About the Homestay
We live in a third floor apartment. A Fresh, clean and quiet house with three comfortable rooms because of their amplitude for rent. Two of them have a queen size bed and a single one. They both have a balcony that leaves the fresh breeze get into your room.
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 bathroom twenty-four hours a day with a relaxing shower.
The third room also has one double bed and one single bed, bath ensuite.
English, French and Italian are spoken in the house.
The living room in Casa Randy is quite large and it has a balcony with a beautiful view of the Capitol building, and also a view of Sevilla Hotel where many famous people have stayed in and also Parque Central Hotel with its modernist architecture.
The dining room is also large and has a capacity for eight diners. It has two large windows that allow the tropical fresh air in.
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, 5 cuc per person.
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 und ihre Familie sind super nett, großzügig und hilfsbereit.
Wir waren das erste Mal auf Kuba und Fanny hat uns ausführlich alles wichtige Informationen über Kuba erzählt. Sie hat uns viele geheim Tipps gegeben und konnte alle unsere Fragen beantworten. Wir haben uns wie zu Hause gefült.
Ich empfehle jedem der nach Kuba kommt bei Fanny und ihrer Familie zu bleiben.
Outstanding. The best in Habana.
Chez Fanny,on ne trouve pas le grand confort mais un accueil très chaleureux,une chambre très propre et un petit-déjeuner soigné. Nous recommandons cette adresse pour la relation avec Fanny qui aime entretenir son français et qui sait vous donner de bons conseils pour découvrir La Havane.
A very friendly and hospitable family. We were well received and on request they had arranged a taxi from the airport to their location in advance. We immediately felt at home. Fanny helps you with everything where necessary. We stayed with them the first days in Havana and visited them the last day. That says enough! It feels just like family. When you stay in Havana, you should definitely be with Fanny and her family.
Fanny is a very friendly host and was always helpful. She gave good information about excursions and transport connection (bus, taxi collectivo). The accommodation is in a very good location next to the Prado and just a few walking minutes to the “Parquet Central”, “Capitolio”, “Museo de la Revolución”, “Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes” and “La Habana Vieja” (Old Havanna). The room was clean and the breakfast big.
Fanny und ihre Familie haben viel viel mehr als fünf Herzen verdient. Wenn ihr den perfekten Gastgeber sucht, hier ist sie. Hilfe bei allen Fragen die man so haben kann. Danke für alles
Fanny is the most perfect human being in the world. I couldn’t speak more highly of her. She was like our Cuban mum whilst we were travelling from Australia.
Fanny & her family were very great hosts. Very warm welcome, good recommendations and nice and funny chats. Very good breakfast, clean rooms in the center of Havanna.
This guest awarded the host 5 hearts but didn’t leave any comments.
