Guests often search for this popular amenity
The Penthouse is located in the heart of the hustle and bustle of Habana Vieja. But, come upstairs (75 of them), and you will experience tranquility unusual for this vibrant neighborhood. Enjoy the breeze flowing throughout, the views from the rooftop, and the clean surroundings of this colonial home.

The space
The Penthouse is huge, at least by Habana Vieja standards.

There is a large living room, balcony onto the street (sometimes you can see Salsa and music classes being taught on the patio of the building across from the Penthouse), eat-in kitchen, and a private roof, with views of Habana.

There are two bedrooms included in the base price, but we just finished a third bedroom that we can add to the rental for an additional fee. The third bedroom will be locked during your stay if it is not rented by you, but we will not rent it to any other guests, so you will retain your privacy.

There is one bathroom in the apartment. There are 75 steps from street level to front door of the Penthouse.

Our favorite part of the house (other than its location and size) is that all the windows throughout create a constant breeze.

Where you’ll be

La Habana, Cuba

The Penthouse is in a 1937 colonial building, located:

-- one block from cobble-stoned Calle Obispo;

-- a few steps to countless bars, cafes, and restaurants (see the binder with local info in the living room by the door);

-- 5 minutes to Parque Central (air-conditioned buses to the nearest beach for ~ 4 CUC round trip, taxis; Internet, and stores);

-- 7 minutes to the Capitolio and the largest Habana Vieja vegetable market;

-- 8 minutes to the Malecon; and

-- smack in the middle of the most vibrant neighborhood in Cuba.

My listing is in English because it was prepared by my son and daughter in law who live in California. They will assist with reservations and your questions prior to arrival. I am studying English but will likely be able to communicate only in Spanish for some time.
