My girlfriend and I spent 3 nights staying with Beatriz and her family at the start of August. It is a beautiful casa in a quiet street that is only a 5-10 minute walk to the central square, Heredia Street and the vast majority of the museums and places of interest. The food was superb every night and the breakfast... More

This is a casa to remember! Staying with this lovely Cuban family in this colorful colonial house was a great experience. Nivia is a warm and friendly lady and although she and her husband Roberto only speak little English, they really tried to make us feel at home. If your Spanish is as bad as ours, don't worry: their daughter... More

This is a nice and big house located close to the activity center of Santiago. But what makes it excellent is the nice family who lives there and all the warm attention that Betariz did bring to us. Practically, room was big, clean with window, aircond, bathroom w hot water, even some books to read ... Breakfasts and dinner were... More

We would like to highly recommend this casa particular to anyone who is looking for an authentic experience living with a lovely Cuban family. Beatriz and David are warm hosts and very... More

Beatriz and her family could not have been more accommodating than they where. Not only did she organise our taxi from the very early Viazul bus, (and then have our breakfast ready for us) she organised a lovely man and his jeep to take us places around Santiago but she also made phone calls days later to our next destination...
