I had a great time at Fernando's and Teresa's house! They are both very friendly people who make you feel right at home. Fernando is very helpful with organising your trip to the next destination (as for me, he helped me figure out accommodation and transport to Viñales for a very good price) and Teresa makes the best breakfast! The location of the apartment is perfect for exploring the city, both Old town and Centro. I highly recommend this homestay!!
This lovely couple is just what you need after a long flight to Havana! They are both lovely and we got along well, even though my Spanish is limited. The location is perfect, walking distance to everything in the old city centre of Havana. The breakfast was the best we had in whole Cuba, different everyday and a lot of food. The shower is amazing as well, good water pressure, unlike in a lot of other homestays. The only room for improvement would be the mattress as it is quite hard (we're used to a soft mattress) and a bit uneven.
Muchas gracias par todos!
I am a 75 year old solo traveller, and stayed for 2 weeks at Teres's and Fernando's home.
The Casa is conveniently situated within walking distance of all the historical sights, museums, restaurants and shops.
The room is comfortable and spacious. All amenities are in working order. Everything is kept spotlessly clean at all times.
This Casa is special because of its hosts.
Terese's breakfasts are healthy, generous and tasty. Do try her evening meals! Better than any in town!
Fernando will organize transport, give advice, and help in any situation.
Language barriers existed, some conversations ending up in a pantomime! But we had such laughs!
Terese and Fernando helped to make my stay comfortable, safe and unforgetable.
For a good and authentic Havana experience I fully recommend this Casa.
Fernando y Teresa son muy amables! La casa está bien hubicada y los desayunos riquisimos! Disfrutamos de nuestra estadía con ellos!
Siamo stati in questa casa ad inizio settembre è una famiglia gentile e disponibile, la stanza è pulita e comoda anche per girare Avana vecchia.
The casa is located in the old part of Havana close to El Capitolio. The room is nice and both Theresa and Ferdando are nice people. Nice breakfast, though not included in the price as stated on homestay, it's cheap and there is lots of it. Fernando speaks a little English which helped a lot since our Spanish is very limited.
Fernando and Teresa made us feel comfortable and welcome in their home. Breakfast was lavish and always very good. The location of their casa is only about 2 minutes walk from the center of Havana Vieja. Fernando is always very helpful.
I loved staying with Fernando and Theresa during my 4 night stay in Habana. The room was very comfortable and has everything you need to be comfortable and enjoy your stay. Fernando and Theresa were very welcoming and hospitable during my stay. They were also very patient with my poor use of Spanish, which I really appreciated. Would recommend for the authentic experience and proximity to Capitolio Nacional/Habana Viaje.
Fernando e Teresa, persone speciali, grandissimo cuore!
We had the most wonderful stay with Fernando and Teresa--by far the best stay during our entire time in Cuba! Fernando and Teresa were incredibly kind, welcoming us into their home with open arms, answering all of our questions, offering recommendations for things to do, places to eat, to go dancing, etc., cooking delicious breakfasts, and helping organize a collectivo to Vinales. We couldn't ask for a better location: the casa is situated right next to the Capitolio, a ten minute walk from the heart of Habana Vieja and Centro. It's in a very vibrant, local neighborhood, right above a bakery (with the most delicious smells of freshly baked bread). They had an adorable balcony, overlooking the neighborhood, where we loved drinking our afternoon coffees. If you are visiting Havana, make sure to stay with Fernando and Teresa! You won't be disappointed!!
