Staying in Elena's house was definitely one of the highlights of my trip. So much so, that I have nicknamed her my Cuban mother. I usually like to stay at 4-5 star hotels when I travel and staying in a Casa in Cuba (though driven by hotel unavailability) was an experience I am now grateful I had. From her hospitality,... More

My husband and I stayed here for 4 nights in February 2014 when we first arrived in Cuba. Before our arrival, Elena requested us to pay 20 euros via Paypal for the room reservation (i.e. 5 euros per each night reserved) - the paid amount was later deducted from our final bill. Elena and Rene's home is beautiful. We especially... More

We stayed at Casa Tarajano for only 3 days and would loved to stay for longer. Elena is very friendly and helpful host and we really felt warmly welcome. We had lunch once and breakfast every morning and food was delicious! Room was spacious and clean and house was easily found with map that Elena sent us.
