The SpaceDOUBLE ROOM
Nice, Spacious and Sunny apartment in a great location, Barrio Sur, just 1 block from the seaside.
On the upper floor, one big spacious bedroom with a double bed, and a smaller room with a single bed, both with AC and big windows overlooking the patio (both with black out curtains in case it's too sunny in the morning time). New, comfy beds and mattresses, which is essential after a long day sightseeing. Clean sheets and towels are provided. Both rooms have wardrobes and dressers so you don't have to keep your clothes inside your backpack :)
The bathroom has a shower with hot water all day long.
On the ground floor, big living area with a sofa bed. Integrated kitchen with a real oven and stove, and a big fridge and freezer.
It also has a private patio which provides loads of sunlight, with comfy beach chairs to sunbathe and table to have a lovely brunch al fresco. There's loads of plants and clothesline to hang everything under the sun.
The house has air conditioning in every room, Internet with wifi, and all appliances and furniture to have a great stay, including oven, stove, juicer, microwave, freezer, fridge, toaster, iron, coffeemaker, and all cooking utensils so you can prepare your own meals, hairdryer, washing machine, etc. There´s deliberately no TV but we do have a nice collection of DVDs and vinyls
Tea and instant coffee are available at any time of day, and there's space in the cupboard and fridge for our guests' stuff.
It’s located in very quiet building in the downtown area, 1 block from the sea (great for sunset watching). It’s close to universities, museums, cinemas, just minutes from the Old City, surrounded by restaurants, theaters, street markets, drugstores, laundromats, stores, etc.
Easy transportation to and from anywhere (bus tickets are 1 dollar). Parking at the door is free.
The apartment is cleaned once a week (no cost) and the towels/sheets/linens will be changed. Extra cleaning service can be arranged for a small fee.
We’ve been hosting for over 10 years now and we truly enjoy it. I will be happy to give you loads of tips for your stay, recommendations on events, shows, football games, places to eat, etc. You’ll also have a map, a local mobile phone and a guide for you on arrival.
We have AC in all rooms, we use it a lot in summer and winter. But we want to keep our house as energy-efficient as possible, so we would like you to turn it on only when you're there. We will check the meter on your arrival, and then again when you leave. If you turn the AC off when you're not in the room, there won't be any problem. Guest AccessAll common areas Interaction with Guestsas much as they wish The NeighborhoodBarrio Sur is super unique, you can find plenty of cultural stuff to do (Candombe every day), places to dance tango, 2 very popular pubs, and very friendly neighbours. It's one of the few places in Montevideo where children still play football in the street. Plus, it's just metres from the sea!
Barrio Sur has been through a lot of change lately! Famous for being the cradle of Candombe, our national music, it used to have a really bad rep until around 5 years ago where it became the new up-and-coming area for young people to live. It's full of life, charm, and things to do, but it keeps the "old neighborhood" vibe still. Meaning, I know all my neighbors by name :) Getting Aroundloads of buses to go anywhere. Not that you need them, it's close to everything. And you can always get a bike for free :) Other Things to NoteWe have two very well behaved (actually trained!) pups who will have as much contact with you as you feel confortable with. They are not allowed in the rooms nor the kitchen.
