About this listing
Independent Apartment with ocean view. Lovely Havana residence which two bedroom with private bathroom. The apartment is located in front of the sea (Walking Malecon Avenue).
The zone of Vedado is a combination of quietness and amusement. La Rampa is the traditional place for an entertaining walk and meeting with the Cuban people. There´s no time in the day or night when people aren´t using this centric road intending to visit the big icecream shop Coppelia, to head for the Malecon (another venue of encounters for fun) or to visit the several night clubs (many of them run by the private sector that have just open after the realease of restrictions in Cuba). Precisely in La Rampa, a net of wifi started to work in July 2015 and you are likely to see in this area many people using their phones to get connected for the first time, although very common in most of the world, a very weird and new Cuban picture. For those music lovers, the offers are incredibly wide: it´s possible to watch live outdoor concerts in El Pabellon Cuba (La Rampa) or other places like Fábrica del Arte, a really interesting project that gathers fine arts, digital art, as well as live concerts. So regarding music is possible to listen to high quality one like jazz (La Zorra y El Cuervo, The Jazz Café), cuban trova, pop, traditional or even hip hop or rock. All this in Vedado, sometimes at walking distance, sometimes at 5-10 minutes by car.
In case the internet, swimming pools or other services are needed, you can get to the hotels around: the National Hotel, The Cohiba Hotel or The Riviera Hotel are the main options.
Finally, a large number of private restaurants have come up, some of them very well decorated and most of them with quite reasonable prices. All in all, Vedado is the symbol of the new in Havana and also is comparatively quieter than Old Havana.
Guests have access to the whole house. There´s a nice balcony and terrace from which you can see the daily common cuban life.

I am a friendly woman who likes living in family above all. I like arts very much, not only Ballet which I studied for 9 years, but also music, visual arts and of course the cinema. My husband and I are happily married in part thanks to a similar life motto. We lived in Ecuador for two years and enjoyed interacting with such an old and rich culture. We enjoy making people feel happy and give them a bit more than what they expect from us.
