From the moment I arrived at the Viazul Bus Terminal in
Trinidad and was met by two of Grisel's enthusiastic friends who
took me to the Casa, I knew this would be a good experience.
My stay was in mid-October 2014.

I had planned 3 nights but ended up staying five - because of
the wonderful welcome from this family. Grisel (dentist) and her
mum Isabel ( who cooks a mean Chicken Fricasee) run this
very clean and comfortable Casa, while Grisel's lawyer husband
Alexis doubles as a tour guide,

The house is modern and quirky with 2 internal spiral staircases,
one of which leads to the fantastic rooftop terrace.
From the terrace, you can see the tops of the buildings of the
historic town centre ( quite close ) , the beautiful low mountains
to the north, and the sea in the distance.
And from early evening outside on the RoofTerrace, you get a
good idea where the musical action is coming from in the town.

Breakfast was great, and more than I could eat.
Dinner ( with a menu ) is also on offer, and was equal to a
good restaurant.

I hired Alexis for a morning tour in his little Blue Fiat of the
Valle de los Ingenios - a very special look at the main
attractions, and one or two gems off the tourist track.

Both Grisel and Alexis speak excellent English.
With Isabel, they have been successfully running a Casa
for about 15 years ( 4 years or so in the current house)
but only recently found out about TripAdvisor.
They have a thriving network of Danish guests which
started years ago by word of mouth.

All in all, a delightful base for visiting Trinidad.

Room tip: I chose the front room which has a small balcony overlooking the street. A double bed and a single, with aircon & en-suite bathroom. From 7am, lone streetsellers of things like bread or avocadoes pass by with their delightful chants.

I had the pleasure of staying here for a few nights last week. Very good value casa with a large room (two double beds) and attached bathroom... plus a terrace with a couple of rocking chairs. Grisel and her husband, Alexis (who is also a tour guide), both speak excellent English. Breakfast was good and the location was great... just a couple of minutes walk to the main square of Trinidad. Highly recommended!
