Our stay was great - Sheyla was extremely timely with her responses over AirBnB and Amalia was an excellent hostess. They were able to provide information about points of interest and helped us a lot with logistics once we arrived. AC in the bedrooms was cold and the rest of the house stayed cool with a fan (we travelled in May). Being able to stay in a home was definitely a better experience that booking a hotel - we got to interact with the people a lot more. The house is a short walk to where all the international embassies are and despite the window bars and gate we felt extremely secure walking around, even late at night.

First the good, check in was timely and smooth. There are no bugs and the apartment was clean. The place has 3 good size bedrooms with air conditioning. One bedroom has a bathroom and the other 2 bedrooms share a bath. Other rooms were spacious. Felt safe and secure. Some of the issues, This place is hard to find and is in a visually dodgy neighborhood (although safe). You have to call for a taxi as there is no major roads in decent walking distance to catch a taxi. This is the ground floor of a 2 family home. The pics and description on airbnb seemed to suggest that it was a single family home. The front door lock is a challenge. Remote for TV/DVD is a bit tough to figure out. The alley off the kitchen smells really bad, like sewage, I would not suggest opening the door off the kitchen. The back bedroom that shares a bath has a strong moldy/musky smell to it. I am guessing there is a mold issue somewhere in the wall by the AC unit although I cannot confirm that. Common areas (Living room, Dining room and kitchen) had no air conditioning. I though because to the misleading description on a freestanding home and the neighborhood and distance to public transportation that this rental should be more moderately priced.

The home was wonderful and definitely in a very nice neighborhood. My only problem was the amount of money that we constantly paid for taxis to and from our airbnb as well as to and from the airport. It would be nice if a little more assistance could be provided in this ares for first timers in Cuba.

Hi everyone!!! My name is Sheyla I'm from Cuba but in the last three years I have lived in Brazil. I enjoy practicing sports and pilates, love animals and travel. The idea of join me to the Airbnb community came from my personal experience as a guest, which I totally loved , so I decided to do the same for others. Hope you enjoy my place and looking forward to meet you!!!
Best regards!!
