How do I find a place to live in Punta del Este?

We asked expats how they chose their neighborhood and found a place to live. They answered:

"Looked for an area with natural beauty, reasonable taxes, and slightly off the beaten path....," explained one expat living in Punta Del Este, Uruguay.

"We searched Punta del Este from one side to the other. We decided that we wanted to live in Punta for 6 months a year or longer and that meant a house versus an apartment since many of the apartment buildings are unoccupied 8 months of the year. We also decided that we would build a house as opposed to finding one. We wanted bigger rooms, more bathrooms and fewer bedrooms than is conventional. The difference being that we were not looking to rent the house," said another person in Punta del Este.
