Bay House is a small and cozy house, very close to the center and to the Malecon of Cojimar. The view of the bay from your terrace is relaxing. It is surrounded by restaurants and cafes. This place makes it unique its view to the sea, with fishermen who daily typify the environment and give an entirely aunténtico atmosphere, very close to the center of Havana.

The space

We always welcome our guests with great courtesy and kindness. We explained in English or Spanish to them the run of the house, the main established rules and services we offer.

Guest access

The house is completely independent, so they have access to all of their spaces.

If you were looking for Ernest Hemingway, his spirit is definitely here. For the host, she was certainly more like a relative then anything else. We arrive in Cojimar, a first and certainly not a last. The property is 25 feet from the water. Again the AC was great. The apartment was just for us and we loved it. This is just a place to relax and unwind with history at your door step. The host even provided a staff member at no charge to give us a 411 on the area and a immediate contact person for any issues. We had none. The host name is Candy and she was delightful. The property was spacious. If you want to cook the fish you catch, her kitchen will help you...

We decided to end our trip with four nights in Cojimar. Checking in with Candy was a bit weird, and I left her house with at least five bug bites (although I realize this isn't something she can control.) We were offered breakfast for $5cuc which was great because most surrounding restaurants don't open until 10am. Breakfast was offered in her patio which was strange because she rents her patio out so you're essentially eating breakfast in someone else's airbnb. The patio in the Bay House was an amazing way to start each morning, and it looks a lot better than it does in the photos. The only issue I had with the house was that the room and bathroom were lacking windows. The bathroom was inside the room, and it had an accordion type door which was a little awkward to use while someone else was in the room. Alicia, the lady who cleaned the house, was one of the kindest people we came across while in Cuba. She offered to bring me bug spray from her own home when she saw how bad my bites were. However, we were a little annoyed that there wasn't a washer or dryer despite them being included in the amenities, but Alicia offered to hand wash our dirty clothes for a small cost. Overall, I recommend staying with Candy after you've spent a few days in Cuba and understand the prices. From what we heard, her taxi's were charging other guests almost 2x what a regular taxi should cost (which, once again, Candy has no control over.) Bay house was relaxing and for the price, it couldn't be beat. Our only regret was that we didn't spend more time in the town.

I always enjoy coming back to Candy's Bay House. She is one of the best hosts I've ever had and genuinely cares about her guests. The place, itself is located right by the water in a safe neighborhood with friendly neighbors. As an added bonus, Candy is just a few blocks away and always willing to help you out in any way possible. Looking forward to coming back next year!

Highly recommend staying here! Very safe, clean, and close to restaurants and markets. Everything was incredibly easy. Also, I recommend having the breakfast at least once. Candy and her staff are very helpful and taxis she arranged were always on time and even early to pick us up. Thanks!

I would not recommend this place - it is quite far from Havana and equally far from the Playas del Este where we wanted to go. There is nothing to do in the area itself and very difficult to get taxies. We spoke to some helpful locals who helped us but visitors would be reliant on the host if they did not speak Spanish. The host charges commission. The place is also extremely difficult to find (the taxi driver described it as 'the end of the world') and the host does not provide good directions. The host did not confirm the address via email or text so we had to call which was extremely expensive. The host did not have a helpful attitude.

Response from Candy:
For your information, the taxi driver you took on the day of your arrival is now cleared by the competent authorities, for drunk driving. Therefore, he didn´t find the address and he expressed himself badly. I understand that it was late at night. You, perhaps predisposed, were rude to your hostess upon arrival. You did not request any service, therefore, I don´t know what commission you are referring to. I respect your minority opinion, if you did not like the Hemingway´s Cojímar. If anything characterizes me, it is the amiability, delicacy and helpful with all my guests. Your friend was on the contrary, very kind and respectful.
