We have stayed at this place for more than a week as a couple. Before we decide, we checked around and saw many different places. this is indeed one of the best colonial house in Trinidad. Beautiful garden, excellent breakfast. Rooms were very clean. of course one shouldnt expect a luxury hotel standards here. so no english speaking people. but... More

Yaquelin and her family are nice but there were a number of things we were not happy with during our stay. Firstly, Yaquelin is building a second storey and did not have the courtesy to warn us about the early morning noise. We woke up to the sound of bricks being dropped directly above our room. Secondly, the bathroom was... More

Greetings from austria to yaquelin and the whole family - we had a great time in trinidad. She was very nice and we had really fun with her. The breakfast was perfect - fresh fruits, omelet, coffee, fruit shake, ... Thanks for the nice hospitality. We'll come back if we ever come to cuba again :)

When arrived we found very that the bathrooms have no toilet seats, no soap, no toilet paper(!) and when we asked , as they just finished cleaning thinking they might have forgotten, we were told by Yaquelin that there is no soap as it is expensive, and gave one toilet roll to...

We stayed two nights in Trinidad and really felt at home at Yaquelin. There are two independent rooms with their own bathrooms. The room was a little bit uncomfortable, but really spacious and absolutly clean, as well as the bathroom. Unfortunately we didn`t sleep very well because of the rooster next door. Don`t forget the earplugs ;-) But this is... More

The house is great and I especially like the garden, very relaxing place to chill after a long day at beach or for nice breakfasts. Quality of food was very good also, always enjoyed the breakfasts (even got pancakes). Its... More

Having stayed at Yaquelin's Casa on two occasions during my 44 days in Cuba, this family home ticked all the boxes and more. With nowhere to stay upon arrival in trinidad my friend and i were fortunate enough to have stumbled on Yaqueline's Casa. This grand colonial house is a quintessential example of superb Trinidadian accomadation. The high ceilings in... More

We stayed in this beautiful casa particular and we couldn't have a better time. Yaquelin and her family are so friendly and they made us feel like home. The location is superb in the old city and very close to the main plaza and all bars and restaurants. If you stay in this casa treat yourself to a homemade ice... More

We visited Cuba on our honeymoon and spent a few nights at Yaquilne's casa. It was such a lovely difference to all the other places we stayed in Cuba - really hospitable, beautifull garden and best food in the whole of Cuba. Hugely exceeded our expectations. Rooms were clean and tidy and had air conditioning. Couldn't ask for anything better.... More

Beautiful big courtyard garden and very well kept and nicely decorated large rooms and bathrooms. Aircon, hot and cold water. Dinner was plentiful and tasty with different options every day. The owners are very warm and welcoming and will help organise trips in the area, etc.
