In the house, there is a map of Havana, big enough to identify the places where you would like to go.
The neighborhood is safe, surprising for its variety of architectural styles, baroque, neo-gothic, neo-classical, eclectic, art nouveau, and art deco, modernist and post-modernist.

If you have the chance to stay in Randy and Fanny's casa, then do it!
Fanny was one of the nicest people we have met during our trip through cuba.
She was very caring and had a lot of good suggestions for restaurants etc. .
Furthermore, she speaks fluently Englisch, so you can talk to her about anything even if your spanish is not that good.
Definetly a big recommandation!
Very welcoming and helpful. They have a lovely family and we enjoyed every part of our stay. The breakfast was amazing and everything was very clean and well taken care of. We would without a doubt stay with them again. Thanks Fanny!
Great host. Super friendly and hospitable. Great breakfast. We really enjoyed our stay :)
We loved staying at this casa. Fanny was very helpful giving information and helping us to start in Cuba. The casa was very clean and comfortable and great breakfast.
Nous vous recommandons vivement ce couple.
Gros coup de cœur pour cette famille !!! Accueil par un couple très souriant. Vous invite immédiatement à prendre une boisson et prend le temps de converser avec vous en vous donnant un plan, les sites à ne pas manquer, les bonnes adresses pour manger ou boire un verre avec les Cubains.
Fanny est une hôte très agréable, souriante, joyeuse et arrangeante, qui jongle merveilleusement bien entre l’Espagnol, le Français et l’Anglais.
Le Logement est impeccable, chambre spacieuse et lumineuse avec une très bonne literie.
Situation géographique excellente, à deux pas du Capitole.
Si nous avons la chance de repartir à La Habana, c’est sûr, nous reprendrons avec plaisir une chambre chez Fanny et prendrons le temps de faire plus amples connaissances.
Merci encore à ce couple de nous avoir permis de clôturer notre séjour si agréablement.

From the moment I stepped in to Randy and Fanny’s home I was made to feel very welcome. A beautiful home, spacious and clean, and the location is ideal.
Fanny was a wonderful host and gave me lots of information and tips for my time in Havana. She was incredibly helpful and also went above and beyond when I was unable to get cash out from my bank account. She looked after me and helped arrange my transport when leaving Havana.
I would highly recommend staying here for anyone wanting an authentic Cuban experience. I will be coming back!
We had a great time in Casa Randy. The room was nice, with a little balcony with a view. You could see the capitolio in the distance.The location (havana centro) is great, because it felt peaceful and more spatial compared with havana vieja. Also, a lot of the sights and the romantic malecon are close and in walking distance. Fanny and Randy are really kind people. We felt so welcome. Fanny was really helpful in planning our activities and advised us some nice restaurants. Also, she told us some things about Cuban live. We won't forget our stay here. ¡Muchas gracias!
This guest awarded the host 4 hearts but didn’t leave any comments.
Great room in a great location with a great family. And Fanny's English is excellent.
If you come to Havanna you have to stay with Fanny and her family. Even tho our trip was short we could not have imagined a more genuine, warm hearted and welcoming family then this one. Fanny helped us with everything from planning our days in Havana to teaching us about the Cuban culture and ways of life. Her home is also incredibly beautiful and is in the perfect location to do everything that the city has to offer. Every morning Fanny and her husband would prepare a five star breakfast that we honestly looked forward to. We are so thankful for our experience and honestly staying at Fannys house was a big part of what made our trip such a unforgettable adventure.
