The greatest thing about this house was the house staff! From Moro to Osvaldo and the rest of the staff, they were very friendly and helpful! I must say Osvaldo was especially GREAT! The house is located in Santos Suarez, which isn't exactly close to Old Havana so we had to spend a little more money on cabs. The house is located closer to Fabrica de Arte which is a plus! If we were not able to get a taxi, the owner would graciously drive us for a small fee. They cooked breakfast for us for 5 CUC per day, however the owner didn't go shopping on Saturday for Sunday breakfast so we were without breakfast that day. Just make sure to tell them way ahead of time what days you want breakfast so they can go shopping before the markets close. I guess they do not go food shopping for the allotted amount of time of your stay. The cleanliness of the house was good. They would tidy up our rooms every morning after we left the house. Unfortunately, the first night we slept in the house one of us was bitten by BED BUGS. We were hoping it was something else but we found an actual bed bug on the second day and took pictures. We spoke to the owner about it but unfortunately he didn't seem to grasp the concept or severity of having bed bugs. It seemed as if they equated bed bugs to mosquitos and we tried to explain that they are not as easily contained. We also asked them to fumigate the rooms for an immediate solution but we couldn't confirm that it actually happened and one of the housemates was indeed bitten again. Overall, we had a good stay but the location was a challenge and the bed bugs were a huge negative.

Dear Mojibola, thank you for sharing your experiences and it may be a missunderstanding between you and Ernesto the owner about the bed bugs. We will wish the comunication will be easier between both parts for next time, Thank you.

Monica arranged for our wonderful stay here at Ernesto's house while we were in Havana. We could not have asked for a better place to stay. Ernesto and his staff were absolutely the best! They made certain that we had whatever we needed. They arranged for transportation from the airport to the casa, taxi rides into Havana and arranged transportation to Trinidad. We loved having the pool to come home to each afternoon to cool off and relax. The breakfast was truly a treat each morning and was served on the covered outstide patio where we were surrounded by beautiful and lush landscaping. I highly recommend staying here while in Havana you won't be disappointed. Thank you Monica, Ernesto and your entire staff...simply the best, we can't wait to return! Darla

We stayed here with five people for five days. The property is fifteen minute drive from most attractions, restaurants and shopping. One of the staff members Osvaldo went above and beyond for us. Went with us to Old Havana and showed us around. He really took our trip to another level and is an unforgettable gentleman. We made a lot of use of the pool area and game room. A great place to stay if you have a big group.

This place was amazing! I don't even know where to start. There were 6 of us, and we stayed for four days. Security We were surprised and pleased to find out that there was someone available 24 hours a day to help us with whatever we needed, call taxis, get pool towels, etc. Ernesto, Oswaldo and Morro were the gentlemen that helped us and they were all so incredibly kind and helpful. Amenities The house itself is beautiful. They clean it daily! There are also a couple of fridges stocked with water, soda, juice, wine and beer. There's no need to fret over finding or buying bottled water. There is also a pool room with full bar that they opened every evening. It felt like we had our own hotel! The room also has a tv with music videos (and karaoke). We had so much fun. The pool is super clean, as is the jacuzzi. We opted to have the in-house breakfast every morning. It was so delicious and refreshing to eat it outside on the patio. They can even arrange to get food delivered to the house from a nearby restaurant. Location The house is about 10 minutes away from the city center by cab. Whoever was running security would call us cabs as we needed -- we never had a problem. You definitely can't walk to Old Havana from here, but we didn't have an issue with that. For airport transport, Monica arranged to have people pick us up, and the house staff arranged for our departure. Super easy. In general, you should stay here. It was the best airbnb experience I've ever had. :D

Great stay!! We were a family of 8 and had the property to ourselves, all apartments large, spacious and clean. The pool and communal areas are lovely. All staff were fantastic. Amenities are great. You need to get taxis in to town and the in room fridges with cola, beer etc are expensive but welcome for the convienuence. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend.

Best airbnb I have ever stayed in!!! Ernesto is a wonderful host and made us all feel so welcome. The house is clean, big, safe, and beautiful. I traveled with 8 friends and there was never an issue regarding bathrooms or enough bed space. The villa has everything you may need and is stocked with beer, water, juice & soda (which was awesome considering we didn't see any local markets to buy these). The daily breakfasts outdoor by the pool were also a nice plus! (these are all additional $$$ but very reasonable). The Villa is also equipped with a 24 hr staff that is there to help you with anything you may need. They were so friendly and we don't know what we would have done without them! They called us taxis, made sure all of our plans ran smoothly, and made excellent recommendations. Our rooms were cleaned daily as well as the pool. It was my birthday and Ernesto and the staff got me a beautiful cake as well as a bracelet. We couldn't have been more lucky on our first trip to Cuba. We will definitely be returning! This place is truly a hidden gem, 10/10 recommend!

When Airbnb arrived in Cuba my wife and I believed it would be a tremendous opportunity for those that were already renting a spare bedroom, a part of their house or their entire home to connect with people from other parts of the world that were in search of lodgings. But we wondered how, in a country as internet challenged as Cuba, would a web based company whose strongest selling point is quick and easy communication work? And how would these homeowners who’ve been mostly isolated from the modern world provide the level of care that these travelers expected?

When my wife lost her job and my sister could no longer bear hers we began thinking seriously about how we could bring together our collective work experience and training to provide the link between able and willing, but not ready Cuban homeowners and Airbnb, this is how our journey began.

Today Rentas Monica is composed of a small group of professionals whose primary goal is to market the best accommodations Cuba has to offer. We have combined our varied academic backgrounds, a strong sense of customer service and our past travel experiences in and out of Cuba to develop a set of exacting standards that each homeowner we represent must comply with in order to provide guests with a home away from home experience.

However, Cuba is a very different country, standards you could be used to are not always possible. Shortages, outages, inefficiencies are common here, but so are the smiles and affection of the Cuban people.

Your comments and suggestions are appreciated. Our standards are constantly evolving to better serve our clients and we view your voice as a blessing that can only make us better.

Thank you for trusting in our service and welcome to Cuba.

A big hug from the Rentas Monica team.

Después de que Airbnb llego a Cuba empezamos a considerar que tremenda oportunidad para los cubanos que tenían las posibilidades de abrir sus casas a personas de otras partes del mundo, para rentar una parte de su casa, un dormitorio y en otros casos espacios mas grandes y diversos. Sin embargo nos cuestionamos cómo funcionaría cuando una comunicación rápida y precisa constituyen uno de los puntos fuertes de Airbnb.

No fue hasta que mi esposa perdió su trabajo y mi hermana comenzó a quejarse de su trabajo actual, que empezamos a pensar seriamente en poner nuestras experiencias de nuestras anteriores formaciones y consideramos tratar de ayudar a los propietarios que por diversas razones no contaban con el tiempo, los medios, las condiciones o en algún momento el conocimiento para trabajar Airbnb y sus impresionantes posibilidades.

Por estas razones nace Rentas Monica y hoy en día esta compuesta por un pequeño grupo de profesionales que busca encontrar un punto de en común entre huespedes de todas partes del mundo y cubanos que abren las puertas de sus casas.

Nuestra meta radica en que podamos encontrar el mejor alojamiento de acuerdo a las necesidades de nuestros huéspedes y hacer entender a los propietarios la gran responsabilidad que viene con ello.

Como graduados profesionales con diferentes antecedentes académicos, pero con la vocación de ayudar a otros, hemos recogido nuestras experiencias de los viajes por Cuba y fuera de la isla, hemos conformado nuestro propio conjunto de normas que el propietario debe cumplir con el fin de proporcionar a sus huespedes la sensación de que se quedará en su segunda casa, solo que esta vez localizada en Cuba.

Siempre le comentamos a nuestros huéspedes que Cuba es un país diferente, donde los estándares a los que están acostumbrados no se cumplen en diversas ocasiones, pero nunca va a faltar las sonrisas y el amor en cada uno de los cubanos y estará siempre a su disposición mientras visite Cuba.

El cubano le encanta integrarse y relacionarse, por lo que la mayoría de los propietarios le proporcionará una sonrisa cálida y los mejores deseos. Usted puede ayudarnos a crecer con sus sugerencias, consejos y recomendaciones.

En no pocas ocasiones hemos modificado conceptos después de leer o escuchar las recomendaciones de nuestros invitados, por ello nos sentimos en deuda y continuamos evolucionando todo el tiempo.

Contar con su presencia en alguna de las propiedades que gestionamos será un placer.

Gracias por confiar en nuestro servicio y Bienvenido a Cuba

Un abrazo del equipo de Rentas Monica
