About this listing
Our home is the respite we know you are looking for. In a city known for its vibrant music and culture, we invite you to stay with us just off downtown in a safe, secure and private air-conditioned room with its own washroom and kitchen. Your suite is on the second private floor with full access to the beautiful terrace, where we have two hammocks and a covered roof. You may rest here- dine, relax, read and soak up the fresh seaside air. The view is gorgeous, day or night! YES WE HAVE WIFI!
Our suite features contemporary styling mixed with treasured Cuban-carved wood bed and chest of drawers. The room is air-conditioned and also has a large window facing the balcony so you can relax with the fresh Cuban breeze at night if that makes you sleep more comfortably. There are curtains over the windows to draw over to limit the light so you can sleep in if you want. In the kitchen, a table with chairs is the perfect office space if you want to get to work on the next great novel, or simply lay out the map and plan your trip. We also have a fridge for your snacks or beverages in the space, and a sink to quickly wash up your plates and utensils. We have some of the basic dishes you will need to make a quick snack as well.
The suite is self-contained and secure, with a locked door and a patio that also locked at night. The entire outdoor terrace of the house is available for your leisure and is the only place where smoking is allowed in the home. We welcome you to also come downstairs and use the living room to relax and visit with us.
Interaction with guests
If you'd like to converse with real Cubans (in English, francais, espanol) we're happy to share and discuss the world around us. We are passionate about many different things, including history, politics, social issues, travel, music, dance and LIVING!
Other things to note
We run the apartment as a casa particular, which means we offer meals for our guests in addition to the private suite. We love to cook and the food is local, nutritious and flavourful. We are happily known for our cooking, in a positive way! We will happily accommodate gluten-free, vegan, vegetarian and other dietary accommodations.
There are three little dogs, one little cat and two little turtles in the house. The dogs and cat live downstairs with us and won't be in your suite. You're welcome to play with them or avoid them!
There is no smoking in the bedroom; it's one of our only requirements of our guests. If you care to smoke, we ask you please keep your smoking to the open-air terrace.
We hope you like dogs! They are friendly and will play with you (indeed, they love to play fetch!) They are quiet at night and will not disturb your sleep.
While we welcome you and your significant other or travel companion, we ask that you do not bring your "new Cuban friends" over to stay the night. It is a matter of security and requirement of Cuban law that we register every guest upon arrival.

I love to meet people and learn about their culture, their language, and their ideas for making the world a better place. I am most happy in the kitchen or in the garden - either way, I get my hands a bit dirty doing what I love. Don't worry I wash them before I start cooking!
