About the Homestay
My house is located in the center of the capital, in a very popular neighborhood of Havana and very safe too, just minutes from historic Old Havana, and on the other hand is very close to Vedado, New Havana, where you have Quick access to attractions such as bars, clubs, restaurants, museums, banks and others.
Living in Centro Habana is a window to the Cuban capital.
There is everything necessary for you to spend a pleasant stay next to us.
The main objective of our house is to show you how the real life of Cubans, our culture, traditions, history, music, food. You will not leave from our house without taking with you the idea of true Cuban life.
You will also see that despite the economic difficulties, we Cubans continue to shake hands, happy, smiling, dancing, working, helping people, dreaming, and being better people every time.
It is for us a great pleasure to receive you, give you an exceptional treatment and make you feel at home, we are.
Our family is made up of my wife and I, who are two Doctors of 25 and 29 years respectively. We like to interact with people from other countries, learn from their diverse cultures and help them to understand ours.
We offer shuttle service from the airport; As well as book rooms in other provinces of the country.
We could cook meat and vegetarian food for guests with local flavor, and also let guests access our kitchen if you want special diet or if you want to cook for yourselves!
I would gladly help shape and make your travel / stay plan.
You are welcome in our home. We look forward to your presence!

We had a wonderfull stay at Frank's home in the beginning of January 2019. The flat is at Havana Centro, with restaurants and bars, and even a bank with a working ATM in the neighborhood.
Frank is very kind, and so is his wife Elaine. we also met their cute daughter, and nice cat.
Frank and Elaine helped us to catch a bus to Varadero, and also booked a casa there. We were in contact with Frank also after we left Havana, and he was always there, if we needed help during our stay in Cuba. Thank you Frank annd Elaine, for your help during our stay in Cuba. We wish you all the best in the future.

Frank is very helpfull and kind. The appartement is in centro havana. To new havana it is about 10 minute walk, 5 minute to malecon and 20/30 minute to the heart of old havana. Centro seems more harsh but we always felt safe and it was nice to walk around without people asking us to come to their restaurant etc.
Frank showed us around to find an atm and showed us the university and the breakfirst at his place is very good.
When we came back to Havana earlier than expected he helped us find a place.
Thanks for everything Frank!
Really nice host. Invited me to have delicious breakfast in his flat. The Appartment for stay was perfect for my 2 day trip
Frank is a very friendly guy who will help you organise your trip in Havana. The casa where you sleep is seperate from Frank and his family so you will have a lot of privacy.
Frank and his family were extremely good hosts, with a pleasant apartment available. I definitely recommend anyone who plans to stay in Havana to stay at this place as Frank was also very helpful in organising travel to Viñales. 5 stars!!
Staying whit Frank&Elaine was a great experiene. They are very kind&happy poeple really the embodiment of a cuban family. When i arrived the room was taken, he gave me the option of sleeping at his place or going to another casa i choosed tho stay and whit no regret. He will awnser your questions and help you whit things like taxi's and other stuff. When you go tohavana this is the place where you gotta be. Its in old havana and is the best place for a authentic cuban experience.
Great place, clean, spacious & most of all, very welcoming.
Casa is located in the Center of Havanna with a 20min walk to the old town.
Would recommend it and stay there any time again (inf act - we stayed there again on our way back).
Our last night before going back to Holland we stayed at Franks casa particular. It was the first night in Cuba that we had a whole appartement for ourselves! Since we are a doctor and psychologist, we asked if we could see a Hospital in Havana. Frank was very enthusiast and spent is whole morning guiding us through Havana and explaining about the medical care in Cuba and much more about Cuban life. Loved every minute of it. We would highly recommend staying with him. Thanks Frank!
Frank had a problem in his own house which he communicated to us well in advance. He arranged an alternative homestay which was similar in price and quality. Frank also arranged a taxi to pick us up from the AirPort. Our stay in Havana was pleasant, due to Frank. Thanks a lot!
Although he was not able to receive me
Hé arranged a perfect other place for me
