando unas vacaciones.
Erica and Greg were very welcoming and when there were issues they dealt with them immediately. I stayed there for 3 months and hope to return again for a longer stay later this year.
The apartment is in excellent condition with everything you could possibly need provided. The only problem is when there is heavy rain you do get leaks as the building is old.
It is a lively area during the day and can get a bit noisy with street musicians but it is quiet at night. I would recommend this apartment as a very good place to stay and Erica and Greg are excellent hosts.
Passamos ótimos dias na estadia em Montevidéu!
O apartamento é realmente muito bom, bem equipado e super confortável. Realmente tudo o que estava no anúncio foi atendido. A Erica e o Greg foram muito solícitos e atenciosos em tudo o que precisamos.
O apartamento está preparado para você poder viver, descansar e aproveitar a cidade sem nenhuma preocupação.
I stayed in Montevideo with three other friends and we loved the apartment. We traveling all through Latin America, and this was our favorite place to stay. The apartment is very cozy, and has a very stocked kitchen with all the supplies you need to cook a good meal! Erica and Greg are very helpful, responsive, and willing to accommodate whenever possible. You can tell they care about the experience their guests have, and it made us feel very at home. Their apartment 'bible' book was full of great tips for restaurants, bars, and things to see to make the most of your time in Montevideo. The area right in the middle of the old town, and has lots of shops, restaurants and lots of life.
Excelente apartamento y excelentes propietarios, que nos recibieron con pan casero y nos subieron las maletas. Ecelente ubicación también, en el corazón de Ciudad Vieja, cerca de todo a pie y al lado de todas las paradas de omnibús. Cuando regresemos a Montevideo, será allí donde vayamos.
Excellent apartement et excellents proprios, qui nous ont réús avec du pain fait maison et ont monté nos énormes valises. L'appart est en plein coeuer de Ciudad Vieja, près de tout et aussi des arrêts de bus, mais nous avons quaisment tout fait à pied. quand on reviendra à Montevideo, c'est chez Grégoire et Erika qu'on ira.
