I live in a large house that has three rooms, but I only rent one, with air conditioning, private bathroom and a small refrigerator. I live alone with my 15-year-old daughter, whose name is Rocío. I live on the first floor of Industria Street no. 110 between Colón and Trocadero, Havana Center.

The house has an outside balcony overlooking the neighborhood, which is very popular; spacious room, hall, dining room, hallway, kitchen and a rooftop above the house, which also the guest can access if desired. There is a table where you can have breakfast or sit down, and there is also a stationary bike where you can do exercises. In the house there is internet access, through a connection by modem.

The property is located in a very central place, two blocks from the Prado and three from the Malecon Havana; near the Museum of the Revolution (former Presidential Palace), Central Park, the Gran Teatro de La Habana Alicia Alonso, hotels, cafes, restaurants and the Historical Center of Havana, where you can reach on foot.

I can locate taxis to the guests and manage location in houses in the provinces of the country.

As a courtesy I also offer guests a free breakfast for the first day of their arrival at the house. This breakfast includes: coffee, milk, a fruit juice of the season, an omelet with two toasts (or scrambled eggs) with butter, or sandiwich of cheese or ham, plus some typical food of the country. Also, in case you wish, I offer you a free, one hour tour, through significant sites of the Historic Center of Havana, in Spanish. Once at home we agree on the day and time of the trip, which will be very attractive.

    Ein absolutes MUSS in Havanna! Wunderschöner, perfekt erhaltener Altbau mit unglaublich hohen Decken in super Lage zwischen Prado, Malecon und Italia. Gastgeberin ist super nett und spricht Englisch. Das Frühstück sehr gut. Zimmer sauber, mit Klimaanlage und heißer Dusche.

    I really got excited with these beautiful words. Thank you Franziska and your friend for these compliments. I am very pleased that they felt comfortable at home. I think that is the best joy you can have. My purpose is for visitors to feel at home and to guide and support them in everything in my hands. Again, thank you very much!!!!

Creo que ese es el mejor regocijo que se puede tener. Mi propósito es que los visitantes se sientan como en su propia casa y orientarlos y apoyarlos en todo lo que esté en mis manos. De nuevo, MUCHAS GRACIAS!!!!

    Teresa was amazing, this was a great stay!
    She organized a pick up from the airport and then a drop off at the end of the trip, and her breakfasts were top notch!
    The location was great as you could walk everywhere, also there is a really cheap Cuban restaurant around the corner called Dos Pelotes which was the cheapest place to eat in the city we found.
    Teresa doesn't speak a lot of English but if you don't know any Spanish you can still manage, we did :)
    Thanks Teresa!

    Gracias Mick y Enma por palabras tan lindas. Yo fui muy feliz en los días en que ustedes estuvieron en la casa. Siempre les dije que los iba a extrañar y así ha sido: los he echado de menos!!! Son dos muchachos geniales. Saben que aquí me tienen de manera incondicional.
    Un abrazo fuerte para los dos y mucha suerte en sus proyectos personales,
    Teresa

    Staying with Teresa was wonderful! She was extremely helpful and made sure we knew the best places to go as well as what prices were fair. She gave us directions on how to get to the beach and even packed us a lunch for that day. She is very friendly and made us feel like we were at home and part of her family. If I ever return to Havana, I will definitely be staying with her again.

    Der Aufenthalt bei Teresa war sehr schön, da sie eine sehr bemühte, liebevolle und offene Person ist, trotz der ungewohnten Umstände in Havanna hat sie ihr bestes gegeben, um uns den Aufenthalt so angenehm wie möglich zu gestalten. Die Unterkunft an sich war sauber und gepflegt, weswegen ich die Unterkunft nur weiter empfehlen kann.

    Anna y Gaby, estoy muy agradecida por sus palabras y me siento feliz por haber puesto un granito de arena a que tuvieran unas felices vacaciones en mi Cuba.
    El verdadero premio es para ustedes, que me llenaron de vida, me estimularon y me hicieron ganar en dos nuevas amigas que espero volver a ver algún día.
    Y cada vez que lo deseen yo estaré aquí para brindarles todo mi apoyo.
    Un abrazote y todo mi cariño para las dos,

    Teresa est une femme super, elle a pu répondre à toutes nos questions, nous guider et nous informer sur bien d’autres choses encore... Ses petits déjeuners sont copieux et goûteux ! La chambre est spacieuse, propre et agréable grâce à la climatisation, la lumière, l’eau courante...
    Bref notre séjour chez elle c’est très bien passé.

    Gracias por todo Teresa ! Un beso.

    Min til stedene værende hos Teresa og hennes datter. Var veldig bra, jeg følte meg skikkelig hjemme. Ble også mere kjent i Cubansk historie siden Teresa er journalist for Havana kultur avis.
    Hennes hus var kjempe vakkert og fint nabolag.
    Jeg kommer virkelig savnet denne familien mye.
    Jeg ble veldig godt tatt varer på. Rommene var rent og bra sted å være.
    Jeg anbefaler sterk å overnatte hos henne.

    Muchas Gracias Bjørn, para mí fue un verdadero placer conocerlos a ti y a Anne. Tú en particular eres un muchacho admirable, muy trabajador y con quien da gusto hablar. Coneversando contigo aprendí muchas cosas sobre Noruega, y si te sentiste bien en la casa, entonces yo estoy satisfecha y feliz porque ese fue precisamente mi propósito: que te sintieras como en tu propia casa. Siempre serán bienvenidos aquí, tú y Anne. Gracias por su visita y por tu amistad.

    The Teresa's house is not an anonymous hotel, but it's your house! Teresa is lovely, she gives you all her support and help you in everything! The breakfast was wonderful and various. The room is nice, with private bathroom and air conditional. The position is perfect and safe (1 minute from El Paseo del Prado and 10 minute from El Capitolio). I recommend if you want a real cuban house! If I come back to Havana, I will reserve in this house for sure.

    I loved Teresa before I even met her. She emailed me straight after I booked to stay with her asking me if she could do anything to help me plan my trip. Once I was certain how long I would be staying in Cuba she responded with an itinerary that I might want to follow for my 3 week stay. She then phoned and booked my accommodation for me, meaning I had nothing left to do but sit back and enjoy my holiday! Teresa is an amazing host, friendly and an incredible women. I felt at home instantly. Her home is neat and clean and the room has everything you could want. The breakfast she cooked for me at 5CUC per day (but the first one is on her) was amazing- a cup of fruit, fruit juice, eggs and bread as well as fried bananas or potatoes. I often didn’t eat again until the evening it was so good! If you’re coming to Havana I recommend you stay with Teresa, she will make sure you have everything you need and will help you plan the rest of your holiday. I can’t wait to meet her again!

    Alice, de verdad que no encuentro casi palabras para responder a esta evaluación que me has hecho. Se me ha erizado la piel a medida que la iba leyendo. Es cierto todo lo que dices, pues para mí es muy importante contribuir a que quienes lleguen a la casa la sientan como suya y aportar también a que su estancia sea feliz. Sé que no es lo mismo mirar desde afuera a Cuba que estando aquí, y como vivo aquí tengo una idea de los sitios de interés histórico-cultural y de ocio, en playas o lugares abiertos, que son preferidos por los turistas. Creí entonces que una manera de poder hacerte feliz en tus vacaciones sería ayudándote en la programación de tu viaje y entonces pensé en sitios que pudieran atraerte. Estando en Cuba resulta más fácil hacer contacto con otros anfitriones y recomendarte a ti, de manera especial, pues eres una muchacha muy respetuosa, muy interesada en conocer sobre el país, y pienso que eres merecedora de disfrutar de unas buenas vacaciones en esta isla caribeña.
    Te deseo lo mejor del mundo y sé que te convertirás en una excelente doctora. Espero que no pase mucho tiempo para que volvamos a encontrarnos. Ha sido un placer el tenerte en la casa; puedes regresar cuando lo desees.
    Un abrazo fuerte y me siento muy feliz por tus palabras!!!
