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...

Lovely family, nice accommodation Definitely high recommendation! Family is very kind, rooms are clean and beautiful. You will get a wonderful experience staying in this Cuban family. The location is very good, near restaurants and walking distance of old town. And of course the breakfast - it was awesome :)

We stayed with Cary and Nilo for 4 nights at the beginning of our trip in Cuba. Cary and Nilo were so hospitable and lovable. A Beautiful colonial-style casa, spotlessly clean and very comfy. Bedrooms and bathrooms are cleaned every day. The location of the casa is also perfect - just a short stroll to Malecon and about 15-20 minutes... More

This was the first casa particular we rented, the first time in Cuba. What a pleasant surprise and no doubt the best casa particular we had compared to the other ones on our trip. It`s clean, private, air-conditioned, which is a must in Havana, and the owners are welcoming, friendly and warm-hearted. There was an honesty about the place although... More

The casa is cosy, clean and more importantly it is in the Central Havana, a short walk to Old Havana and the restaurants. But it was kindness of Cary and Nilo which touched us most. Starting with their assistances made our entire month long Cuba trip unforgettable and wonderful. We agree with Terry’s comment that Cary can be best describes... More

I can best describe Cary as being like a favourite aunt, who treats you like you are her favourite nephew. What a beautiful personality-she's a gem. My favourite Cuban. Their Casa is also a beautiful, clean oasis in a not-so-clean-or-beautiful Central Havana. It's in an excellent location--a short walk to excellent restaurants, the Malecon, and Old Havana. I would never... More

I definitely recommend a stay here - it is such a friendly, welcoming and comfortable place. Cary and Nilo were about the kindest people we met on our 6 month trip and their home is lovely - very comfy and spotlessly clean. These are people who will do everything they can to make your stay in Havana fantastic (they even... More
