I am the Cuba emigrant and since 2003 I rented with my wife, Marisabel Macias Despaigne, in our exclusively furnished apartment "CASA Isabel" two double rooms with direct Atlantic view, directly on the Malecón!

The small rental company has optimally restructured its residential complex to the needs of its numerous guests, so that the visitors have the best conditions to enjoy their stay undisturbed and in peace. An elegant division divides the spacious guest area to the landlord area.

It was a big challenge for me, but it shows that one can realize dreams ultimately!

Since 12 July 2013 I have my second residence in Cuba!

    Ich war sehr angenehm überrascht als ich die von mir gebuchte Unterkunft betrat und fühlte mich gleich sehr wohl.Zimmer,Aufenthaltsraum und Balkon sehr stilvoll eingerichtet und absolut sauber.Die Gastgeber Hans und Isa sind sehr nett und aufgeschlossen,haben alle Fragen umfangreich beantwortet (viele nützliche Tipps für meine Erkundungen) und wir haben sehr tolle Gespräche geführt.Das angebotene kleine Frühstück (Obst,belegtes Brötchen und hervorragender Kaffee)war genau das was ich brauchte.
    Für mich war es eine tolle Woche und ich bedanke mich noch einmal auf diesem Weg für die tolle Gastfreundschaft.
    Viele Grüße von Jürgen

    Hervorragend! Perfekte Lage mit toller Aussicht auf Havanna. Taxis direkt vor der Tür! Das Zimmer war blitzsauber und komfortabel. Bereit standen gekühlte Getränke und eine Eteksa-Karte. Das Frühstück konnte man im Zimmer genießen und wurde liebevoll zubeeitet. Hans-Wilhelm steht hilfreich zur Seite! Perfekt und absolut zu empfehlen!

    We stayed for 2 nights at Casa Isabel with our lovely hosts, Hans and Marisabel. This Casa is located on the 9th floor of the building which offers spectacular sunsets and views overlooking the Malecon and the sea. The guest rooms are tastefully divided from the host's residence. The rooms are very spacious and clean and have been renovated/updated. During our time in Cuba, we had the best shower at this Casa with hot water and good water pressure. Hans speaks good English and offered suggestions of things to do while in Havana as well as nearby delicious and very reasonably priced restaurants. Everything about our stay at Casa Isabel was perfect. Thank you Hans and Marisabel.

    Wir uns sehr wohl gefühlt bei Isabel & Hans Wilheln. Ein geschmackvoll dekoriertes, helles, freundliches und luftiges Apartment im neunten Stock eines Hochhauses in Vedado mit authentischer Atmosphäre und Malecon Blick vom Balkon. Strategisch günstige Lage zu Wlan, und Lokalen. Wir sind während unseres Urlaubs in Kuba mehrmals hierher als Gäste gewesen. Die stillvollen Zimmern mit Bad waren sehr gemütlich, alles sehr sauber, aber das Beste war die sehr freundliche und individuelle Betreuung durch Hans Wilhelm und seiner reizende Frau Isabel. Jeder Rückkehr nach Havana war dadurch wie nach Hause kommen.
    Wir danken euch sehr liebe Isa und Hans und hoffen noch lange in Kontakt zu bleiben!

    ベダード地区(新市街)です。
    ホストのハンスさんは親切で、素敵な方です(^^) 事前に何度かメールでやり取りもしてくださり、安心して訪れることができました。
    オススメのレストランも何軒か教えてくださります。(どこも美味しく、リーズナブルでした!)
    部屋は広くとても清潔で、温かいシャワーも出ます。鏡台もあるので女の私には嬉しかったです。
    マンションはオートロックで、部屋の中にはセキュリティボックスもあります。
    毎朝7:30〜8:00までの30分間、部屋で無料Wi-fiが使えるのも助かりました。

    マンションの隣には地球の歩き方に載っていない新しい(?)Wi-fiスポットがあります!(通信速度も他の場所に比べてかなり速い)
    その前にはETECSAカードの売り場があり、並んでも2.3人ですし、5時間のカードも販売してますので、こちらでの買い溜めをオススメします。
    前はスーパー、下のガソリンスタンドには24時間営業のコンビニ、近くにレストラン・バーも多くあり非常に便利です。
    目の前のメリアコイバホテル(Melia Cohiba) からは長距離バスが出てますのでわざわざビアズールのバスターミナルまで行かなくてもよかった点も助かりました。

How do I book?

Contact the host about your stay - tell them a little about yourself, why you are staying and ask any questions you have about their homestay. You will be able to book immediately after sending your message.

You then pay your host on arrival or as stated by your host on their profile and agreed by you on booking. Please be cautious if a host requests advance payment if its not included on their profile. Our hosts have been advised that if they wish to request advance payment they must make this explicit in their profile. We do not recommend the use of Money gram or Western Union.

When can I share my contact details?

Host and Guest email address, phone number and home address will be exchanged in a confirmation email sent to both immediately after a booking is completed. It's against our policy for Guests and Hosts to exchange direct contact details via our messaging system.
