Katherine's place is close to the water which is nice, although not perfect for swimming.. does not look that clean...
The house is nice. The first floor and its rooms are really lovely, would definitely recommend them, also the breakfast on the water .. loved it!!
the second floor we were in can not be compared to the first floor, no real windows in most of the rooms, as it is two small apartments we were given. One has a nice bathroom, the other one a nice view but an awful bathroom in case you have only this apartment.. (shower over the toilet..). the second floor is more like for young students who do not care that much about where they sleep.
the first floor is really nice with even a beautiful big outdoor jacuzzi.
The use of the swimming pool next door is not really recommended (60 Euros for 4 hours and you have to book these 4 hours), I have never seen anybody in that pool.
The employees are really really nice! lovely ladies who take care of you like family. You can also use the driver (what we did as we could not get a taxi at evening) but it is really expensive, 30 CUC (Euros) to go in town (!!), 25 CUC to go to the airport. The breakfast is really tasty and my son loved the italian pasta in the evening when we got home after our tours (husband of Katerina is Italian). Btw Katerina is really nice, we did not see her often but she was always smiling and friendly.
One thing that was really annoying is that the neighbours have parties almost every evening with extremely loud music - for hours.. not good if you want to relax. There is a construction going on directly in front of the house.. so there is no real place to take a sunbath or relax outside, this is definitely missing. overall it was my first experience with airbnb and it was ok and would have been great if we had had the rooms on the first floor (above the ground floor). thank you!
