One of
Cuba's Top 10 casas — a perennial favorite of travellers. This is a fairly large colonial built in 1890 by a coffee dealer from Marseille (France). Gustavo's great-grandfather inherited it. Yalina has French ancestry, as do a lot of Baracoans.

The building was renovated in 2006 and extensively enlarged in 2012-13 with one large three-bedroom upper fl
oor and yet another even higher with a bedroom and a terrace, as shown on photo above.

Located on a quiet street, its access is now through a narrow staircase on the facade. It leads up to a small lounge and a pantry for meal service by which sits the large front bedroom with two double beds, ideal for two couples or a family, as it has two windows opening onto the front balcony where meals of that bedroom's guests can be enjoyed.

There are two other
new bedrooms down the hall, both ac with ensuites, of course (one with double and single; other with a double). These lead to the terraces in the back with views of the sea and Mount Yara.

Dinners are mastered by Neubi, a descendant of aboriginals who, in our humble opinion is the best casa chef on the island : mark our words.

Two floors up, a lovely terrace from where Mount Yara and the sea can be seen. The lovely couple lives with their daughter and son. Assured parking on the street.


[The regular entrance on the ground floor opens on to the family's own living room with a great antique dining room set and two air-conditioned bedrooms each with its private bathroom and lovely wooden wall panels and louvers. One is right on a naturally-lit patio where Yalina's muy rico chocolate greets guests for breakfast. Rental priority is given to the new, upper bedrooms.]
