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.

The casa is three hundred meters from the Boulevard, adjacent to the Plaza Central, Parque Vidal, where you will find the main shops, banks, cafes, restaurants and recreational and cultural centres.

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.
I can offer tours of the city, and spanish lessons.

Additional Info

I can organize spanish lessons and city tours for you.

    It was a great pleasure to staying at Alicia's home. The rooms were very nice, lovely decorated and very clean.

    Alicia prepared a delicious breakfast for us.

    Alicia is a very nice, helpful person, we had nice chats and it was a pity to leave her house after only one night.

    We had a great stay with Alicia! She is a sweet, smart woman who can tell you a lot about Santa Clara and Cuba in general.
    The casa is very clean and cosy!
    Great breakfast as well!
    For someone who doesn't speak a lot of Spanish, it is refreshing to have the possibility to have conversations with a local in English.
