About This Listing
SAMBA is one of LAS BOSSAS Beach cabins - a two-floor cabin just metres away from one of the main beaches in Punta del Diablo. Sea views, kitchen, bathroom, WIFI, TV in HD, Alarm, hammocks, deck chairs, BBQ, parking, +from the bed the best sea view!
Samba is a two-floor beach cabin with fantastic views of the ocean from the upstairs deck, you can watch the sunrise from your bed! It is one of 3 cabins built on the same plot called 'Cabañas Las Bossas'.
Upstairs is a spacious bedroom that leads out onto a shaded balcony with hammock and downstairs is an integrated kitchen and living room area with bathroom, wooded deck and BBQ. Its style imitates the original shacks built by fishermen and their families who first inhabited the town but with all the mod cons and creature comforts you need; fully equipped kitchen (oven, microwave, fridge, toaster, juicer, pots, pans, etc), hot pressure shower, your own BBQ, hammocks, sun deck, WIFI, Direct TV with channels in HD in English, Spanish and Portuguese, speakers for ipod, laptops, etc, safety money deposit box, beach gear, fan for if its hot, heater for if you're visiting in winter... ). Sheets and towels are optional. I also have a number of books in english to lend or swap!
The cabin is just a block from the main beach in Punta del Diablo and six blocks from the main town centre, where the bus drops you off in low season. In high season the bus stops only at the bus terminal and you can get a shuttle bus or we will come and pic you up. There is a grocery store a few minutes walk from the cabin and there are also a couple of restaurants only a block or two away.
In Punta del Diablo you can horse-ride, surf, cycle, go fishing, bird-watch, take amazing walks along deserted beaches, spot orcas, turtles, sea-lions or whales if you are lucky, eat yummy freshly caught local fish and sea food or just chill our in your cabin and let life lull by. I also offer yoga classes down on the beach for any yogi or yoginis out there.
There are many places to visit within the local area that we would be happy to help you get to; Santa Teresa National Park, Fort San Miguel, the magical sunset at La Laguna Negra (Black Lagoon), the natural sea-lion reserve at Cabo Polonio, sandboarding in Vallizas, boats trips along the Bosque de Ombues (Ombue Tree Forest)...
Come and enjoy the relaxed vibe of Las Bossas, we look forward to your visit!
*PLEASE NOTE* prices in peak season (Jan-Feb) are double that of low season and from mid December to mid March we are unfortunately unable to take reservations for less than 7 nights, unless we happen to have a gap in the bookings.

The cabins are located close to the Rivero Beach and just a 10 minute walk over the sand dune to Big Beach, one of the most beautiful beaches in Uruguay.

A cabana e a cidade são ótimas, exatamente o que estávamos procurando para o nosso feriado: sossego e calmaria. A "Samba" é exatamente como nas fotos, próxima da praia, do mercado e do centrinho. Tudo no lugar, limpa, e agradável. Um detalhes que ela tem em relação às outras duas: por ser 2 andares, o quarto tem uma vista espetacular! Realmente valeu muito a pena ficar por lá!
Na chegada, um pouquinho difícil de se achar pois as ruas não tem nome, mas logo encontramos e fomos super bem recebidos pela Claudia, enviada por Sara & Leo, que estava nos esperando para mostrar tudo da cabana.
Por fim, altamente recomendado! Obrigado Sara & Leo!

We contacted Sara and Leo when we were in Buenos Aires and Sara replied right away and wished us welcome to Punta del Diablo! She made sure we got there safe and sound and kept in touch with us all the way. We got picked up at the busstop in Punta del Diablo which was very nice since we had heavy luggage with us. First 4 days, we stayed at cabin Bossa, and it was PERFECT for a couple!! The bed was supercomfy, the kitchen has everything you need and the water pressure in the shower is perfect, the whole cabin was very clean and it has everything you need for a perfect day on the beach, which is around a 4 mins walk from the cabins. Then we jumped over to cabin Samba for the last 3 days and it looks even better IRL than in the pictures (hard to believe, I know) its so much space, clean and very cozy! Again, perfect for a couple. We literally sat on our bed and watched the sunrise! So romantic! The cabins get full score from us, this was our second Airbnb place and we couldnt be happier!
We never got the chance to meet Sara and Leo, but Sara is seriously a better version of Google! She replies super fast, gave us the best reccomendations on resturants and things to do in Punta del Diablo and she makes sure you're having the best time ever! We would rent this cabin(s) again for sure! Thank you so much guys!
A casa é ótima e o lugar é lindo. Nosso único problema foi na chegada, onde ficamos andando pela cidade por por duas horas enquanto ninguém atendia os celulares dos números que nos passaram. Pudemos entrar na casa pela ajuda de um senhor de outra pousada que conseguiu falar com algumas pessoas e nos trouxeram as chaves. Graças a ajuda dele, mas isso já passava das 20:30 min.
Our stay at Samba was better than anything we expected! The cabin was absolutely perfect: fully stocked with everything we needed to cook breakfast, great vistas of the Atlantic ocean, beach mats for afternoons in the sun, and an incredibly comfortable hammock on the upstairs balcony. Not to mention the convenient location, close to two beaches, a great grocery, restaurants, and more. Sara and Leo were fantastic hosts, very friendly and super accommodating. We *definitely* recommend Las Bossas to anyone visiting Punta del Diablo.
Sara and Leo were terrific hosts! They went above and beyond to make sure we were comfortable and that all our needs were met! The cabin has a beautiful view of the ocean and we loved waking up to the sound of waves! We stayed during low season, so it was quiet and serene - just what we were looking for! The beaches (Playa del Rivero and Playa Grande) were pristine and breathtaking! Everything in the listing and pictures was as we expected. Overall we would recommend anyone to stay here and rest assured you would be in great hands with Sara and Leo! We hope to visit them again one day soon!
We loved our stay at Samba. You will not be disappointed with the cabin; it's lovely, very comfortable and has everything you need including all those little details like candles, beach games, extra pillows... plus, what a view right from your bed! Sara picked us up and dropped us off at the bus station, and she and Leo looked after us really well throughout our stay. We had intended to stay for two nights, and stayed an extra, with Sara going that extra mile to help us find accommodation at our next destination. We couldn't have asked for better hosts or accommodation and would have stayed longer if we could! Thank you Sara and Leo.

About the Host, Sara & Leo
Leo is from Uruguay, a pure gemini who loves surfing, photography and gadgets. As a kid his parents took him on holiday to Punta del Diablo many times. Sara is from the UK and met Leo over 10 years ago in Barcelona where they both lived until last year. She loves the outdoors, yoga and veggie food and was easily convinced to go and live in Punta del Diablo. Together they have travelled to many wonderful places such as Indonesia, China, Morocco, Thailand, Peru... and try to help and accommodate their guests as they like to be treated themselves - chilled vibes in a safe environment, plenty of tips and local know-how, if you want to just hang out on your hammock all day that's cool but if you're up for a BBQ we are always at the ready ;-)
