I've visited Cuba with my friend Katarina for first time and we loved everything about our stay in Isis and Juani house. The host was incredible and made you feel like part of their family. Just for an image - we first planned to stay in Isis house for 1 night only, but ended up staying for 6 nights. When we're back in Cuba someday, definenetely want to visit Isis and Juani again.
We are two belgian girls who spend our first 3 nights in Cuba with Isis. She made us feel so welcome and reminded us of our mothers because she always wanted us to feel loved. She can make breakfast and dinner like a real chef. The appartment was spacious with a fan and a little kitchen as well. But we preferred the food from Isis instead of cooking ourselves. If you want to visit Varadero you can take the bus (10minutes). Isis speaks very good English and she arranged our next casa and transport to go to our next stop in Cuba.
I think this is the most important thing during traveling in Cuba. They were very nice, helpful and great english speakers. They helped us to find the best place to visit in neighbourhood, and choose the best transport for our staying in this part of Cuba(rent scooters). Organization of taxi to the airport was not a problem and on time. They answered all of questions which we had about Cuba, problems with organization of something and so on. "Casa" is situated on small city close to Varadero. But, there you can taste real cuban live without tourists. There is everything what you need: shop, coffee shop, ice cream shop, beach (3 min from Casa), bakery. I really recommend this Casa, great hosts and Boca de Camarioca!
We stayed at Isis and Juani’s Casa this January. If you want to We experience true local Cuban living and culture this is the place to stay at, you won’t be disappointed. The apartment is independent of the house so you have privacy and freedom to access your apartment without disturbing anyone or feeling intrusive. The photos on the various booking and review sites are a true exact reflection of the rooms, outside relaxing area and amenities provided. We stayed on the top floor which is actually a complete apartment that comes with an extra single bed making it ideal for a couple or small family equipped with a full-size fridge and stove microwave and all the trimmings right down to china, wine glasses and cutlery, while we did not need to cook the full-size fridge and microwave is a bonus. This is a perfect place to unwind than the more touristy section of Varadero, the local beach is actually a 5-minute walk and you can still have access to the main Varadero beaches via a 20-minute bus ride if you so desire and for a lot less than you would have to pay at a location located in Varadero. Isis is very fluent in English and so are her son David and her son in law. Breakfast and dinner can be ordered 24 hours in advance at very reasonable prices, Juani who is a retired barman makes an excellent cocktail that we had with dinner. We do highly recommend Isis and Juani Casa for a truly local and authentic stay in Boca de Camarioca. Muchas Gracias and regards to you Isis, and Juani…
helpful and hospitable owners, giving excellent and helpful advice to spend time in Varadero and the surrounding area :) They made sure to make us feel welcome. They helped us organize taxi for airport. The location is a 5 minute walk to the beach and nearby a great restaurant.
