We appreciate our guests to have an ethical behavior. There are other family apartments in the building then we ask please, do not make unnecessary noises or play loud music. Smoking is not allowed in the apartment, do it at the balcony instead. Pets are not allowed.

In general Cubans are very friendly and like to talk and socialize with visitors. However, it is interesting to note that in tourist areas it is common to find some persons who try to take advantage of foreign tourists. Guests should be very careful allowing other persons into the apartment. Guests are responsible for any offense that could happen in the apartment.

This is a great apartment in a great location. On hot days, the air conditioning was greatly appreciated. The kitchen is fully equipped and Maria was kind enough to have eggs, bread, butter and water in the fridge. There was also Cuban coffee and a coffee maker. It's conveniently located across the street from the Habana Libre Hotel, where there were plenty of cabs and a place to change money and buy drinks and snacks. And the Hop On Hop Off bus had a stop right across the street. And the Malecon, Coppelia's Ice Cream and a street market were nearby, along with great restaurants (Waoo Cafe and Cafe Laurent). This is a great place to rent!

The moment you walk into Maria's apartment in centrally located Vedado, it becomes apparent why she is a super-host: it's all in the details. From the bottles of water, eggs, and bread in the fridge, to the local cell phone (loaded with 10CUCs), and well-equipped bathroom, Maria empathizes with what every visitor to Havana and her home might need and desire. Even for those of us familiar with the city, Maria's home is a home-base that rivals that of the best hotels in the city. Trust. Adriana was responsive and Lourdes, who I met as we were leaving, was charming. I can't say enough about Sweet Habana. It's a gem of a place. We can't wait to return!

Affordable and amazing, close proximity to everything. Adriana was extremely helpful, her boyfriend drove us to and from the airport. The apartment is adorable and clean. It's in a touristy area but convenient for walking places/getting taxis to anywhere.

We had an amazing time at Sweet Habana. Maria and her staff were easy to communicate with, helped arrange reservations at restaurants before our arrival, and at our request had flowers and drinks awaiting us for our friends bday. The Cuban cellphone with $10 credits helped us stay in contact w tour guides and arrange things while we explored Havana. The house was clean, well furnished, comfortable, and was great location in Vedado. We had everything we needed or wanted. We would love to stay here again.

We loved our stay at Sweet Habana! The house is extremely well located--many popular tourist destinations are within walking distance as are local restaurants and jazz clubs. In addition, it is very easy to hail a taxi for trips to Miramar, other neighborhoods or the beach. The hosts, Maria and Lourdes, are excellent! They are easily reached by phone or email and are gracious, accommodating hosts. The next time we visit Havana, we will definitely stay at Sweet Habana again!

Maria User ProfileMaria is a superhost.

I´m a Cuban retired Engineer, happily married for more than 40 years; my husband and I have two loved children and three beautiful granddaughters.

While we are living in Cozumel I would like to share my cozy apartment in Havana with other families that would care about it and would like to discover and enjoy the beauty of my city and the whole country.
