About the Homestay
We are a family of four, my husband, Reddy, my two children Randy and Rachel (8 and 10 years old) and I living in Centro Habana in a Fresh, clean and quiet house located on the first floor (30 steps) with three comfortable rooms because of their amplitude for rent. Two of them have tween beds and bathroom en-suite, the third room has one doble bed and one single bed. The three rooms have big windows that leaves the fresh breeze get into them.
As We live in a céntrica area of the city, there might be some noise at night, as people enjoy hanging out late at night, so if you are a sensitiv person to noise, for a better sleep, bring your head phones.
There is cold and hot running water in the bathrooms twenty-four hours a day with a relaxing shower.
English, French and Italian are spoken in the house.
If you need a taxi at your arrival at the International Airport “Jose Marti”, don’t hesitate on asking for it as it will be at your disposition.
Breakfast is served between 8 and 10 for an extra cost in our terraza prior coordination with a nice view to the city.
For those interested in visiting other provinces, contacts in other houses can be made.
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. Streets that are both, ancient and modern, extraordinary and authentic, just waiting to be rediscovered. You don’t need to take a taxi to go to the most frequent visited places by Cuban and foreign people.

Fanny, Reddy y Cristina, hacen que este alojamiento tenga todas las características para que tu estadía sea inolvidable, su amabilidad y dedicación por los detalles hacen la diferencia frente a cualquier otra casa, siempre están dispuestos a ayudar y a indicarte las mejores opciones para disfrutar la Habana. Excelente locación, muy cerca de las mejores sitios del casco histórico.
Las habitaciones son muy amplias, con aire acondicionado y bano privado. Camas super confortables con colchones nuevos.
El desayuno se sirve en la terraza con un ambiente campestre espectacular, aire natural y vista al barrio.
Cada mañana tomamos el mejor café de Cuba, frutas frescas variadas, huevos cocidos siempre de manera diferente y a nuestro gusto, ensalada de estación, pan, mermeladas y zumos de frutas naturales, todo preparado al momento. Lo mejor, las conversaciones durante el desayuno que nos ayudó a entender mejor sobre el acontecer en Cuba.
Sin duda alguna recomiendo esta casa y con mucho placer regresaremos.
Myself and my friend had an amazing stay at Fanny’s home (we stayed with her for 3 nights). Fanny is an incredibly kind and helpful host; she helped us with money exchange, recommendations for sight-seeing / food / drink and organising transportation. She has a lovely home, located in a prime spot for walking around central and old Havana. We strongly recommend staying with her!
Fanny y su mamá son las anfitrionas ideales, una casa acojerdora con un recibimiento excelente. Desde el primer momento te aconseja qué partes ver de la havana, que consejos debes seguir y todo aquello que necesites! Jovial, actual y encantadora! La casa y habitación limpia, moderna y con aire con un baño ideal. muy bien situada. Los desayunes en la azotea de 10! sin duda aconsejaremos!
Perfect! sitio centrico, excelente desayuno y todas las facilidades del mundo. Un placer!
This guest awarded the host 5 hearts but didn’t leave any comments.
Fanny is a great host! We felt really at home and comfortable around her family. Her mom is really nice too and it was great to meet her (very well behaved!) kids. For the Dutchies: bring stroopwafels, they love them!
She was our first host in Cuba and really gave us great tips and warned us for scams, as well as the planned black-outs in Cuba. We felt more prepared when we left Havana for Viñales.
The breakfast was great as well and more than enough to get us through the mornings. Location is perfect: near Malecón, the central park and not far from old town.
If we ever come back to Havana we definitely will stay again with Fanny
Ubicación perfecta, paralela al Paseo del Prado, muy cerca de la Calle Obispo y el Capitolio. Fanny nos hizo una muy buena presentación sobre la Habana, nos dio consejos muy útiles de como interactuar con la ciudad y los cubanos. La habitación, al tener los techos muy altos, es muy fresca, la cama era muy amplia y cómoda, el baño estaba en perfecto estado, buena presión de agua y todo muy limpio. Los desayunos los hicimos en la azotea, muy ricos y abundantes. Una familia encantadora, con dos niños muy majos.
Alles beviel ons: de locatie, de hygiëne van de ruimtes, het bed (heerlijke matrassen, kussens overtrekken etc.), de airco en (harde) douche(straal). Alles was er wat we nodig hadden en de ruimte van de kamer en badkamer waren ruim genoeg.
Iedere ochtend bespraken we tijdens het fantastisch ontbijt wat we de dag daarvoor gedaan hebben en of ze nog tips had. We voelden ons echt thuis bij Fanny en haar moeder. Het enige is dat je wel tegen rumoer van de straat en hanen moet kunnen, maar dat hoort erbij.
We loved our stay with Fanny. She and her mom were very friendly, honest and helpful. The rooms were big and clean. And the breakfast was perfect. We can recommend this casa particular! 5 hearts from us for you, Fanny.
Our stay in this casa particular was amazing. The room is beautiful, clean and comfortable. The breakfast is delicious and the host was always there if we needed her. Thank you, Christina!
