The space

Private suite with a den and use of most of the rest of the house in modern, tastefully decorated and fully renovated home in very good residential neighborhood surrounded by gardens, lakes and trees (Parque Miramar). 8 minutes to Carrasco Airport.


The suite:
Your suite consists of a studio/office, a bedroom and a full bathroom. It becomes isolated from the rest of the house by closing two doors.


Your air-conditioned/heated studio/office has a desk, a comfortable chair, a large bookcase, good natural light, and a closet. The window overlooks the garden.


Your air-conditioned/heated bedroom has a very comfortable bed that easily accommodates two. There is a good-sized closet. Again, the window overlooks the garden.


Your bathroom is large, with a sink, a toilet and a bidet and a shower/tub so you can take relaxing bubble baths, lit by candles and enjoying a glass of wine. There is plenty of storage space.


These three rooms are connected by a hall which can be closed most of the time, giving you all the privacy you desire.

The house:
You will have access to most of the rest of the house:

•the garden that surrounds the house, where you can hang a hammock and read or sleep your “siesta”

•the air conditioned/heated den with comfortable chairs and good lighting, a fireplace, a large TV and video player, a CD player and a large window that allows you to access to the garden directly

•the air conditioned/heated beautiful and fully equipped kitchen (large refrigerator/freezer, microwave, toaster oven, stove with regular size oven, coffee grinder and coffee maker, blender, juicer, pots, pans, wok, any utensil you may need, etc.); you can cook to your heart’s delight.

•the kitchen eating area, with an immense french door that opens up to the patio

•the wonderful patio with a sitting area and a huge umbrella, a very large table with chairs to enjoy al fresco dinners, trees, a grassy area and two barbeques, a practical and quick gas one, and a traditional wood or coal one.


Amenities:
We offer free WI-FI that you can use anywhere in the house, Direct TV cable with many US channels, as well as channels from many other parts of the world, UNLIMITED FREE PHONE CALLS TO THE USA and most countries in the world from our especial telephone service. There is a washer and dryer available free of charge.

Your suite, as well as the rest of the house, will be cleaned by a professional cleaning lady once a week, free of charge. Sheets and towels are provided.

The neighborhood:
Parque Miramar is adjacent to Carrasco and close to the airport (there is no noise because the planes fly in and out using a different direction). There are immense and beautiful trees and many lakes. It is outside of Montevideo, though the city limit is less than a mile away. The area is safe and quiet, yet has easy access to the beach, the supermarket, restaurants, shopping centers, movies, etc. There is a small, very complete and pretty neighborhood complex which includes a small supermarket, a pharmacy, two great restaurants, a sushi place, a beer place and an ice cream place. And recently a "fancy" restaurant was added, only a block and a half away from the house.


Public transportation is 3 blocks away, and it can take you to the east (the airport, Punta del Este and other destinations) as well as to Carrasco (with its many restaurants, boutiques, etc.) and further on to Pocitos (20 min) and downtown Montevideo (30 min). You can check the bus timetable in the computer so you don't have to wait; they go by very often.


The best beaches of Montevideo are less than two miles away, and can be reached by bicycle or by foot. Two auto-rentals are situated within 3 blocks of the house.


You will be very close to Interbalnearia, the highway that takes you to the beautiful beaches of Punta del Este. La Paloma, La Pedrera, etc. Buses directly to Punta del Este, Minas, Rocha and other destinations will pick you up 3 blocks from our house.


Your hosts
We have one loving, easy-going dog (and occasionally another one that comes to visit) to keep you company and welcome you to your home away from home. The landlady is a native Uruguayan who speaks fluent English and passable French if you speak slowly. She has lived in Venezuela and California for many years and traveled around the world.


Her intention is to make your stay in Uruguay as easy and pleasant as possible, and will be happy to assist you with directions, information, maps, etc. She looks forward to hosting you in Uruguay and making you feel at home.

Selene was an ideal host, going out of her way to accommodate our 2 am arrival, bus scheduling needs, and early departure. Her house is an oasis - calm, comfortable, and a mere 8 minutes from the airport.

Gracias mil Madeline. Fue un placer tenerlos y aquí estoy, esperándolos a que regresen. Y en cualquier momento me hago un paseo por Buenos Aires y tengo el placer de tomarme un café con ustedes - o un vinito. Espero que lo hayan pasado lindo en la playa. Me encantó conocerlos y aprecio MUCHO el lindo review y la paciencia para con las "dificultados". Un abrazo a los dos y hasta pronto.

Selene's home might be described in her personality: bright, light, beautiful and warm! We felt such peace and quiet at a time when we sorely needed rest after a long flight. She was gracious and generous, opening her kitchen to us so we could cook a couple of simple meals. Very …

Selene went beyond what could have been expected from a host. She was very kind and understanding and helped us learn about Uruguay. We speak very little spanish and Selene's bilingual skills were a great help. She has arranged her home so her guests can be very comfortable. …
