*** We have a problem with the en suite shower in the upstairs bedroom (getting fixed end of April)- you can still book, everything else works but it would be using the downstairs bedrooms or the downstairs bathroom for a shower, great for smaller groups!***

The space
Please note borders in Uruguay are to remain closed 2020 / 2021 for the summer season, except for Uruguayan citizens and foreign nationals with Uruguayan residency. We can only take booking from travelers who have Uruguayan residency or are Uruguayan citizens, thank you.

It's just steps from an empty beach, which gives you the tranquility of an ocean retreat whilst being minutes away from José Ignacio with its restaurants and cafés. Great interior design includes a glass wall in the living area, super comfortable areas to relax and a large Parrilla overlooking the pool and garden.

The spacious first-floor living room has floor to ceiling windows overlooking the ocean and Jose Ignacio lighthouse, comfortable sofa's, large wood burner, TV and speakers. Viejo Fox has a modern fully equipped kitchen and two dining areas, one in the large living area and a second relaxed eating area on the outside terrace by the large parrilla BBQ and pool. The entire roof at Viejo Fox is decked and from here you can enjoy stunning 360 degree views over the ocean.

You will enjoy luxury Egyptian bed lined. The master bedroom has a glass wall, dressing area and a modern en suite bathroom with bath. Two further bedrooms on the ground floor overlooking the garden can be either twin rooms or extra large double rooms. A fourth connecting room with a single bed can be used as a bedroom for a child or a second lounge.

Other things to note
***Important ***

Air conditioning - There is air conditioning in the downstairs bedrooms. Master bedroom faces the ocean and is cooler. Here we have the Dyson cooler which is safe for children.

We wanted to keep the peace and tranquility of the house so we have not installed satellite TV. Netflix is available and there is a DVD player with some children and adult DVD's.

There are some Bose WiFi speakers .

It is often difficult to get cash out in Jose Ignacio, good to get cash out at the airport or in La Barra.

Pool heating

It's great, Uruguay is nearly 95% renewable energy. The pool is 11 meters so you can have a proper swim. We can heat the pool but there will be an extra charge. Please let us know if you would like this. During the winter months pool heating is not available.

Location

José Ignacio, Departamento de Maldonado, Uruguay

Viejo Fox is stuated in the heart of the natural Arenas de José Ignacio surrounded by pine woods and Acacias with abundant bird life. The Arenas de Jose Ignacio has some of the best restaurants in José Ignacio. Tucked away in the woods is Marismo, Namm and Jardin de Sarava.

A couple of minutes walk from Viejo Fox are miles of wild ocean and empty beach. In summer the beach is great for sea fishing, horse riding, surfing or just resting and strolling along. In winter penguins and sea lions enjoy the beach. The views are breathtaking and extend from José Ignacio to Laguna Garzón. The bright light, reflections on the ocean, changing skies and vivid sunsets make Playa Brava an unforgettable place. Even during the short peak season the beach is peaceful and empty..

Some comments from our guests in Airbnb 2015 “Our stay at Viejo Fox was fantastic. Photos don’t do justice to the beauty of this place. The wrap around balcony and terrace provide unbeatable views of the the ocean and Jose Ignacio. Federica was very helpful in every single detail. We’ll be back”. Gustavo -Argentina /USA.

The house was amazing. With a wonderful sea view and an pretty modern and architectural look. Highlight was the roof terrace and the barbeque. Niko and family, Germany.
