Armando, a great host who has been renting for more than a decade, recently augmented his hospitality space by acquiring the house next door and transforming it from top to bottom.

Villa Sonada has a new rooftop aircon bedroom with two beds, tables and chairs and a large new bathroom like a hotel suite.

The terrace has also been revamped in 2015 to enjoy meals brought up from the kitchen : new tables, lounge chairs and a swing.

The large casa colonial of Armando ("Mandy"), a charming and attentive middle-aged bachelor boasts, in the back, a kind of mini-apartment in black & white tiles with air-conditioning, private shower and bath (a real one), toilet, table, fridge, sink and counter and two single beds on the ground floor, in the back near the stairs leading to the large rooftop terrace and the adjoining new suite as well as a new sunroof terrace above the new bedroom.

Large, well-decorated living room, excellent cuisine (Armando picks up ideas from his regular trips to Europe), musica and joie de vivre are all part of Armando's hospitality. On request, you can check your e-mail.

The cozy and well-appointed rooftop terrace partially shaded boasts nice views of the city.

Armando manages well in English and can get along in Goethe's mother tongue. Highly recommended.

Rates : 25cuc per bedroom per night.

"I just arrived from three days spent in Matanzas, a town 10 minutes from the airport of Varadero.

I was lucky to stay there in a Cuban home where I had my own lovely apartment with a loft bedroom, bath with hot water, a luxury in Cuba and my own private toilet.

I stayed in this paradise for only 25 pesos convertibles a day.

"I loved everything about this casa.
But the best feature of all is the location, only a few blocks from the city centre, on a relatively quiet street corner where you are serenaded by the roosters in the morning and the street vendors selling their fresh bread, you can watch people come and go from school and work, where you can park yourself on a stoop and be entertained by the children playing in the street.

Thank you Mandy, Roly, Yisel, Idarmis and Marlan for making me feel so at home in Matanzas. "

Mandy's favorite taxi driver is honest, bilingual and very able Yoiré — a predestined name as it literally translates to "I will go".
Dinner on the rooftop
Santa Teresa # 6701, corner Santa Isabel, three blocks from Parque Libertad, facing a daycare centre grounds.
::: Across from the casa, the counter with alcohol, soft drinks and snacks is convenient.
Easy to reach whether you're coming from Havana (up or West) or Varadero airport, Varadero and the Hicacos peninsula or Cardenas (down or east) around the great Matanzas bay.
