About the Homestay
Family house in the center of Santa Clara, Cuba, owned by an English teacher. Cozy, comfortable with private bathroom. Beautiful garden. Home is extremely clean and well-kept.
Located in the center of the city of Santa Clara, across the road from the Plaza de la Iglesia Nuestra Señora del Carmen (Parque del Carmen). This is where the city of Santa Clara was founded in the seventeenth century. There is a beautiful monument next to the church to highlight this important event.

There are two confortable rooms with air-conditioning, private bathrooms, 24 hours hot-water, small refrigerator/mini-bar.
I can prepare breakfasts and other meals for a supplement. I make my own wheat bread - an exclusivity in Cuba.
Wifi is available throughout the casa.
I have bicycles for rent.
