“WOW - you have to stay here”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 8, 2014

I am sorry that we were only able to spend one night in this Casa, I could have stayed for days. The view is just amazing, across the gorgeous valley of Vinales. The breakfast was incredible - fresh coconut - wow! The room itself was larger than any other casa I have stayed in. As nobody was staying in the second room, my boyfriend and I had the entire floor to ourselves. It was bigger than our London apartment! The room was clean, comfortable and the bathroom was spotless and the shower was both powerful and warm - amazing!

We stayed here one night and struggled to find it to start with (as we had a hire car and that was a constant problem) but once there we were warmly greeted and shown our lovely room. The balcony was really nice to soak up the sun and relax, while watching the locals go about their day on the road. Our host kindly organised bikes for us to bike down through the tobacco plantations where we stopped at the Cuevas del Indio which was worth a look. Breakfast was huge and really very nice, overall we loved Vinales and it seemed such a nice laid back place.

Vinales was our 2nd destination on our Cuban adventure.. Ozviel arranged transport for us from Havana, which saved us getting on the Viazul, so that was a bonus to start with.
The Casa itself is absolutely beautiful. Spacious room, separate dining area, private balcony, what more could you want! Actually a fridge full of beer and water I hear you say .... Well we had that too!
Ozviel and Karenia we're perfect hosts and their food was fabulous too.
They arranged a private guide for 2 days at a brilliant price and we trekked around the mountains, hills, valleys, fields etc. It was a wonderful diversion from the hustle and bustle of Havana. I cannot recommend to Casa highly enough. Stay here and see for yourself.

My friend and I stayed with Osviel and Kirenia in April 2014 and had a wonderful time in their beautiful home.

There is only one room to rent and you get a lot for your money! You have the room and bathroom, as well as a indoor dining area and the VERY sunny balcony! It was simply perfect to chill out there after a day a walking in beautiful Vinales.

Osviel arranged for us to have a private guide (Yosman) for two days. He took us to a tabacco plantation and caves on day one, and then we walked the mountains and went to the 'Blue House' on day two. It was exactly what we were looking for from our time in Vinales, so thank you to Yosman and Osviel for helping us make the most of our time there.

Other amazing services to note are Osviel arranging for us to be collected from Havana, dropping us off at the bus stop at 6:45 am on the day we left and providing us with a fully stocked fridge of Cristal that we enjoyed on the wonderful sunny balcony. Also, we ate there each night and the food was devine.

I recommend this casa to anyone....it was simply perfect!

My boyfriend I had two wonderful days at Osviel and Kirenia's lovely casa in the idyllic town of Vinales. Their service taxi picked us up at our hotel in Havana and brought us fast but safe to the house, where Osviel welcomed us with his friendliness and a big smile. We were offered the best service we experienced during our holiday in Cuba, and Kirenia made by far the best food we ate. Also the cleanliness is way better than what you see at the hotels. And Osviel; your mojito is soo good! We had all our meals (except one lunch during a trip around Vinales valley) at the casa, and enjoyed them on our huge private balcony while watching the daily Cuban life pass by. The house is perfectly located a max 10 min walk from the center of the town. If you go to the bank to get cash, remember to bring your passport and wear sandals (not flip-flops). On weekends there is salsa dancing in town - worth experiencing! We also recommend going on excursions. We went on a tour around the area by taxi (which Osviel arranged), and saw the Indian Cave, a tobacco farm, a viewpoint and more. We also went on a horseride, wich was so harmonic and idyllic. Thank you so much for a wonderful stay, Osviel and Kirenia.

We had an awesome stay in this Casa. The hosts were really friendly and helpfull, and the house was of good standard. The whole upper floor is at the guests disposal, with 2 balconies and a great view over the valley. Only a short walk to the city centre.

My husband and I recently stayed with Osbiel and Kierna for 5 nights at the beginning of April. We had a fantastic, relaxing stay in Vinales and would 100% recommend their home to any visitor traveling through Vinales. Their beautiful and very new home is about a 8 minute walk into the main part of town, which is great as it is surrounded by fields, with amazing views of the Magotes from the huge private guest balcony. We also enjoyed all of our breakfasts and dinners on this balcony which was a perfect way to start and finish the day. The food Kierna created was superb. She hand makes Everything. From guava jam, coconut spreads, juices, beautiful soups with dinner, and much more. All of our meals here were delicious, well priced and filling, we are already missing the fresh guava pudding. The room, like the balcony is on the 2nd floor and was spacious, very clean, with an ensuite bathroom, and a safety deposit box. (which is great for passports etc, although not really needed in this very safe and friendly town) The whole 2nd floor is reserved for guests, with the room, indoor dining area and balcony. A private place to enjoy. If you need to hire a car Osbiel can help organize this for you which we did twice, 1st to Cayo Jutias and then to Jibacoa when we left. Both were reasonably priced with kind, safe drivers, and more reasonably priced then working it out on your own. If you have the opportunity to stay at "Sunny Balcony" then you are very lucky! Vinales is amazing, well worth the visit, and this home is the perfect place to stay. Thank you Osbiel and Kierna, you both made our trip to Cuba!! We hope to return in the future.
