This husband and wife team run an excellent guest house! Our room was immaculate, Maria's food was fresh and wonderfully prepared, and Basilio took us to a tobacco plantation. He also took time to map our day trip to Viñales on THE most scenic back road imaginable. Basilio's ability to communicate in English was a grateful surprise for us too. Thank you Maria nd Basilio for a wonderful stay!

We had a great stay at Basilios and Marias Casa. They organized great tours and excursions for us. The house is located outside the city, which allows a great view into green fields and tobacco plantations. We sat on the veranda watching the sunset and the Cuban life on the street which was great! Maria prepared delicious breakfasts and dinners for us and even guests from outside came to try her food.

Basilio and Maria were wonderful hosts and made us feel at home. My dad and I enjoyed our room as well as the back patio that looks out onto the countryside - perfect for journal writing. Basilio picked us up from Habana and took us on three day trips. He was a knowledgeable and fun driver and guide. We appreciated how he tailored the trips to our interests (which often involved swimming!). Since my dad doesn't speak Spanish, Basilio's English skills were very helpful. Last, but certainly not least, Maria's cooking was outstanding!

We spent 3.5 days with Maria and Basilio - and from the first moment we were picked up from the center of Pinar Del Rio to the last moment we were dropped off in Havana - we were totally satisfied.

Maria keeps a wonderful home and produced some delicious food. It was good fresh authentic Cuban food (the pineapple at breakfast was really amazing!).

Basilio is the perfect host - he filled our days by acting as a personal tour guide. From tobacco plantations to 'prehistoric' cave paintings to fantastic vistas across the Vinales - Basilio knows them all.

Basilio speaks very good English - which was useful as our Spanish is not that good!

We spent 3 weeks moving around Cuba, and the time spent at Villa Vueltabajo was definitely some of the best.

Thank you Maria and Basilio for such a wonderful stay. And thanks to your Lada! Together we covered some miles! Hope to see you again some time.

Room Tip: All rooms are good!
