Recently renovated and painted. It has 2 bedrooms with one bath in the middle that at times (when both rooms are rented), may have to be shared. It is very open with new living room furniture. The home is located in Centro Habana. It is about a 20 minute walking distance thru Centro Habana to reach La Habana Vieja and towards El Vedado in the opposite direction. It is the same distance to the famous Malecon walking North. The area is 100% typical Cuban and is SAFE day or night. There are places to dine close by, cafeteria style, with awesome Cuban food, beer, coffee, cigarettes, etc, and at a great price. Our home is perfect for one couple, 2 couples, 3 or 4 friends or a family of 4. The price is very reasonable. (PLEASE CHECK ON THE CALENDAR BEFORE BOOKING. PRICES MAY VARY DEPENDING ON THE SEASON AND DEMAND).
There is a Cuban grocery store close by to buy groceries, water and many items of food and personal hygiene. You can rent one bedroom or both bedrooms. I live in the front thru the hall so you will have complete privacy...
THINGS TO KEEP IN MIND>>>As you can see in the pictures, the space is large enough, clean and in my view beautiful....however, please remember that Cuba is not a luxury destination! Things are still quite basic and service levels medium to low most places. Occasionally there are power outages and at times (very occasionally), the water may be cut by the city. However, I have a big reservoir tank on the roof and it should not impact our guests. Water pressure is not what is in America or many other places in the world, but it is sufficient and that is the way it is all over Cuba.
The bathroom is located between the 2 bedrooms. Therefore, when both bedrooms are rented, the one bathroom will have to be shared. The bedrooms are totally private!!! This layout works well in my view, because 90% of the times, we only have one bedroom rented and you can have the total place to yourselves. Also because normally a family of 4, 2 couples or 3 or 4 friends are the majority our guests this is a perfect set up. But those times when both rooms are rented to different guests , then that one bathroom becomes a shared bathroom!!! The bedrooms are large enough and clean. The main bedroom #1 is air conditioned but the second bedroom #2 is not. Bedroom #2 has rotating fans that keep the air circulating.
Our home is comfortable, SAFE, and clean for our guests and my family. All these things are good to keep in mind when making your decision to go to such an adventurous and magical destination as Havana!
The airport is 9 miles or 15Kms SW of the city. It takes 15 to 20 minutes via car to come home.
