Kalina and Jesus were excellent hosts! Kalina reached out to me multiple times to see if we had any questions, she arranged airport pick up for us with Felix, and she was available throughout our trip to assist us with whatever we needed, including lending us a local mobile phone so that we could reach her. The apartment is absolutely beautiful and very clean and comfortable. The living room area was very cool and breezy and we didn't even need to use the AC in this area and we loved sitting out on the balcony drinking coffee and rum and enjoying the view. The ACs in the bedrooms work very well, the beds were comfortable, the water pressure in the showers were great, and the kitchen was fully stocked with everything that you could need to prepare or reheat food. We really appreciated and enjoyed the bottle of rum and water that Kalina left for us as a present. The apartment is in a beautiful neighborhood (Vedado), just blocks from the Malecon, a WIFI park, Fabrica de Arte, El Cocinero, and other great restaurants. (I highly recommend Bar Mediterraneo in Vedado if you love fish and seafood.) Depending on how much you like to walk and your heat tolerance, you could easily walk to Hotel Nacional or Hotel Melia Cohiba for a drink or if you needed to change additional money. Taxi rides to and from Havana Vieja are around 5-10 CUC depending on your bargaining ability and patience. It was a little challenging at times to get a taxi that could take us to Havana Vieja because not all taxis can take foreigners. You have to walk to the main road to find one. I recommend using a local driver and guide, like Felix who Kalina introduced us to, to learn about all of the main sights and points of interest in Havana, and to not have to struggle with trying to hail taxis. I will definitely stay here again if I come back to Cuba!

I booked Kalina & Jesús’s place for my dad and brother and they had the most AMAZING time! Kalina provided them with everything they needed. The place was just like it shows in the pictures and gave you a true authentic experience. They had no issues at all. I must say that they highlight of their trip was meeting Felix! Felix picked them up from the airport and also took them everywhere in Cuba. He was the most AMAZING tour guide. They can't stop talking about how wonderful he was in giving them a true Cuban experience. We look forward to visiting this genuinely beautiful country and staying at this beautiful apartment. Thank you again for everything!

Kalina is a wonderful host! She is very responsive and even provided a Cuban cellphone in case of emergencies. The apartment is spacious, and the kitchen is beautiful and well stocked for cooking - although we did not end up doing that. There is a grocery store close by, as well as several cool restaurants and La Fabrica! It is a bit of trek to Old Havana, but if you budget for the taxis (10-ish CUC per trip) it shouldn't be a problem. Kalina is great and the apartment is a relaxing place to stay!

Kalina was a great host and very helpful and friendly. The apartment was in a great location and had amazing views. Kalina was nice enough to give us a cell phone to use, it was very convenient! The neighborhood was safe. Kalina hooked us up with a driver named Felix who stayed with us the whole trip and gave us tours. Thanks Kalina, we will return!

The experience with Kalina and the air Bnb was amazing. There was contact between her and I well before I arrived at the apartment. She had an answer for every concern I had and it never took long for a response. I had a friend that was arriving into Cuba one day early than we all originally planned. The air bnb he was renting for the trip would not allow him to book an extra day. Kalina was nice enough to allow him to rent her Air bnb just for that one day/night, even though he wouldn’t be staying in this particular air bnb the rest of the trip. Once I arrived in Cuba, made it through customs, and retrieved my luggage, there was a driver waiting just outside the exit. The driver, Felix, was holding a small poster that displayed my name. Felix made sure my friends and I made it to the apartment, even though we all landed at separate times. This made the transition from the airport to the apartment quick and painless, seeing as Felix knew exactly where to go and he spoke very good English. Once I arrived at the apartment my friend, who stayed the previous night, gave me the keys and went to check into his own air bnb. He informed me that there was zero trouble checking into the air BnB, because Felix picked him up from the airport and Kalina was waiting at the apartment upon his arrival. An hour after I got settled into the apartment, Kalina came to introduce herself. She asked multiple times if there was anything that we needed or that the apartment was missing. There was no need! The apartment was in excellent condition. It was spacious and clean. The balcony had a nice view of the ocean (less than 5-6 blocks away) and an amazing view of the area. The bedrooms had extraordinary views of a huge church or church-like structure. The bed rooms had large beds (one King and one queen) with fesh clean linens on them. The bath rooms were clean and fully stocked with clean towels, toilet paper and soap. The kitchen had all the appliances one would need for everyday cooking and beverages making needs. All the dishes were very clean and well kept. The iron and ironing board were in great condition. The floors were clean enough to walk around in socks and not worry about getting them dirty. The apartment came with a house phone and a cell phone with important numbers programed into it for easy contact to the host or the driver. The only complaint was that the living room area was a bit warm. This was expected with 90 plus degree weather, but as long as you stayed in the bedroom areas you were fine. This was a common theme across all other air bnbs we visited, so I’m guessing it’s a normal thing here. The best part of the trip was Felix. He took us...

I truly enjoyed my stay at Kalina and Jesus apartment. The apartment is very spacious and well kept. It is conveniently located near El Cocinero and the Cuban art factory. Kalina was very warm and welcoming. She provided us with a local cell phone and a map. And gifted us a bottle of Havana rum. She also provided us with information on where to eat and places to visit as well as transportation options. Kalina & Jesus were very helpful. They were very responsive and could easily be reached by phone. After my friends left on an earlier flight Kalina came to check up on me at the apartment and even offered for me to stay at their home.
