Cary and Nilo are warm and charming and their Casa Particular reflects their personality, with a large salon filled with photos of their children and grandchildren, a passageway lined with beautiful plants, and clean bedrooms and bathrooms. The little fridge held cold water and the beds were made up every day. Breakfast was a heaping plate of fresh fruit, eggs... More

The colonial house is absolutely beautiful, in an excellent condition and immaculately clean. It's in a very convenient location right in the centre of Havana, only 2 blocks from the Malecón! Cary and Nilo are excellent hosts. They really helped us a lot during our stay and know every corner of the city. This is for sure one of the... More

We had a wonderful stay with Cary y Nilo. The casa is beautiful, and it felt like staying as a welcome member of the family. Nothing was too much trouble - Cary even walked us to a wonderful restaurant with her umbrella - because it was raining and was worried we would get lost (we would have done!). Best fruit... More

We loved staying here so much. We stayed with Cary and Nilo when we first arrived in Cuba and again at the end of our trip when we flew out. We were so well fed at breakfast time and looked after. The room was lovely with huge private bathroom and air conditioning and a fridge also which was great, it... More

Staying with Cary and Nilo is more like a homestay than a 'bed & breakfast'. Super quiet for the location. The first night I wanted to stay they were full up, but organised for me to stay in a friend's casa around the corner, then I moved to their casa in the morning. They are the nicest people, and nothing... More

We stayed 3 nights with Cary and Nilo, the owners of the house and then, when we got back to La Habana we decided to stay there other 2. They are extremely lovely, the house is very clean and in a great location: 2 minutes walk from the Malecon and 10 minutes from the Capitolio which means super central! If... More

Cary and Nilo are the lovely innkeepers of this clean and meticulously well-kept colonial house on a very conveniently located street in Centro Havana. The breakfasts are ridiculously large -- a huge heaping plate of delicious fresh fruit for each person and then eggs and toast as well in abundant quantities, all served up with delight. Guests tend to be... More

Hi all. The location of the homestay was ok. Only Nilo was there and he didn't speak any English, which i'm wondering if it would have made a difference to our homestay. The house was immaculate and for the most part Nilo was a gracious host and very polite. Where they are losing points is that they didn't honor our... More

We stayed three nights with Cary an Nilo and very much enjoyed our stay there. The rooms are spacious and clean and Cary and Nilo gave us a warm welcome, prepared a lovely breakfast and arranged a taxi to the airport in the middle of the night. The Casa is very quiet although being in a lively neighbourhood, only a... More

When we arrive, Cary was already waiting us in "loby", she was very happy too see us and it feels like visiting granparents, who haven't see you long time. And that feeling continues every single day we stayd there. She was very helpful and give us plenty of good information about nightlife, cuban safety, restuarants, taxis, etc. Rooms have very...
