Casa Coupole is not the least expensive offering on the market but it is
original and among the safest: certified Anti-Seismic. Perfect for any length of stay, the fully-furnished Studio is 861sq feet with an open floor plan. The double bed is shielded from the combination living & dinning room and the fully equipped kitchen. Casa Coupole is not a « party house. » If you choose to stay with us, please respect the long term tenants and respect rules of good conduct.

The space
This internationally certified anti-seismic Apartment Building was unaffected by the devastating 2010 earthquake. A thorough structural evaluation of the building was conducted by the engineering firm Imbert Dominguez and given the highest possible rating. The construction system is as ingenious as it is elegant.
Two circular towers with vaulted ceilings are connected by a central stairwell and ample landings. The Duplex is on two floors (first and second). The bedrooms are on the first floor and are very well protected. The bedrooms have access to an enclosed patio- a private sanctuary. An interior spiral staircase links the bedrooms to the 2nd floor where there is a combination living-dinning room and a fully equipped kitchen and the entrance to the apartment. There are large articulated bay windows that control noise and ventilation.
Our offering is convenient, the location is pleasant with a park, shops, restaurants and groceries within walking distance. It was built by one of Haïti's leading architects. Casa Coupole will make your stay in Pétionville all the more memorable.
