our comfy and super well-located apartment will make your stay enjoyable. Just 1 block from the sea and only 5 mins to the city center, with easy access to all local transport.
Nice, Spacious and Sunny apartment in a great location, Barrio Sur, just 1 block from the seaside.
On the upper floor, one big spacious bedroom with a double bed, and a smaller room with a single bed, both with AC and big windows overlooking the patio (both with black out curtains in case it's too sunny in the morning time). Brand new beds and mattresses, which is essential after a long day sightseeing. Clean sheets and towels are provided. Both rooms have wardrobes and dressers so you don't have to keep your clothes inside your backpack :)
The bathroom has a shower and washing machine, and hot water all day long.
On the ground floor, big living area with a sofa bed. Integrated kitchen with a real oven and stove.
It also has a private patio which provides loads of sunlight, with comfy beach chairs to sunbathe and table to have a lovely brunch al fresco. There's loads of plants and clothesline to hang everything under the sun.
The house has air conditioning in every room, Internet with wifi, and all appliances and furniture to have a great stay, including oven, stove, juicer, microwave, freezer, fridge, toaster, iron, coffeemaker, and all cooking utensils so you can prepare your own meals, hairdryer, washing machine, etc. There´s deliberately no TV but we do have a nice collection of DVDs and vinyls
Food is not included but tea and instant coffee are available at any time of day, and there's space in the cupboard and fridge for our guests' stuff.
It’s located in very quiet building in the downtown area, 1 block from the sea (great for sunset watching). It’s close to universities, museums, cinemas, just minutes from the Old City, surrounded by restaurants, theaters, street markets, drugstores, laundromats, stores, etc.
Easy transportation to and from anywhere (bus tickets are 1 dollar). Parking at the door is free.
The apartment is cleaned once a week (no cost) and the towels/sheets/linens will be changed. Extra cleaning service can be arranged for a small fee.
I’ve been hosting for over 7 years now and I truly enjoy it. I will be happy to give you loads of tips for your stay, recommendations on events, shows, football games, places to eat, etc. You’ll also have a map, a local mobile phone and a guide for you on arrival.
Barrio Sur is super unique, you can find plenty of cultural stuff to do (Candombe every day), places to dance tango, and very friendly neighbours. It's one of the few places in Montevideo where children still play football in the street. Plus, it's just metres from the sea!
everything touristy is walking distance. There's buses nearby.
Si tuviera que hacerlo sólo con una frase diría "es como estar en casa". Lucía y sus amigos te hacen sentir así. Por lo demás, el barrio es cerca de todo, tranquilo y amigable, como lo es todo lo que una porteña como yo se lleva de Montevideo. Una subidita hasta el centro o una bajada cortita a ver el atardecer sobre la rambla. Lucía le agrega algunas cosas que te hacen sentir seguro (un celular gratuito para que la ubiques si la necesitás, un mensaje para saber que estás bien, una recomendación, etc.) En fin; todo se hace fácil con gente formidable como ella. No dudaría ni un instante en volver.
Lucia is an outstanding host - all the time you can feel how she plays her longtime hosting-experience off against you:) starting with a briefing-sheet that tells you the most important things: how to find that place, what is around and so on. i really felt familiar at her place. everything was fantastic: even the recommendation for the barber (by the way: thank you for writing that briefing-letter on spanish, it worked), the beef-restaurant next to the apartment (getting a gorgeous beef-restaurant-recommendation from a vegetarian tells a lot about the referrer) as well as the red-wine-finishing with friends & family at the seaside. i would love to come back and I can only recommend this place for a stay in montevideo to everybody!
Lu is excellent, as are her friends! She is very kind, helpful, outgoing, and is willing to make your stay a great one regardless of your interests. Her place is around the corner from a super market and the rambla (strolls along the beach!), and in general it is centrally located to downtown Montevideo. You can't go wrong with Lu.
Nice central location (10 minutes to Plaza de Independencia), nice two floor apartment, and great host! Thank you Lucia!
Very willing and able to help. Made life a lot easier. Recommended
