About the property

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths (Sleeps 6)

This cottage is called 'Los Limoneros' and is part of five available at 'Granja Henderson', an 111 acre farm in the heart of punta del este.

See 'links to more information' below to see YouTube video and Google map of the cottage.

Los limoneros has 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, kitchen-dining-living rooms all integrated and outside a lovely porch to lounge on and a carport and Parrillero. The garden is ample with fruit trees, hence the name.

93.6 sqm = 1008 sqft

Master bedroom downstairs with 1 queen size bed.

Master bathroom downstairs by the master bedroom.

Bedroom #2 upstairs with two single beds.

Bedroom #3 upstairs with two single beds.

Bathroom #1 is downstairs by living room.

This cottage has recently been fitted with a magna wood fireplace. It heats up the entire house and is a joy to stay during the cold months on the southern winter! It faces the living room but has an intricate hot air plumbing that blows warm air into the master bedroom and upstairs.

Every guest staying at Granja Henderson has complementary access to all the vegetables that are grown on site at the organic vegetable garden!

Wildlife is abundant here. It is amazing to be so close to Punta and be able to enjoy mother nature at its fullest without the noises, people, traffic, pollution associated with city life. Here is a list of some wildlife that surrounds the granja henderson:

Lots of birds (chaja, tero teru, hornero, swans, benteveo, pirincho, picaflor, cotorra, golondrina, halconcito, gorrion, cuervillo, sabia, ratonera, picabuey, garza, calandria, carancho, carpintero, cisne, cuervo, viudita, paloma, tordo, zorzal, chimango, chingolo, churrinche, murcielago, picapalo, golondrinas, tijereta, gallineta),

Zorro, nutria, mulita, aperia, huron, liebre, zorillo, comadreja, guazu, aperea.

About granja henderson:

This was my mother's patch. Her childhood farm. Her parents acquired it in 1942. The place she grew up on. Where her whole family spent their holidays and weekends. Second home and until recently first one too! Originally a chicken farm, later a dairy, then a quarter horse breeding facility. Now rental of cottages.

A little about Laguna del Diario: this lagoon is called thus because the horses that were used a great deal or on a daily basis for the garrison (colonial times) were allowed loose on the fields around the lake. The Sierra de la Ballena was hostile and they didn't climb up over it. So the daily horses were to be fetched from there. This is the translation for Diario. A Diario means on a daily basis. No meaning of newspaper fits this place name. All places in the countryside in Uruguay that are a dead end are named Rincón. Thus the area where my grandfather's farm was, was called Rincón del Diario. It is in disuse now, as another road has been built to access the area.

Why Owner/Property Manager chose Maldonado

The Granja was my mother's patch. Her childhood farm. Her parents acquired it in 1942. 111 Acres of pristine farmland. It's the place she grew up on. Where her whole family spent their holidays and weekends. Second home and until recently first one too. Originally a chicken farm, later a dairy, then a Quarter Horse breeding facility. Now rental of cottages.

Guestbook comments from the manager

I wanted to give a review of Granja Henderson. This is an amazing place to visit. We recently had a group of twenty-six there in four of the houses. There was plenty of room for everyone. It is so quiet and peaceful there. Guillermo and his wife Yanet were wonderful. They went above and beyond to keep us comfortable. It is in a fantastic location next to beautiful beaches and five minutes to the famous resort town of Punta del Este. We certainly look forward to returning.

Muy agradable

  • 5 of 5

Compartimos el fin de semana en familia en "Los Limoneros". Todos regresamos a casa con la idea de que debíamos repetir la experiencia.

La tranquilidad del entorno, el trato amigable y respetuoso de quienes están a cargo y el estar a un paso de la movida de Punta del Este lo transforman en un lugar ideal.

En un mismo día se puede disfrutar de la naturaleza, consumo de productos elaborados en la propia granja y visita a algunos de los tantos lugares turísticos de la zona. Si por el contrario el ánimo es desconectarse totalmente éste también resulta el lugar perfecto.

Muy recomendable!

Gracias, Adriana y familia.

An excellent location on a charmingly well manicured working farm in the green Uruguayan Coastline.

  • 5 of 5

I enjoyed my stay at Granja was spectacular! The online youtube and photos do not do justice to the beautiful property that is gated into the Uruguayan Coastline.

As a property owner myself, i feel obligated to tell you what a wonderful job that the husband and wife caretakers do to keep the entire ranch looking beautiful! It is remarkable what they do to keep everything pristine, so much so I tipped them for all that they did to make our stay so pleasant.

The buildings on the property were once a family compound, so the charm and feel of yesteryear is definitely present. Great location for a group getaway and well positioned to get to Punta in 15 minutes or the airport in 5. Excellent location and beautiful scenery!

Thanks again for a wonderful stay, we loved it!
