Our family of four had a wonderful five day stay at Idael and Dania's home. They are a very caring and fun-loving family who really went out of their way to make our stay in Matanzas memorable. Our two boys (aged 8 and 11) felt very comfortable in their home and roaming the back garden banana grove.
We had two comfortable bedrooms with a shared bathroom. The front bedroom has a balcony which overlooks the street and we enjoyed watching the neighbourhood action (vendors, etc.) from the deck chairs. (Another bedroom has an attached bathroom and a balcony overlooking the bark yard.
We had lots of fun playing card and dice games with our host's family around the outdoor dining table in the evenings. During the days we appreciated Idael's guiding service and learned a lot about Cuba and the area around Matanzas from him.
The meals were excellent at this home, every evening felt like we were at a nice restaurant. The food was very fresh, well prepared and plentiful. The desserts were wonderful too!
I was also really impressed that despite how busy this family is with their own children, they managed to take the time to integrate us, wherever they could, into their daily lives. Our boys felt very at home here and were sad to leave.
We highly recommend this home!
