About the Homestay
My parents (Eusebia & Eusebio) lives in a lovely house just 5 min walk from the centre of Viñales.
The room is very cosy and elegant. It has an independent entrance, 2 double beds, A/C, an ensuite bathroom with 24/7 hot and cold water. The room is cleaned and rubbishes are emptied every day for your comfort.
Apart from the room, you can access many areas in the house:
- An interior terrace, just outside of the room, with table and chairs, where you’ll have served your breakfast and/or meals, where you can read, relax and also play domino with us. If you fancy it, we can teach you the cuban way. We always have great fun with hosts playing at dominos. This activity is monitored by the master himself, Eusebio my dad.
- The porch where you can relax after a good day exploring Viñales’s landscape. You can use the rocking chairs and watch the nice garden with orchids, orange tree and medicinal herbs.
- Last but not least, the terrace on the rooftop. You can admire the famous mogotes of Viñales and also see the hotel La Ermita up on the hill. You can of course relax on rocking chairs. Great place to see the stars at nigh too !
The food — the cocktails:
We also serve lunch, dinner and picnic pack. Eusebia, our cook (and my mum too !), prepare tasty and typical cuban food. We provide a wide range of products and we’re used to adapt it to our hosts’s special diet (vegetarian, gluten free etc…). Just let us know in advance to organise ourselves.
We also serve homemade cuban cocktails. Don’t hesitate to try a mojito, a cuba libra or the Ida’s special !

The Casa particular was clean and Eusebio and Eusebia were very friendly. The language barriers were easy to compensate by Eusebios translation app. They helped us to book a wonderful hiking tour with a German speaking guide, called Nelson. The breakfast and the dinner were always very big and very delicious, so you need a huge hunger! For your bus trip to Trinidad they made us a lovely lunch box, which was so nice! Thanks again for the hospitality!
Eusebia and Eusebio are super sweet and good people. They're happy to provide breakfast, lunch, or dinner, as well as juice, and then there's a fridge stocked with water, soda, and beer. The food I had at this casa was easily the best of the casas I stayed at in Cuba. The room was comfortable, and the location was great (just a little outside the center of town, and also closer to the National Park). They set me up with a horseback ride through the National Park that was excellent. Highly recommend and I would stay here again.
Choosing this casa to stay for four nights were one of best decisions we made in Cuba. Eusebio and Eusebia were the most kind thoughtful and humble couple that we have met and readily welcomed us into their home and treat us like their family . When I developed a cough on the last day they gave me medicine and insisted that I need to look after myself!
The casa location was bit tricky but it is close to both the bus station and the main road (both within 5-10 minutes walk) The Mango Room was good size with working AC and fan. There were excellent hot water for shower. The breakfasts were generous but their dinner was on another level and is very recommended. Eusebio was also able to sort us bikes which was useful. Overall I cannot recommend this casa highly enough.
Eusebia and Eusebio were very friendly, helpful and customer orientated. Eusebia is a very, very great cook. We recommend everyone the breakfast and dinner! Gracias por todo and just the best! Saludos Luca y Nadina
- Good breakfast and dinner.
- Helpfull with arranging tours.
- Eusebio picked us up from the bus stop when we arrived.
- The beds are really hard.
- We gave them 1,5 bags of laundry and asked how much it was to wash our clothes. Eusebio responded: Just a little bit! And even made a hand geasture with his fingers. (My husband speaks Spanish so we were able to communicate normally with them). When we went over the bill we saw they charged us 25CUC for the laundry! This would even be a lot in our own country. And the clothes didn’t even smell fresh. Approxamately the same amount of laundry costed 5CUC in another casa we were later.
It was a pleasure to be guests in this Casa. Breakfast was amazing. I would really recommend it.
Ho soggiornato a casa dei genitori di Idaisys per due notti. La camera è molto bella, pulita, i letti sono comodi, il bagno è ben attrezzato. La posizione della casa è perfetta per raggiungere il centro che dista circa 5/10 minuti a piedi. Vinales è bellissima, vi consiglio di dedicargli almeno 5 giorni. Eusebia ed Eusebio sono stati veramente gentilissimi e ci hanno aiutato in tutto. La colazione che ci preparavano la mattina era ricca e variegata e hanno saputo indicarci le principali attività da poter svolgere a Vinales. Consigliatissima l'escursione a cavallo che Idaisys mi ha aiutato a prenotare! Uno dei ricordi più belli del mio viaggio a Cuba. Soggiorno top.
Un grand merci pour tout! Tout était parfait, le cadre, les repas, la convivialité et la gentillesse de cette famille. La région est magnifique, notre coup de coeur!!!
The house of Ida was perfect. Eusebio and eusebia were so kind and sweet. They helped us with everything and were very understanding. The best breakfast we had in Cuba in 2 weeks (fruit, pancakes, ...). The room was very Nice, clean, good shower. I recommand everyone to stay at this casa!
We stayed with Idaisys for 2 nights. Villa is close to the centre of Vinales and we were made to feel very welcome, almost part of the family. Although the owners do not speak any English we made ourselves understood and you can always call on Idy or her husband Alex who both speak excellent English. They organised a horse back tour for us and Alex gave us great advice on good places to eat and drink. Room is spacious and very clean with a ensuite bathroom. Great breakfast. Cannot fault the experience.
