Maria Luisa and Casimiro have to be the best Air BnB hosts ever! They were incredibly helpful in all aspects of getting to know Havana. The accommodations were great with our private entrance,a well equipped kitchen, bedroom and bath. All were sparkling clean. The breakfasts were fantastic with a wide assortment of delicious food. The surrounding area was nice and we enjoyed the Tapas bar located around the corner. I would highly recommend Maria Luisa and Casimiro's place as a comfortable, warm and inviting place to come back to each day. We will return.

Our stay with Maria was everything we wanted. Our hosts were accommodating, friendly and professional. The unit was cleaned daily with new sheets and towels, the apartment was in excellent shape with a gorgeous patio, small kitchen and excellent bedroom, and when we stayed an option existed for breakfast (for a small additional cost) which was fantastic. The unit doors locked and felt incredibly safe. The location is away from the major tourist centres and is a bit of a walk downtown, but very proximal to several major monuments and sights, including the university, and Necropolis, and the night life and restaurants of Vedado. The neighbourhood felt very safe, and had several small tiendas and cafeterias for food and snacks. The walk downtown is about an hour to the Capitol along some major streets and is a great way to see Cuban life in Havana. A taxi back from the Mercaderes shopping area is about 10 CUC and takes maybe 10 minutes. I would highly recommend this location to anyone looking to shy away from the tourist life and simply wants to experience the full city of Havana. We would stay here again without a second thought; Maria and her husband made our stay memorable and wonderful. There is no wifi at this location when we stayed (wifi is very limited in Cuba, even at the airport) so I would recommend a roaming data plan in order to stay in touch when you get to Cuba.

The apartment is in a safe quiet area with a few local restaurants, WiFi areas and shops. We felt very safe. The breakfast was incredible, really good value and such a good start to every day. The apartment has everything you would need and a lovely balcony. It is a short journey to the city but I would choose to stay here as it is much quieter and relaxing, really nice to come back to after spending time in the hussle and bustle of the centre. We would definitely stay here again :)

Maria Luisa's casa was a great place to start our Cuba trip in Havana. Maria was away at the time but her husband Casimiro took great care of us throughout our stay, giving us recommendations on where to eat etc. All the other reviews are 100% accurate in saying that his breakfasts are the best we had in Cuba, and a perfect way to start a day of exploring. The room and bathroom were clean and it was nice having our own space, with a balcony and small kitchenette. The only thing I would say is we found the location to be a little out of the way (it's perfect if you want to stay in just a normal Havana street away from tourist areas), but unless you can figure out the buses, Taxi's to/from Havana Vieja ended up costing us a small fortune. The views from the terrace out onto the city are incredible and all in all it was a good stay!

From the moment we arrived at Maria's, we felt welcome. She and her husband were very helpful with arranging transportation to the airport and also around the city. They have recommendations of restaurants and examples of fair prices for taxis so that we would not be overcharged. They also cooked breakfast everyday for an additional 5 cuc. The breakfast was excellent and different everyday. The view from their penthouse is incredible and a great place to relax and take in the sounds of the Havana.

This place is always booked and for good reason - it's the best place we stayed in Cuba. A beautiful terrace overlooking Havana, a delicious 5 CUC breakfast verging on gourmet it was so good and a lovely private living quarters. Tough to beat and well worth your time - stay here (I wish I could).

Cam and Maria was so loving and inviting. Their hospitality was like no other! I went to Cuba alone for my birthday and they made me feel really special. The only thing that was disappointing about the trip was being left at the airport. Eduardo's car broke down, so I had to use all the senses I had to figure my way around. However, Tulip's Penthouse was really nice and clean. The view from the patios are amazing. The breakfast made me feel like a queen! It was delicious! Cuba has absolutely no phone signal or internet connection, and getting WiFi is a hassle. The currency exchange isn't a great deal, bare that in mind. And be careful for scammers and people that will try to get over on you. But staying at Tulip's Penthouse was the best part of my trip. I loved it!
