Parque Rodó is a great neighbourhood. It's centric, but not too urban. The gorgeous Rodó Park is just 4 blocks from the apartment, you can go walk and enjoy the beautiful views. If you want to see the coast, you can just pass through the park and you're in the Ramirez beach. There's a lot of restaurants, cafes, pubs and discos nearby, so if you want to experience the night, you'll have no trouble walking back home.
Other Things to Note
No smoking allowed inside the apartment, but you can smoke in the terrace (plenty of space!)
In addition, I can arrange a car rental for you in a rental company that's 2 blocks away form the house, and with good rates. Just let me know!
- Please DO NOT SMOKE inside the house. If you need to smoke, you have the terrace upstairs.
- We have neighbors, so please mind them and don’t get too noisy after 10pm, specially on week days.
- The only people allowed to be in the house is the people we arranged reservation with. It’s a little obvious, but you’re not supposed to throw a party during your stay.
- Pets are not accepted
- As a general rule, don’t do anything you wouldn’t do in your own house.
We had a fabulous month in Uruguay and Jose and his apartment contributed greatly to our experience. First, the apartment - it is just as pictured: kinda small, really cute, clean, functional, and convenient to pretty much everything! The kitchen is small but we cooked dinner there about 70% of our nights and had no trouble. There is a good supply of pots, pans, dishes, some spices - very workable. The shower has good hot water. The bed is comfortable. Bus stops are two short blocks away so no car is needed in the city. The river is about 6 blocks away and a really pleasant walk. We recommend this place as a great base to explore Montevideo!
Now, about Jose! He gets an exclamation mark! He always responded immediately whenever we needed anything. He helped us rent a car for a weeklong adventure to the Atlantic beaches. We highly recommend Jose as a host!
La experiencia que tuvimos en la casa de josé fue impecable. El fue muy atento con todo y buenísima onda. Totalmente agradecido.
Loved this cool space in Montevideo. The neighbourhood is so cool. Only a short walk to the beach, beautiful parks + a sweet little amusement park on the water. The area is full of bars, restaraunts + cafes. The apartment is clean with cool decorations from Jose's travels. Jose was an awesome host. He met us right on time + gave us a ton of great tips for exploring the area. One teeny, tiny downside was that the bedroom is a bit noisy as it fronts onto the street. It's not super loud, but cars driving by woke us up fairly early - though the black out curtains helped!
Jose s apartment is located on a very beautiful and calm place of montevideo.
The house is equipped with everything that I needed.
Also ,the terrace is beautiful and a nice place for a morning coffee .
I met Jose and he s a very interesting guy.
Absolutely highly recommended
We stayed with our 3 month old baby in Jose's apartment for five nights. The apartment is in a convenient, generally quiet area, although the street that it is on is quite loud and inhibits being able to open the windows that face the street. As others have said, however, the roof-top patio is very peaceful
The apartment is how it appears in the pictures and is described on the site - we felt it was well-equipped, including for cooking, which we did on several occassions. The internet was quite good.
Jose met us at the apartment and provided excellent communication throughout.
