    I love this little place! And Jorge and his lovely wife Nardy are so amazing and are the cutest couple. I miss them already! Great location, cozy house and nice breakfast. Most importantly, beautiful host and hostess. Such wonderful people that make you feel welcomed and at home, and they have a great sense of humour as well. Just overall an awesome experience here. The room is clean and comfortable, breakfast (pay extra) is plenty, yummy and fresh, and the location is pretty central (35 minute walk to old Havana but there are plenty of restaurants around - try the limonada fresca at El Biky - and the university is right there). I definitely recommend this place and will come here again the next time I go to Havana! Gracias por todo, Jorge y Nardy!

    Tuve el placer de estar en esta casa linda durante los primeros 4 días de mi viaje. Jorge y su mujer son tan simpáticos, ayudan con todo (me dieron buenos consejos haha), me encantaron las conservaciones durante el desayuno (que era muy rico!). Cuando llegué ya era muy tarde y eso no fue ningún problema: siempre hay alguien en la casa para atender a los huéspedes. Muchas gracias por todo, me he sentido muy bienvenida!!

    I had the good fortune to spend several days with Jorge and Nadia in their lovely home. It is a quiet location with easy access to Old Havana and other parts of the city. They know the city well and were so kind and helpful in making my trip something I will always hold dear. The only downside was having to leave!

    Pasamos unos bonitos días juntos en casa, fue interesante saber que antes habían estado en Cuba en hoteles y esta su primera vez en casa con familia lo que hizo conocer la Cuba de los locales.

    I had the pleasure of staying with Jorge and his family for 2 and a half weeks. My first solo travel accommodation and Nadia was there to greet me with a great big hug at breakfast. We laughed despite the language barrier and she really made me feel at ease. The whole of Jorge and his family were more than willing to help out where they could. From being incredibly patient when I was working on my Spanish, prometo que practicaré! To even finding nearby accommodation for a recent friend I made in Cuba, returning to Havana early with nowhere to stay. The hospitality is second to none, thank you!

    Fue interesante compartir esos días con Annete, joven llena de dudas y deseos de comerse el mundo.
    Mi esposa Nardy siempre en los desayunos compartia buenas conversaciones mientras yo estaba por el mercado en el día a día.
    Gracias por llegar a nuestra casa, ya nos veremos nuevamente,
    Jorge y Familia

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.
