We only stayed for one night and it was our last night in Cuba. We met Marta and her husband and they seemed like very caring hosts. We wished we could have stayed longer. The apartment was very spacious, and the balcony garden was very lovely.

Marta Elena and Carlos were extremely welcoming and made us feel really at home. The flat is basic but has a wonderful verandah to relax on. It was hot while we were there so the air conditioning in the bedrooms was very welcome and effective. The flat is further away from old Havana than we were led to believe from the map. It is about 15 minutes by taxi or just over an hours walk. The only other small issue we had was that the flat is located close to a busy road and above a petrol station which led to a bit of noise and some fumes but we soon got used to it!

Response from Marta Elena:
Hi Simon, Thank you very much for your feedback and for staying with us. The misleading information about the flat location is an airbnb bug that we have been trying to fix without success. I think it has to do the way airbnb map locations in Cuba through (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) map. Locations in Havana are not well mapped due to lack of internet connection I guess . We will keep going working with airbnb to fix that. Yes, you are right its a busy road but unfortunately we are not able to solve that. Hope to have you guys again in our place in your next visit to Havana. Cheers, Rodney

Marta & Carlos are wonderful host. They strive to make sure your stay in Vedado/Havana is the best it can be. The apartment is in a great location. My family enjoyed the terrace and the views from the rooftop. Marta set a lovely table for breakfast at our request. Carlos is the master of good espresso. I truly miss the mangoes, guavas and papayas. Their English is good and they offered many helpful suggestions. The unit is walking distance from Karma (good restaurant), Parque Almendares, Fábrica de Arte Cubano, John Lennon park and great cheap ice cream at Yang Tse. Easy to get a taxi on the corner to Old Havana, Playa de Santa maria, Fustalandia, etc.. Hopefully we will able to visit again.

Marta and her husband were so nice and accomodating. The location was great- nice part of town, close to bus stops, the necropolis and the hop on and off bus tour, and the hip FAC night club. We loved the house- clean, comfortable beds and a beautiful terrace covered in plants. Marta helped us find taxis, recommended things to do and called places for us. The breakfast was great!! The fresh juice, endless coffee and fresh baked bread with butter and honey was to die for! She and her husband were so accomodating and sweet!!! Would definitely stay here again and recommend it to everyone!!

Marta Elena and her husband were so kind and helpful to us! Their English is much better than my Spanish. They directed us to a wonderful restaurant right around the corner, El Farallon (which incidentally is no where near where Tripadvisor says it is; it is on Calle 22, close to Calle 21, not where the Tripadvisor map indicates, which may explain the really mixed reviews - maybe there are 2 El Farallons? - anyway I had the best papas fritas in all of Cuba there). Dona Marta let us arrive early and leave late, and we had an enjoyable afternoon talking with them and learning about other places in Cuba we didn't have time to visit. The place is very clean and there is a lovely terrace shaded by a flowering tree. Getting a taxi to go into old town Havana is very easy from this neighborhood in the Vedado area. We hope to return one day and see the tortugas of Isla de la Juventud.

What a wonderful warm welcome to Havana! Marta, Carlos and Rodney were all brilliant. The apartment is clean and comfortable and the terrace is really beautiful. Breakfasts were great too. The location is on a nice residential street which feels very different from the bustle of the old town and central Havana. We did walk in to town one day but it is pretty far and used taxis otherwise, which are easy to come by.

Hi, I have been in the business of renting my property in Havana, Cuba for the last 8 years. My son living in Australia just started to advertise my property in Airbnb because my access to internet is limited. I am 69, mother of two and love to have people in my place. Along these years I have met so many guests! I have always received excellent feedback from my clients and if you decide to stay in my house you will enjoy the best of Cuban hospitality!
