Thought I'd write a review to heap praise on Chuchi y Mamita (and their daughter Marjey) for a wonderful stay in their home. The rental space has a great layout with two bedrooms, private bath, a sitting room, dining area, and kitchen. There is a small fridge fully stocked with bottled water, soda, beer, and wine - all of which was fairly priced. The entire space can be closed off from the rest of the house, if you wish. In addition, the front door leads to a nice covered porch with rocking chairs that we enjoyed. Everything was super clean, and the shower plenty warm. The most amazing place to spend your time, however, is on the rooftop terrace. We ate most of our meals up there (Chuchi is a fantastic cook - better than any meal we had in town), and once the sun set we enjoyed wine with a crystal clear view of the Milky Way - so many stars.
We had our two children with us (3 and 5), who were treated as family, and had a great time playing with Mr. Chuchi. The whole family was fantastic with us and our children, even when they were a bit rambunctious in the house. None of us speak great spanish, but the language of hospitality made that a non-issue. In addition, Marjey speaks fluent English and translated anything we needed. What else? They set up a taxi that picked us up at the airport and made travel to their home very easy, and also took us to Habana Vieja for the second portion of our trip. They also arranged a horseback tour of the valley for us, which was awesome. We brought toy cars, little dolls, glow bracelets and other small things as gifts for the children of Cuba. They ended up being a great ice-breaker, and our kids ended up playing with the neighboring children for hours - none of them able to converse with each other, but a night filled with laughter, fun, and priceless memories all the same.
Stay at this house with this lovely family. You won't be disappointed. We look forward to our return some day.
