AMAZING! The traditional Vedado house is absolutely beautiful and in the perfect location. I could not get enough of their garden and the beautiful tiles. It's not only clean, I felt like I was in a 5 starts hotel. Our room was gorgeous, so tasteful and confortable and way above our expectations and the level of rooms we saw around... More

We stayed here for one night at the end of our Cuba trip and were made to feel extremely welcome from the outset. Although Onelia and her husband can only speak Spanish, their son is fluent in French which did enable us to communicate more freely with the family than we might otherwise have been able to. That said, if... More

Thanks to Onélia and Cholo we really enjoyed our stay in La Havana. Everything was perfect, from the welcoming to hosts, to the beautiful colonial house, super clean room, private bathroom and delicious food. Plus you can enjoy the quietness of the Vedado neighborhood. What else :)

We had a very comfortable stay here at the start of our Cuba trip, with a really comfortable room in the quiet, clean house. The bathroom was lovely, the best that we had in Cuba. Onelia was very helpful, and her cooking was great. The only reason that we opted not to return to Onelia's at the end of our... More

We arrived during the night at their home. We immediately felt as if we were at home. These hosts are simply wonderful. So happy to receive you and they are always open to give you some information on Habana and the country Cholo was so sweet with us and Onelia was like our cuban mother, preparing some very good meals...

Onelia and Cholo are wonderful. Besides the beautiful house with its little garden and patio and beautiful tiles and stained glass windows, there is this lovely and lively couple. They gave us good advise but also, which I consider more important even, they were real people and let us meet them without guard, so we had many very interesting talks,... More

Staying at Casa Onelia was such a wonderful experience and allowed me to feel entirely welcome on my trip to Cuba. Onelia and her husband Cholo were such warm, friendly hosts, and helped me in so many ways in navigating around Cuba by myself. Their house is perfectly located in Nuevo Vedado on a quiet street, and I felt so... More
