    This is really a wonderfull place in crowded Havana. Excellent service, great food, wonderful garden and nicely designed rooms. Jorge and the crew did all they could to make us the greatest stay at the casa. Highly recommended!!! You won't be disappointed

    Jaun was a superb host, providing delicious meals, which he clearly loves doing and as a bonus was great company. After a long day exploring, it was wonderful to slip into the plunge pool to cool off and relax in the lovely, lush garden with one of Juan's special drinks. Juan has lovingly, and carefully restored the house to comfortable splendour. Although, some people from the UK or USA might feel a little concerned about the appearance of the neighbourhood, you really should not; neighbours are out in the streets relaxing in the evening, chatting and children are playing and it's really safe. The house is clean, comfortable and quiet and after a day out and about, we found it was a quiet, relaxing retreat to recharge our batteries. Juan could not do enough to advise and help us.

How do I book?

Contact the host to check their availability and ask them any questions you have about staying with them. Once the host confirms they’re available for your dates, you can complete your booking.

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.
