    Description

    I need to leave Uruguay for 2 months, approximately the 6th of March til the 6th of May. It's the gorgeous Autumn in MInas , and I live in the Drumming section of town - so you get a free concert several nights per week . MINAS is a small city/big town , 2 hours by bus ( i hour from the beaches ) outside of MOntevideo. I have excellent wifi, and a hot shower . I have lived in this beautiful country area for 4 years, so can tell you all about the sights that you can see here. The house is 2 and 1/2 bedrooms, 1 bath, with 2 large patios, , and a big kitchen. It is 7 blocks from the downtown , for the big stores, and there are little corner market s 1 blocks away. This is the hiking ( mountainous ) section of the country. Your chores are watering the garden ( and harvest! ) and taking care of 2 large dogs and one cat. Please contact me for more info. Gracias!, Marta

    The dogs would like to go on a walk everyday. if that isnt possible, you can play ball with them within the property , for exercise. Or walk just 3 blocks down to the river and let them swim for exercise, weather permitting. they are BIG local breeds of dogs-Nina Simone is a short haired collie and Zorro is a basque shepherd, and if they cant exercise they will jump on people more, and other naughty behaviors. the cat practically takes care of herself. I normally rent out rooms , i will be blocking that feature off for the time you are here, but if I do get a long term renter before i leave, then you would share the house with him/her. ( it might be better if you get here a few days ahead of time so that i can show you all the places to take the dogs, the idiosyncracies of the house, etc. ). I HAVE A BIG GARDEN NOW, not sure how much of it will be left by then, so it might just be watering of decorative plants. I am computing that the animal care and gardening will use up about 2 hours of your day, each day. the dogs can be left alone ( in seperate rooms ) during the day, so you can go and hike, or whatever , for the day. They do need someone here with them overnight, every night.

    Each of the 2 bedrooms has a double bed. and also a single bed. there are also single beds in the galpon ( garage ) , living room, and on the patios - so lots of places to nap - it can still be hot in March! ( and i like to have lots of places for travellers to sleep, i guess left over from when i ran a hostel? ) The house also has cement fences ( compound ) all around it so is extemely safe.

    nearby are 4 hiking areas, a waterfall, 2 rivers, a lake, 4 history museums, a gold mine, a zip line, a archeology site, a music/art club, meditation center ETC. ( THIS IS A TOURIST AREA, THERE IS PLENTY TO DO - OR NOT DO ! - here ) Minas has LOTS of music going on , of all types ( although the 2 nightclubs are mostly cumbia ) . Uruguay has excellent local and longer haul bus transport available.
