Spacious house only 60m from the beach. Ideal for the family. Comfortable bedrooms, with air-conditioning. Bathrooms with hot and cold water. Furniture and style from the 40's. Large and cool porch, great yard with fruit trees. Parking space for up to 3 cars.

The space

This is one of the most ample and comfortable houses in the area of beaches of the capital. By car, it's only 30 minutes away from the historic center of Havana.

From the international airport of Havana, you can take a taxi directly, the cost of the trip should be between 40 and 50 CUC (local currency roughly equivalent to the USD). We advice to withdraw money directly in CUC at the ATM in the airport, or to exchange some money, but not much, since you can do it later at the bank, which is just across the street.

Guest access

Guests will have shared access to the porch, the living room, the dining room, the kitchen and the yard.

The house actually has four rooms, you can choose your room depending on the kind of bed arrangement desired.

Breakfast is not included, but can be provided at an extra charge.

Gilberto and Blanca were great hosts! They gave great tips and good recommendations. The house is big with lots of space to relax. The house is literally across the street from Guanabo beach. Guanabo is a nice beach in itself and has a nice feel since there are a lot of locals. The house is also located very close to Playa Santa Maria. A beautiful beach that has transparent blue water and white sands. You can take a carriage ride for 3CUC.

Gilberto and Blanca were great hosts and very helpful when we wanted to rent bicycles. The house is so inviting and the garden is beautiful.

We had a great time staying in Guanabo, and only 100 m from the beach. The apartment has at least three large private bedrooms each with their own bathroom. You can enjoy a very delicious breakfast of fruit, eggs, bread, fresh juices, and coffee for only $5 per person. Blanca and Gilberto, speak english very well and are just the sweetest! They are happy to help in any way possible as hosts. The area is very safe and you can connect to wifi just a few blocks down at the local park. The only way anyone in Cuba can access the internet is via public wifi zones and the use of an access code card. You need to purchase the internet card first at a local Etecsa store. The cost is $1.50/hour and don't forget to bring your passport when you buy the cards! Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't - that's Cuba. The bed in our room was the most comfy one we slept on while in Cuba. The bed is queen size. You have your own AC unit in your room to make it as cold as you like. You can walk to the beautiful Santa Maria beach or take a quick horse drawn carriage for $3. It is about 2km, or about a 30 minute walk. There is the Guanabo beach right in front of your door, but it is a little more crowded. We highly recommend staying with Blanca & Gilberto!

Das Haus liegt in ca. 100m Entfernung zum Strand - schade, dass der ziemlich vermüllt war. Die Gastgeber sind sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit, sprechen beide auch ordentlich englisch. War eine schöne Zeit...

Response from Gilberto:
Muchas Gracias por su evaluacion sobre nuesra casa y nuestra atencion. Con relacion a lo que dice sobre la basura en el camino a la playa pensamos que fue una situacion especifica en esos dias que estuvo lloviendo mucho en la playa y se acumulo mucha basura arrastrada por la lluvias desde la parte alta del pueblo. Sentimos que esto haya sucedido porque no es un problema inherente a las condiciones de la casa ni con la atencion a los huespedes. Un saludo de nuestra parte para ud y su esposa de Blanca y Gilberto
