Apartment is in a second floor with private entry. Ocean view from balcony is awesome during summer, coconut tree around the house to remember you are in the caribean. Jibacoa Beaches and resorts are around the corner. A nice place to stay.
“The apartment is located in a tiny seaside village. Accomodations were top notch and great value. Yoani arranged taxis for us. Large apartment, lots of hot water, balcony with ocean view was exceptional. Be aware that the shoreline in El Fraille is all coral rock making it difficult and dangerous to get into the ocean, and if weather conditions are not right, it is unsafe to snorkel or swim. If looking for a laidback seaside experience with a view, this is a good place. Our first impression was that it would be a great place to write a book. We got used to the 4am roosters. Yoani generously brought up fresh bananas from her garden. She regularly checked to be sure we had enough towels etc. Kitchen is equipped, but there is nowhere to purchase groceries. There is a good restaurant down the street, El Rechino with above average food and great friendly service.”

“We really enjoyed visiting the house of Maida and Leonardo! Wonderful married couple! Maida kept the apartment in perfect cleanliness, changed clothes and a towel every day and took out the trash. A couple of times, Maida washed clothes for us in her washing machine and then neatly laid them out. Leonardo is an excellent conversationalist who can tell a lot about Cuba and suggest the nuances of life in Guanabo. The apartment is spacious, with a kitchen on which there is all the necessary utensils, a refrigerator, a TV, a separate bedroom with air conditioning, a hot shower and toilet and a terrace with a table and chairs. The apartment is located on the second floor of the house, the owners live on the third floor. The house is 350 meters from the ocean. There is a feature that tap water is very salty and difficult to drink (but you can wash everything), but you can cook soups, pasta and almost no salt on it. Drinking water was bought in a store (1 km from the house) for 1.9 CUC / 5 liters or 0.8 CUC / 1.5 liters. There is a small shortage of food in the city, so I advise you to bring cereals, pasta, cheese, sugar, salt, spices, yeast, flour, sunflower oil (here only soybean). Eggs sometimes appear in the shop. Vegetables and fruits are abundant in the Guanabo market (about 1 km from the house), they are inexpensive, prices per pound (1 lb (libra) = 450 grams), they sell for pesos cubanos (CUP), they weigh. I advise you to exchange money for pesos cubanos (CUP), they are accepted everywhere, it is more profitable to pay them on the market. Near the house, the bus stop A40, which goes to Havana (40 minutes - 20 km), costs 0.4 CUP. On the way back, the owners ordered an inexpensive taxi to Havana Airport (35 CUC - 50 km - 1 hour). Maida and Leonardo, thank you very much!”

“Amazing place if you want to experience the authentic Cuban way of life. I loved my stay, Estelita is an awesome host and her house is exactly what I needed to stay a couple of days right by the beach. I'm so happy I've found this place! Will definitely come back in the future!!! Everything was just lovely. Gracias, Estelita!!”
