The beautiful dining room.

The Lobby

The bedroom doors facing the courtyard, so as soon as you wake up you can have your coffee in the courtyard.

My favorite spot in the whole house, the courtyard. We always gathered here for a freshly made cocktail before going out for dinner!

Sit outside and soak up the sun in the interior courtyard.

Our beautiful bedroom, super quiet, and cozy, and cool. All the furniture and lights are made locally, and they’re incredible!

I love everything about the bathrooms, the beautiful brass appliances, the very cool cement sinks and the tiles are mind blowing.

The honesty bar, with all the Cuban rum and cigars you need during your stay!
