Lovely and Comfortable Stay
Lovely stay with Karelia and Victor. They know very little English, but we're warm and helpful and we did fine with our limited Español. There are no breakfasts offered now because Karelia told me sadly she could not obtain eggs or bread regularly because of food shortages. Very comfortable, a shirt 2 blocks to the beach. There was a bright street light right over our car parked out front so felt very safe, and there was plenty of available parking. I would stay there again in a heartbeat if I was going back to Varadero.

Great room, great hosts
Lovely hosts, helpful and accommodating even with the language barrier. Very clean and excellent shower. Pleasant courtyard and ideal location. Comms were sketchy but I'm going to put that down to everything in Cuba being a little unreliable!

8/10 Very good

Very clean, great location, nice hosts. The hosts, Karolia and Victor are very nice, accommodating, always cleaning and keeping the property in excellent condition. The house is separated into two, with one half for the hosts and other renters, so not as private as I had anticipated. Also, not a lot of sound barrier between the two sides. The outside area is also shared by all tenants. However, overall it was a great rental, and I would stay here again. :)

Had an excellent stay at this Casa. Karelia and Viktor were extremely kind and generous and really helped navigate the city for a first time visitor. The room was perfect-there was a TV and AC, and a beautiful yard to enjoy. Overall, everything was very comfortable. I used an app English to Spanish (available without wifi) which made conversation a lot easier. Thank you Karelia and Viktor for a great stay!

Excellent, like a little hotel. Very nice host who cleans perfectly. Two rooms, one at front with separate entrance and patio/porch. Large patio with tables at back (pictured). Less than 5min on foot to wonderful beach. Extremely good value for money. Wifi possible through host. Seriously intending to come back again some time.

Temporada Agradable en Varadero
Séjour agréable dans la casa de Karelia avec tous les services proposés qui étaient conformes au descriptif. Nos hôtes nous ont indiqué les quelques lieux qu’ils connaissaient afin que nous puissions découvrir pleinement Varadero. La chambre était très spacieuse. Le petit déjeuner n’a pas pu être réalisé par nos hôtes à cause de leurs conditions d’approvisionnement ce qui nous a attristé pour nos hôtes et les cubains en général. Merci à nos hôtes.
