I stayed 2 nights here. Overall, good central location. Esther and her husband are very friendly people, however they do not speak a word of english, so practice your spanish before you arrive. On my first night, Jouquin took me by car up to his brothers farm which overlooks the valley so I could watch the sunset and take photos....

This was a very centrally located house near the center of Vinales. The hosts were very nice, if a bit overly interested in our daily itinerary. The room was large enough to accommodate our things, and the bathroom was small but clean. Esther was a great cook, and stuffed us for breakfast and dinner!

Unfortunately our limited Spannish and Esther's limited English made communication difficult and may have led to misunderstandings about choosing to eat out, who we chose to guide us, and where to go. Fortunately a neighbour was able to help but we felt uncomfortable having to explain that we wanted to eat out in the evening rather than eat Esther's meals.The...

Esther has a casa located directly at one of the two main streets in Vinales. The room was big and very clean, as was the bathroom. There is warm water and an airconditioning as well as an extra fridge with beverages. Esther was very friendly and helped us to arrange a safe place to park our car at night (although...

Average casa where we felt the good points and bad points broadly balanced each other out but we wouldn't be rushing back to if alternative options were available. We enjoyed the central location one street away from the main street as well as Esther's tasty, large-sized dinners. Also the rocking chairs on the front porch provide a front-row view of...

We stayed at casa Esther for two nights (20 CUC per night). Esther (only speaks Spanish) was very helpful in arranging trips in Valle de Vinales (mountain bikes available, hiking guids can be arranged, etc.). Esther's food is AMAZING. Room is fine (two beds, private bath, frigde, fan and airco). Street is a bit noisy (troughfare). E-mail address: casaesthernodarse@yahoo.es

We spent three nights in this lovely casa on a quiet street a couple of blocks from the main street of Vinales. The room is large, the bed comfy and there is aircon (rather noisy but does the job) and a fan too. We were impressed to find that the room has en-suite bathroom and even its own fridge (rare...

Casa Esther is in a very nice and friendly neighbourhood. Just opposite is Villa Crystal that helped us to book Casa Esther. They are a lovely family who speak excellent English and they can help you with organising tours. Vinales is an amazing place and feels very organic, therefore the food is delicious. Esther and her husband are very warm...

We stayed at Casa Esther for 2 nights. Viñales is an absolutely beautiful place to visit, and the best part about it was our stay at Casa Esther! She is incredibly kind and offered up all kinds of suggestions for things to do in the area. Don't miss taking a ride with her son Joaquin and definitely trying some of...

I stayed at Esther's for a total of 4 nights, booked through Francisco from Villa Crystal. It was a very nice stay. The Casa is in a very central, the room was clean and has a private bathroom.

“As traffic is diverted from the main, central road, it is probably quieter to stay there.”

“Esther's daughter has a casa just 2 minutes away from the restaurant. She was just finishing renovation work when we stopped by, putting a final touch to a small roof top swimming pool... Ask Esther, she'll find you a room.”
