About this listing
Our quaint two bedroom, and very private (gated), wooden beach cottage is securely nestled within tropical plantings and located directly across the street from the ocean.
Casa Desdi is a private gated oasis in the resort town of La Paloma, Uruguay. Walk across the road and enjoy one of South America's best beaches. Quaint wood frame main house has kitchen/sitting area with fireplace and full size futon, a master bedroom with full size bed, second bedroom with bunk beds, a full bath with bidet, and very large combined dining / sitting area with a second full size futon. The grounds around the main house has beautiful tropical landscaping, a shaded carport, shaded sitting areas and a large covered Parrillero for grilling with an oversized picnic table and outside sink. A perfect place for lazy day relaxing in hammocks and late night entertaining. A few minutes drive brings you into the seaside town center with a great mix of restaurants, shops, and delicious homemade 'dulce de leche' ice cream. La Paloma also has all the conveniences of small supermercados, banks, money exchange, gas station, emergency medical clinic, bakeries, fruit/vegetable stands, fresh fish markets, and meat carnicerias selling every imaginable cut of beef, pork, lamb, and poultry.
Enjoy multiple day trips to the quaint seaside resort towns of lively La Pedrera with its beautiful beach and local crafts, the dunes and sea lions of Cabo Polonia, Punta Diablo, a fishing village turned resort, Chuy, the commercial border town with Brazil and the recent chic booming town of Jose Ignacio, and the ultimate, Punta del Este, the riviera of South America, where the rich and famous play in the summer sun.
Before your trip to La Paloma, spend a few days in the capital city of Montevideo or neighboring Buenos Aires, Argentina. La Paloma is accessible from Montevideo via Public Bus transit, or by Rental Car.
