I stayed two days in Feb. 2012. Esther met me at the bus stop insisted to carry a bag to her Casa. She is shy as she does not speak english but knows how to take care of her guests.
The casa is spotless, has hot water in a private bathroom. A basic room with AC with two double beds. She has a neighbour who speaks english and is very helpful.

My wife and I visited Cuba for the first time during the last 2 weeks of January 2012 and after 3 nights in Havana we stayed at Casa Esther for 2 nights not really knowing what to expect. The room was very clean and spacious and whilst there was no back garden or roof area the front porch made a great people watching spot. By the end of our trip we had stayed in 5 diffrent Casas and whilst Esther's did not have the relaxing areas others offered it was by far and away the best cooking we experienced in Cuba. We would have no hesitation in staying with Esther again on our next trip and hope we can speak enough Spanish by then to converse with Esther.

We stayed 3 days in Casa Esther early January. The room and the bathroom were very clean and spacious. Esther cooked the best 2 meals we ate in our 2 week cuba trip. her son Joaquin has a nice 1950's car cab. He drived us around for 2 days including the beach, the caves, tobacco farms and all other interesting places Vinales has to offer. Overall we had a great experience. I strongly suggest Casa Esther.

Our trip in Vinales was only two days therefore we only stayed for one night, nevertheless we enjoyed the stay very much. Esther is indeed a great host, her place is clean and comfortable, good shower and food is super. We do not speak Spanish, but it did not hinder us from experiencing the warmth of the host.

I stayed, with my wife and daughter, for three nights at Esther's Casa over new years. We had a wonderful stay. Esthers cooking is superb and we felt very welcome, almost like part of the family. Her son, Joaquin, has a beatiful old Chevy and he took us on a couple of great tours around the valley and beyond. I wish I have the opportunity to go back one day.

Stayed: December 2011, traveled with family
