“Beautiful casa, lovely family, great food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 28, 2013

My boyfriend and I stayed here for two nights and it was one of our best casa experiences. The house was nicely decorated and furnished. Our room had a rustic feel to it and it was very clean with a private bathroom. There is a small courtyard with chairs and a hammock to relax in the evenings. After staying right beside a busy street in Havana, having a quiet place to sleep was amazing. The food was amazing and it was very well presented. We had one of the best meals here. This casa is also very centrally located to the main attractions-everything was in walking distance. Johan was always gracious in offering advice and the family was wonderful.

During our 3 weeks stay in Cuba this was the best casa with the best food and the nicest hosts!

The casa is close to the center of Trinidad, but at the same time quiet for a good night's sleep. The house has a lovely garden where you can sit and relax from the sightseeing. In the evening you can use the chance to talk to Johan and his familiy and learn more about Cuba.

The rooms are very clean and have a wonderful atmosphere. The shower is big and has good water pressure (that's not always the case in Cuba).

The food was really outstanding - starting with an extensive breakfast ending with an excellent dinner. Johan worked as a chef in France and he really knows how to spoil his guests :-)

We reserved our room is via email (johan.machin.morales@gmail.com). As Johan does not have regular internet access it can take one day until he answers. If you need a quicker reply, you can call him at +53 52 96 88 81. He speaks Spanish, French and English.

This was by far best casa we had during our trip to Cuba! Definitely highly recommended!

Positive:
- wonderfully renovated house with a lovely garden
- close to the center with all sights in walking distance, but at the same time very quiet and relaxing - a real oasis in Trinidad
- clean and well-maintained rooms with a unique style
- wonderful food, also for vegetarians. Johan is a very good cook and he prepared the best vegetarian food we had in Cuba
- lovely hosts who make you feel like being part if their familiy. We really enjoyed the conversations with them where we got to learn a lot about Cuban culture and way of living

What to improve:
We are usually really critical, but we found nothing to improve. The only negative thing is that you will not be willing to leave in the end ;-)

The best casa we stayed in Cuba. Half of it percectly renovated with stucco and earthen plaster, half of it a nice extension with reclaimed wood from old mansions and nice stucco too, gives you more details about traditional architecture of Cuba than any visit in a museum in Trinidad.
The owners are very nice persons and very friendly and helpful.
I hope some day to return to have the opportunity to taste the delicious dinner too.

I stayed here for 3 nights and loved it. The rooms were quiet and cool, the hosts gracious and hospitable. I would very much recommend this casa, and the best way to book is by email or phone, not through Facebook. Unfortunately I didn't get to have any of Johan's wonderful dinners, but that leaves me something to look forward to!
Thank you for your kindness.

After booking this casa particular due to a recommendation of a good friend in Havanna, me and my girlfriend had no idea what to expect.
When we arrived to the old authentical street and the simpel door of the casa, we really hoped that the casa is in an other condition as the street...
And yes it was!! It was an unexpectet surprise. Colonial style high celings, a green garden to sit and to relax and the room had everything we needed.
The family which welcomed us really had a cheerful disposition and helped us finding good restaurants and nice places.
In addition to all that the owner is an excellent cook who worked as cusinier in France.
All in all a nice place with authentical feeling and very good food!!
