I am renting a double bedroom with private bathroom in my house where I live with my 13 year old son, offering guests an authentic experience of Cuban life.

This comfortable bedroom is situated within a modern apartment in a residential district of Havana Centre. The apartment is located on the third floor of a 3 storey building (no lift).
The air conditioned room features a double bed, chest of drawers and a private bathroom. Other areas are shared and include a living room with flat-screen TV and a fully equipped kitchen.

There is a spacious rooftop terrace where guests can enjoy the sunshine or relax at the end of the day.

    Yari is the best, there is nothing else we say about her. I traveled all over the world and styed in many places but Yari is the best host I met. She is kind and so helpful in every possible way. We stayed in Havana with Yari on arrival first 2 nights and then went of to travel around Cuba and we had another accommodation booked for last 3 nights in Havana before leaving but we cancelled the other booking and went to stay with Yari, after that experience we didnt want to be anywhere else. If I manage to go back to Cuba I will deffo stay with Yari. And the location is amazing. Walking distance to everything you want and need.

    Yaris casa is located near the old centre of Havana. You can park in front of the house (with camera security). The room is clean and the day starts well with a good breakfast. Thank you Yaris for your hospitality!

    Ciao a tutti, sono appena tornato e volevo lasciare una recensione,
    dopo aver prenotato la prima notte direttamente dal sito ne ho prenotate altre 3 la padrona si casa si chiama Yaris e una donna molto disponibile ci ha aiutato a fare delle telefonate, l'ultimo giorno ci ha dato anche la possibilità di fare una doccia nella sua abitazione personale.
    la casa è molto pulita e lei gestisce anche le altre che sono nella stessa palazzina .
    le note negative sono il prezzo 38cuc che per Cuba e alto io le altre volte ho soggiornato a l'avana ho speso la metà e chiaro che ho trovato anche tante case sporche, l'altra nota negativa e la zona in quella particolare ho trovato molta sporcizia strade rotte macerie e spazzatura maleodorante.

    Die Unterkunft ist zentral in Havanna gelegen. Alle Sehenswürdigkeiten sind in kurzer Zeit fußläufig zu erreichen. Das Zimmer ist sauber und zweckmäßig eingerichtet. Das Frühstück mit frischem Obst, Brot mit Auflage, Omelett, Kaffee und Saft war ein guter Start in den Tag. Yaris und Lisbeth waren sehr hilfbereit bei allen Fragen rund um den Aufenthalt in Havanna.

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.

When do I pay?

Once a host confirms they're available, you can go ahead and pay the 15% booking fee (maximum of 250 $£€ for longer term bookings) using a choice of payment methods: Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Maestro, Laser, JCB & PayPal (not available in certain countries). 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.
