About our home

There is nothing but sand between you and the ocean. This property is in the UNESCO Biosphere Reserve and Uruguayan National System of Protected Areas (SNAP). We sit high atop the natural sand dunes within walking distance to both the Atlantic Ocean & Laguna de Rocha. It is divine and unique. Our home is located 220 meters from the Atlantic Ocean and about the same from Laguna de Rocha a 72 sq km freshwater lagoon. The home is 1,500 sq ft (139 sq meters) on two levels. There is also a 300+ sq ft outdoor living space with a view of the ocean and the lighthouse in La Paloma, a great outdoor shower, and an outdoor cooking area. The beach is spectacular, wild and isolated with only the occasional surfer, fisherman and beachcomber - most days you will see only birds. Both the ocean and lagoon afford the opportunity to swim, surf, windsurf, kiteboard, kayak, fish, spearfish, bird watch and beachcomb. Groceries, restaurants, beaches with life guards (and our house managers if you need anything!) are about 7 kilometers away in the beach town of La Paloma.

Where is it?


You will arrive by driving down a dirt road lined by tall eucalyptus trees, ranches and wild horses. We are 5 miles from the bus station. Groceries, restaurants, bakeries, grilled chicken, beaches with life guards (and our house managers if you need anything!) are about 5 miles away in the beach town of La Paloma. La Pedrera with amazing restaurants is also 5 miles away. See the oldest visible rocks on the Earth at the beach. The house is in a secluded area with a string of wonderful towns to visit (don't miss Cabo Polonio) all the way up the coast to Brazil. Do not miss Jose Ignacio and Garzon. Ninety minutes from the larger resort town of Punta del Este, 4 hours from the big city of Montevideo and the airport.
