Casa Leizip y Migel Angel
My review: The casa is located on the out skirts of Matanzas City not too far from the university and only a short cab ride to downtown or a beach with a nice coral reef. The family is in their mid 30's, Miguel works as a lifeguard at the Melia Las Antillias in Varadero and speaks great English as well as some Russian and Italian. Lepzig is a stay at home mom who speaks great english as well. When we got to the casa we were greeted with open arms, they are your average Cuban family allways happy to meet new people and make friends. The main rental area has a modern kitchen with all apliances, central air conditioning (no window shakers here, you can barley hear the thing running and man is that nice at night!)Full bathroom with washer and beautiful bedroom coming out onto a huge balcony overlooking a large back yard where you can go and get some sun or shade and relax. There is also a second room they just finished which is smaller but very cozey with a bed, bath and kitchen also. Gated parking for up to 3 vechiles if needed, great neighbours and quiet neighbourhood. 5 min walk to the ocean and resturants on the bay. They helped us get our groceries and we cooked all our meals ourselves or if you want for a nominal charge they will cook your meals and clean too. We stayed 17 days here out of our 3 weeks because we just loved it!
How was your room?: Room was excellent with the central air conditioning it was the most comfortable place we have stayed in the 22 times we have been to Cuba.
How was the food they offer?: For the most part we cooked our own but the meals they made and we ate togeather were great!
Other services they offer: Miguel is a great tour guide, he only works every other day, he grew up in Matanzas and knows it well. Full cooking, cleaning and laundry if you just want to relax and do nothing!
