The Space

Come stay in Piriadisio - a bit of Paradise in Piriapolis!
3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms - Sleeps 6 - minimum stay is one week

Located in very scenic Piriapolis, Uruguay, this house is only a 5 minute walk from ‘Playa Grande’ beach. This house is located in the barrio de Los Angeles, a quiet, family friendly, neighborhood of Piriapolis, ideal for people seeking a tranquil and relaxing atmosphere. From Piriadisio house you can easily walk everywhere: to the waterfront and beach in 5 min, to Piriapolis downtown with its bars, restaurants and little shops in 20 min. Uruguayans particularly enjoy walking up and down the seafront boardwalk 'La Rambla'. If you want to get around it is also very enjoyable using the bikes that we have available for our guests. At the beach or from The Rambla, you may even be lucky enough to see sea turtles, sea lions or whales during your stay. It is the only beach town in Uruguay with the hills meet the ocean. Piriapolis is not Punta del Este, if trendy parties are your thing, you won’t find it in Piriapolis. However, if you are looking for a great relaxed time at the beach, beautiful sunsets and perhaps a tasty ice cream on the Rambla, Piriapolis would be ideal for you.

We are very excited to offer a newly remodeled kitchen to our guests. It is fully equipped with new appliances, including a dishwasher for extra convenience, during your stay with us. For additional comfort, we’ve added a new comfortable modern couch and desk area to the living room. And couch seating on the patio for those warm summer nights.

One of Piriadisio’s best features is its 42 sq. meter, 450 sq. foot covered outdoor patio and barbecue area with a grill, wood-fired oven, and sink - great for relaxing and enjoying meals outside. You will have plenty of spare room to invite family or friends over. The patio is also perfect to do a little bird watching, almost daily and depending on the season the backyard has some visitors like: green parrots, hummingbirds, bright red headed wood peckers, water chickens and more bright colored exotic birds that we have not yet identified. You may even be lucky enough to see a humming bird stop at one of our feeders for a quick bite. We’ve got some Uruguay bird books at the house for you to flip through if you fancy.

This house is very accessible by bus. There is a bus stop only 5 min walk from the house on stop number 6 located next to the large grocery store 'Devoto' on the Rambla. There are buses every hour to hour and a half getting to from Montevideo.

The neighborhood is calm with friendly neighbors and a small grocery store one block away from the house. The streets are unpaved and the house is located on a dead-end, so there is no traffic noise. We speak English, French and Spanish to answer any questions you may have.

  • Erica and Greg were very responsive and helpful throughout the reservation
    and check in process. Greg even gave us turn by turn directions over the
    phone once we arrived in Piriápolis, which we greatly appreciated because
    our (website hidden) Maps app couldn’t quite get us all the way to the house.

    After checking in, though, we were underwhelmed by the house. So even
    though we had paid for three nights we decided to go back to spend more
    time in Jose Ignacio. The photos here suggest a bright and lovely place to
    stay. Our actual experience did not quite match the photos. First, the
    clean, bright white living room furniture featured in their listing photos
    wasn’t there. Instead the couches had brownish yellow cushions that
    appeared well worn and were not very inviting. And only one of the beds
    was made up, with dark linens that again appeared to be late in their life
    cycle. There were only two of us traveling and we did only need one bed,
    but leaving the other rooms with bare mattresses gave the place a kind of
    incomplete feeling. A handle on the armoire in the master bedroom is
    broken. The hand towel in the bathroom was really just a rag. And another
    threadbare rag was being used as a doormat by the patio entrance. The
    three bikes they provide are kept in the living room / dining room. That
    takes up a lot of space and adds clutter that detracts from the relaxing
    ambiance featured in the listing photos. Then we were shown that the
    locking mechanism on the patio door has a bit of a trick to engage it,
    which was disconcerting, especially since we had just been advised that we
    needed to keep the bicycles inside when we leave the house, which implied
    some concern about potential theft. Given our overall disappointment we
    just decided to consider it a miss and drove back to Jose Ignacio.

    Response from Erica And Greg:

    We’ve received numerous positive reviews from our guests commenting on the
    amenities and attention to details that we provide while staying at our
    house. It is unfortunate that Art and his wife did not feel the same way.
    We still hope that they enjoyed their time in beautiful Uruguay.

  • Meu plano era de viajar para a badalada Punta del Leste. Como tinha reservado um apartamento com Greg & Eica em Montevideo, tive a maior felicidade e surpresa de alugar a casa de praia deles em PIRIAPOLIS.
    Eles nos receberam com braços abertos,como se tivessemos conhecidos há muito tempo. A casa estava muito limpo,completa,gostoso de ficar tanto do lado de fora como de (website hidden) bicicletas,redes,churrasqueira,sombra debaixo de árvores,paz e trnquilidade,perfeito para verão,combinando com a cidade tipicamente uruguaia de Piriapolis,com " CHIMARRÃO" por todos os lados. Greg & Erica nos deram todos as dicas ,com seus livros e mapas e nos deixou um CELULAR para eventuais problemas,o que nos deixou mais tranquilo. Adoramos de tudo, voltaremos mais vezes. Obrigado Greg & Erica.

  • This house was great for our family of five. It is easily accessible by public tranportation from Montevideo and is walking distance from the bus, the grocery store and the beach. We enjoyed having the bicycles to ride into town and the back yard with the grill. It provided us with a nice escape from being in a big city for a few days.

  • Erica and Greg are great hosts. They are quick responders, they keep you updated before you arrive and after you have arrived. They turn up as agreed for arrival and departure, and are very friendly and welcoming.

    The house matches the photoes and the description given completely. It has wonderful beds, good air conditioning in two of the bedrooms and the livingroom, two well-funtioning bathrooms and a well-equippped kitchen (which in my experience is not necessarily so when you rent even if the host says so). For us who like to cook, this was great. Not to mention the big outside B&B area.

    It is only a few minutes' walk to a very nice the beach, and a few blocks from the centre of Piriapolis. With the bicycles also provided at the house, you can move around easily.

    We had a wonderful time in Piriapolis and would definitely recommend both Erica and Greg as hosts and their house if you are heading there. Should we ever return to Piriapolis or Montevideo (they have an apartment for rent there as well) we know who to contact!

  • Erica and Greg bent over backwards by picking us up at the airport at 2;30 a.m. and driving our rental car to the house. After dropping us off, they continued to be in touch for any questions or to share the insider's point of view to really enjoy Piriapolis and the surrounding area. The home itself is very nice and with enough dishes to adequately cook the yummy vegetables and foodstuffs from the saturday Farmer's Market. The bedrooms are very comfortable and the bathrooms are practical and have nice light. The bicycles we will have to use next time! On of my favorite memories will be pulling into the driveway and smelling the eucalyptus, rosemary and lavender in the nearby plantings. Since I also host vacation rental in three properties in Kansas City, it was fun to chat about our shared experiences.

  • Beautiful house in a nice quite location. It is close to the beach and everything that you need. We loved our stay!

    April 2012
  • We stayed in Erica and Greg's house in Piriapolis for 9 days. We had a great time and found the house really comfortable, spacious, bright.and well-equipped. All the rooms were well proportioned and had everything we needed. The house is in a very peaceful location and there is plenty of space to sit out around it, perfect for relaxation. Greg was at the bus stop when we arrived, and he explained everything we needed to know about the house. He and Erica were excellent hosts, able to answer our queries about the area. The children loved the beach and going up to the top of Cerro San Antonio on the precarious-looking chair lifts! The sea was also fairly calm and the sand was clean and just right for sandcastles!

    We would highly recommend the house to others. Thank you Greg and Erica!
