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

We spent two very happy nights here at the end of our travels around Cuba last weekend. We can confidently recommend this casa - it is by far the best we stayed in or saw. The accommodation is immaculately clean, stylish and our en-suite shower room was tiled in white and provided reliably warm showers. The accommodation is quiet yet... More

We were a group of 5 from Australia. The casa was clean and we felt truly at home. Nilo & Carey are warm, kind and caring . so much like parents that My husband called Nilo "pops" and Carey "mama"! The casa is located near the malecon in an authentic Cuban neighborhood. There are several family restaurants next door and... More

If you are considering staying in a casa particular in Havana, look no further than Cary and Nilo. They are the most welcoming and caring hosts. Always helpful. Keep a clean household. Cook a delicious breakfast and really take care of their guests. I would definitely go back. Marvellous! The casa particular is situated near the Malecon, which is perfect... More

We stayed at Cary y Nilo's for several nights. In our view, the best casa in Cuba! The Casa is located in Habana Centro, 3min to the Malecon and about 15min walking distance from Habana Vieja. All the rooms are very clean and furnished charmingly. Breakfast is delicious with mountains of fresh fruit, eggs, bread and the best coffee in... More

Your hosts are Cary and Nilo. Cary is like a mother hen. Though she doesn't speak a lot of English she really tries to make you feel at home. The place is scrupulously clean. Nilo makes a huge breakfast and is always smiling. Cary will help you make an itinerary for visiting other places in Cuba and arrange for you... More
