Perfect casa after our arrival on Cuba. Nice clean rooms, lovely breakfast and great people. You will feel confortable from the moment you arrive. Got some great tips to travel to from Idael. Recommend.

The owners were SUPER NICE, gave us a Wellcome Mojito upon arrival! They even offered me a free parking garage! Too bad we only stayed for a day. I'd recommend at least 2 days for Matanza as we did everything in a flash... And there's lots to see! Idael te mando un saludo del Gaucho Chino de Argentina!!!

I can't recommend this casa highly enough! Idael and Dania really went out of their way to accommodate us. From storing our bike boxes, making room to build the bikes and driving us where we needed to go; it was a great start and end to our trip. The meals were delicious and the atmosphere was very welcoming. I would... More

Idael and Dania were our favourite hosts in Cuba, they are incredibly welcoming and friendly and went out of their way to ensure that we enjoyed our stay. We had great fun riding in Idael's vintage car and Dania's cooking is great! One thing to improve the experience for guests further would be more comfortable matresses but this didn't stop... More

This is a very nice casa with excellent food! One of the best casas we stayed in. Idael y Dania are incredibly nice and friendly and very hard working people.

I want to echo the sentiments of all the positive reviews here, and add a few things. Definitely eat dinner and breakfast at the casa. Everyone says the food in Cuba is bland but this isn't true when made with love in a casa. All the meals I had here were amazing and such a giant spread of food I... More

We stayed at this casa at the start and end of our holiday. It was very conveniently located to the Varadero airport and the city of Matanzas was one of our favourite places in Cuba - the people were very friendly and it is not a tourist trap. The sounds of the street are like music with children playing, people... More
