The space

Welcome to the Cuban countryside. In our room you will feel elements from outside while resting comfortably in your bed and listening to the roosters greet the day. Roberto, Odalys, their two children, Alejandro (19), Amanda (12) and their dog, Merengue are looking forward to giving you a warm experience in rural Cuba.

Odaly’s worked for many years in a paladar as a chef, but decided to now open up her home to tourists and share her culinary talents with them in her house. Guests will be able to try many (organic) traditional criolla dishes made from the house’s garden or local suppliers. In the garden they grow: tomatoes, mangos, spinach, cucumber, bananas, anis, mint, pepper, cabbage and beans. If you are interested in helping or learning about gardening, you are welcome to help us. The family loves the cultural exchange that goes on between them and their visitors and is looking forward to learning more with their new guests!

The Hotel Jazmines, where you will find internet and a stunning view of the valley, is just a 5 minute walk from the house. The neighborhood is very calm and you can walk wherever you like without any problem.

There are plenty of things to do from horseback riding, walking tours, visiting tobacco farms, to visiting coffee plantations. We offer the possibility of renting bikes during your stay for a small fee (we have 2 adult and 1 child bike).

Coming in a group of 4? The house next door belongs to Roberto’s sister who also rents out a room to visitors and it would be very easy to combine meals/activities.

Roberto and Odalys hope you will allow them the opportunity to give you some wonderful memories of their family and of Cuba!

My experience at Roberto's Casa was one of my favorite Air B&B stays. Roberto and Odaly's are kind and gracious hosts who immediately made me feel welcome and a part of their family. Their house is immaculate and my room and bathroom were comfortable, clean and nicely decorated (towels were nicely rolled up on my bed with flowers). Roberto and Odalys take great pride in making sure their guests feel at home and have everything they need. They offered me several delicious fruit juices throughout my stay and were always available to answer my questions and assist me with your reservations. They helped set up a tour of The Valley on horse ride with a guide, which I really enjoyed and highly recommend doing. Odalys prepared two scrumptious dinners and breakfasts for me - way better than any good you can find at the local restaurants, especially since most of the good is natural and coming directly from their garden! Downtown Viñales is just a 10 min cab ride. The town is so full of tourists I was happy to be staying in a quieter more quaint part of town! I highly recommend this home for anyone wanting a peaceful place to get away from the stresses of City life.

Great little casa in Viñales Valley - a 5 cuc taxi ride from town. Secluded spot but just five mins walk to Hotel Jazmines if you need internet. Our hosts were great - even with the language barrier. Any time we needed a translator they would fetch a neighbour to help out! The stars at night were unbelievable and the food was great.

This place was awesome! The family is so helpful and friendly. The food was some of the best I ate in Cuba and I loved the location, just enough outside of the city that I could relax but close enough to Los Jaxmines that I could use the pool, wifi and enjoy the best views of the valley. I 100% recommend this place to anyone traveling in Vinales!

Odalys, Roberto, Alejandro, and Amanda's casa was quite simply the best experience in airbnb we have ever had. Their beautiful (extended) family's small community (grandmother and aunts etc. Live in three neighboring homes) and shared farm were peaceful, warm, and welcoming. It was a refreshing change of pace from the more touristy areas; we are so glad we stayed here rather than in the center of Vinales. Our arrival process was incredibly smooth due to the clear and detailed information sent to us ahead of tim by Elle and it was super easy (and inexpensive) to set up tours and meals with Odalys. They were happy to let us go adventure on our own or sit on the porch and chat with them whenever we felt like it. Alejandro have us a cool tour of the farm and odalys cooked us the best meal we had in all our ten days in Cuba with ingredients from it. The whole extended family even took great care of us when we were sick from something we ate in Havana and refused to charge us for the home remedies that got us feeling "fuerte" again. We didn't want to leave!

My friends and I had stayed at both; Mango Mangrove and Watermelon Wanderlust. Staying at Mango Mangrove (for me) was a very pleasant experience. Speaking on behalf of my friends, their stay at Watermelon Wanderlust was exactly the same. The food was exceptional (at both casas) and we were also taken care of beyond our expectations. My friends and I have limited Spanish proficiency, however we were able to have clear conversations since our hosts spoke with clarity and were patient with our many grammar mistakes--this made communication very easy for us. At first, we were welcomed with a warm welcome and rum in a coconut, very refreshing after travel! The area is beautiful and just far enough away from the center of the city to have a nice little escape. Both families were very helpful with information and helping arrange travel. My friend had gotten sick on the first day in Vinales. Her hosts had taken great care of her making sure she was fully rested and better for the next day's activities. If you are looking for a place to stay that is quiet, welcoming, has good food, and great people, please book your stay here!! If we are back in Vinales, this will be our go-to place from now on. Thanks again, Odalys, Roberto, Marisol and Leiva!!!

Casa de Roberto y Odaly was a fantastic and beautiful experience. The room was so gorgeously designed and the bathroom was like a little oasis. The whole family welcomed me with open arms and made sure my time in Los Jasmines was perfect. Roberto organized a horseback riding excursion for me, and when I asked if he could help me plan a route for a solo excusision he invited his friend over to talk about the best way to navigate the trails. Odaly made me hands the BEST food I had in Cuba (come hungry). There daughter and son are a delight and I love their dog. Big family vibes here, as their whole family lives in this area. Always lots of love, laughs, and beauty. Would recommend staying here over the centre if you want a break from tourists and want to be among and connect with real Cubans. Also their garden is soooo amazing and the variety of flowers are incredible. I really felt as if I was part of the family. Thanks everyone, I miss you already :]
