Wir haben 3 Nächte in dem schönen Kolonialhaus verbracht, in diesem gibt es 3 Zimmer, wobei sich 2 Zimmer ein Bad teilen müssen. Das Wohngebiet ist sehr ruhig und sicher, viele Botschaften und schöne Häuser in der Umgebung. Das Gastehepaar Maria und Raoul wohnen sozusagen im Hinterhaus, außerdem gibt es noch ein allerdings winziges Apartment zu mieten. Reizende Familie, sehr hilfsbereit, Raoul hat uns abends 2 x zu einem Restaurant und einer Bar gefahren. Morgens kommt die Schwägerin und bereitet das wunderbare Frühstück zu, bester Kaffee auf der ganzen Rundreise. Mit dem Taxi ist es kein Problem in die Stadt zu kommen, einmal sind wir auch mit dem Hop on Hop off Bus gefahren. (10 min zu Fuß vom Haus). Auf jeden Fall zu empfehlen, man fühlt sich herzlichst willkommen und gut aufgehoben um sich erst einmal an Kuba und seine Eigenheiten zu gewöhnen. Danke.
Maria and Raul were the loveliest of hosts! They were so helpful and welcoming. Their home is beautiful, and we began each day with Inez's delicious breakfasts. My husband and I would be so pleased to stay with them again!
We had a really great experience staying at Casa Maria. The place was beautiful,clean and very homey. Maria was very nice, friendly, very helpful and easy to get along with. She made our stay very easy and comfortable. Her husband Raul was very easy going as well and approachable. Dinorath which is the cook was very friendly, very nice and she actually taught us how to speak a little bit of Spanish. Breakfast was very good and big for only 5 cuc. I will definitely recommend Casa Maria to family and friends who wants to go to Cuba for a nice vacation

Sehr liebe und hilfsbereite Gastgeber.
Maria and Raul are lovely hosts and we enjoyed their facilities at the beginning and at the end of our 16 days Cuba trip. You feel like being at home, welcomed from the beginning and the area of Miramar is quiet, clean, green and nonetheless lots of activities possible restaurants, culture, shopping and a trip to Old Havanna is straight forward by Taxi or a tourist bus.
Is very good person!
I stayed with Maria and her husband Raul for a month and it's been a wonderful time!
Maria showed me the neighbourhood which is really nice and safe, took me to different places, lent me a cuban phone- to sum up she helped me wherever she could. I really enjoyed staying with these two beautiful people. From the beginning until the end my experience was absolutely great. Thanks for your amazing hospitality! I'm sure I will be back soon. Muchas gracias Maria and Raul!
