We stayed here with our two boys and it was perfect. Very very clean, comfortable, breakfast every day for $5 per person (eggs, fruit, coffee). A short cab ride to anywhere you want to go. Philip even arranged for guides to show us around, and even a day trip out to Vinales, in a classic car! Best trip ever, we can't wait to go back!

This house is in a residential neighborhood and was perfect for our needs. It felt friendly, clean and safe, and the yard and patios of this house are lush and comfortable spots for hanging out. The hosts went out of their way to accommodate our special needs for vegan options, and let me use the blender to make smoothies. We were close to buses and taxis, and yet far away from the main roads to escape the major traffic, noise and exhaust. Their were lots of friendly children and people around the neighborhood, and there was a park nearby. Several restaurants were also close by as well as a few panaderias (bakeries). We look forward to going back there.

WARM CUBAN HOSPITALITY - We thoroughly enjoyed our stay with Mercy and Alberto and appreciated the chance to experience the crumbling grandeur of an old Vedado neighborhood. Their well cared for home is a quick walk from the Plaza de la Revolucion and a short cab ride to the Malecón. The lush front porch is perfect for relaxing on a hot day and listening to neighbors play dominoes out front. Our hosts prepared lovely breakfasts of tropical fruit, freshly squeezed juice and eggs. What Cuba lacks in bright paint and the latest appliances, Mercy and Alberto more than make up for with thoughtfulness and attention. We stayed with our two teenage boys and would happily return.

Philip User ProfilePhilip is a superhost.

I am an American citizen who resides in Havana with my wife and family. I first came to Cuba in 1999 drawn by the vibrant cultural life and unique lifestyle that exists here. In the ensuing years Havana became my second home and I now live here much of the year and run a travel enterprise.

My organization offers a full complement of travel solutions including lodging, guided tours, transportation, and customized itineraries (In accordance with Airbnb rules I can't mention the name our group on their website).

The private homes & apartments I manage on Airbnb are a selection of properties chosen for their attractiveness, comfort, excellent quality of service, and most importantly, my trusted relationship with the home owners who have authorized me to mange their homes.

All our Havana properties are listed here:

As many people discover - because of a lack of reliable information, travel resources, and basic infrastructure on the Island, travel planning to Cuba can be quite challenging. We offer these solutions.
