    I would recommend this home stay to anyone because of two things. One Juan Carlos's went out of his way to make my visit to Cuba a good one. Second the room we had was spotless it was everything I needed.

    Juan Carlos and his wonderful wife were the perfect hosts! We were blessed to be their first Australian guests (another arrived while we were away exploring the rest of the country). Their rooms are immaculate, breakfasts delicious and they give you a lot of time to help you understand how to get around and what to see. The fridge was well stocked with reasonably priced water, beer and wine. They had a wad of tourist information for us when we arrived and we were confidently on a local bus within a couple of hours of arrival. They let us leave our bags with them while we did a road trip and we finished off our time in Cuba with another couple of nights there. Do yourself a favour and stay with them - please pass on my regards if you do. Enjoy your time in Cuba. It is amazing!

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 199 $£€ 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.
