About this listing
Wooden, airey cabana with curvey crinkly tin roof and fireplace and lovely garden in walking distance of beach and pueblo.
Architect designed double height timber house with a curved crinkly tin roof, open fire, one double bedroom and a mezzanine which can sleep two. There is a main living space with kitchen, dining and living area which you enter from the front deck where there is the parilla - the traditional BBQ area. Much of the furniture in the house is designed by a local artisan with the sofa made of twisted acacia branches.
The house is a 10-15 minute walk from the centre of town and a similar distance from 3 of the 4 main beaches in the town. The nearest corner store is a 5 - 10 minute walk.
The house is perfect for a romantic getaway but can also accommodate a family of 4.
The bus terminal is a 20 minute walk out of town. This is where the buses stop from December to Easter. The rest of the time the nearest bus stop is a 10 minute walk to the main road.
Guests have access to all parts of the house.
I am an English architect who gave up the London life 5 years ago to come travelling in South America. One thing led to another and I ended up in Punta del Diablo on the coast of Uruguay. Previously I had travelled a large proportion of the world with South America being my last and in a way final continent.
I have designed and built my own houses and I am now trying to establish a garden in the challenging sand and sea climate. In addition to renting out my house I also make postcards of my photos, design t-shirts and organise horse riding on the beach here in Punta del Diablo. One day I will get on with painting and silver jewellery making but the manana culture somehow slows these things down! That's my excuse anyway!
I can help you with your travel plans for Uruguay and Argentina and other South American countries as well as how to make the most out of your time in Punta del Diablo.I can advise you on what to see in addition to our fantastic beaches, where to eat, drink and have fun as well as assisting in arranging activities such as horse riding, surfing, yoga, zumba, massage and Spanish classes. If you have any other interests I can try and see what can be organsied.
