I just got back from staying in this lovely home. I enjoyed my time there immensely. It's very clean and cozy and would highly recommend it if the resort vacation isn't your style. Everything was within walking distance and the food Marilyn and her family prepared was delicious. Thanks again! Laura and Tito

I'm a bit puzzled by the number of overwhelming comments here, especially when seeing that most contributors published less than 5 comments on TripAdvisor at all... anyway, the casa is nice. Pavel and Marylin's daughter were nice and helpful. Food was ok. The only downside of the location is that is in a relatively loud neighborhood with roosters, dogs and...

Dear Tobias First of all we do thank you for your overall positive comment about our casa. On the other hand it is a bit unfair to diminish the value of other comments. It's not our fault or business how many comments are written by people. They just enjoyed their stay very much and commented so. Dogs and roosters do...

Marilyn is extremely nice and helpful. I spent my first night in Cuba in her house and it was a great introduction into cuban reality. Thanks to Marilyn's advice I learnt how to travel in Cuba like Cubans do (not being only a turist). The room was nice and clean, and the breakfast on the terrace just lovely.

I will return again and...

There was absolutely no overbooking. Through a misunderstanding Alec probably thought getting two rooms for the price of one. (25 Cuc is the average price for one room in Cuba. Nowhere can you get two rooms for this rate. He became agressive and demanded refund. We contacted the immigration office and registered the case. If he should ever behave that...

Nice casa with nice pepole. The room and the bathroom were big and comfortable. The balcony where we had breakfast was very cute. Marilyn was very friendly and Pavel always ready to bring us anywhere. It was a pleasure to stay here.

Hola! I have no complaints. Marylin is a warm and caring hostess and works very hard and cares very much about her business. Her cousin, who was there to offer anything we needed, was as well very dedicated and hard working. We shared many laughs and precious moments. I feel SO LUCKY to have experienced non-resort Cuba twice now. There...
