Stayed there for three nights in October 2013. Courteous and very helpful hosts offering tipps for tours and trips, pleasant and clean room, parking space in the drive-up, delicious, fresh breakfast and dinner :-)

Sourced by Cuba Direct for my boyfriend and I, this proved to be the best part of our recent 3-centre Cuba experience. The guest accommodation is charming. You feel part of family and village life, but the separate building (fully self-contained) that we occupied also offered comfort and privacy. We even had our own sun deck on the roof! Lovely... More

Clean, comfortable, quiet and very friendly. Stay and join the family, who run the operation. Could not be more helpful. Would recommend to anyone. Food served under a garden pergola was very good and reasonably priced. Other Casa's nearer the road suffer more traffic noise, which can be annoying. Many thanks Francesco and Annia.

We knew this was going to be great when we pulled up outside the Casa and Francisco came running out of the house to move his car so that we could park ours off the road. That kind of thoughtfulness and consideration characterised our stay. The room is comfortable, the food excellent and the water hot while the beer is... More

We stayed with Any and Francisco for three nights in February 2014. The welcome was great and Any picked us up from our coach. The dogs roaming the streets were a bit of an issue but it was early days for us in Cuba and we got used to having them around us most places. The room, separate from the... More

First visit to Cuba and first stay in a casa. Apprehensive about what to expect but pleasantly surprised. We had a lovely comfortable double en suite room separate from the main house but in courtyard. Plenty of hot water and spotlessly clean, better than many Cuban hotels. Wonderful food served outside. But stars were Ani and Francisco. Lovely hosts, nothing... More

Stayed for three wonderful days in November and thanks to trips organised for us by Anita and Francisco we saw everything we wanted to see. The accommodation is great it has privacy but you still feel like you are staying with the family, meals served in the small courtyard were really good, the red snapper, out of this world. Would...

Twice this year, and I still haven't told everyone what a wonderful place to visit! What reminded me was a conversation with my brother this morning. He is jealous that I'm actually planning a third visit to your precious casa. Both visits were perfect, of course, but I enjoyed my second visit most because my grand-daughters and son accompanied me.... More
