We traveled throughout Cuba in November and December 2012 and stayed here for two days. During our two weeks in Cuba we only stayed in Casas, so we became very familiar with them.
The good: location, really nice house, great deck overlooking the street, the food was good (a shot of rum with dinner and ice cream for dessert!), we had the upper floor to ourselves, and the bathroom was excellent (it is so nice to have a big bathroom).
The bad: we never felt really comfortable here, which is very important if you are staying in someone's home and embedded with their family! It seemed at times like we were not wanted and that the hostess (not the husband, he was great) was only having us to make extra money. In fact, at one point she got upset, we were not sure what happened (we are very nice people).
To sum up: excellent accommodations but not a good vibe. Maybe the hostess was going through some personal or a family issue but given that there are Casas EVERYWHERE I would consider staying somewhere else and we were relieved to leave.
