The neighbourhood was very safe. The staff staying at the house gave us piece of mind. Awesome restaraunt directly across the street.
This villa was an excellent choice for our family vacation. The home is beautifully decorated and meticulously well maintained. The staff are extremely welcoming and helpful, not to mention excellent food preparation. They even went out of their way to accommodate a family member who wasn't feeling well and prepared a meal spur of the moment when asked. We spent most of our time in the pool area in the afternoons after touring the city in the mornings. We were so appreciative of the shaded cabana. The restaurant across the street had delicious food which we ordered as takeout. The entire vacation I felt very safe in our neighborhood and home and would recommend this villa for a vacation.
Had a wonderful time at the villa. Set a stone throw outside the old walls the area is cool and vibrant with locals going about their business during the day and the cool restaurants coming to life as the sun sets. Wonderful bars and restaurants exist in doorways you would thing were dilapidated.
The live in help at the villa were so lovely and were there 24/7 to help with anything. We did not need a key at all. The rooftop pool was a delight and a great way to cool off after a days exploring. I would recommend this villa to anyone, particularly if you seek something in an area thats edgy and upcoming.
The place is perfect and exactly as advertised (if not better). There are 3 bedrooms each with a private full bathroom. There is also a half bath near the pool and another near the kitchen/dining room. There is also a room with air conditioning next to the pool with a sort of coach - not a real bed.
The air conditioning works great.
The pool is spectacular and perfect for water aerobics and for kicking - and just cooling off. They have a great sound system at the pool with an ipod with great music for hanging out or water aerobics.
We liked the neighborhood even more than being within the city walls. Plaza Trinidad is 50 feet away and has great performers and lots of outdoor cafes. Cafe Havana with live music (we went Thu/Fri/ and Sat) was spectacular and just 1 block away. The city wall is about 4-5 minutes walk from the house.
The breakfast at the house is VERY good.
The staff at the house (a woman during the day for the breakfast and a guy at night to watch the place) were 100% pleasant. Having the staff there 24 hours makes you feel very comfortable - and no keys to worry about as they just let you in as you wish.
They provided towels as needed for the beach, pool, and showers.
It was just a perfect place to stay. I would LOVE to stay in a place like this EVERYWHERE.
The space lived up to the pictures, with lovely accommodations and amenities. The location right near Plaza de Trinidad in Getsemani made for easy trips to nearby restaurants and sights.
