Hello, I am Marilin and I welcome you to my home, a very clean and airy house, high strut, eclectic style.
Ideal accommodation for families and also for students.
Currently being the hostess of the hostel is my job, I love doing it, being able to offer the best of myself and meet people from other countries and cultures, share with them and make them spend a pleasant and unforgettable stay.
I live with my 18-year-old daughter, who is currently studying medicine at the university.
I am very cheerful and enterprising, and very talkative and good listener. I like animals a lot and I love nature.
The neighborhood is clean and quiet and very well located. I am in favor of diversity.

    Very nice and clean room, great location! GREAT and and helpful hostess; she helped me with getting to know cuba, it’s people and she was happy to explain everyting to me about cuban customs. I loved her cats and it was very nice that she let me use her kitchen. This homestay really felt like HOME and I learned so much from my host and her daughter. Will try to visit this homestay again for sure!

    My partner and I have been to six different Casas in Cuba, Marilin's casa is the best experience we have ever had. She is a fantastic host who shares a lot of good information about Havana. She is a very kind, generous, pleasant, and helpful host, I absolutely recommend her and her Casa to everyone!

    Hola Marlin, fue muy placentero y comodo habernos hospedado en tú casa, en las dos oportunidades en que estuvimos, las habitaciones comodas, buenos espacios, limpios. El apartaaestudio con las comodidades básicas para una estancia de varios días. Aunque es un tanto distante de la Habana "vieja". está muy bien situado en una zona residencial, tranquila y con buen acceso a transporte publico.
    Marilin una muy buena anfitriona, presta a servir, a escuchar y sobre todo con quien se puede tener amenas pláticas sobre la cotidianidad de la vida cubana. La relación precio- servicio es es excelente. Espero volver muy pronto. Gracias, saludos desde Colombia.

    Nous avons séjourné 2 nuits chez Marilin. Elle est d'un très bon accueil, la chambre est confortable. Elle est dans un bon quartier de la Havane, loin du brouhaha du centre et c'est plaisant. Petit déjeuné très copieux.

    Marilin ist eine herzliche Gastgeberin. Die Zimmer und Badezimmer waren sehr sauber. Das mit Liebe vorbereitete Frühstück wurde uns auf der Terrasse serviert. Wir verbrachten unsere 1.Nacht von unserer Reise in diesem Casa und waren sehr zufrieden. Herzlichen Dank, Marilin, für diesen entspannten Start! Alles Gute!

    Hola Marilin, muchas gracias por tu hospitalidad. Nos sentimos muy cómodos en su casa y nos gustaría disfrutar de su hospitalidad pronto.

    La casa de Marilin se encuentra en una zona residencial agradable y tranquila. Las habitaciones están limpias y bien mantenidas y tienen aire acondicionado. Particularmente notable es el hermoso balcón grande. Todas las mañanas disfrutamos del delicioso y saludable desayuno de Marlin. Marlin es una anfitriona amable, muy atenta y solícito.

    Mi estancia en la casa de Marilin fue maravillosa. La ubicación es perfecta, los precios aún mejor. La casa está en perfectas condiciones y totalmente equipada con aire acondicionado. Es súper bonita. Limpieza absoluta y un porche maravilloso donde disfrutas de los deliciosos desayunos que Marilin prepara para tí.¿ Y que decir de Marilin? A nosotros nos ayudó a organizar todo un tour por la isla ya que tiene muchos contactos de confianza. Es súper atenta, esta muy preparada para todo lo que necesites. Nos cuido y nos mimo todo el tiempo. Conocimos a una gran anfitriona y una amiga para toda la vida. Muchas gracias por todo. Ánimo a todos a que disfruten de este hogar. Os sentiréis como en casa

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.

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.
